The mathematics behind clean eating

Clean eating must be made a priority for a good health and weight loss. However, it is something that is often ignored by many. Also, several diet plans have been introduced by several people for weight loss, it might be overwhelming to read and follow them all. So, here is a simple formula which we have put forth for you to get an idea of what is the right way of eating for better health.

Before we give the mathematical formula behind clean eating, let us define the list of simple parameters involved in the math – protein, carbohydrates, fat, fruits & veggies. Here are three math rules you need to remember:

Protein + Carbohydrates = Weight gain

Protein + Fat = Weight maintenance 

Protein + Fruits & Veggies = Weight loss

Protein + Carbohydrates = Weight gain

Are you looking to gain weight? Consume more protein rich food with every meal along with carbohydrates. Carbohydrates get converted into sugar which inevitably increases the body weight. If you are NOT looking for weight gain then, ditch this formula.

Protein + Fat = Weight maintenance

Contrary to the belief that fat increases the weight, fat actually aids in weight maintenance. The Ketogenic diet is the best example of this wherein one chooses a fat rich diet with protein and vegetables. If you are looking to maintain the weight, choose good fat like Almonds, Walnuts and Cashew. They are high in pH value as well. Combine it with protein and consume with every meal.

Protein + Fruits & Veggies = Weight loss

If you are truly looking to lose weight, follow the formula above and ditch carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are the culprit that aids in weight gain and ditching any food that contains carbohydrates would make it easy for you to lose weight. However, do not forget to consume protein and combine it with vegetables and fruits – remember the 80/20 rule; consume 80% vegetables and 20% fruits for best results. Also, this formula is truly alkaline. In order to keep a balance, it would be good to consume fat rich food from time to time rather than not consuming them at all.

Hope this formula based approach for good health is useful for you. Comment away your thoughts!
