The Leanness Lifestyle

A custom exercise and eating plan to help you live a healthy lifestyle.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Leanness Lifestyle is a book and an online diet and exercise program that was created by David Greenwalt, a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). Through his book and website, Greenwalt becomes your personal diet and transformation coach who you can actually call on the telephone, depending upon which program you choose, as he personally tracks your progress and keeps you motivated throughout your weight-loss journey.

Whether you are looking to lose 10 pounds, 50 pounds or get the body you have always dreamed of getting, the Leanness Lifestyle program promises to make your health dreams a reality.

  • Offers personalized coaching and motivation
  • Offers a variety of programs to follow
  • Includes a custom-tailored weight loss plan
  • Does not include any special diet foods, supplements or high tech exercise equipment
  • Promotes a healthy lifestyle that includes proper nutrition and consistent exercise
  • Online diet programs praised for their success rates
  • Vegetarian- and vegan-friendly
  • Online focus of the program may dissuade potential program members

The Leanness Lifestyle program features a customized eating plan that supports your weight loss goals. You will learn how many calories you need to eat and how much you need to exercise in order to lose weight. The eating plan can be customized to meet your dietary needs and preferences whether you have food allergies or are vegan.

In the book, no stone is left unturned as the subjects of nutrition, exercise, food addiction, eating on the road or at parties and holidays, increasing focus and motivation, eating more while exercising less, why you should never give up your favorite foods, how to eliminate false starts once and for all and much much more are discussed.


Since the Leanness Lifestyle program is a lifestyle program, exercise is an important component to the success of the plan. You will be expected to exercise on most days of the week, even though you don’t need a gym membership or have access to special exercise equipment to fulfill this portion of the program. You will create a custom-tailored exercise plan with Greenwalt upon signing up for the Leanness Lifestyle program.


The Leanness Lifestyle program is a personalized weight loss program that gives you the tools and skills you need to develop a long-term healthy lifestyle. Through Greenwalt's book or his online program, he incorporates a personalized touch in all of his weight loss plans and extends his message beyond just the topic of what you can and can't eat.

Strange that no one was "asked" to publish positive comments for Leanness Lifestyle and now all of a sudden there are 14 new comments all at one time.
Makes one think, doesn't it??

There are enough negative reviews on this site to cause a potential client/customer concern. I am a former LLU Boot Camp member and would like to offer my thoughts on my experience. Yes, this is a business and shouldn't customers have the right to express their concerns about their treatment by the business owner? Of course, they should. Rather than avoid negative reviews, use them to improve your products, services, or business processes. If a customer is legitimately reporting a problem, the smart business owner should want to fix that problem, not brush it under the rug and pretend it doesn’t exist (or worse yet, call the people who lodge the complaints liars). We are talking about people spending a great deal of money for this program and they should know of these issues before signing up. This is a small outfit, not a national corporation, therefore it should be fairly easy to make adjustments to the issues being raised. I'm guessing that this won't happen due to Mr. Greenwalt's attitude of superiority and rigidness. A wiser approach would be to learn from these negative reviews, turn them into a positive opportunity to improve your business.

Some specifics takeaways: statistics like 90% success rate are all in how you view them and report them. I experienced plenty of repeat Boot Campers in my group because they had put their weight back on. If you think about it, it's sort of like built in repeat's like many other diets where people have success and then gain the weight back again. So, this is not a magic solution. Some are able to keep their weight off - but this is true with most diets - there will be a small percentage that can keep the weight off, but the bulk will gain weight again.

When I joined I just sincerely wanted help losing weight. I didn't care about prize money, I didn't care about the format of the letters/emails I received or eating a lot of chicken and veggies. I just wanted to make progress in an area that I have struggled with in my life. But, and this is the main reason for my comment - I felt and still do feel that I should be treated with respect and consideration at the same time. I performed all tasks required, did all homework and treated everyone I interacted with respectfully and politely - I feel that I should have been given the same type of treatment from the coach. People are afraid to speak up and say anything to this man because of the treatment they will receive. Plus, you've made an investment and can't get your money back so folks try to stick it out. When it reached the point that I dreaded waking up each day and having to deal with this one person who ran his organization like a dictator, I decided I'd had enough.

