The Smash Diet
those who have never hear of the Smash Diet, here is a brief
explanation. For the past couple of years, there has been an
addicting show that dieters and celebrity fanatics can’t help but to
tune into every once in awhile. On VH1, “Celebrity Fit Club” has
taken celebrities, such as Kelly LaBrock, Chasity Bono, Gary Busey
and Wendy Kaufman (the Snapple Lady) through an intense exercise and
dieting program. If you ever wondered what diet the celebrities were
following, it is called the Smash diet.
Smith, who has served as a medical consultant for the nationally
syndicated “The View” and a medical columnist for Men’s Health
magazine, created the Smash diet. His Smash diet has gained acclaim
as the way the celebrities have turned their eating habits into fat
loss results. The Fat Smash Diet is the fourth book written by Dr.
Smith. When you are interested in following this diet, you can order
the book from the official website: http://www.fatsmashdiet.com/,
which also provides testimonials from individuals who have
experienced the diet program.
Smash diet is not promoted for dieters with short-term goals. It is
intended to aid dieters in achieving successful results through a
few lifestyle changes. The Smash diet strives for permanent weight
loss, which is broken into four different phases. With Phase 1,
dieters begin with a natural detox, which is supposed to cleanse the
body of impurities that may be clogging the body’s system. When
following the diet, after the completion of Phase 1, a dieter may
experience a 9-day weight loss result of 5-8 pounds.
Phase 1, the other phases begin to take over where you combine
everyday foods that are available at both the household and
restaurants. The Smash diet takes into consideration the different
eating habits of dieters, such as those who are vegan or vegetarian.
the Smash diet, counting calories are a thing of the past because
Dr. Smith has created a list of allowable foods so that the
obsession with calories is transferred to a focus on healthy eating.
Dieters who have been on the Smash diet have reported to feel as if
they were not on a restrictive regimen because the diet allows you
to eat smaller portions of normal foods. The book offers a variety
of easy-to-follow recipes that make deciding what to eat on the diet
even easier. The Smash diet is meant to take 90 days to complete,
creating dieting habits that will change food interaction and the
body towards a future of healthy eating.
