Flush the Fat
Three Steps for a Cellulite Detox
HI Victoria, I am graduating from college soon and I want to celebrate by taking a vacation in a sunny spot. I have not had the time to workout and eat right like I know I should. I need a jump-start to kick my body into a fat burning state. I have admired your work and you are so real with your approach to getting a hot body. How do I get started with a kick butt program that is geared to get rid of these dimples on my butt?
I am ready to jump into my career in the fall, and I know if I don’t get started now, I may end up overweight the rest of my life!!! It’s embarrassing to think I am smart enough to graduate at the top of my class, yet my body is starting to look like my mother’s. Help me get my pre-college body back before I hit the corporate world.
Amelia, CONGRATULATIONS on your outstanding achievement. You are now at a place in your life where you can create your own life. You get to decide which company is worthy of you and your talents. You are in control of your future and you get to design your perfect life. I am so glad you contacted me now instead of three years from now after you gained twenty pounds working crazy corporate hours without taking time for yourself.
Don’t let one more ounce of fat get anywhere near your body. You can reverse the fat build process beginning today.
Amelia, you probably need to decongest your digestive system and detox your body after all the stress and low budget fast food you had been eating on campus.
How do you know if you need a cellulite fat flushing purifying cleanse?
In order to experience a long-term lean body you must eat a perfectly balanced nutritious diet. One of the great advantages of achieving that lean body is high energy and mental clarity.
It is difficult sometimes to start a program so my suggestion is to jump in lips first. It’s looking at everything that passes through your lips into your mouth and down into your stomach for digestion.
Proper nutrition is the basis for boosting your metabolic system and the extra energy you will feel from the detoxifying effects of fresh juices, super foods, herb teas and healing broths.
Most weight loss diets have little nutrition to offer so they leave you feeling tired and lifeless. In the end, even if you lose weight, you feel so deprived that it starts ravenous cravings for foods that zap your energy and put the weight right back on. You end up feeling worse than when you started.
A cellulite fat flushing purifying cleanse is one of the best ways to jump-start your weight loss, which can lead to total healing and anti-aging. Dangerous fats such as saturated fats in processed meats and dairy foods, trans-fats like those found in many dairy foods, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils found in margarine, shortening and many quick snack foods, and oxidized fats, like those in all fried foods, collect in the excess body fat you already have. They all make your fat worse and makes cellulite even more dimply!
Sugary foods and highly processed foods (like fast foods) are void of digestive enzymes that they end up collecting as excess fat, too. When your system is congested, your body tries to dump its metabolic wastes to get them out of the way and one of the places that receive this horrific metabolic waste is excess fat.
Is your body showing signs that it needs a cellulite fat flushing purifying cleanse?
Here are some questions you can ask yourself to find out….
First of all… what is Cellulite? Cellulite is a combination of fat, water and trapped wastes beneath the skin. It is concentrated areas of fat that appears dimpled when you squish it in your hands.
Is it collecting on your hips, thighs or tummy?
Are your upper arms flabby?
Is your waistline noticeably thicker this year than last year this time?
Does your face look jowl-y or puffy?
Have your wrists and ankles thickened?
Amelia, today is the day when you begin this process. No, not next week, or after your next final exam. There's no better time to give your body a healthy, fresh start than right now! You can start lowering your weight this very day by eating clean, upping your liquids and thinking fresh.
Benefits of a Cleanse
Energy levels rise almost every day as your system becomes purified.
Your weight will drop consistently as you become more serious and committed.
Your digestion will noticeably improves as toxins are flushed and high-quality nutrients are more quickly absorbed. This helps to strengthen your immune system and boost your metabolism.
Elimination problems often associated with weight problems begin to clear up.
Circulation will noticeably improve, as will all cardiopulmonary performance.
Your heart becomes healthier as well as your other vital organs.
Quick Steps for a Cellulite Detox to Jump Start Your Weight Loss Program
Step 1 DRINK
Drink plenty of bottled or filtered water!
Eight to twelve glasses of purified water each day. This can include herbal teas that do not have caffeine. Water can help an overeater get past weight loss plateaus; decreasing water intake causes increased fat deposits. Drink all liquids before eating, to suppress appetite and maintain a high metabolic rate. Make sure at least 50 percent of your diet is composed or fresh foods and fresh juices.
Step 2 GO Keep it Moving!
Rev up your fiber intake. Fiber plays a major role in weight control and fat detoxification.
Fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains and legumes are great forms of fiber.
Stop the bad fats! Unhealthy fats make you gain weight... healthy fats like olive oil, flax seed oil and canola oil assist weight loss as long as they are used in moderation. The healthy oil is also good for digestion.
Step 3 EAT
Eat Foods that are Alive, Fresh and Organic!
Here are some suggestions:
Green leafy vegetables. Eat them raw, put them into a broth, add them to your juices. Their chlorophyll helps remove environmental toxins (heavy metals, pesticides) and it is a great liver protector. Fresh food calories are relatively non-stimulating to glands and tend to stabilize weight. Add sea vegetables to your diet everyday.
Lemons. Fluids are vital. They help flush the body. Freshly squeezed lemonade is ideal. Its vitamin C - considered the detox vitamin helps convert toxins into a water - soluble form that is easily flushed away.
Watercress. Add a cupful to your salads, soups, and whole grain and fat free sandwiches. This peppery green leaf has a diuretic effect that helps move things through your system. And watercress is rich in minerals too.
