A Clean Diet = Fruitful Workouts
While on your quest to lose weight, you may have heard that shedding pounds starts in the kitchen, and it’s completely true. The first thing you need to do to reach a healthier weight and create a lasting blueprint for success is transform your dietary habits. How do you do this? With healthy, life-giving foods, knowledge and self-control.
Once you get clean eating down pat, it’s the perfect time to add exercise into your routine. If you add in the activity before you start following a healthier diet and have an understanding of portion control, you will likely begin to take in more calories than you need. This is because exercise will speed up your metabolism and make you hungrier. Here’s how to revamp your daily food intake before breaking a sweat:

Say goodbye to sugar and refined carbs
You may be thinking as you read this “I could never cut out sugar!” But let me be the first one to tell you that once you get over the hump, it’s actually a lot easier than you think. This is because sugar is extremely addictive and once you finally clear it out of your system, boom, cravings disappear!
On the flip side, when you continue eating sugar, you’re basically at the mercy of your body’s cravings. And sugar has been shown to mess with the satiety hormones in our bodies, so we actually end up eating more calories than we would have otherwise.
In the same way, refined carbs (which lack fiber) move quickly through our digestive systems, causing blood sugar spikes that can make us tired, hungry and irritable not long after eating them.
Tips for Success: Clear out unhealthy sugary foods, sodas and candies from your kitchen and replace them with healthier options. Have naturally-sweet foods around such as fruit that can help you quench sugar cravings. 310 lemonade mixes are also great to have in place of unhealthy drinks/treats since they are sugar-free (with no artificial sugars), delicious and help boost your energy.
Cut out processed foods (and analyze food labels)
That bag of potato chips or the candy bar from the snack machine may be screaming your name, but you can pretty much guarantee it’s chock full of ingredients that are going to harm your health and weight loss goals. Processed foods are commercially-prepared in order to be more convenient but are often lacking nutrients and contain large amounts of sodium, unhealthy fats and carbs, and sugar.
These highly-manufactured foods may also contain artificial or chemical ingredients that can disrupt your hormones and invite toxins into your system. A good rule of thumb is to check product labels, and anything with a long laundry list of unrecognizable ingredients should be passed up.
Tips for Success: If you were previously eating processed foods, you’re probably looking for quick and convenient. 310 Shakes are extremely easy to fit into busy, on-the-go lifestyles while being very nutritious; they also don’t contain sugar, artificial or chemical ingredients.

Choose nutrient-dense foods
If it’s grown from the earth, it’s your best option! Start to love fruits and veggies in all shapes and sizes and choose organic whenever possible. Other great options include lean proteins, healthy fats (such as from avocados, nuts, fish, seeds and more), healthy whole grains, low-fat dairy, legumes and fresh herbs.
These foods will fill you up at a low-calorie cost and provide your body with the nutrients it needs to give you lasting energy and boost your immunity, as well as help you drop pounds.
Tips for Success: A great way to easily add additional vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and more into your daily life is with 310 superfood juice, which contains over 100 superfoods in each serving. You can optimize your digestion and greatly increase your nutrient intake with this daily, tasty juice.
Eat smaller, more frequent meals and snacks
Now that you know what to eat, you also need to know when to eat. The best way to grab the reigns on your appetite is by having 5-6 small meals throughout your day, which can also be broken up into 3 moderate meals and 2-3 snacks. By eating every 2-3 hours, you can ensure you make healthy choices since you’ll never be too famished that you’ll be tempted to hit up the snack machine or binge on fast food.
Many people equate healthier eating with being hungry all the time, but it’s actually quite the opposite. Instead, you should be continuously satisfied by low-calorie, lasting, healthy foods.
Tips for Success: Ensure your success by planning and preparing your meals in advance, so you always have a healthy meal or snack ready for you. 310 Shakes make this system easy since you will replace two of your regular meals with them each day. In addition, 310 Thin can help you control your appetite even more between meals and snacks.
Drink more water and healthy fluids
One of the easiest ways to improve your health and benefit your weight loss stat is to add more water and healthy fluids into your day. Keeping your body hydrated is essential to feel energized for daily tasks, helps to boost your metabolism, and keeps you feeling full in between meals and snacks.
Drinking water is also a great way to detox your body daily, flushing out toxins from environmental sources and processed foods.
Tips for Success: All of your healthy fluid intake doesn’t have to come from just water. Healthy drinks such as 310 Lemonade, 310 Tea, 310 Juice and 310 detox clay can all be consumed throughout the day to help you stay hydrated and feel your best. In addition, these beverages will help you detox your body even more for great weight loss results.
