Dr. Ian K. Smith is solving many of dieting’s biggest dilemmas through his popular SHRED diet. The first book in the SHRED series, SHRED: The Revolutionary Diet and follow-up SUPER SHRED: The Big Results Diet, published in 2012 and 2013, respectfully, have “shredders” taking to social media to discuss their various weight loss results. So what is the SHRED diet?

The SHRED diet is a combination of a low GI (glycemic index) diet, meal spacing and meal replacements.  Here’s the best part of the diet: you will be constantly eating. Yes, I said constantly.  It requires shredders to eat four meals or meal replacements, such as soups, smoothies and shakes. Along with the four meal and or meal replacements, shredders can eat three snacks a day throughout the six-week program. The book states that shredders can lose four inches and two sizes all within six weeks.

What makes this diet different? This diet is about reshaping your body via diet confusion.  SHRED is modeled after the strategy called muscle confusion, which helps break you through plateaus of muscle growth.

Throughout the six-week period, the diet consists of different components:

Week 1: Prime. The first week is your introduction to the diet and help adapt your body to the lifestyle change.

Week 2: Challenge. During the second week, you are now getting serious about reducing your calorie intake.

Week 3: Transformation. You will start noticing a difference in how you look and feel.

Week 4: Ascend. Use this week to rebuild strength and gain confidence.

Week 5: Cleanse.This week you being a detox, which allows cleansing of your blood and eliminating toxins from your body.

Week 6: Explode. In the final week, you have established a new lifestyle that you can maintain for a lifetime.

Once you finish week six, you can celebrate but not for too long, as Dr. Ian helps you extend your hard-earned results by kicking it up another notch with “SUPER SHRED…a four-week super-charged program that shares the same principles—meal spacing, snacking, meal replacement, and diet confusion—as SHRED—with twice the intensity and a shorter quick-acting plan. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with SHRED.”

SHRED: The Revolutionary Diet and SUPER SHRED are available in stores and online websites such as, Amazon and Google Play.

Your Guide To Shopping For Produce

Find out what produce you should definitely buy organic, and what is okay to buy conventionally

Published

on

It seems to be getting harder and harder to know what is being sold to us at the grocery store. We know that the beautiful, shiny produce is the most affordable but probably contains the highest amounts of wax, pesticides and other chemicals. However, organic can be a bit pricey and possibly unavailable, depending on where you have access to shop.

Did you know that the USDA found a total of 178 different pesticides and pesticide breakdown products on the thousands of produce samples it analyzed? The pesticides persisted on fruits and vegetables even when they were washed and, in some cases, peeled.

See what happens when you pour hot water on conventional apples. The chemicals literally melt! It’s important that we buy organic and if we cannot, at least wash our produce prior to consuming (Video: Laurline Eldemire Lawrence via Facebook):

Check out the most recent list of produce that you should preferably buy organic, known as the ‘Dirty Dozen,’ and which produce is safe to purchase conventionally, known as the ‘Clean Fifteen.’ While you may not find every produce item you like to eat on these lists, this is a great start!

Gee Bryant A Force To Reckon With in the Fitness Industry

Atlanta’s Transformation Specialist Talks About His Road from Uncertainty to Becoming a Successful Businessman and Celebrity Trainer

Published

Fitness expert, success coach and entrepreneur Gee Bryant has always been a hustler with a “MUST get it” attitude, and he’s walking in his purpose. He’s the brains behind the #1 online fitness program Results in 28 Days and owner of The Loft Atlanta, Phlexx Fitness and is CMO of Fitness Plane.

Gee says that he never had a “real” job and did whatever he could to make money. He tried multiple business ventures that eventually led him to become a personal trainer, as a way to work for himself while also staying active. Even though fitness was never cool where he’s from, Gee says he’s always been in his own lane. He has always recognized that he is unique and learned that by being a personal trainer he had a major impact on people. This hobby eventually transformed into a passion.

Growing up in Philly, Gee says there was a lot of pain – he used to reflect on it and let it consume him, but now he uses his pain to push him further.

“You can’t be a victim your whole life.”

In 2015, after starting to create buzz around his name as a personal trainer, Gee decided to move to Atlanta with just his car and clothes. He created boot camps, trainings, began marketing himself on social media and just doing anything to make money, to pay rent, and to NOT go back.

“If you ain’t willing to go crazy, then leave the entrepreneurship game.”

Gee created a business plan with the mindset, “I’m going ALL IN.” He started with, “How much money do I want to make? And, How many people do I need to help?” He also began reading books and focusing on personal development.

“As you expand, your mind has to expand as well.”

Gee had a plan and a goal, and decided to do anything he could to make it all come true. His efforts started to work so well that Gee had an overload of clients, which then gave him reason to open up his first gym.

During this time he was constantly growing his brand on social media and in the fitness profession, but knew he wouldn’t be able to fully execute his vision without the right help. So, he reached out to trainers to hire and assist in his gym.

“I’m a control freak, but I had to learn how to let go. It’s better to have someone who can do something 70%, than you trying to do it 100%. If you try to do everything you’ll burn yourself out.”

Gee began pushing online programs that he created on his own, recorded on YouTube and from that he started increasing his clientele. From there, he built his website.

“For this to go global, it has to be beyond me.”

It was then that Gee created the RI28 program. Gee says he makes his program different.

“I get their mind right. Your body won’t go where your mind won’t let it.”

Gee says his program is so effective because it’s easy to follow, he has the RI28 Facebook support group, it’s only a 28 day program, the meal plan and workouts are included, he has a team of like minded people behind him, and it’s SIMPLE.

The Loft Athletic Club opened in Atlanta, GA this year. Not only did Gee need a bigger space, but he says, “It was time.” Loft Atlanta is FOR Atlanta.

“I did it MY way, he says.” He never cheated the process, and changed and helped thousands of people do the same thing.

What he wants people to know is that they can do whatever they want, not become a product of their environment, and he wants his legacy to be a legacy of SERVICE.

Gee encourages other entrepreneurs to be obsessed and consistent about their brand and reminds us that small daily improvements = long term results.

2018 is here and there is so much more for Gee Bryant to accomplish. Make sure to follow him @geebryant and via his website to not only stay in the loop with what he’s up to next, but to get all the information on how to join any of his programs or find his facilities.
