hi there. i have been in the diet for a month now. so far, i have lost 10 pounds. and my tummy isn't that bloated anymore. i never really felt any discomforts or anything. i am not looking forward to shed a lot of pounds quickly. i have no right to complain since i gained all these fat and weight slowly in 6 years. i am combining the 3 day diet with exercise and i am feeling much better right now. :) at least i know i am doing something good for myself. i trust the diet is healthy. i don't drink sodas anymore and drink plenty of water. i have made my friend who is a nutritionist review the diet and she says it's ok for me to take it. :) i've seen this diet worked for a lot of my friends and i believe only those who doesn't have discipline think this is a hoax. :)

Starting the diet today. I did this about two years ago for six weeks and lost 15 lbs. Time to do it again. I would like to lose around 50 altogether. This time I am exercising 6 days a week so I can keep it off when I get to goal. I do three days of aerobics and three days of weight training. Do any of you drink creamer in your coffee on the three days? I just can't seem to give up my coffee and I wonder if that is why I usually only lose about 3 each week.

Yes it is. Just make sure to drink 8- 8oz glasses of water a day too

PostPosted: May 15, 2005 6:48 PM 

i started this died saturday and i am doing it for 6 days in a row instead of 3 is that bad???

Haley







PostPosted: May 16, 2005 1:26 PM 

6 Days is very dangerous because it can cause your metabolism to go into "starvation mode" and then, when you go off the diet, it will automatically store all of the extra food you eat as fat. Three days is about the longest you can go without your body kicking into this state, which is the beginning of horrible yo-yo dieting. Trust me, stick to three and it will work without causing your body great harm.

I usually cook them but you can have them raw. I don't think it matters

Hi
I have just finished the 3 day diet. I have been drinking lots of water and lots of coffee! Finished it but I was so hungry at the end of it I had to have a BISCUIT!
My cousins started the diet with me and they ended up raiding the biscuit tin on day 2 after dinner, but they are really slim anyway! The last meal I couldn't eat as it was too much. I was craving for something sweet! My cousins had really bad headaches. I just ran to the loo alot, with all the water that I drank !

mary







PostPosted: May 21, 2005 6:55 PM 

Mel,
How much weight did you lose?

Mel







PostPosted: May 22, 2005 8:37 AM 

Over half a stone, I can see it more and I feel alot better. I'm going to try it again in a few days time.

Mel







PostPosted: May 22, 2005 8:41 AM 

I actually had the 3 day diet breakfast today, so I'm on my fourth day. Not hungry now, it's 2.38pm and I haven't had lunch yet. I have been cleaning alot and drinking lots of water - that really helps!
My cousins that did this diet got sore heads on the second night. I'm feeling quite good!
Would love to hear from you all x

Mary







PostPosted: May 22, 2005 1:47 PM 

Mel,
Wow! What great results. I usually only lose 1 1/2 to 2 pounds (14 pounds in a stone, I think). But I have been dieting for awhile so I think that is probably why I lose a little. But it is easy to follow so I do it three days a week each week for the last 3 weeks and have lost 5 pounds. I'm starting again tomorrow.

mellissa







PostPosted: May 22, 2005 2:12 PM 

can i use the foods on the list but in a different order? or do I have to do it to the letter? I dont want to eat moreor less I just want to eat different this together like bees and cotage cheese with egg, can I do that?

Mary







PostPosted: May 22, 2005 5:57 PM 

Mellissa,
I don't think so. Something about the chemicle make up of the foods and how they work together. But you could try it Hey its only three days. See if it works.
Hope that helps

cup is 4 oz in the uk

sue







PostPosted: May 25, 2005 8:04 AM 

i didn't lose much. i thought a cup of carrots meant 8oz but i see from the discussion that it's 4oz - is it weight measure or liquid measure.

Mel

It's the weight measure for the carrots etc

thanks.

I have been on the 3 day diet for 3 weeks. I started at 238, now Im at 228, on a 5'10 frame. Ive lost a total of 10 lbs. I do sometimes catch my self cheating. But not that bad, I have a bite of something I shouldn't have during the 3 days or have an extra serving of yougart or carrots. I don't mind losing the weight slowly, because according to the nutrition books .5-1 lb's a week is a healthy weight lose. I also exercise about 2-3 times a week.
Also I stretch my food out during the day, I don't have it at just at that particular time, plus I found a substition list somewhere on the net, because I can't handle beets, cottage cheese, and tuna. Well good luck to all of you.

PostPosted: May 25, 2005 9:29 PM 

where can i find that sub list i also cant handle those f0ods

Mary







PostPosted: May 26, 2005 7:10 AM 

I know you can substitute carrots for the beets. And the cottage cheese and tuna can be substituted for each other. For the cottage cheese try this -measure out the cup serving blend it in a blender with 1 equal or splenda and some cinnamon. It tastes really good and its not all lumpy.

j







PostPosted: May 27, 2005 12:52 AM 

OK SUBSTITUTIONS (BUT NOT RECOMMENDED)
INSTEAD OF: HAVE:
grapefruit orange
tuna cottage cheese (visa versa)
icecream frozen yogurt
cauliflower broccoli (visa versa)
green beans broccoli or cauliflower
carrots beets (who would want that!)
toast 5 crackers (visa versa)

ONLY SUSTITUDE 2 OR 3 ITEMS PER WEEK!

OK ADD-ON'S(THESE ARE REALLY HELPFUL)
lemon (and lots of it, if you like), a dash of salt and/or pepper, mustard, cooking spray, sweet & low or equal, tea, coffee, water

NO NO'S (THESE WILL KILL THE DIET)
mayo, oil, butter, sugar, milk or creamers, sodas or other drinks with sugar, bread, ketchup, or anything else!

Mary







PostPosted: June 1, 2005 6:22 AM 

Started yesterday again. This time no creamer in my coffee or lite salad dressing on my veggies as i suggests. I want to see if that really makes a difference in the weight lost. I usually lose 1 to 2 lbs.

Cee







PostPosted: June 3, 2005 1:16 PM 

i did the diet last week and lost about 5lbs. I then ate like there was no tomorrow because I was away from home. I felt sick eating so much. In 4 days I had gained the weight back. I then wanted to start it again and sliced my middle finger open on the can of tuna. GREAT! I had to give up on it that day as I was too upset from the terrible ordeal of seeing so much blood and layers of flesh...sorry to the faint hearted. So I ate like a pig again that day. I started again yesterday and I've lost 3lbs I think. The thing is I had ham instead of the chicken, and ham again tonight instead of beef franks. I simply don't know where to find BEEF franks. Have I done wrong? By the way good luck to everyone else.

Mary







PostPosted: June 7, 2005 6:12 AM 

Starting the diet again today. I only did it one day last week as I got sick. But I did lose 1 lb that day anyway. So I am trying it again.

This was said in one of the posts...but in the diet, it says that you should have toast. So...is bread okay or not?

Mary







PostPosted: June 9, 2005 7:20 AM 

Tara,
I think she must have meant extra bread. You must eat everything on the diet or the chemicle reaction won't occur that cause the weight loss.

PostPosted: June 23, 2005 11:24 AM 

Hello, Im looking to start this diet tomorrow and I had a few questions. Does the toast have to be dry? Does it have to be 'beef' franks? Regarding the '3 slices of meat", does that mean deli meat or can it be a beef steak (lean, of course)?
BTW, much luck to you, Ali, and to all of us looking to shed a few.

JC







PostPosted: June 23, 2005 11:34 AM 

Sorry, 1 more question:
Can the veggies be canned or do they have to be fresh?

Mary







PostPosted: June 23, 2005 2:40 PM 

The toast should be dry. If you used a little I can't believe its not butter spray I don't think that would hurt. The veggies should be either fresh or frozen as canned have a lot of sodium. It can be 3 slices of any lean meat. I usually use chicken, roast beef, or lean steak. Hope that helps you. Good luck!

PostPosted: June 25, 2005 6:01 PM 

can you drink alcohol on the three day diet? i havent cheated but will maybe vodka and club soda be bad?

JC







PostPosted: June 26, 2005 10:04 AM 

I certainly wouldnt. I have a copy of the diet that gives a few substitutes, but I use very few since I wanna see how this actually works. Adding "anything" can altar the results.

Im on day 3 now, and I wanna know (I realize this is a personal decision) if you would weigh yourself after the 3 days, or after the whole week is through?

marissa







PostPosted: June 26, 2005 1:16 PM 

Did anybody here lose 40 in a month. what is the most anybody here has lost????? I'm trying to lose the weight for my graduation pic cause i dont want to be this big in the pic also i want to fit in my clothes!!!!!!!!!!!!

JC







PostPosted: June 26, 2005 10:48 PM 

I just had my last meal on day 3. I hadnt weighed myself yet. I think I'll wait. But I will say that it wasnt easy. The only reason I got through it, folowed it to the letter and didnt cheat, was because I was already cutting down on my calorie intake and laying off the carbs for about a month. My job is very physical, and I was left hungry shortly after each meal.

PostPosted: June 28, 2005 4:12 PM 

Just started the diet yesterday. It wasn't that bad and I had lots of energy. Lost 2 1/2 lbs. I'm sure it was water but it's losing! Good luck everyone.

PostPosted: June 29, 2005 2:39 PM 

I am starting the diet again today... after the third day what do you eat and then how long do you wait until you can start again?

JC







PostPosted: June 29, 2005 11:56 PM 

On the 4th through 7th day, you eat reasonably. Low cal and low carb. Im sure excercise will help the weightloss along. You start the diet again on the 8th day.

PostPosted: June 30, 2005 11:39 AM 

I lost 48 pounds in 4 months on this diet last year. The trick is to drink plenty of water while on the diet and to not go overboard on the four days off. In fact, I've found that I don't eat as much on the days off as I would have otherwise becuase I just can't handle the portion sizes I used to have. Must be because my stomach shrank, or I just got used to eating such small portions. I've heard people complain about getting headaches while on the diet. I too started getting them, but found I wasn't drinking enough water. I also don't drink that much coffee or tea, but I'll have a couple of diet sodas during the day. I gained some of the weight back during the last half of last year as I was traveling a lot on business and not eating very healthy, so I just went back on it three weeks ago and have already lost 10 pounds. I find the first week on I lose 4-5 pounds, then 1-3 every week after.

Mikel







PostPosted: July 1, 2005 10:58 AM 

I am on third day and I have only loss 2lbs. I was hoping for more. It is my first time tring this diet. Is it not as effective on the first try?

PostPosted: July 3, 2005 8:37 PM 

I was on the diet last year and lost 25 pounds in 3 weeks(along with walking 5 miles a day) I plan to get on the diet wed. I NEED to lose 100lbs. by sept, wish me luck:)

JC







PostPosted: July 3, 2005 11:33 PM 

I wish you much luck, but 100lbs in 3 months isnt healthy. To lose weight sucessfully, it really needs to be more gradual. I did this diet for 1 week, simply to see what happens. I lost 2 1/2 lbs. I didnt do any extra excercising, but my work is very physical. If I did make that extra effort, I could have lost a little more. Thing of it is, we are all looking for that 1 thing that can make losing weight not only simple, but fast. Yes, you are likely to lose a good amount of weight at first, but then it will taper off.
Aside from lypo suction or stomach stapling, there simply is NO fast and simple way to take off weight.

I dont think it would make a difference if you poached the egg.
The kind of hotdog doesnt matter, although turkey would be best.
And I would use Light ice cream. I have found its actually pretty good.

BTW, typing in all caps is kinda bad internet etiquette.

I started the diet today and i'm already starving and its not even lunch time yet. Its hard for me cause i have a job that requires me to wake up early, so i am going about 7 hours between meals. I was wondering if you had to eat ALL the breakfast/lunch/dinner all at once or could u space it out, like have a coffee when u wake up and eat the toast a bit later and the grapefruit a bit later, or does it all have to be consumed at once? I'll post again at the end of the 3 days or the week and let u know how i did!
thanks!

Maybe with the hotdogs you can use soy dogs and with the meat you can use a vegi burger. I dont know how to replace the tuna. But since this diet supposably works with the chemical breakdown that each food gives, I dont know if any of this will work the same.

I used this diet plan a couple of years ago when someone I worked with told me about it. They were given the diet plan by a Dr. I had great success with it. I did workout regularly, though, and there are things that HAVE to be done to loose weight and keep it off.

1. First of DO NOT substitute things in this diet-eat exactly what it tells you to.

2.You HAVE to eat ALL of the food! I've been there, and believe me it's all you can do at dinner of day 3!

3.If you drink diet soda, make sure that it is CLEAR diet soda. The carmel coloring in soda turns to sugar in the body, and you are to have NO additional sugar during those 3 days!

4.I have not heard of using lowfat vanilla ice cream-I was told to eat regular vanilla ice cream.

5.You can salt and pepper your food to taste. There are no limitations on this.

6.Drink LOTS of water!

7.On the 4 days that you eat "regular food", DO NOT snack. You can have 3 meals that consist of WHATEVER YOU WANT. You will find that you will want to eat healthier anyway once the weight starts to come off.

8.For anyone who thinks that they should go on the diet for more than 3 days to loose more-DON'T!! The whole reason that you have those 4 days off is so that your body stays "used to" eating those foods, that way you don't gain the weight back when you go off of the diet.

And I know that everyones experience is different, but for the record I lost about 7 lbs. the first week, and about 2-4 each week after. And usually my 3 meals per day for those 4 days off was Burger King! It was the one weakness I had. Had I eaten healthier maybe I would have lost more. Point being-FOLLOW THE DIET!! If you do, it WILL work.

I've started today and feeling great but I love drinking cappuccino a lot and can't handle drinking coffee without milk. I know that the diet says black coffee but I'm just wondering if adding skim milk would ruin the the diet plan big time.

I do half an hour walk to burn off the milk anyway in order to make me feel better.I can't wait to weigh myself tomorrow morning.

Hello, I have started this diet yesterday... I am on day two havent cheated or anything....... So far lost 3 lbs yesterday...... Doing good... if you follow the diet the way it is and no substitutes or adding anything.. It looks like it will really work...... On the 4 off days im going to eat 1 egg in the morning 1 piece of toast and coffee ...for lunch i am going to eat a chicken sandwich with nothing on it and for dinner chicken or fish and some veggies... as long as i don't eat to get stuffed and just till i am content i know its going to work.... By the way.... if you drink a half a glass of water... you won't mistake thirst for hunger.. Okay.. good luck!

It gets pretty hard on the diet but just keep telling yourself its only 3 days LOL...I think it would probably help if you eat healthy on the 4 off days!

PostPosted: August 12, 2005 10:05 AM 

I dont know if beef franks can be substituted.. But peanut butter can be substituted for a boiled egg or a banana.. Coffee and tea is suppose to boost your metabolism becuase of the caffeine... so don't substitute it.

I'm having trouble with the measurements. When it says 'cup' exactly how much does that equate to, in grams, of each of the foods? I sure had a lot of ice-cream 2nite!

J







PostPosted: August 14, 2005 11:32 AM 

At last, found the information! Measuring in cup size is often confusing, so I am posting the EXACT values of weight for each food. Might give it a go tomorrow, although I'm currently losing 2 pounds every 4 days on my diet.

Day 1:
BREAKFAST:
Black tea/ coffee
1/2 grapefruit
1 slice toast
1 tspn peanut butter

LUNCH:
Black tea/ coffee
4oz tuna
1 slice toast

DINNER:
2 slices any cold meat
4 oz string beans
4oz carrots
1 small apple
4oz vanilla ice - cream

Day 2:
BREAKFAST:
Black tea/ coffee
1 egg
1 slice toast
1/2 banana

LUNCH:
4oz tuna
5 saltine crackers

DINNER:
2 hot dog sausages
3oz broccoli
2oz carrots
1/2 banana
2oz vanilla ice - cream

Day 3:
BREAKFAST:
Black tea/ coffee
5 saltine crackers
1 oz cheddar cheese
1 small apple

J,
You have a couple of things wrong on your food list. Dinner the first night is 3 oz of any lean meat, and shouldn't a 1/2 cup serving of the 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream be 4 ozs. (1 cup= 8 oz.), same for broccoli & carrots? If I am confused let me know.

J







PostPosted: August 15, 2005 12:41 AM 

Try weighing out 8 oz of icecream, then you'll realise that it cannot be right... that would equal about 3 cups. A 'cup' is a unit of volume, of which I just discovered doesn't mean equal weight. A cup of saphron is going to weigh less than a cup of lead. It's the density of the food that is the weight.

J

(p.s. Not trying to say lead is a food... that's just silly. lol)

My diet consists of 2 tins of tuna and vitamin tablets, it's not something I recommend at all! Therefore I am going to start this diet, as a kind of 'diet excursion', I shall keep you guys posted of my progress. p.s. I am too strong willed for my own good, so you can be sure the diet will be followed exactly.

Just finished the three day diet (weighing myself on day 4). I managed to lose 6.6 pounds!! Just for reference I am 18, 5 foot 10, and start weight was 71.5kg, finishing at 68.5kg. After the last meal I felt really hyper, has anyone else had the same feeling? All my muscles seemed to be in overtime on the evening of day 3. Very happy with the diet, and however it works, it's definately worth a try for sceptics.

what can i eat instead of the beef franks/hot dogs.

where can i get saltine crackers from i cant seem to find them anywhere. i bought some other crackers that have lower calories than the saltine crackers is this good enough?

btw i live in the uk

PostPosted: August 23, 2005 2:29 PM 

hey guys...It is my first week in this diet..n I am on day 2...
if I'm not follow the measurement exactly...is it useless?i mean u won't lose the weight?coz...i just approximate the measurement...ii follow it but...It can't be exactly the same right?
about the ice cream...2 oz means 50 grams something right?and it means 100 ml right?tell me if i am wrong thanks...

J







PostPosted: August 24, 2005 4:22 AM 

To Sam --> I just bought salted crackers (I live in the UK too), and they worked fine for me. It doesn't really matter about low cal/high cal, as the diet portions are small enough to discount the difference between high and low cal. BTW I looked for low fat icecream in the supermarket, and was shocked to find the 'low fat' icecream had more calories than regular.

To Mezz --> 2 oz is about 57 grams. If you use the list I posted, you needn't measure the ice-cream in ml, just use the scales.

PostPosted: August 26, 2005 1:01 PM 

My theory is that we are supposed to follow the diet basically 'to the letter' since its supposed to work with the chemical breakdown that each food item supplies. Unfortunately, unless you come across a scientific chemist on this board, your not gonna be able to get a definite answer as to what substitutes are ok or not ok.
What the diet should state is "lose up to 10 lbs". Everyone is gonna lose different amounts since we are all different. If a man does this diet with his wife and follows it the exact same way, its more likely that he will lose more weight simply because he is a man (faster metabolism). Age is serious factor as well. I noticed on a previous post by "J" that he/she lost 6.6 lbs. J is also only 18 years old! Our metabolism slows down as we get older (bummer, aint it?!) so it takes considerably more effort to lose weight.

J







PostPosted: August 27, 2005 6:46 AM 

I like your comments JC, the way I view the diet is that it actually corrects what could be a diet altered metabolism. By changing the daily calorie intake by a few hundred calories every day of the diet, the body finally gets the idea that the 'starvation effect' is not a method it can adopt. As the calorie intake changes, it cannot consider itself as starving, therefore works as per usual.

OK today is the 5th day when they say to weigh and... still 3 pounds total. 5 pounds total for husband, and 4 total for teenage daughter. Not even close to the supposed 10 pounds people claim to lose, but it is still pounds! I think I will do low carb, you dont starve and I lose faster, but this was worth a shot!

PostPosted: September 9, 2005 11:49 PM 

A cup is 8 oz. There is no question about it. Remember basic math? 8 ounces in a cup, 16 ounces in a pint, and 32 ounces in a quart? Look at your measuring cups. When measuring food or ice cream, either dry or liquid measuring cups will work.

