From Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital. Used for overweight heart patients to lose rapidly, usually before surgery.
6 large green onions
2 green pepper
1 or 2 cans tomatoes
1 bunch of celery
1 large head of cabbage
1 pkg. Lipton soup mix
Season with salt, pepper, curry, parsley, if desired, or bouillon, or hot sauce.
Cut vegetables in small to medium pieces and cover with water. Boil fast for ten minutes. Cut to simmer and continue cooking until veggies are tender. This soup can be eaten anytime you are hungry. Eat as much as you want, whenever you want. This soup will not add calories. The more you eat, the more weight you will lose. Fill a thermos in the morning if you will be away during the day. If eaten alone for indefinite periods, you would suffer malnutrition!
DAY ONE: All fruits except bananas. Cantaloupe and watermelon are lower in calories than most fruits. Eat only the soup and fruits. For drinks – unsweetened tea, cranberry juice or water.
DAY TWO: All vegetables. Eat until you are stuffed with all the fresh raw or canned veggies. Try to eat green left veggies and stay away from dry beans, peas and corn. Eat along with the soup. At dinnertime on this day, reward yourself with a big baked potato and butter. Do not
Eat any fruits.
DAY THREE: Eat all the soup, fruits and veggies you want. Do not have a baked potato.
…If you have eaten for three days, as above, and have not cheated, you will find you have lost 5 to 7 pounds….
DAY FOUR: Bananas and skim milk. Eat as many as 3 bananas and drink as many glasses of water as you can on this day along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates and so is the milk, but on this particular day your body will need the potassium and the carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen your craving for sweets.
DAY FIVE: Beef and Tomatoes. You may have 10-20 ounces of beef and a can of tomatoes or as many as 6 fresh tomatoes on this day. Try to drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash away the uric in your body. Eat the soup at least once this day.
DAY SIX: Beef and Veggies. Eat to your heart’s content of the beef and veggies this day. You can even have two or three steaks if you like with the green leafy veggies, but no baked potato. Be sure and eat the soup at least once a day.
DAY SEVEN: Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juice, and veggies. Again, stuff yourself. Be sure to have the soup at least once today.
The end of the seventh day, if you have not cheated on the about diet, you will have lost 10 to 17 pounds. If you have lost more 15 pounds, stay off the diet for two full days before resuming the diet again on day one.
This seven-day eating plan can be used as often as you like. As a matter of fact, if correctly followed, it will clean your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being as never before.
After only seven days of this process, you will begin to feel lighter by at least 10 to 15 pounds, and have an abundance of energy. Continue this plan as long as you like and feel the difference.
This diet is fast, fat burning and the secret is that you will burn more calories than you take in. It will flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well-being. This diet DOES NOT lend itself to drinking any alcoholic beverages at any time because of the removal of the fat build-up in your system. Go off the diet at least 24 hours before any intake of alcohol.
Because everyone’s digestive system is different, this diet will affect everyone differently. After day three, you will have more energy than when you began if you did not cheat. After being on the diet for several days, you will find your bowel movements have changed—eat a cup of bran or fiber. Although you can have black coffee with this diet, you may find that you do not need the caffeine after the third day!
DEFINITE NO-NO-NO’S:-- No bread, no alcohol, no carbonated drinks (including diet drinks). Stick with water, unsweetened tea, black coffee, unsweetened fruit juices, cranberry juice and skimmed milk.
The Basic Fat Burning Soup can be eaten anytime you feel hungry. Eat as much as you like.
Remember, the more you eat, the more you will lose. No fried foods or bread. You can eat broiled or baked chicken instead of meat—absolutely no skin on the chicken.
Any prescribed medication will not hurt you on this diet. Continue this plan as long as you wish and feel the difference both mentally and physically. If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for the beef on only one of the beef days. You need the high protein in the beef on the other days.
