About The Book



What Dr. Mercola Says About the Coconut Diet

“I’ve written quite a bit over the years about the countless advantages of coconut oil and its many health-promoting benefits. Cherie’s easy-to-read book takes a closer look at the disease-fighting properties of coconut oil and provides you with pages of research and statistics on why coconut oil is one of the most misunderstood and overlooked foods of recent times. The Coconut Diet is a very practical read and does all the work for you by providing you with a 21-day weight-loss plan along with delicious recipes. The authors of this book, Cherie and John Calbom do a thorough job of showing the readers how they can enhance their lifestyles by offering them several tools such as quizzes to determine if they have diseases preventing their weight-loss success and in-depth shopping lists of the best foods to buy for the coconut diet. It is only with resources like this book that coconut oil is starting to get the respect it deserves as not only the healthiest oil you can consume, but as one of the most nutritious of all foods.”

Karen’s Coconut Diet Story in Woman’s World

I lost 15 pounds in four months. I’ve continued to lose weight, too. It just keeps coming off without even trying. I started my lifestyle change by adding organic virgin coconut oil to Cherie’s recipe “Awesome Green Smoothie”, which I make every morning for breakfast. I also increased my vegetable intake, reduced refined carbohydrates, ate lean meat and fish, and added this healthy coconut oil to my diet. Then I started juicing veggies, which took me to a higher level of health.

My health has improved significantly since I started Cherie’s program The Coconut Diet and her juice program. My allergies decreased considerably. Once I changed my diet, I had more of a desire to eat healthier. I also have more energy to get things done. I really like the energy that I enjoy today. I’m now able to exercise without feeling totally exhausted afterward.

I used to wake up in the morning feeling grumpy and more tired than when I went to bed. Now, I’m waking up happy and feeling better than ever. This is such a breakthrough for me. Even in the gloomy winter weather I’m still happy. That makes my family a lot happier, too.

At one point in my program, I just wasn’t losing weight. Cherie, who’s been my nutritionist, suggested I try the liver cleanse from Phase II of The Coconut Diet. After being on the liver cleanse for about a week, I really noticed the difference in my weight loss and how much better I felt.

Thanks to The Coconut Diet program, I have more energy, my allergies to certain foods have cleared up, I’m happier, my dull, lifeless hair is now strong and shiny, my eyes are sparkling instead of dull, and spots on my skin are completely gone. I wasn’t sure how Cherie’s program would change my life when I first started. Now, I’m a believer! Doing all these good things that started by taking coconut oil has given me a desire to eat healthier. I love how good I feel and never want to lose that. I’m not sick like I used to be. And I’m happier than I’ve ever been.

Your metabolism slows down as you get older,” says Sheri Plaisance Whitehead, a Baton Rouge- area homemaker, who’d packed on 70 pounds while pregnant. Luckily, Sheri heard about coconut oil. “The scale wasn’t moving – then I bought the coconut oil and suddenly it just kept going lower and lower. I lost 10 pounds right away.”

Now back to her prepregnancy weight, Sheri’s really glad she kept her skinny jeans!

Laura lost 54 pounds

“I was on the treadmill for an hour every day and couldn’t lose a pound,” recalls Laura Spretnjak, who’d been diagnoses with an under active thyroid. “And I was only eating 1,200 calories a day!” That all changed when the Chicago mom, 32, took the advice of her health-conscious sister and experimented with coconut oil. Stunned when she shed five pounds in the first week, she decided to try a low-carb regimen, too. Then weight really started pouring off. ” I was eating more, losing rapidly and I had more energy,” she says. “It was so easy, I don’t even consider it a diet.”

A size 12 since junior high, Laura now wears size 6s.

Tip – Give yourself a week. “That’s about how long it takes for your carb cravings to pass,” Laura says.

In no time I was energized and my clothing was looser,” say the Miami teacher, 40, whose waist has shrunk by five inches. “The results motivated me to keep on trucking.

Choose a Good Quality Coconut Oil

Not all coconut oil is the same. Some people have emailed me saying the coconut oil they bought tasted terrible, some said it tasted like soap, and they would never eat coconut oil again. Unfortunately, they did not purchase a good-quality organic, virgin coconut oil. There are coconut oil brands that say organic and virgin but are not processed in the best manner; therefore, they do not have the quality and taste of other coconut oils.

I’ve researched many different brands of coconut oil and have chosen one of the best brands on the market to make available for you.

Photo of Transporting Organic Coconuts to make Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. Our unrefined virgin coconut oil is hand-made.The virgin coconut oil I recommend is an unrefined coconut oil. This coconut oil is made on Mt. Banahaw and surrounding areas from organic coconuts. Coconuts are used fresh (within 24-48 hours of harvest) from small family farms on Mt. Banahaw and other rural places in Quezon Province, the coconut capital of the Philippines. Only the highest quality coconuts are hand-picked from each harvest. The volcanic soil of Mt. Banahaw makes these organic coconuts some of the most nutritionally rich coconuts in the world! Testing done in independent laboratories reveals higher levels of phenolic antioxidants than other coconut oils. The fresh coconut meat is shredded (wet milled), and then cold-pressed using the water from inside the coconuts to make coconut milk. The milk is then allowed to sit for about half a day, while the oil naturally separates from the heavier water. The oil is then filtered from the curds (coconut solids).

No chemical or high-heat treatment is used, and this oil contains no trans fatty acids. This oil is not mass-produced. It is made by families who are coconut farmers using old-fashioned traditional methods that have been used in the Philippines for hundreds of years. The coconut trees and family producers are certified organic according to strict USDA standards. The families who produce the oil are also trained according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards and re-certified each year. Virgin Coconut Oil can only be achieved by using fresh coconut meat or what is called non-copra. Chemicals and high heating are not used in further refining, since the natural, pure coconut oil is very stable with a shelf life of several years. This high-grade Virgin Coconut Oil has a long shelf life due to the high antioxidant properties.
