All foods are allowed. At the center of our philosophy is nutritional balance which is essential to maintaining your ideal weight in the long run. Banning foods leads to obsessive compulsive behaviour and frustration. It also promotes excess consumption of other foods, thereby causing the yo-yo effect (weight cycling). No food group is excluded in the LeBootCamp method. We're about a little bit of everything in moderation, and offsetting the effects of certain foods with "healthier" choices.
Our bodies are equipped to rid themselves of the toxins we ingest, produce, inhale or absorb. However, the combination of a sedentary lifestyle together with stress, pollution, junk food, pesticides etc. significantly raises our toxin levels, thus overwhelming our body's cleansing functions. This is why the LeBootCamp program begins with a Detox Phase to cleanse our system, followed up by one Turbo Detox Day (TDD) per week for the long term. A cleansed body paves the way for a slim body!

Valerie Orsoni has recommended a gluten-free diet for many years, long before it became a widespread trend. Gluten is a protein found in many grains such as wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt and kamut; it's role in baking is to provide elasticity to the dough. Studies show that limiting gluten coupled with a healthy balanced diet supports the detoxification of your digestive system and facilitates weight loss. Valerie herself is gluten-sensitive, and buckwheat has thus become the flagship food of the LeBootCamp method. Its extraordinary health virtues enable the body to naturally cleanse itself, thus promoting weight loss.
