Japanese diet - results in 2 weeks (14 days)


The question could be why Japanese diet, but just think of how do you imagine a Japanese person? I'm pretty sure most of you have your own imagination, but i'm sure only a few of you if any, imagine Japanese fatty or obese. Yes, they are short, but only a few (i'm talking about sumo fighters) may be obese. These people are very slim, and their health is one of the best all around the world, so i believe, there is something we should learn from them.

So what i would like present you today is a diet according to Japanese. I found it in some Lithuanian website, and there were many pleased and happy reviews. In worked for about 95% of those who took it so i believe some of you may be interested to give it a try. What i must say is that this diet is very strict and may be heavy to follow. It takes 14 days and is of two rounds split to 7 days. So this is your new menu for next 14 days:

Day one.

  • Breakfast: Black coffee.
  • Dinner: Two hard-boiled eggs, fresh cabbage salad with seed-oil, a glass of tomato juice or one tomato.
  • Supper: Boiled or fried fish 200g (7oz), fresh cabbage salad with seed-oil.

Day two.

  • Breakfast: Black coffee with toast.
  • Dinner: Boiled or fried fish, fresh cabbage salad with seed-oil.
  • Supper: 200g (7oz) of boiled beef, a glass of buttermilk.

Day three.

  • Breakfast: Black coffee.
  • Dinner: One hard boiled egg, three large boiled carrots with seed-oil.
  • Supper: A few apples.

Day four.

  • Breakfast: Black coffee.
  • Dinner: One large boiled or fried in seed-oil parsnip or parsley root, apple.
  • Supper: Two hard-boiled eggs, 200g (7oz) of boiled beef, fresh cabbage salad with seed-oil.

Day five.

  • Breakfast: Fresh grated carrot dewed with lemon juice.
  • Dinner: Large boiled or fried fish 400g (14oz), glass of tomato juice.
  • Supper: Boiled or fried fish 200g (7oz), fresh cabbage salad with seed-oil.

Day six.

  • Breakfast: Black coffee.
  • Dinner: 500g (17.5oz) of boiled chicken, salad made of fresh carrots or cabbage.
  • Supper: 2 Hard boiled eggs, fresh cabbage salad with seed-oil.

Day seven.

  • Breakfast: Tea.
  • Dinner: 200g (7oz) of boiled beef and some fruits on your own.
  • Supper: Anything from a previous day's diet, except the third day.

After 7 days this cycle should be repeated for 7 more days. So it's 14 days as mentioned before. After 14 days you should loose about 7-8kg (15-18lbs). You should not try this diet for more that 2 weeks. It may be harmful to your health. Make at least 6-8 weeks break if you want to go for more.

If you succeeded, post a comment, so the others could make better impression about this diet!

Did you try before? How many kg-s did you loose weight?

sweetsnakie 5 years ago

was on diet 3 times within last 5 years. Diet is super easy but sometimes extreme. First couple of days so hard to get into it last couple of days indiference to food and you start skipping some food and yet big cravings for at least the darkest chocolate. I did loose 8-9 kg each time.

Nadia La 5 years ago

My aunt lost loads of weight, after being on that diet (although some of the ingredients were different, for example the egg meant to be raw in her version of the diet, thin it was the only thing that was different)

Anyway she was big, at least size 18-20 and she got to size 10-12, which was quite shocking to be honest. So Yeah, the diet works, just don't change the ingredients and don't overeat. Personally I think that a bit of exercising would help too, I usually dance at home (when alone :D and air-boxing is also a great fun!! :D )

Good luck

I believe that avoiding prepared foods may be the first step to lose weight. They can taste great, but prepared foods have very little nutritional value, making you take more only to have enough vigor to get throughout the day. In case you are constantly feeding on these foods, switching to whole grain products and other complex carbohydrates will assist you to have more power while taking in less. Thanks alot : ) for your blog post.

wow i am on my 5th day and i have so much tentations!! I did supper all week for my family because my parents are renovating...and I couldn't eat it!!! I am also becoming obsessed with food, searching recipes etc. I had a dance class today and tommorow i have gym class!! I dont know how i will do it :( But i am so happy because i lost 8 pounds already and 2 inches of waist !! :) i am afraid that if i stop now, the weight will come back.

