The 5 Day Miracle Diet is a diet based on consuming reduced calories 5 days of each week and moderate calories on 2 days of each week.
Most people choose to practice the 5 day diet Monday through Friday and take Saturday and Sunday off.
This type of diet can be successful for those that don’t do well on overly restrictive diets and who still want to enjoy occasional treats and going out to eat on the weekends.
The 3 Day Diet and The 7 Day Diet are other options and there’s also a specific 5 Day Blood Sugar Diet available.
The guidelines of the 5 day diet are pretty simple, but basically revolve around a few must follow rules.
During the weekends there are no forbidden foods and calories can be increased, but, within reason. Dieters shouldn’t exceed their weight maintenance calorie levels.
Dieters should enjoy their favorite foods on the weekends BUT still practice portion control as well as discretion when eating out.
One of the benefits of the 5 day diet is that it keeps your metabolism guessing, which is believed to prevent plateaus and prevent your body from going into starvation mode.
By increasing your calories 2 days a week, your body doesn’t adapt to the reduced number of calories consumed 5 days a week.
Oatmeal, fresh fruit, green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, lentils, black beans, broccoli, carrots, chicken breast, fish, low-fat greek yogurt, brown rice, lean beef, olive oil, eggs, mushrooms, bell peppers, hummus, nuts
Steel cut oatmeal with blueberries, walnuts, and greek yogurt
Salad with chicken
Handful of almonds
Beef stir fry with brown rice
The 5 Day Miracle Diet recommends moderate exercise 5 days a week. Walking, biking, strength training, weight training, jogging, and swimming are all great ways to burn calories and get fit.
Just be sure the exercise doesn’t put you below your minimum calorie amounts for each of the 5 days.
The 5 Day Miracle Diet program is not actually a five-day diet but rather five days is the amount of time it takes in order to stabilize your blood sugar.
Puhn explains in detail exactly what foods you should be eating and at what times. The diet involves three main meals as well as three or four small snacks daily.
There are strict rules regarding the timing of meals.
All of the rules of the Blood Sugar Regulating Diet must be followed exactly otherwise you will need to start the program from the beginning. Once you have stabilized on the plan occasional indulges are permitted.
The 5-Day Miracle Diet retails at $17.45.
I was on this wonderful program 2012-2015. Did well for me. I was able to fit into 14-16 after 25 plus yrs. here is all the benefits I experienced: woke up every morning 9 am no later unless I wanted and no earlier than 7, memory was coming back slowly, my speech and concentration was getting better, I felt good about myself, I could walk for miles to workout and not get tired, go to bed at 12 or 1 am and still pop up like toast at 8 or 9. My hair was growing and I was happy happy. 2015 I got pregnant again and I was craving many things, I sleptes a lot cause I was always sleepy! Gained over 40 lbs and now I’m still trying to get back on track after losing my pregnancy due to eating to much crab, and shrimp which I craved every week and I got it too. Then I would bleed real bad black blood and chunks would fall out. Well you know what happened. My pregnancy was self terminated. Cravings went away, breast swelling and tenderness disappeared, cramps left and I stopped bleeding in 4 days. Now I want to take off the weight and go back to 180. Plan to get pregnant again soon and my hips already out enough! I will get Mommies hips again. I a good and health pregnancies!!!!
The program works that for sure.
