Flat Belly Diet

Despite depriving yourself of food, you find it hard to shun that extra fat around your waist? Not any longer, as you can have a flat belly in just a few days. This is a promise by makers of Flat belly diet, Liz Vaccariello and Cynthia Sass. They claim that if you follow Flat Belly Diet for 32 days you can easily reduce up to 15 pounds from your total body weight.

It is basically a Mediterranean style diet, that calls for eating mono saturated fats or MUFA instead of saturated fat components to dip the fat with in a few weeks. Besides this, the Flat belly diet plan also works on the second type of fat, which is more difficult to loose and is unsafe and dangerous for the body.

How does it work?
The plan advocates intake of 1600 calories everyday which should be distributed in 4 separate meals in the interval of 4 hours. One can include foods from 28 chosen food stuffs, mainly unrefined foods, in their breakfast, lunch, snack meal or dinner.

A brief list of foods is given below:

Oils- Olive oil, peanut oil, sesame oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil, walnut oil.
Nuts and seeds-  Walnuts, almonds, peanut butter, dry-roasted cashews, peanuts, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts,  pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, pistachios, peanut butter, sunflower seeds,  butter, sesame.
Dark chocolate
Fruits (seasonal)
Vegetables ( seasonal)
Whole grains
Lean protien
Red meat (little of it) 

But following a 1600 calorie plan, a dieter needs to follow 1200 to 1400-calorie anti-bloat jump-start period for four days. This is meant to make the dieter ready for the flat belly diet in the future. It reduces bloating as dieters drink 2 liters sassy water daily which includes spices, herbs, citrus, and cucumber to prepare the body for dieting. This liquid would flush out the toxins out of the body and thereby support 5 ¾ inch loss and 7 lbs weight loss in the first week itself. Loosing substantial weight in the first week itself is a great motivating factor.

Thereon the person follows the 1600 calories plan. Also, exercising is optional. Thus it is a very easy to follow diet plan. The best part about this diet is that you never feel hungry as you eat foods which keep you full. Thus you can stick to diet and get assured results.

You don't have to keep a strict watch on your calories intake, just mix and match MUFA components in your diet. So it does not affect your taste buds too. So, all in all, the flat belly diet plan encourages healthy eating habits for life time. It is recommended for healthy weight loss.
