GM Diet Day 3

Day 3, nearly half way through the GM Diet. Things should only get easier now. Day 1 of the GM Diet and to a certain extent, Day 2 can be really hard for some people. On Day 3 of the GM diet weight loss plan, followers are now allowed to eat a combination of fruits and vegetables. There is no limit or restriction to the fruits and vegetables to be consumed on Day 3, although bananas are still not allowed. Followers of the diet plan may find less pressure to keep up with the regimen’s demands, as they have already adjusted their systems to fruit and vegetable intake during the past two days.

During the first three days of the GM diet, it is important to consume only fresh produce, as they contain more nutritional value. Organic harvests are also recommended, although these tend to be more expensive and have lesser taste.

Preparing the Body for Day 3

Preparing for Day 3 isn’t as difficult as that in days 1 and 2; it actually easier to keep up with the dietary requirements in Day 3 as the body is already used to fruit and vegetable intake. In most cases, individuals following the diet experience slight headaches in the succeeding days as they are already allowed to consume meat.

It is likewise encouraged to consume a variety of fruits and vegetables in every meal on Day 3. Having a variety of servings during breakfast, lunch and dinner would not only keep the stomach satiated, but at the same time content as the appetite’s cravings are regulated at lower levels.

It is as well recommended to perform breathing exercises in the morning at the start of Day 3. Doing so will release the tensions garnered from Days 1 and 2, and followers may experience a more relaxed time ahead.

At this stage, followers should have already lost 2-4 lbs. of body mass.

GM Diet Day 3 Breakfast

Breakfast in Day 3 may start light with an apple, but those who are looking for heavier meals may consume melon. When consuming melons for breakfast, it is important to have them supplemented with two glasses of water for better digestion.

GM Diet Day 3 Lunch

The diet regimen on Day 2 may be repeated on Day 3, but with more variety. Tomatoes may be included in lettuce-cucumber salads, but still these should be dressed in olive oil or vinaigrette.

GM Diet Day 3 Dinner

A serving of boiled vegetables would be ideal during Day 3 dinners, and they can be followed up with fruit desserts like watermelon apple.

GM Diet Day 3 Midday Snacks and Beverages

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

Vegetable juice like carrot and tomato juice may be served during evenings so as to satiate the appetite for sweet snacks.

  22. Day 3 is here!! Breakfast – 4 Orange segments, 3 blueberries, a handful of pomegranate seeds and 4 mango segments. Yum :)

    I haven’t weighed myself yet as I don’t have any scales until tonight but I am definitely lighter. I put on a pair of size 14 denim shorts which I could fasten and fitted me perfectly. On Sunday I could not even get them past my thighs!!

    For lunch and snacks today I have made a big melon based salad with a little kiwi fruit, mango and strawberries in too.

    I will then eat vegetables for dinner.

    With it being so warm here I love eating the fresh fruit more so than vegetables.

    How is everyone doing? Well I hope!?

  23. Finished out day 2 and I”m soooo tired (chasing kids and keeping up with lots of tasks today!) I find that if I’m really hungry, I first drink a glass of water and then I work on what to eat. It helps a lot with staying on track.

  24. I’m on 3rd day…. followed the diet as mentioned…but seems to be no weight loss as of now :) Can any one reply ..

  25. can we replace any other fruit or vegetable with cantaloupe because cantaloupe is not available please reply

  29. I am super hungry but I’m so excited to loose weight 3rd day tom.

  30. Can u pls send me the sample menu for GM diet fr day 1 to 7. Thank you.

  31. It says no bananas but nothing about potatos can we have one potato today?

  32. hi today is my 3rd day.i hv not checked the weight,but i feel light.i hope i will reduce at least 2 lg.feeling good.thanks to G M

