More About the Author

Author, columnist, motivational speaker, reality TV star, radio personality, consultant, mother and wife, Tosca Reno has been inspiring millions with the Eat-Clean Diet series and sharing the success she's had with weight loss and Clean Eating.

At age 40, author Tosca Reno found herself miserable, overweight, stuck in an unhappy marriage, and living an unfulfilled life. Her self-esteem was at an all-time low. She barely recognized the woman she had become.

Tosca Reno found herself reborn when she realized she was the architect of her own destiny. She accepted new challenges to become super fit and healthy. She entered bodybuilding contests and started writing articles for Oxygen, a top fitness magazine. Her struggles and hardships in the past served to both inspire and motivate her in her career as a writer, motivational speaker and fitness celebrity. Her work encourages others to do for themselves what she has done - reinvent herself from being fat and frumpy to lean and purposeful.

Reno quickly earned her own monthly feature "Raise the Bar." The column targets women over 40 looking for motivation, nutrition and training advice. Reno shares her no-holds-barred wisdom in a firm but tender-hearted manner. Oxygen readers instantly connect with Tosca's advice, delivered with friendly compassion.

"Raise the Bar" readers wanted more. They wrote with countless questions, inspiring Tosca to craft the best-selling Eat-Clean Diet series. With her friendly arm-around-the-shoulder approach, Tosca teaches others how to alter their eating habits, to lose or maintain weight, gain muscle, boost metabolism, increase energy and be happier, healthier people living with purpose.

The Eat-Clean Diet series is a huge hit throughout North America, with over one million copies sold. Tosca has struck a chord with the diet-weary. In fact the most common response she gets is: "This just makes so much sense! I will never give up eating this way! It's so easy!"

Tosca has appeared on numerous national radio and TV shows and has been featured in countless magazine and newspaper articles. Extra TV in Los Angeles recently created a new feature specifically for Tosca, called "Tosca Reno's Eat-Clean Ambush Cleanse," in which she helps a young man with diabetes clean up his kitchen, his shopping cart and his attitude. Extra TV has since filmed several health-based segments with Tosca.

Canada's VIVA Network is airing Tosca's new TV show, Tosca: Flexing at 49, for eight weeks starting in June 2009. In the series, Tosca is followed by film crews as she goes about her busy life - meeting deadlines for her columns and books, giving seminars and making appearances, helping families with their health and diet struggles, answering emails from fans, dieting, competing and looking after her large family at the same time!

Tosca's latest book The Eat-Clean Diet for Men will be followed by a hardcover cookbook in Fall 2009. She's also working on a slew of writing projects to be released over the coming year, including a new book with Harlequin's new non-fiction division. Tosca continues to write her monthly column in Oxygen magazine, along with articles on motivation, life, training and nutrition in magazines including Maximum Fitness, Reps! and Clean Eating.

Tosca grew up in Kingston, Ontario and now lives in Caledon, Ontario. She turned 50 in May 2009.

I actually liked Tosca's first book much more than this one, and I had high hopes for this one. To me, the first Eat Clean Diet book was more simple and easy to follow and plan. I'm not going to run out and buy bee pollen, weird supplements and expensive oils that will completely deplete my grocery budget. I think this book will be more of a turn off to a lot of people because of that. Not to mention, some of the items she seems to not be able to live without aren't even available in some areas. I have a family to think about, and I can't spend all of our grocery money on a tiny bottle of weirdness.

On another note, I have stopped subscribing to Oxygen Magazine because it might as well be renamed, "Tosca Central". When you marry the publisher, I guess you get a lot more space than other, well-deserving models and experts. I am tired of hearing about her quite frankly. Sure, she has some sound nutritional advice, and has had great success, but she has had cosmetic surgery and she gets a ton of promotion for being married to Robert Kennedy (Oxygen's publisher). The difference between her writing in her first book compared to the writing in this book, shows that her success has gone straight to her head. She looks phony to me now. There are many other successful women out there who have great tips.

All in all, I have had good success with her first book, and about the only thing I wanted to do with this book was get it out of my house. I'd highly recommend her first book if you're looking for a more easy-to-follow plan. And I'd recommend checking this book out from your library instead of buying it to see for yourself.

I purchased the original _Eat-Clean Diet_ book when it came out a few years ago, and used the principles in it to lose sixteen pounds (two dress sizes). Recently, I've been a little more lax in my eating, so I purchased this book last week to help motivate me to get back on track with my eating for the new year.

Before purchasing this newer edition, I was worried that it would be very similar to the first version of the book, but, as Reno explains, it contains over 100 pages of new text. While there are some chapters that are similar in both books (like chapters on the importance of drinking water and eating breakfast), there are a lot of new ideas. If you are trying to decide whether to purchase the older, original edition of this book or this one, I would recommend buying this one since it contains more recent information about nutritional studies. If, like me, you already own the original book, I think you'll still find the ideas in here useful and inspirational.

I find Reno to be very motivating, and, if you're struggling to lose weight, you will probably find her books really helpful. The idea behind clean eating is that you eat foods that are as close to their natural state as possible, without adding in extra sugar, chemicals, etc. Eating six meals a day ensures that you never go hungry, and you don't have to worry about calorie counting.

Another great feature of this book is that she includes a vegan meal plan in it. The first edition was very centered around meat, which made it difficult for me (as a lacto-ovo vegetarian) to see how I could incorporate all of her suggestions since I wasn't about to gnaw on a chicken breast as my morning snack.

When I order from Amazon I rely fairly heavily on these personal reviews so I felt compelled to share my experience with this book to help others. In short this book is a whole lot of the same old same old. The first 13 chapters are nothing more than a repeat of all of the information that books, newspapers, magazines, etc., have been saying for years. There are full chapters on subjects like sugar, longevity, and basic exercise. Then finally you get to chapter 14 which actually sets out the eat clean plans...two pages each...nothing new! This eat clean diet is a whole lot of infomercial and not alot of substance! In case I am not making myself clear....SAVE YOUR MONEY.

One of the earlier (negative) reviewers said they were turned way off by the chapter in which Tosca "suggests that women get a boob job." Perhaps the reviewer didn't actually take the time to read the book--Tosca states clearly that yes, she did get implants, but it was because she had nothing left up there after losing her own weight, and FOR HER she felt she wanted to fill out her clothing again. She wasn't saying everyone should get a boob job.

Also, the reviewers who say that eating real food is expensive, probably haven't tried very hard to find different places to buy their food. If you shop at an expensive grocery store for all your produce for example, then yes, you'll pay more, because there are a lot of "middle men" that have to get paid. Go to the farmer's market--WAY cheaper, WAY tastier, and it lasts WAY longer!

With regards to the book itself--they don't claim that what they're saying is original. But the sad truth is that even though the info is "out there", the majority of people have no idea how to eat healthy food, or indeed what it even is. The Standard American Diet isn't whole, healthy and delicious foods. Pretty clear, isn't it? Look out your window.

The book, when I first read it, inspired me as it has so many. I learned what was healthy, and how to cook delicious clean meals. I'm not rich--I don't pay any more for my groceries than I did before.

I have also spoken to many (and I do mean MANY) people who have learned to lead clean, healthy lives, and they are all most definitely the better for it. It's real food--food that we as a species were evolved to eat.

Changing your life for the better takes time, and information.
