Lose 10 Pounds in a Week: Day Six

You are so close to your goal! Do you feel hungry? Remember: You will feel better if you drink green tea, wait an hour, and eat a big plate of veggies.

Today is another vegetable day, but you can also have a small bowl of boiled rice. Avoid oil, butter, or cheese but do feel free to use some lemon juice, salt, and pepper for flavour. The soup and salad recipes from days two and four are perfect for today, but make them fresh for today. No leftovers!

Day Six Menu

Vegetables (raw).
Salad or soup (one bowl).

Boiled rice (one cup).

Day Six Beverages

In addition to ten glasses of water, you may drink:
• Green tea (with honey or without)
• Coffee (black or with skimmed milk)
• Weight-loss drink (see recipe below)

Weight-Loss Beverage

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.

Drink three cups of green tea a day to help burn up to 80 calories.

Green Tea is one of the healthiest weight-loss drinks. Three cups of green tea a day can help you burn 80 calories. Imagine burning calories while enjoying tasty and fabulous green tea! Look for an organic variety. If the taste is too bitter for you, try sweetening with honey.

A little lemon juice and salt does wonders to the flavour of fresh, raw veggies.

Day Six Exercise

Remember, exercise gives you an extra edge when trying to lose weight. Without exercise, you may lose up to 12 pounds on this diet. With exercise, you may lose even more. Continue taking a brisk walk for 30 minutes walk every day, but increase the time if you can.

Sometimes we are so fixated on our tummies and overall weight that we forget about our arms. If you are losing weight, you may have noticed it in your shoulders and arms. Watch the video below for some exercises to help tone those newly-thinned arms and shoulders!

Hi, I was wondering if I could do more exercise ? Like an hour in the morning and an hour at night. I really need to lose weight and I didn't think 15 mins of just walking would really help me I feel I wanna exercise more. Thanks:)

Bilaras 4 years ago from Earth Author

yes that would be great. 15 min is a minimum

SashkaSalvatore 4 years ago

I've been holding on to the diet plan very strictly, I've even been eating less and walking for 60 minutes every day, I also did some exercise for about 30 minutes per day. I'm 18, 5'5 and weigh about 127-130 pounds. Please, tell me why this isn't working on me when I should really lose 10 pounds to look 'perfect', I'm on my sixth day and haven't lost any weight.

Bilaras 4 years ago from Earth Author

it may be because your not already overweight. Still if you want to shape up i would recommend swimming and abs workout instead of walking and other workouts. It would help your body shape up perfectly. Continue with diet plan it would help loose any thing extra.

Made it to day 6 and when I checked yesterday I'd lost just over 5 pounds. I have been enjoying the soup but wondered if I could blend the vegetables to make it thicker. Perhaps it alters the composition of the vegetables. Any thoughts?

For day 6 We can eat as many vegetables as salad or soup as we want

Bilaras profile image

Bilaras 3 years ago from Earth Author

@razz you should have lost way more than 5 kg . Make sure that you are getting the right amount of sleep and on right time. Don't stay up too late and don't over sleep in morning. Have your meals on ideal times. Like breakfast on 12 noon would not be a breakfast. Try adding some easy work out routines and a brisk 10 to 20 min daily walk.

Thanks for creating the plan and i will stick try to follow my modified diet for 8 more days. :) btw, is falling sick part of the detox process? I have been feeling really tired and went to the toilet to urinate multiple times. Today, I have a low fever. my experience with weight loss is that there is always and plateau period and after a while, if i persist with the diet, the weight will drop overnight!

Hi, im on day 6 I think I have lost 5 pounds but won't weight myself till the end of the diet. I have done everything as instructed. I am not overweight, but i gained in the last 4 months 10 pounds that I wanted to get rid of. I train for marathons so I run every day for like an hour. Can I do another 7 days of the same plan starting with day one? Do you recommend it? Will it work? What do you suggest when done dieting, do you have a plan when done loosing the desired amount of weight?

can replace rice with couscous??

Bilaras profile image

Bilaras 3 years ago from Earth Author

@Ra'eesah that's complicated but for fruits go for juices and for vegetables go for blended vegetables. For bananas you can have shake and for tomatoes you can again blend them to make them drinkable.

