I watched a great documentary on the plane over to London this weekend that confirmed everything to me!! Not that I needed any further confirmation. My results speak for themselves.
It’s incredible the amount of sugar you can consume without even realizing it!!
Can you believe – The average American person consumes 42 teaspoons of sugar a day! The average American family consumes 20lbs of sugar per week.
The guy in the documentary had a lean eating program very similar to mine. Lean clean and simple. He went on an experiment for two months – he consumed the same food as the Average American. Foods such as: Pasta Sauce, Fruit flavored Yoghurt, Smoothies, Bread, Bagels, Muffins and pre made Salad Dressing, Granola, Granola Bars of various kinds, Cereals, and flavored Coffees Etc,. He did not pig out at all – he really just ate what an average person eats on a typical day.
In two months he gained over 20lbs and put on 7 inches around his waist. Shocker!!
When I started my Lean eating program, the main foods I removed were Granola – granola and protein bars – Pasta – Cheese – all the starchy carbohydrates, Pulses and Beans and Chips. I lost 10lbs and 7% body fat in 2 months.
My eating plan is quite simply, clean. There are no hidden ingredients in what I eat.
More details about what I do eat in my next blog!!
