Subcutaneous fat (under the skin) around the belly has been proven to be a major health risk, particularly to the cardiovascular system. So that pesky spare tire is not just something we wish away so we can feel comfortable in a bikini, now it's a real health concern. As mentioned in the blog, heart disease, obesity, type II diabetes, and other risks have been associated with excess belly fat. I like the sound of the diet outlined because you are allowed to eat, and it encourages balance. Not all grains or fats are kicked out, which is of great importance because the good ones can aid in proper digestion and promote healthy weight. Just one thing that comes to mind: a healthy, balanced diet is imperative to attaining ideal weight, but ultimately cardio workout is what burns the region down to that six pack. The name of the diet is surely enticing, but physical activity should always be part of the flat belly equation.
I agree as well. Diet without exercise just isn't the same, especially when you're trying to make a difference in a spare tire. I know that I lost a lot of weight changing my eating habits but without Muay Thai, yoga, and walking, I wouldn't have made the physical changes I did. However, it's nice to know there's a diet that might help me with my big ole belly!
