The Alabama 3 Day Diet

This  diet , also known as the Cardiac  Diet , is said to have been invented either at the University of Alabama or in a hospital nearby – hence it’s name. Patients who follow the  diet , typically shed around 10 pounds in 3 days. This particular  diet  is said to have been conceived out of the 3 day  diet  with special modifications targeted at the heart – typically for patients who are preparing to undergo surgery and need to drop fat very quickly.

Does the Alabama 3 Day  Diet  Work?

It absolutely does! If you follow the plan carefully for 3 days, you should lose in the neighborhood of 10 pounds.

Is the Alabama 3 Day  Diet  a Starvation  Diet ?

This is not a starvation  diet  – you will be eating 3 meals a day for 3 days!

Important!

The Alabama 3 Day  Diet  should only be followed for 3 days. It should not be followed for more than 3 consecutive days. The  diet’s  success depends primarily on decreasing water retention, therefore dehydration should be of considerable concern in extended use. For long-term  dieting  options, check out healthy living and detoxification programs. You should consult your physician to inquire if this is the best option for you.
