The Flat Belly Diet | Get Skinny on MUFAs!

If you've tried everything to get rid of excess belly fat and gain that slim figure but still can't seem to see great results, then perhaps you should look at a different approach. This approach is called the Flat Belly Diet.

What is the Flat Belly Diet?
It was created for people just like you, who have tried anything and everything to be slim and trim, yet find that belly fat just won't go away. This solution is scientifically based and combines cutting-edge nutrition plan and expert tips. The idea is based on current research about healthy fats known as Monounsaturated Fatty Acids or MUFAs, which are known to target belly fats in particular. Such foods should be eaten at every meal in order to maximize their effect.

Why get rid of Belly Fat?
Aside from the slim and trim figure, belly fat is dangerous. It has significantly high correlation with heart disease.

Okay, I'm convinced. Now tell me more about MUFAs
Monounsaturated Fatty Acids are "good fat" that are healthy for the heart. MUFAs also help in fighting diseases. MUFAs are unsaturated fat. MUFAs are known to combat inflammation and boost good HDL cholesterol.

I'm gonna eat fat, so I won't get fat?
In a manner of speaking yes. But MUFAs, which are unsaturated fat, have opposite effect from all those evil fat you've heard about--saturated and trans fat. Yep! MUFAs are good fat!

So what do I eat?
MUFAs can be found in almonds, peanut butter, olive oil, avocado, and even in dark chocolate. Chocolate? Yes! But bear in mind that MUFAs are found specifically in dark chocolate. Dark chocolate contains stearic acid, which is later converted into oleic acid, which is a MUFA!

How much dark chocolate?
About a quarter of a cup, or 1.5 ounces of dark chocolate. Eating this amount has been shown to relax blood vessels and reduce blood pressure.

I want to know more!
