Weight Loss Diet

Last Sunday, we visited our grandma. It was then that my auntie asked if I'm interested in a diet plan she got, which have worked for her friends and for people working at their place. She said that within 1 week, you'll be able to lose 17lbs, as long as you stick STRICTLY to the plan. Kung baga, wala pong dayaan ha.. One of the maids got to lose 10+lbs (I think), some friends of hers got to lose a number of lbs as well (ahh.. can't remember the figures), and she did too, however, by the xth day, nasira siya sa plan... But still, she got to loose some within a short period.

Right now, I doubt that I'll be able to do it, much less start on it... Ang sarap kasing lumafang eh!! Anyway, I asked for a copy just in case I got enough determination and the right mind set.

I thought of posting this plan here just in case I lose the paper or if anyone is interested in trying it out (walang dayaan ha!).

This program was developed in conjunction with a grant from the US Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration. It was field tested at the Johns Hopkins Research Center.

This program is designed for a target weight loss of 10-17 lbs per week. It will also improve your attitude and emotions because of its cleansing systematic effects.

The effectiveness of the seven day plan is that the food eaten burns more calories than they give to the body in calorie value.

This plan can be used as often as you like without any fear of complications. It is designed to flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being. After seven days you will begin to feel lighter because you will be lighter - by at least 10 lbs. You will have an abundance of energy and an improved disposition.

DURING THE FIRST SEVEN DAYS, YOU MUST ABSTAIN FROM ALL ALCOHOL.

YOU MUST DRINK 10 GLASSES OF WATER EACH DAY.

DAY ONE:
All fruits except bananas. Your first day will consist of all fruits you want.
It is strongly suggested you consume lots of melons the first day especially watermelons and cantaloupe. If you limit your fruit consumptions to melons, your chances of losing pounds the first day are very good.

Day one - you are preparing your system for the upcoming program. Your only source of nutrition is fresh or canned fruits. Fruits are nature's perfect foods. They provide everything you could possibly want to sustain life except total balance and variety.

DAY TWO:
All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the amount of type.

For your complex carbohydrates, you will start day two with a large baked potato for breakfast. You may top the potato with a pat of butter.

Day Two starts with a fix of complex carbohydrates coupled with an oil dose. This is taken in the morning for energy and balance. The rest of the day consists of vegetables which are virtually calorie free and provide essential nutrients and fiber.

DAY THREE:
A mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity. No bananas yet, no potato today.

Day three eliminates the potato because you can get your carbohydrates from the fruits. Your system is now prepared to start burning excess pounds. You still have cravings start to diminish by day four.

DAY FOUR:
Bananas and milk. Today you will eat as much as 8 bananas and drink 3 glasses of milk.

Day four, bananas, milk, and soup sounds the strangest and least desirable. you are in for a surprise. You probably will not eat all the bananas allowed. but they are there for the potassium you have lost and the calcium you may have missed the past 3 days. You will notice a definite loss of desire for sweets. You will be surprised how easy this day will go.

DAY FIVE:
Today is a feast day. You will eat beef and tomatoes. Eat two 10oz portions of lean beef. Hamburger is ok. Combine this with big whole tomatoes. On day five you may increase water intake by on quart. This is to cleanse your system of the uric acid you would be producing.

Day five, beef and tomatoes. The red meat is for iron and protein. The tomatoes are for digestion and fiber. Lots of water to purify your system. You should notice colorless urine today. Your allowance calls for the equivalent of "5 Quarter Pounders". Do not feel you have to eat all this beef. You must eat 6 tomatoes.

DAY SIX:
Beef and vegetables. Today you must eat an unlimited amount of beef and vegetables. Eat to your hearts content.

Day six is similar to day five. Iron and protein from beef. Vitamins and fiber from vegetables. There should be noticeable difference in the way you look today compared to day one.

DAY SEVEN:

n
nn Today your food intake will consist of brown rice, fruit juices and all the vegetables you care to consume. Tomorrow morning you will be 10-17 lbs lighter than one week ago.. If you desire further weight loss, repeat the program again. You may repeat this as much as you like, however, it is suggested that you rest for 3 days between each repitition. After 7 days, you are allowed 2 glasses of white wine in addition to the instructions on the program. You may substitute champagne from white wine. Under no circumstances are you to drink any other alcoholic beverages with the exception of beer which is allowed. Any liquor is forbidden. Cream drinks are specially forbidden. If you have wine, drink only wine that day. If you have beer, drink only beer that day. Alcohol adds empty calories to you diet. However, after the first week, it will help you digestion and will settle your stomachs.

Day seven finishes off the program like a good cigar used to finish of Victorian meals, except much healtier. You have your system under control and it should thank you for the purging and cleansing you just gave it.

If you repeat the program, you may substitute fish or fowl for beef on day five or six. As a matter of fact, if you repeat more than twice, it is recommended. You do not want to get your system used to the diet routine. Believe it or not, you system has a will of its own and will tend to get lazy. You need the stimulation of variety.