As for the fines, they were mentioned at the beginning of Boot Camp as possible $25. - $50. Never, ever did anyone mention fines of $500. being used as a "motivation" for my completing a video of me working out. I make it a practice not to share personal videos with anyone when I have no guarantee how those videos will be used in the future.

I am disappointed that this was not the right place for me and I continue working at my own weight loss journey on my own. I can't sit back and let others potentially experience what I did with out sharing my own reality with LLU. If you have enjoyed the program - great, I am happy for you. But, that does not negate my experience. Thank you.

Let me start by saying that, if it was not for LLU I would have not lost 50 LBS. I chose to call David Greenwalt, Coach, because he deserves it, he has earned it ! He never asked us, demanded us to do so. We do not do DIETS with this program, we change our lifestyles, we learn why we eat the way we do, we learn about accountability of everything we put into our mouths, we rediscover how good natural foods are. We exercise, we meditate, we are motivated by our coaches and other LLU Members. We have FUN!
He did not ask me in any way or form to post on this site. I also have not met him personally, but I have many close friends that are his friends and they trust and believe in This Man, and this February I lay my trust in him, and today I am 50lbs lighter, from size 48 pants, I am now down to size 36. I am not done with my journey I will continue to believe and practice the Leanness Lifestyle for the rest of my Life, and will recommend it to anyone.

I loved L180. Gave me TREMENDOUS results.

I am one of the lucky ones who met two successful graduates of Leanness Lifestyle University. I watched them transform their bodies and saw the fat melting away - fast. I was so impressed with their results that I signed up myself.

Since September 2012 I have lost 95lbs. Seriously, from September to June, 95lbs! Did I do this alone? No, I had some wise guidance from David Greenwalt, founder of Leanness Lifestyle. Was he caustic, threatening, rude, or insulting? No, he was direct and gave me sound information. In fact, he has been nothing but kind, supportive, and has cheered my every success. When I thank him, he reminds me that my success is 98% me and 2% help.

I am healthier than I have been in years. I feel fabulous and I look great. I have a new found confidence that I have not seen in myself for a long time. If you are looking for a sound program that actually gives amazing results, if you are serious about living a lean and fit lifestyle, then I urge you to try Leanness Lifestyle.

The truth is, you will have to change your eating. You will have to move your body. You will change your attitude and thinking. You will learn to live clean, eating real food, and enjoying more energy than you thought possible. You will have the support and cheers from other Leanness Lifestyle weight fighters.

Every dime that I have invested in myself has been money well spent. Did I ever pay a fine? NO. Would I do this again? Absolutely! Do I recommend Leanness Lifestyle and David Greenwalt to you? Yes, hands down!

I have found Dave to be a very courteous and polite individual. I have personally met him on one occasion and did not see in the least bit any of the negative things mentioned by the disgruntled ex-participant.
The fines are explained before you have to commit to them and you are warned MULTIPLE times before they are taken from you. Bottom line, you are fined if you do not do the work you have agreed to do and have agreed to be fined for no doing said work. If you have a problem with the fines you have dropped out in the 2 week beginning period.
The program does everything it promises plus alot more that you do not expect. I personally have lost over 70 pounds in 20 weeks using the tools and the knowledge gained from Leanness Lifestyle University.
Anyone not happy with this program just did not apply themselves to the very doable principles asked of them.
LLU is a great program and I would highly recommend it.

Leanness Lifestyle is the best thing I ever did for myself! I succeeded because I trusted in Coach Greenwalt and his program! If your looking to be lied to, this is NOT the program for you...You will only get the truth here at LLU! Its a REAL program that will being out the best in you - ALL OF YOU!

If you struggle with weight, this is the place to go. The founder David Greenwalt cares about everyone that signs up and personally does his best to help them achieve their goals.

I am one of the thousands who have achieved incredible success with this program. I am months away from my 65th birthday and I weigh what I did on my 16th birthday. have achieved a level of fitness that surpasses anything I achieved in my youth. Two things really bother me about the negative comments about "caustic coaching styles" and the like. First, that someone might read these and miss out on the chance to achieve the health and fitness levels that I have. Secondly, I am just incensed that someone who didn't benefit from the program because of a personality conflict or something similar, can come onto a site and cast derision on the life work of a very accomplished man. The success rate of the program is extremely high....over 90% I I would hope that the 10% who didn't make it to the finish line would do a little soul searching to determine their own level of responsibility for not completing the course.

