You made it. It is day seven!
If you have followed the diet plan you should have lost 10 pounds. You should also notice that your skin and digestive system feel healthier.
You may also feel depleted from eating less food than usual. Start your day today with fruit and fruit juice to boost your energy and help you to stay focused. You're on the home stretch!
Day Seven Menu
Fresh orange and/or grapefruit juice.
Boiled rice (one bowl).
Diet soup (one bowl).
One apple and one grapefruit.
Raw vegetables (your choice).
Fruit Juice and Healthy Weight Loss
Start you day today with fruits and fruit juice. The quantity is up to you, but your goal is to keep your blood sugar up so you can stay focussed on your daily routine. Use fresh juice or make your own for the best nutrition. Best juice choices: grapefruit and orange.
As always, drink beverages about an hour before eating and not during or after your meals.
After losing weight on a healthy diet, you will want to keep the pounds off. You won't want to waste all of that hard work.
- Include fruits in your ongoing diet. The best choices are watermelon, figs, strawberries, bananas, apples, oranges, berries, and plums.
- Next, add vegetables to your diet. Eat salads full of healthy options like onions, carrots, and cucumber. Eat leafy, green vegetables. Try out all kinds of vegetables, but remember to limit potatoes.
Keep Up Your Healthy Routine
Reaching your desired weight is a great achievement, one that can be met only with a lot of hard work, perseverance, and dedication. Weight struggles are very common and many people fail to achieve their ideal weight. Maintaining a healthy weight isn't a destination, it is a journey that requires a daily routine.
While you are on a diet, you change your eating habits and exercise daily. What would happen if you maintained those new habits in your daily life? It won't be as hard as it was this week since now you are prepared and know what to expect.
Psychologists who study obesity say that there is always a reason we gain weight in the first place. If this is true, then when we are losing or maintaining weight, we should try to understand what triggers us to reach out to food for comfort. Once we understand that, it is easier to break the habit.
Exercise and Maintaining Healthy Weight
Exercise is essential to maintaining a healthy weight. We must exercise for at least half an hour each day for five days of the week. It would be easy to let yourself go back to old habits after meeting a goal, but quitting an exercise routine will result in a big setback!
All type of exercise will help you burn calories, but some burn more than others. Start with a light routine and keep your weight in check by weighing yourself on regular basis. Once a week is often enough. If you gain some weight, then you need to step up your workout and reduce calories.

Keeping it Off: Balancing Proteins, Fat, and Carbs
One way to keep weight off is to avoid carbohydrates and boost protein consumption. Include salads, vegetable, and fruit and you will be able to create balanced meals. Remember to:
- Plan your meals ahead of time. Having a schedule will help you control what you eat.
- Don't skip meals. Getting too hungry often leads to over-eating.
- Eat moderate portions. No food will do any good if the portions are too big or small. Things done in moderation are always good. In controlled portions, even enjoy desserts and chocolates are alright from time to time.
Another effective way to maintain weight is to keep track by using the bathroom scale. Once a week is enough. Remember that:
- The key is to be stress-free. Take it easy and don't over-obsess about your weight.
Eat good carbohydrates and proteins:
- Go for lentils, black beans, and chickpeas. They are high in protein and fiber.
- When eating grains, choose whole grain bread, muffins, rice, and pasta. They are much more nourishing than white-flour foods.
Keeping It Off: Dealing With Cravings
Maintaining weight is hard work. You can have cheat days where you give yourself a treat. You earn it! After a week of staying careful with food and exercising, it is important to give yourself a little break for a day, and enjoy your favorite fattening meals—in moderation. It is important to remember to keep it fun and easy, so maintaining weight can become a part of your life and not a headache like losing weight.
If you struggle with cravings for fatty or sugary snacks, however, it is best to eliminate that food entirely. For example, if you are trying to stay away from fries, cut them out completely to stop the craving.
It is hard to have just a "couple of bites" of something you love. You will never let go of the fattening snack. The cravings will increase and one day you might lose control and have yourself a full plate of tasty fries—not a good way to maintain weight!
I am not suggesting that all snacks should be avoided, because a healthy diet should have little wiggle-room. Snack responsibly. Indulge in fruit salads and protein-packed yummy treats. Find a healthier alternative to the "bad" foods you love and enjoy them.

