Diet Profiler: The Fat Flush Diet
Want to detoxify your body, eliminate that bloated feeling and lose some weight at the same time? Well . . . ever heard of The Fat Flush Diet? Based on a book by Ann Louise Gittleman, the Fat Flush Diet is both a detoxification and weight loss plan focused on decreasing water retention, enhancing metabolism and encouraging fat loss. Will it work for you? Keep reading for all the details on this increasingly popular weight loss plan.
Fat Flush Basics
The Fat Flush Diet consists of three phases:
• Phase One - very restrictive calories
• Phase Two – “steady as she goes” until you reach your desired weight
• Phase Three – weight maintenance
The Fat Flush Diet also requires some regimented exercise, but only about 20-40 minutes a day. Exercise and eating right are a big part of staying healthy and keeping your weight in check and the Fat Flush Diet incorporates both of these elements.
The Three Phases
With so many false starts and tumbles off the wagon, we all wish we had a quick and definitive way to kick-start the weight loss process. The Fat Flush Diet is a great way to do just that.
As stated above, the Fat Flush Diet consists of three distinct phases:
Phase One – In this phase, you are to maintain a caloric intake of between 1100 and 1200 calories per day. You eliminate fatty foods from your diet (even some spices) with the intention of relieving your body of bloating. Phase One lasts two weeks and generally brings about some encouraging weight loss.
Phase Two – The only difference between Phases One and Two of The Fat Flush Diet is that in Phase Two you can raise your caloric intake to 1200 – 1500 calories per day until you reach your goal weight.
Phase Three – This part of The Fat Flush Diet is intended to help you stay at your goal weight, with a caloric intake of 1500 or more per day and an extended regimen of exercise.
Who is best suited to try this diet?
Any attempt at weight loss requires some dedication and willingness to work. The Fat Flush Diet is no exception. But, unlike many of the books and videos on how to lose weight, The Fat Flush Diet is one that is simple and includes both exercise and a balance of foods . . . which are always the signs of a successful diet.
However, the Fat Flush Diet (like many diet plans) assumes that the same diet can fit everyone. Fortunately, you can take the best of The Fat Flush Diet and still tune it to your specific needs.
The Fat Flush Diet isn’t easy, but may be perfect for those self-inspired spurts of focus that you have from time to time when you’re motivated to be disciplined for at least a few weeks. If you can get that far, and by utilizing The Fat Flush Diet as a catalyst, you can maintain your weight loss through exercise and a balanced diet as discussed in Phase Three.
