I'm hoping that the firewalkers will be less complicated to do since there is a band solely for it now. I hate having to tie my band because I have a hard time getting the knot out.

OK so I keep thinking about these books and Cathe's firewalker band like all of the time. Pay day is Friday so before I go to buy makeup I'm going to put my orders in for diet and fitness. Recession??? Ha!

No. I am sure they don't always. But, I do know that there is at least ONE bodybuilder who practiced total clean, organic eating and that he talked my dad into eating clean, and thus curing his terminal cancer... anyhow, blah, blah, blah! LOL!

Anyhow, I got my new cookbook today!!! emoticon
Some GREAT looking recipes!

These are the ones I HAVE to try first!
kasha breakfast pudding
egg strata
morning berry strata
lifestyle bars YUM!
wild rice with toasted nuts
mediterranean lentils (I grew up HAVING to eat lentils, but these ones actually look good!)
dirty rice (with a recipe for homemade cajun spice)
saffron & pomegranate rice pilaf
OMG! The list goes on and on!
bison chili
curry soup
potatoes anna
lemon & cinnamon sweet potatoes
lettuce wraps
persian beef
cream of wheat pudding
Nut Butter energy bars
MANY MORE! YUMMY!

And your right Laura, she's not the original pioneer of clean eating but did come up with some great recipes for it.

Honestly, as a former competitor, not all those figure/bodybuilders are eating properly just as Blackndi said. My former bodybuilding nutritionist had me eating nothing but double boiled chicken nd almonds the lst weeks. Now I've got the gout and have an attack lmost every January for some strange reason. I think the holiday eating sets it off. I don't want to go on meds for it though. This year I'm staying away from the high fat comfort junk. We're not even handing out cndy this year for Halloween...little toys instead.

Arnold is an exception though. He said (in my other Bible - The Education of a Bodybuilder)that cornflakes mixed in with ground beef and fried up makes a great burger for lunch. Ha!!!! Mr. Olympia wasn't really good at eating clean. I found that to be so odd when I read that.

Oh and I only follow Tosca's nutrition advice now that I have lost the weight. I have referred to Food for Fitness and the Carb Addicts books (I still look in them from time to time depending on my fitness goals because they do talk about that stuff in their books - which Tosca doesn't). I only follow the fitness advice from my trainers like Arnold, Jillian, Amy, Cathe and ChaLean. That's it! This sounds like a disclaimer lol.

I just have to add... as much as I absolutely LOVE TOSCA!, she is not a pioneer to clean eating. Clean eating books, maybe. But not clean eating. Tosca has written the Clean Eating Bible (got that from BLACKANDI!)
Clean eating is a practice that has been embraced by bodybuilders and has been around for many years...

Here story is in the front of the Eat-Clean Diet book. I think all clean eaters should have at least that one book. It sums it all up in a nutshell in a very easy to understand way. I refer to it all the time. I have two copies. One in my car and one on my desk at work.

BECCIE - Tosca is a pioneer in clean eating. I was into what she was promoting before it became a household term. I've been getting Oxygen since 2003. She got her start in Oxygen Magzine where she still writes articles about being fabulous and fourty. She was very overweight at one point in her life, horribly depressed and tired. She changed her eating habits got fit and healthy and has even recently walked the stage in a figure competition. At lmost 50! She even has a show about her competition prep (which I haven't seen yet). She's married to Robert Kenedy who just happens to be the owner of Oxygen amoung several other fitness magzines. She has a great story and is well worth the read. Try and get her books used or from the librabry if you can. I'd bet you could get her first cookbook for a steal used on amazon.

LOL! Most of her recipes are most likely all ready in the TEam Cookbook, BECCIE. Also, if you look through the forums on this team, most of the FIRST threads was info I took out of her book. CLEAN EATING PRINCIPLES and CLEAN EATING GROCERY LIST...
But, yeah! No problem BECCIE! Love to share!!! emoticon

Okay, guys. I have no idea who this person is. Is it really a good book to get? I'm in college and money is tight. Maybe you lovely ladies will share some of the stuff in the book.

Thanks for the heads up Laura! I'm going to put it in my wishlist and get one used as soon as I can. I prefer used books whenever possible, some people hardly even read the drn things and turn around and resell for a fraction of the price.

BLACKANDI, i had not thought about going to the bookstore and reading before i buy before. I hate getting a book that is not what I expected. I think I need to go to the book store.

I haven't been to a library...too embarassed to say. There is something about used books I don't like. LOL! I could always go to B&N to read it and take notes before I buy. That's usually what I do before I buy any book though. To make sure I want it. I know I want these books though. I have to get hubby the Eat-Clean Diet book for men anyway.

Everything is going to be alright. :)

I'm going to wait until Oct. 25 to get the books because I just spent 50 bucks on the Twilight series hardcover novels and besides Hubby is not trying to hear me buying anything until Xmas. I shop way too much. I wonder how long I can hold out...lol. You all will be talking about the books and I'm going to be sitting over here feeling all left out...

...it's only a matter of time. :p

It shipped already? Amazon is saying that it isn't released yet and isn't available until Oct. 25th. If you get it early then I will definitely go ahead and order it through Amazon.
