It's best-selling author Berit Nordstrand's fall-in-love-with-life approach to food that makes her belly fat program unique. We now know that it's the fact around your belly, rather than anywhere else on your body, that's the most dangerous to health. Belly fat causes problems for the liver, kidneys and heart and contributes to cardiovascular disease, asthma, migraine, rheumatism, cancer, depression and of course diabetes. For men, a healthy waist size measures less than 94 cm and for women, a waist less than 80 cm. In this book, Berit sets clear, short-term goals to help you to reduce your belly fat over 12 weeks. Her program is packed with food and body facts, and simple food tips, tricks and more than 65 recipes that speed up the rate at which your body burns fat, increase your muscle mass and help you reach your ideal, healthy waist size.
What if one small adjustment to your workout could unlock the results you’ve been dreaming of? An easy and straightforward way to achieve healthy weight loss, this groundbreaking guide shows how just one hour of exercise a week can turn into a lifetime of wellbeing. We’re all aware of the ways today’s modern lifestyle takes a toll on our health—not enough time means fast food trumps nutritious meals and the couch wins over the treadmill. But did you know that just twenty minutes three days per week is all the time you need to burn away belly fat and get your health back on track? The trick: It has to be the right kind of exercise. Based on ten years of scientific research at the University of New South Wales, Belly Fat Breakthrough shows how, by incorporating a simple interval training routine and delicious Mediterranean eating plan, you can shed—and keep off—that stubborn excess belly fat. With simple, easy-to-follow guidelines, Dr. Stephen Boutcher explains how to apply exercise, healthy eating, and stress management in a practical, easy-to-follow program that will overhaul your bad habits. And you’ll see the difference in just six weeks. Too much belly fat increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and research has shown that most types of diet and exercise won’t help you lose it. At last there is a solution. Belly Fat Breakthrough will make you rethink your attitude to getting and staying healthy. It’s not simply a diet—it’s a total lifestyle revolution.