To anyone that is genuinely looking to improve your lifestyle, quality of life and educate yourself as to how to do all of this independently, this program is what you want.
It IS NOT easy at first. Unfortunately, like everything worth doing in this world, you have to WORK and put EFFORT forward.
I have done the program for 3 years now.
The first year was to achieve my goals, and the next 2 years was because I LOVE THIS PROGRAM and it is a GREAT EXPERIENCE TO HAVE. Also, reaffirming your knowledge and rededicating yourself to a goal is a very fulfilling experience.

I have read the negative reviews and THEY ARE LAUGHABLE!!! All of these people are obviously the small percent of people that want something for nothing and expect it to be delivered to them, neatly wrapped, already completed with roses and sunshine blowing out their ass.

As a former college and professional coach, I have no doubt these people have zero discipline, zero accountability, but a AMAZING ability to blame others and make excuses for everything.

As a professional Fireman/Paramedic I am sure these are the people that will be in the back of an ambulance one day, blaming someone else for why they didn't take their meds or yelling at the medic to help them when they have obviously done very little to help themselves.

I believe in this program and Dave Greenwalt 100% and have referred it to many friends who have also had success.

To anyone who talks negative of the program, I feel sorry for you, truly.

I hope you find success and happiness somewhere somehow. But, I doubt you will.

I am a 2013 L180 graduate and I have been a member of LLU since 2003. I am currently at my lowest leannest body weight of my life at 169 lbs. There are no surprises with the Leanness Lifestyle. Coach makes no bones about fines being levied for failure to do what you signed up to do. There are no quick fixes to weight loss and failure is a choice. I wish there were more professionals like David whose one on one interaction produces true results. His program is about learning to live a healthier life. Diets are for fat people that want a quick fix, start and finish. LLU is so much more than that!

I tried many other programs but this one really worked and I stuck to it. I will be a lifestyler for the rest of my life and I am in total control of my life. Not only that, I have been able to control my diabetes and cholestrol in addition to losing 45+ pounds. I read the other reviews about Coach's behavior etc, but I believe he needs to be firm, strict and straight forward in order to help you control the situation you are in. As far as fines go, he doesn't charge without informing you and he also gives you ways to avoid fines. I believe he is totally fair and this program really works. I will recommend this to all my friends.

I have just completed the 20 Leanness Lifestyle coures and have found David's program to be the most comprehensive weightloss program I have done I have lost 22kgs. He has a wealth of knowledge whihc is updates constantly reading and researching on the all aspects of weightloss. I learnt so much more about how my body responds to food and reluctantly realised I wasn't as knowledgable as I thought I was. David helps you set goals and gives you all the tools and opportunities to reach out when life gets hard and you want to reach out and binge. I think he has pulled togehter an amazing program for those who REALLY do want to lose weight and are prepared to be challenged - Hey change is scarey we as humans are hard wired to resist change. I think David has done a fine job of creating a program to get us weight battlers to learn how to get slim and stay slim. Thanks David

I LOVE LLU! I could go on and on here about why this program is the BEST but if you really want to know, you will check it out for yourself.

All I can tell you is my personal experience. I have worked with Coach Dave for years. He does have a no nonsense attitude. I have quit a bootcamp due to MY lack of understanding of his approach and feeling as if he didn't 'understand'.

I rejoined the program knowing that IT WORKS and that it is not only science and research based, but that it also addresses the emotional aspects of weight gain as well.

