Everyone hits a weight-loss plateau at some point and needs a slump-busting plan to get those pounds moving again. This 5-Day plan will help you do just that!
The centerpiece of the plan is the Hot Metabolism Booster Cocktail (recipe below) that you will be drinking as a “snack”, three times a day: morning, mid-day, and evening. The cocktail, due to its high water content, helps you to get filled up and stay fuller longer while keeping calories down.
Enjoy the cocktail three times a day, and stick to these healthy foods for the rest of your daily menu:
Beverages: Drinking plenty of water between meals is a fundamental principle of Fat Flushing, in general.
Protein: By filling up on lean protein (eggs, fish, seafood, poultry, and whey) you can raise your metabolism by roughly 25 percent.
Veggies: Green and low-starch vegetables help to further detox your system while you increase fat burning.
Fats: Including another tablespoon of olive oil, in addition to what is in the cocktail will keep you satisfied so you can better stave off hunger pains. (Good fats are the most potent blood-sugar stabilizers)
Fruits: Berries, rich in fiber and flavonoids, combine with whey protein to provide a high-volume breakfast or snack.
