The Eat-Clean Diet by Tosca Reno
Tired of yo-yo dieting, self-deprivation, and unhealthy eating? Want to lose weight, get fit, and stay that way for the rest of your life? This book is filled with solid nutritional advice, a two-week meal plan, delicious healthy recipes, and real-life stories to keep readers motivated.
Tosca Reno’s THE EAT-CLEAN DIET cuts through the maze of fad-diet misinformation, presenting a lifestyle plan that guarantees healthy, steady weight-loss by eating five or six meals a day.
Reno, who struggled with her weight for more than twenty years, discovered the Eat-Clean lifestyle at age forty. Within a year, she not only lost weight, but gained body tone and overall fitness – so much so that she became a cover girl, bathing-suit model, and an inspiration for other women who want to look and feel great. For the past several years, Reno has been a columnist and spokesperson for the women’s fitness magazine Oxygen.
According to Reno, the Eat-Clean Diet works because it incorporates healthy eating habits into daily life. “It’s not just a diet; it’s a lifestyle,” she explains. “Eating Clean isn’t about
denying yourself or going hungry, it’s about eating with thought and planning. By adopting the Eat-Clean lifestyle, your body will have a chance at looking its all-time best.”
THE EAT-CLEAN DIET focuses on consuming delicious, nutrient-rich “clean” foods at regular intervals throughout the day, beginning with breakfast. Eating five or six smaller meals a day allows the body’s metabolism to burn steadily, keeping insulin and blood-sugar levels stable – preventing hunger pangs and cravings for unhealthy foods like soda or chocolate. For Reno, a “clean” food is anything nutritious that is as close as possible to how it occurs in nature, with no added color, taste, or preservatives, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, poultry, fish, dairy, whole grains, and more.
