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

    Wish me luck :)

  4. It really worked for me …..lost 21 kgs over a span of around eight months.

  5. hi
    Into my milk and bananas day today and feeling quite light and quite bright. I have had no adverse side effects to date. I weighed 106kg prior to starting this plan but i think it is how you look and how your clothes fit that matters.
    I have tried this before many years ago with some good results of 7 pounds dropped in 1 week.
    The version i am on is different on days 5 and 6, on day 5 i have the rice and tomatoes only, on day six i have the rice and vegatables only.
    I’d be interested to hear from you guys if the results are different, i’ll post mine following day 7

    Good luck

  6. any substitute for melon in day 1……….????

  7. I have just commenced the GM Diet and keeping my fingers crossed to lose approximately 3-4 kgs. I want to follow the diet to the minutest detail and ensure that nothing comes in its way. Trust I have the determination and the positive energy to see it through….

  8. I had misunderstalingly taken dates on the first day. will it effect the diet.?

  9. Can we eat nuts like almonds and peanuts during this diet?

  10. i had started with 119 kg..
    now i am in the 6th day and now i am 114kg .
    can i be 80 kg within 2 months?

  11. After 1week of GM diet do i need to repeat this diet again on 2nd week or i have to be on normal diet then from 3rd week i need to follow GM diet.

  12. If I want to reduce more weights (or continue the diet for 3-4 weeks), should I go back to the first day of diet after completing one week?
    willwait for ur reply.

    Thanks…….

  13. right i have gotten through the first day but with a bit of a glitch i had a apple and glass of water for break no papaya but tangerine and water for mid morninh melon and water for lunch but had to have a bit of chicken so my mum would not get offended and melon and water for dinner and just to make it clear i did not have any erge to not follow the diet i did not have any problems or get hunger erges so feel quite hopeful but i could not drink 2 glasses of water.

    so far going good – not feeling tired at all. Hopefully I will stick to this.

  45. Starting on the GM diet today, i weigh about 97 pounds but im only 5″1 so my midsection is sort of chunky already. Ate lots of watermelon, a whole mango, and lots of steamed chayote dipped in spicy shrimp paste the entire day. Was only able to consume 6 glasses of water though—im never really able to drink a lot. I’ve been feeling really hungry the entire day because i’ve always been an overeater (read: 2 cups of rice, 2 varieties of meat, plus dessert, chocolate and junkfood all in my everyday diet). I dont know how long i will last on this GM diet. Its the first time i’ve ever done something like this and i cant wait to reach Day 7! I have a wedding to attend on Day 7 and want to look as fit as possible :)

  46. tomorrow l am starting gm diet. my weight is 80 kg

  47. can we dates on day1

  48. i have started today and my weight is 65kgs
    i have taken chikoo,papaya,appls,oranges,watermelon,raisins,wonder soup and suggested glasses of water…
    but was feeling very hungry the whole day..almost the whole day i was eating some fruit or the other…

  49. Hey guys! Checking back in. I posted a few messages back. :)
    Today I am on Day 4 and quite disappointed i cant have my usual mixed vegetables. That aside, Im happy to report that i’ve lost 5 pounds in the first 3 days. Huge achievement considering that i DID cheat on Day 2 dinner…i pigged out in a major way, with rice and pork and fried fish and everything. :P Also cheated on Day 3 with a brownie.

    From 97, i am now down to 92 pounds and i just hope i keep the weight off until Day 7 (day of the event im attending). :D

    Cheating again today —i had 2 Yakult bottles instead of milk along with my bananas. Heehee so yummy!

  50. Hi, i am on Day 4 but already prepping myself for the coming days… can anyone here answer, will the beef for the next 2 days not make us fat?? I mean come on, coming from just a fruit and vegetable diet, suddenly we get to feed our bodies meat. Fatty, oily meat.

    If i have other sources or iron and protein in mind, say, canned tuna or salmon or dried fish, and i still eat the 6 tomatoes, will it be okay? Im planning to do this for Days 5-6 because i really believe that beef is fattening and i dont need it if there are other healthier options.

    Appreciate your reply, thanks in advance!

  51. It was never answered if we could have almonds or peanuts anytime on this diet.

  52. GM Diet !!! ohh… Very effective

    Best wishes Aamir!

  62. I am starting from today. Need to know that is it ok if I take tea twice a day while I am on diet?

  63. I see only few comments which show what result they got. Most of the people are writing about the first day and how excited they are. It is not much useful, though. Wish to hear more details about the final result after 7th day…

  64. started ytd and didn’t see any drop in weight till now…. Had 2 apples, 2 oranges, 2 slices of water melon. 2 papayas and one coconut ytd. Was it too much? Because I mistaken the servings to be ‘any quantity’.
    For today, I ate 2 small boiled potato and had a bowl of boiled veges so far (mid day).

  65. Today is my first day……will post results as the week goes on! Would like to see others post as well!!

  66. today is my first day and my weight is 62.5 kgs….ll now let u all knw my weight on 7th day…:):)

  67. I have started from today and my weight is 108 will keep updated. Hope this will work

  68. I started the Diet yesterday. I ate only 2 apples and one eighth of a watermelon. I felt fine all day.

    Have found day two slightly harder but having prepared my meals before hand has helped. I could not have the potato this morning so ate brocolli with a little sweetcorn and paprika to add taste, for lunch i’m having spinach with raw carrot sticks and a little sweetcorn, salt and pepper to taste. This evening I will eat the potato instead.

    Surprisingly easy! Did not drink more than 2 glasses of water yesterday so have made sure I have drunk 4 already today.

    Good luck everyone!!!!

  69. Second time trying this, first time went first 3 days but day 4 was too much. This time im going to make sure i have success. starting at somewhere around 450-500 lbs, 5’7. Too heavy to weigh on scale, so gonna keep doin this till i can weigh myself. Gonna try to add some walking in today. So far so good ;-}

  70. I have seen other versions of this diet and one said instead of the beef you can eat chicken and turkey? is that true? and are the fruits and veg unlimited quanities?

  75. my height is 5;3 and weight is 70 kg i m a married girl plz tell wht to do

  76. Day one of the diet, I start at 171 lbs. My goal is to loose 31lb I gained during pregnancy. My baby is now 6 months old and I plan to follow the diet to the sample menu. I started with a cup of apple, 2 glasses of water for breakfast. Mid morning snack, raw papaya. Lunch, bowl of watermelon and i plan to go walking for about 45 minutes. For afternoon snack I have an orange and green grapes. Evening, a glass of coconut water and Dinner, bowl of melon and pine apple.
    Im really good at dieting so I hope this diet helps me to meet my goal weight of 140lbs. However, I may have to repeat it several times over the coming months while I incorporate some exercise.

    I had followed GM Diet very carefully last year (Nov-Dec) and had cumulatively lost around 7-8 Kgs in a month. (2 inches at least off my waist).

    I am going to start this again tomorrow, and feels good to know that people are contributing on this forum, sharing their experiences.

    I am gonna weigh myself today (I guess I weigh around 70kgs now, 34″ waist) and I want to loose atleast 2″ around my waist by next month’s beach holiday planned! So will keep everyone updated on the way the GM Diet goes!

    • All i can say you are very active and just need to cut your daily calories. Keep eye on your Intake. During GM diet i wont suggest this level of intensity work out.

      Expecting work out result in 15 days is possible in few cases but i would say never give up. Cheers.

    i am also doing yoga along with it.

    i noticed lot of people repeating the GM diet within a week.
    i read it somewhere that GM Diet is meant for a week only and should not be continued after that cuz it may have some side effects. althogh i am not sure so please look up before you start 2nd week.

  161. Hi, Can I drink milk (one glass everyday) too? It is hard for me not to drink milk.

  162. Im under acne medication. Can I continue taking tablets during the diet or do I have to stop taking ? one tablet in the morning and 2 in the night

  163. It’s really exciting to see how we are all eager to lose weight. @redc, nice menu, I’m sure if u stick to it you will lose so much. For those who have headaches, it means you are not taking enough water! Drink minimum of 2.2 ltrs of water every day, I believe it also aids the amount of weight u lose. It’s my 1st day here and I’m determined to see it through! Drank 1.5 ltrs of water already and I feel good. Also did some cardio exercise especially for my mid section. Do slight exercise, even if its taking a walk! I am 34yrs mother of 2, 5.3″ and weight 78kgs. Was 82 as @ November ending lost 4kg via active exercise and permanent change of diet! 70/80% of weightless is on your diet, eat well and healthy,you will be surprise @ how d weight will sta dropping! Go for skimmed milk in place of full cream, ditch soda for water, herbal teas for coffee! Change ur diet for good! I will also advice those who have successfully done this to take a 2 wks break before starting it again! I wish us luck

At 4 pm I have my kiwi ready.

    i hope to complete the diet plan. fingers crossed.

  171. hi frnds i have started my gm diet today i am 73kgs my target is 53 kgs so wish me all the best

  172. Started my GM Diet today !!! I hope I complete it.. I tried this last time some 2 years back but couldnt make it even the first day.. but this time I hope I may survive… I weigh around 95 kgs currently….

