Flat Belly Diet! Pocket Guide: Featuring Your ULTIMATE 28-Day Eating Plan for Lasting Weight Loss by Liz Vaccariello
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Maybe I should wait until I complete the program before I rate this book? Nah.
I read some of the other reviews, and I find it interesting to think we all read the same book. The opinions vary greatly - - but overall, I think this is a great book.
1. It was recommended to me.
2. It was easy and quick to read.
3. It was motivating.
4. I've finished day two of the jumpstart program, and I'm doing well on the program.
I've only felt hungry once or twice, and it didn't last long, because the meals are spaced four hours apart. It's been a challenge to give up the butter and the salt shaker - - but I'm discovering the flavors of the different seasonings available.
And, the most exciting part of this program? My family is doing it with me! What could possibly entice my family to eat the food (measured and weighed) from a diet program?
Well ... the concept and the foods are very appealing. There is way more meat (chicken, fish, turkey, tuna, etc.) in the program than what we normally eat. And, the diet is based on the concept of eating Monounsaturated Fatty Acids. What are those? Well, they just happen to be some of my family's favorite foods: olives, avocados, nuts, seeds, and dark chocolate - - yes! DARK CHOCOLATE!
So, my goal is to stick with it for the entire 28 day program (after the 4 day jump start). There are weekly menus and weekly grocery lists for the 28 days, and that makes it so much easier.
