Clean Eating Magazine Giveaway!

Can you say "YUM"?!? The burger on the cover of this month's Clean Eating magazine is unreal. 

I realize I am biased because this magazine (as well as the others by RKP) are my life these days, but I have to tell you this funny story about how much I L-O-V-E this cover...

I was at a grocery store in North Bay, Ontario on Saturday morning taking a stop over for groceries on my way up to Temagami, and I was struck by the drool-worthy deliciousness of this burger. And this was at 8am after having been on the road since 5am. Yikes!

I am so proud of this issue a) because of a ton of great recipes b) because I have a fun new spread in the mag and c) because this cover rocks! 


In fact, I am so proud of it I want to giveaway 5 issues of the magazine to a winner selected at random who leaves a comment about how they aim to bring their weight-loss or maintenance to the next level. 

Come on ladies & gents - share, share, share!

And come back tomorrow to find out who the winners are.

  2. I'm exercising consistently but not eating like I should. If I focus on clean eating, I know I will lose weight much faster.

  3. I am working on the food area to take my health/fitness to the next level. I am elimanating the processed foods in my house as they run out and replacing them with clean foods. I am also making sure I eat at home or bring food with me so I am not tempted to eat fast food.

  4. I am bringing my weight loss to the next level by being honest with myself and NOT beating myself up when something goes wrong. I will not give up on myself I can do this!

  5. I've been eating clean and using your cook books. they give me yummy ideas and it keeps me eating clean even when i have a sweet tooth. i have a great weight training program but i struggle with getting my butt to the gym. after a long day of working outside i'm pretty tired. so my goal is to drag my butt to the gym because even if i do a good 20 minute circuit its better than nothing. plus a good workout always boosts my energy level.

  6. I've been eating clean and lifting weights for the past two weeks! I'm using everything I learned from your books to turn any food favorite into a eat clean approved meal! Healthy and delicious! I'm down 3.8 pounds in the first two weeks :) To keep moving forward I'm increasing my weights and continually eating cleaner and cleaner!

  9. I'm not trying to lose weight, but I want to focus on eating clean 95% of the time (rather than the 80-85% of the time I'm doing now) to improve my energy levels even more and to take my body to the next level for marathon training (4.5 weeks to go!!)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I eat clean but my exercise has taken a back seat as my business grows and I tend to everyone's needs (except my own). I need to remember to put myself first and get to the gym several times a week.

  11. I recently transitioned to eating clean and LOVE it! I'm taking my weight loss to the next level by intensifying my strength training- moving beyond the "girly" machines and joining the guys in the free weights room! First time was this morning and whoa....I felt like a rockstar!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have been eating clean and pumping iron for 6 months now. :) best thing is that now my hubby is joining me!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Clean eating and fitness boot camp, but clean eating takes priority! Small protein + carb/fat every 3 hours has been giving me back control of my life!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Now that clean eating has become so integral to my life, I am working harder to be sure that I experiment with new clean foods, so there is never any excuse tonog eat clean. I'm also striving to bring clean eating to others!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am bringing my weight loss to the next level by reading the ingredients of the foods I purchase. I try to make sure the ingredient list is as short as possible and includes things I know are healthy.

  16. I am going to start heading to the gym again regularly.

  17. Coming to see YOU at the Can Fit Pro conference! {inspiration}

    More cardio. Heavier weights.
    Coming into my next year better than ever.

    A plan and achieveable goals.

  18. I plan on getting serious about my weight training! I've just been haphazardly using the weight machines, but I'm working on forming a detailed workout for each day...and following through with it!!

  19. After finally getting back to exercise after foot surgery 3 months ago and no running since last November due to the pain leading me to get surgery, I'm finally ready to ramp up my exercise and get back to running. A month before my pain I ran my first half marathon, and my goal is run another ASAP!

    ReplyDelete
  20. After turning 50, I realize there are a lot of things i cannot control. One thing for certain is, the cleaner I eat, the better I feel. I plan on adding lots of greens to my diet---"miracle grow" for the body. This year is all about me, eating well and aging backwards.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ok, too funny that you posted this because just YESTERDAY I messaged a FB friend to ask her if I should try this mag after I read about it on her blog!

