We have had such an over whelming response to our 12 week ‘LOVE LIVING LEAN’ program that we wanted to collate our top FAQs for you ladies below. If you have any further questions, send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
How much is your program?
SILVER is available as an upfront payment of $139.99 or as 3 month monthly subscription of $51.99/month.
GOLD is available as an off upfront payment of $169.99 or as 3 month monthly subscription of $61.99/month.
Is your 12 week program just Nutrition or fitness plans as well?
Both! As you will see from the above, you can choose to just do the nutrition plans only or you can choose both the nutrition and fitness plans too if you prefer. Obviously you will lose more weight (and build more muscle) if you are following both our nutrition and fitness plans together (as they are designed to compliment each other) but you will still target bodyfat and feel FAB with just our nutrition plan too. If you choose just the nutrition plan, we expect that you are active regularly for top results.
I love the sound of your program, can you tell me more about how it’s structured?
Once you sign up, you will receive a log in to access our private website and Facebook community where you will be able to download your new meal plan (+fitness plan if you choose) every week. On this platform, Ange and Leanne will also be uploading exclusive videos and blogs each week that talk you through a huge range of topics so you learn about health and nutrition too (not just blindly follow the plan).
The meal plans are very flexible and will give plenty of options! In fact, you will get 3 recipes for EVERY meal and multiple snack options every week. In general, we aim to give you one quick ‘on the go’ option, one hot option and one cooler option. At the end of the program you will have 120 whole food recipes to use for life!
I’m worried as I’m going on holidays at the start of your program whether I can still do it. Am I able start the program in week 3 when I get back?
This program is designed to show you how it is possible to still go on holidays, have great weekends and enjoy special events without restricting or obsessing about foods, without missing out and without losing all control and falling off the wagon. Our program was literally designed for women like you that are sick and tired of restricted “challenges” and “weight loss programs” without sustainable results which get you stuck in a ‘dieting’ mentality which is hard to break and never allows you the freedom to eat the foods you love. Our LOVE LIVING LEAN program was designed from a need to stop women from dieting and restricting and allow them to start fuelling their bodies with nourishing whole foods every day not just “after I get back from holidays”.
I’m sick of doing 6-8 week challenges and re-gaining the weight at the end. How is your program different?
This is EXACTLY the reason we developed the LOVE LIVING LEAN 12 week program as we saw SO MANY women doing these strict 6-8 week challenges where the calories were far too low (1000-1200 calories!) It literally broke our hearts. In our experience, if you aren’t new to dieting then we need a “metabolic reset” where we give your body an environment that offers more food to reset your current eating pattern and get you out of the dieting mentality. Other plans also take out any ‘bad’ foods and have a whole list of things you ‘can’t’ eat. Our signature program specifically encompasses freedom for you to enjoy your favourite foods (such as chocolate, alcohol or chips) so you never feel deprived or like you’re missing out. We want to create a SUSTAINABLE lifestyle so even when the 12 week program is over, you can maintain this way of eating using all the delicious recipes we’ve provided you and all the tips and tricks we’ve shown along the way to maintain your results FOREVER! This is not a diet – we are building a LIFESTYLE and that starts with learning to fuel your body, rather than restrict it.
Will there be enough variety in your meal plans? I am a fussy eater and don’t like eating the same thing every day?
Yes! There will be! We can 100% accommodate for things you LOVE and things you would rather skip! The meal plans are very prescriptive yet flexible to your personal preferences and will give you plenty of options every meal! You get 10 new recipes every week and if you don’t like certain ingredients, you will use our signature nutrition exchange lists to sub in other ingredients that you do love. We will coach you through how to do this in our program.
Can your program cater for vegetarians and vegans?
Yes definitely! We have a plant-based approach to our nutrition plans, so this means there will be loads of vegetarian and some vegan options. The program will have an interchangeable protein list so you just choose the plant-based proteins to sub into the recipes.
Is your program appropriate for pregnant women and/ or breastfeeding mums?
Definitely! It’s whole-food based and provides an abundance of nutrients – something we believe mums struggle with taking care of families first! There will however come a time when we start to reduce total energy in order to accommodate safe and sustainable fat-loss, but we will notify you at what part of the program this occurs and we will suggest that you modify the plans with our expert guidance.
For breastfeeding mums this will be completely fine unless your baby has a cow protein/soy intolerance then you will have to substitute for this under professional dietary guidance. It is virtually impossible to ascertain energy needs for a breastfeeding mum as your baby/sleep will dictate this! We will have options to upscale your nutrition if you feel you are hungrier than normal at certain times under our expert guidance.
I don’t have access to your gym as I can’t afford it, can I still do the fitness component at home or is it only gym based?
We recommend you join a gym to execute the program (even a cheaper 24hr gym), or a more studio-based training facility or Crossfit box that has more freedom and equipment than a specific program based gym (e.g. F45 or HIIT) to maximise your results. Although things like high intensity training or other forms of cardio are good for general exercise, the focus of the ‘LOVE LIVING LEAN’ program is to improve muscle and tone which requires a resistance based program and in our experience, people don’t have the various types of equipment needed at home.
Please note however that the fitness part of the program is not compulsory, we just recommend it for the best results in terms of ‘LOVE LIVING LEAN’. If you choose not to do it (as you are already doing your own exercise) that is totally ok as well and you will get the cheaper nutrition only price point where you will still see amazing results from the nutrition program only.
What type of exercise programming should I expect if I choose the nutrition and exercise option?
For maximal results (with longevity in mind) we believe 4 days per week of resistance training is optimal. The program will have specific exercises, sets and repetitions and structure which has been carefully designed for best results, progressions, regressions and safety. Each exercise will come with video tutorials via an app that you will download with a specific code for access to the programming (the app is free to download).
Each workout (including warm up and preparation) is broken down into 4 simple sections and will take approx 45 – 60 min to complete. Our typical workout structure looks like;
Preparation (5-10min) – Mobility and specific activation for the workout of the day.
Strength (10-15min) – The focus here is to make you structurally strong and increase muscle activation with sets ranging from 3 – 5 and reps ranging from 5 – 15.
Supplementary Strength (10mins) – During this section of the workout we are aiming to “iron out” any left to right or front to back muscle imbalances by using single leg/arm exercises that challenges stability in each side. Also there will be core and anti-rotational core (abs and obliques) movements in this section.
Conditioner/Finisher (10-15min) – The goal in the section is to get you nice and sweaty which will increase your heart rate and improve your fitness and conditioning. A general conditioner will be 3-5 exercises with target reps and rounds to achieve in a certain time period.On top of this, it is suggested you complete another 1-2 sessions of exercise per week in whatever mode you enjoy – this could be walking around your area, cycling with your kids or hiking a mountain if that’s what you enjoy! Expect to put aside 5 hours of training per week as this is what is required to achieve great health and a lean figure (note: this sounds like a lot but it’s really only 5 x 1 hour sessions a week which EVERY person should be doing for optimum health and wellness).
I need motivation and support. Does your program provide this?
Once you sign up, you’ll be able to access our private Facebook group + members support forum for daily support. There will be a community of women all working towards the same value – nourishing our bodies with an abundance of good food to thrive! You can ask us any types of questions within this group and we will get back to you with our expert responses. If we get the same questions we will film answers to them on live videos so you guys can tune in and learn at the same time. Our program is different as we are teaching you, not just showing you! The Facebook group + members forum will not only provide daily support from us, it will also provide support and motivation from your fellow participants every day!
