The Chemical Diet Where You Can Lose a Stone in One Week - My Result

I wrote about the Chemical Diet last week and how I was going to try it (you can find the article here).

Diets Photo credit: Denise Larkin




 I did the Chemical Diet and I lost 10 pounds by the end of the week.  You can lose up to a one stone if you stick to the food plan (which I have listed here).  

Read on to learn more...



I found the diet difficult the first three days, but then it got easier on my fourth day. The Chemical Diet can be done quite easily if you put your mind to it and you are serious about losing weight.

On this diet, you are not aloud to have milk in your tea and coffee, but I did have one teaspoon of skimmed milk in my first cup of tea in the mornings and then I had black coffee the rest of the time.  Of course, I still lost weight.  If I had left out the milk, I would have lost a stone.

On my last day, I ate some grapes in between meals, which isn't allowed except on days where you eat fruit, but I still lost weight.  

So, if anyone does do this diet and you really need to lose a stone, then you must be strict with yourself and stick to the food plan.

Doing the Chemical Diet is worthwhile if you really need to lose weight quickly, but you must try to continue eating healthily afterwards to stop you from putting the pounds back on.  

I will do this diet again in three weeks time to carry on losing weight.  

If you do try the diet, then please comment below to let me know how much weight you have lost.

Check out my last article here where you can find the food plan for the Chemical Diet.

  1. The best diet for losing weight is Lifestyle Beats Diet, according to the experts who rated the diets below for U.S. News. HMR Diet, Biggest Loser and Jenny Craig came in close behind. Other diets performed as well or better in enabling fast weight loss, but long-term weight loss is more important for your health.

    1. I have tried that Garcina product and the only weight loss I saw was in my wallet. I should have realized that if it seems too easy, then it can't be real. :(

  8. I've done this diet several times and having done for a full wk I found most of the weight loss occurs on the first three days so now I frequently do this diet but only for the three days and have consistently lost roughly 5-8 per week on it. Sometimes when you've done it for a wk and go back to regular eating then it's a shock to system again and some of the weight lost goes back on quiet easy but by doing it for three days I also found this stopped any weight going back on .my advice, do it for three days every week,it's a good balance between dieting and healthy eating in the same week.

  9. I'm on my 6th day on this diet, and have found it really good. I have been fine with the Americans int of foods which I thought mayb I will find difficult but I actually found it fine, the only time I was really hungry was on day 4. I will weigh myself at the end of the 7 days and write back here to let everyone know!

    But overall it's not been a bad experience and the hunger pangs seem to be at bay, plus I have been exercising every morning after breakfast and I certainly hope I have lost a few pounds!

  12. hi Denise just letting you know I lost 11 lb when I did this 3 weeks ago I found it on another site .. I did ok I think but id like to ask .. one thing I cannot eat is lamb .. so I left it out and was hungry that day I drank water can I replace or should I just leave out .. this is me starting today my new week as that's three weeks ago I finished .
    what I have been doing in between is no sugar fruit for breakfast .. salad or eggs for lunch and fish or meat and greens at tea time I am now 1and a half stone lighter in a month 1 was 17 stone and am now 15.and a half .. I drank 4 cans of pepsi a day and ate rubbish I swim half a mile 3 times a week that's all I do .. feel good and alive xxx thanks for sharing xxx

    1. Wow... that is amazing to hear. If you don't like lamb just leave it out or you can do the same day twice (for instance do Tuesday twice), as long as you eat what is on the menu for that day you still lose weight. Thank you for your comment too. It's nice to hear things like this...

  13. Where does it say you can't have grapes?? I'm on day 3 and my fruit salads have included them ��

    1. You should eat grapes where it says eat fruit on the meal plan above. You shouldn't put them in salad as it may stop your weight loss.

  14. HI Denise

    I started the diet on Monday and have just seen your comment about what the salad can contain. I went rather overboard last night and included: lettuce, toms, cucumber, celery, spring onion, radish, beetroot, raw mushrooms and some beans/pulses. Oh dear! I think this may affect my overall weight loss?

    1. Hopefully it will not ruin too much weight loss for you. Just get back on track and stick to the food plan as it is above.

  15. Hi Denise Thanks for that. I also meant to ask - I can't stomach black tea or coffee, but need to have hot drinks during the day. I've started on fruit teas - are these acceptable? :)

    1. Any herbal teas should be ok. I always drink Oolong tea which works well with this diet.

    3. Thanks Denise

      Have just finished my week on the diet and 'only' lost 6lbs. I shouldn't be too disappointed as it's a cracking weight loss in a week. Next time I do it, I will stick to just lettuce, cucumber, toms and celery for the salad part. Not sure what went wrong as apart from this I stuck to it rigidly. Would drinking carbonated water have made a difference?

