Native Remedies explains that the primary difference between the Abs Diet and the Abs Diet for Women is that the women's diet has been redesigned to make it easier for women to follow. The primary difference is in the number of recommended calories.
A comparison of U.S. News & World Report's description of the Abs Diet to WebMD's description of the Abs Diet for Women suggests that the diets are practically identical except that women are advised to eat fewer calories per day than men. According to U.S. News & World Report and WebMD, both diets require eating six small meals per day with protein consumed at each meal. Twelve particular "powerfoods" are emphasized, and each meal must contain at least one of the twelve. Sample diet plans suggest that the dieters receive 27 percent of calories from fats, 28 percent from protein and 47 percent from carbohydrates.
