Fall is “Soup Season” and my Famous Fat Flush Soup recipe is one of the all-time fan favorite recipes. Why? Because it’s easy, delicious, and filling, but most of all, because it works!Celebrate the flavors of fall.
Savor all of the flavors of fall while melting away pesky pounds and inches with this one simple soup.
Introduced in Woman’s World Magazine (October 3, 2011), issues quickly disappeared from newsstands across the country as determined dieters were ready for a “yummy” soup that’s a perfect meal the whole family will love when Fall nips the air. And the recipe remains a popular choice even today with thousands of views each and every month.
Inspired by a study at Penn State that found eating soup can trigger you to consume up to 448 fewer calories per meal, this satisfying soup is an easy go-to recipe to help jumpstart long term weight control.
For those of you new to Fat Flush, the soup serves as a delicious entrée (pun intended) into the world of Fat Flush – a “pre-flush” if you will.
The results speak for themselves: One New Hampshire Woman’s World reader lost 11 lbs in one week, and another shed a whopping 10 lbs in just three days! Others dropped 6, 7, even 11 lbs within a week. Find out how much you’ll lose with this super-filling recipe:

A Tip from our Fat Flush test kitchen: For a chunkier soup, add a 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes.
Note: We have made small tweaks in the recipe (the type of beans that work best, for example) for added clarity after receiving thousands of emails from dieters with common questions after making the soup.

Looking for a little variety?
Swap the soup for 5 oz. lean protein (such as eggs, fish, chicken, turkey or beef) and 2 cups veggies prepared with 1 tsp. olive oil; add herbs, spices and lemon juice as desired.
After a week or so on the Fat Flush Soup Diet, move on to my classic Fat Flush program, outlined in my book, The Fat Flush Plan. If you have 50 or more pounds to lose, head to Phase 1. If you have less than 50 pounds to lose, head to Phase 2.
Note for Veteran Fat Flushers: For those of you currently following my classic Fat Flush program, please note the soup recipe would be most appropriate for Phase 3. If you are currently following Phase 1 or Phase 2, omit the beans from the soup recipe to stay on-plan.
