I decided to give it a whirl. I started on Tuesday and I've lost 4 lbs AND I cheated yesterday because we went out to dinner. The first day you have only the soup and fruit. The second day soup and vegetables plus 1 baked potato (I had broiled fish also). Day 3 is soup and fruit and vegetables. Day 4 is soup, bananas and skim milk. Day 5 is Soup and beef/chicken or broiled fish and I think Day 6 is similar. I would be very happy if I could lose another 4 lbs by the time the week is over.
