How to Eat Clean + Lose Weight for Summer
Spring into Action with Vegus Juices!
Spring is well underway and the good news is that we’re already beginning to get glimpses of warmer weather. Spring brings that feel-good factor into everyone’s lives but also serves as a reminder of what’s ahead: Summer living, beaches, barbecues and a lot less clothing!
We’re sure we’re not the only ones who started to reach for our summer wardrobe and realise that our clothes don’t look quite as good on as last year. It’s quite normal to gain a few pounds in the cold winter months in an attempt to stay warm, but now the days are lighter and the temperatures are higher, that extra comfort weight is no longer needed!
Most of us in our busy lives have forgotten that we’re naturally seasonal creatures and our habits are strongly influenced by the time of year. So if you’ve gained a few pounds trying to keep warm or eating winter comfort foods, don’t feel bad, just know its completely natural. Gaining weight in winter is part of our body’s ancient survival mechanism that was useful when food supplies were scarcer. Just as we naturally tend to need more sleep in winter (when daylight hours are reduced), we also tend to eat a little more.
What to Focus on to Lose that Winter Weight
With summer just around the corner, many of us are thinking about how we’re going to look our best. Luckily, there are 2 areas of your life that you need to focus on to help reset your weight over the next few weeks.
There are four things you can do that will really make a difference which we’ll expand on later

How Does Eating Clean Help Me Lose Weight?
We’ve all been subjected to endless dieting messages but the one change that consistently works is to eat unprocessed, natural foods. The reason this works is because when we eat toxins, the body tends to retain fluid as a self-protective mechanism designed to stop the toxins from reaching vital organs. When we start eating clean the body no longer needs to protect itself from the toxins and can start to lose the excess fluid. Not only that, when we eat clean, our appetite normalises and we stop feeling so hungry and so naturally lose weight.
How Do I Eat Clean?
Start by Eating Unprocessed Foods
As a general guide, food that looks like where it came from is a good starting point. There are some additives like ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and organic vegan lactic acid that are naturally occurring and absolutely fine to eat. However, you definitely want to be avoiding foods with long chemical names such as mono sodium glutamate – basically try to avoid anything that doesn’t look like a food you know.
So along with eating natural, unprocessed foods, you can give your diet a big boost by making 5 other changes that help eliminate toxins, stabilise sugar levels and increase digestible protein. Read on down to discover more…
