Understanding The Dangers Of The Three Day Diet

Posted Sep 20 2011 2:51am

The 3 Day Diet dates back to 1985 and today can be found all over the Internet and on book store shelves. The three day diet and its variants claim quick , a cleansing of the system, lower cholesterol and increased energy all through a specific metabolic reaction that no version of the diet has ever explained.

The diet goes on for three days and then off for four or five with lots of specific and cryptic steps so that when it fails the dieter can be pinned for doing something wrong.

First day breakfast includes coffee (no sugar), one half a grapefruit, and a piece of toast with one tablespoon peanut butter. For lunch, you are to eat a can of tuna, a slice of toast, and black coffee. Dinner consists of 3 ounces of chicken or lean meat, one cup of green beans, one cup of carrots, one apple, and one cup of regular vanilla ice cream.

The other two days of the three day diet are pretty similar in meal quantity, though the specifics change, for example Day 2 recommends two beef franks for dinner in place of three ounces of lean meat. The diet crows that weight loss of 10 pounds is achievable over the 3 days that the diet lasts.

Hogwash is the answer. The inquiry is what is a specific reaction to that claim? As stated the metabolic reaction has never been examined much less proven. Any weight loss would be mostly water loss due to a lack of carbs which help the body hold water. That could lead to dehydration.

Because of binge eating after such starvation and because most of the weight lost is from water, the weight will rapidly return after the three days. Deprive the body of water in three day cycles enough times and a person could develop kidney damage, dehydration, or a host of other dangerous conditions.

If something sounds too good to be true it is. The 3 day diet sounds too good to be true.