    @ 8.15 AM Breakfast – Had two slices watermelon and two slices of MuskMelon… 2 glass of water…
    @ 10.30 – Had one guava and one orange…

    I have one question. Can Guava be consumed ? Also do we have any restrictions on the quantity ? I believe fruits (esp melons) howmuch ever consumed will be digested and the cleansing process takes place becasue of which we use rest rooms often.

    Regards,
    Gops.

  186. Just started my routine today. Guys must tell you the first day was really challenging and tough. Its was not easy to stop my craving need for other foods. With my determined will as I reached the end of the day I felt very dizzy and weak. Presently I am weighting 75 kg, lets positively hope I loose 5 kg by the routine end.

    I will update my result :-)

  187. Just stepped in my third day. The second day was even more tougher, there was a slight pain in the forehead and I caught for an early sleep. Good part was I really started the feel lighter and began to see a remarkable difference in my body. Although I have finger crossed and will only check my weight on the final day.

  210. Hello,

    Let me tell you that this GM diet really works, no need to carry confusion or doubt about it,
    just there will be variation in weight reduction as per body type.

    Following is my personal experience.

    I was weighing 83Kgs. when I started my first session of GM diet, First two days I found very hard to follow but my dedication took me towards completion of this session, In first session I lost 4 Kgs. and weighed 79 Kgs. upon completion.
    Later I took 1 week gap before starting my second session, in 2nd session I lost 3 Kgs. and weight was 76Kgs.
    Then after I stopped following GM diet and switched to regular diet just to check whether my reduced weight bounces back but it did not bounce back and because of my regular diet & 45 min. brisk walk every day, I could loose 1Kg weight per week. Thus I reached up to 69Kgs till now because of which I had to change all my clothing stuff.

    I started my first session of GM diet in first week of March 2013 and from that day to till now I lost 14Kgs. with combination of regular diet & GM diet. My ultimate weight target is 65 Kgs, summer is now about to over, so from today I am again hitting GM diet so as to achieve my aim. I am expecting 3 Kgs. weight loss in my third session & then will again stick to my regular diet plan.

    Following are some of the keys and trigger points.
    1. Strong Dedication.
    2. 45 min. walk / running with proper body stretching.
    3. One should follow diet timings.
    4. Upon completion of a session, not to switch to regular meal practice immediately, chances of weight bouncing back are high. Follow some basic diet after 7 days to maintain the reduced weight.

    All the very best guys…..

    Regards,

  226. Hi . I am a vegetarian so on day 5 what should I have instead of beef n in what quantity. Secondly the wonder soup can be had on day 1 to day 7 ? Waiting to hear from u ASAP

  227. Try some protein powder, stevia sweetened or something of that nature to match the amount of meat protein.

    yes on the soup

  228. Hello guys,

    i’m gonna start the diet tomorrow…..I’m 142.5lbs. i hope i’ll reduce 10.5lbs and be 132 lbs…by the end of the week….fingers crossed…:(

  229. Hello guys,

    i’m gonna start the diet tomorrow…..I’m 142.5lbs. i hope i’ll reduce 10.5lbs and be 132 lbs…by the end of the week…..:(…I’ll keep u guys posted…:D

  230. Hey Sam, please do report back :)

    Love to hear people progress. EAT, this is not a fast ….

  231. Hi I started the diet today …. Had fruit juice in the morning … Is it fine ?

  232. Eat. You need the fiber. Instead you drank basically a glass full of fructose. Try and eat what you’re supposed to on the plan if you can.

  233. i’m going to start this tomorrow. i’m at 157lbs. Let’s see where it will go ;) will definitely report back!

  234. Started my 4th round of the GM diet. I’ve lost 30 lbs so far (15 the first week, 8 the second and 7 the third) from 285 lbs to 253 lbs. I have not cheated on the plan at all and have been doing yoga 3-4 times per week…just 10-20 minutes each time. I took between 3-7 days off between each go…tried to eat healthy most of the off time.

    A few tricks I’ve found to help. First…eat the cabbage soup WHENEVER you feel hungry…any day of the diet. I substituted jalapeno peppers for green peppers in the soup which made it much more tasty too!! Second, drink as much water as you possibly can. While you can drink orange juice some of the time, I try to save it for the few times I feel I really need an energy boost. On day two, the only day I find challenging, be sure to have cherry tomatoes handy for the mid day energy crash. A half a pint of cherry tomatoes always gets me through!

    On day 4…make banana smoothies. Very refreshing and easier to eat than just the bananas. Also, I am lactose intolerant, so I substituted rice milk for cows milk. It is lighter and easier to digest and gives you the protein and minerals you need.

    Good luck!

  235. Last day on the program and to date have lost 9.5 lbs.going for 10 lbs. Starting again tomorrow with nothing g but fruit. Did I slip up… yes… had 3 shrimp on day 2 and had some sweet potato chips ( 6 ) on day 4. They were so salty that I only managed 6. No other slip ups. Going to do this program 2 weeks on and one off until my goal weight of 145. Started at 188.8. Hope it takes only 6 weeks… will keep you posted.

  236. One week complete and am down 10.5 lbs. Feels great. Starting week 2 today. Want another 6 or 7 lbs.

  237. Starting the Diet Plan from Today!!!
    Day1 – Weight 63 KGs
    keeping my fingers crossed to lose approximately 4- 5 kgs becoz this is is my third time trying to follow GM diet. I was very confident till 2 days for 2 times but on 3rd day evening i got irritated somehow becoz of headache and i skipped the total diet. But now today i dont want to skip it at any cost
    Wish Me all the best folks!!!!!!!

  238. hang in there, I will get headaches, maybe some detox, maybe cutting certain foods, just have to hang in there, keep it up :)

  239. Im on my 3rd day of GM diet now. Lost 4.0 kg in 2 days!

  240. Kevin, Let me know whether we can have Lime water or lime water with honey instead of Water we are consuming.

    • Lime water is fine, assuming it is only lime and water. No on the honey. I would not do it… Use a little stevia if you need it sweet.

  241. Three weeks ago I stated with 85.5kg by the end of the diet plan I was 80 kg less by 5.5. I decided I will not go back to my old ways. Without knowing today I am 78kg! i will keep up with more salads and fruits + be careful with foods for tongue!

About 2 cups.found it very salty. Its not like I’m never going to cheat. But I’m more aware of what I’m cheating with.popcorn had 80 cals per cup same amount of chips would have been 600 cals.

  261. vybhava, nice results…. :)
    Hey Nancy… Cheating is tough to avoid sometimes. But sugar will destroy the results you get, it won’t take long. it is just so tough on the body.

  262. Hi All,

    Last time lost 5.5 Kgs, pretty excited this time. Had 2 bowls of melon this morning as breakfast and some more cubes of melon as morning snacks. So far so good. :-)

  278. hi divya ,, how about ur results??? how much did u reduce??

  279. Can I have tea with milk and no sugar??

  280. Hey Sherry, only if you must. I am big on sticking to the diet 100% as much as possible. So it is truly up to you :)

    • Can you tell me what if we take tea with law fat milk and no sugar, if i dont take it then i will get headache, and i need only 1 cup in morning

  281. I followed the day 1 diet, and after lunch I had very uneasy feeling due to gas. Any ways to prevent it. I had eaten musk melon, watermelon, kiwi and apple.

  282. Too much melon will get me every-time and I have a strong/normal digestion. Watch out for too much melon…

  283. my first day is hectic am craving a lot of food I weigh 65 and want to lose 15kg in 3 months
    so I can look good for December holidays
    Started first day
    mixed fruit and pear 5 glasses water little headache

    cant wait to see the result

  284. Hi I started the diet today. Is black coffee with little sugar ok? Till now I have had 3 bowls of fruits (melons apples, pineapples) in the day and have had sufficient water. Being a coffee lover I helped myself with 3 cups of black coffee. Is it fine or should I stop it?

  285. No black coffee is not OK, and for sure neither is sugar. Sorry :(

    They are actually bad, especially the sugar. I’m not going to be the one to tell you to quit coffee, but this diet needs to be a time of reflection as to how you will come out of the diet healthier and changed. Hope you do well :)

  286. I am very excited on seeing the results and posts of Magical work of GM DIET and started today.
    I have included pomegranates along with whatever you said like Apples,Watermelon,Papaya,lots of water.
    Is that ok to include pomegranates in Day 1?

    Awaiting your reply

  287. Not that familiar with pomegranates, they should be OK :)

  288. I am really excited with the comments and experiences of people on GM diet…
    im on day 1… it’s gonna b real tough for me to keep up to the diet however i shall try and give my best

  289. I am allergic to milk!! What can I substitute on the milk/bananas day? Going to start this in a few days. I have a cruise coming up!!

  290. Tough one on the milk, maybe try a soy or almond milk. Have fun on the cruise :)

  291. Started Day 1. Serious headache. Struggling.

  292. Sorry Gugus, usually detox, think about what you w ere eating before and not now, Will do it every time. To me though this diet should cut down on that since fruit is allowed. Caffeine, sugar and lots of flour once you cut it can come back as not feeling so well for a day or 2…

  293. Thanks Kevin, I haven’t started yet, haven’t had time to get everything together! I MAY be able to do low fat milk, I haven’t had it in so long I forget what I can and cannot have!

