Fat Flush Tips & Tricks

Fat flushes aim to stimulate the liver and enhance its fat-burning capabilities. Ann Gittleman contrived the fat flush diet, which encourages eating foods conducive to flushing fat from the body for quick weight loss results, Gittleman says in her book "The Fat Flush Plan." There are several tips and tricks to help you fight the bulge and reach your weight loss goal.

Add Fresh Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is a natural diuretic that encourages urination and elimination of toxin buildup and broken down fat, Jonny Bowden says in the book "Living the Low-Carb Life." Lemon is also high in vitamin C, which helps bolster the immune system for optimal weight loss. Gittleman suggests adding fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your beverages, salads and poultry to garner its cleansing and fat-flushing benefits.

Ground Flaxseed

Flaxseed is an excellent source of dietary fiber, which is necessary for purging partially digested food from the intestinal tract for weight loss. This food is also high in omega-3 fatty acids, which help to prevent heart and arterial disease as it helps scrub the arteries of cholesterol plaque, according to Nancy Dunne and William Slater in the book "The Natural Diet Solution." Flaxseed also contains prussic acid, which helps to improve digestion. Since the body cannot digest whole flaxseed, the trick is to grind it up and sprinkle it on your salads, soups and beverages.

Hydrate

To properly flush fat from the body, it is imperative to be properly hydrated. MayoClinic.com recommends drinking eight, 8-oz. glasses of water each day to keep your fluid levels optimal. During exercise, it is exceedingly important to replenish lost water from perspiration. Gittleman suggests using purified water to eliminate bacteria, parasites, rust and dirt that may be present in tap water, which can inhibit your weight loss endeavors.
