Fat Flushing smoothies 1,200 ways.
Smoothies are shaking up America!
At last count, there are over 6,000 smoothie shops throughout the country, and consumption was up more than 80% within the past five years. Whatever variation of the Fat Flush program you may be following, here’s a handy dandy chart to get you shaking up things yourself right at home.
Start with a helping of your favorite “clean” protein powder (I love Fat Flush Body Protein and/or Fat Flush Whey Vanilla/Chocolate), then mix it up with enzyme-rich fruit, soluble and insoluble fiber-rich seeds, plus, skinny essential fats from flax or fish oil to target belly fat and hormonal weight gain.These fatty acid containing oils interfere with hunger-revving hormones that bind to the brain receptor sites.
But, it’s the protein component that offers lots of surprising slimming perks. According to UCLA researchers, plant proteins, like the pea and brown rice found in Fat Flush Body Protein, are natural appetite suppressants that fill you up for four hours. And whey is the lean muscle mass secret of successful bodybuilders for years. That’s because whey protein contains high amounts of the branched chain amino acids – leucine, isoleucine and valine– to counter the effects of the hunger hormone grhelin and lower cortisol, a major factor in fat storage. It’s the high leucine content that’s the real secret of the hormone-free, nondenatured Fat Flush Whey Protein which contains a whopping 1, 775 mg of leucine in just one scoop.
Mix and match your favorites in the chart in this basic recipe:

Tip: For a “dandy” green delight, throw in a bunch of spinach, arugula, kale or dandelion leaves. First thing in the morning, the combination of fruits and green leafy veggies seem to digest just fine.
