Is anyone familiar with loma Linda diet? What kind of diet is that? I hard there is medicine school called that way. Did they invented this diet?
Thanks for answer!
Loma Linda diet is actually a vegetarian diet. Which means eat fresh fruit and vegetables. But that doesn’t mean you cannot eat meat- just not red meat; you can eat chicken and fish. Loma Linda diet is low in fat, but it is very unrealistic for an average person. At least it was for me. It is very restricted, that is why is very hard to follow. Besides every healthy person needs an exercise; loma Linda diet doesn’t mention it.
Anyway, there are a couple of lose weight fast "diets" that Loma Linda also promotes. One is a diet that you start out with liquid protein shakes (as mentioned before). However, there is also the diet that two days out of five you eat only vegetables and then only fruit. Then the other days you add in the others (grains, legumes, nuts products). As mentioned the loose weight fast diets often are only temporary. However, simply changing to a vegetarian diet will cause gradual weight loss and is lasting.
3 large onions
1 green pepper
1 whole tomato (canned or fresh - if canned use 8oz.)
1 head of cabbage
1 bunch of celery
2 carrots (if desired)
1 package onion soup mix
Cut vegetables into bite sized pieces and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Add the package of onion soup mix and other seasoning if desired. After the vegetables have boiled for 15 minutes, reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender.
This soup generates negative calories so you can eat as much of it as you want on every day of the 7 day diet.
The 7 Day Diet:
Day One - Just Fruit except bananas
You can eat all the fruit you want EXCEPT bananas. Melons such as watermelon and cantaloupe have the fewest calories. You are not supposed to eat anything except fruit on this day, or some of the miracle soup. (As much of that as you want.)
Day Two - All vegetables
Eat all the fresh vegetables you want, raw or cooked. Try to eat leafy, green vegetables but avoid dried beans, peas, and corn. These are good for you but are much higher in calories. Surprise -- you can also have a baked potatoe with butter today. Drink lots of water. Eat as much miracle soup as you want.
Day Three - fruits and vegetables
Same as day one and day two, but no potato.
Day Four - bananas and skim milk
Eat as many as eight bananas and drink as many as six glasses of skim milk. The bananas are very high in sugar and will help reduce cravings for sweets.
Day Five - Beef and Tomatoes
You may have 10 to 12 ounces of beef and up to 6 tomatoes today. Try to drink at least 6 glasses of water to wash away any uric acid in your body.
Day Six - Beef and Tomatoes
Eat until your heart is content of beef and vegetables. (No potatoes)
Now - I typed that just as it is written on the sheet I have, but I don't know if they mean all the tomatoes you want, or all the vegetables. I am guessing it means beef and vegetables since it clarifies that you can't have the potato again.
Day Seven - Brown Rice, Unsweetened Fruit Juices, and Vegetables
Gain - stuff stuff stuff
That's what the sheet says.
"Miracle Soup can be eater at any time you feel hungry. Have as much as you wish and as often as you like at any time of the day. This soup will not add calories, so eat all you want. The more you eat, the more you lose."
I know it's been a while since you posted, but hope this helps you out.
Good Luck! :-D
