The Military Diet

3 Day Diet Plan

Lose upto 10 pounds in 3 days? Seems impossible right? But it doesn´t hurt to try and lock yourself from all the those cravings. Afterall, it is just three days.

When you have to fit in those lovely dress or suit for special day, or simply wanted to look better, or just wanted to lose weight fast, the most popular answer is “the military diet”.

What is Military Diet?

It claims that it can help you lose weight quickly, up to 10 pounds (4.5 kg) in 3 days. And others claim even more.

The military diet is simple. There is no expensive supplement or complicated special food you need to buy. All items can be easily found in your local supermarket.

It is all about DISCIPLINE.
