    is milk required in an abs diet??just curious
    Milk, and dairy products in general, should be cornerstones of any healthy diet. They are excellent sources of calcium and protein. If you're lactose-intolerant, well it's a different story...
    For 'an abs diet', you'd better off with skim or at least low-fat milk/yogurt/cheese for its high protein/calorie ratio.
    Also, working out 1-2 times a week as someone mentioned earlier is definitely not optimal; 4-5 times a week with a healthy balance between doing free-weight and cardio/aerobic sports is more like it.

    I actually dropped skim milk and fat free yogurt from my diet as it seems I am mildly allergic to it.

    Be weary of skim milk. A lot of the time the fat that is removed is replaced by sugar. It also goes bad quickly. I've found that 1% is a good compromise.
