Military Diet: Lose Up To Ten Pounds In Three Days

Military Diet: Lose Up To Ten Pounds In Three Days

The Original Three Day Diet Plan

Since I first published 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.

How did I come up with all of this?

A military gentleman who attended our church some years back introduced me to this diet. He said that military recruits use this diet when they need to get in shape quickly. Since then I’ve done extensive research and heard from countless people who have tried this plan. Combined with my own personal trial and error, the diet that follows is carefully tested and includes advice to help you succeed. Feel confident and see the results for yourself!

Here's what I'll be covering:

How the Military Diet Works

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. In three days you should lose up to 10 pounds. 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!

Approved Beverages

Caffeinated coffee or black tea for the first two meals of day one only. No added sugar or milk.
Water only from then on. Here is what to aim for: Take half of your weight in pounds and drink at least that many ounces of water. For example, if you weigh 160 pounds, drink at least 80 ounces of water per day (more if you exercise vigorously).

Important Information About Food Substitutions

Important Information About Food Substitutions
Five ounces of a meal replacement shake or two ounces of low-fat yogurt with 1/2 teaspoon flax seed can be substituted for a slice of toast.
The foods recommended for this diet work together to boost metabolism, so it is not recommended that you substitute any foods. The results are not guaranteed and the diet may not work if not followed precisely.

If you must find an alternative to a food on the diet for a health or medical reason, here are the best choices with the same nutritional value.

Toast Substitution Choices


  • 1 ounce (1/8 cup) sunflower kernels (sunflower seeds are gluten-free. If you are avoiding gluten, don’t choose the Planters brand which has traces of gluten.)
  • 1/2 of a high protein nutrition bar
  • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) low-fat yogurt with 1/2 teaspoon flax seed
  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened whole grain cereal (such as Kashi Go Lean)
  • 5 ounces of a meal replacement shake

Grapefruit Substitute

1/2 teaspoon baking soda in a glass of water can be substituted for grapefruit. Allow the mixture to sit for at least 30 minutes before drinking. Eat another piece of fruit in place of the grapefruit with your meal.

Banana Substitute Choices


  • 2 kiwi (1/2 banana = 1 kiwi)
  • 1 cup papaya
  • 2 apricots

Peanut Butter Substitute Choices

  • soy butter
  • sunflower seed butter
  • same measurement of sunflower kernels

  1. Knowledgeable writing and that for the post.  That all you had to do was eat a certain combination of foods and you could see the extra pounds on your body melt away. The results so effective, that you could potentially lose as much as 10 pounds in 3 day. See more here http://3daysmilitarydiet.com/blog/3-day-army-diet.html

  2. I tried the military diet to lose an extra 10 lbs for my sister's upcoming wedding. Well, it was tougher than I though, but doable. The first day, I was quite irritable. However, I read from some blogs that this is our body's response to a low carb diet. I drank a lot of water to hydrate and did some light walking. The next 2 days were easier.
    I substituted half a cup of boiled flounder for the 1/2 cup canned tuna; didn't eat the hotdogs, too. I just replaced that with boiled chicken breast.
    After 3 days, I lost 7 lbs and I'm happy! I also did a lot of researches (I'm a bit of a skeptic) to make sure the diet is safe.
    Hope this helps everyone. Goodluck!
