I wanted to start this post by saying thanks to all of you that wished me a happy 1st year!
Now, I've been thinking about a comment that a reader left the other day, asking about me about the Flat Belly Diet that I mentioned in a comment on her blog and I decided to do a post on it.
I'm not one to "diet". I like to think of any programs that I go on are just a way for me to eat more healthy. I don't need a major weight loss- I would like to loose about ten pounds or so- my family would say I was nuts to think I'm even fat at all. I basically don't like what my tummy has become and I just would like to get back into my tiny clothes that I used to wear before my last little one was born. The only thing with me is, that I HATE to have to count calories, do sit-ups, or live on rabbit food. I have to like what I'm eating or I'm going to cheat! That's where this diet is awesome. It's real food that even includes smoothies and you don't have to exercise if you don't want to!
I had the Flat Belly Diet book for some time now and kept saying that I was going to try it out. I even half started it at one time but wasn't very serious about it. So when summer was approaching, I decided to be serious and try it out. I got out my book and blew off the dust and started reading it. You see, this diet relies on the MUFA foods to help you loose weight. What are MUFAS? Well, it's short for monounsaturated fat and there are five different kinds:
2. Nuts & Seeds
5. Chocolate- YES! CHOCOLATE!
I can handle all of them except the avocados and tend to use the chocolate MUFS source alot. The trick is to keep your meals at 400 calories. You are thinking, Isn't that counting? Yes, but you don't have to do the counting. Just go by their menus and they have alot of choices.
Ok, so I've been doing this for two weeks or so now and I've lost 2 inches around my tummy! I do some exercising because they say that though you don't HAVE to exercise, it will speed up things. I still don't do sit-ups. No person alive will make me do sit-ups. I follow my girl, Denise Austin's morning workouts on cable. But, I don't do the sit-ups.
Will I show photos? No. I'm too shy but you have to trust me, this works. I'm not even getting paid to tell you about this. Nope. This is not a paid review. I even will let you in on a little secret-
I go off the meals on Sundays and go out to eat and eat what I want. One thing is though, this last Sunday I had a chicken burrito from Taco Bell and I was in the bathroom shortly after. I think my body is getting so used to all the healthy food that it rejected crap-Oops, no pun intended!
So, do I have you wanting to do this diet? I do? Cool! Now, how would you like a book for free?
