Product Description

Amazon Review

Elle 'The Body' Macpherson credits James and his 'Clean and Lean' diet for her amazing appearance at the age of 47 – “James is the only one I turn to when I want to get in shape fast!” (Elle Macpherson)

“James has made me thin and lightly muscled and frankly irresistible.” (Hugh Grant)

“In his new book, James lets you in on all his body-blitzing secrets, and breaks down his rules for getting a lean and healthy body…” (Grazia)

“Detox, don’t diet, if you want to lose weight – so says the man behind this summer’s hot slimming book” (Now)

“Elle Macpherson’s trainer James Duigan shares his secrets in ‘Clean & Lean Diet’. He’s devised the ultimate eight-minute workout that targets almost every part of the body and is actually quite simple, if a bit gruelling! And his 14-Day Kickstart aims to stop coffee and sugar cravings and get you feeling lighter in two weeks – just what my Sunday roast-thickened waist needs!” (Anne Magee, Sainsbury’s Magazine)

“If one thing will inspire you to buy James Duigan’s ‘Clean & Lean Diet’, it’s that he’s personal trainer to model Elle Macpherson. However, it’s his easy-to-follow advice, 14-day kick-start diet and eight-minute toning workouts that’ll keep you reading.” (Easy Living)

“James is personal trainer to stars such as Elle Macpherson and Hugh Grant. He explains why you need to cut the C.R.A.P fro your diet (that’s caffeine, refined sugar, alcohol and processed foods to you and me) as eating clean equals being lean.” (Healthy)

This book is incredible! James Duigan writes such a compelling argument for healthy eating that you can't help but feel motivated to eat well. The book is really nicely laid out in full colour and has some nice real life examples throughout which I found really great, I even found one example that almost fit me exactly and even had the same name as I did.

I am one week into his two week kick start program and I am feeling amazing!! The first day was a bit hard coming off sugar but after that it got easier and easier and now I hardly miss it at all. I have had so many comments already saying how my skin is looking amazing and I am glowing, one was from a complete stanger!

This book is definatly a must buy!

I wrote the above in June 2010 and it is now almost 4 months later and I have dropped two dress sizes from a 14 to a 10 and my immune system has really improved too, my whole family got colds this season I was fine! normally I'm the first one to get sick. I have recommended this book to all my friends!!

Format: Paperback
This book is the real deal. The plan and the principles behind it, if followed, can't fail to bring results. The book is incredibly user friendly and one of the only books on the market that segments itself into useful sections including the principles behind the plan, great recipes, food charts and quick, easy but effective exercise routines that only take 8 minutes (I can even squeeze them in before work). The Bad, Better and Best tables featured throughout the book, are a great quick reference point and allow you to adapt the plan to what suits you. I replaced the turkey and salad suggested breakfast with smoked salmon on rye bread, which keeps me full until lunch. I can't recommend this book highly enough. James' plan works. If you're looking to lose weight, tone up or just get healthy this book ticks all of the boxes and more. I followed an adapted version of James' 14 day plan and felt so good as a result that I have now adopted the principles behind the plan and have made them my everyday routine. I'm getting married in September and after following James' plan everyone has commented on the results and that's in less than a month. Don't waste your money on buying any other book ...buy this one, it really works!

Format: Paperback
I read this book six months ago and have been implementing the basic core of its message since then. The results have been excellent.
Last year on holiday I had a candid photograph taken in which my tummy was "relaxed". It was very depressing and as a near sixty year old male, I had promised myself that I would not slide into the archetypal pot-bellied grandfather. I didn't think I could do anything about it since I ate healthily (I thought) and exercised a bit.
Coincidentally, my wife brought this book home shortly after. What it said seemed balanced and sensible. What surprised me was that my healthy eating was maybe not so healthy after all.
I started to implement the basics of this book. Within a week, simply by cutting out certain parts of my diet and substituting with other things, I lost about 7 pounds.
I stuck to the spirit of the book rather than the letter which I think would be pretty difficult. Being encouraged by the early results, it wasn't too difficult to stick with it. The weight loss was more gradual over the coming weeks but every couple of days or so I would lose another pound or two. So I could see progress. I set myself weight targets but not with time objectives as I didn't want to "diet".
After 6 months, I have lost 2 stones (from 13 stone 7 to 11 stone 6) and am seeing a weight that I have not seen since my twenties. I feel excellent and a recent health check showed that all my main readings, cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure etc were very good indeed.
So what's the catch with this book? I would say few. You do need a bit of discipline but the early results give you an incentive to keep going.

Wanted a book that explained simple nutritional guidelines.

A great book. Its made a difference to many people I have recommended it to. They have enjoyed the clear guidelines and simple steps and noticed a real difference.

The main messages are cut out the sugar, eat protein, good fat and carbohydrate every time you eat - including snacks, if sugar is higher than the third ingredient on a packet don't eat it and if you don't know what the ingredients are don't eat it.

The exercises are simple and basic - its mainly a book about nutrition. Would have liked and enjoyed a vegetarian section.

Worth the investment.

This really is a great book, which looks good, is easy to read (I read it all in one go) and really helps you understand they why rather than just telling you to do it. It may be hard for some people to follow I found it very hard to begin with but totally worth it.

This is not a diet, this book has changed the way I eat, been using it since June and feel so much fitter, everything is allowed but it makes you think about what you are putting into your body. Long term plan, I have lost 11 lb and never felt a hunger pang, I dont want to eat any other way, the food is fresh and delicious and can be adopted to any budget.
