The three-day diet has been circulated under a number of names
such as the "British Heart Institute three-day diet", the "Sacred
Heart Memorial Hospital diet", the "Soup Diet”, the "Pre-Op diet"
and the “Seven-day fat burning diet".
These diets are not connected with the British Heart
Foundation; their origin is unknown. Although these diets
have in the past appeared to be effective as the initial results
can be dramatic, the results are rarely long lasting and weight
gain can be greater than the amount originally lost.
