It is a fact that avocados are relatively high calorific fruits, with 100 grams of flesh containing approximately 160 calories. Avocados are also a rich source of omega-9 fatty acids which are able to lower the levels of bad LDL cholesterol, whilst raising the levels of good HDL cholesterol. Finally, and here’s the clincher; avocados are a great source of protein, (which is rare for most fruits), but more importantly they’re also a great source of fiber. According to researchers at the University of Western Ontario, grapefruit is able to program your liver, so rather than storing fat, it actually burns it off. A drupe is essentially a fruit which has an outer section of flesh around a hardened endocarp, inside of which is a seed. The flesh of the coconut fruit itself, as well as being able to help you to lose weight, has some awesome health benefits. The beneficial heath properties of coconuts stem from their anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral characteristics.
There are some interesting studies on a tribe called the Kitavans who live on an island in Papua New Guinea. The great thing about bananas is that they’re an excellent source of carbohydrate, so they are a wonderful energy fuel, but a fat free one. Last but not least, because of the great packaging Mother Nature has designed for them, they’re nice and easy to carry around for a healthy snack whenever you need it.
Tomatoes also contain a substance known as Lycopene, and this is something that recent research has shown may by influential in helping to prevent certain forms of cancer. The other thing that lemon does is that it increases your body’s ability to absorb calcium.
Finally, lemons help to cleanse and detox your liver, which is vital for weight loss; the healthier and cleaner your liver, the better its ability to burn off fat.
Over the past year, my friend Dave at PaleoHacks has been working on a secret cookbook with world-renowned Le Cordon Bleu chef Peter Servold.
In the years running Healthy Holistic Living, I have come to the realization that empowering yourself with information is the key good health.
On a monthly basis, I will be updating this list in an effort to provide you with resources to help you along the way. About Latest Posts Michelle TooleMichelle Toole is the founder and head editor of Healthy Holistic Living. It was a never-ending cycle of eating, dieting, eating, dieting … that went on for 33 years!
It just didn’t make any sense that something as simple as losing weight was so complicated!
Little did I know that would be the start of a downward spiral of yo-yo dieting that would last 33 years!
Thousands of dieting dollars later, and in my 20′s I was tipping the scales at a whopping 200lbs. I vowed I would find a way to empower women to finally, once and for all, lose all the weight they want, without dieting, without calorie counting, without weigh-ins, without deprivation, without pain and without suffering. You see, in my final attempt to lose weight I had to work out why I had failed every single time. And you will learn how to finally set yourself free from this painful struggle once and for all. You will be astounded by how simple the process of losing weight and keeping it off for life really is. I cannot promise you specific results because every BODY is different and we’re all starting from a different place. This will serve as a community page where questions and answers will be static for all to see. Unlike a Facebook page where you sometimes have to scroll forever to find something you’re specifically searching for. In fact, I know a lot of people out there can’t even afford $29 for an eBook like this.
I don’t want to work with people who are only going to go into this with minimal commitment. With some of the secrets I’ve revealed here I know I could be selling it for SO much more. And to make matters worse in that same year Americans spent $300 Billion on fast food and $100 Billion on junk food! So getting back on track … I made this eBook inexpensive so that everyone can afford it.
I have a vision that you are one of the few who is committed to doing what it takes and that you will trust me to take you on a journey of 90 days that will finally rid you of the shackles that have tied you down for so long.

I have a vision that when you get to the other side, you will share your experience and this book with your family, your friends, and your loved ones. And then, and only then will we start to make a dent in the multi-billion dollar diet industry and we WILL make a difference in the lives of those we care so much about.
I don’t mean to be cruel here, but you’re the type of person the multi-billion dollar diet industry loves! They have made billions of dollars in profits from people just like you (and me.) And they count on you looking for the easy way out.
If you’re one of those people who get really excited with every new diet they try, only to quit and go back to their old ways, then you really should not buy my eBook.
This is only for those who are SERIOUS about this being the LAST weight loss program you ever buy. Be one of the many who are queuing up to buy my eBook and get started on their 90-day challenge. Erica is passionate in her belief that this plan works, and has the photographic evidence as proof.
Erica has an infectious personality and a zest for life that lends itself to working with people. It is her enthusiasm, professional drive, honesty and integrity that make people gravitate to Erica and listen to what she has to say. I met Erica in February 2008, and while we only worked together for a short time, she taught me about business ethics, life and love, and how to make decisions that stem from your heart. Erica is a strong and intelligent businesswoman who approaches new tasks and obstacles with enthusiasm, dedication and optimism. Unfortunately I could not find the same confidence when she spoke about her body and her struggle to lose weight. I realized that she had tried and tested many other slimming diets, pills and gimmicks which did not work and hence her reaching out for yet another solution. There was no blink when I told her that she had to come in for slimming treatments once a week and neither when I told her about the price of her slimming home care products. May I share that I was pleasantly surprised when I saw Erica’s before and after pictures. Erica was always a very private person and this may have been related to low self-esteem and her weight. In the past 20 years she has done phenomenally well facing and dealing with her food addictions and for this reason I think she’s very qualified to provide advice on overeating, weight loss and dealing with emotional problems.
