    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.

    Overall

    Started the Abs Diet just before Thanksgiving. Six weeks later (around Xmas), I had lost about 20 lbs of fat and gained 5 lbs of muscle. Went from 200 lbs to 185 lbs, even through the holidays. I did it pretty religiously for the 6 weeks, including the three 30-minute strength trainings per week and the optional 30-minute aerobic sessions per week. Now that the 6-week portion is over, I strength train for 30-40 minutes once or twice per week and run or swim for 30 minutes once or twice per week (three days of something each week). I have lost an additional few pounds, and a total of 1-2 inches off my waste.

    What about the diet? It is basically low fat and high in protein and fiber. You eat three meals and three snacks per day. You get one "cheat meal" per week, where you can eat anything (pizza, beer, ice cream, etc). Once you are done with the 6-week session, you go to one "cheat day" per week. I didn't find it all that restrictive. No restriction on carbs like most popular diets. Everything is very reasonable and doable. The portion control is simply "keep in within the dimensions of your plate, and put a height restriction on it".

    There are some additional paper-back books and web resources they offer to further help, including more recipes, exercises, and advice on what to choose when you eat out to help keep your fat intake down.

    I have found it to be a very practical and doable lifestyle diet, something that I can live with over the long haul and not feel like I am missing anything.
