Military Diet – Lose Up to Ten Pounds in 3 Days

What to Expect

  • Follow the diet exactly! I cannot stress this enough. The foods on the menu work together to boost metabolism, provide energy, help with sugar swings, and jump-start the fat-burning process. The diet must be followed for three consecutive days.
  • Weigh yourself on the morning of the first day, but not again until the morning of the fourth day. Take your measurements too. If you gain muscle, you may not weigh less but you may lose inches. Weight can also fluctuate unpredictably (and make you discouraged). This is important so that you stay focused and positive.
  • In three days you should lose up to 10 pounds. Some people report losing more than that, others less. Every metabolism is different!
  • After three days, eat as you normally do, but don’t over-do it!
  • If you want to repeat the Military Diet, eat normally for at least four days before doing the three-day diet again. You could lose up to 40 pounds in a month if you follow these guidelines precisely.
  • No snacking between meals! Eat all foods listed for a meal at mealtime. Don’t save anything for snacks. You’re trying to re-wire your metabolism!
