The Military Diet

So after trying to lose weight and it not being as successful as I have hoped, I started looking all over the internet for other ways that people are losing weight. I came across The Military Diet and realized that I had found something that might actually work for me. I have seen a lot of blogs talk about it and then I thought…

 

“What if they are lying for blog views or blog attention?”

 

So, I thought that the logical thing was to look at YouTube videos. LOL does that even make sense? They could alter anything they want on camera footage that they have edited and uploaded and they could make 3 days out of 2 weeks or a month. I found a woman who actually showed the dates as she went along. Needles to say since I mentioned already, this could have been edited in, but I decided to give her testimony a run for its money and try it myself. I think I was most inclined to believe her because she admittedly spoke about cheating and eating some popcorn and some snacks with her son that she should not have and that should have explained why she didn’t lose the 10 pounds. She was only like a pound or 2 off. I decided that if the military diet made you lose 8 pounds, 9, or 10 then that was good enough. Here are the parameters of the diet:

 

♥DAY ONE♥

Breakfast:

A slice of toast with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter.

Half a grapefruit.

A cup of coffee or tea (optional).

Lunch:

A slice of toast.

Half a cup of tuna.

A cup of coffee or tea (optional).

Dinner:

A 3-oz (85 grams) serving of meat with a cup of green beans.

A small apple.

Half a banana.

One cup vanilla ice cream.

 

♥DAY TWO♥

Breakfast:

A slice of toast.

One hard-boiled egg.

Half a banana.

A cup of coffee or tea (optional).

Lunch:

One hard-boiled egg.

A cup of cottage cheese.

5 saltine crackers.

A cup of coffee or tea (optional).

Dinner:

Two hot dogs, with no bun.

Half a cup of carrots and half a cup of broccoli.

Half a banana.

Half a cup of vanilla ice cream.

 

♥DAY THREE♥

Breakfast:

A 1-ounce slice of cheddar cheese.

5 saltine crackers.

A small apple.

A cup of coffee or tea (optional).

Lunch:

A slice of toast.

One egg, cooked however you like.

A cup of coffee or tea (optional).

Dinner:

A cup of tuna.

Half a banana.

1 cup of vanilla ice cream.

Feel free to drink as much coffee or tea as you want, as long as you don’t add any calories from sugar or cream. Drink plenty of water too.

 

Above, I took a few photos of how I prepared my green beans*, eggs, and broccoli** at the start. I went ahead the night that I decided to begin and cooked off and prepared everything. The next morning as well as the next two days I was able to go about it without being stressed out. It was perfect. I did cheat because I added some spices and seasonings to the broccoli and green beans but other than that, I went “by the book”.

 

*For my green beans: I took some fresh green beans from my local farmers market and sautéed them in the pan with chopped onions, minced garlic, smart balance butter, and a little sprinkle of season salt and adobo.

**For my broccoli: I can admit I was into the minced garlic thing! I took my fresh broccoli from the farmers market, minced garlic, a little bit of smart balance butter, grated parmesan cheese, and a little sprinkle of season salt and adobo.
