Is the 3 day (military) diet better than doing the atkins diet for faster results and more weight loss? 14 years old 250 pounds.

Is the 3 day (military) diet better than doing the atkins diet for faster results and more weight loss? 14 years old 250 pounds.

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

Water: 3 days of wt loss? Much of this is probably water. If you continue at that rate of weight loss it will be harder to keep it off than if you loose it slower. ...Read more

I need to loose weight and get fit in 4 weeks. Can i follow the military diet. I am also practicing soccer 3 times a week.

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

I am not an expert: on the military diet. I looked over several sites and one indicated that black coffee was acceptable. If that was the case - would anticipate that tea would be too. But why go on a short diet like this? 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.

Have u heard of the3day military diet? I am 200pounds @5^1 and my wedding is in about 3weeks! do u think this diet'll help me lose weight!?

Perhaps temporarily: It's unrealistic to expect to lose much weight in the next 3 weeks- the time to work on this was months ago. You may lose a few pounds but you'll likely regain it once you stop it. A good objective review is at http://weightloss.About.Com/od/dietmistakes/a/the-3-day-military-diet-review.Htm the best way to lose weight is by permanent changes in diet- i recommend this one: http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht. ...Read more

If you do give in - make sure the snack is put away completely - Out of sight means out of mind which means lower calorie intake. Good Luck. ...Read more

I just tested positive for pregnancy.I was asked to loose weight. I wish to know if i can follow the military diet to do so? As i need to loose fast.

You must decline: I am a navy captain, and no member of the military will ask you to lose weight while pregnant. You need to gain appropriately to provide nutrition for the baby's growth. Weight loss could result in damage to the fetus, especially during critical organ maturation and growth. This is an unlawful and unethical order or request, which you can take up the chain if you need to. ...Read more

I just tested pregnant.My dr had asked me to loose weight b4 getting pregnant. I wish to loose fast. Can i follow the 3day military diet? Is it safe?

NOT safe during preg: Your doctor said lose weight before pregnancy- now that you're pregnant you can't do that. No weight loss program is safe now because we have lots of environmental toxins stored in our fat tissues. When we lose weight these toxins enter our blood stream. In early pregnancy exposures to these toxins is very dangerous to your baby. Eat a healthy diet during pregnancy & focus on weight loss after. ...Read more

I just started a weight loss program and they told me diet pop is a free food. It doesn't count for anything. Isn't diet pop bad for you?

Yes it is: Diet pop won't affect your weight loss for most part however it containing food coloring and chemicals like a aspartame which is not good for your health. Diet sodas that contain stevia are probably the healthiest. Any liquid that comes in a can is exposed to a lot of chemicals which have been known to be cancerous in long term including soups etc. Try sodas in a glass like kombucha which is healt. ...Read more

I will be going to doctor he has weight loss program he has B12 and liposuction shot also diet exercise people have lost weight from him is it good?

I hope so: If he monitors your progress and counsels you on weight loss with exercise and proper diet as well, it sounds as though it is fine, as witnessed as people losing weight "weight clinics" such as this aren't always about the shots you get, but more about being motivated to lose and do as instructed, especially since your probably paying for it, you want to assure you are getting your monies worth. ...Read more
