Lose 10 Pounds in a Week: Day Three

Updated on October 15, 2015
Bilaras profile image

Haris is a registered Dietitian and Health blogger providing clinical counseling and writes under name of Bilaras on health blogs.

Day three is an important day in the seven-day plan. Today your menu combines fruits and vegetables, with a few restrictions. Fruits and vegetables are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are also low in calories.

Keep in mind that eating a healthy diet does not mean that you have to eat less; in fact, since there are fewer calories in your food, eating more is perfectly fine.

Remember to eat at the same regular intervals each day. Start today with:

  • Fruit, preferably raw and low-sugar.
  • Green tea or coffee (black or with skimmed milk.)

At lunchtime, have:

  • Fruit and vegetable salad (recipe below.)

At dinner, have:

  • Fruit and vegetable salad.
  • More raw fruits and vegetables.

Tips for Success From Readers's Questions

Some answers to past questions about the Seven Day Diet.
• Grilling vegetables can make them taste better, but it changes the nutrition, so only grill a few vegetables if any.
• Frozen vegetables are fine.
• Avocado is allowed on fruit days.
• Some weight gain is normal when beginning a diet. After your body gets used to the new routine, you will begin to shed weight.
• No oily products like butter or cheese. Choose raw vegetables or vegetables that you have boiled or sautéed slightly in a small amount of olive oil.
• Choose raw vegetables or vegetables that you have boiled or sautéed slightly in a small amount of olive oil.
• No potatoes or bananas today.
• Eat fresh fruits and stay away from juices.
This salad combines the sweetness of fruit with the crunch of fresh vegetables. Remember not to save any salad for the next day. Make a fresh batch tomorrow, if you like.

Sleep, Stress, and Weight Loss

Good sleep is critical to healthy weight loss. Conversely, poor sleep can lead to weight gain. Researchers believe that sleep is the single most important thing for healthy body functions. Similarly, to lose weight, eating the right foods and burning calories is very important.

  • Why is sleep so important? The answer is that you need sleep to function normally, Not sleeping well or at all increases food cravings by throwing off your hormone balance. These hormones, sometimes referred as "hunger hormones," increase with sleep deprivation or a disturbed routine.
  • Stress and weight gain: Stress is part of daily life. It is a natural phenomenon that everyone experiences to some extent. Researchers believe that sometimes it contributes to weight gain. Even if you follow a healthier lifestyle, chronically high stress can prevent you from losing weight—or even cause weight gain. The body responds to stress in this way: The brain instructs the cells to release powerful hormones, which creates a burst of adrenaline. The brains sends energy to the body energy so it can effectively respond to the situation. Cortisol is released at the same time, telling your body to replenish used energy even if you haven't used many calories. This causes you to feel hungry. The most obvious option is to eat something that packs a lot of calories. People usually go for sweet or salty fast food. The cycle is called "emotional eating."

Does stress drive you to eat more?

      Loosing weight is tough but maintaining it is not, stay with this diet plan and mix it up as you like. But don't do over eating. Keep your self busy with routines and you wont have to eat more.

      Day 3: I weighed in at 145! How awesome! This diet does work. I have lost 3 pounds since I started 3 days ago. My clothes are not as tight on me anymore and I feel light. On day 2, I got a couple hunger pangs with the veggie diet but I just drank more water and ate more veggies. I'm telling you the water really does feel you up and keep you from getting hungry and it flushes your system out. Keep drinking lots of water! Im on my way gonna be bringing sexy back!:) Okay off to work now. Stay tuned....

      This is my 3rd day. I have followed the diet. only thing is I ate the boiled potato with vegetable's that were made with water a table spoon of olive oil over the whole thing that I cooked.

      One problem I have only lost 2 pounds. I have been exercising a lot and following the diet strictly why am I not losing weight?

      My mom is doing the diet with me and she lost a pound more and she even added a piece of chicken yesterday where i didn't. I also had a carrot at night and water.

      @emma its possible but if you are dedicated to it . Weight doesn't matter if you feel and look good. So 40 shouldn't be the target looking good and feeling healthy must be the target, Follow this diet plan for 2 weeks and take 4 to 5 days off and have balanced diet in those days and then go for another week.

      It seems like a great diet with postive results will start tomorrow.. just looking at the not to eat list.. creams etc.. Tells me what i have been doing wrong in the past.. My only recommendation is that .. could you either not list vegatable and fruit alternates.. this might help people who have either a dislike or hard time finding some items.. and cut down on the amount of questions you receive...

      will post back results..

      @karenburgess some time its very hard to eat something that you really cannot eat and sometimes there are just man made allergies that make people uncomfortable with certain food items. So alternates are an option but they are not THE option.

