Breakfast: Black coffee or tea, ½ grapefruit, 1 slice toast, 2tbs. Peanut butter.

Lunch: ½ cup tuna, 1 slice toast, coffee or tea.

Dinner: 7 slices any type of meat (about 3 ozs). 1 cup of string beans, 1-cup beets, 1sml apple, 1 cup of vanilla ice cream.

This diet works on chemical breakdown and is proven. Do not Vary or substitute any of the above foods. Salt and pepper may be used, no other seasonings, where no quantity is given; there’s no restriction, other than common sense. This diet is to be used 3 days at a time.

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

I think I might starve!  Also, I am not big into black only coffee, or beets to point out just a few.  If you can stomach all the products, more power to you, doesn't sound like enough calories though.
My mother-in-law has this diet..   It is a total joke.. You will be in the bathroom alot during the day.. Maybe that is how you lose the 10 lbs so quick... Looks like your  going to be eating 600 calories a day if that... You need at lease 1200.......
Hey i am willing to try this along with you...it doesnt sound very healthy though
It seems to be just another way of seriously cutting calories to an unhealthy level. You can eat that few calories of any foods and lose weight for a little while, until you hit starvation mode.
As my physician mother noted: "Any diet plan that contains hot dogs has to be a joke."

I wouldn't, I just wouldn't.  Why put yourself through the pain of attempting to stick to a diet that you know is unhealthy...you know you'll probably go wild with your favorite food the minute you're done and gain most of it back.

If you just cut your calories and get a bit of exercise, you can do 5 lbs in 2 1/2 weeks for most people.

I agree that any diet that suggests hot dogs is not a healthy, nutritional one.  Also, the ice cream is questionable.  A high fat, high calorie food like that twice within a 3 day period.  Maybe that's the only reason you stick to the menu for the ice cream at the end of the day. Lol!

"This diet is based on chemical breakdown and is proven." 


"This diet is based on starvation and is foolishly unhealthy."

What a wonderful way to ruin your metabolism and cause yo-yo dieting. Starve yourself. Gain it back. Starve yourself. Gain back more. Starve yourself. Gain back even more.  I did this for about 30 years. It is not a healthy, sustainable way to lose weight.  It's a quick fix with dire consequences ... like getting one of those Payday Loans to pay your credit card bill.  It's just NOT worth it.

Count your calories. Eat a balanced diet. Exercise. Know your BMR. THIS is how to lose weight.

=^..^= MOLLY

10 lbs would be too much to lose in a MONTH, let alone three days.  I wouldn't do it--good luck.

seriously though, if this is what ppl are trying now a days, with hot dogs and what not

i think anyone on here could come up with a so-called "diet" and go posting it around the web

day 1- two crackers

day 2- two marshmallows

day 3- two scoops of rocky road icecream

instant-weight-loss-diet-plan! Horrayz! :-D

That sounds pretty good... wanna try it?!?!?!?!

If it were so easy to lose 10 lbs in 3 days...none of us would be here! 

Plus, anything that uses "chemical breakdown" in the same sentance as "proven" sounds pretty bogus. 
Thanks for your replies everyone...you guys are right.  I shouldn't even bother with this.  Thanks again and good luck to everyone ;)
i dunno... i looove tofu hot dogs and ice cream.  ;) 
So I heard about an even BETTER diet day 1: 2 crackers Day 2: 2 marshmallows Day 3: TWO scoops rocky road!

I dont' remember where I heard about it, but I'm sure its based on science. I'm going to be sooo thin!

In all seriousness, be careful with diets like the one you suggested, it could slow your metabolism and piss you off enough to quit counting/dieting all together.

I've actually done this with my parents! It wasn't too hard...I lost 8 pounds and my parents both lost 6 pounds. But you wouldn't believe how fast we gained that weight back. It's so not worth it.
I'v just tried the diet, followed it exactly and lost 8 pounds.  I was looking for something to kick start. I drank a lot of water in between and urinated a lot. So I lost mostly water weight. I also logged the calories, it is aproximately 1200 calories a day.  I don't believe in the whole "science" thing yadda yadda, but it was a plan that got me to eat fewer calories and I liked everything on it.

i am only 13 this will b 2 unhealthy 4 me i need calories i have 2 have a certain amount of carbs and fruit and stuff a day.

i have tried this diet, i was only able to do it unill the second day (including) i got sick from eating cottage cheese with just the crackers, as the tuna fish i felt the cottage cheese the whole day...i was not able to go on cause i felt like throwing up so...i don't know if it works or not, but i'm going back to what i know it worked for sure so far for me :weight watchers :)

OHHH the legendary 3 day diet.

SO pretty much I USED to do this once a month in high school. Obviously wanted the fast results. I would lose about 6 pounds. Go back to eating normally and you GAIN it alllll back.

Not worth it in the long run.. but the chicken and the tuna and the hot dogs and ice cream every night brings back soo many memories.
