FAQ about the Shred Diet
Q: “How long do you do this for?”
A: The Shred Diet lasts exactly 6 weeks and there are no “break days/cheat days”
Q:Do you have to work out with the diet?
A: Yes, it requires light cardio at least 5 times a week…much of which is about 30-45 minute timeframes
Q: What kind of food do you eat?
A: That’s the great thing about this “diet”…the food is plentiful and typically is what you may be eating already. A normal day could look like this:
Meal 1: 1 bowl of oatmeal, 1 cup of non concentrated juice, and a piece of fruit
Snack 1: 100 calorie snack
Meal 2: Chicken or turkey sandwich on 100% whole wheat bread (1 tsp of mayo or mustard allowed) with lettuce, tomato and 1 slice of chesse, salad with fat free dressing (no croutons or bacon bits)
Snack 2: 100 calories or less
Meal 3: 1 bowl of soup (no potatoes or cream) and 1 serving of veggies or fruit.
Snack 3: 100 calories or less
Meal 4: Choose from: 5 ounce piece of fish, chicken or turkey (no skin, no frying), 1 serving of veggies and a 1/2 cup of cooked brown or white rice.
Now what I just put on here…are simply ONE option from the Shred diet…often times you will have about 3-4 options to choose from for EACH meal.
Q: How long did it take for you to notice a difference?
A: I’d say right around the end of week 3 is when my pants began to sag (lol)…but via my scale…the pounds became to come off in week 1.
Q: Is it expensive to maintain?
A: Not at all…I spend no more on groceries now than I have in the past…be mindful that organic products are more expensive..but they are not required for this diet.
Q: Where can I find this book and for how much?
A: You can find it in Target or on Amazon for about 15-18 dollars.
Q: Will I gain the weight back after I finish the diet?
A: The Shred diet is set up to help you maintain eating healthy for the rest of your life…the routines and meal planning are now embedded in my head and I don’t see how I could reverse the ways I eat now.