Hi. Can we have sweet potatoes in this diet. because they are not really potatoes and are considered as a "Superfood"
What about Avacados as well?
Edward Happer MSc (author) on June 02, 2019:
For all 7 days link refer to this article.
Sheila on May 29, 2019:
What brand of honey should I buy? Does it matter what kind?
sbalsamo on November 10, 2018:
As I sit here on day 7 eating mini red peppers for my snack, I have to be honest and say I don't feel like I lost weight. But I do feel better. I have higher energy and I feel my mind is a little clearer. I'm not looking forward to weighing myself tomorrow. I think it will be a buzzkill.
Veronica on September 08, 2018:
Feeling delighted weigh in this morning i didnt quiet lose 10 pound but i lost 8 and a half absolutely delighted thank you so much for this diet.
Veronica on September 07, 2018:
Cant wait to weigh myself tomorrow this is day 7 and i stuck to the plan each day.
David Coward from Pensacola FL on September 02, 2018:
I did it!
Lost 11 pounds
Lisa on August 24, 2018:
Can I do this for two weeks? I'm happy with my results. Also, are almond butter or nuts allowed?
Hana on August 03, 2018:
In day 7, are the two types of food per meal to choose from or both per meal?
meaghan on June 30, 2018:
I cannot eat tomato's I am allergic- is there any substitute?
Andi on June 22, 2018:
I have a bunch of health, and therefore food related, issues. Still, I stuck to this as close as I could and lost exactly 10 pounds.
While I already eat mostly fruit and veg with few processed foods, the difference for me was the schedule. I really enjoyed eating smaller meals every few hours. Also, though I only had a small amount of sugar before, cutting out all sugar (other than the natural kind present in fruit) really impacted how I feel. Avoiding liquids right before and after eating felt better too. I’m definitely incorporating this into my life.
The strict pairings of foods has peaked my curiosity. I’d like to learn the science behind any benefits to them. For example the tomatoes and milk meal day, or the 8 bananas another day. Is it even more beneficial to continue limiting the combining of certain foods consumed each day? I would appreciate further reading that’s available about it so I can understand and continue to follow it.
Jo on June 12, 2018:
I can’t eat bananas can I change them for something else?
lose40in8weeks on June 11, 2018:
Well that was great!
I went from 111.9kg to 105.9kg = 5kg! 11 pounds!!!
I swam a mile on Day 2 and Day 3 and 20 minutes riding each of the other days.
Got an ear infection from swimming otherwise would have kept swimming.
Will do week again after ear infection clears. Not taking antibiotics.

Lana on May 23, 2018:
What will I eat if I already finished this diet?
Shay on February 12, 2018:
On day 1 and the temptation is real. My manager placed a candy jar on my desk for the rest of the office -,- It’s tough.. but I haven’t broken! It’s almost my engagement party and if I lose 10 pounds I’ll almost have my goal weight!
Edward Happer MSc (author) on February 03, 2018:
Lisa on February 01, 2018:
I finished my 7 days!! I lost 4 pounds. Which kick started my exercise and clean eating lifestyle!
Danielle on January 05, 2018:
Just curious? Why can we not have leftovers of the soup? After the 7 days is up if I make the diet vegetable cabbage soup is it ok to eat leftovers, or will it make me gain weight?
Anagha on November 03, 2017:
I lost just 1 kg in 7 days. Still I am happy with the result. I didn't do any of the work out mentioned. Anyway my health seems better because if all the fruits and vegetables I was forced to eat.
Jerry on October 06, 2017:
I followed exact routine and I lost 6 lbs. Thank you so much for such effective diet plan. Keep up your good works. I'm on second week now. I am satisfied with the result as I bearly lost 4 lbs in 10 days with other diet plan. You guys rock!!!
Natalie on August 11, 2017:
I followed the diet exactly. Only lost 5 pounds. And that soup made me throw up.
Dawn on July 24, 2017:
I'm on 2 tablets that cause weight gain. On my first week I lost 4.1 pounds being 1.9 kg. I altered a few of the recipe's to suit my own taste and went out for dinner one night choosing vegetables, rice and fish. Im still really happy with my result and doing it again. Thanks
Hiba Hadjadj on July 23, 2017:
Hey , I need to lose 15 pounds in 10 days , I will start this diet tomorrow and I hope it works , I just want to ask if I can cut onion from the the salad , and if I can replace grapefruit and orange with something else :)
Grace on June 22, 2017:
Can you exercise during the diet ?
