"There are two ways of exerting one's strength: one is pushing down, the other is pulling up."- Booker T. Washington
Though my own journey, I have learned that the struggle to gain self-discipline in order to really master your body starts with food. We have been culturally conditioned to think about food as more than what it is—FUEL for your body. In fact, food is the most basic form of consistent control.

The Benefits of Clean Eating
What Clean Eating is Not
When describing clean eating, it's important to point out what eating clean is not. Clean eating is not a diet, although it is a great way to reduce body fat, lose weight, and keep the weight off. Clean eating is a lifestyle that requires time, commitment, and pre-planning and is not just a way of eating that can accomplish weight loss or overall health just by doing it on the weekends only. Clean eating is not about deprivation, avoiding food groups, counting calories or starvation, but about making healthy food choices and providing the body with the best foods possible.
