Dr Oz’s Fat Flush Water and Fat Flush Water To Go!

Doesn’t that look JUST REFRESHING?? I live in Arizona and it is starting to get warmer here. Case in point it was 70 degrees at about 7 this morning. So..yeah…I need something to drink. Since I am broke most of the time I am happy that it is fairly affordable to do.

Simple…you make a pitcher of this.  The longer it sits the better it tastes.  I believe you are supposed to have this for 10 days (with meals as well) and it helps to detox your body and burn fat (added bonus)!  My Cousin and My Daddy both told me about it…it looks so pretty and refreshing I’m going to the store to get the ingredients..  Now…from what I understand you can eat the fruit in the water if you wish! That would be added fiber and calories. “I got SO FAT eating all those FRUITS and VEGETABLES!”, said NO ONE EVER!  🙂  My way of saying I really don’t care about the calories from eating a tangerine, a cucumber, a grapefruit, mint, and water. WHO would get fat off that?? May is upon us now and that means warmer weather and Robin’s 44th birthday is around the corner.  I at least want to be glowing with a little health by then!

I will even post Kim Lyons‘ 10 Fat Flush Plan with the recipe (Courtesy of Fast Track To Fat Loss)

The 10 Day RULES

Rule 1: Super Fat Flushing Water
Cleansing your system is one of the best ways to jump-start your body’s fat burning ability. To cleanse your system, try my special 5-ingredient Fat Flush Water. It’s simple to make, it tastes great and the science backs up its powerful benefits.

Besides the main ingredient water, the Fat Flush contains grapefruit that’s loaded with vitamin C to help your body turn fat into fuel. The tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, stabilizes blood sugar, and stimulates genes to burn fat. Cucumber helps you feel full and acts as a natural diuretic, which means less bloating and water retention. And lastly, it has mint leaves, which is not only refreshing but also promotes better digestion and stomach calm.

Make a big pitcher every morning. Drink at least one 8 ounce glass three times a day before each meal for 10 days straight.

Fat Flush Water
Ingredients for one large pitcher:

Water
1 grapefruit sliced (can substitute with lemon)
1 tangerine (can substitute with oranges)
1 large cucumber, sliced
10-20 mint leaves
Ice

Directions
Combine ingredients in a large pitcher and enjoy all day. Make a new pitcher daily.
Note-Save the citrus for breakfast the next day and munch on the cucumbers before bed instead of tossing!

Rule 2: Choose Colorful Carbs Over Brown and White
Don’t get me wrong, whole grains are incredibly healthy, this is only ten days! To jump-start your fat loss, eat your carbs from vegetables for 10 days. Colorful vegetables and verdant veggies, such as spinach, broccoli, green beans, kale, and zucchini are loaded with fiber, minerals and vitamins.

They are also very low on the glycemic index. Eating carbs that are low on the glycemic index can help stabilize blood sugar levels which helps prevents fat storage. Another bonus of filling up on veggies is they will keep your calorie intake low, allowing you to create a larger caloric deficit.

The options listed below mimic the grain dishes you crave most, such as rice, pasta and bread, so you stay full and satisfied longer.

Zucchini pasta: Using a vegetable peeler cut the zucchini into lengthwise ribbons. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil or coconut oil pan, add zucchini ribbons and stir for 3 minutes until the zucchini turns translucent. Top with a healthy tomato sauce and enjoy. Another fun pasta substitute is spaghetti squash.

Lettuce or Nori (seaweed) wraps: Swap your sandwich bread for lettuce leaves or nori paper. Wrap around turkey slices, colorful cut-up veggies, salmon, etc.

Rule 3: Super Spice Your Protein
Mix up a delicious rub containing three super spices that also add great flavor to your favorite protein dishes. This tasty mixture combines chili powder with capsaicin, the substance that gives chili peppers their spicy kick. The turmeric contains curcumin, and mustard seed. Using spices is a great way to flavor your food with out adding calories. Feel free to add as many spices as you like to this mix, but use these three power house spices as often as possible.

Spice Rub
Ingredients:
Chili powder
Turmeric
Mustard Seeds

Directions:
Mix up 2 tablespoons worth (equal parts of each spice) and rub all over lean protein, such as fish, chicken, tofu or bison. This spice rub will add lots of flavor and set your metabolism on fire. Enjoy for 10 days.

Rule 4: Snack Skinny
Snack yourself skinny with my three favorite recipes: cauliflower popcorn, kale chips, and roasted garbanzo beans. These skinny snacks will kick the munchies while giving you a nutritional boost without extra calories! Snacking is an important part of losing fat. The secret is to “snack skinny” and skip the processed “Franken foods!”

Cauliflower Popcorn
This tasty nosh is actually roasted cauliflower fashioned into “popcorn” bites. Cauliflower supports your liver’s cleansing abilities to help you metabolize fat. This snack also contains nutritional yeast, which is a complete protein and high in B-complex vitamins. Eat twice a day to satisfy midmorning and late afternoon cravings.

Ingredients:
2 heads of cauliflower
1 tbsp olive oil
Nutritional yeast, hemp seeds, or other spices to taste

Directions
Cut up cauliflower into popcorn-size florets. Mix with some pepper, olive oil and sea salt or sprinkle with nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor or hemp seeds for a boost of protein. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 420 °F.

Kale chips (follow exact same instructions to make roasted garbanzo beans)

Lightly coat kale chips with sesame seed oil and sprinkle with season salt. Massage oil into the kale leaves with clean hands. Spread a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake at 250 degrees for about an hour or until crisp.

I hope you all enjoy these super healthy, fat-burning snacks!

Ingredients per 8 oz serving

Water
1 slice grapefruit
1 tangerine
½ cucumber, sliced
2 peppermint leaves

So there you go! Some really tasty looking water that is….drumroll please…PALEO FRIENDLY from what I can see!! Yay!  I can still do the Hunter/Gatherer lifestyle until July (hardcore…I wanna celebrate with a Mexican Cruise 🙂 that means in a swimsuit)
