    General Motors Diet

    General Motors Diet

    GM Diet Day 1


    The GM diet is a seven-day weight loss management plan that consists mainly of selected fruits and vegetables, and strict amounts of meat. It can be a difficult diet to follow especially since it relies mainly on foods that are high in fiber and less in protein, fat and carbohydrates. At the same time however, this diet plan can be used for fast-paced weight loss regimens, with up to 10 lbs. lost after successfully completing one diet week.
    Preparing the Body for GM Diet

    On the first day of the GM diet, followers are only allowed to eat fruits. These fresh produce should contain no form of starch, potassium and carbohydrates, such as bananas. This is because on the first day of this diet plan, the body is subject to detoxification. Only fruits and water can be consumed.

    Persons who are planning to start the GM diet may consume starchy foods such as potatoes, oats and bananas the day before their targeted week, so that they would be packed with enough energy to last for the next morning. They should also practice drinking lots of water, so that they will not be dehydrated in the succeeding days.

    Aside from preparing the body for the diet plan, physical activities should also be set into rather lighter tasks. Warm-up exercises should be performed before and during the diet, just to maintain regular metabolic processes and not feel the fatigue. Through exercise, the body system becomes resilient to the side effects of GM diet, and rather gives way for the detoxification and weight reduction results.
    Day 1 GM Diet Breakfast

    The first important meal of the day in a GM diet regimen is breakfast. Followers may observe a full breakfast consisting mainly of fruits such as melons and papaya together with 1-2 glasses of water. These fruits easily make the stomach full, and at the same time the sweet tooth satisfied, thus craving for more tempting meals such as pizza and pasta can be avoided.
    Day 1 GM Diet Lunch

    Lunch may consist of watery fruits such as apples or watermelons. Lunch time is observed at 12:00 noon to 1:30 in the afternoon. Consuming a bowl of apples or two cups of watermelons can already make the stomach full. Other fruits such as kiwi and mangoes can as well be served.
    Day 1 GM Diet Dinner

    During dinner, followers may return to melons, kiwi and oranges, as well as 1-2 glasses of water. Melons can be heavy on the stomach; hence only a half-bowl serving should be consumed in order not to have a cramped stomach later at night.
    Midday Meals and Beverages

    While the main beverage allowed for the Day 1 of GM diet is water, followers may also turn to fresh orange juice and coconut water during midday snacks. Orange juice fills in the cravings for sweets, while coconut water keeps the stomach full the rest of the day.
    Midday meals still consist of fruits, but at varying kinds and servings, so followers can still maintain a good appetite during full meal times. Raisins, oranges, and apple dices can be consumed during mid-mornings and afternoons.
    Sample GM Diet Day 1 Plan

    Breakfast (8:30 AM-9:00 AM)
    1 cup of diced apples and 1-2 glasses of water

    Mid morning Snack (10:30 AM-11:00 AM)
    1 bowl raw papaya and 1-2 glasses of water

    Lunch (12:00 PM-1:30 PM)
    1 bowl of watermelon or muskmelon and 1-2 glasses of water

    Afternoon Snack (4:00-4:30 PM)
    1 orange/sweet lime/chico fruit and 2 glasses of water

    Evening (6:00-6:30 PM)
    1 glass coconut water

    Dinner (8:00-9:00 PM)
    1 bowl of melon and 2 glasses of water

    Re: General Motors Diet

    GM Diet Day 2


    Like the first day of the GM diet weight loss plan, the second day would entail another adjustment for the individual in terms of food intake. The first day of the diet plan required a strict fruit-only diet, while the second day would be limited only to vegetables.
    All sorts of vegetables may be consumed on the Day 2 of the GM diet, and these range from green leafy vegetables, cabbage, peppers, onions, etc. This is to boost the fiber intake of the body while regulating the sugar content from the first day’s consumption, and at the same time foster metabolic processes.
    Preparing the Body for Day 2

    Unlike in Day 1 in which followers would feel a bit lightheaded due to the lack of carbohydrate intake and continuous consumption of fluids, Day 2 would dwell more on foods that can be easily digested by the gastrointestinal tract.

    To prepare for the second day of the diet week, followers should eat a full dinner consisting of heavier fruits such as melons, as they will be using supplemental fiber content the next day. Drinking as much as 10 glasses of water on Day 1 will also bring good effects on Day 2, as followers get to feel more relaxed and at ease with the diet.

