The Lean: A Revolutionary (and Simple!) 30-Day Plan for Healthy, Lasting Weight Loss Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
If you’ve ever dieted, you’ve undoubtedly worked very hard to achieve results - only to experience the disappointment of having the pounds creep back on. But now wellness expert Kathy Freston lets listeners in on her secret: losing weight doesn’t have to be difficult, and it can last. With this book she shares the powerful concept of the Lean - a radically effective approach to positive change - with a practical 30-day plan to transform your health and jump-start weight loss in the most gentle, easy, and automatic way possible.
“Leaning in” is about setting an intention for what you want, regarding weight and health, and then nudging yourself ever so gently in that direction, even if getting there seems impossible. It’s about choosing to eat foods that are delicious, filling, and supportive of your goals.
Each day of the scientifically based, vegan-friendly Lean plan, Kathy shows how to make and commit to small diet and lifestyle changes that, over time, yield unexpectedly significant results - something as simple as swapping nondairy milk for cow’s milk, eating an apple a day, or having an afternoon power shake. These changes propel you almost effortlessly into healthier choices and work together to bolster your progress. There are only two rules:
1. All you need is the willingness to take just one step.
2. As you add the healthier foods to your diet, eat the new foods first.
By gradually adding in these nutrient-dense and fiber-rich foods, you’ll crowd out the problem foods, feel fuller longer, and simply stop having cravings. On Kathy’s Lean plan, readers can experience healthy, permanent weight loss of one to three pounds per week - plus increased energy, improved digestion, clearer skin, and renewed purpose. Complete with exercises, recipes, and powerful testimonials, The Lean offers not only a truly leaner body, but also the little push we all need to get on the path to lasting change.

negatives- I think from reading a part (before I began to lose the will to live) that most of this book it is aimed at fat american coach potatoes and tone is quite condescending and preaches in places. Begins with really stupid thing most health are people do like drink more water, what annoys me the most is she makes sweeping statements which she doesn't always give balanced evidence for if you know nothing about veganism and want to find a way in it may help but if you do its not the book for you.
I thought I knew mostly everything to do with animal fats and what I eat. I was wrong! I would say most of use don't know what we're eating day in and day out. This book is amazing and opened my eyes fully. I have changed the way I eat and now a vegan after reading this wonderful book and feel so much better in myself by doing so!
Thank you, Kathy, for sharing all the information and the beautiful recipes in the back of the book!
I love this. Makes the whole book so much more manageable and easy to follow.
I highly recommend this book.
