The 7 Day Fat Burning Soup Diet

The Fat Burning Soup Recipe

6 large green onions or large red onion
1-2 cans of tomatoes
1 large head of cabbage
2 green peppers
1 bunch celery
rosemary & tarragon for flavoring
shitake mushrooms for flavoring
1 hot pepper
2 or 3 cloves of chopped garlic
vegetable bouillon

Cut vegetables in small to medium pieces, sauté in and cover with water. Boil fast for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to simmer and continue cooking until vegetables are tender. Spices, such as rosemary, sage, thyme, tarragon or oregano, may be added as desired toward the end of cooking.

This soup can be eaten any time you are hungry. Eat as much as you want, whenever you want. This soup will not add calories. The more you eat, the more you will lose. Fill a thermos in the morning if you will be away during the day. However, if eaten alone for indefinite periods, you would suffer from malnutrition.

The Fat Burning Diet

  • Day One: All fruits except bananas. Cantaloupe and watermelon are lower on calories than most fruits. Eat only the soup and fruits. For drinks – unsweetened tea, cranberry juice or water.
  • Day Two: All vegetables. Eat until you are stuffed with all the fresh, raw or canned vegetables. Try to eat green, leafy vegetables and stay away from dry limns peas, and corn. Eat along with the soup. At dinnertime on day two, reward yourself with a big baked potato and butter. Do not eat any fruits.
  • Day Three: Eat all the soup, fruits and vegetables you want. Do not have a baked potato.If you have eaten for three days, as above, and have not cheated, you will find you should have lost 5 – 7 lb.
  • Day Four: Bananas and skimmed milk. Eat as many as 3 bananas and drink as many glasses of skimmed milk as you can on this day along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates along with the milk, but on this particular day your body will need the potassium, carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen your cravings for sweets.
  • Day Five: Beef and tomatoes. You may have 10-20 ounces of beef and a can of tomatoes or as many as 6 fresh tomatoes on this day. Try to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water on day five to wash away the uric acid in your body. Eat the soup at least once on day five.
  • Day Six: Beef and vegetables. Eat to your heart’s content of the beef and vegetables on day six. You can even have two or three steaks if you like with green leafy vegetables, but no baked potato. Be sure to eat the soup at least once.
  • Day Seven: Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juice and vegetables. Again, stuff yourself and be sure to have the soup at least once.  

By the end of the seventh day, if you haven’t cheated on the diet, you should’ve lost 10-17lbs. If you’ve lost more than 15lbs, stay off the diet for two full days before resuming the diet again from day one.

If correctly followed, it will clean your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being like never before. After only seven days, you should feel lighter and have an abundance of energy. This diet is for fast fat burning, and the secret is that you’ll burn more calories than you realise. Because everyone’s digestive system is different, this diet will affect everyone differently.

Remember

DO NOT drink any alcoholic beverages. This is due to the removal of the fat build-up in the system. Go off diet at least 24 hours before any intake of alcohol.

DO NOT consume any carbonated drinks (including diet drinks). Stick with water, unsweetened tea, black coffee, unsweetened fruit juices, cranberry juice, or skimmed milk.

DO NOT eat any bread or fried foods

Although you can have black coffee with this diet, you may find that you don’t need the caffeine after the third day.

You can eat grilled or baked chicken (with no skin) instead of the beef. You can also substitute grilled fish for the beef on ONE of the days. You’ll need the high-protein in the meat on the other days.

  7. Jamie C says:

    Just to let everyone know this is my secret for a couple years now. i started doing this initially to lose weight i was 19 stone and lost 17lb in a week, you tend to put some back on as your body keeps out a lot of the water and your bowel seems empty all the time, when you go back onto normal food you tend to put 3-5 lb back, i now do it for the health benefits, keeps your mind much more focused, you appreciate the things you can’t eat that we may have took for granted before like chicken and steak and eggs! such a great detox.
    I am big fan!
    happy results everyone – currently im back on day two as i let myself go a but. will keep you posted on my success

    1. Great Jamie! Keep up the good work and thank you for sharing : )

    Hi. I can’t eat bananas. Is there anything else?

  9. kylie says:

    I don’t get how you make the soup. Do you leave the water in with the tomatoes.

    1. Guest says:

      To make the soup u chop 6 large white onions and 2 green bell peppers in a pan of water until the onions and peppers are tender then u take the pan off the cooker and add 2 tins of chopped tomatoes the soup is ready . i stir in chilli powder to flavour as there is no taste to the soup i also blend the soup aswell .

  10. clare says:

  12. sandra says:

    p.s. if you are not making the soup and going for the dry frying please drink the same amount of water which you would have got if you were having the soup.

  13. sandra says:

    Hi i have been on this diet for 7 days now and it works ! The first two days is the hardest and you may get a headache as i did but please persevere as after this you do not feel hungry and find it a lot easier. You use white onion with the soup but on a veg day it wouldnt matter i guess.You can eat frozen but fresh is best. I have added spices garlic currie powder to taste soup but on the thrid day got really bored with it so i made something that i enjoyed most. I put all my soup contents in a frying pan used a little fry light and a little water to slowly fry veg mix veg first then add tomatoes a little at a time and if perferred cut up a little of small tomatoes and add . do not add salt on any occasion and only green peppers. When veggies are cooked add some garlic powder small amount and curry or chilli powder italian herbs/pepper to taste to any of meat or veg mix. This is a substitue for the soup so it is the same ingredients.I have really enjoyed this diet and i have lost half a stone in a week.

    1. Thank you for the advice Sandra 🙂

  14. David H says:

    Hi all I have been following the diet for nearly two weeks. Admittedly I have cheated on day 5 and then restarted the diet. Cheated means I have returned to a normal diet (for three days) and treated myself to a sugar in a coffee and a couple of pieces of chocolate. I have not got so much weight to lose, I am 86kg and my ideal target is 82kg, I started this diet when I weighed 90.8kg. However I have managed to lose over 4kg towards this target by following this diet, I admit I have not made a full week yet, but today was again my day one. I know my body and I have to say that I am even though this diet plan is not seriously tough, I do generally feel better, more alert, drinking virtually no coffee (even though you can) and I am losing weight. This is also combined with cardio and gym. That apart I would recommend anyone to try it. It is definately worth ago even if you are only looking to shed a few kg and not 15+ kg.
    Thank you for this advice and suggestion to help get the goals you want, it has helped me, and if I do manage to reach my target, even if it takes a little longer I will post it on here.

    1. Thank you for sharing David : )

    Hi
    I am looking to start this diet on Sunday. Can you confirm if I need to use white or red onions for the soup, also can you recommend what vegetables I should use in the soup.

    Do I cook everything together or do I do it separately? I love my spices can I add spices to the soup?

    Thanks for your time

    1. Hi Roxy ann,

      Either white or red onions are fine, please only add what is stated to the make the soup – 6 large onions, 2 green peppers (bell peppers), and 2 cans of tomatoes (diced).

