The Live Life Lean nutrition plan is focused on increasing our diet of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains. While decreasing our diet of unhealthy foods that are often processed, contain trace toxins, chemicals, refined sugars, and other ingredients that foster an unhealthy digestive tract and immune system. In short, we often feel tired, sick, overweight, and unhealthy due to our diet.
The Live Life Lean nutrition plan consists of eating ONLY fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains every other day, 3x per week. My wife, Claire, and I follow this eating plan on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Fruits consist of just fruit, whole fruits unprocessed, as opposed to fruit juices or “fruit” that contain preservatives, added sugars, “fortifiers” and the like. Vegetables may include the roots, such as potatoes, malanga, salsify, radish, beets, etc. Nuts may be lightly salted, but nothing like honeyed, or sugar glazed. Whole grains not milled grains, flours, or bread stripped of its vitamins and fiber. And with all of these eat fresh and uncooked as much as possible– frozen vegetables are okay. Exceptions to the above are the gbg vitamin supplement, spices, herbs, tea, and regular coffee without adding creamers, sugars, and the like.
Our “Eat as You Like” days are on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and the weekends. You get to eat your meats, dairies, breads, condiments, etcetera on these days! We include healthy portions of vegetables, fruit, nuts, and grains while allowing ourselves to eat the “forbidden foods” in moderation, and often reluctantly. This is because our bodies are very, very happy on Live Life Lean days. Our energy is boosted, we feel lively, light, and healthy; and, we find ourselves fighting off sickness more easily.
HALF DAYS: Some Live, Life Lean days may be tough to get through due to illness or other physical conditions. Or you may find you are losing too much weight. Instead of losing the full benefit of Live Life Lean days, make it a half day. Live Lean Lean for breakfast and lunch, and then eat as you like for dinner!

(hold “ctrl” key & press the “+” on your keyboard to enlarge font size)
|Breakfast- whole fruits such as oranges, bananas, and apples. 1/4 cup serving of Muesli, which is a mixture of whole grains, nuts, and dried fruits. Muesli is readily available in most health food stores or shop iHerb online. GBG vitamin and mineral supplement.
||Lunch- A salad sans the dressing and croutons. Or just a peeled carrot and another vegetable, such as a slice of green pepper. 1/4 cup serving of Muesli with or without additional nuts. I recommend 3 servings of Muesli mix per day. GBG vitamin supplement at either lunch or dinner.
||Dinner- We usuallycook a package of frozen vegetables adding a crushed clove of garlic, a slice of onion/ chopped, salt, pepper, a couple of potatoes diced into cubes, and 2 tbs of olive oil. On other nights, we make delicious split pea or vegetable soups with zucchini and squash.
** The Live Life Lean nutrition plan is my personal recommendation and works perfectly for my wife and I. It may or may not work for you. If you have reservations about this eating plan, please consult your doctor or other qualified health care professional for advice.
