In efforts to lose a few pounds, I’ve decided to take on The Military Diet! As everyone knows, I am a cheerleader and gaining just a pound is unacceptable. I’ve gained 5 pounds since last year!
The Military Diet claims that you can lose up to 10 pounds in just 3 days without exercise if you follow their strict diet plan. So far, so good. I can definitely feel my fat eating itself.
For the next few days I will be posting my meals, workouts (voluntary), progress, and results. At the end of my diet, I will be posting a video to my YouTube channel. Below you will find what I had for each meal, at the end a picture, and my workouts.
So, breakfast was super fulfilling due to the massive grapefruit! As you may notice, I actually prepared my breakfast wrong from misreading. Day 1, I was supposed to have toast with peanut butter and not an egg! To drink, I had Mango Green Tea which was actually really disgusting. I think I’m going to stick to water for the rest of this Military Diet. I did notice that my food broke down a lot faster and I was starving within the next 3 hours.
For Lunch I had 6 rice cakes and half a cup of tuna. This definitely was NOT my favorite meal, but when you’re starving, you will eat anything! The diet plan calls for a slice of toast but you can substitute rice cakes instead. You can also find all substitutions listed on their website.
For Dinner I had 2 fried eggs, (which was equivalent to the 3 ounces the diet plan called for), 1 cup of green beans, and a small green apple. I had been anticipating this meal all day but it wasn’t as satisfying as I thought it would be. I did get full off of this meal but it didn’t serve my taste buds any justice. Bleh!
As you can guess, this was my favorite meal of the day! One cup of Vanilla Blue Bell ice cream. Yum! The diet plan calls for half a banana to go with the ice cream, but the bananas I bought weren’t any good, so I skipped the banana!
This is where I am at the beginning of the diet. I want to lose all the fat around my stomach and tone my legs. Later that night I worked out:
1 set =
- 25 push-ups
- 25 tuck ups
- 25 lunge jumps
I did two sets of these after running a stadium of bleachers. After that, I did duck walks back and forth on a basketball court twice.
Overall this diet is pretty easy and simple but it takes a lot of discipline to stay on the right track and eat what you are supposed to. I don’t expect to lose 10 pounds, but I am hoping to get a little bit more tone and definition. This diet is more about my health and body composition than it is about a number on the scale. Stay tuned for the next few days! 🙂