    This summer I've finished up a health challenge with friends: lost 10lbs, drank 10c water daily, started exercising and now running 25k/week, signed up for a 1/2 marathon in Toronto on my birthday, started mountain biking and LOVING it, added hemp and protein powder to my diet (thanks to Tosca and Rachel...) and changed my sleep cycle so I'm up by 4:30 to exercise in the morning with friends.

    Next up is to do more lifting! And my fav: I'm seeing Tosca in September at an event!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. I became motivated to hire a personal trainer, clean out my cupboards and fridge and have been for the last few days clean eating. I have been using the eat clean diet books as a guide and devouring everything you have posted on FB and here as motivation to keep going.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Consistency is key for me. Which is why I have started keeping an exercise and food journal. This way I can hold myself accountable.

    ReplyDelete
  24. More walking, more exercising using hand and body weight (I'm on week 4 of Oxygen's 6 weeks to Push Up Perfection plan!) - more strictness in clean eating! School starts again for me on the 13th, which means long hours in front of the computer - so I have to be prepared with clean meals in the fridge and freezer and a plan to move my body throughout the day!

  25. My husband was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. When we met with the Dietician I was struck by the similarities between the diabetic diet suggestions and the eat clean diet. By taking my diet and exercise efforts to the next level and eating clean, I am supporting him and also modeling a healthy lifestyle for our 7 year old daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I started eating clean 3 weeks ago in hopes of losing the 10 pounds of extra weight that snuck up on me during the winter and move to another province in the summer. I am aiming to keep my fridge stocked full of great stuff like edamame dip, hummus, boiled eggs, fresh fruit and sliced up veggies. I think the key to clean eating is the organization aspect! It makes me feel super awesome when I'm on top of it and taking care of myself and my family in this way! Thanks for your unending inspiration, Tosca! I only wish I'd discovered you earlier!

  27. I have been in an eating slump for way too long. And this lifestyle has crossed my path too many times to continue to ignore it. It's time...
    Thank you for the inspiration through your magazine, your books, and your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yeah!! I would love this! I'm a huge clean eating fan and I'm always looking for new inspiration and ideas. I just finished all three of Tosca's clean eating books and I got so much inspiration and ideas from all of them!

    I've been so inspired by this movement, that I've entered my first bikini competition at the ripe o'l age of 42. Age is just a number, and I feel (and look) better than ever, based on the improvements I've made in my diet.

    Thanks Tosca, for being my rock star super hero!

  29. I am taking my weight loss to the next level by applying the eating clean methods to prepare for a figure competition in October! I can't wait!

  30. Tosca, I loved seeing the wedding photo of you and Bob! So beautiful. :) Lauren

  31. I'm taking my clean eating to the next level aiming to compete early next year! I love that clean eating extends into comp prep and while I'll be on basic foods it can still be full of flavour. Clean eating magazine has always been a treat to myself to find new ways to nourish and cherish my body!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Cleaner eating + more exercising (particularly cardio, my nemesis) should = increased weight loss...

    That's the plan, anyways...

    ReplyDelete
  33. May 31st was my last rendezvous with the "white evils" of sugar and white flour. With Tosca's inspiration, in the form of three of her books that I read back to back, I have made some serious dietary triumphs in addition to the weight and cardio training that have long been staples in my life (I find it much easier to stick to an exercise routine than to a clean eating regiment!) Things are going well in the eating department (got my breakfast oatmeal cooking under a plate as I type this!) but I would love to try Clean Eating magazine for some further inspiration. Thank you, Tosca, for all you do to make this world a healthier place!

  34. I am taking my ECD lifestyle to the next level by committing to work out at least 5 days a week with a variation of strength training and cardio. Since starting this plan an month ago, I just focused on the eating part and now I am ready to go full throttle! Thank you for changing how I look at food and teaching me how to treat and fuel my body!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I started eating clean almost a year ago, off and on, as I progressed in my new fit life style. Over the course of the year I learned so much more about myself and about my body then I thought was possible. Eating Clean has changed both my outside and inside. For the past 6 months, I have started to take my eating clean and fitness to a new level. I want to push past my comfort zone and take my body and mind to a place they have never been. The clean eating magazine sure would make that easier and provide me with new ways to enjoy my food on my journey! Pick me Tosca, Pick me!!!

