According to the June 2007 issue of Consumer Reports, in a study
rating the diets, The Abs Diet  was rated among the top 5 diet
books. It has a supporting website as well.

This diet plan is very similar to Bill Phillips' Body For
It advises you to eat 5-6 times per day, it focuses on food high in
fiber, avoids any requirement to count calories, and takes advantage of using
soy beans, which have gotten a lot of good press lately.

The book was written by Men's Health editor-in-chief
David Zinczenko, and it's a simple plan for optimum eating and weight training.
Although written more for men (one of the few available), this diet and exercise
plan is perfectly applicable to women, and focuses on revving up one's

for you to lose 1 lb. a week, without dieting.

For 6 weeks you'll fill up on 12 nutrient packed "power
foods" (see list below) that  provide all the vitamins, minerals and
fiber you need for good health, while promoting muscle growth and fat burning.
Added to this, you'll do a 20 minute workout three times per week. The diet
provides an appropriate balance of carbs (50%), protein (20%), and fat (30%).
Recipes are also available.

In the book, there's also a good guide to basic nutrition,
success stories, detailed information about the powerfoods, a 7-day diet plan,
and illustrated exercises.

Following are the 12 "Po...
