I was planning to post the diet I just invented,

but this seems to be a much better one...
for now!!!

from Quinito "The Dean" Henson's
Philippine Star column, "Sporting Chance"

Day 1
Eat all fruits, except bananas.
If you limit your consumption to melons,
you could lose up to three pounds on the first day.
There are no restrictions as to how much fruit to eat.
This puts your body on the start mode for the diet.

Fruits will be your only source of nutrition,
providing what you need to sustain life
except total balance and variety.

Day 2
Consume all vegetables, raw or cooked.
For your complex carbohydrates,
start the day with a large baked potato for breakfast
to give energy and balance.

You may add a pat of butter on the potato.
Vegetables are virtually calorie-free and
provide essential nutrients and fiber.

Day 3
Take in a mixture of fruits and vegetables –
any amount, any quantity but no bananas and no potatoes.
You get carbohydrates from the fruits.
This prepares the body to burn excess pounds.

Day 4
Eat as many as eight bananas and
drink three glasses of milk.
The bananas are for potassium and sodium.
You will notice a loss of desire for sweets.

Day 5
Consume one cup of rice and six whole tomatoes.
Also, drink 12 glasses of water to cleanse your system
of the uric acid you will be producing.

For those who are 39 and below,
you may add beef to the diet for iron and protein,
the equivalent of five quarter-pounders.
The tomatoes are for digestion and fiber.
The beef is optional but the tomatoes are mandatory.

Day 6
Restrict yourself to one cup of rice and
all the vegetables, raw or cooked,
you want for vitamins and fiber.

For those who are 39 and below,
you may repeat the Day 5 menu.

Day 7
Eat one cup of rice and all the vegetables you want
plus drink a glass of fruit juice.

If you get hungry on any day during the program,
you may fill up with a “wonder” soup whose ingredients are:

22 ounces of water, six large onions, two green peppers,
three whole tomatoes, a head of cabbage, a bunch of celery,
four envelopes onion soup mix, herbs and flavoring as desired.

You may substitute some ingredients for
asparagus, peas, corn, turnips, green beans or cauliflower
but never lima, pinto or kidney beans.

Vegetables may be taken in the form of a salad without dressing
except malt, white or wine vinegar, squeezed lemon, garlic herbs
and no more than one teaspoon of oil.

As I mentioned previously,
consult your doctor before taking this diet
to make sure your body is primed for the program.

If your body isn’t prepared to go through
with the seven-day regimen,
you should consider other alternatives to lose weight.
