Fat Flush is targeted towards cleansing the liver. Liver is considered as the fat regulator in the body. This diet detoxifies the liver enabling the body to burn more fat and lose weight. Special attention is given to sleep and hydration levels for optimum results.
The Fat Flush Plan is both a detox diet and a weight loss diet. The idea is to provide all the necessary ingredients to boost metabolism, reduce water retention, and promote fat loss.
The Fat Flush Diet has 3 phases
Phase 1 – Fat Flush (2 weeks): This is a restrictive phase of between 1100-1200 calories per day. It is a cleansing program to encourage weight loss by giving the liver support and nourishment.The intention here is to “lose bloating” – which refers to reducing water retention as well as some fat loss. In this phase you are not allowed to eat; margarine, alcohol, sugar, oils or fat, grains, bread, cereal, starchy vegetables, dairy products. Even the herbs and spices are restricted to a small list.
Phase 2 – Ongoing Fat Flush: Phase 2 of Fat Flush Diet includes more food choices, including the option of adding back a ‘friendly’ carbohydrate each week while checking for any adverse reaction.
Here the calorie allowance is lifted – to 1200-1500 calories.
Phase 3 – The maintenance phase or The Lifestyle Eating Plan: Essentially a weight maintenance phase, with a caloric intake of 1500 calories or over aimed at increasing your vitality for life. Some starchy carbohydrates are gradually re-introduced, along with gluten-free grains like corns, soyabean, millet, and some dairy (maximum of 2). These foods are added back one at a time to gauge your body’s reaction.
The program contains a significant exercise component varying between 20 to 40 minutes of exercise per day, depending on the phase. This is typically low-impact (walking) and strength training (lifting weights) is also on the list (twice a week).
Drawback of Fat Flush Diet
- The lower calorie levels could have the affect of slowing down metabolism rather than speeding it up.
- The calorie levels of phase 1 (or 2) will not be able to support a strong exercise regimen
Review of Fat Flush Diet
No conclusive proof that liver controls fat in our body. Being a low calorie diet and having lots of food restriction will make you lose weight in any case..
