Military Diet Essay

The "3-day Diet" or the "Military Diet," is a short term plan in which many people have found great success. A military gentleman who attended our church some years back introduced this diet to some in the church. It was my understanding that military people use this diet when they need to get in shape quickly. Yes, I tried the diet myself, and the first time I only was able to go for two days because of hypoglycemic symptoms (Or so I thought). I lost 5 pounds in two days. Two of my friends went on it and both of them reported an 8 pound loss in 3 days. Then, after some time had passed, I began to realize that the weakness and shakiness may have just been from sugar and/or caffeine withdrawal. So, I'm currently doing it again but do not plan to post any more results until I have reached my goal (or at least near it). At that point, I will probably just write up my results in the form of my own personal success story! The Actual Diet Plan I have posted this diet for informational purposes only! I am not responsible for anything! Please check with your doctor before starting this diet. 3 Day Diet DAY 1: Breakfast--1/2 Grapefruit, 1 Slice of Toast, 2 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter, and Coffee or Tea Lunch--1/2 Cup of Tuna, 1 Slice of Toast, and Coffee or Tea (any brew, as long as it's caffeinated) Dinner--3 ounces of any type of meat, 1 Cup of Green Beans, 1/2 Banana, 1 Small Apple, and 1 Cup of Vanilla Ice Cream (YUM)!!! Tips to Try: * Warm the apple and/or banana and eat them over the ice cream. Delicious! * Cook the green beans with the meat or simmer them in the broth. Mmmm :) DAY 2: Breakfast--1 egg, 1 Slice of Toast, and 1/2 Banana Lunch--1 Cup of Cottage Cheese (Or 1 Slice of Cheddar Cheese), 1 Hard Boiled Egg, and 5 Saltine Crackers Dinner--2 Hot Dogs, (no buns), 1 Cup of Broccoli, 1/2 Cup of Carrots, 1/2 Banana, and 1/2 Cup of Vanilla Ice
