Dr. Ian Smith helps you drop pounds with his Shred Power Cleanse

Move over green smoothie! The Purple Smoothie is now taking center stage! Dr. Ian Smith, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling SHRED and SUPER SHRED diets, has created a powerful two-week detox program that will help anyone “hit the reset button” to lose weight, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and feel GREAT. THE SHRED POWER CLEANSE’s signature drink, the Purple Power Detox Smoothie, is loaded with antioxidant- and phytonutrient-packed super foods to help maintain a healthy liver–the body’s major detox organ.

THE SHRED POWER CLEANSE is unique because it doesn’t consist exclusively of drinks, but incorporates salads, soups and snacks as well. It also requires exercise, another important way for the body to eliminate toxic substances. As a bonus, it also includes a Weekend Power Cleanse–a quick, three-day program, designed to cleanse the system after a week of indulging, and not eating or drinking at our best.

Though long suspicious of cleanses and detox programs as unhealthy, Dr. Ian conducted his own research and began to wonder if there could be a safe, non-deprivational way to help the body keep our systems clean and toxin-free, using foods that are natural healers and health promoters. Using the principle of “let food be thy medicine,” he designed a program with three key principles in mind:

1. It’s accessible–the foods and ingredients called for are not rare or difficult to find

2. It’s realistic–the smoothies and shakes are tasty and full of a broad range of flavors, and are extremely easy to make.

3. It’s flexible–it can fit well into other types of programs, whether vegetarian, vegan, paleo or anything else

THE SHRED POWER CLEANSE’s two-week program consists of nutrient-rich smoothies and shakes, along with one solid meal option and 2 snacks per day. With more than fifty recipes for smoothies, shakes and salads as well as suggested exercises and a carefully scheduled 2-week meal plan, THE SHRED POWER CLEANSE draws from the basic principles of Dr. Ian’s bestselling SHRED and Super SHRED diets.