J







PostPosted: September 12, 2005 12:34 AM 

Cathy,

Do you have a clue what 8 oz of icecream looks like??!! A cup in this diet is an indication of size, not weight. Please see my posting above for weights.

JC

1 tablespoon (tbsp) = 3 teaspoons (tsp)

1/4 cup = 4 tablespoons
1/3 cup = 5 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon
3/8 cup = 6 tablespoons
1/2 cup = 8 tablespoons
2/3 cup = 10 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons

PostPosted: September 13, 2005 12:40 AM 

Please, please, please do not have 8 oz of icecream on day 1. I used to think that that was the correct amount (but any idiot can see you cannot lose weight with that amount of icecream). Use these weights:

Day 1:
BREAKFAST:
Black tea/ coffee
1/2 grapefruit
1 slice toast
1 tspn peanut butter

LUNCH:
Black tea/ coffee
4oz tuna
1 slice toast

DINNER:
2 slices any cold meat
4 oz string beans
4oz carrots
1 small apple
4oz vanilla ice - cream

Day 2:
BREAKFAST:
Black tea/ coffee
1 egg
1 slice toast
1/2 banana

LUNCH:
4oz tuna
5 saltine crackers

DINNER:
2 hot dog sausages
3oz broccoli
2oz carrots
1/2 banana
2oz vanilla ice - cream

Day 3:
BREAKFAST:
Black tea/ coffee
5 saltine crackers
1 oz cheddar cheese
1 small apple

LUNCH:
Black coffee
1 hard - boiled egg
1 slice toast

DINNER:

4oz tuna
4oz carrots
4oz cauliflower
4 oz melon
2oz vanilla ice - cream

What about if you use a dry 1 cup measuring cup. Is that the correct amount? I believe you are talking about if you weigh it on a scale, right?

J







PostPosted: September 17, 2005 3:59 PM 

A cup is a unit of volume, although is sometimes assumed to be a certain weight of a certain food. If you measure everything as 1/2 cup or a cup in volume, then that's fine. A cup measurement is quite an old way of measuring, I have found, thus I have provided weights.

Hey Gul, ty so much for the advice, but guess what, I added two packets of sweet and low and also substituted the cottages cheese for tuna and still lost 10 pounds.

My friend lost 2 and a half stone on this diet (35lbs) but she didnt do it in a month, it took her 3 months.

Im on my 2nd day of the diet, feel hungry, have a head ache and feel dizzy/light headed but that could be down to not drinking enough, will stick with it.

I hate most the things on the diet, only thing i dont mind is tuna, toast, hot dogs and meat... but have been forcing myself to eat it all and if nothing else ive found out that I can eat peanut butter, egg, grapefruit, brocoli and not die or be sick! But the cauliflower might finish me off tomorrow! hehe

Only thing which worries me... when u come off the 3 days how do u not pile the weight back on in those 4 days? Im craving pizza and burger king!! Which are things i dont normally eat anyway!

Good luck everyone!

PostPosted: September 25, 2005 10:39 PM 

I started this diet today. I was given this diet years ago by a friend's mom. She'd lost 10lbs the first week and then 5 or so lbs each week after. I never tried it cuz I wasn't motivated. And then I'd totally forgotten about it until I ran across it will going through some old recipes. I'm getting married on November 13th and need to shed a few. I'm in the U.S. and the version I have is slightly different as far as amounts/serving sizes. Here's what I have (below). (I'll let you know how I do on it after day 3.)

Day 1:

Breakfast
Black coffee or tea
Half grapefruit
1 slice toast
2 tbsp. peanut butter

Lunch
Black coffee or tea
1/2 cup tuna
1 slice toast

Dinner
2 slices of any meat (about 3 oz)
1 cup of string beans
1 cup beets
1 small apple
1 cup vanilla ice cream

Day 2:

Breakfast
Black coffee or tea
1 egg
Half banana
1 slice toast

Lunch
1 cup cottage cheese
5 Saltine crackers

Dinner
2 hot dogs
1 cup broccoli
1/2 cup carrots
Half banana
1/2 cup vanilla ice cream

Day 3:

Breakfast
Black coffee or tea
5 Saltine crackers
1 slice cheddar cheese
1 small apple

Lunch
1 hard-boiled egg
1 slice toast

Dinner
1 cup of tuna
1 cup beets
1 cup cauliflower
Half cantaloupe or 1 cup frozen mixed fruit
1/2 vanilla ice cream

*Diet works on chemical breakdown and is proven. DO NOT vary or substitute any of the above foods. Salt and peper may be used - no other seasonings. When no quantity is given there are no restrictions other than common sense. This diet is to be used 3 days at a time.

In the 3 days you will lose 10lbs. After 3 days of dieting you can eat normal food, but do not over do it. After your 4 days of normal eating, start back on your 3 day diet. You can lose up to 40lbs in a month...if you stick to it.

This is a safe diet. REMEMBER - DO NOT SNACK BETWEEN MEALS!

PostPosted: September 27, 2005 3:28 PM 

So today is day 3...and I have to say that I'm feeling alittle deprived and hungry. Not too bad, but I'm definately looking forward to eating alittle more normal tomorrow. I'm craving a diet coke soooo bad! Someone said that you're suppose to wait to weigh yourself until 2 days after you finish (guess that would day 5), but I went a head and weighed in this morning anyways. I've lost 6lbs! I'm seriously suprised! I'm 5'8" and started at 226.5 and now I'm at 220.5. I suppose that the more you have to lose, the faster you will lose initially. And I've stuck to my version of the diet (above) with no substitutions (no extra spices or sweeteners, no lemon, no soda of any kind). I wonder if I can manage to keep it off? We'll see... I'll update you all on day 5.

Okay, so I finished up my 3-days yesterday and weighed in again today. Lost another 3 lbs! 9 all together!!! And I definately feel like I have more energy too. I'm going to do my best to watch my calorie intake on the 4 days off and then I'll start up again on Sunday. We'll see if it'll work again next time???

Hi All,
I lost 5 lbs. on first 3 day attempt. I am now on the second day of second 3 day attempt.This is not an easy diet, but seems to work for me, as I can't take more than a 3 day commitment. I am eating lighter & working out on the 4 days off. Good Luck to All & may we lose what we want to quickly & more importantly keep it off!

Hi,
I want to do this diet, but cannot get down coffee or tea? can I drink diet coke (w/caffeine) to get the jump start in the morning needed by your metabolism?

maybe you need to get a life, rather than wasting yours & everyone else's time writing a comment. Do you not have anything better to do at 8:40 in the morning? Grow up.

Hello All,
This morning was my first try at this diet. After doing more research today I am wondering if you need to eat the exact meals in succession. I had done this diet a few years ago, but the version I had said you could choose a breakfast, lunch, and dinner from a list and what you could substitute with what. (I have since lost this version) Is it bad if you eat the day two breakfast on day one and the day three dinner? I am so confused! Did I screw up?

djh







PostPosted: October 4, 2005 9:54 PM 

I am almost finished with dinner on day one. I am so full, it's going to take me two hours to get to the ice cream! UGH!

April







PostPosted: October 4, 2005 10:20 PM 

Just finished the first day!! Man, the ice cream tonight was the best!! I was actually ok all day until I got home from work..was kinda hungry and stomache was growling.but I held out and did not cheat!Tomm. Day 2!!

djh







PostPosted: October 6, 2005 12:30 PM 

Day 3 of the diet, I haven't weighed myself because I want to see the total number. I did realize that on day one, the measurements have to be off. "3 oz. of lean meat or chicken, 1 cup of green beans, 1 cup of carrots, 1 apple, and 1 cup of ice cream", this is more than I can fit in my stomach. Honestly it was like a fear factor challenge! For my next run at this diet next week, I will cut down to 1/2 cup of veggies and ice cream.

djh







PostPosted: October 7, 2005 10:22 AM 

I only exercised on day 1, but I did lose 4 pounds this week! My goal is 20 poinds, this is so much easier than anything I have ever tried.

April







PostPosted: October 7, 2005 6:58 PM 

Weighed myself this morning after my first 3 days...5 1/2 lbs!! I was so happy, trick is now to see what happens on these 4 days off. Long holiday weekend ..think I will start again on Monday and just take 3 days off this time that way I am on the Mon-Weds schedule.

JC







PostPosted: October 8, 2005 10:21 AM 

djh,
If you scroll up to Sept 13th, "J" posted the diet using different measurements since there was some disagreement regarding weight measurements to liquid. Maybe this will help you out.

scientific Calculator







PostPosted: October 9, 2005 11:02 PM 

Just using my scientific calculator, and since this diet is dictated in American volumetric measurements, wouldn't it make sense to translate it into metric volumetric measurements?

1 Cup = 236.6 ml or 8.3 UKoz (or half a pint)

(1/2 Cup is obviously half that)

1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) = 14 ml

3 oz (any meat, first dinner) = 89 ml

djh







PostPosted: October 10, 2005 3:40 PM 

JC,
The 1 cup measurements weren't confusing until I tried to eat all the food in one sitting. lol Maybe it weas because during the day you eat so little, then fill up with dinner. I was so hungry when I ate dinner that I probably ate too fast.

djh

April,

CONGRATULATIONS!
Like you, I tend to indulge on the weekends. Sad to say but I had Pizza and Beer Saturday night. I did gain back 2 pounds, but I am confident that eating healthier the rest of the week will not stump my progress too much. Plus I pulled the elleptical machine out of the garage into a room I am more likely to use it.

lwhite







PostPosted: October 10, 2005 8:19 PM 

HI
There is a lot of confusion about the 1 cup rule. is 1 cup 8oz or 4oz I know the US measurement is 8 oz but where did you get 4 oz from? That is not correct at all? is it? Anyways this is my 1st day and im a little hungry but not that much. Hope this works wish me luck? By the way is 3oz of chicken pre cooked weight or after cooking?

lwhite







PostPosted: October 10, 2005 8:22 PM 

I have heard that all you lose is water weight which is why you gain it back so fast. if that is the case do you look smaller as far as body mass or is your weight on the scale just different?

April







PostPosted: October 11, 2005 4:58 PM 

Yeah I also indulged a bit too much this weekend..lets see, I had some Chinese food Fri night...Sat I went to a b-day party then out for lots of drinks! Then Sunday I had pizza and yesterday lasgana..hahahaha, I also gained back 2 lbs. But I am back on the diet again today...and plan on not making a repeat of this past weekend next weekend, but have to have SOME fun. Best of luck this week!

Well djh i dont really sub them because until i came across this diet i guess there was never a need to?
Does any one wlse know what to sub the meat for?

PostPosted: October 13, 2005 1:12 PM 

Just started the 3-day diet today. I plan to follow it to the letter and on the 4 days off follow the Weight Watchers points system. I weigh 193 pounds and want to loose 50. I'll keep you posted.

PostPosted: October 13, 2005 4:42 PM 

After losing and regaining many times on Atkins, I started the 3 day diet yesterday. I started at 177 and when I weighed in this morning I was at 174. So 3 pounds the first day. I'm curious to see how the weightloss holds up. I'm addicted to the scale...lol...so we'll see how much it fluctuates. Yesterday was fairly easy with the exception of being hungry in the afternoon. Around 3 pm I was starving, but made some tea and that seemed to tide me over until dinner time. I'm already looking forward to having ice cream tonight!

Tonya







PostPosted: October 13, 2005 6:15 PM 

Sash, I do not know for sure. I am just guessing, but what about nuts? They are loaded with protein as in meat.

Vanessa







PostPosted: October 13, 2005 11:01 PM 

OMG, I love that you can have vanilla icecream... I like to cut up the piece of fruit that I'm to have at dinner time and put it in the icecream, since I never absolutely adored vanilla as it was. Having the vanilla icecream with the banana is my favorite. Looking foreward to desert sort of helps keep me going to be honest hehe. I found a way to love the "plain" tuna as well. =) I mix Rosemary into it thoroughly and it tastes great, especially on the toast like a sandwhich. I'm on my second day. Hehe, I'm not sure if I was supposed to but I took half the piece of bread, dipped it in egg and made french toast with it, without any butter or anything except the banana. And, resourceful as I am, I made the other half of egg into scrambled eggs and had the other half of bread as toast with the eggs. How elaborate...Maybe too elaborate...whatever though. I HATE COTTAGE CHEESE but I suffered through it since I didn't know I could interchange it with the tuna. Gosh darn. If anyone hates tuna even more than the cottage cheese though you should mix lemon in it. My specific diet says to have a cup of cottage cheese with half a banana for lunch so I just mixed it all up with the lemon too. Anyways, I hope that this works and that it isnt just because of water weight loss like some are saying...

Tonya







PostPosted: October 14, 2005 9:50 AM 

Well, I'm on day 2 and I weighed myself this morning and I lost 3 pounds. Now at 190. WooHoo! The ice cream makes it worth it. What a treat. But I was VERY hungry this morning before breakfast. Now I am satisfied after having and egg, toast, and 1/2 banana. I cracked the egg and put it in the microwave, kind of scrambled. I figure that is the same as a boiled egg since I mixed nothing with it but salt & pepper. You have to stir it frequently or it will be too done.
Hope the weight loss continues.

PostPosted: October 14, 2005 11:09 AM 

Well, girls, I just started day 3 and I'm down 4 pounds! YAY! Off to a good start.. I shouldn't have any trouble making it through today... I've been hungry.. but it does help looking forward to that ice cream! My only concern is not gaining any of the weight back over the 4 off days.. but I'm going to try real hard not to go over board!

April







PostPosted: October 14, 2005 5:33 PM 

Just finished day 3 of the 2nd week! Much easier this week, I was not as hungry...even today, it's a day that I can eat, I am not hungry! I lost another 2 lbs. this week, so I have now lost 7.5 lbs!! Don't think I will indulge as bad as I did last weekend. I am going out tonight tho w/the girls!!

Hi,

I've been on this diet for aprox. 3 1/2 weeks now. On 3 days off 4 of course and It's actually working for me! As of today I've lost 22lbs and hopefully will keep going since I have a lot to lose. Anyway mine is slightly different then the ones I've seen posted here and I'm not sure why. It's basically the same but here ya go.

Day 1
Breakfast
1/2 grapefruit or banana
1 slice bread (I use Heiners 35)
2 tbsp peanut butter
Lunch
1/2 cup tuna
1 slice bread
Dinner
two slices of meat (about 3 oz)
1 cup green beans
1 cup peas or carrots
1 small apple
1 cup lowfat frozen yogurt

Day 2
Breakfast
1 egg (I use eggbeaters, pretty good actually)
1/2 banana
1 slice bread
Lunch
1 slice lowfat cheese
5 crackers
Dinner
4oz chicken (usually baked or grilled)
1 cup broccolli
1/2 cup of carrots or peas
1/2 banana
1/2 cup lowfat frozen yogurt

Day 3
Breakfast
1 hard boiled egg
1 slice bread
Lunch
1 slice lowfat cheese
5 crackers
1 small apple
Dinner
4 oz piece of chicken
1 cup peas or carrots
1 cup cauliflower
1/2 cup of cantaloupe
1/2 cup lowfat frozen yogurt

At least 8 glasses of water per day of course. This one is also not as strict because it allows for some substitutions. And it also didn't say anything about no creamer. I have 2 to 3 cups of coffee every day with creamer and splenda and it hasn't hurt from what I could tell so I'm not giving it up! LOL

Instead of coffee/tea, you can have any type of diet drink. Also, you can add equal or any type of low fat sweetener to the coffee/tea. You can also substitute water.

You can't substitute everything on the diet..............but I think having the carrots both times is fine, I do sometimes.. The banana on the other hand I believe you can not sub.

PostPosted: December 5, 2005 10:21 PM 

I started the diet today. I used it years
ago and only got thru day 1 every time, but managed to lose about 2lbs a week that
way. I actually came across it again in Woman's World magazine. The article basically says there is no chemical breakdown..just that it equals 968 c. per day on average, and you tend to eat less on your days off. So overall, I suppose it
keeps your metabolism at optimal level. And you don't have the boredom of 1200c.
EVERY DAY. I'll keep you posted, this is sort of an experiment.

It's my second day of the diet and i'm doing really good with it. I'm actually finding it hard to finish all the food. There is only one problem I have and it's the cottage cheese, this is the first time I have tried it and I felt sick eating it. Other than that I think this might actually be possible for me.

I was introduced to this diet when I was 13 or 14 actually. My uncle was given the diet because of his high cholesterol. Me and my mom did it, but I remember the last day we pigged out on Brownies:) Well I am now 26, married with 2 kids. I went to the Dr.s today and I am 33 pounds over weight!! Never was I this heavy, not even during my pregnancies. I am determined to lose this weight. Wish me luck!!:)

PostPosted: December 20, 2005 10:06 PM 

This is the 2nd Day of my 3rd week on the Diet. I've lost 7lbs. I'm amazed, because it is Christmastime...I haven't been eating alot but I certainly eat whatever
I WANT on the 4 days off, just less than normal. I am going on a trip in a couple weeks so it has been easier to stick with.
Any other time I don't know if I'd have the motivation. Good Luck everyone.

Sarah, from what I heard, the ice cream is an important part of the diet.
I use the Heathy Choice, and it gives me something to look forward to. I save it for later as an evening snack.

I have tried this diet last year right before I became pregnant and I lost about 26 lbs. in one month. Then when I found out that I was pregnant, I figured that I was going to get fat so I stopped. Now my son is one, and I weigh 50 lbs. more than I did the day that I went into labor. I plan on going to Disney World at the end of march. I would like to lose at least 50lbs. or more before then!!!

Hello everyone. I have been reading a lot of positive things about this diet. I need to loose 50lbs, and I am very excited to get started.

I have a question though. I work 3rd shift and I am confused about whether I should start my breakfast when I get off of work or if I should have breakfast after I wake up? Any suggestions.

Can someone please tell me if you can sub the hot dogs for any other meat

Does anyone know if I can substitute the ice cream for half and half in my coffee? It is calcium and I don't use nearly 1/2 cup.

amy







PostPosted: January 6, 2006 7:25 AM 

or substitute 1/2 and 1/2 for the cheese on the 3rd day? What can the cheese possibly have that the isn't in the half and half?

Mary







PostPosted: January 6, 2006 8:24 AM 

After three days I am down 4 lbs. It was probably mostly water but I'll take it.

Amy- I always use half and half in one cup of coffee per day. I substituted chicken for the hot dogs this week and still lost 4 lbs.

Hey all, i have been doin this for awhile now and have seen results = ) yay! So far, i have lost about 15 lbs. which is good considering the fact that i may substitute...oops!

But all in all, it is like a weekly thing for me. It's great for my self to notice the difference and even greater for others to notice the change. I feel great and it pushes me to continue to lose an additional 10-15 lbs.

katie







PostPosted: January 6, 2006 5:18 PM 

i've heard it all....substitute here and there....don't substitute at all...no condiments...some condiments...etc.

i have one more meal left on day 3 and have lost 6 pounds. i have not substituted anything. actually, the diet i found said no salt either. after all this blandness, just using the basics like mustard and salt will be like heaven!

john







PostPosted: January 7, 2006 2:43 AM 

I did this diet five years ago and i lost alot of weight. Do not substitute anything in the list. I still remember the first week I lost 5 pounds, the second week I lost three. I was starting to get discouraged but, then again the third week I lost 9. So keep on don't give up. I stopped the diet because I got fed up with the same foods over and over. I am now restarting since I want to lose about 20 pounds. It's great to have a forum for this. Good luck everyone!

