The diet is not too difficult to keep and nutritionists claim that it helps you lose 7-15 pounds in 2 weeks, the maximum amount of time allowed for it. The diet itself means eating foods high in lean protein and low in carbohydrates, such as vegetables, salads and fruit and staying away from oil, mayonnaise and the rest of salad dressings. Oh, and no alcohol, please.
The Three Day Diet
The Three Day Diet, also known as Cardiac diet, is for those who want to lose weight in no time (10 pounds in 3 days!). It is called cardiac because it’s used in hospitals for people undergoing heart surgeries. It only lasts 3 days and then you have to go back to your normal diet. The diet involves eating lean meat, grapefruit, tuna, eggs, vegetables and ketchup, salt and pepper as seasonings. Also, it will take a lot of will power from you if you have a sweet tooth, because the diet does not allow the use of sugar in any form.
The Atkins Diet

The diet is said to help to lose 15 pounds in just 2 weeks and consists of several phases.