  33. On my 3rd day, lost 4.3lbs. This is easier than I thought. If I have had hunger pains, I drink more water. The colder the better. I have only eaten melon for my fruit. I have 1 cup of coffee in the morning with half a packet of Truvia. With my veggies, I add an avocado in their to supplement essential fatty acids and protein. I could only eat a little but and felt full. For dinner on Day 2, I had a whole bag of Edaname (sp) with a bit of sea salt at 5pm and was satisfied the rest of the evening and slept great. I woke this morning, Day 3, feeling weak…but as soon as I had my bowl of watermelon, I feel good again.
    I am amazed of the weight loss so far and only 3 days in.
    I am doing this to jump start a life change in my eating habits. It is not only a good cleanse, but it also helps trains your body to want good, clean foods. Cutting out sweets and getting clean for a ‘clean’ diet.
    Tomorrow, Day 4, I will start light cardio to accelerate the flush. On Day 5, I will start to lift in the afternoon.
    Hopefully by Day 6 I will have the energy to do both and then continue a regime to clean eating and energized workouts.
    I used to compete in Fit Competitions and was in the best shape of my life. Everything went downhill after a diagnoses of cervical cancer…I am in remission now, but after long months of treatments and then a surgery that left me in bed for 8 weeks…I packed on the pounds and lost muscle mass.
    This diet is great to kick start a healthy life and wouldn’t be healthy on your body to go past the 7 days. You can repeat, but give yourself a 2-3 week break with continued healthy eating.

  34. Organic food tastes SO MUCH BETTER than anything else. There is ABSOLUTELY no comparison to a monoculture carrot from Monsanto and sweet organic carrot from a small family farm who treats the land with respect and who gets respect from the land back.

  35. dis s first day

    Feeling slight headache for the past 2 days… But I think I’ll continue with the plan.

  44. I am on my 3rd day & already lost 2kgs but I cheat today. I took 4 strips of potato french fry.
    Feeling very sad now. But still continueing the diet plan.lets see

  45. Today is my 6th day & lost 3 kgs. Very happy with the diet.
    Planning to do it once again giving break of one week. Let u know
    My final result day after tomorrow. Thnx

  46. is it OK if I break the diet here !?
    If I lose what I want to lose for example

  47. Day three Started with 95.2

  48. Day 3 started – lost 1.7 kg in first two days.

  49. today is my first day i followed the diet very strictly but i had fresh orange juice instead of orange is tht ok…planning for day2

  50. Day 3 started with preparation…

    Had Wonder Soup yesterday.

    Good thing is this regimen has given me enough will power to quit tea and coffee altogether. I plan to drop it from my intake forever. Also wonder soup seems good to make it a palnned low calorie intake every week. May be once or twice a week I can simply have Wonder Soup – I add a dash of olive oil and soy sauce to make it tasty. Even my toddler and wife likes the soup.

    Working in high stress office environment and keeping this diet is not easy – at least for me. But I shall try my best.



  51. Abby Congrats…. You Are On Ur Day 3…Just Saw Your Review…Waiting For The Day 7..Share How Much You Reduced…Mine Is Day One… :( All The Best


  52. Day 3 is near completion. I did not check weight yet,. I will check on day 8 only – after I am done. My weekend is going to be tough… as weekend binge should not take over :)

    Just keep up with your regime – all the best…. :) Cheers

  53. Day 3 Ends with still some bouts of hunger pangs and craving for some “real food”

    It is 11:00 pm in India – I am having a handful of grapes and 2 strawberries – some sugar satisfaction will help sleep better. At least the good side of this is assurance that I am able to make conscious effort and plan for healthier food intake.. I have never observed any kind of fasting – religious or otherwise.

    Got my milk and banana ready for day 4 – rock on those who are following this stricter than me and those like me who are barely making it through… God bless :)

  54. i started my diet day before but was out all day ystrday so had a heavy meal for lunch (had some veggies for dinner tho) ….. can i still continue the diet or i need to start afresh???

    Please somebody help …..

    • Hi Jess ..I Am Not An Expert In GM Diet…In Day 2 You Suppose To Eat Vegetables…!! If You Had Any Protein Rich Foods/Non veg….I Suggest You To Start Again…!! Because If You Start With A Potato In The Morning Itself Give Lot Of Carbohydrates..In Addition To That Rich Calorie Foods May Affect Your Diet Plan..!! You Can Do It Jess..Come On…!! Its Ma Personal Opinion..All The Best For Your Diet…


    • Just start again Jess… Try to carry fruits with you in a container for days like these…

  55. Day -3 Started with 91.5 Kg.

    I am eager to start tomorrow :-)

  65. Day 3: I am down 3 lbs! I can actually tell a slight difference in my face. Looking forward to changing up tomorrow on Day 4. I feel much better already, more awake, skin has a certain glow to it. I am very please so far and can’t wait to see what Day 4 will bring!

  66. my husband is diabetic.should he follow the gm diet? n i feel good im following gm diet. on day 3 what is the greens exactly we should it? and i dont eat beef s is it ok eat fish or chicken ?