Jae







PostPosted: January 9, 2006 12:38 AM 

i'm planning on starting this diet this week, i really want to lose 20lbs by my birthday (5 months away) so i'm hoping this diet works for me, but i have a question or two. what's the best type of cottage cheese to buy? i've seen small curd, creamed....does it matter, or is it just whatever you prefer? i've never had it so someone please tell me what's better! lol! also does percentage matter? i've seen 1% and 4%....so if it does, which one is best? one more, can you honestly substitute the grapefruit with an orange? it's the only thing i cannot stand (not even the smell of it!). thanks and good luck everyone!

john







PostPosted: January 9, 2006 1:57 AM 

the type of cottage cheese doesn't matter. just make sure you eat only 1 cup. No, you can't substitute the grapefruit with an orange. Try to squeeze the juice of the grapefruit and drink it instead. that's what I do when I don't feel like eating the whole graprefruit.

Annie







PostPosted: January 9, 2006 5:09 PM 

Hi, everyone. I just discovered this forum today and want to put in my two cents. I lost 47 pounds doing this diet 2 years ago. Started at 244 lbs. and got down to 197. I lost 7 pounds the first week, then averaged about 2 a week. I never exercised and ate like crazy on my "days off." So I was amazed this diet worked so well. I dieted on Mon, Tues, and Wed, so I could always eat on the weekends. When I got down to about 200, things really slowed down. Now I still do the diet but just to maintain that weight. I know I need to start exercising -- just not motivated yet. You do have to follow the diet EXACTLY. My friend did it with me and only lost about 17 pounds, but she would cheat and not do the diet for weeks at a time, etc. Having those 4 days to look forward to really kept me focused on sticking out the 3 days of hell. My question to all of you is: Does anyone know where this diet originated and where we could get accurate information as far as how it works, substitutions, etc.? Someone mentioned an article in a womens' magazine. Did they describe at length anything about this diet?
Don't give up. I'm still stuck at 200, but at least I'm not inching my way to 250 like I was before. Each week I say I'll eat less on my 4 days off, and each week I don't. But I'm just glad I had this diet to at least keep me going in the right direction. I know myself well enough to know there's no diet I can stick to every day without feeling deprived. That's why this one is so great -- you always have those 4 days to just forget about every little thing you consume. Good luck, everyone.

Hi!
I am about to start this diet tomorrow for the first time (today I have to buy all of the stuff). I hope it works for me the way it has been working for a lot of you on this site. The only problem is that Im allergic to beets. I know that this diet probably works best with no substitutions, but that is the only change I would need to make. Does anyone know of something (maybe something already on the diet) that I can put in its place? I would really appreciate any advice I can get. The best of luck to all of you. :-)

Laurie







PostPosted: January 13, 2006 12:02 PM 

hi again!

When the diet calls for saltine crakers, can they be the unsalted tops?
Ive never been crazy about the slated top ones. :-) thanks out there to whom ever might know.
I wish everyone the best of luck and success at achieving your goal!!

The salt could prove crucial, as the diet could be considered to be based on chemical reactions. Just try it, sticck to it, and smile afterwards.

Mary







PostPosted: January 17, 2006 6:40 PM 

Laurie,

I know alot of people say don't substitute but if you need to you can interchange carrots and beets.
Started again today. Lost 4 lbs a couple of weeks ago and have kept it off. I plan on doing this every tues, wed, and thurs until I hit goal.

Laurie







PostPosted: January 18, 2006 11:34 AM 

Mary,

Thank you so much. The fact that I can substitute is a really great plus. Beets make me break out in a rash on my face and arms and itches like crazy! Now I can start this diet. I really need this to work. Glad to hear you were able to keep the 4lbs off. Good luck to you and everyone out there doing this diet! :-)

Laurie







PostPosted: January 18, 2006 11:38 AM

Thanks for the info. I really want to do this diet but the beets were my only concern. Im glad to hear that you have been able to keep the 4lbs off. I really hope you and everyone on this diet reach their goal.

Thanks again and wish me luck!!! :-)

I have just finished my second day of the three day diet, and so far i can honestly say that i havent cheated a single time (though ive thought about it). After the first day i had lost almost two lbs. I will weigh after ive completed the three days andletyou know how i finished.

Blondie







PostPosted: January 22, 2006 1:14 PM 

I started this diet yesterday, and haven't cheated yet. This might not seem like a big thing, but I normally eat @ 2500 calories a day. I'm not weighing myself this time, but after my four days off, I'll weigh myself and then do the three days again.

Annie







PostPosted: January 27, 2006 11:46 AM 

It's better to weigh in only once a week, the morning after the three days of dieting. If you weigh in after the four days of eating, you may see a slight gain and be too disillusioned to continue. My pattern seemed to be that I'd gain a pound or two after the 4 days, but lose 2-4 after the 3 days of dieting. Also, for us women, remember -- time of the month makes a difference also. I never lost anything the week before my periods, but would be down a little extra the following week. So plow through it and you should be OK.

Laura







PostPosted: January 28, 2006 10:42 AM 

Hi Everyone! I am so glad I found this forum - someone gave me the 3 day diet 'recipe' a year ago as she had lost 10 lbs in one week on it, but it just seemed to be too unrealistic for me and I decided not to try it...but now I have, and wanted to do some research first to see what people were saying about the diet. I looked all over the internet for reviews on the diet, but there are hardly any reviews out there - so I was happy to find this! And it seems to be working for most of you - I will try it and let you know how it goes - but I also plan on exercising - I already exercise 4 days a week, and think that is CRUCIAL to any weight loss program - even if it's just walking 30 minutes a day, this will help you!! Right now I'm at 190 and hope to eventually weigh 145-150. I am a little confused about the peanut butter and ice cream measurements - my sheet says it's 1 tablespoon of PB, and 1 cup of ice cream...but there were several discrepancies about this in the forum...do you think it really matters, cuz it seemed to be working either way for all of you...?

MB







PostPosted: January 28, 2006 5:52 PM 

I've read this ENTIRE page I still didn't get an answer to my question, to those of you who have lost weight did you actually feel slimmer? Or was is water weight or something.
I just started this diet today I'm pretty hungry, waiting for dinner

Mary







PostPosted: January 30, 2006 9:06 PM 

MB-I lost about 15 lbs on this diet a few years ago. I did feel thinner and I dropped one pant size but I eventually got sick of the food and quit. I slowly regained the 15 lbs. but am now restarting to lose again.

Laura-It is 1 tablespoon of pb and 1 cup measuring cup for dry measurements of ice cream. I just fill up the cup and then spoon it in a bowl. I think people got confused and tried to weigh out 8 oz of ice cream on a scale.

Hope that helps

Mara







PostPosted: January 31, 2006 12:52 PM 

to those who have tried this meal plan, have you experienced a tummy ache after each meals? you know.. the "bathroom calling" the worst one : deficating frequently...or maybe diarrhea/lbm? because if it does, i cant cut classes in school just to go to the comfort room. lol. please answer :)

Mary







PostPosted: February 2, 2006 6:28 PM 

I just completed diet yesterday and when I weighed in this morning I had lost 5 lbs. !!! Now I exercised a lot this week doing cardio and weights but I am very happy with 5 lbs. in three days.

Mara-I have never had any stomach problems with the diet. But are you lactose intoloerant because the cottage cheese would definitely effect that.

JJ







PostPosted: February 2, 2006 8:20 PM 

Is vanilla ice cream neccesary?

If so..why?

Annie







PostPosted: February 3, 2006 12:28 PM 

To MB: I DEFINITELY felt slimmer, as I ultimately lost 45 pounds on this diet. The first week may indeed be "water weight," but who cares? It gives you the incentive to go on and when you keep at it, you will lose real fat. My clothes felt much looser after a few weeks. This is not a quickie diet to shed a few pounds. It is a long-term regimen for people who have a lot of weight to lose. You will lose a lot at first, then it will slow down. After losing 45 lbs., I stopped losing, but then again, I never did any exercise. I know if I do that, I will lose more. Right now, the diet is just keeping me from gaining it back. I still think the 3 days are torture, but having those 4 "carefree" days really keeps me going. To JJ: Every element of this diet is necessary to make it work, from what I hear. It is the combination and ratio of the foods that apparently makes the difference. So I guess you must have the ice cream. I have mine later in the evening (a few hours after dinner) and it doesn't seem to make a difference. To Mara: Like Mary said, there is dairy in this diet every day (cottage cheese, ice cream, cheese) and you may be sensitive to lactose. I have irritable bowel and this diet actually helps this condition, I think because it has good fiber. I showed it to my doctor and he was impressed by how healthy it was. He said although it is pretty low in calories, it covers all the food groups and has lots of protein and fiber but warned not to do it longer than three days at a stretch. I think if you go longer, your metabolism slows down. When you start eating normally, it speeds back up again and actually burns up more energy. Hope this helps.

Remona







PostPosted: February 5, 2006 7:11 PM 

I started this diet on January 31. I stuck strictly to the diet sheet and I did indeed lose 10 pounds in those three days. I am counting on this diet to be my life saver as I was only 10 pounds away from weighing 250 pounds. I was so scared I am pushing it to say I am 5' 2". Which 240 pounds did not look good on. I was a very bad overeater and I also grazed all day. I did not get hungry on the 3 days and it is easy to stick to since you know that you will be off of it at the end of the three days. It keeps me from feel bored and depraved of all the foods that I enjoy. I did mind my manners on the days off as I have a 90 pound total goal. After my 3 day diet my upper stomach had shrunk and I had lost weight around my upper arm/chest area. You feel better all over mind and body and I actually had more energy. So to all of you who doubt it just stick to it. I am only 33 and I intend to use this diet to make me the person I so long to be!

Annie







PostPosted: February 6, 2006 11:38 AM 

Remona,
Congratulations, I'm glad the diet is working for you! Some people are disappointed that they don't lose 8 or 10 lbs. the first week, but they are only 20 or 30 pounds overweight. Obviously, the heavier you are when you start, the more you will lose the first week. You sound like me. When I hit 244, I felt like I was 80 years old. Stairs, bending down, getting out of bed were all a big ordeal. But with each pound lost, I realized I could move better and everything hurt less. I used to always feel a pressure in the top of my abdomen, which disappeared completely after the first month. I still have a ways to go, but it's the only program that I've been able to stick to (over 2 years now). You're right, it's easy to get through the 3 days, knowing the 4-day stretch is coming. You never have to give up anything, just postpone it. Keep it up and keep up posted.

Annie

Just because someone had asked earlier about the originations of this diet... this diet is given to patients with heart problems who need to lose weight very quickly so they can get heqart surgery. They give it to patients at the hospital my mother and aunt work in. Just started today. Finished lunch about an hour ago asnd haven't cheated yet. Will post to let you know how i do, and hopefully i'll have a positive response for someone who is skeptical about string this diet. But my theory is... it's only 3 days... what do you have to lose except the weight? you're certainly not gonna gain anymore.

I am going to start this diet over tomorrow. I was going to start this diet today, because I did not wake up until about 12:00 pm because this is my day off of work. I thought it would be easy for me to do it today because the day was already half way over, so I would really not be starving that much. But then I decided to wait because it is still the weekend and I know my husband will probably want to go somewhere and get something to eat and I would have to give into the temptation. I really have to lose weight because I weigh 225 lbs. and I went to the doctor and he done some blood work and he said that I was at a high risk of diabetes. I have a problem with sticking to a diet because I always say well, its ok if I mess up because I can just start over tomorrow, and tomorrow never comes for me because I always say that!

I've previously done it but thought it was about time i gave it another go.. last time i didn't stick to it religiously!

Well its the first day of a new month (and the first day of lent- not that i'm very religious) so the timing seems perfect- roll on easter! :)

i weigh 154lbs & i'm 5'7 so i know i probably won't be losing lots but any loss will be a happy one... especially as all my clothes either don't fit anymore or are very tight :(

Wish me luck! i will write again tomorrow with progress.

I have lost over 5 lbs and it's helped me to realize you don't need to eat a jumbo burger and fries to feel satified. america is over weight because of the large portions. we have to train ourselves.my anniversary is in May so I want to be down 50 lbs by then so I am going to stick to it.

PostPosted: March 2, 2006 4:35 PM 

Been reading the posts as I intend starting this diet next week! (Have a wedding this weekend so must wait til then)- Am bridesmaid at another wedding on March 16th and really need to shed about 10lbs-- Figure I can do the diet twice by then!!! Just a wee bit confused about portions and ingrediets. I know the american sites all give stuff in cups, or 4oz to us but they don't metion beetroot at all! The last time I did this, about 3 years ago I think beetroot was on twice! And is it 1 or 2 tablespoons of peanut butter on the first day? Are RITZ crackers ok for the cracker bit? Think that is all my questions? Oh, last one, is it 4oz of vanilla ice cream per day? Thanks

laura







PostPosted: March 2, 2006 5:15 PM 

to metoo , to answer your questions its 1 tbsp of peanut butter,one cup of vanilla ice cream one the first day the other two days its only half a cup.i dont have beetroot on my diet[thank god yuck!]good luck with the diet sounds like you have a busy month.

PostPosted: March 3, 2006 11:38 AM 

To Sarah Wilton: This diet is supposedly for people who need to lose a lot of weight. You will probably eventually lose the 7 pounds on this diet, but unfortunately, it will come back fast if you go off it. I guess if you are willing to keep doing the diet indefinitely just to maintain, it might work. All I know is, every time I go off it for a week or two, the pounds come back very quickly.

Hi everyone. Im happy to read that most, or at least some people here are having some sucess with this diet. I have started it today, but I just can not get down tuna or cottage cheese, no matter how much I try. I realize you are not suppose to substitute, but does anyone have any possible substitions for tuna and cottage cheese? Yuck! Or do you think it will make a huge difference if I just skip those teo things? Thanks!

Well I used a can of chicken instead of tuna once & once i put 10 cal fat free mayo in the tuna also. :) As for cottage cheese Im not sure I think u could do the chicken but try not to sub if u can help it. But I know how it is, lol. Good luck!

Well started this morning-- Tea fine, toast fine, grapefruit bitter (pink grapefruit, was that ok??) and the peanut butter almost made me gag!!! YUCK!

Lunch was fine the mini can of tuna in brine (assume that is ok, v low fat content!)

Now I have a 3oz lean steak on and will eat it with the green beans and 4oz of beetroot-- Does anyone else have beetroot on their diet or is mine a strange one? Then the apple and the icecream I will have later.

Was 135lbs this morning but with these bloody wedding coming up I would love to be about 126lbs. Think I may have left it a little too late!!! But even if I lost 3lbs this week and 3lbs next week that would at least be something--The other bridesmaids are about 5'10" and only weigh about 112lb each and the bride is lighter again!! AAAGHHHH

Anyway, one day almost done but I need to start drinking more water

Talk later and best of luck to everyone else on this mad cap quest!!!!

Annie I am so happy for your post. I hate it when people stop posting and you never know if the diet truly works in the long run. It gives me hope to know that I too can lose a great deal of weight as well! I'm currently 245lbs and want to lose exactly 100lbs. I have a wedding to attend in 3 months and will be ecstatic if the scale says anything below 220. So losing even 10lbs a month would be wonderful for me. And I definately will keep you all posted every week with my results all the way until I lose that magic number..100!

Hi all. I'm from South Carolina, USA and I am starting my secound 3-day round today. The first week I lost 7.5 lbs. I was thrilled! I ate moderately over the four days off but did eat what I wanted. I just didn't go overboard. When I weighed this morning I had lost another pound and a half. I feel that this diet will help me get into the life style of eating healthier. If I do this on my four days off then by the time I lose the weight (70lbs) I want to lose, I will be able to maintain. Wish me luck cause nothing else has worked so far. I have one question. Do you have to toast the bread or can you eat it plain.

PostPosted: March 7, 2006 10:46 AM 

Has anyone here actually done the diet with chicken substituted for tuna?

I'm just wondering if it works as well--this is my first time to try the diet and I hate hate hate tuna and have substituted canned chicken for it.

Ok....reading all these 1 to 2 lb weight loss stories is depressing me. I have been on the Akind diet for a few weeks untill i ended up with gout in my ankle and was told to stop eating so much fatty foods and meat by my doctor. My friend turned me on to this diet with the impression of loosing about 10 lbs a week.
i am curently 390 lbs (huge yes i know)and want to loose a total of 150 lbs.....100 lbs by july 6th for our family trip to florida. (im in ohio)
I just joined my cities rec center and have been exersizing for a little over a week now. I just started this diet today and will stick to it like glue. I quit smoking Jan 11th and havent had any fast food since that date also. i also gave up coffee due to the love of creamer. I realy hope to be the person that comes on in a week and say i lost more then 1 or 2 lbs. we will see.

Hey Guys! I am at the end of day two. As of this morning I had lost 2.5 lbs!

Why is it that people weigh less in the morning than the previous evening? I even weigh less 20 minutes after I have been awake as opposed to rolling out of bed and weighing in. Why is this? Gravity? Tired muscles?

Can you switch meals of the same day. Like can you eat your dinner at lunch and your lunch at dinner?

metoo







PostPosted: March 8, 2006 11:48 AM 

Well Day 3.

As of this morning I seem to have lost about 3.5lbs. This could just be readjusting for the weekend I had though, as I was at another wedding and pigged out!!! Anyway, any loss is good. If I could lose another lb or two I will be so well behaved for the next 4 days and start this again next Monday just in time to finish for the wedding where I am bridesmaid on Thursday!

Only did exercise on Monday and know it would be better if I could have done more.

One more question: How much water are we supposed to drink on this diet?

Thanks and best of luck to all!

Metoo- I think at least 4, 8oz glasses but I think the more the better.

Chinneymae- I have heard that you can do that, since it all boils down to low cals anyways, then some that believe its scientific say not too do that, so Im not really sure, sorry. :(

Hello all!! I just finished the 3 days and I lost 7 pounds!!!! I'm 5'8 and was 208 now I'm 201, I have a lot to lose at least 40 pounds. I'm sure that's why the 7 pounds came off so quickly. I did follow the diet exactly. I did not even cheat once. I won't lie to you and tell you it was easy. It was a struggle every minute of the day and especially the night. I'm starting it again today without taking a break. ( sure am looking forward to that peanut butter!!) I'll keep ya'll posted. Best of luck to everyone!!! pamela

Well everyone, I'm back.... just fighting this cold STILL & I am thankfully, almost well, still got a cough & some congestion, but I'm heading to the gym, no more waiting around, lol. I am happy that I havent gained any of my weight back while I've been sick, so thats a relief. Today is day 1 for me on my 3 day diet, so I'll let you all know whats up when I'm finished, I hope to lose AT LEAST 5lbs...

