Lose 10 Pounds in a Week: 7 Day Diet Plan

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.

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.

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
  • Coffee with skimmed milk
  • Warm lemonade (recipe described on the page for day three of the 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


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

I also have some protein (2 boiled eggs, 100 - 150 gr of chicken or beef) each day, but I walk 10,000 steps to loose those extra food.

I really hope that day 2 is easier for me.

Bilaras 3 months ago from Earth Author

@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 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.

@Andre my 30 day plan is more balanced, also read my other post on boosting metabolism. Best method is obviously the heavy workout routine with well balanced diet. I encourage the use of multiple protein sources like meat, fist, beans etc.

Andre 5 months ago

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.

I accidentally ate some fruit on the second day: The Veggie Day! Does this matter? Also is there any way you can substitute rice for chicken? And on the third day, tomorrow, I HAVE to eat chicken because I can't waste it, it's not much just one chicken breast, does this matter? Thanks, hopefully this diet works, even though I can't follow it 100%

@Lindsay options are endless when i say fruits and vegetables i mean all of them. 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.

Bilaras 12 months ago from Earth Author


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.

Msindependent 12 months ago

Bilaris, thank you so much for all of the efforts you have put forth in helping people better their health!

I literally read through your article and every comment before asking these questions... 1. It is very difficult for me to make soup at certain times of the day due to my busy schedule... Can I eat the veggies listed in the soup in raw form instead, maybe as a salad?

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.

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.

Zena 15 months ago

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

Hello. I'm excited to try this diet. I have a few questions tho. The first day is says all you want fruit. Is that the same for veggies day? All you can eat or want? And even on the fruit and veggie day is it all you want? The other days are more exact so I'm OK with them. Thank you!

Becca 19 months ago

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

@ Yatta Good Job

Yatta 19 months ago

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!

Becca 20 months ago

I want to say Thank You! I completed my diet couple days ago and unless I lost 2 pounds unknowingly before the diet, I lost a total of 12 pounds weighing in today at home and doubling checking with the gyms scale. Yesterday I made sure I didn't go over 1500 cal. I will be on a 1200 cal for another 3 day then repeat your diet. I know it will take a lot more work to keep it off but it def gave me the motivation I needed to get back to my pregnancy weight. I gained 60 during my pregnancy and was only able to lose 40, for almost a year I didn't lose a pound until this diet. it could be water weight but it still needed to go. Thanks again

This is a great diet plan. I am on day 6 and have lost 5 pounds but my body feels like I have no energy. Why is so? I am following the plan very well.

It will be very helpful if you can provide food to eat during different time of the day:

Breakfast, Lunch, Snack, Dinner/Supper. I had rice yesterday evening as per instructions and I feel that i did not lose any weight because of that. Please guide me how to overcome low metabolism is low (no specific condition) and lose 7 more pounds. Losing weight after 40 is very hard. I want to do this diet for one more week. PLEASE HELP.

Last year my eating was out of control, I was depressed because of health problem. I went to cancer clinic Jan 14/14 for check up, weighted in at 168lbs, I am 5'4" I was over 30lbs over weight. The doc said the extra weight ws not good,my heart is working hard as it is. I had to lose weight. That day I made up my mind to start eating healthy and working out again. I did cardio 6 days a week, went on low carb with 6 meals a day. April 6/14 I weighted in at 145lbs!!! I was feeling awesome. In June I started my binge eating sweets again. Last monday I had my check up at the doc, OMG I weighted in at 159.8lbs. I gained 14lbs in 2months :( I had to do something to stop myself. I found this diet last tuesday and read it carefully. I truly believed I couldn't eat fruit or any kind of carbs and drink milk without gaining weight. But this diet looked good, it wasn't the same food everyday. I started this diet last wednesday August 6th, I did and ate (almost) exactly what it asked of me. The only thing is I can't ever have grapefruit because of the chemotherapy pills I take. I would get very sick. The nurse witnessed my weigh-in yesterday I was just under 150lbs and this morning after I finished my 7th day I weighted in at 148lbs. I LOST 11LBS IN 7 DAYS ON THIS DIET!!!! The fruit and carbs did not cause me weight gain, in fact it helped my digestion and irritable bowel syndrome. I FEEL GREAT. Today I started Shakeolgy and low healthy carb eating. Thank you

@EmillyG from my experience it's best to eat fresh fruits with low sugar content!

@help do this plan for the 7 day period and eat a lot of healthy fresh fruits and veggies so that you can have enough energy to exercise. Take a day of to eat whatever you want. By doing this you confuse your body and speed up you metabolism. When you get to you gaol weight do not return to old eating habits or all the weight will return.

