No “miracle” diet based on the consumption of one or a restricted group of foods in a short period of time can provide health benefits.
The diet to lose weight that we will comment on next was a proposal created in 1988 by the staff of the Loma Linda hospital, in California (United States) for overweight patients.
It was a type of diet to be followed for only one week, based on the consumption of vegetables, meat, fruits and proper hydration.
Its main component was the ‘miracle soup’, whose recipe was designed to help morbidly obese patients lose weight, in a healthy but fast way, before undergoing surgery.
The weight loss diet and the ‘miracle’ soup
Over the years, the soup recipe became popular. Especially among those whose desire was to lose weight quickly. In total, the diet allowed you to lose up to 10 pounds, that is, about 4 and a half kilos.
