    I really like this diet. I’ve done all the fad diets over the years. This, by far, has been the most healthy and filling. Once I’ve reached my target weight, this will definitely be a life style. So far, in 6 weeks, I’ve lost 11 pounds.

    The first 4 days of the diet (the jumpstart, 1,200 calories a day) are difficult, but doable. After that, the book recommends 1,600 calories a day: Three 400-calorie meals and one 400-calorie snack.

    I appreciate that the ‘recipes’ are easy to follow and easy to make. I also like that calorie counts are listed for each ingredient and that each meal is planned for 1 person. Once I had my pantry and refrigerator stocked, the rest was easy. I really like the food they recommend.

    To accelerate weight loss, I average about 1,300 calories a day. I consume three 400-calorie meals, and leave the snack optional. I also divide up my meals. I’ll have 1/2 breakfast at 8:00 am and the other 1/2 at 10:30 am. I then eat 1/2 lunch at 12:30 pm, and the other 1/2 at 3:30 pm. It helps keep me satisfied. At 6:00 pm, I have the full dinner. If I’m still hungry, I’ll have 1/2 the snack at 8:00 pm (sometimes the full snack).

    I have all 3 of the Flat Belly Books, (Diet, Cookbook, and Pocket Guide). If you were to buy just one book, I’d recommend the Pocket Guide. It is easy to follow and the meal plans are very tasty.
