This is the second time I'm doing the military diet. The first time I did it I lost 7 pounds in three days. I can't drink caffeine and I know that is a huge part of this diet, but I still lost weight. Over the first night I lost 4 pounds. I was thrilled with the results so it encouraged me to keep going. I'm glad to say I don't have much to lose but just wanted to feel less bloated... and this diet worked. The third day is tough and you will be a little hungry but it's worth it because you will feel better. I didn't exercise at all during this diet so I may have had better results if I did. I'm a believer and have told a few friends about it. Good luck everyone. It's only 3 days... try it and stick to it! You get to eat hot dogs and ice cream!
Aaron Bady at The Los Angeles Review of Books argues that Santa Clarita Diet is unconsciously conservative and default pro-Trump because it’s apolitical: “This suburban show wants to exist in a world without politics, without a larger frame of reference than the home life of a suburban family, their suburban neighbors, and their workplace selling suburban homes to other suburban families.” It’s true that in 2018, setting a sitcom in suburbia isn’t likely to be a radical or relevant political statement. But even so, Bady misses the anti-Trump political subtext of making zombies lovable.
