The Fat Smash Diet – Healthy Lifestyle

If you have been following my blog, you already know that I am very impressed with The Fat Smash Diet, and love following all the phases at least once every year, with very rewarding results.

Some people think it is too harsh (no coffee or alcohol for 9 days…wow…), but it is perfect for my taste and my lifestyle.

The holidays are over (I have been really bad); the cookies and chocolates are gone…or almost gone: the three-way mirror and the scale are not my best friends at the moment, so the Fat Smash Diet comes back to life.

My most effective motivating factor for The Fat Smash diet this year, are several very special events I will be attending later on this spring…so it’s perfect time to clean up my act, and start eating healthy again.

At the beginning of this week I began Phase I, and hoping that some of you will join me on this journey of healthy eating, and fitness.

In preparation for this journey, I shopped for the staple foods used in Phase I:

  • Fresh fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Brown rice
  • Chickpeas
  • Veggie burgers
  • Low fat milk
  • Low fat cheese
  • Saltines
  • Nuts
  • Low fat yogurt
  • Hummus
  • Lots of water

Have you noticed there is:

  • No pasta
  • No bread
  • No white rice
  • No potatoes
  • No meat or fish
  • No coffee
  • No sugar
  • No chocolate

These “NO foods” are excluded during the Detox Period – Phase I of the Fat Smash Diet, which lasts only 9 days.

Many of these “NO foods” get slowly introduced back into the daily menu, as we progress further into the other phases.

You may click on the links below, for a closer overview of the different phases and foods of the The Fat Smash Diet.

Phase I – Detox (only 9 days)

Phase II –  Foundation (3 weeks)

Phase III – Construction (4 weeks)

Phase IV – The Temple  (for Life)

I love The Fat Smash Diet, because it is NOT a real diet, but rather a healthy lifestyle.

My body feels so much lighter and energetic after only few days of following the Phase I regimen.

Healthy Lifestyle also means keeping your body in motion, hence the need to dedicate at least 30 minutes per day to some type of physical activity, which for me is outdoor walking, stretching , and exercising on the elliptical machine.

The Fat Smash Diet book has a variety of recipes, some of which I tested and posted previously (see links below).

I am looking forward to hear your comments, please.

Thank  you.

    “Doctor’s orders”……this is what the author of this book, Dr. Ian Smith, felt was a suitable food during this period of detox.

    Good luck Momma! Maybe I will start this next week, just not sure how I can skip the caffeine without headaches. 🙁

    Thank you for posting this! 🙂

    Thank you very much!! I understand how coffee could be a tough thing to give up….even if only for 9 days…but it is “mind over matter”…
    I hope I will have some company on this journey…..”the more the merrier”
