Here’s the best part — you don’t feel like you are on a diet. You get to eat a wide variety of foods and can eat enough throughout the day to not feel hungry. You can have yummy snacks like chocolate pudding with bananas and graham crackers as well as eating real food like grilled mushroom and roasted pepper burgers.
The theory behind the diet is that a moderate fat diet is better for losing weight then a low fat diet. The weight not only comes off easier it also stays off better. The trick is to eat foods that have “good” fats, also known as “mono unsaturated fatty acids” (or MUFA — pronounced like “MOO-fa”).
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 fat.
A key feature of the Flat Belly diet is its focus on health and energy. Who wouldn’t lose weight on one of those 1200 calorie a day diets? But who is going to stick with it? Featuring healthy, wholesome foods and a 1,600-calorie-a-day guideline, the Flat Belly Diet is as healthy as they come.
