Clean Eating & Keto

17-Mar-2018

As much I love Keto... sometimes it feels processed & not too healthy! That is why I had a close look on this issue and come up with the following. What means actually Clean Eating as such; it is about eating whole foods, or "real" foods — those that are un- or minimally processed, refined, and handled, making them as close to their natural form as possible. However, modern food production has become so sophisticated that simply eating whole foods can be a challenging proposition these days. Here a list of things you should not eat while sticking to a Clean Eating Plan:

 

  • Refined grains

    • E.g. White rice, white flour, grits and cream of wheat

  • Pesticides, Additives & Preservatives

    • Mainly GMO & no organic production 

  • Unhealthy fats

    • E.g. Butter, margarine, shortening, beef, pork fat, fatty cuts of beef, pork, lambdark chicken meat, poultry skinhigh fat & dairy foods (whole milk, butter, cheese, sour cream, ice cream) plus tropical oils (coconut oil, palm oil, cocoa butter)

  • Sugar

  • Salt

  • Highly refined foods 

    • E.g. all Net Carb products which are artificially made 

So, looking at this, will make it complicated to eat clean while being on a Keto Diet. But let me twist that around for you, by doing the following:

  • Go Diary free

  • Go off Sugar 

  • Reduce your Salt intake to a maximum

  • Go off refined foods

  • Go for healthy fats

  • Go Organic & non GMO 

Okay, that sounds like a lot and makes you think that you can not eat anything anymore. No worries here is my list of products allowed (go always for the organic, non GMO version when possible). To be fair, I have twisted some things, just to make it more enjoyable and to make it also easy to eat on a day to day base, so you will be on a 95% base instead of 100%, but that is for me more then acceptable:

  • Fats

    • Olive & Avocado Oil

    • Nut Butter

    • Coconut Butter (eat in moderation)

  •  Dairy

    • Coconut, Cashew or any other Nut Milk

    • Beef Protein

    • Almond Cheese

  • Flour

    • 100% nut flours

  • Animal Proteins

    • Free-range Chicken breast & thigh

    • Sirloin & lean ground beef

    • Sea-food

    • Free-range Eggs

  • Fruit

    • Avocado

    • Tomato (in moderation)

    • Raspberries

    • Blackberries

    • Strawberries

    • Blueberries

    • Lemon

    • Plump (in moderation)

  • Veggies

    • Broccoli

    • Zucchini

    • Spinach

    • Asparagus

    • Kale

    • Brussels sprouts

    • Cauliflower

    • Green lectures

    • Cucumbers

    • Celery

    • Bell Pepper  (in moderation)

  • Sugar & Salt

    • 100% natural chocolate & cocoa

    • Stevia

    • Sea Salt

Even this is a clean eating plan you still need to follow your macros & calories per day. But I will cover this in another post the next week. So good luck giving it a try, but you will like it. It will take some adaption at the beginning, but it will have a great impact on your health and you also will lose more, promise!
