Roasted Chicken, Avocado & Grapefruit Salad
If your weight loss has stalled on the FMD and you have several of the H-Burn symptoms, there may be a hormonal imbalance in the body. In 10 days on the H-Burn plan you can lose up to 10 lbs. You’ll eat foods that stabilize the natural hormone regulatory system so the body can release and incinerate fat. Your targeted nutrition will include vegetables like spinach, asparagus, cauliflower, and fennel; fruits like mangos, peaches, plums, oranges, nectarines; protein like eggs, hummus, chicken, fish; and healthy fats like coconut oil, avocado and raw nuts.
The thermogenic combination of the spinach, cilantro, avocado and grapefruit in this salad will nurture your liver, gallbladder, and thyroid with micronutrients so they can restore balance to your body and begin torching that stubborn, hormone-induced fat causing your weight loss to stall.
Prep time: 10 minutes | Total time: 10 minutes | Serves 2
- 2 grapefruits
- 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
- 5 to 15 drops liquid stevia (to your taste)
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 4 cups fresh baby spinach
- 8 ounces sliced or shredded cooked chicken
- 1/4 avocado, sliced

Peel the grapefruits and cut the segments apart over a bowl to catch the juice. Whisk together 1/4 cup of the grapefruit juice, the grapeseed oil, stevia, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Arrange 2 cups spinach on each of 2 plates. Divide the grapefruit, chicken, and avocado evenly between the plates. Drizzle half of the dressing over each serving, and sprinkle with cilantro.
