In SUPER SHRED, Dr. Ian distills his successful diet plan into a concentrated, shorter program. It’s a “destination diet,” for the goal-oriented person who wants faster, more dramatic results right away, and those who have a specific target they need to reach by a certain date—a beach vacation, a reunion, a wedding, or a doctor’s orders to lose weight quickly for health reasons. In other words, this is a “crash” diet, but one that is completely healthy, flexible, and effective and doesn’t involve the unhealthy extreme measures that rapid diets typically demand.
