I have 19 days left to lose 4.5 lbs... This is to help me hit my dietbet challenge weigh in goal and win some $$$!  I did the Fat Flush diet about a month ago and lost 12 pounds in two weeks.  I have kept over half of it off.  This really was a tough "diet" to follow for the first week, but the second week flew by.  So I am ready to go again.

Here's how the diet works.  Feel free to "steal" this and/or make it your own.

Rule #1: Eat ONLY the following:

You can have the following (per day):

Qty: 8 oz

Fish, Seafood, Lean Beef, Veal, Lamb, Skinless Turkey or Chicken, Whey*

*Whey: Choose lactose-free, high-protein whey powders

Qty: (up to) 2


Qty: Unlimited

Asparagus, green beans, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, carrots (one), cucumbers, daikon, eggplant, spinach, escarole, collard greens, kale, mustard greens, romain lettuce, arugula, radicchio, endive, parsley, onions, chives, bell peppers, jicama, mushrooms, olives (3), radishes, mung bean sprouts, okra, alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes, watercress, red or green loose-leaf lettuce, zucchini, yellow squash, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, and garlic

Qty: 2 portions

apple-small (1), grapefruit (1/2), orange-small (1), plums-medium (2), strawberries-large (6), cherries-large (10), nectarine (1), peach (1), pear (1), berries *blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries* (1 cup)

Qty: 1 tbsp

Flaxseed Oil

Cooking Oil:
Qty: As Needed
For the first two-week period you should avoid oils and fats of any kind other than the daily flaxseed oil and essential fatty acid supplement from GLA

Instead, use the following to cook your food in:

Any of the following (must be low sodium or no salt added):
Chicken Broth
Beef Broth
Vegetable Broth

Herbs & Spices:
Qty: To Taste

Cayenne, dried mustard, cinnamon, ginger, dill, garlic, anise, fennel, clove, bay leaves, coriander, parsley, cilantro, apple cider vinegar, and cumin.

Qty: To Taste

Stevia Plus


You will also notice that, for now at least, dairy products (with the exception of Whey) are off limits. You must also cut out all grains, bread, cereal, and starchy vegetables such as potatoes, corn, peas, carrots (except daily allowance), parsnips, pumpkin, winter squash, and beans.

Rule #2: Drink the following:

Before Breakfast:
Drink an 8 ounce cup of hot water with the juice of 1/2 lemon to assist your kidneys and liver

Life Long Cocktail: Before Breakfast and Before Bed:
(How to Prepare)

In 8 ounces of the cranberry water, add either 1 full teaspoon of powdered psyllium husks or 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds.  Be sure to mix the psyllium quickly and drink it immediately to prevent clumping.  Also, this goes down best with a straw.

Cranberry Water: 
Drink 64 ounces per day
(How To Prepare)
To prepare cranberry water, purchase Knudsen's, Trader joe's, or Mountain Sun's Unsweetened Cranberry Juice.  Then get two empty 32-ounce bottles.  Fill each 32-ounce water bottle with 4 ounces of unsweetened cranberry juice and 28 ounces of water.

Legal Cheat:
Qty: 1 cup per day
Organic Coffee in the morning

Rule #3: Take Your Supplements

Straight GLA Suppliments

Qty: 360 to 400 mg
1. Multivitamin
2. Weight-Loss Formula-containing liver-supporting herbs such as dandelion root and milk thistle
3. Carbohydrate Controllers- Such as: Chromium
4. Fat Burners- Such as: L-carnitine, methionine, choline, inositol, lipase, and lecithin
