JACKSON, MS--(Marketwired - October 22, 2016) - Approximately 80 million Americans are obese, with many more overweight and struggling to lose weight, despite serious health issues. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), encouraging Americans to lose weight (or even gain less weight) has been primarily ineffective. Effective weight loss involves using more calories than is intaken. One pound of weight is equivalent to 3,500 calories, so to lose 1-2 pounds per week, one needs to reduce caloric intake by 500-1000 calories per day. This kind of caloric reduction diet, however, can be very risky without doctor-supervision and can be unrealistic for most people to maintain. With the abundance of unsupervised fad diets; unhealthy weight loss practices like skipping meals; over-the-counter "diet pills" unsupported or supervised by a doctor; and lack of a support system, weight loss can become complex.
One of the most popular diets currently in the market is the Military Diet, or the 3 day military diet, which offers a "comprehensive" solution for busy people. It involves a strict diet plan for three days with four days off every week. The military diet has reportedly been effective in helping with short-term weight loss needs, like needing to lose several pounds to fit into a wedding dress. However, when unsupervised by a medical professional, the Military Diet, like any other weight loss plan, can be risky. In addition, dieting extensively for 3 out of 7 days every week doesn't guarantee long-term weight loss or encourage consistently healthy eating habits. It also requires an immense level of discipline, consistency, and self-monitoring, mostly because it is not custom-fitted to individual body types or nutritional needs.
