Summer SmoothiesCool down and melt the fat with juicy fruit smoothies!

Juicy, succulent fruits, especially berries of all kind—like raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries—are the perfect antidote to rising temperatures.

But blueberries, especially, are quite the superfruit these days. In honor of the beautiful blues, July has even been named “National Blueberry Month.”

With an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) score of 6552, one cup of blueberries can take care of your minimum daily recommendation of antioxidants and then some.

Of course other berries are also good alternatives, especially blackberries (5347 per cup), raspberries (4882 per cup), and strawberries (3577 per cup).

Blueberries are a standout because not only do they provide more antioxidant power than most other popular fruits, but they also contain a significant amount of both antibacterial and antiviral compounds—which protect against heart disease and cancer.

High in fiber, blueberries also contain tannins, which serve to cleanse the digestive system. Plus, they promote a healthy urinary tract by preventing bacterial growth. No wonder they have their own month!

Fat-busting berries are simply bursting with vitamin C, which stimulates the production of carnitine, an amino acid that boosts metabolism by carrying fat to the mitochondria in your cells, where the fat is converted to energy.

Researchers have also found that insoluble fiber in berries prevents their total calories from being absorbed, making them the ideal skinny-fruit ingredient in your daily smoothies.


Berry Delicious!

On the Fat Flush Smoothie Shakedown you are invited to partake in two filling fruit smoothies daily as a central part of the program.

What makes the smoothies so special is the Shakedown’s staple—Fat Flush Body Protein. A vegan blend of non-hydrolyzed pea and rice protein, Fat Flush Body Protein contains 20 grams of protein per serving. And, it’s is as pure as it gets—you won’t find protein sourced from China!

Fat Flush Body Protein contains NO GMOs, soy, sugar or gluten and is heavy metal free. None of the cadmium, lead, arsenic, and aluminum found in so many other rice-based protein powders on the market today!

The Fat Flush Kit offers advanced detox support for cravings control and turbo-charged fat metabolism taken with the daily Shakedown regimen of two smoothies, unlimited snacks, and one full meal.

Someone Like You…

Gabrielle is a busy working mom who struggled to lose those last 30 lbs. Despite dairy and soy allergies, she was determined to try a “smoothie style” eating plan—the Smoothie Shakedown fit the bill, and she’s now a shining example of success:

“After having my son 6 years Before and Afterago I have struggled to lose that last 30 lbs. Down the road of life over those 6 years, that 30 lbs went up and down— usually up! When I turned 29, I became lactose intolerant.

I wanted to get on a “shake” style eating plan as I had been going to the gym but getting my diet under control was proving to be detrimental to my success.

The problem I found was everything in the stores had dairy and lactose in it as well as soy, which I discovered I had an allergy to when I tried a soy based powder that I bought at the grocery store.

Then one day I stumbled across the Fat Flush Body Protein online. It was dairy free, soy free AND affordable! So after reading the testimonials, I thought “well, it’s worth a shot!” and I hit the order button.

I thank myself EVERYDAY for that moment. The Fat Flush Smoothie Shakedown has been nothing but a success for me. In the first 2 weeks I lost 15lbs with no trouble at all.

I LOVE the taste (Cherry and Cinnamon is my favorite combo) but most of all I love the way it makes me feel— inside and out! Not only did I lose the 15 in the first 2 weeks, but I also lost almost 2 pant sizes.

I went from a 12/14 to an 8/10. YUP! Those are a size 8 in that after photo and I can breathe and I need a belt to take up the extra! The 6′s button but not quite ready to go out in public in them just yet.

I just completed a second round and am down another 8 lbs. It would have been more, but my schedule didn’t allow for as much exercise this time around. I have noticed that it really does target that belly fat and those dreaded love handles (cringing)!

I feel GREAT and my son has learned to be healthier too. 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! So go ahead, just say “YES” to yourself, for yourself and hit order. You won’t regret it. I don’t— I crave it!”
