This simple Tune-UP not only works quickly, it resets your metabolism so you can keep right on losing! p>My metabolism-boosting 3-Day Smart Start has all the right stuff—including the essential Smart Fats. Many of my clients lose up to seven pounds in three days while most shed at least three to four pounds with a flatter tummy and no more cravings or blood sugar highs and lows.

Why It Works
The Tune-UP can be broken down into five factors like this:

Factor #1: Smart Flushing Fluids
You will be consuming three metabolism-boosting cocktails a day as well as three Smart Smoothies.

Between meals, you can also drink lots of cranwater or plain, filtered water. Keeping well-hydrated will elevate metabolism by at least three percent.

Factor #2: Hot Spices
The special booster cocktail contains just the right amount of fat-stoking cayenne pepper, mustard, turmeric and ginger to raise heat production in the system, kicking fat burning into high gear.

Factor #3: No Grain Drain
Grains trigger fat-promoting and hunger-producing insulin. To replace grains, you will be filling up on delicious protein-based smoothies. Protein encourages the release of glucagon which accesses stored body fat for energy. In addition, protein will stimulate metabolism by nearly 25 percent.

Factor #4: Daily Detox
Ingesting Mother Nature’s most purifying cleansing elements—especially green leafy veggies, bluegreen algae, and low sugar fruits—can help your body eliminate toxins that inhibit fat burning. Since toxins from pollution and pesticides in food are stashed in the fat cells, the more we can cleanse, the more effectively our fat cells will shrink!

You can also snack on raw jicama, celery, and carrot sticks for even more veggie and fiber power. Jicama is a pre-biotic that will feed your microbiome, ensuring you have plenty of “skinny bacteria” to keep you fit and trim.

Factor #5: Fire Power Smart Fats
The Tune-UP is plenty low in calories; however, it provides all the Smart Fats you need to satisfy satiety. And, as they burn, they activate more metabolism-revving heat.

I hope you will give this a try. Everything is so simple, and everything is right here so you can get started today!

Here is your daily Tune-UP menu.
These quick and easy liquid meals will help reset your digestive tract while spiking up fat burning on the double. You can drink cran-water between meals, or filtered, pure water (half your body weight in ounces daily).
