The 3 Day Diet




The 3 Day Diet was one of the first fad diets I attempted. I was attracted to it, because the diet states you will lose up to 10 pounds in 3 days, and as an impatient type I loved the idea of such fast weight loss!
The diet basically works because it is very low calorie, I went on this diet in the summer, as I have less of an appetite when the weather is very warm. My weight loss was approximately 5 pounds in three days.

Although much of this weight loss is water loss, you will feel and look slimmer, and if you follow the diet regularly, for example once every ten days, there is no reason the weight loss will not become permanant.


Before I started dieting I worked in a kitchen, which did not help matters.



The 3 Day Diet rules are as follows:

Drink a minimum of 4 glasses of water or diet beverage per day.

Any of the following may be used on the 3 day diet: salt, pepper, vinegar, lemon, herbs, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, mustard and ketchup.

If you have a lot of weight to lose, you can follow the diet for 3 days, have a break for 3 or 4 days, and resume the diet for another 3 days until you reach your desired weight.
