In addition, the diet claims that no strenuous activity or exercise is required, and no pills or supplements needed to assist in this weight loss plan. It also proclaims that the chemically formulated food combination is designed to not only burn fat, but also kick start your metabolism to lose weight fast. The 3 day diet menu is free on the internet, and is included in this review. Not only is it free, but the meal plan itself also seems very affordable. Nonetheless, in this case I’m not sure if free and affordable equate to a good deal. After a closer look at the 3 day diet menu, and the 3 Day Military Diet plan, I did have some major concerns and questions I needed answering. And thus, I have written The 3 Day Military Diet Review to give you more information and insight as to whether the military diet is right for you. So let’s get started.

What is the Three Day Military Diet Plan?

My first Impression of the Military Diet

I must say the hot dogs and the ice cream threw me off a tad. But of course, this could go both ways. You either hated seeing the hot dogs and ice cream in a diet plan, or you absolutely loved the idea. Personally I would substitute the hot dogs which is highly processed scrap meat, high in nitrates, sodium and saturated fat. And I will spare you the details of what animal scraps are used.

Secondly, ice cream is not only high in sugar, but also high in saturated fat. And the diet indicates that sugar in the ice cream is acceptable. This is very strange in my opinion. But maybe that is what is attracting people to this diet.

Thirdly, I would have to replace the peanut butter, cheese and banana. Eating these for three days would surely add 2-3 pounds of weight caused by constipation alone. Sorry, I just had to share that.

Finally, it appears the menu is spread a little thin over three days. By only eating three times each day, I can see where I would most likely feel starved and sick to my stomach every night before bedtime. So, I don’t think this diet would be for me.

The 3 Day Military Diet Review – Questions and Concerns

At first glance, this diet did not appear to be very natural or healthy when having seen hot dogs and ice cream included in the menu. On further inspection, seeing the options to substitute foods made this a bit more acceptable, but still questionable.
