What is the Military Diet?

The Military diet is a free 3 Day Diet Plan. It offers quick weight loss results – you could lose up to 10 pounds within a week.

Yes, you heard me right – you lose weight even after you finish the diet. In order to keep losing, you need to follow the 4 Day Off the Military diet plan, which is a typical 1500 calorie diet plan. More on this plan in my next post.

It’s not clear how the military are involved in inventing this diet, or why it is called that way (may be there is a shortage in diet naming, who knows…; but there is one thing I am quite sure about – you will like it.

What will you like best about the Military Diet plan?


  • Short – just 3 days in length
  • Easy – you DON’T need to buy a big list of healthy ingredients that take hours to prepare properly
  • Effective – very effective, indeed, for quick weight loss

It’s no secret that many weight loss diet plans are way too complicated. Some of them require you to be nearly a professional nutritionist to understand all the aspects of the diet plan.

Unlike these, I mentioned above, the Military diet plan is very simple, short, easy and effective, which in fact is all you seach for when you need to lose a few pounds quickly.

The grocery list for the Military diet plan menu is quite simple and won’t hurt you family budget at all. These are ingredients you can get at any grocery shop on the way back home.

Who is the 3 Day Military diet for?

Don’t get me wrong, I respect weight loss programs that promote slow and steady weight loss, but those are for people who have time to reach their weight loss goals. On the other hand, the Military diet is for people who don’t have the time to wait, but want to get skinny fast for an approaching social engagement like:

  • vacation
  • prom
  • anniversary
  • wedding, etc.

The Military diet is for people with strong will-power.

It’s very low calorie diet and strictly regimented, which makes it quite restrictive. However, it is completely bearable as you follow it only for 3 days. The rest 4 days you eat less strictly. So when need to be ready for the beach or if you have a social event to attend by the end of the week, the military diet is the best way to start your week.

The Military Diet is so tempting and keeps attracting more and more ardent followers. That’s not surprising at all, knowing the the results you may get.
However, this doesn’t mean the Military Diet is for everyone…

The Military Diet is for:

  • Highly motivated people, who have enough strong will power and a very small amount of time to lose a few extra pounds.
    The diet lasts three days only and most likely you will feel hungry, but with enough motivation and strong will-power you will get awesome results.
    I assure you – your weight loss results will be so amazing, that you will feel your efforts totally worthed.
  • People who don’t have much time shopping and preparing sophisticated diet food.
    As I already mentioned, the military diet is easy – its grocery list is quite simple and the ingredients can be bought at any grocery shop on your way back home
  • Dieters on a budget.
    But as I already mentioned above, the grocery list for the Military diet is limited to any grocery shop you enter on your way back home and won’t hurt you family budget at all.
  • People who prefer fad diets to slow and steady weight loss diets. You will appreciate the Military diet for its simplicity and the absence of choice, which believe me is a good thing sometimes.

Unlike many diets, which give you plenty of choices and decisions to make, the Military Diet, as the name suggests, is straight to the point. You simply eat what you are told to eat each day for breakfast, lunch and dinner and don’t have to spend time planning menus or learning recipes and preparation techniques.

  1. While on active duty & working at a MEPS induction station – this is the plan we used when a person needed to quickly drop a few pounds in order to qualify for the entrance exam. It always worked great
