3 Day Diet-Day TWO

WOOO! Day TWO is over!

It went just as well as day one, though I had some serious concerns for the later part of the day.

Breakfast- piece of cake! I LOVE fried eggs, and this egg meal was no restrictions on how you cooked it! I used a little non-stick spray, salt, pepper and a breakfast from heaven was created :)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice of toast
  • 1/2 banana
It was really yummy and easy! I loved it. And of course it was filling. Eggs are like the super food of the WORLD. I am always so satisfied after I eat one. Especially on toast, with a banana.






For lunch, I was seriously apprehensive. I DO NOT eat hard boiled eggs. They really gross me out. Too many summer barbecues with them left out for hours. I get really weird about perishables left out for too long and eating them. I can't do it. 

BUT, I said I was going to stick to this whole diet. So, I will. Even if it kills me.


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



It was actually really, REALLY good! I kinda died inside a little when I was eating it, but in a OMGamIreallydoingthisitssogood way. It was also INCREDIBLY easy to take to work. I always worry about what to take to work, what if it's not enough, what if it's too complicated, what if the breaker blows and I can't cook it?? Life at work is stressful enough, without food concerns.

Anyway, it was delicious. And filling. Again, super food=eggs. I also really like cheese and soda crackers. Together or separate. It's all yummy.

Dinner was pretty awesome. Again, no pic! I get so distracted at home with all the cooking apparently. 
  • 2 beef/turkey hot dogs
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 1/2 cup carrots
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 cup regular vanilla ice cream
Again, it was pretty excellent. I couldn't stomach the broccoli. I don't know if it was ready, it was kinda right. It wasn't a good thing. But even without eating it, I was still fairly full and overall pleased with it.

TIPS & NOTES

  • Again, sandwiching this stuff makes a way better meal. But you can cook breakfast egg however you want! Enjoy it. Scrambled, fried, boiled, poached. It's such a delicious, versatile food.
  • Um, make sure your veggies are edible, and clean. None of that pesticide stuff is good for you. Make sure to soak it all in vinegar and water.
  • I cooked the hot dogs in bite size bits so they are a little crispy and yummy cooked. If you don't have a BBQ, then I'd recommend this. 
  • I definitely plan to try replacing some of these veggies on another occasion to see if it works as well.

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

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

Dinner
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
Breakfast
1 egg
1 slice of toast
1/2 banana

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

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

Military 3 Day Diet- RESULTS

Good MORNING!

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…
