GM Diet Day 2

Like the first day of the GM diet weight loss plan, the second day would entail another adjustment for the individual in terms of food intake. The first day of the diet plan required a strict fruit-only diet, while the second day would be limited only to vegetables.

All sorts of vegetables may be consumed on the Day 2 of the GM diet, and these range from green leafy vegetables to starchy crops. This is to boost the fiber intake of the body while regulating the sugar content from the first day’s consumption, and at the same time foster metabolic processes.

Preparing the Body for Day 2

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

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

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

GM Diet Day 2 Breakfast

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

GM Diet Day 2 Lunch

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

GM Diet Day 2 Dinner

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

GM Diet Day 2 Midday Snacks and Beverages

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

Sample Diet Plan for Day 2 of GM Diet

Breakfast (8:00-9:00 AM)

1 cup boiled potato and 2 glasses of water

Mid Morning (10:30-11:00 AM)

1 bowl of cabbage or red lettuce (raw) and 1-2 glasses of water

Lunch (12:00-1:00 PM)

1 cucumber, 1 tomato and ½ boiled beet and 2 glasses of water

Afternoon (4:00-5:00 PM)

2 tomatoes or 1 cup cherry tomatoes and 2 glasses of water

Dinner (7:00-8:00 PM)

Boiled broccoli, cauliflower and asparagus with salt and spices and 2 glasses of water

  21. 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.

    I do not have any scales at home so I cannot see how much I have lost but I plan to buy some on Friday. I knew roughly what I weighed beforehand.

    Good luck everyone!!!!

Today is my 2nd day for the 4rth time trying and hoping that i’ll loose more weight. I have followed this diet pretty accuratly accept i didnt drink 10 glasses of water a day, i would say i tried drinking atleast 6 glasses.

  68. Hi all
    Its time to review the GM Diet plan.
    I would say this the awesome diet for losing those extra pounds and also a cleansing system for your body. I did GM Diet 2 months back.Everyone may be

    surprised why I am reviewing so late. I wanted to see if I gain weight after the diet. But it really works. I actually lost almost 8-9 pounds ofcourse with

    some regular Yoga and exercise. You will definetly will maintain the weight. I would like to share my diet menu for 7 days.
    Day 1 “weight 129.1 pounds” —For me day 1 was very good coz I love eating fruits.
    Breakfast – 1 cup of diced apples ,Mid morning Snack – 1 Orange ,Lunch 1 bowl of watermelon ,Afternoon Snack 1 kiwi fruit,Dinner 1 bowl of melon
    10-12 glasses of water whole day

    Day 2 “weight 125.7 pounds”—-Breakfast 1 boiled sweet potato
    For Snack I had 1 bowl of cabbage , For lunch I made a salad with Cucumber,Tomato,Lettuce,Beet with a pinch of salt and pepper(I took a pinch of salt

    as I feel low without salt.).For evening snack I had 1 tomato, For Dinner I had the wonder soup.
    10-12 glasses of water. I cheated by just having one M&M. I think this much is allowed :)

    Day 3 “weight 125.2 Pounds” not much difference—-For Breakfast I had 1 apple, Mid-snack Some grapes , For lunch I had the Salad (same as day2) ,

    Evening-snack 1 small bow of Mango,
    and For dinner I had the 1/2 cup od wonder soup and some salad(for a change)
    10-12 glasses of water

    Day 4 -”weight 124 pounds” —This day was a bit hard. Ofcourse I like bananas but I think my body was not prepared to take banana.The diet says 7-8

    bananas But I could have only 2
    For breakfast I took a cup of Milk with a banana. ,I skipped my midday snack as my stomach was little upset. Then in lunch I had 1 bowl of Wonder

    soup. Evening Snack I had a banana and for dinner I had the wonder soup. 10-12 glasses of water

