The Sacred Heart Medical Diet focuses on a special soup and a specific list of foods to eat for 7 days. It is essentially a 7-day plan. During the diet, you are allowed to eat as much of the special soup as you want because it is a low-calorie soup.
On the Sacred Heart Diet, people should be able to lose 10-17 lbs. if the diet is followed exactly as it is laid out. After day 3, you should have lost 5-7 lbs. You can lose a lot of weight in just 7 days on this diet, but it is not a lifestyle change. If you choose to repeat the diet, you should not do so right after you finish the first 7 days.