      Delete
    4. Yes you must only stick to tomatoes, cucumber, celery and lettuce when eating salad. If you added something more to the diet then this could be the reason why you have only lost 6lbs. It states on the Chemical Diet's article (see link above) you are allowed to drink black coffee, tea without milk (including herbal tea), water and tonic or soda waters, but I would just drink ordinary water just in case. Hope this helps.

  16. Hi just found your post, I started this diet on Saturday at 11st 12lb. I have eaten a few things i shouldnt like spring onions in my salad and I have also been putting milk in my first coffee. I will weigh myself on Friday and see how I did.

    1. This diet is supposed to be used with eggs, but if you don't like them then just leave them out and give the diet a go. I am not sure if the Chemical Diet will work without them, but you can try it out without eggs and see what happens. Let me know how you get on. Thanks for your comment.

  20. Hi Denise, I'm on my first day and so far so good! I struggle to eat eggs hard boiled, if I scramble the egg without adding anything to it (i.e milk) will this affect the results?

  21. Hi Denise, it's my first day on the diet and going good so far! Not as hungry as I thought I would be although I am struggling eating hard boiled eggs, am I able to scramble the eggs without adding anything else to it? Will it affect the results of the diet?

    Thanks!

    1. You can have scrambled eggs but you can't use oil in the pan, because that will ruin your chances of losing weight. Why not microwave the eggs. I've done this lots of times and it works. Just don't add anything to the eggs. Good luck.

  22. Hi as I take statins grapefruit is not allowed as it affects with statins,instead can I have oranges please

    1. Hi thanks for your comment. I am on statins too. I ate grapefruit sometimes, but I didn't have it all the time as it's listed above and I was okay (I did not replace it with oranges). If you don't want to have it, then try having oranges, but generally oranges are not allowed for this particular diet, and it does state that you should not replace any of the food listed above. I hope this helps. Please let us know if you lose weight doing the Chemical Diet by replacing the grapefruit with oranges.

  23. Hi just wondering if you can drink as much grapefruit juice as you like or is it limited. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can only have grapefruit juice where it states it on the food plan above... that grapefruit is allowed. If you prefer grapefruit juice to actually eating a grapefruit, then just do that instead and replace it with juice. You cannot have grapefruit juice all the time and whenever you want as it may reduce your weight loss goals, but it's up to you if you want to try it and see what happens.

    1. This is something I am not sure about, but try it and see what happens. If you see that you are not losing weight, then stop having gum. To be honest, I think it will ruin your chances of losing weight if you chew a lot of gum throughout the day, even if it is sugar free, but I have not tried this out myself so I can't say for sure. Good luck and please let us know how you get on.

  29. Back again on this diet after a while..On day three now! yaay! i messed up a little last night and ahd two eggs instead of lamb..hopefully it will not mess up too much =/ .. just one question. You mention you can repeat days.. would you say there is a limit to how many times a week you do this.. I ask because i really cannot stomach red meat! I'm just worried because then I'd be eating a lot of fruits as the days i'd have to repeat all have fruit for lunch.. thanks so much for all the help and replies and good luck to all!!

  31. So glad to find people currently doing this diet! I found it on another site, but have had many questions...
    What does a salad entail? The first day u did just greens and eggs with vinegar, not bsd, but boring. Is there some hard and fast guideline about adding more veggies to the salad? And how much grilled steak or chicken or fish for dinner? Seems like amounts should matter. Is there somewhere I can read more about the science behind this diet?

    I'm on day 5- down 6.5 pounds so far. Im doing a diet bet and need to drop 4.5 more in 5 days! Hope it all shakes out!

  33. Hello I think i will start this from Monday.

    Can i do this diet for longer? I have 2 stones to lose to feel more comfortable, so i would like to do this for 14days straight? Is that possible and are there any negative side effects?

    Also, can i exercise? Or will this make me put on weight?

    Thanks in advance x

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Chemical Diet is not recommended to do for 14 days straight. It's best just to do 7 days and then have a break and start again. Of course, it's up to you. Not sure doing it for 14 days straight will help you lose 2 stone though. If you do try it let us know the outcome. Good luck!

    1. The best fruit is either apples, pears, tangerines/satsumas, oranges and bananas but only have one banana in a day and do not eat grapes.

    2. Hi Denise. I have been following this blog right from the start and I think you mentioned somewhere that one can have grapes where it says fruit. Is this any different now? I am on day 2 and was going to add grapes to my fruit for lunch. Is one allowed avocado with the fruit?

      Delete
    3. I did have a handful of black grapes once with other fruit and I still lost weight at the end of the week. Just don't eat too many of them or if you can do without them then the weight loss will be significant. To be honest, I am not sure, but try having it and see it what happens. Fruit can consist of bananas, oranges, satsumas, apples, pears, a small handful of grapes (7 black grapes at the most) and strawberries (again only have 4 strawberries). Good luck.
