Have you heard about the amazing Flat Belly Diet yet? If not you really need to check it out. Go right now to Amazon and order it. Yeah I know it has a funny name and may even sound like just another in a long line of fads, but believe me it is NOT!
In fact this web site you are on right now found its beginnings largely due to the philosophy of this book. You see last spring I got a post card in the mail offering a free look Okinawa Flat belly tonic at it. When it arrived I quickly scanned it and while I liked the idea, put it aside and ignored it for awhile.
Then one day I picked it up and thought to myself, “what could 4 days hurt”? The book calls the first 4 days the “anti-bloat” diet. You follow a very precise program for those 4 days and you will see a significant change in your belly. After that I actually got to add more food.
It consisted of real foods normally found in most refrigerators, not some strange hard-to-find items. You must eat 4 times a day, evenly spaced and each time you include what Prevention Magazine coined “muffa”. (Short for monounsaturated fats) The first thing I noticed was that even though I was eating much smaller portions than I was used to, I never felt hungry. At the end of the 4 days I not only lost about 6 pounds but I actually did have a flatter belly.
That was 5 months ago; I’m down 28 pounds and went from a size 10-12 pants to size 4-6. I feel great, my energy levels roar, my skin is healthier even my stress levels are much lower.
Need a better story? My daughter started one week after me and she has lost 66 pounds and still losing on average 2 pounds per week. Now we are talking about a young woman here who is (or was) one picky eater. She ate lots of all the wrong kinds of food and wouldn’t eat anything that looked healthy. In fact she used to ask me if I had anything in the house that wasn’t healthy. Her self esteem was in the negative range. She had a bad back having undergone multiple surgeries, could hardly walk through the grocery story without being exhausted. Now she either walks 4%2B miles or bike rides 8%2B miles 5 days per week