      You can certainly season with spices of you wish and all can be cooked together : )

  19. Cheekymunkey says:

    Does the cranberry juice need to be unsweetened as the other fruit juices?

    1. Preferably 🙂 if you cannot stomach unsweetened then don’t worry sweetened should not make too much of a difference.

      Slimming Solutions LTD

  20. Helles Belles says:

    Hi there, can the green peppers be substituted by red peppers as green don’t seem to agree with me. Also the unsweetened fruit juice can that mean fruit juice squash? On meat days can you mix with tomatoes and other veg to make a bolognase type meal? Do you advice taking any vitamin supplements during the diet weeks? Also can you add other fresh veg to the soup?
    Many thanks

    1. Yes you can swap the green peppers for red peppers. The fruit juice would need to be fresh rather than squash. Please eat what is stated on specific days i.e meat days. You can take vitamins if you wish, this will not affect the diet in any way. We advise you only add the vegetables stated to the soup. You can season with pepper, garlic, chilli powder etc if you wish.

    Hi I am on day 3. Day 1 have eaten tons of fruit 1 bowl soup for lunch and dinner and day 2 loads veg but no potato didn’t fancy it and soup for lunch.

    hi are you allowed to eat dried and tin fruit on the fruit days??

      We would always advise that you choose fresh wherever possible, however if you did not dried would be better than tinned as tinned foods contain a lot of additives.

  31. Hi Susie,

    The only day you cannot have bananas is day one, all other days where you have fruit you can include bananas. As for tomatoes you can also have these whenever fruit/vegetable are mentioned. Making a smoothie with your bananas and milk on day 4 is perfectly fine.

    Regards,
    Slimming Solutions

  32. Hi Susie,

    I am unsure what you mean regarding ‘fruit allowance’? Or where you have seen this.

    Regards,
    Slimming Solutions.

  33. Susie says:

    I also wondered if we’re allowed to eat tomatoes on the other fruit/veg days. The diet specifies dont eat bananas any other days but nothing about tomatoes on days 3,3 or 6. And finally is a skimmed milk and banana smoothie acceptable on 4?
    Thanks

  34. Natalie Crook says:

    Do we have soup for breakfast dinner & tea? Is ther a time of day you should stop eating the soup? Thanks xx

    Thanks.

  42. Amy Smith says:

  43. Hi Rebecca,

    Unfortunately there are no substitute stated for bananas however as stated above: Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates along with the milk, but on this particular day your body will need the potassium, carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen your cravings for sweets therefore you could replace with a either 2 kiwis, 1 cup of papaya or 2 apricots, please be aware however that this could have a negative affect on your end result.

      Yes, you have the soup on this day too.

  101. Squidge says:

    I don’t like bananas or milk, what can I swap these for on day 4?

    1. Hi Squidge,

      Your body needs the potassium, carbohydrates, proteins and calcium, if you do not like the milk and bananas may I suggest alternative’s that contain the above.

      1. Squidge says:

        Such as?

  102. Hi George,

    There are no particular recommendations on what you should eat however we would advise healthy foods low in calories.

  103. Hi mayz,

    I am unsure if fasting will affect your weight loss however there is a possibility.

  104. Hi Deb,

    What a fantastic tip!

    Thank you 🙂

  105. Hi London,

    Yes, you can add water if you wish.

  106. Hi Starving,

    Please see below the meal plan for day 4, would would advise that you stick to this for optimum results, however a little fruit or veg won’t do you any harm : )

    Day Four: Bananas and skimmed milk. Eat as many as 3 bananas and drink as many glasses of water as you can on this day along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates along with the milk, but on this particular day your body will need the potassium, carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen your cravings for sweets.

  107. Hi Guest,

    Yes, it is fine to have mushrooms on the vegetable day.

  108. George says:

    Hi, on these two days between the diets (after you’ve finished one) what should we eat? Any recommendations?

  109. mayz says:

    Hi,

    I am thinking of doing this diet during Ramdan.. I will be fasting during the day- so no food or drink for more than 10 hours then I’m thinking of opening my fast with this soup and following the diet above… is that okay? or will fasting slow down my weight loss process

    Cheers!

  110. Deb says:

    I’ve decided to finely cut and then roast (using light oil spray) Parsnips, beetroot & sweet potato to make a tasty snack to replace crisps! 🙂

  111. Michelle says:

    Hi! I’m on my 3rd day & am quite happy with the results. I have varied the soup after I read every page I could find on this diet. Living in Spain, we have wonderful fruits & vegetables. I have had salads w/ virgin olive oil ( a small amount) & lemon juice as a dressing. On day 3, spanish gazpacho is a great, filling drink, made w/ tomatoes & veggies. I also use a small amount of olive oil, just enough to just coat the pan & sautee my fresh or frozen veggies w/ some sliced garlic. Bay leaves are a wonderful way to add flavor to veggies & the soup also. I usually have a cold lettuce & veggie salad…canned artichokes, White asparagus, canned mushrooms, cucumbers etc, then the soup or a hot cooked veggie, makes it feel as if you are not only eating veggies… I have been drinking over 2 liters of wáter a day. This morning I measured myself…do not own a scale, I’m scared of them!…& have lost 3 cm on my bust, 4 on my waist & another 3 on my hips. I say that if you started this, chins up & finish it up! Every body & person is different but I do recommend up your wáter intake!

    1. Hi Michelle,

      Some useful tips there that I’m sure your fellow dieters will find appealing 🙂 thank you!

  112. bulldaz says:

    is it ok to have mushrooms on the vegetable day

  113. London says:

    can you put water in the soup to dilute it a bit so it’s not too rich, and can you add seasoning and herbs?

  114. Starving says:

    Are you allowed fruit and/or veg on day 4?

  115. Hi ZLC,

    We recommend that you only drink the liquids stated for optimum results.

  116. Hi ZLC,

    It is entirely up to how much rice you eat as it is stated that you should fill yourself up but try to eat the soup at least once in the day.

    Hope this helps.

  117. Hi Danielle_daisy,

    We wish you every success following the diet, do keep us posted with your results 🙂

  118. Hi Arumbaya,

    We are sorry to hear of your disappointment with this diet so far however we would recommend that you complete the 7 days as results do vary in every individual, we cannot state exactly how much any one person will lose.

  119. Hi Elexus,

    Please see below:

    If you prefer, you can substitute grilled fish for the beef on only one of the beef days. You need the high-protein in the beef the other days.

    I hope this helps.

  120. Hi Loulou,

    As the diet states –

    Day Five: Beef and tomatoes. You may have 10-20 ounces of beef and a can of tomatoes or as many as 6 fresh tomatoes on this day. Try to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water on day five to wash away the uric acid in your body. Eat the soup at least once on day five.

    We recommend that you eat only the foods stated here on this particular day.

    Hope this helps.