I will be a graduate of this next class on June 26th! I am more than PSYCHED about this program and what it has done for me! I went from 150 pounds down to 126 in 20 weeks! I have added sexy, healthy and lean muscle all the while fighting my depression and chronic fatique. Needless to say, I AM a new person with a new outlook on life! I am 'sad' for this program to end but I am more than looking forward to the 'next phase' of my transformation journey and my education! What I have learned, nutritionally, as well as emotionally has been beyond life-changing. Not to mention all of the friends I have made during this class!
Coach Dave seems to have 'softened ' in his approach. He is much more approachable than people give him credit for and he is an amazing mentor and Coach. He is extremely knowleable in all aspects of fitness, health, wellness, not only nutritionally but emotionally as well! I believe his approach is, if you want it--you WILL do what it takes--the WORK-- to reach your goals. He will not 'coddle' you or hold your hand while you sit on the couch eating bon bons crying about how you just cannot seem to lose the weight! Tough Love people---that's what I think of it as!

I did not sign up for this program to NOT lose the weight. I knew it would take putting my trust in the expert and doing what he asked of me. I have the UTMOST respect for the man because he KNOWS what he's doing AND he deserves the respect I give him! He gets RESULTS! If I want someone to cry with me, I call my 'girlfriends'. If I want the TRUTH and SOLUTIONS to my weight problems as well as the emotional problems that are tied to it as well, I Private Message Coach Dave and I ALWAYS get a quick response that usually results in an 'ah ha' moment for me!

To those 'disgruntled' people posting on here, it's unfortunate that they are probably still finding themselves 10-50 pounds overweight, miserable, and still looking for a 'get thin-quick scheme!' Not gonna happen! It just doesn't work that way!

I LOVE the program and recommend it to ANYONE willing to face their fears and do it anyway! To anyone WILLING to persue a worthy endeavor and to persist without exception EVEN IF you feel belitted; ridiculted, etc. Feelings are fickle! Like I said, Face your fears, and do it anyway!
The PROGRAM Works and Coach Dave ROCKS!!!

I think the continuing theme is that the program is fantastic - heck - even the naysayer admitted it. Please readers, focus on good.

We don't all love each other in this world - some people don't like others just like I am sure some don't like me and some may not like you but I would hate to see you scared away from the program because someone doesn't like David Greenwalt- that is just cruel. This is my last post. I'm sure Negative Nelly will repost - sad that some people can't let go and live - they rather wallow in negativity. I hope I am wrong. I hope she can focus on whatever is working in her life instead of something that didn't work for her. I have said my piece.

One more thing that I can't believe I forgot to mention... you will meet the most supportive, kind hearted folks that this WORLD has to offer. There are folks from the US, UK, NZ, Aussies and more and you can't help but love them because you WILL feel the care and support from them. If you reach out, you will be overwhelmed with how much people want to help you succeed... you might even forget that it is a competition. Yeah, I forgot that part too... If you finish the program, you might win a monetary prize but let's face it, you win anyway because you will lose the weight and get healthier.

My name is Charlene and I joined LLU in February of 2013. My goal was to lose 51 pounds. Based on my long history with other programs, I figured that if I lost 25 pounds in 20 weeks, that would be an absolute success. Well, in the course of 21 weeks (I got the book and started 1 week early), I lost over 42 pounds! I’m less than 10 pounds away from my ultimate goal and I am psyched!!! Some of my colleagues lost more, others less but we are all winners because we persisted and we succeeded.

I was excited to hear about this website because I think more people should know about this program; yet, I am dismayed to read the negative comments. It makes me sad because I was the person looking for a miracle in January of 2013 and if I had read these comments, I may not have joined LLU and not lost the weight. I would hate to think that someone might lose out on an opportunity to turn their life around and get healthy because someone who quit the program has a gripe about a fine.

Here is my perspective: First, I will address some of the negative comments and then I will supplement with some things you may not know about the program.

No one ever suggested that David Greenwalt had to be called “Coach” – we do it out of respect. The man basically wrote a treatise on nutrition. He has helped so many people successfully lose weight – wouldn’t you want to show respect for a professional who is helping you? What do you call your doctor? Have you ever watched “Top Chef”? They are ALL chefs yet they call judge Tom, “Chef “ or “Chef Tom” – it is a show of respect – something that is really missing in today’s day and age but I will save that for another rant ;-).

I have never met Coach in person. He doesn’t know that I am writing this. He didn’t “send” me here. I came into the program because I met an LLU grad in person and was amazed at her transformation. We had tried many of the same weight loss programs which all resulted in the same way, limited success and regain! When I saw that she was succeeding at losing and maintaining, I knew I had to give this a try. You probably don’t have the benefit of knowing an LLU grad so I want to provide this feedback as a way of paying it forward. I believe LLU saved my life and it could save yours.