PostPosted: March 16, 2006 8:33 PM 

thank you mustlose. i have decided to take saturday off, friends are coming into town and we are bbq-ing because of this beautiful weather!! (coastal nc) i have gone down another 2 pounds, 199! haven't seen that since the morning of thanksgiving!! i credit it to drinking water (no diet sodas), having a minimum 40 lbs to lose, not eating after 6pm and having to go to my skinny sisters wedding on the beach may 19!! i have tried and tried this diet since 1988, after the first 3 days and 7 pounds i never could stick to it. so sunday will be the true test to see if i can go back on it after tasting that yummy food again. i will say that doing this diet made me realize that i don't need as much food as i thought i did. i'm trying to get in the mind set of "eating to live not living to eat" hope you kick that cold soon, best of luck to all, i will check in sunday or monday to let ya'll know how it's going. pamela

PostPosted: March 18, 2006 10:50 AM 

starting day 1 again, so far i have lost 30 pounds. i started to give up again and gained about 5 back, there's no way i'm gonna gain those 30 pounds back when i've been doing so well.i don't have that much more to lose, i have 30 more pounds to go.this has been the easiest plan i've done, i find i can stick with this one the best because i know in about a couple more days i can eat a chocolate bar [i love chocolate alot!]i don't feel deprived and i'm not as hungry when i go off for my 3 days.i find i eat better which doesen't make sense because you would figure on your days off you'd be so hungry that you would pig out.wish me luck.

it's easier to lay down than it is to get up.

pamela







PostPosted: March 18, 2006 1:32 PM 

hi laura, thanks for the words of encouragement! i couldn't wait to come on here till monday. i'm on day 7 with no cheating, down 2 more pounds 197! the true test will be to go under 195, that is the lowest i've been in almost 2 years, (since having my son.) i plan on taking a multivitiam as soon as i make it to the store. i know people are getting "worried" because i'm doing this diet without taking a break and thankyou for you concern but let me tell you, you would never believe what i have been doing to my body for the past two years! i am an emotional eater even a closet eater, i'll shove food in my face for whatever reason, even food i don't like till i am soo stuffed i can't mover. also i'm a junk food freak! if i drove by a fast food place my car would just end up in the drive thru, i'm not kidding, whether i was hungry or not. so i am really proud of myself for sticking to this and once i get down to a reasonable weight i will "eat normal". i know this is a struggle with so many people, just keep trying whether it's this diet or not. like i said it's a struggle with me every minute of the day, especially when my son has him yummy fantastic meals and treats. ps. i bought a bag of m&m's for my mother and had the bag overnight, i didn't even open it, believe me i wanted to tip that bag right over my mouth and eat every last one of them, i was so proud of myself handing over the bag unopened to her this morning and i think she was a little shocked!! love hearing from all you guys, best of luck, pamela

laura







PostPosted: March 19, 2006 7:50 AM 

WOW pamela I would have eaten that whole bag of m@m's i love chocolate alot[GOOD FOR YOU!] it's my one strong weakness, but than again since starting this plan it's getting easier to resist so much of it.I love reading your letters, my story sounds alot like yours.i to love junk food i'll eat for whatever reason, i love sugary junk.there's days it's alot harder than some, right now i'm at the point in my life that i need a change. i have a job that i have been at for 12 years i've had enough of it so that really makes temptation stronger.But i'm not a quitter so i'm gonna go for what i want and acomplish it!I've decided it's my year! I wish you all luck i know how hard this is.

PostPosted: March 20, 2006 9:17 AM 

hey guys, just checking in. i'm down another pound to 196! i did go off the diet yesterday instead of saturday like i planed. i got so mad at my baby's dad that i ate a personal pan pizza. i tell you when i'm that mad my body just goes into overdrive. i can't stop myself. (only with eating, nothing else, i think because i'm not a yeller or i don't throw things, so my only outlet is eating so believe me my son is not in harms way) i just want to push my feelings down, and for me they go down much better with a pizza! and to tell you the truth that pizza didn't even taste good this time but i sure finished it. i'm just so used to using food as an outlet. i guess i should be thankful it wasn't a large pizza! anyway i'll keep ya'll posted. thanks your letting me vent, off to have peanut butter toast! yummy, pamela

laura- your doing wonderful as well, keep it up! :D

I'll be starting again on mon, for SURE.

PostPosted: March 23, 2006 2:45 PM 

Hi mustlose, so sorry to hear about your dad and mom. my payers are with you and your family. and thank you also for your words of encouragement.

Hi laura, i know exactly what you are talking about not liking your job, you have to follow your heart and do what is best for you. i gained 90 (yes 90, not a typo!!) pounds in one year at a job i couldn't stand that i took in a different state than my family and friends!!! after i left and moved "back home" i lost 60 pounds in 6 months with not much effort!!!!


hey guys, its me again. i made it to 195! down 13 pounds in 12 days. now the true test begins. like i said i always reach 195 and give up. also i don't know if i mentioned that i went from 198 to 208 in a really short period of time, (about 2 weeks) that's why i think the weight came off rather quickly. anyway i stayed on the 3 day diet for the 12 days consecutively except for one person pan pizza. i'm going to stay on it till i can't take it anymore! but to tell you the truth i am kinda enjoying each meal, i can't believe it myself. i especially like the first day. the other two i just get by. i don't know if i mentioned that i'm a single mom and i only work 3 nights a week waitressing, so i think that also contributes to me being able to stick to this diet. i don't have to fix a nice dinner for a "husband" or worry about having a lot of food around the house. it was hard the first few days when i gave my son his meals and snacks but now i do it without any trouble. i don't even lick my fingers if i get some of his food on them!!!!! i will keep ya'll posted!!! best of luck to everyone!!!!!

PostPosted: April 13, 2006 6:33 AM 

hi justine, i don't know how fast you will that 12 pounds because you don't have much to lose. when i started i was 208 and needed to lose around 45 pounds so i think it would come off easier for me in the beginning. my first 3 days i lost 7 pounds. but let me tell you, from what i learned you can not cheat, not even a little bit and you have to eat everything on the menu i really think that some of my weight loss has to do with me only drinking water (no diet soda) and the couple cups of coffee. today was the end of my 3 days and i'm down another 3 pounds to 189!! i can't believe it. i love this diet. i did the calorie count on it and it comes to around 1200 (with the brands i use). so it's not to ridiculous. that's the low standard of what dietitians say to take in when you want to lose weight. best of luck to you, pamela

hi guys down to 187 from 208!!!! started march 15 till today april 16. went from a size 18-20 to a 13-14 as of today!!!

hi laura, and happy Easter to you as well. i have pretty much stayed on this 3 day diet for the full 30 days. i have gone off it, 3 times for just one day. the first time i went off it i had Mexican food for lunch and pizza for dinner. i gained 5 pounds that day. i really ate a lot. the next day i started the 3 day diet and was down the 5 pounds after those 3 days. the next time i went off it i had normal food, a tuna sandwich (if you can believe that! my mom made it, it was delicious). a can of speggitos (?), chex mix, and for breakfast peanut butter toast and grapefruit juice because i thought i was going to do the diet that day. i didn't gain any weight that day because i eat pretty early. i don't eat after 5pm, i know that really helps. i go to bed hungry, if you read my earlier post you will see that i have not done that in 2 years. i have gone to bed having to take tums pretty much everynight because i was in such discomfort from stuffing myself i had heartburn and an upset stomach. this morning i was down to 187!! i went to town with my mother and we went to a Chinese buffet!! it was delicious but i'm very disappointed with myself. of course i'm going to start tomorrow, and i can't wait to weigh myself in the morning so i won't do this again, i'm sure it will be at least 5 pounds of pure fat. i do exercise. i started 30 days ago on an elliptical trainer, (like a bike and stair stepper combined). i could only do 2 minutes and thought i was going to die. 30 days later i'm up to 25 minutes, split up, 15 minutes in the morning as soon as i get out of bed and 10 minutes in the evening before going to bed. plus i lift 10 pound weights 2 times a day, but only 25 lifts on each side. i started lifting with 2 cans of soup, about one pound each. but from MY opinion if your not ready to exercise just wait a little while. because cutting way down on eating and trying to exercise is so mentally and physically draining i think you should pick one and just do that for a least 2 weeks. like i said that's my opinion, i'm sure some people won't agree with that. (i don't want to offend anyone.) anyway best of luck to you. pamela

I just started this diet today. I really like to hear about how other people have succeeded on this plan. It's inspiring. I'm 5'3" and weigh around 160. I don't own a scale yet though. I have tried everything to lose weight, I've worked out religiously, and watched what I eat, nothing changes. I'm 27 and have always had a paunch (lower belly), as long as I can remember.My body hates change I guess. This is supposed to change the way the body deals with calories, correct? I hope my body gets the picture!

Hey Guys,

Its my last day today, i would not lie and say it was easy, it is hard

But i already am down 2lbs as of today morning (3rd day morning ).

Anyone who is looking for a fast weight loss, this diet is NOT for them

At first week when you try this diet , you lose at first week only water weight, and then you gain it if you leave the diet.

This should be an ongoing process, the first week you lose more, cause its not fat that going, the second week your metabolism starts using up the stored fat,

the 4 off days are very important, as it prevents you metabolism into going into starvation mode, once that is trigered you will lose weight fast but as soon as you quit the diet you will gain all that fat back.

Hey congrats on the loss XJ, altho my experience is somewhat diff from urs...I lost about 10lbs the 1st week, then there after I lose about 4-6lbs a week on it (when I stick to it, lol) & I've been on it for about 2 mos... I've lost almost 30lbs. I agree that the 1st week is water weight & that u should take the 4 days off, I know I do. BUT in those 4 days try eating low calorie/low fat... I eat between 1200-1600 cals on my off days. I think alot of it has to do w/how heavy you are. I am 5'6/female & started at 300lbs & as of today (my 2nd day on the 3DD) am 271 lbs. :D If your smaller then it prolly is about 2-4 lbs a week that u lose, but thats still really good. Anywho, I just wanted to throw my experience & a diff perspective out there, I'm not saying urs is wrong, b/c everyones differnt. Keep up the good work & welcome to all the new dieters!

MustLose, you are very inspiring, way to go! I've read a lot of reviews about the 3DD, it isn't doctor reccomended but people say it works. I have tried everything else to lose weight. Working out and eating right for 6 months, only cheating twice, and nothing changed, it's so disheartening. I do eat healthy regularly, but I think my body may need this low calorie "shock". I'm definitely going to try it for a month and see what happens. I should probably invest in a scale, but I hope to see the difference in the fit of my clothes!!

Just a few comments about what I have read on some posts here. My doctor totally approved this diet. It has all the food groups and good fiber. However, this is called a 3-day diet because that is all you do at one time. It's 3 days on, 4 days off. You shouldn't keep going after the 3 days because your metabolism will slow down from the lack of calories and go into starvation mode, meaning weight loss will come to a halt. Eating normally on the four days off (I try to stay around 2000 calories) actually gets your metabolism back up again before it has a chance to slow down. Also, please don't weigh in more than once a week. You may actually gain a pound or two after your days off, which would be discouraging. If you only weigh in on the morning of your first day off, that's when you will see results. Then forget about it until the same day the following week. Also, this is not the best diet for someone who only needs to lose 10-20 pounds. You will gain it right back when you stop. This is a long-term diet for those who have a lot to lose. After that, it can maintain the weight loss for you. I lost 46 pounds a year ago with no exercise and now the diet keeps me from gaining it back. I started at 244 and am now under 200. I know if I start exercising, I can lose more, but I'm just thankful I can keep the weight from creeping back on. Hope this helps some of you. Good luck.

It's my third day of my first week. I definitely feel a little different. I think I may buy a scale tonight so I can weigh myself in the morning.

Annie, why did you stop losing if you were still on the diet? Does the body adapt to it quite easily? 46 pounds is awesome though, way to go! I hope to lose 30 pounds by August or late July. I have a lot of hope(and will power) for this, as my body hasn't responded to anything else!!

Hi! This is my second week on the diet, the scale says that I lost .2 pounds. That's hardly anything, I wondered if it was because I was PMSing this week. I didn't cheat at all, but does anyone know if that has an effect on the results? Thanks for any input!!

laura







PostPosted: April 27, 2006 11:42 AM 

j yes pms does make a differance for some including me.also when i start this plan i don't really see any results until i've been on it aleast a couple times ,thats how my body is and always was , it doesn't matter what kind of plan i've done i never lose weight until aleast a couple of weeks of being on any plan.i really like this plan. it does work, don't give up believe me it will work.

PostPosted: April 28, 2006 12:55 PM 

I love this diet. I have lost 5 pounds in 3 days and I'm thinking cause I'm PMSing. (BAD CRAMPS)The only problem that I have is drinking water and exercing. I have to force myself. On the 3rd day for supper u could eat esparagus. My friends dad is over weight and he's having heart surgury and the doc has esparagus on the diet plan. Today is my last day and the next four days I will just eat baked chicken and veggies. GOOD LUCK TO ALL.

I need some motivation, how is everyone losing weight doing this except me? I don't cheat at all, so what's up? Has anyone taken a long time to lose any weight? This is my third week, I've lost 2 pounds in that time. Is it because I drank beer last weekend?

laura







PostPosted: May 3, 2006 2:50 PM 

j are you doing any exercising? i walk for about 45 minutes to an hour after supper walk fast.keep at it some people just take a little longer, once it starts it will keep comimg off.are you drinking 4-8 cups of water? the colder the better.

J







PostPosted: May 4, 2006 11:22 AM 

I haven't done a lot of exercise. I get light-headed during the 3 days. I am going to start doing more though. This week I didn't lose anything, but I didn't gain either. I guess I'll try it for two more weeks and see what happens. I do drink the water, I love it. I'm off to exercise!! thanks laura

laura







PostPosted: May 4, 2006 1:45 PM 

j be sure not to overeat on your days off but enjoy some of your favorite foods.i drank on the weekends here and there and still lost weight although i dont eat anything the next day not until supper time,[to hung over]good luck with this plan.

PostPosted: May 6, 2006 2:40 AM 

this is the first day of my second week, so far I have lost about 5 pounds. I weigh 130 lbs and my target is 110 lbs. I tried atkins diet before, it truly worked but I had constipation while doing it. I like this diet because I only suffer for 3 days a week. I think after I hit my target weight, I will try to eat less sweet and carb, hope I can fit in those size 4 clothes again :)

PostPosted: May 8, 2006 10:23 PM 

Hi Pamala, I was just wondering, I did my first 3 days and lost 10 lbs, but only took one day off, and then started it again today (so my diet days will be mon, tues, and wed, and not over the weekend!)...I think i read in one of your previous posts that you do the diet without taking days off, and I was wondering if you still loose weight? Other people's posts say that the 4 days off are necessary? (In the futur I will take the 4 days off, but just this once I only took 1 day off)...Just wondering, Im new to this diet :) Congrats on your weight loss!

I find hotdogs absolutely offensive, and there's no way I can down two of them, no buns, no ketchup, etc. Is there anything else you can have in their place?

lovelylowery2







PostPosted: May 26, 2006 12:49 PM 

I just got done doing the 3 day diet and I lost 5 lbs in the 3 days. I also did a lot of substitution. I don't eat hotdogs or can barely stand raw tuna so I replace those foods with chicken and turkey. And I still got good results. For those of you looking for substitutions I found this

IF YOU MUST SUBSTITUTE ITEMS, THE FOLLOWING ARE ACCEPTABLE. YOU ARE LIMITED 3 SUBSTITUTIONS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE 3-DAY DIET MENU.
Grapefruit: Pink grapefruit or an orange
Peanut Butter: Boiled or poached egg or banana
Cauliflower: Lettuce, cabbage, or broccoli
Tuna: Skinless chicken, turkey, or fish (avoid breaded fish and shellfish)
Yogurt: 4-6 ozs. Ice milk or skim milk
Cottage Cheese: Non-fat vanilla yogurt or 2 ozs. lowfat cheese
Broccoli: Cauliflower, cabbage, or lettuce
Cantaloupe: Watermelon, honeydew, melon, peaches, or pears
Eggs: 4-6 ozs. skim milk or 1 cup lowfat vanilla yogurt

I forgot the website, I will list it when I find it. I do plan to do this diet for atleast a month I will post every week. On my off days I will be concious of what I eat, be healthy as possible and exercise to keep it up

PostPosted: May 27, 2006 3:23 AM 

HI! I'm 27, from Ecuador, South America. I've always struggled with my weight, always 10 to 20 pounds overweight. I have tried every diet you've ever heard of: Atkins, Scarsdale,low cal,low carb,high fat, low fat,only fruits,liquid diet,fat loss for idiots, etc. With every diet I saw results, I even reached my goal weight several times (125-127lbs.) but as soon as I got there, I somehow started eating again and gained it back. I know that compared to some of you, I don't have that much to lose, but believe me it's hard for me too. My sister is stick thin, she never diets, and she is 6 years older than me and has 2 children!! Some are luckier, I guess. I am married now (no children yet) I'm 5'5 and around 135-140lbs. I'm not sure because I hate to weigh myself. I only check my clothes and know if I lost or gained weight. So, not to bore you anymore with my story, I tried this diet many years ago and lost a lot of weight on it. Now I want to try it again. I have a party to go to next thursday, I wish I can be slimmer by then. I will start the 3 day diet on monday. Wish me luck, thank you all for sharing, it helps a lot, you have motivated me.

PostPosted: May 27, 2006 10:19 AM 

This diet seems to be very low fat, yet on the second day you eat 2 beef franks with approx. 19 grams of fat each 38 grams of fat in 2 How does that really fit in this?

KAYE... You can have mustard with your hotdogs.

lovelylowery2







PostPosted: May 27, 2006 12:48 PM 

meee- from what I read I think it is all about the calorie intake and not as much as the fat intake, the diet works because with it you only consume about 1000 calories a day, and that low cal intake it what really gets the weigh off. People have said that small amount of calorie intake will put your body in starvation mode which automatically makes your body burn stored fat and therefore lose weight

fattymc- yes you can have mustard along with

You can add any of these spices and condiments: salt, herbs, lemon, pepper, vinegar, Worcestershire, soy sauce, mustard & ketchup to your foods.

I have looked up alot of info concerning this diet

meee







PostPosted: May 27, 2006 1:54 PM 

Lovely, I'm going to ask you because you said you looked up a lot on this, I have done some reading and find a lot of conflicting things. All I want to know is on the 3rd day, dinner. I DON'T WANT TUNA again. What did you read on the chicken breast theory instead of tuna?

meee







PostPosted: May 27, 2006 3:00 PM 

Or, If anyone else knows for sure! Can you sub chicken breast for tuna? and the website that states it. Thanks

Hi everybody

Its so good tosee so many people supporting each other in the tough most quest of weight loss.
I am like most of you,trying to lose weight..and hope to do so.
Just started with the diet in the morning,to tell you honestly it was not as difficult as i thought.Although i felt that i have stuffed myself with all the mentioned things.
Can somebody advise that is it necessary to eat e'thing on the plan.If you are full in less can you avoid something?

Thanks

elinor







PostPosted: June 5, 2006 12:03 PM 

The only problem i have with the diet is i get really hungry between dinner and tea because you dont seem to be allowed as much!
tried it couple of weeks ago and only lost 2 1/2 lbs, so i am trying again!!!

PostPosted: June 6, 2006 11:27 AM 

Hi everyone, Im back.... I know its been a while.... I've been studying to be a CNA & its just been tough but not weight gain, so Im still at 275... I am starting the 3 days back tommorrow morning, I'll let ya know how it goes ok? Later...

PostPosted: June 7, 2006 8:53 PM 

from 208 to 177!!!

hi everyone!!!! sorry i haven't checked in in a while. i've been very busy with traveling and going to my sisters wedding!! (the whole reason i started this diet.) i am down to 177 from 208!! i'm in a size 12 from a size 20!!!! i really haven't been on this diet for a few weeks because everything has been so hectic. but thanks to this diet i have learned that i don't need to eat that much to survive! i started the first day of the diet today and messed up after dinner. i was doing so good and was looking forward to staying on this diet everyday till i get to my goal weight,
about 15 to 20 more pounds. guess i'll just try again tomorrow. it kills me to know how great this diet works and that i'm not able to stick to it at times. like i've mentioned before i am such an emotional eater, (i'm sure 99% of the population is too!!!) so when i get stressed i immediately go for the yummy stuff. (i have a 2 year old, so unfortunately i have a lot of treats around.) any way best of luck to all of you guys, keep up the good work... i'll keep ya'll posted. pamela

Lisha







PostPosted: June 9, 2006 9:27 AM 

I really hope this diet continues to work...It's day #4 and so far I have lost 5 lbs!!

Lunchtime is the hardest for me,but I've learned to manage. I have to be on
my feet alot at work so my mouth tends to get dry so I have a few sugar-free peppermints which also helps with my craving for sugar.

Then around 9pm when I get the hungries I just have a tall glass of tea with lemon juice and artificial sweetner.

This diet takes alot of self control,but to me it's worth it for these kind of results!

The 3 day diet I have is a little bit varied from the one posted here. It's bad enough to eat tuna when you don't like it (I put lots of lemon juice and pepper on it),but my diet doesn't have hotdogs on it...I eat the lowest sodium lunchmeat I can find usually turkey it has less than 200grams.

