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

- DAY ONE -

#breakfast

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.

#lunch

Chicken (substitute for tuna), toast and water.

#dinner

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




- DAY TWO -

#breakfast

1 scrambled egg, toast & 1/2 banana

#lunch

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

#dinner

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)




- DAY THREE-

#breakfast

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

#lunch

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?
