Zinczenko has put together an easy way to remember all the healthy foods in one place. The Abs Diet didn't really tell me a lot of stuff I didn't already know, but it has given me a structure to follow. Zinczenko's advice centers on what he calls "powerfoods", eating 6 meals a day incorporating them, letting the body do its own portion control and building muscle. He gives space for one cheat meal a week. He also does a great job simplifying everything by giving tons of easy recipes and a nifty ...more

The author, David Zinczenko, has a certain flair while delivering his healthy message. I learned a few new things, but I'm baffled by no mention whatsoever of carbohydrates being a no-no. (I know there are good carbs.) I like THIS guide since it offers menu choices, actual recipes, and out-to-dinner guides. Looks like I'll be shopping at Trader Joe's-that's a safe bet for healthy food. I think anyone would like it. It's another look at success stories AND a very manageable plan.

Some good information but not very organized in order to find specific things that you'd want to learn or remember throughout the book. Just seems scattered.

The nutritional information in this book is great. It gets real about what's good to eat and what's not good. The thing I liked most about it is that it encourages eating fatty foods as longs as they are the right kinds of fat (poly & mono - unsaturated) because these foods are actually very healthy. It does warn to watch the portions, though, and also gives info about several main-stream restaurants...what's the most healthy and least healthy dish from each one.
really good recipes. we've tried three of the suppers and two out of the three were a big hit with my whole family and that is saying something! also we are big fans of the smoothies and make them all the time.
For an eating plan designed to help you lose the fat to enable you to build 6-pack abs, I found it interesting that his smoothiee recipes were made with ice cream. Now, I like that idea!!
This book is amazing! I don't know if it will actually help me lose weight yet, but I love the philosophy and I definitely feel better and am making better choices when it comes to food.

Interesting take on food. I'm not planning on doing the actual diet but I did find the books very informative regarding good nutrition for weight loss.
Sandy Garcia
Great informational book. It teaches you to make better food choices when buying groceries and when eating out.
Full of helpful hints, especially from a nutritional standpoint. The 12 Powerfoods work and are delicious.
