GM Diet

In an effort to lose some weight, I have finally made up my mind to go for the GM diet. I intend to lose around 15 kilos (approximately 33 pounds). My current weight is 106 kilos (approximately 233 pounds) and I intend to get to 90 kilos (200 pounds). I am taking this up as a challenge and hence I am documenting it as well. The Intention is to keep me motivated and to inspire a few people along the way.

The GM diet is a strict regimen of eating a group of food a day. Since I have a cook who can help me with the food and keep them ready, it’s a good time for me to give it a try. I shall be following the diet plan with daily updates so that the readers can hear it from the horse’s mouth. I also want to challenge myself to do it. To be honest, I have tried it before and have never been able to go beyond the 3rd or the 4th day.

The GM diet.

As the name suggests, yes – it is a General Motors diet plan. General Motors developed it for its employees to keep them healthy. It was also said to have been endorsed and tested by Johns Hopkins Research Centre before being rolled out for its employees. It is a strict 7 days weight loss plan that promises to shred 5 to 7 kilos by the end of the week. So, I guess If I can do this for 5 weeks then I should be able to achieve my target weight. It is recommended though that after each cycle, you go back to a normal, low carbohydrate, and high protein diet. If you intend to take this up and if you have any underlying conditions, make sure you consult a medical practitioner before you do that.

Day 1

Day 1 is fruits day. No quantity specified but no bananas. Melons as much as you can eat. And lots of water to flush out toxins from your body. Apples, guavas, papaya, Musk melon (I hate them), watermelons, grapes, and coconut water are part of the right options.

Day 2

Vegetable day. Breakfast can include boiled potatoes. Advisable to avoid potatoes for the rest of the day, corn, carrots, and green peas. Vegetables can either be just boiled or can be tossed in very little oil, ghee, or butter.

Day 3

Vegetable and fruits day. All you can eat. The exception list includes bananas in fruits, corn, carrots, green peas, and no potatoes as well on Day 3. Fresh salads and fruit are all that you can eat. Keep the stomach full. One thing to be ensured throughout this diet is to drink lots and lots of water.

Day 4

That’s a Banana and milk day. Bananas are heavy on the digestive system and keep the stomach full for a long time. 6 to 8 bananas on the 4th day along with 4 to 5 glasses of low fat or skimmed milk. Water as much as you can drink.

Day 5

This day you can have two portions of 284 grams each of beef, chicken, or fish. Vegetarians can replace meat with cottage cheese or brown rice. It could be substituted with eggs as well. 6 tomatoes is also what we are allowed to eat on the 5th day. Not to forget, as much water as we can.

Day 6

On the sixth day, once again, you can have two portions of 284 grams each of beef, chicken, or fish. Vegetarians can replace meat with cottage cheese or brown rice. With that, you can add an unlimited amount of vegetables.

Day 7

Rice, fruits, and vegetable is the order of the day. Rice in minimum quantity although it does not specify the amount. The vegetable can be eaten as much as one desires. No potatoes and bananas once again.
