Fat Smash Diet






Summary


Detox for 9 days, eating mainly fruits. Then, eat 4-5 meals a day and exercise.


Description


Initially, during the 9 day detox, you eat mainly just fruits and vegetables. Then, you shift to allowing more foods. You are allowed to eat vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, seafood, lean meat, and sugar substitutes. You avoid sweets, alcohol, refined grains, fried food, fatty meats, and fatty salad dressings.

Regular exercise is a big part of this diet as well.

You don't have to count calories and you aren't limited in how much you eat. Though, overeating is not recommended.


History


The "Fat Smash Diet" was created by Dr. Ian Smith who has a strong history in the media. He's the a medical contributor on ABC's "The View", a medical columnist for Men's Health magazine, and the diet expert on VH1's "Celebrity Fit Club." He has also been on various radio show and written articles for major newspapers and magazines. He has degrees from Harvard, Columbia, and University of Chicago (medical school).


Criticism


The idea of "detoxing" has no scientific meaning or basis. The book contains recipes, but some have too much salt.

Plain regular oatmeal with a drop of honey or stevia is better than the instant and they are both natural

No canned veggies as they have lost much of the nutrtional value, raw is best but if you want it cooked steamed is great

Whole eggs and eat just the white I am sure you could but that seems like a lot of work

Beans :I eat all of them. i cook them mostly but if I do use a can i wash them pretty well as they are full of sodium

No butter No sugar olive oil is good try this salad dressing :olive oil 1 tblsp /red wine vinegar 2 tbs 1 clove of garlic oregano salt pepper and a squeeze of lemon

use hot sauce in the brown rice good luck

Green smoothies helped me through phase one....

One of the best recipes I had was

2 bananas
1 pear
1 royal gala apple
1 handful of spinach (sounds weird but the smoothie will not taste like spinach)
ice (can add milk or water)
blend....blend blend

You can get your sweet tooth satisfied, 5 servings of fruits and veggies, and another way to eat fruit.

Forgot to check in last week, but lost 4 lbs. last week and 4 lbs. this week. That brings my grand total to 58 lbs. gone in 9 weeks!! YAY!! I tried a new recipe last night for Black Bean Burgers, it was delicious!!

LOW CALORIE BLACK BEAN BURGERS

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 18 minutes

Ingredients:
•1 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
•1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
•1 large egg, beaten
•2 Tbsp dried onion flakes
•1 tsp worcestershire sauce
•1/2 tsp ground black pepper
•1 Tbsp canola oil
•4 whole-wheat hamburger buns
•Toppings (optional)
•Lettuce leaves
•Sliced tomato
•Sliced onion
•Sliced pickle
•Catsup
•Mustard

Preparation:
1. Place the black beans in a medium-sized bowl. With the back of a fork, partially mash the beans until they are able to be shaped into a patty. Add the breadcrumbs, egg, worcestershire sauce, and black pepper, and mix together well.

2. Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

3. Use 1/4 of the bean mixtue for each patty. Shape each portion into patties that are about 3/4-inch thick.

4. Place the patties into the skillet, and cook on each side about 4 mintues, or until the patties becomes lightly browned and are firm.

5. Serve each patty on a whole wheat bun, and finish off with the burger toppings you desire.

Serves 4


I made my burger on a toasted whole wheat sandwich thin with mustard, topped with 2 tablespoons salsa and 3 Claussen sandwich slices pickles. Yummmy!! I used 100% Natural olive oil Pam instead of oil, spraying the pan first, cooking 1 side, and lightly spraying patties again before turning over. Make patties thin and keep heat med-low to make cooking / turning easier and patties intact. I had a sliced cucumber in vinegar along with it & can't wait to have another burger tonight.

I've been looking now at other veggie burger recipes online I'd like to try. If anyone has any favorite recipes, please share... THANKS!!

