The Fat Smash - The Fat Smash Diet was developed by Dr. Ian K. Smith. It gained popularity on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club where celebrities followed the plan and competed to lose weight.
The principle behind the name is that you achieve your weight-loss goals by smashing bad habits and misconceptions about diets. The diet follows a 90 day program in 4 phases - Detox, Foundation, Construction, and the Temple.
Phase 1 - Detox (9 days)
For the first 9 days the diet is essentially vegetarian eating fruits and veggies only and cleansing the body and mind of impurities in a natural way without fasting or putting any "bad" toxins into your system."
Phase 2 - Foundation (3 weeks)
Additional foods are allowed from a given list such as cold cereal, artificial sweeteners, and even a small amount of meat. Physical activity is increased.
Phase 3 - Construction (4 weeks)
Additional foods are allowed from a given list such as whole wheat pasta, bread, and desserts such as 2 cookies or a scoop of ice cream. Portion sizes increase maintaining plenty of fruit and vegetables.
Phase 4 - The Temple (remainder of the 90 days)
The last phase of the diet is aptly named the Temple, which is where you will stay for life. Most foods previously denied may now be included in limited quantities, and physical activity.