If i cheated on one dinner, can i still continue the diet?

fanatik_efka 4 years ago from Vilnius, Lithuania Author


i'm sure you can. When being on diet, you must be possitive and think of what you're doing as good as you can. And cheating on your diet isn't such a bad thing as on your spouse, so don't worry. Continue from where you stopped and be happy of your results!

Deena 4 years ago

how many inches off your waist/thighs do you lose doing this for 2 weeks?

fanatik_efka profile image

fanatik_efka 4 years ago from Vilnius, Lithuania Author


it depends on many things. In short - the more you weight, the more you lose. It can be anything from 4 to even 20 pounds. Harder to describe it in inches, but at least 2 inches is easy to get.

Deena 4 years ago

Ok thank you!

Also, would it be bad to eat other low calorie foods as snacks? For example, cucumbers and celery? And if you follow this plan for two weeks, do you guarantee long lasting results or will you just gain everything back after you start eating normally again?

fanatik_efka profile image

fanatik_efka 4 years ago from Vilnius, Lithuania Author


first of all, you should try it at least for a week to see the results starting to get instantly. Although, it's made to be used for two weeks, but for starters a week is ok. I will definitely see the first results by the day 7, after what i believe you will want to continue.

The other thing about low calorie snacks is a bit confusing. You see all diets is about discipline. I understand, that it's sometimes hard to do exactly what's said, but you should at least try. As i mentioned before, give it a try for a week and do exactly what's said, then if you can - continue for another week, if can't - at those low calorie snacks.

Talking about lasting of the results is hard. It does last, if you eat healthy, do some sports. If you just sit on the couch and order pizza's than ain't gonna work. This diet is a part of your healthy life and as i mentioned in the article you can repeat it after 6-8 weeks, to keep you weight getting away. Probably after you do it first time some part of what you lost will regain, but after 2nd or 3rd, let's call it "sesion", your weight will stay at the level you reach.

Deena i recommend you to try it out. Give it a week strictly by the rules and see what happens.

Loose it with smile :)

That sounds like you'll be very hungry most of the time. Breakfast should always be a meal, if you're going to skip a meal skip your last meal of the day. Also, that's not very Japanese. I live in japan and most meals are not like that. Everyone here eats rice with every meal, if you skip the rice and only eat the other things you will get hungry very quickly. The reason why they can eat less is because they eat rice and that fills them up enough. They also almost never eat brown rice only white non-enriched rice.

Definitely works 4 years ago

I am on day 4 of the diet, but I've done 2 sessions already, over the last year. It definitely works. I lost 12 lbs the first time, and 10 the second time. It's very strict, and u have to stick to it exactly. But, come on people, it's only 2 weeks! You can do anything if you put your mind to it, and the results are worth it. And, most importantly, you keep the weight off as long as you are sensible about your eating habbits after. Try it, you won't be disappointed!!!

Can I replace the beef with something?

fanatik_efka profile image

fanatik_efka 4 years ago from Vilnius, Lithuania Author

guys,Obetty and Jenna,

both of you should understand, that this is a very strict diet. You do it exactly as it is, but for your patience and accuracy, you get rewarded. Still you can adapt it in your very own ways, but what i believe is that it could be made on second session of doing diet. I insist you to try doing one two week session as it should be. Get to see the results, and then adapt it as you like.

I recommend you try changing any of the products very careful. You need to eat something, that makes you feel good, but has just a minimal level of calories, still making you feel good.

Obetty, what's about alcohol, is that i recommend to use none of it. Still that's not for everyone, so it you really need to have a drink, i recommend you choosing something, that has a higher level of alcohol in it, so there would be less glucose in it. A shot of tequila or tho is better then a bottle of beer.

you can do whatever you want, but the diet is THE diet. It must be done according to rules mentioned to be 100% succesfull. Everyone wants to do something differently, but everyone forgets, that this is diet we are talking about.

I recommend keeping it according to the plan to get the promised succes rate, otherwise i cannot guarantee you anything

Is there a specific type of cabbage that must be used. When you say a cabbage salad is that just plain chopped cabbage .

Hi Vera-lynn,

It's nice that you are about to start this diet. I wish you some good results!

As for cabbage salad it should be simply grated cabbage with some grated carrots and a few drops of olive oil.

It doesn't really matter what fish it is, it just has to be low in fat. Choose the one you like. And what's about the amount whit fish it can be up to 500 g (16 oz).

