When you are trying to eat clean, you often end up wondering “What should I eat?”. I hope that you will find some inspiration from the following meal ideas. Try to plan ahead the meals for the next day because when you are hungry, you tend to make poor choices regarding food.

Feel free to mix the ideas, selecting the ones you like best and to diversify as much as you like.

Tip 1: Eat 3 times per day (portion size 250-300 grams) and have 2 snacks between meals.

Tip 2: For faster weight loss, I recommend replacing one meal per day with soup (any type you enjoy, but especially vegetable soup – low in calories, high in nutrients, perfect for detoxing).

Tip 3: When you are cooking in the pan, try to use an oil spray instead of pouring the oil, this way you will limit excess calories.
