7 Day Vegetable soup Diet recipe
I’m going to Disneyland next week and decided that I didn’t want to take my muffin top with me,especially since I have this cute form fitting top that I want to wear so bad WITHOUT SPANKS!! When I need to lose my gut or 10 pounds quickly I turn to 3 diets that never lets me down; my smoothie diet,The 17 Day Diet (review coming soon) and my newest love,the 7-day diet!!
I know some people HATE these kinda diets but I love them! They work well for me and the weight stays off as long as you eat a healthy,balance diet afterwards. I never do though since I mainly use these diets for quick weight loss for an event,the week before Thanksgiving,or to jumpstart my spring dieting before swimsuit season.
OK so let’s talk about the 7-day diet!! It’s an old diet that has been around for YEARS and revised over and over again. You are likely to find several different version online. Lately these 7-day diets have become really popular. Even Dr. Oz has one. I first read about it on Justin and Ashley’s blog (she answers a lot of questions about this diet so if you have them,check out her FAQS section) I think this diet is a great cleanse because I always feel so refreshed and clean inside and out afterwards.
On the 7-day diet you follow a certain eating plan everyday. Along with eating these specific foods you are allowed to have cabbage soup aka wonder soup aka weight loss soup aka miracle soup aka weight watcher soup whenever you’d like. This is what drew me to the 7-day diet because I love that I can eat this soup in unlimited quantities. I HATE being hungry and I will not stick to any kind of diet if I’m hungry. Point. Blank. Period. Don’t forget you MUST drink 8 glasses of water each day. My results vary if I slack on water,but 8-10 pounds is what I usually lose.
Now about this weight loss Cabbage Soup (Wonder Soup),the website (my7daydiet.com) says you should boil the vegetables in water,uh…no ma’am!! I’ve always used chicken broth or vegetable broth with seasoned canned tomatoes and it has never hindered my weight loss.There is NO WAY I would be eating this soup everyday if I made it according to the recipe on the site. Yuck! Throughout the diet I also use salt,pepper,lots of herbs & seasonings,olive oil,and a tad of butter. I also add 0-5 calorie flavorings to my water to make sure I get in all my water. These changes have never affected my results.
So here is a brief overview of the diet plan. Get more details on my7daydiet.com
Day 1- Eat nothing but fruit today (except for bananas) and as much of the diet cabbage soup as you’d like. I like to eat baked cinnamon apples in the morning,a large fruit salad and cabbage soup for lunch,and cabbage soup and a melon salad for dinner. I snack on fruit throughout the day,usually frozen berries,grapes and watermelon.
Day 2- Eat nothing but vegetables (except corn or other starchy veggies). However,you do get to start the day with a baked potato. You will LOVE having this baked potato trust me! I never thought I’d be so happy to eat a baked potato in the morning! I put a tad bit of salt and butter (I cheat) on the potato along with some broccoli and tomatoes. For lunch I do the cabbage soup and salad sprinkle with salt,pepper and olive oil. This is actually pretty good. For dinner I do mashed cauliflower topped with a stir fry.

Vegetarians should consume a variety of calcium sources in order to meet daily requirements. Studies have shown vegetarians absorb and retain more calcium from foods than do non-vegetarians.
If dairy products are not included in your diet, adequate amounts of calcium can be obtained from plant foods. Here are some other vegetarian-friendly sources of calcium:
* Fortified soymilk or rice milk
* Leafy green vegetables
* Calcium-fortified juice
* Calcium-set tofu
* Almonds and almond butter
* Sesame seeds and sesame butter (tahini)
* Soy nuts
Juicing answered2013-08-02 16:14:30 by Winterghost2002
Look, most people don't know much about the benefits of juicing, so they'll dismiss it as just another fad diet, a fiber-less drink, and other what nots...but the truth is that there's plenty of protein along with a ton of other nutrients available in the juices, depending on what you're juicing...no V8s are a waste of time, canned juices don't even come close to what one can make at home...and the juicers are not even that expensive...I got mine for 45 bucks and have had it for a year and a half...I've done a ton of research on this matter and juicing fruits and vegetables makes sense...Look, think of liquids like alcohol and coffee

Well, help me out here.
i usually eat for breakfast yogurt with flax and fruit juice. i can still eat the goat yogurt with psyllium husk, but i can't figure out what to do about the sweetener. just go no sweetener? any alternatives to this quick breakfast i can eat while i drive to work that takes no time to prepare?
she said i should snack every 2-3 hours on high protein foods. HELP! my idea of a snack is fruit, or sugar and i can't eat it. Besides the obvious suggestion of vegetables, can anyone offer any concrete suggestions? I am seriously at a loss of how to manage this diet