    Day 5 “weight 123.2 pounds”— Now from day 5 its really easy , only thing was we should 6-7 tomatoes.
    Breakfast — sprouted Moong with 1 chopped tomato , Mid day snack 1 tomato with a dash of salt , Lunch –1 cup cooked brown rice ,chopped tomatoes

    with 4-5 pieces of Tofu ,(i am vegeterian so this was the best source for Protien) , Evening Snack 1 tomato , Dinner I had wonder soup with some brown

    rice & tomatoes. 10-12 glasses of water

    Day 6 ” Weight 121 pounds ” For breakfast I had veggie Salad , Mid day snack 1/2 bowl of wonder soup , For lunch I prepared a kind of puloa with brown

    rice , Steamed brown rice with sprouts and veggies with very little olive oil , salt , pepper and lomon(Tastes goood) ., for Evening snakc I had 1 apple ,

    and for dinner I had wonder soup and the leftover puloa which i prepared for lunch. 10-12 glasses of water

    Day 7 This day was not much to do . as this was end of the day I was excited to see the difference .
    For breakfast I had 1 apple , For lunch Moong dal koshimbiri(the recipe mentioned in this website) , For snack I had some grapes and evening snack i

    skipped bcoz I was not that hungry, For Dinner I again prepared the puloa(which I had on Day6 ) .10-12 glasses of water
    And my final weight was 119.7 …I was happy with the results.
    I was not overweight but wanted to have a little change in my diet…. I did not starve any day when ever I waas hungry I had some thing according to the

    day plan.Ofcourse I did in between cheating like having one M&M , just grabbing one single chip , or some dry fruits. But I think this is okay to control

    your cravings. And also 2 times I had tea without sugar and very little milk(just 1 tbsp) . :)
    And believe me you will start eating healthy food , more veggies and fruits.
    But one important thing you have keep going with your excersise , yoga or whatever your daily workout is ,this makes you not to gain weight again.
    I am starting this diet again today .
    All the best to everyone for a Healty You. :)

    • Hii Happygo,

      I liked your diet plans, the way you explained. Thanks for sharing this.
      but can you tell the results about your 2nd time GM diet how much you reduce that time. Actually i have done it before but I hv lost only 2kg in the entire week. Today is my 2nd day my weight is 71.4 kg & yesterday it was 71.6 Kg. I am following it in very strict way. Yesterday I just had tea bcz I have got migraine pain & it was unbearable. I do not know how much I will be loosing.

      Can any one tell me what if I stop this plan after day 5th bcz I have a function & I have to be there so I am lil confuse. Please suggest some more recipes for Day 1,2 & 3rd.

      Thanks.

  69. I have noticed someone saying that drinking warm water will help with throat infection. Instead drink as much water as cold (ice) as possible. That will kill the germs. These germs flourish in warm environments. I have given this advise to many of my friends and they all agree that it works.

  70. hi,
    Today is is my second day I had boiled potato with verty little salt and red chilli.
    Lunch: Cabbage and bioled spinach with onions with few drops of mustard oil.

  71. But eating spinach is not very easy its very tasteless but some how i manage. Hopefully things would work.
    And i am doing 20-30 minutes running and brisk walking daily.
    Hopfully running would not increase my weight. As i am in practice of doing running from past couple of days before starting GM.
    If any one has suggestion please share.

  72. I do smoke 1-2 cigratte while performing GM diet is this ok. As no where mentioned about smoking.

  73. Hi this is my 1st day of gm diet and more over this is my second cycle of the diet
    On my 1st cycle I reduced nearly 4 kg so am happy with the gm diet thanks a lot for gm

  74. hi first time on gm diet i hope it will work for me!! i weigh 52kgs. my target is 45kgs..

  75. this is day 2! so far so good can’t wait for day 5 to eat a nice piece of juicy steak YUM!

  76. There is a lot of rubbish on this site, there are a lot of deviations from the original GM diet Eg…Mangoes and TC water…there is no mention of the wonder soup either …

  77. IHi,I am on day 2 and I got fever.Is there any problem in taking medicine (like paracetamol)during diet?

  78. The second day was even 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 itself.

    Please don’t stretch much work if you are following this GM diet else you might get fever or fall unconscious.

