Pros and Cons of the 3 day diet
The 3 Day Diet can be helpful if you need to quickly lose weight for the short term – for instance, if you need to lose weight for a wedding.
The 3 Day Diet, however, is not a diet for long-term weight loss. It is a low-calorie diet with little nutritional value. Any weight lost on the 3 Day Diet can be easily regained.