  36. Clean Eating (your books and the magazine) kick-started my new way of living. After learning I was also celiac and had a severe dairy intolerance I was pleased to see that CE is so versatile that going gluten and dairy free is totally feasible. I can continue on this wonderful plan with some adjustments to support my dietary needs.

  37. After 4 children in 3 years (yep there are twins in there) it is more important to me than ever to set the stage for my children's health. I do fitness videos at home and my kids run around and "workout" too! :)

  38. I plan to by preparing more of my meals ahead of time on the weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've been taking Barre Amped classes 3-4 times a week and use Clean Eating Magazine and the Eat Clean Diet to plan and prepare meals. I'm amazed at how much better emotionally eating right and exercising. The physical benefits are not bad as well :-)

    Taking things to the next level ~ I want to train as a dancer. I'm 36 so that's a big deal. It's been a lifelong dream, so as soon as I get my weight to a healthy level I'm going for it!

    ReplyDelete
  40. My two year old so just asked me why I was exercising. "So I can be strong" was my answer. Eating clean is the other part of the equation. Clean Eating + Exercise = strong, healthy mama.

    ReplyDelete
  41. With the 80-20 relationship between food and fitness, Clean Eating is essential to daily life and well being! Thanks Tosca, for helping to bring this concept to the forefront!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am making progress in the kitchen with preparing more of our meals but I need to add more exercise to lose the weight I need to lose.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm taking it to the next level by pushing myself outside the box more. I need to keep changing up my work outs so they keep me challenged and changing!!

  44. Today is my 48th birthday, I've been eating clean since May and have lost 14 pounds and 12 inches by combining your diet with an exercise routine. Thank you for providing the tools to create a healtier me and a huge thank you to my friend Kathleen who turned me on to your book. I am 6 lbs from my first goal of losing 20 lbs!

  45. Snacks are usually my biggest problem, so I plan to prepare more in-between small meals in advance. This way, there is no reason to give in to the cravings. :)

  46. I'm on day 3 of Eat Clean after dabbling in it for a couple of weeks. I feel great! So much more energy! Also starting some personal training and feeling really excited about seeing some physical changes!

  47. I am loving your eat clean, and oxygen magazine, just learned I have to do weight training for my bones, so I have really dug in to the magaizines, I keep them all and take them to the gym with me. Keep up the good work! debbie

  51. I too was drooling over this cover in my supermarket! I am a 50-something that is trying to learn the clean-eating/exercise way of life! I would enjoy the magazine immensely!! As the kids say Tosca, You Rock! You are an inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have read many of your books. I love them!! Now it is time for me to put everything in action so I can start losing the weight :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I am just getting started on my journey (again, of course) to finally becoming healthy. I am currently reading your book and it's definitely been an inspiration to me. I used to be a very good athlete and played so many sports and right now, I just want to get back in shape and feel healthy again. I am hoping to be able to start this journey by learning to eat clean and healthy, once and for all.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am eating clean-ish. I am working on ignoring my stress and doing physical activity instead of the 'go to food' from my past. I have 3 of your cookbooks and really took them to heart this past May long weekend and I've lost 12 pounds so far. I'm also moving to a community that encourages physical activity. Therefore I've removed some of my previous excuses. I understand today is the day, the only day I've got and I'm making them count.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm exercising daily and eating clean for about two and a half months now, I already shed some weight but want to lose more so I'm thinking about hirering a personal trainer to get my fitness and weight loss up a notch!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have a lot of weight to lose but have already gotten off 30 pounds. I am stuck and need to get back in the game. This means that I pulled out my Tosca books and starting reading. I am committing today to eat clean and be more healthy.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I am making sure I focus on WATER and fruits and lots of veggies at every meal. I LOVE veggies but I usually skip them just because they take longer to prep. Having inspiring recipes helps me put the time in.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I am doing like many others here; committing to a clean mentality followed by clean eating and rewarding myself with exercise.
    I am aiming to keep increasing my weights and keep up all of my hard work! :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I have dug out my bread machine and have started making my own healthy spelt, or whole wheat breads. We only shop the outside isles in the grocery store and try not to buy processed foods. We try to buy freshe veggies, honey from our local farmers market and grow as much veggies as we can in our small garden. We take the dog for walks several times a day, go bike riding and I have volunteered at our local Y

  60. Over the last two years I have lost 40 lbs eating clean and lifting weights. I'm pretty happy with where I am but would love to lose 5 more lbs. Taking eating clean to the next level for me is trying to convince everyone I know to do it. I tell everyone if you just give it a week you will feel the changes in your body. My kids even enjoy eating clean which makes this mom very proud. I would love to try out your magazine and hopefully talk my husband into letting me order another magazine :o) Love you Tosca.

