So many weight loss programs and dieting systems date back several decades. Apparently, people have been battling the bulge for many years. Take a look at the 3 Day Diet plan. This specific system first hit the weight loss scene back in 1985. It basically aims to promote fast weight reduction, lower cholesterol levels, boost the user’s energy, and even cleanse the body to some extent. What makes the 3 Day Diet plan unique is that it really lasts for three days at a time. Once the three days have passed, the user enjoys four or five days of “normal or regular” eating, but then the diet plan resumes.

Like so many other weight loss programs today, there is no fitness or exercise regimen involved with the 3 Day Diet plan. Potentially users can drop up to a whopping 10 pounds within the three day period. Although there is a specific eating plan for this program, dieters are directed not to overeat or under-eat. To elaborate a little more, the first daily meal consists of: day one breakfast (half of a grapefruit, one piece of toast with peanut butter, and black coffee or tea) lunch (one piece of toast, one half can of tuna, and one cup of tea or black coffee), and dinner (one cup of carrots, one cup of vanilla ice cream, one cup of green beans, one apple, and three ounces of chicken/lean meat). While day two and three vary some with the foods, the portions pretty much stay the same. Other than these foods, users are to consume four cups of water each day.

Product Features

The 3 Day Diet plan is one of several weight loss systems that involves the consumption of specific foods. While there are no supplements or exercise routines involved with this program, dieters are directed to follow a specific meal plan for three days at a time. Even though 4-5 days are taken off in between dieting sessions, the 3 Day Diet can carry on indefinitely to encourage fat reduction. Ideally this diet should increase the dieter’s energy, help with fat burning, cleanse the body, and lower cholesterol levels. There is no clinical research to support the effectiveness of the 3 Day Diet plan.

Advantages

  • There are no potentially harmful diet drugs involved with the 3 Day Diet.
  • Dieters only have to commit to this weight loss program for three days at a time.

Disadvantages

  • There are no success stories presented on an official website for the 3 Day Diet.
  • It’s unclear how this program will cleanse the body, lower cholesterol levels and boost the user’s energy since no clinical studies are provided.
  • There are no fat burning supplements or appetite suppressants utilized with the 3 Day Diet plan.

Conclusion

In some respects, it appears that the 3 Day Diet is somewhat of an 80s “fad diet plan.” On the upside, this weight loss program does encourage the consumption of water, vegetables and lean meats, however, there is no exercise encouraged with the 3 Day Diet. This may work as a red flag for some dieters. Furthermore, there is no clinical data or trials offered to support the overall effectiveness of this weight loss plan.

    My 25th birthday is next month and I am making a trip back to Florida to celebrate it with all my friends(homesick). I started getting lax and my sleep pattern was extremely messed up and I avoid the scale like the plague so I didn’t realize I was gaining weight until my size 8 Levis wouldn’t button up. I got on the scale and realized I was 178! That was about a month or so ago. I joined a local gym last Friday and Ive been keeping up with going on the days im not too busy and staying for at least two hours. I have an apt with my personal trainer this Saturday for my fitness eval. I am going to try this diet because its quick and there are way more success stories than unsuccessful ones. I have a little less than a month to get down to between 145 and 155 (my comfort zone). I have always been thick (but even proportioned) and eventually over time I would like to get back down to 132, my prepregnant size. That was the smallest I had ever been in my adult life and then boom…I get preggo. Even after having my daughter I stayed 145-155 so I am ticked about gaining. My sleep schedule is back to normal (as normal is for me) and Im hoping this will work since I hate diets and love food. I don’t eat much nowadays but I know that doesn’t help. Time to get it jumping! Wish me luck! Ill post results! Maybe even a link to before and after pictures! Later!

    The Bees Knees natural peanut butter
    strong coffee plain

    Lunch:

    Brownberry 100% honey whole wheat

    strong coffee

    Dinner:

    I’m using tilapia as the protein source
    broccoli
    carrots
    apple
    low-fat vanilla ice cream

    I won’t be weighing myself until day 4 (if I can manage not to peek).

    Good luck everyone

    First id like to explain that week ago i completely started eating healthier all together. I quit drinking soda and no snacks except fiber bars and special K cereal.salads and lean meats. I lost a few pounds just on that and exercising 4-5 days a week for an hour a day. Im also drinking about 5-6 bottles of water daily. I used to never drink water. Must i add that i have thyroid disease.
    Im 26 years old,5’8, was 314 lbs(3weeks ago), now 305 lbs. One child. Three weeks ago i had my Mirena (IUD-birthcontrol ) removed in which may have had some contribution to my weight gain since giving birth to my daughter . I was never this heavy !
    I had no energy in me to do anything..so i had to make big changes..

