Not my thing

I sure tried it but it wasn't my thing. The diet doesn't allow any room for failure.

It does allow room for failure & says so right in the book. You just pick yourself up by your boot straps & pick up where you left off. As a matter of fact it is more forgivving than most diets because you eat so well 99% of the time so that 1% of the time that you might fail or waiver it does not out carry much wt so to speak.

About Fat Smash Diet in a nut shell

Here's the skinny LOL on the FAT SMASH Diet, Check my log out to see what I'm eating & how fast I am loosing during Phase I detox! It's unbelievable. I was severly addicted to sugar right b4 I started FS Diet, eating 1-2 candy bars at night & 4 servings of lf icecream, cookies.... really bad. After 1 day on FS my cravings were gone & the wt started coming off. (5.75 in 5 days! I only want to lose my last 15 lbs so that I can maintain for life. But I can never seem to get there. Now I know I can!

This is really not a diet but a normal healthy way to eat by the end of phase 4.
There are 4 phases. Phase 1 is detox to clean out your body of all the junk we have been abusing ourselves with. You eat all the fruits & veggis you want except white potatos & Avacados. You also can have up to and any of the following: unlimited legumes/beans & tofu, 1 cup of oatmeal, 2 cups of brown rice, 2 cups lf or 1% milk, 2 6oz yogurts and 4 eggwhites (eggbeaters) only water & 2 cups of herbal tea to drink. you get a very limited amount of olive oil & lf & ff dressing to use. You do this for 9 days. You are not suppose to weigh until AM of day 10 but I weigh in almost everyday, the progress motivates me! My husband hasn't weighed yet.

Phase 2 for 3wks you keep everything you are eating in phase I & add in most protein meat chicken turkey fish (except pork), 1 whole egg add unsweetend ceral, 1 oz of cheese, coffee 1 10 oz cup & 2 diet pops a day come back.

Phase 3 4 weeks: increase the amounts of protein, adds ff mayo & peanut butter, 2 whole eggs, 3 cups of lf milk now & 1.3 oz of lf/ff cheese, 2 cups of freshly squeezed juice & whole grains bread 4 slices a day, 1 cup of pasta and 1 desert serving per day.

Phase 4 for life every food you want come back including alchol & all sweets/chips everything. the idea is your able to now handle a snack or high fat meal & go back to your regular good habits you have learned to retrain your body with.

He also demands 5 days of cardio work out a week & the time spent exercising increase 20% every phase. This is key to burning calories while reducing your calorie intake w/food make you loose the wt twice as fast.

It is so easy & I have gotten creative w/recipies during the 1st 9 days & we grilled veggies & ate lots of bean soups.

No gimicks, not a lot of rules the book is even cheap on line to buy. I think the website is www.fatsmashdiet.com

I'm going to start the Fat Smash Detox tomorrow as I see that I am in a weak place and need to break my body out of its toxic food cravings. I've done it before - I can do it again.
Although I am a vegetarian, the first 9 days sound like eating Vegan.
Does anyone have any advice on how to stay on track and, share any warnings?

fat smash question

I started the Extreme Fat Smash Diet on Sat, June 2nd. I can do this, but I hate beans! Is there anyone who can give me an alternative to beans besides fiber pills?

I started the Fat Smash diet on May 29th. The first two days were hard because I am used to snacking on junk at my desk all day. But I am doing well. I have lost 7 pounds in the first 5 days (couldn't help myself, I had to weigh in). I begin phase 2 on Thursday morning. I miss my meats but I got through on salad unitl I got sick of it and stir fry with brown rice, fruits for breakfast (along with egg whites) and snacks. Pink Grapefruit really got me through. Now, I am pretty tired of salads so I plan to coast into Thursday on fruit alone. That way, I get my sweets fix! Make sure you drink lots of water. And for exercise, I started walking during my lunch hour since I work in a very hilly town. For others like me, this is a great solution if you have to commute everyday. I personally don't feel like exercising once I get home and take care of hubby and son. Plus, when you do have the energy, you can get in some extra exercise!

Fat Smash Diet

Hello out there to all fellow Fat Smash Dieters. Today is my first day at smashing the fat. I tried on bathing suits yesterday and realized how critical it was for me to do something and fast. I know it is going to be really hard. I hate yogurt, brown rice and oatmeal. I need all the support I can get. There aren't enough recipes in the book and the only one I think I'll even try is the vegetable soup. Any recipes out there to share with someone who knows she's in for a struggle?

curves

I actually work at a curves. I have for years. I lost 100+ lbs doing the Curves workout and the Curves low-carb (high protein) diet. It definitely worked. But, I'm in a rut with it lately and am intrigued by the fat-smash diet. Think I'll pick-up the book today. And keep up with your circuits. For results: make sure you feel the burn in your muscles after EACH AND EVERY machine. If you don't - you're not getting the benefits out of the machine. Work those machines!!!!! That is the ONLY way to see results!

