The 3-day diet – weight loss miracle or major fad?

What do we do when we see a diet that claims you can lose 10lbs in 3 days? We (raise our eyebrows), look into it of course.

The 3-day diet is one of the few diets that has stood the test of time and is still around now. However, just because something has been around the block a bit, it doesn’t negate that it’s any good.Also known as The Military Diet, the 3-day diet is unsurprisingly pretty hardcore. It states that you must follow an incredibly strict plan of under 1000 calories for 3 consecutive days at a time, with a 4-5 day break.

Now you could say this sounds familiar. Another more recent diet that has exploded onto our health radar is the 5:2 diet, which advocates intermittent fasting for 2 days with 5 day breaks.So are the health benefits the same? Or is the 3-day diet just another fad? We looked into what this diet promises and asked the experts for their advice.

How it works:

By restricting your daily calorie count to under 1000 calories for 3 days straight, this diet claims that you kick-start your metabolism, burn fat and lose weight fast.The thing to remember is that unlike the 5:2 diet, the 3-day diet has to be completed in 3 consecutive days. That means restricting your calorie count for quite a considerable time, unlike the 5:2 diet which says you can space out your ‘fasting’ days.

For these 3 days you follow a strict meal plan, which the diet advises you do not stray from at all to get optimum results.

Unusually there is no diet book, no group, or a website on this diet to explain exactly how following this plan actually works and boosts that metabolism. So let’s find out On top of your eating plan, dieters are also allowed 950ml of water or non-caloric drinks daily.

“There are a few things about this diet which seem rather odd. The first is that artificial sweeteners are recommended, the second is that the plan recommends 65g of ice cream every day,” she says.

Artificial sweeteners are known to be a bit of a question mark, and so including them on a weight loss plan does seem slightly alarming. Ice cream, on a fast? The mind boggles.So what about that all important weight loss then? Well Lorna agrees that it’s highly unlikely that a) you’d lose that much weight, b) it would be anything long term. “The claim that you lose 10lbs in 3 days is very suspicious. I would imagine that this would be almost completely water weight which you would put straight back on, if not more, when you stop,” she says.

The restrictiveness and the intensity of the diet also rings alarm bells for Lorna who says that she would predict that fasting for 3 days straight would have bad side effects like headaches and dizziness but also could make you binge more on your 4-5 normal days.

So would she recommend the 3-day diet?

“No I wouldn’t. When the 3-day diet was originally around it would have made more sense. But nowadays the plan is incredibly old-fashioned, especially when you have more modern alternatives that work by intermittent fasting with scientifically proven results, like the 5.2 diet,” she concludes.
