Do you ever watch Dr. Oz? I don’t watch it as often as I’d like (my son says it scares him….Dr. Oz makes him think he has some strange disease…lol), but a couple of days ago there was an episode on that caught my interest. A young lady named Kim Lyon shared her Ten Day Plan to Trim Fat. What I reaped from this “plan” was step one, Kim’s recipe for Fat Flush Water. The ingredients are simple and inexpensive, it is healthy AND it’s tasty!
So for those of you who may have missed it, here goes:
1 slice of grapefruit (too much grapefruit adds a bit of bitter taste to the water….I learned!)
a tangerine (sliced)
1/2 sliced cucumber
2 peppermint leaves
That’s it! Place in a pitcher and chill or serve over ice. Here is Kim’s breakdown of what this can do for you: Grapefruit ~ Vitamin C which turns fat to fuel; Tangerine ~ increases your sensitivity to insulin, stabilizes blood sugar and stimulates genes to burn fat. Cucumber ~ helps you feel full and acts as a diuretic, which means less bloating and water retention. Peppermint ~ promotes better digestion and calms the stomach.
Kim suggests making a pitcher each morning and drinking an 8 ounce glass three times a day before each meal. Do this for ten days straight, if you are doing the ten-day program. She also said though, since it’s good, you can just drink it to drink it!
Personally, I like it. I cannot testify to the benefits yet, but it is filling and tasty. It is also “hubby” approved. So let me know if you try it~ and I hope you find some “good” in your Thursday! ♥
