The first thing a person should do is eliminate toxins and stress. These two things lead to weight gain and other health issues. Getting rid of bad foods and detoxification are also vital to losing ten pounds fast.
Once such diet that helps people lose weight in seven days is the Sacred Heart Diet. This diet is a seven day eating plan that eliminates impurities from the body and helps a person lose 10-17 pounds in one week. The diet consist of lots of soups, teas, cranberry juice, bananas, vegetables, and at least eight glasses of water per day. During the Sacred Heart Diet, an individual is not allowed to drink any alcohol, carbonated drinks or eat bread.
Detoxification can also be used to boost weight loss. The best detox for dieters is a fruit and veggie detox including strawberries, bananas, kiwi, celery, and carrots. Many people not only report losing weight quickly from detoxing but also report being able to think more clearly. Detoxification should always be used under the supervision of a doctor and should never include fasting that is solely on water or juice. When done over an extended period of time, detox can result in malnourishment that can lead to serious health complications.
Another popular diet is the Cabbage Soup Diet. The pros of the Cabbage Soup diet is that people lose weight very quickly. The con is that people who do the Cabbage Soup Diet suffer from problems such as weakness, a lack of concentration and in some case a person could lose consciousness. These symptoms occur because of dehydration.
The most popular way to lose weight is through the Master Cleanse. It is extremely popular diet that has been around for decades. The diet was created in the 1940’s by a nutrition guru named Stanley Burroughs. During the Master Cleanse, a person drinks a mixture of water, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and lemon juice. People who try the diet are encouraged to drink about six to eight glasses of the mixture per day. This results in a person consuming about 700 calories. Unfortunately, this is far below the calorie requirements needed to keep the body functioning properly. Famous people like David Blaine, Denzel Washington and Beyonce Knowles have all used the Master Cleanse to drop a significant amount of weight in a very short amount of time. The downside to the Master Cleanse is the fasting typically last for ten days and is not medically safe due to the lack of essential fats, vitamins and proteins missing from the diet. Another downside is that people who lose weight with Master Cleanse report gaining the weight back very quickly.
