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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
