Rated 5 out of 5 by from A diet that works. Time will speak to its efficacy, but I'm sure this diet will work like any diet that you follow properly. It is outlined in an easy-to-follow manner and implements a lot of common sense, which is always helpful in staying motivated and on course. I will let you know if it works for me. ; ) Note: I've been half-heartedly following this diet for a little under three weeks and have lost approximately 6 pounds and as many inches. If my job allowed me to have the required 4 meals a day I would surely have met the 12 pound goal at the end of three weeks. UPDATE: I'm down 25 pounds now! www.booksnakereviews.blogspot.com

Extreme Fat Smash DietCHAPTER 1Extreme Fat Smash PhilosophyEXTREME: going to great lengths or beyond normal limits   That's the Merriam-Webster's Dictionary definition of "extreme" and the one I like most when thinking about the core principles of this exciting weight-loss program. Some may see the word "extreme" and cringe because they associate it with pain, while others will want to investigate further because they're curious or experience a rush of adrenaline as their mind immediately prepares itself for an exciting challenge. It's my hope that when people see the words EXTREME FAT SMASH, they will be both curious and ready for a challenge.Most of us travel through life in what I call the safety zone, whether it's always making conservative and predictable career moves or making personal decisions without risk and the possibility of loss. There's nothing wrong with this philosophy for most people. But for someone who wants to achieve greatness and accomplish extraordinary things, living in the safety zone is not going to deliver the desired results. EXTREME FAT SMASH is for people who are determined to reach what they might've considered unthinkable success in a weight-loss journey. The idea is simple: if you want big results, then you'll have to push yourself beyond the normal limits to attain them.EXTREME FAT SMASH is not a fad diet. The science behind the program is not only credible but also well tested. Many of usdiet experts have preached for a long time that it's best to lose weight slowly, because gradual, consistent weight loss increases the likelihood that you will lose more weight and have a greater chance of keeping that weight off. I still hold fast to that viewpoint. So if you're trying to lose 50 to 100 pounds or even more, it's more practical for you to embark on a weight-loss program that will deliver this type of gradual weight loss. You would benefit tremendously from my original FAT SMASH DIET. That 90-day program will guide you to significant weight loss spread over an appropriate amount of time. But if you're trying to lose 10 to 25 pounds in a short period of time, you want to do it in a healthy manner, and you want to keep those pounds off for good, then EXTREME FAT SMASH is the program for you.Many diets promise tremendous weight results in a short period of time, and some of them actually deliver. But the manner in which these results were achieved was often unsafe, medically risky, and short lasting. What I have set about to do is something that millions of dieters have been asking for, yet the experts said it either couldn't be done or shouldn't be attempted. EXTREME FAT SMASH is a plan that will help you reach those quick results, but you'll get them by eating healthy foods and following a specific exercise program that will help condition your heart, muscles, and lungs. You will not be required to take any dangerous weight-loss supplements or eat foods that could eventually prove harmful to your health. Not only will you lose weight on this program, but you will learn the values of nutritionally powerful foods and how to create portion-controlled meals.I would be dishonest if I did not tell you that there will be moments on this diet that you will be discouraged or tired or even ready to throw in the towel. This is completely normal and expected. Why? Because you'll be pushing your mind and body beyond thenormal limits. Here's an exercise to help you find inner resources: stand in front of a mirror and look as deeply as you can into your eyes for 90 seconds. Don't blink, don't move your eyes, blur out everything else in the mirror, and block out all of the noises you hear. Focus only on your eyes. This exercise will teach you how to reach into your soul and find that inner strength that will allow you to continue your march forward even when things seem to be getting tough. What you're looking at in the mirror is your essence, your drive, your determination to make a big change in your life. SOMETIMES WE MUST GO THROUGH DARKNESS TO REACH THE LIGHT.   EXTREME FAT SMASH is a very specific diet, and it must be, because you're asking your body to undergo some rapid changes in a very short period of time. Because the time line is so tight, it's critical that you follow the program as written. It has been thought through and tested to give you your best chance of obtaining optimal results. If you're determined to reach your goal and you're tired of learning the hard way that all of those advertised shortcuts never deliver on their promises, then EXTREME FAT SMASH is the program for you.As you work your way through the three cycles of the program, it's important to remember that you are eating to satisfy hunger, not eating because the food is there or to the point of being stuffed. Your schedule will be set up so more food is always coming soon, so train yourself not to overdo it at any meal or snack!EXTREME FAT SMASH DIET. Copyright © 2007 by Ian K.
