Today is Beef and Tomatoes day. You’re supposed to consume two 10 ounces of beef and 6 whole tomatoes. On day five you must increase your water intake by one quart. This is to cleanse your system of the uric acid you will be producing.
Day Five, Beef and tomatoes. The beef is for iron and proteins, the tomatoes are for digestion and fibre. Lots and lots of water purifies your system. You should notice colourless urine today. Your allowance calls for the equivalent of five “quarter ponders”. Do not feel you have to eat all this beef. You must eat the six tomatoes.
As others may be happy about this day, I on the contrary, do not like beef. I am not a beef eater. I am a fish or chicken person. I also eat brown or red rice and do not take white rice, so to be honest, it is very difficult for me to go through with this day, even if eating a Hamburger patty is okay. I loved that it was combined with the tomatoes though. It made my eating easier.
Guys, I’m giving up. This is the last day that i’ll be following this diet. I do not think it is for me. I want a diet that can be sustainable and that will still give you the complete requirements of your body for each day. As this may work for some, I don’t think I will be willing to sustain this. 🙂 And I already miss my red rice and fish! So those who want to try it, good luck and if you need support, we will be here!
Just to continue for Day 6 and Day 7…
Beef and vegetables. Today you may eat an unlimited amount of beef and vegetables. Eat to your hearts content.
Day Six is similar to day five, Iron and proteins from beef, Vitamins and fibre from vegetables. By now your system is in a total weight loss inclination. There should be a noticeable difference in the way you look today, compared to day one.
Today your food intake will consist of brown rice, fruit juices and all the vegetables you care to consume.
Day Seven finished off the program like a good cigar used to finish off Victorian meals, except much healthier. You have your system under control and it should thank you for the flushing and cleaning you just gave it.
*Additional Comments just as a reminder for all the days
Vegetables as may be taken in the form of a salad if desired. No dressing except malt, white or wine vinegar, squeezed lemon, garlic, herbs. No more than one tea spoon of oil.
You have been given a recipe for the WONDER SOUP which can be eaten in unlimited quantities. This soup is a supplement while you are on the program and it should be a pleasure to eat. Not everyone likes cabbage, green peppers, calory etc. This recipe is not inflexible. You may substitute vegetables according to your taste. You may add any vegetables you like: asparagus, peas, corn, turnips, green beans, cauliflower, etc. Try to stay away from beans (lima, pinto, kidney, etc.), however, because they tend to be high in calories even though they are very good for you.
Beverages you may consume while on the program :
– Water (flavoured with lemon/lime if desired).
– Club Soda is OK.
– Black Coffee. No cream or cream substitute. No sugar or sweetness.
– Black Tea = Herb or Leaf.
– Absolutely nothing else except the fruit juices which are part of day seven. No fruit juices before day seven.
So after finishing day 7, you are supposed to weigh 10-17 lbs. lighter than one week ago. If you desire further weight loss, repeat the program again. You may repeat this program as often as you like, however, it is suggested that you are allowed two glasses of white wine in addition to the instructions on the program. You may substitute champagne for white wine. Under no circumstances are you to drink any other alcoholic beverages with the exception of beer which is allowed. Any liquor (bourbon,vodka, rum) is forbidden. Cream drinks are especially forbidden. If you drink wine, drink only wine that day. If you have beer, drink only beer that day, etc. Alcohol adds empty calories to your diet. However, after the first week it will help your digestion and settle your stomach.