    Ive decided to try the 3 day plan just to boost my already new healthy eating and i completed my 1st day as of right now…I feel great! I dont feel like im starving. I dont like grapefruit or black coffee but i forced myself to get through it. The lunch was hard with tuna being dry(mayo would have been great!) and the black coffee again! But when it came to the dinner i chose to have shrimp as my “any 3oz of meat”. I wasn’t even hungry..i had to force myself to get through the fruit and ice cream. Then a few hours later i went to the gym for an hour. Im a little hungry since i exercised but im making it ;) and i feel great as far as energy and mentally it feels wonderful .

    I have alot off pee breaks! Lol

    I will update on the 4th day.. :)
    Good luck to you all and keep positive!

    What times do you normally eat on the 3 day diet

    Emily

    I feel as if those of you who didn’t get good results, didn’t follow it precisely. Like if you want a substitute for the food, because you don’t like the taste of it, then do a different diet. Once the three days is up, you need to keep eating very well, or you will gain your weight back. Exercise is a big factor to losing weight in any diet, if you just sit around and not exercise, don’t expect to lose a lot of weight.

    Started this diet today. I have gained 10 pounds in the last 6 months, so my goal is to lose that. I am taking raspberry ketones along with this so that I don’t feel so hungry. So far so good. It’s 1:30 pm and I haven’t even been hungry for lunch yet. Will try to update any progress.

    Hi, I am doing the 3 day diet, because I’m with a cold , o am not moving much so from day 1 to day two lost 1 pound, is very hard for me to loose weight , so if I loose 2 pounds at the end of the 3 day I will be happy, I normally eat very little and still can’t loose this 10 kilos, I exercise every day until a week ago but still hard to loose,

    Hi there. I just started this 3 day diet, and you do have to eat the foods they tell you to eat, in the EXACT specific order that the plan is laid out. You cannot substitute other fruits or veggies,or your results will not be the same. I know, I followed the plan to a T, and lost 8 lbs in 3 days, and my 2nd go around, I switched an apple for an orange, peas instead of carrots, etc, and only lost 3 lbs. So, stick to the way it is laid out. NO SUBSTITUTES AND DO NOT SAVE YOUR APPLE, OR TUNA FOR LATER.Eat your meals at the same time everyday, if possible. Also, only stay on it for the 3 days, then eat regular, small meals for 4 days (or your metabolism will slow right down)and go back on it again if you need to. Hope this helps :)

    I wanted to add my results…
    The version of this diet that I did was The Birmingham 3 day . There is another version of it called The army diet-strict diet may have better results with this one-in my opinion.
    Day 1…I was starving but managed. 178 vs 175
    Day 2…I was just thinking of my dessert…
    175 vs 174
    Day 3 … Was hard because my day was similar to this 3 day but the portions were not the same and it had beans as an option. 174 vs 174
    After the 4 th day 174 vs 173
    -5 lbs is the result. Please feel free to try it and choose the version that most fits your needs. Update with results. I will try this one today.

    I did this diet from Tues-Thurs this week.

    Start:147ish
    End 142ish

    I say “ish” because its so easy for weight to fluctuate. But yeah, for not having too much to lose, 5lbs is a great start. Today I have actually been motivated to eat well because I don’t want to waste everything I just did. So today I’ve had

    Breakfast: 1 egg, piece of toast, banana.

    Lunch: Apple, piece of cheddar cheese, spinach salad with vinegar dressing, tomato, olives, edamamae and 1 hard boiled egg, and turkey on top of the salad for protein.

    We’ll see what happens for dinner but I am trying to cut back on the carbs as much as possible.

    This is the best program I ever had. I started on April 2011 and in 6 months lost almost 20 pounds! Still doing it ever since. I go to the gymn 3 x a week and I feel so great! You have to follow the diet to the dot though. First time it’s so hard but when I saw I lost 2 lbs on the 1st day, it made me motivated.

    If I can do it, you can do it too! Good luck!!!

    I actually had found this diet randomly internet searching different things. I tried it and loved it. I only lost 10 lbs, but lost 3 dress sizes! I did this for over a month period. I also incorporated exercise that’s the most important part to this diet. Ppl seem to think you only have to do a diet and get results, you have to exercise too! Good luck guys!

