snacking on nuts can be VERY fattening. I think that should mention that you can snack on like 5 nuts.

I don't live in the US either, but I imagine leave behind 1/4 of breakfast, lunch, and dinner will work anywhere!

A personal trainer at my gym who is a nutritionist commented that to lose that belly fat that is left eat NO carbs for dinner and after Mon - Fri. eat whatever you want on the weekends. That should help.

If you skipped an entire days worth of meals your metabolism actually slows down and it does the opposite for your body. Instead of losing fat like you think you would, your body stores it because it can't tell when it will get food again. Eat half to 3/4 of your meals and make sure you have a healthy snack inbetween each meal. You should be eating 5 times a day. Crazy but true :-)
