The Original Fat Flush Water: Cran-Water

The real Fat Flush Water that started it all!

Bust bloat and banish cellulite by sipping our signature cran-water combo as part of your daily hydration.


1 oz 100% unsweetened cranberry juice
7 oz water


Mix the juice and water.
*Tip: Make larger batches and keep in a pitcher for easy access, all day!

Your liver is the body’s purifier, but a liver clogged with poisons or excess fats can’t perform its fat-burning duties. Unsweetened cranberry juice will help cleanse so it can do its job! This refreshingly tart beverage may be the single most important step you ever take to reach your weight loss goals and improve your health.

Cranberry juice is packed with flavonoids, enzymes, and organic acids (such as malic acid, citric acid, and quinic acid) which have an emulsifying effect on stubborn fat deposits in the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system acts as the body’s “garbage collector” and transports all kinds of waste products not processed by the liver. This explains why our cran-water has been effective against cellulite and is the original Fat Flush water!

    how many calories is in 8oz cranwater, in the breakfast smoothie (banana/strawberry) and in the lifelong cocktail?

      Hi Kate! The Fat Flush Plan isn’t a calorie counting program. However, if you’re interested in tracking your caloric intake, there are lots of free calorie counters online that work perfectly!

      Best of luck!

        Kate that is a good question. I would like to know that question also. I am a person who keeps track of my calories in order to keep in shape or to lose weight. I feel that was a poor response.

          Hi Agatsos – We are so sorry that you weren’t pleased with our response. Essentially, we were referring Kate to check the calories for her cran-water by plugging in the ingredients to a calorie counting website or app. With any recipe there can be variation depending on the specific ingredients/brands used and the ratios. All the best, Fat FLush Staff

          you can do it yourself, they don’t know which cranberry juice you’ll use and it’s one of the easiest things to calculate, if you are as you say a person that keeps track of your calories you should know that… Myfitnesspal for one is a great tool for calorie tracking…

        The program is terrific but oting heavy bottles of cranberry juice home is a problem. What about organic cranberry juice concentrates? I find that one teaspoon of concentrate in 65 ounces of water achieves the same color as the juice. Are there any Fat Flush guidelines concerning organic cranberry juice concentrate instead of juice?

        • ffadmin January 28, 2019 - 4:48 pm Reply

          Hi Donna – Thank you for messaging us. It’s recommended to use 2 Tablespoons of Organic Cranberry Juice Concentrate to 1 quart of filtered water. Hope this information is helpful!

        Can you be more specific? I doubt any supplement specifically says that you can or can’t take with the Life long cocktail. Can supplements be taken with psyllium and cranberry juice??

        • admin February 5, 2013 - 9:58 am Reply

          Hi Vicki! Staggering your psyllium with supplement dosage is a good idea, if no other instructions are available. However, it’s probably good to ask your supplement source about interactions with psyllium, specifically. (Or doctor if you’re taking medications.)

        • Will April 28, 2018 - 11:59 am Reply

          Supplements ordinarily should be taken at least 2hrs away from any psyllium before or after . If you eat a more Plant Based diet and detox you shouldn’t worry about calories your body knows when it’s right

          • ffadmin May 10, 2018 - 3:11 pm

            Hello Will! You’re right, psyllium husk should be taken away from supplements in order not to interfere with the absorption of nutrients. Psyllium Husk used to be recommended on the original Fat Flush Plan. In The New Fat Flush Plan, psyllium husk is no longer suggested. Chia seeds and flaxseed oil are now recommended, much better sources of fiber! Hope this helps!

          Hi Susan! Gold star to you for reading those labels! Part 2 of label-reading (just as important, and perhaps more so than the Nutrition Facts chart) is reading the Ingredients List. That’s where you catch their sneaky tricks! πŸ™‚ It might contain 100% juice, but it could also contain additives like artificial sweeteners and other ingredients that ‘up’ the sugar ante. They sneak those in under the radar by declaring “100% juice” on the front of the label.

