Shredder Nation speaks: "I had no idea how much my life would change in only a month. With "Shred" I'm down a total of 27 lbs. At my age and metabolism, it's a miracle. I am a SHREDDER for life." --Beverly "Week 2 day 3. Lots of energy. Down 5 pounds already!"--Maggie "Got my measurements taken today and I was down 1/4 inch in all areas, even my trouble spot arms! Body fat percentage was slightly down too."--Nicole"I started Shredding twenty days ago. I've lost a total of 10 lbs. I don't miss all the junk food and fast foods I used to eat. I'm never hungry on the "Shre"d diet. This is the lifestyle change I truly needed."--Karen
