The Military Diet also known as The 3 Day Military Diet is a three day on, four day off, weight loss diet. Lose ten pounds in three days is its claim to fame. 

What is the Military Diet?

It is a fast weight loss diet that is designed to help you lose as much as ten pounds in your first week. You follow the diet for three days. For the next four days, you maintain a 1500 calorie per day eating regimen. 

The Military Diet has nothing to do with any branch of the military. It is, however, a no nonsense military approach to lose weight.

It does allow you to drink coffee (black). It does allow you to eat ice cream! YES! Eating ice cream and losing ten pounds can create a lot of interest and appeal, thus the Military Diet is presently one of the most popular diets on the Internet.

Does it work?

Yes. Any diet that lowers your caloric intake should help you to lose weight. Creating a caloric deficit means weight loss, and with this diet you should lose weight and lose it fast.

Short term diets are not really good for you. Exercise is not included in this diet and exercise is crucial for long life and long term weight loss. 

I cannot recommend this diet. You are subjecting your body to a Yo Yo Effect that means gaining all your lost weight back and perhaps more. Even worse is that you are mentally associating diet with 'short term' which is a huge mistake. 

If you feel that you MUST utilize a diet of this type, be sure to contact your health professional first. The advantage that the Military diet has over other fast weight loss diets is that it is all laid out for you and with no special foods.

Never the less, this is a short term diet which is a bad weight loss choice, so I give the Military Diet two thumbs down.

Thank you for reading, my friend, I wish you much success n your weight loss journey.

   Military Diet/ 3 Day Military Diet

Fast weight loss certainly has its appeal, thus the popularity of the Military Diet.  Any diet that lets us eat ice cream has my attention and probably yours, as well. 

You should lose weight, you should lose weight fast, and you may lose as much as ten pounds in your first week. 

Your 'impulse' may be to try this diet.  At least for a short while. 

Two common mistakes that most people make when dieting are:
  1. Making their decision based on impulse.
  2. Thinking short term.
If you are guilty of the above, most of us are. 
Unfortunately, choosing the wrong diet and thinking short term is bad for you.  Not just with your present diet choice, but also it  can hurt with your future choices.

Most diet plans do not want you to take the time to make a well thought out decision.  They want you to make an impulse choice, choose their plan or program, and look no more. 

You may feel that you do not want to spend a lots of time 'looking', after all, you are busy. 

Choosing the right diet is essential for your long term weight loss success.  It will be one of the most important decisions and choices of your life.
