St. Joseph's Three-Day Diet

St. Joseph’s three-day diet, essentially a three-day fad diet, may produce weight loss in a short period of time. Three-day, restricted-calorie diets often use the names of medical facilities such as St. Joseph’s Hospital; however, their true origins remain unknown. Most three-day diets promise a weight loss of up to 10 lbs. in three days, according to Consult your doctor before beginning St. Joseph’s Three-Day Diet or any other three-day diet.

Three-Day Diets

The majority of three-day diets are designed for short-term use only. They provide a daily menu of specific foods that purportedly chemically react with each other to boost metabolism and burn fat. After following a restricted-calorie diet for three days, most plans recommend taking a break for two to five days and then continuing this pattern until achieving weight loss goals. Many three-day diets restrict calories to 1,000 per day, but some versions only allow 700 calories daily. While three-day diets reportedly help with temporary weight loss, a lack of scientific evidence exists to prove their effectiveness.


While various three-day diet programs exist, most contain similar menu items and guidelines such as allowing the use of salt, pepper, mustard, vinegar, herbs and other seasonings. You can usually drink coffee or tea with each meal and can substitute specified vegetables and fruits, but cannot snack between meals. One common day-one menu begins with a breakfast of half of a grapefruit and a piece of dry toast with 1 tbsp. of peanut butter. You consume 1/2 cup of tuna and a piece of dry toast for lunch; and consume 3 oz. of lean meat, 1 cup each of green beans and carrots, one apple and 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream for dinner. Days two and three contain similar menus items, but substitute foods such as two hot dogs for 3 oz. of lean meat.


Although the St. Joseph’s Three-Day Diet may provide a simple, short-term, low-cost and easy way to lose weight, a good diet must be sustainable. Three-day diets fail to give users the tools necessary to keep weight off, such as a healthy lifetime diet and an exercise regimen. A three-day diet may produce quick, but short-lived weight loss results. Some three-day diets suggest that you return to your normal eating habits after losing weight. In addition, the pounds dropped after this short diet most likely occur from water weight loss, according to Diet Health.

Health Risks

Extended use of diets with severely restricted caloric intake, such as the St. Joseph Three-Day Diet, can pose serious or deadly health risks. The number of daily calories consumed on a three-day diets falls significantly under the approximately 2,000 calories per day recommended by the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. People who misuse low-calorie diets may increase their risks of malnutrition -- or the imbalance of nutrients needed and those consumed. According to Merck Manuals, fewer than 1,000 calories a day produces inadequate nutrition -- causing the body to obtain nutrients from its own fat stores, tissues and organs -- which can result in serious health problems and death.

How To Lose Up To 10 lbs In A Single Week

Considering the Cabbage Soup Diet? …You’ve come to the right place!!

Hi, and welcome to my site! I have gathered lots of great Cabbage Soup Diet information for you.

For those of you who want a “quick start” here are a few links to other pages on my site. For the rest of you, scroll down to get started!

If you have a special occasion coming up or you simply need to lose weight fast, the Cabbage Soup Diet may be just what you need.

Although not suitable for long-term weight loss, the Cabbage Soup Diet is a low-fat, high-fiber diet that will help you get into shape fast before you embark on a more moderate long-term eating plan.

Do you have questions about the Cabbage Soup Diet? There’s a good chance you’ll find your answer on my Cabbage Soup Frequently Asked Questions page.

Pros and Cons of the Cabbage Soup Diet

Pros: You’ll lose weight fast, and for the week, you can eat as much of the foods listed in the program as you want. Although the diet is only for seven days (and shouldn’t be followed for longer), it provides a great “kick-start” for a more moderate diet.

Cons: Some people find the soup bland. Others report feeling light-headed, weak, and have suffered from decreased concentration (although I hear that many people think the diet is worth the effort anyway, since they lose so much weight!).

What the Cabbage Soup Diet is NOT

The Cabbage Soup Diet is sometimes referred to as the “Mayo Clinic Diet,” the “Sacred Heart Hospital Diet,” and by many other names. Interestingly, this diet is not affiliated with either the Mayo Clinic or the Sacred Heart Hospital system.

Number 1 Reason why the Cabbage Soup Diet Fails

As mentioned, the soup can tend to get a bit bland, especially since you are eating it several time a day….every day for a week. For this reason alone, a lot of people drop the diet.

To liven things up a bit, I came up with a couple different spice packs that can be added to your soup recipe. These packs are premeasured, all that you have to do is to add one of pack per batch of your cabbage soup. The soup comes out very tasty – and for that reason it helps you stay on your diet.

The Problem With Most “Mainstream” Diets

Most diets – especially “mainstream” diets, and those recommended by major medical institutions – work slowly but surely, resulting in around 1 pound of weight loss per week.

This “slow and steady” way to lose weight is certainly healthy, but suffers from one major flaw: most people get discouraged and quit whatever diet they are on if they don’t see results quickly. This is how the Cabbage Soup Diet can be your savior and catalyst into a more long term solution.

Seven Keys to Success

  1. Follow the diet to the letter!
  2. Drink at least 4 glasses of water per day (or more!).
  3. Remember – it is only seven days long!
  4. Complement the diet with a quality daily multi-vitamin.
  5. Print information from this site and refer to it daily (especially the 7 Day Plan!).
  6. Eat plenty of soup – the more you eat, the more you should lose! Do not try to starve yourself or you’ll probably cheat (this is what we don’t want).
  7. Add my spice pack to liven up the soup to add variety and make it taste great. 🙂

Sometimes we all need to get away and recharge our batteries!
