Expert Advice for Weight Loss

I discovered this diet plan when I needed to lose weight quickly. I had a fitness exam and needed to lose five pounds, but I wanted a healthy weight-loss plan, not one that would tell me to starve myself. This plan worked for me, and if you want to lose ten pounds in a week, you have come to the right place.

I am a registered dietitian and nutritionist. My focus is to promote whole food nutrition, so you will not find any weight-loss medicines or supplements in this diet plan. The only things you need to lose weight are healthy, fresh food from your local market. I own a nutrition clinic where I provide healthy eating and exercise counseling to families to help young children maximise their growth and health potential. I know all about the weight-loss pills on the market. Most of them are unhealthy and cause nausea, diarrhea, and other serious symptoms.

Follow this plan carefully and you will likely lose 10-15 pounds. This diet is healthy. It is all about losing weight by controlling your food intake. You will lose weight and also notice some positive effects on your skin and digestive system.

Lose 10 Pounds in a Week

Overview of Allowed Foods
Day One: Eat only low-sugar fruit today. No bananas! Choose apples, pomegranates, and any citrus you like. Drink 12 glasses of water.

The Seven Day Diet Plan: Menus and Expert Weight-Loss Advice

Weigh Yourself Now, Then Wait a Week

One very important rule: Put your scale away for the week. That's right. I don't want you to weigh yourself for the entire seven days of the diet. The reason for this is to focus on how much better you feel rather than on the number of pounds you lose. At day seven you can pull out your scale and step aboard to see how many pounds have come off.

On day one you can eat any kind of fruit except bananas.
On day one you can eat any kind of fruit except bananas.

Eat Only Fresh Food!

On the second day, eat all the vegetables you want.
On the second day, eat all the vegetables you want.

On the second day of the diet, eat any type of vegetable you want, as much as you want. You can eat them either raw, in a salad, or boiled with salt and pepper.

Seven Day Diet: Frequently Asked Questions

Many readers have benefited from this diet. Read the comments section below to read success stories and questions that others have posed. Since many have tried this diet before you, I may have addressed your question already.

With that in mind, I have compiled some of the most frequently asked questions, and my answers, here to help you succeed with your goal. You will find more frequently asked questions and answers on the page for Day One.

  • Why do people get different results with this diet plan? Medical conditions can play a big role in weight gain or loss. It is important to understand any medical conditions you may have before going on a diet. Many different issues can lead to abnormal weight gain, including thyroid issues. If this is a concern for you, read this article on hypothyroidism and its effect on weight. Mental health issues can also lead to weight gain or loss. If you struggle with anxiety, you may experience abnormal weight gain. Make sure to ask your doctor for advice about how to manage the anxiety without over-eating.
  • I am hungry and light-headed before bed. What should I do? Eat some fruit before bed, take a five-minute walk, sit down for about ten minutes, and then go to bed.
  • Is alcohol allowed on this diet? No.
  • Can I continue the diet after the first week is over? Yes, you can continue for two weeks. Then take a break for a few days and continue again for another two weeks if you want.
  • Is chewing gum allowed? Yes, sugar-free gum is allowed.
  • I am on day four and I am very discouraged. I don't feel as if I am losing any weight at all. I encourage you to complete the seven days. Don't be too disappointed if you don't lose all ten pounds. Every body and metabolism is different. Do be careful, however, to follow the diet exactly. Don't eat less food than is recommended in your effort to lose weight as that will throw off the diet's chemistry.
  • Can I substitute anything for rice? Yes, you can have a potato, quinoa, or millet instead of rice.
  • I messed up on day two. Should I go back to the day one menu or can I just repeat day two again? If you mess up or cheat a little, just repeat the day and continue on from there.
  • I am fasting for Ramadan. Can I do this diet? Yes, but you will have to spread your meals out. Drink cold water at 4 a.m. Wait 15 to 20 minutes and eat a big meal with the foods on that day's menu. Then at 7 p.m. when you can break your fast, drink another glass of cold water and wait 15 to 20 minutes. Eat another meal. Repeat through the evening, eating small meals until bedtime.
  • Can I substitute store-bought low-calorie soup for the homemade soup? No, it is best if you make it yourself fresh for the day you will eat it.
  • Can I eat less than the recommended amount? Yes, only if you feel satisfied with less food. Do not starve yourself, it will add an unwanted stress to your mind and when people get stressed they adopt bad eating habits. Like more frequent meals and large portion sizes (1).
  • Where is the soup recipe? Yes, soup recipe is on day four article but you can always add your own healthy ingredients to make it more tasteful. Just stay away from heavy oil drizzles and premixed store formulas. Bone broth can also be added to this soup provided it’s homemade.
  • So how does it work? High trans fat diet causes obesity and other health issues (2). Fat deposits under your skin makes you grow in size and weight. To lose weight you need to cut back on fatty high calorie foods. Some so-called health experts recommend cutting down on all types of carbohydrates, which I believe is the big mistake. Not all carbohydrates are bad and this diet plan has plenty of carbs. When you cut down fats with carbs, you almost restrict yourself from all kinds of satisfying foods. Which leads to starving and feeling stressed all the time, not being able to carry out daily life activities. So to lose weight you just need to limit you calorie intake or adopt a calorie deficit diet (3).
  • How to keep weight off? Increase fruits and vegetables in your diet. You will end up eating less calories which is key ingredient of weight loss and maintenance (4),