    Unlike in day one where bananas are restricted from being consumed, in Day 2 all vegetables can be eaten, including those that are high in starch, such as potatoes. This routine would also give more energy for the day, and followers would be more capable of doing more strenuous activities and exercises.
    GM Diet Day 2 Breakfast

    Day 2 of the GM diet may start off with large baked potato with a pat of butter, ghee or olive oil on top. It is important to keep the stomach heavy during breakfast as this would keep the body energized the rest of the day. To those living in tropical countries, cassava or sweet potato may be used instead of the regular potato, as long as there is no sugar added to the meal.
    GM Diet Day 2 Lunch

    During lunchtime, foods that can be consumed must be lighter, and these may involve vegetable salads with lettuce, cucumber and cabbage. Salads may be dressed with vinaigrette or olive oil, but not mayonnaise.
    GM Diet Day 2 Dinner

    Dinner on Day 2 may consist of other fresh greens, such as broccoli, asparagus, as well as cabbages, lettuce and cucumber. Boiled beets also prove to be good meals, but they tend to be heavier on the stomach.
    GM Diet Day 2 Midday Snacks and Beverages

    When it comes to snacks and beverages, GM diet experts recommend leafy greens such as boiled cabbage or fresh lettuce in order to maintain a light stomach. Continuous water intake should be observed to keep the body hydrated. Cherry tomatoes may also be served during midday snacks, especially in afternoons as they are able to satisfy one’s sweet tooth cravings.
    Sample Diet Plan for Day 2 of GM Diet

    Breakfast (8:00-9:00 AM)
    1 cup boiled potato (with ghee, olive oil or butter) and 2 glasses of water

    Mid Morning (10:30-11:00 AM)
    1 bowl of cabbage or red lettuce (raw) and 1-2 glasses of water

    Lunch (12:00-1:00 PM)
    1 cucumber, 1 tomato and ˝ boiled beet and 2 glasses of water

    Afternoon (4:00-5:00 PM)
    2 tomatoes or 1 cup cherry tomatoes and 2 glasses of water

    Dinner (7:00-8:00 PM)
    Boiled broccoli, cauliflower and asparagus with salt and spices and 2 glasses of water

There is no limit or restriction to the fruits and vegetables to be consumed on Day 3, although bananas are still not allowed.

    Preparing for Day 3 isn’t as difficult as that in days 1 and 2; it actually easier to keep up with the dietary requirements in Day 3 as the body is already used to fruit and vegetable intake.

    GM Diet Day 3 Lunch

    GM Diet Day 3 Midday Snacks and Beverages

    A combination of tomatoes, fresh greens, and different fruits may be consumed all day. Fresh juices such derived from berries, oranges and lemons would be ideal to those who are not into drinking water, although these should be as well consumed in proportional amounts to avoid bloating.

    Vegetable juice like carrot and tomato juice may be served during evenings so as to satiate the appetite for sweet snacks.
    Sample GM Diet Day 3 Diet Plan

    Breakfast (8:00-9:00 AM)
    1 apple and 1-2 glasses of water or 1 cup of diced melon and 2 glasses of water

    Re: General Motors Diet

    GM Diet Day 4

    The fourth day of the GM diet weight loss program is filled with surprises. Unlike the past three days where you are only allowed to consume fruits and vegetables, Day 4 offers three unlikely meals: bananas, milk and soup. For our full coverage of the GM Diet plan so far, read day 1, day 2 and day 3 before you continue with this article.
    Day 4 can be quite boring at first glance as these are the only meals allowed for consumption but remember that by now your body has already adjusted to the big change in diet and is slowly getting used to the new dietary content.

    By Day 4 the body has already garnered sufficient amounts of sweets from fruits, and at the same time fiber from vegetables. Since it already has a sustained appetite, it would no longer be responsive to the taste of bananas. Persons who have reached Day 4 would rely more on liquids, and they get their energy from milk shakes and soup.
    Preparing the Body for Day 4

    Preparing for Day 4 is the easiest. Since the day offers only the said three meals, followers might just as well make themselves busy with various physical activities. They already have packed energy for the day, and they might just as well be productive by working out, or engaging in different leisure events.

