Benefits of Military Diet

  • Military diet is low in calories. When you have body fat, it is actually stored calories. So, whenever you overeat something or not doing enough exercise, the body converts unused calories to fat. Eating less or exercising more creates energy (calorie) deficit in your body. As a result, the body makes up the energy shortage from the stored body fat. Military diet is low in calories and pushes the body to resort to use stored fat for energy. In the process, the body loses weight.
  • Military diet brings in the benefit of intermittent fasting. This kind of fasting is popular and effective as it involves periods of fasting with periods of eating. When there is a period of fasting, it increases the insulin sensitivity. As a result, when you eat something, the nutrients from foods are directed into your body muscles and liver cells. In addition, the nutrients are kept away from reaching fat cells.
  • Military diet is designed to maximize body’s metabolism rate. Metabolism rate is the number of calories your body burns each day. The higher the rate, the better the fat loss results become. Most of the foods used in military diet have been carefully chosen for their metabolism boosting effects and fat burning properties.
