The Fat Flush Plan, filled with nutritional analysis and detailed explanations, is not a quick read. Despite Gittleman's assertion that the plan is "as easy as 1-2-3," it is quite regimented. No white flour, white sugar, margarine, vegetable shortening, artificial sweeteners, or caffeine. The diet emphasizes essential oils (e.g., flaxseed and GLA), protein (eight ounces or more, plus two eggs a day), vegetables, thermogenic spices (e.g., ginger and cayenne), water, and diuretic beverages (eight glasses/day of diluted, unsweetened cranberry juice). In its first two-week phase, the plan is a rigid, low calorie (1,100-1,200 calories/day), low-carb (no grains or starchy vegetables) diet. Phase two lets you increase your calories to 1,500 and add two "friendly carbs." Phase three, the "lifestyle program," moderately adds more dairy, carbs, and calories. Gittleman promotes walking and recommends strength training in phase three.
The book includes 41 recipes such as Grilled Lamb Chops with Cinnamon and Coriander, Breakfast Egg Fu Yung, and Cumin Sautéed Scallops. The Fat Flush Plan is recommended for dieters willing to commit to a strict plan for weight loss. --Joan Price

My cholesterol had been 266. I was on Baycol for 12 months when it was taken off the market last August. My doctor then prescribed other statins which caused severe pain in my legs and chest and also did not control my cholesterol readings.
My wife and I read the Fat Flush Plan book on a Sunday afternoon. We went to the supermarket Sunday evening, and started the Plan Monday morning, Feb. 25th, in earnest. Tuesday morning my glucometer readings were low so I cut the doses in half. On Wednesday morning my readings had again dropped lower and I discontinued the insulin and medications. I have had absolutely no medications or insulin since February 27th. My April 6th lab showed my cholesterol to be 166. The HDL's were up and LDL's were down. My total cholesterol has been getting lower ever since. My A1C is down to 5.5.
I have always been overweight. For 30 years I have weighed between 250-300#. Taking insulin added about 50# to my weight. When I began on Feb. 25th, I weighed 352#, I guess. I say "guess" because my doctor's scale only went to 350# and my weight was off to the right of the end of the scale. My wife Joan weighed 253#. I wore size 60 pants and XXXL shirts comfortably. Joan was wearing XXL pants and tops. I am now 230# and wear size 40 pants and size 16 shirts.Read more ›
I am 59 years old and had been severely ill with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia for the past 6 years, having been partially paralyzed and bedridden for much of that time.
Medications and pain induced sedentary lifestyle created a size 16-18 body on my 5'4" frame. I was exhausted and craved sugar all the time, which made me just more tired and wanting MORE. I was spiraling out of control. My skin was dull and dry and I was finally beginning to AGE........at high speed.
In April 2002, I weighed 193 pounds and began by banishing all "white" and refined foods from my diet and drinking large quantities of good clean water. I was doing better; slowly the inches and pounds fell away......I was still struggling, but help from Ann Louise Gittleman was on the way!
On September 19, 2002, I began The Fat Flush Plan and the results were dramatic and immediate. I not only became smaller and found my cheekbones and muscles again, but my skin and hair glowed and I was growing younger looking and feeling. The change in me is nothing short of miraculous. The New Year saw me wearing size 6-8 clothing and everything about me is glowing with vitality; both friends and strangers stop me and ask how I have been blessed with such energy and youthful, thin, fit appearance.Read more ›
