Hi everyone! My name is Samantha (32 y.o. and I’m from LA). I have two amazing kids and this is my story about using The 3 Week Diet plan from Brian Flatt. I hope it will help to avoid something mistakes in using this diet plan.
When it comes to dieting, I’m a seasoned pro. If there’s a fad diet that someone is on, I’m on it, I’m going to be on it soon, or I’ve tried it before. Unfortunately, many of them do nothing but deprive me of the food I want and restrict my diet more than I’m comfortable with, which is why they fail. While there are some that do work and help me shed a few pounds, this is always temporary until I fail and go back to my normal way of eating (which isn’t healthy). This is a vicious cycle that I’m not proud of, but fortunately, it ultimately led me to finding something effective.
If you’re like me and are tired of “yo-yo” dieting, or simply trying every diet only to end up gaining weight, I’m going to share what worked for me: The 3 Week Diet. Whether you’ve heard of this or you’re just looking for stories of diets that have worked for others, I hope you stay tuned to hear more about my journey. It’s one that’s full of upsets as well as victories that have taught me more about myself, my relationship with food, and my outlook on losing weight. Who would have thought that all this could be accomplished through a fad diet? Well, to be honest, it’s definitely not a fad. While it might say “3 weeks”, the truth is, it teaches you how to lose weight for life.
Chapter #1. My Introduction to The 3 Week Diet
I recently saw an ad for this The 3 Week Diet online and was intrigued by the name. Three weeks? I could do three weeks. I really wanted to shed some holiday weight and three weeks sounded like just the right amount of time to clean out my system and go down a notch on my belt (which had been steadily increasing). I signed up with excitement as a wolfed down my “last burrito” on the comfort of my couch. As I finished my meal, I began to read the book. I have read dieting books before but immediately this one stood out.
From the very beginning of The 3 Week Diet, it was clear to me that the author wanted to bring forth facts about weight loss. Instead of jumping in and promising me 10-pound weight loss in a few days, it started out with common myths, answers to questions, and real facts about losing weight. It even gave in-depth information about weight loss as a whole and why certain things work and others don’t. While a few pieces of information I had seen before, the vast majority was brand new to me. And, if I’m being honest, I was shocked to learn most of the facts (including that there’s no such thing as fat-burning food).
The information I learned about nutrition was also surprising but really made sense and made me think about how I had been abusing my body with terrible crash diets in the past. On some particularly terrible diets, I would only eat 500 calories per day, and they were unhealthy calories at that. Everything I learned in The 3 Week Diet was like a piece of a puzzle that I had never bothered to put together before. I was ashamed that after so many years of trying to diet I had never learned this stuff but glad that I was learning it now instead of never.
Might I mention that everything I was learning was actually in just the first part of the book? I hadn’t actually gotten to the “3 week diet” part and I had already learned so much. In fact, I started eating healthier before I actually started the diet. Once I understood how losing weight actually works, everything just clicked for me. However, that didn’t mean I was ready to tackle weight loss on my own. I knew I needed a boost and I was more eager than ever to get started. Who actually looks forward to starting a diet? This felt different and I was glad that it wasn’t something I was dreading.
Before I talk about my journey on The 3 Week Diet, I want to give you an idea of some topics I learned about beforehand. The information about these topics was crucial, because without it, I wouldn’t have understood why I was eating certain foods, why I would lose weight more quickly at certain times, and how weight loss in general works. Here’s what I was armed with that helped me with success down the road:
I have always known that water is essential but I never bothered to learn why. I now drink more water than ever thanks to what I learned in this The 3 Week Diet.
Nutrition is a word thrown around a lot and I assumed it just meant you were eating a lot of salads and fish. However, it’s so much more than that. Once I learned what good nutrition means and why it’s so important, it was fun to put together meals that actually benefited me.
I have always thought that fat was the enemy and something I should avoid. However, that’s not necessarily the case. When you read The 3 Week Diet, you might be surprised by what you learn about fat as well!
Protein is so important and something I have never gotten enough of because I don’t make it a priority. Now that I’ve learned about protein and why it’s key for weight loss, it’s always a part of my daily diet.
