7 day chemical diet

They say you can lose 6.5kgs (14lbs) in a week ... I'm not so sure, but I am going to give it a crack this week.  I love all of the foods listed her with the exception of Grapefruit, so we'll see how I go.

As I understand it, the basis of this diet is chemical and if I follow the diet to the letter for one week I should lose 6.5kgs (14lbs) on average (and possibly up to 9kgs, or 20lbs at best case scenario).

So what's on the menu?

Day 1 Breakfast 1 slice dry toast and grilled tomatoes
Lunch Fresh fruit (any amount)
Dinner 2 hard boiled eggs, salad, grapefruit

Day 2 Breakfast Grapefruit, 1 boiled egg
Lunch Roast chicken (any amount) & tomatoes
Dinner Grilled steak and salad

Day 3 Breakfast Grapefruit, 1 boiled egg
Lunch 2 boiled eggs and tomatoes
Dinner 2 Grilled lamb chops, celery & cucumber

Day 4 Breakfast 2 slices dry toast, 2 poached eggs
Lunch fresh fruit (any amount)
Dinner 2 hard boiled eggs, salad, grapefruit

Day 5 Breakfast 1 slice dry toast, 2 poached eggs
Lunch 2 poached eggs & tomatoes
Dinner Fresh or tinned fish and salad

Day 6 Breakfast 1 boiled egg, 1 glass grapefruit juice
Lunch Fresh fruit (any amount)
Dinner Roast chicken, cabbage, carrots

Day 7 Breakfast 2 scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes
Lunch 2 Poached eggs& spinach
Dinner Grilled steak & salad

  1. Hi! My name is Holly Butler... I tried a similar diet to this on in 1986 and lost a total of 15 lbs. in a week and a half. I went from a sz 18 down to a sz 13... The thing is, is that when you get off the diet you have to make a life style change in order to actually keep off the weight lost or it will come back on you..., eat healthy food- I'm sure you know the difference... drink lots of water and most important -excercise-. (ie) walking, whatever you like to do most... I've kept off 52 lbs..., but would still like to lose at least 35-40 more to make it down to my weight lose goal.... With this new start -again, maybe I can do it this time also! Good luck to you Wes!

  2. This post is very informative. Thank you. However, I do find that this article misses out on
    some really simple tweaks that will easily accelerate weight loss without lifting a finger.

    I'd like to make a small input (if I may).
    It's a great idea to add some spices to your diet and juices.
    Spices are known to rev up your you can burn more calories.
    More importantly, they also help you in detoxifying your system.
    It helps you in mobilizing the unhealthy toxins around your colon, which (as per research) could be holding as much as 30 pounds in some cases!


    5 must-stock ancient spices for weight loss:

    1. Mustard Seed: Boosts metabolism
    even after up to 25 hrs of consumption.
    2. Black Pepper: Helps in faster digestion
    and nutrient absorption.
    3. Ginger: Hinders cholesterol absorption.
    4. Cinnamon: Helps in better processing
    of carbs.
    5. Cayenne Pepper: Burns fat.
