3 Day Diet Plan


3 Day Diet Plan

The 3 Day Diet Plan is a fad diet created in the 1980s and was originally called simply the 3 day diet. Since then the diet has seen many variations and been called many names. The 3 Day Cardiac Diet, the 3 Day Hospital Diet, and the Miracle 3 Day Diet are just a few of the identities by which the 3 Day Diet Plan is known.

No matter what the name the 3 day diet plan is going by, it often times has a very similar meal plan and generally all iterations have little to no exercise associated with them.

What is the 3 Day Diet Plan?

As I mentioned before the 3 day diet plan has many adaptations. Instead of explaining each of them in this article I am going to outline the general concept and meal plan for the original 3 day diet. If you are interested in learning the details of the other variations of the 3 day diet plan I suggest searching our website for them as we have explained the majority of them in detail on their own pages.

The 3 Day Diet Plan has a very simple concept. Follow 3 days of eating a specific meal plan without doing any exercise and your body will create a metabolic reaction that will help you lose 10 lbs in just 3 days.

Is the 3 Day Diet Plan Healthy?

Before you start any diet I would suggest consulting your family’s physician. The 3 Day Diet plan is not recommended to be performed for more than 3 days, and does not combine healthy eating or exercise which are the 2 necessities in losing weight and being healthy.

Doe the 3 Day Diet Plan Work?

I personally have never attempted the 3 day diet plan.  For me I do not like the idea of following a fad or yo yo diet. The 3 days diet does not incorporate exercise and in my opinion may help you lose weight that will be gained back once you begin eating in your normal fashion. The 3 Day Diet Plan may work for you, but theorist believe that the majority of weight lost on this plan is water weight, and is not fat.  As I said before be sure to speak with you physician before starting any diet to see if the 3 day diet plan is a viable option for you.
