It’s the first day of summer and we couldn’t be more excited about kicking it off with our new Biggest Loser Correspondent Courtney Crozier! You’ll remember her as a fan favorite from season 11 who dawned the aqua shirt and a whole lot of self-confidence. You might also remember that Courtney lost 120 pounds on her own prior to joining the show, and then posted a 110 pound loss during Biggest Loser.
We promise no one can motivate like this girl can! That’s why we’re launching Courtney’s Summer Challenge. The challenge is a 12-week program fueled by a new video post each week from Courtney. She’ll update on her own progress, as she continues working toward her own weight loss goal, and pose a challenge to everyone for the week. For instance, in this week’s kick-off challenge, she is asking everyone to get out and take a walk once a day.

Don’t miss our Wholly Guacamole Giveaway!
Everyone wants to cut calories from their diet, but rarely are we as quick to be willing to cut flavor. I’ve learned over the years that the healthier foods actually have more flavor. More flavor and food that’s better for you? That, I believe, is what they call a win-win!
Condiments add pointless calories to meals faster than anything else. Spreads, dips, sauces and dressings are diet saboteurs, and while you might think giving up sour cream, salad dressing and mayo will force you to abandon good taste, our yummy tips save you calories and offer more flavor.
We’ve mentioned before that we love Wholly Guacamole and Salsa. Unlike a lot of packaged guacamole brands, there are real Haas avocados in each container, along with onion, garlic, tomatoes, jalapenos and cilantro. It’s a healthy snack at 45 calories per serving. So healthy that the brand is now the official Guacamole and Salsa of Biggest Loser.
We came up with ten swaps and recipes that use guacamole and salsa to cut calories while increasing flavor. We promise it works if you just try! (more…)
It’s true, we can’t say enough good things about Wholly Guacamole and Wholly Salsa. When a food brand uses real ingredients, keeps calories low and doesn’t rely on artificial this or that AND manages to make it taste great, who wouldn’t love that?
We want you to find out for yourself. That’s why we’re giving five DietsInReview.com readers a cooler full of Wholly Guacamole and Wholly Salsa, as well as cool swag like a T-shirt.
This pack of guac can be yours, you just need to leave a comment below telling us your favorite way to eat guacamole or salsa – or both!
There’s something about Mexican food that makes people want to gather together and turn any ordinary afternoon or evening in to a celebration for nothing in particular. The center of these gatherings being chips, guacamole and salsa. Now, these snacks can be high in calories and fat and just one more empty calorie fiesta. The best way to handle this is to prepare it yourself, but not everyone has the time (or even the money) to make a fresh batch of salsa or guacamole on demand. Eat, I mean meet, the next best thing – Wholly Guacamole!
You might think any ‘ole guacamole from the store will be fine, but an article at Yahoo! this week by Men’s Health editor David Zinczenko revealed that those premade guacamoles aren’t actually made with avocados. In fact, their ingredient labels show less than two-percent avocado with the rest being “green goo [and] a cluster of fillers and chemicals, including modified food starch, soybean oils, locust bean gum, and food coloring.”
Wholly guacamole starts with fresh Haas avocados, then adds onion, garlic, tomatoes, jalapenos and cilantro for a flavorful, fresh snack that can’t be beat by other grocery brands. (more…)
