The second week of The SUPER SHRED Diet is called Accelerate. It pushed me harder than it did in Week 1. During the second week of most weight loss programs, things usually slow down. Accelerate is designed to help you accelerate through the natural slowdown. During Week 2 you may not lose as much as Week 1, but you can lose weight! I really had to push myself to stay focused as I adjusted to the new meal plan for the week.

Week 2 meal plan was a lot different than Week 1. I had two snacks for the entire day. The challenging part was having a snack at 10:00 a.m. and not another snack until 8:00 p.m. or three hours after my last meal. There was a 4.5 hour gap between Meal 2 and Meal 3. I did notice that I had to stay focused with hydration and being more intentional about getting my water in. I slacked off a little bit, but quickly got back focused. 

Super Shredder Day (SSD)—For those who don’t know, SSD is somewhat of an intermittent fasting day. You can read more about it here. It also fell on a Friday night. Womp! Now THIS was kind of hard. Friday nights are usually when I like to enjoy something really good for dinner or something I have been wanting to eat all week. I had 1.5 cups of soup for lunch and then another 1.5 cups of soup again for dinner. The good thing about soup is that you can switch them up so you won’t get bored.

Super Shred Diet Week 2 - My Pretty Brown Blog Tuna Creations (with grapes), one of my favorite snacks that I had during the week!  So far my favorite flavors are Garlic & Herb and Ranch! Sweet & Spicy is not too far behind. High in protein and low in fat…and still a very healthy snack!

 

Super Shred Diet Week 2 - My Pretty Brown Blog

This was my Hump Day lunch (5/6/2015). Green salad (4 cups of greens) which can include olives, shredded carrots, 1/2 sliced tomato or 5 grape tomatoes with 3 Tbsps of fat-free dressing. I’m not a fan of fat-free dressing or tomatoes (but I love fresh salsa, pico de gallo, and ketchup…weird I know). I did find a Sun-Dried Tomato fat-free dressing by Ken’s Steakhouse that’s pretty good. I had green salads often throughout week 1 and 2.

This was like heaven on a plate! Not sure if it was due to the acceleration of the week or because my plate was full and my tummy was happy—with all the good stuff!

Overall, I had a good week! A few challenges here and there, but I survived. I did lose weight (Yay!), but it was not as significant as it was in Week 1. Let me rephrase that, ANY weight loss is significant. I have to remind myself to celebrate all victories…even the non-scale ones! I’ll share my weight loss results again after completing Week 4! CAN.NOT.WAIT. I will also be sharing more about life after SUPER SHRED.

    My girlfriend started super shred this week. Your posts have been helpful for me to share with her and to support her through the process. Keep up the good work!

    • Thank you so much, Tamieka!!! I appreciate your encouragement! Tell your friend to keep pushing! She can do it!!!

    • It’s not bad at all! When you’re eating soup or smoothies/shakes it makes it a lot easier!

  2. I will go check out SHRED. I have about 10 lbs I’d like to lose. Congrats on the progress- even if week 2 wasn’t as significant as week one, definitely still progress :)

    • Thank you, AJ! You will like Shred. It’s very easy to follow!

  3. Congrats on your progress so far! It sounds like it is going well for you! Is it hard to keep track of the changing meal/snack times?

    • Thank you, Kate! No , t wasn’t hard…it was the adjustment phase which didn’t take long. I think it’s a great way to trick the body!

  4. Well done on your progress so far! You should be proud, I would be a whole new level of hangry on those meals.

    • LOL!!! Yes! Trust me I had my moments, but of course I know to be more consistent with drinking my water. Thanks, Bri!

  5. These meals look delicious. You are doing such an awesome job & I love that you are sharing your journey. Thank you! :)

  6. Way to Go!!! I looked at Super Shred and considered doing it with a friend of mine…it just required too much preparation for me…ie…too many ways for ME to FAIL!! lol Keep up the awesome work!!!

    OAN: you are absolutely beautiful! :-)

    • Hahaha!!! You are hilarious! You will NOT fail. You can totally do it! It’s not bad at all. I thought I would have to meal prep more, but it was moreso having everything you need on hand. I generally pack my meals that I need for the next day either the night before or morning—and just about the rest when I get home. Thank you for the sweet comments and encouragement, Safari!

  7. At least it looks like you are eating lots good food. The salad and the plate of veggies looks yummy. I’m a big fan of salads, I try to eat one everyday. It makes a big difference in my weight.

    • I’m going to try eating a big salad for one of my meals daily! I think it helps too!

  8. Thank you so much for posting an update about your super shred diet! I have started it 3 days ago, and you are one of my inspirations. I have frequently checked your blog to see if you posted new updates about your diet. Please continue sharing. Thank you in advance!

    • Wow! Thank you so much, Austin! I know I have not posted since my final update on Super Shred, mainly because I started my training and my diet has changed. I think I may do a check-in soon or share more post-shred food posts. I wish you much success on the program!
