From the Inside Flap:

You have abs.
Yes, you.

And in just six weeks,
they're going to show.

The lean, hard stomach everyone wants is within your grasp-and The Abs Diet will help you achieve it.
In survey after survey, men and women say a lean, muscular abdomen is the ultimate symbol of sex appeal. And in study after study, researchers found that getting a firm, flat stomach is the single most significant step you can take to stay healthy for life. It's simple: To look better, to feel better, to live better, The Abs Diet is for you!
The Abs Diet is not a gimmick. It doesn't bury you in measuring, calculating, counting, or hard-to-understand phases. It lets you enjoy the foods you crave. It's not low-carb, low-fat, or low-anything-else. It's just a smart, sensible, healthy plan that will give you the body you want in weeks. And you'll never feel hungry, restricted, or deprived.
How is this possible? Research at top medical schools has shown time and time again that the best way to maintain a fit physique is to eat more food, not less.
The Abs Diet will show you how to eat to keep your body's natural fat burners stoked at all times so you burn fat and build muscle all day, every day-even when you sleep.
In these pages, you'll learn about the 12 Powerfoods that should become the staples of your diet. (Hint: Steak and strawberries are both in the mix.) You'll discover the two hidden dietary killers that could be poisoning you right now. You'll find out why 95 percent of all diets fail-and why The Abs Diet is different.

And you'll enjoy some of the simplest, most satisfying meals ever created.
The Abs Diet is the best, last, and only diet and nutrition plan you will ever need.
How do I know? Well, I'm the editor-in-chief of Men's Health, the world's largest men's magazine. I eat the latest health information for breakfast, I pour over how to make your body better for lunch, and I want to tell you about it over dinner.
I've got quite a story to tell-about how low-carb diets are making you fat, about how the food industry is putting secret fat bombs in your favorite foods, and about how you can fight back.
So how about joining me for a six-pack? Yours.

From the Back Cover:

"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. Katz, M.D., director of medical studies in public health at Yale University School of Medicine and director of the Yale Prevention Research Center

Whether you want to change your body to improve your health, your looks, your athletic performance, or your sex appeal, The Abs Diet offers you a simple promise: If you follow this plan, you will transform your body so that you can accomplish each and every one of those goals. As a bonus, The Abs Diet will do something more than just enhance your life-The Abs Diet is going to save it. In addition, just look at what you'll gain:
o A fitter, healthier, sexier body. (Both women and men rate a flat stomach as the most appealing muscle group.)

o A longer, healthier life. (The right diet can fight cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, and more.)
o A better sex life. (Learn the diet-and-
exercise prescription for total sexcellence.)
