A research study published in the scientific journal Diabetes Care has shown that monounsaturated fat (found in olive oil, nuts, avocados) can help reduce the accumulation of visceral belly fat. The researchers divided subjects into three groups that were put on diets high in saturated fat, high in carbohydrates or high in monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). MUFA has shown promising effect on reducing belly fat and is in the center of the Flat Belly Diet.
The Flat Belly Diet is consists of two parts: 1. Four-Day Anti-Bloat Jumpstart 2. Four-Week Eating Plan

The Flat Belly Diet also includes an optional exercise program. The author claims that the Flat Belly Diet plan works without exercise although it is recommended for overall health. The author suggests that if you don’t workout regularly already, start with the diet first. After you’ve successfully incorporated the diet plan into your lifestyle, then you can change the habit of not exercising regularly.


Fat is an essential composition in our cells and our body. Excess body fat around your abdomen area however is linked with higher health risks for heart disease and diabetes. According to the National Institutes of Health, a waist measurement above 35 inches for women and above 40 inches for men regardless of body weight is a sign of excess visceral fat (fat around organs).
