Top 10 Flush the Fat Away Recipes

Fight fat the yummy way with these meal ideas.

Eat well = live well. When you’re ready to transform how you look and feel, start in the kitchen. Clean eating recipes, which focus on using minimally-processed ingredients, provide you with the fuel needed to shed pounds and keep them off. Add these 10 flush the fat away recipes to your healthy menu plan this week.

We hand-picked the recipes below to ensure the best flab-shedding ingredients. Some include healthy fats, like those found in olive oil, avocado, or walnuts. Good fats promote calorie burn and fight abdominal fat, a type that produces toxins linked to chronic conditions such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

You’ll also discover perhaps surprising ingredients, like green tea, on our flush the fat away recipes list. This fat-fighting superfood contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a substance that breaks down a hormone linked to the storage of fat cells. Green tea also offers caffeine for a temporary metabolism boost.

We’ve also included recipes with ingredients high in water content. Cucumbers, tomatoes, and similar whole foods hydrate the body, which keeps the digestive system running properly for more efficient weight loss.
