Congratulations, you now have a great tool to jump start the new year with a
cleanse that will prime your system for FAT LOSS without starvation or headaches.
Your LIVER is your major fat burning organ. By cleansing, you will rid the liver and
your body of toxins that have been accumulated throughout the holidays, and you
will be primed to increase your fat loss in the New Year. On this Cleanse, you get to
eat foods, but you must follow the plan exactly and NOT eat any added sugar, salt,
dairy or processed foods and no alcohol. You start the day with your breakfast
drink upon waking and have your first shake within 30 minutes. Try to eat every
three hours to prevent a drop in your metabolism.

DO

Drink plenty of water or Fat Flushing green tea

Exercise moderately every day

Get restful sleep. Aim for 8 hours per night

Eat organic, unprocessed foods only

DON’T

Skip meals

Drink alcohol

Eat dairy

Add sugar or another sweetener

Eat out

Eat processed foods

Stop the program. If you mess up, just get back on!

Each day includes a breakfast smoothie, a lunch, a dinner, and your choice of snacks.  Drink plenty of fluids during the Cleanse. These can include water (flavored with lemon or other natural fruits or spices), caffeine free herbal teas or sparkling water.

You should also incorporate mild to moderate activity such as walking, swimming, yoga, Pilates or biking at a moderate pace for 30-45 minutes a day. The idea is to get moving so that your body releases toxins into the blood stream that can be eliminated through your largest organ; your skin, by sweating! But don’t overdo exercise during a Cleanse, as you will deplete your body too much!

Should you feel any headache or nausea during this program, it is a normal and natural feeling as the toxins enter your blood stream. Don’t be alarmed but drink extra fluids to speed up elimination and go easy on yourself! Your goal should be to have to visit the bathroom every 90 minutes to pee. Then you know you are flushing correctly.

You should also add a few NATURAL herbs to assist your detoxification:

Milk Thistle, 175 g., once per day

Dandelion Root, 400 mg, 1 capsule per day

Probiotics, 1 capsule per day

Astragalus, 450 mg. 1 capsule per day

Vitamin C, 1,000 mg 3 times per day

Take herbs as directed on the bottle and make sure to drink 8 oz. of water with the capsules.

Every day you can have a Mid-afternoon snack:

10 almonds or walnuts and a big glass of water with lemon

Make a large pitcher of this FAT FLUSHING TEA to drink every day:

In a large pitcher, combine 2 quarts brewed organic green tea (8 cups) with slices of orange, lemon, and lime to give it a citrusy-sweet flavor with no added sugar. Enjoy up to 1 pitcher a day. Serve over ice (or drink hot)

Every evening before bed:

1 organic chamomile tea bag

Directions

Add one cup water to a small saucepan, bring to a simmer, remove from heat and add one tea bag. Allow tea to steep for 3-5 minutes. In a quiet place, sip tea slowly and allow your body to relax without any distractions.
