In addition to the above you should drink 6 to 8 glasses of water each day.

All meat should be baked of grilled- not fried. Consider steaming your vegetables.

No bread, alcohol,or carbonated beverages are allowed-not even diet pop. Coffee or tea should be decaf and only artificial sweetener should be used.

Do not stay on this diet more than 7 days. Always check with your doctor before beginning any diet program.

I changed some of the ingredients in the soup and also used a seven bone chuck steak. I refridgerated the soup and then took the solid grease off the top. Also had removed all visable fat.
