Loving Life!

Me and my books!

Me and my coach aka - Big Bob Kennedy
Hello All! My Sistah's in Iron and my Fellow Eaters of Clean Fare.

Can i just say how much I love you all? I feel like Kate Winslet the other night when she won two Golden Globes and went on for 5 minutes telling Leonardo di Caprio how much she loved him. Hmmm! Wonder what Kate's hubby thought of that? Okay I digress .... what I mean, is I love how smart you are. The comments resulting from the doc's blog post the other day show how much you have been paying attention, taking care of you and your loved ones and giving sugar and garbage foods the middle finger (can I say that?) I am still chuckling over some of the answers. You should be proud of yourselves. Good job gals.
I am sipping some hot tea with honey and lemon right now because I have a little bit of a dry throat. Otherwise I am feeling good and working hard at my next 2 (yes 2) books. Always something right? There are plenty of surprises in store for this year. We are going to have fun and share loads of laughs and tears I am sure. We are all in this together and I know for sure we are going to change one way or the other. It is the year of change!

I am already changing something. Starting January 1 I thought I would try the old trick of putting less on my plate or just not finishing everything on my plate. Sometimes my eyes are bigger than my stomach. You know what? It works. I am not hungry. I feel the same just not so bloated. My husband appreciates that last bit!! I can tell you. So if you don't want to change a whole lot, try it and see what you think. I feel great. Pants are getting a little looser and have good definition. I'll take it!

OMG!! I got the call to go on QVC! My show date is January 23rd/09. I will be on air at 9:00 am as an expert in Eating Clean and cooking clean. Can't wait to show them what we all already know!

So keep it tight ladies (any gents?) and stick with me. We are in for fun times.


Your Sister in Iron

Well... I love your books, I am still working on getting the one for families. Yes, I have to have some kind of comfort food, and kids love comfort food. So, I can't believe it, 2 more books, and QVC! Yay! I can't wait!

Yes, I am paying attention when it comes to eating clean! So... do me a favor, get back to that doc, and tell her that she's wrong, and all we want is a healthier America!

Good for you Tosca... Keep up the good work!

OMG! QVC is RIGHT down the street from where I live! Literlly like a mile! I'll be at work when you're on, but that's SOOOO exciting!!!!!
Congrats to you!!!
If you have time to check out the West Chester, PA area...there is a gym right around the corner, well I should say health and wellness center, that you may enjoy visiting. Complete with day spa and all. It's called ACAC Fitness and Wellness center.
Anyway, congrats to you! I'm sure you'll be fantastic on QVC and reach many more people than you already have!!!

Tosca, congrats for you on the portion change!!! I am going to try it, because I think I eat too much... the only thing ...I grew up in a way when I had to finish whatever was on my plate, then I could leave the table,or would get a treat...sooo it is a bit harder for me to come over.. still to this day I catch myself thinking :"I have to finish whatever is on my plate"... I know I need to work on this, and thank you for sharing your experience with it... helps me big time!!!!!

My husband is LOVING clean eating, so you have a gent!!! He thinks this is the best thing to ever happen to him on a food level.

Wow, congrats, Tosca! I live right down the street from QVC too! And belong to ACAC! Maybe I'll try to figure out a way to work from home next week so I can see you when you're on. Or I'll drive down and try to meet you. How cool would that be? I've only just re-started exercising and eating clean, but I do believe it's the only way to go for true health and well being. You rock! Thanks so much for all you do for us!

I have been reading your blog and, of course, Oxygen for a while now. I have to now motivate myself to actual eat clean and get in all of the workouts that I plan. Reading from you puts that fire under me to actually do it. I plan on ordering your book today.

Congratulations Tosca, that's fantastic! You must be so thrilled. I don't think us Canadian gals can catch QVC on tv though? Any word on your show on the W Network? I can't wait!

Hi Tosca,
This is an article I found titled "Childhood diet influences future health". I thought of your latest cookbook for kids and how important the 'eat clean' message is for them as well as adults.
PS-You looked radiant on CTV.

Tosca~ Please, please come to Vancouver someday! I know there are alot of BC'ers that would LOVE to meet you and attend a book signing / seminar etc!

Smiles to you from the westcoast :0)

Well, I'm sure I'm not the first nor am I apt to be the last to try to promote you and eating clean to the "Midas." I just emailed the Oprah Winfrey show your clip from CTV as well as your website link and a rather gushing letter. :) (I know I'm a nerd and I'm the first to admit it1) I can't believe with all the shows she's doing on health and a "new you" that she hasn't had YOU on her program yet to promote clean eating. Here's hoping!

Keep up the great work, Tosca! You've been a huge inspiration to this once "skinny-fat-chick". I've completely transformed my body just a year after having my third baby boy. I'm now a super-fit-chick!

Warm hugs from frigid Saskatchewan,

Yay on the poster who e.mailed Oprah. I was thinking about that the other day. She should definately have you on her show.

I love your idea of eating on a smaller plate. That's what I do at dinner since seriously eating clean starting in Nov. It works. I also stop at the "sigh". Not sure if you have ever noticed that your body sighs when it's satisfied. Works every time. I push that plate away.

I am so happy to hear that you love your readers because we love you. You are my inspiration after years and years of struggle. Because of your words Tosca and my commitment to those words I have dropped 12lbs and at 46 will look hot in the 3 bathing suits I've packed for Mexico this Saturday. Thank you from my heart.

I wondered if there is a date for the airing of the show from the IDFA in Toronto filmed November 8th 2008.