Going to start

Hello all! I am new here. I am 32 and mother to 3 wonderful boys ages 11 yrs, 7 yrs and 18 months old..lots of baby weight to lose. After seeing the success on Celebrity Fit Club, my husband and I have decided to try the Fat Smash Diet. I just ordered my book and the latest that it will arrive in the mail to me is next Tuesday...I am going to start the day after it arrives. I see so much success on this diet and am excited to start. I am also nervous because I really enjoy my coffee in the morning and it sounds like that is not allowed in phase 1. Yikes! The other things on the diet I know I can handle. I am so glad that I have found this site and a support system. Have a wonderful day all and I'll see you soon!

First day

Today is my first day to start Phase I of the Fat Smash Diet. I had oatmeal for breakfast and a banana, then for a snack I ate an apple. Lunch is cucumbers and tomatoes with apple cider vinegar and cayenne pepper for a little bite and 6 oz of yogurt. Then my afternoon snack will be pineapple. I am still hungry though. I love breads and it is really hard for me not to eat bread. I am a huge sandwich eater, I can eat sandwiches every day. I cannot wait until I am able to eat meats and breads again.

Side Effects..

OK, I am trying to put this in a way that is not disgusting but just thought about this:

Has anyone who has been through Phase 1 or is a few days into Phase 1 noticed any unpleasant side effects to the detox? I was talking to my brother about this and he said: "Wow...detox. Your bowels will go through h*** with that but you'll feel better." Yikes! Anyone have anything unpleasant happening in that department? I never thought about that and that kind of made me nervous.

you sound like you have picked good foods, but you need to add the fiber in the beans.. and the rice and eggwhites is what keeps you full.

Fat Smash

I am currently unemployed and can't afford to buy the book...I've been trying to detox for 8 days now by eating stuff I found online but I have no idea of what the entire menu consists of without the book. Can you offer me your journal so I can see what you are eating?
Do you mind sharing some info...it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!

I'm in the same position, can't afford to buy another diet book. Can any of you tell us the foods to eat during phase 1 and how long you should do it for? I'd really appreciate it.

Ok, I just googled for FSD and this came up from PT:

The Fat Smash Diet- Part of a New Wave of Diets That Are Healthy and Actually Work


The Fat Smash Diet is a diet created by Dr. Ian K. Smith best known from VH1's Celebrity Fit Club. The most important thing to know about it is that it works. Fat Smash is part of a "new wave" of diet approaches that are very healthy and sustainable over the long term. The single most important aspect of the diet is the idea that you can eat as many fruits and veggies as you like. This is critically important because traditional diet approaches focus on limiting and restricting the foods you eat. This is a recipe for failure. It is literally impossible to be obese with a diet that is extremely high in fruits, vegetables, greens and legumes. The reason for this is that these foods give your body the nutrition it needs. Diets high in meat, milk, cheese and processed foods are nutrient poor. Your body is not getting what it needs and continually sends signals to your brain to keep eating in a (usually futile attempt) to get nutrients. When you eat a diet high in the "good stuff", your body no longer goes into panic mode when you get hungry. "Food addiction", which is often a reaction to chemicals in food, goes away. You have the foods you need, and you are much less compelled to overeat.

The formal diet is a 90 day program and it is divided into 4 phases. It is a very common sense approach to eating and dieting, and is very popular among the members of the PEERtrainer community. It really does not matter if you want to follow the diet in a formal manner. Take a look at what Dr. Smith is advocating- there is much to learn. Any diet loosely based on his "Phase One" will be healthy and will likely help you lose weight. Additionally, diets high in fruits, vegetables and greens are shown to dramatically lower the risk of heart disease, cancer and more. Due to heavy marketing we are asked if we "Got Milk" and told that "Beef is What's For Dinner." The reality is that the focus on these two food sources is making us fat and probably killing us. This does not mean eliminate meat and dairy. Just go easy on it. And eat all the fruit and veggies you want.

1. Phase I - Detox - This phase lasts 9 days. In this phase you will eat mostly fruits and vegetables. The idea is to cleanse your body of junk and you eliminate things like alcohol and caffeine. You can eat all the fruits & veggies you want except white potatoes and avocados. You also can have the following: legumes/beans & tofu, 1 cup of oatmeal, 2 cups of brown rice, 2 cups lowfat or 1% milk, 2 6oz yogurts and 4 eggwhites (eggbeaters) only water & 2 cups of herbal tea to drink. You also get a very limited amount of olive oil dressing to use. This Phase lasts for 9 days.

How PEERtrainer Helps You Lose Weight with Online Support Groups

2. Phase II - Foundation - This phase lasts 3 weeks. In this phase you eat the same foods as phase I, except you will reintroduce lean meats. Phase 2 is for 3 weeks and you keep everything you are eating in phase I & add in most protein meat chicken turkey fish (except pork), 1 whole egg add unsweetend ceral, 1 oz of cheese, coffee 1 10 oz cup & 2 diet pops a day come back.