  294. Starting today…
    Weight: 138.2 lbs
    Height: 5’5″

  295. GOOD LUCK Amrita, make sure you eat, this is not a fasting low calorie diet :)

  296. im on 7th day i have lost around 3 kgs i need to do it once more can i start immediately or should i give a break? plz plz let me know

  297. Roopa you can try it certainly or take a week or 2 off, really up to you to test

    Will let you guys know if there any positive results :)

  303. i have started GM Diet plan on 3 weeks back and at the end of 1 week i was 4 kg less than earlier.. but now my weight is stable.. though i am continuing this plan till now.. please suggest, if more weight will be reduced or not.. and they have also mentioned 3 days break before every repetition… please suggest if its mandatory.. because m not taking breaks in diet plan.. if this is the reason that weight is not reducing now…. please reply ASAP… i want to follow the instructions….

  304. Hello Vimmi,

    At some point you have to come off, ideally you do it once a month. The big test and best thing you can do is not stay on a diet, rather change the habits that have potentially made you more over weight. There are tons of triggers that can vary per person. For me it was simple, I ate too much junk food and ate out too often. So please do not stay on it. It is not meant for that.

  305. Today was my first day. Had a wide variety of fruits in the form of salad mixed in dressings. Binged on a few cashew nuts even though I was not sure if it was okay to. Tried to drink a lot of water. I have started to feel headache since afternoon. I hope the ache goes away after a good nights sleep. Looking forward to the next day…..

  306. I have been attempting this diet since I saw my baby sitter lost about 20 lbs on this diet program. I have never made it through day 1. Hopefully this time I will be able to stay committed for the 7 days and more :). I am 5’9- 198 lbs. Short term goal for this week “sticking to this program” Wish me luck as day 1 begins.

  307. Good luck Shani :)

  308. I tried it for 5 days and lost 2.5 kgs!! But lot of people around me have suggested not to follow as it does help in losing weight but it results in regaining double very quickly. I am little confused as to continuing it for another week.

  309. Not sure what that means? Double? The diet can work. But that’s up to each person in mist cases. Did you happen to ask each person what heir diet was like afterwards? Sorry but if you think this diet will do all you need without a lifestyle change that’s, let face it, caused us all to gain weight you will find the same results with any diet out there, end of story. Too many people look at their diet plan and not enough the after.

  310. hii..From mon i’m gonna start the GM diet. i weigh 73.5 kg n my height is 5.3″. i need to reduce as much weight as possible.Cn i go to the gym while following this diet ? Should i eat fruits after 8? please let me know

  311. Sure you can workout.
    Fruits? really up to you and your post diet plan, fruits can be fine for some and tough for others, normal rule of thumb I hear is 2 servings.

  312. Hi,
    Today is my first day of GM diet. feeing very difficulty to have only fruits that too limited.today morning my weight was 61.5kgs.I am very eager to check my weight tomoro morning.:)

    can i have any amout of fruits which u have mentioned???? or only limited quantity which u have mentioned we have to take????????

  313. hi.. i addition to my earlier comment.. i have some doubts yet… you suggested earlier that i can follow this diet plan once a month (please also read mine and yours earlier comments).. would it be helpful shedding weight every month about 3-4 kgs…?? please reply ASAP… thanks…

  314. Not sure what you mean, you can do the diet once or twice, my opinion is once then eat right after that to maintain and hopefully lose more. At some point your lifestyle has to be your means of losing and maintaining.

  315. Can we put salt on fruits and veggi …. or can we eat fruit chatt ?…?

  316. salt is OK, just never overdo it :)

  317. Today is my First day, fruits all ready,My weight 58.7kg
    Plan 1)B fast- 1pear and 1 orange
    2)snck- 1 apple
    3)Lunch – melons
    4)Lemon water
    5)Fruit platter ,all fruits for dinner
    2-3 litres of water
    Most important is strong determination and being positive..”I can do it”!

  318. its lunch time..very severe craving,no other difficulties….
    I should stick on to this..Wish me Luck!

  319. Hang in there Daniel…
    :)

  320. Hi,

    Today i have started this gm diet. I am expecting a weight loss of 5 kg.

    I ll update after 7 days.

  321. Today is my Day 1. My starting weight is 68kg. I have to lose 15kg in three months so that I can fit into my dream dress for my brother’s wedding in late Jan. I will stick to this diet no matter how…so hopefully I can lose 5kg after 7 days! I will keep you all posted on my progress each day! Thank you for the author whom put up this awesome and detailed diet plan!

  322. Hi
    Can we have the cabbage soup every day with GM diet a lot of people tell me it will help to lose weight fast.

  323. Today is my first day , I want to lose 20-30 pounds
    I am 162 lbs 5.5 wish me luck .

  324. can i have sugar apple instead of papaya in day one as mid morning snack?

  325. Hi,

    Today is my first day, I would like to ask that can i have tea without sugar in morning

  326. I followed this plan about 4 years back. I started when I weighed 104Kgs and at the end of the 7th day, I was 90Kgs. This really worked and I have started this again today as I have gained back 14kgs over 4 years.

  327. Thank you author for providing a detailed diet plan. My first day of GM Diet. I weigh 62kg. Want to lose 5kg in a week . :). Once it worked, will update with the diet chart I followed.

  328. I was on chocolates/pastries, pizzas, burgers, coke and fried chicken for too long, and weighed around 78 kgs. My schedule had no workout regime whatsoever and my activity level was almost zero (You know, working infront of a computer sitting for almost 10-12 hrs!) I went on this diet in Jan, 2013…Man! It was difficult as hell! But I stuck to it…By third day, I was not even able to walk around, my body was too weak! But I stuck to the plan and when I finished the diet, I had lost 7 kgs! I did this diet only for a week. After that, for nearly 5 months I lay off all unhealthy food and stuck to home cooked food and without much physical exercise I’m at 61 Kgs now. Occasionally, I do treat myself with chocolates/pizzas/KFC! But I’m at a happy place in life and have been able to maintain my weight of 61 kg for the past 4 months. This diet gave me the motivation/will power to chose a healthy lifestyle. I will always be thankful to this diet! Don’t give up midway guys! Good luck!

    • Nice job :) You do have to find a healthy lifestyle afterwards to maintain, seems like you are in a good place…

    • Hi Mary, I am responding to you as my profile is identical to yours….77kg, and have eaten wrong for far too long. Am starting GM diet tomorrow, my first serious attempt at any diet! I Am dreaming to achieve the results which you did….but mostly, am praying that I am just able to hang in there for the next seven days…wish me luck!

  329. Hi,
    After taking medicine for the gall balder stones, i gained my weight almost 12kgs making me weigh 70kgs within few months, I was very weak after taking medicine so they had to give healthy suppliments, that again was kind medicine. I had taken Ayurvedic medicine, the only side effect was hair loss for some time and weight gain. I tried my best to reuce my weight but could not, it’s been the same weight since more than 4 years. I did used to go for a walk say for 3hrs atleast for almost an year, I still walk but not so much, and was also under diet eating only chapatis for almost 3 months, just liquids for some time, but I could not lose even half kg, it’s been the same ever since i gained, I neither gained more nor lose. My intake of food is less compared to normalcy, and hardly eat anything outside, mostly home made. I am even starved for 1 or 2 days, not to lose weight but, it just happens sometimes, say for some 10 days or 15, may be more since 4years not continuously!! Some times just on water, but i never saw even half kilo being reduced!! i was between 54 to 60 for many years since i was 24 or max i was 64kgs, 5’5 ft.height. But now i am 70 and has become standard!!

    May I really hope for weight loss following these dietary instructions?? and also,

    may I extend the period like 7 days to 14 each being 2days or 21 each being 3?? does that work even losing more weight than just 5kgs?? I wanna lose atleast 10kgs may not be like a miracle but hopefully eventually……. and

    does it also improve metabolism and helps reduce the stomach??

    Please guide me…….. Have a nice day :-) Thank you

    • Happy to help.

      Are you still taking gallbladder meds? You obviously need to eat, fasting will do nothing for you but confuse your body. With a bad gallbladder you have to eat healthy! Coconut oil should be your oil of choice, the liver does not have to process it, thus making it a healthy gallbladder friendly fat. If you are eating much of other oils you will have issues. This diet can be a great way to lose weight but you need to follow it, eat the soup and so on. then see how you do, from there you need a steady healthy lifestyle….

  331. Hi can I work out during GM DIET ??? every day I use to work out at night 1 o clock in my room and sleep as I couldn’t find time to go to gym …. Is this ok?? Please suggest any alternative ways … I am working…. Can u also tell how to reduce cheeks fat ??? Thank you :)

    • Yes you can workout. Unfortunately not being asleep by 10pm is bad. Your body does so much repair and cleansing between 10pm and 2am or so. Also your circadian rhythms need to be normal for better weight loss. Studies have shown individuals working different ships struggle more with weight. So you will just have to do the best you can. Which cheeks you talking about, the face :)

  332. Thank u so much for the reply… Got used to sleep at 2 30 after workout since a year … Is it that harmful to get in more weight?? and Yes I am talking about face cheeks .

    • It’s high cortisol levels from you being up all night, essentially you are stressing out you adrenal glands. The only fix, sleep right! Well also diet, but diet alone will not help you here, sorry….

