Keep reading for all the details on this increasingly popular, and relatively easy and delicious, weight loss plan.Fat Flush Basics
The Fat Flush Diet consists of three phases:
- Phase One - Very restrictive calories (10-day)
- Phase Two – “Steady as she goes” (until you reach your desired weight)
- Phase Three – Lifetime weight maintenance
The Fat Flush Diet also requires consistent exercise, but only about 20-40 minutes a day, which is the minimum you should be getting anyway. 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 brilliantly. 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 and vinegars) with the intention of relieving your body of bloating and giving your liver a rest. Phase One lasts two weeks and generally brings about some encouraging weight loss. There is a cranberry water drink combined with ground flax seeds to encourage elimination and a hot lemon drink to flush out cellulite. You bounce for 5 minutes each day on one of those small trampolines to encourage activity within your lymph system and detoxify your glands.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. By this time, I read her entire book "The Fat Flush Diet" and found it extremely interesting to learn about how the foods you eat affect you and your organs on the cellular level. It is scientifically proven and good common sense and that's why it works! 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. She allows you to reintroduce several friendly carbs so you can practice healthy eating throughout your life.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. Think of it like a 10-day program, stick to it, and by the end of the program, you will feel and look better. Unlike many 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 may not be easy at first, but it is perfect for those self-inspired spurts of focus when you’re motivated to be disciplined for a few weeks. If you can get that far, the results you will see and the knowledge you will have gained will inspire you to maintain your weight loss and eat foods that help you lead a healthy life.
