download 1We’re over half way through the 30 Day Clean Eating Challenge at the LC and everyone seems to have found their feet with it. People have now fallen into a routine of organising their food and having set meals which they go to in a hurry. Planning in advance has proved to be a key part of eating clean as prepping foods really cuts down at meal times. The weekends are definitely the hardest time to resist those foods you have to avoid however, having found some clean treats (check the display board outside the spin room) I’m finding them much easier. With a little research, there’s a healthy option for nearly every meal and it’s been really enjoyable cooking them.

tumblr m9ee0biv2E1qdei8mI’ve been hearing some really good feedback from those participating. Those who are doing it for weight loss purposes have seen results so far which is amazing! I’m doing it for other reasons, mainly to see what I feel like while avoiding foods lacking in nutrients. While I thought I’d miss dairy, the almond/coconut milk alternative is great and I haven’t really thought about regular milk. Small pieces of dark chocolate have been satisfying my sweet tooth as well. The only part of this challenge I’ve started to really struggle with is breakfast as I’m finding it really time consuming (I need to be more organised!) especially when I need to be in work at 6am. Heading in to the final full week, I’m going to try and prep some yummy breakfasts the night before.

Keep up the positive feedback and keep facebooking and tweeting us your thoughts!!!

We’re now into the second week of the Clean Eating Challenge and we’ve had our first weekend which was, unfortunately for us, a bank holiday. While

cakes everyone else was out drinking and eating whatever they like; we were keeping it clean. For me, this was really hard as I was at festival in Bristol watching everyone tuck into chips and burgers. Instead I snacked on lots of fruit and found an amazing stand that sold curried goat and sweet potato fries – a surprisingly tasty meal!

As a result of the weekend, a lot of the gym team made healthy, clean treats to snack on to satisfy some cravings. We are putting some of these ideas up on the display board outside the spin room so keep an eye out! I’m still enjoying the challenge as I feel like I have a lot more energy than before and I really like experimenting with all the different foods you can eat – we’d really like to hear some of your ideas though. Tell us what you’ve been eating on twitter and facebook!

Keep up the good work!

We’re now a few days into the 30 days and there have been mixed reactions from different people. Generally speaking, most people have felt hungrier throughout the day but have started to combat that by eating more clean snacks (fruit and nuts mainly). Lyndsey from the Sales team said that she’s been eating more than she ever has before. This is a good thing! By eating more clean foods throughout the day you’re likely to boost your metabolism and promote weight loss. This is particularly important for those of you that usually skip breakfast or lunch in order to cut calories.

We’ve also had lots of really positive feedback from members that are participating in the challenge. There have been loads of new meal ideas (which we’ll post on facebook and twitter regularly – my favourite are the paleo pancakes!) and lots of buzz about their food preparation for the week. New people are getting involved all the time, so it’s not too late for you to sign up!

 

unnamedPersonally, I’ve found being organised the hardest part of the challenge. When eating clean it’s important to prep your food for the day to avoid having to buy snacks and meals. As a result, I’ve been trying to make larger portions of my dinner so that I can have them for lunch the next day. On the other hand, I found the shop at the beginning of the week the easiest food shop I’ve ever done! It was so easy to pick up loads of fresh fruit, veg and meat:

 

I’m really enjoying the meals too – it’s not restrictive. There are so many foods you can eat! I’m looking forward to the next few weeks...

Keep up the good work!!
