When asked, most people think they eat a "pretty clean diet", but what does that mean? Due to many factors beyond our awareness, I think that we've lost track of what constitutes a clean diet in America. You may be surprised to learn that much of the “normal” food options available today do not remotely resemble the food your grandparents grew up eating.
Roughly 70 plus years ago, there were no fast food restaurants, plastic bags or processed foods. In the 1950s, people still sat at the dinner table as a family and TV dinners were just being introduced as a novelty. Fast forward to 2020 and we find every food under the sun available either frozen, in a package, or ready to eat out of a box.
The impact of our convenient, ready-to-eat diet can be seen in our society in the form of obesity, chronic illness, and auto-immune conditions. And still Americans think their diet is "pretty good". My question is: “As compared to what?” As compared to your grandparents' diet when they were growing up or as compared to your work colleague who needs to lose 100 lbs?
Somewhere along the line we've lost perspective and forgotten what real foods look and taste like. We have forgotten that we were made to eat real food and not manufactured food. We forgotten that “food-like substances” like fast foods and added flavoring are not found in nature, but instead are manufactured in a facility by human hands.
Today, I'd like to share with you 14 tips on how to get back to eating a diet rich in whole foods, which would help you discover how to calm inflammation and decrease your risk of chronic illness.

Feeling tired and stressed all the time, not able to catch up on lost sleep, “crashing” on the couch at night after dinner and constantly feeling overwhelmed and out of energy could be red flags for a condition called “adrenal fatigue”.
Although conventional medicine does not recognize this as a medical condition, millions of Americans experience the above symptoms and continue to struggle with a condition that leaves them unsupported and lost.
The good news is that this condition is treatable and reversible. Let’s take a look at what you can do to reclaim your life.