You are allowed to drink green tea (above).
You are allowed to drink green tea (above).

Allowed Beverages

In addition to water, you're allowed to drink:

  • Green tea: Contains polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidents (5,6)
  • Coffee with or without milk
  • Lemonade (recipe on the dedicated page for day three of this diet)

Do You Need to Lose Weight?

This question is a personal one and ultimately the answer depends upon your health and how you feel. Some things to consider are:

  • Has you doctor recommended that you lose a few pounds for cardiovascular health?
  • Do you have high blood pressure?
  • Are you experiencing any joint pain as a result of carrying excess weight?
  • Are you light-framed or heavy-framed and what is your height?
  • What is your body-mass index (BMI)?

How to Calculate Your Body Mass Index (BMI)

Your BMI is a value derived from your body weight and height. It is a way of quantifying the amount of tissue mass (muscle, fat, and bone) in your body.

  • To calculate your BMI, you will need to know your height (in meters or inches) and your weight (in kilograms or pounds). You will divide your weight by your height.
  • Metric: BMI = Weight (Kg)/Height (m)2
  • American: BMI = Weight (lb)/Height (inches)2 x 703

Results:

  • 18.5 or under: Underweight
  • 18.5-24.9: Normal
  • 25-29.9: Overweight
  • 30 or above: Obese

Day one of this seven day plan features all types of fruit except bananas.

      Net 6 days ago

      On day 6 and as I don't know if or how much I have lost, I do feel a bit different. One thing that has surprised me is I normally need a lot of protein, but for some reason, I haven't been crashing like I normally would on lower protein diets. Not sure if the honey lemon drink in the morning is a huge part of that, but so far, I am impressed. Looking forward to the weigh in to see what the results are. I wanted to do this for three weeks straight, but seeing that maybe that isn't a good idea??? Any one have more info on this idea and what should I do on the off weeks to keep the momentum going? I am now incorporating exercise in the mix.

      Best way to keep weight off is to first of all make it a way of life mentally. Just as you make a pot of coffee each morning so prepare your food and beverages for your day. Plenty of water, hot broth makes you also feel full. Be creative in your veggie and fruit intake boil, raw, blend. Always have a snack ready for moments of extreme hunger. I have 4 children under 7 and i take care of 3 adults as well so nights are long and tiring but myself and others can see a difference even in my skin from this pattern of eating. Like the saying goes most of what we need, often comes to us but most of what we truly want we must go out and Get! Once you begin this way of life and practice it as a culture you feel so good that to look back in your past just seems depressing. We want good things for us and in us! Be passionate about it!

      @Qamarsalman weight gain after sleeve gastrectomy is not uncommon. Sudden diet changes after sleeve can cause gas or indigestion. I would recommend daily 30 to 60 min early morning walk with a balanced calorie deficit diet. Walk will help you regulate blood sugar and help with food carving.

