3 Days of The Military Diet - My Experience

By Τετάρτη, Ιουλίου 25, 2018 , , , , , , , , , ,

I'm not aiming for weight loss. I just want to find ways to force myself eat, and for me personally, I feel in more control when I have a plan to follow. I'm not supporting eating disorders or fancy them, and this post is for informative reasons. I do not recommend to anyone to try this diet without a doctor consult.

Hello everyone!

So, since my ED is growing again, I try to find ways to eat. I've always been a fan of diets, I've tried almost everything since I was like 14 years old. 10 years of testing diets.
So, lately I have a really upset stomach, and I try to eat more (I eat less than 1000kcal every day, and it's not intensional - my stomach and bowel is in a terrible state because of stress) so I saw this diet online and many people tried it out successfully in Youtube, so I decided to give it a go!

So the military diet, according to it's official website that you can find HERE, it's a diet in which the food combinations are designed to burn fat, kick start your metabolism and lose weight fast without supplements or pills. The diet is a combination of low calorie, chemically compatible foods designed to work together and jump start weight loss.

So the diet is devided in two sections, when you are ON the military diet (3 days of the plan) and when you are OFF the military diet (4 days when you calorie restrict your intake in 1500kcal per day, while eating the recommended foods on the website). I decided to try out only the ON section.

Note: In case of intollerance/vegan ect, the website has a blog post about substitutes for every meal.

The foods of the Military Diet are:

So I weighted myself the morning before Day 1 breakfast and I was 52kg. (My height is 159cm in case you are wondering, I'm on normal BMI.). Also, I'm lactose intollerant.

And my DAY 1 meals were:

  • For breakfast I had a cup of black coffee, half a grapefruit, a slice of German type multi grain bread, and 2 tbsp of smooth peanut butter.
  • My lunch was a tuna fish (oven backed), half sliceof the same bread I had for breakfast, and a cup of green tea.
  • As for dinner, I had a cup of green beans, a small granny smith apple, half a banana, and a scoop of vegan ice cream. I didn't eat meat because I forgot to buy.


My DAY 2 meals:

  •  Breakfast, a boiled egg, a slice of multigran bread, half a banana, and a cup of black coffee (those things inside the cup are ice cubes, I wanted it to cool quicky because I was running late for work)
  •  Lunch, 5 saltine crackers (with lentil flour, gluten free), a hard boiled egg, and a glass of almond milk.
  •  And dinner, 2 hot dogs (gluten free), a cup of broccoli, half cup of raw carrots, half banana, and 1 scoop of vegan ice cream.


Last but not least, my DAY 3 meals:

  •  For breakfast, a cup of black coffee, a cup of almond milk, 5 lentil flour/gluten free saltine crackers and a small granny smith apple.
  •  Lunch, I had a no oil pan fried egg on a slice of multi grain bread
  •  And for dinner I has a cup of tuna canned in brine, with 1 scoop of vegan ice cream and half banana (added some cinnamon for taste)


So, that was it! 
Thefollowing morning after DAY 3, I weighted in. I was 50.5kg, so I lost 1.5kg in two days.
Also, I wasn't hungry at all, since I'm used in eating less than 1000kcal each day, so this diet was making me full every day. Dinner was actually too much for me each day, especially on Day 3, plain tuna without olive oil or lettuce is just so boring as food. Also I drank about 2 lt or more every single day, and I had no exercise because of my busy schedule.
In addition, after 2 days I gained back weight and now I'm 51,7kg. No regrets though, I ate well and I had no nausea.

Have you ever heard or tried the Military Diet? What do you thing of this diet plan? I'd love to hear your comments! 

Until next time,
xoxo Foteini
