We get it. Because the truth is, the only healthy and sustainable way to lose weight is not some big secret, but something nutritionists and doctors who don't hock diet plans have known for years: Eat clean. What is clean eating? In a nutshell, it means eating mostly real foods in their whole, unprocessed, or fresh form—think whole vegetables, fruit, nuts, meat, seafood, plain dairy, and whole grains.

OK, that all sounds great,you're thinking, but how can clean eating actually help me lose up to 5 pounds in 1 week? When you cut the processed junk, you limit your intake of chemicals in processed and industrially raised foods that have been shown to trigger weight gain. At the same time, you're filling up on healthy whole foods high in protein and fiber that will keep you full for hours while stoking your metabolism, balancing your blood sugar levels, and actually working with your body—not against it—to help you drop pounds.
Still, clean eating is not as easy as flipping a switch, especially if you're used to eating packaged foods or aren't some label supersleuth. And clean eating for weight loss only works when you eat actual real foods, along with enough protein, fat, and fiber—but not too many calories. This is why it helps to have a plan, and we've created a free one for you.