  61. I am trying to eat clean.. not always easy.. i tend to fall off the wagon a lot!! But I just have to get back on.. I was back to the gym last night after a 2 week hiatus.. felt soooo good to be back :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Clean eating is a must and now I have been combining yoga with my cardio. It is a great combination, and makes my whole body feel amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I just moved and there's a ton of farmer's markets in the area. Am starting to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables for my health and to set a good example to my toddler.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I've (for the most part) kicked junk/fake food to the curb and become significantly more active; the thing now seems to be continued and increased vigilance on the food front to make sure that I'm eating for the right (non-emotional) reasons by decreasing portion size and increasing meal frequency. 30lbs down, 50lbs to go. :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. We have made it a family affair by adding evening walks and joint cooking of healtier foods

  67. I have reached my goal weight and for now I am into the maintanence phase, which sometimes is the hard part! I've been trying to continue to eat clean and make the right food choices and committing to exercise 5 days a week to continue toning and strengthening my body.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I started eating clean because of food allergies and it just made sense to me. Now I need to get my body back into the shape it was before I got sick. I can't wait to see what the info in the magazine is!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Well I have lost more than 50 lbs over the past three years (that included an injury that required surgery and rehab). While the exercise part comes easily...the clean eating part doesn't always so I have turned to Clean Eating to help me to get that part of my life under control...in addition I have ramped up the cardio and I am in the gym now about five (5) days a week...Thanks Tosca and RKP...you both have inspired me to be the best that I can be as I approach 47.

  70. I just signed up for an early morning 8 week fitness program starting next week.... and I'm a student living at a college! Must be my squeaky clean diet that gives me all this energy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I am taking it to the next level by training for my first sub 2 hour half marathon! I've ran 2 halfs before but more for fun. This time around, I am running for time and have trained extremely hard these last 7 weeks (3 more weeks until the race!). Also, I've incorporated more plant based protein in my diet and cut back on the red meat!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Thinking about how food is fuel and how much better I'd feel if I consistently eat what man didn't make...but nature did! It can't be a short-term fix, but a lifelong commitment to eating better to make yourself feel it's best. An occasional "cheat" is fine as long as it's occasional!

  73. I have been eating clean for several months now and loving it. Maria, who you did a feature on not to long ago, is my coach and has been pushing my weight loss and clean eating to the next level. By cooking clean and simple foods at home and less eating out, working out more often and adding family walks i have been able to drop my first 15 pounds. I have even started my own facebook page to help hold myself more accountable to clean eating and my weight loss journey.

  74. ooo, the magazine subscription would help with a nice start to eating clean. ^____^

  75. I've got the exercise part down, I've started running, lifting weights and doing yoga. All of which I've come to love and crave doing. But I've relized if I don't pay attention to my eating habits I can ruin my efforts. I've committed to myself that I am going to focus on eating clean to help move me to the next level. These magizines would be oh so helpful! Thank you for the opportunity to win them!

  76. I am getting back in the gym as soon as my surgeon releases me.

  77. I just had surgery so since I can't workout I'm working on researching healthy foods and recipes. I struggle losing weight due to a tumor on my pituitary gland and I really need to clean up my diet. I do well exercising, but my food choices could use some help.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I've lost 90lbs on my own but with Clean Eating and working out I'm taking charge of how I fuel my body for getting to my goal and getting the body I want. I love that I can feed my family fantastic meals I find in the magazine and know they're eating healthy.

  82. I have been eating clean since February 13 of this year. My amazing trainer turned me on to the program to help me reach my goals. I started with your first cookbook and have cooked my way through and back to being healthy. I have made clean eating a life style and not just a diet. It is simply a way of life for me now. I have now lost 34 pounds, lost 13% body fat, 45 total inches over entire body, and 4 dress sizes. I'm still going strong with hard work in the gym, strict clean eating, and motivation. Here's to an amazing long life!

