Simple ways to eat healthy during the holiday

While it may sound simple enough, it's pretty challenging to stick with a clean healthy eating plan. If it were easy then everyone would be lean and confident about their body. So what's the secret to long-term, clean eating success even during the holidays?

How-To-Eat-Clean Secret #1: Keep It Balanced. So many fat loss strategies out there encourage eating only from one category of food: soup, grapefruit, salad, chicken breast. No one sticks with highly restrictive, one-food-only diets for very long, and you're no exception. To make your clean eating plan last, keep your diet balanced with a range of healthy, real foods.

How-To-Eat-Clean Secret #2: Don't Put a Label On It. How many times have you uttered the words I'm on a diet? If eating clean means you're on a diet, then you're not committed enough to make this a way of life. True fat loss success comes when clean eating is second nature, and not a temporarily imposed sentence.

How-To-Eat-Clean Secret #3: Have Patience. Wouldn't it be great if a week of clean eating could erase a decade worth of indulgences? Look for, and acknowledge, each and every small victory along the way to your long-term goal. Notice each pound, each inch and each pant size. These accomplishments build on one another until you reach your ultimate goal. Just remember that big changes take consistent, long-term effort. Be patient.

How-To-Eat-Clean Secret #4: Have a Plan. This is the most important step in your clean eating quest, without it you'll flounder around without direction and will likely find yourself starting into the bottom of a bowl of ice cream. Spend time writing out your do's and don'ts for your clean eating plan.

The healthiest, cleanest foods are fruits, vegetables, greens, nuts, seeds, eggs, seafood and lean meats. Stick with these healthy secrets first, and avoid the holiday party weight gain!
