Haris is a registered Dietitian and Health blogger providing clinical counseling and writes under name of Bilaras on health blogs.

Give yourself a pat on the back. You've made it to day four.

This period in the diet can be tough. You've given up your favorite foods for three days already, and there are still three days after today. This is your "hump" day, but after today you will be more than halfway through the diet!

  • Note: If you don't like to eat bananas alone, feel free to blend the banana and milk together into a smoothie.

Day Four Menu

Today you should eat at least eight bananas, three glasses of milk, and one bowl of diet soup.

What Type of Milk?

Milk is a very important item for today's menu. Plain skimmed cow's milk is the best option. If you must have almond or soy milk, drink half as much as they are higher in calories.

Seven Day Diet Plan: Mind Over Matter

Some of you may already feel as if you have lost a few pounds. If not, don't lose heart. It is normal to experience some weight gain at first in a diet. Once your body gets used to the new routine, you should start losing weight. Changing your eating habits can be difficult, but there are many strategies to help you succeed.

Your most powerful ally is your mind! As you go through the day, remember that by eating different foods than usual you are setting different chemical processes into effect. This process will have an impact on your mood and your energy level. Try to stay focused, and read on for some tips to help you win!

Remember, losing weight is not only a battle against fatty foods, but it also challenges all aspects of an unhealthy lifestyle. Just as exercise requires discipline to endure pain and discomfort, so do diets involve mental focus.

Keep two diaries, the first about food. Document everything you eat. Remember, if it goes in your mouth, and you swallow, it should be mentioned in the diary.

The second diary is for your thoughts and feelings. Record how you are feeling physically and emotionally. Do not give any less importance to training your mind. It will play a major role in convincing your body to keep fighting and continue exercising.

At the end of the week, you will weigh yourself. Remember: Part of keeping your attitude focused is to focus on how much better you feel, not the number of pounds you have lost.

Tips for Success From Readers: Craving Busters!

Some answers to past questions about the Seven Day Diet.
• When you are hungry and it isn't meal time, eat an apple, make a tasty drink with honey, or make a vegetable plate with a little salt.
• Frozen things can distract from cravings. Try ice or frozen currants.
• Get out. When we stay at home and we're on a diet, we make it much harder. Take a walk with your diet buddy.
• It's better to eliminate a tempting food completely than to "cut back" on it.

• Do not use this diet if you are pregnant. During pregnancy, eat a healthy and balanced diet. After delivery start with my one month diet plan. After three months, try this diet to get to your desired mark.

      mirza i think i mentioned that you need to put you weighing machine away for a while. Problem is that when you decrease you food intake or calorie intake a self defensive mechanism gets activated preventing a sudden weight loss. So just follow things as they are and you'll get results.

      Edward Harris MSc 4 years ago from Earth

      a bowl is what you'll make for a whole day and it can be served in small servings . As i said that small multiple meals help a lot. For example i used cups as they are measurable. Plus there is no hard or fast rule on how much soup you can have, just don't starve your self if you have a job and routine to follow.

      Also I haven't weighed myself, but my "loose" jeans became tight overnight. And I mean really tight. Would I retain that much water??

      @slaver sorry but i answered it in a different hub. I think you ask the same question there. Olives and whole garlic cloves are good you can have them. About you jeans are you sure you didn't shrink it in warm water, because you should lose weight not gain it. Anyhow follow the plan exactly as told and weight your self on day 8 early in morning and let me know.

      @samara cabbage and lettuce are really good food as they kill your hunger and give you less calorie. I have published a calorie chart article and you can check it out for low cal alternates.

      Edward Harris MSc 4 years ago from Earth

      @jt heads represent the ration 2:1 is your ratio you can reduce the amount of cabbage and lettuce accordingly. It also depends on variety that you use. Just use them the way you like but the ratio should be 2:1.

      @fran banana replacements are not only hard to find but also too expensive. I would only recommend banana but you can cut the amount you eat. You can also try cantaloupe for change.

