I keep losing weight, but it keeps finding me again

I thought I would take a detour this week from fashion and give you a quick insight into something I seem to be constantly doing... dieting.

I've never been one of these naturally skinny girls, who just seem to look WOW in everything, but I am an average size 10... occasionally a 12 when I decide to munch to my hearts content. 

When it comes to diets... I am a bit of a yoyo dieter, I confess, but I've stumbled across a new diet that I haven't tried and without sounding like a cheese ball, it really worked. I dunno if any of you have heard about it, but it's called the Military Diet. It's not as scary as it sounds and the best bit is it's only three days long. You'll all have heard of the 5:2 diet: well it's similar in a lot of ways, but stricter. You have to follow it exactly... no cheating or it won't work. 

I was a little sceptical at first... espesh when it says results up to 10lb weight loss. So I thought, what the heck, it's only three days. Me and my friend did it together (it helps if you have support) and although it was tough, I did lose 4lb. 

So... here's a breakdown of what I ate!

Day 1: 

Black Tea
Chunky Peanut butter (substitue sunflower spread) on wholemeal toast
half a Grapefruit (supstitue orange)

1 slice of wholemeal toast
1/2 cup of tuna.... we worked it out as 3/4 of a tin of tuna

Green Beans 
1 ounce of any meat... Chicken is the best as it's lean.

1 small Apple
1/2 a Banana 
1 cup of vanilla ice cream. 

Drinks: water! 

Day 2:

1 slice of wholemeal toast
1 egg, cooked however you like
1/2 Banana ( I chose to save mine for later)

4 crackers
1 boiled egg
1 cup of cottage cheese (substitute 1 slice of cheddar)

1/2 cup of carrots
1 cup of broccoli
2 hot dogs (no bread)

1/2 a cup of ice cream
(my saved banana)

Drinks: Water!

Day 3: 

4 crackers
Small apple (half a large)
1 slice of cheddar cheese (substitute a cup of cottage cheese)

1 slice of wholemeal toast
1 egg, cooked however

1 cup of tuna

1 cup of ice cream
1/2 a banana

Drinks: Water!!!

If you're like me and NEED your caffeine... you can have black coffee or tea. Ok it's not as nice and fulfilling  but it does the job.I had to do this pretty much straight away, as I was getting headaches.

ahhhh that's better!!!!

It seems quite strange the different types of food, but it's something to do with digestion and these foods work together. But all that matters is it works. The other 4 days of the week, you can eat normal (not over eat) and then do this every the other remaining three days. :)

It's especially good if you have a party or a holiday and you just want to shed a couple pounds. Try it an see what you think?

  1. Gosh, this is so strict! I think Jade could hack it but I'd probably faint if I ate so little. You're such a trooper, glad it worked for you!

    Tara xo

  2. haha, thanks... it was horrific, but does work... I've been doing it for the last couple of weeks, combined with the gym and i'm feeling much better!

  3. Good to know that u tried Military Diet and found some good results. Well it is recommend to follow the intake of calories even after diet if not you will regain your weight back.
