This time I’m going to make a bit of a case for “clean eating” because I think it doesn’t deserve all the ridicule that it gets online, and especially among the “cool crowd” that love to showcase not only how good their bodies look but also how heinous their diets are.

I don’t know about you, but if I had to choose between the diet of your average clean eater that thinks sugar makes you fat and gluten causes leaky gut and the diet of your average IIFYMer that doesn’t like to waste calories on nutritious foods like fruit and vegetables, I’ll take the former every time, and I’ll explain why in this episode.

I’m also going to talk about a style of dieting that gives us the best of both worlds — the quality of clean eating and the adaptability of flexible dieting — something that I’ve dubbed “flexible clean eating.”

I know, very creative of me.

This style of dieting is perfect for improving not just your body composition but your health and vitality, as well. It also makes you a better intuitive eater and helps you develop a healthier relationship with food, which ultimately makes it easier to a lean, muscular physique without having to count and track everything that you eat.
