    The 7-Day Diet Plan


    Also known as the fad diet, the seven day diet plan emphasizes on the concept of eating a single nutrient group each day. People who have followed this diet plan have reported significant weight loss in just one week.

    Day 1: This is the fruit day. You can eat any fruit of your choice, except bananas, all day. Fruit juices are also acceptable as long as you don’t consume anything else.

    Day 2: Tuesday is reserved for vegetables and their juices. Eat raw or cooked, green leafy vegetables. You can have baked potatoes, spinach soup, anything you fancy.

    Day 3: This day is a combination of the first two. You can eat as many fruits as you want (except bananas) and all the vegetables you want (except potatoes).

    Day 4: Thursday is reserved for bananas and milk. Survive the day on 8 bananas and 4 glasses of skimmed milk, which make around 1200 calories.

    Day 5: Friday is for beef and tomatoes. Take around ten to twenty ounces of beef along with around 6 tomatoes. If you want to avoid beef, you can substitute it with skinless chicken and fish.

    Day 6: Repeat the diet from Friday on Saturday too, with the exception of tomatoes. Replace tomatoes with any green vegetable.

    Day 7: Sunday is all about brown rice, vegetables and fruit juices.

    Note: Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day of this diet. Don’t over exert yourself or work out too much while on the 7-day diet. Your intake only meets the basic energy requirements of your body.
