The Danish Diet claims to help users lose ten to twenty pounds in just thirteen days. They do state that the amount of weight lost will depend on the individual and how much weight the individuals body needs to lose. The Danish Diet must be followed precisely or it probably will not work and this diet is extremely strict. The diet plan was designed to help increase the metabolism and they claim that this boost in metabolism can last up to two years regardless of how the user eats once they are done with the diet.

Product Features

The Danish Diet helps users plan their meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Users can have absolutely no snacks and must drink plenty of water. Some days users are able to eat a portion of beef steak with a salad and other days users must only have a glass of water as one of their meals. There will be days where users are eating three meals and then there will be days where users are eating a meal and then two liquid meals consisting of coffee or tea and water. This strict diet is supposed to help users eat foods that burn calories upon ingestion as well as some extra calories.

Advantages

  • The Danish Diet’s meal plan is posted online in its entirety.
  • The actual diet is free users will have to pay for their groceries though.

Disadvantages

  • The creator of the Danish Diet is not disclosed.
  • No research or clinical studies have been conducted on this diet.
  • The Danish Diet requires users to adhere to strict guidelines and lifestyle changes.
  • Absolutely no substitutions or compromises can be made with this diet.
  • The Danish Diet is not a good match for vegetarians and vegans.
  • This is only a short-term diet.
  • The typical breakfast on the Danish Diet is a simple cup of tea or coffee with one sugar cube.
  • The website contains several typos and errors.

Conclusion

The Danish Diet doesn’t really stand out from the rest of the weight loss and weight management diet programs today. The Danish Diet may not be for everyone because there are no supplements included with any proven fat burners or appetite suppressants in them so those seeking a diet in which supplements are used that have the ability to suppress the appetite and burn fat may want to research other programs with products that are intended for appetite suppression and fat burning. Those seeking weight loss should also develop a healthy diet and exercise program that works for them because then they are more likely to stick to it. Users will need to assess their health and fitness goals and decide if using the Danish Diet is right for them.

    I’ve attempted this diet three times now (each within 6 months of one another as it is an extreme diet) the first time I caved in on day 5 due to hunger, the second time I completed the whole 13 days and I’m now a year later attempting it again as my old eating habits kicked in. A few ground rules:

    Stick to the diet EXACTLY and don’t deviate
    Must drink AT LEAST 2 litres of water a day – it sounds a lot but I got into the habit of drinking a small glass of water on the hour every hour and that pretty much saved the hunger for me
    Don’t exercise at all – you will faint as I did!
    Eat breakfast before 9am, lunch before 2pm and dinner before 6pm
    Set your goal and know its only going to last 13 days, not forever
    Don’t attempt it again within a year – this diet has been untested, theres no obvious author and the effects it puts on your body and metabolism can be dangerous
    Don’t attempt if you are pregnant, teenager or child
    TAKE MULTIVITAMINS – it will replenish the minerals and vitamins that this diet is lacking

    I was a waist size 32 for many years but then went up to a 36, after this diet I dropped back to size 32! In two weeks, I lost about 9kg, my six pack started to show again and side ribs. My weight stayed around the same for a while but bad eating has put me back unto size 34 waist, my goal this time round is to complete the diet as before and then use it as a springboard for my permanent healthy eating lifestyle. I am writing a Day 14-28 schedule myself which takes this diet but introduces small amounts of dairy back into the diet, healthy nuts, more fruit, whilst still keeping carbs to a minimum, wish me luck!

    Not for the faint hearted, and not a permanent solution, but effective in losing weight very quickly over a short time

    there are so many versions of this diet out there and although most variations are minor, eg. spinach/brocoli.. etc. there is one fundamental difference that is very worrying. one one version it is stipulated that you HAVE TO put the lump of sugar in your coffee and nothing else, and then on other versions it says NO SUGAR allowed at all. Can anyone comment on this please? thank you,

    I tried this diet 4 month ago, and I lost 5 pounds in total, from 125 to 120. now I am trying again, but for some reason it’s not work as good as last time, now it’s day 7, I only lost 1 pound. I heard this diet only can do once a year, is this the reason it’s not work on me on 2nd time, which is 4 months later. if so, what’s the reason?

    [Reply]

    Kathy

    Theresa, You are supposed to do the diet once every two years or there is health risks. The reason you are not loosing because you are supposed to take a break. The diet also allows you to loose only the amount of weight you are supposed to loose, therefore maybe you should re-evaluate the amount you want to loose. Maybe this is the weight you should be in order to stay healthy.

    I’ve been on the diet for 10 days now and have lost 12kgs/26.5lbs. 3 days to go! I’ve stuck to the diet religiously, and haven’t struggled at all. No hunger, nothing. Bare in mind, I weighed 115kgs/234lbs when I started. I’m going to start weight watchers straight afterwards and start jogging again. This diet has motivated me sooo much. I just hope that I don’t put the weight back on afterwards like everyone is saying I will.

    I ate around 25gms of cheese on the fourth day because one version of the diet said I should eat 250 gms while another version has cottage cheese on day eleven. Am confused with the variations. Will this effect my weight loss?Also I have lost only one and half kgs in three days.Am I losing enough?

    yes … im doing it and i just completed day 2. i’m afraid to weight myself coz i don wanna be discouraged by comparing my weight loss with others incase i didn’t lose any. the hardest thing about this diet is the fact that i have to cook 2 meals a day sometimes n when i’m outside with friends i don trust the resturant’s way of cooking for my diet.. so in this 2 days i had my dinner very late at night ( thats what i normally never do) so now although im really tired i trying to stay awake atleast 2 more hours.
    i also replaced Ham with lamb thigh meat since pork is forbidden in kuwait. that’s why i’m afraid my results won’t be the same.

    My ex husband and i both tried this diet and we both lost weight, however i lost more then he did at 20 pounds and him only 18. I am not a coffee drinker so i did tea instead. and i dont like tomatoes so left those out completely instead of replacing them. EVERYTHING else was the same and it worked. its 2 weeks but when you are done you can’t just go back to what you did before as this is a “retraining”.. ONLY try this if you have the time. Good luck to all who try this diet.

    I skipped the tomato on the first day do you think it will effect my diet and should i quit?

    I tried this!

    I loved this diet, it helped me lose 15 pounds over the 13 days, and then I continued to lose another 10-15 pounds over that summer! I recommend it to anyone who has the time and discipline to follow it

    Did you continue with the diet or just eat healthy. I’ve lost 4.5 so far after just 2 days into my 2nd week. i feel great. But I also want to lose a bit more. So do i continue the diet or just stick to eating healthy, which I normally do. My weight gain was due to menopause, so i’m very happy to have been able to shed those few kilos

    Ian,when I followed this diet in Kenya, we substituted spinach with organic Kale which is now readily available at waitrose. It worked just as well.
