The British Heart Foundation Diet Meal Plan

 

This diet is best known as the British Heart Foundation Diet or the Greenland Diet and has been circulating for many years. The diet claims claims that you can lose 10lb in three days – and many of our readers get fantastic results. The diet is very popular in the UK – but the exact origins are unknown.

Long term weight loss can only ever be achieved through sensible changes to diet and the introduction of regular exercise. But this three day diet is great for a special occasion that has crept up and you aren’t quite where you want to be.

Oolong Tea

Why not try combining The British Heart Foundation Diet with Oolong Tea?

Every now and then we all feel the need to resort to a strict, short term weight loss eating plan to see fast results. While a very strict diet meal plan is not advisable to do regularly or long term. kick start style diet plans can give you the confidence boost and motivation that you need to start a healthy weight loss plan.

The 3 Day Diet should only be followed for three days at a time. If you wish to use the diet for a few weeks, we would advise that you follow a three days on, three days off rota.

This weight loss plan works because the calorie intake is low, but still gives nutritional balance. One of the things that makes this plan popular and relatively easy to follow, is that ‘normal’ foods such as ice cream and hot dogs are incorporated and there is some variety.

BREAKFAST LUNCH DINNER
Black Coffee or tea with low fat sweetener
1/2 grapefruit
1 slice of toast with 1tbsp peanut butter

1 cup (128g) of carrots
1 cup (100g) of cauliflower
1 cup (160g) of melon
1/2 cup (68g) of vanilla ice cream
black coffee/tea/water*

*Low calorie sweetener should always be used instead of sugar

Condiments allowed on the 3 Day Diet

  • Lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • Mustard
  • Cooking oil spray

Variations on the 3 Day Diet

If you really don’t like any of the foods included you can make some changes;

  • Orange instead of grapefruit
  • Tuna instead of cottage cheese or vice versa
  • Frozen yoghurt instead of ice cream
  • Cauliflower instead of broccoli and vice versa
  • Green beans instead of broccoli or cauliflower
  • Beetroot instead of carrots

    I think maybe people lose at different rates, plus I did go for a 50 minute run which may have helped, don’t give up, any loss is a bonus.

  • Richard Wilson

    Lost nearly 7lbs on the first day, unbelievable, and I was only briefly hungry throughout the day, roll on day 2.

  • Richard Wilson

    Thought I’d give this a try and see if it works, day 1 today, see how it goes.

  • Sue B

    Can I have skimmed milk in my coffee as I don’t like it black and can I have Benecol on my toast instead of peanut butter. I have high cholestrol

  • Bride2be

    Hi, I’ve just started today! Does it matter what kinda of mustard you use?
    English, wholegrain etc?
    Also why do I not feel hungry?
    X

    • Sue B

      you don’t feel hungry because of the ratio of protein to carbs. The more protein you eat, the less hungry you feel

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    The recommended drinks are as follows:

    Black coffee/tea/water*

    If you forget to eat something at the time stated just allocate it to another meal later that day

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Unfortunately there is no substitute for hotdogs, only a quorn version

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Yes you can certainly use a meat alternative if you wish.

    Good luck! We don’t recommend any particular brand of crackers.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    You can drink water throughout the day however tea and coffee should be limited to 3 times per day.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    No particular brand/make of crackers are recommended, you can have
    brocolli or cauliflower as a green bean replacement. A cup of tea after
    tea is fine as long as its not in addition to drink with your dinner. I
    would recommend you stick to plain water and chicken as your lean meat
    is absolutely fine

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      We recommend you only drink plain water Denise.

  • Cynthia Close

    I’ll try this the next time I have an emergency weight loss situation, I like the fact that its endorsed by the American Heart Association, so it must be a safe way to lose weight. I’m usually on one kind of diet or the other, but when I do go back to eating regular meals, I try to balance the calories with exercise and lots of water. Controlling your weight is all about, a healthy balance.

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Thank you for your comment Cynthia :)

  • mansy67

    hi again 226g of tuna is alot can it be fried??? OR can i do half tuna half cottage cheese(which i hate) mix them together with plenty of pepper is that allowed…

    • mansy67

      the tuna is tinned by the way

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      You can have half and half if you wish.

  • Ann Abbitz

    Can we substitute gelato for the frozen yogurt and ice cream, or does it have to be that exactly? And for the water, can we use those flavorings (such as the Crystal Light?) I use those, because I don’t like plain water.

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      I am not familiar with gelato or crystal light. I would however advise that you drink plain water.

  • Mark G

    Just couldn’t stand the tuna this week is there an alternative ??

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      The substitution for tuna is cottage cheese.

  • Mark G

    It’s teaspoon

  • mansy67

    hiya can you confirm the peanut butter is it a teas spoon or table spoon???as it tbsp (usually stands for table spoon which is alot!!! and can it be the crunchy variety or smooth many thanks…

    • Mark G

      It’s a teaspoon

      • mansy67

        Thanks Mark …looks more than a teaspoon in pic!!!!! …

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hello, yes a tablespoon which can be either smooth or crunchy.

