its a 7 day eating plan thats supposed to allow you loose UP TO 17 pounds in 7 days they use it for heart patients that need to loose weight prior to surgery in hospitals.

Its a soup that consists of 2 cans of stewed tomatoes
3 plus large green onions
1 large can of fat free beef broth
a pkg of lipton soup mix chicken noodle
1 bunch of celery
2 cans green beans
2lbs carrots
2 green peppers
you eat the soup WHENEVER YOUR HUNGRY throughout the 7 days according to the source the more you eat the more you loose as the soup burns more calories than it puts in you

You can only drink unsweetened juices skim milk and tea and crap but i only drink WATER anyway

Day 1-you are to eat any fruit except bannanas (cantalopes and melons are recommended for low calories) and you only eat the soup and fruits all day.

Day 2- All vegetables eat untill your stuffed with fresh raw cooked or canned veggies try to eat green leafy veggies and stay away from dry beans and starchy veggies. eat veggies along with the soup and at dinner time eat ONE baked potato (NO FRUIT TODAY)

day 3- eat all the soup fruits and veggies you want NO POTATO if you have eaten as above for three days and not cheated you should find that you have lost 5-7 pounds.

Day 4- bannas and skim milk, eat at least 3 bannanas and drink as much skim milk as you can along with the soup. The bannanas are high in calories and carbohydrates and your body will need the potassium on this particular day and the protein and calcium will help lessen the craving for sweets( not a problem)

Day 5- beef and tomatoes you may have 10 to 20 ounces of beef and a can of tomatoes or as many as 6 tomatoes on this day eat the soup at least ONCE today

Day 6- beef and veggies, eat to your hearts content of the beef and veggies today you can even have 2-3 steaks if you like WITH green leafy veggies but NO POTATO be sure to eat the soup at least once today

day 7- brown rice unsweetened juices and veggies again, be sure to stuff yourself and eat the soup you can add cooked veggies to your rice if you wish.

By the end of the seventh day according to this diet if you have not cheated you should have lost 10 to 17 pounds if you have lost more than 17 pounds stay off the diet for two days before resuming again.
