NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Zero Belly Diet is the revolutionary new plan to turn off your fat genes and help keep you lean for life! Nutrition expert David Zinczenko—the New York Times bestselling author of the Abs Diet series, Eat This, Not That! series, and Eat It to Beat It!—has spent his entire career learning about belly fat—where it comes from and what it does to us. And what he knows is this: There is no greater threat to you and your family—to your health, your happiness, even your financial future.
Yes, you can: Change your destiny. Overcome your fat genes. Strip away belly fat and finally attain the lean, strong, healthy body you’ve always wanted.
With Zero Belly Diet, David Zinczenko reveals explosive new research that explains the mystery of why some of us stay thin, and why some can’t lose weight no matter how hard we try. He explains how some foods turn our fat genes on—causing seemingly irreversible weight gain—and uncovers the nine essential power foods that act directly on those switches, turning them to “off” and allowing for easy, rapid, and sustainable weight loss. And he shows how these foods help heal your digestive system, keeping those gene switches turned off and setting you up for a lifetime of leanness.
Other diets can help you lose weight, but only the Zero Belly diet attacks fat on a genetic level, placing a bull’s-eye on the fat cells that matter most: visceral fat, the type of fat ensconced in your belly. These fat cells act like an invading army, increasing inflammation and putting you at risk for diabetes, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, heart disease, and cancer. Visceral fat can also can alter your hormone levels, erode muscle tissue, increase your chances of depression, and destroy your sex drive. But you can turn the odds in your favor.
Zero Belly Diet shows you how to deactivate your fat genes, rev up your metabolism, banish bloat, and balance your digestive health, allowing you to easily build lean, strong stomach muscle and strip away unwanted belly fat without sacrificing calories or spending hours at the gym. The result: weight loss that is easier, faster, more lasting, and more delicious than you’d ever imagine.
You’ll be stunned and inspired by the results of an amazing 500-person test panel—men and women who lost weight quickly, and with ease, following the Zero Belly diet. In just the first 14 days:
Bob McMicken, 51, lost 16.3 pounds
Kyle Cambridge, 28, lost 15 pounds
Martha Chesler, 54, lost 11 pounds

Zero Belly Diet features a week-by-week menu plan, fifty tasty recipes, and a handy shopping list that leads to a minimum of cooking and plenty of feasting.
Best of all, Zero Belly Diet offers something more: freedom. Freedom from bloating, freedom from food deprivation, freedom from weight loss fads, freedom from stress. So say goodbye to your paunch and hello to a happier, healthier you!
healthy weight—a man’s medical costs increased by 4 percent and his drug costs increased by 2 percent. Which says a lot, since the average American man’s BMI is 26.6. (The average woman’s: 26.5.) But the real cost of being overweight doesn’t come in the form of prescription pills and diet products. It’s not the money we spend on obesity; it’s the money that obesity prevents us from making. In a study published in the International Journal of Obesity, researchers gave participants a series of
study by researchers at the University of Florida found that the thinnest women make a whopping $22,283 more then their overweight peers. For American women, gaining 25 pounds results in an average salary differential of $15,572. Think of it this way: an overweight woman who works for 25 years will wind up with $389,300 less than a thinner one. Add in 25 years of paying that extra eight grand in health care costs, and the total swing between slender and stocky amounts to $598,425. Think dropping

At the top of the movement, you should be standing on your right leg atop the bench with your left thigh perpendicular to your body and parallel to the floor. Reverse the motion as you step back with your left leg to plant it on the floor behind you. Step your right foot off the bench and plant it on the floor so your feet are

Plus, to speed your own attack on belly fat, I’ve created a special group of ZERO BELLY workouts—full-body workouts that systematically attack belly fat, without a single sit-up! (By the way, a lot of our test panel had great results without doing the workouts.) I’m excited about this plan for a lot of reasons, but especially for these: • ZERO BELLY is unique: it targets belly fat specifically, powered

(Hey, it’s only a week! I’ll explain more about the dessert embargo below.) On the regular plan, you’d have three meals and two snacks, with one of those snacks being a drink. Here, I’m replacing both breakfast and lunch with drinks and eliminating one snack entirely, plus getting a little tough on you at dinnertime.
