The editors of Prevention Magazine have created a way to help you remove that unwanted fat from those places in your body that you desperately want fat to be removed: the arms, thighs, hips, and the belly.
This diet also states that it would erase the toxic visceral fat that has been linked to those with cardiac problems and diabetes. The authors have also remarked that as much as 19 pounds can be taken from the weight in 35 days.
This diet plan has two phases:
The Anti-Boat Jumpstart—a four-day diet that will reset your hormones and help reduce the bloating of the stomach. It consists of 4 meals a day with a yield of 1200 calories/day.
The Four-Week Eating Plan—the caloric intake would increase up to 1600 calories/day. Every meal should have an item that has high monounsaturated fatty acids.
Foods to Include in the Belly Melt Diet
The foods that are included here are meat strip sources such as lamb, turkey and chicken. Fish and shrimp are also included. Pork and beef are left out. Vegetables play an important part in this diet. Eggs, fat-free yogurt and cheese make up the dairy and poultry section. Whole grain bread, banana, pineapple, grapefruit, nuts, dark chocolate, olive oil and canola oil also take part.

The Belly Melt Diet has over 100 recipes that can sate the hunger pangs and fill the body with all kinds of nutrients.

The Belly Melt diet conveniently includes the Perfect Timing Workouts instructional section for those who want to efficiently remove fat through exercises at specific times of the day. Cardio exercises of 30 minutes should take place after waking up in the morning. Strength training should also be part of the exercise regimen and it should take place between 4pm-8pm.
- Recipes are included
- Some of the recipes can be very flavorful
- Hormonal resetting is part of the goal
- Encourages healthy fat consumption
- The early weight loss will focus on water weight
- Portion sizes should still be monitored
- The belly area may not be affected as much
The Belly Melt regimen is certainly something to consider, especially for those who do not desire a diet that would limit their food consumption. It encourages consumption of healthy fats for stabilization of lipid profile, as well as regular exercise. It may take a long time to lose belly fat with this plan, but it still offers great choices.
