Just heard of this recently and was wondering if anyone has tried it? And if so what kind of results were achieved?

Never had SOS in the Marine Corps.

I have no idea what a "military diet" is although I'm sure someone invented a gimmick and called it that. I would be very suspicious and if they are selling anything run like hell.

This is the link to the diet, its only a 3day diet and it includes ice cream! I guess it's sort of like the intermittent fasting or the same idea as the 5-2 diet , id love to chat to someone who's tried it though!

I just looked at the plan and it looks interesting... I might give it a try. I bet it would work if you can stick to it!

TO me, the food they suggest looks endlessly boring. I don't see much protein for the mornings either.
I'd much rather to think before I eat, count my calories and do right.

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!

It's a temporary crash diet for people who need to meet a weight goal. It's not part of a program to achieve real long-term weight loss. In fact, it will probably set you back.

I can't speak for Soldiers but in the Marine Corps if you're over weight you spend your lunch time at the gym running stairs (not voluntarily). If you still don't lose that weight you are medically discharged.

The fact that it advertises "no need to do strenuous exercise" should tell you something.