3. Phase III - Construction - This phase lasts 4 weeks. In this phase you eat the same foods as phase I & II except you will reintroduce whole wheat pastaand bread. Phase 3 4 weeks: increase the amounts of protein, adds ff mayo & peanut butter, 2 whole eggs, 3 cups of lf milk now & 1.3 oz of lf/ff cheese, 2 cups of freshly squeezed juice & whole grains bread 4 slices a day, 1 cup of pasta and 1 desert serving per day.

4. Phase IV - The Temple - This phase is for life. In this phase you eat the same foods as phase I,II, & III. In addition to those foods, you can eat some white starches (ie. white rice, potatoes) as well as have a couple of glasses of wine or beer each week. Phase 4 for life every food you want come back including alchol & all sweets/chips everything. the idea is your able to now handle a snack or high fat meal & go back to your regular good habits you have learned to retrain your body with.

-Herbal tea, two cups per day
-Low fat dressing, No more than three tablespoons per salad
-Low fat virgin olive oil, one or two teaspoons if grilling veggies

The Importance of Social Support and Self-Monitoring in Following The Fat Smash Diet
Dr Ian Smith gives you the information you need to change your life. It is easy to forget just how powerful his approach is. That said, unless you have a support group to keep you on track, your Fat Smash progress will be incomplete or may end before you have a chance to make it a permanent part of your life. Group and peer support is a highly proven method for losing weight and getting healthy. It is one thing to learn how to lose weight and eat better, it is another thing to put this into practice on a consistent basis. Friends and family are of limited use because there is only so much burden they can bear. Getting the support of an anonymous group of people each day can make the critical difference. Self-monitoring is the other method, backed by volumes of research, that is highly correlated with weight loss success. You keep a log of your food, exercise, goals and thoughts. When you do this each day it keeps you accountable to yourself, and brings this aspect of your life to the top of your mental agenda. When you are writing each day, you are thinking about the things you write about. This begins to change how you think and facilitates better decision making. When you make better decisions, and have a broad support network, you are very likely to lose weight for the long term. When you do both these things, the odds of success increase dramatically.

A free, online resource that facilities both social support and self-monitoring in an easy to use (and anonymous format) is PEERtrainer. You sign up, start or join small groups and teams. You log your food each day, and the others in your group see your log and provide support, motivation and accountability each day. It is like a virtual support group available on the internet whenever you need it. It is highly effective and has been featured in The New York Times, Fitness Magazine, Womens World and Business Week.

FSD people

For any of you doing this....Do you think this would work for someone who can't eat raw veggies due to a medical issue. Can I use non-stick spray and sautee the veggies or eat my veggies steamed? And the fruit can you eat it without the peels?

my experience

I started this plan on Memorial Day. It has been exactly four weeks that I have been following this diet. I have lost 8.5 pounds so far. I only set out to lose 10. Now I would like to add 5 more to my goal.

I think I've hit a plateau, but I'm taking some advice from the last chapter in the book and trying to mix up my exercise routine a bit to break through it. Anyone else in the same boat?

By the way, yes, you can eat any fruit w/o peels. Yes, you can sautee veggies and spice them up--just use a tsp. of olive oil.

IT COULD BE THAT YOU'RE BODY IS JUST NOT USED TO THE DRASTIC CHANGE OF CALORIE AND FAT INTAKE. I'M NO DOCTOR, BUT EVEN I SAY THAT THE DIET IS PRETTY EXTREME (I LOVE IT THOUGH...). WHEN I FIRST STARTED LAST SUMMER, MY STOMACH really WASN'T INTO TEH DETOX. I THINK THE BEST THING TO DO IS TO JUST (I KNOW IT'S HARSH AND I'M SORRY) CLENCH YOUR TEETH AND BEAR IT, BUT DONOT GET DISSAPOINTED FOR, ALAS, THERE IS A SOLUTION!

:YOU'RE BODY WILL GET USED TO IT BY THE SIXTH DAY (PROBABLY)

I'm Inspired & Going For It!

