I bought the FBD book about 3 weeks ago. I haven't really got into it yet, but I will. To much going on here right now. Hopefully things will settle down for me, so I can get back on track.

DIDMIS,
It would recommend that you read all the older posts on this team. It will take a while, but most or all of your questions should be answered about the MUFA diet. I didn't have the book, when I joined this team. So, I read every post on here, then I started doing the diet, before I bought the book. The Flat Belly Diet Book, can be bought a Walmart or Amazon.

"I lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth."
Psalm 121: 1-2 (NIV)

The flat belly diet is actually a book put out by prevention magazine. It is relatively new- actually copyrighted in 2008 and its fabulous! It is a 32 day program which basically gets you jumpstarted and teaches healthy habits and portions. In addition to that, it also emphasizes the fat burning power of heart healthy mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) The first four days is a more strict menu that intends to get rid of bloating and water wait- I am finishing day 4 and have lost 6 pounds!!! It is just water, but dang it feels good! The next 28 days, I will eat 4 meals, every 4 hours at 400 calories each. The book is a wonderful resource of meal plans, what to do if you eat out, frozen dinner options and recipes for those who like to cook. It is fabulous and I am totally stoked! My co-workers told me about it after they also had success. I am not hungry and it has been very easy to stick to. The first day was tough, but when I got used to it, it was not so bad. Buy the book if you can- check amazon.com, it's cheaper than the store. Also, they have a website: www.flatbellydiet.com I am so excited that I have found something that will fit with my busy and demanding lifestyle! I think this is actually going to work for me!

I joined the team because I want a flat belly but don't have the slightest idea about what is about. Can someone please clue me in, maybe the leader of the group. What do you do? What is MUFA? So far I haven't seen anything that has helped me answer those questions or get a flat belly.

Years ago, I was a Prevention subscriber, hadn't thought about them in a while; maybe I'll subscribe again. There are tons of wonderful FBD recipes on their site. I love when people share :)

Thanks!

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

My February issue of Prevention arrived in the mail on yesterday. There are several excellent articles for the "Flat Belly Dieters". I especially like the 1 week of Meals plan that includes MUFA rich foods. After I complete my 4 day jump start, I will use the meal plan outlined. It is said that this menu can help you lose up to 15 pounds in a month! I will settle for 10 emoticon .

I just picked up theFebruary 2009 Prevention. It has a great Flat Belly feature story and the results of a Yale Study about the diet. The reduction in belly fat as evidenced by MRI testing was 33% in 28 days. Basically people lost a greater percentage of fat from their bellys using this approach. Looks like great evidence to me.