  • Carrie93

    Strange question but I don’t like peanut butter can I just eat the amount needed straight and get it over with or does it need to be spread on the toast?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      No, you can have it straight off the spoon if you find it easier to stomach :)

  • Mark G

    i lost 3lbs this week, I fell good and will be doing it next week!!

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Great Mark!

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    A small amount of blueberries should make little or no difference to your end result. Three small servings of calcium daily is enough to accelerate fat
    burning. Hence the reason cheese and ice-cream are included in the
    diet. You can substitute the ice-cream for a little milk in your
    tea/coffee if you wish.

  • Carrie93

    Hi can you swop the coffe or tea… I hate both!!!

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Your allowed drinks are tea, coffee or water. If you cannot drink tea or coffee the only option is water however this can be sparkling if you prefer.

  • mmpeoples

    Less than 1000. Google it. That is how I learned more about it. I first tried this diet back in the 1980’s and it did indeed work for me following the menu exactly. I was sure to do so avoiding error as much as possible. My results were indeed 10 pounds after 3 days. However, The only time I do this diet or cleanse or whatever one would call it, is when I need to lose weight fast. I’ve done it for one month and lost 40 lbs.

    I would not recommend this as a lifestyle because nutritionist says that we should consume at 1000 calories per day. I sometimes cheat by adding a heaping of ice cream. The results are 6 lbs in 3 days. but that is still GOOD.

    .

  • Mark G

    Can I have apple instead of melon ?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Yes you can Mark.

  • Snooky

    Can I drink sparkling water x

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Sparkling water is fine snooky as long as it isn’t flavoured

  • Mark G

    Is sliced corned beef ok for the first dinner ?

  • Karen Collier

    I lost 6lb – whoop whoop x

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Well done Karen!

  • Olivia

    Will I still lose weight if I normally eat 800 calories a day anyway??

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      It really depends which foods you are consuming differently to your ususal diet.

  • samantha clayton

    hi I can’t eat peanut butter what is the alternative ?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Samantha,

      If you cannot have peanut butter I would recommend you leave it out.

  • Karen Collier

    I love this diet as I did it for my wedding in 2006. I am on day three this am. Day two is always the hardest, so I had dinner at 5pm and went to bed at 7pm to get through it. I will let you know what I lose tomorrow morning, but 4lb off already x

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Great Karen. Do keep us posted :)

  • Olivia

    To lose weight do you have to excersise aswell as the diet plan??

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      We always advise that everyone should partake in a little exercise and most of us do it without realising, a brisk, 10 minute walk per day or an hour of housework is fine.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Leigh,

    Yes you can.

    • Patricia Scott

      Hi, would that apply to any herbal teas? I couldn’t drink coffee black without sugar but happy to drink fruit teas like orange/cranberry or lemon

      • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

        Green tea and lemon tea is fine : )

  • Demi-Renay Thomas

    substitues for tuna can be chicken,tofu,almonds or peanuts, as for cottage cheese the substitutes can be plain Greek yogurt, ricotta cheese, cheddar cheese, eggs, or ham, just make sure when using these substitutes make sure you’re eating a similar amount of calories to the food you are substituting (:

  • Myanna Unwin

    Why is ice cream allowed but milk in coffee or tea isn’t? And I had blueberries instead of Apple that ok?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Emma,

    Unfortunately there are no alternatives to bananas

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Unfortunately there are no alternatives for tuna or cottage cheese.

    Hi Vickivixstar,

    Keep up the good work! I know it’s tough but it will pay off :)

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    We recommend your daily intake of calories on your 3 off days is no more than 200 more than when following the diet. You should eat plenty of vegetabels and steer clear of fatty foods.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi,

    We advise the toast is plain. Wholemeal is prefereable over white and the hotdogs should be of average size (tinned)

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Good luck Beverly! Do keep us posted.

    Please eat the foods stated. It is recommended that you have no more than 3 cups of tea or coffee per day.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Karen,

    The only substitution for Tuna is cottage cheese.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Yes that’s fine.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Kate,

    No, that shouldn’t make a difference at all.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    We recommend 3 days on 4 days off Sam.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    The choice is up to you, I would imagine that most people weigh themselves after the 3 days.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Unfortunately not Cath.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Any type of melon is fine Becky. Something like a water biscuit or a Ryvita would be more suitable.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Yes, Tuna is spring water is preferred over tuna in brine/sunflower oil etc.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Yes you can Val.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Orange has the opposite effect of grapefruit. If you cannot eat grapefruit for whatever reason replace with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water and drink it.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Karen,

    The grapefruit is an important part of the diet. It helps to speed up your metabolism and burn fat.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    No more than 3 cups of tea or coffee per day and unlimited water.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Maggie,

    I would advise that you double check with your GP first just to be on the safe side.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    We would advise you try to stick to tuna in spring water rather than oil.

