The Radical Crash 3-Day Diet

Try the 3-day diet for immediate but short-term results. But only if our career depends on it and not done regularly. A 3-day diet has sure result but not aimed at better health – so it is adviseable to stick with 3 days only and to get back up on vegetables and carps after the diet schedule has ended.

There are people who need to lose weight fast for a short term. The so-called 3-day diet is most convenient and effective for them.

Is there really an effective 3-day diet? Yes, there is. And it’s really quite simple because it’s mostly about cutting back on calories-and it’s just for three days. The shorter it is the more workable it becomes. Definitely, we cannot prolong this type of diet over 3 days. Some people need this for a specific and momentary purpose.

Hence, a 3-day diet is not for everyone. Neither is it for life, unlike other diets. It’s not a healthy thing to do habitually either. People who do 3-day diets do it to pass certain weight or fitness requirements for the time being. Like boxers. Professional boxers are categorized according to their weights. To qualify for a weight division, overweight boxers-even those who just go slightly past the standard weight-have to loose weight fast.

There are times when 3 days before a fight, some boxers find themselves a bit overweight. Some resort to drastic weight-reducing drugs. But others prefer a 3-day diet. The trick here is to simply eliminate all calorie-rich foods and reduce liquid intake for 3 full days. It’s something similar to partial fasting. A tip here is that, it’s the cut on water intake that really makes this diet effective.


Another example is fashion models. Sometimes, on short notice, they are made to wear super fitting getups. To cope up, they undergo a rigid 3-day diet prior fashion modeling day to lose more excess weight and size and look extra slim. Thus, a 3-day diet is not really geared towards better health but better looks and qualification.

Diuretic beverages like tea and coffee make up most 3-day diets. Cruciferous veggies like cabbage, lettuce, broccoli, and cauliflower are, of course, excellent. Lean beef meat plus fish and chicken, some egg white are also possible. Important also are veggies and fruits high in fiber like squash, carrots, and papaya.

But bear in mind that the veggie and fruits should be taken sparingly in a 3-day diet. They should just slightly supplement a basically liquid diet mostly of diuretic drinks to flush out liquids and fats and reduce calories considerably within three days. After 3 days it’s back to regular eating. And the danger is that the yoyo effect afterwards may result to double weight gain.

Thus, a 3-day diet should not be done regularly to avoid getting in to the yoyo effect. And most especially, this diet is certainly no for everybody as it is a hard slimming program.

Eating Oily Fish for Health

Fish Oil supplements such as Cod Liver Oil, together with Omega-3s and Essential Fatty Acids are extremely popular at the moment for their health benefits and their usage in improving the symptoms of many different diseases and disorders.

However, many of these same benefits can also be received from eating oily fish such as mackerel and herring. Oily fish are the richest source of Omega-3 essential fatty acids so we should make them a regular part of our diet.

Compared to Mediterranean diets, where fresh fish are regularly caught from their shores as well as being surrounded by olive groves, fruit trees and vegetable harvests, we typically do not include a good intake of oily fish in our diets.


Studies have shown that Mediterranean’s, like the Eskimos who survive on large amounts of fish and marine animals, have far lower rates of heart disease, eczema and psoriasis and better levels of general health compared to other Western countries.

A diet rich in essential fatty acids in the form of fish and vegetable oils, together with fresh, unrefined fish, fruit and vegetables is responsible for good health and well being. These foods are abundant in rural areas of France, Greece, Italy and Spain and scientists believe it is the combination of these natural foods which accounts for the good health of these nations.

Other nations, such as our own, tend to favour meat over fish with meat containing higher levels of saturated fat which, in large quantities, will increase the depositing of cholesterol in the arteries, raising the risk of heart attacks and thrombosis. Moving to a diet rich in fresh fish, fruit and vegetables and low in animal fats reduces or eliminates this risk substantially.

Buying or selecting fresh fish can be difficult in our supermarkets and shops as not all fish contain the essential fatty acids which are so beneficial to our health. Pre-packed foods and ready-made meals containing fish just wont provide the benefits of fresh fish. It is worth the effort to visit a large supermarket or fishmonger who will have a much larger selection of fish which contain the fats we need.

A range of Oily Fish which provides the Omega-3s so beneficial to our health include;

Anchovies

Bass

Carp

Cod

Haddock

Halibut

Herring

Lake trout

Mackerel

Mullet

Rainbow trout

Red snapper

Salmon

Sardines

Sole

Sprats

Squid

Swordfish

Tuna

Note that Tuna should be bought fresh and not tinned, as the fish oil is commonly drained off and replaced with refined vegetable oils.

The best way to gain the benefits of oily fish is to eat the fish raw and if you are a fan of Japanese cuisine, you should enjoy this Sushi style food. If you are unable to eat raw fish or just don’t like eating fish in this manner the next best method is to bake your fish before eating it as this will preserve the Essential Fatty Acids in the fish more effectively than grilling or frying.

By making fresh oily fish a regular part of your diet you will be improving your health and reaping the benefits of the Omega-3s and Essential Fatty Acids they contain.
