Thinking of trying FS
 
I watch Celebrity Fit Club from time to time, and I noticed that they lose weight so quickly. I have been a little disappointed by my rate of progress, so I wanted to try Fat Smash. Just a couple of questions, if it's okay, before I spend my money on the book.

1 - Is Fat Smash or Extreme Fat Smash better? I so want to lose the weight as quickly as possible while still protecting my health and making it possible to maintain the loss.

2 - I eat almost exclusively vegan, and I do it for other reasons than just the health reasons (environmental, exploitation of poor nations, deforestation, etc.). Is it possible to do the Fat Smash and be vegan? (I understand Phase I is vegetarian?)

3 - Isn't Dr. Ian WAY cuter than Dr. Atkins?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Laurie

1. EFS is for losing 16-25 pounds and the original FS is for losing more than that, so you might want to start out with the original and see how that goes for you.

2. I am doing EFS and in that book he talks about vegetarian substitutions, but not vegan ones. I think that you could do that though, the main issue would be substituting some kind of equal amount of protein for the meat and something else for the yogurt/dairy that he calls for.

3. Never seen Dr. Atkins, but Dr. Ian is cute!

I am thinking about starting EFS also... but just to jump start me. I was curious about a couple things though -

A) Since no bananas are allowed in week 1, what else do you put in smoothies for that smooth texture?
B) I eat Activia yogurt everyday for my digestive system, but if yogurt isn't specified for that day, is it ok to have it anyway?

And Laurie, yes, Dr Ian is cute! :) lol

Thanks!

Thanks for the response, Quiltz. The original FS it is!

And, if you're interested, here's a link to an image of Dr. Atkins. I tried to paste an image here, but the Powers-That-Be refused to let me. Not bad, but not Dr. Ian!

I have no answer for question 1 (I use a premade protein shake). As for question 2, you probably could eat it as snack when not listed. It's worked well for me! Good luck

Thanks! That's a good idea to use it as a snack - that way I can eat it after I wake up before a workout. Also, where do you get premade protein shakes?

I get Slimfast High protein shakes (Chocolate) from Walmart. They are really smooth and don't taste as chalky as other shakes I've tried.
