Fat Smash Diet Program
Smith recommends eating as much as it takes to fill you up. The fruits and vegetables you eat must be eaten raw, steamed or grilled with minimal fat. You're allowed to brush grilled produce with a tiny amount of extra-virgin olive oil or use low-fat butter sprays on cooked vegetables.
You're also allowed 3 tablespoons of low-fat salad dressing on raw salads. All other foods, including meat, dairy and grains, are off limits during the Detox phase.
Physical activity is a key component of the Fat Smash Diet because you have to burn calories to shed excess pounds. During the Detox phase of the Fat Smash Diet, you're required to exercise daily. Smith recommends getting at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise at least five days a week with an after dinner walk of at least 25 minutes on most days.
The Fat Smash Diet is a technical eating plan that requires you to pay close attention to the clock. You'll need to eat four or five portions of fruits and vegetables, three hours apart. Smith also requires you to drink plenty of water since it has cleansing properties, too. Always ask your doctor before starting the first phase of the Fat Smash Diet to be sure it's right for you.