  • Jade

    Last day doing well, very easy to follow. Lost 4lb so fair, looking forward to weighing myself in the morning :)

  • Chloe Johnson

    I can’t stand hard boiled egg, is there anything I can have instead of this?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Unfortunately theres no alternatives to eggs Chloe however you could cook them differently ie scramble or softboil them.

  • Tunde Kastrati

    4lb loss! I’m well happy with that! :) I admit that dinner on day 3 was not really good but still ate it. I had tuna and cottage cheese half a portion each. There’s no way I could’ve eaten 226g of tuna lol Just wondering if you could swap lunch with dinner? I tend to eat a bigger lunch and lighter dinner. :)

    • Denise White

      Well done I finished mine yesterday but I’m not getting weighed till tomorrow morning, if I’ve lost the same I will feel very happy! I too struggled with 226 g of tuna! I ended up giving some to the cat lol

      • Tunde Kastrati

        Me too! Lol when I measured the 226g of tuna I thought ‘no way!’ So my two cats were happy to have half of it lol I think I could’ve lost more but I’m on my pms days :-/ (water retention) let us know how much you lost. I’m gonna make this a weekly thing :)

        • Denise White

          I’ll let you know!
          Yes, I am going to make this a weekly thing too and do a sort of 3days on and 4 days off diet

        • Denise White

          I lost 2lb which is better than nothing, I’m doing it again this week, so today is my second day again. Found it easy to do though!

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Tunde,

      Yes you can swap dinner with lunch if you wish. Well done on your weight loss.

  • Mel

    Hi, I started this last week, lost 4lbs which I was really pleased with, I did find though on day 2 I was still hungry with just two little hotdogs. When you say hotdogs is it the small tinned ones or the big American or bratwurst ones? Looking at 250-300 cals in the small ones would be around a full tin of 8 hotdogs? I’m abit confused can you please give me some advice. Everything else was great I was full the other days and felt much better in myself.

    • Tunde Kastrati

      Hey Mel, thanks for replying to my first post. I lost 4lb too! Well done to us! I don’t really like the hot dogs since I saw a video about how they make them. I bought kiddies’ version coz it’s less junk I guess. They small ones and I ate 4 of them. X

  • Danielle

    Is there a limit to how much water you can drink on this?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      No Danielle. As long as you have the recommended 2 litres per day.

  • Tunde Kastrati

    I started this diet today and I feel full! Just had my dinner and had to check the amount of ice cream I can have coz I couldn’t believe it. I bought low fat and 136g is a huge bowlful! Lol I’m curious how it’s going to work.

    • Mel

      I felt the same Tunde, but I lost 4lb, i stuck to it religiously and drank lots of water inbetween meals. Good luck.

  • Denise White

    I started this diet yesterday, but I am just wondering if it matters if you mix the days up i.e could I eat day 3 meals on day 2 etc? does it make any difference as long as I stick to the foods

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      You can mix the days if you wish Denise, however it is advised that you stick to the foods stated.

  • ladytigger

    Will be starting the diet will keep you posted. Good luck to everyone who is starting.

    • Denise White

      How did you do on this diet? I have started mine today x

      • ladytigger

        Hi Denise I did really well I lost 9 pounds and I didn’t feel hungry and enjoyed the food x

        • Denise White

          Wow Fab x

        • Denise White

          Hi, I only lost 2lb but it is better than nothing! I found it easy and am doing it again this week x

  • ladytigger

    Hi I noticed in an earlier conversation the crackers can be either cream crackers or ryvita can this be any flavours? Also can rice crackers be used and to what calorie amount?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi ladytigger,

      Yes, they can be any flavours. Rice crackers can also be used however if they are large I would only recommend you have a maximum of 3.

  • Beth

    I am on day 2, although I have modified it a little (having a drop of milk in my tea rather than the icecream for pudding) however, I’ve hit a wall with the tuna. I don’t like tuna at the best of times unless it’s covered in mayo, but I struggled through yesterday and today I have to eat a cup of it! I cannot stand cottage cheese either- is there anything else I could swap it for?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Beth,

      Unfortunately not. I would advise that you replace only with another food from the diet however this may affect your end results.

  • Laura Carey

    Hi whats the best type of hot dog do you mean tinned?

    Hi Lizzie,

    It’s difficult to say why you haven’t lost as much as you’d hoped, sometimes certain diets don’t work for everyone. Don’t be disheartened, we have many other, very popular diets available in our blog.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Debbie,

    As you will see from the comments below this diet is very effective albeit not for everyone.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Jude,

    If you’re vegetarian, you can use lentils, beans, tofu or portobello mushrooms as meat alternatives.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Sue,

    If you have a peanut allergy or just don’t like peanut butter, you can
    substitute the same amount of almond butter, pumpkin butter, soy butter,
    sunflower seed butter, hummus or bean dip. Two tablespoons of plain
    sunflower seeds also work

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    whole grain cereal, 1/2 high protein bar, 1/4 cup of yogurt with 1/2
    teaspoon of flax seeds. You can also use one tortilla or two rice cakes
    instead of bread.

