The Truth About The Military Diet: Lose 10 Pound In Just 3 Days


Are you thinking about trying the Military Diet? Maybe you’ve heard the quick weight loss promises and seen the popularity of the diet on Facebook and Pinterest. But is it really possible to lose up to 10 pounds per week or 30 pounds per month? You bet it is. Let’s do a quick review of the Military Diet.

People are skeptical about diets that promise rapid weight loss because they sound too good to be true. There’s no magic fairy dust behind the Military Diet, just stick with it and see for yourself.

The truth about the Military Diet

Weight loss on the Military Diet is not just water weight.

Dieting makes you lose fat, not water. When you kick start weight loss on the Military Diet, sometimes people claim it’s just water weight you lose. This is one of the biggest weight loss myths on the internet. So how did the myth originate? If your current diet is really unhealthy and you eat tons of salt and drink soda, you retain water naturally. When you start eating a healthier diet and drinking actual water, you flush some of that excess water out of your system. So naturally a change of diet can cause you to lose some water, but calorie deficit dieting makes you lose fat, not water.

3 Day Diet Menu Plan


Water is the best thing you can drink on the Military Diet. So drink as much as you can! Artificial sweeteners aren’t good for you or your blood sugar, so try to avoid them. Read more about artificial sweeteners. You can also drink as much caffeine free herbal tea as you want, but only use Stevia as a sweetener.

For coffee addicts: We really love (need) coffee too, so we understand why everyone has questions about coffee on the Military Diet! Caffeine withdrawal is no fun, especially when you’re already on a low calorie diet. So here are some good news… Black coffee has less than 5 calories per cup, so if you need to sneak in a cup here and there, just cut out the equivalent calories elsewhere. Do not add cream and sugar. You can add Stevia if you like.
