I did pretty good today... But I found breakfast DISGUSTING! Is there supoosed to have a rancid taste? I am wondering if some of my products were still good such as the oatmeal and the flaxseed. Anyone know where the bad taste could come from?

Most likely the flax, it is prone to going rancid. That's why you're supposed to keep them in the freezer, or buy whole and only ground a few days or a week's worth and keep in the refrigerator.

Sorry ladies, I haven't been around in a few days!

I used to take bee pollen in a pill form b/c I thought it was a terrible smell but I've gotten use to having it in my oatmeal over the past few months. It could be either that taste that you're not used to or the flax was old, or you didn't refrigerate the wheat germ.
But I'm proud of you Flo for sticking to it!

We should definitely start a support group for Clean Eating, this thread is cool with me or should we start it in another area in the forum?
I'm also a member on the Tosca Reno forum and everyone there is eating clean, they've got some great ideas there too!

I've had a bad week myself (TOM) plus work is extra busy and life in general has made me so busy, I haven't had time to focus on exercise or preparing meals for the week...but I'm still managing to eat clean!

What exactly is the clean eating diet? From the way she describes it, it sounds like stuff I already eat. Though to be honest, it might be portion control thats off for me. Does she have a book?

Hi Hippechic, yes there's actually a series on the Eat-Clean Diet by Tosca Reno. You can find everything on the books here: www.eatcleandiet.com

Basically, it's eating natural, unprocessed, clean foods and definitely watching portion control. You eat 5-6 smaller meals throughout the day (including snacks) every 2-3 hours and each meal should have a proper balance of lean protein, healthy fat, and complex carbs. I would suggest picking up one of the books in the series for more info because it tells you everything you need to know about portion control and eating clean. Her newest book is the original re-vamped with new information, it's called The Eat-Clean Diet Recharged, she also has a couple of cookbooks, training journals, a workout book, an Eat-Clean Diet book for men and one for families and kids (There's a whole bunch more than I thought I guess!)

It's definitely worth it, I love eating clean!

Default Waiting on Book

Good Morning, I ordered the clean eating recharged and it's suppose to get here next tuesday or wednesday (estimated delivery date from Walmart) I so am wanting to start this monday but I won't have my book. I have searched and found the actual eatcleandiet web site but looking at all the meal plans I still don't understand what I'm suppose to eat. I know it's eating clean but is it an actual plan like portion size,certain foods and so on? Like so many posters on 3 fat chicks I have been on every diet out there. My latest was trying the fatsmash again. I truly love eating that way but as usual didn't stick with it due to I saw no progress in five days (I know I shouldn't count on loss in five days) I know my problem is I don't stick with anything for more then 9 days but after researching this diet on the eatcleandiet site and reading all of ya'lls posts I think this may be the one I truly can stick with. If anyone could just tell me what to eat the first two days I would appreciate it I'm sure my book will be here by the time I'm on day 3. Thanks in advance

devadiva, thank you very much for the info. The only problem I will have is I only drink crystal light and I only eat oatmeal if its made into a cookie, which would be a healthy cookie(oats,splenda,cinnamon,egg whites,butter spray) I just can't stand the texture of oatmeal. I can't wait to get my book. I could of bought it at target but they wanted over $20.00 and walmart online has it for $11.00 plus $2.00 shipping fed ex. I'm use to weighing food so I will have to figure out how much a palm size is. I have hands like a five year old so I would be getting very little food. I hope to have great success like you have
