This book is really good. I like that it has all of the basic information about the Flat Belly Diet in the beginning, so if one were to want to do the flat belly diet they really only need the cookbook and can save money not buying the other book (which explains the diet but doesn't have any recipes). I have tried several recipes and they have all been very good. I like that they are healthy recipes with flavor and for the most part fairly easy to make. For me, personally, sticking to the actual diet part is not easy because I think it is a little time consuming and can be a little expensive. But I wanted this more to understand the diet and see how it could fit into my lifestyle of eating healthy. And it does! I would recommend this book. It offers recipes for: breakfast, soups & sandwiches, vegetarian, seafood, poultry, meats, snacks, and desserts. The other thing that is great about this book is that for each recipe it tells you how long it takes to make, how many servings, the nutrition info (calories, protein, carbs, fat, sat fat, cholesterol, sodium and fiber)and the MUFA (monounsaturated fats). It also tells you for each recipe what to pair it with to make it a "complete" MUFA meal and then tells you the total caloric intake if you do pair it with the suggestion. The other thing that I do like about this book is that it offers a planned out 14 day meal plan in the appendix and a MUFA serving chart (lists each MUFA, the serving size and the calories). User friendly. Good recipes. Good information.

I decided to cook every recipe in this book for my new years resolution. So far I have made 40 recipes from this cookbook, and we have loved all but 2. It is a very family friendly cookbook. I have 3 children, 17, 15 and 7, many of the recipes my kids have asked for again! My daughter loves the Pad Thai, this is now a staple in our home. I would recommend this book to anyone with a picky family, they will be surprised. And most important my Belly is flatter : )

The diet works and seems to target the belly. My wife and I both have lost over 10 lbs. in less than 4 weeks. I've lost enough to have to tighten my belt a notch. I can tell she has lost weight too.

The down side is the recipes for the most part are not that simple, and not your everyday ingredients. (Pine nuts at $10 for a half pound? Come on.) You should be able to find a dozen or so recipes that you like and can afford to make. That will do to get you through a couple weeks to lose some weight, and inches. It would be tough to make this a life style diet though.

If you don't like olives or avocados, can't eat nuts, or just don't have time to prepare meals, this may not be for you. As always, save some money and look for a used book.

I bought both the Flat Belly Diet Guide and the Cookbook. Both have been very helpful. I've made many meals for myself using this cookbook; the pesto is to die for and very easy to make. Once you get the hang of it, you can figure out other meals as well. I lost 5 lbs my first week -- and the only other time I lost that in a week was when I was on a one week Quick Start Program, which is about 800 calories. On the Flat Belly Diet I had 1400 calories, and that's what I'm still eating. The 2nd week I lost 3 lbs -- I've only been on this program for 2 1/2 weeks, but have lost 1 3/4" on my waist. My clothes are fitting much better and I'm never hungry. I've always had a yogurt in the afternoon and I still do, however I now add some sunflower seeds and some nutty granola. I also put sunflowers in my cereal, including oatmeal, in homecooked muffins, etc. I love pizza and now I make my own using whole wheat flour, plenty of veggies and lots of sliced black olives in order to get my MUFA's. It seems I can eat almost anything I want as long as I stay away from sugary foods and add MUFA's to everything else!! Actually I sometimes have a bowl of ice cream, but I doctor it up -- that's right -- sunflower seeds and nuts to the rescue again. I highly recommend these books and this diet!! Thanks Amazon for carrying these items.

I don't know why Amazon appears not to be carrying this cookbook, but I was able to obtain it for a good price from another seller on Amazon. You can also buy it on the flatbellydiet.com website (it's a little less expensive there and they offer free shipping and 21-day free trial). However you purchase this book, it is well worth the price. The book first explains the basic principles of the Flat Belly Diet (which I can tell you from first hand experience is very effective for targeting belly fat): Eat a MUFA at every meal (you know, monounsaturated fats, like olives, olive oil, dark chocolate, avocado, certain nuts); limit your meals to 400 calories; don't go more than four hours without eating. That's it! Obviously there are refinements, and more rules to help you get the most out of the diet, but at heart it is a simple, flexible, diet that works.

That said, the authors give many ideas for how to make this diet even easier (i.e., like how to shop and plan effectively), and a large number of recipes that are pretty straightforward as well as making optimal use of the MUFAs. They recognize the importance of having some variety in your foods as well as the need to keep it relatively simple. I have already tried a few of the recipes (Chicken Piccata and Stuffed Mushrooms). Both were pretty easy to cook, and they really tasted great! I am so glad that I invested in this book! It is worth its weight in dark chocolate!