  121. Hi Lauren,

    This really depends on how much of the soup you consume as you are able to eat it whenever you feel hungry.

    Hope this helps.

  122. Hi Slimjim,

    We are pleased to hear that you are persevering with the diet as we know it can be tough.

    Please see the information below for what to do after the 7 days;

    If you have lost more than 15lbs stay off the diet for two full days before resuming the diet again from day one. If correctly followed, it will clean your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being as never before.After only seven days of this process you will begin to feel lighter by at least 10-15lbs and have an abundance of energy. Continue this plan as long as you like and feel the difference.

    Hope this helps.

  123. Hi Dolly,

    You can eat the soup hot or cold. It is entirely up to you if you wish to replace the beef with chicken however please be aware that your end result may not be the same as if you were using beef.

    In regards to how much rice you should have again, this is entirely up to you. It is stated above that you should fill yourself up and have the soup at least once throughout the day.

    Hope this helps.

  124. Hi Loulou,

    You can stir-fry the vegetables however we would only recommend either dry frying or using a low-cal spray oil.

    Hope this helps.

  125. Hi SS Reen,

    The ingredients for the soup are as follows:

    6 Large onions
    2 Green peppers (bell peppers)
    2 Cans of tomatoes (diced)

    Unfortunately there is no vegatable subsitute that we know of that could replace meat and fish.

    We wish you every success following the diet and do keep us posted with your results.

    1. George says:

      I’m a vegetarian and I know that Soy has got lots of proteins, could I use it as a substitute? Please reply! I so want to do this diet!

  126. ZLC says:

    Also is green tea ok to drink ?

  127. ZLC says:

    Day7, how much brown rice are you able to eat?

  128. Danielle_daisy says:

    I’ve just started this diet and oooo golly I find the soup absolutely awful even tho I have added herbs and spices. But amazingly I’ve only had 2bowls of soup and some fruit I don’t feel tired or lacking in energy nor hungry…..even managed to not nibble on the left overs after dishing up my daughters, fingers crossed 🙂 good luck fellow dieters 🙂

  129. Lin Chan says:

    I’m on the end of day 3,followed the above diet exactly as it is , and only lost 2.8 lb. disappointed.not sure if it’s worth completing now.it is claimed that one should lose 5-7 lb on day 3.not true.

  130. Elexus says:

    for the beef days can i do grilled chick
    en instead?

  131. Loulou says:

    Is there no veg or fruit on day 5 just beef tomatoes and soup ?

  132. Lauren says:

    Hi, is the ingredients at the top based on a soup for one day
    Or for the whole 7days? Thanks.

  133. Slimjim says:

    I’ve just started day one and so far so good. I do see the soup becoming sickening having so much of it but mentally I’m preparing myself so all should be fine. I like how as the week goes on it feels like it gets more rewarding with the food each day. My questions is, so where from here? 7 days is up, then what? Do it again…

  134. Dolly says:

    Do you eat this soup hot?
    Can I take out all the beef and replace with all chicken?
    And does it matter how much brown rice you have on day 7?

  135. Loulou says:

    Hi finding the answers to people’s questions very inconsistent ie in some replies u have stated u can stir fry the veg and in others it says its not recommended please clarify thanks

  136. SS Reen says:

    Hi, i am going to start with this diet, however have few queries:
    1. while preparing soup what vegetables should we use along onions & tomatoes?

    2. For vegetarians u have said substitute for beed is fish, now i am a vegeterian where i dont eat any kinda flesh, such as meat, fish, beef, chicken, pork…nothing…please let me know if there is any vegetable which can be a substitute..thanks

  137. GiGi winnie says:

    I’m on day two and I didn’t mind the soup the first time but after having it twice yesterday and today I am finding it a little repulsive but once you eat a couple of mouthfuls you get used to it. I don’t have a weighing scale so I will not be able to monitor my weight loss and will be doing It from sight and with a tape measure, I really hope this works but I think it will get tough especially say four which is only bananas and soup…
    Good luck to any one else attempting

    1. Hi GiGi winnie,

      We wish you every success following the diet, do keep us posted with your results 🙂

  138. Dill5467 says:

    Can I add salt to the soup or veg when cooking or after just before eating?

    1. Hi mthom125,

    1. Hi Chilli,

      We wouldn’t recommend chocolate of any kind however adding chilli is fine and this will actually speed up your metabolism.

      I am unsure what kimchi is therefore i cannot comment on whether this would be allowed in the diet.

    Hi, just wondering about variations to the diet..the American version includes 2 chicken stock cubes, however predicts exactly the same amount of weight loss? However it says here any variation will effect results?

    1. Hi Seren Jones,

      I am unsure of the American version as have never came across this however if you wish to include chicken stock cubes that is entirely up to you.

  150. H says:

    Do we not have the soup on day four

    1. Hi H,

      As stated above:

      Day Four: Bananas and skimmed milk. Eat as many as 3 bananas and drink as many glasses of water as you can on this day along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates along with the milk, but on this particular day your body will need the potassium, carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen your cravings for sweets.

    im a vegetarian so what should i do for the beef days?

    1. Hi shelly,

      If you prefer, you can substitute grilled fish for the beef but on only one of the beef days. You need the high-protein in the beef the other days.

      You can use a meat substitute however I am unsure if this will give you as much protein as beef.

      I hope this helps.

  153. elsie says:

      1. Sugar says:

        How much fish can you have when substituted with the beef and can it be any kind of fish IE Oily like salmon or mackerel or should we stick to white fish?

        1. Hi Sugar,

          As mentioned above you can substitute grilled fish for the beef on only one of the beef days. You need the high-protein in the beef the other days.

          It is not stated which type of fish this should be therefore the choice is up to you.

          Hope this helps.

  155. H says:

          This is what is recommended on day 4 – 

          Day Four: Bananas and skimmed milk. Eat as many as 3 bananas and drink as many glasses of water as you can on this day along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates along with the milk, but on this particular day your body will need the potassium, carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen your cravings for sweets.

    1. Hi Jonesshareeta, 

      We would recommend you only season with pepper as salt can slow down your metabolism.

      I hope this helps.

  163. Janet says:

    Do the peppers have to be green or can you use any colour pepper?

      You can use any color peppers, you are not limited to green.

    1. Hi blue bell,
      You can substitute the beef with grilled fish but only on only one of the beef days. You need the high-protein in the beef the other days.
      I hope this helps.

      1. blue bell says:

        Hey..i dont eat meet chicken fish egg …..i only eat vegetable..

  165. july says:

    Hi, i have a few questions!

    firstly, on the beef days would it be okay to not eat anything but the soup? as i do not like beef. 

    secondly. is it ok to drink green tea as well as water whilst on the diet? 

    finally- why is it that “the more soup you eat the more weight you will lose”? i don’t quite understand how that works!!

    i am hoping to start on monday so please let me know asap,

    thanks 🙂 

    1. Hi july, 

      We wouldn’t recommend leaving out the beef altogether as red meat is naturally nutrient-rich which means it provides a substantial amount of certain vitamins and minerals. 

