My sister in law told me about this diet and said that you would lose 10pounds in 3 days. That seems a bit impossible to me. Has anyone else tried this diet? And how healthy would this be for you?

Umm I have heard of it... but I think the 10 pounds that you are supposed to loose is water weight. Otherwise, I think it would be impossible or at the most improbable.

I've heard of it. Similar to the Hollywood diet. I've never tried it but I think also that you would be loosing water weight if anything.

Is that the diet where you eat hotdogs and icecream everyday? LOL my mom used to do that one... It's just SERIOUSLY restricted calories. I think any weight you'd lose from it would be water weight.

Yes, for the weight to actually be fat, not water, you would have to burn about 35000 more calories than you eat over those 3 days. Even without eating anything, and with my daily maintenance being about 2500 cals/day - that would still leave well over 9,000 cals/day to be burned through exercise. At my weight that would be a 6 1/2 hour vigorous workout on a stationary bike or a 55 mile walk at 4 mph each day.

On an empty stomach, mind you....

Hi guys,

That is what I though but I wanted to make sure it wasn't a miracle diet or something.

lol, no such thing as a miracle diet, that's how they reel people in. Read Mrs. Jim's thread about her big weight loss secret.

yeah, it would be physically impossible for it not to be all waterweight.

Any plan that advocates losing 10 poundsd in 3 days is seriously dangerous and very unhealthy!

If you are referring to the diet that was supposedly backed by the American Heart Association, then the following link should be helpful. This was posted on the AHA website
