Diets are made to go on and off of, and if you're like most people--who want to be fit, lean, alert and healthy--you don't want to diet. You want to eat naturally and normally, in a way that helps you have the body and lifestyle you deserve to enjoy. In EAT, Dr. Ian Smith has created a blueprint for you ...

"With EAT, Dr. Ian Smith has created a diet book in the flexible spirit of Mireille Guiliano's French Women Don't Get Fat or Michael Pollan's The Food Rules: it doesn't dictate quantities, portion sizes or verboten foods. Instead, it intelligently and persuasively lays out the ten simple rules anyone can internalize and follow in any situation for stress-free weight loss and lifetime maintenance. Dr. Ian's rules are straight-forward and simple: once a reader understands why whole wheat bread is almost nutrition-free, but whole grain bread is a magic food; why soda--both regular and diet--can sabotage any diet; why "diet" food may be having a distinctly non-dietetic effect, EAT will become their bible. Fans everywhere will ask each other: "You look thinner--are you doing EAT?" Dr. Ian's Ten Simple Rules for Good Eating: - Choose Color - Go Organic Only Selectively - What's the Natural State? - Size Matters - Gorge at the Protein Bonanza - Tap the Power of Awesome Carbs - Taste Matters - Sharpen Your X-Ray Eye for Hidden Calories - Whole Grains All the Time - Drink Smart (Don't Let Liquids Wash Out Your Good Eating)"--

America has lost millions of pounds following Dr. Ian Smith's Fat Smash diets. Now, Smith has developed a program that allows readers to avoid the normal pitfalls of dieting: boredom, no treats allowed, too much repetition, plateauing. The 4 Day Diet is a program of four-day modules: Induction (detox/cleansing); Transition (to reintroduce all food groups); Protein Stretch (to avoid plateaus); Smooth (allowing some formerly forbidden foods like pizza and French fries); Push (the sprint just before the final stretch, back to a stricter eating plan); Pace (a comfortable module to catch your breath); and Vigorous (to lose those last few pounds). You can follow it straight through, or you can customize your own program. After the first two modules, you can do the remaining five in whichever order suits your schedule or preferences or you can repeat modules. Includes over sixty recipes and a snack list.--From publisher description.
