From what I have read on her site, Recharged is the best book all around for getting and staying on the diet. Variety in recipes can be achieved through the eatcleandiet.com site and through purchasing additional books of hers.
She looks fantastic because she is not damaging her skin by laying out in the sun, that's why she pushes the spray tan. I have worked in all aspects of the beauty industry for 20 years and there are fantastic spray products that estheticians can use! Just because one person got a crappy job of it or a bad color only reflects the product that was used and the inexperience of the person applying it. Sugar cane based sprays, in my professional opinion are the best. And everyone gets a free consultation with a new hairstylist, it is no different when choosing an esthetician...you have to interview them too!
As for breast implants...I know a lot...and I mean a LOT of women who have them. If you only get them to make your body more proportionate, they're fantastic. Through the nipple is the best result with the least down time.
Every woman that works out does NOT look like a man...there is something incredibly sexy about a strong woman...especially when she loves her femininity! When you look at pics from a competition...they show pics of the gals just hanging out and going shopping wherever they are...they are definitely not going to be confused for men...
Figure vs. Bikini bodies are where the line differs. Figure competitors have clearly capped shoulder muscles, where bikini bodies are softer.
Real tan/fake tan, real boobs/fake boobs...who gives a crap...I would take looking like that any day of the week...with an ass that you could bounce a freaking loonie off of to boot please!
Btw...single mom...work on finding good alternative ingredients that you can afford. Maybe send a msg to Tosca herself and perhaps she can get back to you on a more affordable ingredient list. If not, there is a wealth of information online...I sometimes look for alternatives too on oxygen magazines's site or bodybuilding.com and usually find something I can use.

Best of luck everyone...sorry this was a long one...there were sooo many replies to the first! LOL

So agreeing with you! Who wants to look like a dude w/boobs? I do understand it is addicting. I am more than happy being toned and fit.

I so look forward to all your comments. What a great Team! emoticon

Yes, I find the deep tans and giant silicon breasts off-putting as well, but it's the fitness competition culture. It seems to be this weird mix of natural fitness, born of lots of hard work, with beauty-pageant fakeness - makeup worthy of a drag queen and boobs at least as big as the butt; almost so they won't be mistaken as a man? As I understand it, the tan and oiling are necessary to clearly show all the muscle definition under the bright lights. However, in this day of tiny cameras and hi-def video, one would hope some of that would go away...

Some of the ingredients are pricey, once you find them. But here are some that aren't. I understand the dilema emoticon

well the tan part I don't have to worry about! LOL I have a built in DARK tan! LOL But the breast implants scare me. I don't have to worry about it now because I am over weight and a 42DD. BUT so was SlahDivia (I might have spelled it wrong) when she started and now she is like a B cup. I like having a nice size chest and loosing that with weight loss does sadden me. Breast implants sounds good but the process and cost scares me. Having something fake in me and being scared to lay on my stomach is also a concern with me. LOL

I have the eat clean diet recharged and the best body at any age (can't remember the exact name) that came out most recently. I really like them both. I haven't tried any if the recipes yet but I do want to try the new cookbook.

It doesn't bother me that she gets spray trans and has fake breasts. Virtually every fitness model and competitor has them. I have friends with breast implants, doesn't seem like a big deal- just a personal preference. As for spray tans, I would like to try it! But likely won't. I am very pale blond and have red head skin- totally white and I am incapable if getting a tan. I only burn. I spend all summer hiding under hats, sunscreen, long linen tunics, etc. it totally sucks!! But a spray tan would probably look really bizarre on me, but I might try it sometime just fire the heck of it! And I don't know if putting all those chemicals on your largest organ is a good idea. But whatever....to each her own.

I do use a light fake tan lotion on my legs sometimes, just to take the pasty "edge" off. Trust me, when literally every person you have ever met has looked at you in horror and said "omg you are So White!!" It's a good thing to take the edge off with a little fake tanner! On the other hand, it's time to bleach my teeth again. Looking kind of dingy. So I guess everyone has to decide where their limit of fakeness is.

I haven't read it yet but maybe what she was trying to get at is that a spray tan is better than laying in the sun and exposing yourself to the risk of skin cancer. Or that it is better than lotions for those doing fitness competitions. I don't know. Personally, I don't like the look of a spray tan or of fake & bake tans. And since I have had basal cell skin cancer I now have no desire to lay out either. Hmmm....maybe we can write and ask her. LOL.

Her first one is a good one! Did you have a favorite recipe? I am always looking for something new to cook.
emoticon Spray tan... are you kidding? I had it done twice and was VERY disappointed. It looked so UNnatural, my feet looked dirty which drove me crazy! Plus, when I got out of my car, the seat looked dirty. Thank goodness it came out. I felt like "Pig-Pen" from the Peanuts. Left a dirt mark where ever I went for that day...
Breast Implants... another disappointment!
Well, the good thing: there are always Pro's & Con's, a certain thing may work for one and not another. I love the fact we can "bounce" all this stuff off eachother.

I own all the eat clean books!! My favorite one was her first book with the cookbook. She has some great pointers in these books but a few bad ones, the only 2 things I didn't like about the books was she seemed to be pressing breast implants in one book ( and my chest may be smaller but I am happy to live with what the lord gave me lol) And in the Stripped book she was talking about how she thinks that its a good idea to get a spray tan, like why? lol doesn't she like her own body? But other then that the books are AWESOME!! emoticon
