Royal Marine Commando Egg Diet
The so-called “Royal Marine Diet” is a super-low calorie, low sugar diet that involves mostly eating eggs. It is a sure way to lose fat quickly. Marines would find it tough enough, for civilians it is one of the hardest crash diets. The results are usually good though. Eggs are certainly not the only thing eaten (although this has not stopped it getting the name “boiled egg diet”!), so read on to learn how to do this diet properly!
Do not attempt the marine diet long term, one week is enough, some people repeat this for a second week (which is why some people call it a two week egg diet). Like all crash diets the first couple of days are the hardest.
Before you read on, please read this important messages from the Royal Marines:
“We (Royal Marine Commando) do NOT endorse this diet. Anyone linking this diet to Royal Marine training or preparation for Royal Marines training are being misled. We recommend a healthy balanced diet. RM Recruits are fed 4 meals a day which consists of a balance of protein, carbs, veg and fruit.”
It is unclear how this diet got its name, but all it really is, is an egg fast, or egg-based VLCD. Fasting is a very effective way to lose weight, and many readers have used it to lose belly fat.
Marine commando 7 day egg diet
You can have your eggs anyway you fancy, so long as you do not fry them on loads of butter or oil. In the egg diet, boiled eggs are the preferred way though because not additional calories are added.
You have three “meals” a day at the normal time for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With each meal you can have either black coffee, pure lemon juice or water.
