This somewhat controversially-named diet plan is by Olivia Strait. We couldn’t find out much background information about her credentials, but we’ve seen reports that she’s a 25-year veteran in the health and fitness industry. We’ve not been able to find any information about any relevant qualifications she may have.
A core part of the plan involves consuming additional quantities of certain exotic fruit. According to the introduction to the plan, she stumbled upon the key components of this diet by accident after speaking to a sprightly 80-year-old from Colombia. We do suspect that the original name for this diet was the Exotic Weight Loss Plan, but was changed to “erotic” to be a little more eye-catching. There is a slight nod in the book to losing weight making you feel sexier, but if you’re expecting a weight-loss program that involves a lot of erotic content you’ll be disappointed!
The plan is based around the concept of reducing the stress hormone cortisol in the body. Olivia states that increased cortisol levels can promote weight gain, and many of us are living with constant stress due to hectic modern lifestyles. There’s sound medical evidence to back this up – increased levels of cortisol helps cause higher insulin levels which means blood sugar drops and the body craves sugary, fatty foods. This can be a difficult cycle to break if your home or work life means stress is frequently present.
To combat this, the Erotic Weight Loss plan includes a few key actions you must take and has several ideas for naturally reducing stress, increasing the amount of exercise you take and living healthily. Underpinning everything is the consumption of certain exotic fruits which Olivia says will dramatically reduce your stress hormone levels and reverse the weight-gaining tendencies that the increased cortisol causes. Sadly we’re not able to reveal the details of the exact fruits that the plan recommends for copyright reasons, but we can say that they are not so exotic that they aren’t available at most large, quality supermarkets.
Another key component to this plan that we can examine is the strict instruction to always sleep naked. This may also contribute to the “erotic” name in the plan. However, Olivia claims that sleeping naked reduces cortisol levels and this is backed up by research. If your body overheats while you sleep, researchers have measured negative effects such as balancing melatonin and growth hormone levels, improving skin condition and, yes, reducing cortisol levels.
The Erotic Weight Loss program states that the key is to combine consuming the specified fruits in the evening with naked sleeping. In addition, taking some moderate exercise during the day (such as walking or bicycling more often instead of taking the car) boosts these effects.
The core Erotic Weight Loss Program is delivered as a 95-page PDF download. This includes sections with motivation stories about successes Olivia’s personal fitness clients have had, the importance of sleeping naked, which foods to avoid, the importance of hydration, advice on where to buy and how to prepare food, “good” snacking, and a 10-minute workout guide. It also details the famous exotic (erotic?) fruits that can “make you skinny”.
In addition, you get 15 video guides with motivational words from the author, recipe guides, a workout video and more.
Finally, there’s an email address which links you directly to Olivia who promises 24/7 support and encouragement for her plan followers.

“The program comes off as a bit of a fad. In addition it appears to be a “quick fix” or some secret trick to help you lose lots of fat fast. The plan won’t work everyone.”

Summary: When you look beyond the gimmicky name, there’s a lot of good information in this plan. The underlying premise of reducing cortisol to help weight loss is sound, and will also improve your health and well-being in other ways. The moderate exercise routines are great for beginners and easy to follow, and Olivia’s motivational words can be genuinely helpful. Having said that, there’s not a lot of depth to the program and so advanced users might find it lacking. We would suggest this is better suited to beginners, particularly if you do have a stressful or very busy lifestyle.
This plan is easy to follow. No complicated meal plans and no high-energy workouts.
There are sound evidence-based ideas here to help reduce your stress hormones. This will have additional health benefits.
Good advice on where to buy your fruit and vegetables to get the most benefit from them, and also on healthy snacking.
This is a short plan and it won’t take you long to read the 95 pages and watch the videos so some might feel there’s a lack of substance. However, it does make it easier to revisit and dip into the program at any time.
Although offering 24/7 email support, the success of this plan is all down to you and your willpower. This isn’t a weight loss plan for those who aren’t already motivated to lose weight and live more healthily.