      @joolzz some time when people eat less they skip the key ingredients like on one day there are 6 tomatoes and on another day there are lots of bananas . I recommend having at least quantities mentioned specifically. Once body accepts diet schedule as part of your routine then you tend to lose more weight . So be patient and continue with this plan .

    • Bilaras profile image

      @Angel no.. but over eating chilli will upset you digestive system and you may lose weight in form of water content which is not good.

      Cypher 4 years ago

      Not sure how I'm supposed to cook an entire shredded cabbage in only 3 cups of water, so i doubled the water and it's still not covering all the cabbage. Also added frozen spinach instead of lettuce cause eating wilted lettuce in soup sounds pretty gross, and spinach is healthier anyway. I added a couple tablespoons of miso cause I don't want to eat watery soup. Hope that's ok.

      bilaras what is your background?I have been on this diet 3 days now and have already lost 5 pounds. If you're not in the fitness industry I think you should absolutely be. I'm so excited to have found the site and diet. I only wanted to lose 10 pounds but I was having a hard time and this has made it much easier. It's not to say this isn't hard to stay on but seeing weight come off the way it has is amazing. I lost weight yesterday and I had very teeny tiny bites of pizza for my kids birthday...just to taste it but i never has a full bite.

      Good Afternoon,

      Thank you for providing this diet outline. I am surprised and very happy with how energetic and healthy I feel despite the pounds that I have lost.

      Perhaps in the future, to both save you time and to provide us readers with more meal options you could add a section into the diet plan outlining approved food alternatives and what to do in case of transgressions.

      I find myself looking for ways to mix and match the list of approved foods to entertain my taste buds. If I hadn't read that post about mixing bananas and milk to make a shake I wouldn't have realized that this could be potentially dangerous for wight loss.

      Also, I find the "diet add-on" section very helpful!

      Hi...

      Tomorrow will be my Day 4.

      So it will be 8 bananas + 3 glasses of skimmed milk + 1 bowl of vegetable soup (for whole day)

      In 3 days I don't think that I have lost any weight, as I am away from weight machine as you suggest, but hoping for the best, fingers crossed.

      I have few questions, firstly can I make a banana shake (using only banana & skimmed milk), I am asking as I have heard that this is used for weight gain. (Just to inform I have a weight gain tendency)

      Secondly, if not a banana shake then can I eat both banana & milk together, lets say in equal quantities in breakfast, lunch & evening, and then soup in dinner or bananas & milk has to be taken separately...???

      Last question is: With 8 bananas, 3 glasses of skimmed milk & 1 bowl of vegetable soup, can I add any more bowls of vegetable soup...???

      Also to inform you, I am also doing a 1 hour workout everyday & I have heard that work out with banana + milk helps in weight gain. So I was worried....:( :( :(

      I would appreciate if I get an answer by today itself, as it will be easy for me to plan for tomorrow.

      Thanks

      Hi,

      My little one 6 months old and I am still breastfeeding her. I would like to lose about 20 lbs of baby weight and I think this is a great diet to help me. I know I have to drink lots of fluids to help keep my milk supply up so this is perfect. Seems like with this diet plan I don't have to worry about being nutritionally deprived especially since I am breastfeeding exclusively. I do have a few questions though:-

      1. Can I drink Mother's milk tea in conjunction with the green tea? I drink it plain with no sugar/honey. It helps me maintain or increase my milk supply.

      2. Can I substitute a baked sweet potato (medium size) for regular potato? Sweet potato has beta carotene along with other nutritional benefits which is great for me and my baby. Or is the sugar content too high?

      3. I couldn't get any pomegranates due to the season here. Is there another substitute or if I omit this fruit will it adversely effect my results?

      I plan to start tomorrow so I hope to hear from you soon.

      Thanks!

