  • corrie

  • corrie


  • Gareth H

    I did not do any exercise along with this diet as I did not feel I had the energy to do so

  • Gareth H

    I put back on a few pounds but I put that down to coming straight off the diet into a busy weekend of eating out every night as well as drinking most nights

  • Slimming Solutions

    Hi Nikita,

    You can substitute this for Quorn if you wish however we wouldn’t advise you season with salt as this does have a tendency to slow metabolism down.

  • Slimming Solutions

    Hi Corrie,

    Swapping steak for Quorn is fine as well as swapping the days around if you wish.

  • Slimming Solutions

    Thank you for sharing your result with us Gareth : ) well done.

  • nikita

    hi, i don’t eat steak..what can i substitute this for? also, can i add seasoning (salt and pepper) to my meat

  • corrie

    hi, am I ok doing this diet Monday to Friday until I get to the weight I want, also I have seen comments that you can swop the steak for quorn ? steak is the only thing I don’t like, also I have asked before about swopping the days around as long as I stick to what is on that day, thanks

  • corrie

    can I ask did you keep the weight off after doing it ?

  • Maziu

    Hi, How effective was this diet for you ? Also what exercise did you do alongside this?

  • Gareth H

    So after the second time of doing this diet this year I lost another 14 lbs in the seven days. Using this as my starting point for a slower process of loosing weight but I am very happy with my results!

    For all those people who are asking about swapping this and you do not like that, I would suggest if you cannot stick to the diet above then do not bother trying it

  • Slimming Solutions

    Yes Annie : )

  • Slimming Solutions

  • Slimming Solutions

    Hi Velda,

    You can substitute the meat for a meat alternative such as Quorn if you wish.

  • Slimming Solutions

    If you cannot stomach the celery we would advise that you leave it out Aisha.

  • Leona

    I don’t like celery, cucumber or lamb can I substitute these or no?
