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:

Super Shred: The Big Results Diet by # New York Times bestselling author Dr. Ian Smith is a four-week supercharged weight loss plan based on a combination of new science and the dieter-tested concepts behind Dr. Ian’s #1 mega-bestseller of 2013, Shred: The Revolutionary Diet. Dr. Ian K. Smith was also recently announced as co-host of the Emmy-winning daytime talk show The Doctors.

I found this book to be very informative and motivational. Packed with well-researched information based on proven sc
I picked this up as desperate attempt to get in shape before a wedding. I did not follow the diet super closely and managed to lose about 7-8 lbs in a month. May not sound like much, but that's about 2 lbs/week, which is not an easy thing to do.

Here's what I liked:
-the diet forced me to change my portion sizes
-I was not usually hungry, because it had me eating many meals a day
-it laid out plenty of meal/snack options, so I didn't have to do much guesswork on my own
-it pushed me to find the very
Although I didn't lose the 20 pounds the book says you could lose in 4 weeks, I did lose 10 pounds in 3 weeks and I am happy with that result. The information in the book is very informative and it also includes many 100 and 150 calorie snacks along with soup and smoothie recipes.

The technique is basically carb cycling which Dr. Ian Smith explains very well in the book. Each week has different meal plans that are outlined specifically to maximize your metabolism. I will definitely do this progr
I read this on the recommendation of a colleague. There's plenty of sound advice in this book, including rounding out your meals with healthy snacks and lots of fruits and veggies, as well as tips for staying hydrated and for ensuring your workouts don't work against you. That said, I think the content wasn't for me: Dr. Smith provides a detailed meal plan you must follow for a month. I would have liked this book to include more about his diet philosophy and less menu information. I understand t ...more
I liked this book. IT is a no nonsense approach to short term quick weight loss. I you are wanting to start a diet and get positive results quick then this is the diet for you to start with. Then you should switch to a lifestyle weight loss regime.

I love the clear way that Dr Ian Smith lays out the diet plan with meal plans that you can easily customize, and great low cal snack recipes.

The foods that you eat are sensible and healthy. No processed foods. Just whole food goodness.

Very tough program!

After reading the book my only comment is Dr Ian Smith Super Shred is tough! I am using it as a great jump start program. Time will tell if it is effective. I have several issues with the program. The wake time coupled with the eating times are not easily followed if you work and have a family. I would ask that the time tables are adjusted for those who work to ensure success. Thank you.

Not only am I reading this book, I am following the program. As I near the end of week two, I have found that I am not hungry. I like that Dr. Ian's method gives you choices. If you have not had the opportunity to check out the book and need a solution to jump start your weight loss effort, this book is for you! SHRED ON!

This plan works! I have PCOS, so losing weight is a nightmare. In my 30s now, it's become so much more challenging. I tried Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, a low carb diet specially designed for me by the dietician at my endocrinologist's office and NOTHING. I once lost 3 pounds in a month; so depressing! Then I heard about Shred and Super Shred on The Doctors TV show. I was willing to try anything! I lost 11 pounds in 4 weeks!!! While it's not the 20 I had hoped for, it was huge for me. In fact, ...more
its like if the south beach diet and the fast diet, had a baby. and youre only supposed to do it for lent lol. I liked the concept and the fact that he is promoting a solution for those last stubborn pounds people cant get rid of.
I am not sure this will work but I will be willing to try it for four weeks.
Meredith Gray
A bit unrealistic. I was hungry the whole time I did it.
First week in & 6.6 lbs down

Once I planned my days a few at a time ahead of time, book is easy to follow! looking forward to results at end of fourth week.
Yea! I made it through the whole month. I only needed to lose 15 and I lost 9. I think that this book is geared more for people that have more that 20 pounds to lose and aren't already doing much exercise. If you fit into that category, I highly recommend this book.
Bethany McKay
I LOVE this diet! It is a great way to change your life with actual healthy eating tips. I would suggest the Shred Revolutionary Diet first, though. Also, I gave it one less star because I would have liked better tips for vegans/vegetarians.
Liberty Abbott-Sylvester
I plan on buying this book. Of all the books I've read this one seems really doable! Want to try the diet out.

Shredder for life

Dr Ian Smith has done it again, plans to live by. And as always simple repeatable steps make both Shred plans easy and fun to follow.
