The Three Day Diet By: Tyler Rogaliner and Estella De La Cruz
Background• The Three Day Diet’s origin are unclear but it goes back to 1985 and it is also call the Cleveland Diet because some believe it was founded in a Cleveland Clinic. It was originally for people who where about to have surgery. They would diet three days before their surgery.
Basic of the Diet• You eat certain foods that you could ordinarily find in you kitchen for three days and you would lose up to 10 pounds. Some of the foods consist of a cup of black coffee a piece of toast for breakfast, for lunch a ½ cup of tuna a piece of toast and black coffee or tea, and for dinner 3 ounces of lean meat some vegetables and fruit. Exercise is not recommended for this diet.
Pros• You can lose up to ten pounds while still while still eating healthy food that will be laid for you so you know what to buy at the grocery stores.• The diet only last for three days so you don’t have to worry about plateaus.
Cons• You only intake less than 1000 calories a day so your metabolism slows down so when you go back to eating normal you put the weight back on quicker and possibly more weight than you lost in the first place.
Our Opinion• In our opinion I think that this diet could be healthy as long as you cutting back on your food intake not completely cutting it off and the food you taking in is healthy for you not fats.
