You can follow The 4 Day Diet straight through for a month for stunning results. But Smith also designed The 4 Day Diet so you can customize your own program. After the first two modules, you can do the remaining 5 in whichever order suits your schedule or preferences or you can repeat the modules you like best. It also features over sixty delicious recipes for breakfasts, lunches and dinners and a complete snack list - food that will make you forget you're on a diet.
Apparently I missed the reference guide that came with the book. Customer service sent me an email letting me know that I missed it. I'm much happier now!

This is a great diet because the food keeps rotating. You don't get bored and want to quit. I have been on it for three weeks and lose 12 pounds without feeling like I was dieting.

What would have made The 4 Day Diet better?
Having concrete guidelines for foods to eat instead of just broadly describing 8 different levels of 4 day diets and 8 chapters of why to diet, then never actually giving a diet or any food recommendations
What was most disappointing about Ian K. Smith’s story?
No specifics, just generic behavior modification ideas. He says the exact food is so important but never actually names one food to have on any of his diet levels. I think the audio performance just ignored the entire premise of the book.
How could the performance have been better?
Actually read every part of the book instead of making random references to CD's, etc that are not included with the audio book. Did not get one iota of information from listening to this second book by Ian Smith despite 4 hours of listening. Very frustrating. Maybe this is just a scam
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Anger, ripoff feeling
Any additional comments?
Too bad as it seems he did alot of research but didn't bother to convey any useful information in this production. Worthless purchase and I want my money back.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Specific details of the diet plan should have been readily available. The narration was fine and even enthusiastic but what foods are allowed and what foods aren't were not even stated. Instead, The listener was referred to another source for that info. In the end I had to go o the bookstore to look over the diet plan itself.
What could Ian K. Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
State the important information of what is allowed and emphatic is not.
Would you be willing to try another one of Ian K. Smith’s performances?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Clear and enthusiastic narration.
I like the fat smash so much better i lost 12 lbs with in 2 wks following the fat smash diet... i think this is about the same...
There nothing in the book that someone else has not written....