  84. I am taking my weight loss to the next level by trying new foods and recipes. I have lost 35 pounds so far and have 20 more to go.

  87. I just discovered your magazine and it has gotten me inspired to really "CLEAN" up my act again. The most exciting part is that I will be using Clean Eating recipes with a small group of women committed to their own health and wellness as well as the health and wellness of their families! It will be the start of long and healthy habits for a multitude of people.
    I have been slacking some with back to back vacations and I can't wait to get going with this. I am going to lose that 10 pounds with CLEAN and great exercise. Thanks for being such an inspiration and incredibly practical too!

  88. I have currently loss 39 pounds by changing my diet and exercising over the past 5 mths :) My new goal is eating clean, strictly!! I believe this will bring my body to the next level of fitness as I am trying to tone more and flatten out my bloated tummy.

  90. Can you get your magazine in Canada? I look for it every time I am in stores but can never find it. I really like your book and am slowing introducing new stuff all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I am incorporating more vegetables, and even tried your recipe for sautéed kale! I need to continue eating more veggies, less carb snacks, and to drink my water! I got last months's issue of Clean Eating from the store, and have used several recipes - even my husband liked them! I am doing well lifting weights and getting in my cardio and have lost several inches this summer.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I am still in the process of getting my butt in gear when it comes to eating clean and fitness. I realize now after losing twenty pounds that I have to take a step back and really analyze where I'm going wrong so have decided that alcohol now has to be cut out as well as monitoring my salt intake.
    I need to eat more often too as I tend to skip meals.
    Oh and need to learn that clean eating is the tastiest eating!! :))

    ReplyDelete
  93. I took it to the next level 8 weeks ago by doing what I call "simple it up" in my life and adapting the following rules:
    *I set a specific goal of what I wanted to accomplish, and look like, in 12 weeks. Another goal will follow for sure.:)
    *I started weight lifting and working with a personal trainer....the BEST thing I have ever done to push myself.
    *When I put something in my mouth I ask the question....Is this nourishing my body or harming it?

  94. I am a nurse, and I always ensure that I have my extra clean foods and snacks stored in an extra cooler in the fridge for those extra hungry nights/evenings!! When not at work, i carry around my 2L metal klean kanteen water bottle with ice lemon water...so refreshing

    ReplyDelete
  95. Eating clean is exactly what my MD had prescribed!
    It's not a weight issue in my case, it's a life issue!
    Thank you sweet Tosca!
    I'm a huge fan ever since my first Oxygen subscription almost 10 years ago!

  96. I love the Clean Eating lifestyle. I'll admit that I'm in transition and there are some habits that are taking more effort than others to overcome, but overall, I feel free for the first time. I have to say, too, that my family has been very supportive of my efforts to transform the family eating style and have given almost all the recipes I've tried two thumbs up. Keep up the great work!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I need more clean eating recipe ideas to continue on my clean eating path. I already strength train 3 days a week, yoga 1 day a week, and I walk a lot. I will also increase my cardio output by adding jogging to my routine.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I've been eating clean for the past year and I love it. I went from very low carb eating (low carb but high fat) to clean eating and I'm amazed at all of the different foods I get to eat (and how much I consume in a day!) I feel so fit and healthy and am in the best shape of my life (at 38 years old!) Now I just want to work on my "treat meals"... and make them a little more clean as well!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Being a Sister in Iron and never wanting to let my fears overcome me, I have been competing in triathlons for the first time this year! I am currently leading my series! Daily positive messages from Tosca along with Clean Eating has helped me maintain my edge and get me in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!! Push those fears aside and live!! Thanks Tosca

  104. Stepping up my weight loss and fitness by training for my very 1st 5K run! Also, have started faithfully logging my food and it is making all the difference in the world! Down 25lbs and can't wait to shed the next 25lbs! Would love a copy of this yummilicious looking eat clean mag!

  105. I had an epiphany the other day and realized that I'm not getting any younger, and it's time to get serious! By eating a clean diet, switching from beer to wine (big difference!), upping my cardio & weights, along with more pilates, I'm already seeing a huge change and I'm loving it!

