The Rules of the Sacred Heart Diet
Note: Make sure you first read Sacred Heart Diet
1) Since the diet is extreme low-calorie, you need to eat a lot of the "allowed foods" each day, in an attempt to prevent unwanted side effects. In particular, to prevent the frequently-reported diarrhea, you should eat a cup of fiber every day during the diet.
2) Drink lots of water. Six to eight glasses per day, if not more.
3) At no time during the diet are you allowed to have: alcohol, fried foods, pop/soda (even diet carbonated drinks are not allowed!), or bread.
Allowed Fluids: Tea, Coffee, Cranberry juice, Fruit juices (unsweetened only!), skim milk. And of course, water.
Recipe for the "special" soup:
Ingredients: 3 or more large green onions, 2lbs carrots, 1 bunch celery, 2 green peppers, 2 cans green beans, 1-2 cans of stewed tomatoes, 1pkg Lipton Chicken Noodle soup mix, 1 large can Beef Broth (no fat).
Cut the vegetables into small or medium chunks. Cover with water. Boil quickly for ten minutes. Then reduce heat to a simmer, and continue cooking until all the vegetables are tender. Season with salt & pepper, parsley, curry (if desired). You can also use bouillon, Worcestershire sauce, or hot sauce.
The Daily diet Rules:
The soup can be eaten anytime, any day. (So can any of the Allowed Fluids.) Be sure to have the soup at least once every day.
Day #1: You can eat any fruit except bananas. Cantaloupes & watermelon are preferred (since they're lower in calories).
Day #2: You can eat any vegetable - raw, canned or cooked. Green leafy vegetables are preferred. Try to avoid starches (corn, peas, beans). You can add any of these veggies to the normal soup recipe today. Finally at dinner, you can add a large baked potato, with butter.
Day #3: Any fruits AND any vegetables. (No baked potato though.)
By the end of this day, the diet states that you "should have lost 5-7 pounds".
Day #4: You should eat 3 bananas or more. You should also drink as much skim milk as you want.
Day #5: You can have 10-20 oz of beef, and a can of tomatoes (or up to 6 fresh tomatoes).
Day #6: You can eat as much beef as you want, with as much vegetables as you want (but no baked potato).
Day #7: You can have brown rice, (with cooked vegetables if you like). You should eat vegetables and fruit today, as well.
Once again I must repeat, the diet WILL cause unpleasant side effects. Be sure to eat the cup of fiber each day - or you'll be spending half the day in the washroom! And again, I remind you that this is a basically unhealthy diet, to be used only in the short-term - and never more than seven days at a time.
