Hey Guys ^_^Here's my first diet post for you all (though I don't post much anyways haha!)
Who hasn't heard of this so called Military Diet by now? It claims "You can lose up to 10 pounds per week on the Military Diet without strenuous exercise or prescriptions" - Renee, Military Diet Plan (HELL YEAH! SIGN ME UP! :P) which I saw circling around the net and apparently been around for quite some time now.
Naturally I was very interested, seeing it's Summer and still pretty hot in the UK.. Who doesn't want that HOT, SLIM BOD? We had WEEKS of heat wave ~_~" Mini droplets of sweat are appearing around my hairline as I type this haha!
A little info about this diet:

A lil about me:
- Height: 5' 4" / 162 cm
- Weight: 9 st 10 pounds / 136 lbs / 61.7 kg
- I'm anaemic - therefore tend to eat quite a bit of meat as I lose energy quickly :P
- I'm a huge snacker! I am forever snacking in-between meals xD Crisps+Chocolate is kryptonite!
- I have a petite frame being Chinese therefore am actually pretty chubby for my height even though BMI states i'm in "healthy" range.
- I gain and lose weight rather quickly >:P Weird metabolism I have.
- My goal is to drop down to 8 st if possible ^__^ I gained too much during uni :P
To maximise results, I plan on doing at least 30 mins of cardio per day :) Lets hope I stick to it! xDD
DAY ONE: BREAKFAST
- Cup of tea with a splash of skimmed milk
- Small slice of whole grain toast
- 2 tbs of peanut butter (crunchy)
- 1/2 Grapefruit
Thoughts: Very excited to start this diet ;P Haha! Having quite high hopes due to the claim but we'll see how this goes at the end ^^ Well, I was pretty satisfied after the peanut butter toast and tea and didn't really feel like eating the grapefruit at all. So, I used the grapefruit as an in-between breakfast-lunch snack instead :) So far so good ^^
Mood: Happy and optimistic. Full of energy.
Hunger: Satisfied so far. Could be because I'm not a fan of eating breakfast though :P
DAY ONE: LUNCH
- Slice of whole grain toast
- 1/2 can of tuna
- Cup of tea with skimmed milk
Thoughts: I actually forgot to eat this at an earlier time, only when my tummy rumbled and I looked at the clock had 6 hours has passed since breakfast O_O Like woah! This means, the grape fruit from breakfast as a snack kept me going :P SUPER FRUIT! ^_^
Mood: Im starting to feel a bit less energetic and getting slight thumping in the head, probably due to the fact I just totally FORGOT to eat o_O"... Still full of energy.
Hunger: Though my mind is feeling a bit weak and my tummy is rumbling, I don't feel to hungry :P And I LOVE LOVE tunaaa! Mmmm! :')
DAY ONE: DINNER
- 3 Ounces of chicken (stir fried with a touch of olive oil + a pinch of salt)
(3 ounces is equivalent to a deck of cards)
- 1/2 cup green beans
- 1 cup vanilla ice cream
- 1 small apple
- 1/2 banana
Thoughts: Thought this meal was a bit too large to be eaten all in one go, so saved the apple for later :) For someone who eats chicken in EVERY meal - yup every meal! It felt SO good to have that little bit of meat again ^^ Savoured every last bite haha! Mmm! The green beans as described in the photo turned out to be pea pods =.=" Damn. Bought the wrong veggie bag without reading xDD Lesson learnt! I felt that 1 cup of ice cream was a bit much for me - its still swirling and smushing about in my tummy now :(
Mood: Still feeling pretty positive but by this point feeling tired :( My body's not used to not having my asian rice haha! So lacking carbs pretty much :P Lacking energy.
Hunger: Got extremely hungry at this stage so gobbled the whole thing apart from the apple as I was stuffed by that point :PP This has got to be the most filling meal out of Day 1 :D
OK, Day One COMPLETE! WHOO!
Stay tuned for tomorrows post and see how I get on ^__^v
