Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's about time! How refreshing to pick up a book on changing your relationship with both yourself and food!  This book is like having your own psychologist helping you through everything from cravings to emotions to celebrations.  Thank you Tosca for your gentle introspective approach to looking at ourselves from deep within to looking at our food choices.  Excellent book.  I'd recommend to everyone trying to understand weight loss/gain while learning more about yourself than you ever thought possible. Thanks Tosca!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of food for thought 3.5/5 bWell, we're already into the second month of 2014. Did you make resolutions for this year? Were they health related? And how's that going? Personally I don't like the word resolution - I like the word change instead. And yes, I did start making some changes. I've had Tosca Reno's newest book - The Start Here Diet - for a month now. It's taken me that long to get to the final pages. Not because I haven't enjoyed it, but because I've been reading some chapters over and over again before I move on the next section. Reno gives us much more than a diet plan or a list of foods to eat. Her own journey is detailed in the introduction. Reno (mom to four) lost seventy pounds after age forty and shares her knowledge in this book. "I hope that sharing my experience and my journey to a healthy weight will inspire you to travel the same road - the road to happiness with the way you look and feel..." From the first pages, she asks the reader to take a real look at why they overeat. In depth, personal and perhaps uncomfortable. But "...to be truly successful in reshaping yourself is to find the why first. " These are the chapters that I read more than once. And then down to concrete information. How about this question? What is the one food that you can't live without?" Or think you can't live without or in moderation. Chances are it is fatty, salty, starchy or sweet. Oh, yes I have one. Tosca offers us ways to change that 'go-to' food into something healthier. Move a little. Those New Year's resolutions are often quite extreme. Join a gym. You might have done that - but are you still going? How about working up to it slowly? I loved these suggestions. They "incorporate movement into activities you already do - just do them smarter." There are three lists - 25 everyday activities, 25 five easy movements and 25 sport like activities. The idea is to go from not moving to moving a little and so on. It was pretty easy to work these into everyday life. Reading labels, shopping tips and list, Reno's meal plans, recipes and suggestions on how to stay on course comprise the second half of the book. I've not read any of Reno's books before and I'm now curious about the Eat Clean Diet as well. For me the biggest takeaway of The Start Here Diet was the first half - taking a good hard look at yourself, your life and your eating habits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great place to begin We all want to live a little healthier. That doesn't mean we're ready to give up sugar or buy a gym membership. Tosca's eat clean diet helped me lose and keep off 50 pounds for three years. Then I switched jobs and moved home to assist my aging mother. Mom likes to cook and the move away from my home of 13 years, my friends, my life had me a little depressed. In eight months 30 of those eat clean pounds went back on. Now Tosca has a new book and I'm ready to begin again!

PART ONE Coming Out of Hiding 1 My Prison Many of us think we are being honest when we say to ourselves, “I’m happy.” We think we are being honest when we tell ourselves and those we love, “I’m fine” or “Don’t worry, everything is all right.” But often we are lying. Not on purpose. Not because we want to mislead others. But because we are in such pain, or feel so uncomfortable with how we look or how we feel, that we hide. We hide from our families, our friends, our doctors, our co-­workers. We hide from ourselves. We hide because we feel ashamed. We tell everyone that we feel fine because how could we possibly admit that we are not? For years, I lived my life in hiding, and coming out of hiding took some painful reckoning. When others asked how I was doing, I would reply in a defensive tone, “I’m fine!” The message I clearly sent with that response was “Don’t dig any deeper. Leave me alone.” When I was seventy-­five pounds overweight, I was heavy emotionally as well as physically. I gained the weight because I was out of touch with my inner needs and voice; remaining heavy was a way to continue hiding. Admitting and recognizing the power of that inner place is where my journey to permanent weight loss and health began. And it will be the same for you. Not the same story, but the same reaching inward to the place where you’ve been hiding. To understand my weight loss journe
