Just as your car's filters need periodic changing to keep your car running smooth, our liver is our bodies human filter. Periodically, it also needs a good cleaning. The first two weeks of August, I did just this with the FAT FLUSH detox diet. Thus the letter "F" this week is for FAT FLUSH.
During the two weeks you give up coffee, tea, salt, pepper, sugar and all carbs and dairy products. You replace your normal liquids with a mix of unsweetened, undiluted cranberry juice and water. 64 oz a day. One cup of hot lemon juice (1/2 lemon to Cup of water).
Make your liver happy!
You have a daily menu of lean meat, veggies, fruits. You are never hungry as you get three healthy meals, meals a day plus fruit snacks during the day.
The result of my 2 week detox was feeling great (once I got over my caffeine headache) and lost 10 pounds with out feeling hungry once.
I plan to do this twice a year. Then slowly adding back in the things you've given up to maintain the weight loss.
