8 WEEK CLEAN EATING CHALLENGE
Our 8 Week Clean Eating Challenge will transition you to
a clean eating lifestyle that’s completely doable.
What is Clean Eating?
Clean eating is a diet based on anti-inflammatory foods in their most natural and nutrient-rich state. This means choosing whole foods that are unadulterated… just the way nature intended. Most importantly, a clean eating diet should also be low stress.
Individuals with gut discomfort, unexplained weight gain, hormone imbalances, difficultly retaining vitamin or nutrient levels are perfect candidates for this challenge. In addition, those individuals experiencing a lot of inflammation due to autoimmune disease, arthritis or other inflammatory responses will also benefit.

8 WEEK CHALLENGE CREATORS
The 8 Week Clean Eating Challenge was developed by Ivy Larson and Andy Larson, MD based on the Clean Cuisine 8 Week Anti-Inflammatory Nutrition Program published in 2013. Since then, thousands of people have taken the challenge to drastically improved their health and lives. In 2020, Madison and Aimee re-designed the Clean Eating Challenge using the original tried and true methods to teach clean eating in healthy, low stress way.
Madison Suttles | Creator
“Within just a month of switching to a clean diet, I felt better than I had in my entire life. Clean eating has enabled me to live the last 3 years in remission from my IBD and has given me back my freedom and life. I am so glad I made the transition.”
Aimee Harris Niedosik | Creator
“Within 3 days of adopting a 100% anti-inflammatory diet, my entire life changed. Within a few months, all of my Autoimmune symptoms I had suffered with for 10 years went away and my gut finally got in balance. I am a happier, healthier version of my old self.”
8 Week Challenge FAQ
What is Clean Cuisine?
Clean Cuisine is an anti-inflammatory program that focuses on eating “whole” foods in their most natural and nutrient-rich state. Our nutrition program places a heavy emphasis on plant-based nutrition and is particularly rich in anti-aging and disease-fighting phytonutrients and antioxidants. Overall, it is a comprehensive physician-designed lifestyle solution developed to combat the two factors that contribute to disease and obesity: malnutrition and inflammation.
Who Will Benefit from taking the Clean Cuisine Challenge?
Anyone who is looking for a permanent lifestyle solution that will improve their health, energy and appearance should sign up for the Clean Cuisine 8-Week Challenge.
The Challenge will dramatically reduce systemic inflammation and is perfect for anyone with an active inflammatory condition (MS, asthma, arthritis, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, etc.)
And, although the Challenge was not specifically created as a weight loss program, the number one “side benefit” of reducing inflammation is hunger-free weight loss.
Can the Entire Family do the Clean Cuisine Challenge Together?
Absolutely! Clean Cuisine is a safe and healthy program the entire family, including kids, can follow together.
How is Clean Cuisine Different from Other Diets?
Clean Cuisine is not a “diet” but rather a lifestyle program and a way of living. You will not be required to weigh or “count your food” in the form of calories, carbs, fat grams, points, etc. Instead, Clean Cuisine shifts the focus towards making your food count nutritionally. You learn to eat in an intuitive way that fuels your body with the nutrients it needs and craves. But you also learn a completely new way of eating that places heavy emphasis on flavor-forward cuisine.
15+ years of Modern Nutrition Science
If you were to walk into our house you would find as many medical journals as you would gourmet cookbooks and magazines. On our bedsides we have copies of the Journal of the American Medical Association right alongside Food & Wine magazine. We have worked for over fifteen years to blend the best of modern nutrition science with the best of the food world and we don’t just want to extend our lives…we want to enjoy our lives too!
Is Clean Cuisine 100% organic?
No. Not because eating 100% organic wouldn’t be utopia, but it’s just not realistic.
Instead, we strongly encourage people to know as much about their food as they possibly can. Where did it come from? How is it packaged? How is it grown?
Choosing Healthy Meats
If you eat beef you want to know exactly what the cow ate and the conditions in which the cow was raised. For canned beans you want to know whether they are packaged in a can that contains BPA. If you eat salmon you want to know what waters the salmon swam in and what food the salmon ate. All of these things matter. Once you learn where your food comes from you’ll be able to make educated decisions on what you eat and when it is important to go the extra organic mile.
Selecting Lower Foods on the Food Chain
Also, it is important in general to know that because animal foods are highest on the food chain they will contain more toxins than what are found in plant foods. The higher up on the food chain you go the more environmental toxins accumulate. It is absolutely worth the extra money to spend organic on any animal foods you eat. But, since Clean Cuisine is a reduced animal-food way of eating doing this is not as costly as you might think.
And of course we always encourage people to be aware of the Environmental Working Group’s “clean fifteen” and “dirty dozen” produce.
Is Clean Cuisine Vegan?
Clean Cuisine is not a vegan program but it can very easily be modified to be so for individuals who do not eat animal foods.
How is Clean Cuisine book different than your typical clean eating / whole foods diet?
We shift the focus away from deprivation and introduce a whole new world of cuisine that combines flavor with superior nutrition. It’s a totally different mindset. Instead of saying, “Oh, I can only eat XX amount of carbs or XX number of fat grams,” we want people to say to themselves, “How can I get more fruits and vegetables into my diet? How can I make sure I am getting enough omega-3 fats? Did I eat enough phytonutrients and antioxidants today?” There is no shortage of food on Clean Cuisine!
Don’t Count Your Food
Instead of encouraging people to “count their food” in the form of calories, carbs, fat grams, etc., we want people to learn how to make their food choices count nutritionally. And then we show them how to make their food taste amazing. Tasty food is a very important component of Clean Cuisine!
If you don’t focus on calories, carbs and fat grams, then what is the primarily focus?
We focus on nutrients! The best way to get the most nutrition is to eat predominantly plant-based foods in their most natural and unrefined “whole” state.
Choosing Whole Foods
This means we want you to go for corn instead of corn flakes or steel cut oats instead of a granola bar that is “made with oats”. We’d rather you eat apples—with their skins on!!—instead of store-bought applesauce. We’d rather you eat “whole” orange juice made with peeled whole oranges rather than commercial pasteurized orange juice. We’d even prefer you eat “whole” olives or “whole” flaxseeds over olive oil or flax oil. The “whole” food is always, always going to have more nutrients per calorie.