    Most people feel different by day 4. By this stage, a livelier attitude towards life is what most people feel. By Day 4 followers of the diet have already gone through natural detoxifying processes, and they are found to be more cheerful and enthusiastic when it comes to performing physical activities.
    GM Diet Day 4 Breakfast

    The best way to start Day 4 is by consuming a banana paired with a glass of warm milk (almond milk or a very lite coconut milk will be fine as well). Some followers prefer a bowl of sliced bananas on milk like those in breakfast cereals, only without the cereal content.
    Skim milk should be used all day in this stage; full milk proves to be heavy on the stomach and filled with unnecessary nutrients that are not beneficial to the weight loss regimen.
    GM Diet Day 4 Lunch

    Lunch served in Day 4 consists of a bowl of vegetable soup. Most soup bowls consist of various vegetable produce flavored with herbs and spices. Best vegetable soups that can be served during lunch include tomato soup and cabbage stew, as they are packed with natural flavors that the taste buds would savor even as the day ends.
    GM Diet Day 4 Dinner

    Dinner in Day 4 may consist of a serving of vegetable soup and banana shake. This can be quite heavy to handle later at night, so followers may forego the shake and focus on the soup, as this alone can keep them full until the next morning.
    GM Diet Day 4 Midday Snacks and Beverages

    In Day 4, the only recommended snacks would be bananas and milk, which can be served in cold banana shakes. These snacks prove to be essential as they taste naturally delightful and at the same time are a popular drink even in conventional beverages.
    Recipes for GM Diet Day 4

    Cabbage Soup recipe for Day 4

    Ingredients:
    · 1 cup shredded cabbage
    · 1 cup sliced celery
    · 1 onion, minced
    · 2 sliced green peppers

    Procedure:
    Boil onion, peppers, cabbage and celery in water together with salt, pepper and herbs for flavoring. Any flavoring may be used as long as there is no fat included. Extra vegetables may be added except for beans as they add extra calories. Serve hot.

    Banana Shake Recipe for Day 4

    Ingredients:
    · 2 bananas, sliced
    · 2 glasses skim milk (almond milk or a very lite coconut milk will be fine as well)
    · 2 glasses crushed ice
    Procedure:
    In a blender, mix all ingredients until a creamy, frothy shake is formed. No sugar is required as the flavor is already naturally sweet. Serves 2.

    Re: General Motors Diet

    GM Diet Day 5

    Continuing on with our series on GM Diet. You can find day 1, day 2, day 3, day 4 here. On the fifth day of the GM diet weight loss routine, followers of the diet are now allowed to eat beef matched with tomatoes (5 to 6 large tomatoes should be good for the day). On this day the body’s protein requirements are addressed, but not to the extent that they will be followed up with fat. Beef is used in this case as it is rich source of protein and fiber, and it does not have to be consumed in large amounts just to fulfill the cravings of one’s appetite.
    Preparing yourself for Day 5 of GM Diet

    When on Day 4 followers of the GM diet are allowed to consume bananas, milk and soup, on Day 5 they will be subject to only beef and tomatoes. They loss of appetite will continue to be felt on this day, and it is no longer a surprise for them to eat only sufficient portions of been and not gore over it like before.
    Due to the lack of appetite for most foods, it is important to have just small servings of beef during meals. Large servings may only make the appetite worse, and this may as well continue for the next few days. It is thus best to serve the beef with good amounts of tomatoes so that the taste buds will be brought back to life.
    GM Diet Day 5 Breakfast

    Breakfast may start with braised beef and soup. This will keep the stomach heavy and full for most of the day. The soup provides energy, while the meat becomes a source of protein, iron and fiber. It can be a bit boring to eat beef but it may be paired with a sliced tomato.
    GM Diet Day 5 Lunch

    A hamburger patty (no bread!!!) may be consumed during lunch time together with tomatoes. The hamburger (no bread!!!) may be baked or fried but not in too much fat, as it already contains its own fat material. Since the body will be producing extra uric acid, it is likewise recommended to drink extra glasses of water to flush the urine out naturally.
    GM Diet Day 5 Dinner

    Another hamburger (no bread!!!) may be eaten by dinner, although health experts recommend beef soup and tomatoes so that the body would feel more energized. The soup also supplements the water lost during the day.
    GM Diet Day 5 Midday Snacks and Beverages

    During Day 5, the only beverage allowed to be consumed is water, and not juice. It is because the body has already been given doses of juice for the past three days, and water helps a lot in flushing out the excesses for Day 5. Drink up to 14 glasses of water on this day so that the body system will be detoxified and get rid of unnecessary nutrients provided by the meat.
    Recipes for GM Diet Day 5

    Below are a couple of recipes for you to use when you are on day 5. These recipes are really easy to prepare and should not take you very long.
    Grilled Beef Slices
    Ingredients:
    · 1 cup beef tenderloin strips
    · 1 lemon zest
    · Salt and pepper
    · Coriander
    Procedure:
    Season the meat with lemon zest, salt, pepper and coriander and rest for 10 minutes. On a hot grill place tenderloin strips and until golden brown. Serve with sliced tomatoes.
    Beef Burger
    · 1 1/8 pound beef patty
    · Salt and pepper
    Procedure:
    Rub beef patty with salt and pepper then place on a hot grill. Occasionally baste with a slab of butter until patty becomes tender and reddish brown. Serve with tomatoes and cucumbers.

