Summer is not over yet but those excesses are already beginning to be noticed during the holidays. Do not panic, you still have time to keep them at bay with the military diet. These types of diets are carried out to purify the body and lower volume in a short time. It is not advisable to do the diet for more than 3 days in a row followed by 4 days off if you want to repeat it again.
This diet basically consists of restricting types of food and calories for a short period of time. During the days that the diet is carried out, it is recommended not to do sports activities or to replace them with moderate cardiovascular exercises such as walking or going for a bike ride for 30 or 60 minutes.
In this diet, mid-morning meals and snacks are suppressed but can be substituted for coffee or infusions. Throughout the diet, the calories that are ingested will go from higher to lower quantity and mainly ingredients with a high protein index will be used.
To start the day you can eat a slice of toast with butter or olive oil. You can accompany it with a coffee or tea to taste. As you cannot add sugar, we recommend using vanilla-flavored milk or vegetables such as almonds to sweeten it naturally. It is important to have a drink with some caffeine for its thermogenic properties to help burn calories.
Taking advantage of the fact that you start the day with motivation, at lunchtime you should mount a whole wheat toast with a can of tuna accompanied by a coffee or tea. You can garnish it with chia seeds, pepper, or a little low-calorie mayonnaise.
For dinner, have a moderately grilled or grilled piece of meat, a cup of green beans, half a banana, an apple, and a small cup of ice cream. If you don’t feel like eating meat, you can substitute it for chickpeas or green beans.
You may wake up a little weaker today but you start to feel lighter. For breakfast, prepare a whole wheat or cereal toast with a whole egg and the other half of the banana. If an intense day of activity or work awaits you, you can double the portion.
For lunch, prepare a cup of cottage cheese, a hard-boiled egg and an individual packet of salted biscuits such as crackers or a bimbo toast.
For dinner you can go back to protein, preferably a lean meat such as turkey or chicken, a cup of steamed or grilled broccoli, half a cup of carrots and half a banana. You can accompany it with a glass of milk or an apple smoothie.
Congratulations you have reached the last day. Your body and your scale are probably already noticing the results. For breakfast have a packet of crackers or a slice of bread with oil, a portion of fresh cheese and an apple. You can accompany it again with coffee and tea. If you need an extra dose of sugar to face the day you can sweeten it with a tablespoon of honey.
For lunch you can only have a slice of whole wheat bread and we recommend making the scrambled egg to spread as if it were toast. If it seems too scarce, it is allowed to change it for two grilled chicken breast fillets.
Only one can of tuna and one banana are allowed for the last supper.
After these three days of diet you may see that you have lost between 3 or 4 kilos and have reduced the volume of your body. This is because you have lost a lot of fluids and you have drastically lowered the number of calories you eat each day. It is important to continue drinking 2 liters of water daily to hydrate the body and eliminate toxins that it does not need. If you do not want to suffer the dreaded rebound effect, continue the rest of the week eating in a balanced way, avoiding foods with an excess of calories or processed products. So the suffering will have been worth it!