I'm SO inspired by all of your postings. I've just ordered the book online but think I could get started with the information I found here in these postings. I feel like I need inspiration from groups like this though to stay on track. I guess, in a way, people, like me, to believe in me and help inspire me to keep me going. I just found PEERtrainer yesterday and LOVE it already. At least I feel inspired. I have, ideally, 40-50 pounds to lose and HOPE I can believe in myself enough to stick with it. I really am finding that it helps to pick yourself back up and keep going, if you fail. One day or one bad meal won't make you fail. Continued bad days and bad meal choices is what will make you fail. I'm not going to give up just for one meal or one day of failing. Can't wait to post a success story. :-D

Yogurt

Make sure there isn't any high fructose corn syrup in your yogurt. I suggest getting Mountain High Yogurt. It's the most natural yogurt out there. Check out the site. http://www.mountainhighyoghurt.com/

To start with, Mountain High Yoghurt is all natural, with NO artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, starches, or preservatives. Perhaps more importantly, it contains live, active, and probiotic cultures. Most commercial brands only contain the "starter cultures" L. bulgaricus and S. thermophilus . These cultures make milk into yoghurt. But Mountain High's unique blend of the live, active and probiotic cultures L. acidophilus, B. bifidus, and L. casei support your overall wellness.

Yummy

My mom and I are doing the fat smash diet. We got desperate in Phase 1 and added mixed veggies and egg whites to the brown rice (which we cooked in chicken broth) and had kind of a fake fried rice. You can add soy sauce as well. We're on day 8. I've lost 4 lbs and she's lost 7. The biggest difference is how I feel, though. I have a lot more energy! :)

I like smoothies for my larger meal...6 oz yogurt or vanilla lite soy milk, 2 fruits...pineapple and banana or blueberry and banana. ( you can freeze seasonal blueberries) add Splenda and a cap of vanilla and ice..mmmmm. I also have a gas problem and it's very annoying. I have to take Immodium chewables and add benefiber to my smoothies.

Fat Smash Diet

Hello fellow fat smash dieters, this is my first day on fat smash diet, and i did fairly well. the only mistake i made was tonight, i ate a small piece of steak on my salad. I am a big meat eater so it was pretty hard this evening when i made my family some meat.
But other thatn that i think i got this fat smash diet down, i know i will do much better tomorrow.
To all, keep up the good work. you keep me motivated.

try some meat substitues like quorn or boca crumbles. I hear the boca crumbles are really good. I love the quorn.. it helps a little with missing the meats. meats are introduced back in the second phase. so hang in there.

Hi everyone......I am on day 3 of detox and so far so good. I expected to feel alot more hungry but actually feel really satisfied. I am a person who usually skips meals so for me it seems like alot of food. I am very encouraged so far because I do not feel deprived or starving. I think this is really a sensible way to lose weight and redefine our eating habits. I am dying to step on the scale but am holding out.......hope everyone is hanging in there. I love reading everyones advice and tips.........thanks and good luck to all of you!!!

make sure your eating every three hours.. eat the beans and the rice and the oats.. they will keep you from feeling hungry. snack on fruits and veggies in between. I have been doing it over a month. I have lost 17 pounds and never did I feel hungry. your probably not eating enough.

New smasher

I haven't got my book yet so I have a question about diet sodas. We're not supposed to have caffeine but are we allowed a caffeine free diet soda? I am on my 5th day so far and hanging in there. I feel good but am hungry every once in a while. I don't have a lot of ideas of what to eat other than sweet potatoes, rice, beans and various vegetables and salad. Thankfully i like fruits and vegees. Otherwise I wouldn't have even tried. Hopefully I'll have my book in the next day or two.

Phase II

OK, I know you can add meat and I've read the book but it's not clear to me exactly how much you can have. It has a list of meats and fish but am I to choose just one of those to add to my diet? And what about the whole egg? I'm not sure that I'm supposed to choose between the meat and the egg. Anyone got insight on this for me?

Tuesday, August 14, 2007, 6:52 AM

Add comment
3 to 4 oz of meat such as chicken, turkey, minced beef, serloin steak kamb grilled
about the size of a deck of cards/

seafood is halibut, tuna, salmon, sole about 3 oz
prawns or shrimp.. 4 large,
mussels 3 oz
oysters 6-12
clams 3

ok you can have one meat and one seafood or if you dont want seafood you can have two meats and vice versa.

you are still allowed your 4 eggwhites plus one whole egg.

hope that helps.. have fun smashing!

Finished Phase I

OK, just to give you the 411 on how my first phase went: I lost 9 lbs! How awesome is that! I wasn't expecting that. I thought maybe 4 or 5 pounds. So now I'm starting the 2nd phase. I hope I can hang on to reach my goal. I'm scared with adding more things I'm going to gain it back. I'll depend on you for encouragement and support! Thanks.

Phase I - Day 2

I'm a hardcore junk food junkie, so I'm still having convulsions when i walk past the vending machine at work. But I've got my bag of carrot sticks, some yogurt, two pears and two apples to hold me over until lunch time. I am seriously contemplating a whopper and fries, but I'll fight the urge. Instead, I'll head to the chinese restaurant and have them make me a wonton soup, substituting the wontons with broccoli and mushrooms. I did that yesterday, and surprisingly it was delicious and satisfying - only cost me 3 bucks too!

I find it interesting ...

... that I can't find any long-term winners in Fat Smash Diet posters. Everybody is "getting ready to try it" or "just getting into it."