    I hope this helps.

    I don’t like hot dogs

      Substitutes for hot dogs include turkey dogs, soy dogs, tofu dogs,
      bratwurst, luncheon meat, deli meat or baloney. For vegetarians, you can also substitute beans, lentils, or portobello mushrooms. Again, you can substitute another meat, but you don’t need to skimp on the fat with
      the hot dog substitute, as long as the calories are the same. There are
      about 250-300 calories in two plain hot dogs.

    Is there a substitution for peanut butter

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Jade,

      If you have a peanut allergy or just don’t like peanut butter, you can
      substitute the same amount of almond butter, pumpkin butter, soy butter,
      sunflower seed butter, hummus or bean dip. Two tablespoons of plain
      sunflower seeds also work.

  • Kara

    Just wondering if the bread has to be toasted? I can’t see it making any difference but thought I would ask in case

    Hi Mora,

    We recommend sticking to the tuna for optimum results but this can be substituted for: a piece of grilled
    sushi grade tuna, the same size as 1/2 or 1 cup serving of canned tuna.
    Other substitutes for tuna include cottage cheese, chicken, tofu,
    almonds or peanuts. Any very lean meat can be substituted for tuna, but
    fish is preferable.
    Replacing with an egg for one meal should make little or no difference to your end result.

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Tia, we don’t recommend adding milk to your tea or coffee

    If you’re vegetarian, you can use lentils, beans, tofu or portobello mushrooms as meat alternatives.

    No Jasmine. Any brand/type is fine.

    The vanilla ice cream in the Military Diet can be substituted for 1 cup

    I heard about the diet from a colleague and she said you can lose up to 10lb, although the i was only 8stone 11lb i thought it was too good to be true so I have tried it for myself. I have just completed my 3 days and I have lost 5lb I can’t actually believe how well it has worked!! For people wondering whether it will be like any other diet it most definitely isn’t! Although I enjoyed it, I can’t wait to have a tea with some milk in :)

  • Dan738

    So our office is having a weight loss competition. We all put in $75 each. The winner gets $300. 1/2 for you, 1/2 to your favorite charity.
    So I found this diet and thought what the heck, give it a go. I am 6’3″ and weighed 315 lbs. I stuck with the plan as close as possible. The only real change was I added diced dill pickle and celery to the tuna. After the first meal of it I just could not bring myself to such a bland meal, LOL. Anyways after 3 days I did my weigh in at work and all the girls wanted to know my secret. I had lost 11lbs. Going for a walk each night helps also. It was a real inspirational loss and I have been careful so far this week. Next weekend I will do another round and see how it goes.

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

        So far so good, had a sneaky peak on the scales this morning, 4 and a half pounds off so far. Had a bit of a cheat yesterday, felt a bit light headed and not well so had a very small piece of chocolate but then done a half hour aerobics session when I felt better, think I was just lacking sugar as I do usually eat two chocolate bars a day. All in all, it’s been great so far. Day 3 now and I’m excited to see the moment of truth tomorrow morning on the scales.Even if I have only lost the 4 and a half pounds, it has been really worth it to give myself the kick up the butt I needed, I will be continuing the 3 days on 4 days off technique although opting for healthy choices on my 4 days off and exercise.

    Hi I was just wondering how much 1 cup is in oz and is 1 cup ( was changed into oz ) the same for the tuna as well as ice cream and veg etc

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      1 cup of liquid = 8fl oz, however ice-cream is not a liquid in it’s frozen state and should be measured in oz rather than fl oz.

      1 cup of ice cream weighs approximately 4oz (dependent on type) therefore the same applies to tuna and veg.

      Hope this helps.

    When it says ‘hotdogs’ is that including a bread bap/roll or is it just hot dog sausages on their own?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Steph,

      The hot-dogs are to be consumed on their own without the bun.

  • Rebecca

    Is there anything other than Hot dogs i can use. Really can’t eat them.

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Rebecca,

      Unfortunately there are no alternatives to hot-dogs.

  • laura

    Is the veg fresh or frozen? And is the weight of the veg 8oz to

  • laura

    Does the veg have to be fresh or can it be frozen? If the tuna is tinned what sort is best is spring water, oil,brine is the veg weighed before or after cooking? When it comes to measuring/weighing the veg will it always be 8oz?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Laura,

      We would always advise you use fresh wherever possible. Tuna in spring water would be best. The veg should be weighed before cooking, otherwise you may end up cooking too much.

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Not quite sure what you mean by “will it always be 8oz”.

  • Catherine Wheel

    Are the ‘cups’ the American style measuring cups?

  • Suzanne Bloomfield

    I do not like eggs, peanut butter or grapefruit. Any suggestions?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Orange instead of grapefruit is fine as a substitute as stated above however unfortunately there are no replacements for eggs or peanut butter.

  • Antony O’ Flaherty

    Hey can you stay on this diet for months at a time, till you get down to your ideal weight?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      We always recommend you have a break of a couple of days following each stint e.g 3 days on 2 days off. You can continue with the diet for as long as you feel necessary.