      Yes is it perfectly fine to drink green tea.

      I hope this helps.

  166. AnnieAnne says:

    Hi,
    Just starting this diet today and I´m confused about the recipe above for the fat burning soup. Is the recipe (6 onions, 2 green peppers and 2 cans of tomatoes) for one portion? Or is this the recipe for a batch? 

    Best wishes

    1. Hi AnnieAnne, 

      The recipe above is for the whole batch, depending on how often you eat it. Not just for one serving.

      I hope this helps.

      1. AnnieAnne says:

        Thank you!

        And do you have any recipes or recommedations for the vegetable days? Are butter beans and chickpeas allowed?

        1. AnnieAnne says:

          Are you allowed to season the vegtables with fresh herbs?

  167. Lissad says:

    Can I add salt and pepper to the food please

    1. Hi Lissad, 

      You can season with pepper however we wouldn’t recommend using salt as this slows down your metabolism.

      If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

      I hope this helps.

  168. John90 says:

    Hi! Very keen to follow this diet and see how it works

    Is it okay to drink green tea during the diet, assuming that I only add milk on the designated ‘milk day’?

    Also, do you have any suggestions on the meal plan? Should I be aiming to eat 5/6 small meals throughout the day, or stick to just a ‘standard’ 3 meals?
    On the fruit day, I ate fruit for breakfast and a morning snack and then the soup for lunch, evening snack and dinner with some fruit in between to keep myself from feeling hungry? Is that a good idea?

    1. Hi John90, 

      Yes green tea is fine to drink whilst following this diet.

      As for how many meals you should have in a day, we would say to follow the diet as stated above and as stated above try to eat the soup when you feel hungry rather than snacking on other foods.

      I hope this helps.

  169. Beckigilbey79 says:

    How much milk can you have?

    1. Hi Beckigilbey79, 

      We would recommend no more than 3 glasses per day.

    I have never really tried a diet before just tried to keep up regular exercise but the exercise has reduced recently due to busy schedule so I thought I’d give it a try, I have followed it strictly and within 2 days I was impressed with the results, I’m not saying it’s easy to follow but it definitely works, on day 5 now and afterwards I’ll keep up exercise and ease off the carbs. I would recommend this diet but stick to it after all it’s only 7 days.

    1. Hi Seanysean,

      We wish you every success following the diet!

  183. Rockie says:

    Hi i don;t like milk is it ok to leave the milk out or is there anything else i can take instead?

    1. Hi Rockie,

      If you do not like milk we would recommend leaving it out, however there is the slight chance that doing so could affect the end result of the diet.

      I hope this helps.

  184. Rockie says:

    opps sorry i’ve just read one of the comments that u add the tomatoes at end lol

  185. Rockie says:

    Hi i;m going to try this diet i was just wondering do you add the tin tomatoes when boiling the vegetables or do you add the tomatoes when the vegetables are tender?

    1. Hi Rockie,

      We would recommend adding the tomatoes once the vegetables are cooked through.

      I hope this helps.

  186. Gabs says:

    I followed this diet and it was very hard. The soup is not tasty at all and after a few days I was extremely sick of it. I did lose 3 kilos in 4 days but could not finish the diet as I was feeling very tired and unwell. And sadly I gained the weight back very fast.

    1. Hi Gabs,

      We are sorry to hear the diet wasn’t for you 🙁 however we do have other popular diets you could follow, please see the diets section of our website.

      Once you have finished the diet we do recommend sticking to a healthy diet with a little gentle exercise wherever possible to help maintain a healthy weight.

      I hope this helps.

  189. fatboy says:

  193. lm says:

    Why must you wait 24hrs after stopping the diet before drinking alcohol

    1. Hi Im,

      As we are not nutritionalists we cannot give reason for this. As the diet states: Go off the diet at least 24hrs before any intake of alcohol.Because everyone’s digestive system is different.

      Apologies for not being of more help at this time.

  194. lm says:

    On day 1 can I have raisins and tinned grapefruit?

    1. Hi im,

      You can have any fruit however we would advise against tinned foods as these contain additives.

      I hope this helps.

  195. LM says:

    also can i drink unsweetened fruit juices every day or just cranberry juice?

    1. Hi LM,

      We recommend you follow the diet as stated for optimum results.

      I hope this helps.

  196. LM says:

    Hi is the estimate weight loss calculated on a very over weight person? I weigh 136lb and wondered if i should expect to loose the estimated amount?

    On day 2 and 3, all the vegetables except dry limns peas and corns, and potato isonly allowed on 2nd day’s dinner. I am still worried about other starchy vegetables like other type of peas beans besides limns peas and root veggi. Better without all of them ?

    Hi, I’m on day four of the diet and it’s going alright! So far only a loss of 3lb but this may have been because I put less onions than stated? Would this be a contributing factor?

      Grilling the meat is perfectly fine and if you wish to make a stew with the beef and tomatoes you can do so, but you can not add any further ingredients.

      If you would like to follow Jenie’s smoothie soup receipes that is fine too.

    Ok, for the purposes of this diet, can we count “salad” items that are green and leafy, such as lettuce and rocket, as “veg” Can fresh chillies be added to the soup for taste, are they allowed? Finally, do mushrooms count as veg? Thanks!

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Mark,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Green leafy salad items are absolutely fine as well as chillies. In regards to Mushrooms they are classed as fungi not vegetables so we would advise you to stay away from these if possible.

      I hope this information helps.

      Hi kgb,

      The cumin powder is fine to use if it makes the soup edible for you.

  288. Gemma says:

    Hi, just started this diet today….and I must say…the soup is horrible 🙁 Iv had to add a lot of pepper so Im able to actually stomach it….is there another soup alternative that I could use?

  289. Slimming Solutions Admin says:

    Hi Shiva,

    Thank you for your questions and I will do as best as I can to help you.

    The diet states you should eat as many as 3 bananas on day 4, however if you cannot eat three, it is not a problem to eat 1 or 2. The diet states no more than 3 bananas should be eaten.

    On day five the diet states you should eat as many as 6 tomatoes, you can eat as many tomatoes as you like, but no more than 6. You should either have a tin of tomatoes with the beef or up to 6 fresh tomatoes.

    You should eat the bananas on day 4 and the tomatoes on day 5.

    You can add small amounts of salt and pepper to your foods if you require, but just in moderation.

    And on day 1 you can eat any fruit except banana’s and the soup throughout the day, whenever you feel hungry.

    We recommend that you try to follow the diet as closely as possible, without substituting if you can help it.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck with the diet and keep us posted with your weight loss results.

    I wanna start this diet right from tomorrow.

