      I recently ordered the Flat Belly Diet.  It’s a bit pricy but I’ve found it quite helpful.  It stress the importance on Monosaturated fats.  It has a four day anti bloat segments followed by a simple 1600 calorie/day diet.  I didn’t follow the 4 day plan excactly, it says no coffee and well ladies that just isn’t possible for me.  I need my morning cup of joe.
      It has you drinkin “Sassy Water” over the frist 4 days and it seemed to help me with water retention. It’s a combo of water, lemons, cucumbers, ginger and mint. Taste pretty good.
      It also tells women over 40 how to exercise to get maximum benefits.
      I’ve given up on the sacle and I’m happy to say a pair of tight shorts fit better over the weekend. Let’s see if I cont. with adding some things they say and exercising 4-5 days/wk if I finally start seeing results.
      I’m pretty disgusted with myself because 2 1/2 yrs ago I lost 32 lbs. and swore I’d never gain it back.  Now here I am 20 lbs closer to where I swore I’d never go back to.  And, now, it’s harer than 2 yrs. ago to see results.  Help me ladies!

        • Hi I’m new here. I have been struggling to lose 15 lbs since last year. Stuck to a 1600 calorie diet and worked out at the gym with a personal trainer for 5 days a week for 4 months. Lost 5 lbs and gained it back up in the last 2 month. I need to lose the weight and a lot of belly fat. Does this diet help with the belly fat? If so, how much?

        • What is sassie water and where do you get it?

          I decided that it’s okay to feel hungry. I try to eat less and exercise when I can; even if it’s 10 minutes in the morning or lunges at the fax machine, any movement burns calories and tones muscles, so squeeze those butt cheeks while you‘re reading this message.  I use to have this thought that wow I love and live to eat and I would bounce my weight up and down up to 134 down to 114 over and over. I am only 5 feet tall, so I’m not skinny even at 114. My closet has size of the week and i just would rotate.  Now I have given all double digits away, try to remember that I need to eat to live and watch what goes into my mouth everyday. Need cake? Ok two bites and the rest in the trash, wasteful? yeah...jeans tight?  No...    :)

        • I have been trying to manage my wt for years by sticking to a “so many calorie diet” and have finally learned that for me the key is to mix it up.  so today I am eating more, because yesterday I ate less.  I think that we need to constantly trick our bodies into giving up the calories.  Of course it’s still supply and demand.  One pound of fat is 3600 calories so if you burn more than you eat, ok.  Somehow though-there are weeks where I eat like a saint and exercise my buns off (i wish) and lose nothing, actually gain, other weeks i eat M&M’s for lunch and lose. IDK. One exercise guru says weights less cardio, the other says more cardio less weights.  I wish that I could just wake up one morning with the bod of my dreams and an instruction manual on how to keep it there, I would follow it to the T! LOL

        • I don’t know about the flat belly diet, but I do know that with O-so-lean, this is the first time I have seen targeted fat loss in the belly/hip area. I am really excited because I have struggled for YEARS to get that flab off.
          It has a 6 month 100% satisfaction guarantee so you can’t lose anything but the fat! I am using it in conjunction with other Glycolean products I already had. I have been amazed at how quickly I started noticing results where I have been stuck for so long.
          www.mannatechosolean.com explains the patented technology- basically they have separated special peptides in whey protein which targets fat loss, and preserves lean muscle mass.
          Let me know if you want to order some, and I can show you how to get it at a discount.

        • Ellen,
          Were you talking to me? www.mannapages.com/choosehealth is the website I order mine from. It is in a powder form and you can mix it with anything, but I really like it mixed in with the Glycolean shakes. I have tried every protein/meal replacement drink out there (that doesn’t have artificial sweeteners) and the Glycolean shake is the best. As a busy mom, I tend not to eat breakfast unless I have a quick shake. I know how unhealthy it is to not eat, so for me it is the best way to get in my nutrition. With the two scoops of O-so-lean, I only use half the recommended shake amount and it tastes great. And it is SO filling.
          I would include the above link as a hyperlink, but I haven’t figured that out yet. When I try to do it, the whole message turns into a hyperlink. :(

        • Exercise can be very important. They can help speed up your process of losing weight or whatever your aim may be.  I for one have been using these bike shorts from fitandsharp.com that helps take the approximate shape of my waist. I’ve been using it for 4 weeks and have lost 2 inches off my waist or muffin top hahaha

        • I finally made the committment to exercise. I lost 2 more inches in the ‘muffin’ area without the crunches, but if it is going to be gone by the time we go to Cancun, I need to move forward at warp speed. :)

        • The Flat Belly diet comes from prevention magazine. Sassy water has something like lemon, mint leaves, ginger and cucumber, and you like it sit overnight. The diet advocates cutting out certain foods, especially those that will bloat you. The sassy water is supposed to soothe your digestive tract. The diet also calls for monosaturated fats, like olives or avocadoes, at each meal. And I think each meal should only be 400 calories, but you eat more frequently.

          It seemed okay to me, but since it’s not vegetarian, I can’t follow all of the meal plans.

          Dairy is my big trigger food, and I find by eating vegan I lose the most weight and keep it off. But it’s tough to keep up.

        • UPDATE:
          I made it and then tried to drink it. I tried hot and cold, with honey and stevia (not at once) - I just couldn’t drink it. Oh well...
          ___________________________

          I just googled it:

          Sassy Water

          2 liters water
          1 tsp freshly grated ginger
          1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
          1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
          12 small spearmint leaves

          Boil 1 gallon of water. Once water has cooled, add all ingredients let sit over night.

        • For me, like alot of you, I yo-yo all the time.  I will lose it then gain it back, plus more. I’ve been on every diet out there. I’m at the heaviest I’ve ever been and I hate it.  The key is moving.  I have great results with Turbo Jam by Beachbody.  It’s so much fun and after doing it for a few days, you feel a new energy. It’s fun and easy.  There’s one 30 minute dvd called ab jam...and it really works to flatten out your belly fast. Anyone can do it.  I know the key to losing weight is exercise and diet.  You really can’t do one without the other and have good results.

        • The sassy water takes a bit to get used to....  It is full of things that I love - but still I had to gain a taste for it.  I also did it with limes, and I seemed to enjoy that better (although I’m not sure the limes have the same “effect” as the lemons, but I wouldn’t think it would be that much different).  My weight has been a struggle since I was 5 I think!  The flat-belly diet has some great concepts...  my biggest issue is that I use food for comfort (and have been doing that a lot lately - especially since retail therapy is difficult when you are unemployed!) and I hate to exercise alone...  Oh my - the struggles and drama I have in my life at the moment... LOL!!

        • A great book (and cheap at Amazon) is “What to Say When You Talk To Yourself” by Shad Helmstetter. It will definitely help with emotional eating. I also recite to myself, “Nothing Tastes as Good As Thin Feels.”
