More About the Author

James Duigan is a globally respected health and wellbeing expert who has been transforming bodies and changing lives with incredible success around the world for over a decade.

Since founding Bodyism in 2006, James has trained some of the world's most famous bodies including Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Elle Macpherson. His attitude and expertise have placed him in high demand on both sides of the Atlantic, where his Clean & Lean philosophy has garnered press interest from the likes of Vogue, Women's Health, GQ and the Daily Mail.

James's interest in 'total wellbeing' was the driving force to share his knowledge beyond Bodyism's Personal Training clients. He created the Clean & Lean diet philosophy to give everybody a simple and achievable blueprint for a lean, strong and healthy body.

"Every person deserves to live a happy, fulfilled and purposeful life. Clean & Lean means you make mindful eating, exercise and lifestyle decisions for the long term. It moves away from emotionally unsustainable short term diets with a system that is effective, fun and great for our planet".

Clean & Lean encourages an organic, locally produced diet rich in lean protein, vegetables and healthy fats, cutting out toxic foods, summarised as CRAP (Caffeine, Refined sugar, Alcohol, Processed foods). "Toxic food stresses your body, encouraging it to cling to fat, feel tired and crave sugary pick-me-ups."

James' bestselling Clean & Lean diet book series now includes a brand new men's title, Clean & Lean Warrior. The Clean & Lean diet books have sold over 500,000 copies worldwide and have been translated into 6 languages. The books cover nutrition information, meal plans, exercise programmes, recipes and best practise advice on incorporating natural health supplements from the Clean & Lean Essential Range.

Based between London, Sydney and LA, James is married to the love of his life, Brazilian born model Christiane and is a proud new father to a beautiful baby girl.

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)

Format: Paperback
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!

Premise - the rating is 5 stars if you have only this edition (2013). 3 stars if you also have the previous one (2010).

I have been a fan of this system for years and I have purchased also the previous edition of this book (I also have the Flat Tummy Fast and the amazing Clean and Lean Recipes Book). Whilst the title makes reference to diet this is a lifestyle and not a counting calories exercise The system is based on the principle of cutting carbs, refined sugar, alcohol, processed food. The great thing about this system is that the author explains in detail the reason why these should be avoided and the (bad) effects their consumption has on your health.
There is a 14 days plan (different compared to the previous edition) to kick off with the system to get rid of toxins and new recipes. The section on exercises is the same as the previous edition, but with a different mix. If you are a fan of the Clean & Lean system this book is worth buying only if you want to try new recipes as I did not notice a great deal of difference compared to the previous edition. If you have never tried this system purchase this book (in this 2013 edition) and you will notice the difference just a few changes can make in your life and weight. This is not a fad like Tracy Anderson - actually exercising for 60 minuets everyday is bad for you!
I really like the style of the author, never patronising or arrogant. He is very supportive in his tone. And if this system works for Elle MacPherson and Hugh Grant also common mortals like us can get huge benefits with regards to our health!

* There are mistakes in the pages numbers relating to the exercises circuits. Also he mentions the 8 minutes workout that was present in the previous edition, but is not in this one (even if he mentions it).

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.
