Have you ever wondered how Rachael Ray stays in such great shape despite a career devoted to whipping up fabulous food? She revealed her secret on her show Thursday: Rachael and her husband John go to the gym every morning for an hour-long workout. So Dr. Ian Smith dished with her about a better approach: High-intensity interval training (HIIT).

Dr. Smith is author of "Shred: The Revolutionary Diet: 6 Weeks 4 Inches 2 Sizes" and "Super Shred: The Big Results Diet: 4 Weeks 20 Pounds Lose It Faster!" (click for details). And his theories on what really work for weight loss are similar to his diet philosophy: You can turbo-charge your results by using your time wisely.

The interval style of training (high intensity followed by low intensity in the same workout) allows you to keep burning calories for up to 24 hours after you finish the workout, says Dr. Smith.

But when it comes to shredding fat, diet makes the difference. The keys to Dr. Smith's Shred diet:

  • Train your tummy to eat less food
  • Optimize your metabolism with calorie control and food choices
  • Learn to enjoy healthy foods

Dr. Smith emphasizes that his diet uses cycles and phases to take off the pounds quickly and safely:

  • Foundation, with four meals and three snacks
  • Accelerate, to supercharge weight loss
  • Shape, to provide "calorie confusion"
  • Tenacious, the final phase for reaching goal