Tota on May 23, 2017:
I lost 2,5 kg which is fine now I am 47kg I am happy with this diet plan I will take a break and continue.....:))))
Mam86 on May 21, 2017:
I tried this as friends lost 10-15 lbs. I lost only 1! I was so upset.
Rick on April 26, 2017:
I was very sceptical if another diet. I have struggled for over 25 years with my weight. I stuck to it. Did not eat anything bad or not advised. I was 14st 11.8 at day one. Weighed myself this morning and I am 14st 3. I feel loads better and don't really have any cravings at all for sweet thinks or savoury.
The first 3 days were really hard but by day 6 and 7 I was into it and felt like it was my normal diet.
Will have 2 week break then do another. Thank you so much for all the tips. Keep going people and be strong.
Terri on April 05, 2017:
Is it okay to have mushrooms on vegetable days?
sasha on March 20, 2017:
Yippee! 10 lbs in 7 days! it was easy to follow and I was never hungry. This is the first diet that I went a whole week without cheating. I am 5'6" and went from 149 lbs to 139 lbs. I am going to eat sensibly today, probably have some potein (chicken or salmon) and continue on diet for 3 more days before I leave for vacation.
Naina1988 on March 07, 2017:
I weighed myself on the 8th morning and I've lost 8 pounds. Thank you I'm so proud of myself did so well
Malia on February 28, 2017:
I did complete all 7 days following the diet exactly. I didn't lose 10 lbs, but I did lose 6 and am happy with that. That said, I think this diet - and the suggested recipes - are way more unpleasant than necessary to still achieve the chemistry suggested.
Bilaras - do consider partnering with a chef to tweak your recipes to be more flavorful and also including some alterations for variety. For example, for lunch on day 5, rather than separating two tomatoes, a small bowl of rice, and the same soup/salad recipe from previous days - why not a salad that combines the rice, some lime juice (instead of lemon), the tomatoes chopped along with some onion, green chile, small amount of boiled corn and chopped cilantro for a tex-mex inspired salad? Same ingredients...just more taste. Or what about boiling fresh garlic clove, ginger root and bay leaves along with the soup and then removing before you eat for more flavor? Just a few examples, but if one is going to make the soup and salad recipes fresh, a little variety can go a long way to make this diet much more palatable.
Dana Lauren on February 28, 2017:
I don't like milk at all. what can I drink other than milk on the milk days?
Also, is it ok not to have any protein at all during these 7 days?
How does the sugar in all of the fruit not make you gain?

How do i download this

@Cori soup recipe is on day 4 meal plan article.
Cori on February 15, 2017:
I would like to see the soup recipe, is it available?
Charlie on February 04, 2017:
Today is Day 7, but I only lost 1.2kg. It's pretty disappointing after going through this very tough diet.
Jhybiscus on February 03, 2017:
I like this diet b/c it forced me to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. I am now considering going vegetarian. What is your opinion about incorporating Tofu and other substitute protein sources into a balanced diet?
Francis on February 02, 2017:
So far, so good. I'm concerned about Day 5. I'm not suppose to eat tomatoes because of the seeds. I substituted red pepper in the salad, the soup I can strain, what, if anything, can I do with day 5?
Telsy on January 30, 2017:
If i eat grapes and mangoes on the first day...is it owk or shld i start again
samgh on January 29, 2017:
where can i find a menu?
Michaela on January 23, 2017:
I have only lost about 4 pounds, though I'm trying to lose those last frisky 10 - 15 pounds, so that's hard, but I've been on this diet couple of times before and it always worked, though don't forget to keep eating healthy and modestly afterwards or the weight will come back.
Jazz on January 22, 2017:
So disappointed. Lost 1 pound
Lstew73 on January 08, 2017:
I am starting this tomorrow, but I am adding some meat. Chicken breast and a little fish. Cutting all meat from your diet is not healthy.
