Belly FatI found this book to be quite enlightening, especially as it pertained to my current diet.  One chapter explains all about your BMI along with your waist to hip ratio and how those numbers could determine your risk for heart disease and diabetes.  I always knew my BMI was good, but I was shocked to discover that I was in the moderate risk area due to my waist to hip ratio.

I also learned that your body could suffer from chronic inflammation due to a poor diet lacking in fruits and vegetables.  This state of chronic inflammation could lead to your body actually turning on itself, resulting in autoimmune diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus.  I was recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, Hashimoto's disease, so this information hit very close to home.

The good news is that the Belly Fat Diet for Dummies book provides a comprehensive approach to shedding unwanted belly fat and improving your overall health.  I'm a picky eater, but I have to say that the recipes included looked delicious and I was surprised to find plenty that I would actually enjoy eating.  Just look at this example, which I currently have chilling in the freezer:

Crunchy Peanut Butter Banana Bites

Crunchy Peanut Butter Banana BitesIngredients:

  • 1 cup 100% whole grain oats
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 3 tablespoons natural peanut butter


  • 1.  Place the oats in a resealable plastic bag and zip closed.  Using a rolling pin, roll over the bag of oats until the oats are small crumbs.
  • 2.  Slice each banana into small, quarter-sized pieces about 1/2 inch thick.  Smear a small coating of peanut butter onto each side of the banana pieces.
  • 3.  Add the peanut butter-coated banana pieces to the plastic bag and then shake until each piece is coated with the oat crumbs.
  • 4.  Place the coated banana pieces on a plate covered with wax paper.  Freeze for 1 hour.

Don't wait until the New Year to start shaping up and slimming down.  By following the quick and easy suggestions, exercises and healthy recipes in the Belly Fat Diet for Dummies book, you can improve your health and your appearance and keep it that way!
