Flat Belly Diet

This is the diet that I am trying. It sounds pretty legit. I mean really, I don’t need to loose a lot of weight except for in my midsection. Every else, I think that I look great. There is a 4 day bloat startup. It cuts out all caffeine, salts, processed foods, and carbs.  It shouldn’t be too hard. I don’t like fish, so I plan to eat turkey cutlets and chicken.

The diet itself focuses on MUFA’s. It means Monounsaturated fatty acids found in plant derived goods. You know like, oils, nuts and seeds, avocadoes, chocolate {YES! chocolate!} and olives. These are the examples from the book.

  • Flax oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Olive oil
  • Canola oil
  • Green olives
  • Almond butter
  • Peanut butter
  • Chocolate chips
  • Avocadoes
  • Seeds
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Dark chocolate
  • Peanuts
  • Soybeans
  • Tahini
  • Pesto sauce

By eating these, you help:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower risk of Parkinson's disease
  • Reduction in internal inflammation

michaels_guruEasy enough right?! Well in case you didn’t think that I wasn’t crazy… I’m also topping it off with Ms. Jillian Michael. That’s right, the bitch is coming off the shelf and I’m going to try again. Lord, help me!

Right now, I weigh 140lbs! Shut up! I haven’t weighed that much since I was 7 months pregnant with Olivia. {ha! I was tiny when I got pregnant. a whopping 110lbs.}

My goal, is to be 120-125lbs.

Oh Jillian Micaels. Good luck! I've been doing her 30 Day Shred and she's MEAN!

Good for you! Let me know how it goes and how you like it. I honestly have NO time to diet these days...Being a missionary people want to take you out ALL the time- and there is nothing (well, almost nothing) healthy about eating out in Peru! GAH!

Oh well....

Good luck! I know you can do it!!

Wow, Ash! We weigh the same and have the same goal!!

Now I just have to get on the ball and start doing something about it! My belly and thighs are my "trouble" spots.

When it gets warmer and we have outdoor baseball practice, I think I will be walking instead of sitting, but I really need to dust off the Wii Fit. Again.

Let me know how the diet works for you!!

<3 you!
