Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOTHING NEW!!! I am a big fan of Tosca Reno and I have all her books. This is her second book thet I am dissapointed with. Nothing new here. I would say that even in her first EAT CLEAD DIET book rules and principles were presented more clearly.

Read from the Book

Dear Dieter,   On a recent book promotional tour through far too many towns to remember, I had an Aha! moment. (I wonder if Oprah wishes she had copyrighted that term?) Anyway, I discovered something very important – I noticed members of the audience looking confused when I suggested various ways to change one’s lifestyle. For example, I would mention ditching sugar, then adding flaxseed, then eating five or six meals each day, oh and don’t forget water. As one seminar followed another, I realized I was overwhelming these lovely people. And as friendly as I have tried to make The Eat-Clean Diet® series, I also understand reading a 250+ page book on nutrition can be overwhelming, too.   That’s when it hit me. I needed to write a simple, fun, upbeat and portable book that would serve as a guide to help people begin embracing the Eat-Clean Diet lifestyle. I realized I may not be getting my message across in the most accessible way. Forgive me; nutrition is my life’s passion, and I tend to get too excited by the little details. It’s time to go back to basics!   Just the Rules is that tool for you: the busy mom, truck driver, traveling sales executive, author, athlete, priest, student or whatever your job description may be. You’re short on time and low on attention span though you want to do the best for your family and yourself.   Though small, Just the Rules is packed with readily digestible information to help you get on the path to wellness. We condensed the information so you can pick up the book and get started no matter who or where you are. We have taken the frustration out of the process! My goal is to keep you from glazing over and to gently but firmly push you over the line to getting back the best version of you.   Remember who that is? It is you running, swimming, making love, dancing, playing with your kids and looking like life has blanketed you with radiant health and energy. People will notice and ask, “What is different about you? What have you done?” And you can whip out your little tool Just the Rules and say, “I learned how to Eat Clean and I love it!”   Remember, I am always listening, Tosca Reno     HOW TO EAT   1   Our ancestors did it for us and before us       We have the cumulative knowledge and wisdom of many generations before us, so why do we choose to ignore it?   Our human race is a collection of our ancestors’ DNA; we are part of all who have come before us. Our ancestors gained and left behind a great deal of knowledge regarding food. Just because they have passed doesn’t mean we should turn up our noses at their legacy. Don’t you want your children and their children to use the lessons you have taught them? Over the generations we have seen how ignoring such valuable information has affected our society; we have become polluted, material driven, inactive and unhealthy. And now we want a quick fix for it all!   Our ancestors knew that all good things come with time, patience and hard work. This included cultivation of crops and food. A long time ago food was not as easy to come by as it is now. The Aztecs didn’t just walk into a grocery store and pick out treats. Their food was planted, watered, dried by the sun, fertilized and prepared by hand. Food was meant and used to power the body, allowing it to function like a well-oiled machine. Industrialization and technology have removed these steps from our food production efforts. This is not all bad, of course. As much as we can thank our ancestors for hard organic work, we can also thank them for innovation, technology and industrialization. However, we must use modern innovation both wisely and in moderation.   I am not saying you personally should grow everything you eat because this isn’t possible for most of us. The idea here is that our ancestors didn’t sit on the couch plowing chips all day. They worked hard and rested and ate when and what they needed. They understood how to make food last rather than eating every last morsel in one sitting. We too need to adapt elements of this lifestyle into our own and use our resources appropriately!     Our ancestors knew that all good things come with time, patience and hard work.