    I have a question please reply me as soon as you can:

    on day 4 it is said for 3 bananas to be eaten, isn’t it too much. I really cannot eat 3 bananas a day.
    or on day 5, six tomatoes a day! isn’t is much? or it means shall i eat 3 bananas or 6 tomatoes at once in a day or i can divide it in a day?

    about canned tomatoes, do you mean those canned and conserved tomatoes at shops and supermarkets?

    how about salt and pepper, can i use them every day on my foods?

    and one thing: you said for example in day one, i can eat all fruits except banana and i can eat soup all the day, does it mean that whenever i am hungry in day one from morning to night i can eat any fruit and soup i wan as the instruction?

    please reply me.

    Water to cover.

    I just sweated onions in tiny bit of oil and went from there!

    Also on banana/milk day I made a smoothies for brek lunch and dinner; chop up banana into pieces the night before and freeze. Add 1/2 banana’s, 1/3 of a 2pint carton milk, ground cinnamon and vanilla essence to taste to a blender and whizz for about a min. Lovely frothy smoothies! I made ahead and took to work for lunch, lost it’s bubbles and turned a bit brown but was still pretty tasty!

    I weighed this morning and hav so far lost 5lbs which I’m happy with! Good luck guys!!

  306. Audrina says:

    This sounds like a good way to lose weight. Im a big soup fan so this is convenient for me. hopefully i will lose a few pounds on this.

  307. jasmine says:

    i really would like to start this diet do u have to make the soup each day or is the soup enough 4 the week

  308. steve says:

  309. MJDaniel says:

    What is up!

  310. Susan Develin says:

    I work in an office of nearly 500 people. Around 400 of them are women and I would say that 200 of them have tried this diet. Most of us are fans of your site and have had some really good results on Slim Bomb and the inch loss body wrap. As dieting is our usually our lunchtime chat topic – your name comes up quite a lot.

  311. jazmin says:

    this sounds really hard but im really going to try it.

  312. lorna says:

    hey there whats is the actual recipe because ive seen loadsa different ones please x

  313. Taylorlk says:

    Im on the diet now. 4th day into it and your all right, ITS HARD. I am a fit athletic person and the first couple of days has may me feel less energetic than normal. However the pounds have stifted. What I have decided is to do 1 week on and 2 off so i can concentrate on fitness. Its does work if you stick to it. Bring on majorca in 7days! woop woop!

  314. marticsek says:

    i tried it. i lost about 13 lb in a week. I am having a week off, but i am gonna try it again. 🙂

  315. robert says:

    I’ve done this diet a few times. The best way to do it is to stick rigidly to the soup recipe and the 7 day plan. I’ve seen a few posts saying how they subbed this for that and cheated a bit and then are surprised that the diet didnt work. The soup in particular contains the right balance of veg that can instigate effective fat burning. adjusting the recipe adjusts the effect. stick to the diet and i can attest that you will lose at least 14 lbs. cheat and who knows. The diet is extremely difficult and you need to be in the right mindset. also, it makes exercising really hard after day 3 where your energy levels will be so low. it’s not for everyone and most females that have tried it, my wife, sister in law and mother in law have really struggled by day two-feeling dizzy etc.

  316. sarah says:

    i was wandering, could i just put tomatoes in the soupe?

  317. Lynda says:

    This diet sounds good, with all the comments that there have been with people, the diet seems very reliable. i might give it a bash and see how it goes. Wish me luck!!

  318. K80 Col says:

    Hi, my husband and I have been doing this diet and are now on day 5. My husband doesn’t like tomatoes. I have put them in the soup and as it is blended, he’s fine with it. Any suggestions as to what to do today when we need to eat beef and tomatoes? Can I add garlic, onions & peppers maybe to make a tomatoe sauce, do you think?
    Any suggestions greatly appreciated. I presume it is important to have to tomatoes as well as the beef!

    Hi all hope you all good………
    I encouraged a friend of my sons to have a crack at this diet 4 weeks ago.
    He started off at 21stone 3lbs, in 7 days he dropped to 19stone 1lb, quite a drop, so came off the diet for 2 days, using a mediteranean diet in this time, he put on 4lbs.
    Returned to the fat burning diet at 19stone 5lb, for a further 7 days, this time only lost 9lb, so down to 18stone 10lb.
    This time no rest, continued straight into a 3rd week losing a further 10lb, went back to the mediteranean diet, put 3lb back on so at 18stone 3lb going into the 4th week, havnt heard his achievements for this week yet but upto now he has done real good.

    Cheers Showtyme

  320. Slimdee Wannabee says:

    I’m feeling a little more inspired since reading your comments. I’m gonna start my diet tomorrow, so any moral support is going to be really appreciated.

    Also if anyone is starting round about the same time, I would be interested in hearing how they got on.

    Good luck All….

  321. harry says:

    i am gonna start this diet tomorrow, wish me luck

  322. Ayesha says:

    Hey all.

    Im on weight watchers and have lost 19 lbs(it has taken a few months).

    I found out about this diet yesterday and I have 4lb more left to shift, do you think this diet will work if I only do it for a few days and then bk2 my normal meals?

    Any insight greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

  323. Sean says:

    Will be trying this diet out from Monday…I will report back on the 15th with my results.

  324. Jim says:

    This is as good as it gets.

    Try it, you have nothing to lose other than your belly fat.

    I lost 14 pounds within the soup period of seven days,
    and six weeks later I have reduced by a further 28 pounds.
    This was not difficult, I just stuck to the 7 day menu and relaxed the menu a little after this time.
    I would point out that I am not a large person.
    So to all you people, who are going to buy the veg and the fruit, get on with it as it will be the best investment you will ever make. GOOD LUCK.

  325. Audrey says:

    Always knew it wasn’t a level playing field out there. After 3 days I had lost 3lbs – no cheating, wasn’t at all hungry. My friend had lost 6lbs, always hungry and had cheated. Maybe they will believe me now when I say my weight does not come from overeating.!

    How do you interpret the skimmed milk. Is this for the banana day only?

  326. Laura Parry says:

    I did this diet last week, and YES it does work! I lost 4kg!! After a hedonistic couple of weeks drinking every night with my friend, gorging on chocolate etc, I REALLY needed a good detox!

    I used all the ingredients from the local fruit and veg market as above. Couldn’t find onion mix so just added Oxo Vegetable cubes instead. I seasoned my soup with a few dry herbs and on occasions I threw in some Curry Powder and other spices.

    The best thing to do is just make sure you’re not starving yourself, always eat the soup when hungry. Preparing to soup initially takes time, so make sure you’ve made enough the night before so when breakfast comes, you don’t have to wait!

    During the diet I felt a little lethargic at times, on the banana day I had so much energy though! I went for a big run and did lots of exercises later. The next day I was very weak though, so don’t overdo it on excercise! I drank soooo much water on this diet, it’s unbelievable!

    I had skinless chicken instead of beef. I ate 4 fillets on day 6!

