Whether your diet is vegan, vegetarian, raw, Paleo, low carb or you are a juice fan, there’s one thing we can agree upon. Our hunger for quick, clean, and easily digestible nutrition is insatiable.
Fat Flusher Christine O’Leary lost 139 pounds with our plant protein detox plan.
She melted 7 “waist inches” in two weeks with such a dramatic testimonial that she was featured in a cover story for First for Women magazine.
Based on the latest buzz, green smoothies have risen to the top as the easiest and healthiest meal in a glass that delivers super speedy results when it comes to weight loss and overall health.
No wonder smoothie books like The 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse and Superfood Smoothies continue to flood the market ever since the launch of the Fat Flush Smoothie Shakedown kickstart in 2010!
This is perfect news for those of us who still need to lose 5, 20, 50 or 100 pounds!
The Smoothie Shakedown–which now features some delicious green smoothie options–will help to flush out summer vacation toxins for a flatter belly and trimmed down body.
The healthy side-effects include stronger immunity, better digestion, increased energy, and improved blood sugar regulation.
Plus, you won’t be hungry for a good three to four hours if you choose the Fat Flush Body Protein powder as your smoothie mainstay because, it is not only GMO and heavy metal free (third party tested), but provides the research-backed plant-based combo of rice and yellow peas.
The product is sweetened with both low glycemic stevia and inulin, a potent prebiotic to feed the beneficial gut bacteria in the GI tract that help maintain a slim figure.
Green smoothies especially combine the best of detoxifying green foods with high protein. Cleansing greens like watercress, kale, Romaine lettuce, and arugula are packed with phytonutrients and beta-carotene, Vitamin K, folate, and chlorophyll that help support liver function and enhance the body’s ability to access stored body fat to be burned for energy.
Here are two of my fall favorites you can incorporate into your green Smoothie Shakedown regimen:
For those of you who have been using kale and spinach everyday, I think you’ll find these greens a nice change of pace. Researchers at William Patterson University in New Jersey analyzed 47 types of produce for 17 vital nutrients and found Watercress to contain even more nutrient-dense than kale, and arugula just so happens to be my favorite vegetable.
The belly-blasting fat ingredient is found in the seeds and oil which contain essential fatty acids that block hunger-promoting hormones from binding to brain receptor sites and target fat deposits. Of course, the ingredients should all be organic if possible and keep in mind that each recipe serves one.
1 small bunch of watercress
1 green apple, quartered and cored
1 lime, peeled and quartered

What if I told you that you could easily sleep through the night, overcome tiredness, and heal inflammatory conditions?
Insomnia, chronic fatigue and systemic inflammation are three of our most prevalent complaints in America these days.
And while diet, exercise, environmental toxins and stress are no doubt some of the underlying culprits, there is something more basic and fundamental than even the healthiest habits.
The solution is much closer and simpler than you can imagine. Continue reading →
“Darkness is as essential to our biological welfare, to our internal clockwork, as light itself,” writes Verlyn Klinkenborg in a fascinating National Geographic article.
Sleep scientists find that bathing our world in artificial light not only disrupts our body clocks but also disturbs the production of vital regulatory hormones—like melatonin.
In fact, a recent study from the University of Southern California showed that exposure to light from electronic devices like your Kindle or iPad for a mere two hours reduces melatonin levels by 22%. Continue reading →

There’s only just one concern that remains…cellulite! For most of us women, cellulite is an annoying aspect of getting older that we’d dearly love to get rid of.
But, there’s good news on the horizon.
Fat Flushers across the country have reported to me for years that simply by following my diet and fitness plans, they noticed that their cellulite simply seemed to disappear…in fact, many have nicknamed my Fat Flush Plan the “anti-cellulite diet!” Continue reading →
The lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump which means you need to move the lymph through its channels some other way.
As Joanie Greggains and I concur in The Fat Flush Fitness Plan, massage is one of the most effective ways to help your lymph move through its channels and nodes more efficiently, nourishing your tissues and making white blood cells–the mainstay of your immune system–available to your entire body.
Massage also stimulates your circulation, freeing toxins and waste products and carrying them down into the lymph system which then removes them from your body. Continue reading →
Last week’s blog was so popular, it inspired me to discuss another—more advanced lymph flow technique—that is perfect for summer beauty!
One of the most effective detox techniques, dry brush massage can help you achieve your weight loss goal by stimulating lymph flow, increasing circulation, and activating your skin’s oil-producing glands. Continue reading →
With temperatures soaring, many of us will be exercising indoors and utilizing the most effective exercise known to man: rebounding.
Let me share with you what fitness expert Joanie Greggains and I wrote in The Fat Flush Fitness Plan:
I am delighted to share a guest blog by my emotional eating expert, Dr. Denise Lamothe, author of The Taming of the Chew. I have come to regard Dr. Denise’s work with the utmost respect after seeing her in action all over the country.
Please let me know what you think of this excerpt:
“This excerpt from my latest book The Appetite Connection focuses on our emotions and the importance of “feeling good” to attract more “feel good” experiences. But, if we are physically depleted it is difficult to work on our emotional well-being. Continue reading →
Move over Mary’s Gone Crackers! There’s a new gluten-free cracker in town that’s made its debut and is just as crispy and satisfying as the best of them!
My Flax Snackers are a perfect nutritious and delicious starter for this weekend’s Fourth of July Celebration and are full of Omega-3 fiber from flax seeds. Flax seeds are uniquely satisfying and healthy because they supply lignans.
Lignans—which are 800 times more concentrated in flax seeds than in any other plant—are well recognized as mini miracle workers. They not only kill viruses but they also help to knock out type 2 diabetes, lower LDL cholesterol, and help to reverse atherosclerosis. Continue reading →
The most common everyday foods like wheat, dairy, corn, yeast, sugar, peanuts and soy can lead to weight loss resistance!
They create bloating and inflammation while inhibiting your ability to access stored body fat as fuel and tamp down metabolism.
And they are everywhere these days.
A young mother told me that she wasn’t sure what she would make for her daughter’s holiday party at preschool—in the class of eight, there was a child with a peanut allergy, a child with an egg allergy, another with a gluten allergy and one more with a milk allergy.
