Publisher's Summary

With her Eat-Clean Diet, Tosca Reno went from being overwhelmed and overweight to modeling a bikini, but her 70-pound weight loss and body transformation didn't happen overnight; even Tosca needed a simple approach, a place to begin. Now she reveals her secrets. Start now with The Start Here Diet!
Tosca knows what it's like to feel ashamed of your body. At her heaviest, she hid behind bulky clothes and rarely had her picture taken. Then she started making slight adjustments - small changes that brought about big results. In this exciting book, she shares the three easy-to-follow steps that helped her get her life back on track:
Step 1: Dive Inward. Identify the emotional triggers for your overeating, the self-defeating "self-talk" and the underlying reason why you really want to shed the pounds. Tosca will help you overcome these internal barriers in a completely unique, accessible way.
Step 2: Uncover Your Hidden Foods. Do you have a food you think you just can't live without? Or something you eat mindlessly and often? These are your "hidden foods", and they are sabotaging your best efforts to lose weight and keep it off. Through Tosca's transformative process, you will once and for all identify the empty-calorie foods that have added extra pounds and replace them with nutritious foods you can enjoy without weight gain.
Part 3: Move a Little! Simply choose from Tosca's list of 50 basic movements to strengthen, tone, and improve your health. Moving a little for even 15 minutes a day will help reshape your body and put you on a path to weight-loss success.
Like a good friend and trusted mentor, Tosca will show you how to believe in yourself again, forgive yourself, and imagine a life of joy you thought was out of reach.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the personal stories and the recipes.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was - while I was walking. I just needed the inspiration.

Any additional comments?

I have several of her books and a cookbook. What was inspirational for me was that I could listen to this while being active so it was motivating me to continue. The informational isn't new and it's common sense, but if you need that little serves as a little voice of encouragement.

What disappointed you about The Start Here Diet?

Please excuse the pun. But this needs a bit of fattening up. It starts well (except for the name-dropping, please spare me), but then, just when you expect it to really get going the book ends. Just like that. This is not worth your money.
