7 Day Delicious Detox Diet

Credit for this recipe is usually given to Sacred Heart hospital in Spokane, Washington where it is said to be safely used to help patients detox and lose weight before a surgery. If followed correctly, it will clean out your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well­-being. After only seven days of this process, many will begin to feel lighter by at least 10 pounds and by as much as 17 pounds, and experience an abundance of energy.

Delicious Detox Soup

1 large can  of stewed  tomatoes
3 large green onions chopped
3 garlic cloves pressed
2 quarts fat-free chicken or beef broth
1h head of cabbage chopped
1 bunch of celery chopped
2 lbs carrots peeled and  chopped
2 red bell peppers chopped
3 Bouillon cubes or to taste
1h tsp Poultry  seasoning
1 tsp Spike seasoning

Heat  the broth  and  add  chopped and  peeled carrots in a large sauce pan.  In a separate pan,  sauté the chopped celery, onions, garlic and  peppers until tender crisp in 1 tsp  olive oil, then add  seasonings.  After adding and  mixing the seasonings, pour  this  in with the carrot mixture. Add the cabbage and  simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Let cool, then refrigerate and  reheat on the stovetop as you are ready to eat it. This soup can  be eaten anytime you are  hungry during the week. Eat as much as you want, whenever you  want.

DAY ONE: Eat any fruit  except  bananas. Cantaloupes and  watermelon are lower in calories than most  other  fruits. Eat only soup and  fruit  today.

DAY TWO: Eat vegetables. Eat until you are stuffed with fresh raw, cooked  or canned veggies. Try to eat green  leafy veggies and  stay  away from dry beans, peas or corn.  Eat veggies along  with the soup. At dinnertime reward yourself  with a big baked  
potato and  butter. Don't eat fruits today.

DAY THREE: Eat all the soup, fruit  and  veggies you want.  Do not have a baked potato. If you have eaten as described above for three days and not cheated, you should find that you have lost a few pounds.

DAY FOUR: Eat at least 3 bananas and  drink all the  skim  milk you can  today, along  with eating the soup. Bananas are  high in calories and  carbohydrates, as is the skim  milk, but  on this particular day your  body will need  the potassium, carbohydrates, proteins and  calcium to lessen the craving  for sweets.

DAY FIVE: You may have  10-20 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 SIX: Eat to your  heart's content of beef and veggies today. You can  even have 2-3 steaks if you like with green leafy veggies but no baked potato. Be sure to eat the  soup at least once today.

DAY SEVEN: Eat brown rice and veggies and drink unsweetened fruit juice.  Eat as much soup as you can today. You can add cooked veggies to the rice if you wish. By the end  of the seventh day many have lost 10-17 pounds. If you have lost more than 17 pounds, stay off the diet for 2 days before resuming again. 

Due to the variety of digestive systems in individuals, this  diet will affect everyone differently. After day three you will have more energy than when  you began.  After being on the diet for several days,  you will find that your  bowel movements have changed. Eat a cup  of bran or fiber if needed.  You can eat broiled, boiled or baked chicken instead of beef but absolutely no skin on the chicken.

No bread, carbonated drinks (including diet drinks). Remember, absolutely no fried foods.

Drink plenty, at least 6 to 8 glasses of water a day, as well as any combination of the following beverages: black coffee, unsweetened fruit drinks, cranberry juice, skim milk, herbal tea.