    Wishing you all success in this plan

  100. hey i am planning to start this diet tomorrow.. it interests me so much…pl suggest me an alternative for asparagus and broccoli as I dont find them at my place.
    Thnaksin advance

  101. asparagus and broccoli substitutes? You can do cauliflower, really anything similar…

  102. I had 2 idlis with sambar instead of potatos..:( is it ok??? please some one reply me asap.

  103. Sambar, not great for using as far as I know. Be careful with substitutes if possible…

  104. can ssum1 pls temme if barley water can be taken along wid diet??

  105. No you cannot do barley water :)

  106. How abt roasted chana during the diet

  107. no roasted chana :)

  108. And salt during the diet

  109. seasonings are fine…

  110. hi
    i had besan cheela on dahy 2….is it okey or should u start over??

  111. Tough call, totally a preference here. But best results are from folks doing 7 full days with no mess ups. Hang in there :)

  112. I m on day 3 .
    third day I ended up eating a little bit of chips (8)
    Do I have to start again?

    Is it ok to use mustard? I wld take drop of oil , crackle mustard in Thera d add shredded cabbage and salt.
    Is that ok?

  113. chips? up to you but you may just want to see it through and try and stay on track for the rest, Traditional mustard should be fine, there is no oil in it.

  114. Iam loving the program. 1st Fruit day – by end of the day I started hating Fruits. Today 2nd – Vegetable day- Iam sure end of the day I will hate Vegetable.

    For sure I feel some difference. Iam going to continueee….

  115. I am allergic to Potatoes. What can i have instead of potatoes on Second day???

  116. try plantains or yams/sweet potatoes? but I assume the last 2 you would be allergic to as well.

  117. I’m already in Day 2. is it okay to sleep during the day?

  118. Sleeping during the day during the diet may hinder you some. But overtime it is a huge problem, your circadian rhythms get messed up, you need to sleep at night and preferably in a completely dark room. A day or so though you should be OK, I have had to do it before and been OK…

  119. can i eat mangoes on day 1 ? can i eat brawn bread ? eggs on which day are recommened? and in pakistan here r ni brown rice avaliable can i eat white ? can i drink diet coke? plzzzzz answer me i am in trouble
    \

  120. Mangos OK, Bread no, for eggs read the plan, white is fine, no way never, never and no again on diet Coke – talk about ruining your health. There is nothing diet about diet soda, they cause more weight gain and issues than regular soda.

  121. thanks a lot but my last question is can white rice substitute brown

  122. I said white is fine :)

  123. My day 1 and 2 were successful. Not feeling hungry at all .
    I’m wondering if coconut meat from fresh coconut serves well in a “fruit day” ex Day 1 or 3?

  124. Be careful Rae on coconut meat, I am a huge fan of it anytime (it is so healthy and does not affect your liver negatively), but on the diet it does have added fat. Not that this is a no fat diet, rather a balance of it.

  125. can we hav salt on 2nd day

  126. spices are fine, including salt just never over do it.

  127. hi admin,
    already i finished ist day ,today i am going to 2nd day ,is it ok during the day sleep,because i have 9mths baby so night sleeping very tough.

  128. Yes on the sleep during the day, you have to get rest. Ideally no, but let’s face with a new baby ideal is out the window. So yes do sleep :)

  129. hi admin,

    is there any alternative for skimmed
    milk.

  130. Lite coconut milk or almond milk maybe?

  131. Hello,
    Started day 1 … It is hard,but managing.
    Can anybody tell whether the wonder soup can be taken on all days of the diet ?
    If not , on which days can I take it ?
    Also , can I add steamed cones to the diet ? If yes on whcih day ?
    Thanks.

  132. Soup all days fine. Cones? Not familiar enough with those, I would say no, just wait until you’re done.

  133. today was my second day. had boiled potatoes in the breakfast and salad in the lunch. for dinner i had tomatoes and beans. is that okay? felt gud.no headaches and no craving. feeling energetic.

  134. yesterday was my first day . had two apples and orange and a little bit of melon and loads of water. today was my second day. had boiled potatoes in the breakfast and salad in the lunch. for dinner i had tomatoes and beans. is that okay? felt gud.no headaches and no craving. feeling energetic. had water but not more than 4-5 glasses.

