The Flat Belly Diet Cookbook is a collection of recipes to use with the Flat Belly Diet. There are two versions of the Flat Belly Diet – one for men and one for women. The recipes can be used by both diet plans. There are 200 recipes included in the book and all fall within the 400-calorie guideline outlined in the Flat Belly Diet Book. This means the recipes will all be less than 400 calories per serving, with some of the calories coming from monounsaturated, or healthy, fats. The Flat Belly Diet was created by Prevention Magazine. Dieters can expect recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and healthy snacks.

Product Features

The Flat Belly Diet Cookbook is designed for dieters following the Flat Belly Diet. There is no need to read the original diet book, but dieters will gain an understanding of why certain ingredients are used if they understand the diet. Every recipe in the book contains fewer than 400 calories, so there is no need to count calories as long as the exact ingredients are used to cook the dish. If substitutions are made, the nutritional totals may change so there could be more or less calories per serving.

The Flat Belly Diet aims to reduce overall weight with a focus on abdominal weight. There is no weight loss or diet plan for spot reducing, so this claim is completely false. Weight loss happens differently in every person, but one thing is always the same – the body will pull energy from fat stores and fat stores are located on various parts of the body, not just the abdominals.

The recipes include vibrant pictures and detailed instructions. Some of the most popular include peanut butter spirals and super-rich chocolate cake. Recipes for crab coup, Caribbean chicken salad and turkey meatloaf are also included.

The Flat Belly Diet Cookbook sells for $17 from Amazon.com. The main complaint from readers is the fact that many of the recipes and ingredients are expensive and hard to find. One reviewer stated only a handful of the recipes are ideal for the bargain shopper with a limited food budget.
