3 Fast Diets That Work

Rapid weight loss is something that many people seek and many people fail to find. Fortunately, there are actually several options that are available today that can deliver serious results and won’t hurt your health.

The Bulletproof Diet, The Atkins Diet, and The 3 Day Diet will all give rapid results, with varying levels of difficulty, but take a look at all three before you make a decision. Chances are good that one of these will fit your needs and help you drop 5 or more pounds a week without even having to exercise. Read on for more information!

Bulletpoof Diet

Bulletproof-dietThe Bulletproof Diet was designed by Dave Asprey to help quickly lose weight and improve mental performance. It centers around a no carb diet similar to The Atkins Diet, but with a special addition.

The primary diet focuses on intermittent fasting, which only allows you to eat between 2 and 8 pm. When you are able to eat, you have to stick to fats and proteins. In order to quickly lose weight, however, Dave recommends a week of fat only to jump start your weight loss.

This is accomplished by drinking Bulletproof Coffee. This is simply two cups of coffee combined with 2 tablespoons of butter and 3-4 tablespoons of coconut oil. This is a combination of healthy fats that will help your body sustain itself for hours, but it will also slow down the digestion of the caffeine, giving you a steady stream of energy that will last throughout the day.

For the week of rapid weight loss you will only be having Bulletproof Coffee. You can have as much butter and coconut oil as you need in order to feel full and you can lose as much as a pound a day this way.

Many find the reliance on butter and coconut oil to be less than ideal, but it is worth a shop for most. You can read more about it here.

The Atkins Diet

atkins-dietThe Atkins Diet was invented by a cardiologist and was one of the most popular diet plans for years. It relies on putting your body into ketosis and running off of fat, rather than carbohydrates. This isn’t as fast as the Bulletproof Diet, but it is easier to maintain on a long term basis.

20 grams of carbohydrates are all that you are allowed for the first two weeks to kickstart the weight loss and this usually means up to 10 pounds for most people. The important part is that these carbohydrates can only come in the form of vegetables, meaning no grains.

Once you make it through the tougher phases of the Atkins Diet you can add more carbohydrates, but when it comes to rapid weight loss, you should be avoiding them at all costs.

The 3 Day Diet

3-day-dietThe 3 Day Diet is still unknown to a lot of people, but it remains one of the most effective for many people. It is specifically designed for rapid weight-loss and is also referred to as the Cardiac Diet. In fact, hospital patients who need to rapidly drop pounds before heart surgery are put on this diet.

Some say that 10 pounds in these three days is possible, but mileage varies. It is unhealthy as a long term option due to the extremely low calorie count. If you need to drop some weight quickly, though, this is an excellent option that will let you go back to your normal diet afterwards, provided that you don’t eat too unhealthy. If you want to cycle this diet you can, but only after about a week of normal diet.

Basically, you are going to rely on lean meats, tuna, toast, vegetables, and grapefruit. You can use ketchup, salt, and pepper, but no other seasonings. Also make sure to drink as much water as you can!

Here is a sample plan to give you an idea:

  • Day 1
  • Breakfast: Black coffee, half a grapefruit, and 1 peace of toast with only 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
  • Lunch: One half cup of tuna, one piece of toast, and one cup of black coffee
  • Dinner: One apple, one cup of carrots, one cup of green beans, and three ounces of any lean meat
  • Day 2
  • Breakfast: Black coffee, one egg, half a banana, and one piece of toast
  • Lunch: One cup of cottage cheese (or tuna), one piece of toast
