Welcome to my 3 Week Diet review, I’m writing this review today because I’ve just finished going through this weight loss program and want to talk about my results and share my experience.
Basically as you might expect the diet lasts for 3 weeks or 21 days so it’s pretty short.
That’s one of the things I love about it. I didn’t have to wait for months to see if it works.
The program isn’t perfect and I’ll explain why in a minute but first of all I should explain that the program is split up into 3 sections that each last for about a week.
One of the sections only lasts for a couple of days because it involves intermittent fasting.
That’s where you don’t eat for a while to give your body a chance to burn through your stored glycogen and start burning off fat.
One of the sections involves eating a high fat diet and to be honest I didn’t find this part that effective at helping me lose weight.
The first half of the 3 Week Diet is all about low carbs and low calories and this part worked great for me. I actually lost around 5 pounds during that week, the Spring of Life Daily Energy helped too.
And during the part that involved fasting I found that I lost weight too but during the second part with the high fat diet I barely lost a pound.
I guess that isn’t too bad, it’s better than gaining weight right?
If I were to do the diet again then I would probably skip the second part but I’m very impressed with the first part.
Plus after doing some research I have found quite a few other reviews from people that say the same as me that they lost weight on the first part and not the second or they just didn’t lose as much on the second part.
In my opinion to lose weight on the second part of the 3 Week Diet program you need to reduce your calories further because eating all that good fat just provides too much energy to lose weight.
The 3 Week Diet is all about 3 things..
Reducing calories – when you follow this program you’ll be reducing how many calories that you eat. This is to force your body to start burning off fat for energy instead of the food that you’re digesting.
Over the course of the 21 days you’re calorie deficit will amount to around 30,000 calories. They say that you will lose around 1 pound for every 3,500 calories that you burn off so you can lose around 10 pounds in those 21 days.
I would say that you can lose more on part 2 if you reduce your calories further.
The 3 Week Diet recommends a calorie deficit because normally your body gets it’s energy from digested food however you you go on a calorie deficit your body doesn’t get enough energy from food so it starts burning off fat which is how you lose weight.
Intermittent fasting with the 3 Week Diet program – So the next part which only lasts for a day or 2 is all about intermittent fasting. This is where you eat nothing.
As you can probably guess this will make you hungry but it’s really not that bad.
In fact I like to do I.F regularly anyway.
Exercise – The last part that you’ll learn about is exercise. The 3 Week Diet recommends weight training. This is because weight training burns off more calories than normal cardio.
I love weight training now thanks to the 3 Week Diet program. I also like that it tells you exactly what to do in the workouts. With pictures and videos.
One thing I would recommend if you want to get even better results is to do a 10 minute run or some cardio bother before the workouts and after.
I did a 10 minute run on my treadmill then the weight training and topped it all off with another 5-10 minute rune.
The 3 Week Diet workouts tend to last around 15-20 minutes so they’re pretty short but effective.
By doing 10 minutes of cardio before and after the workouts will last around 30 minutes which is perfect for me.
In fact even though I’ve finished the 3 Week Diet I’m still doing the workouts now and again.
Supplements – There are some supplements that are recommended in the program. To be honest the only one that I bought and recommend is called whey protein as it’s a great way to get some protein into your system without cooking up chicken or turkey.
Whey protein is also great if you’re a vegetarian.
My 3 Week Diet results
So over the 21 days I lost about 11 pounds. I could have lost more if I had replaced the third high fat section with the first low carb section but that’s fine.
I actually found the program pretty easy to get through and I was amazed at how fast the 21 days went by. It really wasn’t that hard.
Overall I really liked the 3 Week Diet program and would definitely recommend it.
I like that it’s very cheap and affordable and to complete the program you don’t need a bunch of expensive equipment or a gym membership.
Plus I found the book very easy to read and after spending a couple hours going through it I was ready to get started.
If you’re looking for a cheap but effective program to help you lose weight then I would recommend getting a copy of the 3 Week Diet program.
