3 day diet

I have been looking with interest at the 2 day diet, and in the GI diet thread there was a 3 day diet similar to the one I have. This 3 day diet gives more options than the other one which makes it much more palatable.

My wife and I started this diet 3 weeks ago, and we both lost 4 lbs the first week. I suspect a lot of that was water but nevertheless the weight tends to stay off if you eat sensible the other 4 days. This one like the 2 day is designed to speed up your metabolism. Anyway you can stay on this one as long as you like according to the doctor that gave it to us. We always start on Monday so we can eat the good stuff on the weekend. You can expect to lose at least 1 lb maybe 2 in the subsequent weeks. The good thing about this one is the weight tends to stay off if you continue to eat sensibly after leaving the diet.

This is amazing i mean it looks very useful i am liking it mate you have shared an awesome thing.
Glad to see it and especially because i have found something which is completely new for me.

All I know is I got from a doc and it works

I also have this diet…and it stresses to be sure you do not stay on it for more than 3-days.
Some people try to do there own thing and stay on it for weeks at a time…not good!!!

You are correct, 3 days only and 4 days off. And I would consider only doing this pattern a month at a time.

Its a nice 3 day diet plan and i am sure that it will be good for weight loss and for fitness. I suggest everyone to follow this 3 day diet plan.

are you a medical doctor?
bad suggestion -
any “diets” here are shared by members - not licensed physicians and should not be followed without their doctor’s permission…
