You cannot eliminate anything from the diet. Especially the bacon at breakfast and the salads. You must eat the bacon and salads. These combinations of food burn the fat, omitting one part of the combination will cause the whole thing not to work.
The grapefruit juice is important because it acts as a catalyst that starts the burning process. Don't add or reduce the amount of juice.
Cut down on coffee, it affects the insulin balance that hinders the burning process. Try to limit to 1 cup at meal time.
Don't eat between meals. If you eat the suggested foods you will not get hungry.
You can fry food in butter and use butter generously on vegetables.
Do not eat desserts, breads, and white vegetables or sweet potatoes.

This diet originally came from the Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital in Western Australia.
My daughters friend Raylene's father was a patient there and asked the nurses for the recipe they had used on him.
Since then TV, Radio and many people have changed the recipe adding stock cubes and packet soups etc., but this is the Original.


Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital Diet
It has sometimes been called Diet Soup

It was used for Overweight patients to lose weight rapidly, usually prior to surgery.
ONE MAIN RULE FOR SUCCESS NO FRYING, SUGAR, BREAD OR ALCOHOL.
(A 10 litre cooking pot will be needed) This soup can be eaten whenever you are hungry
and can also be stored in the freezer.


2 cans Peeled Tomatoes
2 cans Sliced Green Beans
Full Bunch of Spring Onions
1 Bunch of Celery
2 Green Capsicums (optional)
1kg Carrots
2 cans of Rosella Tomato Condensed Soup

For extra flavour you may add Salt, Pepper, Chilli, Curry Powder, Parsley, Garlic, or any other Herbs and Spices.
Cut vegetables into medium pieces. Cover with water. Bring to boil then simmer
until the vegetables are tender.
Drink plenty of water, at least 6-8 glasses a day as well as any combination of the
following: coffee, tea, unsweetened fruit drinks and skim milk.

DAY 1 6-8 glasses of water
Eat any fruit NOT BANANA. Watermelon works well as its lower in calories. Eat only
fruit and Diet Soup today, (the more the better.) NOT ONE BITE OF ANYTHING
ELSE THOUGH.
DAY 2 6-8 glasses of water
Any vegetables and lots of Diet Soup. At the end of the day reward yourself with one
baked potato. (stay away from peas, corn and dried beans.)
DAY 3 6-8 glasses of water
Lots of Diet Soup, fruit and vegetables today. NO POTATO THOUGH.

IF YOU HAVE EATEN THE ABOVE FOR THREE DAYS AND YOU HAVE NOT
CHEATED YOU SHOULD HAVE LOST AROUND 2-3 KILOGRAMS.

DAY 4 6-8 glasses of water
Diet Soup, at least three bananas and as much skim milk as you want. Today your body
will need Potassium, Carbohydrates and Protein to lessen the craving for sweets.
DAY 5 6-8 glasses of water
12 Ounces of chicken or beef and up to 6 tomatoes or 1 can of peeled tomatoes.
Eat Diet Soup at least once today. (Remember the more you eat the more you lose.)
DAY 6 6-8 glasses of water
2 or 3 steaks of fish or beef and leafy green vegetables. NO POTATO.
DAY 7 6-8 glasses of water
Brown rice, vegetable juice, fruit juice and stuff yourself with Diet Soup.

IF YOU HAVE NOT CHEATED, YOU SHOULD HAVE LOST 4-8 KILOGRAMS.
IF YOU HAVE LOST MORE, STAY OFF THIS DIET FOR TWO DAYS BEFORE
RESUMING AGAIN. Go off the diet for 24 HOURS before drinking ANY alcohol.

The 3 Hour-Diet by Jorge Cruise
http://my.webmd.com/content/chat_transc ... 108026.htm
The diet recommends eating specific foods every 3 hours.

This diet is designed to get rid of your belly fat by means of lowering your cortisol levels.
Cortisol is the stress hormone that comes from not eating and puts your body in stress mode with starvation.
When you lower cortisol you actually burn belly fat first.
That's brilliant for people that need to lose weight because belly fat is the most dangerous and the most unattractive fat you can have; it sits there and is bothersome.

When feeding your body every 3 hours, your 3 main meals have to consist of Protein, fat, Carbohydrates and fruit or Vege they tally to 400 calories, the snacks are 100 calories unless you weigh over 200 pounds then you have to double the snack calories to 200 calories.
The night time treat is worth 50 calories.

