I've never heard of the Abs Diet. I hope it works for you in weight loss. However, I hope you know that there is no combination of foods, (Diet) that will change the look of your Abs. Only exercise will do that. Diet will lose the weight for you, but it won't build those Abs.
There is one thing about exercise for Abs, it is best is you find a program designed for Ab building. As I understand it, the Abs have three layers of muscle and each layer must be addressed separately and in a specific sequence for best results. I am not an expert, but there are other who will read this and are. I hope they chip in.

Im a three year amateur bodybuilder, and we always say "abs aren't made in the gym, theyre made in the kitchen!"
The tricky thing about abs is the stomach fat. You can work all three layers of ab muscles everyday but you still wont get abs unless you have terrifically low amounts of bodyfat. How much percent im not sure (for females) for guys we'll need at least lower than 10% body fat for a 6 pack.
In other words, an ab diet will be a weight loss diet. Working your obliques and doing crunches, leg raises, while youre losing weight will give you some fine attractive lines on your stomach once the fat is gone. Getting abs isnt about working them hard, its about working hard to lose weight.

And that's the problem. Getting rid of the fat. Particularly if you were obese like me for many years. I am not happy with the fat roll in the gut, (I can pull it in) but then, no one usually is. And I truly doubt I'll get rid of it as I will never get thin enough as my goal is 158, which I think is good for me.

I think I have one hell of a six pack... unfortunately, it's hidden in this shopping bag that I carried around for 30 years! Lost 140 lbs, but working out and waiting patiently for the tummy sag to tighten up. Will it ever?

All good input but what about the Abs Diet plan itself. It provides both a food plan and an exercise plan. Has anyone actually followed those plans and did it work for them?

I think most of us are saying you can't focus on your abs alone for reduction and you have to eat healthy no matter what. If the diet looks good to you, try it and see if you can stick with it. Do the exercises. It can't hurt. And like Drag said... we've probably all got a six pack. Somewhere in there. With all the core exercises I do, I know I've got a six.

as jtung and the rest of you probably know, there is no way to get that 6 pack by doing spot exercises either. you have to do cardio to get rid of fat. you can't just do some sit ups, it won't work.

Agree good abs are a combination of many things. Strong abs also help your back and can sometimes help eliminate back pain. I have a goal of looking good in a bikini by next summer: or at least as good as a 66 year old can look in a one. That means good tight abs. Not making it for this year bought a new one piece. Lots better buying a size 8 this year compared to size 16 last year!

I do a tremendous amount of core/ab strength training. I've had 3 back surgeries and am trying to avoid a 4th by strengthening the muscles in my abs and back. So I do firmly believe that the workouts I've been doing for the past 18 months is helping and though there may not be the "six pack", I've got muscles. I will be doing a bod pod in the next couple of months and will get my percentage of muscles compared to this time last year. Too fat for too long and skin sags. My bikini days are long over.

WOW 3 back surgeries, that's a lot. I would avoid a 4th also if possible.
For me 4 disc cervical fusion, with permanent after affects and chronic SI low back issues since a trampoline mishap when I was about 12. used to work for a doc who was a physiatrist specialist in backs, he pushed exercise, strengthening your core, back and abs.

Someone once commented that I did a lot of ab/core exercises. This is the reason. An ortho doc told me that if I continued losing (185 at the time) and did strength training, it would put off the surgery indefinitely. Chiro also assists with my adjustments. I became obsessed with losing and strength training. And wish I knew then what I know now. I never would have had any surgeries with the exception of the 3rd one where the T9 collapsed and had to have a kyphoplasty. That was as a result of the fall which caused the back damage.

Plateau no more
I think the body does that a lot. Great that you hung in there and was patient. Some people go crazy and do weird things or just give up. But believing in your diet is the main thing
