The military diet, also called the 3-day diet, is a short-term, rapid weight loss diet that claims to help you lose up to 10 pounds (4.5 kg) in a week.
Military Diet Meal Plan
The 3-day meal plan on the military diet consists of a limited selection of foods — 16 total, to be precise — that is meant to be divided between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Examples of breakfast foods include:– toast or saltine crackers– peanut butter– grapefruit, apples, or bananas– hard-boiled eggs or cheddar cheese
Examples of lunch options include:– toast or saltine crackers– canned tuna, hard-boiled eggs, or cottage cheese
Examples of dinner options include:– any type of meat, hot dogs without a bun, or canned tuna– green beans, carrots, or broccoli– apples or bananas– vanilla-flavored ice cream
The first 3 days of the diet have a set menu, while the other 4 days are less restrictive. You’re still encouraged to eat healthy or follow the diet’s suggested low calorie menu for the remaining 4 days.