Bilaras profile image

Bilaras 3 years ago from Earth Author

@Rax make sure your meal timing is correct . I mean three or more meals but on proper timing . No results is very rare but reasons i found normally are thyroid problem, too much stress, lack of water intake, misinterpretation of diet plan, cheating and smoking.

Anamika 3 years ago

Hi Bilaras,

I am on my Day 6 and following your diet very strictly, I lost two pounds in first two days but after that i didn't lose any. From day 3 i am weighing same weight.

Just one day left for 7 days, it is not possible to lose couple ponds in two days right? I don't understand people are losing so much weight why not me? I didn't even cheat on my diet a single day.

Craigger 3 years ago

Would love to know the sparkling water answer. I have lost 12 lbs as of the start of day 6. Down to 312. This is below where I have been over the past 7 years, so it is a huge success. My new goal is 308 by the end of this regime, so 4 more lbs... Felt hungry yesterday with some high stress situations, but had some green tea to compensate with dealing with the stress instead of some high calorie option.

Cypher 3 years ago

Could not manage to get down 6 tomatoes. Only ate 2 fresh with my rice, and I could barely choke it down. Was put off from tomatoes for the rest of the day except what was in my soup. There must be something I can substitute for the tomatoes, or something I'm allowed to eat with them to make them more palatable. I even spiced them up a bit and they were still too gross. Will not eating them impact my diet too much? I seem to have stalled out looking at the scale this morning.

maryann 3 years ago

I'm on day 7 and down 7 pounds. I expect I'd lose maybe one more pound tomorrow, but I'm going off the diet today. Not because of anything more than I'm going out to eat with friends tonight and I know I'll cheat. I feel great. Even though I didn't reach the 10 pound mark, this diet was TOTALLY worth it. It got me over a hump and a pound a day is amazing. I'm hoping once I can start exercising, and eating right I can maintain this loss and I WILL go back on this diet one more time before the end of April as we are going away and to be honest even though it was hard, I liked that there was no animal protein. I like chicken, meat, eggs, etc., but my doctor told me my kidney stone was caused by animal protein and not enough water intake. This diet solves BOTH issues. It's amazing.

is pressure cooker cooked veggies are healthy enough to use for this diet? I cook veggies and make soup using pressure cooker. Or it's better eat raw veggies? Thanks

@whydaz raw is always best option but sometimes you just get tired of all that crunch so yes you can boil them a bit.

Dino 2 years ago

I am on Day 6 and just about to start this day. I had no problems following the diet so far. In fact it has been easy. I am not used to drinking such large quantities of water, but must say it really takes away hunger. I wake up in the morning feeling full. So far, starting at 141, I am now 135.4. - 5 lbs. I weigh in at the same time everyday, after I get up in the morning. I did go to the gym yesterday where I noticed a loss in strength. Not much but still noticeable, so added some egg whites in the evening. (I know, a faux pas, but I would rather do that than eat the rice). It is possible that this may have an effect on further weight reduction, but I really do not want to lose lean muscle mass, so will continue the next two days with egg whites added instead of rice. Will report once finished at day 7. I am 5.7, and my goal is 128, so will continue this plan for another week.

Janine 2 years ago

Dino 2 years ago


just read previous comments in the thread. It is tedious when people are asking the same questions over and over.

Anyway. I am now on day 7. Lost another pound and a half from yesterday, despite incorporating protein over the last two days. Just about to start this last day and will report back tomorrow. So far 7 pounds shed.

Dino 2 years ago

All done. Final day lost one more pound, so all in all 8 pounds in 7 days. Not bad since I tweaked the plan. 134 lbs at weigh in today.

Now doing another week!

Bilaras 20 months ago from Earth Author

@need help first of all stress is not good for health. Depression and anxiety make you eat more and gain weight. So first thing you need to do is get busy, do something you love, Make friends, meet people, travel to your favourite place. They all help.

This diet plan is quick and easy to follow, do this one for two weeks then move to my 30-day diet. Workout routine helps with managing stress. Any change in lifestyle comes with a challenge. Just dedicate two months to your health, eat healthily and don't over eat. Once your body adjusts to new healthy diet routine you'll easily lose weight.

