The Abs Diet: The Six-Week Plan to Flatten Your Stomach and Keep You Lean for Life

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.

    "REALLY NEEDS THE CORRECT PDF"
    Any additional comments?

    Pretty upset the correct PDF isn't downloadable. Instead it has the PDF for the Abs Diet Personal Trainer.

    "Waste of time"

    Why such high ratings? I think these reviewers are related to the authors in some way. Most of this audiobook is telling you how good it is and what it is going to tell you. This is a book from the owners of Men's Health magazine,which is a good magazine, but this tells you nothing new and endless rants about themselves and how bad other diets are. In the audiobook its hard to fast forward to the helpful bits(about 10 mins worth). Maybe in print you can just flip through the pages. Basically its eat protein, exercise more, frequent meals .... heard it before? Yep, of course you have.

    "Great information!"

    This will get you motivated to change your lifestyle & make you realize that proper nutrition can also be "fast food" if you know what to look for. The diet information in this book will have you eating more than you can imagine & the the workouts will leave you wondering why you don't have to buy a new pair of running shoes every other month. All I can say is this, I am real & I stuck to the plan with amazing results. This book has opened my eyes to real proper nutrition and exercise.

    "It helped me"

    Exercise more and eat the right food. It seems sensible and has helped me get in shape. Audio, is not the optimal format for this kind of book. But I would recommend it.

    Story
    "Where are the exercises?"
    If you could sum up The Abs Diet in three words, what would they be?

    This is a good book. It simplifies the priorities of healthy eating and weight training and talks about protein, calcium, and nutrients you need for good weight loss. The speaker could be a little more animated. But there is only one PDF with the book and it is only meal plans and glycemic index. Where are the exercises that the speaker refers to? Do I have to buy the workout now too? --- a little disgruntled!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    be more animated


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Where is the PDF for exercises???

    "Not much new."
    What would have made The Abs Diet better?

    The information that was presented did not require this much time. Most who did not know would enjoy.

    Story
    "Directed toward MEN but relevant for all"
    Where does The Abs Diet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Useful information.


    What about Eric Conger’s performance did you like?

    Nice voice. Easy listening.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Information is dense at times and easier to absorb in more than one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    The author makes sexualized comments throughout the book. As a woman, I felt like I was overhearing comments a guy would make to another guy in a locker room setting. Besides that weird piece, I liked the book and the information. I will listen to it again and again.

    "Excellent book."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Well-narrated and interesting. Good suggestions which I am following, for example: metabolism remains higher after working out in bursts followed by periods of rest, when compared with a session of steady-state exercise, like jogging at the same pace for the same length of time.

    Also, a person should eat as soon after exercising as possible so that the body doesn't break down its own tissues to build up the muscle. Both the nutrition section and workout section were very good and motivating.


    What other book might you compare The Abs Diet to and why?

    The Zone books by Barry Sears, because of the great discussions on diet and exercise and how they relate to each other.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The one I wrote about above.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. Not that kind of book - I felt informed.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read many books on nutrition and this book compares quite favourably with them.

    "Accompanying PDF files are incomplete"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Abs Diet to be better than the print version?

    for me yes, I'm more of a listener than a reader


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Nutritional facts


    Did Eric Conger do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    As I explained, the accompanying material for the audio book "The Abs Diet" is incomplete. Several times in the audio book, it states that the diet plan and recipe PDF files are included and obtainable as accompanying material at the Audible website. When you click on the PDF link under the book title in "My Library" there are seven (7) PDF files but they are ALL for the exersize plan. Please advise us where or how to obtain the diet plan and recipe section of this book. Thank You,
