The 4 Day Diet Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Dr. Ian demands big results from his diet plans: whether on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club, State Farm's 50 Million Pound Challenge or his numerous inspirational appearances across the country, his advice has helped countless numbers of dieters lose millions of pounds.
With over twenty years of experience watching how and why dieters lose weight—and how they don't—Dr. Ian developed a program that actually retrains the brain to diet naturally. In The 4 Day Diet, Dr. Ian distills that program into the acronym SMARTER:
--Sense of where you are: don't fool yourself about your habits and what kind of shape you're in
--Make realistic goals: don't sabotage your success by trying to do too much too fast
--Activate your motivational engine: learn how to be your own best diet coach
--Resist temptation: how to put yourself in an environment that supports your diet and keeps you disciplined
--Think thin: why visualization works
--Every bite counts: track your intake, but learn how to enjoy what you eat more at the same time
--Reward yourself: indulge yourself in small and big ways along the road to permanent weight loss

This is not a diet you can follow as a lifestyle, it is truly a diet. I was miserable and felt deprived the whole way through. No grains except brown rice for maybe 10 of the days and whole wheat bread with your sandwich another 6 days. You rarely get any meat or dairy - maybe 4 serving per week. This is the SALAD, veggie, fruit, and beans diet. I logged everything I ate into a calorie counter every single day, and this diet averaged 1100 calories a day, with some days as low as 600 calories - the highest days at 1300 calories. Other reviewers complained about the "fluff" at the beginning of the book, but I actually found that part useful. There is so much more to dieting than just calories in and calories out, despite what they tell you. He makes an attempt to help you get in the right mind set and build up your will power. You're gonna need it.
This diet has a very detailed list of what to do every day, without much explanation as to why it is that particular mix. If you want someone telling you what to do, without your understanding why, this is the diet for you. I found myself obsessing about every little thing, worrying whether or not I was doing ok, and beating myself up terribly when I slipped. I hate beans/legumes and just couldn't do it, so I tended to eat natural peanut butter instead. I also agree with other reviewers that the recipes are a waste, because he doesn't tell you which modules the recipes go with, and without understanding why you are supposed to eat whatever it is each day, I never used any of them.
I prefer diets that explain their rules. I also think 1100 calories or less on a regular basis will put you into starvation mode and slow down your metabolism. I am giving up on this diet and trying south beach supercharged instead. I have done Atkins before and it has worked for me but I think South Beach might be more livable long term. I am also intrigued by the concept of intermittent fasting and HIIT exercise - going to test those concepts as well.
one can use on their path to weight loss.
This requires a longer review, so I'll just
say that I like the cd format, for I listened
to it, while I was involved in other activities,
and it almost felt like it was a
Like the cd idea a lot....portable!!