Also no soda not even diet and carrots or peas(not beets). I don't think it matters if the veggies are fresh or cooked because I've used canned carrots.lowfat frozen yogurt instead of ice cream.

If you want the best results follow this diet the best that you can and don't eat sugar,chocolate,fried foods, or salty foods. You can use lemon juice and pepper to season foods. I'm choosing not to use salt because that's what does alot of us in.

Good Luck Everyone!

Congrats Pamela. how long have you been on this diet? do you ever change it up week by week or do you just follow it the way it says? i've lost 10 pounds so far i started 2 weeks ago..but i dont really see a difference i guess it's because i got 40 to lose. well congrats again!

pamela







PostPosted: June 15, 2006 3:57 PM 

hi posh. great job on the 10 pounds!! i stay on the diet without taking the 4 days off (as long as i can handle it!). the best i did was to stay on it for a full 30 days and i lost 20 pounds in one month. i didn't have any side effects, like constipation, feeling week or feeling like i was starving to death. i started out at 208 and went to 187 in the 30 days, that was mar 17 to april 18. i am now 179 as of this morning. so it has taken me 2 months to lose an additional 8 pounds. i have had some binges, unfortunately in the last few weeks. i have been on this diet for 4 days now and don't plan on going off it till i get to 160. well, i'm sure i will have some slip ups before i reach my goal weight but this is the diet i will use to get there.

don't get discouraged. 10 pounds in two weeks is wonderful, as long as your body can handle it. before i started this diet i lost 5 pounds in 5 weeks watching everything i put in my mouth!!!! talk about being discouraged. i was so upset with that i ate non stop till i found this diet. so if i only lose 2 pounds in one week i'm ecstatic!!!! oh yea, to answer your question i don't change up the diet. i eat excatly what it says. best of luck to you,,,,,,pamela

PostPosted: June 20, 2006 11:30 AM 

posh are you geeting ready to start your period? that will cause weight gain, dont worry about it keep on going with the diet plan,you WILL hit some bad weigh ins but as long as you keep at it it will come off! sometimes drinking more water will help, the more water the better. i know i lose alot faster when i get the water i need and more. and its just your fat fighting you it doesnt want to go it tries to tempt you to eat more.go with the flow, your in control!

You can use red hot. Any spice, mustard, hot sauce etc. Just avoid anything with fats or oils.......at least thats what I understand from all I have read about it.

im on my third day, but i cheated big time yesterday by skipping lunch and dinner and eating triscuits with cottage cheese for a snack.. and then i went to my girlfriends house and she fed me some chicken and roasted vegetables for dinner at 11pm then i ate two klondikes and a paletta for dessert :X.

annnd i havent been on a regular sleep schedule. i woke up at 2pm on the 2nd day causing me to get off track.

but i woke up today at 12 and weighed myself and i lost 3 pounds. but i know if i have one more regular meal im gonna get that weight back!

ill start this diet again in two days. but in the meantime ill still eat health-concious.

to all of you , i started this plan 2 weeks ago and i lost 7 lbs. i loose 3 lbs every time i do this plan. i do this plan for three days than i take 2 days off not 4.i find taking off 2 days instead of 3-4 does alot better.im gonna keep this up until i reach my goal weight of 135-140. when i started i weighed in at 192 as of today i weigh 185.yah for me!i do walk everyday at a really hard pace and i drink alot of water.i wish i could lose 5-10 lbs every time i do this plan but thats just the way i lose, at least its coming off. i hope this letter helps someone out there.

DO NOT TRY THIS DIET , AFTER U LOSE THE WEIGHT IT WILLC OME BACK ON YOU BECAUSE ITS ONLY WATER WEIGHT AND THE ONLY WAY IT DONT COME BACK IS IF YOU DARN NEAR STARVE YOURSELF FOR THE FOUR DAYS YOUR OFF AND STAY BELOW 1000 CALORIES ANYTHING ABOVE THAT , THE WEIGHT WILL COME BACK , SO THE ONLY WAY TO ACHIEVE 10LBS IN THREE DDAYS IS LIKE SHAN SHAN SAYS EAT RIGHT EXCERCISE , AND IT WILL SHED IT SELF OFF QUICKER IF YOUR BIGGER AND SLOWER IF YOUR SMALLER , SO FAKE LEFT AND FAKE RIGHT AND KEEP RUNNING FOR SUCCES

hey all wassup ,
well i also finished this diet two days ago i started oddly on a sunday morning and finished it on tuesday and i too worked out for 30 minutes per day , and did crunches and lifted dumbbells , and i was amazed with the results , ok here we go , sunday before i ate breakfast i was 205 , then monday morning i did not weigh in , i waited until wednesday morning once i was completely done , so i weighed in wednesday morning at 190 lbs so i dropped `15 lbs on this diet , um , it s hard as hell though but i made it , AND CONGRATULATIONS NADAAAAAAA , when i first read this entire forum i thought everyone was lying until i tried it for my self , and i agree with someone who said the cauliflower was nasty as ever i could not digest it , so i ate a little bit of it tasted like something old and rotten lol , also , i ate regurlarly yesterday i ate maryland fried chicken strips and fries , with beans and rolls and tea , for dinner , forgot what i had for breakfast and i ate some chips , pies and soda yesterday and my weight remained at 190 so , im happy but will eat better the rest of the week , good day all

hi all just bought me an eliptical about 2 hours ago from sears they set up and delivered it , and i have gotten my first workout in and now i see what u guys mean i did it for the 30 minutes and burned 625 calories , on level 10 so im happy now

pamela







PostPosted: August 24, 2006 3:52 PM 

thought i'd just throw this in here, i bought a elliptical from wal-mart for $219.00 (that was as much as i could afford) and i am so happy with it. i had to put it together myself but the instructions were very easy to understand and the big parts were already together.

i did this diet back around march or april because i was desperate to lose weight for my skinny sister's wedding and lost 25 pounds in 30 days . it has been around 4 months and i have not put the weight back on. i still need to lose 20 more. even though i KNOW how GOOD this diet works i can't get myself to stay on it!! i'm planning on starting sept 1 for another 30 days. i'll keep ya'll posted. best of luck to everyone!! pamela

Sarah







PostPosted: August 25, 2006 11:46 AM 

To Pamela:

Did you workout as well or it was just the diet?
the other quetion is,if you kept the diet for 3 days a week or longer.

Thanks
Sarah

pamela







PostPosted: August 26, 2006 12:41 PM 

hi sarah

i stayed on the diet for 30 days, not taking the 4 day break. i calculated the food i ate on this diet and it came to around 1200 calories, which is what some diet doctors recommend for losing weight, so i wasn't too worried about "starving" myself to death!! i did have a few mess-ups along the way, i either continued the diet with the next meal or started over the next day.

i didn't exercise in the beginning because i have found over the years that exercising makes me soooooo hungry soon after i have finished, i would eat anything and everything in sight. but after a few weeks i had so much energy that i felt like i had to release it. so i bought an elliptical machine and started with 1 minute (really that is all i could handle) after about 2 weeks i got up to 30 minutes, 15 minutes twice a day. also i worked out to gilad (?) in the mornings on the fitness channel. it's body sculpting so it was so easy and the results were amazing. if he did something i couldn't do i would just do it my way.

best of luck to you, i can't wait till sept 1!! that is when my "monthly" will be over and i can not and will not start a diet during that time, i would lose my mind!!

Congratulation on your lost. Unfortunately I just finished my three days but just 2lb. Last time was so good I lost 9lb. I have no idea what I did wrong. I can not do more than three days. How do you motivate yourself Pamela?
I'll try again on Tuesday for 3 days.Wish me luck:)

PostPosted: September 2, 2006 5:34 PM 

ok all , i restarted this diet for 10 days now and have dropped 22 lbs , in the 10days , but what i have noticed is that i pea sooooooooo much , so i ll say some of it may be water weight also , i noticed that my stomach is much flatter BUT Saggy a little , so now i gotta work hard to tone that up , and last but not least i got my sister on it and she was a brat the entire time she did it for one day and gave up but in the one day she lost 5 lbs , not sure why she stopped though she couldnt take the foods , so goodluck to you all , im on day 11 on this diet , still holding strong , hoping for 40 in 20 days ,

bionca







PostPosted: September 3, 2006 12:05 PM 

one thing i did was this and maybe this will work i do the three day diet but i do it in a 1 day diet meaning , the first time i did it the first day i lost 5 lbs so i said to myself if what i ate the first day caused me to drop 5lbs why not eat the exact same thing everyday and dont do the other two days just eat the same thing every single day until u reach your weight lost , i mean 22 lbs in 10 days im not complaining but that s what im doing and obviously its working , hope this helps some of u

PostPosted: September 3, 2006 3:51 PM 

Hi all,
I couple of questions and I really appreciate yous comments on them:
first of all is it possible to substitute Cottage cheese for Tuna(sometimes), I personally found that the first day eating is more effective for me in term of losing but even thinking of eating Tuna every day make me depress but losing 20lb in 10 day well worth it.
My second question basically rely on your experiment with the diet. I have to lose 40lb in total. Do you think I will lose like 10lb as well. I'll start it again tomorrow and will keep it for 10 days.
I calculate its point value base in weight watchers and the whole day is worth 20 points which is the exact amount of point that I have to maintain to lose according to weight watchers diet for my weight range.
I wish everyone best luck and I hope G.d gives us all the willpower to lose the excess weight.
Sarah

bionca







PostPosted: September 4, 2006 12:46 AM 

ok sarah heres my thing I DONT SUBSTITUTE NOTHING I JUST DO THE FIRST DAY OVER AND OVER AGAIN, in between if you wanna take a break try the advantage vanilla shakes by atkins omg there delicious , right in walmart in the cream colored box 4 cans for 5.96 and to me they taste just like a vanilla milkshake and the thing about tuna , to me everything on the list was good except the cauliflower , so thats why instead of doing those other days stick to that first day which was more effective , and add some pepper to that tuna it may taste a bit better or warm it up and taste the difference , and yes 20 in 10 is doable , just on YOUR OFF DAYS BE VERY VERY CAREFUL , CAUSE THAT WEIGHT WIL SNEAK BACK ON U , SO I WOULD DO THE LIQUID THING , AND SHAKES JUST UNTIL YOU REACH YOUR WEIGHT LOSS GOAL WITH THIS DIET, well best of luck all

I am on the first day! So far so good! I did it last week and did pretty good. I did mess up a bit on the last day, but I did still lose 4 lbs. I didn't eat all that much on the 4 off days but I did put back on 2 lbs :-( I am trying again though and hope i do better....

hey guys. sorry to say i "fell off the wagon". my cousin came into town unexpectedly and we stayed up all night for 3 nights eating and talking, he just got back from one year in Iraq, so i don't regret it at all. gaining 5 pounds is nothing compared to what he has gone through. i'm starting again tomorrow. see how hard it is to stick to? i know i can lose 25 pounds in 30 days and i can't get myself to stick to it, darn it!!!!!!! i'll keep ya'll posted. best of luck......pamela

hi crystal, congrats on getting married!! my sisters wedding was the whole reason i started this diet. she gave me 6 months notice and i did not start dieting until i had less than 2 months left. i lost 25 pounds in that time on this diet. it works soooo good but it is such a hard diet to stick to. i wish i had another deadline, maybe it would make me stick to it!!! here is the version of the diet i go by. i have noticed that there is a few out there with a little differences. i have found that i have to eat every single thing listed and drink the coffee for this diet to really work. use the one that works for you. best of luck!!

3 day diet
Instructions:
*lose up to 10 pounds in 3 days
*around 1,200 calories a day
*diet for 3 days, 4 days off, start 3 days again....but i try to repeat the 3 days until i can't stand it anymore. gone a long as 30 days and lost 25 pounds.
*Drink 4 glasses of water or diet soda per day.
*You can add herbs, salt, pepper, lemon, vinegar, Worcestershire, soy sauce, mustard & ketchup to your foods.
*i use i can't believe it's not butter spray for the veggies.
*it seems to me that it is much better if you have a set time for each meal everyday. i try to make it 9am, 1pm, 5pm. other wise you are so hungry you'll just grab anything and shove it in your mouth!!
*if at all possible weigh yourself on the beginning of the first day and not till the 4th day. for some reason i gain a couple pounds the first or second day and by the end of the 3rd i've usually lost around 7 pounds!!
good luck!!!!!

On the second day now! The first day went by pretty quick, although, i was a little hungry last night. The only problem I have is - WORK! It is one of our guys b-day 2day and the boss wants to take him out to lunch. It is almost impossible to do this diet on days like this!! Sucks.. I hope we have to call off lunch for some reason! I'm doing to good to blow it on lunch on only the SECOND day! :-(

Pizza- no - crystal and i are not the same person- you are correct- that would be pointless.....
On my 3rd day today! Woke up and weighed myself and it looks like I've lost 5 lbs so far :-) Hopefully more will fall off today! We'll see. I probably shouldn't have weighed myself this morning though. I need to learn to wait until the 4th day to weigh myself but thats hard to do!

bionca







PostPosted: September 7, 2006 11:43 AM 

ok , the pizza test at dominoes is tonight , i dont htink im going , i ll just keep myself in a NO FAIL ENVIRONMENT well i just bought some shake about 4 cases , ok i weighed in today a total of 6 lbs in three days , and im still going at it i thought i was gonna stop the diet today but im on it again , still so this i my fourth day straight , i know if i complete it by friday then on the weekends do the shakes , that about 10 to 12 lbs will be gone by monday , us woman should form a better support group , like reminding each other of what we should and should not be doing ,maybe calling one another and catching you with that cookie !! in your hand and encourage you to put it down , that its not worth it , although i like others have had to battle the weight on my own and im doing it , i had absolutely no support , seems like my mom gets jealous when i lose weight and the fact that im smaller than her now, so not much support there , then my husband trains people everyday to get in shape in the military but yet he FORGETS ALL ABOUT ME , how ironic is that oh well , good day all

ok you guys i did end up taking the kids to get the pizza , but instead of sitting in which u cant do at dominoes i ordered them both and gave each one to them and they ate there whole entire small pizza with 8 slices a piece , and NO I WAS NOT TEMPTED BY IT AT ALL , tomorrow im coming off the diet in a way , im gonna do a shake by atkins tomorrow morning then for snack some fruit , then lunch a shake then dinner some brocolli from the 3day diet with chedder cheese melted on it from the 3day diet , and that will be it , i feel like this , the only way to get to my goals is take this thing and serious and dont slack off at all besides i want to eat to live and not live to eat , and i know if i can obtain with this diet , then i can definately do tomorrow and everyday after with no problem , so ladies keep is in formed on your progree , and lets set a goal for ourselves , my birthday is sept 21 and i set my goal for 24 lbs i started monday so im down 6 with 18 left to go in 14days and i know that will be doable , i will report tomorrows weigh in , since this is my fourth day on the diet , keep u guys informed ,

PostPosted: September 7, 2006 11:10 PM 

To: dumb me
That is sort of what happened to be on the second round of the diet. I ate like carzy although I was not that hungry. I just thought that I have to eat. You know I GAIN:( and I was very sad and I thought it was very unfair that one day not on the diet and I have to gain but when I went out with my skinny friends,I realized that this is what they do all the time. At least my skinny friends don't eat that much maybe a little more but not like even the days that I am just watching not to eat a lot. Do not be disappointed, that is an expensive experience for you. Try to learn from it.
Good luck

hey guys, on my second day. my mom and me are in a "competition" till sunday morning it's making it a little more fun. we both weigh about the same, me 186, her 184 so this should be interesting i gave this diet to my mom's neighbor and she has already lost 20 pounds. she is so happy and her sprits are way up!!! i'm looking at her for inspiration, believe me i need it.

to all you guys that have messed up even on the first day, it's normal, it sucks but it's normal. don't beat yourself up too much for it. this diet is very very hard and very restricting! after eating you have had nothing that has satisfied you, no pizza, no chocolate, no nothing, just a sense that you put something in your stomach, it might as well be cardboard!! the only thing you can do is plan on starting the next day. remember if this diet were easy we all would be a size "8"!!!!!!! and we wouldn't be in the company of such great people on here!!!!

day 2 and holding!!! pamela started 208/present186/hopefully165!!!!

thanks jessica , i use to be ashamed of that weight , 271 but now since i have lost it im proud to say where i came from , it was so sad that i when i went to the military ball with my husband three years ago there wasnt a store that had my size in dresses i finally found one store and the dress was a size 28 and guess what it fitted me perfectly , and now that same dress falls to the floor , and i just shake my head and say wow i never realized i was actually that FAT i use to cover it and say i was thickalicious , but had to come to reality and know that i was FAT , but thanks jessica , my husband ball is coming up in november again , and he wants me to go and if i decide to go , i bet i wont have NOOOOO PROBLEMS IN FINDING A DRESS THIS TIME ,

I am starting this diet today. I am doing frozen fat free yogurt istead of the vanilla ice cream. I will follow the rest the way it is. I did this last year and everytime I did it I would lose anywhere from 3-6 pounds. I want to lose 30 pounds. I am doing cardio 6x's a week and weights 3x's a week as well as ab workouts. I will keep everyone posted of my results on Friday September 22, 2006. Good Luck to everyone else.

I just finished my first day of the 3 day diet. I did not eat meat for dinner. I had an egg instead. But I did do the green beans, carrots, apple and ice cream. I also DO NOT do tuna (I substitute for cottage cheese). I did 1 hour of cardio. Today was not hard because I have been trying to eat healthy for the past 2 weeks and have gone down 2 pounds. I just need a jumpstart to lose these 30-35 pounds. The message board looks dead, but I'll keep posting until Friday. Good Luck to anyone trying this.

well i lost 5lbs today and i am so happy. however today is my fouth day and i ate a bowl of ceral. ok two bowl of ceral and for breakfast i had two scamable eggs and crackers and coffee. the hardness part of this
diet is the off days. all of us need to come up with a list of meal that we can eat on hour off day. its ok to cheat but not everyday. we all have to get into that health mode and start eating health on our off days. i am certain that we can keep the weight off. i am 182 today and my ideal weight is 150. so we will see!

Glo







PostPosted: September 25, 2006 4:54 PM 

I actually gained 1.6 pounds after the 3rd day. I am assuming it is the effect of the weight training. I have not done it for too long, so the muscle has to get use to it. I also read that the muscle breaks and the muscle holds water until it heals. I am actually not upset. I will keep doing exercise and trying to eat healthy. I dont think I'll try this diet no time soon.

Denden,.congratulations on those 5 pounds. Be careful and do not overeat because you will gain those 5 pounds back. On my off days I use to try to stay between 1200-1500 calories of food consisting of whole grains, like cereal, oatmeal and also only drink skim milk and as far as for cheese it has to be fat free or reduced fat. For dinner I do alot of lean cuisine or healthy choice...fruits for snack. Good Luck

For those of you who try to figure out the measurements of the food, try to do it from http://www.calorie-count.com, I searched different food on the diet list and the weight of 1 cup of carrot is actually different from 1 cup of cauliflower, so maybe you should consider checking it first.

PostPosted: November 9, 2006 12:09 AM 

how can this diet possibly be safe. loosing weight the safe way is to loose approx 2pounds a week no more then that otherwise your NOT loosing your body fat. only way this would work is if you all stay healthy afterwards or go on another diet like weight watchers. me myself im at 235pounds i hate it but i want a diet that will loose ur fat not water. but if anyone cant correct me feel free.... im open to listen..

laura







PostPosted: November 10, 2006 10:02 AM 

leash, doing this plan you will lose weight. for me i used it as a jump start, after that i just ate less of the sugary stuff and more healthy stuff.i could not and will not live on this plan alone! its a great start,but after awhile you cant keep this up. i do go back on this once in awhile when i start to gain, about every two months or so. i have lost 30 pounds on this plan and kept if off,i just eat right and exercise. but lets face it we all go through a spell were we just eat junk like around birthdays , holidays etc; so i just go through a couple of weeks on this plan to get me back on track. this paln is not a way of life but it is good to get you right back on track, you learn to eat less of what you dont need. you dont get as hungry after a while you learn to eat because your hungry not because you just want to stuff your face. i hope this helps you i weighed 190 now i weigh 160, i feel great i would like to lose more but if i dont im happy the way i am at this weight.

