Loosing weight the 1950's way !

Arnt these 1950's diet add's totally hilarious !! Imagine if they were used today !!! Funny !!! We all know that 'slimming tablets' (aka laxatives) and hunger suppressants are not the way to go to have a figure and stay healthy.....we all know it's a lifestyle thing - eat healthy, excersise, get plenty of sleep, drink lots of know the drill ! Hubby and I adore great food, and to keep ourselves at 'our best' we prefer to use the following 'diet' to 'cleanse our system' every two months or so.... I just thought I would share it with you. (It is used in the cardiac wards to help patients reduce their weight quickly in preparation for opperations etc.......a 'healthier' alturnative to laxatives !)
Cardiac Unit Recipe for Fast Weight Loss

Basic fat burning soup:

Ingredients –2 large cans crushed tomatoes
2 large cans Campbells Beef Consume or 2 beef stock cubes
1 Dessert Spoon Continental Vegetable dry soup power
1 Bunch of spring onions
Half a bunch of celery
2 Cans green French beans or 2 Cans of sliced beans
1 Green capsicum
Half to 1kg of carrots

Instructions – Chop all vegies into small pieces. Combine all ingredients, add salt and pepper, stir well. Boil rapidly for 10 minutes, then simmer until vegies are tender. Add water if necessary or to make a thinner soup.

Notes – This soup can be eaten any time you are hungry. Eat as much as you want whenever you want. This soup will not add calories, the more you eat the more you will loose. It is a nutritious diet. For drinks – unsweetened juices, tea, coffee, cranberry juice and water. Drink plenty of water.

Day One

Eat any fruit except bananas. Cantaloupe and water melon are lower in calories than most other fruits. East soup anytime (as much as you want)

Day Two

Eat only vegetables. Eat as much as you like of fresh, raw or canned vegies. Try to eat green leafy veies. Stay away from dry beans, peas and corn. Eat vegies along with soup anytime you like. At dinner time, reward yourself with a jacket potato and butter. DON’T EAT ANY FRUIT TODAY

Day Three

Eat all the soup, fruit and vegies you want today. Do not have a jacket potato. If you have eaten as above for the 3 days you should have lost between 2-3kg.

Day Four

Eat soup, bananas and skim milk today. Eat at least 3 large bananas, drink as much milk as you can, and eat all the soup you want. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates as is the milk, but you need the potassium and carbs today.

Day Five

East as much soup as you like, as well as 250-500g of beef or chicken (no skin) and up to 6 tomatoes. Eat soup at least once today.

Day Six

Eat to your hearts content of beef and vegies today – you can even have 2-3 grilled steaks if you like with green leafy vegies. No baked potato. Be sure to eat soup at least once today.

Day Seven

Eat as much soup as you can, as well as brown rice, vegies and fruit juice.

By the end of this 7 day program, you should have lost at least 5 kg, if you have stuck strictly to the diet. Time to purchase a brand new wardrobe !
