3 Day Diet-Day THREE

Finish line in sight! :)
Breakfast was pretty good, although when I looked at it, even after the previous days of eating so little, it looked pretty meager.  It was crackers and cheese and apples. I've seen my grandma eat this a lot lately, she's all alone now and doesn't like to cook for herself, so I totally understand why this would be easy and fairly nutritious! It just doesn't seem like a lot at first...

  • Black coffee or tea with Equal or Sweet & Low
  • 5 regular saltine crackers
  • 2 oz. cheddar cheese
  • 1 apple

Let me tell you, this is actually a pretty hearty meal! It's so yummy and cheese and crackers always go together. And of course, so do cheese and apples. I really enjoyed it. Protein, and cheesy and crunch and crack. It is a little odd to eat as a breakfast, though it is filling.

For lunch, another one of those hard boiled egg things. It was another great meal!

  • 1 hardboiled egg
  • 1 slice toast
  • Black coffee or tea with Equal or Sweet & Low
Again. So tasty. I felt full and satisfied. I'm so glad this is the diet. I haven't felt deprived this whole time!

Ok, now comes the hard part. Dinner. Dinner was kinda awful, even with the bowl of ice cream to smooth it over. Hard boiled eggs were nothing compared to this.

  • 1 cup tuna
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 cup regular vanilla ice cream

Yes, you did read that right. Tuna. Just tuna. All alone, not a cracker or bread in sight. It was awful. I ate as much as I could of those big cans. I had to finish like 90% before the boyfriend would let me eat the banana and ice cream. Luckily I was fairly hungry by the time it happened, but even that was difficult and not as good a motivator as hoped.

It's so exciting that this is the last day! I can't wait to see how it turns out :)

3 Day/Military Diet

I realize that this is a "fad diet". But I'm going to try it. It's only for 3 days for one thing. If it doesn't work, ok. If it does, then I can use it as a tool to kickstart my weight loss and/or metabolism and then continue eating my healthier eating habits to continue losing weight. 

UPDATE: Here is the link to my RESULTS :) 

The diet is as follows (with no exceptions or substitutions supposedly, although there are multiple versions of the 3 day diet): 

Day 1
Black coffee or tea with Stevia
1/2 grapefruit or juice
1 slice toast with 1 tablespoon peanut butter

1/2 cup of tuna
1 slice toast
Black coffee or tea with Stevia

3 ounces of lean meat or chicken (any kind)
1 cup green beans
1/2 banana
1 apple
1 cup regular vanilla ice cream

Day 2
1 egg
1 slice of toast
1/2 banana

1 cup cottage cheese or 2 oz cheddar cheese
1 hard boiled egg
5 regular saltine/soda crackers

2 beef/turkey hot dogs
1 cup broccoli
1/2 cup carrots
1/2 …

Military 3 Day Diet- RESULTS


So the results are in! But before I get to them, I want to summarize the whole experience.

Overall, this is a really satisfying, easy diet. It is convenient and quick. It fills you up with a variety of foods, all with different nutritional pluses and there is plenty of sweet, meat, and crunchiness for everyone's needs! 

It is only 3 days long, so the commitment isn't hard, even for the commitment-phobes out there. Plus, it has ICE CREAM!! How can you go wrong? Even the bad stuff isn't that bad, or only for a meal or two.

The next time or two I do it (because I will do it again), then I'll be tweaking it just a little. Chicken here instead of tuna, or replacing a meal with one from the day before. I will see how  well it works and post my results as well. 

After you finish the 3 day part, you have 4 other days until you can do it again. Which honestly makes a ton of sense. Even though you may not be feeling hungry, your body isn't meant to function on so fe…

Month One Progress

After about one month now, I've lost almost 8 pounds. I consider that to be an accomplishment as it is an average of two ponds a week and it's the total that has stayed off. I fully expect to never see those 8 pounds again!

I've switched to generally eating healthier instead of continuing the three day diet. I'm sure I will still do it on occasion, when I need to lose a few or if I plateau. But I really want to make sure that these are life changes that I'm making. I want to KNOW that these 8 pounds are never coming back. And the only way I can do that is to make sure that the choices I make on a daily basis will keep me healthy, happy and, for the time being, on a downward trajectory weight-wise. 
In fact, I've even started running. Not a lot, mind you. But the boyfriend is thrilled and I ran two miles in as many days. With most of it being in quarter mile increments. I hadn't expected to be able or willing to run at all before I was under 200 lbs, but th…
