Unlike those no-eating cleanses that leave you hungry and headachey, ours does the trick without deprivation. The secret? Yummy foods that are loaded with Resistant Starch (RS), a metabolism-boosting carb that keeps you feeling full longer. This CarbLovers “cleanse” gives you about 1,230 calories a day, including a Fat-Flushing Cooler that may help you burn an extra 80 calories daily.

Stick with this plan for five days, and lose up to five pounds. (You can do it for up to seven days, max.)
