Fat Flush success storiesThey lost a total of 350 lbs and regained their health!

I’ll admit it, I’m in awe.

Over the past 25 years, whether its 10 lbs or 100 lbs, literally thousands of Fat Flushing men and women have lost weight and kept it off. Using the Fat Flush diet and detox principles, they’ve also accrued a myriad of lifestyle benefits.

This is all the more admirable when you consider that weight loss is not just about counting calories, exercise, and willpower anymore.

There are a number of factors that play an insidious role in weight loss resistance including undetected food sensitivities, insulin resistance, inflammation, malabsorption, GMOS, endocrine-disrupting chemicals, obesogens, plastics, pesticides, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, estrogen dominance, yeast overgrowth, liver toxicity and a lack of beneficial gut bacteria.

This is why—since 1988—all of my diet programs (Fat Flush, Gut Flush, Fast Track Detox) have incorporated detoxification and supplementation to help avert, resolve, and correct many of these hidden weight gain roadblocks.

As a result, I’ve heard jaw-dropping reports from Fat Flushers far and wide who have not only lost the weight, but finally found relief from their most problematic health issues.

Here are the three common denominators that made all the difference:

Fat Flush Body Protein, Fat Flush Kit and Y-C Cleanse.


Linda lost 25 lbs and overcame her thyroid issues and much more!

Linda S. Fat Flush Success Story

Linda S.

When Linda S. noticed some unwanted pounds starting to creep on, she knew these underlying concerns were a likely culprit. “My levels in all areas really went out of control. I cannot tell you the fatigue I’ve endured—just getting out of bed in the morning was sometimes nearly impossible. And, oh, the brain fog…this was not good news at all!”

But, thanks to her vast knowledge of the Fat Flush principles, she knew she had the tools to get back on track.

As a self-described “slow as a turtle loser” she lost 25 lbs over the next year, and shed 10 inches including several from her belly, which she says despite regular exercise wouldn’t budge!

And the benefits kept coming—“I’m wearing two dress sizes smaller…and my energy level and ability to concentrate on my clients and my personal life have vastly improved. Simply amazing!”

A visit to her health care practitioner delivered the best news of all…

“My thyroid is finally on its way to being balanced again! I no longer fit the profile for metabolic syndrome! (Although I will always have the tendency to develop it again, so staying true to this plan is vital.) I no longer have PCOS (I am cyst- and fibroid- free!) and my osteopenia is improving!”

She attributes much of her success to the Fat Flush Body Protein. “Not only is it delicious and filling, I absolutely credit this unique plant-based formulation for resetting my metabolism and allowing me to lose the weight and keep it off!”


In it for the long haul, Rebeccah finally lost 100 lbs!

Rebeccah - Fat Flush testimonial

Rebeccah R.

A particularly inspiring story came to us recently from a young woman named Rebeccah R. who had struggled with her weight all her life. Despite pleas from family members, she was reluctant to make an “unnecessary” lifestyle change.

It all shifted when she witnessed the “amazing results” her sister was seeing on The Fat Flush Plan. “I finally made up my mind that I was tired of seeing how big I was in pictures and knew I needed to make a change for the better.”

And, change she did!

“Over the next 6-8 months I was losing anywhere from 10-12 lbs a month with diet and exercise. I dropped over 100 lbs and honestly couldn’t believe it. And the best part was that during my weight loss I didn’t feel like I was on a diet, like I was starving or malnourished.”

And, as an added bonus, she says her sweet tooth disappeared!



Karen W. lost 44 lbs and conquered sugar cravings for good!

Karen W. Fat Flush Success Story

Karen W

Yeast overgrowth is the common culprit behind the sugar cravings so many dieters struggle to overcome in order to lose weight, and Karen W. was one of them.

We first heard from Karen several years ago—“I began by using the Y-C Cleanse to eliminate cravings for sugar and bread. After experiencing success with that supplement, I decided to try the Fat Flush protein smoothies to see how they worked. I stuck closely to the Fat Flush Plan as outlined in the book and could not believe how the pounds just melted away after having tried everything to get rid of the fat!”

She lost 34 pounds on the plan back then, and recently checked in to let us know that she’s now kept the weight off for over 2 years and lost an additional 10 lbs for an overall total of 44 lbs!

In order to maintain, she says, “I now enjoy one smoothie in the morning and have had great success with combining the effects of the weight loss supplements with the Y-C Cleanse.”

A big fan of the Fat Flush Kit, she says “I really feel they made all the difference in supporting the liver throughout the whole weight loss process.”


Gabrielle dropped 23 lbs in just 4 weeks when she discovered hypoallergenic Fat Flush Body Protein!

Gabrielle - Fat Flush Success Story


Gabrielle knew she wanted to try a smoothie diet, but with her lactose intolerance, it seemed like most of the programs she found just wouldn’t work. She tried a soy-based protein powder and it turned out that she was allergic to that too.

It wasn’t until she found Fat Flush Body Protein—made from a blend of GMO-free pea and rice protein—that she was able to start dropping pounds on the Smoothie Shakedown.