  • Antony O’ Flaherty

    Hey is there a vegetarian version of this diet

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Unfortunately not Antony.

  • anita

    What can you have instead of banana

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Anita,

      Unfortunately there is no alternative for bananas, if you don’t like them leave them out or replace with another fruit listed above.

  • Michael

    Hi just a question with the tuna, can I mix it with a little mayo? And is it compulsory to have the ice-cream or frozen yoghurt with this diet?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Michael,

      We wouldn’t advise adding mayonaise to the tuna. It is not compulsory to eat have the ice-cream or frozen yoghurt, this is entirely up to you.

  • Leighton

    Does it have to be toast or can you just have a slice of bread?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Untoasted bread is fine Leighton :)

  • Jane

    can the tea be ‘green tea’? also will it harm to have vinegar on the tuna?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Jane, green tea is absolutely fine, we would however advise against using vinegar.

  • Rose

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

  • missie

    hi can i use any bread to toast and should i drink lots of water

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      We would recommend you use wholemeal bread if possible Missy, try and drink at least 2 litres of water per day if you can too.

  • Rose

    Hi, my name is Rose. In the past, about 8 years ago, I followed this diet plan on a number of occasions and had positive results, although it was not has much as 5kg! Perhaps it was the sausages

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Rose,

      We do recommend you use tinned hotdogs, however jarred Bratwurst (framkfurter) sausages are fine.

  • Louise BH

    This looks great! I need a kick start as I have found the pounds to be creeping on of late. The only time I can seem to lose weight is if I follow a really rigid plan so I’m starting this in the morning. I’m going away in three weeks and read in one of the comments on this thread that the seven day egg diet would be ok to do straight after this?? Any advice? I eat such crap on a day to day basis that the food in these diets look much more balanced than what I’m used to. I usually spend half my day hoovering up uneaten food my toddler has rejected! All advice gratefully received.

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Louise,

      Yes the 7 day diet is fine to commence after this diet, maybe give yourself a few days off before hand, but still continuing to eat healthily.

      Slimming Solutions

      • Louise BH

        Thank you for getting back to me. I’m feeling so positive! I had cottage cheese and toast for lunch today and it was amazing. I must have been hungry but I didn’t feel it. I stir fried (no oil) some cooked chicken breast with some crunchy fine green beans for dinner but had to put some lemon juice and chilli in it to make it taste nice.

        • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

          Sounds delicious Louise! Do keep us posted : )

      • Louise BH

        5.5 lbs off in three days!!! Yay! I’m going to carry on with the breakfasts and lunches and have protein and vegetables for dinner. I found this so easy to follow (minus the hotdog malarkey). It really helped to give me a really good kick start. I’d defo recommend it. Mainly because it works and also because there was no need to spend loads on it. Anyone who says this diet is unhealthy needs to look at all the crap that I used to eat!

  • Melissa

    Can I leave out the bread because I struggle with chronic constipation and the bread makes it even worse. Another question can I rather eat Vanilla fat free yogurt instead of ice cream and eat it then between meals, together with the fruit as a snack between meals. Thank you

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Melissa,

      Yes, leaving the bread out is fine. As is replacing the ice cream with yoghurt, why not try freezing the yoghurt?

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Just to clarify the confusion regarding 1 cup of ice cream. 1 cup = 8fl oz however ice-cream is not a liquid in it’s frozen state and should be measured in oz rather than fl oz.

    1 cup of ice cream weighs approximately 4oz (dependent on type)

    Hope this helps.

    • Sal

      Hi , is it necessary to stop after 3 days or can you continue the diet? Do you continue to loose the weight or is the normal eating in between compulsory to make the diet work?

      • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

        We always recommend you have a break of a couple of days following each stint e.g 3 days on 2 days off. You can continue with the diet for as long as you feel necessary

  • Esha

    Can you swap to an vegetarian option so can you replace the lean meat or?

  • Em

    How much is a cup of ice cream ? One cup = 8 oz?? 8oz of ice cream seems a lot, thanks!

    Good day Guys Day one of the diet Followed it but had just had frozen yoghurt for lunch instead of supper does this ruin things or should I continue and skip yoghurt at supper

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Zee, I would advise that you continue where you left off.

  • Shaz

    Can we swap Tuna for Salmon? And can the eggs be poached or soft instead of hard boiled?

    Can chicken or lean meat be used instead of viennas? Can’t get myself to eat these as they are full of unhealthy nutrients …

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Shaz,

      Replacing the hot dogs with lean meat is absolutely fine, we would advise this to be no more than 3oz.

  • Brooke

    Is their anything I can have instead of the tuna and cottage cheese?

  • Lyn

    I believe your conversion of cup to ozs is incorrect.
    1 cup equals 8 oz, not 4 as you’ve stated several times.

    Please check and clarify.

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Lyn, my sincere apologies you are correct. 1 cup = 8 oz

  • Lyn

    Can you continue this diet without a 4 day break?

