How Does the Sacred Diet Work?

What is the Sacred Diet?

    The Sacred Heart Medical Diet is a 7-day eating plan that is designed to cleanse the body of impurities. In addition, this diet also causes those who follow it to lose 10 to 17 lbs. and experience a burst of energy. It is a diet that was supposedly developed at the Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital for overweight patients to help them lose weight rapidly before they went into surgery.

    One of the bases of the diet is soup. To make the soup, mix 3 large green onions, 1 to 2 cans of stewed tomatoes, 1 large can of non-fat beef broth, 1 bunch of celery, 2 cans of green beans, 2 lbs. of carrots, 2 green peppers and 1 package of chicken noodle Lipton Soup mix. Cut up the veggies into small pieces. Place in water and boil for 10 minutes. Simmer the soup until the vegetables are tender.

    The soup is the main food of the diet, because you can eat it any time you are hungry. In fact, it is recommended that you eat as much of it as possible, since it will cause you to lose more weight.

    You cannot consume ANY alcoholic beverages while you're on this diet.

What Does the Sacred Diet Consist of?

    On the first day of the diet, the dieter should only consume fruit and soup. Any fruit can be eaten, except for bananas. Cantaloupes and watermelon are lower in calories than other fruits, and are recommended.

    On the second day, eat all vegetables--no fruit. That means all and only vegetables--raw, cooked or canned. For dinner, have a baked potato with butter.

    On the third day, eat as much soup, vegetables and fruit that you want. By day three, you should have lost 5 to 7 lbs. if you followed the diet.

    On day four, consume bananas and skim milk. Drink all the milk that you can, eat the soup and consume at least 3 bananas. This part of the diet will give your body the potassium and carbs that it needs.

    On day five, you can have beef and tomatoes, and soup at least once (the beef can be substituted with chicken). Eat only 10 to 20 oz. of beef and a can of tomatoes. Or you can have up to 6 tomatoes that day.

    On day six, you can eat beef and vegetables as much as you want. Eat the soup at least once.

    On day seven, eat brown rice, unsweetened fruit juice and vegetables. Eat all of that until you are full, stuffed even. Don't forget to eat the soup.

    If you have not cheated, you should have lost 10 to 17 lbs. on this diet by the end of the seventh day.

    Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water with this diet. You can also have black coffee, unsweetened fruit drinks, cranberry juice and skim milk.

How Does the Diet Work?

    This diet works fast because you are burning more calories than you are taking in. The soup is a mix of ingredients that will burn fat.

    As with any diet, there are pros and cons. This diet is healthy and can benefit one's health since it consists of lean proteins and fresh fruit and vegetables. However, it is drastic. Once the diet is over, dieters have to be extra careful not to binge on unhealthy foods and not to return to bad eating habits.