Andy2005 on January 02, 2017:
On day seven and I've only lost 3 lbs :( I followed every single step. Even stayed in for New Year's Eve to avoid temptation. I know 2"3. Lbs is better than nothing but I really thought this would have better results as it sounds so convincing and the diet is not particularly easy. Sad gal :(
Vasiti (Fiji Islands) on December 23, 2016:
This Diets very effective, I lost 5kg in seven days. Sticking to the diet and a bit of exercise. It wasnt easy but very worth it. I feel lighter and healthier. Thankyou.
S on December 22, 2016:
I have just finished my 7 days and I lost 9lbs!
I didn't follow the diet exactly, as I wasn't hungry enough to eat all those bananas on day 4 and some of the fruits were different because the time of the year. HOWEVER I'm super happy with the results! Just the kick up the bum I needed.
Edward Happer MSc (author) on December 10, 2016:
@valentina no wine or beer and yes its normal if you are full at lower quantities.
valentina on December 08, 2016:
Can I drink wine or beer in some point? Second I'm in my first day and I just ate 1 grapefruit 2 oranges 1 apple and one 3 cups of shopped watermelon and I'm not hungry at all an is 9 pm here it is that normal?? thank you so much!
Edward Happer MSc (author) on December 08, 2016:
@Kristen reduce the number of tomatoes and add them to a fresh green salad mix without dressing.
Edward Happer MSc (author) on December 08, 2016:
@Did i would recommend a very careful balanced diet with fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. I would also recommend a mix or pistachio, almond and other nuts for winter. Major diet changes by mothers may effect babies. So just to be on safe side go for workout and balanced diet, It works better in long run.
Kristen on December 06, 2016:
I really hate raw tomatoes they literally are me gag- but don't mind them as much when they're cooked. Can I cook down my tomatoes or do they have to be raw?
Jane on December 05, 2016:
I lost 7 pounds the first week. I cheated (holiday party) and had 4 bad carb based snacks but I did eat before the party to lessen my chances of messing up. I'm super happy and doing this again. Thanks for these articles!
Did on December 05, 2016:
Hi... I'm breastfeeding mother (baby is 11 month). Can I also try this diet plan
Lau on November 07, 2016:
I love this!!!best lifestyle best way to start fresh n feel wat food does for u n how it truly makes u feel I lost 20 lbs this summer n still loosing more :) thanks so much!!!
Katy on October 25, 2016:
Anyone have trouble eating all the fruit?!?! I didn't eat 1 of the apples and 1 of the oranges (or any watermelon) on day 1. I would have puked! I ate when I was hungry and tried. I hope it doesn't derail the end result. I'm a big coffee drinker...when I get hunger I have a cup if it's not time to eat. I felt lighter already after day 1. Less bloat for sure! Energy has been steady so far which surprised me. Not sure if I want to do this for 2 weeks - may add more protein. Still will stay around 1200 cals a day though.
meowinocent on October 20, 2016:
i dont like raw vegetables can i eat saled ?
Sania on October 06, 2016:
So I have followed the diet exactly except that on day 4, I had scrambled eggs for breakfast but I walked for an hour after that! I'm on day 7 and still have lost just 4 pounds.. do you know what it could be Biliras? I'm disappointed at this point! I'm going to continue diet for today and finish my day 7 but I don't know why isn't it working for me!!
Bilaras do you have any advice for me? Please reply!
Ana on September 16, 2016:
Today is day 7 for us, started this diet with my mom. We have been following very strictly, however the quantities mentioned are too much food for us so we eat what we can. I know it says we are not to weigh ourselves until day 8, but I mean we were able to abstain from weighing ourselves for 6 days! The news is that we each lost 5 pounds! We will for sure continue strong and do another week.
Edward Miranda on August 24, 2016:
I am not sure what I did wrong. I am a 25 year old male i started the diet weight 229lbs on on day 8 i weighted 228. 7 days of vegan eating following the diet exclatly as it says and only lost 1lb i feel hear broken. All of that work and efford....for 1lb.
Sera on August 18, 2016:
Can I eat sweet potato instead of potato?
Izzaty raihani on August 14, 2016:
I lost 8.3pounds but i'm really proud of it!
MadelynnB on August 08, 2016:
hi, I was wondering if you are required to eat everything that is listed for each day? It seems like a lot of food! Thank you!
