From rebounding, walking, and weight training to specially designed yoga stretches and deep breathing exercises, this plan builds calorie burning muscle mass, speeds weight loss and keeps those pounds from ever returning. Complete with sections on dry skin brushing, aromatherapy baths, and cellulite, readers will enjoy the personal anecdotes from Fat Flushers, motivational tidbits, easy-to-read charts and personal success stories. The Fat Flush Fitness Plan was a US Weekly Pick of the Week
The Fat Flush Fitness Plan, written by a powerhouse team, offers Joanie Greggains’ detailed exercise program, designed to complement Ann Louise Gittleman’s The Fat Flush Plan. Gittleman is a high-profile nutritionist, frequently featured in the media. Veteran fitness expert Greggains, author of Fit Happens, hosted television’s long-running “Morning Stretch” and leads 15 workout videos. Greggains emphasizes low-impact aerobics, weight training, stretching, more sleep, and calmer living. The eating program (you’ll need Gittleman’s other books for the details) hinges on Gittleman’s premise that “cleansing the liver and the lymphatic system is absolutely crucial for physical health, weight loss, and an overall sense of well-being.” This isn’t a quick-fix program, but a long-term, lifestyle change including yoga, walking or rebounding, strength training with a weighted ball, stretching, lymphatic massage, and aromatherapy baths. Start with Phase 1: “Detox, Start Moving–and Relax”; add strength training in Phase 2: “Build Lean Muscle Mass”; increase cardio and change the strength routine in Phase 3: “Lymph-Fit/Compound Strength and Stretching Plan.” All phases present a step-by-step, clearly illustrated exercise program. The book is nicely designed, with clear photographs, boxed tips, write-in questionnaires, pledges, and a sample journal. –Joan Price

As usual, this book is very informative, so I give her three stars in that respect. Her books in general paint a splendid natural way to eat for health-conscious people that harkens to a time when organic food was the norm. Sometimes I slap myself when I realize what brave new world we exist in now when eating organic food is a luxury. Who knew that one day we would have to pay ridiculous prices to avoid eating hormone-pumped chickens allowed to sit and fatten in cages under artificial light while being fed animal byproducts to boot? “Organic” food now costs two to three times more than conventional food. I have nothing but appreciation for nutritionists now. When I was young and couldn’t comprehend death, I’ve been known to shew away nutritionists with one hand and with a candy bar in the other. Now they’re my mystic advisers who are themselves advised by science; this regimen is a reliable and sound one. I have been on this plan for one week. I have already lost six pounds. Most importantly, I have gained mental clarity and stability. I have recently been severely depressed and was prescribed antidepressants. This regimen was my last hope that I can reverse the problem myself. I believe, as a result of this diet (flaxseed oil in particular), my moods are not so strong and intrusive. I still feel frustration, but it’s no longer overpowering and I can usually persist through my problems. I also feel energized. So that desire to oversleep is almost completely eliminated. And there is still more to come as I walk toward that horizon of more possibilities — exercise!
I’m working my way through this book but so far I really do like what I see and read. I’m 59 and getting over a long illness so learning to work out in a healthy and “fit” way is appealing… and flushing the fat won’t hurt either! I recommend it!
