Would anticipate: short-term loss with significant water loss. The military diet (AKA 3 day diet) is a short term diet plan. A specific low calorie diet menu is spelled out & is to be used 3 days per week. Food choices are provided for four “days off” totaling 1,500 calorie intake per day.

Diet and Activity: Key is to burn more calories than you take in. Body likes to use carbohydrates (sugar/pasta/bread/potatoes) Decreasing carbohydrates helpful. Eat more lean protein like chicken, fish, nuts, beans. Avoid saturated fats (animal fats). Need some fat so plant based fats best. Vegs and fruits have fiber which reduces hunger. Lastly need exercise, 30-40 min walking 5x/wk to start. 1500-1800 cal/day ...Read more

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more
