OK so let's get started and look at the Truth About Abs program itself.
The Truth About Abs program comes as an e-book, and not a physical product. This means you simply download it to your computer to read or print out, allowing you to access the product instantly. This was great for me as I could get started straight away whilst at my most motivated, without any tedious wait for the post to arrive.
The author is certified nutrition specialist and certified personal trainer Mike Geary, who has also authored other books including 'The Fat Burning Kitchen'. He also contributes to Muscle & Fitness, and Oxygen magazines, holds a science degree, and is considered one of the more accomplished online fitness authors. These solid credentials were something I considered important. As you are no doubt aware, there are many so called 'experts' on the Internet, but knowing Mike's background gave me that bit extra confidence before I committed to buy.
The Truth About Abs itself, has been sold to over 263,000 people in over 154 countries. Mike also runs an online fitness newsletter with in excess of 710,000 subscribers. Now I don't know if you are anything like me, but I like numbers, and I like word of mouth. When a product is good enough to have reached this size of audience, and have that many subscribers to its newsletter, it tells me there is something good here.
If like I did, you currently fear that Truth About Abs program may not be for you because lets say you feel too old to exercise, or maybe you feel you don't want to change your body too dramatically. Then let me alleviate those fears now. In the very first page you are told that this program is a one size fits all. That is, it doesn't matter if you are male or female, old or young, that the concepts you are taught work for everyone. I know one of my concerns, being female, was that I didn't want to develop big muscles, just muscle definition and simple toning. However the ebook guides you on adjusting exercises to the level appropriate to you. This has worked for me as I now have nicely defined abs, upper arms and legs not the dreaded muscle bulk.
Another issue that is dealt with early on in the ebook is the need for exercise equipment. Let me tell you now, all I had at the start was a stability ball and a set of dumbbell's and I got through the exercises fine. I was initially worried that I would have to go out and spend a fortune, but this is absolutely not necessary. The author, Mike Geary, has even included a full body work out routine within the ebook that requires no equipment whatsoever.Yes of course, having access to a wide range of gym equipment, or access to a gym is handy, but definitely not necessary.
Whilst on the subject of the gym, what was great for me also was that these exercises are adapted for use in the home. If I'd have had to go to a gym then I would never have succeeded for two reasons. The first was that being the size I was, I would not have had the confidence to step foot inside a gym. Could there be a more intimidating place? And secondly the cost would have been too prohibitive. I simply could not have afforded a gym membership.
What I particularly liked about the Truth About Abs program is that it is divided into two parts. The first addresses workouts and the second goes into detail about diet. This makes the truth about abs program easy to follow, and clear to understand. Both the exercise routines and the diet must be followed in conjunction with one another, as the whole aim of the program is to reduce body fat sufficiently so that your abs become clearly visible. Don't let the title of this ebook mislead you however, the program is focused on overall body fat loss, not just the abs. Its just that its tailored to lower your body fat sufficiently so that your abs become more pronounced.
The diet section is given a lot of focus which I felt was really useful, as I think this area can often cause people the most confusion. You are given diet plans that you can adapt and follow to suit your requirements. The foods listed within the diet plans are all accessible from your local supermarket, no fancy or far-out ingredients, and nothing requires too much cooking or preparation. Handy if like me, you can't cook, or if you are time poor.
Mike Geary is realistic about your lifestyle. He admits he is human, and likes to enjoy himself at the weekend and have a drink like everyone else. He suggests drinking alcohol is fine, but to get those ripped abs, quantities need to be moderated. I liked this. I liked that he does not dictate any restrictions. You now how it is, the minute you are told you can't have something you immediately want it.
If like me, and about everyone else on the planet you are time poor, and worried about fitting the exercises in to your normal daily routine, then don't worry. The abs exercises are no more than 10 minutes long, and only have to be be performed 2 to 3 times a week.
Another advantage with the short exercise routines is that I find they don't become a chore. The exercise routines are also given levels, starting at level 1, progressing to level 8, which its a great motivator when you find your current level no longer challenges you and your going onto the next level
Another strength I feel the ebook has, and which I particularly liked, is that there is little boring cardio with the Truth About Abs program. Cardio is limited to the bare minimum.
As well as ab exercises, the program includes complete full body work out routines. These go from beginner to intermediate to advanced, so you can just choose one suitable to your level and progress from there.
You are allowed, no in fact you are actively encouraged, to overeat one day a week. This really helped me, especially if I was feeling a bit low. I would make my binge day a Saturday. It was a great pick me up, and actually helped me lose more weight. Can you believe that?
