What is the 3–Hour Diet?

Some diets sound too good to be true. The 3–Hour Diet falls into this
category. What else can be said about a diet that encourages eating
candy? If you're interested in a diet that let's you eat all the
chocolate you want, then this one is for you.

The three hour diet is kind of like having a newborn baby: every three hours, you eat. That's it. The whole plan. The visualizing part of the program comes in handy, but I found myself picturing really big decks of cards! Maybe that's why, after a week, I didn't lose any weight. At the end of the second week, I was bored out of my mind. They say this is a healthy diet because you're never really depriving yourself, but I found I was constantly thinking of what I was eating. Planing for my next meal before I finished even one. The good thing about this diet program is that you don't need to take diet pills, or buy special diet food. It's just a healthy diet - but one you need to put far too much time and effort into the planning of. I'd say skip on this one and go for something like the south beach diet or weight watchers instead. That's my plan.

The 3–Hour Diet isn't what you think. It doesn't involve being on a
diet for only three hours. Instead, the diet involves doing things in
threes. You must eat breakfast no later than one hour of getting up. You
must then eat every three hours up until three hours before bedtime.
You stop eating at least three hours before bedtime, and have nothing
else until breakfast the next morning. This diet is supposed to increase
your metabolism, increase your energy, and decrease your appetite.

What do you eat every three hours?

Unlike most diets, the 3–Hour Diet doesn't really tell you what you
can or can't eat. It's more focused on portion control as opposed to
counting calories. You're supposed to visualize what your plate
(recommended 9 inches) should look like covered with food. For example,
you can visualize a deck of traditional playing cards to see the size of
your meat servings. You can eat chicken, cheese, eggs, fish, or any
type of meat you want. However, the serving can't be larger than a stack
of playing cards.

Other recommendations include visualizing a Rubik's cube to represent
the amount of carbohydrates you can have. A cap from a water bottle can
be used to represent the amount of fat you can eat. And a stack of
three DVD cases represents the correct servings of fruits and
vegetables. The theory behind the 3–Hour Diet is that all food is good
in moderation. So instead of telling you to avoid certain foods, you're
encouraged to eat what you want in moderation. If you balance your meals
correctly, each meal should be no more than 400 calories.

The major complaint about the 3–Hour Diet is that it's too
complicated. Timing is everything with this diet. You must eat every
three hours or the diet won't work. If you have breakfast at 8 am, then
you must have a snack by 11 am. It doesn't matter if you're too busy to
eat, stuck in a meeting, or have gone back to sleep. You must eat every
three hours like clockwork. This diet also requires you to basically
follow the same routine every single day.

Supporters of the diet say that eating every three hours helps speed
your metabolism. Following the diet correctly can cause you to lose at
least 2 pounds per week. The problem is that some healthcare
professionals say the diet doesn't speed metabolism.

Some experts say the only way to really speed your metabolism is to
get daily exercise. They say it doesn't matter if you eat every three
hours or every six hours, you must exercise to increase your metabolism.
Some people who've used the 3–Hour Diet reported gaining weight after
having to eat every three hours. Additionally, there's no proof that
meal timing actually helps weight loss.
