sassy_water_flat_belly_diet Seems like this flat belly diet comes around every once in a while and many people start talking about it. I’m guessing some talk show was pushing the benefits of the Flat Belly Diet sometime today as many people are talking about it again.

Actually I think the Flat Belly diet may be one of the better diets out there as it consists mainly of eating foods referred to as MUFU which consists of a lot of nuts and similar foods. The flat belly diet has quite a few books out that describe various sections of the Flat Belly Diet program. These include not only the Flat Belly Diet book, but there is a Flat Belly Diet cookbook and several other titles.

The Flat Belly diet book is described as:

Product Description

Prevention magazine is the country’s most authoritative, trustworthy, and innovative source for practical health, nutrition, and fitness information. Now, its editors bring you a weight-loss plan that’s specifically designed to target your number-one trouble spot: BELLY FAT.     For women over 40, belly fat is incredibly stealth and incredibly stubborn. It’s also the most deadly, contributing to a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, and chronic illness than any other type of fat on your body. Finally, science has helped uncover a key dietary weapon in the fight against belly fat. Monounsaturated fatty acids, or MUFAs, help dieters lose more weight–in their bellies specifically–and keep it off longer.     Flat Belly Diet! will lead you step by step, day by day, meal by meal toward a flatter belly…and a longer, healthier life.