Don't get me wrong, I bought the book, the fruits and veggies and am ready to start. But, I've Googled and I've searched and I'll be damned if I can't really find any good before and after stories of Fat Smash dieters.

I'm unsure how much effort I want to put into this. Is this just a vapor diet? Here today, gone tomorrow, no trace it was here?

Monday, August 20, 2007, 4:15 PM

It is so not a "here today, gone tomorrow"

I have been doing this for a fairly long time, now. I have gone from 240 pounds to 177 pounds. I feel so much better for eating so much healthier than I ever did in the past.

I have done the Atkins Diet for years, with success, mostly. However, I had an increasingly difficult time sticking to it, and gained a lot of my original weight back (I was 300 in 1999).

The Fat Smash Diet is so easy to stick to, it becomes a way of life. Moving gradually into the exercise was a perfect way to make it part of my life style. My wife and I are contractors, so instead of bologna sandwiches in the cooler, we bring non-fat yougurt, bananas, apples, and the like. Also, I fill up on lots of water during the work day.

Successful Fat Smasher!

Can't say enough good about this plan! I cannot and will not refer to it as a diet because it's not a diet - it's just plain common sense.

There are 2 groups here at PT that I've found:

Fat Smashers Unit and Extreme Fat Smash. Want to see success? Check out Fat Smashers Unit and see what a terrific, loving, unconditionally supportive group of individuals that is!! :)

There is also the pay site: www.celebrityfitclub.com You can work either the original or the extreme plan and have infinite selections of food - not just what is listed in the books.

Want inspirational messages direct from Dr. Ian? Check out this free site:

www.50millionpounds.com <-- You won't see Fat Smash mentioned much and it is open to anyone and everyone free of charge. Work whatever plan you want to work - log your weight loss to help Dr. Ian make his dream a reality! He's helping change the American Culture - It's amazing to be a part of this!

If you want to learn a new lifestyle and change to a healthy way of eating and living - then buy either of the books - they are $13 - Not $30 like the other "diet" books. Paperbacks - Easy Reads - Cheap - Common Sense - and it works!

I'm down 21 pounds 2 pant sizes and have gained great self esteem just since mid June!

You've got nothing to loose but weight and unhealthy habits!!

Keep Fat Smashin'!!

fat smash

I agree that it is a better long term diet than WW or Atkins or Slimfast. I have had some minor issues with gas, but as the days go on, I am adjusting and feeling better. Exercise s really crucial. I do not feel overly hungry and I feel full at meals. I cannot wait to see how much weight I am going to lose. I know that after Phase I the weight loss will slow down to a couple of pounds a week, but at least that is consistent weight loss. I also think it is important to go back to phase 1 for a few days whenever you hit a plateau. Also, the increase in exercise is really necessary to get through. I look as this being a lifetime commitment and not a quick fix. The book even talks about this. Good luck everyone!

Fat Smash...

I started the fat smash diet 6 days ago and I am extra paranoid. I was recently on a diet that only allowed 600 calories a day. Believe it or not, I lost 53 lbs off of the limited caloric intake. Now, I have hit a plateau and wanted to try a lifestyle type of change (Fat Smash Diet). I am apprehensive that I will gain the weight (the weight that I previously lost) back, because of the unlimited fruits and veggies (and the inevitable increase in calories). What should I do?

11.18 - 600 cals per day

OMG - 600 cals per day?! What on earth diet was advocating that? Surely that's terribly dangerous. Did you lose 53 lbs of fat or of fat, muscle and bone density? If it's the latter, it's all bad. Don't be concerned about putting on weight, be concerned about putting on fat. Fruit and veg will not make you put on fat. However, your body having been effectively properly starved on 600 cals per day might well try to make up some fat stores now. Let it, then concentrate on eating properly.

the 17 pounds was abut 2 months to do..

the trick to not getting hungry on the plan is to eat every three hours.. eat your beans, oats, and rice.. they are what keeps you feeling full. than snack on fruit and veggies in between.

I eat oats in the morning with a banana or rice with egg whites and salsa ( I love salsa)
water

Than for a snack I will have aan apple or clementines

lunch is maybe a salad maybe with some quorn or black beans with salasa

dinner is veggie burger maybe with sweet poataoe fries and veggies..

I dont have a set menu.. I try new veggies and new fruits weekly..

thats the fun part of this plan is learning new things you like and dont like..

your more than welcome to read my log .. its under lynneta

I started phase 1 again becuase I caught myself slacking and my weight started fluctuating so sunday I started phase 1 over again..

join the fat smash unite team.. its an amazing team of people doing this plan.. wonderful support and friendships.

if I can help in any way .. please feel free to ask..

have fun smashing!

I think it depends on what you were eating before. I actually gained weight by following the diet, b/c I was eating so many more calories, but if you weren't watching what you were eating at all, taking all the garbage out will definately help!
Take a look at what the Fat Blaster extreme is- maybe it also counts calories...

