By Chandler #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on September 26, 2011
Format: Paperback
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...

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 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.

PS.
