Ultimately, the best way to lose weight is to cut calories, eat a variety of nutritious foods, and exercise regularly. Whole, clean foods tend to be lower in calories than junk food. Moreover, foods high in protein, fiber, and good fats, and low in added sugars, can support satiety, so you stay full longer and stave off unhealthy cravings. Many who reduce their sugar consumption find that they stop craving it, making it easier to stick with more healthy foods and lifestyle choices. The best way to manage your weight is to balance the calories you take in with the calories you burn through physical activities. Eating a variety of appropriate amounts of nutrient-dense foods, like fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains, as well as maintaining an active lifestyle, are the keys to success.
When you're eating clean, whole ingredients on a consistent basis, you're filling your body with the nutrients it needs to support your vital systems. Eating clean also keeps your body equipped for physical activity, which is key in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Absolutely! We make clean eating a no-brainer with basically no planning required on your end. Our recipes are a perfect way to experiment with healthy eating. No matter how committed you are to clean eating, we think you'll find our recipes delicious and easy to integrate into your weight management regimen.
The same nutritional rules apply for any meal. Focus on nutrient-dense, flavorful foods, including lean proteins, fresh vegetables & fruits, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and legumes. Use spices, herbs, citrus, and vinegar to amplify flavor, instead of adding sodium, sugar, and oils. Some breakfast ideas include vegetable frittatas, chia seed pudding, smoothies, and oatmeal with fruit and a sprinkling of nuts & seeds. For lunch, salads are an easy choice. Make sure they include protein for substance, like our Vietnamese Chicken Salad or Southwestern Chicken Salad. Grain bowls, like our Hawaiian Tuna Bowls with Brown Rice and Nori, are full of diverse flavors and textures. Or, if you spread your Lean & Clean recipes across three portions instead of two, you not only further reduce calories per serving, but get to enjoy for lunch the next day.

Following a Calorie-Conscious Plan

Not all calories are created equal, but paying attention to the number and type of calories in meals can support your health and fitness goals. That's why we launched our weight management meal plan, Lean & Clean, offering meals around 550 calories per serving and made with high-quality foods so you can be certain you're getting the most bang for your bite. A "diet" only works long-term if you can avoid feeling deprived. Lean & Clean recipes feature lean proteins and clean ingredients, high in protein and fiber with good fats, and no added sugar, to help you feel more satisfied and avoid unhealthy cravings. If you are eating delicious, satisfying meals, it won't feel like a chore, and you'll be better able to make healthy choices.

The Fuss About Fiber

While not a sexy topic, fiber is important, and a critical component to a healthy diet. Not only do foods full of fiber help you feel fuller longer, which is useful if you're trying to lose weight or manage your weight, studies are increasingly showing that these foods can promote healthy gut bacteria, known as the microbiome, which is essential to overall wellness.

All the Good Stuff

We pack our Lean & Clean meals full of clean, unprocessed ingredients. Our plan makes clean eating meal prep a breeze, with no grocery shopping required to cook organic produce, antibiotic- and hormone-free meats, and sustainably sourced seafood. Co-developed by industry-leading chefs and expert dietitians, our Lean & Clean Meal Plan really gives you the best of all worlds. It's delicious, real, flavorful food inspired by global cuisine with foods that are naturally delicious, clean, and nutritionally balanced.

Exercise Is a Key Part of Weight Loss

While reducing calories and eating a balanced diet are critical when trying to lose weight, regular exercise is also important. Sadly, you cannot outrun (or out-cycle or out-pilates) a bad diet. Some people thrive on a daily, mellow yoga practice. Others love running miles and miles on end. There is no "right way" to exercise, especially when it comes to weight loss. Only you can determine what works for you and fits your lifestyle.

Smart Snacks

When starting any weight loss journey and reducing calorie intake, it can be helpful to have a back pocket list of handy snacks that are low in calories and high in the good stuff like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. We recommend having some easy-to-grab, prepared snacks on hand in the fridge or pantry. Some of our favorites include baby carrots, jicama sticks, apple slices with nut butter, hard-boiled eggs, and nuts.
