Driven by the excellent reviews and by my enjoyment of Prevention's "Flat Belly Diet" book I decided to purchase this book.

Whether it was planned to sound like the popular diet or merely a coincidence, it is important to note that this book is NOT a companion to Prevention's "Flat Belly Diet". With the title I had expected the book to tie in to Prevention's popular plan but it does not. This book makes use of artificial sugar (splenda), does not include MUFAs etc. The two books are totally unrelated. So if you are looking for a cook book for the Prevention book "Flat Belly Diet" you will want to look elsewhere.

The cookbook "The Everything Flat Belly Diet" boasts many good points. The authors open with a discussion on belly fat and share how what you eat is 80 percent responsible for your weight. They include tips on getting the most for your calorie buck and they include step by step directions for abdominal exercises - what to do and when to do them. Another nice factor in the book is the tidbits the authors add to the end of each recipe. Little tips like when to eat your largest meal, using lettuce instead of bread etc.

The authors include 300 recipes they claim will help you shed belly fat. Each recipe includes calories, fat, carbs, protein, sodium and fiber. Recipes are laid out in an easy to read fashion in the 292 page soft cover book. Chapters include; Flat Belly Philosophy, Rise and Shine, It's Breakfast Time!, Lunch Break, Snack Time and more.

The main disappointment in this book is some of the recipes. I was stunned as I read through a few of them. I like simple but these were to simple. For example;

Carrot Dippers (Carrot Sticks, Peanut Butter)
Dip carrots in peanut butter and enjoy.

Who doesn't want a flatter belly? Probably 99% of people would give anything to have a flatter abdomen. It is somewhat ironic that Fitz Koehler, a fitness expert who has helped many celebrities including the wonderful Dr. Oz, reveals in the introductory chapter that "crunches are not the most important factor affecting your waistline." She goes on to tell us that our eating habits are about 80% responsible for our weight. Do you know how many miles a 150 pound person would have to run to reduce his/her weight by 10 pounds . . . provided there were no changes in diet? Are you ready? Three hundred and sixty miles . . . Yes you read that right 360 miles! Yipes . . . it would take me a long, long time to run that many miles. You too?

The authors tell us that it is much easier to eat a little less every day than to run off the extra calories taken in through our culinary excesses. Makes sense, huh?

I think I said something like this is my book, too, but the authors compare calories to money, telling us we need to spend our calories wisely. Most Americans simply don't. They'll complain about the cost of organic Romaine, yet when you run into them in snack aisle at the grocery store you'll see them purchasing a $4.00 bag of potato chips. What are they getting for their money? Fat, calories, and very little nutritional value.

This book is great for people who enjoy meat, although a vegetarian chapter is included for those who don't. You'll find 300 flat belly recipes including beef, pork, poultry, seafood, and even desserts.

While I generally don't do meat, there are a couple people living with me who do . . . and who could definitely benefit from a healthier diet. Looking for a flatter belly . . . then buy this book!

Who doesn't want a flat belly, but did you realize that people with flat bellies are less likely to develop, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer? The Everything Flat Belly Cookbook discusses combining a healthy lifestyle and moderate workout routine with recipes that help to eliminate the belly bulge.

Do you keep a food diary? Most people are way off when they just try to estimate how many calories they eat each day. Tracking your caloric intake is the only way to really know how many calories you are consuming. What about carbs, do you crave them like me? If so, it is recommended that you consume your carbs at breakfast only when you need the energy to fuel your day. Eating carbs in the evening usually ends up as extra fat as we are less likely to burn them off.

This book is not a diet book, but rather a book that guides you to start making more sensible eating choices. It also outlines some sensible exercises to strengthen abdominal and back muscles while losing a few pounds by making better food choices. The book has chapters that cover, Breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner menus and recipes. There is a section on salads, a vegetarian, seafood, poultry, and beef/pork section. In addition, there are soups/stews, pizzas, appetizers, dips/spreads and dressings, side dishes, and my favorite: not so sinful desserts.

The thing that really sold me on this book was the fact that MOST of the 300 recipes, look so simple to prepare. The recipes are low in calories and low in fat, and many are high in fiber and protein as well, and there were so very many that sounded like they would appeal to me as well. Usually when I borrow a cookbook from the library as I did in this case, I'll just copy the recipes that appeal to me, but this book had so many recipes that I wanted to try, that I ended up ordering it.
