The Eat-Clean Diet

The Eat-Clean Diet, developed by Reno focuses on eating natural foods without preservatives. Reno’s diet offers a combination of healthy eating and exercise[2]

There are eight main principles of the diet[3]. Eat five to six small meals spread out by two to three hours every day; combine lean protein and complex carbohydrates at every meal; drink two to three liters of water each day; carry a cooler packed with natural, unprocessed foods to get you through the day; avoid pre-packaged, over-processed refined foods; avoid white sugar and flour, saturated and trans fats, colas, juices and alcohol; consume healthy fats, including fresh fruits and vegetables; and stick to proper portion sizes.

Common Misconceptions of the Eat-Clean Diet

Some have referred to the diet as a low-carb diet. The Eat-Clean Diet is not a low carb diet because it calls for the consumption of complex carbohydrates in every meal. Complex carbs from fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains are consumed in conjunction with lean proteins from nuts, legumes, soy and soy-based products, low fat dairy, fish and lean meat and healthy fats from nuts, fish and oils.

Personal life

Reno is married to Robert Kennedy, Publisher of the Eat-Clean Diet as well as six magazines and hundreds of healthy eating, fitness, and bodybuilding books[4]. He has also authored several best selling bodybuilding books. Tosca and Robert, along with their five children, live in the Caledon Hills of Ontario just north of Toronto.


Tosca was featured in an a Mini-Reality Series called Tosca: Flexing at 49[5] in 2009. The eight-part series focused on her preparations for the final bodybuilding competition of her career. The series aired on the Viva Network in Canada in June, 2009.
