This is a diet plan that someone I know used and they thought it was great. When they laid it out for me I pretty much wrote it off as a “crash” diet where you basically starve yourself . I’m sure you will lose the weight because there are hardly any calories consumed. But after the week is up how are you going to feel? Starved? Most likely.

Here is the 7 day rice diet plan which they say will help you to lose pounds quickly.

According to what I was told this diet should be used for a minimum of 3 days and maximum of 2 weeks. Beginning from day 3 you will lose 1.5 pounds a day.

In this diet it is recommended to use unclean brown rice for all dishes.

Day 1:

Breakfast: an apple, rice (80 g of dry grains) mixed with one tablespoon of lemon juice. Green herbal tea without sugar.

Lunch: vegetable soup, vegetable 150 g of salad made of different vegetables except tomatoes , 80 g of boiled rice mixed with one teaspoon of vegetable or olive oil.

Dinner: vegetable broth, 80 g of boiled rice with 2 big carrots.

Day 2:

Breakfast: an orange, 80 g of boiled rice mixed with one teaspoon of low-fat sour cream .

Lunch: vegetable broth with boiled vegetables and 80 g of rice.

Dinner: repeat lunch of day 2.

Day 3:

Breakfast: a pear and 80 g of boiled rice.

Lunch: vegetable broth, salad made of cucumbers mixed with one teaspoon of vegetable oil, 80 g of rice with mushrooms fried on olive oil.

Dinner: vegetable broth, 80 g of boiled rice with white cabbage.

Day 4:

Breakfast: fruit salad with 2 tablespoons of rice flakes, 80 g of rice mixed with low-fat milk or cream.

Lunch: vegetable broth, 80 g of boiled rice with radish and carrots.

Dinner: vegetable broth, 80 g of rice mixed with 2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds.

Day 5:

Breakfast: 80 g of boiled rice with grapes.

Lunch: vegetable soup, 150 g of vegetable salad made of different vegetables except tomatoes , 80 g of boiled rice mixed with one teaspoon of vegetable or olive oil.

Dinner: vegetable broth, 80 g of boiled rice with 2 oranges.

Day 6:

Breakfast: 80 g of rice with 2 dates, 4 walnuts and 1 pear.

Lunch: a vegetable broth, salad made of cucumbers mixed with one teaspoon of vegetable oil, 80 g of rice with mushrooms fried on olive oil.

Dinner: a vegetable broth, 80 g of boiled rice with 1-2 apples, a cup of tea with one teaspoon of honey.

Day 7:

Breakfast: 80 g of boiled rice with an apple and a pear,1 glass of fat-free organic yogurt, a cup of tea without sugar.

Lunch: vegetable broth, a portion of green salad, 80 g of boiled rice with 1 tomato and green string beans.

Dinner: vegetable broth, 80 g of boiled rice with 2 big carrots.

The dinner should be no later than 7 p.m. and it is also recommended to drink a big glass of water before each meal. Try not to consume any liquids during 1.5 – 2 hours after each meal.

 

That’s it. What do you think? Like I said, it’s just a crash diet to me. I don’t like deprivation of food personally. I would be afraid of loosing too much muscle But If you wanna lose weight quickly this could really work.

  1. I would consider this rice ‘diet’ as an act of negligence by anyone prescribing it as a weight loss plan. This is a diet that will guarantee to spike your insulin levels and make you skinny fat….until a week after you stop it, then you just get fat.
    Lean proteins and lots veggies, metabolic training combined with meditation for stress control. That is how you lose weight in a healthy and safe manner.
    I truly have a wish that someday people will wake up and finally realize that crash diets are a losing proposition. No magic pills or shakes will ever get you lean and strong. You have to WORK. And the results are rewarding for both your body and mind.

  2. I completely agree with lifereachfitness, meat is essential to any diet- even more so if you want to lose weight! It uses more energy during digestion than other food whilst helping build muscle. Following this diet risks putting your body into starvation mode where your body stores any form of energy it can find because it thinks a famine is setting in, meaning you’ll gain all that you lost and more as soon as you start eating again.
    If you want to lose weight figure out how many calories your body needs as this differs from one person to the next and stick to that, exercise, drink lots and eat a little of everything. No cutting out food groups.

    And it is always better to drink away from meals!

    • Well put! Our bodies use 20 to 30 percent of the caloric value of proteins just to process and digest them. And we always advise our members to consume fluids away from meals as the liquids dilute digestive acids which aid in processing meals and allow the nutrients to be utilized and absorbed.

      • Considering most healthy meals (should) contain lots of veggies, which are high water content foods, you shouldn’t “have to” drink for at least an hour or so past a meal. Less if lean proteins were NOT the focus of the plate (a high protein diet requires extra fluid consumption). If a meal was protein heavy, I usually recommend avoiding excess liquids for about 90 minutes since the digestive acids need to work strongly to process animal protein.

        This doesn’t mean NO water, just sipping if you are thirsty. But remember, thirst is a late indicator of dehydration. Drink plenty of water in between meal times and you should have no issues.

        Keep up your great posts!
