Calories & Cholesterol Contained in Popular Foods in 3 Day Diets

These two elements will greatly effect the amount of food that you can put into your weight loss plan, as well as the amount of pounds that you hope to lose.

We have posted a data reference chart below depicting the amount of calories contained in foods which are popular for three day - or limited-time reduction plans.

All of the foods listed in our data chart are very healthy choices, so the health issue isn't with the types of foods, rather with their caloric values.

When Energy Values are Deficient, the Body's Metabolism Slows to Conserve Energy, Thus Weight Loss Results are Poor-to-None

The energy content is extremely low - so minimal that these values are unable to support a healthy body. Rather than pulling stored fat from the storage cells of the body, the metabolism goes into mutiny.

Although the human body is brilliant - it isn't wise enough to know that the individual is purposely limited energy intake so that fat can be expressed from the fat cells.

Unfortunately, it assumes that the body is in a troublesome situation - that perhaps the recent harvest was poor and food is very limited, so the metabolic rate slows to a snail's pace in order to best-conserve the precious stored energy values.

On that note, let's review the following foods which are popular while dieting - whether the plan lasts three days or for months on end.

Calories & Cholesterol While Dieting

While losing the fat is key in reaching our recommended healthy body weight, opting for foods which are deficient in meeting the body's required energy amounts in order to support life-itself isn't the best method for obtaining a fit and healthy body.

In fact, going this route may cause permanent damage to the body rather than permanent weight loss results.

The best method for reaching your fitness goals is embracing a healthy eating plan based on the Food Pyramid, pursuing moderate activity and balancing it with relaxation. In order to accomplish such, you don't need a 3 Day Diet Plan - you need a Life Plan.
