Fifty+, Fit, and Fabulous !!! Tosca Reno, age 55 (She lives around the corner from the Fountain of Youth)

Well well well….it seems a year or so after starting the Fifty Fit and Fabulous "Dream Team" on my blog , these posts are perhaps my most popular group of articles (I didn't see that coming!!!)

But hey, now I have a full roster on my FF&F "Hoop Squad"!!!

Now comes Tosca Reno, age 55, who is, as we say in basketball, "Charging hard like a point guard!!!" onto my "Dream Team".

________________________________________________________

She's on "cruise control", halfway through her 50's very smoothly and nicely (as you can see). And her "angle" in this game, "Clean Eating" is so important to all of us, no matter what our age………………….

"Put simply, 'Clean Eating' is avoiding all processed food, relying on fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains rather than prepackaged or fast food." says Reno

________________________________________________________

Reno, the author of 13 clean eating books, says the secret to being healthy and happy is eating clean.

Her popular "Eat-Clean Diet" encourages individuals to drink plenty of water and eat six small meals daily, including a combination of lean protein and complex carbohydrates.

"It may sound counterintuitive, but eating clean allows you to eat more and weigh less because you are making smart food choices," Reno said.

"I sometimes get criticized for using the word 'diet,' but the Eat-Clean Diet really is a lifestyle change that leads to healthy, steady weight loss and healthy eating for life."

Reno's advice to those wanting to change their lives is to first realize there is another way to live. Reno's own "a-ha moment" came at 40. Unhealthy and in an unhappy marriage, she realized she must make changes.

After divorcing her first husband, she began to see life differently.

At the time, Reno was overweight and was battling heart problems and hypoglycemia. She began going to the gym and decided to go back to school.

________________________________________________________

She said eating clean has helped her manage her grief and maintain her strength, after losing her husband and fitness mentor Robert, to lung cancer.

"I have abundant energy. My emotional energy is strong," she said. "I feel like when you have the nutritional army at work inside of you, you are that much more able to ward off depression."

Reno advises all who begin the Eat-Clean Diet have a clear purpose in mind to power them through the process.

"Anything new is challenging or different," she said. "But it becomes second nature very quickly."

"Always having clean food available is key, Reno said. "When you're cooking dinner, double the recipe and pack the extra food for the next day's meals — I call these 'planned leftovers,' " she said.

"This will make it super easy to just grab a healthy meal when you're pressed for time".

Also, when you leave the house, make sure you take a cooler filled with your healthy meals for the day." She advises dieters to envision the end result, just like one would envision arriving at a travel destination.

"You just need that opening, that moment, when you finally decide to give yourself permission to change."
