Glimpse of GM diet:
Day 1 : Only fruits, exception of Banana and avocado. Lots of water. No vegetables and milk. Unlimited fruits allowed.Drink only black tea or black coffee without sugar. No fruit juice allowed.
Day 2 : Only Vegetables. Can be taken either raw or steamed. Have one potato in the morning either baked or boiled. No fruits or milk. Unlimited vegetables allowed. Drink only black tea or black coffee without sugar. No fruit juice allowed. Avoid oil. Salt is allowed.
Day 3: Mix of day 1 and day 2. Potato, Banana, Avocado, Milk is restricted. This is as well unlimited. Drink only black tea or black coffee without sugar. No fruit juice allowed. Avoid oil.
Day 4 : up to 6 Banana and skim milk. If full fat milk restrict it to 750ml. No other fruits and vegetables. In between the wonder soup can be had. Drink only black tea or black coffee without sugar. No fruit juice allowed.
Day 5: Lean meats allowed. Since I am a eggitarian I had 1 egg in the morning, and 1 egg in the afternoon. For dinner I had Tofu. You can replace this with Cottage cheese /Paneer. You need to have 6 tomatoes compulsorily. Drink only black tea or black coffee without sugar. No milk or fruits. GM wonder soup can be had. No fruit juice allowed. Avoid oil.
Day 6 : Same as Day 5, but no tomatoes.
Day 7: We can have up to 2 cups of rice. I cooked only 1 1/2 cup which I was unable to finish, you tummy shrinks well by this time. Can have wonder soup, black tea. Any fruits allowed as usual except banana and avocado. Avoid Oil as much as possible. Lots of vegetable recommended. Today we can have fruit juice.
Remember through out to keep yourself hydrated, drink lots of water. Everyday atleast 10 to 12 glasses of water. Workout on alternative days is better. I have some foot problem so I restrained myself to only walking and walked for atleast 1.5 miles everyday from 4th day. First 3 days workout was impossible for me 😛
I am gonna have the dinner for Day 7. It really feels awesome after this diet. I am feeling very energetic and gives a lot of happiness. I am sure to have lost pounds , not sure how much I have check it tomorrow. Will get you guys my picture before and after soon. One thing I realized is not to worry about weight loss, but this have given me more energy and I feel very light. Yes in between I had the thoughts of giving up, but by god’s grace I could make it. Thanks a lot to all my friends who gave me support from day 1.
If anyone would want to go for a detox this is a great way of doing it.

I missed the notification for your reply dear. Sorry for the late reply. Long outing after GM diet? Seriously Malar, I thought without rice/ wheat we will feel tired, my igorance
no issues at all Vidya, You will feel on your toes in the 7th day, extremely light. So going out was good except for the fact that I was very much tempted to have ice cream, coffee, chat. But controlled it with great effort 😛
Great post! Last year I followed this diet and lost 3 Kgs. It is a good way of getting your body light and energetic. Wonder soup is a delicious recipe, can be had even if you are not dieting. I prepare it once in month and enjoy the taste.
Thanks dear, yeah this such a wonderful recipe I am as well planning to prepare it regularly. I need to check how much I lost this is my first time and planning to do it one more time after few weeks.
A lot of great vegetables in there! By the way, what does GM stand for?
GM is General Motors Lori, this company introduced this diet system to their employees for their healthy lifestyle 🙂
Yayyyy 🙂 Congrats… How you going now? You back to normal routine now?
oh yes dear back to normal 🙂 Thanks Charanya…
Wish you a very happy b’day Malar 🙂 Wish you realize all your dreams sooner than you expected.. Wish this day offers you inner peace and pure bliss.. Let it be a well-spent cherishable day with your family..
So happy to see your great progress on diet, Malar.. I have seen your never-give-up attitude in studies and work, now I see it being shown in diet. Very eager to see a transformed Malar.. More than all the weight loss, it is good to be detoxed this way. I hope you skip this day from dieting 🙂
Thanks a lot anna, you know me. If I decide I will never give up fortunately or unfortunately 🙂 Yes anna this is a great detox. One thing important with this diet is do this diet for 7 days and leave a gap of 7 days to start again. So I am on gap 🙂 Thanks for your wonderful wish anna 🙂
Are banana and avocado not fruits? I thought they were! I get confused sometimes, you know. Also, this seems very precise, requiring black tea (no green tea allowed?) and doing only fruits one day, then only veggies the next; what is the rationale for that? It seems like you would need at least a couple days of eating a particular thing for that to work all the way through the GI tract. Again, I am easily confused and certainly not an expert, so just wondering about the rationale. Thanks for such a conscientious and detailed approach! Best,
Totally agree with you, Banana and Avocado are very much fruits which are not allowed, I still don’t know why is that so. Yes we can have green tea or herbal tea as well. Few of my Indian Friends are very particular about having coffee or tea only with milk, so this came to my mind to include. Thanks for pointing out, I will update that Green tea and herbal tea is fine 🙂 I know its quite rationale, but that is how the diet works and Yes there are lots of argument going on that this isn’t the correct way of following proper diet!!
