10 Day Diet

I am not too sure how good a 10 day diet is but thought I would post this diet that seems to be making it’s rounds on the internet. What do you think? Has this or anything like it worked for you in the past?

Just a note from me is that I think that this is a very short term diet, very high in veggie type vitamins and high water foods and very low calories. As they say in the end this is more like fasting more often then not and one more thing, I am not sure about so much coffee. Coffee screws with your metabolism.

The 10 Day Diet

Here, is the fastest safe weight loss program that is scientifically sound-a 10 day diet that wages lightning warfare against fat in true blitzkrieg fashion. It is a low-calorie, high-protein diet with enough carbohydrate to burn up fat but it contains an absolute minimum of foods containing fat calories since your object is to consume these from your fat reserve.

Lose 10 pounds in 10 days

10 Day Diet

The fatter you are, the more you can expect to lose on this diet. The average over person who is reasonably active physically can anticipate an actual fat loss of about 5 pounds in 10 days.

Total loss of should be even greater and immensely gratifying. An average loss of a pound a day, or a total of 10 pounds at the end of the 1o day period is not too much to hope for as the readjusting tissues begin to eliminate surplus water.

Your actual loss will depend upon physical activity, previous caloric diet level, rate of metabolism, tendency of tissues to retain water, and other factors.

In rare cases of extreme water retention it may take four or five more days to show the most weight loss, but when it does show up it often does so with some suddenness.

If you don’t get results on this 10 day diet -we hate to say it -the suspicion is in order that you’re doing between-meal “piecing” or sneaking in an extra snack here and there. At its level of approximately 750 calories, loss is inevitable.

Take as much water, black coffee or clear tea as you wish. Restrict salt, though this is unnecessary unless there is actual water retention

  • Use lemon or orange in tea.
  • Use salt, pepper and vinegar in salad dressings.
  • Take a daily teaspoon of baking soda in water to guard against possible acidosis.
  • Take a daily tablespoon of calcium phosphate for mineral values if your doctor approves.
  • Change the order of foods within the day. Use the milk allowance in coffee or tea.
  • Add white of a second egg to egg portions for greater satisfaction, few calories.
  • Change the order of a day’s complete menu from one day to another if it helps you better to utilize cans of opened foods. Substitute one meat for another (but retain the two servings of liver). Use buttermilk instead of skim milk.

On the 10 Day Diet You Must:

Boil or poach eggs (any method except frying). Broil, boil, bake or roast meats, never fry them. Use water-packed apricots, peaches, etc., or drain off the heavy syrup. Eat only the lean portion of meats.

On the 10 Day Diet You Must Not

Use mayonnaise or oil dressings (mineral oil is permissible but may prevent Vitamin A absorption from vegetables; Vitamin Cocktail guards against this).
Use sugar or butter, cream or fats in foods or their preparation.
Omit items (except coffee or tea) or eat less food than is allowed per day.
Continue the diet beyond ten days without your doctor’s permission, or begin it if he advises against rapid reduction (the diet is perfectly safe for anyone in normal health).

10 Day Diet Vitamin Cocktail

This tasty and vitamin-packed little drink is a valuable accessory to any reducing diet-splendid even if you aren’t reducing, for that matter. It is rich in Vitamins A, C, the B complex, and D, and guards against deficiency of these essentials in restricted diets. The calorie value is negligible considering its vitamin richness. Mix fresh daily and serve chilled.

Mix a tablespoon of dried brewer’s yeast with five drops of haliver oil with viosterol (or other A and D concentrate) in ½ glass of tomato juice. Substitute other fruit juices if you prefer; some persons find milk a more pleasing vehicle than juices. Or you may prefer to munch brewer’s yeast tablets, take one haliver oil capsule per day, and include citrus juices for all-around vitamin protection.

Over a pretty short time, the Miracle Diet should drop your weight just as fast as out-and-out fasting. And you’ll be much happier about the whole thing.

When the body is completely starved for longer than a brief period, it slows down its metabolism in order to conserve its substance-whereas your object, as a reducer, is to use up that substance.

Eventually, of course, a starved body must begin to pull calories from fat stores and the breakdown of these fats results in an accumulation of acids which do not have sufficient minerals and buffers to neutralize them because you have been eating so little food.

It is unlikely that a one-day fast could injure you, if you are in normal health and the idea has any appeal, but the benefits (aside from psychological ones) are dubious from any long-term point of view and physicians who favor rapid reducing diets do not prescribe fasts.

As you can  imagine I did not create this Miracle 10 Day Diet but if you try it why not send me a tweet or a note on Facebook?
