Based on the Flat Belly Diet, which came out in 2008, “Flat Belly Yoga,” a 266-page softcover book in the iconic yellow and purple of the Flat Belly Diet, offers a combination of yoga, strength training and cardio along with the Flat Belly Diet meal plan. If you're not familiar with the plan, the cornerstone of it is the use of monounsaturated fats, or MUFAs, at every meal. They include satiating foods such as olives, avocados, dark chocolate, nuts and seeds.
Fowler, who developed the “No Om Zone” yoga DVD and book and has a string of YAS (Yoga and Spinning) fitness studios, puts her spin on this workout, which is a core-strengthening yoga-plus-weights routine.
The 4-Week Flat Belly Yoga Workout plan, which is outlined in the book, combines interval-training power walks with Fowler’s hybrid-yoga workouts. Each routine is outlined in the book with lots of photos.
And lest you think that you can’t fit in time for workouts, there is an entire chapter devoted to Creating Time for Workouts.
The book also includes a 28-day journal, a Four-Day Jump Start diet, tips on how to maximize weight loss, how to avoid injuries, and lots of testimonials from people who found success with the Flat Belly Yoga test program. There are shopping lists for each week of the eating plan, and quick and easy recipes for the Jump Start diet.
