MUFAs - Anyone familar?
Is anyone familiar with MUFAs? I guess their things like avocados, olives, olive oils and other oils, nuts, dark chocolate. They are supposed to help reduce belly fat. I'm wondering if anyone has tried them and do you need to incorporate them into every meal or just some meals. Those things are pretty caloric and it'd probably be pretty hard to incorporate them into every meal, but maybe it's something I could think about when I start maintenance. I have a good pad of belly pudge that I really want to shrink and I'm just looking for ideas. From what I understand they only way to do it is diet and cardio and I'm already doing a ton of cardio (and 2xs/wk weight training) and I do calorie count so I need other ideas to help in this area. I'm only about 10-15lbs away from my goal and I'm not positive it's all going to come from my belly, but boy that would be nice. It might though, there really isn't anywhere left for it to come from...
