Flat and Healthy Belly

Ask your doctor about belly fat. You will learn about a special kind of fat that resides deep within your torso. This so called `visceral fat' is the kind of fat that is the most difficult to get rid of. Not only that -- too much of visceral fat is also dangerous to your health.

The co-author of the book, Cynthia Sass, has developed a "belly-shrinking eating plan that is grounded in the latest and most credible science and offers the most filling, satisfying, and delicious meals that you will ever have the pleasure of eating." However Liz Vacareillo's vision went beyond food. In her book she proposes mental tips, tricks and strategies that are designed to inspire, motivate, and "set you up for a better relationship with food for the rest of your life!"

The Flat Belly Diet Program takes 32 days and it is divided into two parts - the Four-Day Anti-Bloat Jumpstart, and the Four-Week Eating Plan. These 32 days is just enough time for one to make appropriate dietary changes leading to a new lifestyle. After you learn the program and observe desired changes in your body, Liz gives you the tools to keep your belly flat for the rest of your life.

The program is not only about getting your body to fit your desired dress size, but it is also (and especially so) about feeling confident, powerful and proud of you body. Essentially Liz offers to her readers to adapt a new way of living. And this is what appeals most to me. The new lifestyle that results not only in a flat belly, but that also has a detoxifying effect and lets you live healthier and longer. This is a good continuation of the idea so well presented in "Can We Live 150 Years" --Your Body Maintenance Handbook" with a few chapters specifically devoted to dieting programs and body cleansing. To properly understand how your body works and to get the most of the program I suggest reading "Your Body Maintenance Handbook" BEFORE "Flat Belly Diet."

Oprah and Rachel Ray had the authors and some test cases on their shows and I thought it made sense. I purchased their book on-line and was disappointed to discover it did not include anything regarding being a vegetarian. I went online, wrote to their site, was contacted immediately and told someone would get back to me. I'm still waiting. I was so excited to get started but here I am - still waiting.

    Not my fav life style change book, aka diet book.

    My daughter and I both decided we wanted to try out this book with the motivating title. I really NEED a flat belly, my daughter pretty much has one, but she has just a little pooch. We both started this program with different goals in mind. I am looking to lose 30 pounds; she was looking to lose 10. We began the 4 day anti-bloat program, and I will say that it was pretty doable, but 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds on cereal is a lot of seeds! We made it through the 4 days and I totally lost interest. For the life of me I could not get motivated to pick from the menus they had listed. My daughter continued with the program for another 4 weeks. She said she liked how she felt, even though neither one of us had lost any weight. Even at the end of the 4 day anti-bloat we had not lost any weight or inches. By the end of 4 weeks, "L" had only lost 3 pounds and a total of 2", and believe me, she followed this plan religiously! I on the other hand, could not get into it. The one thing we took away from it was adding nuts to breakfast items, and the sassy water. We still drink that as we found it very refreshing.

    I'll save you some time and money:

    Eat more mono-unsaturated fatty acids. That's the whole book. If you've done a lot of reading on diet, this book is nothing new. So for me, it was a disappointing recap. But it is a nicely laid-out compact version of a diet that truly is healthy. I just think they stretched the book into more than its worth. I built it up and was so excited to get it, it just didn't measure up. But all the information is good and would be a good primer for someone who wants to know the difference between good and bad fats. I just wish I hadn't spent the money. Prevention is becoming more and more like that to me; but that could just be me. :)