The program also actively encourages you to eat several meals a day, so I rarely ever felt like I was starving myself like I have on other diets. I have tried diets in the past were I have been left dizzy from hunger, and felt like I could barely put one foot in front of the other, I was so weak. I never experienced any of this whilst following this program
Well I hope this has given you a bit more of an insight into the Truth About Abs program, and helps you make a more informed decision about whether the program is right for you.

As I have said previously the Truth About Abs has changed my life completely. And its newsletter continues to help me control my weight.
What has been so amazing about this program, is that...... it's not rocket science, ......it's not re-inventing the wheel. It just uses Mike Geary's skill, expertise and years of experience to create something that can turn your life around.
There is no Truth About Abs scam - from experience I can say that this product really works.
However if I had a criticism of the program.....and as consumers we always have criticisms, it is that the exercises are demonstrated as photographs within the ebook. My suggestion would be to create a downloadable video so that you can watch the exercises in action. That said, it never prevented me from following any workout routine, the exercises are well described and easy to understand, and the associated description of each exercise is very detailed.
A video would just have been the icing on the low fat cake!

The number 1 thing that makes theTruth About Abs pdf the number 1 guide for weight loss is Mike Geary.
Mike is the author of this book and he is the perfect person to listen to.
Mike's credentials are second to none, and he understands what people want from a weight loss program, he understands their concerns and makes sure he has done his darnest to fulfil these in the Truth About Abs pdf.
However I am going to address some of the worries you might have right now.
I guess some of you will be thinking that the program wont work for you, that you've tried so many different diets before that haven't worked, that this one isn't going to be any different and I can understand that., I felt some of that too. Friends especially, made me feel bad, as they would say 'oh Jodie, not ANOTHER diet'. But let me assure you this one works. I am living proof. What makes this weight loss program so different is that it is not just your diet or exercise that is the focus, but both of those things together. Also Mike takes a completely different tack in how he approaches exercise by not demanding hours of boring cardio, by not demanding a thousand sit ups. In fact, there are no sit ups throughout the whole of the exercise program. The suggested meals are tasty and made from everyday foods, and no need to starve yourself. The program does not really hold with counting calories, it's more about eating healthily, and this makes it easy for the weight to stay off.
In short, and I don't want to sound brutal (I've been in your shoes after all), the only person who can allow this program to fail is you, by not following what you are guided to do. Follow the program and the weight will come off like no other diet you have tried before.
Read Mikes credential's again. This guy knows his stuff and is more than happy to share how he got a great body. He teaches you everything differently from what all the other so-called 'experts' say and he gets results.
Just read the following testimonials
Leith Carnie from Australia
"...I was running regularly and working out sometimes, but I was still getting fatter... Everything changed when I started your truth about abs program..."
Stephanie Hurst from Tulia, Texas
"...I went from a size 14 to a 5. Weight wise I was around 190 lbs when I started and now I am 120 lbs... It’s been a total lifestyle change..."
Jennifer M., Mount Laurel, NJ
"...and working on my core muscles, I noticed, in as little as 2 weeks, that my body had changed for the better..."
Danny Darnall, Elizabethtown, Kentucky
"...I've been on your suggested lean muscle diet in your book for 3 weeks now and am starting to lose a decent amount of the fat around my waist..."
If ever you are struggling with the program Mike offers support via email. I have tested this for the purposes of this blog, and I can confirm that I got a fast responsive from the team, that is within an hour. I don't think anyone can complain at that.
Another concern you may have is that your weight loss may not be quick enough. The Truth About Abs pdf is designed so that you loose no more than one to two pounds a week,. This is considered the safest amount to lose each week to prevent stretch marks and loose skin. You initial weight loss may be quicker than this, depending on how overweight you are, but it should level off around one to two pounds a week, providing you follow the program accurately.
Do you worry you have limited time and will not be able to give the program adequate attention? This too was a worry of mine, until I realized that I had to be honest with myself and ask what importance I was going to put on my health, my well being, and my appearance. There is no doubt if you buy the Truth About Abs pdf then you need to give it a certain degree of commitment. However the advantage this program has is that the exercises can be done from home, and take 7 to 10 minutes, and are only required be done 2 to 3 times a week. You could opt to do the full body workout which will take longer, but still can be done in less than an hour. As far as diet is concerned the pdf contains meals that are both quick and easy to prepare.
If you are worried that the program may offer a fad diet. Then let me tell you that the diet is completely healthy. In fact, the focus is more on healthy eating than say cutting out fat, or cutting out carbs and calories. It is based nutritional strategies that will actually have you enjoying food again and getting and staying lean for life.
Lastly are you worried the program may just not be for you?
With a 60 day guarantee you really have nothing to lose in trying the Truth About Abs pdf. So time to make a choice, are you going to keep living life in the slow lane? Or are you going to take action now and get the life you really want and that you know you deserve?