Hi Everyone...
I lost 5lbs after detox and gained it all back :( I was stressed out and plus my monthy was about to start. Around that time I am hungry all of the time. I am about to get back on the ball again.
CarrieMom: I am 210 now..I so need motivation to get under 200! Congrats to you! I actually used to weigh 231 as of last october but I have a lot more weight to lose. If I can get to 199, I will be happy and continue to lose until I become the size I need to be. I am about to start phase one again. Congratulations to everyone else that is losing weight!

That is Awesome Carriemom! I have to be honest, I get bored easily with food. I became so bored with beans, brown rice and salad! lol! I dont eat eggs or any type of nuts so that will limit me a bit. I saw different recipe's on this site that I have copied and printed. I am hoping that will get me back on track. I am planning to start on Monday. Was there any particular foods/ recipe's that you liked and stuck with. I also have the fatsmash book which I've had since 2006 or 07.
Just as you stated, you have slipped and got back on...I slipped and kept on slipping. But I will be back! lol

Thanks for the motivation!!

I had attempted this diet three times before and never made it past day 2 of phase 1. I finally got a car and from not walking everywhere I went from 280 to 330pounds.(the biggest I have ever been). I am currently on day 5 of detox and been going to the gym everyday. The only issue I have is I'm craving soup for some strange reason any ideas of what I can do to make that go away. I misplaced my book so Im not sure is chicken broth allowed?

TM thanks for the info. Since it specifically states that you can't have white potatoes but not the others, I am going to assume we are allowed. Michelle and to everyone else who has a hard time getting breakfast together in the mornings, I have a great recipe for you. Since I am not a big yogurt and fruit person, I make fruit smoothies to get my servings. I basically blend one banana, some blueberries, half an orange juiced, a few slices of mango (if I have any) and about 1/4 cup of light vanilla yogurt with about 8 cubes of ice and 1/4 cup of water. It's very filling and delicious!! I use the magic bullet blender. Best $40 blender I've ever bought! Let me know if you try the smoothie and if you like it.

Michelle- I get bored easily as well..I am really trying to get through these 9 days. Yesterday was my first day..again :( ...I just make sure I have enough food to last me througout my work day. This morning, I drank my smoothie which is similiar to Mary L's. I just ate a bowl of oatmeal which I put pieces of a banana in to give it some sweetness and a few sliced strawberries. At 12, I will eat my chili flavored beans over brown rice and around 3, I will have a plain salad with a few tablespoons of dressing. I also have a fruit cup that I may eat in a few minutes.
I think the hardest part for me is the weekends because I am constantly on the road and sometimes do not have food packed. Maybe this weekend, I will stay home..lol
Mary L..I am going to have to look into buying that Bullet blender...Unfortunately, I spend a fortune on that montell williams blender and it acts as if its on its last leg.

TM- I have a great snack for you! Preheat your oven to 400. Take a can of garbanzo beans and drain it very well. Place the beans in a big bowl. Add a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, and a splash of lemon or lime. Get a cookie sheet and spray a little non stick cooking spray on it. Place the beans on the cooking sheet and bake until about 20 mins or more. The beans should look dried up but not to the point where they are hard rock like peanuts. take it out of the oven and cool for a bit. Then eat with your fingers!! It's a great filling snack and totally guilt free!! Good luck and let me know if you get the bullet. totally worth every penny.

I have found so many great low calorie, low fat vegetarian recipes that I've been trying, at least one every week, sometimes 2 or 3. I've had no trouble making a variety of delicious, healthy meals, and really enjoying this way of eating so much more than the unhealthy eating habits that led to my being so overweight.

Things are so easy now, I'm thoroughly enjoying my diet, trying delicious new recipes every week from vegetariantimes.com, and I have no cravings or desire to stray off my plan. I cleaned out my closet of all the clothes that no longer fit, which is basically everything! I loaded it all up and took it to the Salvation Army to donate, I'm NEVER going back to those sizes! Luckily I have a few things that I held onto as I gained weight, in different sizes, so I can wear some of that now. I went to an event Saturday night and saw people that I hadn't seen since I started my plan, everyone's reaction made me feel SO good! And for the first time in many years, I didn't hide from the camera and actually enjoyed seeing a picture of myself. My motivation is at an all-time high!! Nothing's preventing me from reaching my goal!!

