Jason Vale, a UK health and lifestyle coach, created the 7 Lbs. in 7 Days Super Juice Diet. This quick weight loss plan is not the world’s first juice diet or fast. Celebrities such as Drew Barrymore and Jenifer Aniston have helped the Super Juice Diet gain momentum. Vale promotes his juicing program through his website and the book "7 Pounds in 7 Days Super Juice Diet". Consult your health care provider before you attempt to lose weight using this method.

Features

This is not a diet with meal plans and calorie targets; it is a cleansing program based on a juice fast. You will not consume any solid foods while on this diet. Vale's website claims that you can lose up to 7 lbs. in one week when you drink the juices that he provides in his plan. He also recommends that you engage in exercise to boost your weight loss.

Diet Plan

Vale's juice recipes mainly use common vegetables, fruit and herbs or spices. He also provides recipes for herbal teas that you prepare and consume to aid your digestion. Vale's 7-day recipe plan, published in the June 2006 "Daily Mail," guides you through his juice formulas that replace each of your meals and snacks during your cleansing fast.

Meals

Depending on the meal that you are replacing with juice, your recipe choices will vary. Each day of the program, you consume Vale’s “Super Juice” made with vegetables, fruit, spirulina and wheatgrass. Other fruit and vegetable blends with names like “Boost Juice," “Lemon-Ginger Zinger” and “Super Detox Juice” appear in your juice menu choices. With one exception, the juice recipes all feature apples, and some include yogurt, sprouts, wheatgrass or acidophilus bacteria.

Considerations

The calorie intake from juices is far less than you would have on a normal daily adult diet and possibly too low for any weight loss program. It might be possible to get a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals while you are on this program; however, the juice recipes fail to provide an adequate intake of protein, fiber and essential fatty acids. Safe weight loss helps you lose from 1 to 2 lbs. per week, according to Colorado State University Cooperative Extension. Even though you are only consuming liquids on this plan, most of the weight that you will lose is from water, not fat. Once you resume your normal calorie intake, the weight that you lost is likely to return.
