3 Day Diet

The 3 Day Diet is essentially a meal plan for 3 days. The claim that you can lose 10 pounds in 3 days, is inaccurate because we are all different, and have different caloric requirements.

Simply put - if you can't imagine yourself still eating like this in say, a years time, then it's not a sustainable diet. Judging by the meal plan, the 3 day diet is a low calorie diet, but retains a reasonable balance of fats, carbs, and proteins.

This is one of the most popular fads around and despite the warnings people still want a quick fix instead of doing the work it takes to achieve long term results.

Downsides?

  • Be Careful Not To Lower Metabolism
    Stay on the diet for 3 days. Beyond this your body will go into starvation mode, and begin to adapt its metabolism. This of course, can mark the beginning of yo-yo dieting.

  • Due to the low calories, you will feel hungry often.
    Dieters will probably end up reaching for the junk food as they will feel deprived.

  • The lack of any snack will also lead to up and down energy levels.
  • Long term results are not typical.
