Best Vegetable Diet soup
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.

I had the same problem when I dieted2009-08-17 19:26:43 by elle180
Hi, I had the same problem when I dieted. The most difficult part was not to over-eat at night. My best solution was: go to bed early enough and fall asleep before the stomack starts growling. It was difficult because it required a discipline throughout the day (getting up earlier, having moved myself and keeping busy throughout the day, so I was really ready to sleep about 3 hours after the dinner). I mean I wouldn't be able to loose weight without having sleeping habits in order. Second best thing at night was a bowl of hot vegetable soup (Weight Watcher's recipe) at dinner time. It fills quite well and has less than 60 Calories
