If you’re ready for “wow” weight loss, we’re pretty sure we’ve found a plan that can make it happen. Women testing a three-day “ultra detox” report losing “up to 12 pounds in 72 hours,” reveals Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, author of The New Fat Flush Plan ($17, Amazon). Why does her breakthrough approach work so well? “You literally flood your body with powerful compounds that change the way your body handles calories and burns fat,” she promises. “It’s so effective, after just a few days you can shift to a diet that’s less strict and your body will still continue releasing stored fat more easily. I recently had a woman lose 90 pounds in a matter of months.”
Choose four to six smoothies a day. Drink smoothies when you need to but do not mindlessly sip on them all day – just when you are feeling hungry. The goal of this is not to starve yourself . If you find you are hungry but you have already had three smoothies that were rich in hemp hearts, nuts or other types of fat, follow that with one or two smoothies that contain mostly greens, a little fruit, and fiber. Again, the goal is not to starve, so make sure you are getting enough calories in your smoothies and checking in with yourself every ninety minutes to see how you are feeling.

Include some form of protein with each smoothie. Protein is contained in hemp seeds, cashews, chia, almonds, frozen peas, and spirulina.
