Why You Should’nt Try the 3 Day Diet

The 3 Day Diet Plan, Reviewed!

Hello my name is William Messruther and I am a dieting consultant. I have been specialising in this field for around 6 years now and I focus my studies on fad diets, wether they work and the effects they can have on your body. For the next few weeks I will be writing articles for as many different fad diets as I can find myself. Here is my first installment, talking about the 3 day diet plan.

The 3 day diet seems to be one of the most popular short-term fad diets these days. It offers fast weight loss of about 10lbs within the 3 days, and is based on a low carb diet and a calorie intake of around 1000c per day. The diet promises fast weight loss, lower cholesterol, cleansing and increased energy, however there is no real proof available of these said ‘facts’. This is probably why it appeals to so many people! Unfortunately, this weight loss is due to an immediate drop in calorie intake, some of which is fat and most of it is water loss. Due to this i’m sorry to say that most people put this weight back on soon after!

The diet is rather strict in what you can eat and drink and you must stick to it precisely and portions must be adhered to to get the results. The combination of the select foods apparently creates a metabolic reaction which boosts fat burning, however there is no documentation to back this up! The diet is supplemented with a strict 3 day eating plan and in addition dieters must drink 4 cups of water or zero-calorie drinks, an example of this is, for one day;
 black coffee or tea with 1or2 sachets of sweet&low or equivalent
 1/2 a grapefruit or juice
 1 piece of toast with light spreading of peanut butter

 black coffee or tea with 1or2 sachets of sweet&low or equivalent
 1/2 a cup of tuna
 1 piece of toast

 3ounce of lean meat or chicken
 1 cup of green beans and 1 cup of carrots
 1 apple
 1 cup of regular ice cream

This doesn’t seem so bad I hear you saying, so now i’ll tell you how wrong you actually are! With such a low calorie and nutrient intake you will feel hungry all the time making this diet hard to stick too. On top of that you will feel tired and depressed. The biggest danger this diet imposes is that you do the 3 day dieting then go back to eating normally, while cutting out junk food, then back on the 3 day diet and so on. This causes a side effect called “Y0-y0” weight loss meaning you are constantly up and down in weight and harming your metabolism. This ultimately makes it harder in the long run to lose weight and keep it off. Oh, and one other thing, expect to have bad wind a LOT while on this diet – you may want to keep those office windows open!!

So there you have it. My verdict is that I seriously do not recommend this diet because of the side effects it poses. This is a fast weight loss solution, not a healthy weight loss solution, and even worse, not a long term option!
