You want to lose weight.
You know the foods you’re eating are unhealthy, but going cold turkey and switching to a healthy diet overnight is just too overwhelming.
This 7 Day Challenge Diet is your solution.
In the next 7 days, you’ll detox on real foods as you transform your junk food diet into a healthy, fat-burning diet.
The secret is Add before you Subtract.
Editorial Note: This Clean Eating challenge is not focused on lowering carbs, but rather on getting junk foods out of your diet. You’ll learn how to replace them with nutrient-dense “superfoods.” This 7-day plan is not aimed at reducing weight. Instead, it will benefit you if you’ve had trouble transitioning to a healthy diet or need to hone your eating to reduce inflammation in your body. If you are interested in low-carb dieting, you’ll find low carb diet blog posts here.
You’ll learn exactly how to follow the 7 Day Junk Foods to Super Foods Challenge Diet below.

TYPICAL JUNK FOOD DIET:
The typical junk food diet contains up to 60% processed foods along with a whole host of sugary and refined foods.
Consuming refined and processed foods have been linked to autoimmune diseases, obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
These diseases were not as common before processed foods became so widely distributed and they are still not present in areas of the world that cook and eat unprocessed foods.
A Super Foods Diet consists of fruits, vegetables, and beans along with some whole grains, poultry, fish, nuts and seeds.
When you start eating superfoods you discover a new level of health and much easier weight loss at any age.
The more superfoods you eat, the more weight you lose.
A clean diet has you consume high levels of vitamins and minerals, which switch off hunger and protects you against heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers such as breast, prostate, and colon cancer.
You may also overcome ailments that were once thought to be something you had to live with for the rest of your life, such as fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, autoimmune disorders, and depression.
After one week on this 7-day challenge diet, you’ll have noticeably more energy, better sleep, and great mental clarity.
Best of all, weight loss is the side effect that comes from eating superfoods.
This seven-day diet plan is a no-brainer for weight loss because you’re consuming naturally low-calorie superfoods and eliminating high-calorie processed foods.
Why The 7 Day Challenge Diet Will Work For You
Too often people are discouraged when they try to switch to a healthy diet because they try to change everything overnight.
They feel tired and overwhelmed and end up wondering why anyone would want to punish themselves like this.
This 7-day food challenge lets you ease into healthy eating gradually. In fact, for the first two days, you actually add nutrient-dense foods to your diet, with no need to eliminate any favorite food.
You’ll quickly see that the 7-day challenge diet is different. If you’ve struggled in the past to change your eating habits, then you haven’t tapped into the secret of adding high-nutrient foods first.
By the end of this challenge, you’ll see that eating healthy for weight loss can work in your life, regardless of how busy you are or how many times you have failed in the past.
Here’s How To Follow The 7 Day Challenge Diet:
Think ADD before SUBTRACT.
On days 1 through 4, your only task is to add superfoods to your daily diet.
In the first part of the week, you don’t worry about removing any unhealthy foods. This gradual shift eases diet anxiety and fills you up, so you don’t have room for all the junk.

7 Day Challenge Diet: Days 1 – 4 Eating Plan
DAY 2: Add 3 pieces (servings) of fruit to your typical diet.
DAY 3: Add 1 cup of beans to your typical diet
DAY 4: Add up to 3 Tbsp. of raw nuts/seeds/dried fruit to your typical diet.
7 Day Challenge Diet: Days 5 – 7 Eating Plan
DAY 5: Subtract refined carbs and sugars (i.e. avoid white foods). Limit whole grains and starchy vegetables to 1 cup (combined total).
DAY 6: Subtract red meat.
DAY 7: Subtract dairy products.
7 Day Challenge Extras
Throughout the week you may add oil, butter and/or salad dressing in moderation.
You may also have water, coffee, and unsweetened tea throughout the week without limitation. You can drink diet soda in moderation but avoid juice and alcohol.
I recommend starting on a Friday to give yourself the most freedom on the weekend.
I also recommend that you weigh yourself on the first day of the challenge and the day after the 7 Day Junk Foods to Super Foods Challenge.
If you weigh yourself during the week you will find yourself making eating decisions based on your weight, not on your natural hunger.
