Dinner is served! You can have two hot dogs (minus the buns), 1 cup of broccoli, half a cup of carrots, half a banana, and half a cup of vanilla ice cream. This diet dictates vanilla ice cream only (why? I have no clue) but you can substitute ice cream (who would do that?) with one cup of apple juice or one cup of vanilla, strawberry or banana flavored almond milk.
The vegetables on this diet should be steamed, baked, boiled or eaten raw. Meat should be grilled or baked, and if you are a vegetarian then you can substitute the protein sources with tofu, lentils, beans and/or portobello mushrooms.
The third and final day has arrived! You’re almost there, don’t give up now! For breakfast, you are to have 5 saltine crackers, 1 slice of cheddar cheese and 1 small apple. Saltine crackers can be replaced with rice cakes (one for one) and cheddar cheese can be replaced with ham, eggs, cabbage or soy cheese. Don’t forget your black coffee or caffeinated tea!
This lunch is going to be a bit small but on the menu is one slice of whole wheat or multi grain toast and one hard boiled egg. You can switch the egg out for one cup of milk, or two slices of bacon or just one chicken wing. As you can probably tell, from day 1 to day 3 there is a slow and gradual reduction of even more calories (hence the rapid weight loss.)
For the last meal of day 3, you can have 1 cup of tuna, half a banana and one cup of vanilla ice cream. And remember, there is no snacking allowed on this diet. You need to eat these foods and these foods only. You can switch the foods around, so you can have dinner for breakfast and vice versa but you cannot add any additional foods in!
Alcohol is strictly prohibited on this diet (even though alcohol is a macro-nutrient but without nutritional value), even on your 4 days off, you should not be consuming alcohol especially beer or fruity drinks (it’s just empty calories!) If you MUST drink then only one glass of wine is permitted.
Please remember, weight and fat loss are two different entities. 10 pounds lost in 3 days does not mean 10 pounds of fat. The reduction in calories (and salt as well) will cause you to shed some water weight, some intestinal mass (poop) and some fat as well.
So if you think this diet is for you, give it a go! Just make sure to consult a physician first before jumping into such a strict diet.