Hello there...to everyone. After losing some weight on my own (23lbs)4months, I decided- I would like to kick my weight loss up a notch so that it is more consistent and efficient. So Monday August 30th 2010, I started the Fat Smash Detox Phase 1, and found a dvd in my house that would help me SHRED FAT in 30 days lol. Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, and the Fat Smash Diet has been very nice to me. Also, I walk 3 minles to work in the mornings after I do my Jillian workout. I HAVE BEEN KICKING MY A**. But it's going to be so worth it. So far, i've magically lost 7lbs in 4 days. I cheated by stepping on the scale, but what I saw motivated me even more. FYI, what Im doing is not easy. But I am not starving myself and I am pushing my body to the limit and getting plenty of rest. Im very healthy and feel great and energized in the mornings.

I want to start this new way of eating but I have one question: Would it be ok to use Quinoa instead of Brown Rice?

I started school again and have not been on here but I am down to 286 now and I might go back to phase 1, because school has cut into my gym time but I'm not eating anywhere near the way I use to. I feel so much better and I know I should not have took this a compliment but one of the customers in my work said you lost so much weight are you sick.

Hey all ! What a lovely forum, I just started the diet 4 days back, I am on day 4 of phase 1 ! Feels good. Had a severe headache as I am a tea person. So I do cheat on that and have a cup of tea on morning and eve. Had to cheat as it wud have been impossible to continue with that crazy headache. I do have tomato soup,I think that's allowed right? It's great to read all the success stories here,what a motivation! For the oatmeal pizza can I use canneleni beans and instant oatmeal? If yes then do I cook the instant oatmeal first? Do let me know! Keepitup allof you and hang on!

I was wondering about tomato soup also. I loose one pound a day on the first phase! I do drink coffee, 2-3 cups per day with sweetner and ff creamer. If I dont, I get a terrible headache. Also eat hummus and veggie burgers.

I am on day 9 of Detox and I have lost 10 pounds. I am not going to phase 2 just yet, I am gong to stay on detox for another week and a half.. Maintain a variety of fruits and veggies. Use garlic powder. I love sliced zuchini and yellow squash mixed with a can of rotel. It's delicious.
Just stick to it and plan your meals. I try to keep some food in a tubberware just incase I get hungry and need something right away. I also went to my Dr. and he gave me a perscription of phentermine. That helps alot with cravings and energy. I walk to the high school track and I divide 1 lap into 4's and run a 4th then walka 4th then run and I do that for 4 laps and walk home. It's awazing how I feel and the way my skin looks after I put forth some effort.
Good luck to you all!

Also Fry's (in AZ) has a yogurt called CarbMaster. It's 6 oz, 80 cal, 1.5 fat, 100mg sodium, 4 carbs, 3 sugars, 12 protein. Assorted flavors. I eat yogurt and a fruit for breakfast, I snack on carots/celery. I made a pot of kidney beans, add salt and water and put it in the crock pot all day. Red bell peppers in a skillet with pam and garlic powder, butternut squash 360 degrees, in a glass dish with an inch of water covered with foil, 1 hour. Eggplant with pam and garlic powder and minimal garlic salt, brown rice, asaragus in oil with garlic powder..
There are so many varieties of veggies with spices to create. Just experiment and make extras to store and bring to lunch the following day. Sugarless gum helps alot and keeps your breath fresh =) also try an water pill, walmart has over the counter or your Dr. will prescribe they are $3.. Drink plenty of water and after a couple days your body will only want the water.

