Are you looking for the Fat Burning Soup Diet? Well, look no farther, because I explain the program here. The plan includes seven days of eating soup and other prescribed foods. Because the fat burning soup diet is very low in calories, you will be able to lose up to 10 pounds in just 7 days.
First of all, you need to make a very large pot of the soup. This recipe makes about 12 servings. You will probably make 2 to 3 pots during the seven days of the diet:
- 6 large green onions
- 2 green peppers
- 1 or 2 cans of tomatoes (diced or whole)
- 3 Carrots
- 1 Container (10 oz. or so) Mushrooms
- 1 bunch of celery
- half a head of cabbage
- 1 package Lipton soup mix
- 1 or 2 cubes of bouillon (optional)
- 1 48oz can V8 juice (optional)
- If V8 juice is not used, put in 12 cups of water
Saute the onions and take the seeds out of the green peppers. Then boil the whole thing for 2 hours. Refrigerate the soup and then reheat on the stove or in the microwave every time you get hungry. This recipe is at the heart of the fat burning soup diet.
But you will get to eat other foods on the fat burning soup diet. But, each day brings about its own rules. Here’s the plan:
Day 1: All the fruit you want except bananas.
Day 2: All the vegetables you want plus one big baked potato with butter.
Day 3: All the fruit and vegetables you want except bananas and potatoes.
Day 4: Bananas and skim milk plus the soup only.
Day 5: 16 oz. of beef and up to 6 tomatoes.
Day 6: 2 to 3 steaks and all the vegetables you want. No baked potato though.
Day 7: Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables
Eat the foods on the diet until you are full, even stuffed. The diet is bland, but you shouldn’t be hungry on it.
The fat burning soup diet works because even if you eat your fill, you still will only intake about 1000 calories a day. So the plan is essentially a modified fast.
Because the plan is only 7 days long, that doesn’t give your body’s metabolism enough time to slow down. So, in order to make up for the reduced calories, your body will start burning the fat thus the name.
You shouldn’t stay on the fat burning soup diet for more than 7 days at a time though. That would actually defeat the purpose. After your initial week is up, go back to a regular meal plan that includes at least 1500 calories. Then, after a week or so, you can go back on the soup diet if you need to lose more weight. At no time should you go more than 7 days on the program without 7 days off.
And that’s the fat burning soup diet made simple.
