- Take before pictures. I recommend taking them in a sports bra and short for Females and shorts for men. But I definitely understand being nervous about taking pics and especially posting them…BUT it kind of reminds me of going to the doctor…I had to wear that AWFUL gown & was half naked but I’m doing it for my health and I know the doctor isn’t judging me. Hey I know they suck… no one likes to take them but in 30 days… you’ll be PROUD to show people how far you’ve come. If you don’t want to share your pictures with the group then make sure you save them to a file on your computer! I need 4 pictures, one to the front with arms down, one to the front making a muscle, one to the side and one to the back with muscles.
Note: I didn’t take these pictures (only 2) and it was biggest regret I have with all of this.

- What fitness program are you doing?
- Why are you doing this challenge? I want this to be at least a paragraph long. Really dig deep as to the reason why you want to accomplish this goal. Make it emotional, and refer to it often and change as needed! It is important to set goals and to take small steps towards achieving them. It’s exciting to set your mind toward achieving a major goal, such as losing 50 lbs but it’s important to set smaller goals along the way so you feel motivated to keep going.
- Choose a goal to reach one week from your start date: It could be losing 2 pounds, ditching cream and sugar in your coffee or going for a walk each evening. Set a new goal each week and stick with the habits you created from the past week.

This is a great blog that I found researching Clean Eating.
So now… it’s time to clear up some misconceptions about clean eating, and how we can make sure we straighten it all up.
1) Clean eating doesn’t involve sweets: Clean eating involves sweets, but it isn’t the “sweet” you’re used to having. White granulated sugar isn’t clean, but muscovado is. It’s also a much different flavor, as well, and you’d have to get used to that. Your favorite brands of ice cream might not be clean, but there are many which are… and they are delicious. Your favorite brownies might not be clean, but there are many which are… and they, too, are delicious. You just have to do a little digging to find the flavors, recipes and brands (if that’s your thing) you like the best.
2) Clean eating means no pork or beef: I hear this often because clean eating is mostly associated with people who aren’t omnivorous. That being said, clean eating isn’t only the home of the vegans, vegetarians, pescetarians or what have you. To eat clean beef, it’d need to be raised ethically, fed proper for a cow, not fed anything genetically modified, and not washed down with ammonia, to say the least. You find lots of people in the clean eating community who abstain from these types of meat because the price is a barrier. Not that there’s anything wrong with the price, but if you can get you protein from a cheaper source, many choose to do so. Lots of people abstain for ethical reasons, as well, and believing in food ethics is what brings them to the community. Don’t be swayed by that.
3) If you can’t be 100% clean, forget it: I believe that lots of people feel that trying to convert to clean eating is all for naught if you can’t dive in 100% on your first go. Honestly, I think that diving in head first 100% is a disaster waiting to happen. Not because it’s expensive – though I am an admitted el cheapo – but because when you live your life eating so much processed food, deli meats, and bad seasonings, you get used to food tasting a certain way and you become disappointed by the food you’re relegated to through clean eating. There are more flavors beyond “sweet,” “salty” and “omnomnomnomnomnom.” Taking it one item, one replacement at a time allows you to explore those flavors and not overwhelm yourself.
4) Clean eating is just about food: Clean eating also has a large environmental component to it, as well. If you’re eating less processed food, you’re creating less trash. There are no boxes to open with individually wrapped powdered/liquified ingredients to pour and mix together inside. There is no aluminum package to tear apart to pour contents out of. There aren’t wrappers on wrappers on wrappers to manage. It saves trash.
There’s also the hopefulness of how converting more and more people to clean eating could potentially mean more of an investment in a better model for raising beef and other factory farmed animals, but we’re still such a long way from there.
5) “Clean eating” is not the same as “eating a clean diet:” whereas one refers to the lifestyle I lead, the other refers to the concept of not cheating on your diet. Clean eating isn’t a diet, it is a way of life. You can “diet” and eat clean during it, but that concept of “dieting” has no place in clean eating. Y’all know I am anti-dieting, for real. You can have bread. You can have sweets.
If you’d like to learn a little more about clean eating, I’ve got two helpful posts that might shine a little light on the way I live.
Do you still have questions about clean eating? What misconceptions did you have about clean eating before you dove in?
