Being fit and healthy is everyone’s dream. But in this period world, it is not easy to maintain your physique because our diets are converted from fresh and healthy to processed and fried. Moreover, our stress levels have significantly increased, and almost all of us are suffering from a disturbed sleep cycle. This leads to unhealthy weight gain and destroys the physique of a person.
People lose weight in days if they follow a strict diet for a week. It is also called a military diet.
This diet includes seven days, which are further divided into two portions. The first round is 3 days, which is a rigorous round and the one in which you will lose significant weight.
The second round is of remaining 4 days, which is less restricted than the first round. You are also allowed to have some snacks to fulfil your cravings.
This diet is usually applied in army or cops training, and some people do opt for this too if they want to attend some party or event and want to fit in a specific dress.
Let’s explore what is the menu of this military diet.
An average person needs 2000-3200 calories per day. Still, in this diet, a meal is taken in which a person will have only 12_1400 calories for the first three days and 1300_1700 in the remaining days.
For breakfast, the first item you can eat is a fruit, especially grapefruit. It is very beneficial for weight loss.
You can have roasted brown bread, and you can eat it with simple butter or peanut butter on it. Make sure not to use more than 2 tablespoons.
With that, you can take a glass of water with chia seeds in it, or you can have half cup of tea without sugar.
you can take just one toast followed by a small cup of tuna.
Half a cup of black coffee will help you to control your hunger.
Make sure you are not dehydrated. Drink almost 8 glasses of water per day.
For dinner, Increase the protein ratio and have one bowl of meat or chicken with half a cup of boiled green beans in it.
You can also eat one fruit like an apple or a banana to kill sweet cravings.

A 7-day military diet gives you instant weight loss, but it is not healthy at all. It is just a water loss and is short term as you are not losing fat. When you start eating in your regular routine, you will gain double the weight, and thus, the diet is not suitable for everyone. So it is always recommended to follow a complete 2_3 2-month diet plan to lose weight and also do exercises.