    5. Can we take low fat milk instead of skimmed milk??

  68. I am on my third day and I feel constipated. Is this normal please?

  69. Started day 3 but just lost half kg:-(

  70. I did a mild cardio work out at the end of day 1. Felt weak and unwell and threw up. Was craving carbs and sugar and ate chocolate brownie. Feeling disillusioned but continuing.

  71. Day 3 is good. Feeling much more energetic than day 1 and 2.

  72. Day 3:

    Weight dropped by 7 pounds. Really not enjoying eating the raw papayas. They have a odd smell and I am not use to the taste of them. I have been following the sample diet plans to a tee. Urinating a lot due to the water intake. Not exercising as of yet. Very weak and tired since starting. Craving everything, but so full throughout the day that I haven’t fell victim to cheating.

  73. hi..this is my 3rd day…having slight headache…had soup on 2nd day night…is it ok

  74. for those who say brown rice is not available…
    esp. indians. brown rice is nothing but d very popular usna chaval… the thick rice dat is normally eaten by villagers….

  75. Kavitha headachces can happen when you cut foods from a diet, especially sugar.. Keep on going ifRA :)

  76. hi ..on day 5 ..we are supposed to have only tomoatoes or with tomatoes we can have other fruits and vegetables ..since i’m vegetarian…planning to have soya chura and soya it fine

  77. The soya stuff should be fine, many people do.
    Tomatoes, dinner maybe some cucumber. You can of course have the soup. No fruit.

  78. Hi. I am on day 3 came down from 55.9 kg to 54.3 kg :) … However had Vegetable soup in a restaurant On day 2 … And had one fourth cup of tea today hope it doesn’t effect the weight loss much .

  79. I stareted gm diet on monday..
    followed it 95% correctly..
    Just that i cant resist Tea.. Had it 1/2 cup twice a day (widout sugar)

    my weight be4 starting – 73.2 kg
    On wed morning – 71.7 kg

    Good results i guess..

    3rd day is abt 2 finish and m really fed up of eating veggies n fruits!!!! although m not craving for other food stuff which i myself is cooking for my family..
    my digestion system and hence hunger sensation is confused i guess :-)

    M gyming regularly as i do… but instead of 1 hour i just do cardio for 30 mins..

    1 suggestion for those who r not losing at all- dont sit on couch having reason tht u r on strict diet, do ur regular physical work and exercise atleast for 20 mins..

    will update you guys tmrw..

    kept fingers crossed!!!

  80. Today is my first day, Can we’ve SALT on day 2 over potato, cabbages, tomato or any other vegetables?
    Please reply fast as today is my first day.

  81. salt is fine, don’t overdue, will cause you to hold water weight so your numbers if you do too much will not be as good it seems on the scale.

  82. I’m on day 3. Havent tried weighing yet but as of this morning, I just lost 2 pounds.

  83. are we allowed to have buttermilk?

  84. no, not a good idea for 7 days

  85. I had half a cup of tea (with milk and sugar) on 2nd and 3rd day of GM diet.. Is it ok?

  86. Sorry on the tea, no…. Got to get off the sugar..

  87. But i already did.. :(
    Can I Continue It?

  88. Robin of course you can continue….

  89. Can we eat Cauliflower on day 3 cooked and mashed?

  90. Mashed cauliflower should be fine….

  91. I am also making a lg pot of the wonder soup so what alterations can we make to it? Does pepper color effect it, I like red yellow and orange. Also on Day 5 can we use patties for breakfast as long as they are lean? Love this diet it has turned out amazing….in three days I have lost 4#’s but on wonder soup can we add the lipton package for extra flavor or no? Thanks you

  92. You can alter some, but mostly with spices. I prefer not to use Lipton, but only organic spices and produce. You can do a patty for breakfast.

  93. Hi!
    Can I have one skinny Latte on Day 3 please?

  94. No, not really, sorry. These little changes, well in this case big can hinder you. But it is up to each person how they want to try it :)

  95. I am towards the dinner time soup for Day 3. Have followed the diet to the T but haven’t lost anything so far :-(
    I am slim ..doing it for detoification and a trimming! can someone suggest why am I not losing? Will I lose in the coming days??

  99. Hello sejal…

    I am not sure what to recommend if you cannot have veggies, can you eat some raw and not boiled?

