This diet works on a chemical breakdown and is proven. Do not vary or subsitute any of the above foods. Salt and pepper must not be used and no other seasonings. When no quantity is given there are no restrictions other than common sense. This diet is to be used for 3 days at a time. In 3 days you will lose 10lbs after 3 days of dieting you can eat normally but do not over do it. You can lose up to 40lbs in one month if you stick to it. Toast to be dry no butter or margarine.

I didnt lost 10lbs but i did lose 3lbs & felt way less bloated than i usually do. I hated the 3 days though only because i hate Tuna, Peanut Butter & Beetroot. If any of you like those foods then it should be easy for you.

Let me know if anyone tries it & what the results are like!

I'd be really leary about that diet. It does not sound all that healthy in my opinion.

Besides, if I that little amount of food, I think I might pass out.

I always thought if you loose weight that quickly it's just water weight that will come right back ... plus, I agree with redrocks, I *know* I would feel faint eating so little food! I eat breakfast at 6 am and always have to have a mid-morning snack so I don't pass out by lunch!

Also how can they guarantee you'll lose 10 lbs? Everyone has different metabolisms and different activity levels, you can't guarantee a weight loss like that without some individual calculations, I would think ...

I don't even like hotdogs for lunch; there's no way my stomach could handle that in the morning ... looking more closely at the other meals this definitely a weird diet ...

Sorry i forgot to edit the format after i posted that. I copied it from work and sometimes that gets messed up. The 2 hotdogs is for tea on day 2 and they are only 100 cals each AFAIK.

Oh and Cottage cheese is the least fattening cheese out there as far as i know girl_geek. Having that for lunch is recommended in Ireland so you get your calcium, dairy and its not high in fat!

To be honest it wasn't too bad but i wouldnt be in a hurry to try it again. I'd prefer just to eat ALL fruit & veg for 3 days instead! I drink coffee anyway so i didnt mind that part. Although i usually drink it with milk & that wasnt allowed

That's good to know ... dairy products are one thing that I will go ahead and eat even though some of them are fattening just to get the calcium, since I have a lot of risk factors for osteoporosis! (When I was younger my mom let me have ice cream every night for dessert just for the calcium! lol) Of course I'm not that worried about fat and calories at the moment since I have such a high metabolism, but I still try not to eat a ton of fat and fried foods and such since that's not healthy for anyone

Though I'm tempted to try anything these days (e.g. TrimSpa BABY
) . . .

What I hear and believe to be true is the slower (moderate) the loss, the more permanent. You should only attempt to lose 1-2 lbs per week.

This diet does work. My brother-in-law has lost 108 lbs. doing this diet, along with exercise and has kept off the weight for over 2 years. Just be sure to watch the cholesterol levels. I started it three days ago and am down to 137 lbs. I have 12 more lbs. to lose AND WILL KEEP THE EXTRA WEIGHT OFF!

My mom's doc put her on a similiar diet she's gone from 235 to 190 in 3 1/2 months. It's basically a starter diet to help you eat 3 meals a day in moderation but of course she started exercising. Now, she's joined Weight Watchers for the social interaction support.

hey there~

I was talking to my trainer at the gym, and he said that the healthy amount to lose is around 2-3lbs a week, and about 10-12lbs a month- by eating healthy and regular exercise.. As much as regular exercise can be a pain, all in all I feel better after the month is over knowing that I lost weight and gained muscle tone and a healthy eating habit...

I've always heard 1-2 lbs a week is healthy, but if you are really overweight you can safely lose a few more pounds a week, at least at the beginning!
