EMB #188: Strike Sugar

Today I have the pleasure of interviewing best selling author and health and wellness advocate Tosca Reno. To be honest this was an almost surreal experience given that I was reading articles Tosca was putting together in the Oxygen Magazine almost 20 years ago.

Here is more about Tosca (this was written and sent in by Tosca’s team:

At the age of 40, Tosca took control of her life and transformed her overweight and unfulfilled self into a strong, fit woman by Eating Clean. For the past decade she has been helping an ever-increasing number of followers lose weight and get healthy with the Eat-Clean Diet®.

Tosca translates healthy eating into an easily adaptable and enjoyable lifestyle that hasattracted big-name celebrity followers such as Angelina Jolie, makeup artist Bobbi Brown and Paula Abdul.
