Can The Three Day Diet Hurt You ?

Aug 17, 2007
The three day diet might be great for you if you want to shed some pounds before an event, such as a school reunion, a wedding, a party, a recreational event, a career event, etc. But, is it really advisable?

This diet can help you shed a little weight before going to your special occassion, so you can look and feel your best on the event day. It can in some cases have you feeling good and energized, especially if you have lost most, or even all, of the weight you wanted to. Unfortunately, this weight loss program is only good for temporary weight loss. It is short, easy and manageable just before those special events you want to look your best for.

This unusual eating plan is actually a free dieting program from the Cleveland's Three Day Clinic, which is associated with the American Heart Association. And, yes, it is especially good for your heart.

You can find menus for the three day diet that you will need to follow on various websites that offer the free menu plans. Beware, though, because some websites do have their own twist on the the plan. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but if you want to keep it real and original you might want to look up the Cleveland's Three Day Clinic, which may have the original menu diet plan available for you. You can also check on each website you look at to see if it says somewhere that this menu diet plan has not been changed or altered.

What It Consists of :

The menu has a lot of healthy foods and drinks for you. All of these foods and beverages on the will have a lot of Omega three essential fatty acids, which have been proven to help lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, some cancers, and can even prevent, or slow down, the effects of Alzheimer's Disease.

There are three meals indicated for each day of around 600 calories total per day (not much at all). The foods that you eat include: hot dogs, vanilla ice cream, cabbage, and eggs. The foods chosen for the diet are intended to increase the metabolism so that fat is burned more quickly. Dieters are directed to take at least four days off before repeating the 3-day cycle.

Most of the weight loss from it is caused by a huge reduction in carbohydrate intake, which means that you would experience mainly water loss. There is also an extreme reduction in caloric intake, as just mentioned, so as soon as the three days is up, regaining any lost weight is almost a guarantee.

The three day diet may also be known as the Navy Diet, the Day Diet, or the Army Three Day Diet.

Is it a good idea? No, we sure don't think so. It is a fad diet, as you might have already guessed and has no lasting benefits, so it is not advisable to try it.

Remember that it will probably only help you with temporary weight loss, even if you stay on the diet longer than the few days.

If you are looking for a weight loss program and exercise plan that will help you maintain your health, weight, strength, and more, then this diet is not for you. This diet might only offer you temporary weight loss, and might not have enough nutrients in it to help you workout on a regular basis.
