COFFEE: The Skinny Beverage
By Cal Orey
Did you know? Spas around the globe include java to help boost your metabolism, energize and calm you—golden keys to getting and staying slim. Follow this jump-start fast semi-fasting diet plan and lose up to 7 pounds in 2 days (depending on your weight and metabolism).
Since biblical times, the health conscious and spa goers have turned to juice fasting for its body-cleansing and weight-loss benefits. Natural fruit and vegetables flush toxins from your body. And they flush away fat, too. What’s more, coffee can speed up the weight loss, too. Eating this way isn’t just about weight loss; it’s about cleaning out your digestive system. You’ll not only feel thinner, you’ll also feel positively thinner.
Enter The Coffee Diet. Since the thirties on into the fifties, Hollywood dieters have turned to the slimming power of this wonder citrus—and coffee.
The grapefruit’s status as the ideal diet food was born when researchers found evidence that it contains fat-dissolving compounds. Further elevating the fruit’s status in the world of weight loss: It’s low cal, fat-free, fiber-rich, vitamin-packed and satisfying.
- Grapefruit: One medium grapefruit has just 74 calories, less than 1 gram of fat, and it is a good source of fiber.
- Eggs: One medium-boiled egg has only 69 calories. Try eating just the hard-cooked egg white—it’s low in fat and calories and high in the amino acid cysteine, a skin supporting nutrient.
- Coffee: Plus, the coffee—black—acts as an appetite suppressant, making this plan easier to stick with.

Tips: Consult your doctor before starting this 2 day semi-fast or any weight-loss regimen. Drink six to eight 8-ounce glasses of water and/or herbal tea daily (including coffee). Use spices such as cinnamon to enhance the flavor of grapefruit and vinegar for vegetables. Excerpted and adapted from The Healing Powers of Coffee (Kensington).
To get the complete quickie diet that really works--for women and men--and why (plus how to smooth the appearance of cellulite and detox your body); grab a copy of The Healing Powers of Coffee! Penned by the former Woman's World diet and nutrition columnist, author of more than a dozen weight-loss mini mags, including "Cool Ways To Fight Fat" and "From Firm To Fat At Any Age"... As the coffee book author, I practice what I preach. I savor flavored coffee in the a.m., and then hit the swimming pool/walk the dog duo.