    GM Diet Day 6

    If you have been following the 7 day GM Diet then take heart in the fact that you are almost done with the diet. You can read about the previous 5 days here – Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4 and finallyDay 5.
    On Day 6 of the GM diet, foods served will not only include beef but a wide variety of vegetables as well. This is also considered a feast day or a cheat day for GM diet followers as they can eat all the beef and vegetables they want. It is also great to eat on this day as the body is slowly gaining back its appetite but in a rather fructose craving mode, thus it would yearn for fresh greens.

    On this day there would already be changes on how the way one looks as compared to the past days. Followers of the diet are expected to have lost as much as 10 lbs. from the past few days of dieting. Because of the previous fruit-vegetable consumption a different glow in the skin can also be seen.
    Preparing for Day 6 of the GM Diet

    On day 6 the body is already in a continuous process of losing the extra fat through increased metabolic processes. Thus there will be more need for beef for protein and muscle development, and fiber from vegetables to keep the body energized during the day. Those who are currently in Day 6 should take advantage of the moment and pursue lively activities, as this is where they can test the effects the diet has made to their immune system.
    GM Diet Day 6 Breakfast

    Breakfast on Day 6 may be started off with a bowl of mixed vegetables. These vegetables may be sauteed or stewed, so that they would have a more tender bite and taste. Having a bowl of vegetable soup with beef cutlets is likewise recommended, as this would keep the stomach satiated throughout the rest of the day.
    GM Diet Day 6 Lunch

    During lunchtime, any form of mixed vegetables and beef may be eaten. Asian-style cooking is the best in this mealtime, as dishes under this cuisine consist mainly of beef and vegetables. A bowl of beef and broccoli may sound ideal for Western diet followers, but as much as possible do not include potatoes or bread.
    GM Diet Day 6 Dinner

    Dinner may be served with vegetable soup and a hamburger (MEAT ONLY!!! NO BREAD!!!), especially when the follower has gone through a long and tiring day. The soup will light up the senses and replenish the lost energy, while the beef content brings back the protein, iron and fiber lost.
    GM Diet Day 6 Midday Snacks and Beverages

    Beef and vegetables may continue to be eaten during snacks, although it is recommended to munch on the greens during mid-mornings and beef during afternoons. This is because the appetite has to be contained at normal levels, so as the appetite would not crave for other types of food.
    Water is still the best beverage on Day 6. Water keeps the lost sweat replenished and the senses rejuvenated. Coconut water may be taken during afternoons, but this may create bloating and loss of appetite by dinner.
    GM Diet Day 6 Recipes

    Beef and Vegetable Kebab
    Ingredients:
    · 1 broccoli
    · 1 red tomato
    · 1 yellow bell pepper
    · 6 beef cubes
    · 1 onion
    Procedure:
    Cut all the vegetables into quarters and skew them on barbecue sticks together with 2-3 beef cubes per stick. Baste with butter and season with salt and pepper then grill on open fire until beef is tender. Makes 3 servings.

    Re: General Motors Diet

    GM Diet Day 7

    Day 7, the last day of the GM Diet. If you’ve made it this far then you would have seen significant weight loss and additionally will be feeling and looking great not to mention more active. For those looking to start the GM Diet, here is the detailed diet plan sorted by day – Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5 and Day 6.

    On the last day of the GM diet weight loss management plan, food servings vary. While no beef or other types of meat may be consumed, followers of the GM Diet are now allowed to eat starch in the form of brown rice. At the same time, the diet goes back to fruit and vegetables, which can be easier to eat as compared to Days 1 to 3.
    By Day 7, significant changes can now be found in your body. A slimmer appearance is now seen and felt while a more positive outlook is observed thanks to the continuous cleansing methods of the diet taking place inside the body. Regular sleeping habits may as well be noticed as the diet schedule gets the body tired by the end of the day and energized the next morning.
    Preparing for Day 7 of GM Diet

    When preparing for Day 7, it is important to fresh fruits stacked. Fruits will be consumed at all times of the day, from breakfast to snacks and dinner. Vegetables may be boiled or stewed and paired with white or brown rice.

