One Good Meal Diet
One of the riskiest fad diets around is the One Good Meal Diet. It will certainly make you lose weight in an instant, but just like all fad diets, the weight loss is only temporary.
The thing about the One Good Meal Diet is basically for an entire week you will consume specific foods for 6 days, following the diet plan. The diet will allow you to have only one good meal for the entire week, and that is only on the 7th day.
By doing the One Good Meal Plan, your meal must only be 600 to 1,200 calories for the entire day. Average calorie intake is 2,500 daily. Imagine getting weaker as the day goes by. There is no nutritional values in this diet and if there is, you will use it all up so you body can cope with your daily activities.
The menu for this diet plan is very disturbing.
Sample meal for Day 1 includes
Breakfast – coffee
Lunch – 1 tomato and 2 eggs
Dinner – 7 oz of red meat and a green salad
Total Calories – 900
On Day 2,
Breakfast – coffee with toast or water cracker
Lunch – 7 oz of red meat and a green salad
Dinner – 5 and ¼ oz of ham and a cup of yogurt
Total Calories – 1,200
On Day 7,
Breakfast – coffee and toast or water cracker
Lunch – 7 oz of red meat + citric fruit
Dinner – anything you like but not over 500 calories
After finishing the 7 days, you’ll need to start on over again.
