The 3 Day Diet — Are you better off fat?

Elvis Elvis

 

The Basic Jist
The 3 Day Diet is “special combination of foods” which you only eat for three days. Basically, it’s a very low calorie crash diet.

 

Diet Type
restricted foods; low calorie

 

Tell Me More!
Though some sites claim that there is a special combination of foods that you are eating, really this is a very low calorie diet with a lot of coffee (which acts as a diuretic). You will lose only water weight, if anything at all.

 

To do the 3 Day Diet, follow the instructions below:

 

Day One
Breakfast:black coffee, tea, or water; 1/2 grapefruit or juice; 1 slice toast with 1T of peanut butter
Lunch: 1/2 cup tuna; 1 slice toast; black coffee, tea, or water
Dinner: 3oz. any lean meat; 1 cup green beans; 1 cup carrots; 1 cup vanilla ice cream; black coffee, tea, or water

 

Day Two
Breakfast: Black coffee, tea, or water; 1 egg (any style); 1 slice toast; 1 banana
Lunch: 1 cup cottage cheese or tuna; 5 saltine crackers; black coffee, tea or water
Dinner: 2 beef franks or hot dogs; 1/2 cup carrots; 1 banana; 1 cup broccoli or cabbage; 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream; black coffee, tea, or water

 

Day Three
Breakfast: black coffee, tea or water; 5 saltine crackers; 1 slice cheddar cheese; 1 apple
Lunch: 1 hard boiled egg; 1 slice toast; black coffee, tea, or water
Dinner: 1 cup tuna; 1 cup carrots; 1 cup cauliflower; 1 cup melon; 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream; black coffee, tea, or water.

 

Note: You are allowed to use fake sugar with your coffee. You are also allowed to use lemon, salt and pepper, mustard, and cooking spray in your food preparations.

The 3 Day Diet    Are you better off fat? 

 

 

 

The Good Stuff

 

  • It’s only three days.
  • You can eat ice cream.

 

The Bad Stuff

 

  • You’re hardly eating anything at all and will be hungry most of the time.
  • Weight loss is likely water weight which will be regained soon after.
  • Very low calorie diets can mess with your metabolism.
  • There are not enough nutrients.

 

Are You Better Off Fat?
YES! The 3 Day Diet is horribly low calorie and bad for you. This is the type of diet that people who experience a “yoyo” effect get sucked in by. The weight you lose will not be permanent and you will end up feeling disappointed when you regain it. Even the foods that you are eating aren’t exactly the most healthy choices…

 

You will be very hungry the entire time because you are eating so little food. Probably the one thing that will keep you going is that little bit of ice cream that you are “allowed” for dinner. However, we all (should) know that it’s bad to reward good dieting behavior with an unhealthy snack.
