eating clean.

As I have mentioned, at BookExpo America in NYC last week I got to meet a lot of really great authors, one of them was Tosco Reno. Many of you may have already heard of her and her extremely popular Eat-Clean Diet system. For those of you who have, she is just as beautiful in person as she is in the pictures that are in her The Eat-Clean Diet Recharged! book.

Losing weight is very mental. In Tosco's book you learn about the many ways that eating clean helps your body BESIDES just making it slim. If you think about it that way, it could be easier to stick to this lifestyle. Eating clean helps your skin, hair and teeth. Those three things are extremely important to us in our appearance whether we are skinny or not. It also helps make your eyes healthy, including the dark circles and bags and even the color.

The Eat-Clean Diet Recharged! shows you how to start the process of eating clean. What to buy, what to eat, what to drink, and even how to keep up your lifestyle change in social situations and while traveling. Tosco also gives us a program so that we know when to eat to best fuel our metabolisms. It also has great recipe ideas for those of you who have a hard time creating your own meals. The book even has testimonials and questions to Tosco from actual readers. Summer is already here, now is the perfect time to make the change to become healthy.

Social situations are the hardest part of staying healthy. I am a very social person, I like to drink, I like to go out to eat with my friends, and when I am trying to lose weight I feel as if I can't even be around people who have unhealthy eating habits. There has to be a way to maintain relationships AND eat clean. Learn to control yourself, or incorporate what you have learned into your social life and be a good influence on your friends and family. Go for walks, rent kayaks or paddle boats, play a sport or take a Pilate's class. Tosco mentioned in her book that she turns a birthday party's focus away from the food and on to the activity. Have a bowling, swimming or roller blading birthday party for your kids. There are many ways to be social and stay fit.
