"Super fine." That's what yo-yo dieter Angela declared she felt when Dr. Ian Smith described the "Super Shred Diet" to her on the Friday episode of "The Doctors." We've got the skinny here on how you can lose 20 pounds in four weeks using this approach.

The plan teaches you to space meals to avoid cravings, and also provides you with guidance on portion control. There are three keys to the "Super Shred Diet:" Timing, variety and portion control. A frequently asked question: How does "Super Shred" differ from the original "Shred" diet? Dr. Ian says it's designed for those on a plateau or who want to lose weight quickly before shifting to the "Shred" diet.

Note: A new study supports the safety and effectiveness of a fast weight loss plan such as Super Shred: Find out more by clicking here.

Both books include recipes. Try a sampling, including Dr. Ian's Green Energizer Smoothie, Dr. Ian's Bean Protein Extravaganza and Butternut Squash and Apple Soup, by clicking here.

To tune up your metabolism, says Dr. Smith, you need to learn to eat every two to three hours. Each meal and snack throughout the different phases of the plan is designed to boost fat-burning while keeping you satisfied. Variety also plays a key role because by switching up your food intake, you'll lose weight faster, according to Dr. Smith.

Here's an example of how the timing approach works:

7:30 A.M. Awake
8:30 A.M. Meal 1
10:00 A.M. Snack 1
11:30 A.M. Snack 2
12:30 P.M. Meal 2
4:30 P.M. Meal 3
7:30 P.M. Meal 4
