Anyone familiar with the 3-day diet?


Posted by Nirmala N.

Here's the game plan (below). I know this is a fad diet that's been in circulation for many years now and it's gotten new credence on the Internet. Word has it that you can lose up to 10 pounds in three days but I'm not so sure you can actually keep that weight off.

Day 1

Breakfast

Black coffee or tea, with 1-2 packets Sweet & Low or Equal

1/2 grapefruit or juice

1 piece toast with 1 tablespoon peanut butter

Lunch

1/2 cup tuna

1 piece toast

Black coffee or tea, with 1-2 packets Sweet & Low or Equal

Dinner

3 ounces any lean meat or chicken

1 cup green beans

1 cup carrots

1 apple

1 cup regular vanilla ice cream

Day 2

Breakfast

Black coffee or tea, with 1-2 packets Sweet & Low or Equal

1 egg

1/2 banana

1 piece toast

Lunch

1 cup cottage cheese or tuna

8 regular saltine crackers

Dinner

2 beef franks

1 cup broccoli or cabbage

1/2 cup carrots

1/2 banana

1/2 cup regular vanilla ice cream

Day 3

Breakfast

Black coffee or tea, with 1-2 packets Sweet & Low or Equal

5 regular saltine crackers

1 ounce cheddar cheese

1 apple

Lunch

Black coffee or tea, with 1-2 packets Sweet & Low or Equal

1 boiled egg

1 piece toast

Dinner

1 cup tuna

1 cup carrots

1 cup cauliflower

1 cup melon

1/2 cup regular vanilla ice cream

In addition to its strict daily food prescription, dieters drink 4 cups of water or noncaloric drinks daily.

This is a decent amount of food. I hadn't heard of this diet before, but it reminds me of something like the 7-day "Sacred Heart Diet," the one that includes a soup that you can eat as much of as you'd like throughout the week.
When I saw the title of this post it reminded me of a three day diet my mother did when I was young. The first day you had to eat 9 boiled eggs, the second day 9 bananas and the third day 9 hot dogs, no buns.