  333. Thank you for your inputs … Will start GM diet from tomorrow … Take care

  334. wish me luck, i just started today, i weigh 95 kg, i will like to lose at list 15kg before christmas

  335. Hi Everyone!

    So after reading most of the comments here, I decided to give this diet a try. Today was my first day and this was my menu for day 1:

    Breakfast:

    1/4 melon
    1/2 pineapple
    2 squeezed oranges + lime (but it was very dry, so I almost used no lime)
    1 Glass of water
    Snack: Strawberries

    Lunch:

    1/2 pineapple
    1/4 melon
    1 kiwi

    Snack: Green apple

    Dinner:

    Red apple
    1 orange
    1 kiwi

    *Water throughout the day* (Almost 2 litres)

    Actually this diet was not as easy as I expected. At times I was feeling like I was almost going to faint so I drank lost of water…Author, what do you think about it please? Did I exagerate with the fruits? However in the morning I ate so much that I was feeling that I was almost going to explode….

    I have just baked 2 small/medium potatoes for tomorrow morning..They look so crispy, yummy! I am dying to eat one right now!

  336. By the way, starting weight is 7kg :'(

  337. ****79kg!!!!!!

  338. Is it ok to take iron supplements along with this diet?

  339. Started this diet. i am on my day 1. Heard good reviews from my friends who did thus before and all lost around 5 to 6 pounds minimum.
    Hope this works for me as I have to loose around 8 to 10 kgs.
    If i can loose 10 kgs my dream will come true.

  340. Today is the 2nd day of Diet .
    3rd day would be mixture of fruits and vegetables .
    4th day …..bananas with milk ….( not sure )

  341. Hi
    I am very obes and I want to loose weight. I want to know Soups you recommended can be taken on which days. Can it be included from day Onee as Wonder soup or Some more soup you toldvegetarian
    please help
    paRUL

  342. hi author,

    i just finished my 1 week GM diet last nov 13, lost 8 lbs!not too shabby!and today,(after 4 days) i decide to go on the diet again. is that okay? thanks!

    • 8 is great, you can do it as often as you want. But my opinion is once a month, no more than twice. Then after a couple your daily dietary changes will need to carry you.

  343. I am hypothyroid patient. is gm diet good for me..can I have black coffee during gm diet

    • You may need to consult a doctor. But I will say if you do it, if the meal based on the plan has no Fat then you need to add a tablespoon of coconut oil to each of those meal. You need good fats.

  344. can i have a tea in gm diet plan

  345. Hi Everyone!

    It is my second round of this diet, here was today’s menu:

    Breakfast: Apple, tangerine

    Snack: Tangerine

    Lunch: Apple, tangerine, few grapes

    Snack: 2 tangerines

    Dinner: Few grapes, kiwi, slice of melon, pear.

    I did this diet 1 week ago,and I had 1 week break. I’ve gained 1 kilo during that 1 week ”break” even though I was exercising + eating sensibly. So my weight right now is 76kg, not that happy, and I want to go below 70, hope that my third round of this diet will bring me these results!

  346. Can i drink regular tea with sugar and not sweetener? Can i have the wonder soup on all 7 days?

    • no, sugar is sweetener. yes you can have soup all 7 days, keep in mind you cannot have tons of sugar, especially in tea, you’re drinking your calories. BAD idea.

  347. Hi Everyone,

    I want to know that is this Diet plan useful if i want to reduce my Tummy fat?

    I am 5’4″ and weight is 62 KG i want to reduce 5 KG specifically tummy part. So please tell whether this will be helpful or not.

    Thanks

    • It can and has for some, but keep in mind if you carry much of your weight in your tummy it can be from high cortisol levels, etc…

  348. can I have dry fruits on this diet plan ? specially on 1st 3 days

    • Beware, you end up eating well over what you should. Keep in mind they are dryer versions, still full of the same sugar, what ends up happening is you say are told to eat an apple, but instead use dry fruit, do you only eat one apple dried worth? No dry fruit just ends up being over eaten. If you can measure one fruit to the amount of dried fruit you eat, great. I used to love dried mangoes, however I would over eat them! Just be careful.

  349. Hi.. I got so inspired by all of u dat i started the diet today…
    but i am having headache is it ok???

  350. i also wanted to knw if u can eat the ready to eat maggi or knor soups???
    plz help me!!!

    • Think while you’re on this diet, ‘HEALTH’. Read ingredients and understand what you eat have been eating and how you can change. Beware, these have tons of sodium.

  351. so u recommend only the wonder soup???

    • make your own soup, use your own spices that you like, I love habanera powder, spices are cheap and easy to get like dried onion and so on. You don’t need mixes.

  352. Hi author
    Plz let me know can I drink turkish tea that one is just plain tea with mint can I hv that in the mornings without sugar…
    Bc my eyes cannot open properly if I dont drink the tea..lolzz

  357. Started GM diet again.. Lost 2.5 kgs last time (2 weeks back) and gained 1/2 kg back in 15 days ..

  358. Lost 2.5 kgs last time. Want to loose 8-9 kgs more..
    How many cycles will it take for me to reduce that much?

  359. i m starting my diet plan from today, pl wish me luck. i m 72kg n my target is 52kg.Almost 20 kgs i have to shed it off, within 3 months is it possible. pl reply. (target is 8kg. per month)

    • You can lose that weight possibly, depends on what health issues you may have, how you eat later on after the diet, etc etc etc? Biggest deal will be will you change how you live and eat after the diet :)

  360. pl do reply dear…. i m very anxious to loose my weight. i m 5.1′, 29 yrs, married, n having two kids. i have to loose 20kgs in 3months. and i will follow the diet plan strictly. NO CHEATING AT ALL.

  361. today i m on day 3, feeling light, but not yet checked the weight.can we have green peas, fenugreek leaves, spinach, coriander leaves, mint leaves from 3rd day. N also suggest can we eat indian berries as a fruit? n what about boiled pulses (sprouts) and lentils can we eat that too. pl reply. i m really following the diet strictly. waiting for day 7 to check my weight. N i m confident that i will achieve my target of 52kgs in 3months. waiting for your reply. really thanks a lot . my hubby will be more happy to see me in new avataar. we will be celebrating my 5th wedding anniversary on 10th march. hope i will be fitting in my old blouses again till then.

    • be careful eating too many green peas, but yes that all seems OK. lentils can replace meat, but no for those on day 3. make sure you add some good oil in there, meat has fat, so must the vegetarian sub. Congrats on your anniversary, hang in there :)

  362. Hi ….I’m 28 Years Old with 5.11″ and 94KG Weight…I’m trying my best to reduce down my weight with Brisk Walk but couldn’ really get the results…may be cause of my diet…

  370. Can I workout while doing the 7 day diet??? help! thanks!

  371. hi author I am on my 5 day my diet is going good way but having bad constipation pls suggest what to do for avoid this….

    • not a doctor, a suggestion may be you need a little more good fat, eat the soup, you need the fiber…… It can vary per person so much and their health.

  372. Hello, today i start my GM Diet. I got height 170 cm and weight 79.6 kgs. Wish me luck so i could complete until day 7th.

  373. Hello,
    I started following GM diet from today. So DAY 1 it is. Tough to suppress the cravings.
    I had apples in Breakfast & Lunch and Papaya in dinner. Had two mugs of black coffee without sugar. One mug around 12′o clock and another around 6′o clock in the evening. Few queries which I have:
    1. Is is ok to use Salt in fruits & Vegetables?
    2. Can we intake black coffee or Green tea without sugar 4-5 times in a day?
    3. When shall I start taking G.M.’S Wonder Soup (like day 2, day 3 or when) and How many times can I have it in a day?
    Please help me out and All the very best to people who gonna start it after reading this forum.

  374. Can you drink sparkling, flavored water like LaCroix which has zero calories, zero sodium?

    • not big on anything in a can, and with an ingredient that just says natural flavors which can mean lots of bad stuff possible, you should be ok with those though, up to you to try :)

  375. Hello,

    I am allergic to milk. Can I opt for unsweetened & unflavored yogurt for day 4? Also, why is brown rice a substitute for beef (day 5)? Does it have something similar to beef?

    • yogurt fine. rice? common for vegetarians and soy is terrible. you will need at least a teaspoon of good oil with it. You can do legumes if you want. or chicken/fish if you eat those.

  376. fingers crossed… my first day!
    started with orange n water!
    Height = 5’7”

    • Eat the wonder soup, you should be, that’s what its there for…..

    • Even if u eat wonder soup on day 1 u still would feel hungry. Dont starve urself. Try eating fruits in combo. Like a bowl of papaya with one big apple or something. But dont drink juice. U’ll feel relaxed and dnt think about eating :D

    • I am surprised you lost 3 lbs. Please, anyone reading this you have to actually follow the diet for it to work. We say 4 bananas and ZERO oranges. Sorry, wish I could help but can’t if you won’t follow the plan.

  393. Hi on days 1 to 3, amount of Fruits and veges are limited and un limited. Also i have an old version of diet where on day 6 bowl of white rice is recomended instead beaf. is that ok?

  394. Hi, i am going to start GM diet from tomorrow i.e 3rd March 2014.My weight is 75kg and height is 5 feet 2 inches. My target is to achieve 55kgs. Can i loose 20 kgs in 1 month i.e in March? Kindly tell me about exercises, I like to walk at night so tell me that 1 hour walk would be sufficient for diet? Give me some more tips for diet.
    Thanks..!!
    Regards…!!!

