Although there are several variations of the diet, the seven-day plan basically follows these guidelines. Day One: Eat all the soup and fruit (except bananas) that you like. Only drink water, unsweetened tea and cranberry juice. Day Two: Eat unlimited amounts of vegetables, excluding dry beans, peas and corn, along with your soup. For dinner, enjoy a big baked potato with butter. No fruit.
Day Three: Eat all the fruit and vegetables you'd like along with your soup. No baked potato. Day Four: Eat up to eight bananas and drink as much skim milk as you'd like. Also, consume your soup. Day Five: Have between 10 and 20 ounces of beef or skinless chicken and up to six tomatoes. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water. Eat your soup at least once. Day Seven: Limit yourself to brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables. Eat your soup at least once.
Because this diet plan is so low in calories, it can be hazardous to your health. And it's certainly not going to win any awards for flavor or variety.