NO COFFEE. Green Tea has caffeine, so get decaf. I too am having the caffeine problem, from people I have talked to who have done this, they say you start to feel normal after a few days. Some people claim to have more energy, but I think that comes a few weeks later when the body is actually starting to adjust to a healthier lifestyle change.

The healthy range for you if you are in your 20s is 121-135 approximately. Be careful not to get caught up in the media standards of what slim is...138 is pretty small for your height. Maybe you should just learn to eat healthily and exercise...so you can maintain your Assests and still be healthy

I do phase 1 dipping into phase 2 and some 3..

2:47 get creative.. try new veggies, new recipes.boca burgers, veggie patties, brown rice pasta can be found at health food stores. trynew fruits..

I too love the beans and brown rice now.. as far as going off phase 2. my health coach tole me i have to learn to eat outside ofphase 1. so He bought me a food scale.. I weigh allmy meats, cheese and such.

8:35 I would not recommend skipping detox.. that part of teh plan cleanses your body of all the processed CRAP we put into it.

congrats to you all who have tried and releasedsome weight. you know it works keepsmashing

1 oz of cheese is alowed in phase 2

6:57.. if you follow phase 2 you will lose weight. just remember after detox the weight does slow down. I have released 15 pounds the last two months.

we can do this guys.. keepbelieving in yourself.. hope that answers your questions.. keep smashing everyone!

Re: Skipping Detox

Please do not skip it..It is the BEST!! You lose the most anywhere between 4-10 pounds!!

I accidentally did white potatoes in my soup last week....so I gained a pound, it
was also "that time of the month" so maybe that is the reason for the pound.

I love the no meat concept and eat meat only once or twice per week. I am going to do some egg whites and fish this week to mobilize my body as I do not want it to plateau. I am now fitting into some mediums..coming from extra large..even though I have only lost 8 pounds....I t is really amazing!! I am hoping for another 6-8 pounds this month!! Thanks for the comments, they have really helpED!!

Sweet tooth

Having a sweet tooth was a big concern for me . It's my Weakness :-( But just with the first day of detox I realized that all the fruit I’m not craving it at all . Last night I had a baked Sweet potato and it was like a dessert! So far so good ! Oh, what do you guys think about daily weigh in?

Is any one else full ?? Am i eating too much???

I eat every 3 hours as recommended. During the day it's mostly fruit a 6oz yogurt in the morning maybe a small salad for lunch and for the last two night I have been having a cup of brown rice and black bean with a tomato cumber salad for dinner . This is just the
Third day and I feel like I’m eating a lot! Maybe it’s because I use to skipping meals and then piling it all in later in the day. Between the every 3 hours and water I’m not starving at all! Okay, I'll be honest in saying I’m so freaking gassy :-( ... what the heck can help me with that??? Beano??? Maybe I shared too much. Oh well any ideas?

Has the FS Diet Been Revised

I just read about the 4 week plan for the FS Diet in First magazine and it seems to me that Week 1: Detox is very different from what is described in the book. Dr. Ian Smith is featured and describes the plan in detail. In the Detox week you can have chicken, fish, or turkey and snacks including low fat ice cream, pudding snacks, Hershey's kisses and jelly beans. Is this something new that he has added to the diet? I'm confused about how to follow this plan because of this article. Thanks.

PP- it is VERY different. I actually got interested in the plan because of that same article. Then I was confused so I looked up some information on line (that's how I found PT by the way :0) and then decided through those posts to go and buy the EFS book. I ended up following that rather than the First's plan. Hope that helps even a little....

Splenda

Is Splenda allowed on the Detox phase of the diet or ever? It seems that Dr. Smith is against artificial sugars. But then I found this website http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/archive/index.php/f-212.html
and it seems that these FS dieters are using it.

Splenda

I do believe it is allowed as sugar subsitutes in small quantities are suggested.
I am in week 6 (second week Phase 3) Have lost 9 lbs, I average 1 pound per week, did not lose any one week, gained 2.6 figured out that I had eaten white potatoes and it was not allowed. I was sooo MAD!! I would have been down at least another pound or two!!
I found a great six week work out plan in prevention magazine, really effective, it builds endurance by changing your daily and weekly workout, increasing time every week. I am in week 5, I do believe it has helped. I also order ed Harvey's Boot Camp, has any used it? How can I increase my average weight loss to 2 pounds per week? I need to lose another 33 -38 pounds and would love to do it all by September 30!! AND SPEND THE REST OF THE YEAR TONING!

Looking for Support

Hello All... I'm a new fat smasher. I just turned 28 a couple of weeks ago. It was a major wake up call. I finally had to accept that the weight will not go away if I starve myself for a week or two. Sad enough, that mentality has caused me to gain over 50 pounds. I lost 30. Gained 10 recently. So here I am. I want to loose 40 pounds. I have struggle with my weight for too long. I believe this is the lifestyle for me. I love fruits and veggies. I just really need the support.

