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.


What the Critics Say

Now it all makes sense

What a fabulous book! I have been working out for almost a year on my own and have seen results, but have been frustrated in the time it's taken to accomplish specific things. Reading on my own about protein intake, amino acids, and various other supplements had me pointed in the right general direction, but 'The Abs Diet' has given me so much more insight! This is a great book for filling in the gaps between all the general information out there, and thoroughly explains WHY these various things are important in each phase of your weight loss process. This book is extremely well written and well narrated. It feels like you're talking with one of your workout buds who has ALL the answers. If you've been struggling with finding those lost abs, or are just looking for it all to make sense, I can't recommend this book any more highly!!

Skip this if you're a woman...

The narrator is definetely speaking to a male audience - if you're a woman, do not bother, - especially if you're easily offend. The attempts at humor are sophomoric and crass.
