You may have heard about it on Good Morning America. Or, a
friend may already be raving about it. It's the amazing new
diet called the "Flat Belly Diet". The reason you've heard
about it is because ... it works! Even better, it's simple
and easy to follow. What better way to lose the extra pounds
you gained over the Holidays?
The diet was created by the folks at Prevention Magazine. It
was created by Prevention magazine's Editor in Chief Liz
Vaccariello and Nutrition Editor Cynthia Sass. A number of
dieters have raved about the diet. For example, one 46 year
old lost twelve pounds in just over a month ... and over 11
The mantra of the Flat Belly Diet is "A MUFA at every meal".
What's a "MUFA" you ask?
A MUFA (MOO-fah) is a term that nutritionists have used for
years. It's an acronym for "monounsaturated fatty acid" ...
the "good" kind of fat. A MUFA is a type of heart-healthy,
disease-fighting, "good" fat found in foods like almonds,
peanut butter, olive oil, avocado, even chocolate. MUFAs are
an unsaturated fat, and have the exact opposite effect of
the unhealthy saturated and trans fats you've heard about in
the news. According to exciting new research, MUFAs can
actually help you lose weight, specifically around your
According to the folks at Prevention Magazine, a number of
studies have shown that a diet rich in MUFAs is linked to a
reduction in LDL cholesterol, the kind that clogs up
arteries, and a boost in HDL, the kind that sweeps
cholesterol out of the arteries and clears it from the body.
They can also lower the risk of heart disease
and improve insulin.
But that's not all. Not only are MUFAs healthy, but they are
also satisfying and delicious in and of themselves. Eating a
MUFA with every meal makes sure that you are satisfied,
healthy, and don't feel deprived in this diet. Foods packed
with MUFAs include delicious foods such as olive oil (use it
as a delicious salad dressing), chocolate chips (dessert on
a diet? Yes!) These delicious foods (and many others) are
what make the Flat Belly Diet different. This is a diet
everyone can stick to, and see awesome results.
Here's a brief overview of what the diet involves:
- Start with a Four-Day Anti-Bloat Jumpstart, and add
- A daily dose of Sassy Water and
- A Mind Trick at every meal plus
- A Four-Week Eating Plan, comprised of
- Three 400-calorie meals a day of your choice and
- One 400-calorie Snack Pack of your choice and
- One daily Core Confidence reflection
- An Optional Exercise Program, plus
The foundation for a way of life you can continue for
The Flat Belly diet centers around five foods that have
these good fats in them naturally and those five food groups
are oils, chocolate, nuts and seeds, olives, and avocados.
You simply need to eat one serving from any of these groups
at a meal. All meals should be around 400 calories, enough
to curb your hunger but not to stuff yourself. This diet
will give you energy and will melt off the stubborn belly
One of the key features of the Flat Belly Diet is its
flexibility. The meals and foods have been selected to
accommodate our hectic lives. If you are short on time, you
can easily assemble healthy and delicious meals without
breaking your diet. Many of the meals require little or no
cooking. Other meals are more complex and can be enjoyed by
the whole family or even guests on special occasions. You
can even get creative. If you don't like a suggested meal,
mix and match other meals. Flexibility is one reason why
this diet is one of the best diets ever!
