The Flat Belly Diet: Just More MUFA

Submitted by Adriana Rae on January 2, 2008 - 14:15.

The Flat Belly Diet is getting a lot of attention today. It was featured on Good Morning America this morning. The diet is being promoted by Prevention magazine, who's Editor in Chief helped to write it.

The key point about the Flat Belly Diet is that we should eat many more of the good fats, or MUFA. MUFA's are the magical component that will melt our belly fat. MUFA stands for mono unsaturated fatty acid - the really good fat found in foods like most nuts and seeds, olive oil and avocados. If we eat a bit of MUFA at every meal we will feel more satiated and less likely to reach for other foods because we won't feel hungry.

Mary Anne Speeshok was on the TV show today extolling the benefits of the diet. She herself had lost 46 pounds thanks to the diet and looked fabulous. She has gone from a size 16 to a size 8. But note that she also adhered to a brisk walking program six days a week. Maybe this is even more important for achieving a flat belly?
