Awesome Must-Read!

I've been on many diets over the years and have gained and lost stupid amounts of weight. But my best success was almost three years ago, I bought Ian Smith's book, The Fat Smash Diet and lost 60 pounds. I was able to keep it off until six months ago and have gained 25 ...
I've been on many diets over the years and have gained and lost stupid amounts of weight. But my best success was almost three years ago, I bought Ian Smith's book, The Fat Smash Diet and lost 60 pounds. I was able to keep it off until six months ago and have gained 25 pounds. I promised myself that I would lose the weight in the beginning of the year, and wanted something new to try.

The 4 Day Diet rules!!!The first part--motivating us to lose--is exactly what I needed. I've done the detox and two of the seven other 4 day diets and they are all easy to follow.

I would also like to recommend yoga to help stay motivated. It's what I stopped doing when I gained the weight. I'm doing it again and it reminds me to take care of my body, to treasure it.

Here's another weight loss tip for those searching to keep on your diet. As an interior designer, when I help clients get rid of clutter, make their homes beautiful, they feel pampered.I have seen remarkable changes in clients--weight loss, meeting new partners, etc. when I help transform their homes. One book that helped me learn a ton is HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT: BEAUTIFY, DETOXIFY & ENERGIZE YOUR LIFE, YOUR HOME & YOUR PLANET.

Anyway, I am really enjoying The 4 Day Diet because each module is so different and I crave that. Nothing is worse than a diet consisting of eating the same old stuff day in day out.

I have also tried several of the recipes and they are quite good--good enough to eat when you are not even dieting!

Buy this book--Smith motivates you to diet and provides lots of good stuff to eat!

Quick weight loss

If you want to lose some weight in 4 days, then this book is for you. I really like Dr. Smith. But, I do think this will work for those who want a lifestyle change and effort. It will be my back up when I put on few pounds after vacations.

    Disappointed

    Thought this was the worse book about dieting I ever read. Did not find it informative. To me it seems almost like a starvation diet. Could not return it since the return deadline had passed. The book went into the trash.