She says, “The Fat Flush Smoothie Shakedown has been nothing but a success for me. In the first 2 weeks I lost 15 lbs with no trouble at all. I LOVE the taste but most of all, I love the way it makes me feel—inside and out!”

She also lost 2 pant sizes, and after a second round of the Shakedown was down another 8 lbs and, she says, “I have noticed that it really does target that belly fat and those dreaded love handles!”

As a busy mom, she says if she can do the plan, anyone can.

“I am a regular person, working 40 hours a week, raising a son and having fun with life. If I can do Fat Flush Shakedown and be successful, so can you. What’s 2 weeks? It’s 2 more weeks being unhappy or 2 weeks feeling good about yourself and your lifestyle change! And you will be thanking yourself for it too!”


Aretha’s energy went through the roof after losing 78 lbs!

Aretha Fat Flush Success Story


Feeling tired and sluggish, Aretha was constantly fighting the “fall asleep blues” at work, and decided it was time for a major life change.

“Weighing in at 287 pounds, the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life, I started with the Smoothie Shakedown. I had more than 50 pounds to lose. I approached it head on and followed the extended Shakedown program for 4 weeks and lost 38 pounds!”

Motivated by her incredible progress, she moved on to the Classic Fat Flush program and continued to lose, “to this day I have lost an additional 40 pounds…and counting!”

Aretha credits the well-rounded Fat Flush principles with her success. She says “it is wonderful to use a complete program that works, leaves you energetic, and focuses on the cleansing of major organs that are tired and often overlooked by other programs.”

She not only lost a total of 78 lbs, she regained her energy and took back her life, “I am 43 years old and I work with 3-4 year olds and my energy levels have escalated through the roof!”


And last but not least, Fat Flush is not just for women…

David slashed 30 lbs and counting!

David F. Fat Flush Success Story

David F.

David was first introduced to the program when he decided to join his wife on the Smoothie Shakedown.  He is not afraid to admit that the first couple of days took some getting used to. “I was hungry and had headaches from the toxins leaving my body.”

But by the third day, he had adjusted to his new eating schedule and was feeling much better.

And, best of all, he started seeing results— “After the first week I was no longer hungry or craving unhealthy foods and had lost 10 lbs!” With a packed schedule and no time to exercise, he focused on closely following the plan, sticking to the approved food list and taking the Fat Flush Kit supplements daily.

By the end of the two weeks, David lost 18.2 lbs and 4 inches from his waist!

And, he didn’t stop there—“Over the next month, I lost another 12 lbs by having one or two smoothies a day and continuing to take the supplements.”

To date, David’s lost more than 30 pounds, and while he still has more to lose to reach his goal, he’s confident the Smoothie Shakedown is the plan to get him there, “I love how easy the plan is with my busy schedule, how filling the smoothies are, and how much energy they give me.”

    The key, unfortunately, is to find the actual and true desire
    to follow the regimen.
    There is no question that the Fat Flush program is absolutely valid and wonderful, the efficacy lies in the mental trigger that allows one to be, a)healthy and b)
    Being true to yourself is paramount— why did you choose to not be dynamic all these years. ?

    Hi Dr. Denia:

    How nice to receive your comment.

    Motivation is key and when the “student” is ready, the “teacher” appears.

    Our purpose in providing these testimonials with their before and after pics, is to trigger the very motivation that will inspire someone to embark on a Fat Flushing lifestyle.

    Hopefully, by seeing how others have succeeded,one will be inspired to do the same 🙂 Works for me!!

  3. Helen in CA

    I’ve a concern. As a former Fat Flusher (who’s let things creep back), I know the diet works for me.

    My concern is that I’m older, 65. Basically, my skin doesn’t have the elasticity it used to. So I hesitate to start Fat Flush again because of how fast it works. Feeling that I need something that takes more time, so my skin can adjust.


  4. Ann Louise

    Hi Helen in CA:

    Yes – you are certainly right that Fat Flush works and works quickly. But if you take the CLA, GLA, and the recommended Omega-3 rich oils, your skin should be well supported, nourished, and hydrated – one of the reasons I have always included critical and essential fatty acids in my detox programs. I would also add some Great Lakes gelatin once or twice per day to the regimen to further support collagen and elastin retention. Why not forego the accelerated detox portion (phase 1) and begin instead with phase 3? By starting off with the Lifestyle Fat Flush Maintenance portion, you would slow down the “losing” process, allowing for the gentle detoxification benefits of the signature elements while giving your body time to reset its metabolism at a slower pace. Sound like a plan?

  5. Mary Ellen

    Is this a good plan for Type 2 Diabetics. I am having a terrible time getting my A1C numbers down even though I take medicines 4 times a day. I don’t seem to have any control over food. I’m 59 yrs old, work 50 hours at stressful desk-bound job, only want to sleep when I get home. I’m at least 50-60 lbs overweight. What are your thoughts for diabetics? Thank you

    • Team ALG

      The Fat Flush Plan works wonderfully for diabetics by focusing on fiber-rich, low glycemic fruits and vegetables, essential fatty acids and lean protein that slow the release of glucose into your blood. This style of eating is incredibly effective for lowering blood sugar levels, so it is very important to be diligent with testing your blood glucose levels and making appropriate adjustments as you begin.

