3 Day Diet -- Make Believe Diet Plans
The 3 day diet mixes certain types of foods that supposedly react in a specific way to increase your metabolic rate. Apparently, you'll burn fat at a higher rate than usual, but be careful and don't abuse the power of the diet's reaction.
This reaction is so powerful that the 3 day diet can only last 3 days, beyond which the author can't be held responsible for what might happen to you. The power of this reaction must be respected and should be followed by taking four to five days off.
When on the diet, you must follow the proportions exactly as stated by the author. If you don't follow the exact proportions, you will spontaneously combust and miss out on your new, thin body.
The 3 Day Diet Menu
Breakfast on the first day begins with coffee (no sugar), one half a grapefruit, and a piece of toast with 1 Tbsp peanut butter.
For lunch, you are allowed a can of tuna, a piece of toast, and black coffee.
Dinner consists of 3 ounces of chicken or lean meat, a cup of green beans, one cup of carrots, one apple, and one cup of regular vanilla ice cream.
The other two days of the diet are exactly the same as the first day, even though the menus are different. One specific change is recommended on Day 2. Eat two beef franks for dinner in place of three ounces of lean meat. The science supporting this change is apparently a very big secret and the author refuses to reveal it.
The 3 day diet claims that you can lose 10 pounds in 3 days. Whether or not you actually lose 10 pounds is not important, how could it be? The 3 day diet doesn't exist. It's all make believe! Is there any other conclusion to make?
Make A Better Decision
The 3 day diet is a bad fad. The powerful reaction, caused by certain food combinations, is exploitation at its best. Who wouldn't be tempted to buy a new weight loss product proven to dramatically reduce your weight and improve your health?
Can the 3 day diet cause weight loss? Absolutely! Simple calorie restriction will take off the pounds. The 3 day diet is nothing more than severe calorie restriction over a very short period of time. Followers of the diet will soon start asking for refunds!
Severe calorie restriction causes Diet Shock , a state of energy conservation to protect against starvation. Your metabolism drops drastically followed by weight regain.
Another downside to the 3 day diet is the restriction on carbohydrates. Low carbohydrate diets primarily lose water weight. As soon as the dieter goes back to eating a normal diet and consuming a normal amount of carbohydrate, this water weight will be gained back.
The 3 day diet will cause you to gain weight, not lose it. Excellent information can be found in my Healthy Weight Loss Page. The URL is in the author bio section.
