Many people lose good weight on this diet. There are usually common reasons as to why they do.
1) They don't cheat! Never.
2) They plan for a weeks worth of food. We tell you how to eat so buy the food and prep in advance. This is a common tip for any successful eating plan.
3) They stick to the foods listed. Now if you're vegetarian or vegan, yes you have to make substitutes, but be wise. For example, if you are substituting something for for beef, get the right amount of protein that the beef would have had along with fat.
4) Have an accountability partner.
5) Set a goal weight.
6) Be ready to eat healthy afterwards.
7) EAT!!!! this is not a see how can eat the least diet. If you don't eat you will fail.

Have fun!

Here are a few things I’ve learned as I am now doing this for the 8th time in 14 weeks:

I took some advice from all of these pages and combined them…and I seldom cheat (ok, I have caved for a late night cashew butter and banana on whole wheat bread a few times).

There are several recipes for the Wonder Soup…many which call for Lipton Soup mix. Since that is high in sodium, I made the soup as follows:

6 Large Onions, 2 Green Peppers (I used jalapeños instead, which I highly recommend!), 2 Whole Tomatoes (fresh or canned), 1 large Head Cabbage, 1 Bunch Celery (I use the leaves too), 28 oz, Water,. Coarsely chop everything.
Wilt the onions and celery in 1 teaspoon of olive oil for about 5 minutes, then add the water and everything else. Season with salt (as little as you can stand) and pepper and any other herbs you may choose. Cook for an hour.

1. Eat the Wonder Soup whenever you get hungry, except for day 1
2. Have a pint of cherry tomatoes handy for day 2. There is a midday energy drop and ½ a pint of them will get you right as rain in a few minutes.
3. Try to do some form of exercise each day…but do not over do it as you will run out of energy, especially on day 2. I do 20 minutes of yoga or Pilates each day.
4. Get creative on veggie recipes…just keep the olive oil to a teaspoon per dish
5. Make banana smoothies on day 4. It is much more palatable than trying to eat 8 bananas whole
6. I am lactose intolerant, so I use rice, almond or soy milk on day 4 with the bananas
7. DRINK as much water as you can
8. Do not drink more than 2 glasses of wine or beer a day. NO HARD ALCOLHOL – that includes vodka!!

4 bananas all day, yes you can have both servings.
you can have soup, and water of course. Make the soup with veg you like, no problem if you don;t like the peppers and such. Your times are correct and are a flexible some. We do time because people tend to skip meals, not good.

It's not so much about the potassium, etc. Is it pure? Is it organic, free range?
Beef do about 3.5 to 4 oz per serving.

cook how you like. rule, never heat meat over 350 degrees if you can, Turns the fat toxic. Cook how you want though.
here is what to eat with it