    I loved the veg days, I steamed my vegetables to retain all the nutrients and goodness. You then just add these to the soup, so tasty!

    The morning of day 8 (END OF THE DIET!) was amazing, My breakfast of muesli with eggs on toast was like pure heaven. I’d missed all my normal foods! The end of the diet makes you appreciate good food! I have no craving for sweets now really, just the urge to get back into a normal, healthy balanced diet.

    You shouldn’t continue with this diet for more than one week. You do lack some important essential foods whilst doing this diet. It’s a one week “fix” to get you back on track, then just continue a healthy diet, but don’t overdo it!

    BAD POINTS ABOUT THE DIET:- You won’t have a sex life for a week. I smelt like a bad rotting cabbage ALL THE TIME. My breath was toxic and the gases that came out of my other end were revolting. My boyfriend hated it and wouldn’t go near me! Just shows that the detox is flushing everything out of your system!
    It’s also unsociable, I missed out on a few social meals, you’ll miss ordinary food like bread and eggs!

    But the good outweigh the bad, I’m 4kg lighter, have a lot of energy. It’s only 7 days of your life, something you can tick off your “to do” list! I’d recommend to anyone who has a week off and nothing to do. !!!

    Go for it! and goodluck! 🙂

  327. Deborah says:

    I have used beef soy from the frozen food section at Asda instead of beef. For the low calorie soup mix I’ve used packet soup, the 10 calorie one from Morrissons has an onion flavoured version.

  328. aw says:

    Can anyone tell me what is low calorie soup mix?
    Is it just stock cubes?

  329. sonia arneja says:

    I am vegetarian I cant eat beef please let me know what can i eat

  330. BethJ says:

    So far, this diet is not as bad as I expected. I’m on day 4 and have lots almost 6 pounds! I came across a banana milk/smoothie recipe that is really good… and is good for the banana milk day!

    a cup of milk, banana, half teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a dash (or two) of cininamin (sp?)!

    I used two cups milk and 2 bananas for lunch… it’s filling and yummy! Also.. you may want to use frozen bananas, or leave the smoothie in the fridge for a while so it can get cold. and add as much vanilla or cinamin as you want.

    Cheers!

  331. Morgan-Alyce says:

    4 pounds in two days! This is the best diet ever and i love that you can eat as much as you want! I’m loving the soup, for those who hate cabbage (like me) i got this recipe from above. Will post it again so you can find iteaiser!

    26. kelly shenton | November 9th, 2007 at 6:09 pm

    i just have to add this is the recipe i was given slightly diff then above , how ever menus for day to day were exactly the same!!

    3 lrge onions
    1 green peppers
    1 bunch celery
    1 can green beans (I USED FRESH)
    2 pounds of carrots
    1 packet of low calorie dry veg/onion soup (I USED OXO CUBES)

    cover the veg in water

    i added garlic

  332. BethJ says:

    I started this diet today. So far it doesn’t seem to hard… I think it helps to just snack on the fruit all day, and use a variety of types of fruits (and veggies on the veggie day, etc.). I had a bunch of fruit for breakfast with some tea, a generous bowl of soup for lunch and have been eating handfuls of fruit whenever every hour or so, and I feel full! I’m going to try this out and hopefully kick start some weight loss, because my body has issues processing food, and so wieght has been an major issue for me. My aunt (who is a nurse) told me this is supposed to work chemically, so I’m hoping I will have some success! 🙂

  333. Preston says:

    My wife started the diet regime on Monday the 4th of Aug and i joined her the next day. So far on day 3, she has lost 2kg and i 1kg. Its looking really good. I had a bout of headache earlier toady, but thanks to God that has now vanished. For all those still contemplating starting, i’ll say get cracking asap because its all in the mind. If you remember that people survived without food after being trapped under rubles in the China Earthquake after 7 days, you will be grateful to God for giving you good health and a sound mind to consciously embark on a diet programme.

  334. Morgan-Alyce says:

    No one has posted on this diet blog for a month so i thought i would. I am going on this diet tomorrow using a recipe that somebody posted above as i made the cabbage one and i smelt so bad that out neighbors complained! Yikes! I am going to post again to tell you my progress as reading all your positive feedback persuded me that this is a good idea! That soup smells great!!!

  335. Jo says:

    Hey, im starting this diet tommorow to kick start a healthy eating switch over, as I want to lose 2-3 stone as I have gained alot of weight over the last few years. I have my friends wedding to go to in three weeks, so hopefully will see results by then? Goodluck to anyone else trying this at the moment. Love Jo

  336. MaryB says:

    Hi there. I am now on Day 7 of this diet which I got from this website. I heard about all the weight lost and got inspired. I weighed on the morning of day 4 and had lost 6 lb so was feeling great. However, since then I have been sticking to the diet but don’t feel that my body is changing. I feel bloated and wobbly! I’ll be doing my final weigh tomorrow morning so here’s hoping. Anyone else feel that they lost the most in the first half of the week and then tailed off?
    I have been doing a few sit ups, but should I be doing more toning exercises?

  337. Sarah Smith says:

    Hi everyone well it is 4.30 in the afternoon of day 1 and I am just starting to get a headache feel good apart from that though, but I think I will be sick of the soup by the end of the week!!

    I have decided to do 1 week on one week off so that I dont get bored of it

    If anyone else is starting this today and wants to keep me on the straight and narrow my email addy is dollydumbass@hotmail.com

    Ps do you think it will matter that I am going to a bowling party on Thursday night and am having burger and chips I dont expect to loose the 15lbs in a week that it claims you can but I am worried that eating bread is going to mess my system up

  338. rachel says:

    hi if anyone wants to start this tomorrow – june 24th – email me – lil_old_me__@hotmail.com – i could use a buddy to help me stick to it!

  339. Daphne Thomas says:

    Started diet on 19th as I said I would. Found day 2 the hardest. Didt miss wine as mch as I thought I would. But hey i have lost 13 lbs. My husbad only lost 7 lbs. Not stayig on it though but it has kick started me to be good. Good luck everyone.

  340. Mike Hunt says:

    This diet sounds great!
    Although it’s slightly misnamed IMO. I prefer the name “initial water loss diet” as in the first 7 days of most diets you can expect to lose 5 – 10 pounds in bodily water, not fat unfortunately. Get a good, aerobic exercise & a SENSIBLE eating regime & generally smarten up!

  341. Jamie Love says:

    Hey everybody, i am starting this diet tomorrow, but i cant seem to find a shop that sells onion soup mix? so iv made it without is that allowed? just made a veg stock. and also i could i use chopped tomatoes instead of canned ones ? please would some1 let me know, it would be greatly appreciated.i am currently 9st 10lbs(previously 10st 7 but dropped weight with going gym) and am hoping to get down to about 9st for my holidays in july. or somewhere around that mark. will keep u all posted and good luck to everybody starting this diet!!

