Military Diet, is it hard?
I tried the Military diet the whole month of May 2015. I started in end April right after my vacation to Japan. In short, i lost 10 pounds/4.5 kg in one month. In long, kindly scroll to get through my journey.
I still think that this is the fastest and somehow easiest way to lose weight. The happy news is we still can eat meat and ice cream for the diet. It's a YAY. Besides, military diet is much cheaper than the detox diet or juice cleansing diet. The overall cost to buy the whole ingredients for three days is usually only 1/10 the three days juice cleansing package. Trust me, I know this. juice cleansing diet usually cost around 1.8 million IDR (139 USD) and sometimes even more expensive.
I do go to the gym, join aerobic and different yoga classes in between my diet. While the result for each person different, if you have an urgency to lose weight fast, you probably want to try this diet. In my case, I need to fit in the dress for my brother's wedding, so I definitely NEED to lose fast. So far, I have made 9 of my friends join me in this military diet by sharing the recipes and motivate each other. It is easier when done together with friends.
What makes it hard?
After experiencing several times military diet and encourage my friends to join, I can tell you what could make the military diet hard. It's psychologies issue like:
1. You don't have the urgency to lose weight fast
2. You're not motivated
3. You're so busy working or studying or anything that needs much energy
4. You don't think that you can actually lost weight in three days.
What makes it a go?
Frequently asked questions in my soc-med:
1. Q: You lose 10 pounds in just three days?
A: Of course NO. During three days of military diet, you probably just lose 1 kg to 2 kg (best case). I lost almost 2 kg or 0.9 pounds in three days because I followed all the rules and I did light exercising. In one month, i lost 10 pounds or equals to 4.5 kg.
2. Q: Can the menus be substitute?
A: Yes there are substitution for several menus. Please refer to this link for substitution.
3. Q: Is it hungry, during three days of military diet?
A: Honestly YES. Quoting from the military diet website, "Hunger is just a feeling we’ve all grown too accustomed to satisfying"
4. Q: After three days of the military diet, what do we eat?
A: In my case, I eat healthy foods and not more than 1500 calories a day. If possible, don't eat oily or fried foods, frozen foods, rice, white bread. I usually eat two kinds of cooked vegetables and my weight remains okay until the end of the day. As stated in the website, here are the foods you can eat while off the military diet.
5. Q: After three days of military diet, will my weight bounce up?
A: I know that this is what some people think: When we lose weight fast, our weight will bounce back fast as well if we eat just a little bit more. My opinion is, as long as you keep eating clean and healthy, drink a lot of waters, exercise and sweating, you are positive to keep the new weight with you. Don't listen to discouragement that people give you, just trust yourself that if you want to lose weight, you will lose weight.
