The 3-day military diet is one of the most effective diets for losing weight in a short time. You should eat only what is on the list. Nothing more and nothing less.
This diet has been tried by many people who have lost 10 pounds and get in shape quickly in 3 days. However, the military diet is beneficial to health and may be repeated after a 4-day break. In fact, exercise is optional, but I’m sure it doesn’t hurt.
The 3-Day Military Diet Menu Plan:
- Breakfast: 1/2 grapefruit, 1 slice toast, 2 tbs. peanut butter, 1 cup coffee or Tea (I prefer to use Detox Tea).
- Lunch: 1/2 cup tuna, 1 slice toast, 1 cups Coffee or Tea.
- Dinner: 2 slices any type of meat about 3 ounce, 1 cup green beans, 1/2 banana, small apple, 1 cup vanilla ice cream.
- Breakfast: 1 egg, 1 slice toast, 1/2 banana.
- Lunch: 1 cup cottage cheese or slice cheddar cheese, 1 hard boiled egg, 5 saltine crackers.
- Dinner: 2 hot dogs, 1 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup carrots, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream.
- Breakfast: 5 soda crackers, 1 slice cheddar cheese, 1 small apple.
- Lunch: 1 hard boiled egg, 1 slice toast.
- Dinner: 1 cup tuna, 1/2 banana, 1 cup vanilla ice cream.
After 3 days of the diet, you should lose up to 10 pounds (I lost 9 pounds). I am very happy with the results. It gave me hope that there is something that will work for me
Water is the only drink allowed in this diet (other drinks such as coffee or tea will probably be accepted during the day). In fact, it is very healthy and eliminates the toxin from the body.
