Hey there! My name is Rose Cole and I’m a Certified Nutrition Coach in Santa Monica. I recently took a trip to Costa Rica for a wedding and I experienced this awesome phenomenon that many of my friends who have visited Costa Rica have also experienced. It’s hard to believe, but most of us that went on this Costa Rica trip lost weight without even trying!

It was an amazing experience to step out of the US and see how fat we really are as a country in comparison to other countries. The Costa Ricans were so much more fit and trim. I was not there to get lean and trim personally, but I did find out that Americans are flocking to Costa Rica for yoga retreats, and wellness tours every year to do just that.

What could be contributing to this unforeseen phenomenon? Here’s what I think it is:

1. Fast Food in the Southern Pacific is Rare! Not all of of the Country is like the pristine Osa Peninsula, but the Southern Pacific area has very few fast food chains. The entire time I was there I saw exactly ONE fast food restaurant. The lack of that option in the Southern zone kept us and the natives looking a little trimmer than the typical US Citizen.

2. Gluten & Dairy Are Equally Rare. Costa Ricans don’t eat much in the way of dairy and gluten. Instead, their diet is heavy on rice and beans and lots fresh fish. Since many people are intolerant to both dairy and gluten, and that intolerance causes weight gain and bloating, I think that plays a huge role.

3. Tico Time! Native Costa Rican’s are referred to as “Ticos”, and the culture is totally laid back. There is little to no stress going on with these people. They don’t rush around, they don’t check their blackberry every 2 minutes, and they don’t sit and watch TV all day long. They live active lifestyles, and are out in the fresh air, sunshine, and the surf. When you visit Costa Rica, you fall into the same habits, and your stress literally melts away as you invite wellness in your life.

4. Fat Burning Superfoods. Costa Ricans have been using highly nutritious superfoods from deep within the rainforests for thousands of years to get energized, stay healthy, and boost immune function. AND they actually help speed up metabolism.

This combination packs a powerful punch on your weight. With little to no effort, the pounds just melt away. You return to your normal life slimmer, relaxed, and rejuvenated. If we could just maintain these things in our regular lifestyle, we would not only be slimmer, but we would definitely be happier!

I’ve had so many people ask me about how they can do their own Costa Rica Fat Loss Cleanse in their own home that I’m creating a free informational report to pass this discovery on. Enter your name and email here to be put on the waiting list to get your copy: www.RoseCole.com/CostaRicaDiet

In love and service,

    You are missing the point that when you are on vacation in Costa Rica you are more active than you normally are at home. Costa Rican’s diet is high in fat…the beans and rice you are eating were most likely cooked with lard. And the “lack of fast good restaurants” is a total misconception. In the cities, there are KFC, Pizza Huts, Burger Kings, Papa Johns, and many more all over the place.

    I’m Costa Rican and as far I know we don’t cook our rice and beans with lard. The only time some people may use lard is during Christmas for their tamales but not everybody uses it. I’ve been living in CA for the last 3 years. I try to cook my brown rice and beans and all the typical Costa Rican dishes too. Although It’s true you can find fast food chain restaurants over there but not as many as you can find here. For example I recall 2 McDonalds in Heredia downtown (1 of 7 provinces).
    The bottom line is our diet is definitely healthier than the American diet, we consume less dairy, gluten, sodas and processed foods overall.

    Costa Rica’s diet is high in fat?
    As opposed that of that of the American diet; which is comprised of sugary breakfast cereals, fried chicken, and carbohydrates that are breaded soaked in butter and fried in rancid oil. Just a bunch of processed crap, and because the label reads “fat free” It claims territory in your fridge.
    Please tell me where you’re from… such a place where only leaves and berries are eaten.
    ..Ok tiger that’s enough. You’re an idiot, for the most part at least. Costa Ricans do not use lard, you are confusing us with the mexicans. Please, don’t charm us. We’re allready proud of of soccer team, so there’s no need to spoil us.
    Lard usage is fairly rare, if at all it’s made it’s way into your christmas tamales, that was just personal preference.
    Name me one place on this earth that hasn’t a Mcdonalds and i’ll apologize to you. Just because american fast food chains have consumed the cobblestone streets of San Jose does not mean it’s cuisine dominates our tastes.
    Ticos rather have a home cooked meal of gluten and dairy free goodness, than a zionist cheeseburger, ANY DAY!
    Look around, the blind see…
    have you ever seen more than a handful of overweight ticos?
    alright then, I’ve got a continent to go conquer..

    It good to talk from our own perspectives, but what should really count is scientific studies regarding obesity in Costa Rica.


    In this article for example, Obesity is regarded as a Public health problem.

    On this other it is explained how Obesity indexes are going up in alarming proportions
