Publisher's Summary

Great-looking abs are more than just a way to support the mirror industry. In fact, strong abs and flat stomachs are the ultimate indicator of overall health for both men and women. Great abs will help you live longer, sleep better, prevent back pain, and significantly improve your sex life! (And, hey, they don't look half-bad in the mirror, either.) Unfortunately, you could spend years on starvation diets and extreme exercise programs that never unearth those elusive stomach muscles.
Or you could spend just six weeks with David Zinczenko, Editor-in-Chief of Men's Health magazine, on The Abs Diet, an easy and effective program for everyone that is helping thousands of people lose weight, flatten their guts, banish post-pregnancy bellies, and become healthier than they ever thought possible.
What's more, once on this revolutionary new diet you'll look and feel better than ever without deprivation dieting, counting calories, measuring foods, worrying about confusing phases, or ever feeling hungry!
Sound impossible? Let David Zinczenko prove it to you. As Editor-in-Chief of the world's most important men's magazine, Zinczenko has devoted his career to helping people improve their lives through the latest and most well-researched health, nutrition, and exercise information available.
Now, in his national best seller, Zinczenko reveals his infallible formula that works for both men and women.
The Abs Diet is the best, last, and only diet and nutrition plan that you will ever need.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.


What the Critics Say

"Rational recommendations for a realistic diet plan....Best of all, this book tells readers why it works: increase your body's metabolism, gain some muscle, and fat burns away. The authors make this seem like a fresh and very attainable ideal." (Publishers Weekly)

Not for Females or if you have minimal fat to lose

What would have made The Abs Diet better?

Not discussing that losing fat from your girth will make your penis look larger...oh and that abs can improve your sex life because it improves the thrusting action...really?? This book is marketed at Males and females however the pep talks are focused purely on a mans ego.
Like most diet books..talks about cleaning up your diet, cutting out the crap and exercise using resistance and HIIT. Ok ...anybody with 20 + lbs to lose who incorporates these habits will lose weight not rocket science. But what if you are like me, a female figure athlete, who has minimal weight to lose but retains fat around the abdominal.. this is the ab diet after all? If you have been training/competing for a while this book cannot tell you a thing that you do not know already and is just another money making run of the mill, churn them out common sense diet book with an attention grabbing title.

What will your next listen be?
