I am very pleased with this book. I've been on the Abs Diet for a couple of weeks now, and feel so much better because it is a _highly doable_ sensible eating plan with the most current information on how to fuel a body to run efficiently and burn fat.

Also, the options are laid out in a way that can fit various life styles and limitations. Time, expense, family obligations, and not wanting to always put a lot of energy into managing meals are all factors that I have to contend with at various times. I must have a plan that I can easily tweak to adapt to my daily circumstances. This plan is the first one I've found that works for me. I also follow Dr. Oz, and find much of the same information about healthy eating is presented on his show. This book, however, synthesises a lot of confusing dietary recommendations into an achievable process. This book makes it easy and takes the stress out. I'm feeling so much better and my cravings have subsided. I am beginning to lose weight at last. I highly recommend this.

Individuals can taylor it to meet their needs. I am hypothyroid, which makes it hard for the weight to come off under 1500 calories a day. I combine this plan with a myfitnesspal.com to monitor my intake. This is working well for me.

This is my first review; on anything. While I do rely on Amazon reviews most of the time, I never thought I'd actually write one myself, but this book soooo inspired me! I'm not new to diet and nutrition, I actually ate most of the 12 powerfoods prior to reading the book and knew how bad "white stuff" was (as opposed to whole grains). My problem like so many others is just plain over eating! I was at my heaviest when I got this book and was basically in denial. This book really opened my eyes and actually got me obsessed with losing weight. In just under 3 weeks I lost eight pounds and went from a size 12 pants to a 10. I have a long way to go but this is the first plan that I feel I can live with forever. You truly are not hungry on this plan if you follow it properly. The book is very easy to understand and the author is witty and interesting. After I read this book I also got the new abs diet cookbook, as I wanted a physical book also (I got the ebook version of this particular book so I always had it handy). There are plenty of recipes in this one too, but I just couldn't get enough!

I'm no stranger to health and fitness. I started exercising when I was 12 and have watched my weight my entire life. I'm vegetarian and have never had any issues keeping my weight at a certain point. When I turned 40 everything changed and my body wanted to start gaining weight. I upped my exercise routine and restricted my diet even more than usual, but saw no results. In fact, I ended up dropping my calories down to 800-1100 calories a day out of desperation (I know that's not healthy) and was still seeing no results whatsoever. I went to every doctor in town and had my thyroid, hormones, insulin, (you name it) all checked out and I was told repeatedly that I was very healthy and I just needed to find a good diet that worked for me. The problem was, I had already tried every diet out there and couldn't lose even one pound on any of them.

I kept restricting my calories even more trying to lose the weight I'd gained. This went on for two years and still no results of any kind. I had forgotten what a healthy sized meal consisted of. I knew my body was in starvation mode and I needed a diet that would, not necessarily show me what to eat, but show me how much to eat. When I came across this diet I noticed I already had all the foods in my pantry. I didn't even need to go shopping, so I knew this would be the diet for me. It would use all my usual foods and show me the amounts I should be eating.

I'm now eating 1350-1550 calories a day and I've lost 5 lbs in 2 weeks. That's a miracle for me because I wasn't even losing one pound on other diets. I always lift weights 5 days a week - because of the muscle mass I'm building the scale usually won't budge and I have to use a tape measure to track my results. So, seeing the scale go down 5 lbs in two weeks is incredible.

This book is easy to read and understand. There are multiple do'able meals you can prepare on your own. Workouts are perfect for beginners and advanced workout guru's. I lost 8lbs in 2 months and 2 lbs away from my ideal weight of 140. I gained muscle and went down 2-3 dress sizes. The best part you get a cheat day once a week.

Hubby and I enjoy staying fit. The first time we decided to get healthy and stay healthy, we did it wrong. We starved ourselves and worked out like crazy. We ended up looking gaunt. This book, at least for my goal of being lean without the "skinny" look, helped me start over. Follow the recipes down to the ounces, make sure you choose the right whey protein (isolate) for your shakes. Gold Standard works best for me. Substitute if the ingredients are unavailable.

Awesome guide. Not 5 stars because it doesn't necessarily point out how best to use the book aka a calendar, a start and end goal.

FYI, we had our third baby in November. I was 190 lbs. post partum. In 2 months, I am down to 150 lbs. and still going. Goal weight is 130 lbs (within normal BMI range). DON'T STARVE YOURSELF! The only difficult time is to START by training yourself to eat differently and eat in moderation ;) This book teaches you the POWER FOODS. Stick to it!

TIP: For women, the general guide is 1200 - 1500 calories per day TO LOSE FAT, not muscle. Stick to good proteins like fish, white meat and eggs. Look for healthy options to your bean dip/bean dish recipes. Lastly, EXERCISE MODERATELY. :) Good luck!
