Lose Up to Ten Pounds in Three Days

The Original Three-Day Diet Plan

I first developed the Military Diet diet in 2007, countless people
around the world have used it successfully to lose weight. Although
there are copycats, this is the original, which is important because
even a small change to this diet can set you up for poor results.

Doctor Approval for Dieting

starting this or any diet, check with your doctor. Read on for facts
and information, but whether this diet is right for you is up to you and
your physician.

What to Expect

  • Follow
    the diet exactly! I cannot stress this enough. The foods on the menu
    work together to boost metabolism, provide energy, help with sugar
    swings, and jump-start the fat-burning process. The diet must be
    followed for three consecutive days.
  • Weigh yourself on the morning of the first day, but not again until
    the morning of the fourth day. Take your measurements too. If you gain
    muscle, you may not weigh less but you may lose inches. Weight can also
    fluctuate unpredictably (and make you discouraged). This is important so
    that you stay focused and positive.
  • In three days you should lose up to 10 pounds. Some people report
    losing more than that, others less. Every metabolism is different!
  • After three days, eat as you normally do, but don’t over-do it!
  • If you want to repeat the Military Diet, eat normally for at least
    four days before doing the three-day diet again. You could lose up to 40
    pounds in a month if you follow these guidelines precisely.
  • No snacking between meals! Eat all foods listed for a meal at
    mealtime. Don’t save anything for snacks. You’re trying to re-wire your
