For years — or maybe for all your life — you’ve probably had one notion about what dieting needs to be. Starve yourself like a supermodel, sweat on the treadmill, and lose weight. In reality, those could be the very reasons you can’t lose fat. If you’re restricted in what you eat, you’ll eventually act like a rebellious teen and break the rules. And if the only exercise you do is the aerobic kind, sure, you’ll burn calories, but you won’t do anything to fire up your body’s long-lasting fat-burner — your metabolism.
That’s why this eating and exercise plan — which I call The Abs Diet — is different and especially suited to women, whether you want to tighten your tummy, slim down your thighs and butt, or gain precious energy.
The meal plan isn’t about deprivation; it’s about building your diet around healthy sources of protein, fiber, and other nutrients that help you burn fat. And the exercise plan focuses not on burning calories, but on building lean muscle, which exponentially speeds up the fat-burning process.
Whether you want to change your body to improve your health, looks, fitness, sex appeal — or just feel better about yourself all over — this plan offers you a simple promise: It can transform your body so you can accomplish all of those goals. And still have the energy you need to make each day a good one.
Principles of the abs diet
Most people who are embarking on a new mission begin with one fundamental question: When do we eat? Good question. Most diets are all about what foods you’ll cut out. This one is all about what you’ll include. And that’s good news, because if you want to emerge on the other side of this plan with a new body, you must have the flexibility and freedom to keep yourself from getting hungry, and the knowledge that you can eat well no matter what.
