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!
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 plan 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 link 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.
Below is the food plan for one week. It's the exact same one.
You can swap days around as long as you eat exactly what is shown for that given day. Do not change any meal for something else or you may not lose one stone. Eat exactly what is shown!
Do not eat anything that is not mentioned on the above meal plan.
Eat only what is shown above or do without.
No substitutions allowed.
No eating between meals.
No butter milk or fat.
Drinks = 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.
Salad = lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and celery only
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.
Read more here about my result, because I did The Chemical Diet recently.
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.
Is The Chemical Diet Easy to Cope With?
At 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.
Can You Swap Certain Food for Something Else?
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.