I plan on doing it for another week I just have 2 questions, if you could please answer me I will truly appreciate it

      1. A glass of water, is it a 8oz cup?

      2. Can I add black beans to the soup?

      I'm on day one. Doesn't seem so bad. My biggest question/concern is that there is no protein in this diet. I want to drop weight fast but don't want my muscles to deplete, espescially if I'm working out moderately every day. I was considering eating a can of tuna (which is less than 100 calories and has 20 grams of protein) post workout. Would this be detrimental to the diet?

      I'm on day 4. It's been pretty easy so far, but I was already eating mostly healthy so it wasn't a big change for me. The salad and soup I've made were huge, way bigger than I needed in one day. I ate the rest of day 2 salad on day 3 along with the fruit salad. For the soup you need way more than 23 ounces of water for the broth to make it soupy. It also made a lot more than 3 servings. I added spices to it to give it flavor. The only cheat I've done is eat eggs in the mornings. I'm not sure why there's no protein in this diet. I did weigh myself this morning and I've lost 2.5 pounds so far. My only question is how many ounces are you considering one glass of water to be? A regular 8oz cup?

      Round 2 - Day 5 - weighed in 151lbs

      Day 1 - Weigh in 156lbs

      Day 2 - Weigh in 153.5lbs (Ttl lost: 2.5lbs)

      Day 3 - Weigh in 153lbs (Ttl lost: 3.0lbs)

      Eating tomatoes are a little difficult for me without any dressing. I have seasoned them with some salt and added some chopped cilantro.

      I am back for Round 2. I completed Round 1 on Feb 5th.

      My weight was 158lbs. It has been 6 weeks. It is easy to maintain the weight if you workout and continue to eat fruits and vegetables with lean cuts of protein. I even ate dessert on on occasion.

      I know that Edward prefers for us not to weigh in everyday - but I find that it is easier for me to keep on track. The scale is a form of accountability.

      Round 2

      Day 1 - Weigh in 156lbs

      Day 2 - Weigh in 153.5lbs (Ttl loss: 2.5lbs)

      Note: I prefer vegetable day to fruit day. Today is a great day.

      We shall see what tomorrow brings. This plan really works for me and it is really doable! Happy losing everyone!

      March 14th - weighed in at 154.8

      Not quite 10 pounds lost, but feel GREAT and learned some new healthy eating habits, and feel more hydrated.

      My target weight is 153, so close to that now :-)

      Sorry to ask as I see there are a lot of comments about tea. I am just not clear if I can drink it or not. I never drink water, I always drink cold decaffeinated tea with an artificial sweetener and sometimes decaffeinated Diet Coke. I know I can't drink the Diet Coke, but can I drink iced decaffeinated tea with artificial sweetener on all 7 days? Does it matter what kind of artificial sweetener? I am drinking the water, but I would assume the tea would be in addition to the water and would not count toward the water goal?

      @CharlJvv i would have said yes to the actual Garcinia but i do not recommend any extracts or concentrates. If you want to try herbal remedies go for the real original product. Natural product is well balanced by nature but the extracts and the pills do not contain healthy balanced formula.

      Thank you Haris for sharing the diet plan. Although I didn't lose 10lbs, I am glad that I am lighter by 8.5lbs in 7 days. My goal was to run faster and improve on my 5km runs.

      This plan is so good for those needing a resetting point in our daily diets. It has made me rethink what my body really needs.

      Thanks again Haris! Good luck to everyone on the plan!!

      - It wasn't a bad on Day 6 - I fare better when salad is on the menu. I can't say that I like the soup.

      - I haven't ran because of the snowfall. I think this could be why my losses aren't that big. Although, I am more than happy with how I am feeling. 8 lb loss is not too shabby for 6 days.

      Happy Losing ! Hang in there.... it gets better.

      - 1 lb loss isn't too bad, considering I am feeling a little so bloated.

      Day 5 - 160.5 (+.05 / ttl: 6lbs)

      - Alright, I gained 0.5lbs but I am not concerned by it. It is "that time of month".

