Lose 10 Pounds in a Week: Day Five

Updated on October 14, 2015

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

You have reached day five, which means you are more than halfway to your goal! Some of you may feel as if you have lost weight (don't forget to keep that scale in the closet until day seven). Do keep in mind that weight-loss varies from person to person. The first four or five days of any weight loss plan can be quite tough and sometimes discouraging. Take note of how much better you feel because you are eating well!

Be sure to eat at least five apples today.
Be sure to eat at least five apples today.

Day Five Menu

Breakfast
Lunch
Dinner
One grapefruit.
One small bowl of boiled rice.
One bowl soup from Day Four recipe.
One apple.
One bowl of salad from Day Two or Day Three.
One apple.
One orange.
1/2 glass skimmed milk.
Two tomatoes.

Two tomatoes.
 
Do not eat cherry tomatoes today. Find some medium-sized organic tomatoes.
Do not eat cherry tomatoes today. Find some medium-sized organic tomatoes.

Tomatoes are a key part of today's menu. Make sure you eat six of them, either all at one time or separately during different meals. Do not use cherry tomatoes. Choose six medium-sized, organic tomatoes. You can add salt and pepper for flavour. Do not use preserved tomatoes from a tin.

As for the other fruits on today's menu, use fresh only. Change according to what is in season and do try to find fresh citrus.

If you eat the salad or soup, make a fresh batch for today.

If You Don't Like Tomatoes

It is perfectly alright to blend them up and drink them. Add lemon juice, salt, and pepper for flavor.

Day Five Beverages

Drink 1/2 glass of skimmed milk today.
Drink 1/2 glass of skimmed milk today.
• In addition to at least 12 glasses of water and 1/2 glass of skimmed milk, you may drink:
• Green tea.
• Weight-loss drink (recipe below).
• Coffee (black or with skimmed milk).

Weight-Loss Drink

Mix two tablespoons of honey into a glass of warm water. Add three tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Mix well and drink before breakfast every day this week.

Eat Small Meals Often to Avoid Over-Eating

Organize a scheduled meal plan so that you won't go hungry. When we get very hungry, we are more likely to over-eat and cave into junk food and cravings. That destroys the hard work of the day or even the week!

  • Eat a small meal every 3-5 hours to keep your appetite under control. This is especially important at the beginning of a diet, when we struggle with giving up many of our favourite foods.
  • Exercise portion control. This is a big part of managing a routine of meals every 3-4 hours. Spreading out calorie intake is easier when we keep our portion sizes moderate.

Tips for Success From Readers

Some answers to past questions about the Seven Day Diet.
• When you are eating something, try to chew your food more and eat as slowly as you can. No need to rush through your food.
• Always buy fresh fruits and vegetables from a local market. Do not stock up for the week. Get a fresh supply every two or three days.

      Hey, I was wondering what was considered a small bowl of rice? Half a cup? And is it 6 whole tomatoes? Can we put some salt and pepper on them? I am going onto my third day tomorrow and just want to clarify things in advance!

      Hope this all works out for me! I'm getting really discouraged with diets :(

      well problem with having coffee and tea is that they are not healthy when taken with meals. However to avoid coffee withdrawal problem you can have coffee at least 40 min before any meal.

      I want to thank you for this diet. I've been on the roller-coaster for years, and this is something that I can incoorperate into a lifestyle, and plan to. All cravings for sugar, fried food, and fast carbs are completely gone by day 4. I'm not going to lie, the first 3 days are HARD, but just the first time around. The first week, I cheated the night of the 4th day because I wanted to have supper with my husband who was deploying the next morning. I still lost 8lbs in that 4 days. I didn't gain anything back in the 5 days I was off, because my portions were smaller, and I didn't want it. This is day 5 of week 2, and I've lost 9 more lbs. This is definitely the lifestyle change I was looking fot. THANK YOU!!!

      me again, I think avocado is considered a fruit but could I have it as a fruit and as a veg? Also, how much is too much? Can I have a whole one in a day? Mixing avocado with cold mixed veg. makes them so good.

      Wow. I'm starting day 5 and I'm down another .8 pounds. Last night was the lowest amount of weight I've lost. So far every day was 1+ pound but yesterday I also felt the fullest. The soup is amazing and felt like a real treat. You cannot say this plan doesn't work. I think I'm down close to 6 pounds and I'm on the 5th day. If I make it to day 7 and get to at least 9 pounds, I'll feel like I've accomplished my goal. The plan for the following week is to not overeat and KEEP it off.

      I also did NOT exercise. I have had two surgeries and that is limiting me so this weigh loss is amazing considering I didn't exercise. I'm going to try to do some crunches today as that doesn't impact my foot.

      Hi! again lol! I've been drinking about 3 0r 4 cups of green tea /day with a little honey and lemon. Is this a good thing or not? I know you said to drink the green tea once per day in the morning in my earlier post, but before starting this diet, I used to drink a lot of coffee and I'm kind of substituting the green tea in place of coffee. Also, by drinking 3 or 4 cups of green tea/day, the honey can add up to alot more calories, yes or no? Please respond, and thank you

      For my soup I sautéed the regular onions plus some green onion sprouts in hardly any spray oil, which made it much more flavorful! Then before I added water I added tomatoes to sauté with the onions, then I added salt, garlic powder, and a pinch of ground pepper. After that I added the carrot and cabbage. Very flavorful, wonderful soup. I didn't add any more calories but I enhanced the taste by far. Letting the veggies cook by themselves before adding water is best, just boiling will result in a bland soup.