I have three kids and my youngest was born 6 months ago. I need to do somthing that will work fast. I was looking at diet pills but this seems to be a better fit for my lifestyle. I also would rather not start pills. Is there anyone out there who has done this recently and got results? I would like to lose 10 pounds. Any feedabck would be appreciated. Thanks

    This diet has always been my safety net. If I need to drop a few pounds quickly, it works every time. I was on the South Beach diet last week, which in the past I’ve been very successful with, but for some reason I couldn’t stick with it. But the 3 day diet is very easy to follow, and stick with, I guess in part from the carbs it allows. Today is day one, and by Feb 4th I would like to lose anywhere from 10 to 20lbs…..I have never commented on a website before, but thought it might help me or others stick with it and discuss our progress. Good luck fellow dieters ;)

    I am going to start the 3 day diet tomorrow..I am going out this evening to purchase the necessary products and will routinely post my results..definitely got to invest in a scale. I am a young adult, very young in fact. I run mostly every day for about 3 miles..I am obsessive with my weight, not like unhealthily or anything I just always conscious of it. I don’t know what it is or what I’ve been doing that’s so different as to why I feel like i’ve gained this weight recently, but i definitely have and cannot stand it! Most people would say I’m crazy but I’m about to see how crazy I really am if I can stick with this low calorie intake. I just hope it isn’t any other reason why this weight feels like its coming on!

    I am on day 2 of this diet, iv lost 3 pounds since yesterday..amazing! I no its prob water but I dont care, going on holidays nx wk & just want to lose a few pounds, i was 9pounds 4 yesterday am 9 1 today, I did exercise tho I usually do alot, did an hours walkin on the treadmill & a 40 min workout later, felt a little light headed during the day am sure it was because of 2 much exercise.

    You do be hungry on it, but I try & time mine so its breakfast at 12 lunch at 3 & dinner at 7 so wont be hungry at night, Im on my holidays from college so at home all day & can do this but dont think I could do it if was at college/work.

    I did substitute some things as I think its just a very low cal diet nothing to do with chemical breakdown, I substitute the grapefruit for an orange, I had no peanut butter so I just thinly spread low fat butter, at dinner I used a cup of mixed stir fry veg instead of the green beans, loved having the ice cream at the end twas gorgeous was still hungry a few hours later tho. I feel lighter today & hungry but feel good, gona keep it up..can’t wait to see the scales 2moro morn.

    I actually did this diet in the year of 2003, I weighed 243lbs when I started it and in 1 1/2 months I had gotten down to 188lbs. It was very taxing mentally, there were times I would look at the tuna and just pray it would disappear, but I couldn’t complain because it did work…I wore a size 18W and got down to a 12-14, but it does work, but you have to stick with it and I didn’t use any substitutions, drank water only and moderate exercise….good luck all!

    This diet works! In April 2002, I bought my wedding dress in a 12, couldn’t begin to zip it up. So, I was about a 14 or 16 then. By late June, they had to take it in to a size 8. I pretty much didn’t cheat, except for a little more icecream, but also did not exercise as much. I had just lost my dog and couldn’t walk without him. I’d cry at the top of the road and would have to come back home. So, all my exercising was strictly floor exercises in 2002: I did this diet on Mon, Tues, and Wed, most of the time. I didn’t overeat on the other 4 days, just maybe one of those days. I did cosmos on Friday. I did the Del Monte grapefruit in the jar, no sugar added, too convenient. I saved the apple and cantaloupe for snacks. The second day is the toughest, but once you get through the third day, I swear you’ll feel great! It works and is the fastest that I’ve ever been able to lose weight. I highly recommend that you have a plan for the next four days. Try to add about 500 calories to your 4th day, then 5th day 800 calories, 6th day 400 calories, 7th day 500 calories. I put more on Friday for happy hour time. You can’t keep staying too low for those 4 days or your metabolism will get too slow. I know tons of people who have lost weight on WW and have gained it back. This diet is fast, simple to follow, takes will power but you get the will power from the quick weight loss. Note: I didn’t exercise too strenuously on those 3 days, mostly weights and floor exercises. It will work! Good luck!

    3rd day of diet now. From 1.day I lost 5.1 pound in two days. Everyday exercised 1.day- 4 mile run-walk and 2. day- 2 mile run and 4 mile bike. Today plan to go to gym again. 1st day was great I had lot of energy, felt my body was clean, problem was too much coffee so I had hard time sleep. 2nd day I was very hungry and tired but kept dieting. I know I have to be very careful from tomorrow to start eat normally again and not overeat.

    Hey Guys! I am on the 2nd day of of the 3 day diet and lost 3 pounds from day 1 – day 2! yay! feelin great – drinking lots of water in between meals so i feel full. i ate the dinner fruit in the afternoon to help tide me over until dinner. after the 3 days i am going to eat the following for 4 days:
    breakfast – fiber cereal with banana and almond mlik
    lunch – salad with grilled chicken and low fat dressing
    dinner – fish and vegetables

    i feel if you keep on that cycle you will not gain the weight back that you lost in the first 3 days.

    i started this diet, i am through with my second day.day 1 was surprisingly good, i mean i felt content after dinner.
    but day 2 is difficult. and moreover, i observed that will no wi havent lost any weight though ( but the reviews look great evrywhere on the web for this 3 day diet.so i wanted to give it a try since all other diets r too long!
    i just hope i reduce weight or else all this deprivation of food will be useless :( (((
    and also i have a question.
    i am having bloated feeling….yes constipation.did anybdy experience constiptation with this diet.

