"The Abs Diet is a sensible eating and exercise plan, not a fad diet. The Abs Diet Power foods and the Abs Diet Workout are designed to make you fit, healthy, and lean for life. If you want to get on top of your game, this is where you start. Remember: Don't cheat yourself, treat yourself." -The Rock, movie star "The Abs Diet is a must read for anyone who is serious about building a healthy body and changing to a healthy lifestyle. Most diets are based on gimmicks that set you up for failure; this is the first program I have seen that promotes a lifestyle change that anyone can live with." -David R. Pearson, Ph.D., director of the strength-research laboratory at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana "Finally, a diet that's focused on what you can eat, not what you can't! The Abs Diet isn't just about aesthetics, though. You'll look good, but you'll feel great-and you'll succeed at last! The Abs Diet addresses the reality of people's everyday lives and shows them how to improve their health through smart eating and exercise." -Heidi Skolnik, R.D., staff nutritionist for the New York Giants "Clear, crisp, refreshingly sensible, and as entertaining as it is enlightening, The Abs Diet will reward its readers handsomely. There are few 'diet books' that I am willing to endorse; I endorse this one enthusiastically. If you have an abdomen, get this book!" -David L.
