Dr. Ian Smith's diets really work. America has lost millions of pounds following his "Fat" "Smash" and "Extreme Fat Smash" diets. Now, in "The 4 Day Diet," Smith has developed a program that allows readers to avoid the normal (and fatal) pitfalls of dieting: boredom, no treats allowed, too much repetition, plateauing. "The 4 Day Diet" is an ingenious program of dieting modules lasting only four days each:

Induction (detox/cleansing)
Transition (to reintroduce all food groups)
Protein Stretch (to avoid plateaus)
Smooth (when you can have 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 for you to catch your breath)
Vigorous (the final module to lose those last few pounds)

You can follow "The 4 Day Diet" straight through for a month for stunning results. But Smith also designed "The 4 Day Diet" so you can customize your own program. After the first two modules, you can do the remaining 5 in whichever order suits your schedule or preferences or you can repeat the modules you like best. It also features over sixty delicious recipes for breakfasts, lunches and dinners and a complete snack list--food that will make you forget you're on a diet.

Full of Ian Smith's motivating tips and tricks and his smart, sensible eating advice that really works to take weight off fast, "The 4 Day Diet" is a diet you'll be able to stick to, have success on, and even enjoy
