    As the title suggests that's what I aim for clean and lean .

    Starting today at 43 and 10.2 I aim to be a healthy 9.3

    Intending to eat as clean as possible and also keep an eye on the calories - as those healthy nuts contain lots of calories .

    Intending a meat free day today and as I just purchased a Nutribullet intend to make smoothies a lot .

    My job is shift work 6-2 . So lunch is at 9am and I can't stomach a salad then so will take a smoothie .

    Day 1
    Breakfast/lunch - smoothie 1/4 pineapple 1/2 apple blueberries spinach 1/2 avocado ginger lime and sunflower seeds 325 cals

    I'll edit layer

    Well back again after trying various plans - and been on holiday -

    Decided to read the 14 day turbo diet by jason vale and reading through the meals - similar to paleo - fruit veg fish chicken olive or coconut oil - no pasta or bread unless it's hemp and only sweet potatoes and no diary foods .

    As there wasn't any forum for juice and natural foods I'm guessing the paleo is as close as it gets .

    No more but or excuses - I'm ready .

    Breakfast 2 boiled eggs green tea
    Juice - pineapple orange apple grapes and strawberries .

    Lunch possible salad

    Dinner sea base with broccoli and green beans

    L started off 2 scotch eggs with mayo - then as they were soooo nice had 4
    D sea bass cooked in butter seasoning with a ratatouille of mushrooms red onion courgette and pepper in passata with chill


    But then - went to friends and had burger and salad ( would of been ok except I couldn't resist the burger bun )

    We'll been busy watching what I eat have lost so down to 9.8 so a 5lb loss - following paleo to an extent - but 4 days out of 6 ( due to work/time-ease ) have a sandwich for work - no replace beats for bread !

    We'll haven't been eating too healthy - but with a tough job I'm at 9.8 still -
    Problem is I love carbs , need to knuckle down and be healthy clean eating .
    Going shopping tomorrow as with just over 2 weeks to Christmas I'm sure if I work hard I can loose 4lb .

    Need breakfast ideas that I can take to work as too cold for smoothies

    Here to sub! I'm planning to restart clean eating in the new year (there's too much temptation around at the moment) and I could use all the inspiration I can get :)

    Well Christmas binging over and a small gain ...., 2lbs .
    So at 9st 10.2 need to loose 10lb to be happy - 12 lb to be really happy .

    Had an interesting chat to a slimming world consultant - he said ditch the carbs and proceeded foods inc slimming bars fry light ect . And eat pure foods ( red/original day ) meat veg olive oils ! Very intresting - sounding a lot like paleo to me .

    So I'm using juicing and paleo method - but I am also human so if needs be will have the odd sandwich . Doing a 5 day juice plan on 3 jan

    Also intend to start to exercise soon ( ditched the gym )

    So a clean lean and healthy new year

    Yes interesting that even slimming has done a full circle and promoting low carb - but also ( which I like ) he said the odd bowl of porridge and a sandwich would do no harm - didn't mention the wine though lol - after all I am human