  135. Sejal, seems like you are making your own version of this, you barely ate on day 1, not sure what to say or how to help. Sorry

  136. Started day 2, lost 1.2 kg on first day..:)

  137. on day 2…. its very difficult.
    having severe headache… having a body pain in the morning.

    but feeling light. any substitute for cabbage… n cabbage we can have boiled ? right ?
    loved first day… with melon and apple…

    I will not QUIT…

  138. will there be any hair loss, following this diet ?

  139. Hair loss? no :) This is a very normal eating plan….

    hang in there, when you give up dates, sugars, wheat, grains and such this detox feeling happens.

  140. Day 2. I’ve lost 1.3kg from day 1.
    I started my day 2 with a bowl of broccoli and baby carrots. And had a bit of light vinegar salad dressing.
    Late noon I had a bowl of raw cucumber with light vinegar dressing.
    At the evening, I m gonna have boiled broccoli and cooked white radish.
    I m looking forward the third day that I can eat fruits again.

  141. Hi
    Day 2 I have salad for breakfast
    I will have my baked potato for lunch
    Can I add cheese to the potato ? ??

  142. Day 2
    On my salad I add some vinegar and olive oil is this ok?
    How about avocado is it ok to add some to the salad?

    • Be careful, whether natural or not adding lots of extra fat here. I do not recommend, however I do after the diet. These are good fats. You do need a little fat so I would just use a little of one or the other.

  143. Can I have corn on the hob for day 2 please?

  144. *cob, sorry!!

  145. Hi everyone,

    Few days back i was searching for weight loss plans and eventually i landed up here. Was more then motivated to read comments and so started this diet. Today is my Day 2, getting headache and dry mouth,although drinking a lot of water. Wish me luck and suggest any workout plan for maximum weight loss during this program. I didn’t follow any exercise routine but taking a walk of around 3 kms …is that enough. please suggest.

    Regards to all.

    • Detox is natural on diets…. Workout, I am big on Burst or HIT style training. Workup to a good workout and don’t overdo it! YouTube will have some good videos on a good plan.

  146. Hello GM Dieters!

    Today is my second day and it was not as hard as yesterday. So I’d like to share today’s menu with you:
    Breakfast: 2 medium baked potatoes with a little bit of butter
    Glass of water

    Snack:
    Around 13 cherry tomatoes

    Lunch:
    Salad, with tomatoes, cucumber, onions, garlic and lettuce, with a little bit of olive oil and salt

    Snack:
    Cucumber

    Dinner:
    Steamed: carrots, onions, garlic, broccoli and cabbage ( + salt, pepper, basil, parsley, some olive oil)
    *And around 2 litres of water throughout the day*

    Admin, one question please, are marrows and mushrooms allowed for tomorrow evening please? I am planning to stir fry them without the oil obviously. Can I spray the pan with low fat spray please? And by the way, thank you for always being so quick and polite when answering my questions!

    • I think you have got a good list, marrows fine :) Food sprays are bad, use real food or oil, use maybe a little coconut oil, try and get away from sprays. GOOD LIST :)
      Happy to try and help.

  147. Hi,
    I am on day2, day1 was Ok..felt a bit hungry at times but managed…
    Had boiled potato with some tomato n chilli in breakfast
    small amount of sweetcorn as a snack
    and salad (cucumber, radish and carrots) in lunch
    Can I have home made sweet corn soup adding bolied beans/carrots in it for Dinner?

    • not big on sweet corn, try and limit…. No on the sweet corn soup, but you can spice up how you like some veggies similar to the wonder soup and eat that.

  148. Thanks for the advice,
    Had wondersoup in dinner… though felt hungry but I survived…Day 3 morning now and feeling better than yesterday :)

  149. Hi Admin – please advice is its ok to use a lil oil and salt for a stirfry on day 2 and 3

    Thanks

    Ravi

  150. Hello,

    I just finished my day 2 dinner and I should say that I’m feeling good. I gotta tell you that I did have lil head ache and felt kinda sleepy,but I guess it’s part and parcel of this game. I had boiled potato (toppings: pepper+lemon), had wonder soup, salad for lunch (carrots+ lettuce +cucumber+chickpeas+ sweet corn) and wonder soup and the same salad again for dinner. I am not sure about including sweetcorn, but I kinda took a chance with it.

