I know you aren’t going to believe this but I lost 9 pounds in 3 days, by using the hospital three day diet plan. Not only did I come out of the hospital feeling better, I even looked better. It was safe and fast! You can do the same thing with this amazing little diet and frankly it doesn’t taste that bad. Read on to find out about it.
Have you ever had to spend more than a day in the hospital? If you have, or if you know someone who has, you probably have seen the food they serve. Hospitals have been somewhat notorious for serving “bad” food – i.e., food that tastes yucky, bland, or boring.
Of course, most folks probably think that because the hospital tends to be more interested in serving healthy foods, and they have to produce them en masse. Even still, the meals being served from those little plastic trays are getting tastier and more nutritious all the time. Not only has medical care improved over time, so have nutritional guidelines and food preparation techniques.
The Hospital Three Day Diet is pretty tasty, and it is true that it is a diet you might find in the typical hospital setting, but that doesn’t really automatically mean it is going to taste terrible.
The Hospital Three Day Diet is based on the chemical components in the food, so it is a very strict diet that does not allow you to do any substituting. The idea behind the Hospital Three Day Diet is that the foods work in combination to help you lose weight. You are supposed to follow the exact plan for three days, then stop. It is supposed to be used as a motivational “jump start” to boost your weight loss plan. If you find yourself wanting an additional boost, it is acceptable to follow the hospital three day diet, eat sensibly and reasonably (don’t pig out) for four days, and then follow the plan again.
Here is what you get to eat on the Hospital Three Day Diet:
First Day: A cup of plain black coffee or tea, ½ of a grapefruit, 1 slice of toast with nothing on it, and a tablespoonful of peanut butter.
Second Day: A cup of plain black coffee or tea, 1 egg, 1 slice of toast with nothing on it, and ½ a banana
Third Day: A cup of plain black coffee or tea, a small apple, 1 ounce of cheddar cheese (sharp or mild doesn’t matter), and 5 regular saltine crackers with nothing on them
First Day: A cup of plain black coffee or tea, 1 ounce of cheddar or 1 slice of toast with nothing on it, and ½ cup of tuna (plain, packed in water)
Second Day: A cup of plain black coffee or tea, ½ cup of tuna or 1 cup of low fat cottage cheese, and 5 regular saltines.
Third Day: A cup of plain black coffee or tea, 1 hard-boiled egg, and 1 slice of toast with nothing on it
First Day: 3 ounces of lean meat (chicken), 1 cup green beans, 1 cup of carrots, 1 small apple, and – get this now – 1 cup of vanilla ice cream (woohoo!)
Second Day: 2 beef hot dogs (sans buns), 1 cup of broccoli, ½ cup of carrots or turnip greens, ½ banana, and ½ cup vanilla ice cream
Third Day: 1 cup plain tuna again, 1 cup cauliflower or 1 cup kidney beans, 1 cup carrots or beets, 1 cup of watermelon or cantaloupe, and ½ cup vanilla ice cream.
See why it gets its name? Can’t you just picture the hospital orderly handing you these exact things to eat during your brief stay? There must be a reason for that, and trust me, this diet works. In three days, I lost nine pounds, which was just enough to look better in that little black dress I bought on Tuesday for Saturday.
