The New Rules for Getting Ripped

Forget inconvenient diets and three-hour gym sessions. Score the six-pack abs and body you've always wanted by following these better, smarter rules.

One large red pepper—okay, technically a fruit, but generally prepared like a vegetable—has 40 calories and 5 grams of carbs. You do the math.
