Hello Fat Flush Dieters:

Can anyone share with me your first 2 weeks on fat flush? How much weight did you lose? Did you follow the plan to a T? What helps? Idea

My husband and I are just about following the diet layed out in Ms. Gittleman's book to a T. Except, I am more consistent about the lemon water in am and pm as well as the 8 cups of cran-water than my hubby. He, however, has not cheated at all, whereas I've had many chocolate covered altoids, luncheon meat (no other choice), several pieces of chocolate candies at work, and a few salted almonds yesterday. Other than that, I've stuck to the diet, fixing the recipes in the back of the book, eating lots of leafy greans and colorful veggies with the flaxoil/apple cider vinegar/lemon dressing as well as fixing eggs every morning. We cook everything in low-sodium broth and only buy stuff with no-salt added and no-sugar added. It's been 10 days and I've lost 8 pounds and can fit more of my clothes than I did before. My hubby has lost over 10 pounds and has noticed his pants aren't so tight. I feel like I'm getting my body shape back. However, we both feel hungry all the time! We miss our carbs and are not used to portioning ourselves. Its been real hard, I have to admit. I've never spent so much time cooking and preparing in my life! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks for two people every day! My husband is the one who usually does most of the cooking in our house, but since on this diet, I've taken over. He did thank me the other day for all my hard work, but I don't think he will move to Phase II after this two weeks is over. He will probably modify the Fat Flush diet to suit his needs. When he diets he preffers to eat healthy microwave meals for lunch and canned soups for dinner with protein shakes while going to the gym and working out hard. Don't know how next week will go, but I like the results so far!

Sounds like you guys are doing great! It can be difficult to be making all the food but why not have your husband make at least one or even two of the meals. I find it's helpful when I feel I don't have to do all the preparing, also since we are both benifiting from eating so healthy! I have been on detox diets before and find the most challenging thing is to stay on them and keep eating healthy when there are so many temptation, (even bread and carbs) seem to make me gain weight. Shakes are a great meal replacement when on the go, but I would be careful about microwaving food too often. Studies show that cooking this way not only kills much of the nutrition in the food, but the radiation can stay in the food and in the body. A better way might be to steam or lightly sautee food!

I did the fat flush for 2 weeks without cheating and lost 7 pounds! Those first days were difficult as I was giving up coffee, sugar, etc. and getting headaches, but after that felt pretty good. I've fallen off the diet for a week and gained back 1 lb. Starting back up again tomorrow. Hoping to lose 20 - 30 total. I work in the restaurant business and the temptations are huge...and constant! I am new to this site and encouraged to see how well the diet is working for people, hopefully this will help keep me on track. Been trying to get a girlfreind to do it with me, but it is such a strict diet that it's hard to convince people. Some tips: You need enough time in the AM for the lifelong cocktail, hot lemon water and smoothie (or eggs) For me, I do the first 2 before my shower and have a smoothie just before I leave. Also, put the flax oil in the smoothie because it can be hard to incorporate into other foods, I don't particularly like the taste. I am a late night snacker, so I save a fruit serving for after dinner to try and take care of my sweet tooth. Good luck! It's not always easy, but the results are good and I think it is much healthier than other diets I've tried, like Atkins.

This is a great time to make your own cranwater while they are in season. I get a bag of cranberries for 99 cents here so you are saving bundles; it is however, a little time consuming.
