3 Day Diet Results- Round 3

So everyone, from personal experience, I will tell you that if you do this diet you really do need to STICK to it! When I went off it last week, I only lost 4. Granted, that is a pretty good number still. But if you aren't really really good on your off days, you will probably gain it all back. 

I did it again this week (Tuesday-Thursday) and I stuck with it. I lost SEVEN (7) pounds again! It was very exciting. And honestly, doing it this time all the way through, was so much easier. I feel like the first two rounds were practice and I found all the sweet spots. 

I chewed a lot more gum and sucked on a few sugar-free candies. I had steak for the first night, which is really so good and such a treat. Then throughout the week, if someone offered lunch, I'd decline. If someone offered me something very small, like a bit of their really awesome TORTILLA pizza, then I'd take a little bite. But I didn't have more than LITERALLY a bite of what was offered. It gave me a quick taste, but not enough to really make a difference. I had a bite of jerky the last night, too. And for lunch on the last day, I ran out of wheat bread. I used an english muffin instead. On half I had the hard boiled egg, on the other half, I used the tiniest amount of butter and enjoyed a buttered, toasted snack. It was great.

I still don't really feel like I'm dying or being deprived. It is a really good choice to do it in the middle of the week too. It still gives me a few days to go out or be social at work, but nothing that interesting happens Tuesday-Thursday, so I don't miss out on BBQs or anything else fun!

I really am enjoying this and I expect to net at least 5 this time around :)

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…
