I have a guest coming to the B&B who is doing the flat belly diet... so I have the book and am "trying" the quickstart today. A few things I need in the house. I have had a guest/friend who recommended the flat belly diet and mufas a few years back and certainly I read a lot of support for eating lots of mufas with the diabetes food plan (mono unsaturated fatty acids found in nuts, seeds, dark chocolate, avocados, olives, salmon). This seems not too much different than the diabetic food plan. I am not measuring, just seeing how the foods are combined. Mostly it seems to be making sure there are mufas at every meal. It made me wonder if this was a fad or if there are people out there who had success using it... or who still use it? I may start a thread on a post to get a bigger response.
A couple of conflicts aleady for how I am eating. The quick start recommends cooked veggies and I am eating a lot of raw... plus I am trying for a rainbow of foods so I will be going off target. I realize the premise then will be compromised. How can I get a flat belly if I eat raw broccoli? LOL. Ah.... My own goals are more important than the flat belly rules goals. However it helps me if I am in the right mindset. Plus many of the ideas are good. Eating four meals a day... more mufas... less salt. There is also a lot of journaling recommended to deal with the mindset. I DO need that. Food and I continue to have an unhealthy relationship at times.
