Fat Flush Plan Diet - How I Did What I Did
This is my success story about the Fat Flush Diet Plan. It really is the easiest diet I have ever been on. Since I finished the 2 week, Phase 1 of the diet, back in June 2011, I have added back lowfat/ff dairy & some low carb bread/tortillas that I get from Walmart - Healthy Life Whole Wheat Bread, 35 cals, 5 net carbs and La Banderita Soft Taco Wheat Tortillas, 81 cals, 5 net carbs. Both taste good. I have also been having a couple of drinks a week. Haven't gained any of the weight back. I will keep eating like this from now on, it is too easy not to! ** Please remember, this is my diet story. Before following any diet please seek the advice of YOUR doctor or dietitian.

The Fat Flush Plan
Ann Louise Gittleman
The book came out in early 2000. A few different ways to find out about the Fat Flush Plan ~ To read more about the diet, get the book from your local library. ~ Also, Amazon.com sells cheap, used copies. ~ You can Google it to see what people say about the diet. That's what I did & after sifting through the posts I decided to give it try. Gittleman also has a cookbook (I bought that) & a few other books (one on men's health, bought that, too)
- The Fat Flush Plan Cookbook modifies her original diet a bit. It's a little less strict, but the way I changed the original diet to fit the way I eat, it came out around the same.
- She has a page on Facebook. I am a fan & get cool updates from her. They also have Fat Flush Fan pages, too.
- I followed the diet sorta closely. I just took regular vitamins & used bottled lemon juice. I did get the Black Current Seed Oil capsules from Whole Foods. I already had flax oil & regular stevia. Trader Joes has pretty cheap Ground Flax Meal & Unsweetened Cranberry Juice.
- I like the Vanilla Whey Powder, Walmart has the cheapest I've found.
- I didn't really follow the recipes, just cooked with/ate the basic foods that are allowed for the different phases of the diet.
- For PHASE 1 ~ I ate 1 or 2 eggs a day (sometimes as breakfast & sometimes as a snack), 1 or 2 shakes a day (sometimes as breakfast & sometimes as a snack - I usually made mine w/V8 VFusion Juice & skipped one of the fruit servings), unlimited veggies from the list, 4 oz of meat/fish with lunch & dinner. I drank all the liquids & had tea in the morning. I used Pam for cooking, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray 'butter' to top the veggies, Braggs Amino Acids (basically a low sodium soy sauce) for flavor & ground dulce (a type of seaweed) instead of salt. Sometimes I would blend the flax oil, 3 olives, a hard boil egg, lemon juice, water & cayenne pepper to make a spicy salad dressing. I bought regular meat/fish (not organic) I did weigh the meat/fish to get 4 oz servings, but I didn't measure out the veg. I just made huge salads, or sides of veg, from the approved list of veggies.
- It really is the easiest diet and I was never hungry, especially since I modified it to work for me. I assume if I had followed it to the letter I might have lost a lot more. I was thrilled with 8 pounds in 10 days.
- If you can't get a hold of the book to read, here are some links to give you basic info about what the diet is about. The Livestrong site has a list of the foods allowed.