            Hi in butting in to share, in hopes that. This helps people; a new discovery; as I was looking for cranberry juice in grocery store today; was, several labels clearly stating 100% cranberry juice. However the fine print should be noted. On the same bottle it states made from 4 juice blends and other concentrates. For best results 100% + ORGANIC + Not from concentrate should all be on the bottle you buy of cranberry juice. Regardless of the brand. Also avoid the from concentrates on all juice! Thank You.

    I am excited to hear about this simple recipe of pure cranberry juice and water to flush fat and cellulite. Due to my severe GERD water is primarily the only thing I drink. Can cran water be my permanent replacement or is cran water only recommended for a specific time frame. Thank you.

    • admin July 8, 2013 - 1:40 pm Reply

      Hi Karen! As a general rule, we recommend drinking 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water daily– the Cran-Water can count towards that and can be part of your daily regimen. Many of our Fat Flushers have been drinking Cran-Water daily for years! If you feel you may have a problem tolerating it, you can always work your way up to the standard 8 ounces of cranberry juice daily or drink a reduced amount in your water (dilute the juice a bit more).

  • Axanthia Bursing July 17, 2013 - 6:14 am Reply

    I just started today with the cran flush. I am wondering. Do i just need to drink the 64 oz of diluted a day a day and thats it? Does it matter if its before or after meals? Thanks!

    • admin July 17, 2013 - 8:30 am Reply

      Hi Axanthia! Sip the Cran-Water throughout the day- with meals and/or between meals- as you would drink regular water throughout the day.

      • Axanthia Bursing July 17, 2013 - 1:40 pm Reply

        thanks. Also the drink is really tart for me. Would cranberry pills be just as effective?

        • admin July 17, 2013 - 2:27 pm Reply

          It may be tart to your taste-buds if you’re used to juices with added sugar. Don’t worry- just as they become accustomed to the sugar, they’ll adjust to live without it too! πŸ™‚ Maybe dilute with a bit more water at the beginning and work up to the full 8 ounces. We’ve found that capsules aren’t as effective because the liquid cranberry juice is absorbed immediately into the system. The capsules can even be hard to digest for some people.

    • admin July 25, 2013 - 8:51 am Reply

      Hi Darla! Pure cranberry juice will be in the fruit juice aisle in a regular grocery store. Read the labels carefully!! Look for “unsweetened” cranberry juice. The brand we’ve found most commonly sold is Knudson’s, in a glass bottle with a white label. (Might be a good idea, while you’re on the computer, to Google it and take a look so you know what to look for when you’re at the store.) They do sell Knudson’s at Wal-Mart.

      Hi Barbara! You could absolutely make your own cranberry juice. Most people find it more convenient to buy juice, but if you have a juicer that’s good too.

      Hi Julie! If it is indeed 100% pure unsweetened cranberry juice, there won’t be a need for “Diet” on the label. Seeing that is a red flag and indicates the manufacturer made some adjustments to the product- could be flavor (adding/eliminating sweetener) or calorie content…neither of which are necessary with straight, 100% unsweetened cranberry juice. Check the ingredients closely! There should only be 2-3: water & cranberry juice (sometimes cranberry juice concentrate)- and that’s it. That’s the one you want. πŸ™‚

      Hi Ashley! The recommended daily amount is 64 ounces. 1 “helping” of Cran-Water is 8 ounces.

Once you have the juice, you can add water to make Cran-Water by following this recipe. (It’s the official recipe for the Fat Flush Plan, included in the book.) Then you’re ready to sip!

      Hi Jim! Cranwater is very cleansing for the kidneys and helps them keep a beneficial pH.

    Hi! I’ve been seeing this a lot. Doed it help with the belly fat loss (along with good diet and exercise)? Thanks!

  • Marcia Chaisson December 24, 2014 - 4:24 am Reply

    First day of drinking the juice I lost 4 lbs. of water weight. Yes the taste is tart but you get used to it. I’m switching from a green tea with aspartame drink to this and glad I made the switch!
    Also should mention drinking cranberry is good for dental health!

