1. The first day of this diet you
fast. During the fast, drink plenty of water.
2. The second day you consume only fruit and
3. The third day you consume only vegetables
and vegetable juices.
4. The rest of the week you eat
normally. Just don't overdo it.
You can use this diet for as many weeks as you want.
You may want to do it once a month.

It is impossible not to do so.
For those who cannot make it through the
day because you get a headache, try mixing the water with an
equal amount of pure fruit juice (no extra ingredients such as
"corn syrup" or some chemical).
Fasting does many things for the body. It
enables the body to heal naturally. Digestion uses up strength. Fasting
also appears to release a hormone that stimulates the immune system. It
also gives your intestinal system a chance to clean itself and the body
time to flush out the waste products of metabolism. A regular
practice of fasting will help prevent a buildup or backlog of metabolic
debris in the body, diminishing the possibility of serious illness.
Adapting to Your Personal Needs
You can adapt this diet to fit your own
preferences. You can drink herbal teas during your fast day if you find
it difficult to drink only water. Pick one that will benefit your
personal health needs such as bilberry tea for vision, peppermint for
digestion, regular tea (green, black, or oolong) for the phytochemical
disease-fighting benefits, etc.
Another way to adapt the three-day diet is
to combine the second and third day for both of those days. This means
consume fruits, vegetables, and their juices for both days. You could
also do only fruits for those two days or only vegetables for those two
There are two special fasts in the Bible which you may
want to try also.
Each one is done once a year.
In the spring at Passover the feast (fast)
of unleavened bread is observed for a week. This is merely doing
without leavening for a week. No yeast products, nothing with baking
powder or baking soda for a week. This gives your body the necessary
rest from yeast consumption once a year.
In the fall at the
Atonement from sunset to sunset (25 hours) you refrain from
consuming anything whatsoever. This means no water either. This is
another once a year rest the body needs.
You can experiment and find out what is
best for you. You may also come up with something we've missed since
everyone has different needs.

Skipping breakfast is not an effective way
to lose weight. Researchers investigated the relationship between
breakfast type, energy intake and body mass index (BMI). They found
that it's not just breakfast but the type of food eaten that is
connected with BMI.
Obesity is a risk factor for
cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancer, high blood pressure,
and type 2 diabetes. From 1960 to 1994 obesity in American adults
almost doubled from 12.8% to 22.5%. At the same time, between 1965 and
1991, the proportion of adults skipping breakfast increased from 14% to
25%. Some of the reasons people give for skipping breakfast include
lack of time for preparing and consuming food, and concerns about
excess body weight.
An inverse relationship has been found
between BMI and breakfast consumption. Breakfast eaters tend to have
lower BMI than those who skip breakfast, and obese individuals are more
likely to skip breakfast. It has been found that moderately obese women
lose more weight when they consume 70% of their daily energy intake
before noon instead of in the afternoon or evening.
Information from the Third National Health
and Nutrition Examination Survey (N HANES III), a large population-based
study conducted in the United States, 1988-1994, was analyzed for
breakfast type, total daily energy intake, and BMI. There were several
categories studied, "skippers" (people who skip breakfast),
"meat/eggs," "ready-to-eat cereal (RTEC)," "cooked cereal," "breads,"
"quick breads" (e.g. waffles, French toast), "fruit/vegetables,"
"dairy," "fats/sweets," and "beverages." Other factors taken into
consideration were age, gender, race, smoking, alcohol intake, physical
activity and socio-economic status.
The researchers found those who ate
ready-to-eat cereal, cooked cereal, or quick breads for breakfast had a
significantly lower BMI compared to the skippers and the meat/eggs
eaters. The skippers and fruit/vegetable eaters had the lowest daily
energy intake and meat/egg eaters had the highest daily energy intake.
The skippers, meat/eggs eaters, and dairy eaters had the highest BMIs.
