( - NEW YORK - January 6th, 2015 - Belly fat plagues millions of Americans. So do bloating, heartburn and other tummy troubles. It's no coincidence that these problems often occur together. As Reader's Digest editor-in-chief, New York Times best-selling author and weight loss expert Liz Vaccariello revealed in the 21-Day Tummy diet plan, the same foods that pack on the pounds can also lead to gastrointestinal problems, and the culprits are surprising. Based on the 21-Day Tummy New York Times best-selling diet plan, Vaccariello teamed up again with Kate Scarlata, RD, LDN, to create the 21-Day Tummy Diet Cookbook featuring 150 new quick and easy delicious recipes to help increase and maintain weight loss and keep digestive symptoms in check. 21-Day Tummy Diet Cookbook is available now at and wherever books are sold on December 23.

21-Day Tummy Cookbook is chock full of healthy and tasty recipes to shrink, sooth and satisfy any belly. Most people who suffer from chronic digestive issues assume they either need to eat bland foods or rely on pills to feel better. But the foods that help us both shrink and soothe our stomachs-which the diet calls "Belly Buddies"-include delicious favorites such as Greek yogurt, strawberries, peanut butter, maple syrup, and potatoes. The cookbook's recipes feature many healthful foods designed to balance gut flora for optimal health and weight loss. The easy-to-use cookbook focuses on carb-light, anti-inflammatory foods scientifically proven to balance gut flora, reduce inflammation, soothe the digestive system and shrink fat cells ("Belly Buddies"), while avoiding pro-inflammatory fats and high-fructose foods ("Belly Bullies").

The thousands of Americans who have already discovered 21-Day Tummy will find 21-Day Tummy Diet Cookbook an invaluable companion, helping them maintain and extend their weight loss results-and keep their digestive symptoms in check-with easy recipes they can make at home. For those who haven't yet experienced the diet, the book includes the basics of the eating plan so they can enjoy the same amazing results as readers of the original book.

"The 21-Day Tummy Diet Cookbook is filled with tummy-taming recipes that are easy to make and use ingredients that shrink and calm tummies," said Vaccariello. "Best of all for the busiest among us - most recipes can be prepared in less than 30 minutes, are easy to make, and can be frozen for easy on-the-go meals during a hectic week. But most importantly, they help you stay healthier, happier and feeling your best."
