The Three day Diet
The Three day diet was developed for people who want to lose some weight, but doesn’t want to be on a diet for too long. You wont lose a huge amount of weight, but you’ll still lose some weight.
What is the Three day diet?
The three-day diet is based on the consumption of certain foods that speed up the metabolism which will make your body burn more calories than usual. The diet lasts for exactly three days and shouldn’t be repeated without a break from 4 to 5 days.It is mandatory to eat the mentioned foods exactly in the recommended amounts, so even if you aren’t hungry you still should eat the amount of food that’s recommended. Otherwise, the creators of this diet, warn that you won’t achieve the desired results.
What is the effect of the Three day diet?
You should lose about 5 pounds in three days with the Three-day diet. Despite the good results provided by this diet, it isn’t a good solution to lose weight in this manner in the long run. The Three-day diet is a diet that gives small results in a short amount of time and if you decide to try this diet, you should eat healthy afterwards so you won’t return the lost pounds and get a yo-yo effect.
Because this diet is low in carbohydrates, the lost weight is a result of getting rid of the excess water from the body. This is because carbohydrates have the ability to retain water in the body.
Less carbohydrate intake with this diet causes less water retention in your body and if you don’t pay attention what you eat after the diet, the pounds will come back.
