A 3 day diet – how to lose 3-4 kilograms on an easy way

Losing weight is the most effective when practiced gradually and without too much limitation. But if you need to lose weight in a short time, then you can’t practice the Atkins’s diet or any other diet that takes longer. The reason is simple: you have no time!

Therefore, you turn to the three-day diet in order to lose 3-4 kilograms. The very same plan can help you lose up to 6 kilograms in 10 days!

Looking back

There are various stories about where this diet comes from. Some of them say that it is created in a Cleveland Hospital, some say that it is a work of the American Heart Diseases Association, and there’s an interesting story that the diet has been practiced by the Navy soldiers with extra kilograms that they had to get rid of.

Its origin doesn’t even matter. What matters the most is that at the same time, it works as a detoxification program as well.

Before starting the diet, you have to remember a few things: This diet asks for strong motivation and determination. If you don’t do it right, you won’t get the expected result. It might seem hard, but all you need is to keep repeating in yourself: “It’s only for three days…”
Another important note, this diet will change your nutritious habits and decrease your food cravings in a long-term track. After those three days (or a week) you will lose the cravings for sweets. And it is of great help if you want to keep or lose your weight. Think of this diet as a training for better nutrition.

So, let’s get started…