  100. Priya….

    Egg whites? and no yolks? I am not big on that. Chicken yes is fine though…

    11 hour trip? meat is tough unless you have a cooler. Raw veg is fine if that helps…

  101. I started.

    Not be measuring till last day.
    Hard to do this without family support for Indians.
    Will it work.

  102. Read the reviews of GM diet plan , and started it yesterday. Day 1 was Tough ! Day 2 is a bliss as there are lots of vegis , adding a dash of salt to it. Hope its fine.

  106. Now in my 3rd day!! Hopefully looking forward:-)

  107. I added salt and pepper in my 2nd day.. Was that ok??? Worried a bit…

  108. Hi I’m ending of 3 day of gm deit … I started from 77 kg n still no weight loss …. What’s the reason , plz help admin it’s very depressing :((((

  109. Hi
    I am currently 45.8, have started the GM diet plan on 4th Nov. Did a lil cheating on day 1 but I am now completely focussed and will share the results by end of day 7

  110. Hello everyone! Day 3 was not that easy, for me. However I managed to finish it. This was my menu for today:

    1 Green apple
    1/4 melon


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

    1/4 melon

    Stir fried marrows, very little bell pepper, little broccoli, cabbage, carrot and little green beans (+ salt + some olive oil).

    Admin, I think here I did a mistake – I took very little green beans, but after I realised that maybe they were prohibited during this 7 day plan or am I mistaken? And another question please, today the whole day I was and still am very bloated, and it seems that my tummy remained the same + more bloated, do you have a suggestion why this can be?

    Thank you very much!

    • Bloating, not sure. Salt, too much, it can really vary, maybe not enough hydro chloric acid, seems like a digestive issue, but I am no doctor and this can vary big time. Maybe Google it some. Ficus on your digestion. Green beans are fine.

  111. Thanks a lot for your quick answer!! You give us so much support!

  112. Day 2 was very hard for me as I am not at all fond of Boiled Vegetables.
    I am stating Day 3. Can I stick to just Fruits today?

  113. Day 3, my menu:

    Breakfast: Green apple & slice of melon

    Snack: Tangerine

    Lunch: Grilled Aubergine + grilled marrow + grilled peppers & fresh salad + olive oil

    Snack: Tangerine
    1 green apple

    Dinner: Steamed cabbage, carrot, broccoli, with onion, garlic, few olives, capers & olive oil.
    1 orange

    Hope I’m doing well! Will weigh myself tomorrow morning, I hope not to be disappointed :/

  114. I’m breast feeding so is it ok to follow GM diet

    • Not a doctor, you will need to ask yours. my guess, is if you did this, add more fat to the meals that have none, say just under a tablespoon of coconut oil, also eat the soup never fast!

  115. Can we take coconut water in all seven days?? and also suggest whether lemon tea can be consumed during this diet.

  116. can i hav green tea @ cocunut water?al 7 days i dnt use sugar bt can i us sugar free NATURA?

    • fake sweeteners do not trick the body, so beware but that’s up to you. Yes you can have tea and 10 oz of coconut water a day or so, just don’t overdo.

  117. Hey its my 3rd day.. i lost total 3 kgs…. i m happy to follow this diet.. its very heplfull.

  118. Starting DAY1
    196.65 Pound. Keep you posted… :)

    today’s plan
    An apple – 8am
    Two Sapodilla – 12pm
    200 gm Water Mellon – 3pm
    200 gm Water Mellon – 6pm
    An apple – 8am and Two Sapodilla – 8pm

  119. Guys (URGENT)
    Hi, I am losing weight because I need to shut the faces of people who taunt me all the time.
    with a lot of will power, i followed the diet strictly.

    but today on day 3
    i had 3 dahi puris.
    it contained very little cured, sprouted seed, and little sugar.

    Please help :(

  120. Also, I cannot eat the soup as I have no resources to make it (I live in a college hostel).
    Any substitutes?

  121. Hi everyone, im drinking more then 12 glass of water any harm in that?

  122. Can i put Ajinomoto in boiled vegetables

  123. What I am interested in knowing is what people’s starting weight is….
    It is nice to know that people are loosing weight, but since I am only 137 lbs to begin with (at 5foot 6inches) I feel as though I am not loosing what I should be (started at 137 and morning of Day 3 was at 135.7).
    As well, I am drinking tea and I have also allowed myself one diet pop a day. Is this going to negate the whole experience? Thanks :)

    • Diet pop? yes it can, what does diet pop have to do with weight loss or diet? Your body is not fooled by the fake sweetener, rather hurt. Tea fine no sweetener. Seems like you may want to consider following the diet as we have it rather than negating the soup and adding stuff. Good luck though!

