As we usher in a new season, we often succumb to the temptation to de-clutter and purge more than just our homes and garages. Giving your diet a good spring cleaning—particularly after a winter filled with eating starchy, comfort foods in front of the TV—can really help you adopt a lighter, healthier mindset for the new season ahead. Plus, if you happened to pack on some extra winter weight, now is the time to shed those excess pounds around your tummy before bathing suit season.
Here are ten tips for spring cleaning your diet…