    • 1 month? Yikes. For most people it took time to gain weight, naturally it can take time to lose it. What’s great about this diet is the jump-start it gives. Exercise is great.

      tips: Don’t cheat, don’t do fake versions of this diet, and eat healthy when you are done!

  395. Plz give me a diet plan for tomorrow. Plz answer my these questions.
    1-As I am a hostelite so all the stuff is not available here. I have just Apples and Bananas for tomorrow Can I eat only these 2 fruits the whole 1st day?
    2- I dont want to eat any kind of meat so any subtitude of meat?
    3-certain fruits which u are talking about like melons are not available in this season so should we take tin fruits or can take apples & bananas?
    4-can we take extra suppliments in the form of tablets e.g multivitamins etc??
    5- I use Green tea 2-3 times a day without sugar but uses some times honey, can I do so? I mean can I take Green tea instead of water?
    Please do reply fast.. I AM WAITING.
    Thank you so Much..!!

    • 1) more apples, less bananas
      2) yes, when subbing meat do a bowl or rice or legumes with a teaspoon or so of oil
      3) Do what you can.
      4) sure
      5) No sweeteners. only a 2 to 3 cups of tea a day.

  400. How can i rectify it?

  401. Dear Author!
    I am realllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly happpppppppppy and pleased to say that i lost 5 kgs this whole week :) I am realllllly very thank ful to you that you answered my questions. May ALLAH ALMIGHTY gives you success & happiness in life.

    Q) Kindly tell me that today i.e on sunday is my 7th day, of GM diet so should i repeat again the diet from tomorrow i.e from Monday to Sunday for next 7 days?

    • AWESOME :)

      I would wait 2 weeks, in the meantime cut sugar bad grains, processed foods and eat right :) You will be amazed at how well you still may do :)

  402. one more Question is that, i take wonder soup daily, 2-3 cups. I make this soup by just adding cabbage in water and boil it for 20 mints. I add some salt & black pepper in it and thats it. After having the soup i eat the boiled cabbage which was in soup.
    Please tell me is their any harm of this cabbage soup on health?
    I am asking coz one of my cousin did crushed diet last year and took cabbage soup daily (she was not doing GM die) so although she lost 15 kgs but after that she suffered from severe TYPHOID.
    Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee tell me that why she got typhoid? I mean because of cabbage soup coz all her family members told that indeed it was because of cabbage soup so thats why our parents now dont allow us to have cabbage soup.
    Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee i need a detailed answer. Is cabbage soup harmful for health? responsible for typhoid?

  403. :) ok thanks alot dear author , it means i can take cabbage soup :) I will eat right things for next 2 weeks. After 2 weeks i will come again on GM Diet. I really enjoyed this diet :)

    • Well off diet, make sure it has some good fat in it like some bone broth, fish, olive oil, you do not want to go fat free.

  404. today i am on 5th day of my diet. i lost 2 kgs till date. one question can i have orange juice on 7th day without sugar.

    • No it’s pure sugar especially if it’s not fresh. Never drink orange juice, it’s junk. Unless fresh squeezed from organically grown oranges.

  405. Hi All, Today is my first day .:)..I have one question how much chances of gaining weight back?

  406. Have started the GM Diet on 10th March 2014, I was 88.9 kgs that i checked yesterday morning.

    Was a little confused initially if i could complete this though i am a determined person, had this doubt as I love to eat.

    Breakfast:
    I had Water melon (ate quite a few melon pieces) for my breakfast with a very small cantaloup(karbuja, without sugar)
    Did not know much, had melon with pepper and salt (I am sure it doesnt affect),

    Lunch: Had only water melons(ate quite a few melons around 1.15pm).

    around 4pm I started feeling little tired and strengthless. but could manage till 6pm
    Around 6pm had a small piece of pappaya (say 75-100 gms) and a slice of pine apple(50-75gms)
    started feeling better and did not want to add much as melon is more advised on the first day in the diet plan.

    driving back home was tough as i did not have the strength. was somehow feeling tired and had to open the car windows for fresh air. somehow reached home ( i have to drive an hour approx everyday)

    had a couple of oranges after reaching home(~7.30) and was back normal.

    Dinner: around 8.30pm had a small piece of cantaloup(karbuja without sugar). did not want to eat anything more.

    Trust me friends, today morning at the same time i checked my weight and the scale was showing 87.9 Exactly 1 kg in A DAY!!!!

    Yes this has worked on the first day, Shall post second day result tomorrow!!

    Sachin

  407. hey i want to know if can i eat zucchini?and on the first day other than the sample plan if i can snack on baby carrots with it too??and what can i do for the belly fat?is there a way to speed up my metabolism?i have a marriage to attend in a week and i want to lose weight..please help!!

    • zucchini and a veg is great. maybe a few carrots, not many. Belly fat, tends to be caused by eating too many grains and loads of processed foods. If you eat whole natural foods, balanced with protein it will likely reduce. High cortisol levels are usually a marker of that as well. Exercise some will help, try Burst or HIT training though.

  408. today was my day 1-
    i had an apple in the morning
    1 apple afternoon
    1 small cup of custard caramel mid afternoon
    2 oranges in evening
    1 small bottle of strawberry milk at night

    was this bad for day 1?is my diet plan affected?

    • Sorry, terrible actually. Custard and strawberry milk? If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you cannot eat food like this..

  409. Hi there.

    Today is the start of my GM diet (March 17). Im 58.9kg. Wish me luck! :)

    Day 1:
    Bfast – apple
    Snack – papaya

    Snack – orange

  414. Hi, I have started the diet plan today. Can I take my iron supplements while I am on this diet?

  415. Hi,

    I have been taking hot water since morning as it gives me bit relief for the headache and tooth ache. Now done with the lunch. At times feeling too tired, but holding onto it as I need to shed the extra kilos. I have been fluctuating between 52 -54kgs in the last 3-4 years. Recently there was an increase i weight – around 56.8kg..actually I had started eating out a lot. Started with day 1.. feeling dizzy. I want to reduce atleast 4kgs and get back to my normal self.

    this is what I had till now(my headache is constant.. seems like I woke up with a headache)
    morning – 2 glass warm water
    brkfast – 1 cup watermelon
    snacks – 1 big apple
    water – 3 glasses
    lunch – 1 cup watermelon and 1 orange
    water – 1 glass

    Am I going good? I am ok with teh appetite but headachhe is an issue.

  416. Dear author,

    Thanks for the revert.

    Yesterday was terrific. Bad headache and dizziness and dude to severe headache I even puked whatever I had. So ended up having a cup of Tea. Felt energised and got rid of the headache finally. rest of the diet plan was followed strictly by me.

    Glad to know that having Green Tea is ok, I generally don’t add sweetener to it.

    Now comes the good part. Yesterday evening I measured my weight before having the Tea – it was 57.1kgs in the evening and night I had watermelon and water.

    Now on my second day – started my day with green tea so as to avoid headache. The for breakfast had two medium sized baked potatoes – with a pinch of cheese and crushed pepper, added some garlic to it. On the way to work, I measured my weight and lo it is 56.1 kgs.. can u believe it… reduced 1 kg in a day. amazing. really boosted up to continue for the rest of the days. :) I feel really light today, a slight difference in the way I look.

    Will keep posted about the progress. :)

    • Hello, the headaches can be so normal, detox basically, your body is so used to processed foods, sugar and caffeine. Coming off can be difficult. So the green tea (No sweetener) can be a nice alternative to help you along. Keep that feeling in mind, how you feel light once you add back in processed foods, wheat products and such it will go away.

  417. I had only tea with little sugar.Is it ok

  418. Hi

    today is my 4th day with GM diet. i am not able to notice any significant change. i have followed the diet very strictly but i wasnt aware of the timings. will it effect the kg i have targeted to reduce. Also i have lots of swelling in my body due to medical reason so will it help the swellings to dissapear.

  419. Good morning guys :) today is my first day.. guys wish me luck To stay motivated!!!

  420. Hi,

    Today is my 7th day of diet. first before starting it was 57.1…second day it was 56.1…on the 4th day I checked it was 56.7….day 6 it was 55.5.
    tOday day 7… it is 56.2

    I have been following the diet very strictly. Yesterday in my green tea a bit of honey was added.. will it make a diffrence. Am I not going to lose anymore weight in spite of such strict diet. I took this up because, I was eatig out and having lot of milk shakes lately and gained weight by 3kg than what i was earlier. My weight has been constant upto 53 to 54 for the last 6 years. the sudden change i could not digest. Iuesd to work out also..but now I am not able to take out time. I guess I need to start off yoga and avoid outside food as well. But I am sad that GM did not helpme much I expected to lose at least 3 Kgs.

    I am a veggie and my general food diet..includes..morning milk and kellogs K speacial 8.30am, then one cup of green tea at 11am, afternon lunch at 1.30pm- veg salads – cucumber, tomatoes, onion, olives, with vinegar little salt n pepper, evening – one green tea, nite dinner at 9pm – one cup rice and lots of vegetables, sometimes curd.

    • Hello
      What did you eat on day 4. You have to realize when you add sweetener to tea and drink it yes it throws your body off. Milk and cereal in the morning so so bad. Your diet lacks real protein also. You may want to consider a complete diet over haul.

