Tighten Your Tummy in 2 Weeks is a revolutionary new program that triggers hormones to burn more fat and melt pounds and inches primarily from the belly. A woman's tummy has now replaced her thighs as the most-troublesome body part. Seventy-six percent of women surveyed in 2014 admitted that they were unhappy with their midsection. And a large tummy is a warning sign of significant potential health issues. QUESTION: How would you like to lose 14 inches from your waist and 14 pounds of body fat in only 14 days? The proof is in the pictures: 41 women at Gainesville Health & Fitness in Florida tested the Tighten Your Tummy in 2 Weeks program under the direction of fitness expert Ellington Darden, PhD, who documented success stories with remarkable before-and-after photographs. Readers can expect results similar to Dr. Darden's test panel. For example, in just 2 weeks: • Roxanne Dybevick, 54, lost 15.08 pounds • Angela Choate, 68, lost 14.8 pounds • Katie Fellows Smith, 60, lost 14.51 pounds • Denise Rodriguez, 34, lost 14.49 pounds • Brianna Kramer, 23, lost 14.26 pounds What causes such rapid loss of midsection flab? The answer is Dr. Darden's remarkable 5-step formula: 1) A special at-home resistance exercise technique called "15-15-15, plus 8 to 12" triggers fat cells to burn and release fat, effectively "spot-reducing" the belly. 2) A carbohydrate-rich eating plan of five or six small meals a day. Yes, "carbs are okay." A bagel for breakfast is on the daily meal plan. 3) Extra sleep at night and a nap during the day to turbo-charge the shrinking of pounds and inches. 4) A tummy-tightening trick called the inner-abs vacuum that's performed before every meal. 5) Sipping ice-cold water all day long, which synergizes the loss of fat and the strengthening of muscle. What Women Like You Are Saying About the Tighten Your Tummy Program: • "I've rediscovered my hour-glass figure." • "My jeans fit again: they feel like an old friend." • "The Power Start Diet made me feel powerful . . . and I like that feeling." • "I love the person I now see in the mirror."
