Do you wish to know if the GM Diet really works ? I also wish to know. So, I am going to put myself on GM Diet for 7 days. Let’s find out if it works or not.
I will post my previous day’s Experience and Weight Loss in every post. Let me brief you what GM diet is all about.
GM Diet or General Motors Diet is a weight management program originally designed by the General Motors Corporation for the fitness of its employees. This diet system focuses on the consumption of specific foods per day and lasts for a span of 7 days.
This is a detoxification and very low calorie diet. I am going to do an Indian vegetarian version of this diet for 7 days starting today. Wish me luck :)!
Here is the GM Diet Plan –
Day 1 – All fruits except bananas and 10-12 glasses of water. Water is the Best Friend in this diet !
Day 2 – All vegetables. Breakfast is steamed large size potato with during the second day. The GM diet wonder soup can be taken during lunch and dinner. I will let you know about this soup in the coming posts.
Day 3 – Mixture of fruits and vegetables but no bananas.
Day 4 – Banana and milk. Skim milk and banana, together with the GM wonder soup or any vegetable soup may be served on this day.
Day 5 – Brown rice, curd , cucumber and tomatoes.
Day 6 – Brown rice and vegetables. Day 5 and Day 6 are for Protein and Carbohydrates intake. For non-veggies, white meat is the source of fatless protien or the egg white portion For veggies, source of protein are daal, soya balls, paneer, curd, brown rice.
Day 7 – Brown rice, vegetables and fruits. Two cups of brown rice may be consumed together with unlimited servings of vegetables and fruits.
Side Effects of GM Diet
I have done detox before. So, I know that headaches and weakness are common problems that I would face. This diet is not meant for Pregnant ladies , children and people with medical conditions.
My Expectations from GM Diet
I am expecting 3 kgs weight loss. People generally claim to lose 5-7 kgs of weight. But I am doing it for detox i.e to flush out toxins from my body. I am taking Green Tea all 7 days which is not mentioned in the GM Diet.You can read about its benefits here.
Also, I am not going to skip my iron and Biotin tablets. I am also not compromising on my Breakfast tea since this diet anyway will cause me headache. 1 cup tea is allowed :P. No more cheating , I promise 🙂
Have you tried GM diet before ? Please let us know.
