Eat Clean Diet
How it Works
Lose the baby weight just by cutting out the preservatives and processed foods? That's the premise behind Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Diet, a lifestyle diet that doesn't make you count calories or fat or carb grams, but does require you to commit to a daily menu of nothing but "whole foods," meaning fruits, vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats, and lean proteins prepared as close to their natural state as possible. According to Reno, when you "detox" from processed foods—and the preservatives, food chemicals, trans fats, and excess sodium they contain—your body naturally regulates its own weight and quickly sheds excess pounds.
Is This Diet for You?
Preparing whole foods can sometimes be a chore, but for those who like to cook, "eating clean" gives you lots of flavor—for dinner, think roasted chicken with fresh herbs, mashed cauliflower drizzled with olive oil and a crisp, colorful salad—and plenty of new mom nourishment.