  348. Karen says:

    I started this diet on wed 23rd april – weighed myself today and have lost 10 lbs!!!! unbelievble – 10 lbs in 4 days. Feel so much more full of energy, will definitely carry on with the soup on mondays to fridays until my wedding in september. Never stuck to diets before but this is so easy!!

  349. jacqui says:

    On day 5 of diet and lost approx. 5llb, found it really hard to begin with, even seeing a salad sandwich made my mouth water. However, stuck with it so far. I don’t like bananas so I liquidised them with the skimmed milk into a drink and found I quite enjoyed them. On the veg only days, I juiced carrots into a drink for breakfast and found this quite filling. Hope these tips can be of help and would welcome any one elses suggestions as I will probaby try again in a couple of weeks time.

  350. Jemma says:

    Hey, I started the diet today and so far so good. Went and did my weigh in and how depressing so thats just spurged me on, need to lose about 3 stone asap!!!! Let you know how i get on peeps

    can any one tel me,th correct diet to reduce my weight…

    thanks

  352. elena says:

    I cannot do this diet for 7 days. I only do it a couple of days once on a while and I lose 2 to 3 lbs. I keep them down with exercise. I find it easier to do it little by little but keeping the weight off.

  353. barbara jones says:

    where can I order the diet patch?

  354. jackie says:

    starting diet on wednesday keep you posted on how i go on

  355. D Lee says:

    Does anyone know if kindey beans count as a veggie? I’ve done this before and lost 8 pounds. My hubby lost 11 pounds. I found it also sort of reset my taste buds. I found that after this diet, other simple yet healthy foods never tasted so good. It made it easier to stick to a healthier lifestyle of eating. Anyhow…I thought this time kidney beans would be a little more filling on veggie day. Any thoughts?

  356. Kat says:

    I really need to loose these winter pounds! I’ve heard about this diet and can’t wait to try it! Still have to pick up the groceries, so I’m going to start this diet on Thursday. Is anyone else thinking of starting this week! Would be great to have a support team going! I’m not the best at sticking to diets!

  357. Emma says:

    HI
    Im starting the diet today as Im getting married in 2 weeks and really need to loose some weight quickly. Have bought the ingredients but was going to use parsnips instead of cabbage fingers crossed I can manage this will let you know how I get on

  358. Jerrie says:

    One more thing, and I will try not to make any typos 🙂 The baked potato is so important!! It helps you get through the day. Vegetable day is kind of hard but the results are worth it. The potato does not have to be for dinner, have it earlier in the day if that helps get you through.

  359. Jerrie says:

    I thought having headaches was just a problem I had, but I noticed that many of you are complaining of headaches as well. My thoughts are that there is such a drastic drop in the amount of calories from eating what I wanted to eating what is required on this diet that my body is just trying to adjust. I think everyone probably already knew that but I had to say it anyway. I’m starteing the diet on Sunday. and I’m so excited, I have had nothing but great results on this diet and it’s healthy. I finally found a way of eating that I can deal with. As I do this diet over and over I get very creative with the vegatable day. I sautee yellow, red, and orange bell peppers together because they taste sweet , its really a pick me up. I just use a non-stick spray and dump my veggies in the pan. It’s sooooooo good. I love this diet and I know I will lose a significant amount of weight!

  360. Diane says:

    Have just started on ‘the diet’ again today – had forgotten how hard the first day is with just fruit and soup!! Am so hungry at work – thank goodness it’s nearly time to go home!! I don’t think I’ll stick to it as rigidly as last time – but you never know!

  361. Isha says:

    Hi ppl just wondering, that I have a very bad stomach ache and is it ok to continue as Im a diabetic??

  362. ashley says:

    hi, i have done the diet in the past and lost 19 pounds in 2 weeks with a couple days break in between, which is fantastic considering i cant stick to diets! bad thing is i put the weight all back on within a few weeks of ‘normal’ eating! i am starting the diet again tomorro and with moderate exercise and some weights i hope to lose around 28 pounds by march 9th to fit into my LBD for my birthday!!! good luck my head is telling me! 🙂

  363. Laura says:

    And in response to this question:

    “19. jayne | September 20th, 2007 at 3:33 pm
    Has anyone tried this diet in conjunction with Xenical ?”

    Maybe you should consider speaking to someone about your impending eating disorder.

  364. Laura says:

    I have done this diet before with a s lightly different recipe.

    The one i found used Shitake mushrooms and dried seaweed (as has cleansing stuff in it) and i lost heaps.

    It also contained garklic which helped with the taste!!

  365. Pamela says:

    I am buying the ingredients on my way home from work tonight and getting started tomorrow I am doing this with a work colleague and hope to get the fantastic results wish me luck with sticking to it!!.

  366. Diane says:

    Just finished my week – I had lost 7lbs by day 5 and at the end of day 7 I was still stuck at the half stone mark but this doesn’t surprise me as no matter what diet I follow I never lose weight – I find I have to get active to shift it. However saying that I am pleased with half a stone and I’m going to eat ‘normal’ foods this week (although no bread,ptoatoes,etc) and go back on it again next week. I’ll try it week about to see if it might boost my metabolism. I can honestly say I have lost my cravings for bread, sweets, etc – it was like a detoxifier! I have noticed an improvement in my skin as well!

  367. Abi says:

    Hi,
    I am now on day 2, I feel fine. Last night Ifelt verv tired. I also used carrots instead of cabbage. I love the soup, I added chilli to it. I must say the banana and milk day is going to be interesting because I dont like milk and bananas. I am determined to go through with it I need to loose atleast 10pounds.
    Bye

  368. liz says:

    Today is day six, and I am happy to boast I have one more day to go, and my weight is down by 8kg. The most I have ever lost in such a short time. For those who are finding it hard the end reward is worth it. I will be doing it again after a few days break. My goal is to be 56kg again.

  369. Diane says:

    Now on day 4 – have lost 5lbs so trying to stick with it. Very tired however – just have no energy but when you think about all you’re eating – is it any wonder really? Is nayone still reading this blog?!

  370. liz says:

    For those of you who cannot drink milk, I am taking calcium tablets everyday, so I have no need for the milk. Also note that most veg & fruit have potassium. Speak to your pharmacy, about potassium supplements, if you cannot eat bananas. I have not felt this well in years with this 7 day diet. If the diet gets you down after two or three days, cheat and have a salad that evening with a very lean streak, or skinless chicken. than go back to the diet the next day. It has worked for others that I know on this diet.
    Good Luck

  371. liz says:

    i have lost approx 3kg in three days. For those of you who are getting headaches it is normal. They only last two days.
    For those of you who feel like giving up by the seond day, DON”T take a look in the mirror, and continue

  372. Diane says:

    Forgot to say – when I made the soup I added a chopped red chilli and some basil (fresh) and 2 garlic cloves – it gave it a bit of ‘zing’. Tastes really good – my husband even liked it.