    There are some individuals who tend to avoid brown rice servings as brown rice does not appeal to their taste buds but it is important to have a cup or two in order to keep the energy and fiber contents levels high. However technically white rice is better like a Basmati or Jasmine. Brown rice can tend to have anti-nutrients.
    GM Diet Day 7 Breakfast

    A bowl of white or brown rice may be served during breakfast. It is best to consume rice in the morning as it would provide all the energy and carbohydrate requirements for the rest of the day. To those who want to save the rice for lunch, they may eat a slice of papaya or melon followed by 1-2 glasses of water.
    GM Diet Day 7 Lunch

    During lunchtime, a bowl of white or brown rice may be matched with cooked vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli and asparagus. This can be a boring meal so it has to be followed up with a slice of mango or watermelon to keep the appetite satisfied.
    GM Diet Day 7 Dinner

    Day 7 ends with yet another bowl of greens and white or brown rice. However, most followers prefer to only have vegetables as they don’t want to feel bloated at night. Rice can be heavy for dinner, so as much as possible increased fluid intake should be observed.
    GM Diet Day 7 Midday Snacks and Beverages

    Midday snacks should consist of fruits, mainly berries. Other fruits can prove to be a great snack especially during mornings, while strawberries (without cream) may be ideal for afternoons and after-dinners. Water should be consumed at 10-12 glasses, but at the same time fruit juice can be taken during midday snacks.

    Re: General Motors Diet

    GM Diet Indian Version


    The GM diet is among the most popular diet fads practiced by Indians mainly because of its vegetarian attributes and reduced consumption of meat. This weight loss management system also appeals to Indian delicacies that dwell mainly with vegetables. Women in India find this diet system to be helpful since it allows them to shed off their excess pounds and enjoy a long term weight profile without undergoing major alterations in their current food intake.

    The Indian version of the GM diet does not vary too much from that of the regular version except for the beef intake in Days 5 and 6. For the Indian version, cottage cheese can be used as an alternate to beef. Thus for diet, cottage cheese is served as a substitute to beef and this works very well. For folks that are not vegetarian and who eat fish, fish can be a great alternate to meat and can be used in meals and diet plan schedule.
    Beef Substitutes

    Aside from beef, there are also other foods that rich in iron and protein, such as red kidney beans, lentils or low fat Paneer. Spinach and bean sprouts, as well as soybean curd or tofu and 1 cup brown or white rice may be used to replace beef in Days 5 and 6. Any BEEF REPLACEMENT should have some good fat, curd will have fat, or you can add some olive oil, ghee, coconut oil or butter.
    GM Diet Indian Version

    The Indian version of the GM diet is pretty close to the original. There are slight changes and they are described below.

    · Day 1. All fruits. All kinds of fruit may be consumed except for bananas. 10-12 glasses of water should be consumed throughout the day.
    · Day 2. All vegetables. All sorts of vegetables may be consumed during the second day. Potatoes may be served during breakfast to boost energy levels and needs some good fat like ghee or olive oil. A mixture of greens and boiled vegetables as well as the GM diet wonder soup may be served during lunch and dinner.

    · Day 3. Mixture of fruits and vegetables. A mix of fruits and vegetables may be consumed on Day 3, together with 10-12 glasses of water. Bananas are still not allowed in this day.

    · Day 4. Banana and milk. Skim milk and banana, together with the GM wonder soup or any type of vegetable soup may be served on this day. For Indian practitioners, yogurt may be served instead of skim milk.

    · Day 5. Brown rice, curd and tomatoes. Soybean curd or 1 cup of brown rice may be used as a substitute for beef, or a cup of cottage cheese. Tomatoes are important to match with the day’s meal, along with cucumbers.

    · Day 6. Brown/White rice and vegetables. On Day 6, brown/white rice or other beef substitute will be matched with vegetables, but potatoes are still restricted. It is best to consume cottage cheese and soybean curd in vegetable bowls.

    · Day 7. Brown/White rice, vegetables and fruits. Two cups of brown/white rice may be consumed together with unlimited servings of vegetables and fruits. Fruit juice may also be taken along with 8-10 glasses of water.