  107. I've been taking Kundalini yoga classes regularly and have seen muscle definition in my calves for the first time in my life! All of my muscles are getting stronger as well. My eating however hasn't been as clean as it should (summer means ice cream:*. While I'm not really over weight, I do have a bit of extra weight in the belly. I am going to start focusing on cleaning up my and my family's diets to really see an improvement in my stomach. And as my husband needs to lose weight as well to help with a bad back and sciatica, it will benefit him as well.

  108. Stay at home mother of two kids, I started marathon training but found myself always tired so I added body pump to increase muscle strength, I have been going strong since March. Still no weight lose very discouraging, a friend of mine mother of four told me about Tosca Reno "clean eating" and ow she got her body back after following her guidelines. My family has been eating clean for three weeks and we feel amazing, even my husband loves it. Thank you for the energy to keep up with my 4 year old and 9 month old.

  110. Almost 9 months ago I was given a stack of my sisters old oxygen magazines, since having my second daughter and wanting to get back to the gym... I learned that eating is the most important thing I could do to help lose the weight. I had never imagined all that I would learn once I bought and read two eating clean diet books! I'm confident with my choices for my family, fueling ourselves with the right food to live healthy active lives. I would love to have an opportunity to learn more with the rating clean magazine and maybe help me to show others(via coffe table and passing along to others) what eating clean is and how amazing it is!

  111. I just made your delicious Carribbean chicken last night for dinner, along with a quinoa salad that was nothing but CLEAN ingredients! I'm teaching my boyfriend all about eating clean and getting our two butts outdoors - rollerblading and trail hiking all in one day this past Sunday! And no more chocolate snack bar at the office - I have Ryvita at my desk and Finncrisps (I'm Finn, what can I say) and make my own hummus dips which I like to jazz up with curry one day and home-roasted garlic the next.

  112. It's unfortunate to say that bringing my weight loss to the next level is actually by starting over. In 2009, I lost 55 pounds and since then have gotten married for the 2nd time and put my family's needs before my own and regained not only the 55 pounds but another 15 on top of that. I plan to start by decreasing my diet soda to only 1 a week, incorporate more fruits and veggies and get active 5-6 days a week. Once I get started with those few things, the rest of the clean eating and maintaining an active lifestyle will fall in place. Love your books and magazine columns!

  113. I plan to take my weight loss to the next level by staying true and accountable to myself. I have the knowledge of good nutrition and exercise, now I just need to allow myself to use this knowledge.

  114. I'm excited to think I am on the last phase of getting healthy. I started my journey in 2009 by going to Weight Watchers and I lost 30lbs. I maintained my weight for a year and decided it was time to start working out. I did spin and boot camp classes but fell off the wagon at Christmas. Slowly the weight started to creep back on. My friend and I joined CrossFit in April and it has really opened my eyes to what I should be doing, physically and nutrition-wise. I cut out soda completely and I bought your book Eat Clean Recharged last week! I am excited to start fueling my body instead of eating junk food. I'm scared to cut out sugar (I love my coffee in the morning!) but I know it will be worth it in the long run.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I never worked out a day in my life and in April started a boot camp and it started making me feel so awesome and in return I wanted to eat right and with the help of boot camp your blog, Facebook page and website I have changed my life completely, I plan on continuing this way and exploring more recipes ect, I am already down to 18% body fat and looking forward to my first competition in October! Thank you for helping in changing my life! I'm migraine and neck spasm free now!

  117. As a mom of 3 (ages 9, 7 & 3) I feel learning how to eat clean would be so beneficial for all of us. GEtting us started on the right foot EVERY morning and ensuring that they will have a great day at school, my husband & I at work.
    Working out as a family---tag, soccer, bike rides--have become such the norm for us and I just want us to be truly healthy!
    Thanks for providing such great tools and ideas in your books and cookbooks!

  118. Consistency and balance are my current goals. I'm working on a plan I can commit to for the long haul, without my weight yo-yoing up and down. I am going for slow and steady weight loss over the next three months by limiting, but not eliminating, treats and increasing my weightlifting. I've been training for a half marathon with minimal weights and am looking forward to the change of pace.

