Updated on March 23, 2011

Losing weight and keeping it for a long time is truly a commitment. And in real life, losing weight has no quick fix. However, certain diets that are designed to jump start your weight loss, so it is possible that you can maintain the weight off effectively over time. The Sacred Heart Diet is one of those jump-start diets because in a span of 7 days, you will be able to see results if you follow the strict diet plan.

The Sacred Heart Diet is believed to be the product of the Sacred Heart Medical Center's cardiology department because it was believed that it uses this diet to help obese people in losing weight in the shortest possible time. This story that surrounds this diet is nothing but an urban legend because it has been around for years.
Basically, The Sacred Heart Diet is a low-calorie soup diet. The veggies and broth make the soup quite filling. The soup can also hinder you from eating any heavy food and it may help block any hunger pangs. There are dieters who believed that this soup diet is a type of cleansing diet because there were some of them who experienced going to the bathroom several times a day starting day 2.

The main ingredients for The Sacred Heart Diet recipe are as follows - 2 cans of beans, a bunch of celery chopped, 2 large canned tomatoes, green onions, beef bouillon for flavoring, 2 lbs. of carrots, 1/2-1/4 head of cabbage - shredded, 1 piece bell pepper, chopped mushrooms, vegetable broth.

You may season it will salt, pepper and other flavorings to make it more tasty.

The Sacred Heart Diet's 7-day diet plan:

Day 1 - eat any fruit you like except for bananas

Day 2 - you may eat all the veggies you want

Day 3 - as much soup as you want; consume plenty of fruits and vegetables

Day 4 - have all the skim milk you want and eat up to 6 bananas on this day

Day 5 - eat 1 can of tomatoes and 10-20 ounces of beef, and drink 5-8 glasses of water

Day 6 - you may eat all the beef and veggies you want on this day

Day 7 - unsweetened fruit juices, brown rice and fresh vegetables you want; eat at least 1 bowl of soup during the day; avoid bread, alcoholic and carbonated drinks

Make sure that you take lots of water each day and none of the carbonated and caffeinated beverages. If you can stick to only water and fresh, unsweetened juice, the better.

The Sacred Heart Diet is the fastest way to lose at least 10 pounds in 7 days. The main challenge here is how you can keep the weight off. However, you can also do this with accompanying physical activity and not just by eating the right foods.
