DAY ONE MILITARY DIET

Daily Updates

Yay yay yay! 

I have completed day one of the diet!

I have eaten-

Breakfast:  

This is one piece of wholemeal toast with two WHOLE tablespoons (30g) of peanut butter. Wow. That was a lot of peanut butter, way more than I would normally have eaten but still I enjoyed it, it felt like a treat to be honest ha. There is a caffeinated black tea with it. What is not included in this diet is the grapefruit that I was supposed to eat. I didn’t have any grapefruit in the house, unfortunately, so the substitution was for a half teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in water. I drank this and it was foul. However, it is supposed to kick start your metabolism or fat burning process in the liver! 

Lunch:

 

Lunch was delish, but very little as you can see. This was all I ate. Usually I finish off with some other vegetables like cucumber and cherry tomatoes and I did actually crave them! However I stuck to my guns. So here, I drank one caffeinated tea again. I ate one piece of wholemeal toast with a can of tuna. I did season the tuna with salt and pepper which I don’t normally do, I would put a sauce on it but I didn’t. 

Tea:

 

Here is my dinner. They told us to eat a deck of cards sized piece of meat (85g) and a cup of green beans. I didn’t have either of these and so I ate 3 slices of ham, 1 slice of pastrami, a lot of lettuce and cucumber which came to about 31 calories which is the amount the green beans would have come to. On top of that I ate:

 

I ate half a banana and an apple. Also I was allowed to eat a whole cup of vanilla ice cream which I substituted for 187g of Greek yogurt with 30g fruit jam which was probably a lot less calories. 

I don’t feel hungry at the moment. I drank nine cups of tea/water throughout the day plus a Vitamin C tablet which was 10 calories.

I did work out my calories just to see how many it was- 964! That’s so so low. I didn’t do any exercise today and I did feel a bit dizzy at times but I just had to drink some water and I was fine!

So that’s the end of day one.

You may wonder what sparked my decision to do this diet. Well. Apparently I weigh 11 stone 0.4 lbs. I cried. I know I have been binging lately but I didn’t deserve to be that weight. Anyway with the wedding approaching it has frightened me into dieting hardcore style.

If any of you have not heard of this diet then go to http://www.themilitarydiet.com 

It has all the information on there including substitutions and FAQs.

I have been trawling through the vast amount of success stories online especially on YouTube so please look and get inspired. 

Im excited to find out my results and see how tomorrow goes! Wish me luck.

Hello lovelies,

I had an ok day today, I woke up this morning and my knee was ceased up and incredibly painful from the exercise I have been doing and so I was forced to have a day off. I was craving going on the treadmill (yes I know-mad!). Unfortunately this means I have not burnt any of the calories I have eaten.

Here is my myfitnesspal update for the 02/09/14:

Breakfast: 0kcal.

Total: 0kcal.

Lunch: Cooked ham 28kcal, 4x aldi gourmet sea salt crackers 95kcal, creamy horseradish sauce 30kcal, roast beef 29kcal, coleslaw 50kcal, shredded beetroot 34kcal and cucumber 8kcal.

Total: 274kcal.

Tea: Thai green curry 300kcal (approx.), white rice 200kcal, mango chutney 15kcal.

Total: 515kcal.

Snacks: 2x green tea 2kcal, 2x raspberries 4kcal, nectarine 70kcal, cranberry juice 46kcal

Total: 122kcal.

0 exercise

Fluid: 2litres

Overall intake is +1,085 which is awful compared to what I have been doing and is by far the worst day. I really need to get back onto my exercise regime and hopefully I will do tomorrow. Unfortunately I am going out to eat tomorrow which will be interesting to see if I can still be under 1,200kcal. It should be ok as long as I am extremely careful in the day and eat next to nothing.

Today I went shopping for things for university and anything else I wanted. I went into New Look and bought this white jumper:

I was delighted to find that the 12 was overly large and so I bought a 10 that looks really nice. I went into the changing room and tried it on and when I took my clothes off and looked at myself in the mirror, I didn’t get as repulsed as I normally do! I actually thought my stomach was quite flat. Happy happy.
