Can you actually shred away those bulges with a plan that fills you up? Yes, says Dr. Ian Smith. He is the author of "The Shred Diet Cookbook" (click for details) and "Super Shred: The Big Results Diet: 4 Weeks, 20 Pounds, Lose It Faster!"
To show how the plan works, Dr. Ian introduced a man named Stephen on a recent episode of "The Doctors." Suffering from sugar addiction, Stephen drank three to four gallons of Southern-style sweet tea a day topped by sugary sodas.
Prior to trying the original Shred diet, Stephen weighed 380 pounds. In addition to his obesity, he suffered from chronic pain. Then he decided to follow the weight loss program in "Shred: The Revolutionary Diet: 6 Weeks 4 Inches 2 Sizes."
Using the diet, Stephen lost 133 pounds in a year. "I don't care how big you are. It's doable," he confirmed.
With another 20 to 30 pounds to go, Stephen is now ready for the weight loss plan detailed in Dr. Ian's book "Super Shred: The Big Results Diet: 4 Weeks 20 Pounds Lose It Faster." What's the difference?
The Super Shred is a concentrated, short-term weight loss plan for someone who has hit a plateau or wants to jump-start a diet. The principles include calorie disruption (every day you eat different calorie amounts), sliding nutrient density (moving from eating meat early in the day to vegetables later on) and frequent meals and snacks.
"Every week is different," Dr. Ian said. "That's the beauty of Super Shred."