      - I couldn't eat all 8 banana quota, I managed 6.

      - I was also feeling really queasy in the evening of Day 4. I don't have such symptoms each "time of month". I am not sure if it was the combination of banana and milk that didn't sit right with my tummy.

      Will see how Day 5 fares.

      Happy Losing !

      I started last monday and i went for my friends birthday on day three and i resisted the temptation of food and cake. I havent checked my weight yet but i am used to it now. I am drinking three liters of water per day and going to the gym every day. I hope this works for me cos i put all my effort into it. Cooking for my kids is a challenge but i am on day four. I am 173 tall and 82 kg. I will update you on sunday which is my 7th day. I am wondering what happens after this diet?

      Day 3 - 162 (-1.5lbs / ttl: 4.5lbs)

      Day 4 - 160 (-2lbs / ttl: 6.5lbs)

      - I made the soup early this morning. It was not as blend as I anticipated. I did use 1 tbsp of vegetable oil to saute the onions and then added water and the veggies.

      - 8 Bananas and 24 0z Milk today seems like quite the treat. (trying to psych myself up here! :) )

      - The water intake still seems like ancient Chinese water torture to me, but I am doing it. I think water really helps take away the hunger pangs and urges to cheat.

      - I did this diet to lose 10 lbs so that I can decrease my time on a 5K run. I am not running faster but I do feel the energy to run for a longer period of time.

      Splendid day you All!

      Edward Harris MSc 3 months ago from Earth

      @Nooni its not harmful for you but babies have sensitive metabolism and what you eat may effect your baby. So sudden diet changes are not recommended. Follow a balanced diet with simple home cooked meals. Don't over eat, i explain it like your belly has 3 portions and your suppose to fill only one third with food. Drink water before meal and not after it will help you eat less. A 30 to 40 min light workout routine will keep you energy level up.

      I've been following it as closely as you have it laid out as possible! So far I FEEL the fat flushing off, I feel less bloated, less miserable. After months of wine and bad diet. I'm on Banana day today, I just had two bowls of the vegetable soup, I have 2 bananas and a cup of milk left to drink. I think the first 2 days were the hardest for me because I liked my wine every other night and junk food would usually follow! Nasty cycle! I feel like this controlled diet helped me cut a couple of nasty habits and I will work on sticking to it! Keeping a journal helped me get through the first 3 days! So much temptation while having to cook food you can't eat for the family and chase after kids all day. I added a few nuts and avocado here and there just to keep up with the activity I do. I will be following other meal plans/ideas on this website! Thank you :)

      @yasmeen breastfeeding mom should never try any sort of extreme diet changes. Here is what i recommend for you, a balanced diet with more fats and proteins and less carbohydrates max two meals a day. It will help you lose weight without the side effects of diet change. Stay away from wheat, rice and sugars and exercise to stay in shape.

      Day 1 of this diet. I'm having a hard time finishing the apples and oranges. Unfortunately the only store near me did not have pomegranates or blood oranges. I substituted them for pears. Honestly that was the only other fruit I could find that was apple-like. I'm trying to make it to the "At lease 4 apples, 4 oranges and 2 pomegranates (pears)", but I do not enjoy fruit very much at all, let alone more than one a day (or week, for me). Hopefully it gets easier tomorrow.

      @Natalie bad thing about having shakes is that you consume good amount of nutrition in a very short period of time. So people having shakes or smoothies end up eating more due to the lack of fullness effect that is created by slow chewing of food.

      Day 3 and I'm down 4 pounds! I'm not surprised with all the clean eating I've been doing. I slept the best I have in weeks last night and today I am full of energy. If I lose 6 pounds I will be my pre pregnancy weight of 128! My 4th daughter is now 2 1/2 and these last 10lbs have been difficult to take off!

      Day 2 was hard, I didn't feel like the veggies filled me up as much as the fruit, and I went to bed a little hungry,

      but it's all good, I'm going to finish this week out strong! Sunday is my husbands work luncheon and there will be tons of food, but I'm just going to pack my lunch and take it with me, so that I'm not tempted. Mind over matter is key! Off for my 3 mile run!