  6. Judy

    In addition to hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, probably candida I just can’t lose weight and have an upper gut I can’t stand. What plan to you recommend? Oh and I’m 62 years old.

    • Team ALG

      Hi Judy, You would likely do well on the classic Fat Flush Plan. Start with Phase 1 for two weeks, then follow Phase 2 until you’ve reached your goal, and Phase 3 will help you maintain your results. To address hypothyroidism, please call UNI KEY and see if you would be a good candidate for the affordable thyroid formula called Thytrophan PMG (800.888.4353). Adrenal support will be key, in addition to your Fat Flush Kit, so consider the Adrenal Formula from UNI KEY as well. Please be sure to include 2 eggs daily, and high quality lean red meat in your Fat Flush as vitamin A is essential to adrenal health, as well as vitamin C rich fruits. To knock out the Candida, the Y-C Cleanse is most helpful. It is a powerful homeopathic solution designed to kick-start your own immune response against yeast, Candida, and fungus overgrowth. Best wishes to you!

    I did the fat flush plan yrs ago, with great success. Since then I have put on some weight due to foot surgery and breast cancer. I am on armdex, will be for 5 yrs, fosamax, catapres for blood pressure. I am not supposed to have anything that will affect my hormones, I.e. melatonin, etc. Dr. Also said no soy. I know the protein powder is free of soy, are the supplements? Also, is it safe for me to do the flaxseed in cran water, gla, cla, and supplements? Will any of them affect my hormones? I really want to do the accelerated plan. Thank you.

    • Team ALG

      Hi Elaine, The supplements in the Fat Flush Kit are free from any allergenic or hormone-influencing soy components. The Weight Loss Formula does contain soy lecithin as a scientifically proven means of improving liver function and helping to reduce high cholesterol. Please consult with you health care provider about the use of flax seeds, and make sure to use GLA from black currant seed oil rather than borage or evening primrose as those oils may increase estrogen in some women (black currant seed does not). Other than that, you can follow the plan just how it is written in the Fat Flush Plan book. Best wishes to you

  8. Dr.Denia Mette

    Here in Nevada, you MUST include at least a tablespoon of flax seed oil per day..that will amazingly help with weight loss AND skin elasticity and, for no extra charge, it is an anti-inflammatory-par excellence!

    with love,
    Dr. Denia Mette’

    I just started the Fat Flush smoothie shakedown and the taste is not bad at all. my husband went into the hospital and I went off my menu plan for a day, what do I do, do I start over again or just continue with the plan.

    I need to lose 20 lbs.
    thank you
    also I wanted to know if I could do the fat flush soup while doing the smoothie shakedown.

    • Team ALG

      You should just continue on with the Smoothie Shakedown! Add another day at the end. If you look on http://www.smoothieshakedown.com you will find many enjoyable soup recipes.

  10. twomuchfat

    thank you for your reply, I love this life change eating.

  11. twomuchfat

    you did not answer my question concerning the fat flush soup – can I have this while I’m doing the smoothie shakedown?
    thank you

    • Team ALG

      The recipe for the Soup Diet soup includes ingredients that are not part of the Smoothie Shakedown, so unless it is modified, it is not acceptable.

  12. twomuchfat

    good morning,
    I am on my 11th day on the smoothie shakedown diet and I was doing well. I seem to be stuck right now and the weight has not been coming off.

    also I have not been going to the bathroom as I should, could that be the problem?
    thank you
    love my smoothie everyday.

    • Team ALG

      Yes, that is likely the problem! Make sure you are drinking the full recommended amount of water and eating the recommended servings of vegetables each day. If you’re not already, add 2-4 tbs of chia or ground flax seeds to your daily intake. And if you’re already doing all of this, try taking 400-1200 mg of magnesium, then add a colon care supplement like Super GI Cleanse to your daily routine.

    This is such an inspiring testimony!
    The Fat Flush Plan was recommended to me in my late teen years after I began having horrible menstrual cycles, ovarian cysts, and eventually emergency surgery on a cyst that was nearly rupturing another organ. I lost 72 lbs after my first child and used it to regain my health after a couple stressful life events.

    I have always been impressed by the balance I feel in my body after this plan and it truly is designed for women!
    I am so happy to have this as a resource and always find inspiration from the testimonies.

    Thank you for sharing as I begin another journey with the Fat Flush.

  14. Guerra

    I am a 52 year old women who is taking bio identical hormones for menopause. At 50, I was diagnosed with diabetes and have suffered from daily heartburn for the past 20 years. Previous to the hormones I had managed to loose 20 lbs but gained half of that back as soon as I started taking the hormones. Would this diet work for me if I’m on hormones? Also, what panel of testing do you recommend I have done from the Uni Key Health based on my symptoms?
    Thank you,

    • Team ALG

      Guerra, Yes, we have had many women do well while they are in menopause and post menopause, either with hormones or without. Here’s the link to the Salivary Hormone test that could help you balance your hormones. https://unikeyhealth.com/products/salivary-hormone-test
