Dr. Ian Smith's Four-Day Diet

Dr. Ian Smith's Four-Day Diet

Dr. Ian Smith of VH1's Celebrity Fit Club wants to help you lose weight and keep it off with his best-selling book called The Four Day Diet ($17). No, he doesn't mean you'll lose weight in only four days. He outlines a realistic and flexible schedule of how to rotate eating healthy, inexpensive foods every four days so you don't get bored. The variety keeps your appetite engaged, but it also keeps your metabolism high.

There are seven, four-day phases:

  1. Induction
  2. Transition
  3. Protein Stretch
  4. Smooth
  5. Push
  6. Pace
  7. Vigorous

To learn about what these mean, check out the video interview from ABC after you

Dr. Smith talks about how to deal with temptation, how to know what your triggers are that cause you to overeat or overindulge, and how important it is to be mentally ready to lose weight. This sounds like a refreshingly healthy approach to losing weight.
