What do you do when you are working out, eating right and you seem to have hit this wall where you are no longer losing weight but you have still not reached your goal? Author lan K Smith lays out a strategic plan of how to break through that plateau in his 6 week program laid out in this book. Through a varying workout plan and switching up your food, Ian shows the way to losing those hard to lose pounds and gain control.
Why did I want to read this book?
I enjoy reading about people who are successful in fitness and I am always interested in learning more on healthy eating and ways to work out that mix it up. I like the idea of the 4 small meals and three snacks a day (eating something every 3-4 hours), while I have not yet implemented anything from this book into my daily eating or lifestyle, I do think I will as I like the foods that are suggested.
Another part of this book is that each week is laid out with a where you are at section, what to expect at this point and a day-to-day meal plan with many choices. I also like that each week has guidelines for helping you with food purchases, what to look for when reading labels and all foods are every day items you can easily pick up at your local grocery store.
While you may think that the smaller and more frequent meals would be hard to keep up on around your daily life, with a little pre planning these mini meals are easy to take with you. You also get some surprise “shake up” meals within the plan like grilled cheese and pizza.
I have read many books on this subject and do not find all of them doable or even likable. I believe SHRED is a good program for those working on that last 10 to 20 pounds and I also think it would for for those looking for a way to kick off a healthier eating and work out program as well.
I was sent this book for an honest review and also had purchased a copy so I would offer a giveaway to one lucky commenter. Leave me a comment below on one thing you are doing to lead a healthier life style in 2013. I will choose a winner using Random.Org on Friday February 15th and then I will mail the book to the winner.