Re: Need support

You got it!! I have been on it for Two months, have lost 11 pounds....It is amazing..it WORKS!! I need to lose 35-40 pounds also...so we can support each other. Just make sure you pre plan your meals...I love soups, so I make a huge pot of soup on Sundays with different beans- red, lima, chick, kidney, black any combination depending on my mood...I add corn, lentils, cabbage, bok choy, carrots and natural spices...it is amazing...lasts me all week. Have it for lunch every day pretty much. I cook Uncle Ben Brown rice with beans or mixed veggies..natural spices to taste with veggie burgers and thats my dinner most days...smoothies, naturally blended fruits with soy milk are delicious and I add some flaxseed.....I have lost a total of 20 INS. I work out at least 5 days for a minimum of 40 minutes. You can do it and it is SOOO easy!!

phase one - advice

Hi all
I have ordered the book and am awaiting delivery. In the meantime I have started the phase one. Please help answer my questions:
1. Can I use fat-free milk instead of skim milk?
2. What the portion size of the legumes/beans?
3. Can I use soya brugers instead of tofu and whats the portion size?
4. I got this list from the internet : 1. Phase I - Detox - This phase lasts 9 days. In this phase you will eat mostly fruits and vegetables. The idea is to cleanse your body of junk and you eliminate things like alcohol and caffeine. You can eat all the fruits & veggies you want except white potatoes and avocados. You also can have the following: legumes/beans & tofu, 1 cup of oatmeal, 2 cups of brown rice, 2 cups lowfat or 1% milk, 2 6oz yogurts and 4 eggwhites (eggbeaters) only water & 2 cups of herbal tea to drink. You also get a very limited amount of olive oil dressing to use : Is this for one day or do you share it through the 9 days?

You can email me : lisa.janakk@gmail.com

Many thanks
Lisa Janakk

HANG IN THERE!!!

I am impressed by all of you! This diet is not for me but for those who are on it, hang in there till you reach your goal!!!

If you have already lost some pounds, remember how it was before you lost it or how hard it was to reach your current weight so that you won't slip up and get discourage.

If you slip up, don't get discouraged. Get right back on it.

My only advice is try to get a check-up if you haven't already. It may give you an incentive to stick to the end.

Congratulations on coming this far, wherever you are right now. Don't go back!!!

Headaches

I gtt them, too, and they lasted for days in the initial week of the detox. Just think of all the things we're purging our bodies of - caffeine, refined sugar, artificial sweeteners, excess sodium, fatty foods, etc. And think of all the processed foods that aren't 'food' at all - they're the product of food science - things that don't exist in nature. No wonder my head hurts - it's like coming off a food/chemical hangover!

Newly Motivated

I just started the fat smash diet. Today is my 4th day. I an doing well so far. I have not cheated and proud of that. I am really missing soda. I have been drinking water which is newto me because I never liked it. I'm getting used to it but still missing sodas and juices. I also am missing meats, especially with my family and friends being able to eat whatever they want; i am tempted a lot by them, but im holding strong for now. I can't wait until detox is over just for one soda and a piece of chicken. Suprisingly I'm not missing the sweets because I'm used to eating late night sweets, but instead i just grab a piece of fruit, it's working. I need support from you guys, especially since my family and friends are not a big help :-) Wish me luck and good luck to you all.

Stage 2 now

I am on Day 12 of the program, which puts me in Stage 2. I would like to lose about 25 pounds. I found Stage 1 Detox both easy and hard. The first 3 days were hard because I had a terrible headache (and sick to my stomach) the entire time. I believe it was due to not having any caffeine (I lived on coffee and diet coke!). Also, at times I craved meat. For the most part, it was an easy diet. I'm glad I can now have a cup of coffee and small portions of meat, chicken, and fish. I feel more energized now.

Doing well mainting diet

I bought the EXTREME fat smash diet book by mistake instead of the first version. In cycle one it does say that you can have up to 2 diet sodas and 1 cup of coffee. I am on day 4 and I have been pushing myself to walk. I just throw on my ipod and walk close to 3 miles. He does mention cardio, but I wonder if me walk is good enough. I am walking at a good speed. Anybody have any input. I also know that he said that you should lose 4 ibs a week......can you lose more than that? I am not rushing it, I just wonder, because I am eating strickly by the book and I have not done that ever. I have cut out Alcohol and alot of fattening foods. Can anyone help me out with this?

Curves Workout

I used to be a circuit coach and I did the workout along with the members, and even though I don't work there anymore I am still a member. The new monitors they have called SMART is like a personal coach and it tells you how many calories you burned after you finish a workout. The more overweight you are the more calories you burn. I was about 250 lbs. and I usually burned 500-600 calories per workout. Members who weighed up to 190 usually burned 300-400 calories, but it really depends on the person.

