Vegetables: a key feature of the 5 Day Miracle Diet. (Photo credit: Hrushi3030, via Wikipedia)

So I finished the 5 Day Miracle Diet, for the second time in my life, and what can I say?! I hated the food, but the weight loss (7.6lbs) was fantastic! This would be a great diet for someone who has a week to lose weight for a special occasion. I’m very pleased with it.

I won’t be carrying on with it, although apparently the actor Ralph Fiennes followed this diet to keep his energy up for playing Hamlet, so some people do keep this up in the long term. Find out more about the 5 Day Miracle Diet at Adele Puhn’s website.

Starting weight: 216.8lbs
Ending weight: 209.2lbs

Read on to see how it went, in case anyone would like to use my 5 Day Miracle Diet food diary as an example:

The 5 Day Miracle Diet vs Alien

This week’s diet choice is inspired by ‘Alien’, and it’s Adele Puhn’s 5 Day Miracle Diet. Five days of the Miracle Diet, five Alien movies: Coincidence? Hardly!

Alien: Got that ‘hangry’ look if you ask me

Firstly, I think the horrible, parasitic Alien is a fantastic metaphor for the cravings that take root inside us and can lead us so far astray, perhaps sliding down from the ceiling behind us when we’re trying to concentrate on our instrument panels…

And secondly, one of the main features of this diet is the frequent ‘hard chew’ snacks, and when I think of Alien, the first thing I remember is that extra set of teeth that come out of its mouth. Ugh! Mini carrots would be no match for it.

I’d love it if this diet was good for heartburn too, with all that acid in the aliens’ blood, and it might be, but sadly if it is the book doesn’t mention it.
