Fat Flush Water

As many of you already know, the past month I've been on a journey to eating healthier, exercising and getting more water into my system.

I had already cut out diet soda last year and was drinking only water, but the older I get the harder it is to lose weight, it just seems that your body comes to a screeching halt and nothing you do gets that weight off.

I've been looking and researching and last week I found the Fat Flush Water.

This water was first featured on The Biggest Loser and it's also been featured on the Dr. Oz show by nutritional coach Kym Lyon as part of her 10-day Ultimate Plan to to Trim Fat for Good.

I love fruit flavored water, so this water recipe was something I really looked forward to.  I just started today and I am enjoying the flavor, the longer it sits, the better it tastes.

According to Kim Lyons......

Fat Flush Water is simple to make and tastes great. Besides its main ingredient of water, the Fat Flush contains grapefruit that’s loaded with vitamin C to help your body turn fat into fuel. The tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, stabilizes blood sugar, and stimulates genes to burn fat. Cucumber helps you feel full and acts as a natural diuretic, which means less bloating and water retention. And lastly, it has peppermint, which is not only refreshing but also promotes better digestion and stomach calm. Make a big pitcher of Fat Flush Water every morning. The longer it sits, the better it will taste.

Ingredients per pitcher

Water
1 slice grapefruit
1 tangerine
½ cucumber, sliced
2 peppermint leaves
Ice


Directions: Combine ingredients in a large pitcher. Drink at least one 8 ounce glass three times a day before each meal for 10 days straight.


So, one glass before breakfast, one before lunch and one before dinner.  But since I only drink water anyway, I'm drinking this water  not only before meals but during the day.  It really is refreshing :)

Oh and according to Kim Lyons you can make iced tea this way too, just add a bag or two of tea to the water and you'll end up with a Tropical Tea.

I'll have to try that tomorrow, I think it will taste magnificent :)

EDIT:  Here is a video from Kim Lyon's explaining how to make the water.

  3. Do you leave the fruit in pieces or juice it? I'm not sure what to do on this one.

    1. Fruit is sliced except tangerine.

  4. I read the fine print under the photo and it says the recipe is per 8 oz. serving, so if you made a pitcher of this, you'd have to increase the ingredients accordingly.

    It sounds good.

  5. It looks great, but even a small amount of grapefruit or grapefruit juice makes me break out in hives. Any ideas for alternative?
