    What info are you looking for?

    Read ingredients. Avoid all preservatives and avoid prepackaged foods.

    Don't worry about sales gimmicks and "labels (such as "clean eating, and "organic" most of it is meaningless).

    Home cooked meals as much as possible.
    Single ingredient foods at the grocery store. (non-prepared- or pre-seasonsed- Vegetables, meats, fruits.)
    Yogurts should have two ingredients, dairy and live cultures.

    Try always to buy local produce. That means you only buy what is in season. The food is fresher, doesn't need preservatives, and tastes better. Also, you get to support you local economy.

    And don't forget that just because something is natural does not mean it is healthy, or healthier.

    And avoid sugar and artificial sweeteners. They are just bad for you.

    No into get into a debate about labels (what does "clean" actually mean) this list just sounds like a healthy low fat eating plan.

    BUT...I do disagree with two things on the list:
    Tea: There is nothing wrong with regular black tea, especially if you buy the loose tea and brew it yourself.

    Vitamins: Most are worthless for most people, and dangerous for some. Eat a balanced (whatever that means) diet and you will get the vitamins you need. You think you need omega 3's (fish oil)? Then eat fish. You think you need additional vitamins in your diet, eat additional vegetables. Most healthy young people do not have vitamin deficiencies. A doctor can test for that if you are worried about it. Additionally, your body was not meant to absorb vitamins in single concentrated doses. When you take vitamins and your urine is dark, those are all the vitamins your body could not absorb. Also, the vitamin and supplement industry in unregulated. You do not know what you are actually getting when you buy from most companies.

    I don't know how good or bad a list it is, I don't clean eat. But my friend does and this is what she suggests. I believe she has a meal plan and it requires those ingredients.

    As far as the multi vitamin, through my health and nutrition classes in college I recall that they are worthless for most people, you pee it all out. My professor said you never need anymore than what you'd get in a kids flinstone vitamin. I asked my doctor and she said the same thing. Never heard anything about them being harmful.

    The harm is that too much of a vitamin can be dangerous. Also, because you do not really know what you are getting in most of those pills, you are not controlling how much of what goes into you. Also, some people substitute vitamins for eating balanced diets.