I'm wondering if I can substitute the tuna for 2 thin slices of smoke turkey?

I also wonder if it's OK to repeat day 1 for all 3 days and get the same results?

PostPosted: November 26, 2006 10:30 PM 

hi. im starting today and i wanna ask if anyone knows if there's any side effect doing this? like on the bones or cardio? also what i did today was i took a dietary pill this morning after eating the Day 1 breakfast.. i know this is not good but i have to do it so i wont get hungry. I drink lots of water... also can i substitute grapefruit with raisins instead?

PostPosted: November 27, 2006 1:22 AM 

hey guys,

i need help. can i use the canned tuna for lunch. i only bought it from the grocery store. i chose "flakes in oil" but i drained the oil/sauce and eat only the tuna flakes. is there a difference? also can i support myself with multivitamins? also can i substitute coffee with iced tea?
is it ok?

Mary







PostPosted: November 28, 2006 7:02 AM 

Meg,

Try not to substitute anything. You can have iced tea if it has no sugar in it. There are no side effects that I know of. But do only stay on it for three days at a time or it can be harmful to your metabolism. The tuna should be packed in water not oil. Next time try to find that kind. HTH

PostPosted: November 28, 2006 11:51 PM 

ok il try to find 'real tuna'. im skipping drinking coffee at lunch time intead, i drink plenty of water. My heart palpitates a lot when i drink to much coffee so i only drink it in the morning. would it make any difference? i haven't check my weight but i feel a little lighter now. im on my 3rd day now.

Mary







PostPosted: November 30, 2006 7:09 AM 

Meg,
I only drink the coffee in the morning. I only drink decaf anyway. I can't handle the caffinne.

meg







PostPosted: December 11, 2006 1:26 AM 

tnx mary. that's what i did now. i skip drinking coffee except on mornings.drink lots of water also. i have finish the 3 day diet last Nov 27-29 and i lose 7lbs. but i gained it back last week. now im starting again and definitely have to be strict on my diet for 3 consecutive weeks... mary, can i just skip instead of replacing some of the food indicated for every meal? like not eating sting beans or brocolli?

PostPosted: December 13, 2006 6:26 PM 

everyone out their trying to lose weight like me, i feel your pain, anger. it took us a life time to gain it and i think we can wait a few months or years to lose it. this diet is just for you to get motavated for atleast a month and then you must eat healthy to keep it off. who cares about big macs and kfc that all make you gain weight, eating healthy is better for you in the long run. i know its not easy but when ever you can just do exsersice and move more think of your health and you future. think of your children if you have any and make it a life time thing. dont make it an ongoing subject just make it your life. dont say im on a diet or stuff like that because beleive me your closest freinds dont wish you to be better than them in losing weight. i used to go to family and freinds and when they offer me somthing to eat and i say no, they sya are you on a diet" i hated that word and said no and just ait the thing out of anger when i didnt realy feel like eating i. So thats wrong the next time that happens to me im goning to say NO IM NOT ON A DIET, IM JUST NOT HUNGERY I HAD SOMTHING TO EAT ON MY WAY HERE". that will save me a few pounds.Anyway please all take care of your bodys because when we et old no one will be able to carry us and help us through. Youve only got yourself, love you body and beleive me you will get there but be pataint and dont expect it to happen over night. Also when you see that youve lost somthing dont treat yourself to food as a reward, go and buy yourself a new outfit. Dont let anyo0ne let you down be proud of yourself in and out. Us tring to lose weight is just a good thing we are doing for wur selfs and our bodys not so we can be MISS UNIVERSE. I love "me" but im helping "me", have more energy and life. I dont want to die like this. me getting into a size 14-16 is more than enough for me. Anyway dont eat in your four days of fatty food and then say that the 3 day diet dosnt work, eat healthy and beleive me it will work, good luck all.

can i add sugar to the tea

AMY







PostPosted: December 22, 2006 6:21 AM 

hi, amelia you can only take artaficial sugar with tea or coffee.
i havent done the diet since the 14th i only did it once and started my second time and then we had a tragic death in my family which made me to upset, and i have still kept the weight off and even lost a tiny bit more one my own, even after eating anything on the wrong times, i just lost track and ate when ever i felt like it. anyway i will start again in a couple of days just till i get my head back on track.
please try it it wont hurt and if you do it propley it will hel you loose a lot of weight as in fat not water. just have faith in yourselfs and in what you want and it will work, never say i cannot do it. Be posative.

Amelia







PostPosted: December 23, 2006 12:30 AM 

Hi, Amy thanks for helping me out. Well i'm starting the diet today and i'll keep you guys posted! I want to lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks and if i'm lucky 25-30pounds:-P, keep your fingers crossed for me!

AMY







PostPosted: December 25, 2006 2:29 AM 

HI, AMELIA, HOW DID YOU GO SO FAR, I HAVENT STARTED IT AGAIN AND I FEEL LIKE CRAP AT THE MOMENT. I FEEL AS THOUGH I SHOULD BE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT MY WEIGHT AND IM JUST SITTING AROUND. THE DEATH IN MY FAMILY HAS SHOCKED ALL OF US AND HAS PUT A HUGE AFFECT ON OUR DAY TO DAY LIVING, I EVEN LEFT MY WASHING FOR FIE DAYS UNWASHED. HOPFULY I WILL START IN A FEW DAYS. OHH BY THE WAY I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A WONDERFUL XMAS AND HAVE A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR. AND IM VERY PROUD OF THE ONES THAT ARE TRYING THIS DIET ON THE HOLIDAYS BECAUSE ITS NOT EASY TO DO IT ON TIMES LIKE THIS, SO I GIVE YOU ALLL TEN OUT OF TEN FOR YOUR EFFORT.
PLEASE WISH ME LUCK FOR WHEN I START AGAIN AND ALWAYS REMEMBER AFTER YOU FINISH PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT OVER EAT OR EAT JUNK FOOD ITS NOT WORTH IT IN THE END, ALL YOU ARE DOING IS HARMING YOURSELF AND YOUR FUTURE AND YOUR HEALTH. THINK POSITIVE AND THINK THIN.
YOU CAN ALL DO IT IF YOU HAVE FAITH IN YOURSELFS. BEING OVERWIGHT IS AN AWFAL FEELING AND NOT GOOD, I DONT WISH IT ON ANYONE. I WISH THE WORLD WAS ALL THIN WOMEN AND MEN BUT ITS NOT SO WE AS HUMANS NEED TO HELP OURSELFS ON DOING WHAT WE LOVE MOST. "WHY DO WE GO OUT OF OUR WAY TO GO AND BUY A BIG MAC OR STAY HOURS COOKING SO WE CAN EAT OR SPEND HEAPS OF MONEY ON JUNK FOOD"
AND WE CANNOT THINK OF OURSELFS ITS CHEAPER TO EAT HEALTHY, YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW MUCH YOU CAN SAVE ON SHOPPING BILLS IF YOU EAT SMART. GOOD LUCK AGAIN HAVE FAITH AND LIVE IT NOT JUST DREAM IT. MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOU ALL MY FRIENDS ON THE DICUSSION BOARD. AMY

Hi Marsha,

Did your aunt do it for three days and then take four days off. Also, has anyone tried those diet pills (Rapid Slim)mentioned in one of the ealier posts.

AMY







PostPosted: December 28, 2006 3:44 AM 

HI, ANT, YOU CAN EAT COTTAGE CHEESE INSDEAD OF THE TUNA AND CORROTS INSDEAD OF THE BEETS, I EVEN EAT CHICKEN BREAST INSDEAD OF THE FRANKS,
BUT I FORCE MYSELF TO EAT THE EGG. ANYWAY, TO MARSHA IM INTERESTED TO KNOW IF YOUR AUNT DID IT 3 YES AND 4 NO OR WHAT WAS THE CASE.
ITS INTERESTING TO HEAR OTHERS STORYS. IVE JUST STARTED IT AGAIN AND NOW I JUST FINNISH MY SECOND DAY, I FEEL FINE I THINK YOU GET USED TO THE IDEA OF EATING LESS YOUR STOMACH STARTS TO SHRINK AND CAN ONLY HOLD A SERTAIN AMOUNT OF FOOD, BUT WHEN WE OVER EAT WE AR JUST EXPANDING THE SIZE OF OUR TUMMYS TO FIT MORE AND MORE FOOD, SO EAT LESS ON THE DAYS OFF.

Ant







PostPosted: December 28, 2006 10:52 PM 

Thanks, Amy. I will try that. Today was my third day and I never get through the 3rd day dinner. I always eat something else for dinner because I don't want to eat tuna again. I bought a weight watcher meal and ate that. I am going to exercise tonight, just so the weight doesn't creep back. By the way I lost 6lbs. Good luck everyone. Keep posting it's very inspiring. Happy Holidays!!!

Sarah







PostPosted: December 28, 2006 11:52 PM 

Hi Ant,

First of all congradulation on your lost.
I want to know if you have to lose a lot of weight or not?
Because 6lb seems a lot of weight to me in 3 days.
I want to lose 30lb and I am going to start tomorrow.
Good Luck

Ant

PostPosted: December 29, 2006 3:09 AM 

HI EVERYONE, I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT HOW COME ON THIS DIET A PERSON CAN DO AS IT SAYS TO THE BOOK EVEN IF WE SUBSTATUE THINGS WE ARE STILL DOING IT RIGHT. AND WHEN IT CAME TO A NORMAL DAY WE CANNOT EAT SENSABLY, I THINK ITS ALL IN THE HEAD IF A PERSON MAKES THERE OWN DEIT PLAN AND STICK TO IT THEY WILL LOOSE WIEGHT. I KNOW THIS DIET WORKS BUT A PERSON CANNOT LIVE LIKE THIS FOREVER ITS JUST TO START THEM OFF. AND THEN THEY NEED TO DO IT ON THEIR OWN. SO THINK OF EATING LESS EVERDAY OF YOUR LIFE NOT JUST 3DAYS OR 4 DAYS. WE ARE JUST THE UNLUCKY ONES WHAT EVER WE PUT IN OUR MOUTHS WE GAIN WEIGHT. I HAVE A BEST FREIND THAT EATS NON STOP EVEN FATTY FOODS LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW AND SHE IS THIN AS A STICK.
'I JUST NEED TO LOOK AT FOOD AND THE WEIGHT IS ON ME. SO I NEED TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT THAT IS MY BODY AND I NEED TO DO SOMTHING ABOUT IT, SO THE ONLY THING I CAN DO IS EAT SMART AND RIGHT. IF YOU HAVE DIBETIS YOU CANNOT EAT A LOT OF SUGAR AND IF YOU ARE HIGH IN COLESTAROL YOU HAVE TO CUT DOWN ON FATTY FOOD. AND IF YOU ARE ELERGICT TO NUTS YOU STOP THEM COMPLETALY. SO THIS IS JUST ONE OF LIFES UPS AND WE NEED TO HELP OURSELFS TO BECOME WHAT WE WANT.
I HAVE BEEN OVER WEIGHT ALL MY LIFE AND BEEN ON HEAPS OF DEITS AND LOST ALOT BUT I NEVER STUCK TO EATING RIGHT. I JUST LOST TRACK IN TIME, AND THAT WAS THE WRONG THING TO DO IF I HAD BEEN SMART FROM DAY ONE MY BODY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN LIKE THIS. BUT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I THINK OF THE WORD FUTURE AND ITS MAKING FEEL MORE AND MORE DETERMAND TO LOOSE WEIGHT.
JUST PUT IT IN YOUR HEAD THAT THIS IS YOUR NEW LIFE NOW AND YOU WILL LOOSE IT ALSO MOOVE MORE DAONT JUST SIT DOWN AND DO NOTHING. THIS DIET IS GOOD BUT ITS NOT A LIFE TIME THING SO MAKE YOUR SELF A NEW PLAN THAT SUITS YOU AND LIFE IT NOT JUST DREAM IT. I WISH EVERONE ON THIS PAGE GOOD LUCK AND REMEMBER ITS YOU THAT CAN DO IT NOT ANYONE ELSE CAN DO IT FOR YOU. EAT SMART MOOVE MORE AND FEEL LIKE A MILLION DOLLARS. BE PROUD OF EVERDAY THAT GOES BY AND YOU ATE WELL. BUY NEW CLOTHES PUT MAKUP ON AND LOOK GREAT NO MATTER HAW BIG YOU ARE. AND IN TIME IF YOU DO THE RIGHT THING YOU WILL BE THAT THIN WOMAN YOU HAVE BEEN DREAMING OF. BUT REMEMBER WHAT EVER YOU LOOSE YOU WILL GAIN IT ALL BACK AGAIN AND MORE IF YOU DONT WATCH OUT WHAT YOU EAT. IF YOU DO THE RIGHT THING YOU WILL KEEP IT OF FOR GOOD, SORRY I KEEP REPEATING MYSELF BUT I FEEL THAT I NEED TO REMIND YOU OVER AND OVER AGAIN BECAUSE I DONT WANT THE SAME MISTAKE I DID TO HAPPEN TO YOU ALL. WE ARE HUMANS AND WE CRAVE AND WE LUST, BUT IT DOESNT NEED TO BE ALL ABOUT FOOD AND JUNK. BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT WE ARE EATING JUNK, SUGAR, FAT ,OEL AND THINGS THAT ARE YUMMY BUT NOT NECCACARY. EVERTIME I EAT SOMTHING FATTY OR JUNK FOOD I FEEL THE GUILT AND I FEEL SICK, SO WHY PUT YOUR BODY THROUGH MISSERY WHEN YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPY BY SAYING NO NO NO NO!.
I USED TO GO TO WEDDINGS AND EAT HEAPS BUT THE LAST WEDDING I WENT TO I ATE A BIT BY BIT WHICH MADE ME FEEL GREAT AND COMFORTABLE BY THE END OF THE NIGHT NOT A BLOWTED TUMMY. SO ALWAYS THINK OF THE OUT CAME BEFORE YOU EAT SOMETHING NOT NECCACERY. THINK OF YOUR LIFE AND YOUR FUTURE. I THANK ALL OF YOU FOR READING MY POST. HAVE A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR AND MAKE EVERY YEAR A WONDERFUL ONE WITH NEW RULES TO YOUR EATING HABBITS. GOOD LUCK AND I WILL POST TOMMORROW TO TELL YOU THE RESAULS FOR THE FINAL 3DAYS.

Hello everybody and Happy New Year from Puerto Rico. I read all the messages posted and I find them very inspiring.(specially bionica's story). I've been heavy practically all my life (23 years old now)and people can be cruel. I feel that it is so important for me to make a change in my life. I can't even find nice clothes that girls my age wear that could fit me. Also I finish my BA this year in Criminal Justice and have to lose weight to get a good job in that field. I'm tired of feeling depressed and ugly because of my weight. Today I decided to take the step. I'm starting the 3 day diet (continued as long as i can take it) today weighing 280 lbs. on a 5' 8" frame. My goal weight is 165-160lbs by August 1st because then I'll be starting my Internship with the Division of Crime Scene Investigation of the Puerto Rico Police Department. Well everybody, here it goes. Wish me luck...and good luck to all on your resolutions !!!

I am starting the 3 day diet today. Its 11am..I have not ate breakfast yet. I will post my results. I am doing the bowflex workout. My plans are to follow their menu plan for the 4 days I am off and then do the 3 day diet again. I lost 14 pounds in 6 weeks doing the bowflex for 20 minutes..3x's a week and following their plan. Well..I am hoping to lose 15 pounds by Feb. 15 with a total of 25-30 pounds by March 15 or April 1st. I think losing 25 pounds by April 1st makes more sense. Thats 2.5 pounds per week. Well Good luck to everyone!!

Hey Glo - I started this diet today also. I usually don't eat breakfast so I was really really FULL afterwards this morning. Had to make myself eat lunch about 10 minutes ago. I don't think it will be hard to do - just hope that it works. I have been walking about 2 - 3 miles per day for 1 week.

This is the first day I have actually been hungry - I am looking forward to my 1 ounce of cheese and 5 crackers for lunch, haha - I am not sure that is going to make me less hungry. How is everyone else doing??

Hi all,
I am starting the diet today. Up until a year ago I had an average weight of 130. I am 5'7. However, I had some medical issues this past year which caused me to put on over 30 lb in just under 3 months. For the past year I have been feeling very down on myself because I don't feel like I'm in my own skin with all this extra weight I'm not used to. I am asian, so I used to have a small frame, however after putting on this extra weight I look/feel terrible and have since developed a very poor body/self image. I am hoping this diet will help me shed the 30 lb I put on. Is there anyone here that has experience with this diet that could give me some advice? I would greatly appreciate it. Also, are you supposed to exercise on this diet to attribute to the 10 lb you should lose in the first 3 days? Or will that 10 lb happen regardless of whether or not you exercise?
Thank you and gl on your own diets.

PostPosted: January 21, 2007 5:38 PM 

Hi Amy,

From your comment it seems as though you have done this diet more than once. How much weight do you find you lose on average each time you do it?

I decided to start the diet today (monday) instead because I thought there would be too many distractions on the weekend. I'm hoping to lose at least 6-8 lb over the 3 days. Do you think that's a reasonable expection?

TR: Gl on the diet, let me know how it goes.

MB







PostPosted: January 23, 2007 12:10 AM 

So far so good. I'm on day two now. As of this morning I am down 3.3 lb. I'm hoping I'll be down another 2 lb at least tomorrow morning. I don't eat tuna so I substituted tuna for chicken. Hopefully my goal of 6-8 lb after the full 3 days will happen :)

AMY







PostPosted: January 23, 2007 7:53 AM 

HI, MB YES I HAVE DONE THIS DIET A FEW TIMES AND LOOSE UPTO 6.6LBS IN 3 DAYS BUT I HAVENT DID IT FOR A WHILE AND GAINED OVER HALF OF WHAT I LOST. IF YOU EAT GOOD IN THE DAYS OFF YOU WILL KEEP IT OFF FOR A WHILE BUT THE SECRECT TO KEPPING IT OFF FOR GODD IS EATING HEALTHY FOR EVER. YOU CAN HAVE SILLY DAYS AT TIMES BUT NOT ALL THE TIME. IVE HAD A VERY HORRIBLE MONTH I LOST MY 8 YEAR OLD NEICE AND THEN THREE WEEKS LATER MY AUNTIE PAST AWAY SO LOOSING TWO PEOPLE IN LESS THAN ONE MONTH WAS VERY STRESSING AND MAD ME GAIN WIEGHT. I NEED TO START AGAIN JUST TO GET ME ON TRACK AND THEN HOPFULLY EAT BETTER AND KEEP IT OFF FOR A LONG WHILE.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU AND ONE MORE THING YOU NEED TO EAT CATTAGE CHEESE INSTEAD OF TUNA NOT CHICKEN BUT IF IT WORKS WHY NOT.

MB







PostPosted: January 23, 2007 4:29 PM 

Hi Amy,

Thank you for your advice. I'm sorry to hear about your aunt and neice.

It's the morning of day 2 now. I am down another pound, so a total of 4 in 2 days which I am quite happy about. I hope I can lose at least another 2 by tomorrow morning so I would have reached my goal of 6-8.

Have you ever stuck with the diet for more than 3 days? Do you have to take the 4 days off? I was thinking about taking only 1-2 days off or none at all and just restarting day 1 on day 4. What do you think?

