Avocados are one of the healthiest foods that you could ever eat. They are high in fat and calories, but they do amazing things for your body. They’re also full of fiber, so eating an avocado can keep you feeling full for longer.

Tuna contains omega-3 fatty acids that are essential to your body. The fatty acids help to lower high cholesterol levels and increase the blood flow throughout your body, which in turn also helps your heart. Avocados are also loaded with lutein, which is an antioxidant that helps to protect your skin and eyes from damage.

You’ve heard the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” This saying is true, because apples are loaded with antioxidants that help to neutralize free radicals that your body comes into contact with. They also help to boost your immune system, because they contain soluble fiber. This soluble fiber also helps you feel full for longer.

Basically, this entire recipe is loaded with antioxidants! You get your antioxidants and your healthy fats at the same time!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
