I eat most types of fish except the types laden with mercury (tuna, swordfish, shark, etc). I love salmon, shrimp, red snapper...most fish actually.
Edamame is not something I would eat either. However, fermented soy is VERY healthy!!! Have you tried miso soup? Or tempeh? I haven't tried tempeh, but I LOVE miso!!!

Here is some info on soy

Well, soy and tofu are just really unhealthy. I avoid soy and all of it's forms as best as I can. And tilapia is a farmed fish (unless it says it's WILD on the package it is farmed)

Thanks for the review, Laura! I was surprised she had ever said margarine was ok. I've only read one of her books, but I don't remember seeing that. Margarine's about as far from a clean food as you can get. Ick!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Thanks for the info, Laura -- I was considering this one, but I won't. I noticed that she does use a lot of soy products in her recipes. Um, no thank you!

Glad to hear about the book.

I was looking at this book too, so thank you for sharing your review!

I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. -Matthew 17:20

"Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favour compared with the products of nature, the living cell of the plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life."
- T. A. Edison

OK. I got the book. Had to see what kind of "secret information" Tosca has been holding back. lol

PROS:

Good tips on how to conquer cravings

She says to just GIVE UP sugar. Hooray!

Good section on herbs, roots and superfoods. "Herbs for health and weightloss"

She has limited starchy carbs to 1-2 servings per day

Meal plans look do-able

She reinforces portion size and portion control

Talks about organic is better. And it is better than non-rorganic. Not simply for the reasons of less toxins like pesticides and insecticides but also (and she didn't mention this), that when you buy organic you are guaranteed an NON GMO food product.

She has added coconut and coconut oils to her recipes. YAY!


CONS:

She promises you the ULTIMATE DREAM body in 28 days.

She has changed her take on margarine. It USED to be "good" now it's "bad". No further explanation...

Saturated fat is "bad". She doesn't really seem to know the difference between different types of saturated fats. If she does know she doesn't explain this...

Talks about organic meats being better. But I would take grass fed meats over organic everyday.

She says that we should always drink distilled water. Distilled water is like a sponge and is great to take for periods of detoxification or when chelating heavy metals from your body. Long term use will deplete all of your body's mineral stores

The recipes look OK, but nothing really original or wonderful. Also, I think that most people will have a hard time finding foods like wild boar and elk or be bothered to cook things like duck.

Ummm. HEY! I thought she said NO SUGAR for this 28 day diet, yet there it is (honey)in her recipes. (she had listed HONEY as one of the forms of SUGAR to be aware of...)

She is still using soy, tofu and tilapia in her recipes. emoticon


FINAL NOTE: Save your money. Nothing new in here and just more conflicting information fro Tosca. I hope my wasting my money on this book has saved some of you some of your hard earned cash.
