Based on the latest science, the 21-Day Tummy diet targets excess weight and belly fat while addressing the most common digestive disorders.
We love to eat but that doesn't mean our stomachs always enjoy digesting what we put in them. Add to this the fact that our nation is heavier than it's ever been, and it's clear that our tummies don't just need to function better, they need to be smaller. In general, smaller stomachs digest food more effectively, and that's why dropping the pounds isn't just a matter of vanity but of health.
Featuring carb-light, anti-inflammatory foods, the 21-Day Tummy eating plan slashes inches from your belly (up to 4 ½ inches!) while banishing gas and bloating, heartburn and acid relux, constipation, diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Health journalist Vaccariello (The Digest Diet) presents a three-week program designed to resolve symptoms of five common digestive disorders and the belly bulge that accompanies them. The same diet that alleviates gastro-intestinal problems like heartburn and acid reflux, gas and bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome also results in a flat stomach. Exploring the connection between digestion and weight, explaining the role of gut bacteria, and identifying diet as the major cause behind the chronic inflammation, she advises how to "die[t] away digestive disorders." A 3-phase, day-by-day food plan, featuring over 50 recipes, shows readers how to calm their sensitive stomachs, enjoy delicious dining, flatten those tummies, and lose an average of 6-10 lbs. With lively writing, inviting four-color format, pull-outs, sidebars, nine personal success stories (including the author's), and enticing photography, this book is a winner.
