What You Should Know
The Abs Diet is available as a book or DVD and is written by David Zinczenko, the editor-in-chief of Men’s Health magazine. The materials retail for around $30.
The Abs Diet is not a diet supplement or weight loss pill at all, but rather a diet plan. Limiting the dieter to twelve “power foods,” the Abs Diet prescribes a six-week weight loss program. It combines an eating pattern from the “power foods” with regular exercise with weights and crunches. The Abs Diet advertises
The focus of this diet is, as the title suggests, the midsection. The Abs Diet promotes healthier ab muscles as the key to successful abdominal weight loss.
There are no “ingredients” to the Abs Diet, but it does prescribe a list of “power foods” that the dieter must eat.
The Abs Diet emphasizes fat loss around the stomach, one of the most likely places for fat to accumulate. It is primarily written for men, but there is a version written for women as well. Though it may remind some readers of the South Beach or Protein Power diets, Abs Diet proponents claim that there is much more flexibility and variety of foods to eat.