  421. Hello, Admin I’m worried I started my diet Yesterday and today Morning I checked my weight and its still same nothing reduced Its my 2nd round I ate only cantaloup all 4 times with water and Wonder soup and one cup tea without sugar it was same diet which I took in my 1sr round but I didnt loose any single pound today :(:(:( Why I dont know I m surprised ??? While I gained back 2 kg last week it must be reduced any help ?

  422. Thanks i m not holding it I have contoniued and will check how much kg will reduce this time:(

  423. Started today. 1st Day. So far i had coconut water, 1 apple, a slice of cantaloupe and slices of oranges as snack.

    I still got a watermelon slice, another apple, papaya, pineapple and grapes. Are these all good to keep me until the night? Of course Im targeting 2-3 liters of water intake today.

  424. I have done gm diet and lost 12 pounds… I want to know if I can continue from day8 as day1… ???… Credits to gm diet it’s awesome … Easier self control then every other diet it has superb variety my bmi is 39.5… Hoping on gm diet to get to normal… Thanks again to gm diet

  425. Today is my second day. I feel realy happy. it is a fantastic diet plan. I lost 860 gm in one day. Let you know further…..

    • I would wait 2 weeks, however you have to still eat right, Cut processed foods, have balanced meals, etc,

    • I have finished my shedule after 5 days.
      Total i have lost 2.75Kg.
      Other than weight loss, I feel better, changes in atitude,coolness, relax mind (no tension on back of mind).
      During my schedule, i felt i is quite difficult task to complete 7 days. I can.But, second time i will not dare to adopt this diet plan very easily. Hence, I broke schedule on 6th day and I may go for second round of another 5 days very soon.

  426. Dear Author,

    I would like to know, saying cereal and milk is so bad…but we generally have kellogs with milk only rite. Checked my weight today and its now 55.4 kg. Happy that I am atleast maintaining what I lost from 57 Kg. I look abit slimme tahn before for sure.. can see the plumpy face disappear. I stopped drinking normal tea altogether. Now only on green tea – do I add honey to it or not?

    Could you suggest a healthy less caloried diet for a veggie on a regular basis. I have also started doing yoga now.

    • I would say no on honey until you are the right weight, however if you must rarely and only a little. What was your question about cereal? Being healthy and keeping weight off is not about being low calorie. Be balanced, I eat lots of good fats now, meat, veg and a little fruit. I am not low carb, I eat good starches. Low calories confuses the body, you end up with a low set point on what your body will take when it comes to calories, so when you go over just a little, etc you will gain weight.

  427. hi, I would like to follow gm diet but I hv a doubt that wthr it has to be followed throughout lifetime or to certain period bcos if take fruits(melon like) alone continuously I get cold, so in such case wht should I do? any one plz answer me

    • you can do it a few times, waiting a month or at least 2 weeks in between each one. However you must come off the diet and eat healthy. That’s the real key.

  428. I have started today 06.04.2014…m a female..weight 70 kgs(~155 lbs) ..height 5’6”……
    brkfst- 1/2 fuji apple 2.5 glasses of water
    mrng snack- quarter long papaya 2 glasses of water
    lunch- 1/2 a small watermelon 2 glasses of water
    eve snack-2 glasses of water
    dinner- 1/2 a medium musk melon 1.5 glass of water….

    Having read all ur experiences with the GM diet could not stop starting over with it with full believe dat it wil curb at least 2 kgs by the end of the diet on 7th day….
    Can plz any one suggest any replacement of cabbage..my husband cant take cabbage…..
    Thanks all and keep it up till u get dat lean n beautiful shape….

  429. is ther any replacement for banana shake in snack on day 3….i ant carry to my wrk place actuly…wat else can i have..plz suggest……also i want to knw if we can take raw cabbage cucumber tomato and carrot salad or sprouts salad or any fruit salad in da lunch on 3rd 4th & 5 th day….as m wrking i wont b able to carry any liquid and they wont taste good to have aftr long hrs…
    plz suggest….. :-(

    • Where do you see bananas on Day 3?
      Day 4 no you do not get fruit.

      Salad is fine as a soup replacement, ONLY if you must. but you only get a 1/2 teaspoon of oil on it. but can have dried herbs and spices.

  430. hi…….. i want to lose 15 kg. I have a bit confusion regarding continuing diet plan. In the gm diet plan webpage somewhere it is written that if u want to do it for a special occasion u can take a 2-3 days gap between diet plan and u said in earlier comments that we have to take 2 week gap atleast. Can u please eloborate me regarding this gap as i want to continue it to lose my heavy weight.

    • To me it’s best to come out of this eating real whole foods, cutting anything processed, all sweeteners and wheat for at least 2 weeks. Then do the diet again, you may be shocked at how well you could do…

  431. hi..today is my day first ..“`can i take fruit juice……without sugar

  432. Thnx a lot author for solving my prob…..some more querries plz….
    one of my frens is going to start frm tomorrow….can the papayas and melons on first day be replaced by cucumbers apples oranges ???can i sip green tea w/o sugar inbetween meals in place of water or…i took 16 glasses of water in my first day…one of the gm diet followers here in my neighbour said too much of water is nt good drink only 10-12 glasses of water,is it true????instead of potato in the second day wat can i take….and if potato can it be taken with black salt & pepper…and fruits or any salads through out the diet can they b made little tasty by adding little salt pepper ans chat masala…. :-) :-)

    • yah too much can be bad, hard on kidneys, flushes out minerals. never overdo it. drink when thirsty and don’t under do it either. salt pepper and spices are fine. potato needs some oil/fat also. no fruit in salad, chat masala fine.

      eat the soup any time you need food. This diet should not put anyone in hospital, unless you are ill and need to consult a doctor please. hang in there :) always happy to help here :)

  436. hi …can i eat grapes on my day first

  437. no grapes …..its considered an anti-dieting food i guess…

  438. hi…today is my first day………… can i start my day with mango……..

  439. As u said earlier that its better to exercise with this diet to get best results. But i have to sit whole day in office because of heavy work load and reach home late in evening too. Can u please give me any suggestion. i want best results …today is my first day…please reply author…………….i need ur useful suggestion.

    • Working out for long periods of time causes huge stress on the body, do HIT training quick burst workouts, even if you just did this 15 minutes a day to get your heart rate up it would be great.

  440. can u please eloborate this “HIT training quick burst workouts”

  441. Sorry, HIT or Burst training. Google It, but basically you workout hard and fast take small breaks, do it again, etc…

  442. Thanks author for giving me ur useful suggestions…….i have 2 questions…………..first is……can i just thoroughly fry all vegetables with bolied potato in one spoon butter……..
    and second is…… can i use red mirch powder? ….(on day 2)

    • Hello
      You can have butter oil when it says, like on your potato day 2 so fine there. But no otherwise… The soup prep veg has a little oil to sautee the veg.

  443. Hi All…
    I hav been planning to start with the GM diet since a mnth….but my husband wud nevr allow me to diet…he cant see me fasting even….bt now i have got a chance to start wiith…my husband is going fr a business tour for 3days and two nights today…….yippiieeeee….i wil start dis diet tomorrow…..
    may i have cucumber..oranges…apple…watermelon & watr fr first day….instead of papaya and musk melon….’and how much water per day should i drink….can i take green tea without sugar to replace water sm time…..fruits and green tea;will it hamper stomach….would 30 mins jump rope with 20 seconds interval aftr each 3 mins do…..or i have to increase tym of jumps….which one will accelerate my weight loss process more along wid the diet ..walking 1 hr or jumprope 30 mins…….kindly suggest

    • day 1 sounds good. drink water as you are thirsty, never over do it, 8 glasses is normal, more if you need, just not too much more. I am all for the jump roping, gets your heart rate up. You will be OK, just don;t do it right after eating. Good luck :)

  444. thnx author…

    coz my most of the day is spent in ofis…so nt sure wud be able to do exercises or not but wanted to confirm if i cud do jump ropes aftr i reach home at 7:30 pm…dat tym my stomach wud b majorly empty and little filled with water….as we hav a nyc gap between eve snack and dinner…..

    day 1 has coconut water at around 6:30pm….can i replace it with plain water…..can i have watermelon juice without sugar…juz with little amount of ice in my dinner instead of any fruit or chewable stuff…..that looks so much of sweet at the end of da day as whole day we r on fruit chew…..

    • yes you can shift times.
      jump rope great, do it intensely for a minute or so, take a break, do it again, etc. you can replace coconut with water yes. No watermelon juice

  445. i had a bowl of water melon 1/2- 1 inch pieces in brkfst..and a 180 ml green tea without sugar…is dat fyn….goinu have an orange in mrng snack….my stomach is so full i cant even have a sip of water…is it necessary we drink 2 glass water aftr evry food….cant we leave a gap of may be an hr or so and den tk water…..

  446. hello! today is day 1 for me and it started at 415am. So far I am just fine. No hunger pangs yet. Drank plenty of water and have been munching on watermelon, canteloupe and cucumbers. Used some pepper for seasoning on the cucumbers. My work colleague recommended this diet for me but on the copy she gave me the soup recipe is different. it calls for 28oz of water, 4 pkts of lipton’s french onion soup mix, 6 onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and green peppers. Is this correct or should i use the one given on this website? Really hoping I can do this because I don’t have too good a history with sticking with diets!!

