Hope you are all good :) As you may remember I am currently trying to lose weight. A few weeks ago I did the 3 day diet to help kick start my weight loss and managed to lose 5lbs. Well, between the end of that diet and last week I managed to lose a further 2lbs through plain and simple healthy eating. Today I'm going to tell you about a diet I began last thursday. It goes by the name of The 7 day Sacred Heart Diet and I do not recommend it at all!! I had never done this diet before, so I had no idea what it was going to be like. It didn't sound to bad to be honest, but it was.
I was hungry and tired constantly, but it wasn't until last night (day 6) that enough was enough. I literally could not move from the toilet (I know too much information!) My stomach swelled up and was making the most strange noises I have ever heard in my life, I was vomiting too. This is when I decided this diet is so not worth it. I was awake and in agony for the entire night. There was absolutely no way I was going to continue with it, I just wanted to get weighed and throw some decent food down my neck!
The 7 day Sacred Heart Diet
The principle of this diet is to fill up on a very low calorie soup, which can be consumed in as large a quantity as is needed. Other foods are off limits, except for the foods prescribed for each day, as are alcoholic drinks. The diet lasts for 7 days, after which time dieters are supposed to have lost at least 10 pounds, as well as feeling cleansed and rejuvenated.
I'm not going to post the recipe of the soup etc but if you would like to see it click here. Like I said I do not recommend this diet, but here's what I had to eat each day, along with the soup ...
Day One - As much fruit as you want, except bananas.
Day Two - As much veg as you want and a large baked potato with butter.
Day Three - As much fruit and veg as you want.
Day Four - At least 3 bananas and as much skimmed milk as you want.
Day Five - 10 to 20 oz beef, cooked in any way except fried and one tin of tomatoes.
Day Six - As much beef and veg as you want.
Day Seven - As much brown rice and veg as you want.
Anyway, I got weighed after my 6th day and I had lost 10lbs! Amazing obviously, but not worth making myself ill over. I will never ever do this diet ever again, but I can't promise I won't have a go of other fad diets. The super-fast weight loss is just sooo tempting. For now though I am enjoying being reunited with my best friend mr carb!
