5 delicious Fat flushing drinks and The main ingredient is WATER!

I know that water is good for you and all, but to be honest, I hate it! I literally force myself to drink water. I'm always adding different favors to enhance the taste of my water. Although I must say most of the ingredients I add has extra junk like sugar and calories. I finally found a resolution to my dislike of water when my co-worker introduced me to adding natural flavor such as fruit! She told me to add lemon, limes, oranges etc to my water and it will give it a light, not so overpowering flavor that is not only good, but healthy too! Why didn't I think of that? I tried and absolutely loved it. No more nasty flavored powder or sugar packets in my water. Since then I stumbled across an article that really has increased my desire to drink more water. It was used on the biggest loser. Check it out! I would have never thought to actually add cranberry juice!

Check out these 5 fat-flushing drinks that will have you on your way to a slim trim body in no time.
Fat Flush Water. Yes, that is the real name. The fat flush water was introduced by Kim Lyons, who introduced this concoction on The Biggest Loser, combined with other weight loss tips. The drink is comprised of 8 oz. water, 1 slice of grapefruit,1 tangerine, ½ of a cucumber (sliced), 2 peppermint leaves, and ice. Mix together in and enjoy. You should consume at least 8 ounces, at least three times a day. Kim adds that this drink tastes better the longer it sits. The vitamin C turns fat into fuel, while the tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, and the cucumber makes you feel full. Try this fat flush water for the next 10 days and see how great you feel. Below you will find a more detailed recipe for Kim Lyon’s fat flush drink!
You CAN eat the ingredients if you so choose, but they are mainly there for the taste.   Drink 8 ounces before each meal 3 x’s a day for 10 days.

Fat Flushing Recipes! Flush Fat With These 5 Delicious Drinks!
Recipe type: Fat Flush Drink
Author: Kim Lyons
Prep time: 10 mins
Total time: 10 mins
Serves: 1
This is a great concoction to mix up and drink three times a day or more if you choose! This recipe is for one serving ONLY.
  • Ingredients, per 8-ounce serving
  • Water
  • 1 slice grapefruit
  • 1 tangerine
  • ½ cucumber, sliced
  • 2 peppermint leaves
  • Ice – as much as you like
  1. Wash grapefruit, tangerine cucumber and peppermint leaves. Slice cucumber, grapefruit and tangerine (or peel). Combine all ingredients (fruits, vegetables, 8 oz water, and ice) into a large pitcher.
  2. Stir & Enjoy!
Triple the entire recipe to prepare enough for the entire day! This recipe makes one 8 ounce serving, triple this recipe if you intend to make enough for the entire day. 8 ounces of the fat flush drink, three times a day = 24 ounces needed for entire day.
Again, you CAN eat the ingredients if you so choose, but they are mainly there for the taste. Drink 8 ounces before each meal 3 x’s a day for 10 days.

Cranwater. We all know water is a diuretic and great for the entire body, but combined with cranberry juice, it’s a great fat and water flushing drink. Combine 56 ounces of water and 8 ounces of 100% cranberry juice, mix together and drink throughout the day. Make sure it is 100% cranberry juice and nothing else added. The cranberry juice contains high levels of organic acids, and when consumed on a regular basis may help your body actually dissolve fatty deposits.
Grapefruit Juice. Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice is one of the best things for your body. Grapefruits contain high amounts of Vitamin C, which helps your body detoxify naturally. This drink helps your liver detoxify and can do the job it was meant to do – detoxify and metabolize your body!
Water. Yes, we know what a shock! Plain old water! But, truly your body needs plenty of water to facilitate the breakdown of fat in your body. Drinking AT LEAST your weight in ounces of water will help flush out toxins and keep you energized, enabling your body to perform at it’s best. Keep in mind, drinking tons of water is not the answer to losing weight, you still need a proper diet and exercise regime, but it will keep your body clean and pure and allow all of your organs to work properly and do the job they were intended to do, instead of working overtime to keep your body going.
Green Tea. Green tea is one of the most famous fat flushing drinks. Like cranberry juice, green tea is extremely high in antioxidants. It is known for helping many dieters lose fat quicker than usual when consumed 2-3 times a day. Green tea not only flushes fat, but also is packed with other helpful benefits for your body.
These 5 drinks can be consumed throughout the day to help you flush fat quickly along with the proper diet and exercise program. These drinks won’t work miracles alone, but are a great start and will help increase the benefits of a healthy diet and cardio regimen.
If you have allergies to fruit or citrus fruits do not consume these Fat Flushing drinks. If you are taking any medications, do not consume Fat Flushing Drinks until you consult your physician to get approval.
