From the bestselling author of The Fat Smash Diet comes this helpful new diet book promising big results for people who are struggling to lose that last 20 pounds.
Many of us know firsthand how it gets more difficult to lose weight as we get closer to our goal. This book is designed to help you push through the plateaus when your previous weight loss efforts have stopped working.
Dr. Ian K. Smith has created this program, which combines a low Glycemic Index diet with meal spacing and meal replacements. (Dieters on the Shred Diet plan will be eating every three and a half hours, so it helps you keep your blood sugar – and moods – in check). The diet is composed of 6 week cycles, which you can repeat as often as you need to get the results you want. Dr. Ian puts the average weight loss for a cycle between 18 and 25 pounds.
What we love about the Shred diet is its inherent flexibility. Dr. Ian offers solid education about what works to push through frustrating plateaus and he provides specific guidelines to follow, but he emphasizes that, once you get an understanding of the Shred philosophy, you’ll be able to eat anywhere and know that you have the ability to both enjoy yourself (and food) while staying lean.
We also love that the focus is on eating a variety of healthy foods and on paying attention to meal spacing. As Dr. Ian says “the timing of your meals and snacks can be a reason why you are or aren’t losing weight.”
Dr. Ian has launched “Shredder Nation,” which you can get a taste of online.

The book is available at amazon for preorder (with a release date of January 10).
