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.
