The 3 Day Diet – Review

Soooo, I tried this interesting 3 day diet and was quite pleased with it. Although its quite restricted and you will feel hungry the 1st day, it gets better on the 2nd day…and well, its only 3 days! If you stick to the meal plan EXACTLY, you are supposed to lose 1 kilo (2.2 lbs) per day on average. But if you are like me, and just can’t get with the program and end up cheating a bit, you will lose approx. 0.5 kilo (1 lbs) per day, which still isn’t too bad! I didn’t put the weight back on  after it, which was great 😀 What I also love about this diet is the ease of preparation of the food and the fact that it requires no “special” foods.

You can do it once as a quick fix before an occasion, or you can actually do it as part of a diet program, BUT you are not supposed to be on it for more than 3 days of each week. So 3 day diet, 4 days of any other diet, then back on to the 3 day diet and so on until you reach your goal. Due to the low calorie nature of this diet, exercise is not recommended and you can have unlimited water and/or diet sodas per day. Also, some substitutions are allowed on this diet, for example you can have toast instead of crackers and vice versa, you can have tuna instead of cheese, and some of the veggies can be substituted for similar veggies.

Heres the meal plan:

DAY 1
Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Black coffee or tea (Sweet & Low or Equal) or water
1/2 Grapefruit or Juice
1 slice toast with 1 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup of Tuna
1 slice toast

1 cup broccoli or cabbage
1/2 cup vanilla ice cream

DAY 3

    Portia used to do this when we were at Uni and it worked well for her but she was miserable for 3 days!

    You need to add a rating for how easy the woman is to live with whilst doing it. I give it 1 star out of 5

    I agree, it is a tough one! Not the toughest one I’ve been on, but definitely very challenging :S Thanks for your input, I will definitely add ratings to get differing perspectives on how difficult or easy it was for others :)