  119. In search of a weight loss quick fix I discovered Tosca's Clean Eating books. But with the knowledge I gained from them I discovered my passion for HEALTHY EATING, not low fat eating.

  124. Consistency in my Clean Food Eating is what I need. I work out consistently, and seriously need to tackle the consistency of a good diet. I am good one week, and then bad another. I pick up Clean Eating as often as I can afford in the budget....I love it! Keep up the good work.

  125. I've been eating clean for two months now and just got a trainer. I feel inspired and much happier (those hormones are much better). The big thing I'm working on now is removing people and situations from my life that arent helping me attain my goals - the most difficult thing for me.

  129. I am two months into eating and drinking clean. I set aside two hours (or more) a week to plan the week out for food for myself and family. My husband has lost at least 10 lbs and we both are starting to see more lean body parts. Slow and Steady is what I tell myself. It took me 30 years of eating horrible so I need to put the into perspective of my clean, health, happy goals. Thank you for being an inspiration!!

  131. I've been eating clean and working out consistently for 10 weeks. I feel great! My husband says he's proud supports me on this lifestyle change. He also improved his eating habits so I can say he's on the right path. My plan is to extend this healthy lifestyle to my two daughters (14 and 6). Because, to be honest they eat pretty healthy, but not the way I want. So my goal is to be a good influence for my girls that way they can adopt a healthy lifestyle and not suffer in their future all the problems I had in the past.

  136. I decided to change my life and health about a month ago. I have started training, but am having a hard time with nutrition. I tend not to eat enough rather than make bad choices.

  138. Hi Tosca, I am a newbie to your eating clean diet. I found your book at the library and have started taking some notes about how to proceed with living clean. I will be joining a gym that has just recently opened near by and I am so ready to shed all this weight and feel better. I need to lose about70 pounds, so I have a long journey ahead. I am ready to go and stick to it. I stopped smoking over a year ago, and now my weight is my only obstacle left to conquer. I don't want to just lose, but I want a completely new and healthy lifestyle. This diet will definately suit my needs. Wish me luck!!! Melissa Woulfe

  139. Hi Tosca, I would love to have a copy! I started my weight loss goal last year, and am down 40 lbs, but still have about 15 lbs to go. I was eating healthier but, not totally clean. I've been stuck at a plateau now for a few months and I would love to lose the last of these stuborn pounds and I know clean eating along with the exercise that I do would do the trick and I know your magazine would be a perfect start!!

  140. I've always exercised and eaten fairly healthfully, but at this shy of 45 years old, I find myself in perimenopause and needing to revamp some things. I'm taking it to the next level by increasing the length of my workouts and cleaning up my diet even further. I've struck added sugars and have increased my veggie and protein intake. It's making all the difference in the world with my perimeno symptoms.

  142. I love clean eating magazine as well as you eat clean diet books. They've helped me personally get on the right track as well as given me great resources to give my personal training clients. Right now, as we head back into the school year, I'm looking at ways to simplify my clean eating and cooking. For example, I will be pre-cooking my proteins and grains on Sundays for the entire week, including lunch packing so that we don't have an excuse to grab unhealthy food. In addition, I will be using my brand new Tupperware microsteamer to save time by steaming my veggies in the microwave. I'm super excited and ready to go! Thanks for the motivation!

  143. Hi Tosca, I've lost and maintained over an 80 pound weight loss since 2008. I purchased your first book and have followed the principles of clean eating to obtain this goal. Maintaining is harder than losing. Your body fatigues from exercise and I tend to eat a lot of the same foods because I know "they work" to keep my weight stable. Although I've maintained this lifestyle it's still a struggle. My new goals right now are to change my exercise regime, trying new types of exercise as well I really need to add variety to my diet. Thanks for making exercise and eating healthy easier with all your books, recipes and knowledge. As a registered nurse in a busy hospital I continue to be as healthy and clean as I can and I know my patients and colleges look up to me for this. I never want to be on the receiving end of medications to maintain my life, I believe nutrition becomes us :)

  144. Hi Tosca,

    I think the best thing anyone can do, and what I'm doing, is keeping a food journal to watch where I can make improvements. It's a good way to keep on track and manage the amount of nutrients I need, and weed out those calories I don't.

