I love that The Eat-Clean Diet is on this list and that it's #1. As a  dietician, I often recommend this book to my clients, the concepts are great; think, 'If I don't know what all the ingredients are on a label, then why would I put it in my mouth!'

EVERYONE should eat clean and eat like Tosca tells you to on The Eat-Clean Diet. Really it's much more like a lifestyle than a diet!
