A New Diet For a Flat Belly?

See me raising my hand? Me, me, me ...I want to know about this latest flat belly diet! I mean, I love love love my kids but not so much the leftover pregnancy belly I now carry around with me everywhere.

But there has been some buzz going on about Prevention's new Flat Belly Diet...so you know I'm going to check it out. And I did! Have you read about it yet? If you haven't, you may want to.

Now, first of all I have to say it sounds pretty easy, which always worries me. But it also makes sense, which makes me very happy. I just don't know if anything short of surgery can give me a flat or even semi-flat belly again. Hmm. But let me share what I read in a nutshell, and you can decide if you want to check out this latest diet more.

At the heart of the Flat Belly Diet are five foods that are packed with MUFA's, or the "Good for you Fats." Apparently these monounsaturated fatty acids ( MUFA's ) not only protect you from chronic disease but according to new research, can help you lose fat, specifically around your middle.

So what are the top five categories of MUFA foods? Avocado, Oils, Nuts and Seeds, Olives and Chocolate are the keys to losing belly fat. Sound good so far? Eating one serving of any of these foods at every meal will help reduce your accumulation of dangerous belly fat; control your calorie intake and you'll lose inches and pounds, too--especially around your waistline, according to Prevention's Flat Belly Diet. And there are recipes to help you with getting these foods into your daily diet.
