The true key to this diet is the soup. It is day 7, I just made huge noodle sized pot #3. My husband had two bowls this whole week, I ate the rest. I could only handle 1 tablespoon of chili powder per pot. I adhered most faithfully to the recipe otherwise and to the diet. Lost only 4 pounds. But, that is four pounds gone, from a plateau that I could not seem to budge in 3 months. When my husband asked me this morning if it had been worth it. I thought is over very carefully and said, “Yes!” My diet and exercise controlled diabetes fell right in line, with great glucose tests. I feel especially well! Getting a lot more chores done, doubled my daily walking distance, and there is the 4 # gone. I shall take a day or two off and then get right back on the 7 day soup diet. There was a time or two that I had to almost gag down the last of a bowl of the soup, but it is not a bad soup, just way too much of it right now. I think anyone who wants to lose weight, could give this a try. Thank you for sharing this healthy recipe and temporary method of eating.
Just wanted to add that now I am going through this diet for the 4th time. I have lost nearly 20# and 2 dress sizes. I shall keep at it until I am drop dead gorgeous! With one or two days of rest between. It is a very good way to eat! Must say, that I seem to crave the spicy soup when I took a vacation in Japan, recently. Thanks ever so much for sharing this plan.
May 1, 2009, I have lost 46# with this diet, it is now an on and off part of my life
Both me and my brother tried this two weeks ago. I did it for 6 days and lost 11 lbs. My brother did it for 5 days and I believe he lost 13 lbs. I used fresh roma tomatoes, and I pulsed all the vegetables in my food processor. I would say this is a very thick stew. My brother added alot of extra water, and had his more like a soup. Looking now I actually put a Tablespoon of black pepper in mine instead of the tsp, no wonder it was a little on the “spicy” side, but it was good. I shared this with a co worker also, and we both agreed that it tastes exactly like Campbells vegetable soup. I am going to do this one week out of the month until my surgery in November. I’m making another batch today and this time I will post a picture. Thank you for sharing this recipe and diet.
Really works!! My roommates and I (all females in mid-20s, 5’5″, 120-150 lbs) came across this diet and were a bit skeptical about its ability to help us lose weight but figured at the very least it would be a good cleansing exercise. We followed it as described here and after 7 days, we all feel great and have lost 4.5-5lbs each! The soup is delicious and incredibly filling, and we varied it by adding different spices and sometimes even puree-ing it. The additional daily allowances were more than enough to satisfy our hunger and left us feeling full, yet light. While this diet does requires a lot of advance preparation (chopping all the veggies to feed 3 people on this soup for 7 days made our kitchen feel like a factory!), it was definitely worth it. In addition to the few lbs we shed, it totally changed our outlook on meals and snacking. Whereas before we would depend on breads as the staple of each meal and fill gaps during the day with sweets, we know realize how easy, tasty, and nutritious it can be to eat healthily. I HIGHLY recommend this diet.
