Show notes

Clean eating is a way of eating that emerged in 2007 and peaked in popularity around 2014, trending alongside the paleo diet. It is often defined as “cutting out processed foods and opting for whole grains, lean meats, fruits, and vegetables.” Sounds healthy, right?

In this episode, Claire breaks down the “Clean Eating Diet” and discusses the potential downsides—in our bodies and relationships—that can emerge when pursuing this way of eating. While this pursuit can appear to be a balanced approach on the surface, this trend may not be as health-promoting as we tend to believe.
