I know 3 girls that have done it. They all lost weight. One friend did just the diet, no working out and lost 5 Lbs, my cousin worked out and did it and lost about 5 as well ( not that she has anything to lose to begin with at 5'3 140lbs), and her friend worked out and did it and lost 8 Lbs. I have not done it yet but I want to!!!

The most accurate way to control caloric intake is to control the size of food portions you eat. You can use standard household measuring utensils and a small kitchen scale to measure portions of foods and beverages so you have a better idea of exactly what your portion sizes are. It may also be helpful to keep a daily record of all the foods you’ve eaten and physical activity you’ve done so you can balance your calorie intake against your physical output.



^^^Somehow, I doubt that's the same thing you're talking about

I hate how people tack on military, or bootcamp, or something else to make it sound hardcore. You want hardcore? PT with some marines. Do bear crawls up sand dunes with an 80lb ruck. The actual military would kick me out if I followed some ridiculous crash diet that compromised my health.
November 14, 2012 8:43 AM
Wow, just read the food plan. I'd be chewing someones face off if I only ate that.

Just looked it up. This is a VERY OLD diet, My mom use to do this when I was little and I tried it several times with her after that. They also call it the Three-Day Cleveland Clinic Diet and the 3 day Hotdog diet. Really you will lose a few pounds and put them right back. Trust me done it when I was in my teens and it doesnt work. Plus you will be hungry LOL.

Perhaps the military diet if you were cornered in Bataan...




I would automatically be wary of anything that has a time limit or a set meal plan.

What is it about this "diet" that interests you?

OMG..this was around in the 70's. Three day diet-- what is it, like 500 calories per day. Why bother, you will gain it all back when you eat normally again. Try something healthy.

I think it looks like a good jump start. 5-8lbs in 3 days! heck ya I would stay motivated to exercise and eat healthier if I could lose that much right off the bat.

It's normally water weight and is gained back once the person starts eating normal.

Any updates on the three day diet? I think it's awesome...and I added all the cals per day and it's like 1200...so it's not as horrible as people think

I did this diet once every few months for the entire duration of 2010, and I did in fact lose weight. The first 3-5 times I lost an average of 5-9lbs within the 3 days. Then after that it would only be a 1-2lb loss. I did not gain back any weight and managed to lose 50lbs (Not off the 3 day diet alone, but off of exercise) The 3 day diet was only to help whenever I plateau...

I also think the calorie intake is about 800 calories not 1200.

I gained back 35lbs in the summer of 2012 due to being in a new relationship and abandoning my exercise completely. I've tried the 3 day diet twice this year and lost 0lbs. So I think initially it helps the first few times, but after that your body gets used to it.

Hope that helped.

I doubt it, I never gained the weight back. I also continued a exercise routine, and ate healthier as well. Its great as a jumpstart.

Wow a Three Day Military diet! Who comes up with this crap? I just retired after 20 yrs of Active Duty and have never seen or heard of a military diet. Does this mean eating MRE's or T-rations? Those are the only "military" foods I can think of.

From what I have seen during deployments, the Army is the last place I would want to get nutrition advice from. I have never seen so many fat soldiers. I know other components have their share but the Army takes the cake.

If it was on deployment, you probably saw 85% reservists. Just say'n.

Think....just think seriously for a moment....if there is anything that doesn't sound absurd about the "chemical reactions" between hot dogs and vanilla ice cream. If it sounds absurd, that's because it is. Any weight lost is on this is due to calorie restriction, which you can do with far more foods than Saltine crackers, hot dogs, and ice cream.

There is no need to restrict yourself to that bizarre, single combination of foods.
