Abs Diet

Created by Men's Health editor David Zinczenko, the Abs Diet aims to improve your health, your looks, your athletic performance, even your sex appeal!

A diet plan review of the Abs Diet reveals that it emphasizes twelve Power Foods

  • Almonds and Other Nuts
  • Beans and Legumes
  • Spinach and Other Green Vegetables
  • Dairy (Fat-Free or Low-Fat Milk, Yogurt, Cheese, and Cottage Cheese)
  • Instant Oatmeal (Unsweetened, unflavored)
  • Eggs
  • Turkey and Other Lean Meats (Lean Steak, Chicken, Fish)
  • Peanut Butter (All-Natural, Sugar-Free)
  • Olive Oil
  • Whole-Grain Breads and Cereals
  • Extra-Protein (Whey) Powder
  • Raspberries and Other Berries

Rather than following strict diet meal plans, the Abs Diet recommends that you eat six small meals, approximately two hours apart. Each of the major meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) should contain at least three of the Power Foods, while snacks should each contain at least one.
