I am typically not someone who likes the word "diet." Nor do I like to say I'm on a diet, or I'm going to start a diet. I am more the type of person who just changes their eating habits and ups their activity level which is the better way to go about it. Especially versus going on all those crazy diets that are out their these days. However, when I came across Dr. Ian Smith's "Fat Smash" diet, I kind of changed my mind. Even though this is called a diet, it is definitely more of a lifestyle change which I like the concept of more. Dr. Ian wrote a great little book about his diet, called "The Fat Smash Diet: The Last Diet You'll Ever Need."
Dr. Ian has come to light thanks to being the main doctor on VH1's hit show "Celebrity Fit Club." He prescribed this "diet" to everyone on the show and everyone had great results. Although everyone could probably have great results if they had the money to pay for a chef to cook all of your meals and to hire a great personal trainer.
Inside of this book Dr. Ian goes through the diet and breaks it down very easily for you to understand. It includes an explanation of the four phases of the diet and includes lists of food suggestions and restrictions for each of the phases. It also includes many different recipes for each of the phases and also meal plans to go by if you are the type of person that needs to be told what to eat and when. It is nice to have that list there as a basis to go by and to keep you on track.
Whether you are interested in a lifestyle change or want to go on a "diet" to lose so many pounds, this is a great place to start. This book offers some great tips and great food options and recipies for someone looking to make a change. Plus, compared to some of the other "diet" books out there this price at $10.99 is a great bargain!
I personally have used the diet in this book and lost about fifteen pounds. It's a lot easier to follow once you get over the first two stages and past all of the initial restrictions. But this book is more about a lifestyle change and it teaches you how to incorporate all those bad foods you love including pizza, french fries, burgers, back into your diet without causing your waistband to expand. If you're looking for a good book on "dieting" this is definitely a good one to pick up and take a look at. I'm glad that I did!
