The title of the 3 Hour Diet might make it sound a bit more miraculous than it really is. Designed by the renowned fitness trainer Jeorge Cruise, the 3 Hour Diet focuses on speeding up the metabolism by eating every 3 hours. Sorry for those of you who thought you might be able to get the perfect body in 3 hours, it just isn't so. However, eating every 3 hours has become a very popular approach to dieting as of recently.
The 3 Hour Diet is less restrictive than many other diets, which makes it appealing to the average consumer looking to lose weight. Those tired of starvation type diets will love being able to eat every 3 hours. Eating every 3 hours averages out to about 5 meals a day, more than enough for most people.
So what's the different between eating 3 meals a day and eating 5 meals a day? It is believed that when only eating 3 meals a day, the body is trained to horde calories back until the next meal. Eating 5 meals a day is supposed to trick your body into thinking that it needs to be in a constant state of calorie burning, thus speeding up your metabolism.
On the of the greatest appeals of the 3 Hour Diet is that it doesn't restrict fast food or processed foods. These types of foods are usually shunned by most diets. Allowing such foods into the diet gives a more realistic approach to dealing with the temptations and lifestyles of the typical dieter. Some people don't have time to cook, so it's easier to pop in a low fat television dinner than prepare a whole meal from scratch. While other times, you'll be going to a fast food restaurant with a group of co-workers and don't want to be the odd man or woman out.
The 3 Hour Diet is a great starter diet for anyone just starting a weight loss program. However, it might be hard to sustain considering that the program does not support plateauing, something common to most dieters. Regardless, this is still a great diet that has worked wonders for a lot of people.