Have a nice diet!

Lina from Klaipeda 3 years ago

Hello everyone,

I'm glad that so many people talk good about this diet. I did started it for a first time, today I'm working on 3 day. I do have to say my stomach is changing form everyday. I do not have a goal how much to loose, my goal is keeping it for 13 days and not change a thing and I'll be happy with result whatever it will be.

Personaly for me to follow is not difficult cause I do like all the ingredients, though i do not like boild carrots, but I'll eat them raw, so hope its just will be better.

So wish you all good luck on following.

Katerina 3 years ago

Hello everyone,

Just to let everyone know that is trying this diet for the first time, that it's amazing and it work's but you have to stick to it. I did it the first time maybe three years ago and I lost 25lbs and my eating habits did change as well, I didn't crave sweets anymore. I did gain the weight back due to pregnancy, but did the diet again afterwards and did a couple of changes to it, such as: instead of fish or beef I ate chicken, and since I couldn't go without breakfast I ate a cooked egg in the morning and coffee and still lost over 20lbs.

I started the diet again this year, and today is my day 3 and I am doing it just like I did it the second time. When I feel hungry I try to drink as much water as I can or have some celery which is ok too. I already lost 8lbs. but than again I started at 168lbs and my goal is to be 150lbs by the end of this diet.

It really does work and if you add a couple of simple and easy workouts a day like hula hoop, walking, some sit ups and squats; you will get even better results as long as you STICK TO THE DIET.

In two weeks going from size 14 to 8 is worth it and it's not that hard, but the best part of it all is you will change your eating habits so it's going to be easier to keep weight off and loose more.

fanatik_efka profile image

fanatik_efka 3 years ago from Vilnius, Lithuania Author


You should not be thinking that you loose weight every day. The first days are always the most effective - it's a surprise to your body. But it will show you the effect in a longer period of time: compare what you have today whit what you will have in 2-3 days.

And one more thing: 1/2 lb? really? This is just so much, that even your outfit may matter :)

Hope you will get good results at the end of diet :)

Can I eat some apple and drink water?

I`m so tired. It`s just second day.

Kristina 3 years ago

Thinking of starting this diet.. I have read somewhere that you can do this diet only once a year, in order not to damage your improved metabolism.

My concern here is a food quantity. Says apples for a dinner...so how many you can eat. Says fish...how much? I want to put all strict commitment and don't want to make any mistakes here.

And another important question is if you are allowed to drink a herbal tea? Or it is only water in between meals?

Thank you very much for your answer in advance :-)

fanatik_efka profile image

fanatik_efka 3 years ago from Vilnius, Lithuania Author


If you really feel tired, you should not risk your health and do anything you feel might be bad for your body. If you feel you need some some energy, then ok, take an apple of drink some water. You can even slowly melt some half of a spoon of honey in your mouth. It will provide you with some additional energy sugar free (lets's say so).

and Kristina,

about doing this diet once a year. It is kinda extreme diet, but if you do it as it says and feel quite okay after the diet, you can do it again after 2 months or so. More regular sessions are not recommended.

about the quantities. It seems that I really missed some, although I posted this diet here more that 2 years ago and people are still doing great. That's a strange thing really :) It probably proves it's effectiveness. I will edit the plan with the information you asked, just scroll back to the beginning.

on the tea. This one is a bit more of a problem. Since the diet is so extreme, your body will need to get quite a big amount of water. I mean pure water not as part of tea, lemonade, juice or something. Of course drinking tea ain't bad, but i recommend you on consuming more water than any other drink. It's calorie, sugar and all the other stuff free, so best for your body.

I appreciate your comments! If any more questions arise, please don't hesitate to ask, although it might take me up to 24h to answer to you, since the timeline differences and the fact that i'm being informed on comments only once a day and it's when i sleep :)

Have a great weight loosing guys! Keep healthy!

I am a 36 year old male who is currently on the diet.

I had about 10kgs (22lbs) to lose to get to my "ideal" weight.

I am currently on day 12 and I am thinking about stopping.

Over the first 5 days I lost on average 1kg (2.2lbs) a day but I have not lost any weight over the last 7 days.

Unless I lose aother 1kg by tomorrow I will stop as I have noticed that it not just fat but muscle that I lost.

Think carefully about it before you start this diet.