@Pinkish change in diet and multivitamin sometimes cause indigestion, it is safer to stay with a diet change for a start. A wide mix of fruits and vegetables can easily supplement vitamin pill.

Thank you for this plan!! I know this might sound like a minor thing ... but I am trying to follow your plan to a "T". I am very addicted to coffee and my work doesn't really help the tea addiction either. I do try to substitute coffee for Rooibos tea but not successful all the time. I however like almond milk a lot. I do have no calorie sweeteners like stevia and the no sugar Torani. Can almond milk and the above sweeteners be a go? If not I understand and will do my best to keep away. Thank you.

I am 5"4, I weigh 184Ibs. I started this diet on 7/14/2015, I lost 4Ibs on day one. I lost 3Ibs on day 2, but from day 3 when I started taking vegetables, I seemed to have gained the 3Ibs I lost on day 2 On day 4, the banana and milk made me so full that I could take 2 glasses of milk instead of 3, and 7 bananas instead of 8. I steep 3 bags of green tea in 10 glasses of water and drink it daily. I also drink a cup of green tea with lemon and honey every morning. Although I have not lost much weight as I anticipated, I feel very good, I have so much energy now from day 4. My bloated stomach has deflated, and I can now see my toes when I look down. My blood sugar is perfect, and because I feel thirsty most of the time, I drink my green tea water religiously. I intend to do this for 2 more weeks and rest one the third week. I now weigh 180Ibs. Will keep y'all updated.

I mistakingly forgot 3 of the tomatoes yesterday! Oops! Everything else I've been following closely. The first few days were hard with cravings and headaches, but the last couple I've been feeling great! It's been a long time since I've felt great! So thank you so much for sharing this detox. I feel it's already helped me tremendously in just 5 days. Tonight I have a dinner party I hadn't accounted for when I started this, and I am reluctant to go. If I go and keep portions small, and hit the gym beforehand, then finish up with day 7 tomorrow, do you think that will be alright? I have weighed and have already lost 7 lbs. I'm really happy with my results so far. I was really hoping to get to a 10 lb. loss, but the way I feel is the best reward, honestly.

Waiting for response

Bilaras profile image

Bilaras 12 months ago from Earth Author

@Adeel I recommend this diet for 2 weeks and then you must take a break, From 3rd week start a balance diet and add strength exercise to your routine. Join a gym or fitness center and do workout on alternate days. For example do strength training on Monday take Tuesday off and go back again on Wednesday. Diet alone may not be sufficient and starving yourself would only do worse than good.

This diet is very effective. Certainly the best and easiest I have ever tried. the first time I did this I lost 9.2 lbs and I ate more fruit and vegetables then allowed. This time I am on day 5 and I have lost 6.4 lbs with two days to go and I supplemented 30 grams of protein powder every day. Plus I am still eating more soup,salad,fruit and vegetables then allowed.

Jess 5 months ago

For comment readers: It is day 6. I do not enjoy the soup whatsoever (I love me some flavors and don't do bland well). There was no way it was happening for breakfast so I ate a potato like I did on day 2. Went to the gym and made it through weights just fine but had some major issues with running. I found it exhausting and got a little wobbly. (I have been going to the gym 5-6 days a week for the past 5.5 years so it is not due to trying something new during this diet). I ALMOST gave in to the protein bar in my purse that was SCREAMING my name, but my pride and bullheadedness would not allow it. Instead, I ended up eating 3/4 of a bag of snow peas. Ha! "Cheated" while I was making lunch for my son with a slice of orange, a couple slices of kiwi and a few grapes. Oh well. The soup was not happening again so I ate a brussel sprout/raddish salad with vinegar and smoked sea salt. I am still VERY hungry but eating anymore vegetables would make me gag. I just want a giant strawberry smoothie with avocado!!!!! I. Need. Fat. Soooooo, my take away is, this is not great for someone who is already healthy and fit. My idea that this would be a good cleanse is not panning out either for now I am constipated due to the low calorie consumption and lack of fat (I need both for regularity). But again, with only one day to go, I will proceed.
