It is truly a commitment to lose and keep a well-maintained weight. And in reality, losing weight does not have a quick fix. However, certain diets that are designed to jump start your weight loss, so it is possible that you can maintain the weight off effectively over time. The Sacred Heart Diet is one of the jump-start diets that can help you lose weight in a short period of time as long as you follow a strict diet plan.
The Sacred Heart Diet is believed to have come from the Sacred Heart Medical Center’s cardio department because it was assumed that it applies this diet to quickly help obese people in losing weight. This diet has been around for years and the story is nothing but an urban legend.
The Sacred Heart Diet is generally a low calorie soup diet. The soup itself is quite filling due to the vegetables and broth. The soup can also hinder you from eating any heavy food and it may help block any hunger pangs. Many dieters who have tried this soup diet believe that it is a form of cleansing diet because many of them experienced going to the bathroom often during the second day and onwards.
The main ingredients for The Sacred Heart Diet recipe are – 2 large canned tomatoes, green onions, beef bouillon for flavoring, a bunch of celery chopped, 2 cans of beans, 2 lbs. of carrots, 1 bell pepper, chopped mushrooms, vegetable juice, and ½-¼ head of cabbage, shredded.
You may season it will salt, pepper and other flavorings to make it more tasty.
The Sacred Heart Diet’s 7-day diet plan:
Day 1 – you may eat any fruits this day, except for bananas
Day 2 – eat any vegetable you want
Day 3 – as much soup as you want; consume plenty of fruits and vegetables
Day 4 – you can have all the skim milk you want and up to 6 bananas
Day 5 – eat 1 can of tomatoes and 10-20 ounces of beef, and drink 5-8 glasses of water
Day 6 – you may eat all the beef and veggies you want on this day
Day 7 – unsweetened fruit juices, brown rice and fresh vegetables you want; eat at least 1 bowl of soup during the day; avoid bread, alcoholic and carbonated drinks
It is important to take lots of water and non-fattening fluids per day such as non-carbonated and non-caffeinated drinks. If you can stick to only water and fresh, unsweetened juice, the better.