    I checked my weight on the morning of Day 2 and I was super happy with what I saw on my digital weighing machine. ta da! I lost close to 4 pounds and my wife lost about 3.2 pounds. Is this natural to loose 4 pounds on day 1 alone? or did I mess up something bad in my stomach?

    Can anyone who has finished the complete diet comment on losing weight pattern for all 7 days? Not sure if the losing pattern is gonna be the same for everyone, but I would like to know please.

    Thanks a bunch!!

    • Hello PraVin…
      Weight will fluctuate person to person. That is not unusual to lose that much day 1… everyone is different, this is a cleansing diet done right keep that in mind as you come out of it how you will eat. I never weigh day to day, only day 1 and then after day 7. Keeps me focused on the goal of eating healthy rather than just a number, but that’s what works for me :)

  151. Hai can i have cooked vegitables with masala on day 2,3,6,7(oilfree)?

  152. Hai can i have lemontea with honey during gm diet

  153. Hai wondersoup must or not?

    Snack: Cherry tomatoes

    Dinner: Steamed vegetables ( carrot, little peas, lettuce. broccoli, garlic, onions) + olive oil

  157. i am 35 & started GM Diet on Monday…i successfully managed 2 days with fruits & veggies. Had green tea only during these days. Added salt in my veggies on day two & little of sweet corn also in my soup. I have lost only 1 kg. in two days…is it fine?

    Can i have any other veggie on 5th day….shall i exercise also to loose more……

    • I am confused, sorry. Seems like you are not following the plan at all, green tea no sweetener is fine to me. Exercise is helpful…

  158. can we take cottage cheese raw on day 3

  159. Thank u!! again i strtd diet nw day 2 :-) so happy dis time its vry easy

  160. Those who have completed GM Diet , could you please confirm if we will regain the weight lost after some time . I am planning to start from this friday onwards

    • Why would you not, if you don’t change your lifestyle after. NO diet, not one will help you there, sorry.

    • Yes. you will regain weight. and it is highly likely that you may regain more than you lost. ‘controlled diet’ that you have to restrict your diet as mentioned in these articles..

  161. On Day 2 right now!! Is it to have Vegetable soup (Homemade) on Day 2?

  162. Wonder soup truly wonderful… People try it, I am in my Day 2, and the soup is delicious, my sis told me to strain and drink the juice alone, but I thought i needed more finre so I ate it up with the small chunks of veggies.. Truly delicious.. I am now going to make it for my kids too.

  163. Hi,

    done with day 2… just lost 0.5kgs :(
    today i had boiled potato with butter and pepper, boiled peas, very less corns, cabbage, half tomato, half cucumber and green tulsi tea without sugar.. and now as i m starving so just having one orange at 12am.
    just wanted to check can i have at least one glass of milk everyday??

  164. Can I have fruits on day 6 instead of vegetable?

  165. Thanks for reply…:)

  166. Can anyone plz share the recipe for GM wonder soup?

    and can I have boiled sweet corn during day2?

  167. I am on Day 2, i was very hungry so i had one samosa.. is it ok to continue with the diet plan? what should i do to rectify this cheating..

    • Tough, eat the soup, nobody has to go hungry on this diet unless they are choosing to. However, watch out for emotional hunger fort he more addictive sweets and goodies you were used to.

  168. I am confused after reading the comments for Day5. I cannot eat beaf so planning to replace with egg/chicken

    I am planning to have

    Morning:
    1 tomato and some boiled lentil mixed with spinach
    Mid day snacks: 1 tomato
    Lunch: tomato and wonder soup
    snacks: tomato
    dinner: boiled white rice with chicken and tomato curry (no sugar things. just very little olive oil, onion, tomato, green chilies and coriander along with boiled chicken)

    Is it okay to follow this?

  169. This diet plan helped me in reducing 5-6 kg in 7 days.Although the firts few days are difficult it will b egood if u really go through..