Dear ELW, there's been many people who took this diet and most of them were happy about it. As i said in the article, you should let your body rest for at least 6 weeks to repeat this diet. It has a very strong impact on your body and its functions, so you can't do it again earlier than the time mentioned before.

Hello 1st thank you fanatika for this diet. After reading all the comments ive started it!

I am on my 10th day and so ar ive lost 4.5kg. Im italian so I dont know conversion in pounds. Only thing ive noticed is tht after 6th day loosing slows down getting me worried. Since I too would like to reach my ideal goal I will need to repeat it another few times I guess according to the rest periods of 6 weeks. And here comes my big question!:)

A part from healty eating do you recommend a detailed maintainance diet? Can u give me some tips? Please? It would be easy for me to stick to some plan then just eating approximately. Thank you again this is great! Btw I dont have any problems in following it nor cravings.

I'm so glad I found this page! Such a great place to discuss a progress of following this diet with other dieters.

I'm in my 50th, fairly health and fitness conscious woman. While generally I eat healthy and workout 2-3 times a week, sometimes I can't resist some junk food and sweets. I'm 5'2" (160cm), and my weight before the diet was 130 lbs (59 kg). My goal is to lose 5-10 lbs of fat.

I started this diet 5 days ago. So far I've lost 4 lbs. I find this diet not too difficult to follow, except for the breakfasts. After drinking my black coffee I feel so starving and can hardly wait till dinner time. Day #3 was brutal too. I need my proteins!

So far, I was trying to follow my usual gym routine (1 hour of cardio class followed by weight training). This wasn't easy though. I've felt very weak and tired while at the gym. So I decided to take it easy and skip the gym while on the diet. I'll do some walking and yoga instead.

I'll keep you guys updated on my progress...

This not how the Japanese eat! Not even when they're on a diet. This is basically a starvation diet. If anyone does lose weight it will be mostly water weight and muscle loss. Meaning you will put it all back on, if not more, when you start eating normal.

Besides am I the only person who finds it suspicious that there are so many people making the exact same grammar and spelling mistakes in their comments as the author.

Thank you for being suspicious! This is great that you are critical about things, but there is no conspiracy theory here. You can easily see ip addresses of people posting, so there is no way I did it myself. I can't even see no need for that, cause there are many people who posted positively only once and then gone. If I'd be cheating I'd keep posting for all the 14 days. As I recall there's been only one person, Jesie, posting every day through her diet and I appreciate that!

So to conclude, Dear Mary, I do not cheat or post on behalf of other people. Is you cannot believe this diet works there are two options: try it or just don't care about it. As what for grammar and spelling mistakes, this might be due to fact that most of people leaving comments are not native English speakers as myself and, well let's be honest, most people do same mistakes when using foreign language.

Have a great day guys!

Hey , Im gonna try this diet but do you think it would be okay too add wakame to the cabage salads ... it would make it more japanese .... also instead of parsnip can i have some steamed brocoly of something .... theres just some things i cant stomach the taste of

Konstantin 3 years ago

No idea why did it post automatically before :) Anyhow, trying out this diet, i'm now on day 2, will be taking photos before and after, maybe post them if there's any changes :) I was wondering though, can't i add pepper to anything ? Cuz all i know pepper increase metabolism and it has no bad "material" that would not coincide with this diet. I live in Norway, so have no problem with the tasty fresh fish, but would like to get those peppers on the salads and eggs and BEEF :) Also, do you guys know can i use garlic ? http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and... unless the only reason for it is it has a lot of carbs, i'm afraid to try it out on my own since i don't really want to spoil and keep it original, but then again, any thoughts on this matter ? :) Cheers. Btw i'm Lithuanian too mate :)

Any ideas?

Alla 2 years ago

I've been on this diet for two weeks; as a result I've lost 8lbs of the planned 10lbs. Yet, I'm satisfied with the results. While keeping the diet, I didn't have any cravings, which was amazing after what I read in the comments. I have a sweet tooth, but I didn't have any desire for sweet stuff. As for no salt, first it was weird; but later I realized how much the taste of fish and meat had improved without salt. Sometimes during the 2nd week, I didn't have any interest for food and skipped a meal or just ate an apple. Still, I felt absolutely fine. Now let's see for how long I'll be able to keep this weight.