      Hi Marcia! Awesome!! So glad you’re already seeing great results! (Aren’t cranberries amazing?!)

    What about using diet cranberry juice?

    • Admin February 19, 2015 - 8:49 am Reply

      Hi Casandra! We advise avoiding “diet” foods (drinks included) because they are usually packed with artificial ingredients, chemicals, sweeteners etc. Look for 100% unsweetened cranberry juice. If you aren’t sure if you’ve found the right juice, look at the ingredient list on the label. It should only contain a few things– cranberry juice and water.

    Trader Joe’s has a very good 100% cranberry juice at a great price, $3.99.

    Does the cranberry juice help clean the lymphatic system too?

    • Admin May 11, 2015 - 8:51 am Reply

      Hi Joanna – Yes it does! Cranberry acts as a natural diuretic and helps to flush your system of excess fluid. We also recommend rebounding daily on a mini trampoline to keep the lymphatic system draining properly.

    Does the cran water can water cause one to urinate a lot, because I have been drinking it for two weeks now and I am going very frequently and voiding large amounts. I drank water consistently before I started drinking the cran water and I just wondered if this increased output was a result of the cran water.

    • Admin May 11, 2015 - 8:48 am Reply

      Hi Rose, The cran-water does act as a natural diuretic and helps to flush out fluid retained in your cells. Even if you normally drink large amounts of water reguarly, you will find that you’re heading to the bathroom more frequently with cran-water and hopefully you’ll start to see bloat and cellulite disappear!

    I heard about you FFW, through a dear friend! Can you tell me is there a need for a specific water when mixing with the cranberry juice(ie… “Distilled”, spring, natural, or tap?


    • Admin May 11, 2015 - 8:44 am Reply

      Hi Dominique – We would recommend using filtered water to ensure you aren’t getting any parasites, heavy metals and chlorine.

    Can I mix the cranberry with no sodium sparkling water?

    • Admin May 11, 2015 - 9:22 am Reply

      Not on a daily basis because anything that is bubbly is high in phosphoric acid which thwarts calcium absorption and is also detrimental to HCl production.

    If you add mint and/or lime slices to the fat flush cranwater, does that diminish it’s effect?

    • Admin June 16, 2015 - 12:26 pm Reply

      Hi Mary, the headaches are a normal part of the detox process for many people and they shouldn’t last longer than a few days. If they are becoming too intense you can try diluting the cran-water by half and see if that helps.

    Do you drink this fat flush for a recommended time or can you drink as long as you want!

      Hi Pamela, the cran-water is required for phase 1, and optional for phases 2 and 3, So you can drink it as long as you want! We drink it all the time.

  • Abby October 10, 2015 - 7:20 pm Reply

    Hi I bought unsweetened cranberry juice by ocean spray, but I am curious about what the results of this are meant to be? Do you lose weight or does this make it it easier to lose weight? Also do you have any good recipe or meals and snacks that can go in partnership with this juice? Thank you very much

    • ffadmin October 13, 2015 - 8:20 pm Reply

      Hi Abby, thanks for the great questions.
      The cran-water helps your body remove wastes, especially during a detox. It also helps with water retention and cleaning up cellulite.
      When your the liver is clogged up it can’t perform fat burning as efficiently as it should, so ‘unclogging’ it helps you lose weight more effectively.
      We have lots of great cran-inspired recipes on our site, but maybe try this Cranberry Brisket for dinner time!

    Why isn’t Stevia mentioned anymore????

    • ffadmin June 13, 2016 - 4:15 pm Reply

      It is still an approved Fat Flush ingredient and can be added to your cran-water if you’d like.

    Wow! My stevia question keeps disappearing. Losing all respect for you. Admit if you were wrong, tell us and move on. Not impressed

    • ffadmin June 13, 2016 - 4:18 pm Reply

      Sorry Susie – it looks like our spam guard caught your post for some reason. Stevia is still an approved Fat Flush ingredient, but many people find they don’t need to add it to Cran-water and there are a number of Fat Flushers who have found that stevia does not agree with them. It is definitely a legal (and optional) ingredient in cran-water.

