The diet that works faster and forever!

SUPER SHRED

Using the same principles-meal spacing, snacking, meal replacement and diet confusion-that made his SHRED a major #1 bestseller-Dr. Ian Smith has developed what dieters told him they needed: a quick-acting plan that is safe and easy to follow at home, at work, or on the road.

SUPER SHRED

It's a program with four week-long cycles:

--Foundation, when you'll eat four meals and three snacks a day, start shedding pounds and set yourself up for success

--Accelerate, when you'll kick it up and speed up weight loss

--Shape, the toughest week in the program, and the one that will get your body back by keeping it guessing

--Tenacious, a final sprint that cements your improved eating habits and melts off those last stubborn pounds

The SHRED system never leaves you hungry. It's a completely new way to lose weight, stay slender, and feel fantastic about your body, mind and spirit!

Includes more than 50 all-new recipes for meal replacing smoothies and soups!

[CHAPTER 1]  The SUPER SHRED ConceptFor many years I have been asked by tens of thousands of people, “How can I lose weight quickly?” For as long as I can remember, my answer was consistent. “Losing weight too quickly can be dangerous. It’s best to lose it slow and steady so that you can keep it off longer.”Given the relevant science, I always accepted the conventional wisdom of steady weight loss being more beneficial than rapid weight-loss strategies.

Editorial Reviews

I started Shredding twenty days ago. I've lost a total of 10 lbs. I don't miss all the junk food and fast foods I used to eat. I'm never hungry on the Shred diet. This is the lifestyle change I truly needed.
