Book Description

Dec 31 2013

The diet that works faster and forever!


 Using the same principles—meal spacing, snacking, meal replacement and diet confusion—that made his SHRED a major #1 bestseller—Dr. Ian 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.


It’s a program with four week-long cycles:

--Foundation, when you’ll eat four meals and three snacks a day, start shedding pounds and set yourself up for success

--Accelerate, when you’ll kick it up and speed up weight loss

--Shape, the toughest week in the program, and the one that will get your body back by keeping it guessing

--Tenacious, a final sprint that cements your improved eating habits and melts off those last stubborn pounds

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars easy to understand and use Jan. 7 2014
I find a lot of weight loss books are just to preachy... I mean, they go on and on about how you have to get into the mindset, which makes sense, but I am already in the mindset if I am reading your book.

This book is nice in that it doesn't really do this. It is concise and to the point for what I want.

The biggest part of the book I like is that it provides a 4 week plan of your diet and your excercise. It shows you what to eat each day (with possible substitutions), the coordinating recipes, and the grocery list (!!!). This is what I want, something simplistic, and tells me exactly what I should do.

THe book claims that follow this plan will lose (on average) about 20 lbs in the first month, I am crossing my fingers that it is true, but I am not far enough in the timeline to know for sure.

Should you buy? at the moment I say yes, as I really like the concise nature of this book

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not really for Kindle March 2 2014

I like the variety I snack ideas and the calorie disruption schedule. I lost 10 lbs, but only had about that much to lose. It was a mistake to order the book in Kindle form. It made flipping back and forth a pain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for RAPID Weight Loss Jan. 3 2014
By Jtrendway78 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The Super Shred diet builds on the success of Ian Smith's Shred diet and offers a plan specifically designed for rapid weight loss. Super Shred is perfect if you have an upcoming event you need to get into shape for. Smith claims that the average person will lose about 20 pounds in the first month on the plan. The book's introductory material is well-written and includes lots of information on the latest research. For example, Smith incorporates intermittent fasting into the plan and explains the rationale behind this technique.

The diet is divided into four one-week phases, and each phase has an extremely detailed meal plan with every meal set out for every day. The plan does allow substitutions if you have any problems with the plan. The plan also includes about 40 minutes of exercise on nearly every day. Each week has a detailed shopping list, so it's easy to plan ahead.

One thing I would add is that if you are on a rapid weight loss plan, it is critical to get lots of protein to help avoid muscle loss. I'd also recommend The Protein Express Diet: Rapid Weight Loss with a Simplified Low Carb, High Protein Diet, which has its own easy to follow diet plan and also has easy to prepare protein meals that you can used together with the Super Shred plan.

The Super Shred book has just over 60 recipes for snacks, smoothies and soups in the back of the book. These are clear, but very minimal. The book is very concise but it provides an easy to follow and very precise plan. If you need to lose weight fast this is definitely worth a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars SHRED for life Jan. 15 2014
By Kimberly Cunningham - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
On July 1 2013, after 30 years of trying numerous diets out there and failing, I surrendered myself to SHRED. Sick and tired of dieting then putting the weight back on because I never learned how to fuel my body properly I exhaled and started. I stopped overthinking the process and just followed what was written in the book. Dr. Smith has it all laid out for you. I was so thrilled with my results that when I saw Super SHRED , I knew that it would be a winner.

All of his programs work, if you work them. Super SHRED is as he boasts for short term quick weight loss in a healthy way eating real foods. You still get to have pizza or lasagna or a sandwich or pancakes but all with moderation. There are no prepackaged foods required to buy, all regular food eaten in intervals throughout the day. The key is to keep,your body guessing so it doesn't go into a plateau and to keep,the metabolism revved. To date, I have lost nearly 50 pounds from doing SHRED and Super SHRED. These plans lead you to a path of healthy lifestyle eating.

2.0 out of 5 stars I don't know... Jan. 3 2014
By The Liger - Published on
Hello everyone, I wanted to make some comments on the advice given by Dr. Smith. Don't just take my word for it, please do your own research. I am not a diet expert like Dr. Smith. I'm just a Marine who decided to get a personal training certification and become a fitness professional. As a result I continue to read books and articles from other experts in the industry. In short, I do my homework.

Let's begin.

1. "Weigh yourself in the morning the day you start the program and make sure you record it."

I personally don't agree with this. I don't even own a scale. I say throw the scale away, and here's why. The scale isn't smart enough to distinguish what's fat, muscle, water, etc. Sure, you might lose a couple of pounds here and there, but some of that might be lean muscle, which you need. I just feel that people should not fixate on some number, true health and fitness should be measured by an individual's actual physical abilities. Then improve on those. As a side effect, you will be healthy.

2. "Do not skip meals. Even if you're not hungry"

I 100% agree with this one. You should NOT be skipping meals, and you should be eating MORE. The reason why this works is because you're going to be loading the body with nutrients that are beneficial in the fat shrinking process. You will be cutting out everything bad. Eat more good, eat less bad. Don't just try to eat less overall. Doesn't matter how little you eat if it's bad for you. It still hurts you, and you deprive the body of much needed nutrients. Especially when you begin exercising. A higher demand on the body deserves better nutrition to help it recover.

3. " All of your shakes and smoothies this week must be 200 calories or less"

Disagree. The calorie was discovered in the 18th century. Kekwick and Pawan proved that no calorie is created equal. They showed what happens when a person consumes 1 type of calorie. I just don't see how incinerating food is equal to the bodies metabolism. I also find it quite confusing when there are so many different definitions for calculating a "calorie." My advice is to forget about calories all together. You should be consuming MORE calories, but nutritional ones. Ones that will help you shrink fat, not gain. Focus more on nutrition labels. The main thing is to avoid sugar like the plague.

4. " Snacks are optional, but highly recommended."

No they are not. If you wish to keep your metabolism running hot all day and working for you then you need to put fire logs in the furnace. You should be consuming healthy snacks such as seeds, nuts, and berries. Please note that Dr. Smith suggests SHRED bars and popcorn as snacks...

5. "Soups are an option, including store- bought soups. But make sure you look at the sodium content: no more than 480 milligrams per serving."

What would happen to me if I did eat more than 480mg of sodium in one sitting? Nothing. I wouldn't gain or lose fat. It's irrelevant.

"In humans, sodium is an essential nutrient that regulates blood volume, blood pressure, osmotic equilibrium and pH; the minimum physiological requirement for sodium is 500 milligrams per day." - wiki

Soups are awesome, make some at home with meats and veggies only. It's the best.

6. " Consume 1 cup of water before every meal."

I agree with this one. I personally go for a gallon of water a day. Highly important to stay hydrated during this entire process. You must be hydrated every single day.

Well it appears that I am low on characters I can post. I won't be able to finish my thoughts on the rest. I hope this sparked some people to dig deeper. I'm just trying to help and save lives. If you like my advice please check out my work at "300 PFT." Thanks!
