    Eating clean? As if food can be divided into dirty and clean haha.

    If you mean low calorie meals, then chicken with a spice blend made with a pestle & mortar. Dat fragrance. Then just rub it into the chicken breast to marinade, cook it with little to no oil. Serve with spinach and steamed coriander rice..err thats about it.

    Clean eating is a marketing gimmick - it doesn't mean anything or have any scientific evidence. It's just a load of obsessions and fears about food wrapped up into one, easy to understand fad.

    Just eat normally!

    Even that is an understatement - anyone who thinks that making the choice to eat clean is going to directly affect their body composition simply doesn't understand basic physiology and the processing of macronutrients.

    That's the basic premise. Unfortunately, many people take it as a total lifestyle choice - a "do not touch dirty food, for it is the devil, will make us fat and will not be adequate for making gains!" type of philosophy.

    I do find it amusing when guys in the gym have asked me for diet advice and I've told them "Use a macro calculator to get your recommended caloric and protein intake; stick with those and get a good balance of carbs and fats, but no need to be specific as long as the calories are in check and protein is adequate and from good sources; and try not to fill your macros with crap for the sake of your health, but if you wanna eat a little junk here and there then go for it" - they normally say something like "Oh, ok, thanks mate" but look at me as if to say "Come on, it can't be that simple, stop BSing me!" :rofl: Eating healthily doesn't mean sticking to all the most boring foods known to man :top:

    Yeah, as I said to the other guy, the basic premise behind eating clean has long since been lost. Nowadays "body coaches" are pushing the idea that eating clean is the way forward for fat loss, because it's easier to ensure that their clients aren't overeating that way - you naturally don't eat as much when your options are that ****ing boring :rofl: However, you can still eat a bit of this and a bit of that and still be eating a healthy and balanced diet.

    I just eat tasty home cooked food all the time. I went on a ketogenic diet at one point for a few months and became a gigantic retard with an eating disorder. Just eat tasty food and make sure it's not all garbage and exercise. You'll be much happier than tracking your calories and each individual nutrient and you'll be healthy too.

    Having a guideline is useful, though.

    Yeah, thing is a lot of people have a tendency to either overeat or undereat, in which case tracking macros becomes essential. As I say though, no need to overcomplicate it - get enough protein, track your calories by any means (very easy with all the apps around, though I've been in the habit of doing it mentally for a couple years now) and make a conscious effort to opt for foods that possess a good micronutrient profile for health reasons. The 80:20 ratio rule in regards to healthy food:whatever you fancy is a good guideline as to where your calories come from.
