When you are busy mum, especially if you have a child with special needs, you are always on the go. Therefore eating healthy is very important to maintaining good health and energy levels.

After the birth of my second son I could not get rid of the stubborn fat around my stomach. My body did not have time to adjust from the first pregnancy. This was because my boys were only 14 months apart. Also my first son was diagnosed with a rare and degenerative condition and I did not have time to workout as much but I was not happy with my body.

But then I discovered James’ book on clean living and I lost 10 kilos in three weeks. I wasn’t hungry and I was healthy.

If you are trying to lose weight? Forget about fab diets, shakes and starving yourself to death.

Green is the new weight loss secret and the best way to lose excess fat from your body and keep it off for good. You can also rid your body of toxins by eating the right foods.

Here is the clean living secret. 

Breakfast:

  • Boiled or grilled chicken breast (avoid adding oil)

  • Steamed spinach or boy chow

  • Boiled egg (optional)

  • Cup of green tea (no sugar)

Snack

  • Small handful of nuts

Lunch

  • Grilled chicken, turkey or fish

  • Mixed salad leaves

  • Small carrot (optional)

  • Avocado

Dinner

  • Brussel sprouts

Drink lots of water, at least 4 liters a day and take an extra fiber supplement. If you do this after seven days you will look and feel great.

Once you have reached your desired weight goal continue to eat from all the healthy food groups but in small portions. 

Foods that should be included in a healthy and clean eating experience for any busy mums and dads

Don’t be afraid of fat!!

This truly works and if you commit to eating and exercising this way, you will see results and your body will thank you for it.
