A Lifestyle plan that works regardless of age or size,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Shred: The Revolutionary Diet: 6 Weeks 4 Inches 2 Sizes (Hardcover)
SHRED has changed my life in a dramatic way. Before I started SHRED I was on another program where I had lost 40 pounds and had been on a plateau for over a month. I started with Shred in August while following Dr. Ian on twitter and here I am in December 45 pounds lighter and beginning to live the best years of my life. I am 54 years old and have never felt this great as far back as I can remember and I am talking at least for the past 25 to 30 years. This is no joke, my health has taken a dramatic turn, I went from high cholesterol (265 highest ever) now to 188, high blood pressure to normal blood pressure, size 24/26 to size 18/16, pre-diabetes to normal glucose levels and from basically no exercising (use to hate it) to exercising at least 6 days a week. Shredding has taught me what is the best and healthiest way to eat when I am eating out and my portions have become smaller. I am never hungry cause I am in the habit of eating 4 small meals a day plus my snacks. The foods you eat are affordable and found in your local grocery stores. There are no gimmicks or quick fix with Shred, it's a way of life and something you can live with everyday. This is a plan that I have incorporated in my household and now we all are eating healthier, working out together and living a healthier lifestyle. The book is easy to read, the instructions are easy to follow. My first month on Shred I had lost 27 pounds which is a miracle and this was done by eating 4 small meals a day plus healthy snacks and starting with cardio (walking, Zumba and elliptical). I would highly recommend this book to those who want to live a healthier life, eating the right way and the benefits will be 20 pounds in 6 weeks. It works and the awesome thing about Shred, it is affordable and all foods are easily accessible. I am no celebrity, a single middle class mom/grandmother who took the wisdom of Dr. Ian and made it worked for me. By this summer I plan on being at my goal weight and intend on keeping it off because I have found a plan that I love and enjoy doing. The book is worth buying and you will find it useful as you pursue your dream of being a healthier/slimmer person. Get the book and start shredding.

Thank you for reminding me that I am not alone with the age/weight perception. I have found that hope always shows up just when you need it!

This was originally intended for you and posted it for the " A Lifestyle plan that works regardless of age or size". However, if firs you both perfectly.

I have been using this book coupled with a few other low fat recipes to lose 37 pounds in the last 5 months. I will meet my target weight within 3 months. I have attached links below in case anyone is interested.

This very same review, word for word, is on Barnes and Noble's web site. I find this very interesting.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that. It's a review on a product and doesn't have to appear only where it was purchased. I bought a new kitchen faucet online and posted my review to both Home Depot and Lowes where it could also be found.

Looked at this booko and it appears the sample recipes are full of cheese. While that sounds yummy, how lowfat can it be?

It's actually very shady since the word for word review appears from a different name yet there is a quote from "Beverly" in the Editorial reviews which is who the above review is from.
