Forget expensive personal trainers and fancy diet food. If you want a realistic way to shed pounds in 2010, The Doctors and Prevention’s Editor-in-Chief, Liz Vaccariello share their favorite 52 tips for losing weight – one tip for each week of the year.
The Flat Belly Diet is centered around fat, but not just the kind around your waistline. It’s a book and eating philosophy put together by Liz Vaccariello and nutritionist Cynthia Sass of Prevention magazine. The plan centers around MUFAs (Monounsaturated Fatty Acids). Monounsaturated fat is liquid at room temperature, but may solidify in your refrigerator. They help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood and lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.
There is no shortage of eating with the Flat Belly Diet, as you are recommended to have four 400 calorie meals, all with a MUFA source. So what foods are rich in monounsaturated fatty acid? Foods high in MUFA include nuts, avocados, dark chocolate, sunflower oil, canola oil and Rachael Ray’s favorite- olive oil.
