So you overdid it during the holidays –too many goodies, too much wine – and now you’re starting to worry about the extra pounds you’ve put on again this year. But, you’re not alone – and I’ve got some great news to lift your spirits!
Featured in the pages of Woman’s World and First for Women magazines, my 24-hr Christmas Cleanse has been the go-to holiday weight gain solution for thousands of fans – many of our testers have lost as much as 5 pounds and 4 inches in one day!
And now, I’ve made it even better with a few super-charging tweaks for the ultimate post-holiday detox. Whether or not your pants seem tighter, consider this easy one-day juice diet—before those holiday leftovers hit your waistline.
How it Works
For one full day, skip solid foods and alternate between the Holiday Detox Juice (see recipe below) and my signature Hot Lemon Water to unlock your body’s natural fat-burning capacity.
The fruit acids and vitamin C in the detox juice can increase the body’s ability to emulsify fat by as much as 30%. The natural cleansers – cranberry, pomegranate, lemon and spices help to flush toxins and rejuvenate body systems – like the liver – that have gotten sluggish from all the holiday overindulging. A popular staple of my Fat Flush diet for years, Cranberry is a powerful natural diuretic, and pomegranate is loaded with antioxidants (3x higher than red wine and green tea). Combining these two super-fruits with plenty of water will keep you energized all-day and quickly flush out bloat and excess fluids from cells and tissues – you’ll even see cellulite start to disappear!
To help balance blood sugar and curb cravings during this one-day cleanse, I’ve also included a little cinnamon – proven by scientists to increase sugar metabolism up to 20 times.
For a 24-hour period, you’ll alternate between the Holiday Detox Juice and Hot Lemon Water, drinking one serving every waking hour.
Holiday Detox Juice
Makes 9.5 cups – serving size: 8-12 oz.
8 oz. unsweetened cranberry juice
8 oz. unsweetened pomegranate juice
7 cups water
½ cup fresh orange juice
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger

Worried you’ll be too hungry?
Some people may feel a bit light-headed on a liquid diet, even if it’s just for a day. In that case, add 1 to 2 scoops of Fat Flush Body Protein to your one-day menu. With one of the highest protein efficiency ratios on the market, this special vegan blend of yellow pea and brown proteins contains essential amino acids and 20 grams of complete protein.
