Step 1: Weigh yourself and do not weigh yourself again for a month. Also, pick out the three days of the week you will be doing this diet (i.e.: Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.) You will want to use the same three days every week.
Step 2: For the three days you chose, eat the following without adding one crumb extra, substituting, or eliminating any of the foods. Eat everything on the list in the correct amounts.Day 1:
Breakfast: half a grapefruit OR half a cup of juice, 1 slice of toast, 1 Tbsp peanut butter, and black coffee or tea.
Lunch: half cup of tuna, 1 slice of toast, and black coffee or tea.
Dinner: 2 slices (3 oz.) any type of meat, 1 cup string beans, 1 cup carrots OR beets, 1 small apple, and 1 cup vanilla ice cream.
Breakfast: 1 hardboiled egg, 1 slice of toast, half a banana, and black coffee or tea.
Lunch: one cup of cottage cheese only OR half a cup of tuna with 5 saltine crackers.
Dinner: two wieners, 1 cup cabbage OR broccoli, half cup carrots OR turnip greens, half a banana, and 1 cup vanilla ice cream.
Breakfast: 1 hardboiled egg, 1 slice toast, and black coffee or tea.
Lunch: 1 slice cheddar cheese (use Kraft Cheddar slices for sandwiches), 5 saltine crackers, 1 small apple, and black coffee or tea.
Dinner: 1 cup tuna, 1 cup carrots OR beets, 1 cup green beans OR cauliflower, 1 cup cantaloupe OR 1 small apple, and 1 cup vanilla ice cream.
Step 3: This diet works as a chemical breakdown so it is important you follow it strictly for these three days without varying the amount, eating extra, substituting, or subtracting any of the foods.You can: drink diet sodas, use sweetener in your tea, and use salt and pepper.You can’t: use milk for coffee, use any other seasonings besides salt and pepper, or use oil or butter to cook with.Try to eat meals at the same time every day and try to eat dinner before 6 pm and go to bed around 9 or 10 pm so you do not get late night cravings.
Step 4: You do not have to do any of the following, but I recommend it for optimal results:Exercise 30 minutes, at LEAST 3 times a week.
Step 5: Also optional but recommended: On the other four days of your week:Limit cooking with butter and oils, if you use oil I recommend extra virgin olive oil.Do not binge or go on eating sprees.Make sure what you eat is not more than a full dinner plate and not more than two inches high during each meal, limiting your meals to three a day.Do not snack between meals or late at night. Go to bed early to prevent late night cravings.
