    I purchased the original _Eat-Clean Diet_ book when it came out a few years ago, and used the principles in it to lose sixteen pounds (two dress sizes). Recently, I’ve been a little more lax in my eating, so I purchased this book last week to help motivate me to get back on track with my eating for the new year.

    Before purchasing this newer edition, I was worried that it would be very similar to the first version of the book, but, as Reno explains, it contains over 100 pages of new text. While there are some chapters that are similar in both books (like chapters on the importance of drinking water and eating breakfast), there are a lot of new ideas. If you are trying to decide whether to purchase the older, original edition of this book or this one, I would recommend buying this one since it contains more recent information about nutritional studies. If, like me, you already own the original book, I think you’ll still find the ideas in here useful and inspirational.

    I find Reno to be very motivating, and, if you’re struggling to lose weight, you will probably find her books really helpful. The idea behind clean eating is that you eat foods that are as close to their natural state as possible, without adding in extra sugar, chemicals, etc. Eating six meals a day ensures that you never go hungry, and you don’t have to worry about calorie counting.

    Another great feature of this book is that she includes a vegan meal plan in it. The first edition was very centered around meat, which made it difficult for me (as a lacto-ovo vegetarian) to see how I could incorporate all of her suggestions since I wasn’t about to gnaw on a chicken breast as my morning snack.

    Reno also focuses much more in this edition on the environmental effects that our food choices have, citing Michael Pollan’s work and the principles of films like _Food, Inc._. Since I am concerned with environmental issues, I really liked this new focus on eating locally and sustainably.

    This book also contains 50 new recipes. I have not tried any of them yet, but will be sure to update my review after I have tried a few. The inclusion of quite a few vegetarian recipes is another nice feature.

    I first discovered Reno in _Oxygen_ fitness magazine, where she is a monthly columnist, and last year was happy to see that Robert Kennedy Publishing (the group that publishes Reno’s book and _Oxygen_) began a new magazine called _Clean Eating_. If you want even more seasonal, healthy recipes and nutrition tips, I definitely recommend subscribing to it. Just be warned, however, that it contains a lot of ads promoting Reno’s books — to an annoying degree. If you can look past those ads, it makes a nice addition to a clean-eating lifestyle.

    UPDATE ON 3/1/10: I’ve made a few of the recipes, and all of them have turned out to be really good! In my original review, I accidentally said that the book has over 15 new recipes, but it actually has 50 new ones. If you have the original version of this, you definitely don’t *need* this newer version, but the updates and success stories make it a nice addition to my collection of health books.

    I LOVE THIS BOOK. It is beautiful and informative, plus inspirational. This has to be the most gorgeous “diet” book there is. It looks like a magazine (no surprise there though!) and has luscious food pictures, beautiful beach, ocean, and lifestyle photos. It is easy to read, with short chunks of concise information. This is not a book about diet only, it is more like a guide to a happy, healthy life. It is the first one of Tosca Reno’s books that I have bought and I am so very happy with it. Thanks Tosca!!!

  3. As an owner of all Tosca’s “Eat Clean” books, this is one of the best! Even if you have the other books buy this one…Tosca has definitely added more information to it which makes the purchase worthwhile. I am not a big meat eater so I was happy to see that she added meal plans for vegans/vegetarians. This book has plenty of glossy photos that make it a treat to read…its easy to understand and her plan really does work for ANYONE. I dont know why it is titled a ‘diet’ becuz you dont feel deprived in the least~Eating clean is a lifestyle.

  4. This is one of Tosca’s better books because it has tons of info, tips and inspiration on the Eat-Clean Diet philosophy. It is full of “eye candy” with striking photos on nearly every page of the thick glossy paper. Sprinkled throughout are “Dear Tosca” letters from readers with inspiring testimonials, as well as small boxes of tip items. There are also numerous info-boxes with a wide variety of topics such as “Common Foods and Fiber Counts,” “My Clean Oats and What I Put on Them,” “Making Water Better,” and “Solutions for a Busy Day.”

    We also get to read Tosca’s story, sprinkled throughout the book. She knows what it is like to be fat (weighed 204 pounds at one time!). “I am a normal woman with everyday issues, just like everyone else, and for a long time, I carried excess weight, too.” She encourages us, “There is infinite joy to be had in living life with a healthful, lean physique” and tells us we are in good company because stars like Angelina Jolie use the clean diet approach (according to tabloids).

    There are 17 chapters, and each one is color coded at the bottom right hand corner for ease of flipping through the chapters. At the beginning of the book we learn the Eat-Clean principles, which are also summarized neatly on one page, and include for example eating six meals a day and combining lean protein with complex carbs at each mini-meal. We also learn what to expect, the basics of metabolism, and the power of water (I just wish she had told us what kind is best–distilled? Filtered? Spring?).

    The middle chapters deal with getting inspired, shopping clean, eating clean while traveling and in social situations (even includes a chart for fast food dining), and how to exercise. The latter chapters involve cellulite, loose skin and sags (one entire chapter on that!), longevity, superfoods, meal plans and grocery lists. Gluten-free and vegan meal plans are included. Some of the superfoods include game meat, coconut, seafood, chia seeds, and kefir. She explains how you can benefit from 5 cents a day worth of flaxseeds.

    Finally, there are 50 new recipes with mouth-watering photos for nearly all of them. These are divided into breakfast, starters, salads, soups/stews, proteins, complete meals and desserts. The desserts include a couple of biscotti recipes that look like something from Starbuck’s, as well as chocolate covered bananas. And though I am a raw fooder, I have to admit that “picante frittata” looks mighty tempting! Each recipe has nutritional info per serving, number of servings, prep time and cooking time. After that is a chapter on frequently asked question and answers, and one with the eat-clean diet at a glance.

    This is a great book for inspiration, education and reference. Not to mention the recipes!

    After reading this book I have to say I was seriously disappointed.

    I read scads of news articles either online or from my fitness magazines & there is hardly a thing in this book I didn’t already know before.

    It’s a no brainer: Stay away from sugar. Eat orgainic fruits, veggies, & protein 5 to 6 times a day either for a main meal or a snack. Only drink water & limited dairy & last but not least exercise. DUH!

    It’s fairly well written & the design layout is very nice. If you really don’t know anything about eating well for yourself this could help you start off, but there is hardly a thing in here you can’t easily find on the net.

    Try […]. I find many useful tips here & best of all its free.