I think I want to follow this diet because it sounds interesting and I feel it will work! but I am a little confused'

Day 1 says that i can eat All kinds of fruits except banana. by this i understand that I can eat all kinds of fruits except banana. I am cool with that

on day one the menu is apples, orange, Pomegranate, water melon. If it says I can eat all kinds of fruit, then it means I can also eat other type of fruit also( except banana)

But I am supposed to eat only what the menu says. ???? is it only the fruits from that day's menu or all kinds of other fruits?

THis is same for the rest of the days. I am ok if I only have to eat what the menu says only. But I get confused when it says that I can eat all kinds of fruits or all kinds of vegetables. What do I do?

Thank you

I know I'm not supposed to weigh at night but I'm tempted to know :) On the morning of day 2 I was happy to find out I lost 6 lbs. (140)! So end of day 2 I weigh 141. Tomorrow I start day 3 glad day 2 is over I I hate veggies lol I'll repost daily so far so good! Thanks for the plan Bilaras!

I just finished the plan yesterday. I stuck to it all the way except on tomato day, since I do not like them. I got v8 juice and only drank one. I continued to follow everything else even on Easter when I had to cook for my family lol, I didn't even do a taste test! I was determined... Lost 8 pounds! Now I am following the 30 day plan listed below :) Happy Health everyone!

@Tahani: I responded to your last message yesterday, but it doesn't look like it posted. I'm wondering Bilaris (author of hub page) would prefer me not giving advice on his page. I can respect that. We'll see if this message posts. If you'd like to talk further please reach me at

Sister c41 2 years ago

@Tahani086 Walking inside vs. outside will provide the same results if you walk at same intensity; however inside it will likely be more difficult to keep speed, etc. But it's still very beneficial to keep your body moving at any rate. As for some specific exercise suggestions for your particular situation; I'd say start w/15min every other day of kickboxing or dance aerobics using videos on youtube. Both are fun and high energy, and burn calories/fat. But considering we want to keep your muscle mass, include protein in low cal/fat diet and add 3 sets of 10 crunches, 10 squats and/or 10 arm curls w/low weight (can food works). Try this to start, every other day if possible. It's really only 20min of activity, and combined w/balanced, low cal/fat diet w/protein you will lose body weight instead of muscle weight. At your low weight you don't need to concern w/lowering # on scale. As far as I know, for you It's about exchanging your fat in for muscle. :-) If you end up feeling you need more details on constructing a long term diet appropriate for your specific needs please let me know and I'll try to work with you via email for more simple/effective communication. It's important you get a good grasp on personal nutrition early in life to avoid neverending search,confusion and possibly health deterioration. Be careful not to over work yourself. If you are not consuming enough you may feel faint. Please be careful and try listening to your body closely. You need a diet plan that fits you uniquely&is liveable. All of the luck to you!

@Sister c41 Unfortunately not I want to be active but i'm home schooled so I don't get out of the house much:/ Also because i'm currently in Egypt my mom doesn't like me going out here so I walk around the house for 30mins a day is that okay? will it have the same effect as walking outside? why kind of exercises do you suggest I do? and thankyou for your reply :)

update: i posted 10 days ago…first 7 days i lost only 5 pounds…no cheating at all…so i'm bummed but i'm on day 3 for a 2nd round and haven't lost anything yet…. :( but will keep going

Sister c41 2 years ago

@Tahani: First, some of your body fat percent may be related to your youthful age "baby fat". It's possible this will reduce as you grow with age. But aside from that factor, are you active? With your low weight and higher body fat percent you may try aerobic exercise which targets fat and eat balanced diet with protein to gain/keep muscle. Reducing cal/fat intake will help lose fat, but at yourvweight you don't want to become lethargic by eating away the fuel burning/energy generating muscle you do have. A 7 day diet like this, followed by balanced low cal/fat diet with adequete protein and aerobic&mild weight training would be your best bet. It's a lifelong journey of struggle and discovery, but I know you and all of us have the ability to find and live the lifestyle concoction that provides us our ideal results. But 1st things 1st. Without practicing this you will never reach ideal weight or body image. Each day please practice loving yourself unconditionally, through and through! I know it may seem cliche or useless, but please try it before knocking it. Just look at your body and say nice things and thoughts that you'd use toward your most loved person on this earth. It can be devilishly hard, but just fake it long enough and suprisingly it becomes truth. I will end here, before I go ranting on the scientific effects and literal, visual changes this love and positive energy has on your body, life and all of existence. All of the best in the universe to you all!
