Is anyone doing this? I'm on day one and could do with a few Lean for Life buddies as have a holiday coming up in 12 weeks!!!

Yes! I am on Day 1 today too!

I LOVE her new book and it sits very well with how I now eat....

The last year has seen me remove pretty much all processed food and sugar, opting instead for a very clean, balanced (protein, carb, good fat) diet.

But my weight loss has stagnated and I feel her book is the missing piece of the puzzle:

Weight loss = calorie deficit. Eating clean can still be calorie dense, no matter how wholesome and raw.

Louise shows how to eat clean, eat balanced AND keep calories in deficit so ultimately your body becomes "lean".

So here goes - I will be your buddy 😀

Just to keep me motivated, here is what I have had today:

Breakfast: Oat bran mixed with 2%total yoghurt, heaped tsp almond butter & pomegranate seeds

Snack: peach & 6 Brazil nuts

Lunch: tomato, half small avocado, half a mozzarella (left-over otherwise would have had half fat), basil & balsamic vinegar.

Snack: few too many tastes of kids chilli con carne whilst making it!! A hard boiled egg & 10 sugar snaps

Dinner: 1/2 small chicken breast (left-over!), mushrooms, spinach & garlic in 1 tsp butter.

Have drunk two large jugs of water (infused with slices of orange today) - approx 3 litres.
Lots of herbal tea.

I haven't felt hungry, but I have felt a bit spaced out and exhausted. Hopefully I will be a bit more energised tomorrow!

Oh, and I meant to say my official weigh in today is 10st8 (at least 1 stone over where I want to be). I'm 5ft4.

Hi, I am keen to start this too. Read the book and will be ordering some of the staple ingredients form Tesco tonight with aim to start tomorrow. I need to lose 3 stone to be back to pre baby days... It's going to be tough but I am determined to make this permanent change!!

Hello! How is everyone getting on with this? I have been doing it for three weeks and I have lost around 10lbs. Struggling to fit all the exercise in though - need to tone now.

Hi everyone! I just started the method today and I'm just wondering: Has anyone tried out her vanilla oatbran recipe from "Lean for Life" and not gotten the result that was shown in the picture? If I add just two table spoons of oat bran to one and a half cups of milk, I don't get a nice and creamy oatbran. I get some sort of milk soup. Am I missing something?

Hi Mina2303, yes I had the same problem until I realised that my tablespoons were not big enough - try 40g oatbran to 250ml milk - that should work. We have a running thread here - come and join us!

Can anyone kindly share the daily menu as in what did you eat for breakfast, snacks , lunch and dinner in a week and achieved maximum weight loss? And dinner to have latest by what time?

Lastly I'm still confused as in when to have a breakfast? After the lemon water drink straight away or have lemon water first, then work out and then breakfast by 9:30 ish am ???????
Kindly share your experiences !

Hi everyone! smile I just bought the book and had a cursory read through yesterday. It all looks great BUT... I work a 5 day week and most of these meals are not something I can cook in batches or for the whole family. I can work around that but am a bit concerned over the near absence of carbohydrates in the lunch recipes. I can cut carbs at night, no problem, but if I don't have just a little bit at lunch it is guaranteed I will have a slump (with the shakes and the sweats) come 3 pm and then eat whatever I can find. Is anyone else having an issue with this? Also the breakfast portions will most definitely not keep me going more than an hour. I am a 2 bags of porridge and coconut milk person... I don't want to jeopardize results by eating larger portions but breakfast is non negotiable. How are you working around hunger pangs and/or portion issues? Thanks!

Same issue here! Exhausted after 4days in this diet. Constantly hungry and feel the lack of carbohydrates big times! 1/4 of watermelon, cucumber and 25 g of feta for lunch isn’t gong to last long. Not mention you got to exercise on that food and need fuel for that which I find I’m on very low on that. Can hardly do anything today.
Tried similar thing but it was a week on low fat then had similar thing going but with 4 eggs for breakfast and a protein shake as a morning snack, plenty of veg but some kind of protein ( fish, chicken, Quorn).
I will add more cheese, lentils, eggs to it and defo chos different snacks in between. I’m into healthy eating etc but this feels quite the opposite of the promised resoults. Hopefully I am keep going and see after a week if it improves. I’ll aldo recommend food doctor and Jeffrey life for similar sort of diet. On which I was never hungry and got gym 5 x a week. Good luck

Hi, I started the LP plan back in October and steadily lost 21 pounds, getting me back into the healthy weight range. But I also changed my lifestyle by getting active and reducing alcohol. I have been stuck at a plateau weight for weeks now, which is my problem : ( I have half a stone to lose to achieve my original goal, so today I'm going to try and get myself into the LP zone again!! I'll get the diet book out again and go back to hard core discipline :D I got lazy with following it and hence the plateauing. Good luck everyone and you have my full support x

I keep starting the lean phase and then I’m so hungry I give up. Does anyone else feel constantly hungry after ‘eating beautifully’, obviously you’ll loose weight as you are barely eating any calories of carbohydrates. Has anyone done the lean phase but not followed it religiously and still lost weight?
