Even though the 3 day tuna diet is increasing in popularity, Very so often because of the short duration of the 3 day tuna diet, it tends to mislead people into thinking there are no health risks involved. Whereas this is not the case because with such a low calorie diet, it can often cause havoc on your metabolism in the body in a negative manner. What this means is that an individual coming off or just finishing a 3 day tuna diet, could be setting themselves up for an even bigger weight gain due to the havoc cause on the metabolism rate of the body and this in turn could lead you to put on more weight than the weight you got rid off with the 3 day tuna diet.