    Im a diabetic person what is the recommended to drink the cran water morning or afternoon.
    Is it also safe to make a cran water without boiling it. Thanks

    • ffadmin June 28, 2016 - 3:04 pm Reply

      Hi Michael – You can make cran-water by simply adding 100% unsweetened cranberry juice to water–no boiling required. You can buy the cranberry juice bottled at your local health food store or supermarket (often in the health food section). Some of the most common brands are Simple Truth, Knudsen, Trader Joe’s and Sun Mountain. For most people we recommend drinking up to 64 oz of cran-water spread throughout the day, but you may need to adjust for your blood sugar needs. As that is such an individual factor, we can’t say for sure when would be the best time for you to consume.

  • floyd October 3, 2016 - 7:39 pm Reply

    I have been taking cranberry supplements (450 mg a day) for years. There has been no fat burning effect whatsoever. And of course, these tablets have zero sugar and zero carbs. SO how is sugar-rich cranberry juice (even if unsweetened) supposed to burn fat? One of these tablets has the oxalate and citrate of several liters of cranberry juice.

    • ffadmin October 14, 2016 - 5:09 pm Reply

      Cranberry does not burn fat. It acts as a natural diuretic to help flush out water-laden tissues which in turn helps minimize cellulite and get rid of excess bloat and water retention.

    Can you drink the 7 ounce straight without him diluting. Why mix with water?

    • ffadmin November 21, 2016 - 4:27 pm Reply

      Hi Soresa – 100% unsweetened cranberry is very potent and very tart. A little bit truly goes a long way. It’s also important that you drink adequate water to flush out bloat so the two work hand in hand.

    Hi: for those that do not have an in home water filtration system, what type of water would you suggest using for this drink? (Spring, distilled,etc.) Any particular brand?

  • Tiffany November 29, 2016 - 12:23 am Reply

    What type of water would you recommend using if you do not have a filter on your tap? Do you suggest bottled spring water?

    • ffadmin November 29, 2016 - 8:35 pm Reply

      Hi Tiffany – Great question! We would recommend getting a filter that can be attached to your kitchen faucet – you can find these for a reasonable cost and there are models that simply attach to the end of the faucet for those who aren’t able to permanently install a system. This will be much more cost effective than bottled water in the long run without the concern of BPA from the plastic bottles. Spring water typically tends to be purer than simply purified bottled water like Dasani, Aquafina or Nestle which are often just cleaned up city water. You can find resources online that rank bottled water brands to find the best option.

  • caro June 1, 2017 - 8:16 pm Reply

    So I may have made a mistake. I bought diet ocean spray because it has less than 1g of sugar per 8oz serving, which I was hoping would be close enough. But it also only has 7% juice which is why I have a feeling this particular one won’t work or will just take a lot longer vs 100% juice. I’m new at this, I don’t usually read food labels.

    • ffadmin June 1, 2017 - 8:46 pm Reply

      Hi Caro – Great question! We absolutely DO NOT recommend using Diet Ocean Spray – first of all you really need the 100% cranberry juice to work properly. Also, “diet” usually means that it contains artificial sweeteners – we looked up a label for this product and it appears to contain “sucralose” which is Splenda. You definitely want to avoid this. Also, avoid the Ocean Spray 100% juice cranberry cocktail as it does not contain 100% cranberry juice – it contains other juices to sweeten it like apple, pear, grape, etc. Ultimately no matter what you buy it should ONLY contain cranberry juice and possibly water. It may be in the health food section of your store and usually is in a smaller glass bottle.

      Hi Trenelle – Everyone’s body is different, but you should start noticing that water weight comes off quickly! The cranberry should help with stablizing blood sugar, but we highly recommend getting a copy of The NEW Fat Flush Plan. It’s a great program and many with type 2 diabetes have found success on the plan!

      Hello – We suggest using raw apple cider vinegar diluted with filtered water. Hope this information is helpful!
