I've never heard of the abs diet but I have read in an article here on sparkpeople that focusing your strength training on your abs doesn't really help that area become thinner. It's cardio and burning calories that will help you lose that midsection. Your body will decide where it loses the fat. Sometimes the places that have had the excess fat for the longest time are the places that are hardest to get rid of. First on, last to go. Anyway, like I said, that's just what I've read so I just wanted to share that bit of knowledge with you.
Today I started a new plan from the "abs diet" book by David Zinczenko. My goal is to lose 10lbs by August 12 and I'm focusing on my mid section/abs. I did my measurements today and wasn't happy - BMI -28, Body Fat % 38. The plan includes high fiber, nuts, berries, fruits, veggies, lean meat and cuts things like white bread, rice (recommends long grain or brown), fry foods. Includes a workout regimen. Do you believe this is a healthy plan? Have anyone heard about the abs diet? Any feedback - positive or negative?
