If all you did was Step 1 then you’ll definitely lose belly fat along with any other fat on your body, you’ll have a flat stomach and I guarantee you that your midsection will look better than someone who ONLY does 1000 crunches everyday.
Don’t expect even weight loss. You are going to lose more inches on your belly in the first 2 weeks than subsequent weeks if you stay dedicated to a weight loss routine. If you are at least 15 lbs. (6.8 kg) over your ideal weight, you should see significant results in the first 2 weeks and belly reduction may be harder afterward. 
If you want to lose fat as quickly as possible without sacrificing your health or sanity, lift weights 4 to 5 times per week for 45 to 60 minutes per session, and do 3 to 4 20 to 25-minute HIIT cardio workouts.
So cook up some oatmeal—and top it with some fruit. What’s so magical about this combination? Each provides insoluble fiber that helps reduce blood cholesterol and feeds the healthy bacteria in your gut. By doing so, you trigger your gut to produce butyrate, a fatty acid that reduces fat-causing inflammation throughout your body. In a Canadian study, researchers discovered that those whose diets were supplemented with insoluble fiber had higher levels of ghrelin—a hormone that controls hunger. (Try these two-minute oatmeal recipes that’ll make you an oatmeal fan forever.)
Weight loss is a mathematical equation: you simply need to take in fewer calories (of whatever you prefer to eat) than you use each day. So, yes, you could still lose weight. That said, you won’t be a healthy “thin” if you don’t nourish your body with good, whole foods, including plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Plus, fruits and veggies aid in weight loss by helping you to feel full (taking up the space in your stomach you might be tempted to devote to less healthy options).
All else being equal, whole grains are better than refined grains because they tend to be high in fiber and take longer to digest. This satisfies your hunger better and helps lower blood glucose levels and reduce fat.
It’s the best fruit for weight loss. That means Pink Lady over Granny Smith, watermelon over honeydew, red grapes over green ones. The higher levels of nutrients called flavonoids—particularly anthocyanins, compounds that give red fruits their color—calm the action of fat-storage genes. In fact, red-bellied stone fruits like plums boast phenolic compounds that have been shown to modulate the expression of fat genes.

I tried the Flat Belly Diet and stuck with it for about 8 months (then I got pregnant…lol…) and I lost 43 pounds on it! I lost 6 pounds the first week alone! It is this diet’s simplicity that attracted me to it… If you follow the diet’s instructions and get a bit exercise as well, it should work for you too. Here is the biggest reason why most diets work – we think of them as DIETS! Make the Flat Belly Diet food your LIFESTYLE – don’t be on a DIET but have a HEALTHY diet. Eat healthy and be healhy… It’s common sense, really…
Hey Esko, great stuff! And as far as cutting out elevators and things… LOVE the idea my friend… it all helps. I’m obviously a huge fan of swimming and have done videos and things on it, so in my opinion would be a great option for you if you’re not going to the gym. I personally do weights with a combo of sprinting and swimming and love it. What swimming exercise did you see? – the one at http://www.jasonstake.com/swimming-to-lose-weight.html ??
Olive oil is a light, low-calorie, delicious, and subtly fragrant oil.

Consume apple cider vinegar with your food. It will make your stomach fuller, thereby curbing your appetite. This remedy not only helps in reducing the chubbiness of your tummy, but also in regulating the blood sugar level.
A word of warning. You need to keep a close eye on your portion sizes, as it is very easy to overeat foods such as nuts and guacamole. Although they are high in nutrients and MUFA’s, they are still fats, which means they are high in calories. Therefore, you need to be careful, to ensure that you control your intake of these foods to ensure you lose belly fat. Add small, but regular portions of MUFA containing foods to your meals.
Coconut oil is also a thermogenic and burns fat. Many studies have shown that medium chain fatty acids when compared to the similar amount of calories from other fats, can improve feeling of fullness. Thus you automatically reduce calorie intake.
That’s why I decided to create the products I myself have always wanted: science-based formulations, clinically effective dosages of all ingredients, no fillers or unnecessary junk, and natural sweetening and flavoring.

Overall, the book is easy to read but seems a little preachy. The basic idea is to eat 4 400 calorie meals every day and have a monunsaturated fat (MUFA) at every meal. You start with a 4 day anti bloat menu, which is only 1200 calories. I lost 4 pounds in the first week starting with the anti bloat diet. I didn’t feel any less bloated, but I also didn’t feel bloated to begin with, so there’s that. I also started this after eating Christmas cookies all day long for two weeks, so I’m sure the dra …more

According to bodybuilder Tom Venuto, whole grains should be included in a fat-burning diet. Whole grains supply soluble fiber that aids in digestion. In addition to oats and oat bran, whole grains include barley, whole wheat, brown rice and spelt.
The initial four-day anti-bloat regimen is the most restrictive part of the program, capping daily calories at 1,200. It’s touted as a clean and simple way of eating that eliminates ingredients that promote unnecessary fluid retention and gas. Each day, you’ll have four 300-calorie meals that adhere to a rigid list of acceptable food and drink. That means lots of baby carrots, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, skim milk, extra-virgin olive oil, sunflower seeds, applesauce, chicken breast, organic deli roast turkey, tilapia and fresh or dried basil. You’ll also have 2 daily liters of homemade “Sassy Water,” which the authors claim “helps calm and soothe your GI tract.” It contains ingredients such as ginger, cucumber and mint leaves. Off limits: alcohol, coffee, tea, hot cocoa and acidic fruit juices, chewing gum, fatty foods, salt, broccoli and Brussels sprouts, and anything seasoned with barbecue sauce, horseradish, garlic, chili pepper, black pepper or other spices.
Don’t go by the sweet taste of cinnamon, it won’t increase your fat. In fact, cinnamon will help reduce your overall body fat including the belly fat. Cinnamon is a thermogenic. It means, cinnamon tends to produce heat through metabolic stimulation. Thus cinnamon makes you burn your fat. So, include 1 tsp. of ground cinnamon to your daily diet in order to increase your metabolism. Take ground cinnamon and not the cinnamon bark oil which may lead to ulcers, mouth sores and mouth burning when consumed. Cinnamon is one spice that you can cook with any food.
Moreover, the discovery that obesity actually has health-related conditions like diabetes has jump-started a million-dollar industry on weight loss products. From popular diets to supplements and even exercise accessories, the customer only has to look around to find a variety of fad options to choose from.

Get moving! If you do some moderate exercise, five times a week, you’ll be helping your metabolism and increase your metabolic rate. If you don’t have time for anything else, at least walk for 20 to 40 minutes every day. For more information read my article on how much walking you need to lose weight.
Sure, you can achieve a lot of weight loss by drinking a lot of water. In fact, if you drink two cups of water before a meal, you can lose about 7 kg in 12 weeks. You can also lose weight by opting to drink water rather than sugary drinks. Instead of drinking two cans of cola each day, drink plain water and save yourself 270 calories daily.
Nuts are an excellent way to curb hunger between meals. They’re high in protein, fiber, and heart-healthy fats. Studies suggest nuts can promote weight loss and improve cholesterol levels when eaten in moderation. They’re also rich in calories, so limit your portions. If you have to get them out of their shell, you’ll slow down and not eat as much.
