Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

With her Eat-Clean Diet series and Oxygen magazine column, Reno has enlisted thousands of women for an intensive regimen of diet, weight training, and self-motivation. Here, 51-year-old Reno and a team of experts--fitness publisher Robert Kennedy, Beverly Hills physician Uzzi Reiss, psychologist Michelle Gannon, plastic surgeon Trevor Born, and makeup artist Carol Shaw--tailor her program for women, primarily wives and mothers, approaching middle age. Her promise: by taking center stage in their own lives, readers can make age 50 the new 30. In chapters on health, diet, fitness, beauty, and self-esteem, Reno amplifies Eat-Clean principles with specific tactics for readers in their 30s, 40s, and 50s. Spotlights on celebrity role models (Oprah, Goldie Hawn, Halle Berry, etc.) and first-person success stories from more typical women raise the inspirational bar. While sensible and doable, the eating plans, recipes, workout routines, beauty tips, and mood boosters are trumped by Reno's irresistible call to action. Reno's personal transformation from overweight, depressed housewife to fitness competitor, model, and TV host is persuasive, as are her age-defying physique and charismatic personality.

It would have been nice if the book had mentioned that SOMEWHERE... She just skips that important piece of information.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having read many of Tosca Reno's books, I preordered this one. I didn't realize until after ordering that it was for people in their 30s, 40s and 50s. Since I am in my mid 60s, it does not directly address this decade as it does the other three. Almost no mention is given of people in their 70s, 80s or 90s. So, it is a great resource for middle-agers. I guess when Tosca gets into her 60s - that age will be covered, but I need help now. That said, this book is valuable for anyone interested in a healthier life style. The main difference between this and her other books is terminology. The phrase "your best body now" plan is used rather than the "eat-clean diet" plan. The first part of the book starts with a brief telling of her life story and her health journey. Along the way, there are stories and pictures of other middle-aged people and their success in becoming healthier. The nuts and bolts starts with the second part and begins with the best body diet - virtually the same as a eat clean diet - small meals through out the day, emphasis on veggies and fruits with a lot of protein. Of course the usual admonishment to avoid sugar, white flour, processed foods, saturated fats and trans fat is here. There is a grocery list that can come in handy to widen one's choices and 1 sample meal plan. After this, the book gives advice for the 30s, 40s and 50s. Each has some valuable advice for people of all ages. The next section is on fitness and discusses cardio and gives illustrations of strength training. Most of these exercises are done on a weight bench. Even though I have a bench, I usually do mine on the floor, bed or couch. Exercises using gym machines are also shown. All body parts are covered with a suggested work out plan. Again suggestions are given for each decade of the 30s, 40s and 50s.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
This is essentially "Eat-Clean" repackaged to a different segment of the population.

What I loved about this book (over Reno's other books) is her bio of how she went from frumpy to fabulous. To be fair, she does go into this in her other books however, not quite as in depth as she does here. There is an undercurrent of metaphysical/spirituality within the book which is also quite new to Reno's material; she delves into her past of dishonoring herself while putting her husband and children first, her desperate need to please others, followed by how she pulled herself up with incredible courage. By loving herself first and fully, she was able to turn her life around completely; she created a body beautiful, a new husband, a new career, hope, a solid purpose, and a new lease on life. Her story is quite remarkable! After the inspirational bio, Reno also seems to speak to that discouraged part of the reader to become a real 'cheerleader' and the voice of encouragement insisting vibrant health (and a vibrant life) is indeed possible. Outside of this, it reiterates much of what her other books have to say about 'eating clean', strength-based training, and also includes recipes. This book is part fitness/nutrition manual and part personal development coach.

What I disliked about this book is that a lot of it is repackaged material from her other 'eat clean' books. It's a nice attempt to get into the beauty side of things however, outside of how eating clean can affect your exterior appearance, I don't see how make up and facials is relevant; this part of the book would have been better placed in a separate book or left to the experts. Reno could have used this space to elaborate on how a healthy lifestyle affects the mind chemically, how this change affects one's emotions, and how all this (along with the physical changes) drives up self-esteem and revolutionizes every aspect of one's life.

Your Best Body Now Harlequin Press 2010
By : Tosca Reno

Reviewed: Dr. Joseph S. Maresca
____________________________________________________

This is an excellent book which contains a number of
very effective strategies on how to create a beautiful body.
The author provides statistical details on what the factors
consist of; namely 80% nutrition, 10% training and 10% genes.

The gym is a place where members can release great tension,
forget about eating and boost the metabolism for planned
meals thereafter. The author recommends eating every 2-3
hours in smaller portions. The purpose is to reduce cravings.

Nutritionally, we should eat less animal products, whole milk,
white rice, sugar, candy, caffeine and transfats.
Proteinuria stems from the inability of the kidneys to
process excess protein. For this reason, we should be much
more careful with portion control with regard to consumption
of animal products.

A corollary is to avoid calorie dense foods like french
fries and processed foods with little or no nutritive value.
Sweets should be eliminated-period. Veggie proteins are
highly sought. Examples are quinoa, seaweeds and soy.

Spices should be added to food to enhance flavor and
boost anti-oxidants. Examples are curry, ginger, cinnamon,
cayenne, nutmeg, seeds, anise, sea salt, vinegar,
low sodium broths and extra virgin oil.

Foods like beans, squash lettuce and fiber may promote
optimal peristalsis. Known sources of calcium
derived from nature are fortified soy, spinach
and broccoli .
