Losing weight is no picnic. It’s no easy task and it takes a heck of a lot longer to lose than it does gain. Yet, we have these unrealistic expectations of what to achieve. We look online for solutions that are quick and easy. How we can eat junk food and still get slim. Or diet for 10 days and somehow lose years worth of bad eating and living an unhealthy lifestyle. That’s just not going to cut it. Bootcamp fitness instructor Jillian Rowens says that before she starts her gruelling workouts with the women at her camp, they all start a fast diet known as the military diet.
This diet is extremely restrictive in calories so they do this during their camp prep time as they don’t have the energy needed to perform the tough workouts. While they are in the training, they learn about diet and nutrition while doing the 3 day diet. Over the course of the three days, the diet is simple – grapefruit, hot dogs, bananas, even ice cream. This may sound like a dream, but the quantities are very small and the focus is on lean protein and low carbohydrates. This 3 day military diet review suggests that you only do this diet if you have less than 20 pounds to lose. A much heavier set person will need far more calories to lose weight at a healthy level. While doing this diet, you’ll feel quite weak so it is important to drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated and feeling healthy.
If you are very hungry and really need something to eat, try to eat a few cups of raw vegetables like celery sticks or carrots which are low in calories. If this doesn’t do the trick, have something low fat, sugar-free and with a good deal of protein like low-fat cottage cheese or plain yogurt. Avoid sweeteners during the military diet as they will just cause you to crave more and more sugar.
You can enjoy unlimited amounts of herbal tea. Preferable drink green teas and without any added sugar, milk or sweetener to get the maximum health and nutritional benefits of the tea leaves. Drinking loose leaf tea by following the directions will help boost your metabolism even more and help burn more fat while you are on this diet.Read More →
