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 tasty. 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 the diet work? High trans fat diets cause 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 restrict yourself from almost al satisfying foods, which leads to starving, feeling stressed all the time, and 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.
  • How do I keep weight off? Increase fruits and vegetables in your diet. You will end up eating less calories which is key strategy for weight loss and maintenance.

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.

      I'm in my third week now and come down a whole dress size. I haven't weighed myself though...but I have lost about 14lbs (1 stone) so far for sure as I know a certain pair of trousers only fit me at a certain weight. I am sure I could have lost more with exercise but didn't do any. I am just happy the weight started shifting after a year of 'thinking about it'. I love this diet.

      Started yesterday and feel that I have lost weight - about 2lbs over 2 days I would say. Hopefully another gone by tomorrow. Stuck to day 1 - fruits and day 2 veggies/salad today with 12 glasses of water - but my mum added Quorn pieces to my boiled vegetables this evening. She assumed this was 'veg'...I looked it up and it is low cal, made from a fungus of some sort but does contain egg white. Was this a massive no-no?? Ugh.

      Once you get to week 3 i would begin to incorporate versatility of foods. Yes to the beetroot and mushrooms, potatoes of course in moderation. The idea of the diet is to yes shed lbs but

      most importantly to create healthy living through healthy eating. You will become accustomed to the eating patterns and will develope a taste for food that is clean and have a less desire for food that does nothing ood for your body. I do believe you should take a day off to enjoy a treat it gives you insentive to keep going with proper eating. Yes exercise too! Energy, great digestive system, radiant skin and a great feeling and looking body what's not to motivate you about that ?!

      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.

      Joleen Castillo 3 months ago

      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 am almost on my 5 th day I lost 5 pound already my pants fits fantastic and I've also cheated little bit ( 3 glass of wine in a week , little bit of sushi and 2 patron shots )

      Are you supposed to eat regular meals too? Or just what it says in the diet plan? So on the first day I'm only supposed to eat fruits and drink water? No other foods?

      Hi Harris first of all I want to say thanks for this amazing diet, I'm on my 5th day and have lost 6 lbs already, I love it because it's easy to follow and I'm never starving myself like with other diets I had tried before plus I feel full of energy :) . 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?

      Thanks

      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?
