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 browsed the book at the store and saw a number of interesting recipes, so I bought it. I started reading it in detail at home and noticed immediately that the "Clean Granola" seemed to be relatively low in calories for 2/3 cup (208 calories, it states) while containing a large amount of nuts. Nuts are high in fat, so there had to be a mistake. Sure enough. I took the time to slowly find all caloric values for the endless list of ingredients, and when it was all added up and then divided to the specified amount of 2/3 cup, my calculator came up with ALMOST DOUBLE THE CALORIES. All I can say to this is if you sell a diet book that people believe to be the last diet they will ever be on, please be accurate!

A very small complaint... if it's got to be healthy and clean, why not inform the reader that UNsulphured dried fruits are widely available and much healthier?

And who can afford bison? Beef is getting almost too expensive, leave alone bison!

How about this one: page 45 "Coconut oil is valued by chefs for its high smoke point...", then on page 113 appears a chart showing coconut oil to have one of the lowest smoke points. So which is it????

If there are mistakes that a layperson like myself can easily pick out, how many more mistakes are there that I haven't found and furthermore, CAN I TRUST THIS BOOK AT ALL?

Many recipes contain odd ingredients... orange blossom water, for instance. I can't think of a shop to find that in, not living in the city, not living in a high income, gourmet-yuppie area... I'm beginning to suspect that there was a bit of desperation for new recipes for yet another new book in the Eat Clean series.

I purchased this book with excitement, I even pre-ordered it! I purchased the first book and absolutely loved it. I have been a clean eater for many years. Tosca's first book was a great addition to my cookbook library. The follow up book to me seems "too much" yet at the same time "nothing". It has way too many ingredients and even some hard to find items. Then the extreme with filler recipes. What's the fascination with coconut products? Some recipes are almost boring. Trying to get the general population to even remotely eat healthy, let alone clean is a hugh task. If you make it too involved and to some too much effort, the book will either be sold as new/used or it will sit on the shelf. I don't see the passion in this book as with the first. The first book is clearly more of an example of clean eating. Simple, fast and tastes great. Tosca has lost touch with her roots on this book. If I want a real international cuisine cookbook, I will purchase a real international cookbook. Thanks, but no thanks.

Tosca's book is a beautiful treasure, with its slick thick paper and stunning photos--enough so to be a coffee table book. The Eat Clean diet is basically getting back to whole foods and making things from scratch, thus avoiding so many of the toxic preservatives as well as excitotoxins that food companies put in food to make them addictive. Tosca uses sea salt in her recipes, which is much more healthful than table salt. (Although she uses agave instead of sugar, its healthfulness is now questionable.) She also uses many herbs. Everything is fresh!

As the author of a raw food book, I enjoy seeing what is out there in the cooked world so I can make even more nutritious raw food versions. I found plenty of inspiration in this book. To my delight, some of the recipes are already raw! The book contains over 150 recipes. The chapters contain recipes from the following food categories: breakfast dishes; salads, grains and pilafs; appetizers; soups & stews; recipes from foods from her garden; entrees; baked goods & treats. The final chapter contains recipes from a party menu. Among those recipes is a most delicious one for kale chips (a favorite one I make in my dehydrator instead of the oven.)

Most noteworthy is how the information is presented for each recipe. The title is at the top, and just below are the prep time, cook time and yield. Below that is a list of ingredients needed. To make it easier to skim, the food itself is in a distinct color whereas the amount (ex: "tsp", "ml") and other info (ex: "with leaves") is in black. This way you can quickly see which ingredients you need to shop for. To the right of the ingredients is a paragraph about the main food or recipe. Below that are the step by step instructions for preparation.

I LOVE this new cookbook! I am a Eat-Clean Diet fan but have since become vegan. Guess what? There are 77 vegan recipes in this book as well as 41 vegetarian recipes. For all of you meat lovers don't worry there are 25 meat dishes as well and some of the vegan/vegetarian recipes could easily have the addition of meat if you wanted. Tosca also uses coconut oil in a few of the recipes and I'm so happy about that because it is such a nutritional powerhouse! Thanks Tosca for another fabulous book!!!