      Hello Lyn, we would always advise that you have a break at some point during any strict diet.

    This is my go to solution every year this time after winter. It works. I lost 5kg the first week, 4.8kg the second week and then adding some training the 3rd week it jumped to 6kg. That was a mammoth 15.8kg in just 3 weeks. It’shard but it’s so worth it.

  • Ericsbird

    A bit late letting everyone know what the final result was. A rather disappointing 3lb total. Didn’t cheat in any way but it was 3lbs I wouldn’t have lost otherwise. Ive decided to do 3 days a week with 4 days off in between, hopefully gaining some good habits and losing some old bad ones on the way. Went away for a week after the 3 days and gained back 1lb but am back on it now, so here’s hoping…………..

  • Ericsbird

    Day 2 – 3. Despite thinking a dinner of hot-dogs and vegetables was seriously weird, I bought frozen Quorn ones. Not bad but very salty. And I wasn’t too hungry after banana and ice cream. Following morning – disappointed with only 1lb more loss. Breakfast of cheese, apple and toast, and the now hateful black coffee managed to keep me satisfied till 1.30 when I inhaled the required egg and toast without it touching the sides! Have just eaten the last meal of the 3 days with more eagerness than enjoyment as I was STARVING! Think I read somebody else’s comment that by day 3 they were seriously grumpy with hunger. Ditto. Weigh-in in the morning (……………..sound of breath being held!) Have not diverted from the diet at all – will report after weigh-in.

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Ericsbird,

      Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

  • Nic T

    On my last meal of day 3. Hot dogs tonight. I Swapped day 2 and 3 around as we had no hot dogs in yesterday. I haven’t weighed myself yet but I feel loads better not eating so much junk as I have been lately and surprisingly I haven’t really felt hungry. Hopefully I can update with my weight loss tomorrow !

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Nic T,

      Great to hear :)

  • Ericsbird

    Day 1 – 2. Supper of roast chicken breast, carrots and beans was jolly good as I was rather peckish, but got in late from work so didn’t eat till after 8.00pm. Hence, not enough time to get hungry again before bed time. Eating a little later seems a good idea – may keep that up! Weigh in this morning revealed a loss of just under 2lbs. Egg and toast for breakfast a real bonus as I don’t usually eat breakfast at all. This kept me going till 2.00pm when I suddenly realised I was hungry. Chose to buy Vogels bread with Linseed as the slices are small but thick and the linseed helps to keep you ‘regular’. Also v tasty! Cup of cottage cheese ok as I was really hungry, but not something I would usually opt for. Worth keeping it in mind when I continue with weight loss after the 3 days as although it’s not inspiring, it does fill the gap! Black cofee losing it’s initial attractiveness but hey-ho, it’s only till I get rid of the weight! And you never know, if I get so used to it, I may stick with it. Surprising how many calories a few cups of coffee or tea with milk amounts to! 5 cups a day – 75 calories or thereabouts! Add that up over a month and you are talking about an entire days worth of calories!! Quorn hot dogs for supper tonight with reduced amount of carrots, and, sadly, icecream reduced to 1/2 a cup but if it means another 2lbs, Im a happy bunny! Check back tomorrow for update…………….

  • Lee

      Hi Jemma,

      I would advise that your Mum replace meats with a meat alternative such as Quorn products.

  • Ericsbird

    Before and After………..I’ve started today. Need to lose a stone, though would be happier with one and a half. Hoping this next 3 days will kick start me and help with motivation. So far I’ve discovered that you can’t tell there isn’t any milk in your coffee if you add a little cold water- and don’t look at it! Having spent years saying I hate black coffee, I now discover that I quite like it! Am at work so can’t find a decent knife to cut my grapefruit…..AAArgh! And couldn’t weigh myself as the battery has gone in the scales! Will do so tonight when I get new batteries. Have to say I’m sceptical, so if you are too – watch this space…..I’ll re-post when the results come in!

    Is it ok to put skimmed milk in the tea or coffee? Can’t drink it black and don’t think I could go without :(((

      Afraid not Sandra, tea & coffee need to be black. Awful isn’t it :(

    • Kylie

      You can put a small amount of lemon juice in your black tea, really weakens the darkness of black tea and it’s the only way I can drink it. X

  • Catherine

    I have just completed my first 3 days on this diet, I stuck to the plan with the exception of not eating peanut butter (can’t stand the stuff) & substituting the tuna for salmon. Jumped on the scales this morning and I could of cried with joy – 10lbs lost !!!! This diet really works. OK I will be honest and admit by the 3rd day I was almost about to give up but I’m so glad I didn’t. I will continue to do this diet weekly for the foreseeable and keep you updated with my results. I am so happy, I just wanted to share this with you all and say “Don’t give up” Keep up the good work everyone, the rewards of a slimmer & healthier you can be achieved. :)

    In July 2014 I stuck to this fasting diet, I did not eat hot dogs as they are yuk, I had lean cold meat each day. Weight loss was incredible 4 lbs after 1st day and on the final weigh in was 7lbs, but then jumping on the scales on the 4th day after finishing the diet I had dropped that 10lbs. I had a great weekend as planned. The following week I gained some of the pounds, but I had relaxed the diet very much. I am going to do it again this week as I have a birthday celebration next weekend. Good quick fix makes your skin look lovely as well.

