Military Diet Calorie Count

Military Diet Calories

The Military Diet is low calorie, but not so low that you can't function.

Below is a list of each food in the diet and exactly how many calories you will get from each food.​

The 3 day military diet is beautiful in its simplicity.  You follow the meals, don’t cheat, and you lose weight.  It really is that simple.  The meals are balanced with the proper nutrition that one needs throughout the day.  There is no feeling groggy, lightheaded, or spacey because you are eating.  And you are eating throughout the day.  The military diet calories are low enough throughout the diet that you lose weight but not so low that you can’t function.  Below is a list of all the military diet calories and how many calories you get from each food.

The Military Diet is Balanced

Nutrition is basically made up of the following:

  • Carbohydrates
  • Proteins
  • Fats
  • Fiber
  • Water
  • Minerals
  • Vitamins

 

When not on a diet it is important try and get a healthy mix of all of the above. When on the military diet you will restrict calories from some of all the 7 nutritional categories but the diet takes the highest swipe at carbohydrates.

It is important to eat the foods on the diet.  We recommend that you stay away from substitutions but they are there if you need them.  It isn’t necessarily a calorie for calories substitution because not all calories are made equally.  The military diet calories are derived from foods that give you a balanced diet.  We hear a lot of about how you shouldn’t be eating hot dogs or ice cream ever.  But that simply isn’t the case.  Hot dogs and ice cream are great when used in moderation.  If you ate 2000 calories a day of nothing but ice cream and hot dogs then we would have a problem.  But a couple of hot dogs with no buns and 2 1/2 cups of ice cream spread throughout the 3 day military diet is great.

Of course we know that not all calories are equal. If diets were just about counting calories then there would be a lot more sucessful dieters in the world.  And it would be great if everything we did burned calories from fat.  Once again that is a myth. The body does burn calories from fat but not always.  The body can burn stored calories from fat.  But it also can use from available carbohydrates or even proteins.  It is a good idea to recognize how many calories you are putting in your body but it rarely is a long-term solution. Most want to know the military diet calories so they can cut back even further.  We recommend against this.