Garlic. Add it to everything - salads, sauces, spreads. In addition to the bulb's cardio benefits, it activates liver enzymes that help filter out toxic debris.
Broccoli sprouts. Buy them at a health-food store. They pack 20 to 50 times more cancer-fighting, enzyme-stimulating activity into each bite than the grown-up vegetable.
Cabbage. There are two main types of detoxifying enzymes in the liver; this potent veggie helps activate both of them. Coleslaw, anyone?
Water based fruits. Melons, kiwi, oranges, grapefruits, apples and berries. They're full of almost all full of fiber, vitamin C, fiber, nutritious fluids, and all kinds of antioxidants. Nothing tastes better and is more refreshing than fresh honeydew melon, fresh berries, or a juicy apple.
Green tea. This antioxidant-rich brew is one of the healthiest ways to get more fluids into your system. Bonus: It contains catechins, which speed up liver activity. I like the decaf because I can’t handle too much caffeine.
Psyllium. A plant that is rich in soluble fiber, like oat bran, but more versatile. It picks up toxins (cholesterol too) and helps clear them out. Stir powdered psyllium into juice to help cleanse your colon, or have psyllium-fortified Bran Buds for breakfast.
Sesame seeds. They're credited with protecting liver cells from the damaging effects of alcohol and other chemicals. For a concentrated form, try tahini, the tasty sesame seed paste that’s a staple of Asian cooking.
Working out during a cellulite fat flushing purifying cleanse What Exercise Should I Undertake While Cleansing/ Detoxing?
As you can imagine, during a detox it is not a good idea to put your body under too much strain or stress through exercise. However, this does not mean that all exercise is forbidden during a detox (you don't get out of it that easily!).
The detox process aims to give your body an opportunity to cleanse itself, flushing any toxins from your system and therefore you want to know which exercise can help with this process and is recommended while detoxing. Aerobic (fat burning) exercise is one of the primary exercises to focus on when detoxing. Aerobic exercise increases your heart-rate into your 'fat burning zone' (intensity of around 6-7 out of 10 rate of perceived exertion) and encourages deep, diaphragmatic breathing that helps flush your lymphatic system while you are burning fat.
While resistance training is fantastic for you, it’s better to not do heavy mass building workouts while you are in the first seven days of a good detox. This type of exercise (along with high intensity aerobic training (HIT) can be quite stressful on the body during a detox and can therefore inhibit the body's ability to repair itself effectively. After the first seven days, you can go back to your heavy training.
Amelia, I recommend this type of focused programmed for seven days. Once you have kicked your body into purification, you can gradually add in more carbohydrates that are moderate to low glyemcic and natural.
If you like the way you feel and your body is responding well and your energy is high, keep going until you can achieve a modified version that will be easily maintained. This is one of the methods I used for several of my artists who had to look good fast in a bikini or less for a photo shoot.
I am so passionate about getting rid of cellulite that I made an entire program about it. I outline the foods, and celebrity secrets that cost many actresses thousands of dollars to find out. It's called my Quick Start Energy Program and it contains my Special Cellulite Solution MP3 Audio that goes into specific detail about cellulite reduction!
I wish you well with your career and with your life. I strongly encourage you to design your perfect life. Don’t settle for anything less than the best of everything. Only accept the perfect job, only date perfect men and most of all make yourself happy before you even think about getting married. Make sure you marry someone who celebrates You and all that you are and all that you desire to be.
God Bless and make it the Best Week Ever!

Bye-Bye Thunder Thighs!!!
"It is a miracle that I am standing before you wearing these skimpy red Nike shorts with out a hint of self-consciousness or shame. Two years ago I would have never dreamed of this day. As a matter of fact, it was exactly two years ago that I found myself in a department store dressing room bare to my underwear and in shock that my once “claim to fame” once beautiful legs had gone sour---to cottage cheese thighs that is. I stood there in shock and I realized that I would probably never see my legs thin, defined, or sculpted and free from the ripples, hills and valleys that are common to legs that are a victim of cellulite. “What a mess I am”, I thought to myself and that’s when the last ounce of self-hated filled my low self-esteem cup to over-flow.
Victoria's amazing Quick Start Energy Program literally caused the cellulite to VANISH from my legs! Now, my legs are smooth, silky, strong and defined. I have the confidence to wear shorter skirts, and yes, these fabulous red Nike shorts! In addition, her Vertical Training techniques have given me a slimming dancer’s body. Her program saved my life, and now I am helping others experience the same results. If you haven’t made up your mind yet to make a u-turn from thunder thighs to thighs that make men take a double look, then perhaps my success story will inspire you to have hope once more. Enjoy!!!"

I am 45 yrs old and 100 lbs overweight (since age 25.) Two weeks ago I walked out of my job on my lunch hour and decided I was not going back. Two days later I bought the bible at Target and the next day I went to Barnes and Nobel and was drawn to your book by the beautiful cover. I read it in about 3 days and thank God I found it.
You speak to the whole person, as we are not just our body. I went to the grocery store and immediately bought 6 min oatmeal, bran cereal, rye crisps and tons of fruits and veggies. With the help of your prayer suggestions and the bible quotes( I was already reading on my own), I knew I had found something profound!!
You can say I am on a life revival. I have always wanted to teach children and now I know somehow I will have the courage to conquer my weight correctly this time and succeed in some of my long forgotten goals. I also bought an in home walking tape to begin my exercise program and I have dusted off my exercise bike and I belong to the YWCA, so I will begin swimming too.
God Bless You.