    ReplyDelete
  145. I pack my meals and snacks so I have healthy choices to choose from at work to keep me on track. I also lift weights 4 to 5 days a week and have incorporated sprints several days a week at the gym. It also helps to have healthy recipes from the magazines and books when making my shopping list, it takes out the guess work. Thank you for all of your helpful tips and info!

  146. I'm taking it to the next level by taking my loved ones with me! For the last year my mother has been fighting an aggressive breast cancer. We would spend the long hours of her chemo treatments thumbing through Clean Eating magazine and choosing recipes we'd make when she was better and got her appetite back. Now that she's feeling more like herself I'm holding her to it, teaching her more and more about the Clean Eating principles that I learned from Tosca's books, sharing meal plans, recipes and local produce when we find it. The result is going to be a healthier mother-daughter duo!

Thanks Tosca for being such an inspiration!!

  152. My husband and I have made a commitment to be the best role models we can be for our three young boys. We joined a family gym and only eat clean. The boys are growing up knowing the value in leading a healthy and active life and the best part about it is that we are all doing it together. I have to admit that once I bought the first CE magazine (over a year ago now) I preach to everyone that will listen that CE is the way to live. We are more balanced, have more energy and generally get less sick by maintaining this lifestyle!! Thanks for all of your help in this journey!!

  156. The last 4 years I have focus on my mental health. I am not overweight and exercise three days a week. Now that I am in my mid-forties it is time to focus on the physical health to avoid the additional pounds and inches that come with age. Eating clean will help me achieve the level of health desired for better health in my fifties and sixties.

    Thanks Lady T!!!

  158. Although I am trying to eat clean, my next big step is making sure I drink enough water. It's pretty easy for me to go a whole day and only drink a few glasses. Not enough for sure! My goal is to remember to pack, along with all my other eat clean goodies, plenty of water for me to drink at work and school, so I won't have any excuse not to drink lots of water!

  159. I don't have any great life changing inspiring story to tell as I have been blessed with a great mum who brought me up to enjoy veggies but together have improved over the years in many ways but my challenge is influencing my husband who was raised on a typical British diet & not very clean as stodgy. It's hard to maintain when he wants to eat creamy sauces & pasta bakes but getting there! That's my next step, hubby on clean eating without realising he is actually clean eating ;-) So many helpful alternatives on this site. Shame UK don't have this magazine. Missing out!

  161. I have always been excellent at working out- I love it. I often use beachbody programs, which have really started emphasizing clean eating. I came across the blog of a beachbody coach who was successful from clean eating and working out. It just all started to make sense after reading some of her recipes and meal plans. I borrowed "The Clean-Eating Diet- Recharged" from the library and have been noticing a shift in my thinking (and desire) for food. After a life of struggling with my weight and trying every crazy fad diet without a lot of success, my plan is to enjoy real food, the way it is meant to be eaten- simply and naturally. I don't really see this as a diet, but more of a shift in how I buy and use foods. I'm so excited to see the results after this new change combined with this new round of exercise. Best of all, I can teach my 1-year-old daughter these healthy habits. She already loves veggies- imagine that!

  162. My husband and I have been clean eating for 3 weeks now, and the difference in how we feel is amazing by just getting rid of processed foods! He is diabetic and his sugar levels are controlled and his insulin requirements have dropped, his doctor will be so proud! We have each lost nearly 6 lbs in the process and feel so energized! Its been much easier being on vacation, but back to work tomorrow will be a challenge, especially for my husband who works shift work. We have our workouts written out in books, so we know exactly what we are doing each day and can track it, making it simple for us. Last week I reorganized the home gym and our 3 teenage boys have been also using it on a regular basis! Next step, preparing our lunches for the week on Sunday...which I just finished! Next weekend is my 42nd birthday and my husbands 41st birthday...we are celebrating with that amazing burger from my newly acquired clean eating magazine! Following your site has given us motivation to feel healthier and live life to the fullest...thank you thank you THANK YOU!!

  164. If losing weight is your goal, then make this a priority that you focus on completely. This means you'll have to arrange your schedule to be sure you have time to get proper sleep, nutrition, and exercise. In cruisecontroldiet.com site I found a very potent and effective to achieve your ideal body. They offer a simple technique but gives a tremendous effect.