AMY







PostPosted: January 23, 2007 6:13 PM 

HI AGAIN MB, NOT I WOULDNT DO IT MORE THAN 3 DAYS IN A ROW. JUST EAT HEALTHY ON THE 4 DAYS OFF OR YOU CAN DO IT 3 BY 3. BECAUSE IF YOU DO IT FOR A LONG TIME IN ONE GO AND THEN YOU GO BACK TO YOUR NORMAL LIFE YOU ARE GANNA GAIN IT ALL BACK AND MORE. THIS DIET IS NOT A MIRICAL ITS JUST A START AND A WAY TO UNDERSTAND THAT A PERSON SHOULDNT EAT TO MUCH. I KNOW A PERSON MIGHT HAVE THEIR DAYS WHERE THEY CANNOT HEPL THEMSELFS BUT ONE DAY IS ALRIGHT IT WONT MAKE YOU GAIN . BUT WHEN IT BECOMES YOUR WAY OF LIVING THATS WHEN YOU START TO GAIN. IM GOING TO START AGAIN WHEN THE KIDS GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND HOPFULLY ON THE DAYS OFF DO EXCERSIZE AND I WILL LOOSE IT BECAUSE IVE DONE IT BEFORE ITS WILL POWER DONT LET FOOD TAKE OVER YOU. YOU BE IN CONTROL, AND IM GANNA TRY AND DO IT ONLY FOR 1 MONTH ON AND OFF 3 YES 4 NO.
AND THAN DO WHAT LIFE HAS TO DO AND THATS EAT 3 MEALS A DAY WITH 2 VERY LIGHT SNACKS AND I SHOULD BE FINE. BUT PLEASE REMEMBER IF YOU LOOSE HEAPS AND THEN YOU EAT ALOT AFTER YOU ARE GANNA GAIN IT BACK AGAIN SO TO AVOID THAT EAT SMART AND KNOW WHATS GOING INTO YOUR MOUTH. SAY TO YOURSELF IS THAT WHAT I REALY WANT OR IS THAT JUST A YUMMY THING THAT IS NO NECCESARY TO PUT IN MY MOUTH. AND YOU WILL FIND THAT IF YOU EAT IT YOUR GANNA FEEL GUILT.
ANYWAY GOOD LUCK

Well I took a few days off like you suggested. I gained back 2 lb on the off days but I am still down 4 lb. I started the diet again today. Is that gain normal to get back after the few days off? I assume it is due to water weight. I am aiming to lose 4 lb on this second week, hopefully I'll get there.

PostPosted: January 28, 2007 2:36 AM 

hi, it all depends on what you ate on the days off. did you eat healthy? also like i said its not a mirical diet its just to let you understand the difference in healthy eating and eating bad.
i think if you do this for a while on and of, then do it yourself because no one can live like this for ever eating tuna and cottage cheese ect. you need to do it on your own or you wont make it in the end. do you know how much i know that and never do anything about it? a million times. Because we are not strong eneough and dont have will power, but we are wrong in being like that. Where do you live? i live in australia.
its been good chating with you on the bored. i hope you get to your goal and wish me luck to

Hi Amy,

Yes I did eat healthily on the days off, the only thing with a high amount of calories that I ate on the days off were a handful of nuts and dried fruit for a snack. It is the morning of day two at the moment, and I am down 0.7 kg (1.5 lb) since yesterday morning. Yesterday was hard to get through as it was hot and I'm PMS-ing at the moment and felt like grabbing for something filled with sugar every other minute! Do you have any advice for surviving cravings during this diet?

Also, I know the diet says to drink 2 cups of coffee/tea each day, however normally in my life I drink green tea. Green tea is quite healthy for you and you are supposed to drink at least 4 cups a day to receive the health benefits (which I normally do) however I was wondering if that is okay on this diet?

By the way I also live in Australia. Thanks again for your advice. You sound like a very knowledgable and determined woman, I know you will get to your goal! Good luck.

AMY

hi, MB in this diet you can drink tea or coffee, not only coffee so its fine to drink tea. also about sweet cravings i get that all the time at that time to and i just open the pantry looking for something sweet to eat and i hate it. The best thing to do is eat non sugar lollies or sometimes i get a bit of yogurt and add honey to it and eat that it makes my sweet cravings go away.
and im not that knowlegable, i wish i was but i just read alot about loosing weight. I am upset about myself and very anger that i cannot control something thats not that hard. it may seem hard but its not. I tried herbal life and lost heaps on that but couldnt afford it anymore and gain half back in 1 year. my body is the type that gain sraight away so i need to do something about it and now when my kids start shcool im am going to start walking and excersing at home with my stuff. And do this diet on and off for a while and after that just do it on my own. You need will power to be able to do great in life and thats what i hope i can get. Oh i live in the penrith area by the way.
i wish i can show you some photos of me before and after i had lost the other weight. its a big difference cause i had lost 37kg. i felt like a million dollars at that time. Ive got a baby face and it just made me look wonderful, but now im starting to get the double chin and wide thighs again and wobbly arms "yuk".
anyway good luck to you my freind

Morning of Week 2 Day 3 - Down another 2 lb (0.5 kg). So 3.5 lb (1.5 kg) so far this week. I'm happy with that.

Amy - You certainly do seem to know a lot about weight loss, your advice has helped me out a lot. I love looking at before and after shots of people, they are such inspiration! I can really imagine the determination and hard work people have done when I look at photos of how far they have come on their weight loss journeys.

Hi to all. Well, I've been off the diet for the past 2 weeks and been eating like crazy. I guess it's from the stress I get from school. My last semester and it ain't going to be easy. I gained 5 pounds so I'm up to 269 lbs. I'm starting the diet again today and would like to loose those 9 lbs by Sunday, remembering I want to lose 109 lbs total. Will inform on Sunday how I did. Good luck to everyone... God bless

I have just complete the 1st 3 days of this diet. I did not lose an ounce, and I exercised, too. My husband lost five pounds. Not sure what happened, but I am very disappointed.

PostPosted: February 1, 2007 7:56 PM 

HI, J, DONT WORRY ABOUT YOUR 3DAYS WITHOUT LOOSING ANYTHING, SOMETIMES A BODY HAS A FUNNY WAY OF WORKING. YOU MIGHT LOOSE WEIGHT THE NEXT TIME YOU TRY SO DONT LET IT DISAPOINT YOU AT ALL.
THAT IS WHEN A PERSON LOOSES HOPE AND GIVES UP, BUT DONT LET THAT HAPPEN YOU NEED TO BE MORE STRONGER THAN YOUR BODY.
HAVE POSTIVE THOUGHTS AND REMEMBER THEIR IS ANOTHER DAY OR WEEK OR YEAR, ATLEAST YOU DIDNT GAIN SO THATS A POSTIVE. ANYWAY GOOD LUCK THE NEXT TIME ROUND DONT GIVE UP. YOU WILL DO IT WITH PATIANTS. THATS VERY IMPORTANT TO HAVE PATIANTS. DONT LET 3DAYS DISAPPOINT YOU YOU HAVE YOUR WHOLE LIFE TO TRY. IT TOOK US OUR WHOLE LIVES TO GAIN IT AND IT MIGHT TAKE US YEARS TO LOOSE IT. NOTHING HAPPENS OVERNIGHT EVEN IN THIS DIET, THIS DIET IS JUST A JUMP START AND THEN YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO DO IT ON YOUR OWN SO BE STRONG AND LIFE LIFE HAPPY.
TALK TO YOU SOON

Today is my first day on the diet. I find it kinda hard because I really enjoy food...lol...which is why i'm in the situation I am (trying to lose weight) Anyways, I was wondering if there is anything I can substitute for the icecream....I was thinking jell-o light, theres only 40 cals in the whole package. Anyways let me know as I dont like ice cream. Thanks! p.s. I'm SUPER happy to have found this forum!

AMY







PostPosted: February 4, 2007 6:24 AM 

HI, WANNALOSE, try not to substitute anything but if you feel the need to you can eat low fat yougt instead of the iceream. im starting this diet tomorrow just to get on track of things and then do it on my own, hopfully i will have the will power and positive thoughts that i nne.
After seeing the biggest looser 2007 tonight it made me see things more clearer, we all need to do this for our health its not good. Please lets all try and start with them and see how we go by the end of the show, i know we wont loose as much as they will but ever bit counts. Good luck you all and be safe.

PostPosted: February 6, 2007 4:28 PM 

hey there at first i thought this diet wouldnt work, and i would put all the weight back. BUT i lost 5 pounds, about 2 months ago and my weight has not gone up, i have not put any weight on. it could be that i work out alot and dont eat junk food, so if you want to give it a go, go for it, i dont believe what people say that this diet isnt healthy etc. firsty its only 3 days, and it can help you change the way you eat. if you do this diet and plan to eat like a pig after it forget about it!!!!

My wife did this after both of our kids and it's tough but works. After all these years (our youngest is 8) She's trying to find the details again so she can get back to where she wants to be. Add some exercise (go for walks!) and it works.

PostPosted: February 12, 2007 4:27 PM 

Hi everyone,

I need to know how much calorie do you think you eat on this diet, because there are lots of bread, everything from 60cal per slice to 100 per slice and again different icecreams. So somebody, with some success can you tell me how much calorie you eat per day on this diet?

Thanks a billion,
Sarah

PostPosted: February 13, 2007 11:14 AM 

I eat a high fiber, lower cal. bread and I only have sugar free ice cream. I know you are not supposed to substitute anything but I can't see having 'sugar free' rather than full of sugar being bad. Anyways, hopes this helps...I guess all i should say is use only the food listed but try to make it as low cal as possible!
Good Luck!

Starting tomorrow . I am 5.4 ft and weight is 154 pounds.
How much can I lose the first three days?

AB







PostPosted: March 15, 2007 4:19 PM 

Today is my last day. I will weight myself tomorrow and see the results. I really don't need to lose a lot of weight. I am 5'6" and weight 125 lbs.

I have to say that I haven't noticed a difference.

Another detail is that people claim this is a starving diet and if you think about it, it really isn't. The problem is that most must not be used to eating healthy and hence your body automatically has a reaction.

My sister and I eat pretty healthy and really haven't felt tired, or drained, no side effect. Today's lunch (3rd) day really has been the most difficult.

I have to admit that I have added spicy salsa to my food. I cannot eat if it doesn't have chili in it. I hope this doesn't hurt the results much. Other than that I have stuck to it to a T.

AB







PostPosted: March 16, 2007 1:28 PM 

I am proud to say that I managed to lose 4lbs (from 125 I now weight 121). My sister however did not seem as lucky. According to the scale, she did not lose any weight. Very odd.

I have to say that I do not feel the difference though. My close still fit tight!!!!!!!

Hi all,

When subsituting the tuna for cottage cheese on day 1, do you have the crackers too like day 2? I really don't like tuna.

msjik72







PostPosted: March 27, 2007 1:15 AM 

1st lets answer Sarah's question. You ask how many calories total is this diet. Its 500 cals a day diet. 2nd I have done this diet 3 times now. The 1st two times sucked. But this last time I have felt great! No headaches and not tummy rumblin. It is true, you have to be a strong will person to stick to it. I also learn if you drink 1qt. of ice water before each meal it does tricks. One you burn calories cause your stomach needs to bring the water to room temp. Second it helps flush out waste. Third you feel full after you eat. (downfall you pee a lot) ~winks~

Those of you who have done this at least once a week do you continue to see great enough results to continue? Also, I asked the question before with no reponse - when you replace the tuna w/ cottage cheese do you have the 5 crackers like day two w/ it. Please someone respond...

amy







PostPosted: April 14, 2007 8:24 PM 

hi AIS, yes you eat everything normal just change the tuna to cottage cheese. also i eat chicken breasts instead of franks. and i di this diet a while back and lost about 3kg and now i put it all back on including 6kg more and i wasnt eating like a pig.
i was alright in what i ate, so this diet isnt a miriale diet its just to let you feel good for a while and be motavated to do more things, like walk and excersice and i was doing that and i even went to the gym. but my luck was just bad. good luck to everyone else out their trying it, and remember eat good after

amy







PostPosted: April 15, 2007 2:19 AM 

TO EVERYONE TRYING TO LOOSE WEIGHT OUT THEIR, AND IM NOT A PRO BUT ALL I KNOW AND BELEIVE IS THAT THE ONLY WAY TO LOOSE WEIGHT THE RIGHT WAY IS TO EAT HEALTHY FOOD ON THE RIGHT TIME OF THE DAY, DONT SKIP MEALS THINKING YOUR DOING A GOOD THING. DONT OVER EAT AS SOON AS YOUR TUMMY IS SATISFYED THEN STOP, DONT EAT BEFORE BED TIME MAKE SURE THERE IS ABOUT 3 HOURS BEFORE YOU SLEEP. DONT EAT JUNK FOOD AND FRIED FOOD IF YOUR MOUTH DESIRES JUST EAT ABOUT 4 PEICES OF HOT CHIPS, A BITE FROM YOUR CHILD OR PARTNERS BURGER AND A TINY BIT OF CAKE, BECAUSE WHEN YOU DO THAT YOU ARE SATISFYED BUT IF YOU STOP IT ALLTOGETHER YOU WILL WANT MORE AND MORE AND MORE. AVOID SODA DRINKS AND SUGAR FULL SWEATS, MOVE MORE AND DO EXCERSICE EVERY DAY EVEN IF ITS JUST A WALK AROUND THE BLOCK. AND BELEIVE ME IF YOU DO THAT YOU WILL LOOSE THE WEIGHT THE RIGHT WAY. IT WILL TAKE LONGER THAN NORMAL BUT IT WILL WORK, BUT I KNOW THAT AND YOU MOST PROBLLY ALREADY KNOW THAT TOO, BUT WE NEVER DO IT BECAUSE WE HAVE NO WILL POWER OR PATAINCE WE WANT IT ALL IN ONE DAY TO HAPPEN. OR 3 DAYS LIKE THIS ONE. BUT THATS ALL WRONG!!!!
DO IT FOR 3 DAYS JUST TO MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND HOW TO EAT GOOD AND SMALL AMOUNTS OF IT, THEN DO WHAT I SAY IT WILL BE THE BEST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU, WE CAN GAIN WEIGHT JUST BY LOOKING AT FOOD OR IN MY CASE SMELLING IT BUT WE DONT HAVE THE ENERGY TO TRY THE BEST AND RIGHT WAY. WHY??? BECAUSE WE ARE LAZY THATS IT LAZY WE WANT EVERTHING IN A WINK OF AN EYE, THATS NOT IT IF YOU TRY AND DO IT RIGHT AND IN 6 MONTHS TIME YOU HAVE LOST SOMETHING EVEN IF ITS JUST A BIT, ITS BETTER THEN NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND IN 6 MONTHS TIME GAINING A FEW POUNDS WHICH I KNOW WILL HAPPEN.
SO PLEASE TRY THE RIGHT WAY ASK SOMEONE FROM YOUR FAMILY OR FRIENDS TO HELP YOU ACHIVE YOUR GOAL, TELL THEM HOW MUCH IT MEANS FOR THEM TO HELP YOU AND SEE HOW WE WILL DO GREAT. IM GOING TO TRY IT ITS BETTER THAN THAT STUBIT 3 DAY DIET AND I CAN EAT MORE THINGS BUT IN THE HEALTHY WAY, I HAVE ASKED MY COUSIN TO HELP ME AND SHE IS GOING TO DO IT TOO. SO IM NOT GOING TO REPORT MY PROGRESS IN 3 DAYS IM GOING TO REPORT IT IN 3 MONTHS. WISH ME LUCK AND I HOPE EVERONE OUT THEIR ACHIVES THEIR GOALS IT A HARD THING BUT A THING THAT MUST HAPPEN BEFORE I DIE FROM A HEART ATTACK OR MY KNEES CALAPSE ON ME. THANK YOU ALL FOR READING MY POST

PostPosted: April 24, 2007 4:51 PM 

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I last posted. Just wanted to say I've been doing the diet since I last posted (early february)with 3 weeks on and one week break per month and I have managed to lose 36 lb in that time. The diet DOES work if you are like me and are able to stick to it religiously and eat sensibly on the four days off per week.

I also attribute my weight loss to exercising 7 days a week. I exercised one hour per day on my exercise bike at home. Exercise is easy to do if you actually realise how much time you waste stationary while at home. If you watch a lot of tv, just do the exercise in front of the tv instead of sitting on the couch eating!

If you're feeling lazy and can't be bothered to do your exercise that evening don't give yourself the choice, just do it but at a lower intensity than normal. Just get it done and don't make excuses. If you have work to get done which means you don't have time, then do the work while on the exercise bike! Lol. I think I wrote about 5 essays for university while exercising because I didn't let myself make excuses and say "I have to do this assignment so I don't have time to exercise today." If you really want something, then actually do something about it, stop sabotaging yourself.

Anyway I am now at my goal weight and have been on a normal eating plan for 2 weeks. I have just simply cut out the 3 days of this diet per week and continued to eat on those three days what I normally eat on the days off. I have not put any of the weight back on. Good luck to all of you. Have a little faith in yourself, it'll help!

Hey folks, I have been on the diet for two days and working out and I haven't lost anything so far. Is it possible that canned veggies are to blame? Feeling pretty frustrated and disappointed. Any ideas?

Scott







PostPosted: June 28, 2007 2:02 PM 

Hey Margaret, Yes... you have to eat everything in the order that it states. No substituting and remember to excersice everday you're on AND off the diet.
Losing 25 LBS of fat in 6 weeks would be very tough and not very healthy. --- if you stick to it you can loose that much weight but most will be water.
Realisticaly you get lose 15 lbs in 6 weeks on this diet.

I tend to leave everything in life till the last minute I guess I work better under a certain degree of pressure..... I am travelling out to the USA for a family wedding on 22nd July and could do with losing stones in weght but 14 pounds would be a great start and make my summer clothes fit easier. So I started this diet yestreday and have stuck to it all day. I am a little bit hungry but will just sip water all night and go to bed early.....Am 17 stone 4 pounds now.... 242 pounds....so am asking my angels to support me through this and reading your posts are inspirational

Angie







PostPosted: July 10, 2007 4:26 AM 

Ok Day 1 out of the way and the scales have gone in the right direction ....they are flickering between 17 stone 1 pounds and 2pounds....I will go for the 17 stone 2 pounds because that gives me at least another pound to look forward to tomorrow morning..........where are you all ?????

Angie







PostPosted: July 11, 2007 6:40 AM 

Day 2 has come and gone with another move in the right direction of 2 pounds....hard though headache this morning and feel kinda wobbly...will up my fluids today and see how long I can last.......No Idea how people manage to have the energy to exercise on this though!! But it is working so far with some mild side effects I can cope with in the short run.

Angie







PostPosted: July 12, 2007 5:43 AM 

Made it ...although had to have a banana yesterdy afternoon....sometimes your body seems to tell you what you need and I wonder if it was to do with the pottasium levels with losing so much fluid......had it and felt better... total weight loss is 6 pounds which has made me feel better mentally from 17.4 to 16.12..... will take today off but I sort of intend to stick to the principles of it...just adding a bit more......and will start the 3 days again.... Black coffee will now be my choice maybe have one with milk each day... I am determined I will NEVER EVER AGAIN go over 17 stone....Good Luck all x

Hey guys! I've just started the 3 day diet and I'm really excited about it. I've got about 10 pounds to lose so hopefully this will budge it... I've had a lot of trouble trying to lose it in the past. Also I've decided just to do the first day of the diet for the 3 days, mainly because it has the lowest calorie count but also because I can't be bothered boiling eggs and buying bananas! Do you think it will matter that I'm doing this? Also I'm going to do 3 days on and 2 days off... do you think it will work well doing that?

PostPosted: September 20, 2007 9:05 AM 

I just started this diet this week. I was 117 on Monday morning and I read this the night before.

About 15 years ago I remembered doing this on Monday, Wednesday, and friday and lost about 25 pounds.

Here is what I ate
Monday, all as described above except I at a whole can of tuna (did not know about the cup measure)
Monday night I ate a whole cup of carrots and a whole (liquid measure) cup of green beans.

