The best part of this diet is that I'm never really craving all of those bad foods.

I bought the original Abs Diet book several years ago and intended to go on the diet but I never got around to really starting.

Eight weeks ago, I weighed 185 pounds (I'm 5' 10") and I was starting to really show some of those love handles. I knew that I didn't need to lose a ton of weight, 10-15 pounds maybe.

After being on the diet for 8 weeks, I've lost 11 pounds and I'm still losing weight. I've probably lost more than that amount in fat since the goal of this diet is to put on a few pounds of muscle. My love handles are almost gone and my abs are starting to show.

The best part of this diet is that I'm never really craving all of those bad foods. Eating tasty yet nutritious food six times a day and a cheat meal once (OK, for me maybe twice) a week is more than enough to satisfy my cravings.

Two small drawbacks: The healthy foods (fruit, veggies, low fat dairy, poultry, etc.) tend to be more expensive than the bad food (candy bars, pasta, hot dogs, etc.). Also, eating six small meals requires a little planning to make sure that you always have them so you won't take a trip to the convenience store for a Snickers bar.

People who want to lose weight the healthy way and, more importantly, improve their overall health should definately try this.

This is a very good book, however Kindle is absolutely the wrong format for it. Some books must be in hard copy, and this is one of them. Time and again, there are helpful demonstrative graphs and charts showing foods, diets, nutritional values and they simply get chopped off in the Kindle alignment. Also, this book is a TOOL. All books like these are tools for you to use. You may read the book but after that, you read from it. You must flip around, look at a chart, use an exercise plan, then pull a few diets, then the power foods list. Kindle doesn't support this.

Well written, but wait the extra few days and spend a few extra bucks for a paperback edition. You will get the full value of this excellent source of information and diet plan.

Being a part of the internet generation, I'm sceptical about most things I see and read on the web.
However, this book has changed my life. Not in the way that I woke up one day and way mysteriously transformed from head to toe, but in my understanding of how your body works.
After the first year of college I was stuck with the dreaded 'Freshman 15'. Only it was more something along the lines of 25.

I wasn't really overweight, just very bulky. I enjoy sports a lot and had field hockey practice, swimming sessions and jogging sessions during the week. However, none of this worked due to my lack of understanding of how your body processes food, and how to build muscle effectively in order to destroy fat. The pounds didn't go away, I was merely working on my physical condition and endurance. This book changed my whole view on that.

Your college years are by no means easy years in terms of weight management. Irregular hours and even more irregular sleeping patterns. Unhealthy food and midnight snacks all around. Let all of that sip in the most alcohol-infused time of your life and you've probably got one of the most unhealthiest regimes in the world. So I decided to grab this book.

The key to the success of this book is that it doesn't say like other diets 'Do this, eat that.' It explains you WHY you SHOULD eat this, and not that. It tells you what happens when you eat this, it tells you what happens when you eat that. I believe the success of the whole diet is in that. After reading all of the facts and studies David presents you with, it makes a mental click. You are going to WANT to follow his instructions, just for your physical wellbeing. Unline other diets, you won't be looking at the diet like a teenager looking at homework.

I'm on a mission to get healthy and most definitely recommend this book to everyone! Just a little FYI...this is the very plan that the marines use to get in shape and stay that way, so consider how very healthy and muscular they are and that should help motivate you as it did me to get up and get moving!

I purchased this book along with the Abs diet for women for a coworker last week. I noticed they are about the same except for one important thing. There is NO guidelines for daily calorie intake according to height, wieght, bmi etc. The women's edition however has it all down to the T. Daily calorie intake etc. Its almost like that whole 2 pages were accidentally left out of the men's editon. 1/2 of the book is success stories and "study after study after study" It lays out the foods to eat and when i guess but, other then saying a man needs 1 gram of protein per pound of weight, which I assume most men already know. Eat smart 5 or 6 times a day, do cardio everyother day, Strength training 3 or so days a week, and put the money you would spend on this book towards some protein powder.

Diet and Exercise are always key in obtaining a great body, but the abs are the most difficult and older you get, due to the middle age spread

The "diet" itself is fantastic (I lost nearly 20 lbs following the guidance) and the book is educational and an enjoyable read but there's really very little here in terms of an update to the previous version. There also appears to be a lack of overall quality control with some "Continued on" pages referencing the incorrect page number (maybe the number was correct in the previous version?) and some conflicting guidance (one page says to do crunches very slowly and deliberately while two pages later it references a study that says you should do them pretty much as quickly as you can). If you have the older version, don't bother with this one. If you don't, then definitely pick it up. The program is fairly easy to follow and will definitely provide results.
