CLEAN & LEAN
Q. Who can benefit from the clean & Lean eating plan?
A. Whether you are looking to reduce your sugar and processed food intake or are curious to try a plant-based/vegan diet based on healthy, whole foods, or simply want to start eating healthier - this clean eating plan is for you.
This plan is also suitable for those who are trying to reduce their cholesterol and triglyceride levels, or for those who are looking to shed some weight in a healthy and responsible way without feeling like you have to starve to achieve results!
Q. Do I have to give up coffee and tea?
A. No need to worry, there is no need to give up your daily pick-me-ups. It is possible to enjoy a cup or two a day and remain plant-based. We do however recommend to buy your coffee only from certified-organic brands to ensure there are no hidden pesticides slipping into your daily beverage. Of course, we also recommend swapping out any milk or cream for a plant-based variety.
Q. Does this plan have enough protein?
A. This meal plan will ensure you meet all daily nutritional requirements, including the protein.
If you are an athlete or are very active for other reasons and feel you might need some extra protein, we recommend consuming an extra serving of protein powder after your daily workouts.
Q. Will I lose weight by doing the clean & lean meal plan?
A. It is likely that you will lose between 0.5kg to 1.5kg per week. We recommend to sign up to the 21-day weight loss plan to achieve maximum results.
Q. What if I don't like a recipe ingredient?
A. No problem. You can swap the meal out with another meal, or, you could choose a more desirable (and suitable) ingredient from one of the other recipes.
Q. What if I am hungry?
A. If you are hungry, you can try consuming a glass of water between meals and snacks. You can also add psyllium husk fibre or chia seeds to enhance feelings of fullness. Recommended snacks that have very few calories but may help reduce hunger include: cucumbers, leafy green vegetables, celery, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, and mushrooms.
Q. Is this a keto-vegan diet?
A. No, it is not - some of the recipes include beans and other legumes as a source of protein.
Q. I am currently taking medications. Can I still do the clean & lean plan?
A. Although our clean & lean plan is very likely to have a positive effect on anyone's health, we do recommend speaking to your doctor before starting this plan should you have any pre-existing medical conditions. We cannot guarantee to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease with this clean eating plan.
Q. I am breastfeeding and/or pregnant, is this plan suitable for me?
A. Eating a clean and healthy diet is especially important for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and we highly recommend cleaning up your diet for the sake of your baby's health as well as your own. However, this specific clean & lean plan is designed for men and women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding. This signifies that the number of calories and nutrients in this plan will only be enough for the person consuming it, and if you are breastfeeding or pregnant, you will have to add more to make sure your baby gets enough calories and nutrients as well.
Q. What is intermittent fasting?
A. Intermittent fasting means that you consume your calories during a specific window of the day, and choose not to eat food for a larger window of time.
The most popular approach to intermittent fasting is 16/8, which requires fasting for 16 hours a day while eating all of your daily calories within a shortened period of 8 hours.
You can do this every day, or a few times a week.
Q. Can I skip the morning and afternoon snacks?
A. Yes, you can skip the snacks on the days you are doing the intermittent fasting.