  170. Does it really have to be Lipton for the wonder soup? It’s pretty much expensive in our area.

  171. @admin I am on day two ,,,,,Can i roast the broccoli and cauliflower in a pan after boiling it with very minimal amount of oil.Can i add onions in that…Please let me know ….

  172. roasting fine, a little onion fine, oil, less than a tsp…

  173. @ author, its my day 2 and i’m doing fine. but i could only take 5 glasses of water yesterday. would it affect the final result? i’m worried. today i’m taking 8-10 glasses as recomended. pls rely. thanks in advance

    • 8 to 10 is always what you hear everywhere. I am a big water drinker, other than a little herbal tea, I drink when thirsty, everyone is different. The key here is don’t under drink, meaning for get to. I get busy sometimes and put it off when I actually need to drink something. Spread it out all day, cramming a ton of water in last minutes defeats the purpose as well. So you should be fine, just spread whatever you do drink out over the day :)

  174. i’m in day 6 and lost 3.5kgs…. i cant explain the joy… this is fsntastic.. will post u the final result. 2 more days to go.. thanks admin …

  175. can v hav corn flakes on d second day???

  179. Hello

    Day 2 is tough more than I expected. :|
    Had a baked Potato in morning and Boiled cabbage, carrot and pea cooked in oil less than a tsp with spices for lunch. Now having black coffee and planing to have boiled cauliflower and carrots for dinner. I’m not sure if i’m doing it right or not. I’m CONFUSED! Although its strange I started following the diet plan yesterday only and its really effective but I’m not sure how long will it last. Day before yesterday my weight was 87.9Kgs after workout . Had to skip the gym yesterday due to work and today before workout weight my was 85.5kgs. Wish me luck and let me know if i’m doing something wrong.
    Thanks! :)

  180. Just want to ask where can i buy ready to eat foods/fruits for the GM diet? Because i’m very eager to loose weight but i have no time to prepare all the foods listed in diet menu. Hope you can help me. thanks lot!

    • Up to you, if they have chemicals, too much salt, sugars, bad oils and such this will not work for you. If you mean someone has prepared fresh food for you then fine.

  181. Hi author,

    Today is my third day, n I’m as per GM schedule
    but yesterday I felt very tough , so I had small quantity of rice n beans , then 2 cookie.
    Will i get good result at the end of day 7 if im perfect or shall I start it from next week?

    • Cheating can yes ruin your diet. If you would have told me you cheated with a banana for some fruit I would tend to say you may be just fine. Also eating things like cookies afterwards will only cause weight gain, think more long term here, think lifestyle change.

  182. Hi, i am on my 2nd day and so far has gone great!! but wanted to know whether we can add salt salt to the fruits and vegetable

  183. is black salt/ any other salt/pepper permitted in day 1???

  184. Can I eat mushrooms on the second day?

  185. Hi friends,

    Please advise if I can fry the vegetables little bit in olive oil and sprinkle some salt/pepper rather than having them raw on day 2/ day 3.

  186. Hi author,
    Im taking up this diet plan for the first time. Im doing my Day1 now.
    Please suggest if i can have recipes like Carrot Khosambari or any other vegetable and sprout Khosambari for lunch on Day 2.
    Please suggest If I can have carrot and cucumber along with Cabbage.
    Thanks in advance.

  187. This is my second try of the gm diet. On the first try i completed the 7 days but cheated a little. It was very hard for me because i am a self confessed foodie. At the age of 22 im already 66kgs. So i tried this plan. At the end of the week. I lost 4kgs. I am already happy with the progress :). And now,its my 2nd day of my 2nd try. I survived yesterday easily because i really love fruits especially watermelon :D. Today,its really hard…like my first try. I feel weak and lightheaded. My muscles are aching. But still im determined to finish this. Ill keep you all posted.:)

  188. Another thing. Can i drink alkaline sugarfree coffee. It has 0 fats, 0 calories but 19 grams of carbohydrates.?

  189. Thanks for the super fast reply.:) God bless.:)

  190. Hi i ahve one doubt today is the first day of GM diet so mall on fruits but for tomorrow can i have dal-palak, sprouts(chickpea,kidney beans) in lunch?

