When you eat the 12 Abs DietPowerfoods and their many relatives, you’ll stay healthy and feel full and satisfied. Plus, the most energy-efficient foods are almost like doormen at a nightclub: They’re not going to let any of the riffraff in without your approval.
Of course, that doesn’t give you license to speed down the road of monstrous portions. Most of us claim that we watch what we eat, but most of us don’t have a clue when we’re drinking alcohol. A US Department of Agriculture study asked people what they ate, then checked it against reality. The truth: People eat twice the grains, fats, and sweets that they estimate.
Stay on Portion Patrol If you eat six well-balanced meals, your body will regulate portions through things like fiber, protein, and the sheer volume of the smoothies. That said, it’s always wise—and especially in the beginning of the plan, when you’re most vulnerable and adjusting to a new way of eating—to focus on portion control by limiting the servings of some foods, especially the ones with fat (like peanut butter) and carbohydrates (like rice or bread).
We’ll always prescribe healthy portions in your meal plan, but if you’re eating out, or find yourself in a buffet line, keep this rule in mind: Stick to one to two servings per food group and keep the total contents of each meal contained to the diameter of your plate. A height restriction is in effect.
Know What to Drink—And What Not To We drink beer. We drink wine. We like to drink beer and wine, gin and tonics on a hot summer day, and a lot of other things. There are health benefits to having one or two drinks a day, but there are many ways that alcohol can get you into trouble.
Most important, alcohol—just like soda—adds calories that you don’t need right now. These calories are empty calories because they don’t actually help make you full or decrease the amount of food you’ll eat.
In fact, alcohol makes you eat more and encourages your body to burn less fat. When Swiss researchers gave eight healthy people enough alcohol to exceed their daily calorie requirements by 25 percent (five beers for someone who eats 3,000 calories a day), they found that booze actually impaired their ability to burn fat by as much as 36 percent.
Booze also makes you store fat. Your body sees alcohol as a poison and tries to get rid of it. So your liver stops processing all other calories until it has dealt with the alcohol. Anything else you eat while you’re drinking most likely will end up as fat. In some more indirect ways, alcohol can inhibit your body’s production of hormones that help burn fat and build muscle.
Don’t Skimp on the Best Liquid Asset We hate to tell you to drink water, but drinking about eight glasses a day has a lot of benefits. It helps keep you satiated. (A lot of times what we all interpret as hunger is really thirst.) Water flushes the waste products your body makes when it breaks down fat for energy or when it processes protein.
You also need water to transport nutrients to your muscles, help digest food, and keep your metabolism clicking. If you’re serious about shedding belly flab, stay away from alcohol for the 6-week Abs Diet Quickstart plan. At the least, limit yourself to two or three alcoholic drinks per week. The best drinks you can have are fat-free, 1 percent, or 2 percent milk; water; and green tea (or, if you must, two glasses of diet soda a day).
Turkey This clucker has the fewest calories per ounce of any animal protein. Like dairy, it contains the amino acid leucine, which may play a role in preserving muscle mass during weight loss, keeping metabolism running at full speed. Protein is also more satiating than fat or carbs—so you’re less likely to overeat.
Peanuts Ironically, this elephant favorite fights weight gain, slows rises in blood sugar, and curbs hunger. One study from Purdue University found that individuals who added 500 calories of peanuts to their diets for 3 weeks experienced almost no change in body weight and a 24 percent drop in triglycerides — blood fats associated with heart disease. Researcher Rick Mattes, Ph.D., says peanuts’ satiating power helps people eat less overall.
Low-Fat Yogurt Plain, low-fat yogurt is one of the best sources of calcium—a mineral that may fight fat. According to Michael B. Zemel, Ph.D., director of the Nutrition Institute at the of Tennessee, not getting enough calcium triggers the release of calcitriol, a hormone that causes us to store fat, whereas meeting our daily calcium needs helps us burn fat more efficiently. Like turkey, yogurt and other dairy foods are leading sources of leucine, which also helps fight fat.
Breakfast Cereal By boosting fiber and providing fewer calories from fat than other popular breakfasts (bacon and eggs, anyone?), ready-to-eat cereal can help you fill up—and slim down. Study from the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that women who ate cereal were 30 percent less likely to be overweight than those who ate other breakfast foods. To get the most bang for your breakfast buck, choose fiber-rich (aim for 5 grams per serving), low-fat cereals like Kashi Heart to Heart. For more top brefast cereals, seeWH’s Guide to the Healthiest Cereals.
Enova Oil Enova — made from soy and canola oils — is made of diglycerides, a type of fat that’s metabolized differently from triglycerides (found in other oils—even olive) and so not stored as fat as easily. In a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, dieters who used Enova lost more weight than those who used other oils.
