The Abs Diet book is obviously a diet for your stomach. However that is
not all the Abs Diet consists of. The theory behind the Abs Diet is that
for every extra 1lb of muscle you gain, your body burns an extra 50 calories
a day. Therefore if you can build 10lbs of muscle, your body will burn an
extra 500 calories a day which is enough for you to lose 1lb a week without
dieting. The diet part of the Abs diet allows you to eat 12 "powerfoods".
The other main part to this diet is exercise, and in the Abs Diet book are
specific exercises that focus on the stomach region with illustrations.
The book includes a 7-day diet plan with detailed information on the 12
powerfoods. These powerfoods consist of almonds and other nuts, beans
and pulses, spinach and other green vegetables, low-fat dairy products,
instant hot oat cereal, eggs, turkey and other lean meats, peanut butter,
olive oil, wholegrain breads and cereals, extra protein powder, and raspberries
and other berries. These powerfoods provide all the vitamins, minerals,
and fiber you need for good health, while at the same time promoting muscle
growth and fat burning. Although it sounds like you can only eat 12 foods,
there is plenty of variety within each food.
Dieting is the main part which makes this plan work, however this plan
also calls for working out 20 minutes a day, three times a week. The workout
is also included in the book.
In this book you will find information on how great abs can improve your
health and sex life, and explanations of health problems. Also included
is a guide to basic nutrition, and success stories.
If you stick to the 7-day diet plan you will lose weight and build your
ab muscles. If you follow the plan expect to lose 12lb. in the first two
weeks and another 5-8lb in the next two weeks. Depending on how much weight
you have to lose will determine how long you will need to be on this diet
to get the stomach of your dreams. It is not a good idea to throw away
this plan after you achieve your goal of perfect abs, why get in great
shape and have great abs if you are just going to throw it all away? In
my opinion Abs Diet book is the best and fastest way to good shape.
