All about BBC Good Food's Clean & Lean Diet Plan

Natasha Corrett

A healthy diet should be balanced and followed all year round. This is a three-day, vegetarian diet plan that serves two people and is designed to kick-start your healthy habits and help you to see the benefits of healthy eating quickly. The plan was written by Natasha Corrett, founder of Honestly Healthy, and overseen and tested by BBC Good Food's cookery team and nutritionist, Kerry Torrens. As well as recipes, we will send you tips for continuining to eat well after the plan.
 

What to expect from these three days

What to expectNatasha says: ''A cleanse like this one gives your digestive system a well-earned rest, and helps your body to absorb the nutrients from food more efficiently while you are on the plan. Longer-term, this way of eating encourages weight loss, clearer skin, increased energy, better sleep, a stronger immune system, shiny hair and stronger nails.

This three-day plan is a gentle way to get back on a healthy track. The meals are low-calorie, but high in nutrition, so you shouldn’t need to add anything extra. However, if you feel energy levels flagging, you can have some of the snack suggestions that we'll send you with the plan''

How will you feel?

When will I get the plan

This plan is designed to give your new eating regime a kick-start – not to be followed long-term. As your body adjusts, you may get a few headaches, or feel irritable or fatigued, but this will pass. These side effects are a result of your body adjusting to fewer stimulants, like caffeine and sugar.
 

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or on medication, you should check with your doctor first before you do any diet plan.

Maybe you should have got some advice from the BDA before publishing this? The above disclaimer speaks volumes.

Actually pH 7.35 is almost neutral, rather than alkali. Our kidneys naturally maintain our body pH at 7.35-7.45 (where 7.45 is actually the more "alkali" end of the range) regardless of the food we eat unless we are critically ill. Check out your high school biology textbook for more info.

Living in the Netherlands I may not be able to get all the unusual ingredients. Are there any substitutions that you could suggest? Thanks

I had trouble signing up to these - but if you type newsletter into the search box it gives you the necessary options. (Sack the IT team?) Not really - but good luck to all.

What qualifications does Natasha hold to make such unfounded and sweeping statements regarding the efficacy of an "alkaline diet" especially as it is readily denounced as a fad diet with no scientific grounding by those with actual gravitas?

Hi there,Thanks for your question. The Clean & Lean plan is first and foremost a healthy, balanced three-day plan and was reviewed and analysed by our nutritionist. Natasha Corrett wrote the recipes and works closely with a nutritionist. She follows an alkaline way of eating and you can find out more about her here: http://honestlyhealthyfood.com/Many thanks,The Good Food team
