I'm not sure exactly what a lean diet is and I have no idea about your doc's plan.  I suggest calling his office if you have questions.

Lean diet for me was the following:

No soda reg or diet
No white flour, white rice, potatotes, or corn or pea. 
all veggies must be grown above the ground not in the ground
fruits- stay with berries they have least amount of sugar

What to eat-
Berries once a day
Fish broiled or baked or grilled
Beef
Chicken baked or broiled no breading
turkey broiled or baked
Water
Crystal light
unsweetened tea
SF popsicles
Greek Yougurt less than 6 grm of sugar
turkey sausage ok
eggs
Natural peanut butter only ( rest have too much sugar
Hummas
beans
salsa


I was also told not to have more than 6 grams of sugar in any meal.

I would definately call your doctor and ask for a detailed list of "approved foods". From my speculating a lean diet should still be protein forward, lean meats and beans with veggies and fruits after.

I would think lean diet would be to cut back or cut out all the crap.  We all know what those items are.