I a healthy eater most of my life so it's not that hard for me. My only problem is I don't know how to moderalty exercise. I try to do a brisk walk but it turns into a 3 mile sprint interval session, which makes me feel completely exhausted by the end of it. Could I eat some kind of other good carb or protein to compensate for the energy loss?

      I completed the 7 days and lost 7 lbs. considering I caught a cold at the beginning and did not exercise at all plus I was only 168 lbs when I started so percentage wise I thought that was pretty good. Usually I calorie count and it would take 7 weeks to lose 7 lbs. It was not bad until the last 2 days.

      I did cheat a little. I had 2 vegan meal shakes for breakfast on the veggie days And had hummus or guacamole with celery as a snack while watching football.

      Also at night I sipped fat free low sodium chicken broth wen I was tired of tea. It's more satisfying.I also made variation of soup. Used fat free low sodium broth as a base and different seasonings. No lemon.

      Since I lift weights I am going to cycle this diet 4 weeks off 1 week on until I hit my target bmi so I don't lose too much muscle mass.

      Overall thumbs up.

      I have already replied to your comment. You should lose weight gradually. Two to Three kg each month max. Start with early morning walk routine with diet change. More fruits and vegetables and less bread. Manage stress it's a big factor towards health issues.

      @parvez elahi.. Yes you can do this diet. Don't starve yourself eat every 3-4 hour small meals. Use apple cider vinegar with salads. Try to get sugarcane vinegar made locally. Use 10-20 ml daily. Avoid stressful situations. Drink plenty of water, make sure your water supply is good for consumption and low in natural occuring salts and minerals.

I'm hoping that the both of us get through all 7 days and I will come back and make notes as to where we are at and how many pounds we lost.

      Hello,

      I did the seven day work out provided here on calorie bee, along with my own workouts until I got my weight to a weight I am comfortable at. However, I need a diet plan to reduce my body fat (yes six pack goals) in order to get more cut. Do you have any plans that wont take too long? if not, do you recommend any diet plans to get ripped? I thought I would keep redoing this diet plan until I get ripped because the calorie intake is low enough to reduce body fat with working out, what d you think?

      @Pri i would recommend a very well balanced diet and exercise for all breastfeeding moms. Stop thinking about losing weight, think about staying active through a proper diet and workout. Eventually you'll lose weight and get in shape. Going for crash diet while breastfeeding is not recommended. Mother's diet has direct effect on baby's health so any sudden diet change will effect baby too. So i recommend starting a balanced healthy diet. Vegetables, Meat (fish and lamb), Fruits, Beans and Milk.

      Small meals: Fill only 2/3 part of belly (food plus water) 1/3 should remain empty after every meal.

      On Day 3 now... I agree with others on Day-2 salad size... I got through half of it! and I'm 6'2, 235!

      I'm down almost 5lbs already... I work out at the gym everyday, and definitely notice the no-energy/dizziness. I'm waking up quite a bit through the night.

      My family eats a lot of meat, and it's very difficult as there's akways a smell in the house...

      My question is, when I come off this diet, what is a recommended plan that would include more foods, like meat? There is no way this plan is sustainable for me over-time, especially with the engery level, and the lack of protein in my diet. As an athlete I need to be maintaining muscle.

Just to keep things simple i have added a recipe and some specifics but to honest you can have them all as long as you make a balanced meal. For example if you like broccoli you can not go only broccoli meal. Its must be a mix of wide variety of fruits or vegetables.

      @Msindependent

      yes you can eat veggies in raw from or in salads.

      If you are taking medication for thyroid issue then you can follow this diet in a normal way. No need to change anything, you can have small multiple meals.

      Problem with adding proteins is that they come with a fat package. A good protein source also has a good amount of fat. This is a 7 day diet plan and goal here was to achieve a weight loss without workout. I would recommend adding Yogurt, Soy, Beans and Eggs to diet.

      2. I have hypothyroid which is regulated by medication. You stated "if you have a hypothyroid, you are only allowed two meals a day..." Does that mean I skip lunch completely and then not have rice on days with rice?

