The menu for the three-day diet plan can be found on Diet.com and numerous other websites. Also referred to as the military diet, it suggests losing up to 10 pounds in three days.
The three-day diet consists of a strict eating regimen for three days. There are different variations of the diet. The menu includes foods such as grapefruit, toast, saltines, peanut butter, tuna, bananas and cottage cheese. Vanilla ice cream is also on the menu.
Claims suggest the combination of foods in the diet increases the body's metabolism, leading to much faster weight loss, but those claims are not verified. The diet was most likely not developed by nutritionists or medical professionals, according to WebMD.