PS, Please reply asap :)
Mg06095 on August 07, 2016:
Hi all, completed my 7 day diet and lost a total of 12.2 pounds. I started off at 208.8 and weighed in this morning day 8 at 196.6 pounds. It was a great experience and hope to do another week. Looking to lose 50 pounds total before my 50th birthday in October. Taking a day off before starting week 2. This new way of eating does work.
Amy on July 25, 2016:
Hi Bilaras, I am 24, at present weighing 140 lbs at 5''00. I am planning on starting this diet from tomorrow as i have to loose 30 lbs by august 25th 2016 as its my sisters wedding and want to fit on those selected outfits. My only question was can i keep this diet up for coming 3 weeks from tomorrow with a break of 1 or 2 days in between those 3 weeks ?
Mom of teenage boys on July 25, 2016:
Today is day seven. I am 51 years old, started at 149.2 and weigh 144 today. Followed plan almost exactly, no deviations but can't eat all that watermelon or vegetable salad. exercised about 16 miles on treadmill. Feel tired today.
Is it okay to try a second week without a break. In my mind, I need to get into the 130's before I switch off to a less intense plan. But not sure if this is okay due to the incredibly low protein consumption.
Hannah on July 17, 2016:
I tried this diet all week and I feel so great now. Well it's still day 7.... but anyway. I haven't lost the 10 pounds but I did lose 7 pounds which I think is still a pretty awesome number to loose in just one week. Defiantly going to do this again and try reach my goal. I really recommend it to anyway thinking about it
Stephanie on July 02, 2016:
I completed this diet as of today and lost 4.5lbs. I'm 22 at 5''2 and I am now 10 stone exactly.
I am a little disappointed with the results, however I know I didn't follow it correctly and I repeated 1 day because I had a "binge day" half way through. (Went to Wimbledon!)
I'm considering repeating the diet but I always lacked energy and there was always too much food to eat! Thank you very much for posting this though and I am sure I will return to it again - the soup was lovely too. Definitely will be making that again!
Mr & Mrs H on June 30, 2016:
It worked for both of us - brilliant. Thanks
Praveen G on June 28, 2016:
I couldn't achieve 10 LB range. But I have reduced 6.5 LB with this diet plan and I am really happy about. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.
Adyla on June 27, 2016:
Hi I did not eat watermelon or pomegranate so I switch them in for an apricot and mangos does that work? And I only eat 3 apples not 4 ? Well that affect day 1 for me?
Edward Happer MSc (author) on June 23, 2016:
@Chelsea its better to eat the quantities mentioned for best results.
Chelsea on June 22, 2016:
What if you're not hungry should I still eat to reach the amount of things like fruits and veggies givend? Or does the amount not matted ?
Iaisha on June 20, 2016:
I loss 12.5lbs
Veronica on June 18, 2016:
This really works! I'm doing it for the third time in two years and it is fantastic!
You lose from 8 to 10 pounds, I am 52 years old and I am thin frame, diet requires too much food for me and I eat just until to feel full.
Do it! It works!
Mel on June 07, 2016:
I need to lose 10 pounds in a week for a pool party and I'm very excited to give this a go
Hegt on May 29, 2016:
Can I have a protein bar no sugar as a snack?? Thanks !
Jess on May 24, 2016:
Bilaras, I understand and agree that a big loss up front is a great kick start for those who need it. I am the one who put certain expectations on it for myself and in no way hold you or your plan responsible. I was simply throwing it out there for others, like myself, who are looking for a quick fix for an up coming trip or such. I was just looking to cleanse and drop a few pounds but I should have probably tried something else since I am already a healthy eater. I am addicted to lemon water now, so thanks for that. Ha!
Edward Happer MSc (author) on May 24, 2016:
@Jess this diet was designed for a short motivational kick start towards a healthier lifestyle and i have plenty of articles on balanced diet and what actually works in a long run. Healthier way is not always the most encouraging one, so i tell my members to start with this one and once they get pumped up i add workout and other food items.
Jess on May 24, 2016:
It is day 7. I have been checking my weight every morning just to see the process.
5' 7" s/m framed female, starting weight 135
After fruit day, I weighed 132 thanks to all the water loss.
The following days I fluxed between 134 and 132.
The morning of day 7 I am sitting at 133.
