The Fat-Burning Soup Diet

Several people have asked me to share this, so here it is as Tim's aunt shared it with me - with my personal notes.

Many doctors are prescribing this diet to their overweight patients and encouraging them to also exercise. However, before staring any diet or exercise program, you should consult with your own doctor.

Basic Fat Burning Soup

6 large green onions, 2 green peppers,
1 or 2 cans (28oz.) whole tomatoes, 1 bunch of celery, 1 large cabbage, 2 pks. of Lipton Soup Secrets
(Don't worry if you can only find the Lipton Chicken Soup Secrets with noodles. I used that and it was okay. The soup worked anyway. You can also just use boullion)

Season with salt, pepper, curry, parsley: if desired, bouillon or hot sauce.
Cut vegetables into small pieces and cover with water. Boil for ten minutes: turn down to simmer until vegetables are tender.
This soup can be eaten anytime you are hungry. Eat as much as you want, whenever you want. This soup will not add calories. The more you eat, the more you will lose. If eaten for indefinite periods, you will suffer malnutrition.

Day 1: All fruits, except bananas. Eat only fruits and soup. For drinks, use unsweetened teas, cranberry juice, and water.

Day 2: All vegetables. Eat until you are stuffed with all the fresh raw or canned vegetables. Try to eat green leafy vegetables and stay away from dry beans, peas or corn. Eat along with the soup. At dinner time on this day, reward yourself with a big baked potato and butter substitute. (I cook the potato in the microwave along with carrots and onions, which are permissible. I flavor the meal with chicken bullion. It is delicious. Especially since, by this time, one is ravenous.)

Day 3: Eat all the soup, fruits, and vegetables you want. Do not have a baked potato. If you have eaten for three days as above, and have not cheated, you will find you have lost 5-7 pounds.

Day 4: Bananas and skim milk. Eat as many as three bananas and drink as many glasses of water as you can on this day along with the soup. (This was the hardest day for me, but I was feeling fine, physically)

Day 5: (Hallelujah!) Beef and tomatoes. You may have 10-20 ounces of beef and a can of tomatoes or as many as six fresh tomatoes on this day. Try to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water this day to wash away the uric acid in your body. Eat the soup at least once on this day. (That will be hard, because you are really sick of the soup by this time. )

Day 6: Beef and veggies. Eat to your heart’s content of the beef and vegetables on this day. You can even have two or three steaks if you like with the green leafy vegetables, but no baked potato. Be sure to eat the soup at least once today. (They have to tell you to do this, because otherwise, you wouldn’t touch the stuff.)

Day 7: Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juice, and vegetables. Again, stuff yourself. Be sure to have the soup at least once today. (Blah)

thanks for your input. In general, our bodies need a certain amount of protein, complex carbs and fats everyday. Unfortunately, our foods cannot provide us with all the essentials because of the commercialazation and overprocessing. It is important to supplement. It is also important to get plenty of good fats everyday. Most of us do not obtain enought of these fats, which if very critical to facilitate the many functions of our bodies.
