Military Diet

I took the plunge and tried the Military Diet. If you follow me on Instagram you have been seeing me post pictures of each meal from this diet. I did not complete it...BUT only because when I started it I forgot Timmy and I had made dinner plans on Day Three. I will definitely be doing it again...I want to try and do it next week because I leave on my cruise the following week, but with Memorial Day weekend and my busy week next week I am not sure if I will be able to. But if not I am will start it once I am back from my cruise!

I had always heard about the Military Diet and was very intimidated by it whenever I looked at how little was on my list of food to eat each day, but the foods work together and keep you somewhat full. Yes, I was hungry a lot but this was also the first time in a long time I had really portioned my meals out like this and had this few calories in a day. They say you aren't supposed to get on the scale until the morning of the 4th day...but I got on the scale everyday. I know weight fluctuates daily but here is what I saw on the scale

Day 2 night = -1.5 pounds
Day 3 morning = -2 pounds
Day 4 morning = -1.5 pounds



Orange, Toast with PB and water.
(They say not to substitute an orange for grapefruit, you should sub water and baking soda...but there was no way that was happening.


Chicken (substitute for tuna), toast and water.


Steak, green beans & 1 cup of vanilla ice cream
(I left my bananas & apples at work)

Below is my calorie intake from my logged food from Day One in my FitBit



1 scrambled egg, toast & 1/2 banana


Cottage Cheese, toast & scrambled egg
(This was my first time ever eating cottage cheese, it wasn't too bad)


2 hotdogs, 1/2 banana. 3 slices of cheese and 1 cup of vanilla ice cream
(I don't eat broccoli and I didn't have any carrots)



1 apple, slice of cheese and toast
(Substituted toast for saltine crackers)


1 scrambled egg and toast

#dinner #WHOOPS - I didn't end up taking a picture but Timmy and I had plans to eat dinner with another couple so I cheated and didn't finish my diet. But let me tell you what that Mexican food was delicious!

Overall, I really enjoyed the Military diet! I knew I wasn't going to lose 10 pounds in 3 days because that is crazy. But if I can lose about 1.5-2 pounds each time I do it and not gain weight between that would be great! Like I said I want to do it again next week but I just don't think it will work out so I will have to wait until after I get back from my cruise!

Have any of you all done the military diet? If so, what did you think?