I'm a cheese fanatic and a donut enthusiast, so not having either was scary for me at first. I thought I couldn't do it but now I'm even considering doing a 2nd week.

      Excellent diet. Followed it and lost weight. Worried about maintainance but have decided to follow 17 day diet. Very similar to this but has 3 steps where more foods are introduced and the 4th and last maintainance steps lets YOU introduce foods to you diet. Like this plan it works. Good luck!

      @j plain white rice boiled in water to make them soft. Do not over boil them or they'll stick together and taste even worse.

      @Smartygurl123 term you used that you "feel fat" concerns me . Have your thyroids checked go for a full body checkup. Some time minor hormonal imbalances can cause disturbed life and can be avoided by a healthy routine and proper medication. You are right about weight loss result they vary from person to person but i wouldn't worry about numbers if something makes me feel good.

      i weighed myself and still only 2lbs less of my original weight. I think i should have lost atleast 4 lbs by now.

      @Manal yes you can cut down quantity but remember that you must have sufficient amount of water. You have to be careful about your water intake . Don't have too much water and too much food at once . When you open your fast have water and lots of water with date, after that take a break and then go for a meal .

      Hello this is my first diet ever I'm 30 and I can't seem to lose weight off of 138lbs and I'm 5' foot. How many oz of water do I have to consume.? 6 or 8? I've been drinking 5-6 tall glasses? If its small glasses then does that mean I've been drinking 10 to 12 glasses? Am I drinking the right amount? Can I have Perrier water? Please help. Also I think my portions of this diet plan that im strickly follow may be to big but I only eat when I'm hungry. Am I ok?

      @Shanbam any type of glass will do the job . Whole idea is to drink a lot of water but not right after meal, give at least 30 min to hour before you have more water. Rest your doing good don't worry about water quantity just keep you self hydrated.

If i do a diet i do it like it is.. A lot of questions of people asking can i eat this or blah blah.. Do the diet like it is or do not expect to lose weight like you should with this diet.. Missed to eat something or you add a little something.. Do not expect the same results.. Thats it.. Do it like it is or don't do it.. Thats call willpower, if you don't have that just eat a little better during a whole year and maybe you will loose the 10 pounds.. " sarcasm" hi im on day 3 and eat a large pizza with fries but eat brocolli as vegetables, its that ok?.. Or i have to start again?..im gonna lose the same weight?..

Along with this diet I do 1/2 hour on my tread climber, the beach body abs and arm weights. I had to weigh in this morning because my jeans are loose on the waist. When I started this diet I weighted in at 157 lbs, this morning I weighed in at 153lbs WOW!

      Are you suppose to have 5 days of intense liquid diarrhea? I have been drinking the amount of water I'm suppose to, so I'm not dehydrated, but no one else on any of these posts have complained about the horrible diarrhea. Or the intense stomach cramps all week.

      I read a similar diet online. The 5th and 6th day was 3 oz of 4 servings of chicken with tomatoes then chicken with veggies the next day. Then on the 7th day the only thing it said I could eat was this soup. Is that better or should I follow this one instead? No rice in the diet.

      3. Can i have little bit of coffee( milk + 1 teaspoon sugar ) on day 4

      Ho bilaras. Im on day 5 of your diet and have followed ur diet plan exactly. Ive eaten everything and exercised as u have recommended. Im always great at starting new diets and my body reacts well to all sorts. In five days i lost 9 pounds with ur diet but day 5 was just too much for me. I felt so weak and about to faint. Literally felt asif i was going to pass out. The tomatoes were toomuch and i just felt like i couldn't cope. As much as this is a great plan maybe it wasn't ideal for me as i am used to more protien and what not. And thw thought of having just fruit and veg is making me feel sick.

I also don't have any tomatoes for sure or possibly grapefruit..I'll check. Please answer, should I continue.or just eat nothing for the rest of the day to fix it? Please answer ASAP!

      @Fefee weight varies throughout the day. Normally morning weight is lower than evening weight. To record a change in weight, compare weekly results (eg. Every Sunday). Diet changes may take time to produce results for some people. Don't be discouraged by numbers, they will get better with time. Just stay on healthy diet and keep on trying it eventually works for every one. Are you sure you are overweight ? Please refer to my height and weight charts just to be sure.

      You know you need to increase your fiber intake, and adding fiber-rich foods can put you on the right path. Any type of rice has fiber, but some have far more than others. In general, opt for rice with color, such as brown or wild rice. If it’s white, it’s been heavily processed and most likely isn’t high in fiber.

    • Bilaras profile image

      I am doing this as a cleanse with the hopes of losing a couple vanity pounds. My normal life consists of mostly plant eating with a little clean eating (quality animal products) thrown in and some treats now and then. I am at the gym 5-6 days a week. I am 5' 7" and 135 pounds (pre cleanse). I am strong and healthy. I have been craving fat like crazy (it is day 5). I put avocado in a strawberry smoothie on day 3 and it was like heaven. My typical breakfast is a healthy smoothie. Lunch is a large salad. I am dying for my old breakfasts and can barely gag a vegetable down right now despite the fact that there are very few vegetables I don't typically eat. Just a little insight into how this is working for someone for those of you who read the comments.
