I've reached a point of pure desperation when it comes to shedding these last few inches on me. I don't care so much about weight (especially knowing that muscle weighs more), but the inches are a whole different story. For the past two and a half months, I've been doing p90x and have noticed quite a change in comparison to simply doing zumba for 30 minutes 3-4 times a week; I can not only do a crapton of pushups (at least 30 REAL ones), but I also have muscle!

OK - I probably need to lose more than ten pounds but this was still a good read. I didn't get to try any of the recipes before I had to return it to the library. I think it's helpful to read books like this occasionally just to tweak and make gradual improvements in my diet and that of my family. Last time I read a book by the same author was shortly after Parker was diagnosed with MCAD and I gave up fast food. This time I'm giving up chocolate bars and trying to include vegetables at every ...more
Not my favorite of her Eat-Clean series, but still very motivating. Generally, once you've read the first Eat-Clean book, you have all the information you need to start working towards eating and living that life style. I would mostly count on any of the subsequent books for motivation and recipes. Some of them in this title are DELICIOUS, while others are just a little too out there for me to even try. I love the layout of these books and definitely suggest skimming at least one of them to ...more
It was good. I have been reading about making better (clean) food choices so the information wasn't a huge surprise. If you have zero knowledge about nutrition, this is a good book to start with. While some of the recipes look delicious, some seem to call for odd ingredients my local market does not carry. In addition, I work full time and attend college classes so making yogurt cheese is just not something I have time for. In addition, I worry about the extreme restrictions she has regarding ...more
I really liked it. This is the book that kick started my passion for health and fitness. It lays everything out in a simple way that makes complete sense. Feeding your body right is the best way to feel great and look great. It was an easy read and there are tons of tips and guides for helping the reader get started with eating a clean diet. There are meal plans, recipes and even exercise routines included. I definitely recommend it if you're looking for a healthy lifestyle change, And even if ...more
Overall a great plan for a revolutionized way of looking at food. I do like that Tosca makes no bones about the fact that what you eat impacts the way you look more than anything else. Sometimes I try to convince myself that if I just work out then all will be good, but it's just not true. Tried some of the recipes and mist are good, but more complicated than recipes from the Eat Clean cookbook (which if you are a vegetarian/vegan is excellent).
This was pretty good. The workout and eating plans are simple and to the point and it had a vegetarian plan! Sweet Pickles! The eating plan is based on whole real foods which is awesome. There wasn't a lot of new information here from her other books. The Cooler 1 Plan is a little more varied than her previous book. As usual, there are some tasty recipes as well. Sleek design, easy to read, motivating and inspiring. I especially appreciated the chapter on The Next Step and Self Sabotage.
This was a great read and very inspiring. Well, I should revise that: Reno has some great ideas and good tips, but I haven't yet felt the drive to change what I am currently doing, so I guess it wasn't that inspiring after all. I have lofty intentions of eating even healthier, but I'm not a nut and I refuse to eat healthy all of the time. Yes, I refuse.
The best of all of her books- the only downfall is that it isn't exactly clear on a few things, like does she allow any bread? She talks about whole grain products, but by the look of her cooler plan it looks like she doesn't allow any grains. A lot of the tips she gives to lose those last 10 pounds make sense though and I'll be implementing several!
New Year's Resolution time! Peel off those last 10 pounds, indeed. Probably won't follow all the meal/menus as I am not as "fancy" an eater as Ms. Reno. But I think I can follow the Cooler 1 / Cooler 2 ideals and still get off the last 15 (or 20 if I really want a buffer). My goal is to get to 19-21% bodyfat. I'm at 26%. 20 pounds should do it.
I started reading this book on accident (really).. But I'm now a Tosca fan! I knew a little about Clean Eating before, but now I really get it and am trying to make better choices for me and my family. I'll read her other books too- they're great for staying inspired!