  124. Also, I have not and don’t plan on using the soup. Will this hinder my progress as well?

  125. This is my 3rd day today but no change in weight.. i am strictly following it.

  126. can i add salt to my fruits and vegetables, will that hinder my weight loss

    • salt is fine, just a little, it does not necessarily hinder weight loss, may just cause a little water retention. Can make it seem like you’re not losing that much weight,

  127. Hi, i am on day 3 of gm diet. i am breastfeeding as well. from day 2 i am having these strong headaches but i am being strong.
    So i wanted to asked. I have had 2 apples for breakfast. Can i have baked potato for lunch? i will be having a 1/2 melon for dinner.

  128. Its my day 3 today…. and no cravings fr food 2day :)

  129. Lost 2.5 kg in fist 3 day

    I am having coconut water in morning and lemon in hot water 3.4 times a day, is that OK?

  130. Hi
    Can I eat dried fruits like dried fig or mulberry?or almonds?

  131. Dear All,

    Please advise if I can have Tomato soup(mixed with onions,red and green pepper) for evening snacks/dinner on 3rd day or for lunch/dinner on 4th day.

    • no tomato’s in wonder soup, which can be had any day. day 4 is bananas and milk or wonder soup only. Make sure you read each day….

  132. Hello Author,

    I have tried GM diet before, however only lost 1-2 kgs during 7 days.
    However, this is my 2nd shot at it and today is my 3rd day !

    I just wanted to ask you a few quick questions -
    I am preety confused about coffee.. Can we have cappuccino / with 2 satchets of sugar free like “equal” etc? or may be without sugar ?
    Secondly, i am not eating much as i dont feel hungry that often otherwise as well. I could blame it on my laziness though.. so is it okay to just have the diet recommended meals twice or thrice a day ?
    Lastly, is chciken burger (lettuce, chicken patty, bun slices of tomato) okay to have on day 5 ?

    hoping to get answers ! Thanks

    • No coffee, no sugar, no creamers, no fake sugars. You have to go into this and come out with the mindset that you are making a lifestyle change and eating real foods. If you did do coffee then it has to be plain.

      You should really stay on the plans, eating less is not good at all.

      NO buns no grains…. If you were doing any of these last time, there will be little to no weight loss.

      Good Luck :)

  133. hi,
    I’ve been on ur diet plan since 2007 & without a doubt its the best one for the ones like me! I just hate the idea of fasting and also I do eat till my plate shines bright… I thank u all for this wonderful diet plan. now my querry is that as the time has passed by many GM diet experts hav had their say in different aspects, as I hav advised many to follow this plan with a restriction of minimum 3 months gap, I am now being told that 3 days gap is enough…also what bout those who wants to have tea, as per my knowledge its not at all to be taken but now i’m being told that it is to avoided / restricted to black tea or lime tea….please clarify!!!!

    • experts? There is only 1 GM diet, this one…. So what others have said may have worked for them, but beware!

      Tea, a cup or 2 a day fine, go herbal, something healthy, no sweeteners at all! I am big on a 2 week to 1 month gap. But that’s up to each person :)

  134. hey thanks for the clarification, now this time around today is my third day I theres no reduction in my weight… I told I do tend to eat a lot, but as I hav always done, stick to the diet plans….my wife says that i’m eating more that’s why the effect is not there, but I don’t agree as all I hav increased is the gm wonder soup in my plan that too from yesterday (2nd day) which I take every now and then….can I take soup on 4th day too??

  135. Starting Day 3 and going strong! I accidentally cheated on Day 2 and cooked my lunch time vegetables with a bit too much olive oil (I felt horribly bloated after that too), but I still have lost 5 pounds in the past two days! I will be more conscious of oil use today. I am only eating raw or steamed vegetables from here on out! I’ve been eating so much and really surprised with how satisfied my hunger is PLUS the weight loss. I am using this diet as a jump start to a healthier lifestyle, and plan to repeat the GM diet week once a month. I have kind of strange eating times due to my job, but it’s been working (aside from having to take a bathroom break 1-2 times per hour). I also was a total coffee addict, but I have made the switch to having black tea without sugar while on this diet and it has satisfied my caffeine cravings.

