The Flat Belly Diet

There is another new diet everyone is talking about. This one is "The Flat Belly Diet" from the editors of Prevention Magazine.  The new diet consists of healthy eating with a dose of chocolate early in the day and a little monounsaturated fatty acid at every meal.

Some critics argue that it just isn't realistic to plan on losing pounds in a certain spot.  Lisa Richardson, a registered dietitian, says, "What concerns me is the claim that when you lose weight that it will be specific to the abdominal area. I'm a little nervous about making that claim because I think a person's genetics, their hormone profile, sometimes their stress and sleep patterns can be determining their belly fat." Richardson adds that the diet is so strict; you might as well stay at home because it's almost impossible to dine out on this plan.