      @sophie11 parts you mentioned are a bit tough ones but i have recommend cycling exercise for best results. If you do cycling while lying on floor then you need to do it for 15 min daily . lay down on floor put you hand behind your head , lift up your legs together and try to mimic the cycling . Try 3 sets each for 5 mins.

    • rymandev profile image

      rymandev 4 years ago from Tri Cities, WA

      Day 3. I've followed this plan strictly. I'm a male in my mid 40's and have put on weight since spinal surgery made me fairly sedentary. Like 35 pounds in a year! I've been using the FitNow "Lose It" Android app to track all my intake (love the bar code scanner function) and RunKeeper to track my walking. I've been walking 20 minutes for 1.1 miles (route around neighborhood). Didn't look at the scale until night 3 (couldn't help it, curiousity kills).

      EIGHT POUNDS lost! And more energy today than anytime in the last year!

      Is it hard not to cheat? Not really.

      Now let's see what a week does. I'm thinking of keeping with this diet for 2 weeks and then going to the healthy diet you've posted.

      Thanks!

      this seems kinda drastic...I've been reading the comments trying to decide if i should do this. I have no doubt that I will receive results, but with people being dizzy and all and the chance of gaining it all back when it is over I might just take the long route...

      how healthy is it to change everything for your body so fast?

      Just started day 3 and I've already lost almost 4lbs. Yesterday I ate steamed kale, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and a moderate amount of chickpeas through the whole day. Just made a big pot and went to it whenever I was hungry. I added Sriracha and Braggs liquid aminos to each bowl for flavor. I also had 2 cups of tea.

      This diet is great so far, and quite healthy. But...why are people asking if they can add things like cheese and meat to this? Yeah, sure, do that if you want to sabotage your efforts :P. That junk is unhealthy, just watch Forks Over Knives and see for yourself.

      Day 3!! here I come. I have lost over 3 pounds so far - I think 3.6 is the total, which means day 1 I lost two pounds and day 2 I lost 1.6 - I would NEVER have thought this would have worked but here I am on day 3 PUMPED at what I saw on the scale. I really just wanted to lose 10 pounds because I was injured and haven't been able to exercise. I haven't gained weight because Ive been trying so hard to eat ok but I haven't LOST a thing without a real struggle. This diet is NOT a real struggle. Last night i ate such a huge salad I couldn't finish it. It was great. I'm going to be very curious to see how the rest of the week goes, but I'm so impressed so far. Thank you.

      @Ida all parents want their children to eat something when they are on diet. They care a lot that's why they are your parents. You just need to show them that you are probably eating a far better diet then you normally do, Fruits and vegetables have all important nutritions in them . All i can say is that you don't have to restart just continue and you will get results.

      Day 3 and thrilled. I've lost 4lbs, but more importantly I haven't felt compulsively hungry. I feel alert and full of energy. I actually had to force myself to eat lunch and drink plenty of water. I still have to prepare separate meals for my children but I don't feel like cheating.

      I love beans. Would i be cheating if I have that and a side salad. How many portions may I have in a day?I feel like having beans would be cheating.

      @Sunset101 if you are talking about drinking tea then yes you should give it an hour at least . Tea has a significant effect on metabolism so to be on safe side you should avoid tea with meals.

      Egg plant is good.

      Hi this is a great diet! But I have a question.

      On the fruit, veggie, and fruit+veggie days, would I be able to consume the Just Fruit and Just Veggie products (not as a meal, but as a chip craving substitute). The ingredients are the actual fruit or veggie, freeze dried. Nothing else! I buy them at Whole Foods.

      These are amazing because they stop my snack craving.

      In moderation, would these be okay for this diet on the fruit and veggie days? Just as a snack? Say like 3 Dixie cup sizes?

      @FreezeDriedd all processed food items lose some key nutrients so if yo can find fresh fruits and vegetables then that would be a better choice. More important thing is to prepare your own food as it helps with food cravings.

      @aisha divide this whole menu into 3 to four meals . Two major meals and two minor meals. One major meal at morning and rest in evening after fast. You have to be vary careful about water and meal combination as i understand the limitation of time. Do not eat and drink a lot of water at same time . Minor meals will help you control food cravings.