    I just finished the diet 5 days ago and am starting it again today. I lost 5 lbs after the first 3 days – some of which I’m sure was water. Today I weighed in at 3lbs lighter than my start weight. I’m fine with that. The basic principle for me was to create a calorie deficit for a few days so I could get used to eating less in general. I never ate really unhealthy foods to begin with so the off days weren’t the starve-and-binge experience that some people say. This week the only changes I’ll make are to drink water instead of coffee. I’m also using ground turkey breast for my lean meat, and substituting that for the beef franks I’m supposed to eat on day two. Somebody mentioned wanting bread recommendations – I like Silver Hills Squirrely Bread, Adams Peanut Butter, and as many organic products as possible because I really believe that the quality of the foods you use will make a difference too. Someone also mentioned that the “dry tuna” is hard to eat – I add lemon juice and fresh cracked pepper and it’s delicious. Don’t forget to use what little seasoning you get! It makes a difference!

    What is the best cycle for this diet?
    3 Day Diet then 4 days normal or modified?
    How often do you repeat it?
    Thanks for a reply.

    [Reply]

    Carrie

    The best cycle is 3 days diet and then 4 days of normal eating. Normal eating should still be within reason. So don’t go overboard or all the hard work you put in for the 3 days will be wasted. In my opinion, sweets etc… are still allowed but should most definitely be consumed in moderation. You should repeat the cycle until you are at your ideal weight. I hope this helps :)

    I’ve been walking 3+ miles per day and eating a lot less than usual for two months with very little to show for it. I really needed to lose inches so that I could fit into my bridesmaid dress. Now I’m at the end of day 3 of the 3 day diet and IT FITS!!!!

    I’m sure that the walking and dieting before had a lot to do with it but the 3day diet kicked it into overdrive! Now I have the motivation to keep up my weight loss…(I was getting really down about not having any real results) Who knows maybe I’ll have to have the dress taken in by the time that May gets here! :)

    I definitely recommend this.. Oh, and I found that the end of day veggies were best if I steamed them for a long time in water and apple cider vinegar (the calorie free kind) and then let the water evaporate and let the vegetables carmelize. They were the key (I think) because they made me have giant poops! hahahahah

    Good luck!

    I’d recommend 100% whole wheat. The more fiber you get the more weight that you’ll lose. Good luck! :)

    No…. it’s something to do with how the food reacts with your body that causes you to lose weight… the metabolic breakdown i think… hope that helps :)

    I’m currently on day 3 today and add of this morning I’ve lost 10.1 pounds from the first 2 days… I’ve followed the diet to the “t” and I’ve drank 1/2 my body weight each day in water and exercised 15 minutes each day so far…i just did a mile walk briskly… now, granted i still have 65 pounds to lose but this definitely has me motivated!!! Good luck to you all!!

    1/2 your body weight in water? that seems impossible? For me that would be 100 lbs of water, and 8 lbs make a gallon…. could you clarify? maybe a typo?

    I am currently on my second day of the diet and will share “MY” specifics on Day 4. The first thing that i would like to share is that the diet is only for 3 days and it is a very very taxing mental commitent thus far. Humans always want the easy way out but if you are every going to know the success of the diet is too do it to the “T” then map your results,emotions and limitations. Let me tell you that i did have a headache the 1st day however keep in mind that anytime your body adjust itself and craves things and the increase of water the toxins need to escape- DRINK MORE WATER. 2ndly, you may find your hungry the 1st day -DRINK DIET SODA BTWEEN MEALS,do not neglect your water(fact you encourage weightloss wi,th the more water introduced into the body). I can say that although my mind was a bit cranky i have a good amount of energy. When finished the 1st dinner surprizing l felt more mellow. Either it is the lack of calories or the fact that l want to sleep these 3 days away l found that the 1st night sleep was above avg. I have a party on the 12th so l have the determination to follow it to the end and i . I can easily see how this jumpstart is effecting me how l think about the 4 days off B4 i start on a 2nd go. Im not craving super-bad foods or eye-popping portions( which l don’t really eat anyway). So l will check back and if there are people interested l will post my 3 days and answer any questions except for subsitutes. i will also post my weight,fat,water,muscle results.

    On day one I’m always starving until dinner time. I think that is the hardest part of the three days. After that I’m fine.
