A three day minimum calorie plan with 3 meals with no in-between meals. The 3 Day Diet is one of the most popular short-term fad diets around today.
Often mistakenly called The Cleveland Clinic Diet, the 3 Day Diet is a regimented plan that must be followed exactly for three days at a time, followed by normal eating for four or five days before opting to resume the plan again.
The 3 Day Diet is simply a low calorie diet. By some unspecified magical force, the combination of the suggested foods included in this plan is supposed to create a unique metabolic reaction and boost fat burning.
Drawback of 3 day Diet
This kind of diet is often used by those who experience “yo-yo” weight – it is not a good habit to get into.
- The plan yields about 1,000 calories a day which has the ability to lower metabolism so when dieter reverts back to normal eating, you regain weight even quicker.”
- The diet “sets up a vicious cycle of being hungry during the restrictive three days and most likely overeating on the off days.”
Review of 3 Day Diet
Many people adopt the diet to try and achieve short-term weight loss. Weight loss is due to a sudden drop in calories – some of this may be fat – but most will be from water loss.
