HERE ARE SOME FOOD MYTHS AND TRUTHS ABOUT CLEAN EATING:
I wonder how can any food be bad? There is nothing like “bad foods” if consumed mindfully.
Let me help you more with this,
After having a tempting meal, which you know was low in nutrients but great in taste, try to have the nutrients you missed earlier through the day forward.
What makes a food bad is your consumption frequency. Even having nutritious food too frequently and not treating yourself with some snacks and fun foods, will make you mentally ill which is also a sort of unhealthy.
Fix a routine, have nutritious foods in 8 out of ten your meals and consider it “clean eating” and you can have fun for the remaining 2 meals and consider it the happy meal and not bad food.
Chocolates are unhealthy:
Not all chocolates are unhealthy, yes too much sugar is not good but the darker the better. Chocolates that are at least 70 percent dark are totally good to go if you aim for clean eating.
Dark chocolates act as antioxidants for the body and hence are a part of what you call clean eating. It helps reduce heart disease risk. It also improves the functioning and performance of body.
