Today I am going to do a review of a different kind. We generally review cosmetics and products on IMBB but today I will review a diet. In today’s world fitness is very important but to achieve it has become an issue. We try to go the easy way that is diet. Different kinds of diets are there but the most popular is the GM diet by General Motors. It is popular because it’s a vegetarian diet and can be said that it is the most followed diet by Indians.
I am overweight that I know 🙁 and my husband is a fitness freak. He always motivates me to live a fit and healthy life and not to get diseases that mainly happen due to weight. In order to achieve my target of losing weight I started the GM diet along with some exercise. We all know what to eat and follow in this diet but I would like to share what I followed (being a working women and having no time for extra stuff).
My take on GM Diet:
First day: As it was all fruits day I brought them the previous day. The fruits which can only be taken by cutting (like water melon) I preferred to eat at home. The fruits which can be directly consumed I took in my bag to office. I had 2 oranges for lunch and 2 apples in the evening. Please avoid banana, grapes, litchi and mangoes.
I decided not to weigh myself before starting the diet. First day I managed this diet as I like fruits and they are sweet too 😛 . Yes there were times when I felt hungry but by thinking of the weight loss I managed.
Second day: As it was an all veggie day I was very afraid as I don’t like veggies that much and thinking of eating them raw gave me nightmares. So I decided to go for the ones I liked a little bit. The best way to manage it while working at an office was to carry salad in a huge box for the whole day. I cut carrots (4), cucumbers (3), tomatoes (4) and with some lime and ate this salad for the whole day. Believe me it was the greatest challenge in the whole 7 days.
Third day: This day gave me relief as again I can eat fruits now with veggies. I mostly ate fruits with and a salad for lunch only. Same as the first and second day for fruit I took apples and oranges.
Fourth day: As per the diet we can have 6 bananas plus 4 glasses of milk. I made a banana shake which was easy to carry to office in a bottle. As you know banana shake is very filling and I was taking sips of it throughout the whole day. The main problem was at night I was hungry. So I made a diluted soup with garlic, tomatoes, onions and capsicum and had that as my dinner. Seriously this soup saved my day.
Fifth day: This was a better day then previous days as the option to eat were broadened. What I did was soaked some sprouts the previous day and by adding onions and tomatoes I made myself a sprout chat. Also I bought some paneer and made paneer tikka’s (just by putting paneer, tomato, onion and capsicum). Really after eating fruits and veggies for long this was a treat for me.
Sixth day: This day was soup day. As I mentioned on the fourth day, I prepared the same soup for all meals except tomatoes, as tomatoes are a big no no on this day. I also tried carrots as snacks in between along with cucumbers.
Seventh day: The last day was awesome as I had brown rice with sprouts along with soups of the sixth day. Also I had a glass of juice. You will feel so much light and happy both as you have reduced weight and as it will be your last day.
I finally weighed my self and yuppie I lost 5 kgs 🙂 . I was so happy.
- Drink at least 14 glasses of water every day and increase this intake after the forth day.
- I did skipping (500) everyday along with this diet.
Pros of GM Diet:
- You will loose weight.
- It’s an all veggie diet, so easy to do (for vegetarians).
- Your body detoxifies.
- You feel lighter and happy.
Cons of GM Diet:
- I felt a little headache on the second and third day.
- Dehydration might happen to those who didn’t follow the water rule (14 glasses).
- These cons can be overcome if you eat right and drink water. GM Diet can be followed only after a gap of 15 days from one round.
Would I recommend GM Diet?
Yes for sure.
