Easiest 3 Day Diet
Three day diets can be brutal...
Often disgusting and usually unhealthy.
They give us a fast way to drop a few pounds as long as we're willing to go through it.
At SkinnyB we get literally thousands of requests a month for these kinds of diets.
After digging and researching, we realized the easiest and healthiest 3 day diet was right in front of us:
A 3 day smoothie cleanse.
It covered all our requirements:
- It works. It creates a caloric deficit so you lose plenty of weight.
- It's extremely nutritious. It leaves you healthier than when you started.
- It's delicious. Smoothies are refreshing so the diet doesn't feel like torture.
- You don't have to go hungry because the recipe we've developed is filling. And you can drink as much as you want.
If you want to jump start your weight loss or just reset your weight after too much indulgence, you're going to like what we have in store today.
The best part:
You don't have to go hungry to lose weight on this diet.
We've laid out the details of a delicious and healthy 3 Day Smoothie Cleanse that will help you lose a bunch of weight while restoring your health and nutrition.
It's the perfect balance.
The smoothie recipe we recommend is super filling and you can drink as much as you want, whenever you feel hungry for the entire three days.
Here's the Deal:
The best diets are successful for 2 reasons:
They are easy and they are effective.
The 3 Day Smoothie Cleanse is both.
All the Nutrients Curb Cravings
If you read the blog, you’ve heard this before:
When the body isn’t getting enough real nutrition (as in vitamins and minerals), it asks for more food in hopes of getting what it needs to function well.
This means you get hungry.
With the 3 day smoothie cleanse, you lose weight fast without depriving your body of vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
So, instead of starving your body of nutrients, you’re just dramatically reducing calories.
Fibrous Food Makes You Feel Full Longer
Green smoothies are full of leafy vegetables and lots of fruit.
Both of which contain loads of nutrients and fiber.
You're probably wondering:
What does fiber have to do with losing weight?
The awesome part of dieting with fiber is that it makes you feel full, but it passes through your body, rather than being absorbed.
This means fullness without calories.
That’s why you can drink as much smoothie as you want during the three days.
Set It and Forget It
You can make up a huge batch of smoothies once a day and not worry about food preparation or meal decisions whatsoever.
We also like to make up a triple or quadruple batch and freeze it in freezer bags.
You do have to remember to move a new days worth to the fridge before you go to bed if you chose this easy option.
You Can Launch a New Lifestyle
This is the only 3 day diet we’ve found that can become a slippery slope into permanent weight loss.
You can easily stretch this cleanse out for 10-14 days and lose serious weight, without depriving your body of nutrients.
Once you’ve retrained your body to accept all these vegetables, you can keep it going. For more on this, check out Skinny for Life.
How to Do the Three Day Smoothie Cleanse
We have prepared for you a very special smoothie recipe that includes tons of nutrients and fiber as well as options for adding fat burning protein, which we recommend highly.
You will consume nothing but this smoothie all three days.
Drink as much as you want, whenever you feel like it.
We recommend sipping slowly, rather than gulping it down (it’s better for blood sugar levels).
The best part:
YOU CAN DRINK COFFEE!
Caffeine has been shown to boost metabolism and provide more focus and energy throughout the day.
As long as you do not add creamer or sweetener, you can have as much coffee (or tea) as you normally drink.
When you feel hungry:
Either drink 8 ounces of water or have some of your smoothie.
You should consume at least 64 oz of smoothie a day and roughly that much in water.

Maximize Your Weight Loss
Drink equal amounts of water and smoothie (or something close to that). Without enough water, you risk constipation and bloating—the last thing you want. Allowed beverages are limited to water, coffee and tea. Nothing added to them. No flavored or vitamin water either. They're full of calories...
