SAN DIEGO, CA, May 01, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Military Diet, also known as the Ice Cream Diet, is an effective way to quickly lose weight. This diet is known for its quick weight loss due to its calorie cut and intermittent fasting and unlike other diets, it doesn’t require any exercise. Although not at all affiliated with the military, eating fewer calories is a surefire way to lose weight. So, is this diet right for you?

What This Diet Promises
Sticking to the strict three-days “on” and four days “off” in this strict regimen, this diet promises you will lose ten pounds within the first week, and up to 30 pounds lost within the first month. How does the science stack up? The trick to losing weight is indeed cutting back calories. Even though this diet claims you have four days “off,” these days your calorie count is restricted to just 1500 calories. However, most diets work in tandem with weekly exercise routines that encourage muscle growth along with weight loss. There are also no coping strategies for side effects of this diet.

The most complained-about side effect is hunger pangs, which is expected when you drastically reduce the number of calories you consume every day. Along with intermittent fasting, this diet keeps you on a stringent food-specific meal plan for three days straight. Although it is not included, most people add in natural supplements to curb their hunger cravings. Supplements such as garcinia cambogia or green coffee have no side effects and help dissipate any hunger pangs you may feel between meals.

What You Didn’t Know About This Diet
Although this diet claims success, it also may fall under the category of “fad diets” as you can regain the weight as soon as you go off the diet. Although this diet doesn’t eliminate major food groups from your daily meal plan, its strict portion control doesn’t help teach the user how to effectively portion their food. Therefore, a person may take the foods in their diet – hot dogs, ice cream, packaged crackers – and think these are healthy and okay to eat every day. And because exercise isn’t emphasized, you have a very real chance of gaining the weight back after you’ve finished this diet.

Three Days On – What You Should Eat
So, what exactly is this diet? It contains three consecutive days where you reduce your calorie intake from 1,400 calories to just 1,100 calories. There is no snacking suggested and the beverages you are allowed to consume are just coffee, tea and water. These foods do not limit carbohydrates, protein or healthy fats from peanut butter. A high fiber and high protein diet can increase your metabolism. Although this diet shows fast results, it is not healthy to remain on it for longer than a month. It may cause vitamin deficiency and fatigue from the low-calorie count.

1st Day: 1,400 calories
Breakfast:
½ grapefruit
1 slice of toast
2 tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
cup of coffee or caffeinated tea
Lunch:
½ cup of tuna
slice of toast (preferably whole wheat)
cup of coffee or caffeinated tea
Dinner:
3 oz of chicken, steak, or fish
1 cup of green beans
½ banana
1 apple
1 cup of vanilla ice cream

2nd Day: 1,200 calories
Breakfast:
1 egg, cooked to your preference
1 slice of toast
½ banana
cup of coffee or caffeinated tea
Lunch:
1 cup cottage cheese
1 hard boiled egg
5 saltine crackers
Dinner:
2 plain hot dogs, no bun
1 cup broccoli
½ cup carrots
½ banana
½ cup vanilla ice cream

3rd Day: 1,100 calories
Breakfast:
5 saltines
1 slice cheddar cheese
1 apple
Lunch:
1 egg, cooked to your preference
slice of toast
Dinner
1 cup tuna
½ banana
1 cup vanilla ice cream

If you’re used to having a glass of wine or beer every night, you have to say goodbye for these three days. There are no sugary drinks allowed either, including diet sodas. Water is the healthiest choice you can make as it flushes out your system, keeps you hydrated, and helps you feel full when you think you are hungry. Basically, staying hydrated helps you stay in shape.

Four Days “Off”
As we stated before, these four days off are still restricted. Only 1,500 calories are allowed for your daily intake, but there is no limit to what foods you should be eating. If you want 1,500 calories of ice cream, that isn’t discouraged on this diet. However, “healthy eating” is encouraged, which not only provides you with more energy throughout the day, you’ll feel better, too. This includes some individual research of how to maintain a well-balanced diet and avoid unhealthy and high-sugar snacks.

Is It Right For You?
Now that you know all about it, you can decide if the military diet is right for you. For people who benefit from strict regimens, this diet may prove very useful; they don’t need to balance calories or portion control; they can eat hot dogs, eggs, and toast and still lose weight. However, if you are looking for more of a healthy lifestyle, this diet is not for you.
