    The book begins with a lecture about different types of fat. The authors of the book explain the difference between two types of primary body fat: subcutaneous and visceral. Not only the visceral fat is very difficult to get rid of, but according to the authors it is also far more dangerous to your health.

    So far I was very impressed with the book. It seemed to be well based on scientific research. Then the authors introduce the concept of MUFA, the mono-unsaturated fatty acid. According to recent research MUFA diet is the only diet that reduces belly fat. And this is where the fun begins. The authors practically limited themselves to focusing exclusively on MUFA diet. In effect this diet is very difficult to follow, especially because of the many ingredients that are often to be found only in specially shops.

    In addition, as much as I trust the scientific research I do not support the idea of another restrictive diet. It might well reduce your belly fat at some point (the book cites a number of stories of people who have lost inches off their waistline using this program), but because of being a restrictive diet it is bound to fail sooner or later. Therefore I suggest reading books that are not so much about dieting as about accepting a healthy lifestyle. One of such books with a much more comprehensive approach to nutrition, health and longevity is “Live 150 Years”. You will find there not only proven tips for losing weight but also great advice on general nutrition and proper food combination, as well as most common habits that lead people to obesity, all kind of gimmick dieting programs being just one of them…

    This diet works for me. In any successful weight loss program you must be able to incorporate it into your life style and enjoy the foods that are recommended. Changing habits and adjusting your life style is not easy and requires a commitment to a program you can adhere to. The four small meals and whole grains, nuts and seeds seem to be the best diet for my tastes. I also love avocado and dark chocolate.

    I am 57 years old and as many others my age can attest to, I have had the pounds creep on year after year. I have tried Weight Watchers, South Beach and many others and had some success but always ultimately quit.

    Constant hunger was my struggle while on Weight Watchers and when I fell off that wagon I would hit the ground hard with more cravings than ever. South Beach is healthy, but as soon as I added even a few extra carbs I would quit loosing and seemed to have a lot of nagging headaches.

    I almost didn’t buy the Flat Belly Diet book thinking it would be one more diet book on my shelf, but I am glad I did buy it!

    I was a little hungry and bored the first two days! Now I am never hungry if I stay with the program. I travel and the suggestions on little snack packs are great! Little things that I can carry in my purse really help. (The whole wheat english muffin and peanut butter is my favorite!) I love the abundance of whole grain foods. They really fill me up and keep me from getting hungry. As the weight slowly comes off, I am exercising more and enjoying it.

    At first it didn’t seem like I was loosing much weight nor did the tape measure prove that I was loosing many inches, but my family and friends kept commenting on my weight loss and actually thought that I had lost more weight than I actually had! Maybe it is because it does seem to be coming off my mid-section. (Could be the middle age thing for me.)

    I would suggest joining the on-line Flat Belly Prevention site if you plan to stay with it. The site helps me to log my meals, makes suggestions for menus and you can create shopping lists.

    I too am frustrated with those who shoot this diet down and have not tried it. I am glad that their diet and life style works for them, but this one works for me. Good luck to anyone struggling to control their weight, I feel your pain!

    5.5 lbs in 4 days of the jump start…and another 1.5 lbs by day 6 for a total of 7 lbs in six days!!! Everything is as promised: I lost bloat and weight immediately, and my clothes are now almost a size too big. The program is easy to follow & I’ve never felt hungry! This even though I was prepared to feel deprived during the jump start. I didn’t! My energy level is great, the water is something I now have to have daily, and the recipes are really good. It is an absolute pleasure to plan my day’s eating…rather than dreading it. All of the things so limited on “diets”—chocolate, nuts, avacados, etc., are not just OK, they are a must. Most significantly, this immediately struck me not as a “diet”, but as a way of life going forward. Thanks, Prevention!

    Before you buy this book, and it is widely advertised on TV shows such as the Doctors and the Today Show, ask yourself: Can I realisticly give up coffee or tea (hot or iced) or a diet soda or a beer or wine forever; can I go without sugar or a glass of milk or most fresh vegetables or fruit. Why would you ever do that. I did get immediate results from the cleansing 4 day diet at 2 pounds. The sassy water tastes great, but the diet was so limited by the end of 2 weeks I was gagging on the food. The other thing is most people won’t take weight off at 1600 calories a day. First on your own try eating a full cup of cooked carrots or try egg whites with no egg yolk or even eat a whole pint of grape tomatoes at one sitting nearly every day. To be fair, I am a cook and a good one so this was disappointing. There were a couple of ideas that tasted great, like the ham sandwich with pesto, but most had no taste. Also the products recommended don’t exist at any of my local stores. I have done weight watchers in the past and I am going back there, forget this one because it is unrealistic to maintain.

    If you are totally serious about getting that flat belly and want to expend the effort, this book will work wonders on that problem area. It is filled with good, useful tips that I’ve overlooked in the past. I know that this area is a problem for most of us, that’s why I decided to get this book and just see if I could do it–with not so many sit-ups or crunches! A must read if you want to rid yourself of that belly fat. I also liked and would suggest Goodbye, Fatty! Hello, Skinny! How I Lost Weight And Still Ate The Foods I Loved-Without Dieting as it helped me to get inspired to start the weight loss.
