West German Diet – Two Week Weight Loss Diet

The German diet (also known as West German diet) is just a diet, not a diet that you should have daily for a very long time. It is said that it was developed by German nutritionists and with it you should be able to lose 15 pounds in two weeks.

Probably the hardest thing about this diet is that you will feel a slight hunger from time to time, but it isn’t that big of a deal. The great thing is that even though you might feel a bit hungry from time to time, you’ll also feel more energized and refreshed.

Important! Consult your doctor before starting any kind of diet, especially if you have health problems.

Pros of the West German Diet:

A major advantage of this diet is that in most people it is quite effective and results in permanent weight loss. And if you switch to healthy daily diet with at least 30 minutes of exercise daily after finishing the German diet, you won’t have any problems with your weight.

Cons of the West German Diet:

The main disadvantage of the German diet is its duration and the occasional feeling of hunger that some people just can’t stand. Also the diet is quite strict and limited and it requires prior consultation with a specialist before you start it.

  1. I’m on day 7 today. It’s hard but I will soldier on

  2. I am on day 4 od week 2 but in this week (2) , i am gaining weight instead if loosing, i have followed the diet without cheating, but i have been eating less than week 1 because i get full fast,can i push this diet to another week (3)??

    • We’re not nutritionists or experts, but we definitely DON’T think that you should push the diet to 3 weeks. Wait at least 2-3 months before repeating this diet, in the meantime eat healthy and exercise regularly.
      Every person is different and diets don’t always work the same for everyone. If this diet doesn’t work for you, try another diet or consult a specialist that can suggest a diet that’s most suitable for you.
      Good luck on your weight loss journey!

  3. What can you drink throughout the diet ….as well as water?

      The diet already contains unsweetened coffee, tea and fruit juices, and for the rest of the day you can drink some water. But if you don’t want to drink plain water, try flavoring your water with fresh fruit or vegetables (just on’t add any sugar). Also, we think that unsweetened tea is also an option.