If you look around at the people you know, who like us, are folks who are pursuing a holistic health lifestyle, you won’t find many who are overweight, but having said that, we’ve all go start somewhere. However, over nearly 70% of these calories are made up of monounsaturated oleic acid, which tends to be used as a slow burning source of energy, rather than just being stored as fat.
This makes them pass more slowly through the digestive tract, meaning that you feel fuller for longer.
It contains a flavonoid called Naringenin, a substance which has the ability to be able to balance blood sugar levels.
Drinking half a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast was the original recommendation for getting your liver into fat burning mode, but latest recommendations say that eating half a grapefruit before each meal maximizes the benefit.
Other drupes include almonds (I thought these were nuts too!), apricots, cherries, coffee beans, dates, mangoes, nectarines, olives, peaches, pistachios, and plums. But it is something called the medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that they contain that contribute to weight loss.
It is believed that their diet, which consists of coconuts, tubers and fish, is responsible for the fact that obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, acne, and dementia are virtually unheard of. They increase your pH levels (a process known as alkalizing), and they’re crammed full of minerals. So many people take them for granted because they’re so plentiful, and get used in salads all the time. Whilst cooking tomatoes destroys much of their vitamin and mineral content, it actually enhances the Lycopene content. And if you eat some of the peel too, you get a double whammy, because the peel contains pectin.
The calcium you absorb helps to improve bone density, but importantly, from a weight loss point of view, it gets stored in your body’s cells, where it is then used to burn fat. But the thing I like most about these foods is that they’re not only great at helping you to lose and control your weight, but they’re jammed, packed, full with tons of other health benefits to enhance your holistic health lifestyle too.
I encourage all of you to take back your power and gain the knowledge you need to live the fullest, healthiest and happiest life possible. I drank a bottle of Apple Shampoo that year because someone told me it would melt away all my fat.

I analyzed my behavior and finally pinpointed the exact mechanisms that were compelling me to fail.
And you will be hopping mad to know that so many years of pain and suffering could have been avoided if the multi-billion dollar diet industry had just told you the truth!
I am only looking to work with people who are committed to making this the last thing they EVER try to lose weight. Some people only SAY they want to lose weight, but they’re not actually prepared to Do What It Takes to lose the weight. Because I just did it … and all it took was 90 days to change the behaviors of a lifetime that kept me fat, frumpy and frustrated. When would NOW be a good time for you to change a lifetime of bad behavior when it comes to the subject of food? I know you don’t know me from a bar of soap so I wanted you to hear from people who have known me over the years.
Meeting her on a ship some 5 years ago was one of the best things that could have happened to me. It was in this position that I first met Erica and having known her for close to a decade I feel I am well placed to provide an honest assessment of her qualities.
She has a great understanding of what people want and has the great ability to be able to change her approach in order to relate to a wide variety of people. When I sat down in our consultation I knew that Erica was super ready and in desperate need for a change. This is really important, because it means that you’re not tempted to eat anything else for longer periods of time, and that when you do next eat, you’ll be more likely to eat less.
This helps to prevent a condition known as metabolic syndrome, which a pre-courser to diabetes, and is linked with putting weight on around the waist. One piece of research showed that in obese men, MCTs were responsible for an increase in the rate at which their bodies burned fat, while also helping to reduce the amount of fat their bodies stored. You can read a little more about the Kitavans by following this link to an article on the healthwithfood.
But they really do help you to lose weight, as well as keeping you fit and healthy at the same time.
But as they’re so versatile, you can eat them as part of a raw food diet, in salads, and as in ingredient in cooked foods like casseroles and pasta sauces. This acid, when ingested, mixes and interacts with the digestive juices in your stomach which improves your digestive systems ability to break down and digest food the food you’ve eaten. Pectin further enhances weight loss, because once ingested, it turns into a gelatinous like substance in your gut, which further helps to minimize the amount of sugar your body absorbs. The Cabbage Soup Diet, The Brown Bread Diet, The Yogurt Diet, The Water Diet, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Gloria Marshall, Herbalife … you name it, I tried it. I also said, if this DOES work, I’m going to shout it from the rooftops and share it with the world.
They function on you being misinformed and poorly educated on exactly HOW to lose weight and most importantly, keep it off forever.
If you need anyone to inspire or motivate you to do something good for yourself Erica is the person to do that. Always respecting those who have come before her and the ideas they have shared, but then adapting them and making them work for her. I later learned that she was an emotional eater and used food to overcome her personal issues.
How on earth can that be good for weight loss?” To be fair, this reaction is quite understandable; yes avocados are indeed mostly fat. A separate piece of research also returned similar results for women who consumed coconut oil. You can mix raw and cooked tomatoes to your heart’s content to reap the maximum health benefits they have to offer. But the acid content does more than just aid digestion; it also helps you to lose weight too.
So as well as eating fruits like coconut and avocados, both of which have high fat contents (but good fats of course), eating something like a banana that has little or no fat helps to balance things out.
