The low-cost diet relies on portion control with nutrient-dense foods. It's detailed in his new book, released on Dec. 31, titled "Super Shred: The Big Results Diet: 4 Weeks, 20 Pounds - Lose It Faster! "
Using the same principles of meal spacing, snacking, meal replacement and diet confusion, that made his SHRED a major number one 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.
Dr. Smith says the regimented plan involves scheduling meals, mainly of plant-based foods in controlled portions, to create a negative energy balance... where your body extracts energy from stored fat, thereby boosting calorie burn and reducing fat. Most dieters don't realize that simply by cutting back as little as 20 percent at each meal, they can lose a significant amount of weight.
Research has shown that with intermittent fasting, blood pressure is reduced, levels of sugars and fats in circulation are improved, and inflammation, an indicator of heart disease risk, can be limited. Every week there is a day when you are eating a reduced amount of calories compared to the other days, to achieve this. He has dieters follow a specific four-week eating plan, including some days where the calorie count is about 1,600, and other days where it is 900. (The average caloric intake for women is about 1,800 a day; for men, 2,500, according to government statistics).
Smith's plan includes specific grocery lists and meal plans. He also recommends doing about 40 minutes or more of high-intensity interval aerobic exercise a day.
The Super Shred Diet is a program with four week-long cycles:
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.
