Book Description

A weight-loss plan that's specifically designed to target your number-one trouble spot: BELLY FAT

Belly fat is incredibly stealth and incredibly stubborn. It's also the most deadly, contributing to a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, and chronic illness than any other type of fat on your body. Finally, science has helped uncover a key dietary weapon in the fight against belly fat: Monounsaturated fatty acids, or MUFAs.

The Flat Belly Diet! will lead you step by step, day by day, meal by meal toward a flatter belly. The secret to this no-hunger plan is eating four meals a day, each featuring one of the five MUFAs: oils, olives, nuts and seeds, avocados, and dark chocolate.

With the Flat Belly Diet! you can:
  • Lose inches in just 4 days
  • Drop up to 15 pounds in 32 days
  • Eat delicious, satisfying foods
  • Never feel hungry
  • Boost your energy as the weight falls off!

Join the millions of people who have found the answer to losing their belly fat while eating satisfying and delicious foods.

The visceral fat (belly fat) properties of MUFAs have been featured on Dr. Oz. For a recap of the show go to the fan page called drozfans. This recaps each show. He did a game as to which item burned belly fat (such as prunes or olives?) the answer was of course always the MUFAS. When this book came out there were few studies on MUFAs and old school docs scoffed. Now after numerous studies it is accepted science in medical journals and, yes, even on the Dr. Oz show. While this already has a great rating and almost 300 reviews I know that one more positive won't change that...but knowing the science behind it and how it blew my mind in my own fast weight loss, there is no doubt I'm adding my positive review to the pile.

First off, I study the major medical changes in diets. That means, I scoff at the "university studies" you see in the news or magazines with "shocking" news that was only done in limited time on a limited number of people, not using things like a hyperbolic chamber to measure caloric expenditure etc. Some diet news is simply not regulated and only done to MAKE the news.

However, there are other medical studies that are accepted as fact and have changed dieting as well as updated medical journals of physicians...because they are done as long as an 8 year study with almost a thousand people or with major medical controlled studies at, for example, Johns Hopkins University.

These I discuss with clients and these go into the medical journal as fact and working.

And this book took ALL of them into each meal.

I am small, I work out often, I have never been able to go over 1,300 calories per day however when I want to lose weight. And I'm always hungry...

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a fab diet July 2, 2011
By fifi
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really liked this book and diet. I am 37, exercise 5 times a week (an hour each time) and still couldn't loose my muffin top... so I decided to try this diet. I have now been on it 3 weeks and have lost 6 lbs and and inch off my waist. True, this diet does adhere to the things you should be sticking to anyway... portion control, more vegetables and whole grains. But I think where it is really successful is educating you on all the sodium in foods; especially processed. This is a "low sodium" diet and I can tell you from experience the anti bloating really has made a difference for me. You could also describe it as more of a "natural diet".. or maybe "Mediterannean" diet is a better word.. getting rid of all that processed crap available in stores that say it's lo-cal/low fat but full of other stuff you shouldn't really be eating anyway (like sodium).

They do recommend some brands of things that are hard to find, but it tells you in the book how to substitute as long as it has similar ingredients and calories. The diet can be a little pricey to start with... lots of nuts and so forth.. but they last a long time so your not buying them every week. I purchased mine at BJ's and Trader Joes where they are cheaper. I'm sure if you stopped buying all the other stuff (chips, dips,sauces, etc) the cost would probably even out.
I find this diet is really successful for me because it's not very restrictive, so I know I can stick to it and really simple to follow.

If you are considering buying this book, I found the pocket book a bit more helpful with the food menu's, recipes and shopping. The cookbook is also good. So maybe just get this one from the library and actually buy the pocket guide.
It worked for me anyway... hope you found this helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars 63 yr old grandfather March 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am 63 yrs old and grandfather of 6 soon to be 7 grandchildren. I am in the best physical condition of my life due to this diet and regular "hard" excercise. I lost 15 pounds in 30 days, 10 pounds in the first 4 days! This diet is the answer for me as to how exactly to change my eating habits and eating lifestyle in a way that will not leave me hungry for the food or other items that made me overweight. The most remarkable results were my blood test after the 30 days. My total Cholesterol is 140 which is the lowest in my life! All the other results were also the best, my good cholesterol was up, bad Cholesterol down and triglicerides the lowest ever. I and my doctor are elated over these results. If you are borderline dieabetic as I am or have high Cholesterol as I did you must follow this diet to correct it. you'll be amazed how good the food is and will not miss the bad stuff you are eating now. This will show you how to replace the bad fat with good fat and maintain a healthy lifestyle. It's never to late to start so do it now, I guarentee this diet works. Thank you,

5.0 out of 5 stars My husband and I love this diet. August 25, 2009
This diet works if you read the book and stay with the program. My husband lost over 15 pounds in six weeks, and I lost 12 pounds. This is the easiest diet in the world to stay on. The recipes are easy and satisfying. We are NEVER hungry. I love this diet. In fact, the program has become a way of life for us, and I cannot imagine ever going back. I now weigh 124 lbs. The weight literally melts away. It's brilliant.
