How To Lose 10 Pounds in 3 Days

The three day diet is a quick and easy way to shed those last 10 pounds, jumpstart a new diet and fitness program, or so you can fit into your old swim suit. The diet isn't healthy though to maintain after the three day period, because it doesn't contain enough calories and essential vitamins and nutrients to fuel your body's metabolism.

The three day diet dates back to around 1985. I've created a twist to this well known fad diet, that has helped me and will help others as well. The diet itself calls for you to eat grapefruit in one of your meals. If you are on certain medications, especially those for high cholesterol or blood pressure, eating grapefruit is a no-no. It nullifies the medications usefulness. This is my three day diet that works just as well as the original, if not better. You will lose 10 pounds in three days if you follow this guide to the letter.

You will notice a Mandarin orange is listed each day.
Mandarins have been proven to enhance digestion, be good for the liver by dispelling toxins, and reduce allergens in some. If at all possible opt for buying the fresh mandarin oranges over the canned variety. If you do buy canned try to get the kind that is not processed with high fructose corn syrup.

The 3 Day Diet food combinations burn fat, increase energy, cleanse the body, or lower cholesterol. However, medical professionals and nutritionists agree that this diet is not nutritionally balanced, and can be unsafe, especially if continued beyond the three day guideline.
