Most of us struggle with our weight.  I think the people that just naturally stay slim without proper balance are the minority.  I know for me it’s never easy.  Whenever I get lazy I gain weight… and it goes to my belly.  I am always jealous of the girls who complain about gaining weight and that their butts got bigger.  Be quiet!  Thanks to Kim Kardashian and J-Lo, big butts are IN.  I don’t think a big stomach will ever be considered hot.  Not only that, extra fat in the midsection is actually very dangerous.

In Belly Fat Diet for Dummies you will learn exactly what that belly fat does to impact your health.  Knowledge is helpful with any diet.  If you know what’s happening to your body and the negative effects, it can greatly increase your chances of wanting to succeed.  For example, did you know that visceral fat (the layer of fat deep inside your body that forms around your organs) is the most dangerous fat of all?  The more that you have, the more toxic it is to your body.  Research has shown that visceral fat has been linked to increased risk of heart disease, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and gallstones.  That’s all horrifying and should make anyone want to shrink that midsection stat!  I am a very visual person, and after reading this, I just picture a big fat blob strangling my liver… gross.  Let’s do this!

This book, like all books in the “For Dummies” collection, takes a no-BS approach to the topic.  It’s easy to navigate and there’s no “fluff” to weed through.  Just strictly facts and helpful tools.  Along with all the facts that should scare your tummy slim, you will also find exercises specifically designed for slimming your midsection, yummy recipes to fight belly-bloating, and a quick start program for those of us who love instant gratification!

I could really go on and on about this book, but I will just share a delicious recipe with you instead.  Don’t think that the recipes for the belly fat diet are boring… you can find this one and many more in the book.
