Summer is fast-approaching, do you have swimming schedules week from now and wants to be in your bikini? Then this diet program is helpful to make you lose 10-12 pounds in a week. But keep in mind, this should not be a permanent diet because I admit that it is not so healthy if you will do it regularly. I have tried this last summer however, I gave up on the fifth day but I was still able to lose 5 pounds. In addition, this 1-week diet is also a cleansing and detox process.
According to my research, (http://www.my7daydiet.com/7_day_diet_day_1.html)
>Eat only any variety of fruits except banana.
Explanation-The first day starts with fruit because it is a natural way to normalize the body and prepare it for the upcoming days of the diet.Fruits have multiple benefits – they are fat free and are low in calories compared to other foods most of us normally eat. Fruits also flush out the system thereby enhancing the detox process.
-Eat variety of vegetables, stir-fry or salad.
(Start the day with one baked or boiled potato to make up for loss of energy from Day One. Upto one teaspoon of olive oil can be used as salad dressing today.)
Explanation- This day starts off with a baked potato since all you have had the previous day is fruit which is easily digested. The potato ensures you have energy for the day as well as energy to continue to remain on the diet. The vegetables you will eat today are for fibre as well as nutrition. Vegetables have a moderate quantity of carbohydrates – but more importantly, they are rich in minerals and vitamins. The fibre activates your system for the detox process.
>Fruits and vegetables – as much as you want. No bananas and no potatoes
Explanation- Your body chemistry is changing because you are not getting any refined carbohydrates, saturated fats, excessive sodium and artificial flavor enhancers and additives. Your body is getting completely natural nutrition – which will optimize the weight loss process.
> Bananas and milk only (upto 8 bananas and 3 glasses skim milk)
Explanation- Day 4 is meant to make up for the reduced levels of calcium (from milk), potassium (from bananas) and carbohydrates and fibre (from bananas). Although you are allowed to have 8 bananas today, you might not have the craving to eat all the bananas.
>Finally, you can have a piece of meat/fish either grilled or baked with lots of tomatoes
Explanation- Today is the day to make up for all the protein in your system. The meat will give you protein and if you consume fish, you will get your share of Omega 3 Fatty acids which do wonders for health. The tomatoes give you fibre and minerals – in particular lycopene which is a super-food for the human body. Eating the tomatoes will also aid in flushing out the system.
> Protein and vegetables. Same as Day Five except, add more vegetables.
explanation- Day 6 is a lot like Day 5 – only that you need to eat as many vegetables instead of restricting yourself to tomatoes.
Day 7: The easiest!!!
> Fruits, vegetables and juices. Consume an assortment of fruits, vegetables and vegetable juices. Half a cup of brown rice is optional – but not recommended.
Explanation- You are now on your last day of the diet. You might feel a little weak this morning because your body has not consumed too much carbohydrate in the last 2 days. Today, you can eat fruits, vegetables and vegetable juices. Brown rice is optional but not recommended if you want to see weight loss.
Additional note: If you are craving, you can include the “wonder soup” in your diet and can consume that soup everyday. You can research for the recipe of wonder soup.
Good luck, I hope I can also do this program before summer ends but I tend to eat a lot that’s why I am just sharing this. Hugs & Kisses!