      It's the end of my 3rd day and I'm down 3 pounds so far. I hope I shed more. To be honest I haven't been drinking 10-12 glasses of water at all. I can't drink that much water. It's too much. I have been drinking about 1-3 cups of green tea daily. I'm 5'7 and was 127-128 lbs and now I'm 123-124. My scale goes between 2 numbers always. Anyways this is my experience so far. I have to say this diet isn't easy. I like brownies and cookies and I'm limited to fruits and veggies. Yuck

      Also on 2nd and 3rd day of dieting I couldn't just eat raw vegetables and not starve to death so what I did was chop up 2 tomatoes and 1 jalapeno pepper and sauteed them on a pan (using canola oil pan spray). After they got nice and soft how I like them I put them on a plate and put sliced avocado pieces on top of them so I felt like I was eating a real meal. Not dry vegetables. I looked up various articles on sauteing and it's the best way to cook vegetables to maintain as many nutrients as possible. Is this cooking going to effect my diet or no?

      Edward Harris MSc 3 years ago from Earth

      @vimal 10 glass is somewhere between 2 - 2.5 litters depends on your glass size.

      small bowl 300 ml should be enough but you can have more if you want.

Any way,

      day one was hard, two was better, Soup was awesome , bananas made you appreciate life, milk made me feel healthy , didn't have the salad , rice was AWESOME, grapefruit made me want to throw up =)

      I've got a question, Bilaras. Am now in my day 3 of the diet (which I have been following very strictly, no cheating, and yesterday consumed even less food than you recommend due to feeling full from what I was eating). Before the diet, I was 60,4 kg. I check the scales every morning, and only this morning I noticed 1 kg loss. Why could the weight shift be so slow? Thank you in advance for your reply.

      Well this is my 3rd successful time doing this Diet and I'd like to say I don't think People Realize how many "Fruits and Veggies" you could really eat so i made a list to help people =)

      1.Avocado is a fruit and if you don't like it with just salt and pepper drench it in lime

      2.Make guacamole or tomato salt pepper and lime salsa and dip celery in it

      3.For dinner make a bowl of as many veggies as you like Broccoli peas corn and carrots

      4.Apples are pretty filling

      5.so is water and Green tea which you can make and keep in a pitcher in the fridge and it taste just like Arizona lol

      that's all I have so far but I think it helps =) ive lost 10-12 lbs every time love this diet, hate exercise lol

      Hi, I started this diet yesterday with my husband. He felt really bad with only having fruits yesterday. Today, we had boiled potatoes in the morning and I made salad for lunch (cabbage, tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, capsicum, lemon juice) and seasoned with salt, paprika and oregano. Is it ok? Can I season salads because without seasoning, it tastes so bland and I want to puke. I am not using any oil. In the evening, I boiled fresh corn kernels. Plus, we didn't weigh ourselves before starting on the diet and I am not sure how much we have lost by now. I feel hunger pangs after every hour and I try to curb them by drinking water. My husband is not taking enough water. 3 glasses a day maximum. Kindly guide me if our plan will still work. My father says you guys are doing wrong by starving yourselves.

Can I take tea daily to avoid headaches without sugar and less milk? I hope you reply soon I m 73 kgs and I want to come in the range of 60s

      Thanks in advance anticipating quick response

      berries and grape are hard to find in my Country and are expensive, I live in Guyana (South America) . Good thing is there are lots of fresh vegetables and fruits like - cabbage, spinach, cucumber, tomatoes, cassava, sweet potato, mango, pine and carrots.. could i use those instead of apples and grapes?

      Every time my weight starts to go up I use this diet to get back on track... I love this diet! (Over time I've slightly modified it to suit me.) Sometimes I don't reach the 7th day, but i always lose at least 6 pounds anyway. I always see an improvement in my skin and nails, it is a definite cleanse! It taught me that eating well makes a big difference!

      @Kristen Munoz i watch all my comments activity but can not reply all, as there are so many. Do this diet for two weeks then switch to my 30 day diet plus some simple workout like daily walk or even running. Gym always help with motivation.

      Gonna start this tomorrow, I was looking at the comments and I feel really excited to do it, everyone seems so positive! You're a star for sharing this with everyone xx. Just one question, because of my life I can only find time to exercise on Tuesday's and Fridays, I do intense workouts on these days, will that effect results?

      i'm on day 3 now and so far I have lost 4 pounds. i found day 3 very difficult because my stomach felt very empty. I had 2 pieces of fish in addition to fruits and vegetables for dinner. Also, i had about 3 tea spoons of honey. I exercise everyday, but will the fish and honey I had on day 3 affect the overall effect of this diet? Can i also add a teaspoon of honey to my tea?

      It's the 3rd day and bedtime. I'm hungry and fatigued but I don't wanna eat another vegetable or a fruit, so my question is:

      Is rusk okay? Can I have it? And if I've already had it, would it affect the diet?

      I did this diet for 24 days and lost 46 lbs . I'm much bigger then some I'm sure. I refuse to believe I need gastro so this diet was my last resort and it's done wonders . But I do 24 days and 2 days off. This is a great diet.
