Really no pumpkin on the list?? As we speak I'm making a pumpkin, pear, and ginger soup. Also surprised that sardines aren't on the list. Otherwise I think it's ok.

Why did the following high sugar content foods select as super foods: potatoes, Orange juice, soy milk, corn(sugar), all rice except brown rice. Most of the fruit listed except berries are bad for you because of the sugar content as well. I managed to keep my sugar level well below 100 because I avoided most fruits and replaced with vegetables. Alsdo, canned sardines should replaced tuna as well.

The list of calcium rich foods seems pretty limited. No sardines, no canned salmon? Really???

I am just learning what is good for you, now. I just read about Coconut Oil, and have actually seen an increase to the weight loss and to the thyroid difference. I can feel the difference in my thyroid gland, and as a skin conditioner it works great! I now have happy feet. It is the only thing I use now for my tanning, because in 20 to 30 minutes, It is fully absorbed, with the faint scent of coconut. I only cook with coconut oil and mix it with butter for any spreads, and the kids love it. It is a natural antibiotic and quick energy for the low carb dieter, as it is a medium chain oil. I LOVE COCONUT OIL!

Completely agree with Ellsjo and Erigust in re the so-called healthier low-fat dairy foods. I went this route, and yes, I lost weight, but I also developed colon cancer. Limit your quantity but don't eliminate them. Besides, do you really enjoy chewing on a mozzarella stick that looks and tastes like a wax candle?????

I couldn't agree more with how 'low fat' food is so bad for you. I found 'Be good to yourself -Healthy' yogurt, really low fat but with 27 extra calories of sugar in it. Or low fat hummous with 3% salt. Companies charge extra for 'healthy' foods but just take out the fat, but then it tastes so bad they then add lots of sugar and, or, salt, both of which will add more weight than the fat taken out.

I agree with wapfrocks, eating full fat dairy is actually healthier than nonfat, I continue to lose weight eating this and other whole foods. I think the list is great, but I was disappointed not to see chia seeds, coconut oil, or matcha tea. These are POWER FOODS and yet somehow get overlooked. Most people don't even know coconut oil is one of the best things you can eat after the previous bad rap it has gotten. I would love to see more articles written about the lesser known super foods!

Thank you for this list. I try to make several different smoothies a day. I see options here I had not thought of.

TerryGloria and Kitty54, i assume you meant the list wasnt very accessible because its online?? you could just print it and keep it in your purse or something. just a suggestion.

I agree with Kitty 54. The list is great but it not too accessible for use.

sorry, Grapeseed oil is higher in Omega-6's olive oil is higher in Omega-3's....very important distinction there, sorry folks.

Bummer that Grapeseed oil isn't on the's higher in omega's than olive oil, has a much, much higher smoking point, and is loaded with vitamin E.(3.9 mg/Tbsp, while Olive oil has 1.9)

They are practically *Identical* in terms of calorie/nutritional content...and grapeseed oil is *very* high in antioxidants.

Don't be scared of canola oil. It's a fake internet-scare. Snopes has the details:

Seriously. Always snopes *everything* you read on the internet, *especially* if it sounds OMG frightening. Scary-sounding lies move faster than the truth. Do your part to shut them down.
