(NaturalNews) In 2010, Erica decided to venture on a journey toward healthier living. To kick-start the process, she started a 30-day raw fruit and vegetable detox. After observing changes in her body and mood, including a more toned figure and increased energy, she decided to make eating fruits and vegetables a way of life.

The best part? She lost 33 pounds along the way!

Suggested foods for weight loss and health maintenance

Erica's refrigerator boasts healthy choices like strawberries, watermelon, carrots, broccoli and apples, all foods that are good for us whether it's due to their immune-building antioxidant properties or high vitamin content. She says she eats these raw throughout the day, but primarily, she blends certain foods together to obtain multiple nutrients.

In particular, she's fond of her red berry juice, explaining that after it's made, she pours it into a large water jug or container and brings it to work. "I work 12-hour days, so I can take this with me and it lasts all day," she says of the convenience factor that blending brings to her life.

Her red berry juice is made by filling a blender half way with water. She then adds come ice. Next comes a variety of fruits and vegetables, beginning with spinach leaves, blackberries and her favorite, cranberries. Cranberries are known to have anti-inflammatory and cardiovascular benefits, and also play a role in healing urinary tract infection (UTIs). The nutritious mixture doesn't stop there. Erica continues to add raspberries, and then tops it off with mango chunks and agave nectar. Finally, add some more water and blend on high until everything is mixed together.

In addition to eating healthy foods, she also exercises. Her body is significantly toned as a result of her dietary and physical changes.

Ready to lose weight or just want to eat healthier? Erica advises to "never use juices," explaining that water and natural sweeteners (like the agave nectar she uses) are natural ways to achieve weight loss and improve health.
