MILITARY DIET FAQs:
NOTE: I am NOT the creator of this diet. This is a well known diet that I decided to try to see if it actually worked. Please refer to The Military Diet website to answer any questions you may have:
Q: Is there substitutions for foods?
A: Yes. Please refer to the website above for substitutions.
Q: Did you exercise with this diet?
A: Yes, but only one day. The diet states that you should maintain your daily exercise routine if you have one already.
Q: Do you lose water weight or fat?
A: Both. The diet is able to help you slim down by burning fat and helping you get rid of extra water weight.
Q: Will I lose muscle mass during the diet?
A: No. The body burns carbs & fat first. The body only burns muscle as a last resort. Your body will NOT burn muscle tissue in the 3 days of doing this diet.
10 Simple Steps to improve your fat loss
1) Calculate how many calories you body needs to consume to maintain your existing weight. This is called you maintenance calories. (Search Google with “calorie needs” and you will find a few different calculators to help you with this)
2) Initially deduct 10%(to a maximum of 500Kcal) off the total maintenance calories. Drastically reducing your calories will result in muscle and water loss – not fat loss.
3) Divide you calories over 5 or 6 meals rather then 2 or 3. You should aim to eat every 3-4 hours.
4) Cut out all simple carbohydrates (except straight after exercise, eat whole grain, high fibre foods.)
5) Exercise at least 3 times a week, doing 30 minutes of cardio to a reasonable level of intensity. This will help to create the calorie deficit and encourage your body to lose fat.
6) Make simple replacements in your diet, Sweetener in place of sugar, diet drinks in place of full sugar drinks, use leaner cuts of meat etc. At first these changes may be difficult but you will get used to them and make vital calorie savings every day.
7) Drink plenty of water – at least 2 litres of water every day – if you are dehydrated you body will be less efficient and will make fat loss more difficult.
8) Try to eat low carb(complex only!), low fat and moderate protein. From my experience the South Beach Diet is excellent.
9) Keep a food diary to monitor how many calories you are consuming – it is very easy to over eat.
10) Supplementing you diet can make fat loss easier. A diet high in protein can help preserve muscle (more muscle means an increase in metabolism). There are also some fat loss supplements available which help boost your metabolism, this is useful as your metabolism may slow during extended periods of dieting.Get Motivated - Watch More Videos
