Eating Clean Nutrition Rules

Great. We know what eating clean is. We know what simple and complex carbs are.


Good question - I'm glad you asked!

You want to eat 3 basic groups of food each day. Complex carbs, lean protein, and healthy fats.  For a breakdown of what is specifically in each category, check out the picture at the bottom of the blog. It's all in there for you - but remember - the lists are NOT comprehensive. They are just a sampling!

Complex Carbs
Complex carbs should equal 55% of your daily food intake.

  • 35% (4 - 6 servings) should come from greens.
  • 20% (2 - 4 servings) should come from starch.

Lean Protein
Lean proteins should equal 27% (6 servings) of your daily food intake. Some of your complex carbs can even count as a lean protein (hello quinoa - pronounced KEEN-WAH)!

Healthy Fats
Healthy fats should equal 18% of your daily food intake.