What is a water pill?
Analyce's Mom
posted 17-Nov-2010 2:41pm

It helps rid access water weight, make you go to the bathroom a lot. Will help with weight loss. Go to your dr and tell them you are dieting a drink tons of water and you feel bloated all the time, they might feel your ankles and give you a water pill. Nanul- I saw you only lost 12 pounds, jump back to phase 1 for 10 days and you will shock your body. Change up your eating and don't get in a routine of eating the same foods..

Hi! Wow, what a great forum! I think I am going to try to start Fat Smash on Sunday (January 2nd). I have had so much family here over the holidays, that in reality I knew I should wait till after they all leave! smile I am currently 33 years old, 5'4 and weigh 150lbs. My goal is to be in the 130s by June (going on a trip to Peru). I have lost weight in the past, but after having my daughter (who is now 2 1/2), it has been much more difficult. I am going to buy the book and read up this weekend, then (hopefully with this forum's help) I am going to DO IT!!!!!! Any hints or tricks or advise before I start? I am up for anything! I can only make it to the gym 4 (maybe 5) times a week. I hope that is enough! I plan on using a lot of your recipes in this forum too! THanks!

Hi,

I am on day 3 of the detox phase and am feeling somewhat weak. I very much miss coffee - to which I was a severe addict. I have a few questions for those who have been at this a while:

Is fat free half and half okay to add to tea?
Does anyone know if chai (the teabags, not store blended) have caffiene content?
Is anyone else really tired early in the evening at this stage?

And finally, I would love a buddy to email back and forth with. If someone is interested, let me know and I will post my email address. Thanks!

Hello everyone!

I am currently on day 9 of my FS diet. It was really hard at first, but it has gotten a lot easier. I started off at 266 pounds. Hopefully, I have dropped some. I refused to check my weight early. I want to make sure my hard work pays off. I started this diet with my mom, so I felt like I had a little support. She started a day before I did. She didn't make it. Now, I am doing it on my own, and I feel amazing. I work out on my Wii. I have Wii Active. It gives me a great full body work out. So, I am going to continue with that. I wish all of you guys luck with your weight loss and hopefully I will post my success story soon!

I do have a question. I don't eat beef or pork, so my preferred choice is usually ground turkey. Since I am moving to Phase II soon, I wanted to know if ground turkey is acceptable. It isn't mentioned anywhere in the book, and turkey bacon and turkey sausage don't show up until Phase III.

Best Wishes!

I haven't been on here in quite a while, but I just passed my 1 year mark since starting the diet on March 7. I've lost 132 lbs in a year!! I was total vegetarian, then the last 3 months I was eating seafood, but this week I decided to eliminate it again. I seem to have been not losing anything since I added the seafood back in, I just stalled out. I still have 68 lbs to lose to reach my goal. I'm starting back from the beginning this Sunday with the detox, I need to shake things up and see the number on that scale go down again!

First day on the diet. So far it's okay - am hungry, and had a headache until I gave in and had one cup of coffee. I have 60 lbs to lose to get back down to my pre-married weight. Have had two babies in the last 3 years and the weight isn't coming off very easily. Hoping this diet works for me! I haven't been able to find a great forum and there doesn't seem to be a lot of activity on this one. Anyone have other forums they frequent?

@Ms.Kee, it is going very well. I am happy I will be finished with phase one 2 days before Easter. Congrats on losing 8 pounds that is great! I am planning now what to eat for Easter that will be within phase 2 guidelines so that I dont have to start phase 1 again but if dont stay within the guidelines its good to know I can just do phase 1 again... hopefully that will motivate me to not cheat:)

We do the same thing for Easter and I am bringing the turkey and a fruit salad, my sister in law is bringing greens. I should be fine with that and maybe a little sweet potatoes. Well Ms. Kee have a Happy Easter and hope to hear from you on Monday to see how you did. I am on day 9 today and cant wait to weigh myself tomorrow, one thing that I have noticed changed a lot since the first day of fs is that my appetite has decreased tremendously....anyone else experience that???
