Freedom from Being Overweight: Addressing The Sneaky Saboteurs That Prevent Weight Loss

July 4, 2024

Since The Fat Flush Plan was published in 2001 and quickly became a New York Times bestseller, millions of people around the world have used the guide to lose weight successfully. Popular long before paleo, carnivore and keto diets, The Fat Flush Plan continues to outshine them all. Its success is due not just to the research-based menu and recipe suggestions, but because it addresses some sneaky saboteurs that are common barriers to weight loss.

Many dieters focus their attention on calories in/calories out. Unfortunately, this technique doesn’t work for everyone and can leave you feeling tired, hungry, and defeated. My tried-and-true Fat Flush Plan is easy to implement AND it addresses often overlooked weight-loss obstacles like these:

10 Hidden Weight Loss Factors

#1 Liver Toxicity

A liver lacking nutrients and overloaded with pollutants and toxins cannot efficiently burn body fat, sabotaging your weight loss efforts.

The Fat Flush Plan stands apart from other diets by making the case that “diet without detox” is doomed to failure due to the unprecedented amount of current toxins and hormone disruptors in our environment today. This program’s unique focus on detoxification and liver health has made it a game-changer for millions. UNI KEY’s Liver Lovin’ Formula contains three key components (healing chlorophyll, artichoke and taurine) that provide the ideal cleansing boost to keep the liver running smoothly and promote natural liver detox.

#2 Stress as Fat Maker

Constant stress makes the adrenal glands produce excessive cortisol leading to weight gain, especially belly fat!

Low adrenal function is an increasingly common diagnosis. When your fight or flight stress glands are simply overworked and too tired to perform properly, you experience a myriad of symptoms—including the inability to lose weight. You can revitalize your adrenal glands with UNI KEY’s Adrenal Formula that contains adrenal glandular tissue that acts like a stem cell enhancer.

#3 Water Retention

Not consuming enough water, food sensitivities and hormonal fluctuations can trap pounds of water in the body’s tissues.

My signature Cran-Water recipe, a staple of The Fat Flush Plan, is a bloat-buster and will help you bust bloat and make cellulite do a vanishing act. And if food sensitivities are an issue for you, taking a digestive enzyme like Digesta-Key will help mitigate the symptoms of these sensitivities. These digestive enzymes aid the small intestine’s role in digesting proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Their actions help maintain intestinal health and minimize food intolerances.

#4 Fear of Eating Fat

Eating fat to get thin may seem to fly in the face of reason but as many as 80% of Americans eat a diet deficient in essential fatty acids, that can help ease cravings.

The Fat Flush Plan will teach you which fats to avoid and which to embrace. Researchers have overlooked the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA), known since the 1980s to stimulate brown fat activity. GLA, crucial in the Fat Flush program, is found in black currant seed oil and is included in UNI KEY’s GLA-90. It’s essential for glowing skin and helps keep skin taut during weight loss.

#5 Excess Insulin

Refined carbs like bread, pasta and sugars are rapidly converted into glucose which triggers high levels of insulin. When insulin can’t convert this glucose your body fat % increases.

The Fat Flush Plan will teach you how to enable your own body fat to be burned as fuel. In addition, chromium can often significantly curb sugar cravings. It is commonly deficient in our diet unless you live on beer and pepper (the highest sources of this trace mineral). Look for the picolinate form, found in my Weight Loss Formula.

#6 Messy Microbiome

Numerous studies have intimately linked an unbalanced microbiome to weight gain and obesity. Its influential role in our metabolism gives our bacterial ecosystem substantial control over our weight.

Bloating is no joke, and if you experience this regularly, dysbiosis (or an imbalance in gut flora) could be the reason. The Fat Flush Plan offers food suggestions that are rich in both prebiotics and probiotics, along with targeted supplement recommendations like Flora Key which support a healthy microbiome, effectively ending uncomfortable bloat.

#7 Poor Quality Bile

When bad bile keeps your body from digesting fats, not only does it make you gain weight, but it also leaves you without the nutritional benefits packed inside fat.

This all-too-often common problem affects millions of Americans and can lead to an inability to digest fat and unwanted weight gain. The Fat Flush Plan offers specific strategies to support gallbladder health. In addition, my specially formulated Bile Builder is a game-changer for anyone suffering from bloat, diarrhea, stomach pain, and other miserable digestive problems and is a must-have for those who have had their gallbladder removed.

#8 Tuckered-Out Thyroid

Alongside a decreased metabolism, a sluggish thyroid can lead your body to produce too much insulin, triggering low blood sugar along with intense cravings for carbs.

I’ll teach you how to reboot, recharge, and revitalize a sluggish thyroid that can sap your energy and make weight loss feel almost impossible. And UNI KEY’s Thyro-Key will help you jumpstart a sluggish thyroid for faster, easier weight loss and a burst of all-day energy!

#9 Hidden Hitchhikers – Parasites

Researchers believe that parasitic developments in humans may be partly responsible for the human epidemics of insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and obesity.

These unwelcome visitors are more common than you might imagine and can seriously hinder your weight loss efforts by disrupting digestion, gobbling up valuable nutrients and causing unnecessary weight gain. The Fat Flush Plan contains natural anti-parasitic food, herbs and specially formulated supplements to help rid your body off them. Not sure if you’ve got a parasite issue?

#10 Missing Magnesium

Magnesium plays a starring role as a critical mineral that helps turn food into fuel. Without enough of this vital catalyst, you lack a major nutritional component that triggers efficient fat burning.

The Fat Flush Plan includes magnesium-rich foods to keep your metabolism humming along – and gives you the boost your body needs with a superior supplement recommendation: Mag-Key. Mag-Key contains FOUR highly absorbable forms of magnesium along with vitamin B-6 – an absolute essential for losing weight and keeping it off.