  191. Today is my 2nd day,ive put on 1kg on day 1 sadly, i daily eat oats with just warm water,can i continue it with the diet plan,i have already done it for day1 and day 2?its 0calories and high fiber?so is that fine?

    • I would not keep going. You cannot have OATS on this diet!!!!! These grains are really hurting folks and their weight….

  192. Hi author,
    I had done gm diet previous week and lost 3kg, given a three day break n started again.today is my 1st day.
    For my 2nd day breakfast can i add tomatos, onions n salt to the mashed potato(without oil or butter).

    Cheers,
    Hema

    • The veg, salt and spices OK but only a very small tomato. Why would you not do the oil/butter if it says so. It is so very important that you do this diet as we laid out.

      • Thank you for the response, appriciate your concern.I am thinking of using a little oil for salad dressing which i would be taking for the day.
        Cheers,
        Hema

  193. I completed my day 2 of gm diet. I had tea wuth sugar ans then in mid snacks I had boiled potato’s and then in lunch I had tomatoes soup and then had salad with sprouts.in the the evening I had tea with sugar n five whole wheet Marie biscut. In the dinner again I had salad with sprouts. Is it ok plz tell me as I done know. Can I take zero calories sugar. Plz help plzzzzzz

    • Then you not following this diet at all, you are making your own up. Sorry. Biscuits and sugar. No point in moving forward.

  194. Thank you for u r reply but from tomorrow I will not have anything only vegetables and fruits. Just tell me should I start again. Plz tell me

  195. Hi,
    Thank you for the support. I had completed day 2, baked potato as breakfast, in lunch n dinner i had boiled cauliflower n green peas. In between i had the wonder soup (i added few more veg) which was suggested. For tomorrow i.e day3 can i have avacado.

    • Hey Hey, no avocado until after, they are great to eat, just not on this diet, too much fat to throw in right now. But after go for it.

  196. Hi,
    Can we have boiled corn n honey lemon tea/green tea????and what else we can have instead of brown rice..and can we have pulses along with rice or nt..

  197. And also please let me know the side effects of GM diet after the dieting period is over…thanks:)

    • Not sure what that means? the only side effect normally is folks not eating healthy after and gaining weight back. This must be a lifestyle change starter or else.

  198. HI,
    I ‘ve started my 2nd day…..
    breakfast: 1 baked potato with butter,
    mid morning: i skipped
    lunch: 1 carrot, 1 cucumber, 1/4 bowl of chopped cabbage, little salt and pepper and two glasses of water…

  199. can we take butter milk during this diet plan?

  200. I usually have honey with fresh lime in lukewarm water in the morning as the first thing. Is this fine to go hand in hand with GM diet plan?

  201. Can salt be used in the salad and veggies (steam/cook) that is to be had on this diet?

  202. This is the third day of my Gm plan. Second time im doing gm. last time i lost 3 kg. hope this time…loose more. I feel..its a good start for those who..want to lose weight.I was 80 kg..after delivery. started with gm diet…lost 3 kg..then i went for diet and exercise..now im 69. Hope the second time gm plan..will help me to restart my diet plan again..my target is 60. Gm plan is just a kick start for your diet plan.

  203. My 2nd day now, i had 1 boiled sweet potato, since im working i have packed sliced cucumbers&lettuce for 1 meal and boiled broccoli with dried basil and chilli flakes. I still have an extra sweet potato for later. Is this good enough?

  204. Hey, I was just wandering if there is anything I can substitute the afternoon snack (tomatoes) with?

    I am feeling great ! ann cant wait to weigh myself after day 3 :-))

  209. Today is my first day and i consumed one cucumber with melon…will it affect my diet in anyway? As in have i disrupted the schedule or something?

  215. My day-2 just started… had 2 small sized boiled potato, carrot, cucumber & raw beetroot. Can anyone suggest me if i should be in control on quantity or is it fine to have based on hunger ?

    • It can be based on hunger, but only one large potato. Also do not forget the butter or olive oil on it. You need that fat!