      @Fiona plain milk is fine and organic farm milk is even better, Sweet potato is good to but also have the regular potato. Replace pomegranate with any kind of citrus available . You can also have kiwi fruit if available. I prefer boiled potatoes over baked potatoes but baked are good too . Don't go for berries or other non common fruits like Dragon fruit.

      I lost 3 pounds on 3rd day and gained 1 pound by the time i woke up on day 4, meaning I only lost 2 pounds and I have 3 more day to lose 8 pounds which I'm assuming is pretty impossible unless I chop off a ligament and throw up repeatedly. What's with that? Does this diet guarantee that anyone of any size (even people that are fairly skinny already) can lose 10 pounds in a week.

      you guys complain too much... if you cant do it then don't do it, you're just not gonna lose the weight ...ive done this before, it was actually the "cabbage soup diet" (same exact diet plus all u can eat cabbage soup) i was fine for about 3 days then the smell of cabbage soup literally made me wanna die, so I cut the soup (sometimes drank broth) and continued with the rest (only for 5 days in total though, lost willpower) and I still lost 10 lbs I still haven't gained it back months later either :) (the trick to not gaining it back is SLOWLY getting your body used to different foods again, so your metabolism can speed back up) good luck everyone..oh yea and stop bitchin ;)

I read your comments and wonder why. I feel I'm doing this hard work for nothing but I comfort myself because it's very healthy stuff and I looove eating healthy. So I'll keep on doing it and see later on. :) And Bilaras! You have an incredible patience in order to be able to answer everyones comments! And at times same questions are asked repeatedly!

      @Valerie Doiron Thanks for reading my work. Normally people do get results in first four days but some times they don't . Like you mentioned that you love eating healthy so i am assuming that change in diet wasn't a big change for you . May be that's why you haven't lost any significant weight but i am hopeful that you will get results by end of day 7.

      Hey, I started your diet and I reached day 4 of your diet plan. After I ate four (4) bananas my stomach began to feel woozy and after that it went downhill. I got really sick; fever, weakness, stomach pain and headaches. I ate nothing else after that for the day. Today (day 5) I feel much better should I continue with your diet?

      Note: I always had an aversion to bananas but it never made me sick like that before.

      Could it be the bananas that caused this reaction?

Usually I only eat fruit, veggies and meat/fish, egg whites. I do not eat any bread or other dairy products. I only drink water, tea and coffee. THANKS SO MUCH!!! I think this may really happen.

      @veronica first of all keep your thyroids in check . Secondly start preparing your own fruit at home by yourself . Follow this diet plan it will give you a jump start with great results . Weight loss varies a lot there will be good weeks and bad weeks . Follow above plan for 2 weeks then switch to a more balance and easier diet plan. Never eat too much in a single sitting and always save a part of your hunger. Take a small 10 min walk after each meal.

      I am in love with this entire diet, however I am unable to drink milk. Is there any substitution you recommend? As for the rice, can there be a quinoa substitution?

      I absolutely hate cabbage. Is it necessary in the soup or would another vegetable soup be acceptable? Also can I have almond milk instead? Starting the diet tomorrow with my husband. Thanks!

      I'm on day 4 and I thought the soup would be gross (I don't like cooked veggies) but I'm pleased, it's actually really good. To be perfectly honest I don't even miss meat :) I've eating somewhat healthy even before starting the diet, but so far I haven't registered any weight loss. I'm in to til the end though so we'll see on Sunday.

      I have lost 5 pounds so far and going to start day 4! I've followed this diet before and got great results. If you follow every day and only eat what your allowed in the menu throught the day it works!

      I just started day 4 have followed very strict instructions in this diet. I am 5'8" 200lbs before starting this diet. I have lost 6 lbs and for the first time in years I woke up with an erection this morning. I am so happy. Please explain this new found happiness for me. Is it because I am dieting?

      Jim your hormones are just getting the chance to do what they should. sometimes extra fat prevent your normal body mechanism. this can happen with girls too. when they are too little or have extra fat it unbalances their period. good luck
