While she was on Celebrity Fit Club, Tiffany Darwish used Dr. Ian Smith’s Fat Smash Diet to help her lose weight and get her eating habits in order.
Tiffany says the diet works perfectly because it utilizes real food. The Fat Smash diet promotes healthy eating by letting you pick what you want to eat from a variety of food groups.
You can eat fruits, vegetables, lean protein, nuts, and complex carbohydrates. Add some exercise to this diet and you can expect to lose about eight pounds in two weeks. However, in the beginning, it does severely limit certain foods.
You cannot eat white potatoes and white bread – these simple starches are known to quickly raise blood sugar and insulin, which often leads to food cravings.
Tiffany Darwish’s workout On Fit Club, she burned calories doing physical challenges like rock-climbing and kayaking. After the show, Tiffany was determined to keep variety in her workouts, trying roller-skating, ballet, Pilates, hiking and jumping rope.
She does at least 30 minutes of cardio every day. “I literally put the treadmill in the living room so I can do the laundry and go to the gym. No excuses!”