    Day 1:
    Right upon wake up: down two glasses of water.

    Breakfast: 1 1/2 cups mixed melons and a cup of water. I bought a watermelon, cantaloupe, and honey dew, chopped it all up, put it in a large bowl and still have some left for today’s diet plan.
    Morning snack: 1 apple and a cup of water
    Lunch: 2 cups of melons and an orange and about three cups of water (I have a large thermus and consume all of it by the end of the work day.
    Afternoon snack: a container of blackberries a cup of water
    Dinner: 2 cups of melons, two glasses of water, and a few strawberries for dessert.

    I did have some stomach pain that night, but it was bearable. By the end of the day, most of my cravings subsided.

    Day 2
    Upon wake up: Drink two glasses of water
    Breakfast: 1 cup of boiled potato with a pat of butter and minced garlic
    Morning snack: I actually did not have one this day, I forgot my snack at home when I left for work..
    Lunch: Lightly sauteed asparagus, daikon radish, and cherry tomatoes(this is where I used way too much oil, but it still was a healthy meal) and three cups of water
    Afternoon snack: a red lettuce salad with cherry tomatoes and a herb-infused vinegar(I made this at home, apple cider vinegar, fresh basil, dill, rosemary, and garlic. very good for salad!!)
    Dinner: since I was so full from lunch, I had a roasted beet with a bit of sea salt for dinner and two cups of water

    On this day, I horribly craved for something with the crunch of chips. However, I prepared for this by buying roasted seaweed. And munching on a sheet of seaweed when I got a craving. No fat. No salt. Barely any calories, and great for detoxing! Gave me that crunch-craving I desperately wanted.

    And now, for day 3:
    Upon waking: two cups of water
    Breakfast: 1 cup of melon, two cups of water
    morning snack: an orange
    Lunch: lightly sauteed and spiced/seasoned cabbage and one roasted beet (leftovers from last night) and some strawberries
    Afternoon snack: red lettuce with my vinegar and a mango
    Dinner: I am planning to make the wonder soup tonight, so that’s what dinner’s gonna be. Maybe with a little melon or some fruit for dessert

    Today’s gonna be hard! It’s Friday and pot luck day at work, but I got this! Hope all of you the best with a jumpstart to weight loss and a healthy lifestyle!

    • Tea is fine no sweeteners. Hang in there, nobody including myself ever says dieting is easy. But keep in mind how well you feel on this diet, then eat this way after but more balanced of course. Pot Lucks, RUN :)

  136. What can i have instead of tomatoes?

  137. Okay so I’m on day 2 but I’m really struggling because my stomach just keeps feeling empty. I have used zero salt or pepper or anything but I see that many use it, is it allowed? Also I am getting lots of headaches. Could i have plain non-salted crackers with the salad?

    • Or cheese ?

      • Yes use salt and pepper. have the soup when you need food. NO cheese and never on crackers. They may not have salt or fat, but it’s those empty junk carbs like in crackers that cause most weight gain. Also you can use pepper,s spices, etc…

  138. Hello what type of seasoning would be ok to use for the meat I know it’s salt and pepper but what about organic cayenne and stuff like that? Anyone know any brands that Walmart or Publix has? Thanks

  146. i just lost 2.8kg at the beginning of day 3…. can’t wait to start day 3!
    for dinner, can we substitute with spinach soup?

  147. hi,
    I had lost 5 lb by the morning(3rd day)
    Today i had :
    Breakfast- 1 cup watermelon
    lunch – 1/2 cup cabbage soup and 1/2 cup sautéed Birds Eye Recipe Ready Mixed Vegetables
    dinner-1/4 cup sautéed Birds Eye Recipe Ready Mixed Vegetables.
    * mixed veg has Peas, carrots, corn, cut green beans …
    I used 1tbs oil to sauté them,.my doubt is whether my diet is on the right way or not…i fear that oil or sweet corn might add up to my weight..
    And for tomorrow do we have any substitute for banana… as it has lot of calories in it..

    Can you please guide on it.

    Thank you..

    • Stick to the plan it actually works. I am not a big fan of corn, seasoning with it is OK though, Where is your protein/meat? Why are you skipping stuff. Other fruits not much better tan bananas, bananas are on there for a reason.

  148. thank you author.. i will follow the plan as it is.. actually i am not feeling much hunger so im having small size meals.. i will have bananas n skim milk tomorrow..:)
