The 3 Day Diet

The only kind of diet that I have done and has worked for me back in college is called The 3 Day Diet. I will againĀ have this to the test soon. I was then tipping my heaviest at 107lbs and lost 7 pounds on the fourth day. As per this diet’s claim, it has the ability to have one lose as much as 10 lbs. in 3 days. I did pop a Malteser (or two) on the second day. Had I followed the diet to the letter, I might have lost 3 more pounds.

Its being effective is pointed to the chemical breakdown of all the foods combined.

Black coffee or tea (Sweet & Low or Equal) or water
1/2 Grapefruit or Juice
1 slice toast with 1 Tbsp. Peanut Butter

1/2 Cup of Tuna
1 slice toast
Black coffee or tea (Sweet & Low or Equal) or water

3 oz. any lean meat
1 cup green beans
1 cup carrots
1 cup vanilla ice cream
1 medium apple
Black coffee or tea (Sweet & Low or Equal) or water


The 3 Day Diet

It was during my college years when I first tried out the 3 Day Diet. I saw Mary Prieto’s article in The Philippine Star and immediately got my hands on it. I reproduced it and made sure I got myself a copy for future reference.

I lost a total of 7 pounds on Day 4! All I did was follow the menu plan for three days, which wasn’t at all what you would call a crash diet. There was even one dinner meal that I thought was too much for me. The apparent reason that this diet works was said to be because of the chemical break down of the foods in the meal. I remember cheating on a ball of Maltesers during that time. But that was it. (more…)
