Cardiac diet soup: weight loss, cleansing and detox diet
Thank Amanda for sharing this soup recipe! After celebrating the lunar new year, I put on couple extra pounds from hot pots, endless dessert and alcohol. The overeating also resulted in water retention and bloating. After followed the recipe for two days (only the first two days, since I didn't need to shed that much weight), water retention and bloating problem were solved and I went back to my normal weight.
1. Unless you are overweight, don't do the entire 7 days! 2-3 days are enough for internal cleansing.
2. Instead of following the direction (trust me, after day 2, you even won't think of this soup...), substitute your dinner to this soup. It also helps detox and weight control.
Here is the recipe and direction. Good luck!
SOUP: In a large pot add
1-2 CANS TOMATOES, CRUSHED OR WHOLE
2 BUNCHES OF LARGE GREEN ONIONS
1 LARGE CAN BEEF BROTH (OR 2 SMALL CANS)
1 PKG. LIPTON VEGETABLE (OR OTHER) SOUP MIX
1 BUNCH OF CELERY
2 CANS GREEN BEANS, DRAINED
2 GREEN PEPPERS
2 LBS OF CARROTS
Season with garlic, salt, pepper, curry, parsley, bouillon, or hot sauce
Cut veggies into medium pieces, cover with water, and boil fast for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to simmer and continue cooking until all veggies are tender.
Soup can be eaten anytime you are hungry. Eat as much as you want, whenever you want. The soup will not add calories; the more you eat, the more you will lose.
For drinks: drink unsweetened juices, tea, and coffee and water
DAY 1:Any fruit, except bananas. Cantaloupes or watermelon are lower in calories than most fruit. Eat only soup and fruit.
Day 2: All veggies. Eat until you are stuffed with fresh, frozen, or canned veggies. Try to eat green veggies, and stay away from dried brans, peas, or corn. Eat veggies along with soup. At dinner reward yourself with a big baked potato and butter. Don’t eat any fruit.
Day 3: Eat all soup, fruit, and raw veggies you want. Do not have a baked potato this day. If you have eaten as above and not cheated, you should find you have lost 5 to 7 lbs.
Day 4: Bananas and skim milk; eat at least 3 bananas and drink as much milk as you can today, along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates as is the milk, but on this particular day your body will need the protein and calcium to lessen the craving for sweets.
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. Eat soup at least once this day.
Day 6: Beef and veggies: eat until your heart is content. You can have 2 to 3 steaks, but no baked potato. Be sure to eat soup at least once this day.
Day 7: Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juice and veggies. Again, be sure to stuff yourself and eat the soup.
By the end of the 7th day, if you have not cheated on this diet, you may find you have lost more than 15 pounds. Stay off the diet for 2 days before starting the diet again.
This 7 day eating plan can be used as often as you need. It will clean your system from impurities and give you a feeling of well being as never before.
This diet is fast, fat burning, and the secret is that you will burn more calories and flush your system of impurities.
This diet does not lend itself to any alcoholic beverages at any time. Because of fat buildup in your system, go off the diet at least 24 hours before any alcohol intake.
Because everyone’s digestive system is different, it will affect everyone differently. After 3 days you will have more energy than when you began. After being on this diet for several days, you will find you bowel movements have changed. Eat 1 cup of bran or fiber. Although you can have black coffee with this diet, you may find that you do not need caffeine.
The basic fat burning soup can be eaten any time you are hungry. Eat as much as you wish. Remember, the more you eat, the more you will lose. You can eat broiled or baked chicken instead of the beef, with absolutely no skin on the chicken. Or if you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for the beef. But you can only substitute one of the beef days.
Any prescribed medication will not hurt you on this diet. Continue the diet plan as long as you wish and feel the difference mentally and physically.
DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT!!! NO BREAD, ALCOHOL, CARBONATED DRINKS, INCLUDING DIET DRINKS AND ABSOLUTELY NO FRIED FOODS.
Drink plenty (at least 6 to 9 glasses of water a day), as well as any combination of the following: black coffee, unsweetened tea, unsweetened fruit drinks, cranberry juice, and skim milk.
This diet is used for overweight heart patients to lose weight rapidly, usually prior to surgery. Good luck and enjoy yourself on this diet.
