Hi! My name is Mindy and I'm thrilled to find this team! I'm part of two other teams for clean eating, but this is the only one thats talking about Tosca. I love her books and use all of them. I agree with Jennyshills- a lot of people have put thier own twist to clean eating. Before I got Tosca's cookbook I thought any form of sweetener or anything canned was a no no. I'm glad I can use natural sweeteners, though I think I'll still try to steer clear of canned things if only for the high salt content. I'm trying to really incorporate this way of eating into my life compleately and one way I've found is to keep a blog where I keep my clean and affordable recipes. Why do so many recipes have exotic weird ingreadients? I'm more interested in making regular ingreadients taste great. I only post recipes for things I can get at my local grocery store. You're more than welcome to visit at http://shehasgoodtaste.blogspot.com/ and I hope to hear about some great recipes from you all!
I am a new fan of the eat clean diet/ lifestyle. I appreciate Tosco's advice from her extended edition book as well as her recipe book. Although i think everyone has to put their own 'twist' on eating clean. For example she could nto give up coffee. I dont think i will be able to give up peanut butter for the natural. I am excited and cant believe how much food i am intaking, and feeling great about it!!
I love eating Clean. I have all of Tosca's books and I'm so excited for her new Eat Clean for Men book to come out. Also - she will be on an extra "special" Ambush Lifestyle Makeover's on Saturday 3/7/09. I'm not sure of the time yet, still trying to determine.

I do! I do! In fact, I may have to get a bigger cooler, cuz I find sometimes my food doesn't all want to fit inside. I may be a little anal, in that my meals and snacks are planned for the day (I pay attention to macros, so i'm leaving nothing to chance) so I don't packed random food in my bag, and I never pack "just in case food" cuz I will end up eating it.
I joined this group because I'm a big fan of Tosca Reno and admire the fact that she was able to pull herself together after the age of 40 to become a fitness model. Her Clean Eating Diet is actually a modified body builder/fitness model diet. And is not really a diet, but a way of life.
I especially like her cooler-packing concept to help me maintain a Clean Eating lifestyle. Anybody else pack a cooler on a regular basis?
Hi I have one of her books, the main one, she also has a cookbook, and just out in our stores here a cooking for kids cookbook. There is also a magazine out called eating clean that we can get here too ( Nova Scotia Canada).
I do not follow it completely but try some of the ideas in the book.
I have not heard of this diet but it does have my attention and looking for other who want to eat more fresh fruits and veggies. I will have to see if they have this book at the library. I also appreciate the blog on what to look out for when shopping. Does this book similar to Kevin Trudeau's (sp?) book what the government doesn't want you to know???
