The 3 Day Diet

Written by Helen Laxton

The 3 Day Diet is a 'crash diet', designed specifically for people who want to lose large amounts of weight very fast. Exponents sayrepparttar 3 Day Diet is chemically and enzyme balanced, and if followed torepparttar 134989 letter, you can allegedly lose 10 pounds in 3 days, hencerepparttar 134990 name.

While we here at have not tried this diet, we would point out that medical opinion generally believes that 'crash' diets, includingrepparttar 134991 3 day diet, can be dangerous. Typically, research suggests that these 'faddy' diets encourage a starve / binge cycle, which is not good for your general health. Any diet offering more than 1 or 2 pounds a week loss should generally be undertaken only under medical supervision, because ofrepparttar 134992 inherent dangers of rapid weight loss.

Another consideration isrepparttar 134993 need to keeprepparttar 134994 weight off once you have lost it. Many followers of 'crash diets' find that although they shedrepparttar 134995 pounds fast, they then pile even more than they lost back on, becauserepparttar 134996 fad diet is not sustainable over long time periods. For steady weight control, you need a regular balanced diet with allrepparttar 134997 essential vitamins, minerals and proteins.

Anyway, having said that,repparttar 134998 basis ofrepparttar 134999 3 Day Diet is simple, ordinary foods commonly found inrepparttar 135000 kitchen. You don't have to buy special diet meals, or eat foodstuffs you normally wouldn't find tasty. No special expensive recipes or ingredients are required. Asrepparttar 135001 diet name suggests, used for only 3 days at a time,repparttar 135002 3 Day Diet is very short term, and lasts only 3 days. After that, you are supposed to return to your normal diet (but without 'overeating' of course!) for 4 days. This completes a full week, and then you start again.

Unlike some crash diets,repparttar 135003 3 day Diet does not involve starving yourself - you eat at normal times, andrepparttar 135004 meals are 'normal' too. The theory behindrepparttar 135005 3 day diet is that by combining certain foods you can create a digestive reaction that boosts your metabolism and helps you burn fat far faster than normal. There is not really any scientific evidence for this, although followers ofrepparttar 135006 diet are adamant this is what happens.