Tuesday morning I was 113.5.
Went off the diet on Tuesday (ate 6 meals 1800 calories including carbs and chocolate)
Weigh in on Wed morning, No change 113.5
I wend back on Wednesday and made a mistake again with the tuna, ate 2 cans.

Weigh in this morning 112 pounds and I am very strong lean and energetic.

I have eaten no more than 1000 calories a day for the last year. My metabolism was at a crawl, I was extreemly depressed and retaining water. I am set free.

I am going back on it tomorrow. I think the every other day thing works even better because it does not give the metabolism a chance to slow down.

I still eat very healthy on the days off, except for a rare indulgence, lots of veggis, raw fruit, lean protien, oatmeal and take all of my vitamins.

I also put cocoa (1 full teaspoon) in my coffe 4 times a day and coconut extract in my tea (yummy) on the diet days. I have not been hungry at all and I love the diet days because I relax at night and paint.

I have always exercised religiously, ice skate 10 hrs a week and yoga 5 days a week, and walk 1/2 hr a day. Now on my diet days I only do the walk and spend time on other things. I am so happy about this I could scream.

Thank you Thank you Thank you for this site.
Love me

JR







PostPosted: September 21, 2007 12:05 PM 

Update: I woke up this morning at 113 pounds, this is my third day. I ate 2100 calories on Thursday.( I have not eaten that much in 10 years) I did eat healthy, but whole weat bread, oil on my salad, (I never did that).

So, I will let you know in the morning how I am doing.

Yesterdays menu
Even if I average the calories, I am eating 3000 every two days, which is 500 calories over my normal intake of 1000 or less. So far I am 4 pounds less then Monday and I predict I will be 111 pounds tomorrow because I am following the diet strictly today.

Menu for yesterday:

7AM Breakfast; pineapple, grapes, (cup of each) 200+ calories

10 AM Oatmeal with 1/4 cup ground hazelnuts and cinnamon. 200+ calories

12 PM Salad chicken 100, blue cheese 100 ; croutons 100 oil 100, lots of vegis; 400 calories fresh herbs fresh garlic and sesame seeds (tablespoon, or more)

3 PM cucumber/ tomatoe sandwidch on 2 sl 7 grain bread 200 calories

5 PM protein bar (160 calories)

7 PM 2 sm whole wheat rolls 400 calories (oil and balsamic vinegar dip, yum)

another 200 calorie protien bar (no sugar)

9PM 14 walnuts in the shell, 2 pecans, 1 brazil nut. 200+ calories

soy milk (1 cup) no sugar added. 100 calories


This is the only thing that has allowed me to get to my goal weight to break through the plateau.

Hey guys, tell us what you eat on your days off so we can get really scientific about this.

Love, Me

JR







PostPosted: September 21, 2007 12:12 PM 

By the way, I will be at my goal weight tomorrow if all goes as planned, so I won't diet unless I gain. So I will keep you informed. If my metabolism has been fixed by this, I have you all to thank.

Love, Me

I am 5' 3" so this is an ideal weight for my height.

PostPosted: September 21, 2007 6:17 PM 

By the way, the can of tuna I have says that a serving is 1/4 cup and there are 2.5 per can, so I am going to eat 2 cans (almost) tonight.

lashawnda







PostPosted: October 8, 2007 12:48 PM 

i dont think you are supposed to do it for longer than 3days something about your body going into starvation mode and storing fat. you have to take the 4days off, and if you want to loose more try it again after the break.

hi all,
great to find a decent discussion about the 3 day diet. i have tried everything to lose weight- low carb, calorie counting, soup diets, fat burning pills, you name it i've tried it. i have done the 3 day diet before but this was years ago and from what i remember i did lose a couple of pounds.
i've started it again today because i've just got to the point of being completely unhappy with my weight and not being able to control my eating habits. i exercise ( and i mean really exercise) at the gym nearly every day and have been eating well but then i seem to go off the rails at the weekends and eat rubbish for 2 days. as a result my weight has increased from 9 stone 7 pounds (133 pounds) to 11 stone (154 pounds) in just 9 months! my life is consumed with trying to eat right and train hard but i'm just getting fatter! hopefully the 3 day diet will jump start things again.
i'll keep you all posted on my progress, xx

WOW!! i cant believe i just read everything on this page!
JR, i loved reading your posts. You have given me hope because i am in a similar situation u were in.
i have previousvly dieted A LOT and really screwed up my metabolism. i cannot eat more than 1000 calories, bcos if i do, i'll gain weight.
So for the past year, i have been regaining the kilos that i have worked so hard to lose =( (and that is while i am exercising- at least 45 min walk 5 days a week)
Now that i've read ur that this diet has not only helped you lose weight, but also fix up ur metabolism, i really hope i will be able to do da same =)
and thanx for posting ur menu.
hmm, i'm too scared to eat 2100 calories a day though, havnt done that for soooo long!
Well, JR, if u do return to this discussion...whats ur msn/hotmail??
i would love to chat to you and get ur advice!! =)

Oh yea, i just started the 3 day diet today. I'm not sure how well it will work though, not even sure if it will work at all.
I usually eat about the same calories as this diet includes, so if the weight loss is due to the decrease in calories...i guess i wont lose anything =(

Oh well, of course i'll still give it a go! Wish me luck!!
i'll post updates on my progress!! xoxo

Hi everyone. Well i started the 3 day diet today. Breakfast was actually okay but i was feeling hungry by about 11.30am. By midday i was like a junkie who needed a fix! Icould feel myself speeding up almost in a fast forward motion desperate to see 1.30pm for lunch. I spiced up the tuna with Italian herbs, black course pepper, salt and fresh lime juice. It went down quite well and the black tea with sweetex was quite refreshing.

I have a problem though what i hope someone can help me with, I work NIGHTS! So when i have my dinner at 6pm with my family i leave for work at 9pm and don't get back home until 8am the following day. It's a long time to be just drinking water and i'm usually awake by 1pm in time for lunch. Any advice would be truely grateful. I'm determined to beat the weight and need your support.

Thank you.

Sara

Hi Dainty,

I do not have any experience in your situation, but I think you can use foe example low calorie slice of bread like weight watchers (2 slice=90 calorie) and use of slice with a tsp of PB in the morning and the other slice with another tsp PB at night. Basically down size your portions in half and manage this way. Sorry that I have not a better solution. I am stating my diet tomorrow.
Good luck with your diet.

Hi all- Im in the states and am starting this tomorrow in prep for a trip to Egypt in 1 month- nice to find a place that realizes the value of this way of eating- I've never failed to lose weight- last time I lost 14 lbs in 12 days- wish me luck!
p.s.- dont know if you have them in Britain but over here, oscar mayer makes a 98% FF frank from turkey and 3 of those are less in calories and fat and more in fiber than 2 beef franks.

Vivian- I know exactly how you feel- I've tried it all including a brief stint with illegal "appetite suppressants"...I've tried every diet and I just spin from one to the next...this one is the ONLY one I've been able to maintain- I think because it doesnt give me too many choices, but fills me up and works quickly-Don't give up- you will regret it- I'll write you if you want a buddy to keep your spirits up!

Hey everybody!! I've scanned thru what everybody has posted on here and it seems like not every person is losing 10 lbs in 3 days, i guess its just how you follow it or how old you are or your metabolism or whatever. But I'm 17 at 131 lbs and want to be 110 lbs. Hope this works for me. My friend tried this diet and lost a couple of pounds but gained all back after a while. I'm determined to lose 21 lbs. I'm starting the diet tomorrow.. hope it works for me!!!

PostPosted: November 29, 2007 9:24 AM 

Well, I finished day 3 yesterday and weighed this morning and lost 8 pounds! I'll take that even though I know it is mostly water...this next time will be the test of whats actually possible. I also started taking Alli yesterday- does anyone here have any experience with that?
onward and upward!

Hey All! I just had a baby in December and am ready to lose the last 15 pds. My start off weight was 125 and then I gained 50 pds during my pregnancy. I am down to about 143 although before I started the diet today I weighed my self and it said 138 so I dont know. So far day one went really good. I am waiting to weigh myself atleast until day 4. Has anyone felt a little nauseous the first day? I felt really good until after lunch, but still havent given in. I cant give up cuz I have a wedding to go to at the end of May and I'm the maid of honor. Last time everyone seen me I had just had my baby. Anyway, wish me luck. Also, how long did it take everyone to start seeing results? And do you think exercising will help me lose more weight?

Hello everyone.I am going on a cruise in June and really need to lose 20-25 pounds. I have never tried this diet before and really hope it works. I am desperate. I work at a gym and workout regulary, but I haven't lost any weight. I was very active in high school and weighed 105 when I graduated. I am now 23 and weigh 130. I am only 5' tall so I tend to look a little "dumpy" Anyway I need support from anyone that is trying this diet. Maybe we can stick together and lose the weight... Also any suggestions for substituting the tuna. I absolutely hate tuna.:(

The 1st day i found quite hard but it does get better, i will jump on the scales again tomorrow and let you all know if i have lost any more!

Do you have to eat Ice cream or yogurt or can you just omit that part?

Tonya







PostPosted: June 22, 2008 5:36 PM 

I have been on the diet twice and lost about 3 pounds each time. I am going to start tomorrow again.

I think that the ice cream is a treat at the end of the day, plus it helps you to get your dairy. Don't like dairy? You could probably substitute italian ice.

As for the tuna, I add a about 1/2 tsp. of olive oil, salt, pepper, and dill. I would rather have mayo too, but at least this gives it some flavor without adding anything bad.

Jade well done and keep up the good work hope to see you back on her soon.

Ellie saltine crackers are definitely ritz or tuc I use Tuc as they are more satisfying hope you also come back on her soon.

Hi Tina hope you did well on your first go on this diet I am going to start me 3rd week on monday it will be me pms week so not sure how it will go but you can only try your best.

Nickie I think you drink the tea and coffee because of the caffine as I think it is supposed to kick start your metabolism have youe tried either off them you can you lemon so you could put a slice in your tea and even drinkit cold or even the cofee I do not like strong coffee even with milk in it but I tried it black and its not that bad so I would try and give it a go your taste buds will soon get used to it.

Hope to hear from more of you soon x

PostPosted: June 29, 2008 8:41 AM 

Hi Nickie I have found it ok I thought I would always be hungry but I find that I am alright most of the time, the hardest bit for me is the 3rd day dinner and tea as I go to the gym on that day and I find it hard on just a slice of bread and an egg for dinner and also for tea I never know what to do so I end up just having raw cauliflower and carrots with the tuna so any ideas anyone ?
ps make sure you drink plenty of water and let us know how you get on, where are you from ?

Tina well done keep up the good work I am sure you will be able to lose that in time but I am sure you would great now I am about 231 so I have a way to go yet.What is the meat and egg diet and also where are you from ?

PostPosted: June 30, 2008 8:59 PM 

This is the only diet I can do without having cravings and pigging out. Atkins works but there's not enough low carb foods to satisfy me and when I go off it, I really go off it. I tried Atkins for the month of June and I would lose a pound or two every couple of days and gain it back as soon as I went off it. Even though this is retrictive, you still get bread, fruit and ice cream. I hate tuna, but I put the tuna in a skillet and add a handful of bread crumbs instead of the toast, add a little Italian seasoning, lemon juice and make tuna patties. Before June, I lost 23 pounds in March, April and May by doing the three-day diet and then doing low carbs for a day or two. And if I'm really hungry, I mix the ice cream with diet root beer and make a root beer float. I'm o.k. losing one or two pounds a week. It's better than gaining it. Good luck to all. This works if you do it right.

PostPosted: July 1, 2008 10:27 AM 

I've just started today and I am actually enjoying the food - even the tuna. Very weird.

Hope this works. Got weighed this morning 167 pounds. Fingers crossed.

Good luck to everyone this week.

Tonya







PostPosted: July 1, 2008 11:50 AM 

Started week 2 today. I am very active, I do 4-5 hours of martial arts every week, but have been stuck at 165-169 for over a year. This is the only plan I have been able to do that after a workout I do not have the need to go dig into the icecream.

Thanks for the kind words Millie, but I did have a couple of Dove Dark chocolate pieces during my fours days off. I find it easier to keep the small individual pieces in the house and have one when I really need it, then to really blow it by buying a full size bar.

For some reason, I cannot wait to eat the tuna today. Scales this morning after the four days off still read 163, so thats great!

Good luck to everyone this week.

Nickie







PostPosted: July 1, 2008 12:59 PM 

Well over half way through. Really enjoying the 3 Day Diet. I get weighed on Thursday - so time will tell.

Bit concerned as this is my TOTM (time of the month!!!), so next week will give a more realistic weight loss....

I am on day 3 of the diet. Just had lunch. Have to say that this diet makes me very hungry after lunch and right before bed. It does work though.

I started at 182. I weighed myself this morning and had lost 8 pounds (174). No exercise at all. I work a desk job.

I did eat 6 or 7 crackers instead of 5 but that was my only form of cheating.

Maybe I will update this one tomorrow morning after my final weigh in. Good Luck to all who trys this diet

Just completed first week of 3 day diet and lost 9ibs (couldn't believe it). Day one was the easiest as your body doesn't kind of know what your doing. Day two is slightly harder by which time it really begins to kick in. Day 3 is a bit of a nightmare and I dint even get to have lunch till about 4pm cos i was out and about. The good thing is that you will be aware that its the last day and that should get you through it. The dinner on day 3 is really a lot and I dint even bother with the melon bit.
I personally felt that the hardest bits for me were Nighttimes as I tend to sleep late like btw 2am-3am and thats when major hunger pains kick in but I had no alternative then to drink water.
I did do a little bit of exercise i.e clearing out the gardening, walking, free weights from home but it does feel like a challenge cos you burn of more energy and feel hungry afterwards. All you can do then is drink more water.
Will def be doing it again next week.

I lost 4.5 lbs, but could only manage 3 days till after lunch. I am doing it again this week, but for 2 days on & then 2 days off & back to 2 days on & then get weighed Thursday.

Really struggled on day 3, no energy, mood swings. I can't drink coffee, so maybe that didn't help....

Thanks

Nickie

a BIG well done to the 2 of you (slliw and nickie) that is good going I feel awful for not doing this week but def start it again on monday and on a better shift at work so can also get back to the gym.
Nickie did you try tea with lemon in it either warm or cold? I always find day 3 the hardest love the breakfast but dont care much for the dinner (not enough) and tea (too much and I never know what to do with it so end up eaten everything cold and raw).

Hi Millie - No, I just drank water. Day 3 really was the worst, which is why I am doing it for 2 days (twice a week) & see how that goes...

Well, I only lost 2 pounds this week, and here in USA we had Independence Day Celebrations yesterday; so I did have 1 low fat all beef hot dog and some blackberry pie with ice cream yesterday, but I walked 4 miles this morning.

This was my fourth round on the diet, with a total of 9 pounds loss. I will start again on Tuesday. I need to lose 8 more by Aug.10, my wedding anniversary, to reach my short term goal, and 18 pounds total to reach my goal weight.

Congrats to all of you. You did great this week!

I am going to start it tom after a week break so I know I am going to find it real hard but I also know I can do it and feel better for doing it.

Hope every one who starts this again this next coming week does well. x

Well 1st back on this will be my 3rd time it is 5.10pm in england and I am starving I dont want to eat too early though or else I will be starving later hope it is worth it I was going to get wighed this morning so I could wipe out last eek but I dare not do it as I would have found it even harder to start today hope I have done the right thing though as I also dont want to be disapointed with weigh in on thursday morning.

Caroline nice to see a new face on the forum I dont know if you can do that because some say its a chemical reaction as to why you lose so much but you could give it a go, also my friend has a diet that is slightly different and on day 1 breakfast she has the 1/2 grapefruit and also a small tin of beans on 1 slice of toast so you culd try that as well. where are you from ? and let us all know how you have done.

Where is everyone else these last few days ?

Howdy from Texas. I started this last week and only lost 3 1/2 pounds. Then since it was July 4th weekend, had to have bbq & beer. Couldn't stand to get on the scale today but did start my 2nd 3 days. So far so good. I do want to lose at least 30-40 lbs by October. GOING TO VEGAS BABY!!!!

At last someone has come on nice also to see a new face so welcome to you Cheryl as you have probably I did 2 weeks and lost 3lbs each time had a rest last week so I also could not get on the scales but I have started again this week on day to I am not looking forward to day 3 though as I find this the hardest I love the breakfast but dinner not very filling and tea isnt very interesting and also too much tuna, make sure you post yor results and stay in touch x

I want to lose about 40 - 50 by october so dont know if this will be realistic but we can live in hope.

Hi jo nice to see another now face where in the worl are you from? do you have a lot to lose?. Some people call this the tuna diet so I guess it is pretty important to have the tuna I also think it is there for the protein and also its low in calories. On the 2nd day some versions say you can have a cup of cottage cheese instead of the tuna not sure that it much better though. I also have a big appitite but I manage to get through it the hardest as you can see from previous postings but go for it and stick to it at least one week because when you see the results you will stick to it again. Good luck x

hi everyone just had tea on day 3 not very nice couldnt eat most of it so hpe the weigh in in the morning is worth it anyway off to have my ice cream so will let you all know tom how I have done.

I drink green tea with some sweetnlow. I do drink tons of water, so much I told my work I was moving my desk to the restroom. LOL.
I also cut up the apple & mix it up with the tuna. I used to put miracle whip light in it but have really gotten used to just plain tuna. Also last night I mixed up the apple in my ice cream. I do the same with the bananna.
My scale broke this week so I won't know how I do but my jeans are looser.

I found some salmon in a pack that was flavored with lemon, and I subsituted that yesterday for the tuna. I have also sub. whole wheat toast for the crackers some days.

I also ate my apple with breakfast one day last week with the peanut butter and toast.

I think that you can get creative, but stick to the basic regime.

I have day 3 tomorrow.

Well I have just got weighed and lost about 1/2lb so not very happy but did have a bad week last week I suppose 61/2lb in 4 weeks is still better than putting on will still try and stick with it and try and eat good for the rest of the week and try 3dd again on monday.

Hello from London everyone. Im on day 3 of my second week on this diet. Like i said in an earlier post i find nights the most difficult, thats when all the cravings and hunger kick somewhere btw 12-1am midnight. The funny thing is that when i wake up in the morning I don't feel hungry which always makes me think those hunger pains and cravings the night before must have been false.I think i'm gonna give next week a break but eat sensible and see whats the ratio of my weight.
Given that I hate exercise I have now incorporated a daily 40 min walk. I just leave the house walk for 20 mins take a 3 min break, turn around and walk back. Its quite helpful cos everyday i'm discovering new areas around where i live.
I currently weigh 286 pounds/21 stones and i'm hoping to get to 15 stones so its quite a way to go, but with determination anything is possible.

Well done slliw I am going to find it hard to stay good for rest of the week and then go back to 3dd again on monday but I think I just need to keep in mind that 6lb is still alot cause it didnt go on over night so I carnt expect it to go over night (but wouldnt that be great) make sure you post how you have done tomorrow.

Result day. 1st week lost 8ibs after 3 days on then lost an additional 2ibs after the remaining 4 days off.
week 2, lost 6 pounds after 3 days on and now about to start my 4 days off. The diet does seem to work as I have lost 16ibs in 10 days!!!!! I do weigh 20 stones so its a good start but still a long way to go. I now do some exercise on all 7 days but nothing hardcore and on my 4 days off I don't go crazy with the food. I think that the best aspects of the 3 day diet is that you appreciate vegetables a lot,by day 3 they begin to taste like burgers and chips cos your starving.
I'm gonna take a weeks break from the diet and at the end will weigh myself and see what I weigh and shall post results.
Thanks for all your support millie, your right about the weight, I always remind myself that I dint just put it on overnight (although sometimes i feel that i did lol).
Heres a tip that I used,
