‘SHRED: The Revolutionary Diet’ – What Is It and Can It Help You?

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.

Lose It Fast, Lose it Forever by “Biggest Loser” Pete Thomas



Black Fitness Today is excited to have received a copy of Lose It Fast, Lose It Forever, from Avery Books and former “Biggest Loser” contestant Pete Thomas before its release date On September 17th! If you haven’t heard, Pete Thomas is most successful “Biggest Loser” contestant of all time, dropping a total of 185 pounds and keeping it off for over seven years!

Lose it Fast, Lose It Forever is a 4-Step Permanent Weight Loss Plan that we love and would recommend because it strays away from typical “tips” and “tricks” and provides a successful framework not only for weight loss, but also developing lifelong, healthy habits.

The foreword by Jillian Michaels paints a beautiful picture of Thomas’s journey. In it, she says “I can truly say that Pete was one of my most dedicated students, and to prove it I keep inviting him to come and work with me on my projects. Why? Very simple. Pete kept the weight off long after the cameras stopped rolling. I like to show him off. He makes me look good.”

Thomas opens up to readers about the root causes of his obesity including his difficult childhood, the role “Biggest Loser” played, and his how his popular weight-loss program and boot camp have helped so many others keep the weight off. Thomas is now a licensed personal trainer and full-time motivational speaker residing in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

To find out more information on Pete Thomas, visit his website –, on Twitter, @petethomas, or on Facebook at

Lose It Fast, Lose It Forever will available for purchase via hardcover or e-book on September, 17, 2012. Special thanks to Pete Thomas and Avery Books for providing us with a book before its release! We highly recommend it!
