What's All That About a Three-Day Diet, Anyways?
No,not literally a three-day diet, actually. But there is such a diet plan which is designed to meet the ends of excessive (and fast!) weight loss. It is thought to have been put together for the convenience of surgery patients whose procedures required them to lose the extra baggage.
However,this diet plan may also be used by the overly-eager weight loser.
The Cabbage Soup Diet and How it Works
Thesecabbage soup diet is for the most part based on a fat-burning soup recipe. This soup contains negligible calories. This means that the more soup a person eats, the more weight he or she will lose.
This makes this diet plan a fairly radical one, in fact – it is among the most extreme ones out there, and this is exactly what allows it to show considerable results after a mere seven-day period.
Namely, the goal of the diet is to lose about ten pounds (that is to say about five kilos) within a weeks time.
The Diet Plan
Thefollowing is a daily plan of other foods to eat (a side from the cabbage soup, of course).
Dayone: any mount of any type of fruit except bananas.
Daytwo: vegetables, a jacket potato and some butter.
Daythree: fruit and vegetables (but no potatoes or bananas).
Dayfour: up to eight bananas and as much skimmed milk as a person can drink.
Day five: twenty ounces of beef and no more than six tomatoes.
DaySix: beef and vegetables (but no potatoes) as a person can eat.
TheLast Day: brown rice, vegetables that are not potatoes and unsweetened fruit juice.
Other Foods That Are and Aren't Allowed
Dietersare encouraged to drink as much water as they can, but other than that and their two daily bowls of cabbage soup, thay may only pick from: fruit, vegetables, skim milk, brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and certain types of meat.
On the other hand, the following foods are strictly prohibited: bread, alcohol and carbonate beverages (this includes even diet soda).
Another helpful guideline to picking the right food is the fact that the diet's effectiveness is based on the low calorie intake.
On a side note, this diet plan is hardly a long-term solution, but it is an excellent one when it comes to the need to lose the extra baggage as quickly as possible.
Other Suggested Benefits of the Diet Plan
Theseinclude fast weight loss, the benefits that come from even a temporary shift from a junk food diet an overweight person is most likely to be indulging and cancer preventing measures (since eating vegetables from the Brasica family seems to do the trick).
Aperson should always consult his or her doctor about the potential risks of any diet plan, both the general and personal ones, and especially when it comes to extreme examples such as this one.
Again, this diet is designed to get rid of those extra pounds quickly and effectively, but enduring prolonged course of it may cause significant health issues itself.
