There are an incredible amount of benefits to eating clean. A major benefit is your diet will be higher in micronutrients and lower in trans-fats, artificial sweeteners and preservatives alike.
While it is great to try and avoid preservatives, the problem is, many often take the concept of “clean eating” to the extreme by avoiding certain types of food and banning them from their diet completely. Needless to say, people often form poor relationships with food as a result.
When the cravings for the “forbidden” food do kick in, many people often find themselves overconsuming large quantities of that food they might not have consumed if it wasn’t first forbidden in the first place!