  373. Diane says:

    I have started the diet today. It is now 11.35 am – feel a headache coming on and feel very tired – has anyone else felt like this. I have a gym orientation tonight at 8pm – don’t really know if I can face it! Would much rather go for a nice swim. I don’t know what I’m going to do about the day of bananas and skimmed milk as I’m lactose intolerant – I might just risk it for one day as I’ll probably be starving! My friend told me about this diet – she did it for 8 weeks and went from 12 stone to 8! I don’t know if I could keep it up that long – I may do a week on and a week off. Any hints or tips will be welcome.

  374. Rhonda says:

    Well, I followed the diet as instructed and lost 5 lbs. I was happy with 5 lbs in a weeks time. I stopped a day, and started back again today. If i can lose another 5…that will be great.

  375. Rhonda says:

    Today is day 2 of the diet. I lost 1 pound!! I’m excited about that and hoping for more tomorrow. So far so good…

  376. Rhonda says:

    I made the soup yesterday and started the diet. I love the soup. I am excited to see the results. Does anyone know if we can use sweet-n-lows in our unsweet tea? I did this morning, but don’t know if that is allowed. Thanks.

  377. Louise says:

    I made the soup but left out the celery out by mistake, any 1 know if this will matter?

  378. Crissy says:

    was wondering did anyone work out while doing this diet and lose more weight?

  379. Leanne says:

    Has anyone done this diet and maintained regular exercise, I am trying to go to the gym 3 times a week and I am concerned the diet will not give me enough energy to do this.

    Greatly appreciate anyone’s experience.

  380. BB says:

    I have adverse reactions to bananas. What could I substitute for bananas on that day?

  381. damla arslan says:

  384. Amelia says:

    Im beginning this diet today. Always find it really hard to keep to diets – have tried loads, but am hoping that fast results will keep me motivated. Am a bit confused as to how long you can keep doing this diet for. Anyone done over a long period of time?

  385. charlotte says:

    My hubby and I decided to give this diet a try. On day four, he has lost 9 pounds, and I only four. Food is not available at his work. I am a housewife and grandmother raising an elementary age child; therefore, my kitchen is too handy. I did better the first two days because I was out of the house getting items for an upcoming camp trip. We both are in our fifties and do not have an exercise plan. Our problem was needing a list of “vegetables”. He says a baked sweet potato would not count on an all veggie day. I think it would be okay as long as it is sweet potato and not a white potato.
    Any input on this. Thanks

  392. kelly shenton says:

    hey peeps well a friend has given me the recipe and it doesn’t contain cabbage head but contains 2ib carrot

    Eat the soup for breakfast. Being ‘attached’ to eating only specific foods for breakfast is an attachment (habit?) one can do without! The soup has plenty of great nourishment all by itself. Blend it into a creamy mixture and pretend it is cereal if you must.

  394. Samantha Leyland says:

    What i dont know about dieting i could fit on the back of a postage stamp, just thought this was another fad, even my doctor hasn’t recommended this diet – i cant believe i’ve lost 5lbs already in just 3 days, oh my god!!! i have about 6 stone to lose so maybe the dress i bought for last xmas (to diet into) may fit me this year instead – woo hoo!!

  395. penni says:

    I lost 8 lbs on this diet. But why don’t they give you any guidance about breakfast?? It’s particularly hard to know what to do on the day when you can’t eat any fruit?? Did anyone else try having cereal or something other than soup!! I guess grilled tomatoes would be ok but a bit odd on their own! I just had grapefruit or something – even on the no fruit day!

  396. jayne says:

    Has anyone tried this diet in conjunction with Xenical

  397. susie says:

    vegetarians can use aduki, mung beans or seitan, you can find them at whole foods or trader joe’s

  398. Tracy says:

    Tried to stick to this diet but found soup really horrible. I know why, its because I really hate celary. Definantly not for me!

  399. Katrina says:

    As a vegetarian what can I eat instead of beef and chicken?

    Thank you

  400. Tony says:

    I work out for 50 minutes 4 days per week and run for 40 minutes once per week. Will this diet provide me with the nutrition that I need to carry on my life style?

  401. stacey says:

    Hi Sherren I am actually going to start this diet on monday the 10th. I want to get this weekend out of the way first. If you wanna do it together from monday let me know. My email addy is smkirv81@hotmail.com

  402. sherren says:

    I am looking to start this diet on the 8th of september, it would be great to have someone to diet with, if you fancy some mutual support please reply and we can exchange email contact details.
    my mum had great sucess on this diet and lost 9lbs in a week i know she uses all the ingredients in this recipes, normal onions and adds spices to zest it up a bit. i have to say that you cant really taste any of the individual ingredients just a medley i thought it tasted of carrots!!! bit odd as there not in there

  403. lynne marsh says:

    just to say i went on this diet for 6 days and lost 9 pounds its easy to follow and very easy to stick to
    good luck to any one who starts it you have nothing to loose only weight

  404. Ranny says:

    Can I take cauliflower as part of my vegetables?

  405. jessica says:

  406. arae says:

    I can’t stand cabbage. Is there anything I can substitute?

  407. delah says:

    i think you are confusing the green of peppers with onions. i have made my big pan of this lushus fat burning soup and cant wait!i had it for breckfast, and by mid morning was already experiencing the noxious fumes of the cabbage.sorry to tell you.lots of gas!
    will tell you the results after day 7.my sister in law has lost 5lbs after 4 days!

  408. Saf says:

    I hav done this diet before and lost 8 pounds on it. i thought i’d try it again- I am now at day 5, having cheated once!! ‘ll weigh myself on Monday to see what the results are. I hope i’ve lost some weight after eating so much of the soup!!! I odnt like celery either but once in the soup and put through the blender you cant taste it!! good luck to anyone trying it!!

  409. George says:

    I have done the fat burning soup diet twice. I weighed in at 278 pounds before beginning. After the soup diet, and altering my overall eating habits following the diet, I now weigh 246 pounds, and still reducing. I went from a 46 waist down to a 42. I started in April, 2007, so it has been only 2 months. I have more energy, and feel great! Just had my annual medical, and everything is good! I highly recommend it!!!

  410. elmo says:

    Green onions? Doesn’t the recipe say “6 large onions”?

  411. Schmoo says:

    I don’t like celery. Does it matter if i leave it out of the soup?

  412. pragna says:

    I am vegetarian I cant eat beef please let me know what can
    i eat
    Thanks

  413. Dave says:

    Green onions and scallions are just immature onions that are pulled from the ground before a prominent bulb has formed and their tops are still green. Scallions are considered younger than a green onion because they should not have a bulb, while green onions should have a miniature bulb. Both the bulb and bright green tops are edible, and are sold in bunches. Recipes will call for using either just the white part, or both the white and green part of the green onion or scallion. Generally, the white part is cooked, and the green part is used as a garnish or in cold preparations. In a pinch you can substitute the green part for chives.

  414. shelley says:
