Lean Body Supplement and Food Guidelines
Maximum timeframe allowed on Phase 1 (Low Calorie Diet):
You may stay on the Lean Body Weight Loss Solution for UP TO 60 days or 40 pounds lost before moving to the Maintenance phase.
Minimum timeframe allowed on Phase 1 (Low Calorie Diet):
Although there is no exact minimum number recommended to be on our diet supplements, science tell us that it takes 21 days for change to happen, both physically and mentally. Forming new eating habits and being aware of your nutrition needs would significantly benefit from 21 days of the supplement and diet meal plan.
How to do the Lean Body Weight Loss Program
Dosage: Take one to two supplements twice a day. Each dose should be taken 30 to 60 minutes before a meal, such as lunch and dinner, your two largest meals of the day. We suggest drinking a full 500 ml bottle of water with each of your two daily dosings. It'll help you flush out fat and toxins.
Additional Dosage: If or when you exercise, you may take an additional dose, with a serving of protein, such as a protein shake, 30 minutes prior to your workout.
Possible Detox side effects: Typically, there is a two-week detox period when taking any weight loss supplement. For the first 1-2 weeks you may feel sluggish, possibly a bit nauseated, and headachy. Your weight loss may be delayed while your body is in detox, ridding itself of toxins stored in your fat cells. This is a necessary process!
Don’t be discouraged! After the second week you will feel invigorated and your
weight loss will speed up significantly.

PHASE 2: Maintenance 1 (M1)
Do not attempt this phase of the diet without first reading our Maintenance Guide
This phase lasts 3 weeks and is critical to your success. This is when your body will adjust to its new metabolism rate, which will allow you to maintain your new low weight long term. Follow our detailed LBC Maintenance Guide to chose your foods and food portions.
Do not take Lean Body Canada Diet Supplements during M1: weight yourself daily: and eat from the M1 food list in your kit. To maintain your weight loss your body requires the number of daily calories equal to your BMR + activity level, including 100 to 150 grams of protein. Your BMR has changed since your weight loss so make sure you recalculate.
The most common cause of weight gain in M1 is not eating enough. Don't make the mistake of eating less to lose more weight in M1. Your goal is to stabilize at this new weight.
PHASE 3: Maintenance 2 & Life (M2)
Once your new weight is stabilized for three weeks (M1) and it has been a week since your last Correction Day, you will start M2, which lasts three weeks and is critical to your long-term weight loss.
During M2 you will slowly introduce starches and sugars (higher carb foods) into your diet. You will weight yourself daily and do a Correction Day (a Correction Day is explained in your diet guide) if your weight goes more than two pounds over your LDW (last day you were on the diet weight or Last Day Weight).
Start by incorporating one carb food per day for one week, such as brown rice, peanut butter, whole grain bread, melon, oatmeal, peas or beans.
We highly recommend eating the "Whole Foods Diet" way. For details on Whole Foods click here: EATING THE WHOLE FOODS WAY or refer to our "Diet Documents" section.
The second week of M2 eat two to three carb foods per day (not at the same meal though) such as popcorn, trail mix, cashews, sugar-free ice cream, or lentils.
On week three ease into having two carb foods at the same meal, with up to four carb foods per day. Make sure to always combine them with protein. Try things like juices, corn or yogurt. After M2 you can start a new round of the diet or continue to eat daily calories equal to your BMI + activity level to maintain your weight loss long term.