For most people, carbohydrates are the enemy. However, did you know that not all carbs are bad carbs? I can’t believe I wasted so many years avoiding certain foods because they had carbohydrates. There are certainly those that should be eaten on occasion, but when it comes to others, they can be consumed freely.
I always thought that my metabolism was my metabolism and that was that. I never really understood what impacted it, including deprivation in my own diet. I was glad that this book included an entire section on mastering the metabolism, as it gave me the tools needed to do everything possible to enhance it.
Superfoods aren’t as hard to find as I thought! I actually had a few in my house and the others were easy to find at the grocery store. After reading about nutrition in The 3 Week Diet, it was clear to me why these superfoods are so beneficial and should be staples in my diet.
While learning about all of those topics at first seemed overwhelming, it’s laid out in such an easy-to-understand way, that I didn’t feel burdened to make note cards or give myself a pop quiz. The 3 Week Diet isn’t sugarcoating facts and isn’t making information difficult to understand. Instead, it conveys every tidbit of info in a way that anyone can understand so you actually want to learn more. I really enjoyed these mini topics and I learned more about nutrition and weight loss than I have in my entire life.
Why doesn’t every diet give you all of this information? Probably because they’re in it to make a buck and don’t care if you actually sustain weight loss. That’s also why most diets are temporary and will cause you to gain weight soon after you stop. When you’re armed with education, you’re much more likely to make healthy decisions that benefit you in the long run. And because it’s all laid out in one book, you don’t have to spend hours scouring the internet trying to figure out what’s true and what’s a myth. This takes so much of the work out of learning nutrition, and to me, made it feel like I was getting personalized advice from a nutritionist.
Chapter #2. Learning the Rules of Fat Loss
The rules of fat loss that follow all of the surprisingly interesting information above weren’t initially of much interest to me. I’ve heard it all before, so what could I possibly take from it? Well, I learned a lot. In fact, I learned that much of what I thought I knew was wrong and those were reasons why I haven’t been successful with diets in the past. For example, I learned that creating a calorie deficit is the number one necessity for fat loss, but that crash dieting isn’t going to benefit me.
Eventually, The 3 Week Diet led me to learn about catecholamines (I had never even heard of these) and ways to increase those levels to help mobilize fat. Yes, there are some big words. No, they aren’t confusing to learn about. I was a straight C-student through high school and college and I understood all of this with no problem. Unlike with my review, you’re not going to be overwhelmed with large blocks of texts. Instead, you’re given short paragraphs, bullet points, and quick tips that pull all of the information together beautifully. For you visual learners, there are even some graphics thrown in there!
From here, I approached the topic of fasting. I was scared. I wanted to eat; I didn’t want to starve! However, The 3 Week Diet put my fears to rest and I soon understood why intermittent fasting is beneficial and how it can be done without any starvation on my end (which had me wiping the sweat off my brow). I was so intrigued by the idea that I actually took a few minutes to research it online. I had no idea how popular intermittent fasting is and how beneficial it is for your body, health, and even life longevity. If you’re curious about this topic, this is a section of the book you 100% cannot skip. I really enjoyed it, and surprisingly, it made me WANT TO FAST. At this point, this book was turning my dieting world upside down and I found myself skipping my favorite TV shows just to keep reading it (which is saying a lot for this TV fan).
The last few sections before I got to information on how to do The 3 Week Diet were also packed full of some great information. The topics included:
- Reducing Carbohydrates
- Starvation Mode
- Stubborn Fat
- Supplements to Boost Fat Loss
Although this was a lot of information, the paragraphs are short and seriously easy to read. If you are a serial dieter like me or you just want to understand the science of weight loss, I cannot recommend The 3 Week Diet enough. At this point, I feel like I sound like I’m selling it, but when I learn something beneficial, I want to share it. There’s nothing more important than knowledge, especially when it comes to our health. I mean, if we don’t have our health, what do we have? I wasted too many years abusing my body and this book made me want to change. More importantly, it gave me the tools to change.
