There is a surprising benefit, however. With the list below, you’ll notice that there is an adequate effort to balance protein, carbohydrates and fats — the three major food groups. Unlike the Keto diet — which eliminates carbohydrates, a major food group — the military diet does place an emphasis on each muscle-building macronutrient. That said, the same ingredients list is far too general. What type of toast? Should you avoid fatty proteins like salmon or steak? Why a cup of ice cream, but not a full banana?

He most likely took additional supplements not directly tied to gaining size such as a multivitamin and fish oil pill.

The amount of weight loss needed to improve your health may be much less than you wish to lose, when you consider how you evaluate your weight. Research has shown that your health can be greatly improved by a loss of 5–10 percent of your starting weight.
