Does The 3 Day Diet Really Work
Would anticipate: short-term loss with significant water loss. The military diet (AKA 3 day diet) is a short term diet plan. A specific low calorie diet menu is spelled out & is to be used 3 days per week. Food choices are provided for four “days off” totaling 1,500 calorie intake per day. The diet promises that you can lose up to ten pounds in a week. I would be concerned about how low the calorie intake is on > ...Read more

Scam: This is a very-low-calorie diet with an expensive placebo. You'll lose weight by restricting calories, and spend money for something that will do you no good.

Unlike a crash diet, this will result in real, sustained good results. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How long does it take for dairy, citrus, and gluten to complete exit your system? Consumed all 3 and problems with all 3. I hear 3 weeks?
Exit times?: MeghanS006~ normal bowel transit time is about 5days from swallowing to defecation. I think you can be assured that all of those mentioned should have transited during that time. Even if you doubled that time, you do not arrive at 3 weeks. I would say that in 1 week to 10 days you can say that these entities have been excreted from the body thanks ...Read more

Most people believe: the reason it "works" is because of the severe calorie restriction--500 kcal/day-- associated with it.

Most authorities are skeptical of its safety and effectiveness. Target: 1200 cal/day + exercise. ...Read more