      3. Do you by any chance have a detailed plan for that where it includes amounts of protein to add to dinner?

      4. Because my hypothyroidism regulated by taking my medication, do I need to follow the altered menu?

      Thank you so very much, in advance! Your work is so helpful and much appreciated. I appreciate and look forward to your reply.

      I make my own cranberry juice and I add a bit of honey , but not much into it. Can I drink a glass a day for the full 7 days, along with whatever each day calls for? Will it affect the diet? I add 10 cups of fresh cranberries, 10 cups of water in a boiling pot, when softened I pass through a sieve and then I add about 1/2 cup of honey to this mixture.

      First of all, many thanks to Bilaras for providing all of this information and support for FREE. Secondly, as a 40 year vegetarian this diet is not hard for me to follow. Even went vegan a month ago. I need to lose 50 pounds. HOWEVER, I am on Day 6: I have lost 2 pounds. I am frustrated and I understand that the solution is to just stick with it. Nonetheless, the way I even found this plan was by Googling: "Lose 10 pounds in one week." I feel like I've blindly followed in vain. I would like to learn the WHYS of the different choices on each day. Many thanks and good luck to all. I believe it is always a good choice to eat more fruits and vegetable.

      This diet works

      i added proteins like nuts and fish and chiken to mine but still lose the 10lbs

      however i did a lot of walking to compensate the cheating

      if you are unable to follow it strictly just make sure you stay away from Carbs as much a possible , drink lots of water and lemon and please exercise it will help you keep pff the weight

      but ladies stick to the diet and you will see the result i went from a size 10 to a 7/8

My weight was static and did not reduce after june despite me increasing my exercise. Recently I tried this 7 day diet and lost 2kg in 2 days!!!! I did not complete the 7day diet. I went back to my 1200 calories diet on the 3rd day and have been able to maintain the weight. So this diet really works and am planning to do it again soon. will let u guys know the outcome ;)

      @healthygirl1020 Diet changes can be stressful but you have to set your priorities. Losing weight is more important than losing glow. Food makes us happy more calories more satisfaction. Eating food with less punch/calories is always stressful but its healthy in long term.

I don't see any protein, just wondering if that's ok. Also, when you say fresh fruit juice do you mean I squeeze fruit or can you buy fruit juice? And is it any rice or should it be brown? And do you eat as much rice as you want on those days? Thank you.

      So I am on day 3, second round to this diet. I have to admit I thought doing it again would be easier but its not, its actually a bit harder for. yesterday on veggie day I just couldn't eat the raw veggies anymore, it was so distasteful I ended up making a big bowl of just green leafs , tomatoes and about 3 oz of fish in pasta source. now that was satisfying. I will try not to cheat again. the first time I did this diet I lost 12 pounds. I took a week break, ate well for about 3 days until they had free pizza day at work. no will power or what so ever, I went in on it..hehe. in short, I have gain 3 pounds since. that really scared me, which is why im back on this diet. I will update when I weight in next week. I forgot to mention, I signed up for Weight Watchers and most of the veggies and fruits are counted as zero so it still worked for me on the day I cheated

      I did this in order to end out my biggest loser challenge at work and it worked well. I lost 9.2 lbs in a week and came out the winner for my competition. This was challenging in some aspects and I did not follow it to a T. I skipped the soups all together ( something came up and I wasn’t able to go get the supplies nor make it) so I continued just eating fruits and veggies. I followed pretty closely for the first 3 days. And every day after I just continue eating fruits and veggies. I drank almond milk. I only ate 1 banana on the banana day, and I didn’t do the quantity of tomatoes. I think people can tweek this to their liking and still come out successful. I had a few ‘’cheats’’ here and there but nothing major. Surprisingly when I did cheat…the foods were not that appealing and I was left unsatisfied. I feel as if this has changed the liking of my taste buds! Im pretty much going to continue this as a lifestyle change but with no specific set of directions. I’m just going to make my diet compose of MAINLY fruits veggies and water…with the occasionally chicken,and seafood (until and if I can ever) stop eating it. Thanks A lot for all the info listed here! It was a success!