Berries You probably know that fiber is the magic bullet of weight loss. It keeps you satisfied throughout the day—and away from the fridge. But you may not know that berries are an excellent roughage source. Raspberries are the fiber queens with 8 grams per cup. Blackberries come in a close second with 7.4 grams, and blueberries have 3.5 grams.
The Abs Diet revolves around a dozen delicious, convenient foods called the Abs Diet Powerfoods. All you need to do is eat the acronym: Almonds and other nuts, Beans and other legumes, Spinach and other green vegetables, Dairy (low-fat), Instant oatmeal, Eggs, Turkey and other lean meats, Peanut butter,Olive oil, Whole-grain breads and cereals, Extra-protein (whey) powder,Raspberries and other berries.
Yup, you read that right: You get to eat healthy protein, healthy fats, healthy carbs—there’s hardly anything you need to give up on this program. Ice cream? Sure, have it. Grilled cheese sandwiches? Yup. They’re in.
These are among the best sources of protein, fiber, and all the other ingredients and nutrients that help fight fat. In fact, they’re so good for you that they’ll just about single-handedly exchange your fat for a toned, lean body andsexy abs. You can base entire meals and snacks around them, but you don’t have to. Just be sure to follow these simple rules.
*Incorporate two or three of these foods into each of your meals and at least one of them into each snack.
* Diversify your food at every meal to get a combination of protein, carbohydrates, and fat. * Sneak a little protein into each snack.
A - Almonds and other nuts (with skins intact) Superpowers Builds muscle, reduces cravings Fights Obesity, heart disease, muscle loss, wrinkles, cancer, high blood pressure (no more the 12) (12 is the serving size) B - Beans and legumes Superpowers Builds muscle, helps burn fat, regulates digestion Fights Obesity, colon cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure (1/4 cup) S - Spinach and other green vegetables Superpowers Neutralizes free radicals, molecules that accelerate the aging process Fights Cancer, heart disease, stroke, obesity, osteoporosis (1-2 cups per meal)
D - Dairy products (fat-free or low-fat milk, yogurt, cheese) Superpowers Builds strong bones, fires up weight loss Fights Osteoporosis, obesity, high blood pressure, cancer (1-2 times a day 8oz is one serving) I - Instant oatmeal (unsweetened, unflavored) Superpowers Boosts energy, reduces cholesterol, maintains blood sugar levels Fights Heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, obesity
(1/4 to 1/8 cup is a serving)
E - Eggs Superpowers Builds muscle, burns fat Fights Obesity (2egg whties one egg) T - Turkey and other lean meats Superpowers Builds muscle, strengthens immune system Fights Obesity, various diseases (4oz) P - Peanut butter Superpowers Boosts testosterone, builds muscle, burns fat Fights Obesity, muscle loss, wrinkles, cardiovascular disease (2 tbsp) O - Olive oil Superpowers Lowers cholesterol, boosts immune system Fights Obesity, cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure (1tbsp) W - Whole-grain breads and cereals Superpowers Prevents body from storing fat Fights Obesity, cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease (1 piece of bread is a serving or what ever the cereal box says) E - Extra-protein (whey) powder Superpowers Builds muscle, burns fat Fights Obesity
(read the label but do not eat over 40g of protein)
R - Raspberries and other berries Superpowers Protects heart; enhances eyesight; improves balance, coordination, and short-term memory; prevents cravings Fights Heart disease, cancer, obesity
Key concept: “energy balance”—that is, how many calories you’re burning versus how many you’re taking in. Researchers at Georgia State University found that if you keep your hourly surplus or deficit within 300 to 500 calories at all times, you will best be able to lose fat and add lean muscle mass. If you eat only three squares a day, you’re creating energy imbalances: Between meals, you’re burning more calories than you’re taking in; at mealtimes, you’re consuming more than you’re burning. So alternate larger meals with smaller snacks and eat every 2 to 3 hours. It will keep you full and satisfied, which reduces the likelihood of a diet-destroying binge.
3. Guideline - Drink smoothies on a regular basis.
Smoothies—blended mixtures of milk, low-fat yogurt, whey protein powder, ice, and other good stuff from the Powerfoods list — can act as meal substitutes and potent snacks. They require little time; berries, flavored whey powder, or peanut butter will satisfy your sweet tooth; and their thickness takes up space in your stomach. So get a blender and whip up an 8-ounce smoothie for breakfastor have one before or after your workout.
By eating the 12 Powerfoods and their many relatives, the foods themselves will, in a way, count your calories for you. They’ll keep you healthy and satisfied. Plus, the most energy-efficient foods are almost like bouncers at a nightclub: They’re not going to let any of the riffraff in without your approval. That said, it’s always wise — especially in the beginning, when you’re most vulnerable and adjusting to a new way of eating — to focus on portion control by limiting the servings of some foods, particularly the ones with fat (like peanut butter) and carbohydrates (like rice or bread). A good rule: Stick to one or two servings per food group and confine the total contents of each meal to the diameter of your plate.
