Clean and Lean diet: This diet is a flexible 14-day meal plan, which aims to rid your body of fattening toxins and give you the figure you’ve been dreaming about. Created by Elle Macpherson’s personal trainer, James Duigan, Clean and Lean combines healthy eating with maximum impact exercises.
PROS: Health is at the centre of this diet, so you don’t need to compromise your well being for the sake of losing a few pounds. It teaches you about food, which could help you make better choices once the diet it over. The Clean and Lean cookbook is great and unlike some quick fix diets this one comes with a maintenance plan to help you keep the pounds off.
CONS: This diet wants you to give up alcohol – which is easy for some, but not so easy for others. Our culture makes it very difficult to completely avoid refined sugar and processed foods, so more thinking will be required when you’re dining out or doing the supermarket shop.
