7 day Chemical Diet

So recently I've heard about this new diet called the Chemical Diet. Apparently you're supposed to do it for 7 days and lose around 6 kilos (14 pounds). I go to the gym regularly and have manage to lose a lot of weight the healthy way, but I was thinking to try this diet to get rid of the last few kilos that don't seem to want to go away.

Have any of you tried it? Any thoughts? The food you're allowed to eat all seem pretty satisfying to me. Other than the grapefruit of course, which I would really struggle with... it's way too sour. I love that there is some sort of carb included, it makes it so much more doable for me.

This is the meal plan you're meant to follow exactly:

Day 1
Breakfast 1 slice dry toast and grilled tomatoes
Lunch Fresh fruit (any amount)
Dinner 2 hard boiled eggs, salad, grapefruit

Day 2
Breakfast Grapefruit, 1 boiled egg
Lunch Roast chicken (any amount) & tomatoes
Dinner Grilled steak and salad

Day 3
Breakfast grapefruit, 1 boiled egg
Lunch 2 boiled eggs and tomatoes
Dinner Grilled lamb chops, celery and cucumber

Day 4
Breakfast 2 slices dry toast, 2 poached eggs
Lunch fresh fruit (any amount)
Dinner 2 hard boiled eggs, salad, grapefruit

Day 5
Breakfast 1 slice dry toast, 2 poached eggs
Lunch 2 poached eggs & tomatoes
Dinner Fresh or tinned fish and salad

Day 6
Breakfast 1 boiled egg, 1 glass grapefruit juice
Lunch Fresh fruit (any amount)
Dinner Roast chicken, cabbage, carrots

Day 7
Breakfast 2 scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes
Lunch 2 Poached eggs and spinach
Dinner Grilled Steak and salad.

Some side notes about the diet are that you cannot eat anything that is not mentioned above, you can't substitute any of the food. You can't eat between meals, drink alcohol or have butter milk or fat. You are also not supposed to do this diet for more than 7 days at a time.

In terms of drinks you can have: black tea, black coffee, lemon tea, grapefruit juice, tonic, soda or water only.

When it says salad, it means: lettuce, cucumber, tomato and celery only.

Let me know if you've tried it and how it went for you, I'd love to hear some opinions before doing it myself.
