3 Day Hospital Diet


The idea behind the 3 day diet fad is to eat  a low calorie, low fat diet for 3 full days in order to quickly lose some weight. Different 3 day diets report up to 10-12lbs weight loss. Although such high weightloss on these diets is likely not typical if followed correctly and safely it is possible that you could quickly lose a little more weight than with a standard plan.

The 3 day hospital diet is one of the 3 day diet plans floating around. This plan is named such as it involves a diet extremely similar to the diet served by many hospitals. Sounds, awful I know but it’s not all that bad.

A few things to note about the 3 day hospital diet

Also if at any point during the 3 day hospital diet you feel weak or ill, stop it immediately. The calorie intake may be too low for you to sensibly operate on, your health comes first and foremost.
