3-Day SOS Metabolism Makeover

Help! So, you’ve been losing weight this summer, but now you’ve hit a plateau.

Your resolve is beginning to wane. You’re having trouble sticking to your diet. You are really frustrated that the scale is not moving southward as quickly and effortlessly as it once did. Or maybe you celebrated a little too much for a special occasion or just got back from a “fattening” vacation. You are on the lookout for an “emergency” way to lose your tummy in a hurry for an upcoming wedding or high school reunion. And you need almost overnight results.

Just for in time for that special event, I’ve created a double-whammy. I combined two of my most successful weight loss strategies of all time for a special liquid Flush with really fast results! With the Hot Metabolism Cocktail, you’ll be cool as a cucumber while your metabolism heats up with lots of thermogenic spices, green veggies, and tomatoes.

You’ll start to see a shrinking waist without sacrificing your health—like so many crash diets do—because you’ll also be consuming plenty of fiber, omega-3-rich oil, fruits, and hypoallergenic protein.

At the core of the plan is my special “cocktail with a kick” that you will be drinking three times per day: morning, noon, and night. The Hot Metabolism Cocktail, due to its high water content, helps you stay filled up and fuller longer while keeping calories low. For lunch and dinner, fruit-flushing smoothies with complimentary weight-regulating ingredients will help give your digestive system a rest while delivering long term appetite satisfaction and hydration.

Here’s what you need to get started:

Hot Metabolism Cocktail
– Makes 1 serving
1 large ripe tomato, or 8 ounces V8 or Knudsen’s Very Veggie Juice
½ cup fresh squeezed lime or lemon juice
½ cup filtered water (unless using juice)
Handful of fresh parsley
Handful of fresh cilantro
1 green onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/8 teaspoon cayenne (or as desired)
2 teaspoons olive oil
½ teaspoon Seaweed Gomasio
½ teaspoon Flora-Key
1 tablespoon chia seeds
6 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in a blender until the desired consistency is reached.

Follow this daily menu for two to five days to melt off pounds in a hurry.

Breakfast: Hot Metabolism Cocktail
Lunch: Fat Flush Smoothie (Made from 1 scoop Fat Flush Body Protein, 8-ounces water, 1 cup fresh or frozen berries, 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil, 1 tablespoon flax seeds or chia seeds, and ice cubes, if you choose.)
Snack: Hot Metabolism Cocktail
Dinner: Fat Flush Smoothie
Before bedtime: Hot Metabolism Cocktail
Daily: Consume half your body weight in ounces of water (typically 10-12 8-ounce glasses)

By eliminating wheat, dairy, yeast, and salty, spicy or acidic seasonings you will actually trigger your body to release pounds of unnecessary fluid. Your plateau will be a thing of the past as your body purges accumulated fat and fluid from its tissues.

Think of it, the “new you” is only three days away. And even better, once you resume your regular Fat Flushing diet principles and exercise regimen, you will maintain your slimming results for your summertime beach body.

    Hi can i make this Hot Metabolism Cocktail
    the night before and keep it in the fridge to consume the next day?

    • Team ALG

      Yes, you’re certainly welcome to do so!

  2. Helen

    is the recipe correct to use 1/2cup of lemon or lime juice? I find the cocktail too sour. I found this other recipe from Anne Louise (see below). Can it be used instead of the one on the SOS site? Will it have the same effect?
    “Hot Metabolism Cocktail
    3 Tbs. fresh squeezed lime juice
    1 medium vine-ripe tomato
    1/2 cup chopped cilantro, loosely packed
    2 Tbs. fresh chives
    1/2 cup filtered water
    2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    1/2 clove of garlic
    Dash of cayenne
    Pinch of potassium-based salt substitute
    3-4 ice cubes

    Blend all ingredients for approximately 1 minute on high speed in blender.
    Yield: 12 ounces”

    • Team ALG

      Other variations of the recipe use 1/3 cup lemon or lime juice.

      • helen

        Thanks ALG team.
        Which recipe would i use with the 1/3 cup of lime or lemon juice?

        • Team ALG

          That is the amount used in the Fat Flush for Life book.

  3. Sarah

    Do we continue taking the FF supplements while on this? Can we still snack on veggies? And have an egg?

    • Team ALG

      Hi Sarah, part of the detoxifying benefit is to avoid spending energy on digesting whole foods. That being said, if you find yourself feeling too hungry, you may add a third smoothie and even a fourth cocktail to tide you over!

  4. Sarah

    Thank you! What about having 64oz of cranwater?

    • Team ALG

      Cranwater does wonders however and whenever you can sneak it in!

  5. jpma

    I travel extensively what options do you recommend for the hot Metabolism cocktail

    • Team ALG

      You could make it ahead and freeze it if you are traveling by car. If you are flying you would need to take something like a nutra bullet and buy fresh veggies.

  6. Kandice

    I am planning this plus the one day fat flush. Which would be best first?

    • Team ALG

      You can do this one first then the one day fast if you wish. Your body needs to be cleaned out and ready to do a more strict fast.

  7. Tracey

    I really enjoy this drink and it works great for me. I have a question though. Most of the time I am on the fat flush maintenance plan. Would it be ok to occasionally substitute a meal for the hot metabolism boost or should you only drink it as part of the SOS protocol?

    • Team ALG

      You certainly can do this drink on the maintenance plan. You can even do a one day detox using this plan. It’s good to do tune-ups.

  8. Victoria

    Can you do the flush for longer than 3 days?

    • Team ALG

      It’s best to only do it for 3 days at a time so that your metabolism stays revved up. You can repeat the plan again in 3-4 weeks.

  9. Roxanne

    How would I pace myself to get all of this down AND 100 oz of water?

    It seems like I will be consuming something constantly through the whole day!

    I get up at 6am and am at work from 7:30 to 5:30. Could you give me an example of when I should try to start and finish each smoothie/cocktail? How close to bedtime should I consume the last one?

    THANKS! I’m really looking forward to this!


    • Team ALG

      Roxanne, you do need to keep drinking throughout the day. Just follow the above plan and add the times you can do the drinks for the meals and then just drink the cranwater in between. You can do the final cocktail a half hour before bed.
