Q&A with the Queen Clean & Lean, Wendy Riddell
If she’s not boot camping her way around Asia with UFIT clients, she’s helping Singapore residents lose those extra pounds during the famous UFIT Clean & Lean Challenges.
So how better to celebrate the launch of our new Clean & Lean Challenge partnership and exclusive Meat and Seafood Boxes than to ask UFIT lead Nutritionist Wendy Riddell how a clean lifestyle can help you shortcut to a new you!
What’s the Clean & Lean Challenge?
Much more than a physical fitness programme to achieve your desired body goals, it’s also a major milestone towards a changed lifestyle.
Participants enhance the detoxing processes in their bodies and we help educate you about better ways of eating, making better food choices and, of course, it will help you become leaner and bursting with energy!
You certainly follow our own philosophy when it comes to clean food!
Absolutely! Our most important guiding principles are to base our food intake on fresh products, as close as possible to other natural state, from good sources of proteins, good fats, limited carbohydrates and NO refined sugar whatsoever.
What aspect and results do participants usually enjoy most?
Aside from a little bit of sweat and toil of course, and the short term symptoms of sugar withdrawal and detoxing, all our participants report an amazing boost in energy and things like healthier skin.
Sugar and insulin levels are more balanced as participants avoid the drastic blood sugar level changes caused by excessive consumption of carbohydrates, which in turn are responsible for our food cravings, drops in energy and mood swings.
Although reducing carbohydrate intake can of course mean feeling a little more tired, hungry and grumpy, after just a few days the body uses fat storage to create energy and all the symptoms will have disappeared!
So what else can those taking the Challenge look forward to?
Your hunger level will be reduced and you will have less and less cravings - You will control your food intake and the food will not control you!
You will have much more energy throughout the day - Stabilised energy all day long, without massive energy drops and need for stimulants.
You will also have more energy during your training sessions - Once your body is trained to create energy from fat storage, it can do it faster and more efficiently, prolonging long term energy throughout your training sessions.
More emotionally balanced
You will feel more balanced emotionally - Mood swings are often affected by our sugar ups and downs. At the beginning of the process, the limited carbs might create low serotonin, which is the neurotransmitter responsible for our happiness. However, when your body gets used to lower sugar consumption you will experience much more balanced emotional state.
Greater weight loss and body fat reduction
At the beginning of the process your weight loss will be mainly due to loss of fluids, as carbs are attracting fluids. After few days you will experience real weight loss and mostly from fat storage.
You will also lose body fat and become leaner as the body will burn fat to create energy once insulin levels drop. We aim to lose body fat as opposed to losing body mass.
Clearer, healthier skin and body
You will notice that your skin is clearer and your eyes brighter and whiter. You will also experience improvement in your blood lipids and blood pressure - lower triglycerides, higher HDL cholesterol for example.
Learn more about the food you eat
The clean diet will help you eliminate foods that are suspected to cause indigestion, gassy stomach, heartburn or any other problems. It’s the perfect way to learn which foods suits you the best and your route to kicking insomnia into touch through better gut health, as Sasha’s Fine Foods founder Sasha Conlan recounts in this blog
