Military Style

As you know, I am in the process of losing weight. My husband and I are taking the journey together. I have lost a total of 15 pounds thus far and have a goal to lose 10 more pounds over the next 6 weeks. Whenever we make changes to our diet, we try to remain true to eating clean.

We have decided to try the Military Diet which is essentially high protein, low carb. The diet works as 3 days on and 4 days off. On the off days, we will continue with simple clean eating meals. For more information, visit the link within this post and check out the graphic for an easy to follow meal plan.

We already had some items on hand and we plan to do the diet for two weeks so this was our

Military Diet Shopping List:

2 Grapefruits
4 Bananas
Whole Grain Bread
Eggs
6 Cans Tuna
Hot Dogs (all beef)
Lunch Meat from the Deli
Green Beans
2 Heads of Broccoli
Carrots
Saltine Crackers
Cottage Cheese
Cheddar Cheese
Vanilla Ice Cream

I will continue to share our progress. I am looking into more recipes, ingredients to have on hand, and easily portable clean snacks. Any brands or favorite product suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks for following the journey. Health and happiness!
