Jillan Michaels: The 7-Day Diet

The 7-Day Diet – Jillian Michaels

The following diet regimen applies to all oxidizer types. It is not about optimal fat burning or muscle growth—it’s about shedding water and getting ripped up for that jaw-dropping effect we all need from time to time. You can switch any of the meals on this list around at any time during the week; if you like the lunch from Day 3 but not the one on Day 4, any of the meals on the diet are acceptable at any time.

As for calories, we are going to hit the absolute bottom, as far as we healthily can, to crash out that last bit of weight. Therefore for this week and this week only, you will abandon the calorie allowance you calculated for yourself at the outset of the program and follow the exact portions I’ve laid out for you here instead.

During this week you can use all the sodium-free seasonings mentioned on page 30. Do not use real salt at all this week—not even a little. (Come on, we have gotten this far—suck it up, and let’s finish this with a bang!)

One last caveat: Do not do this diet for longer than seven days. If you do, you will risk slowing your metabolism and losing muscle mass. This diet is effective for seven days and seven days only.

The diet plan outlined for you in The Routine (see page 34) is the most effective for gaining muscle and shedding fat. This is just about temporarily losing water weight to peak your physique!