There are many ways that alcohol can get you into trouble. It doesn’t make you feel full or decrease the amount of food you consume. In fact, alcohol encourages your body to burn up to 36 percent less fat and makes you store more of the fat you eat. And it can inhibit your body’s production of hormones that help burn fat and build muscle. If you can’t pass up your pinot, limit yourself to two or three alcoholic drinks a week. Water may not be as exciting as ‘Weiser, but drinking about eight glasses of the clear stuff a day has a lot of benefits. It helps keep you satiated (often what we interpret as hunger is ?really thirst). It flushes the waste products your body makes when it breaks down fat for energy or when it processes protein. And it transports nutrients to your muscles to keep your metabolism clicking. Otherwise, the best drinks you can have are low-fat milk and green tea (or, if you must, two glasses of diet soda a day).
6. Guideline - For one meal a week, forget the first five guidelines.
We would never advocate cheating on your spouse or your taxes. But we want you to cheat on this diet. Take one meal during the week and forget everything about good carbohydrates and good fats. Have half a pizza, a Kit Kat, Alfredo sauce, or whatever it is you miss the most. Think of this cheat meal as the carrot at the end of a good week of eating. Enjoy the gluttony — and please, don’t take “carrot” literally.
Extra Credit Turbocharge the six Abs Diet guidelines by establishing these three simple habits of lean and healthy eating. 1. Prepare your own meals. As your number of home-cooked meals increases, your fast-food visits decrease. By cooking at home using the recipes in the next chapter, you’ll automatically avoid huge restaurant portions and calorie overload. USDA scientists found that people eat about 500 calories more a day when they consume food made outside the home.
2. Eliminate added sugars. ”This is the simplest way to clean up any diet,” says Jonny Bowden, PhD, the author of The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth. Avoid putting sugar in anything you eat. And stay away from soda, baked goods, fruit drinks, and sugary breakfast cereals. USDA researchers say 82 percent of our added sugar can be attributed to those foods.
3. Don’t fear fat. Fats found in meat, dairy, avocados, olive oil, and nuts are filling and add flavor to meals, which will help you avoid feeling deprived, says nutritionist Alan Aragon, MS. For a rule of thumb, shoot for half a gram of fat for every pound of your desired body weight.
Chris Hemsworth reportedly put on 20 pounds for this role in Thor.
He did this by not only focusing on his workouts, but also putting in the work outside workouts. His diet was in line and he made sure he was sleeping enough every night.
Diet is explained in the next section, but as far as the importance of sleep goes, hormones that build muscle and burn fat (among other things) are produced during sleep, and sleep is necessary for normal hormones throughout the day.
Sleep enough, keep your hormones in line.
Onto the Chris Hemsworth Workout.
Chris Hemsworth Workout was full of compound exercises that focused on putting on mass.
Compound exercises are simply exercises that recruit plenty of muscle fibers to work together synergistically, versus isolation training which only recruits muscle fibers (sort of ) in specific areas.
Common and effective compound exercises include:
Deadlift Squat Front Squat Lunge Sprints
Chest Press Cable Chest Press Bench Press Push Up
Pull Up Inverse Row Dumbbell Row Virtually any rowing movement
Push Press One Arm Press
Compound exercises usually deliver better results and more functionality, but also require more attention to form and safety, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
As long as you look the exercises up and maintain form throughout, the muscle you add will be well worth the effort you put in.

Bikini season is heating up and there’s nothing worse than feeling self-conscious when you’re on the beach. I’ve shared some great workouts that will get your ass in gear and we’ve talked about eating right, but I wanted to give you some more concrete examples of what a few days of eating right can look like:
Day 1 Breakfast – Protein shake Lunch – Chicken Caesar salad Dinner – Sashimi (four pieces of salmon, four pieces of white tuna) and miso soup. You can throw some edamame in there too!
Day 2 Breakfast – Bowl of Smart Start cereal with skim milk and fruit Lunch – Low-sodium chicken soup (two hundred calorie can) Dinner – Grilled chicken, brown rice, and a green veggie like grilled asparagus or zucchini
Day 3 Breakfast – Egg white omelet with broccoli, tomato, and onion (or whatever veggie you like) Lunch – Turkey sandwich: turkey, tomato, lettuce on wheat (sorry, no mayo!) Dinner – Turkey meatballs, steamed brown rice, cucumber salad (yum!)
If you get hungry, reach for one of these tasty and healthy snacks:
• Low-fat granola bar • Two hundred calorie pack snacks like pretzels or crackers • String cheese • Almonds (just a handful!)
You can also always have fresh fruit to satisfy your sweet tooth.
If you’re eating like this, combined with a good workout routine, you’ll be seeing results in no time.