    • I only help or support what’s found on this site. Keep in mind on our site you don’t need the soup mix, use your own spices and herbs.

  447. Hi

  454. Hi

    Can I take cooked Vegtables with less oil like spinach or gourd with salt n lemon or I had to take raw or boiled one.
    Also it is good to see that u r giving special attention to every one n giving replies. Awaited yr response..thanks

    • NO NO on honey, no milk either, honey is pure fructose
      Taking meds is up to you. Keep in mind if your body is that reliant on sugar you need to cut it.

      Water with watermelon? no but if you must up to you. really can affect the diet.
      yes on veg, tiny oil is OK

      Always happy to help :)

      • Hi
        Thnx for the reply. actually yestetday I was feeling little low so had tea with milk but w/out honey.
        Day l was OK.had lots of fruit.coconut water n wonder soup.its day -2 planning to tske green tea w/out sugar.
        Let’s see.. hope for the best.

  455. Hi,
    Can I have green tea during this diet?

  456. yes no sweetener

  457. Can we have GREEN TEA whilst doing this diet? Reply urgent!

  458. Can i have coffee/Tea, and work out like taking steps to go to 7 th floor?

  459. And am a vegetarian, so can i replace chapati with beef on 5th day?

    • No, never, bread has little to know nutritional value, junk to the body. It certainly is no meat replacement. Better find a better protein replacement, bread is not, this is a no wheat diet.

        Walk in the park with kiddo as my exercise – not too hard

        Personal experience : – not feeling, grapes and pears are good during first day, as they have too much sugar content – could have tried oranges instead

        I weighed 73 kg in the morning – now, I have weighed n my weight is 72 kg precise. All excited for Day 2

  472. Hi, weigh 64 Kg Tomorrow is my fist day for diet what can I do for please

  474. Hi , my age 35 my weight 64,I lost my weight I am housewife ,please help

  475. CW: 64.9kg.
    day 1 :
    1cup of diced apple
    1cup of diced watermelon
    1cup of diced honey dew
    1cup of diced papaya
    6 grapes

  476. i wanna lose 10kgs which from 64kg to 54-55 kg i’ll be happy with that.

  477. On my 3rd day of gm diet as my marriage is by next week i m trying very hard to reduce. My mom is against this as the mrg is nearing. I weight 78 kgs. She gives me a little rice in a bowl. Is it fair to have rice ? i had steamed rice on day 1 and a little of the normal rice on Day 2..would tis affect this gm session ?
    Any idea..? people pls wish me .. i need to reduce atleast 3 kgs this week :)

    • Congrats on your wedding, yes it can affect you to have rice when we say not to, you have to actually stick to this plan please.

  478. Okies thanks :)

  479. After completing diet plan, can I have processed food once or twice. will it be ok. I have to because of some family party.

    • I can’t say never, it takes time to go that route for most. I eat meat, veg, fruit and that’s it (veg include good starches and carbs like plantains, potato, yams and squashes). You have to try and go gluten free and sugar free to me, that’s a great start.

      • and what about cakes,bread, cheeze if i take one day.

        • 2 things. 1) If you have gluten issues, just one tiny bit of it will set you back months. 2) Are these foods nutrient dense? Are they good for you? Will they help you lose weight? At some point to me the mind set has to change. If not a little turns to more. Just that much can cause weight gain and issues so be careful.

  480. Day 1
    Breakfast:
    -Bowl of papaya
    Snack:

  482. Tomarrow onwards am planning to start GM diet..Am 68 kg now

  483. Hi All,

    I am on to GM Diet from Today.

    I have a question. I am so used to having coffee and Tea during the day. Can I have 1 or 2 glass of coffee/tea during the diet. Please advise.

    Gururaj SY

  484. Thanks a lot Sir. I am at 80kgs. Fingers crossed. Hoping for the best. Can Egg be consumed without Yellow part on any of the days as I am a Vegie but eat only Egg.

    • no, just as a meat replacement, if you have read that elsewhere, really bad idea. You can have the whole egg when replacing meat.

  485. I’m realy over weight.. i weigh in at 133kgs and standing 6’3″ tall im planning to start the GM Diet.. i already have a gym workout that allows me to burn about maybe 1000cals do you think it will be too much considering my health to burn that much when following the GM diet?

    • Be careful over working out, consider HIT or Burst training. Better for your body. You will be OK, day 1 and 2 maybe lighten your workout load a little, see how you feel.

  486. can i drink green team during this diet plan

  487. after messing up my diet on day 4 last week by following some site that said it was okay to eat 8 bananas :/ i decided to start again this week. ill be sure to run through everything so I don’t make any more mistakes. can i add a little salt to my veggies and as for the gm soup i was thinking of using a vegetable stock pot to give it more flavour? and what day am I meant to introduce the soup into the diet?

    • As much water as you drink on this plan, you have to have salt, so yes salt on the food is fine, as is lots of other spices and herbs. have at it. Veg stock is OK as well. This plan can be great for lots of folks. The key is that it really helps propel you into a more natural way of eating cutting processed foods, sugar, wheat and so on. The soup can be eaten any day.

  488. btw im 5’2 and weigh 59kg. im wondering if this plan is more effective for heavier people? can i lose up to 3kg? thats my ideal weight…

  489. I am Gonna start the gm diet from ommorow Hope it will work for me.

  490. day 1
    25 minutes walk to the supermarket to get fruits. should have walked back but with those heavy fruits and considering that I was pretty light headed from hunger I took the bus…
    had an apple on my way home.
    had a late breakfast (more like brunch): mixed fruit salad consisting an apple, half of a small papaya, pineapple chunks, watermelon and very few pieces of melon(not a big fan of melon) and a cup of green tea(no milk or sugar) with slices of fresh lemon.
    snack: an apple, 1 mango, 1 kiwi
    lunch/dinner: 2 kiwis, 2 apples

  491. I am 70 KG today, and started my GM diet. Let us see how well it goes. I would like to loose weight to 65 KG.

  492. Hi,

    I am 92 KG, started GM today,, let see how it goes.. Planning to loose atleast 5 KG.

    Thanks,
    Caroly

  493. Hi I started this diet on Monday but cheated a lot so I decided to start a fresh again today.
    Morning I had – 1 pear, peach 1 small mango slice
    Afternoon – 3 coconut water with patla malai in it. I had no other option bt was soo frightened to b hungry. Do u think I am doing it right or should i break it & start later.
    Pls respond

    • Understandable on starting over. What is patla malai? You should never be hungry, you can have the soup when you feel hungry.

  494. Can i skip any of snacks or mid break in diet, is it ok?

  495. This is the third time I am trying this diet.
    First time when I tried this diet before 9 years I was 23 kgs lesser than what I am now. Almost first day I ate only watermelon and fell sick for a week. Then second time I reached up to 2nd day and felt very sick with lots of headache. So, I never attempted again. After my marriage I gained around 9 kgs, so before my daughter I did lots of workout and with balanced dieting, I lost around 8 kgs. But after my delivery I piled up around 20 kgs. I attempted many times to do workout but I was not consistent. I lost the habit of eating fruits and raw veg salads. Almost for 1 year I stopped thinking about my weight. I just wanted accept my body as is and develop some healthy habits. Still I couldn’t get a regular habit of doing some workout. Though I workout once in a while. I was literally feeling very tired and got diagnosed with Vitamin B12, Vitamin D and Iron deficiency. For the past one month I have been taking supplements for these deficiency. I am feeling bit energetic.By next week I am going for some yoga + siddha based treatment program. For that I wanted to prepare my body and tune my tongue to eat more fruits and vegetables and stop/reduce tea. Yesterday I started doing this diet. I quite successfully finished it. My aim is to successfully finish this diet program. Few things wanted to keep in mind
    1. Not to feel guilt, in case if I do some cheating
    2. Doesnt want to be so strict immediately(especially with Tea, I didn’t want to have caffeine withdrawal symptoms)( May be in my further weeks, I will try to avoid slowly.)
    3.No starving.
    4. Be prepared, to feed with the right item veg/fruit as per the diet plan.

    Yesterday(1st day), I had Muskmelon, Watermelon, Apple, Pear, Mango, few slices of banana.
    I had my morning tea as usual. In my office I had green tea without sugar. Evening by 4 o’clock, started to have headache. But I hold my breath and went home and had one Mango. Then made veg soup(few beans, carrot, cabbage, small onion, ridge gourd, two mushroom, salt, pepper, rasam powder) Had the soup for dinner. Soup was my final saviour. Next day morning I checked my weight, I was one kg less..

    Today(2nd day), As usual started with Tea. Had few baked sweet potato and Potato fingers with sat, pepper, olive oil. Then had soup during mid meal. Lunch okra(made in oven few drops of oil salt pepper), cucumber, green leaves steamed with salt and pepper. after 1 hr had carrot and green tea without sugar. I didn’t feel hungry much today. I am very comfortable.

    For sure I didn’t want to check weight after each day. End of the program I should feel light and my tongue should have got tuned to eating veggies and fruits. Thats all I want. I am sure, if I consistently follow some good eating habits, I will be healthy and as side effect I will lose weight(IE how much ever my body can). I will try to follow this GM diet(slightly my own version) every month. Let see what’s happening to me.

    After seven days, I will keep you people posted, how I am feeling.

