Three Day Chemical Breakdown Diet

The three day chemical breakdown diet, also known as the Birmingham Hospital Diet is a diet famously known for helping you lose nine to ten pounds in three days. I have written about this diet before, but at that point I just referred to it as the three day diet. Recently I was asked what the three day chemical breakdown diet was and after a bit of searching, found that it was the same thing. The bottom line is that it works, though the likelihood is that the weight lost is water weight.

      Ok, that’s fine. What do you eat?

      From that we can figure out what has the closest nutritional profile to Tuna and then you can give it a go. Though for fast weight loss, and a diet that is easy to stick to, consider trying the Slow Carb Diet.
