3 day military diet (up to 10lbs)

7 1
Hey Everyone.

I saw this on pinterest and thought it was interesting.  I was thinking about trying it and telling you guys my results.  I figured 3 days isn't so bad.  If anyone else wants to try it and post results that would be neat.

If it happens, then 150 pounds guy will vanish after 45

I've fasted on nothing but plain water on several occasions from 1 to 12 consecutive days, and I've consistently lost 2 pounds a day. So that would be 6 pounds in 3 days consuming a total of zero calories. I don't see how eating ANYTHING totaling more than zero calories can even approach that, let alone exceed it, unless significant exercise was part of the program.

I have read an article about weight loss, and its EXTREMELY unhealthy to rapidly loose weight. Play it safe and make this go over a span of like a week at the minimum.

yea that's why I kinda wanted to try it because you never know what will happen.

One of the girls I worked with years ago wanted to do a military diet high in protein, lots of eggs and grapefruit. She was advised not to because too much protein unless you have rigorous activity can cause your kidneys damage.

No fad diet will give you lasting results. It may help you to lose weight for an event, but unless you change your eating and exercising behaviors, the weight loss will be very temporary.

This has been around for over 30 yrs. I tried it when I was younger and it definitely works and everyone I knew that did it worked for them to. It is like fasting since you eat so little but if you follow it exactly it will work. Also if you starve yourself and not eat anything you wont lose as much since your body goes into starvation mode and holds on to the fat and it is so unhealthy you could faint or something worse.

I am not usually about fad diets.... I ended up doing 2 days and losing 5 lbs. I did drink some beer. So it probably could of been more if I didn't do that. The only reason why I didn't finish the 3rd day was because I went to a birthday party.

The healthy amount of weight to lose is 1-2 pounds a week

I was a wrestler in high school. Ive had to cut just 2-3 pounds in the same time frame its a hell of a lot of work. Fasting, running for hours every day, etc. Sorry but youre not cutting 10 pounds in 3 days.

10 pounds in 3 days is not healthy for anyone. I don't believe this diet first of all and 2nd of all it would not be good for you to do
