I haven't heard about this diet and looked up their website. Since they want to sell the book, they don't tell you much about the secret behind this diet. But I did see a few things that I have read on diet.com as well:

" We should be grazing on modest amounts of good food throughout the day, the way nature intended.
The Abs Diet encourages you to focus on (not restrict yourself to) a generous market basket of food types—the Abs Diet Power 12—to fulfill your core nutritional needs.
Include two or three of these foods in each of your three major meals and at least one of them in each of your three snacks.
Diversify your food at every meal to get a combination of protein, carbohydrates, and fat.
Make sure you sneak a little bit of protein into each snack. "

I believe more and more in the importance of eating 6 small balanced "meals" per day, with good fats found in salmon, olive oil, peanuts, avocados etc. Body and brain just need this. Protein (soy shake, tuna, salmon) and carbs (fruit, oats, sprouted grain & seed bread) are just as important.

Good luck.

Christa

Great post, Christa!!! I also get some of my protein from lean meats...yes, even beef and pork.