Chapter #3. Starting The 3 Week Diet
Drum roll, please! The moment you’ve been waiting for…my experience on this The 3 Week Diet. If you want to know if I had success, I did. If you want to know if I had challenges, I definitely did. If you want to know if I’d recommend this, I have and do every chance I get. As I’ve said before, this is more than a diet but a new way of eating and thinking about weight loss. If you’re open-minded, willing to make permanent lifestyle changes, and really want to be healthy, it’s going to work for you like it did for me. But, if you don’t want to put the effort in, you’re probably going to be stuck on your couch eating your “last burrito” with no hope or change in sight.
This phase lasts for 7 days and aims to really clean up your diet…REALLY clean it up. If you’ve been eating a lot of junk food, it’s going to be tough. Even I, who started eating healthier as I learned more through The 3 Week Diet, had a tough time. Sugar is addicting and so is junk food. Those are cravings that are hard to break, so don’t expect this to be a walk in the park. However, once you pass the initial “withdrawal period”, you’re going to feel better. No, you’re going to feel amazing. For me, the feeling of being able to walk past the donut shop on my way to work without my stomach growling and feeling a cold sweat felt like my biggest victory since I graduated college. It’s hard but it is worth it.
One thing I had to do to begin was go to the grocery store. You’re going to need a lot of fresh veggies and a lot of lean proteins. My advice here is to buy more veggies than you think you’ll need, because when you’re hungry, you don’t want to deprive yourself of a snack just because you don’t have a lot of cauliflower or green beans stocked up. I followed the instructions on how much and what to eat each day and found it pretty straightforward. I tried different methods of preparing my veggies and soon found some favorites that made even broccoli taste good to me.
If you are like me and need to be told in detail how to diet throughout the day, you’re going to love The 3 Week Diet. In this phase, the instructions are crystal clear and SO EASY to follow. It even provides you with sample eating schedules and gives you tips just in case you can’t follow those precisely. Detail is important for me and having troubleshooting advice before those troubles come by way was even more important. The author was truly dedicated to making sure this book was as detailed as possible, which is something that can’t be said for other diet books.
All in all, here are my pros and cons from Phase 1:
- Learned new ways of preparing veggies
- Tried new types of protein
- Learned how to snack healthier
- Stopped craving junk food
- Had more energy
- Felt better in general
- Woke up feeling more energetic
- Saved money on dining out at lunch
- Lost 5 pounds!
- Had to get through cravings to break them
- Couldn’t eat all my beloved junk food
- Had to give up carbohydrates I loved
- Thought about junk food a lot
Fortunately, there were many more pros than cons, and those cons were only negatives because of my addiction to junk food and years of unhealthy eating. If I’ve learned anything, it’s that it’s not easy to break bad habits. Although I got through this phase alright, I was really excited for the second and eager to see what it had in store for me.
I was surprised that this phase lasts for a short 24 hours. When I read that it’s a fast, I was initially nervous, because I had never done something like this before. However, with all that I had learned about fasting from reading earlier, I was confident that I could do it with minimal trauma on my part. Not to mention that in the last phase, I was eating on a schedule that was conducive to fasting, so it wasn’t a stretch for me to go a little bit longer between meals.
Guess what? I got through it without really even noticing. I went to work, drank water, kept myself busy, and before I knew it, it was time to eat again. The meal you get after the 24 hours is completed is actually up to you, as long as it’s under a certain amount of carbs. Since I had been clean eating for a week at this point, I wasn’t about to binge. Instead, I made myself a low carb burrito with cauliflower rice, tofu, and guacamole. Oh, how far I’d come.
Here are my pros and cons from Phase 2:
- Not difficult
- Drinking more water
- It went by quickly
- Lost a couple of pounds
- Slight hunger pains initially
- Thought about food a lot the first few hours
- Not as much energy to work out
This phase is from days 9-11 and focuses on liver health and fat loss. Since I had already been eating so healthy, this was a very easy phase for me. Again, The 3 Week Diet laid everything out by day and sometimes even by time. It even gives calorie counts for both men and women, as the requirements for each are often different. While you won’t be eating a lot of calories in these few days, you won’t feel like you’re constantly hungry. That’s largely because you’ll be fasting for part of the day but also because the foods that you eat in this phase are to be high fat and low calorie, which are naturally filling.