I'm starting tomorrow for just 1 week ... but the meal hour confuses me, does that mean the 1st meal should be around 6pm? - I'm afraid i might passed out. Is that okay i fix 1st meal to lunch time? I will also substitute coffee with tea since coffee starves you more. Im 5'7 and I'm 133lbs, my goal is to lose 12lbs. Wish me great luck!!

Hello, i am from South Africa. This diet was recommended by a friend who lost about 10kg in the two weeks. I want to know if the cabbage can be substituted with lettuce, because most diets i have tried so far has the lettuce salad.

I started the diet yesterday and I'm not going to lie day 1 was hard. You completely shock the system. I stepped on the scale and was sitting at 137 lbs. This morning I was 133 lbs. I suspect it was a lot of water weight. But I'm happy to see it going down. Day 2 seems to be going well.

I was grateful for toast this morning. Definitely help with the carb craving. I'll check in again.

kthnia 2 years ago

Beginning of day 3. Got on the scale this morning and was excited to see that I dropped another 2 lbs. That's 131 lbs now for those of you who are too lazy to calculate :p

Today's going to be the most challenging day as there is not a lot of food. What's helped is definitely drinking more water when you get hungry and sleeping earlier.

Will check in again

kthnia 2 years ago

4 pm of Day 6 just finished the boiled chicken and cabbage salad. I'm sick of cabbage, but am happy to report that I'm in my 20's again. Stepped on the scale this morning and it was 129 lbs. That's a total of 8 lbs thus far.

Right around the middle of day 4 as I was eating that parsnip, I was ready to call it quits. But being able to fit into my skinny jeans again without a massive muffin top was just the encouragement that I needed.

This diet is tough, it's a battle between temptation and will power. But I constantly remind myself "eyes on the prizes....eyes on the prizes"

I share my journey for 2 reasons. The first; inspiration. Sometimes the difference between failure and success is just as simple as hearing someone say "u can do it". The second; self motivation. Writing about my experience publicly, forces me to preserve to the end, in order for this to hold any relevance.

So until the next time. "YOU CAN DO IT"

Hi kthnia!

It's so nice to hear from you! I very much appreciate commentators who come here to share their stories and to encourage others to strive for better!

Thank you very much and I hope you will reach your goals!

kthnia 2 years ago

8 am day 10. Thanks fanatik_efka for the reply and diet. I wasn't sure if u were still managing this site.

Can't believe I'm here on day 10 already. Got in the scale this morning and I'm 126lbs. That's a grand total of 11 lbs.

The days seen to be flying by rather quickly after u endure the first week. You no longer have to anticipate "how hungry u will be" or "will that fill me up". Once u accomplish the first week the second week becomes a breeze. Your body has also adjust to the lower food intake and the lack of flavour (I'm Canadian so yes there is a "u" in flavour).

Interestingly, u also become more aware of what u put in your mouth and what others put in their mouth. For me this sacrifice will not be in vain. My husband and friends keep temping me to break this diet with a buffet feast, to which I replied "buffets are evil". It's not just about this diet but it's also about the days thereafter.

I leave u with that. Until next time.

kthnia 2 years ago

Day 1 after the diet. I feel great.

Final weigh in......drum roll please......121 lbs. That's a grand total of 16 lbs in 14 days. The diet did what it said it would.

The last 4 days of the diet just flew by. I was no longer starving and towards the last 3 days I was leaving out food cause I wasn't hungry.

For those of you who are skeptical there is only one way to prove it wrong.....try it. I bet you will be pleasantly surprised with the results.

After the diet. ......

So I was totally looking forward to this day for what seems like a life time ago. I would picture all the things I would eat, and salivate at just the thought.

So here I am, the very day I've been anticipating and you wouldn't believe what I ate.......cabbage (yes cabbage and egg whites) lol.

My sweet craving has diminished. My outlook towards food has changed. I have a new found appreciation for the natural flavour of beef, chicken, fish and vegetables.

All in all I'm glad that I did this. I hope my updated have been helpful.

Would love to see others succeed and hear about their journey.

Good luck

hi everyone, i am on the 3rd day of the diet. Since reading the results of others really did motivate me, here is hoping mine will do the same too.

So i started at 68.1 kg= 1501. lb, height 165cm=5.5

day 3 i am 66.8kg=147 lb

so that was about 600gr=1.3 lb of weight per day i suppose. i wasn't all that hungry as i expected myself to be. the trick is to keep your mind on other things and drinking water, that really is thats keeping me.

i will update tomorrow hoping i will be at 66.2 kg.

