This diet is from the Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital and is used for heart patients who need to loose weight rapidly before surgery.
The seven-day eating plan may be used as often as you like. As a matter of fact, if correctly followed it will clean your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being as never before.
After only days of this process you will begin to feel lighter by at least 10 pounds and have an abundance of energy. Continue this plan as long as you wish and feel the difference.
This diet is a fast, fat-burning diet and the secret is that you will burn more calories than you take in. The diet does not lend itself to drinking any alcohol beverages at any time because of removal of fat building up your system. Go off the diet at least 24 hours before intake of alcohol.
Because everyone's digestive system is different, this diet will affect everyone differently. On day three you will have more energy than when you began, if you don't cheat. After being on the diet for several days you will find that your bowel movements change. Eat a cup of bran fibre. Although you can have black coffee with this diet you may find that you don't need caffeine after the third day.

Day 3 Mix day one and two. East all the soup, vegetable and fruit you want. You cannot have a baked potato today. NOTE: If you have eaten for the three days as above and not cheated, you will find you have lost 7 pounds
Day 4 Bananas and skimmed milk. Eat as many as 8 bananas and drink as many glasses of skimmed milk as you can on this day along with your soup.
