Customer Reviews

I would recommend this book to anyone who is following the Abs diet.
Fred Jackson
The only disappointment is that all of the Abs Diet books repeat all of the same information about how the diet works...this takes up alot of the book.
Diet Book Queen
This book has quick easy recipes and I tried some of them so far so good.

This latest book in the Abs Diet franchise is essentially another recipe book. As the title indicates, these are quickie recipes that can be made in minutes, though they throw in a few more involved meals at the end. Be clear, these are tasty and healthful recipes aimed at the fitness-oriented individual. You don't have to necessarily be following the Abs Diet plan per se, but anyone who has adopted a weightlifting + aerobics exercise program with a high-protein, controlled-carb and controlled-fat diet will find this book has what you're looking for, especially if you want meals you can make quickly and stick into a tupperware container to eat throughout the day.

Most of the recipes are not fancy, and many are quite obvious, being nothing more than various ways to combine ingredients to make a dozen versions of sandwiches, salads, breakfast omelettes, smoothies, etc. But as simple as they are, some of the combos just wouldn't have occurred to me on my own, but when I tried them, they were quite tasty! (Example: Brown rice mixed with black beans, heat, put a fried egg on top, and spoon some salsa over it. Simple, easy, and a great filling breakfast that can easily be put in a plastic container and microwaved at the office.)

This isn't a cookbook for entertaining guests with or preparing meals for a potluck. The recipes aren't fancy and someone not dedicated to eating and living like this might find them a bit plain. I find them nourishing and filling and they've added to my reportoire, so when I prepare the 5-6 meals I eat every day, I always have a decent variety to choose from. The "Abs Diet Eat Right Every Time Guide" also contains a lot of good recipes to choose from. This book is a good companion to that one.

This is the perfect companion for the "The Abs Diet: The Six-Week Plan to Flatten Your Stomach and Keep You Lean for Life" Book, and "The ABS Diet Eat right Everytime Guide". Buy this book only if you at least have read the first "ABS Diet" Book.

This book is dedicated to recipes that complement the eating strategies outlined in The Abs Diet Book. This will make your life easier, by providing quick and easy to prepare recipes that help you burn belly fat.

You eat more frequently, you eat consciously, and you exercise. It works !!! This plan keeps your metabolism at maximum speed all day long. I eat more than I ever ate before, and I have been able to keep in good shape.

If you follow the authors advices in their different ABS Diet Books you get amazing and most wanted results I was able to lost more than 200 lbs, and also I have been able to keep in shape for more than two years. I am in the best shape of my life thanks to The ABS Diet. I went from size 44 to size 32 pants.

The really important thing for me is not just that you will look great, but that you will feel great and that you will be healthier than ever.

Don't take my word, try the ABS diet and I am sure that you will get the results that you expect. Just stay in the plant until it becomes habit. !!!

Another tools you may want to consider, to complement this book and your strategies for boosting your metabolism, loosing weight, and even more important keeping that weight off are:

- A Body Fat Monitor or Scale. This will help you monitor your progress, to assure that the weight you are loosing is fat (fat lost = increased metabolism) and not muscle, water or bone mass (decreased metabolism).

The first part of this book is a repeat of the info contained in the Abs Diet book. The recipes are okay. There are a lot of smoothies, egg dishes, and various recipes for various meat dishes. I'd check the book out from your local library before I spent money on it.

This is the first Abs Diet book that disappointed me. I am excited to have finally found a diet that is practical and healthy, and was looking forward to a cookbook filled with great ideas for new recipies. What this is, however, is a recap of the entire Abs Diet for the first half of the book, and then a few recipies with a whole lot of variations. Many recipies are virtually identical with only one or two ingredients changed. I found nothing new that wasn't in the original books. If you would never have thought to substitute raspberries for blueberries, then you might find this book helpful. But for those of us who love to cook, (thus leading to a need for the Abs Diet...) there is nothing really helpful or new.

O.K., the recipe's are not what you would find in your typical recipe book, but they're nutritious, filling, & pretty yummy- Not at all like a traditional diet book. This diet has elements of Atkins, but adds food that is forbidden in Atkins. High protein, high fiber, low carbs, low sugar. It's only been 2 days, but I already feel healthier. Don't look at the scale right away. Mine showed an immediate gain of 2 lbs., but this is real food, not diet food. It takes a while to be processed. I've done Atkins with the same initial experience. You should notice the initial difference in the looser feel of your clothes. 5 STARS!!!