Cris 2 years ago

Thank you so much fanatik

Day 2 loss 1 lbs. I'm so glad I'm not having craving sweets which is my weakness. This program is good just put your mind on it.

My target is to loss 20 pounds. Gain all of this weight in last two months and everyone I know criticize on how I put all the weight and they are rude.

I was hurt at first but then I realize I like criticism. Makes me motivated. People are always negative and have something to say but don't let them ruin you. :)

Jen 2 years ago

Hi! Today is my 4th day and I started at 131lbs, I weighed in this morning at 128 lbs. I was ready to quit today, I just feel too hungry and too tired, having a ton of cravings for really bad things! lol (bacon and cheese) for some weird reason since the only thing I ever crave are sweets. However I wont give up just yet! Ill try to finish at least the first week and see if I am strong enough to continue to the second week. I eat anything I want at any time and that is totally my problem right now :( I miss that.

This is proving way harder than I thought when I first read the ingredients, I am also changing some of the ways i am making the foods so I believe that is why is working so different so me and I am not having the same success as everyone else.

Please try to stick to it as much as you can, don't give up!

Hi Fanatik -Efka

I had a baby 8 weeks ago, I started walking every day and I need to loose 10kg. I plan to breastfeed at least for 4 months. when do you suggest I start with this diet, I don't want to harm the baby.

Thank you for the reply

fanatik_efka 2 years ago from Vilnius, Lithuania Author


In your situation I strictly advice you not to take this or any other such diet until you breastfeed. Any diet causes loss of extra energy normal person doesn't need. In your situation, so have to recover and moreover - feed you newborn baby.

So as mentioned before - don't start this diet until you breastfeed.

Hamu 2 years ago

Thank you so much, for now I will keep eating , do light exercise as recommended by the Dr until I breastfeed no more. then I will begin with the diet. See you in few months.

esther 22 months ago

Guys... remember it's important to keep the sequence as it IS, Do not do too much substitute or the diet won't work as it's intended. And 2ndly, Dinner is your Lunch and Supper your dinner. The diet was mistyped. So have your lunch at around 2pm and supper 6/7pm. Good Luck. It's not easy I know. But just imagine how Hot and lighter you are going to be in 2weeks. . Yeppie

Hi everyone well this is my 7 th day and i am ending my diet today. I feel nauseous all the time i just couldnt take it anymore. I am not sure why but i am gonna eat very clean for a week and try this for a week again. So the total loss is 3.6 kg in 7 days. Not bad at all, i am sure i could have lost 7 if i continued so goodluck to anyone who is reading this blog. The diet does what it promises.:))

Jina 19 months ago

Going to start this diet tomorrow... I want to post it publicly to keep myself on track and motivated! I tried this diet before, a little over a year ago. I only lasted 5 days and even cheated one night, but I did lose about 7lbs, so it really does work! I have really bad eating habits and tend to binge eat junk food one day and not eat much the next few days, so I want to change that. I hope if I really stick to this diet, it'll help me get into the habit of eating regular, healthy meals. If I can stick to this, then I know I can control myself!

Right now I'm 59kg. Last year I was 56kg. My ultimate goal is 48kg (I want to be very thin; just a personal goal and not because of others opinions), so I'm hoping I'll get at least halfway there! If I can end this diet at 54kg, I will be more than happy!

Hello i am going to start this diet tomorrow

Sophie 15 months ago

Hi everyone

Snow, it is 2 weeks today, what are your results??

13 months ago

I feel really discouraged because I followed the diet well for four days and even added more oil than I needed to the cabbage salads just for extra calories, but still I fainted today. I think this is because I have a very hectic schedule and am active for most of the day. I work 8.5 hours at a children's center Monday-Friday, and even after that I go to night classes, so I am out and working hard for about 14 hours in the day. I think because I need so much energy, this amount food is not enough to keep me running. What do you suggest I do? Do you think I should eat more meat each time or more eggs, etc?

13 months ago

I would also like to add that I tried this diet two years ago, and it worked so well! I only did one week and lost 7lbs, and I was much less busy at the time. So I have been able to do this diet fine in the past with no issues with energy. It's just lately I have such long and demanding days that I think it's not enough food for me anymore!
