Set Your “Inner Fit Girl” Free with Eating Clean

I met the vibrant Melissa Toler at this year's Arnold. She was glowing and gorgeous & I just had to ask her guest blog for us. I wanted all of you to hear her story because it is so familiar - fad diets, not lifting weights, hours on the treadmill. But she figured it out with the help of The Eat-Clean Diet and went on to achieve the beautiful physique she was always meant to have. Get inspired!

When I tell people that I’m a Figure competitor, they usually ask, “How many hours do you spend in the gym?” I love the look on people’s faces when I tell them I’m rarely in the gym for more than an hour.  

Some don’t believe me when I say that what I eat is far more important the time I spend working out. 

Before I began my own fitness journey a year ago, I wouldn’t have believed it either.  I always thought that I could eat whatever I wanted as long as I spent hours on the treadmill or the elliptical.  I avoided lifting heavy weights because I didn’t want to get “bulky”. The myriad of confusing and misleading information about how to get fit and stay fit caused me to fall victim to fad diets, all of which produced results early on, but were never sustainable.  I knew there was an athletic, toned body underneath all those layers of fat, but would I ever see it?

Years of drastic weight fluctuations and declining self-confidence put me on a quest for a permanent solution to the stubborn chub that had taken over my body.  I always thought having a strong, healthy body was temporary and difficult to achieve.  That is, until I discovered the original Eat-Clean Diet book in my local bookstore. I was fascinated by Tosca’s personal journey and no-nonsense approach to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  This is what I had been searching for!

Not long after I discovered Eating Clean, I began training with online fitness coach, Cathy Savage, who whipped me into shape for my first Figure competition last September.

My “Inner Fit Girl” is free and she’s not going anywhere!

I’d love to hear how you’ve unleashed your “Inner Fit Girl”!


  1. This is amazing! Love stories like this!

  2. So inspirational! Everyone should be anxious to find their inner fit girl!

  3. It's so exciting when dreams are realized. Not sure I could even dream of being in a bikini, let alone stage.

    One dream coming true - - going to meet Tosca at an event in September with my friend, another fan!!!!! Can't wait!

  4. Congratulations on your success. Your story is very inspiring.