    Thanks for the wonderful diet plan and support.

  496. 2nd day – completed. I feel much better and comfortable to continue the diet.

    Started 3rd day, with fruits and veggies. I have prepared grated beetroot(cooked), ridge gourd and tomato(cooked), raw carrots, mango(cut), will buy fruit bowl (with melons from office cafeteria)

  497. Sir I wanted to know will it effect my weight loss if I skipped 1 fruit of the evening snack on day 1??

  498. Is cigarettes allowed during the gm diet?

    • to me never, sorry. You need to understand how they affect your bodies long term ability to lose and maintain good weight.

  499. I wanted to know that will it effect my weight loss if on day 3 lunch I took vegetables mixed in yogurt with some salt and red chilli powder in it…??

    • spices, herbs, salt, pepper are all great, any other changes yes can affect you. Well except swapping out fruits and veg for some that are more local to you.

  507. Hi…
    Had tried this diet previously but could’nt sustain for more than a day. Once again going to try this from tomorrow. Hope I complete it this time… :)

  508. Hi,
    i started gm diet yesterday with 75 kg and next day i.e day 2 i was 74.2 in the morning and evening when i checked my weight it was 75.4 kg ,y ?
    day 1 :- i had as many fruits as possible from morning to evening but night i had 2 digestive biscuts
    day 2 :- i had cooked veggies i.e beans ,ladysfinger, and wonder soup till evening

    • never check your weight unless you have just woken up and gone to the bathroom. if you check in the evening the weight will vary due to water intake, food intake, the fact you may need to go to the bathroom and so on.

      day 1: those digestive biscuits and a weight gainer by the way, just an FYI, they have no redeeming health value at all.

      day2: beans? where is the morning potato? your not even following this plan? Sorry I cannot help you then, you are clearly just doing what you like.

  522. On 1 st day can i eat graps n pineapple n strwberry

  523. Hi.. I’m going to start my diet.. Is there any substitute for tomato and soya? i am allergic to them. Please suggest some substitute.

    Thanks…

    • tomato, just pick another veg, soya, I cannot stand it, you need protein to replace beef, curd, legumes/beans will work. you need a little good fat as well when replacing beef. Good luck :)

  524. can I eat fish on 2nd day or am i ruining my diet , if not can I eat any animal protein everyday , may i eat beans
    why can’t I see my comments plz help!!

    • your comment is here, no you cannot stray from the plan, no legumes or fish. Fish is fine when replacing beef. or beans can repalce beef.

  525. Finished my first cycle a week before n I lost 2 kgs after lots of cheating. I m starting my 2nd cycle tomorrow hopefully with no cheating this time..

  526. I cannot eat banana’s on fourth day. I have never eaten. I cannot smell it also. What can be the replacement for it? Please suggest. I have started my first day

  527. Any specific fruits which have sodium pottasium?

    • sure, it’s not so much about that with bananas, I would try and match the amount of carbs, bananas are high in them, so whatever you eat try and eat enough to equal the carb equivalent to 4 bananas.

  528. Can i have chikko shake or chikoo/strawberry/apple?

    • no, please just try and follow this plan, you cannot drink shakes with sugar and ice cream in them, unless you want to gain weight that is. Sorry.

  529. ok, only chikko and milk can i take?
    Instead of banana

  530. Can i have my tonic while in diet days?

  531. Sir,, Can i take yogurt with brown rice… for day 5 & 6… for all 3 times i.e. breakfast,lunch and dinner?????

  532. My Mom is 58 years of age. She had been operated on one knee (Knee replacement operation). Is it OK for her to do GM diet? Her other knee which is not operated is not doing so good too. Can she still eat bananas and potatoes during this diet?

  533. Me and my cousin will be starting GM diet this week. I just wanted to clarify some doubts regarding this diet:

    1.) Are we really not allowed to take cigarettes during this diet?
    2.) We are allowed to drink coffee (without creamer or milk) and tea as long as the sweetener is Stevia, right?

    I want to clarify because caffeine and cigarettes have been part of my daily life and with the gm diet side effects, i feel that it will be too hard for me if I won’t be taking both of them for 1 full week. Please answer soon. I really am eager to lose weight.

  534. 1) you should never want them, they alter your bodies ability to lose weight long term, beware. not to mention other health concerns.
    2) correct :)
    you can have those plain with stevia.

  535. I thinking of starting the GM diet the only thing which is stopping me is Banana, no matter how hard I try I can’t eat bananas. Is there anything else I can repace banana for day 4.please help

  536. 11th August.
    Started Day 1.

  537. Dear author,
    I’m starting my gm diet starting today….
    Just wanted to know if i can replace water with green tea…. and yeah!! No matter how hard i try i can’t take tomatoes…. what alternative shud i eat…??

    • just pick another veg maybe 1 serving of fruit. You can have a couple of glasses of green tea, no sweetener unless it’s stevia

  538. Hi Author,
    I posted my comments yesterday, that is on 15th aug, but don’t know why it is not showing….so I am posting again
    It is my first day today, 16th aug
    8:30am – 1 apple+ 1 small bowl of diced papaya+ 1 glass water
    11:30am-I bowl of water-melon + 2 glasses of water

    Shall have a pear for lunch at about 2 pm

    am feeling good so far, though I was really tense about whether I’ll be able to pull through. Let’s see how it goes…

    I have some questions;
    1) Can we have Bottle gourd on day 2 and can it be cooked in a little sunflower oil (or is olive oil the only allowed oil for the diet?)
    2)day 1 is only fruit, so is the vegetable wonder soup allowed?

    Please answer my queries….hope it shows now

    • Sunflower oil first is not at all the same as olive, It’s bleached, over processed, bad for you, full of Omega 6’s and normally rancid and toxic to the body. It’s an industrial oil just like vegetable oil, canola, oil etc. use pure olive, coconut or palm.

      Gourd is fine, but not too much, you need a variety of veg if possible

      yes on day 1, only fruit and wonder soup.

      Hope it all goes well :)

      • Dear Author,
        I had a small carrot and some peas along with other boiled veggies like beans and cauliflower for dinner on day 2, as I did not kow that these veggies had to be avoided. Would it have gone awfully wrong for me? 1 have lost abt 1.2 kg at the end of day 2.

        Also, is coconut water allowed on days other than day 1?….I had abt quarter of a glass today, when having severe headache…felt so good after having it!

        Am feeling extremely positive about this diet. Thanks for your response earlier….please answer these questions too. Thanks in advance!

        • Problem with peas corn and carrots, peas and carrots higher in natural sugar, not at all nutrient dense and they are all that people ever seem to eat. Corn, technically a grain, 95% of it genetically modified and nutrient dead as well.

          Beans area legume, not a veg. Please no beans, they would be a meat replacement for vegetarians.

          Coconut water is good, a glass or 2 a day can really help replenish needed minerals that over drinking water can flush out. You are doing well though, keep going :)

  539. Dear Author,

    I want to start with this plan as soon as possible. Just want to know that what are the alternates for the fruits or other stuff which is right now out of season or not available. To name a few would be watermelon, muskmelon or chicofruit etc. Could you please suggest the alternates so that the diet plan yields fruitful results.

    Regards

    • It’s tough, just do what you can locally and you will be OK. for the veg, try and stay away from corn, peas and carrots. zucchini and squash are in season here now for example. You don’t have to do melons, just pick a variety of good fruit and roll with it.

  540. Dear Author,
    I am 28-Female, Height 5″4′, weight as on 18th Aug:66kgs
    I am extremely frustrated with my weight and the uneven fat deposition and have therefore started GM Diet yesterday-18th Aug. I have religiously followed the plan for the first day. Below is the details:
    Woke up at 8:00am and did yoga and jogging for 20mins
    Food: 8:00am-8:30am => A cup of diced apple

  541. PLEASE IGNORE THE ABOVE POST
    Dear Author,

    Woke up at 8:00am and did yoga and jogging for 20mins
    Food: 8:30am-9:00am => A cup of diced apple + 2glasses of water
    10:30am – 11:00am => A bowl of raw papaya + 2glasses of water
    1:00pm – 1:30pm => A bowl of watermelon + 2glasses of water
    4:00pm to 4:30pm => One orange + 2glasses of water
    8:30pm – 9:00pm => One bowl of musk melon + 2glasses of water
    In the whole day I drank a total of 5litres of water.
    Before I started yesterday, I weighed 66kgs. I weighed again this morning and it was 65.5kgs.

    My question is, am I doing right, or should I have had more weight shred off. Please advise.
    Also, I did not find brocolli, thus will have boiled cauliflower for dinner tonight, please confirm if this is fine

    • On the veg, make subs as you need that seem in the same veg family. NO corn or peas though.

      Your day 1 looks fine. NEVER over drink water. It depletes the minerals in your body. It can be really bad for you. 1st rule drink when you are thirsty, When detoxing on a plan like this, make sure you do 8 to 10 glasses. 5 liters is just too much. Add herbal tea if you like no sweetener unless pure stevia. Add a glass of pure coconut water. and add lemon to your water if you like. Hang in there :)

      If you are holding weight unevenly, it likely means you will have an underlying health issue such as high cortisol levels. Hence you need to be on a healing nutrient dense diet. give up sugar, gluten, bad oils and look to your food as real fuel.
