A Lifestyle plan that works regardless of age or size
SHRED has changed my life in a dramatic way. Before I started SHRED I was on another program where I had lost 40 pounds and had been on a plateau for over a month. I started with Shred in August while following Dr. Ian on twitter and here I am in December 45 pounds lighter and beginning to live the best years of my life. I am 54 years old and have never felt this great as far back as I can remember and I am talking at least for the past 25 to 30 years. This is no joke, my health has taken a dramatic turn, I went from high cholesterol (265 highest ever) now to 188, high blood pressure to normal blood pressure, size 24/26 to size 18/16, pre-diabetes to normal glucose levels and from basically no exercising (use to hate it) to exercising at least 6 days a week. Shredding has taught me what is the best and healthiest way to eat when I am eating out and my portions have become smaller. I am never hungry cause I am in the habit of eating 4 small meals a day plus my snacks. The foods you eat are affordable and found in your local grocery stores. There are no gimmicks or quick fix with Shred, it's a way of life and something you can live with everyday. This is a plan that I have incorporated in my household and now we all are eating healthier, working out together and living a healthier lifestyle. The book is easy to read, the instructions are easy to follow. My first month on Shred I had lost 27 pounds which is a miracle and this was done by eating 4 small meals a day plus healthy snacks and starting with cardio (walking, Zumba and elliptical). I would highly recommend this book to those who want to live a healthier life, eating the right way and the benefits will be 20 pounds in 6 weeks. It works and the awesome thing about Shred, it is affordable and all foods are easily accessible. I am no celebrity, a single middle class mom/grandmother who took the wisdom of Dr. Ian and made it worked for me. By this summer I plan on being at my goal weight and intend on keeping it off because I have found a plan that I love and enjoy doing. The book is worth buying and you will find it useful as you pursue your dream of being a healthier/slimmer person. Get the book and start shredding.

I wish I would have bought the paper version. Some of the charts re times of eating are unreadable on the Nook. Also, there is a lot of going back and forth to the recipes and the days to see what you need on hand for the week. Not as easy with the Nook version. I start the Shred Diet tomorrow so I'll get back to you on the diet.

    Yes, this is easy to understand but as many reviewers mentioned, it is a lot like reading the same page over and over, andbe aware that he considers a meal - for instance breakfast...to be an omelet made form two egg whites. I hope that those who incorporated this diet into their household have no teens or small children, or people who work really hard, shovel snow, dig gardens with a shovel, as they would not be getting enough energy or calories, I feel. I have only been on it for several days and I feel like I am starving. ANy food at all looks better than it did before I began dieting. Yes, if you will follow this diet, you will lose weight and you will always be hungry while you are on it, too.

    I am on the 6th week of this diet. YES you will lose weight. I did not drop 20 lbs but getting there. The book give you meal choices  some days. I found it easy to pick between the guidelines of the meal and snacks.Recipes in the book were all good. I will continue to follow maintenance. But buy the book not an E- book you will find it easier to follow your days meal and snacks.  I hate to worry about every food I eat this book laid it out plain and simple. You do have to exercise 5 out of 7 days and eat something every few hours. Plan your weeks meals so you have a ingredients on hand.

    I found this book to be same old same old.  He's said the exact same things in his previous books.  Nothing revolutionary here whatsoever.  Plus, he talks in all that phony baloney jargon about his plan being effortless.  Everyone knows dieting isn't effortless.  I feel like this guy is full of it and I really didn't appreciate that about the book.

    monetarily recommended

    The menus are to difficult to follow for some one who works in a group home and has to eat what the clients eat, because they have to module. Staff has to cook what has been ordered by the dietician of the agency.

    I found this info to be totally redundant.  Ian says the exact same things in this book as he has in his last several books.  If you already have a basic level of knowledge about weight loss or one of his other books I would pass on this.  Nothing of note or new here.
