3 Days to a Thinner Body
Need a fat reduction plan that is high in protein grams?
Our original 3 Day Diet is a plan that is plentiful in protein sources which means it will keep the dieter feeling fuller for longer periods of time. And of course, protein is boss for muscle health - as well as adding other healthy benefits.
On the other hand, a daily eating plan that is extreme in proteins can trigger health issues for individuals with certain conditions - such as those with kidney or diabetic issues, so it's vital that one receives the approval of their doctor before beginning any type of fat reduction plan.
In addition, protein-rich foods end-up being acidic to the body after the metabolic process. When the body becomes overly acidic, the result can be an increased risk for cell damage, illness, disease and other ills. The body works best when foods which are metabolized on the acid side are balanced with foods which are on the alkaline side. These include fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly fruits which are high in Vitamin C. While it may appear that foods rich in Vitamin C would create a more acidic than alkaline body, the opposite is true. They become more alkaline amid the metabolic process.
Guidelines for Our Original 3 Day Diet Plan
Treats, Snacks Menu & Weight Loss Tips
Keep those favorite treats under lock and key unless they are low in fat grams and calorie content. Unfortunately, favorite treats tend to be high in sugar content and fat content while low in fiber content and often include: bakery items, ice cream, fried foods, and chips.
Over the next three days, opt for water or zero calorie beverages. Beverage calories can add up quickly and for some individuals - achieving recommended weight can be as simple as opting for smarter liquids.
Exercise & Activity Tips
Be sure to take a walk each day. Even a short walk will help curb appetite, make the body feel good, and will also burn a few calories in the process.
