Have you heard of this yet? The Military Diet has been all over facebook. It claims that you can lose 10lbs in 3 days. I know what you are thinking…..there is no way. Well I figured it is only 3 days, what do I have to lose…well besides some weight.
Let me start by telling you what this diet is all about. It states it is a great thing to do if you have something coming up that you need to lose some weight quickly, like a wedding, vacation in Cancun, or a class reunion. It also claims that you will not just be losing water but actual fat. If you want to lose more than 10lbs it also states you should do 3 days on this diet and 4 days off. It does say during the 4 days off you should be eating right, just not as stringent as the Military Diet.
What I liked the most about this diet is the food is mostly stuff I already have in my house. It wasn’t crazy food that I would never eat unless I was on a diet. Ok, so here it is:
Day one’s calorie count is 1400. I felt good on day one. I was excited to get this started and see if it would work. I felt comfortable. Not hungry, not full. I could do day one over and over. I lost 3.5 lbs on that first day.
Day two’s calorie count is 1200. I did great this day as well. Unfortunetly I did this on a friday which is also supposed to be date night for my fiance and I so we didn’t get to go out to eat like we usually do. But it is only 3 days right?! I was snacky at night and it took alot of will power not to grab something to chomp on, but I did it. I am now down 6.5 lbs. I have to say that I am diabetic and during the night my sugar dropped and I did feel shakey.
I am working on day 3 right now. Today’s calorie count is only 1100. I did add a cup of coffee this morning with some sugar. I’m hoping the sugar in the coffee keeps me from being shakey today. If I can’t make it, I will stick to it as closely as possible but might need to add something with sugar. I am about to eat my lunch. I will write about my results after I finish this third day. The fact that I have already lost 6.5 lbs is amazing and I think that does show that this diet really does work. I am planning on going grocery shopping today and plan on still buying healthy foods. More friuts and veggies and I did enjoy the cottage cheese.
If you try this diet or have tried it in the past I would love to hear your results. Of course, before starting any diet please consult your physician.
