Its not exactly a balanced diet... and certainly not good for any length of time. Trouble is that I find that I can put on weight eating the amounts and types of food that I should be losing weight on, and I'm active as well - and I'm not cheating either.
1st in 1 month - breakfast 1 grapefruit (eaten as per an orange ie skinned and in segments). Apple for 11's. Lunch - salad (lots of lettuce, toms, cucumber etc) with balsamic vinegar. Pot of fat-free sugar free yoghurt. Apple/ 2 mandarins for 4's. Supper - some sort of veg dish - ie lots of veg, portion of pulses of some variety, perhaps small amount of rice. (I'm vege - you could probably substitute v. low fat meat option instead of pulses sometimes, although pulses are great for losing weight)
This is really too low on protein, calcium and carbs to do for too long, but as a kick start to a weight loss regime it is great.
CAUTION: when you start to add things to this after how ever long you do it, you need to be really sensible and not go on a blitz otherwise you'll put it all back on in no time at all.
If I want to get this off to a really good start I just have fruit for a week, but don't suggest this for any longer than that, and not everyone can do this without getting faint etc (I find myself very energised by it and am bouncing around on only 5 pieces of fruit a day which shows you my metabolism is just cockeyed).
Hope it helps, although you do need to have a good deal of motivation to do this.
(oh and typical menu fine but do add in a treat occasionally if you want a real chance of sticking to it- a smoothie ice lolly for example once a week will not run your diet but gives you something to wait for, iyswim).
I used to do lots of things like baked fish in tomato sauce (made from scratch), or chicken with garlic and lemon (done in paper parcels in the steamer)- and pasta is fine too as long as you dont chuck in creamys auces or olive oil!. Another one I used to like was simply a tomato and pepper sauce (3 X pappers, onion, garlic, tinned tomatoes,) put into a shallow tray with eggs cracked into wells and topped with 1tsp milk for each egg- used to serve with bread or rice. basic but yummy and quick
With summer theoretically here, courgettes should be in season, less expensive and fresher - I love doing baked courgettes - split in half lengthwise, trickle with natural yoghurt, sprinkle with some fresh rosemary (you could use other herbs, but I love this), then top with 1/2 fat strong cheddar type cheese. Bake at 180 for 30 - 40 mins until courgettes tender.
Can be served with couscous or bulgar or a slice of toast.
Another delicious low cal main meal is stuffed squash. Eg acorn squash. Take top off, remove seeds. Fill cavity with sliced mushrooms, garlic, lightly cooked onion and a spoonfull of pine nuts together with a handful of torn fresh basil. Bake until tender (prob about 40mins - 1hr) Serve with bulgar or couscous and a tomato sauce.
I think 6 weeks is a good aim for 1 stone to start with, although you may find that the first bit of weight goes quite quickly and then you slow down. THe main thing is to start!
I have started and am not on quite such a drastic attempt at the moment, but I do think that it is working which is good.
