View Full Version : crash diet.. lose 17lbs in a week!???
has anyone heard of the diet that you can lose up to 17lbs (nearly 8 kilos) and a minimum of 10 lbs,, in a week with the 7 day eating plan and the soup. (without any excercise!)
i heard of a cabbage soup diet.. its not that, but its similar. its a vegetable soup and you follow a very strict eating plan. pretty simple.. (hehe says me, who couldnt do it lol)
i have attempted this a couple of times. i failed due to the soup, i hated it! but my friend did it for a few days (thats all she could last) but she managed to lose heaps of weight on it.
anyways, i bought a cd rom from Harvey norman the other day , felt ripped because it was the same diet i already tried before. ANYWAYS.... i thought since i bought the full version i might as well give it another try.. not yet but later on.
Has anyone heard of this diet or have tried it? (when i got a copy on paper from friend long time ago, it was called 'Sacred Heart diet? or something similar) if so did it work for you and how much did u lose?
Also, if your interested in the diet , let me know and i will give it to you!
Never heard of it Dannii, but it sounds dodgy. Those kinds of diets usually just result in fluid loss don't they? So you just put it all back on again straight away.
Having said that, in my younger days I did the Scarsdale medical diet which was a 2 week plan (very strict) and I lost about 7kg in 2 weeks and kept it off for 2 years! Basically high protein, very little bread and VERY low calorie!
Chelle.. you dont need to lose weight!! :D
Cosmic.. your probably right! but when i done it.. i just needed that start to weight loss to get me going so i could see instant results and keep my motivation.
Actually there was a thing on it on A Currant Affair last year it was called The Kickstart Diet
i just reminded myself when i was saying to you that i needed a 'kickstart'! :p
Anyways it is pretty much the same thing to that. maybe someone tried it?
The only problem with such drastic weightloss is the boomerang when you slightly slip off the eating plan.. all that weight come back on and then some :eek:
yes prolly true.. but like i said.. just use it for a good "kickstart" i dont think your meant to stay on it.. just 7 days.
these diets arent for everyone.. but i like scams lol i'll try any good fad diet and then whinge when i doesnt work :p
there are many of these soup variation diets going around - basically they are designed for quick weight loss for patients who are a bit on the larger side and are about to have heart surgery.
It isn't really designed for long term effects unless you keep at it but then your body starts to go a little crazy.........
One word for you...
DON'T DO IT!!
(well, that was three words:rolleyes: )
OK, I cant help it...more than one word. (This is about to turn into a rant.....)
These diets are B A D bad for your body and bad for your mind! They play into the "instant gratification" mindset that is so typical in our modern society. We generally jump at anything that looks like it is a quick fix or will give maximm results with the least amount of work.
8 kilos is waaaay too much weight to lose in a month, let alone a week. There is No way that it can be 8 kilos of fat...it will be mostly water and even some muscle (which is definately not what you want!) We WANT muscle and we WANT water!
To promote something like this is irresponsible on behalf of the so called doctors who Ok'd it. Something that brags about working without needing to exercise is just crrrraaazy:rolleyes: Exercise is good for you! We should be encouraged to exercise.
If you really think about it, how many FAD diets have you seen advertised over the last few years?? Millions! You know why? Becasue they havent found one that works yet! People need to jump from one fad diet to another because they dont work past the first week and they are impossible to keep up for any length of time...
Quick result diets such as these really suck people in because of our "want it all now" society. We tend to want as much as we can for as little work as possible, we have become so lazy and the "health and diet" industry know it! They know we'll try anything:rolleyes:
OK, rant over.....I'm going to bed. BTW this rant was not aimed at you at all Dannii just the way health is going these days...My advice, move more, eat less and drink heaps of water. Laugh, play and be happy with yourself and eat to survive!
Whats that saying? Eat to live dont live to eat!!
This soup diet you may be talking about may be the one a cardiac doctor came up with for patients who needed to have surgery & lose weight quickly & yes it did the rounds a few years ago as a dream diet but the thing with it was that was only to be used for the first 2wks in conjunction with a stict eating plan which was then continued for X amount of weeks again though he came up with this for a reason & it wasnt just to lose weight quick for no reason. He also made it so it was a complete overhaul of how you ate etc so it wasnt just a diet but a lifestyle change so it was to include exercise etc.
So if you can get your hands on the correct one maybe its an idea as long as your willing to make a complete change as nothing is a miracle when it comes to quick weightloss unless your willing to change you habits etc.
Be careful though as im sure there are now so many copy cat diets like it that its just not worth it.
Ffrenchstar - you go girl:p :D
I used to be a fad dieter (okay - 10-20 years ago when I was bulimic), but one day I found the amazing thing that if I excercised I could basically eat what I wanted. Gotta love what excercise does to your metabolism (and the fact that when you have more muscle than fat you burn even more).
I'm always sceptical about diets promising more than a kilo a week loss - used to try them all then lost 15 kilos while not on a diet. I was really keen to lose the 15 kilos I put on with DS as well, but found that I wasn't able to stick to a diet due to bf'ing and the fact that I was able to eat sundaes etc again, however, when we were reduced to one car while we got the funds for a new engine for the other one - the kilos fell off in 8weeks while I was forced to push the pram everywhere. I only hope I can get my pram converted to hold DS as a toddler to lose the weight again this time when No 2 comes along.
Danni - I have also known a fair few people who have tried variations of the soup diet, and for most they've had short term gains but the weight came back on.
I did something similar about 4 years ago and it did work I lost a good 10kg in 4 weeks. But a year later it was right back on again :(
Now I still need to lose baby fat from O's pregnancy so I would try it again in a heart beat if I didnt have to run around after an active toddler (as when your on such a diet you really have no energy.
Do it if you want to kick start your weight loss and get motivated but you really cant maintain such a strict diet.
That said Im having pizza for dinner tonight :eek: hehehehe
