Can somebody please post this diet? I had gotten it from someone a while back but my computer crashed and I lost it. This diet is good for a "quicky" diet to drop a few pounds before a special occasion. The one that was posted on the board did NOT have beets on it like all of the other versions I've seen and I HATE beets. I believe it is just called the 3 day diet. Thanks! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/clown.gif">
The diet works on a chemical breakdown and is proven. Do not vary or substitute any of the above foods. Salt and pepper may be used, but no other seasonings. It is suggested to drink from 6-8 glasses of water per day to flush out your system. Where no quantity is given, there are no restrictions, other than common sense. This diet is to be used for 3 days at a time. In three days you will lose 10 pounds. After 3 days of dieting, you eat normal food, but do not over do it. After 4 days of normal eating, start back on the diet. You can lose up to 40 pounds in a month if you stick to the diet.
I know they say it's a chemical balance thing or whatever, but I'm sure, if you don't like beets, you could always half it, delete it, or replace it with another healthy vegetable. Plus, for me, I hate grapefruit. Especially if I can't load it with sugar *LOL* I don't see a problem with me replacing it with an orange instead.
That's how I look at 'dieting' anyway. First of all, I dunno 'bout losing 10lbs in a week. I'd be happy if I lost 5lbs, and I know, even that is too much really. No quick fix and all that. Anyway...everything in moderation, and don't do something you're going to hate. I did this diet 10-12 years back and it worked pretty good, but back then I weighed alot less, so didn't have so much to lose I guess. But, if you absolutely hate beets, and you keep them in, and try to do the diet with them anyway...pretty sure you wouldn't want to do it for long.
Anyway...whatever approach you take, stay safe, healthy, and good luck with it <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
PS: That's what I forgot...that was the big draw to this diet for me, was that it was everyday foods for me. No meals to make that I wouldn't normally make anyway. No expensive stuff, or stuff I couldn't get easily at the grocery store. That's ALWAYS a plus in my books <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"><p>[This message has been edited by steph70 (edited 06-16-2002).]
