The diet itself is great - I've lost 5lbs already and I've only been doing it for a week! The meals are satisfying - you certainly don't go hungry, and it's great to find a diet where you can have chocolate without feeling guilty! The book is easy to follow and the idea behind specifically targeting visceral fat (deep belly fat which is the hardest fat to shift) is well-thought out. My only complaint would be that it would have been better if the authors had produced a specific English version as all the measures are US (1 cup, 1/2 cup etc) so I had to buy some new measuring cups. Similarly some ingredients are listed American style(zucchini, eggplant, grape tomatoes) and some brands/items it specifically mentions are unavailable in Britain, so again the book could do with translating for the English audience. That said it's a great diet (and I've tried them all!) and my husband is following it too and actually enjoying the meals without complaining that he's still hungry!

Tipping the scales at 8.5 stone, I am not exactly what you'd call portly, however, like many people in this day and age, I suffer from acute Irritable Bowel Syndrome(IBS) and have embarrassing problems with flatulence, bloating and water retention. My mum was about to start this diet and urged me to do it with her and since I had nothing to lose, we embarked on the "4-day jump start" diet and could both feel the difference within the first half of the first day. By the end of Day 1 we'd lost weight, but more importantly, our stomachs weren't bloated. Result!
The 4 day jump start diet has you strictly adhering to portion control and has you following recipes that are somewhat bland...But the results are well worth it. Things are spruiced up by the two litres of sassy water you have to drink throughout the day (water with ginger, lemon, cucumber and mint) and a fruit smoothie snack. After 4 days I lost half a stone, as did my mum... We were amazed at the results and so we decided to stick to the regimen outlined in the rest of the book, which isn't as strict as the first 4 days. There are simple but delicious recipes for you follow to ensure that you no longer have to suffer the discomfort of bloating and water retention.
I wasn't in this to lose weight, but was pleasantly surprised when I shed off a few pounds (slowly but effortlessly). My mum, who was doing this diet for the weight loss as well as to eradicate bloating was also happy with her weight loss -she lost one stone in a month! There is also an exercise plan for you to follow, but if you already work out, the authors' tell you to stick to what already works for you. It is also full of inspiring real-life success stories to keep you motivated. My mum was inspired to buy the book based on the reviews that she read on amazon.

Love this book as it gives you the background to the diet and a 14 day plan. My husband and I both lost 4lb in the first 4 days, even though we skipped the jump start, but did have sassy water. We have enjoyed many of the savoury recipies. I have made the front cover cup cake recipe (once I found out what canola oil was), but used the mix to make two 7" cakes rather than cupcakes. It is decidedly delicious and my grandchildren love it lots. It's a good idea for the 4th food portion of the day at around 8 or 9 ish. The chocolate zuccini snack cake is also delicious. (I used extravagant Lindt dark chocolate as a treat because I couldn't find dark choc chips, but now that I have, I'll try them next time). Don't forget the recipe makes 12 portions and you are only allowed one. It is also ample for an evening snack. It just doesn't feel like dieting. In fact we don't diet as such, just try to stay healthy and this book is a great tool. For any of you who may not know some of the terminology used, I've done a wee list, with apologies if, to some, I'm stating the obvious.
Cilantro - coriander
Canola oil - rapeseed oil
snow peas - mange toute
mesclun - small young salad leaf mix
scallions - spring onions
rigatoni - tube shaped pasta
jicana - sweetish, turnip like crunchy vegetable often used instead of water chestnuts in stir fries. Have never seen it in the UK.
zuccini - courgette
eggplant - aubergine
neuf chatel cheese - specialist french low fat cream cheese.
Flank steak - tougher cut of steak from abdominal muscles of cow - often marinated or tenderised before cooking
pastry flour - I use plain
tempeh - fermented soy beans mixed with grains - often used in Indonesian cooking instead of salt.

What pleases me is not just the idea that belly fat will be lost, but that MUFAs are also a great cholesterol buster.

The book was 2nd hand but surprisingly it is in excellent condition .
Some of the ingredients are only available in USA but it is challenging and fun to try and source an equivelant in UK. The 4 day starter diet was difficult but both my husband and I lost 4lbs so it was a great incentive to carry on.

After trying many ways to lose weight this for me, was the best! (I do realise that it won't suit everyone.) The most detailed information in this book gave me all the information I needed. OK it's American! so I worked round it. Health food shops & supermarkets have most products these days, but do read all labels!! It takes time to study and absorb the ideas. Yes it's based on counting calories and that takes some time to get to grips with but it depends how determined you are to lose weight! and change to a different way of eating for good! I have been doing this now for 24 days, have lost 9lbs and not been hungry. I find the Sassy water is to my taste and if our English weather is a bit cold then I warm it up in the microwave! For me the instructions and the recipies are well set out and I have tried some of the recipes, but now I am also making up my own 400 calorie meals as well. Flat Belly Diet! Cookbook
