Lean in 15 recipes are packed full of high protein ingredients, plenty of healthy fats and lots of carbohydrates to make sure you never feel hungry, even when you're trying to lose weight.
Developed by former personal trainer Joe Wicks the Lean in 15 recipe ethos is simple – fill up on food that's good for you and do a few burst of high intensity exercise each week and you'll soon see the difference.
In his relative short career (2 years or so) Joe has managed to gather together a following of 1.3 million followers on Instagram, so we think it's safe to say his approach is popular. With thousands of people being attesting to their weight loss having used Joe's recipes these could just be the perfect start to that diet you're always promising yourself you'll start.
They're comforting, family favourites and in Joe's own words, there's not a salad in sight. Think sweet and sour pork and delicious fish skewers.
What can I eat if I follow the Lean in 15 recipes?
Joe advises on a well balanced diet, and tries to encourage people to ditch the calorie counting. His recipes are all about concentrating on plenty of fresh fruit and veggies, lots of good fats that come from ingredients like avocados and coconut oil and minimizing sugar.
In his recipe book he breaks down the sections into food for 'training days', food for 'rest days' and snacks. On training days, when you're exercising he suggests eating three carbohydrate-rich meals and two snacks while on rest days he advises you to eat three reduced-carbohydrate meals and two snacks.
Joe, who is also known as The Body Coach, says his approach is 'a simple way of eating' where, 'you'll never go hungry'. He adds that, 'you're just giving your body the right energy source at the right time'.
