This type of diet is meant to increase metabolism, cleanse and support the liver flush your system, and lose fat. The Fat Flush Diet (or foods that burn fat) has three phases and allows only specific foods and drinks. Phase 1 is a 2 week quick start that limits daily calories to 1100 – 1200. Phase 2 adds carbs, increases calories to 1500 and is followed until you reach your target weight. And Phase 3 is a “lifestyle eating plan” that adds dairy products and even more carbs.
Below you will seek some foods you can and cannot eat, associated with foods that burn fat.
These foods that burn fat, desire two tablespoons of flaxseed oil a day because it’s a wonderful source of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids.
The list of allowed fruits consist of 1 apple, orange, nectarine or peach, 1/2 grapefruit, 2 plums, 6 strawberries, 10 cherries and 1 cup of berries. This diet allows two portions daily.
Dieters are allowed to eat up to 8 ounces a day of lean protein including fish, lean beef, veal, lamb, and skinless turkey or chicken. They’re also allowed up to two eggs a day. Lactose-free, high-protein whey powders can be included in the diet as well, and eating tofu up to two times a week can also be recommended as foods that burn fat, if you wish.
“I thought ‘clean eating’ was devouring cupcakes while mopping the floor…”
Veggies are unlimited as long as you stick with the choices in the actual ‘Fat Flush Plan’ (foods that burn fat) book, which I’m sure you can get off of the internet somewhere, or in a book store.
The list includes: asparagus, green beans, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, spinach, collard greens, kale, romaine lettuce, escarole, arugula, parsley, onions, green and red bell peppers, mushrooms, radishes, mung bean and alfalfa sprouts, okra, tomatoes, watercress, red or green leaf lettuce, zucchini, yellow squash, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and garlic.
You’re also allowed one carrot and three olives.
Dieters are required to drink eight glasses of cranberry water (cranberry juice and water mixture) every day. This is a key element for cleansing the body. A ‘long life cocktail’ is to be consumed twice a day, which was developed by a holistic nutritionist. That nutritionist states that the cranberry water and flaxseed mixture increases elimination and helps balance hormones. One ‘cheat’ is allowed: 1 cup of organic coffee.
“Dear diet, It’s not me, it’s you. I don’t think it’s going to work out between us. You are boring, tasteless, and I can’t stop cheating on you.”
According to a holistic nutritionist, these herbs that can be added to the foods that burn fat are used freely because they help boost metabolism: cayenne, dried mustard, cinnamon, ginger, dill, garlic, cloves, bay leaves, parsley, apple cider vinegar and cumin. The only sweetener allowed is Stevia Plus because it does not affect blood sugar and it contains prebiotics.
“Rather then going on a diet, I’m hoping to get some sort of horrible stomach ailment.”
Phase one does not allow trans fats, caffeine, soda, alcohol, aspartame, sugar, many spices, yeast-related vinegar, oils (except flaxseed oil), fats, grains, bread, cereal, starchy veggies and dairy products.
Two servings of carbs (whole grain bread, sweet potato, peas, carrots and butternut or acorn squash) are added during Phase 2. In Phase 3, more carb choices (brown rice, beans, potatoes, corn, whole grain pasta), dairy products (yogurt, cheese) and a limited amount of salts are added to foods that burn fat.
