Is Clean Eating Really Better?

There is a lot of talk recently about cleaning eating, which has some wondering exactly what it is. Clean eating is a modern term for eliminating processed foods from your diet and focusing on eating organic foods from a raw state that you personally prepare with cold pressed oils and a minimal use of salts, sugars and dairy products. While some regimens of cleaning eating are stricter than others, a commitment to cleaning eating is better than the alternative of  ingesting processed foods that can lead to many negative unintended consequences of unhealthy weight, disease, chronic fatigue and recurrent illness.
