Hi Clean Eaters. Good Monday morning to you...
I will be responding to reader questions this week, however I wanted to share an interesting response to The Eat-Clean Diet I came across on another blog. Read below for the response and my comments.... feel free to share your own:
The Eat-Clean Diet: No sugar, white flour, alcohol and processed foods.
I don't know how long anybody could last on this one. Can you imagine sending your child to a birthday party on this plan? This could never work for a kid. And I don't really think this could work for an adult. It is too restrictive. How about going for moderation instead of total deprivation? Nicole Kidman and Halle Berry are on their own with this one!
Thank you for taking the time to at least review my Eat Clean lilfestyle. I admire a woman with a passion. I think you give me too much credit - I am no celebrity.
That being said I will add that it is hard to argue with good results. All families who chose to Eat Clean and avoid sugar and processed foods notice favorable changes. Children are less agitated, present with less mood changes, have fewer or no night terrors, are calmer in the classroom, have improved mental clarity and improved sleep quality.
You suggest that most kids can't survive on the Eat Clean lifestyle I recommend. I suggest that most kids can't survive on the traditional North American diet we see today. To wit, increased obesity and overweight rates, increased diabetes in all its' forms and I could go on.
I feel like a million bucks and I have not been sick in 10 years. Must be the Clean food I am eating!
