The military diet, also known as the “3-day diet”, is an extreme low-calorie diet. It would allow rapid weight loss, up to precisely 4.5kg in just one week. This regime is articulated in two very distinct phases. The first concerns the first three days of the week, during which the diet should be carried out on the basis of low-calorie meals. Clearly, only certain very specific foods can be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner during this period. Forget the snack, the snacks are to be forgotten during these first three days. For the next four days, the restrictions ease, but those on the military diet are still encouraged to eat healthy.
What foods are allowed under the military diet ?
During the first phase of the diet, calorie intake should be 1,500 calories per day. To achieve this diet, you must adhere to a menu to the letter in order to obtain the best possible benefits, that is, significant weight loss.
++ The foods allowed during the first 3 days of the diet are:
Tea or coffee
Meat (in very small quantities)
Vanilla ice cream
Crackers or savory cupcakes (in small quantities)
In terms of drinking, water is highly recommended as part of this diet. Tea or coffee are also allowed, as long as no cream or sugar is added.
