Keeping Hydrated:
You can’t drink coffee or tea alone during this three day diet. You can drink as much water as you can but avoid drinks with high calorie or sugar. You can also drink caffeine free tea, but avoid using sugar and use approved artificial sweeteners like Stevia. For the coffee lovers,a cup of coffee a day may cause you to have caffeine withdrawal and cause headaches and exhaustion. Avoid this by sneaking in a cup of coffee or two, without creamer or sugar. A cup of black coffee equals to only 5 calories or less. For each coffee you drink you have to deduct the calories to your meals.  Ex: 3 cups of coffee = One fourth apple, Instead of eating a whole apple you remove one fourth of the apple from your meal plan to compensate for the cup of coffee. That’s just an example though.

You can’t substitute just any ingredients, this meal plan was created to balance out chemicals that help weight loss. Altering the balance can defeat the purpose of the whole meal plan.

The Military diet works because it is low calorie and works as a form of intermittent fasting. This type of fasting alters the body’s system. It helps increase metabolism and lower the risk of diabetes.  The combination of each chemical boosts metabolism and improve nutrient absorption. Even though this diet is considered somewhat of a fasting, your body will not go into starvation mode. With this diet you get the needed nutrition in your body with minimal calorie intake.