This is not ideal if you already lead a healthy life style. The hunger, lack of energy, muscle soreness from lifting and lack of protein to rebuild, constipation from lack of calories and fat make the 2 pounds a slap in the face (especially since I will likely see those 2 pound back by next week) and my hope of cleansing from this backfired thanks to the constipation. My stomach doesn't need as much food to feel full, though, so there's is that.

Can i replace grapefruit with pear because i can't eat grapefruits i have allergy with it please answer me
Edward Happer MSc (author) on April 19, 2016:
@Felicia holly yes two weeks straight. Also avoid wheat, corn (all corn related products)and sugar(all sugary drinks and bakery items) and have very little amount of rice if you really have to. Eat vegetables and fruits throughout the week. You can have meat on Friday and Tuesday. Use Barley porridge with milk and honey 3 times a week only for breakfast. All this combined with workout will get you a healthy weight loss.
Felicia holly on April 18, 2016:
I am very over weight but I'm going to begin this tomorrow . But i need to lose a lot more than 10 lbs could you do this diet for multiple weeks ?
Edward Happer MSc (author) on February 21, 2016:
Please support this post by sharing it with friends and family :) Thanks for your feedback.
Danii on February 21, 2016:
This really works! I have doing this diet for years now! Always worked and lost around 3-5 kg each time! The first time is always the most difficult however don't be afraid to eat whenever you feel hungry. I always found the second day to be the most difficult every time I did this diet, however the best thing would be to take the honey and lemon drink in the morning and a boiled potato when I feel hungry. The sugar intake from the honey and lemon is a good way to keep me going. Also, always keep some carrot sticks handy just in case you're out and about and you feel hungry. Another reason why I love this is because of the coffee- I never stopped drinking my coffee, maybe I would have a cup or two without milk however I never was denied my cup of coffee! It's one of the best Detox plans- always been a great way to kickstart my diet! This time I'm going to try it for two weeks in a row! I'll tell you my results :) Good Luck to all of You! X
DrDodi on February 14, 2016:
hello, I'm working on my weight for more than a year, I've never loss more than than 3 Kg. in a month!
with this diet I lost 2Kg. in a week!! equal 4.4 pounds!
I'm so satisfied and started round 2 of this diet today.
my problem with this diet is there's no enough snacks so I divided each meal into two so I can keep my energy and metabolism up
Happy grandma on January 02, 2016:
Hi. day seven and just lost 4 pounds. I'm happy with the result for I'm living in Indonesia having a hard time to get some ingredients.
You should have seen the faces when day six i had to eat out, couldn't bring any salad. I ordered a Gadogado in the food court, said skip the lontong(sticky rice) the krupuk, the peanut utterance and the tofu.
Definitely going for another week after a pause.
charmy on December 26, 2015:
will it also work to reduce extra breast fat simultaneously?
Kainat on December 04, 2015:
My sister and I are starting this tomorrow! Super excited. My main problem is my big fat tummy. My body is great, but ALL my fat goes to my stomach and it's always bloated. Hopefully will have a flat tummy by the end of it! Gonna go buy all the groceries tomorrow! The comments of everyone's success is getting me very motivated.

Can I eat avacado? It is a fruit but do I eat it on fruit days for veggie days? Or not at all?

@S77M This hub was published 5 years ago and all other websites copied and modified it to their own versions. Meats are good but there is no such thing as fat free meat, even the lean cuts have their fair share of fats.

this was originally called GM's diet plan or something similar. It has changed some over time. Why has it changed? It used to be beef and 6 tomatoes on day 5 & beef & veggies on day 6 and brown rice and veggies with some fruit juice on day 7. You were also allowed to use about 1 tbsp olive oil to sauté veggies or on your baked (not boiled) potato. Please tell me the reasons for the changes. Or, where can I find the original plan? Oh, also, what happened to the soup recipe? I don't see it in this one. Not so happy about not finding the original diet I used. I have used it and consistently lost 11 lbs every time I do it. It's been a while so I was going to review the soup recipe etc but this is quite different than the old link.

I am starting day 4 this morning and am a bit disappointed. I lost 2.6 pounds the first day and the next day I added .2 pounds. I have not weighed myself this am. This morning I am still+.2pounds. Following the diet to a tee and am exercising an hour a day faithfully. Am I inpatient? Will the weight drop all of a sudden
