I'm not cutting, but i was just curious what everyone thought about the "Abs Diet." Seems pretty sensible. Built around lean meat, whole grains, almonds/nuts, vegetables, whey, legumes, berries and low-fat dairy.
Never heard of it.
As long as it puts you into caloric deficit, you'll notice results.
"It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"
"Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
"Bah. You know I hate poor people."
Its in Men's Health magazine.
A- almonds & nuts
B- beans and legumes
S- spinach and green veg
I- instant oatmeal
T- turkey and other lean meats
P- peanut butter
O- olive oil
W- whole grains

I dunno about he magazine though, it makes you feel if you dont have a ripped six pack, you are a fat piece of **** that should die in a fire.

Sounds like a bunch of carbs. Guess the theory is that you'll be burning more in cardio than you'll be getting from eating carb-loaded stuff like oatmeal, dairy (tons of sugar), grains, etc.. ?
I'd say do some variation CKD. Worked wonders for me.
I like the foods
so can i eat unlimited quantities of the above mentioned foods?
somewhat what I eat...
No, the diet says that you center your meals around the above food, and youll lose weight, they say don't count calories it will make you go crazy. Its a newbie style weight loss diet, but if youv'e ever read the "AB's diet message board" most who try it end up gaining.

So you don't wanna get big, do you?
"If your arm measurement is currently 13 inches, you are worrying about the wrong things. Quit comparing to others, quit worrying about little details, get your ass in the gym, work as hard as you can, then go eat something. Repeat until huge." - Paul Stagg
"There is no miracle "look good" diet/pill other than determination and commitment" - geoffgarcia
"Freaking lift to get bigger, or stronger, or better at your damn sport, and quit worrying about weather or not your arm is 16 inches or 16.2 inches." - Paul Stagg
"If you want to look like Brad Pitt go run a marathon or something." - Severed Ties
I eat all of those foods, cept for the berries and veggies. There has to be more to the abs diet than just "eat only these foods."
yea that's right, be jealous
Main staple of diet: Do tons of fxcking cardio.
yeah another staple is circuit training 3x's a week, HIIT (high intensity interval training), and 5x's abs exercises a week. The diet present alot of info without science, so you have a bunch of new lifter drinking whey thinking it will "cut their waist lines" and pump them up. Besides, as far as im concerned, no one who isn't experienced can guestimate there diet and lose weight, you have to count, weigh, and record at some point to be certain of a deficit. (unless your starving yourself)
I read the book a few months ago and thought about it. I tried the smoothie recipes, they are good, but I can't imagine losing weight drinking those things.
Yes, lemme know how it goes!Originally Posted by ryuage