At each of the 3 main meal times you have to have these 4 things on your plate.
Protein - Size of a deck of cards - meat, fish, eggs, dairy or chicken or 3oz of cheese.
Fat - Size of a water bottle cap - Butter, olive oil, flaxseed, fatty dressing.
Carbohydrate - Size of a Rubiks cube bread, rice, pasta or potato etc
Fruit or Vege - Size of 3 DVD cases together (remember raw is always best) fresh is okay, canned has too much harmful salt in it.

07:00 Breakfast - 400 calories
10:00 Snack - 100 calories (nabisco snack pack or chips Ahoy are a good choice)
01:00 Lunch - 400 calories
04:00 Snack - 100 calories (nabisco snack pack or chips Ahoy are a good choice)
07:00 Dinner - 400 calories
10:00 Treat - 50 calories (a Hershey's Reese's® Peanut Butter Cups is suggested) it prevents cravings and feelings of depravation.

The Ornish Diet is one of the best natural ways to unblock arteries
A trial was done where for one year half of a group of volunteers with blocked arteries went on the Ornish Diet and the other half were treated by doctors eating a normal diet omitting red meat for skinless chicken, fish, fruit, vegetables and having medical treatment.
82% of the Ornish Diet volunteers were cured with the others no longer having any chest pains (all had lost weight)
None of the patients treated by doctors had been cured.


EAT ONLY THESE FOODS WHENEVER YOU FEEL HUNGRY
And never leave the table stuffed.
Grains (corn, rice, oats, wheat, millet, barley, buckwheat, and so on)
Vegetables (potatoes, zucchini, broccoli, carrots, lettuce, mushrooms, eggplant, celery, asparagus, onions, sweet potatoes, spinach and so on)
Egg whites

1 cup of non-fat milk or yogurt per day

Calcium
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
Magnesium
B vitamins

EAT THESE FOODS ONLY IN MODERATION

Non-fat or very low-fat commercially available products, including whole grain breakfast cereals, Health Valley chilli (and many other Health Valley products), Kraft Free non-fat mayonnaise and salad dressings, Guiltless Gourmet tortilla chips, Quaker Oats oatmeal, Nabisco fat-free crackers, Fleshmann’s Egg Beaters, Pritkin soups.

AVOID THESE FOODS

Nuts and seeds
High and low fat dairy
Yogurt
Butter
Cheese
Egg yolks

SOS Desperation Diet

People are losing a whole dress size in just one week on this diet, 3kg (6.6 pounds)
and larger ladies are losing 4kgs (8.8 pounds) in the 7 days.

The first two days are said to make you feel a bit rough as you're detoxing lots of the foods you're used to
ie, caffeine, sugar, bread, fat etc... (I'm not sure if you are allowed any oil in your salad or oil in your stir-fry)
But on the third and fourth day you are said to have sparkling eyes, a good skin and are feeling full of energy.

Breakfast
½ grapefruit
1 poached egg
2 poached tomatoes

Lunch
A large tomato
stuffed with mixed tuna &
low-fat cottage cheese
A green salad

Dinner
Stir-fried chicken
with vegetables and noodles

Fresh mixed berries
with low-fat yoghurt

* PLEASE NOTE THAT PEOPLE WITH ARTHRITIS SHOULD AVOID THIS DIET
AS THE TOMATOES, GRAPEFRUIT AND STRAWBERRIES WILL CAUSE INFLAMMED ACHING BONES AND JOINTS.

People are losing a whole dress size in just one week on this diet, 3kg (6.6 pounds)
and larger ladies are losing 4kgs (8.8 pounds) in the 7 days.

The first two days are said to make you feel a bit rough as you're detoxing lots of the foods you're used to
ie, caffeine, sugar, bread, fat etc... (I'm not sure if you are allowed any oil in your salad or oil in your stir-fry)
But on the third and fourth day you are said to have sparkling eyes, a good skin and are feeling full of energy.

Breakfast
½ grapefruit
1 poached egg
2 poached tomatoes

Lunch
A large tomato
stuffed with mixed tuna &
low-fat cottage cheese
A green salad

Dinner
Stir-fried chicken
with vegetables and noodles

Fresh mixed berries
with low-fat yoghurt

* PLEASE NOTE THAT PEOPLE WITH ARTHRITIS SHOULD AVOID THIS DIET
AS THE TOMATOES, GRAPEFRUIT AND STRAWBERRIES WILL CAUSE INFLAMMED ACHING BONES AND JOINTS.

.


Do you know if they specified any type of yoghurt? Sweetened or Unsweetened? etc?

Ah well. I'll go with the safe "unsweetened" option.

Thinking of using this until i get my program in 7 days (and counting)