I am on day 3 of Phase 1, I didn't know how to stop the candy or the meat but now at day 3 I love it and I am not hungry, I found soy breakfast sausage, I just brown it and throw in 3 egg whites and some seasoning. It was delicious. Today I am going to saute some tofu in a WOK and add egg whites, brown rice, and veggies for some serious stir fry. I haven't weighed myself. I don't think I am going to lose any weight during phase 1 because I did a chemical detox about two weeks ago but I still love this eating.

how to eat

In phase 1 do you eat all the required portions in one day? I am on my second day of phase 1 and I am not sure if i am doing it right. Where it says 4 egg white 1 cup oatmeal etc the book states "per day". I am not sure if this means i have a choice of eating these on different days or throughout the day. Can someone share what they do so I can be less confused. Also do i have 4 egg whites in one sitting or through out the day?

I just started Phase I and I am on Day 3, but the list of food is a daily amount. There is a note in the book that states you can eat all the food daily, but discourages it. Eat until you are satisfied and do not skip any meals even if you are not hungry. I haven't weighed myself...I am going to wait until day 10 and will keep you posted. Stay strong, you can do it!

Fat Smash Diet is a SUCCESS

Hi All,

I'm on day 6 of Phase 1 and have NEVER felt better. I heard about Fat Smash from a friend. I've been blaming the 110 pounds I've gained in 9 years on my husband and realize that I no longer recognize the woman in the pictures.

Upon reading the testimonials on FatSmash.com, I decided that I too could incorporate Dr. Ian's diet plan for a lifelong committment. I have tried Phentermine, South Beach, Metablolife; all with very time-limited success. This is the first plan I've utilize that REALISTICALLY works. I honestly believe that if I can do this, anyone can.

I've lost 12 pounds in 6 days. My husband has lost 8 and 2 friends at work have lost 10 and 8. I'm hoping to lose ALL 110 pounds by my 30th birthday,
7-24-10.

Good luck to everyone!!!

Hi...started FSD on August 6 but sadly I didn't keep up with it...cheated once, twice and then just kinda gave up...not on the concepts completely because I have been eating alot better since I started back on the journey to change my lifestyle and my body...but...seeing all the stories of the people who did (really DID) FSD and the amazing results...I've only lost about 3.5 pounds and it's almost a month already...that could be discouraging...I'm kinda angry with myself that I didn't stick with it....so...trying to find the motivation to start again from Phase 1...God help me!

Am I heavy enough for this diet?

Really weird question i know, but here's the thing.. I'm not exactly overweight, i'm about 130 and 5'7 but i really want to lose about 10-15 pounds but i know its difficult to lose weight the heavier you are and i'm afraid that this diet will make me eat more than i eat now as opposed to less. I would hate to gain weight on a diet. So i wanted to know if i would lose weight with the fat smash diet or if i should do that other "extreme", i belive, fat smash diet, I haven't heard much about it. Thankss

That's a good question 1:00 AM

I think you can try Phase I and see how it goes for you. I highly doubt that you will gain weight while on the diet. My problem was not being able to go through the detox for the full 9 days - I was craving carbs so bad that I ended up gaining after I went off the diet.

I just finished phase 1 and lost 11.5 pounds. Looking forward to phase 2. Does anyone know what phase you can add tortillas to? I know flour tortillas will probably be in the last phase, but what about corn tortillas and how many at once?

Fat Smash Diet

I tried the fat smash diet 2 years ago for a contest and lost about 17 pounds in less than 2 months. I won $300. I want to do it again, but need more recipes. The books has a recipe for phase 1 that has cheese as an ingredient and cheese is not allowed on phase 1. Did Dr. Ian Smith read his own book before publishing it?

Well - I actually think about trying out the fat smash diet since I have tried out a lot of other diet forms so far, that actually didn't work with me, unfortunately. I mainly try sticking to the five best low calorie foods in order to get the best possible results from the diet including a heavy work out three times a week - maybe if I include more sport, my body will get better and I will feel a little bit more beautiful.

49lbs Lost!

I started the Fat Smash diet in December and saw such great results in Phase 1 that I did it for 18 days instread of 9. During those 18 days I lost 20lbs. I was doing the diet, but I was NOT working out. After that I moved to Phase 2 and started jogging 3-4 miles daily. In 4 months I've lost 49lbs. I went from a women's size 20 to a size 12 and they are starting to fit loose! Fat Smash works if you stick to it! Make it a lifestyle change instead of just the diet and you'll be successful.


By the way, I didn't buy the book or get it from the library. I used all free online tips and fat smash receipe forums to succeed.

fat smash totally works. It is a variation of Dr. Joel Fuhrman's advice, but made accessible. Ian Smith is the real deal!
