Can you give me a summary of the Lindora Lean for Life® program?

Lindora’s Lean for Life® program is a personalized weight management system that delivers rapid, safe results. The program has been perfected for more than 30 years and ten million clinical visits at the renowned Lindora Medical Clinics in Southern California. This proven, results-oriented program has helped people throughout the world improve their health – and their lives – by achieving their weight loss goals in the Lindora clinics, through the innovative Lean for Life® Online program, and with expert telephone nurse coaching services.

Lean for Life® is a comprehensive program that addresses the physical as well as the mental and lifestyle issues of weight control. The program includes a Weight Loss Phase that is followed by a Lifetime Maintenance Phase.

When followed correctly, the Lean for Life® program helps participants achieve a rapid, safe, healthy and comfortable weight-loss result. Although the exact rate of weight loss varies among individuals, the average weight loss for participants who follow the program correctly and are reasonably active is approximately two to three pounds per week. Other benefits of the Lean for Life® program include decreased hunger and cravings, improved mood, increased energy, and protection of lean muscle mass.

The program is presented in a day-by-day format that participants find easy and convenient to follow. The menu plan is initially low calorie, low carbohydrate, low fat and moderate protein during the Weight Loss phase and then transitions into a more traditional balance of moderate carbohydrate and low fat foods during the Lifetime Maintenance phase. Participants learn to eat a wide variety of foods while maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle.

During the Weight Loss portion of the program, participants enjoy three meals and three snacks a day using foods that may be purchased at any grocery store or found in restaurants. The menu plan includes a selection of lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, and grains. The ratio of carbs-protein-fat is approximately 30-50-20. (Approximately 50 – 100 grams of carbs, 60 – 90 grams of protein, and 10 – 15 grams of fat.) The Lifetime Maintenance Phase menu plan increases calories and is individualized based on weight and activity, with approximately 45% calories from carbs, 25% from protein, and 30% or less from fat.

Lean for Life® also offers a variety of delicious and convenient protein nutritional products such as bars, shakes, soup, and hot and cold drinks that may be used during the program, but are not mandatory. (They’re great for between-meal snacks!)