One of my difficulties initially was not really knowing what to eat, as some foods weren’t quite as high in fat as they should be for this phase. Fortunately, The 3 Week Diet had me covered. It gave some great examples of foods that should be staples in this stage and even a delicious recipe! Seriously, what other book gives you all of this information? I never had to go online to figure out what to do, so I saved a lot of time and just went with it.
Here are my pros and cons from Phase 3:
- Discovered some new recipes
- Lost a lot of weight
- Didn’t feel hungry, at all
- Had a lot of energy
- Learned a lot about weight loss studies in the book
- Learned about different types of fats in the book
- Limited diet
- A lot of cooking/food prep
I’d like to take a moment and say that my weight loss throughout this time was impressive. However, I knew that a lot of it was likely water weight from eating fewer carbs. Still, I could see that I was a lot less bloated and I felt great as well. I know that I lost some fat during this time and could feel that in my midsection. My belt was almost to that lower notch and I was more motivated than ever to keep going.
This lasts from day 12 to day 21, making it the longest and LAST PHASE! Once I got to this point, all of the other phases made sense. Without what I learned in the last 11 days, I would have never been able to understand this part or really stick to it. The focus for this is on creating a calorie deficit, which is the key to long-term weight loss. However, cutting calories isn’t as easy as you might think because you first need to figure out your own BMR (wiki) (which is your resting metabolic rate). There’s a very easy to use math table (again, if I understood this, you will) that I used to plug in my weight, height, and age.
From there, I knew what my BMR was and was able to do a little bit more math to determine the number of calories I should be aiming for per day and even week. Although it might sound strange to figure out how many calories you can eat in a week, it actually helped me out quite a bit. By knowing this number, I was able to eat more calories on certain days and less on others, which gave me a lot more freedom. During this time I kept it low carb, although, on some days, I did eat a little bit more in the form of a whole wheat roll or low carb tortilla.
If you’re worried about the math part of The 3 Week Diet, don’t be. It’s not nearly as complicated as you might think. The math equations are laid out in the most simple terms possible. All you need is a calculator and a piece of paper to write your information down on (because otherwise, you might forget, just like me). I also HIGHLY recommend downloading a calorie counting app during this time. You can use it for everything you eat. Another thing I recommend is to invest in a kitchen scale. They are incredibly cheap and can also be used for mail, so it’s pretty much a win/win as far as household investments go.
Once I had my app downloaded, I was able to see the number of calories I was eating but that wasn’t it. It also showed me the carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and sugar I was consuming in a day! I only wish I had downloaded it earlier because it seriously simplified things. Not to mention, it keeps you accountable for those small snacks you eat, which really do add up over the course of the day. With this on my side, my discipline increased and soon I was eating cleaner than ever before because of my new healthy habits.
I never felt deprived and I actually looked forward to logging what I ate. It was fun to fit the foods I wanted into my daily calorie count and I got really creative with my meal ingredients. I learned how to make healthy versions of my favorite dishes and enjoyed those more than the originals! It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you have the tools necessary to do so.
Here are my pros and cons for Phase 4:
- Steady weight loss
- Learning new recipes, trying new foods
- Feeling steady energy
- No lack of energy mid-afternoon
- Less snacking
- Far more productivity
- Less daydreaming
- Better sleep
- Not actually feeling like I was on a diet
- Flexibility with calories I ate each day
- Began exercising more frequently
- Some days I felt really hungry, but since I had a certain amount of calories, I was able to satisfy that hunger
- Difficulty finding healthy options when dining out
Chapter #4. The Workout Part
Have you been wondering if I ever got up off the couch while I was on this diet? Yes, I went to work! All jokes aside, I also made more of an effort to exercise when my energy levels were up in the final phase. This first included taking some walks around the neighborhood, which eventually led to running. I used an app to help me pace myself and now I can run a 5k with no problem. Since I was feeling better about my fitness, I didn’t stop with running. I continued to work out with The 3 Week Workout while I was still on The 3 Week Diet.
