Wendy Williams talks 'Super Shred' weight loss diet with Dr. Ian: Lose 20 lbs

Showing off her whittled waistline, Wendy Williams focused on fat-burning diets on her show recently. Wendy welcomed weight loss guru Dr. Ian Smith to her stage to dish the skinny.

Dr. Ian has written a new book: "Super Shred: The Big Results Diet: 4 Weeks 20 Pounds Lose It Faster." He told Wendy that although he used to advise patients to lose weight slowly, the latest studies have shown that rapid weight loss can have advantages: It motivates you to stick with the plan and, when you use an approach that includes enough protein, you can still maintain your muscle mass while burning fat.

Showing Wendy a spread of tasty food, Dr. Ian told her that dieters can eat all that on his diet. The keys are timing, portion control and nutrient-dense food choices.

To achieve fast, yet safe, weight loss, use these three elements:

  • Sliding Nutrient Density: Toward the latter part of your day, eat more plant-based foods.
  • Calorie Disruption: Vary your calories and foods from day to day, week to week.
  • Negative Energy Balance: Create a state where your body extracts energy from stored fat, thereby boosting calorie burn and reducing fat.

So what happens after those four weeks? We asked that question in a previous conversation with Dr. Ian. And here's the skinny: You can segue to his original "Shred" book: "Shred: The Revolutionary Diet: 6 Weeks 4 Inches 2 Sizes" (click for details). It's also full of variety, tasty meal plans and even recipes.

Our recommendation after reading both books: If you want to make 2014 the year of weight loss, then invest in both:
