-----FLAT BELLY DIET-----

Eating healthy fats reduce belly fat. Here with us to show us how that works is Cynthia Sass, the co-author of the new flat belly diet book and the nutrition director of Prevention Magazine.

How does this diet differ from others out there and why is it considered a breakthrough diet?
There are 4 things that set this diet apart:

  • It's based on solid research, including long-standing studies and brand new studies.
  • It was developed by Cynthia Sass, one of the most well known registered dietitians in the country. Cynthia holds masters degrees in both nutrition science and public health, was a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association for six years, and has counseled real people for nearly 15 years.
  • This diet was tested on a group of 10 women and 1 man in the summer of 2007.
  • There is no "maintenance phase" - it's a plan you can stick with for life.

    Do you advocate people remaining on this diet for life?
    Yes

    What kind of results have you seen in dieters in terms of health benefits?
    Reduced blood pressure, better blood sugar control, more energy, less aches and pains, better sleep, more level moods and feeling calm, healthier looking hair and skin, loss of belly fat and body fat. We did not measure blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, etc. We only measured weight, inches and body fat but the above list is from the testers themselves.

    What led you to develop this diet?
    Two things: 67% of women say the belly is the area of their body they most want to change and belly fat is the most dangerous type of fat. Even small amounts of excess belly fat increase the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, inflammation, and other diseases.

    What are the cornerstones of this diet plan and describ?
    Cornerstones:

  • Four 400 calorie meals per day that include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins
  • A MUFA at every meal
  • Eating about every 4 hours
  • Emotional aspects: manage stress, ask for support, conquer emotional eating

    Two stages:
    4 day jump start - targets belly bloat and water retention, helps the dieter "deflate" the belly and get ready physically and mentally for the regular diet

    -----PAUL STANLEY-----

    From the New York high school of music and art to a rock icon with kiss, Paul Stanley has now found success in another form of art.

    For more than 30 years, Paul Stanley has reigned supreme as one of the single-most recognizable front-men in the history of rock and roll. He's the principal songwriter, driving force and unwavering voice of KISS.

    A visionary and trendsetter since the early 1970s, Stanley's passion for both the musical and visual arts has perhaps been the key to the astonishing ongoing world phenomenon known as KISS.

    His artistic and visual input has been seen in his designs of KISS album covers, stages and apparel. As an art major and graduate of the prestigious high school of Music and Art in NYC, Stanley has returned to his passion for painting, to share with you the deep emotions his art conveys.

    Stanley creates portraits and abstracts that are emotionally charged compositions. He aims to maximize the direct, physical impact of his paintings through scale, texture, color and simplicity of images.

    In a few short years of exhibiting, Stanley's works have been acquired by numerous art collectors and he has been commissioned to create large works to be displayed by an international corporate entity.

    Stanley's tremendous success as a painter has translated in to well over $2 million in art sales for 2007.
