3 The lemon diet
( for 7 days expectation 5kg of loss)
All it takes is seven days on the lemon
diet to cleanse your body, recharge
your batteries and drop a jeans size!
The main tip in this diet is to drink as
much lemonade as we can. Here is the
recipe for lemonade and example of one
Sunday’s menu. Target is to drink loads
of lemonade, from the minute you get up
to just before bed. Like water, lemon is
excellent at kick-starting your digestive
system, helping bowel movements along
and eliminating toxins. It’s also a natural
appetite suppressant.

4 Three day
pilot/military diet
(up to 8 kg loss)
Also known as The Military Diet, the
3-day diet is unsurprisingly pretty
hardcore. It states that you must follow
an incredibly strict plan of under 1000
calories for 3 consecutive days at a time,
with a 4-5 day break (if you want to lose
more fat).
The 3-day diet meal plan:
One thing you have to know about the
3-day diet is that it won’t ‘work’ if you
don’t stick to it exactly.
So that means following it to the letter,
portion size is essential and the diet also
recommends eating the food outlined,
even if you do not feel hungry.

On top of your eating plan, dieters are
also allowed 950ml of water or non-
caloric drinks daily.
By restricting your daily calorie count to
under 1000 calories for 3 days straight,
this diet claims that you kick-start your
metabolism, burn fat and lose weight fast.
The thing to remember is that unlike
the 5:2 diet,
the 3-day diet has to be
completed in 3 consecutive days. That
means restricting your calorie count for
quite a considerable time, unlike the 5:2
diet which says you can space out your
‘fasting’ days.
For these 3 days you follow a strict meal
plan,
which the diet advises you do not
stray from at all to get optimum results.
Unusually there is no diet book, no group,
or a website on this diet to explain exactly
how following this plan actually works
and boosts that metabolism. So let’s find
