The Military Diet, lose ten pounds in three days. Day number one breakfast. Breakfast is one of the most important meals on this diet because it will give you the energy that you need to get started in the morning. It will also kick start your metabolism. On the first day, you should eat a piece of whole wheat or multigrain toast with two tablespoons of peanut butter. If you’re allergic to peanuts, you can substitute that with soy butter, pumpkin butter, sunflower seed butter or bean dip. Along with your toast, eat half of a grapefruit and drink a cup of black coffee or caffeinated tea. Unfortunately you can’t add any sugar, sweetener or cream to your tea or coffee. While you can drink water, instead of drinking coffee or tea, it’s not as beneficial. Green tea has properties that can help you burn calories and black coffee can suppress your appetite.
Day number one, lunch. Lunch on the first day consists of another slice of wheat or multigrain toast, this time with no peanut butter. On your lunch plate, you should also add 1/2 cup of tuna without any mayonnaise. For your beverage, you can have a glass of water, green tea or black coffee. If you need to season your food, you should stick with pepper, garlic salt, honey mustard or any other low-calorie or no calorie seasoning.
Day number one, dinner. Dinner is the meal that most people on this diet look forward to the most. You can have three ounces of any type of meat that you like. Add to your plate a cup of green beans, half a banana, a small apple and you can even have one cup of ice cream for dessert. This might seem like a big deal for some, however it’s very low in calories. Consuming fewer calories is what will help you to lose the weight.
Here we are day number two. Breakfast on day two is better than breakfast on day one. Like day one, you should start with a slice of whole grain or multigrain toast. You can also have one whole egg. You can eat it hard-boiled or scrambled. If you’re going to scramble your eggs, you can’t use milk. You can also fry your egg, however you can’t use any type of oil. On your breakfast plate, you can also add half a banana.
At lunchtime on day two, you should have one cup of cottage cheese. If you don’t like cottage cheese, you can replace that with a slice of cheddar cheese. On the plate, you should also include a hard-boiled egg and five saltine crackers.
Day number two, dinner. Well this is another day where you’re going to look forward to dinner all day long. On your dinner plate, start with two hotdogs without the bun. You can also add a half cup of carrots, a cup of broccoli and half a banana. Your vegetables should be boiled, steamed or eaten raw. Your meat should be baked or grilled. You can even have a half cup of vanilla ice cream for dessert. If you’re getting tired of vanilla ice cream, you can substitute it for a half cup of apple juice or a cup of vanilla or strawberry flavored almond milk.
Day number three, breakfast. Finally day three. It’s your last day. Your breakfast plate should include five saltine crackers, one slice of cheddar cheese and one small apple. If you’re tired of saltine crackers, you can replace them with a rice cake, for each saltine cracker. If you’re not a big fan of cheese, you can replace that with a piece of ham, an egg, cabbage or soy cheese. Also be sure to drink your green tea your black coffee.
At lunch on this third day, it’s going to be quite small. On your plate you should have a piece of whole wheat or multigrain toast and one hard-boiled egg. If you’re getting bored with the eggs, you can replace that with either a cup of milk, two pieces of bacon or a chicken wing. The reason you’re consuming less food is that you need to gradually reduce the number of calories that you consume, so that you can lose more weight.
And finally dinner on the third day. It’s your last meal on this diet. On your plate, you should have one cup of tuna, a half a banana and a cup of vanilla ice cream. Sorry, this time no substitutions available.
