What’s the craziest diet you’ve ever tried?! TBH I have a couple, but there’s on…

What’s the craziest diet you’ve ever tried?! TBH I have a couple, but there’s one that really takes the cake… it’s called the 3 Day Military Diet and you eat prescribed meals involving things like canned tuna, cottage cheese, hot dogs and saltine crackers. Oh, and 1 cup of ice cream every night. The ice cream part sold me… I mean, how could a diet with ice cream be so bad?! 🍦
But honestly it was the worst experience I’ve ever willingly put myself through. Not only was it super restrictive and weird (hot dogs, WTH?!?), but by the third day I was basically on house arrest because everything inside of me was coming out and I had to be within a few feet of the toilet or I’d risk pooing my pants. This didn’t happen, thankfully.
I was in England for the summer with my BFF and while she was out having fun on the beach, I had to stay at the house. She and I laughed about the whole thing at the time, but looking back on it now it makes me so sad that I felt like I needed to diet during what should have been a carefree summer in another country.
I honestly don’t remember if I made it through the full 3 days of the diet or even if I lost weight, I just remember it being a real low point in my journey. 😔
Thankfully, over the years I’ve learned that diets DON’T work. Through EBF, my goal is to prove that you can live a healthy and happy, balanced life without dieting or focusing on your weight all the time. My motto: healthy habits > dieting! 👏

  • I do need to lose weight and I know it, but when I have gone to the doctor lately for my foot.. what they put on my paperwork is that patient is over weight. I really wish there was a better way to say it without making me feel bad…and just about every nurse that comes in is over weight too. I wish instead I could just have helpful conversations about what I might be doing wrong when I know I’ve cut down and I know I need to excerice but that has been a problem for 7 months with trying to heel from broken bones in my left foot. Trying to get better but its seems to be a slow process! Yes, I wish I could just snap my fingers and be the right weight. A little miracle pill that’s not dangerous or habit forming or with side effects would be great but I dislike any medicine or pills so that’s not really what I want. ☺😊💕

  • Haha that sounds like a wild diet… I’ve never done any specific diets, but used to cut out lots of carbs
