Tips from the Belly Off! Diet

January 24, 2009 at 6:33 pm 2 comments

Men’s Health started an online weight-loss community called the “Belly Off! Club” back in 2002, and since then, club members have lost almost 2 million pounds.  Yowsa!  That’s alotta pounds!!  Their book, The Belly Off! Diet, is not due out ‘til April, but MSN is giving us a preview of some of tips contained in it.

  • Cut out refined grains and sugar
  • Eat more protein, healthy fats, fiber-rich fruits & veggies, and whole grains
  • Eat breakfast every day
  • Lift weights at least three times a week.
  • Do cardio workouts, especially interval training

None of these are particularly new methods for slimming down, but it never hurts to reinforce good techniques through repetition.  And, because this books is written by men for men, it might reach a whole new audience that doesn’t always respond to more typical diet plans.

    I know for me and many other men, it’s not that we not aware of what we need to do, we just hate for the most part, doing things by ourselves. There is a strong need among men, to do things together, especially when the objective is to lose weight and divorce the belly. Finally, convincing yourself that you need to do something like lose the belly, because it’s unhealthy for you, takes more than a diet sometimes. Sometimes, all it takes is the loving support of a love one.

    No matter how they present it, I think anything that contains the word diet is bound to scare men! If it was called the Belly Off! Exercise Plan I think it might stand a better chance with us!