What is Coach like? Like I said, I never met him in person but coach is a no – nonsense kind of guy. He is like the family member who tells you what you need to hear and not what you always want to hear. Did it get me mad sometimes? Hell, yeah, until I cooled off and realized he might have a good point, there… Losing weight is an emotional journey – especially because you still have to deal with life! We aren’t on the biggest loser ranch – we are working and cooking and dealing with deadlines and projects and appointments and stresses with loved ones and going to parties and spending time with families, etc.

Today’s culture of “the customer is always right” doesn’t work with weight loss. Do you really think, “Awe, you had a rough day… You deserve to eat a box of HoHos… tomorrow is another day” is REALLY going to help you lose weight? You need a dose of “Crap happens. Stop with the HoHos – fail forward and recover quickly” Would you rather wallow in your self pity and food? Probably – we all would - but that isn’t going to help you in the long run. Learning Coach’s tools for failing forward and recovering quickly will help you far more than getting to the bottom of that box.

I don’t know the person(s) who wrote the negative comments but I know Wanda, Jayme, Sarah, the 2012 champ and his beautiful fiance and they are real people whose lives have been transformed – some far more than you can imagine – far more than just weight loss by being a part of this program.

The comment about “standardized letters” has me baffled. Perhaps this person has never joined a weight loss program before. I have been on weight watchers, LA weight loss, Jenny Craig, HMR, and loads of “book” diets. They are ALL standardized; however, while on those programs, I NEVER got a personalized letter from the head honcho of the program! With LLU, I haven’t counted but I must have WELL over fifty personal messages from Coach. While we are on this topic, no, LLU is not a diet. It is a lifestyle. A diet begins and ends and then you get to gain all your weight back! Yippee! This program teaches you how to control your weight while living your life.

I am honestly baffled by the comment that you have to eat a lot of protein and the person was sick of chicken. I think that person must have meant the comment for another program because that isn’t what LLU is about. What kinds of things have I eaten on LLU? Here is a non-exclusive list: roast beef, hamburger, steaks, pork, ham, turkey, chicken, eggs, quail, tuna, haddock, trout, cod, octopus, scallops, shrimp, lobster, crab, yogurt, brussel sprouts, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, onions, peppers, mushrooms, arugula, field greens, lettuce, spinach, kale, cabbage potatoes (all kinds), squash, pumpkin, watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, apples, oranges, peaches, nectarines, strawberries, mixed berries, mango, pineapple, cheeses (not just cottage cheese), nuts, seeds,bread, ice cream, chocolate and cookies. Other people have other foods on their lists. I’m certain there are people out there eating venison, wild boar, rice and quinoa and I doubt many eat octopus but that is how you get to eat for you and learn how to do it in a way where you can lose weight while enjoying real food that you like to eat! The food list may look very different for you. You will learn which foods affect you so that you can take control of your nutrition.
A typical day for me will start with an omelet and some oatmeal. Lunch might be a salad with chicken or a loaded potato or a fully plated meal like thai chicken and veggies in coconut milk gravy with pineapple or steak, meatloaf or bbq chicken with a baked potato and veg or tropical fruit cole slaw. Dinner will be similar to lunch. Snacks range from protein shake, protein bar, fruit, veg, cottage cheese and fruit, deli roll ups, yogurt and even cookies, ice cream and chocolate!
Exercise. You don’t have to have a gym membership. I joined a gym during my last month because I wanted more variety but I started with tapes, walking and resistance bands. Exercise is part of the program because you need it for toning, shaping, weight loss and overall health. You will learn; however, that more often than not, it is all about the food.
The Fines. Yes, the fines are part of the program because they act as leverage. Believe me, there were times when I felt lazy and I would remind myself about the fines and that would kick my butt into gear. Was I perfect on this program? Hell, no! Did I get fined on this program? Hell, no! Coach never even threatened me with a fine but I can tell you that just knowing the fine was a possibility kept me in line most of the time – that is the whole point.
Now for something you might not know about this program: It is so much more than a weight loss program. Several people who join don’t really have much weight to lose at all. There are professional body builders and there are people like me who rarely lifted a dumb bell! Everyone that joins and stays in the program is committed to their health and wellness. You will learn about strategies to help you stay the course. You will learn about different strategies that help with anxiety, emotions, relaxation. Do you have to engage in all these strategies? No but you have to learn about them so that you have them in your toolbox should you ever find the need or desire to tap into them.
If you are like me, you probably have a hard time putting yourself first. I’m a professional career woman, married and a mom (in order of life sequence and not in order of the value I place on those labels) . I have been putting others’ perceived emergencies over me for a long time. It is like the airline steward says “place the oxygen mask on your own face before you help someone else”. Sometimes, it takes being scared straight. If I didn’t learn how to make myself number 1, I might not be around to be number 5, 10 or 20.
Was I afraid to join this program? Yeah, a little. I have a busy, busy life and I didn’t want to join, get derailed with life and fail. For me, what helped was to remind myself of all the success that I had in my life (no, not talking dream job or being a millionaire) – I’m talking about the challenges that I have overcome. Everyone has a success. Remember that feeling and know that if you put in the time and energy into your health that you put into that, you can come through this with amazing success. Another thing that helped me was to think of how good my life is and how better it could get if I took better care of myself. Your journey may be different but I ask you to consider reaching out to those of us who actually finished the program.
Consider LLU and be well !