  • Katie Fox

    I’ve used this diet since back in the 80’s to lose unwanted weight before holidays and to kick start general weight loss plans!! I would just advise (from personal experience) that just follow the plan. I don’t drink tea and coffee so water for 3 days is fine! I don’t like grapefruit so I try ruby grapefruit or orange segments. I dont always lose 10 pounds, sometimes only 5/6 but I feel proud I managed 3 days of dieting! The morning of day 4 is soo rewarding to have a bowl of crunchy nut corn flakes and ice cold milk. But try and push on day 4 to not pick – have 3 square meals and then weigh yourself.
    They deffo recommend 3 days on and not repeat until after 4 days off. Good luck those who use this. Remember its ONLY for 3 days! Go to bed early with a book. don’t chose days when you’re bored and you spend hours waiting for your next morsel!! Do it with someone!

    Hi thinking of trying this diet. Can you use frozen veg or does it have to be fresh??

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Amber,

      We would always advise that you go for fresh wherever possible however the choice is entirely up to yourself.

      Slimming Solutions

      • Amber ?’s Nicholas

        Thanks. I did decide to buy fresh as its not much in price. I lost 6lb last week so hoping for a nice weight lost again when I stand on them scales tomorrow :-)

  • Lindseyw

    Hi how would you recommend doing this diet if you do 12 hour night shifts ?

  • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

    Hi Guest,

    I wouldn’t recommend having tuna in any kind of oil whether it be sunflower or olive, I would stick to tuna in brine or water if you can. The cottage cheese does not need to be low fat.

    I’m preparing myself to do this diet next week.
    The hot dog , can I have Frankfurt in a packet?
    Also as we working out in the community we can’t cook for lunch so will only be able to have a slice of brown bread. This ok?

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Rebecca,

      Yes a Frankfurt sausage in a packet if fine. In terms of eating on the move food can be prepared before work and stored in containers i.e the tuna and boiled egg, if you find this any easier. We would advise against only having one slice of brown bread for lunch every day.

    I did this diet around 4 years ago and lost around 2 stone, although it’s one of those water weight loss diets where you would usually put the weight back on, I didn’t! Until now that is, I have put a stone back on since moving away to University, so me and my flatmate will be starting this diet on Monday, I have no doubt that it will work again for me seeing as it worked so well before! I guess it varies from person to person. I actually only stuck with the exact diet for a few weeks, after that, I just picked out the meals which I enjoyed the most, for example I would have egg on toast for breakfast everyday, cheese or cottage cheese and crackers for lunch, and then meat and veg fruit and ice cream for dinner, and it still worked!

    I started the diet 2 weeks ago. I lost 6 lbs in the first 3 days. Then I ate sensibly for 4 days and back on the diet for another 3. I’ve just started the 3rd round of 3 on the diet 4 off and I have lost 12lbs so far. I know it will slow down but still really chuffed! I have tried to walk for at least 1 hour 3 or 4 times a week too and that definitely helps.

    Hi everyone. If you were in any doubt at all if this works then listen here.
    My wife and I start a calorie controlled diet last Tuesday. Along the lines of weight watchers. I weighed in at 18st 12lbs 2ozs. Last Friday we started the 3 day diet. Thought it would be best to do it over the weekend not wanting to mess around too much at work. We followed the plan to the letter. We both weighed this morning (Monday 13th) get this. I weighed in at 17st 12lbs 6ozs. Thats nearly at stone!! The wife lost 8lbs. We intend to keep going with calorie controlled diet so will let you know how we get on. Feel great, just what you need to get you going.

    I’m willing to try this diet but it’s hard for me to stick to these when I’m
    working from very early to late so will do these on my 4 days off. When I’m working 3 days 7 – 7:30 what else could I do?

  • LT

    I have a real sweet tooth for chocolate how can replace or ignore my cravings?

  • Kitty

    A cup of ice cream is not the same as 175g of ice cream. Actual weights for each food would be really helpful! Cup is a measurement if volume not weight and its not very accurate. For eg a cup of sliced carrots is about half a carrot, a cup of grated carrots is about one carrot, and 175g of carrots is about two carrots. So which is it?!

    Hi LouLou0781,

    Yes you can boil the veg however raw or steamed veg would be more likely to hold nutrients. You can use a small amount of vinegar however again this may contain additives, if you feel like 170g of ice cream so to much simple half the serving.

    Results do vary in every individual therefore we cannot state exactly how much every person will lose, this simply means you can lose up to this amount in one month.

    Me and my mate both started this diet back in January. He was 20 stone and I was 19.1 We both had dramatic weight loss which for me started on the 1st day. Sadly after the 3rd week I could not carry on because of my diabetes ie my blood sugars were affected big time. My mate however carried on and is now an amazing 14 stone.

