    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. <BR/><BR/>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!" <BR/><BR/>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. <BR/><BR/>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."

    Best ever for loseing weight

    My husband and I are finding the "Flat Belly Diet" easy to follow and it has food you really want to eat. We have only used this book a month and I have lost 12lb and my husband 15lb. It has sugestions for the times when you have to grab a quick lunch from a resturant. Also if you get the "Flat Belly Diet Cookbook", you get all the tools you need to lose weight and keep it off. Both books are great! This one really works and it is balanced.

    You may buy the book but not their support

    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.

    12lbs down and counting!The PERFECT diet for ridding the baby fat! And I SUCK at diets!

    I began the FBD on 1/10/2009. To date, I have lost 12lbs and 6.5 inches around my stomach... and I am continuing to lose the weight! This diet, no, lifestyle augmentation has made a dramatic, positive impact on me and my family. I would reccomend the FBD to anyone who has had ENOUGH!!!
    For me, after having two children, my body was SCREAMING for a wakeup call. My "ah-ha moment" appeared to me when I saw a few pictures of myself at a wedding. I looked H-U-G-E! I saw the diet online, and looked into it. It wasn't until my doctor suggested it to me, when I purchased the book online... it's cheaper online!

    The first four days aren't a cake walk, but, hey... it's only 4 days!! HELLO??! Totally 'do'able. And, if you can get some exercise in 3 times a week-- or more-- then weight will melt off of you. The food is wonderful and low sodium and filling. The sassy water is refreshing, no matter how daunting the ingredients are. You can get super creative with the recipes and snacks. I suggest doing the diet with a buddy as well as journaling, as corny as it sounds, EVERYTHING you put in your fat yap! Let me stress one thing: YOU HAVE TO WANT TO LOSE THE WEIGHT! WANTING and WISHING are two different things. I am still working at this, and my goal is to lose 30lbs. I am nearly halfway there. Buy the book if you are ready to be thinner and healthier.

    I LOST 12 POUNDS IN THREE WEEKS!

    I was unhappy with my weight and saw an ad for 'The Flat Belly Diet.' I tried it and have lost 12 pounds. It's all the foods that I like to eat anyway, but the book shows you how to put them together into 400- calorie meals. It gives you exercise options, too, and a food journal. I'm giving copies to some of my friends for gifts.

    Belly fat, meet your match!

    For years, I have been looking to rid myself of all this belly fat. It's just hard. So, when I came across this book, I had to have it. Of course, it's not that revolutionary--eat more grains, etc.--but it does have good points to make and it makes them well. You have to take control of your situation and get it under control. So, therefore, if you are looking for a quick fix, this prob. isn't it. However, if you want to invest time and effort, this can work.

    Great for Menus

    Another way to lose weight. Written simple and effective. My friends and I having success with this book and Weight Training Workouts and diet plan by James Orvis. I think if people added weight training(the right way) to their fitness and weight loss goals they would be amazed. My 4 girlfriends and I have lost 9-18lbs each since starting. We are believers and loving it!!

    Not For Men!

    There is some good information in this book, but please know that it is definitely targeted at women. What particularly disappointed me is that the calorie counts in the book - for the 4-day Flush plus the 28-day diet itself - are calcuated for women. The book states that men can find their equivalent calorie counts on the website, flatbellydiet.com. I went to the website but the information wasn't there. When I emailed the company for help, I was told that they didn't have the male calorie count information, and they recommended I buy a different book. Not cool!

    Not your typical diet

    The Flat Belly Diet isn't your typical weight loss program. Since it targets the excess fat that lingers around your waist, it doesn't go after it how you might expect. From MUFAs at dinner to changing your attitude, the book shows you how to use workouts and diet to trim your waistline over a 32 day period.<BR/><BR/>Another book I enjoyed this week that a friend recommended to help me with emotional eating is The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book.

    Another great "tool" for the fitness/diet toolbox!

    I try to gain at least some benefit from any fitness book that I pick up. This book definitely provides some great nuggets of information and direction, for basically anyone with any level of fitness/diet expertise. A beginner will learn alot, while an expert can still use this book to think of things in different ways and reinforce other theories and thoughts. Definitely worthwhile.

    Don't waste your money.

    Just another diet book with a few nuances trying to make you believe there is a magic formula. If you eat a healthy diet going into the FlatBelly diet, then you do not see the miraculous results claimed by the models in the book. A word of advice - do not go to the website. Even if you do not register, you receive annoying e-mail messages soliciting you to buy additional products. The authors are using "diet expertise" to further sell other products.

    Too strict

    I couldn't stay on this for 2 days. If you want to spend your time shopping and doing lots of kitchen work this is for you. Way too complicated

    Just another Diet book.

    My sister wanted this book so I bought it for her! She is Obsese!

    Yes, it does inform you about making good choices. IF you been hiding in a Cave! It's mostly about "COMMON SENSE"... It shouldn't take a book to tell you what is good for you and what has lots of Calories! By now we all should know what is bad for you or will make you FAT or gain weight if you eat too much! DUH! It's a no brainer.

    Somebody is just making money off ALL THESE MILLION DIET BOOKS! There are also too many fast foods places on every corner! We have become a lazy society. That's all in comes down too.

    Great book for beginners at eating/dieting healthy!

    Unlike a lot of other diet/health books, this was one was an easy read and simple to understand. It is full of basic things you need to know to stay healthy. It's information you can use for the rest of your life. Along the way you'll find boxes to the side with interesting facts... a lot of them are motivating! That's what the entire book seem to be, full of educational health facts you need to know and that is also motivating!

    There are lot of recipes in here and very easy to follow! I'm not a cook and I found the recipes easy to follow. The ingredients are not expensive either.

    There is a 4-day anti bloat plan, it's a great way to start your healthy kick and it's something you can do more than once. After holidays, during/before your menstrual cycles, wanting to shed a 2-3 pounds quickly, etc.

    LIFECHANGING

    I was looking for a diet that would make me feel better - I was have a lot of pain in my joints, which I thought was due to inflamation and water retention. I also wanted to improve my health and lower my blood pressure. I love the fact that it is all about eating whole / organic foods. I am also a firm believer that all the preservatives in our foods are having a negative effect on our bodies. They may interact with our hormones and have an effect on our fat cells. As a woman in menapause I did not want to just accept that because I was older I would get plump because of my hormones etc. I have been on the diet for 6 weeks now and have lost a total of 10 lbs and 6 inches. I feel like I have a new lease on life. It is not so much a diet as a change in eating habits forever! I am thoroughly enjoying all the recipies and when I don't have time to cook I find something that I can easily put together and I always include my MUFA!
