Thanks for the response! Inches, that's what I have to keep in mind. I'm getting ready to start the last week of the burn phase and can tell I am getting a lot stronger. I'll take my measurements next Sunday. Have you found that it all comes together and the results start to show during the lean phase?

I say stick with the clean eating. I just try to balance the macros with each meal and snack getting in good portions of protein/carbs/fats. If you're eating clean, it works well with this program. Make sure that you're eating enough calories, too. So many try to cut the calories on a weight lifting program and itjust doesn't work.
I don't lose weight on this program. I do lose inches, though. Have you tried measuring? How far are you in the program? I made it all the way through the Lean for Life phase and didn't lose a pound so I do understand the frustration but man am I stronger! I am going to do a month or two of Jari Love's DVD's then go back and do another month of Lean for Life and work back and forth between the heavy lifting/few reps and the light lifting many reps.
Good luck figuring it out! I think clean eating is the way to go, personally.
Okay, so I made the mistake of getting on the scale this morning. I know muscle weighs more than fat, so for me an increase was expected. ( still don't like it though) So I'm wondering if maybe I should try to stick to the meal plan. I'm a clean eater, but do eat more carbs than the Chalean meals. I also think I would be starving on that few calories.
