The Military Diet
Yesterday my friend and I were hanging out when she began telling me about this diet she was going to try out. I immediately thought to myself, “Oh great, another diet where you can only eat carrots for 5 days.” But when she began reading off the meal plan for The Military Diet, I was shocked that the list actually included real food and meals. I mean, you actually get to eat ice cream on this diet. I was highly intrigued and after doing some research about the diet, I’m going to try it too!
The diet is only a 3 day plan, but should be followed for several weeks. Although this diet allows for 4 days off, The Military Diet’s website recommends that participants follow a 1,500 calorie meal plan the other days of the week. The diet claims that participants will loose 10 pounds a week, something I don’t necessarily agree with, and that the diet’s foods are chemically compatible for quick weight loss. You can learn more about the diet here.
