I do not believe this is an absolute rule. It has been dis-proven and "qualified" many times. Good food leads to "growth".
Regarding ab exercises, different plank variations for timed sets, hanging leg raises, lat pull down sit-ups, reverse crunches, dragon flyes, some kettleball work i believe, overhead squats, pallof press, cable wood chops, bar roll outs are all good exercises IMO