While I can be happy for those who have had success with the program, the continuing theme isn't that the program is the's the way the program is run by one individual that causes the negative feedback.
Having a leader whose style is caustic, abrasive and unapproachable seems counter to what should be. Best of luck to those for whom it works & be aware for those considering.

As of this morning, I am 120 lbs lighter than when I walked in the virtual doors of Leanness Lifestyle. And that’s down 175 lb total from my all time high. Coach Greenwalt would never take credit for weight I lost prior to joining LLU in Feb 2011, but that doesn’t mean I can’t give him and this program credit.

I have lost weight before, but never managed to maintain it. Until now. I believe that if I had not found this program when I did, that I would have regained the 55lbs I’d lost before coming here. That had been my previous weight loss history. Lose. Gain. Gain. Lose. Gain more. Not any more.

Why the Leanness Lifestyle works for me:
- Incredible individualized support. This is one of the most supportive communities that I am a part of. It starts with Coach Greenwalt who saw potential in me that quite frankly I didn’t. Next are the team of Assistant Coaches who guided me, made suggestions, and celebrated every little milestone with me. Last but not least were my fellow ‘Lifestylers’. What an incredibly powerful thing to have my fellow students support me through this journey. I have only met a few of them in real life, but the relationships we have built are strong.

- I am goal oriented. Having a target in place for calories, activity, and weight loss were all key for me. I need something to aim for so that I know that I am on the right track. I am not afraid of being held accountable for my actions. In fact, I thrive on it.

- I like to know how things work. During my time as a student at LLU, I've learned things like what causes people to overeat, how foods that I have never considered could hamper my weight loss, and gained a deeper insight into what drives me personally.

- Straightforward approach. From day one, expectations were set. David explained what the program would entail (homework, daily weigh ins, potential fines, etc). This was a partnership. He taught me the skills (nutrition, activity, lifestyle) to live a lean life and I applied them. Pretty simple, huh?

- The online tools to track my activity, meals, and weight. Having everything laid out in front of me made it quite simple to see where I stood vs. my goal at any point in time.

- No special foods required. No pills or potions required. A quick trip to the grocery store or local farmstand and I'm set for the week.

- Internet based – Not having to travel to meetings at a set time was great. I could learn from the comfort of my home on my own schedule. Time spent traveling to meetings was better used at the gym or doing other activities to support my healthy lifestyle.

I took a leap of faith to join a program unlike anything I'd ever done before. Best. Move. Ever!

I too have had a very bad experience with Leanness Lifestyle and Dave Greenwalt. He is very rude and condescending. He is known for running his site like a dictator. Be careful about giving him credit card information as he can apply severe fines to your credit card for what he sees as non-compliance with his program. He has turned off many members with his behavior.
