I agree that Lean Line offered a simple diet plan. I lost weight in a healthy way and actually was an instructor for a short time. After Lean Line folded and many years later, emoticon I regained the weight due to my emotional eating pattern and lack of portion control. I attended Weight Watchers and did very well on losing the weight. As a life member, I continued to attend. But what happened was that WW made their program more time consuming year after year. It was much more complicated than necessary and not something I could follow in my busy life. I'm finding the Nutrition Tracker on Sparkpeople to be a simple yet very effective way to monitor and control my calories while eating in a healthy manner.

Do you know how they categorized beans (white, black and red) as well as chick peas. I loved lean line and lost a good amount of weight but at that time beans were on even on my radar so i don't remember. Aprpeciate any help you can offer.

I still have (cause I'm a pack rat) my original plan from 1972. I joined in Union City. I also have the book "Cybernetics for Lean Lines." I miss their ice cream. Unfortunately, they didn't get to the status that WW has, but I loved them.

I did get the book but by then I was on Jenny Craig to straighten out some health issues. Your post reminded me to get that book out lol. Keep posting and maybe we all can do this together Jenny got too expensive!

Hi...today is April 16, 2013 and I just joined...anyway, I HAVE the Lean Line book! The problem is, I've made the cheesecake in it but it doesn't taste like the one that they had at the store...have you managed to find anything out about it? I just loved that cheesecake, used to have it for lunch every day with strawberries....was totally satisfying. Let me know if you want any of the other recipes in the book!

Lean Line was the easiest and best program ever!! I lost 130 lbs on Lean Line when I was in my late teens, early twenties and kept it off for years! I think I'm going to go back to that way of eating, because I still remember it, I think. It was easy to follow - each day have 2 milks, 2 breads, 2 fruits, 3 vegetables, 3 oils, protein was 1oz, breakfast, 2oz lunch, 3 oz dinner. Potatoes, peas no more than 4x weekly. Easy peasy!! If I got anything wrong that you can recall, let me know!

I LOVED leanline..we were talking about it at work. I was never able to eat so much and lose 35 pounds in 9 months. I only have the weigh in part of my book and would love to fine the rest of it. Even went on ebay! Is the book that is listed in another post based on the lean line diet plan? If so I will definately get it.
My leader was MaryEllen in Bound Brook Presb. Church. She was a real motivator.

I was a lifetime member of lean line. I still have some good habits left over from lean line. I learned to water down my orange juice so I could make a small serving of orange juice last a long time. I remember that people in my area were going to either WW or Lean line. My friends were going to lean line. I thought the programs were similar from what I knew.

I went before I had any children. My goal weight was 122. It was definitely on the low side for my height. Now the maximum weight for me according to WW is 150.

Calorie goal 1300
Aiming to be healthy in weight, exercise and life balance as soon as I can.

Yes, those were the names! Lottie must have been a nickname. I actually met one of them because I went out with her nephew, many years ago...

Yes, I do remember the Lottie type of name. Also I know it was printed shortly after I graduated High School which was 1970.

JoAnn, I think everything we bought from the Lean Line store was yummy!! All the ice creams, the veal sausage was grrreat!! The cheese cake was excellent too!! It was less expensive that the WW products back the too.

Can't wait to get their book from Amazon. I really miss that diet because it was so simple & easy.

How about Antonia S. & Lorraine Fay Wurtzel Marotta?

Remember their ice cream pops in all flavors and the veal sausage? WW made it and they didn't and I think that is so sad. I also remember the cruise week when you hit 20 pounds.

Hugs, JoAnn

Lean Line was my favorite and most successful diet of all my years. I wish I could find the information in all my stuff around the house.

I just bought a book on Amazon which was written back then call "Lean Line Diet Cybergenics", not sure if I'm spelling it correctly, but I remember having it decades ago.

We used to frequent the Lean Line store which was located in South Plainfield, NJ. Sometimes I wonder if Weight Watchers both them out.

I do remember them from many years ago. There were two women who started it, and they lived in the Plainfield or Piscataway area. I had a paperback book that they wrote years ago, and I'll see if I can find it and get their names.

A few of us have been searching for anything on Lean Line, they were out of Plainfield and had stores and meeting all over much like Weight Watchers. I did very well on their diet plan and am hopeful that someone saved it along the way since they are no longer around.

Hugs, JoAnn