What I really like about this workout is that it starts out with things I could actually do, even before I began working out on my own. From daily walks to help ramp up my metabolism to information on how to do different individual exercises and whole workouts, everything was laid out to be easy to understand. There were even visuals and step-by-step instruction for things like planks and upright rows. I didn’t particularly want to do some of them, but because I had come so far, I tried all of them. Surprisingly, they weren’t as difficult as I anticipated.
While there are workouts listed, I actually came up with one of my own based on the exercises that I enjoyed the most. I do these almost every morning, except on days when I just want to sleep in and relax. I feel great, I can see muscle building and I am able to eat more calories because I am burning a lot of calories while I’m working out! I even feel better after I workout and have more energy for the day, so it’s easy for me to get out of bed and ready for the day without being groggy.
If you want to begin working out, I can’t recommend this enough. It was really a great complement to the diet and helped me reach goals I didn’t even know I had.
Chapter #5. Final Thoughts on The 3 Week Diet
What can I say? I absolutely loved The 3 Week Diet. In fact, I’m still on it! However, I wouldn’t call it a “diet”. At this point, I’ve adopted the advice and worked it into my everyday life. I am proud to say that I’ve lost a lot of weight and have finally reached my goal. My priority now is not weight loss, it is to maintain my weight. Fortunately, with the tools I learned in The 3 Week Diet, I have been able to do this pretty easily. Never before would I have thought that I could actually accomplish the goal of a healthy body at a weight that isn’t classified as “obese” or even “overweight”. However, I have! And, if you want to see what you can do, I recommend you try this out, too.
One thing to keep in mind if you’re on the fence is that The 3 Week Diet isn’t another fad diet. If you choose to do it for three weeks, then it can be temporary, but it’s not a crash diet that’s thrown together in a basic book. The author deeply thought about everything and included facts and important information that you have to have if you want to lose weight and keep it off. If you’re used to crash dieting, I suggest at least reading this book to learn more about nutrition and your health. If you’re like me, you’re going to take away a lot of great information and gain new excitement for your weight loss journey.

Chapter #7: Final thoughts about the 3 Week Diet plan
The 3 Week Diet program is an innovative system, assuring rapid weight loss. Brian Flatt, who is the creator of the system, asserts that you will be capable of losing 12 to 23 pounds of fat within a short time of 21 days.
This three-week weight loss system is chiefly a mixture of diverse diets. The entire system comes with four different phases, among which the opening phase is the detox phase. It is following by the fasting phase and the last two phases include low carbohydrate, low-fat and protein-rich foods.
Even though some users feel the first phase somewhat difficult, it is a manageable phase. As the phases progress, you will feel less difficult to go through them. As the entire duration of the weight loss system is 21 days, you can complete the program successfully. This means that you will be capable of losing the greatest amount of unwanted fat and weight quickly and easily. The system allows you to shed the greatest amount of weight in a safe and natural way, as well.
The 3 Week Diet system starts with an effective weight loss with some simple-to-do workouts. The workout part of the program includes two different kinds of workouts. The mandatory workout during the program is to walk daily before taking your breakfast. The optional exercise part of the program is a classic dumbbell-derived workout program to maximize the burning of fat from the body. However, the creator of the system suggests users to do both exercises to achieve speedy weight loss.
Some users have mentioned that they were able to lose 23 pounds in 21 days. To achieve this, Brian stresses users to put more effort and suggests them to have a strong determination. The system will work because the majority of its diet phases stipulate low carbohydrate foods in order to achieve an effective weight loss.
To build self-confidence in users, the author quotes countless scientific studies, supporting his justification for every phase of the diet. He also explains the way he first tested the recommended foods on himself.
The 3 Week Diet system is best suitable for those who want to achieve healthy weight loss quickly with the required determination. Those people only can successfully get through the appetite pangs. It is not suitable for those having medical disorders, such as diabetes, blood pressure, etc. Vegetarians may feel the detox phase rather difficult unless they like to take eggs.
Above all, Brian Flatt offers his 3 Week Diet system with an attractive 100% satisfaction warranty. If you are not satisfied with the results of the system within 60 days, you can get your entire money back, with no questions asked. This makes you conclude that The 3 Week Diet program is a genuine system.
