"Super" FAT FLUSH Water

Submitted by: SHAKTIDAISY2011

Introduction

Yes, that is the real name. The fat flush water was first introduced by Kim Lyons, who presented 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, Ĺ of a cucumber (sliced), 2 peppermint leaves, and ice. Mix together in and enjoy. 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. While this concoction is pretty awesome by itself, I've added Chia seeds to this recipe and turned it into a SUPER fat flush water.

Why are Chia seeds so SUPER? Well, the Chia Seed is a dieterís dream come true. The tiny, healthy seeds can be made to taste like whatever you want, and their unique gelling action keeps you feeling full for hours. Google Chia seeds to see the FULL benefits of them. They are definitely a super food not to be ignored.

In conclusion, original recipe is Clark Kent...I've added Chia seeds and turned it into Super Man. Enjoy ~ Daisy

    I'm confused. Is this supposed to be a snack or just water? Should you really be adding the nutrition for the flavorings since you're not eating them? I realize it has a lot of fiber with the chia seed adjustment, but still, I would rather get my water and fiber at a lower calorie and carb count. - 3/20/13

  • Can one just keep adding water to this each day for a couple days then eat the stuff? It seems like a VERY expensive drink if you waste all that food every day. That kind of ingredients is not in my food budget since I would be the only one who would even drink it. - 9/14/13
