The Chemical Diet has been around for years, but have you ever heard of it?Not many people have really. James Duncan wrote about this diet
and tried it himself. I have now tried it a number of times. It's one
of those diets that can come in handy if you need to lose a few
pounds before a last minute event that you are going to attend or
even if you have booked a last minute holiday deal. If you are
desperate to lose a stone in a short amount of time, then
the Chemical Diet is the ideal way to do it.

The Chemical Diet is for people who need to lose weight
before surgery or for anyone that needs to shift weight
quickly. You do the diet for one week every three weeks.
I have tried this diet and it helped me to lose weight in a
short space of time. The only drawback is that you have
to stick to the diet food plan religiously. You have to eat
just what's on the food plan or do without. No cheating
or it won’t work!
The Chemical Diet is a 7-day food plan that you stick to
every three weeks. Apparently, from what I have heard
from others, you can lose one stone by just sticking
to the exact food planmenu that I have included below.
Can you believe that it can work? I wasn't sure about it
at first, but when I gave it a try, after two days I could
see the weight fall away from me. The Chemical Diet is
definitely the plan you want to do if you need to lose
one stone by the end of the week! It truly does work!
I tried it and lost nearly a stone in a week. Anyone can do it.
The following is the food plan that was recommended by James Duncan,
where he writes on how he lost a stone doing the Chemical Diet.
You can, also, read the comments on his blog on how others have tried the diet
and have lost weight.
You can also read comments from people who have
tried the Chemical Diet below this article.
Below is the food plan for one week. It's the exact
You can swap days around as long as you eat exactly
what is shown on that given day. Do not change any
meal for something else or you may not lose one
stone. Eat exactly what is shown!
You can either squeeze the juice from pink
grapefruit or buy a bottle of diluted pink
grapefruit juice (no added sugar) and add it to
a large glass of water. You can buy this in
Tesco if in the UK or Ireland.
Drinks Allowed: black tea, black coffee, lemon tea, grapefruit juice squeezed
from the actual fruit (you cannot drink it throughout the day, but only as it
states on the above menu), tonic, soda or water only throughout the day.
DO NOT DIET FOR MORE THAN ONE WEEK AT A TIME. The diet is only
meant for one week at a time, so do it for one week then have 2 weeks off.
I recommend the Chemical Diet to anyone that can eat the above food
plan for just a week. It's easy if you are determined enough to stick to
it and it's a bonus when you start to see the weight fall off. It can, also,
start you off on a healthy weight loss journey if you use the food plan
continuously, but add more vegetables, salad, fruit, cottage cheese and
low-fat yoghurt to it after the first week. I have done this myself and
it does work. You keep on doing the Chemical Diet every third week.
Of course, I am not saying it is going to be easy, but after a week
on the Chemical Diet, you can be certain that you will have at least
lost one stone.
Lately, I have been doing The Chemical Diet every month and it really does the
trick and helps you lose a lot of weight quickly. I have managed to keep the weight
off too. It's easy once you are in the right frame of mind and you have stuck to the
diet for a while. What I normally do is, do the one-week Chemical Diet and then
carry on eating the same foods on the meal plan but you can add more vegetables
to it along with fat-free cottage cheese. This works and helps you to lose more pounds
in those weeks after you have done the Chemical Diet.
In the beginning, it will be hard. You may get a headache and feel terribly hungry, but
if you drink lots of water, then this will get better. Be determined and just think
what you will feel and look like once you have lost that one stone.
The answer is no. What you can do is do the same day twice if you don't like
something on the menu. For instance, you can repeat Monday two days in
a row if you do not like steak or lamb chops. Never swap lamb chops for
steak. The idea of the chemical diet is to eat the exact food on the meal plan.
Also, please do not put fruit in your salads. I will repeat what I said above
and that is;
ONLY EAT WHAT IS ON THE MEAL PLAN ABOVE. DO NOT
ADD OTHER FOODS OR HAVE MEALS IN BETWEEN.
IF YOU DO, YOU MAY NOT LOSE A STONE IN A WEEK.
