IAN SMITH is the author of the no. 1 New York Times Bestsellers SHRED: THE REVOLUTIONARY DIET, and SUPER SHRED: The Big Results Diet. He is a co-host of the Emmy winning daytime talk show, The Doctors.
Dr. Smith served as the medical/diet expert for six seasons on VH1’s highly-rated Celebrity Fit Club, and is the founder of two major national health initiatives—the 50 Million Pound Challenge and the Makeover Mile—that have helped millions of people lose weight and improve their health.
A graduate of Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Chicago's Pritzker School of Medicine, Smith was appointed by President Obama in 2010 to the President's Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition.
Thousands have lost extraordinary amounts of weight on Ian Smith’s diets, and though we’ve included 40-50 recipes in each of his books, his dieters have asked for more. Since the SHRED programs include meals and meal replacements (smoothies or soups), there are over 200 recipes in THE SHRED DIET COOKBOOK, and lists of great snack ideas (smashed goat cheese and dates on crackers, avocado and mayo on pumpernickel, chicken and shredded carrot with yogurt dressing). THE SHRED DIET COOKBOOK is a complete answer to the question Dr. Ian is asked most often: "Can I eat that on SHRED?" Dr. Ian knows his audience: what they want to know and how much they are willing to work in the kitchen. He’s including nutritionally dense food to match up with the core tenets of meal spacing, meal replacement and snacking that have made the SHRED diets work so well for so many.In THE SHRED DIET COOKBOOK, readers get:
—more ideas for snacks than they’ll know what to do with
—over 75 all-new recipes for meal replacing smoothies and soups, including savory smoothies, warm smoothies, stews, and cold soups
—protein-rich dinners that are quick to make and satisfying to eat
—carb recipes that really count: including breakfast, potatoes, and pastas
—some reader-sourced recipes, Southern specialties and recipes from Ian’s family
—what to buy; how to work a supermarket; a spice and seasoning primer; alternates for frying, breading and saucing; and much more
