The Fat Flush


The Fat Flush Kit, formulas designed by Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman, a well-known nutritionist, consists of three products to facilitate weight loss and to support a healthy body as part of her overall Fat Flush Weight Loss Plan. The three different products address three separate aspects of maintaining good health, the first is meant to meet the body’s basic nutrient needs, the second is meant to reduce inflammation and to keep skin moisturized, and the third is meant to aid in healthy weight loss.

The Fat Flush asserts that the keys to obesity are liver toxicity, waterlogged tissues, fear of eating fat, excess insulin, and stress. The book writen by nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman is filled with information along with her own studies which conclude the books theme that the above mentioned keys to obesity are things you can overcome and get control of. This plan is more about improving your overall health, digestion, and the effectiveness of your body's functions

Diet Keys

The first product in the Fat Flush Kit is a Dieter’s Multi-vitamin and Mineral. This is a fairly standard combination of vitamins and minerals to meet the body’s nutritional needs during dieting. Most of them exceed the recommended daily allowance, including folic acid. The second product is GLA-90. This is 90mg of GLA, a substance which contains the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid from black current seed oil. This helps to reduce excess inflammation and helps to keep skin moisturized. The third product is the Weight Loss Formula, designed to stabilize blood sugar levels, provide energy, and promote healthy fat metabolism. In addition to various vitamins and minerals, the formula contains L-carnitine, Lecithin, Lepis Plant enzymes, dandelion root, milk thistle seed, Oregon grape root, and whole turmeric, all designed to meet the goals stated above.

Fat Flush Diet

Here are the parts you dont want to hear: No white flour, white sugar, margarine, vegetable shortening, artificial sweeteners, or caffeine. The diet emphasizes essential oils (e.g., flaxseed and GLA), protein (eight ounces or more, plus two eggs a day), vegetables, thermogenic spices (e.g., ginger and cayenne), water, and diuretic beverages (eight glasses/day of diluted, unsweetened cranberry juice). In its first two-week phase, the plan is a rigid, low calorie (1,100-1,200 calories/day), low-carb (no grains or starchy vegetables) diet. Phase two lets you increase your calories to 1,500 and add two "friendly carbs." Phase three, the "lifestyle program," moderately adds more dairy, carbs, and calories. Gittleman promotes walking and recommends strength training in phase three.

There are customer testimonials to attest the success of the product and the program in general. The ongoing support that can be found on the website is another attractive feature of the plan and given physician approval; it is one that is worth trying out.

Dieter’s will want to be sure and include a healthy eating plan, exercise, and may want to include a weight-loss supplement which may speed up the fat flush process. Choose one which includes a fat-burner and an appetite suppressant for the very best results.
