For the last two weeks I have been experimenting with a new diet plan. Something more strict than just plain “healthy eating”. Something designed to help you shed 12-15 lbs in 3 weeks. It’s a little something I refer to as Project Shred.
Basically this is a diet plan used by my extreme kickboxing instructor Barbara Woo to get her students in shape. The plan that I have been working with is meant for a female who is between 120-200 lbs, wants to weigh 130 or less, and wants to lose between 10-20 pounds quickly in a month.

As it happens, this is also set up to be a detox diet, as it contains foods with no added sugar, high fructose corn syrup, chemicals, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, etc… If you follow exactly what it says you will apparently be detoxed after about 3 weeks.
Now, I personally don’t care so much about that, but it is generally a good diet to follow in order to drop around 15 pounds in 3-4 weeks. The detox portion can be useful for someone who is often sick, or to keep from getting sick by consuming too many man-made chemicals.
This Diet Beat Cancer
Barbara requested the detox element specifically in order to help her recover from being diagnosed with cancer twice. As of today she has a clean bill of health and attributes this diet to much of her success.
Project Shred to Accommodate Everyone
I will be using my knowledge of nutrition and the human body to modify this diet in order to fit a larger audience. My version of Project Shred will involve many possible meal plans and will be customizable to males and females of any body weight.
It will not be an easy diet to stick to, but it will be a diet plan that you can really drop 10-20 pounds of straight fat in just one month.
I have been on this diet for 10 days and so far I have lost 6 lbs.
My girlfriend has been on this diet for 10 days and so far she has lost 7 lbs.
I will be detailing 3 weeks of progress for the both of us, including before and after pics and stats.

Wow, looking back now I can say I definitely did not accomplish many of my web project goals from last year. Maybe this year will be different.
That would be because I’ve been really sick basically the entire month of February. As it turns out, my girlfriend lost a total of 15 pounds in 3 weeks, and she’s kept 12 of them off, but she’s back to eating a normal healthy diet again rather than the 3 week fat loss blitz.
As for me, I’ve been wicked ill so not only did I drop 8 pounds from this diet, but I’ve also lost an additional 7 pounds from living on my death bed for about 2 straight weeks.
Just this week I’m starting to exercise and eat properly again. February was indeed a bad month for me.
Additionally, my side projects will be up and running again soon. I still have plans to release a Project Shred, a new 5×5 workout plan, and a site called FitWire that I’m sure all of you will enjoy. More details to follow.
I don’t see any updates with the diet or the progress.
Well Kim, I don’t have an opinion on pre-bagged salads as I don’t use them. If I did, I would choose a salad with green lettuce such as romaine. I would also add fresh spinach to my salad and lots of freshly cut vegetables. You are correct in saying that iceberg lettuce is useless.
Sounds pretty cool! I’ll definitely be reading it, although I don’t know if I will be brave enough to follow it!
Random Diet Question: Of all the prebagged salad varieties available today, which would you say is healthiest? I know that iceberg is pretty much useless, but where do the rest of the “spring mix”, “baby spinach”, “Italian yakkety-yak” mixes fall on the scale?
Thanks in advance for any advice on this.
