You don’t have to enlist in the military to take advantage of a low calorie, fat burning diet. But you do need to adopt a military diet for three short days, and both men and women can do it, albeit men might want to add an extra 100 calories of protein per day. But be careful, as reducing your daily calorie intake could be potentially damaging if you have a condition, food allergies, or could be eating way too little calories. Take a look at the plan, and ask your nutritionist first. Let’s check out the power of shred in action!
Day One: Breakfast
Kickstart your metabolism with half a grapefruit, a slice of whole wheat or multigrain toast with 2 tbsps. of peanut butter, and a cup of black coffee or tea, but avoid sugar, cream, milk or sweeteners.. If you’re allergic to peanuts, then use soy butter, or pumpkin butter.
Day One: Lunch
Spread half a cup of tuna on a slice of toast and season it with low to no calorie ingredients like garlic salt, pepper, or honey mustard, and drink water, tea, or black coffee to help it go down smoothly.
Day One: Dinner
Meat lovers can enjoy 3 ounces of meat, any kind, 1 cup of green beans, half a banana, a small apple, and YES! A cup of vanilla ice cream. Consider that last one a reward for being so good all day.
Day Two: Breakfast
Place one whole egg on a slice of multi grain or whole wheat toast, and include a half of a banana on the side. Remember that the goal is to maintain your calorie intake limited to 1,500 or less, without causing you to pass out.
Day Two: Lunch
You can either have a slice of cheddar cheese or one cup of cottage cheese, a hard-boiled egg, and 5 saltine crackers. But whatever you do, don’t go crazy at the gym. Instead, opt for a 30-minute walk, because you’re not eating enough for huge workout.
Day Two: Dinner
Enjoy two hot dogs without the buns, a cup of broccoli, half a cup of carrots, half a banana, and half a cup of vanilla ice cream. If you’re not a fan of ice cream (are you nuts?) then substitute it with a cup of apple juice or strawberry flavored almond milk.
Day Three: Breakfast
The end is almost here! Yay! Start out your third day with 5 saltine crackers, a slice of cheddar cheese, and a small apple. You can also replace the saltine corkers with rice cakes, and the cheddar cheese with ham, eggs, or soy cheese.
Day Three: Lunch
Don’t expect to feel fulfilled with this meal. It involves one hardboiled egg and a slice of whole wheat or multi grain toast. Of course, you can switch the egg for two slices of bacon or one chicken wing. Also, have you noticed how the calorie restrictions have gotten worse?