    I’m going to give it another go but increase the qty’s a little so my sugars aren’t affected too much. Granted my weight loss will be less but any loss is good.

  • M.J.W. Browne

    Hi, against any medical advice anywhere, I’m trying a bit of extreme weight loss. I’m trying to lose anywhere between 10 and 15kg in two months. I’m setting the bar pretty high, I know, but I’m two weeks-ish in, I’ve cut out alcohol (I was drinking a fair amount before), I’ve been running 3 – 4 times a week (half an hour at a time) and doing press-ups every night, and I’m eating much healthier, ie, no take aways, loads of veg, weighing my rice… Anyway, I’m 6′ 6″, and before I started I was 16st 7/235lbs/108kg (the conversions may be a bit off, that’s from memory). The problem is, I know my “lifestyle” change warrants weight loss, and I will lose weight in time, and I know your body is not meant to significantly fluctuate in weight in a short time period. I have a plan to do this diet plan 3 days a week, then eat as I have been doing (healthily) for 4, then back on to this for 3, off for 4 etc… For about a month… More if I see fit. Anyway, I’m just wondering is it worth it? Will it stick (especially if I’m doing a more “body friendly” diet during the week and not going back to boozing and kebabing)? I’m a pretty stubborn and motivated person, so sticking to the diet is no problem, I just want to know if it will help me towards my goal in the not-so-short-term. I’ve heard it’s not an easy diet to do, and I don’t really want to shock my body through it for nothing. Thanks a lot for any advice,
    Michael.

      Hi Alice,

      In regards to meat alternatives, please see the comment below left by Faeries70. Hopefully you may find this of some use.

    I’m a vegan and I have substituted the meat and dairy for vegan alternatives. Braised or grilled tofu in place of the meat, tuna and egg. Vegan hotdogs in place of meat hotdogs and vegan vanilla ice cream instead of dairy ice cream. It’s worked really well.

  • K.

    Hi guys,

    I’ve been dieting for 1month, eating fruits and veggies with around 30mins of jogging atleast 3/4 times a week. Sadly I’ve only lost 8ibs but determined to keep it up (but aim is to loose 2stones in 4-6months. I’m thinking of trying this diet but my question is, for each day do I eat the vegetables raw? Eg on day 1 dinner, do I just eat the lean meat with carrots and green beans or can I make it into a stir fry? And for day 3, can I cook the cauliflower and carrots in a a stir fry?
    Thanks!

    • Erinlogan373

      You can have them either way! Although it made a lovely salad having the cold meat switching the green beans for beetroot, sliced apple and brocolli!!

    I would like to ask what alternative could be used for the following
    A) Grapefruit/Orange
    B) Peanut Butter
    I am inquiring for my partner as she has Barrets Oesophagus from a hiatus hernia with severe acid and her stomach lining extending most of the way up her throat and the result of this she needs surgery. As you may appreciate fruits like grapefruit and oranges would cause severe discomfort and thus are a no no. Regarding the peanut butter again this along with the fruits cause acid reflux. She needs to loose weight in order for the surgery and I have used this diet in the past myself and benefited and would love to know if there where viable alternatives so she could try the diet herself.
    Thanks

    • http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/ Slimming Solutions

      Hi Greame,

      We would recommend using low fat spread to replace the peanut butter, however as for the grapefruit/orange we would recommend any other non acidic fruit.

    i have found the best way to loose weight is to do at least 30 mins of exercise in the morning, eat 3 meals a day and drink plenty of water, also swap your dinner plate for a side plate this way your brain thinks you have a full plate so you feel fuller, while only eating half of what you normaly eat. good luck people.

    Hi, i am wanting to try this diet, but i have problems with some of the veg avaliable. I am not really a big veg eater and i was wondering if there was another soloution, or is this diet simply not for me?

    I really dislike both green beans, cabbage and broccoli. I do like carrots but i prefer them uncooked. Would eating raw carrots be ok or do they have to be cooked? Also is there any possible substitution for the cabbage and broccoli?

    • Slimming Solutions Admin

      Hi James,

      It wouldn’t be a problem to eat the vegetables raw. You can substitute the green beans, cabbage and broccoli for cauliflower, beetroot or more carrots.

      I hope this helps.

    I have started this diet and I am on day 2.
    I weighed myself on the first morning and wasnt going to weigh myself again until the day after day 3. But the scales were there and I just couldn’t help myself.
    I was astounded to see 5lbs off in 1 day.

    What I was wanting to know is for tonight when I cook the broccoli (which I am dreading) can I use any of the following; crushed garlic, chilli powder or chilli flakes, stock granuals?

    Thanks

    I started this diet today. Felt really hungry between breakfast and lunch. I get up at 4.30am everyday so the gaps between meals for me are longer than most peoples will be, so i took the apple off of the lunch menu and had that at 10am instead of having it later on. I can’t see that making any difference. If anyone wouldnt recommend doing this please advise why?
