postheadericon Military Diet For Beginners

If you are short on time but need to lose weight, the military diet is one of the most effective diets around. This is not like other crash diets that make you feel weak or disoriented, but helps your body get the nutrients it needs from wholesome foods. Many people have even reported losing up to 10 pounds within the week. With the military diet, you still get all the energy and nutrients that you need, and best of all, it only lasts for a few days of the week so you can go about your regular routine after the first three days.

More than restricting the calories, the diet aims to substitute unhealthy food with more nutritious and filling food. Follow the diet completely so that you can achieve the best results after a week. The diet plan is strict on what food you can eat but offers substitutes especially for those who do not consume tuna or are vegans. If there are any food that you are not allowed to eat and you find that it is on the list, then the alternatives can help you fulfill the diet plan instead.

Day One:

Breakfast – a single slice of toast, around two tablespoons of peanut butter or other protein-packed food, one cup of coffee or tea

Lunch – a half cup of tuna, one slice of toast, one cup of coffee or tea

Dinner – three ounces of any meat, one cup green beans, half of a banana, one apple, and something sweet for dessert.

Day Two:

Breakfast – one egg prepared any way you want, one slice of toast or other bread product, half of a banana

Lunch – a cup of cottage cheese, one hard-boiled egg, and a few saltine crackers or slice of toast.

Dinner – two sausages (without the bun), one cup broccoli, a half cup of carrot juice, one cup vanilla ice cream

Day Three:

Breakfast – a small portion of bread, whether it’s crackers or small slice of toast, a slice of cheddar cheese, and a small apple

Lunch – one egg prepared any way you want and a slice of toast

Dinner – a cup of tuna, half of a banana, one cup vanilla ice cream

These three days will not be easy for everybody, but you will see improvements in your metabolism and weight in no time at all. The military diet can also help you in achieving your goal weight as you become more conscious of your food choices afterward. You will only be consuming around 1100 calories to 1300 calories for the first three days, which contributes to your weight loss during the diet plan. Follow the plan strictly and you’ll be amazed at what it can do for your body, helping you feel more confident and energized.

The next four days of the week you are allowed to eat anything as long as it falls under the qualifications of a healthy diet: nutritional, wholesome, and no artificial fats or sugars.

For those who do not eat canned tuna, fresh tuna can be substituted either broiled or served fresh. Cottage cheese in the same amount can also be substituted for tuna.

For vegans who are interested in trying this diet, lentils, tofu, and almonds can be used to substitute the meat products suggested. As long as you are consuming the same amount, then you will not have any problems with this diet. Beans and nuts even have fewer calories than meat, which means you can lose more than the expected weight.

You can return to eating normally in the next four days following the three-day military diet, but watch out that you do not binge eat. Drink plenty of water, so you are dehydrated all throughout the week and always listen to your body.

If you have supplemental needs, then make sure that you ask your doctor first before trying anything. This diet is healthy in general and only aims to restrict calories, but people have different dietary needs. Make sure you are not putting your health at risk by trying this diet.
