Flat Belly Diet

Have you heard of the latest buzz? There's a popular Flat Belly Diet claiming that you can lose up to 15 pounds in 32 days without the need for exercise. It made me very curious so I checked what this Flat Belly Diet is all about. I learned that it is a science-based solution which makes use of a carefully researched and tested nutrition plan. It also incorporates the best expert tips and advice.

This amazing diet was developed by the editor of Prevention Magazine. This diet revolves around the concept of eating healthy fats (Monounsaturated Fatty Acids or MUFAs) during every meal. A person on this diet loses weight because it specifically targets belly fat.

You might be curious to find out more about MUFAs. The Flat Belly Diet points out that there is a type of heart-healthy, disease-fighting, "good" fat found in foods. The 5 classification of delicious MUFAs are Dark Chocolate, Oils, Olives, Avocados, Nuts and Seeds as seen on the diagram below. Some examples of MUFAs are almonds, peanut butter, olive oil, avocado, and chocolate. I love chocolates and I find it amazing how this diet does not put chocolates on the "must not have list". According to the Flat Belly Diet, it is alright to eat chocolates as long as its dark choclates.
