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, local is even better.

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

  28. lost 1 and a half kilograms in the third day!

  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
    weight- 75.85

  41. Its my third day,,still feel any difference.

  42. On day 3 now. Lost about 2 Kgs / 4 lbs until this morning.
    Feeling slight headache for the past 2 days… But I think I’ll continue with the plan.
    No hunger pangs yet.
    No cravings on day 3.

  43. lost 4kls m, from day 1, im onmy day 3 today…amazing

  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.

    Regards,

    Abby

  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

    Cheers,
    Anu

  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…

      Cheers,
      Anu

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

    The plan is really working for me..my plum chin and extra fat around the face has vanished magically.

    Since I am only going to check my weight on the final day..but looking myself at the mirror I can definitely tell I have lost a good weights.

    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 ?

  67. I am on my day 2. First day i lost 1.6 kgs. I have few questions???

    2. And also can we add soup to diet on day 2??
    3. I dont eat beef but either i dont get brown rice here what can i do??
    4. In your sample menu on fourth day only 3 bananas are mentioned is it enough or we have to take all the 8??
    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….

    btw 2day is my day1.. trying gm diet 4 d first tym… need to lose alot of weight… wish me luck.., an good luck to u all! :)

  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 chappati..is 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?
    Thanks

  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??

  96. I would be travelling day 3 eve buy bus on a 11 hr travel can you suggest me on what i should be taking along ? 2 apples for the night should do the trick?Also can someone tell me what can i use instead of chicken and beef not coz im a veg just that as im working getting these to office makes me late… so is there anything i can grab onto other than these ? if so can you please let me know for day 5 and 6 how would i manage? egg white is good?or anything else to substitute them

  97. and neha … i was solid 96 kgs before is started right now aftr 2 cycles i stand at 88 so thats a huge change in 2 weeks … keep drinking water that matters a lot … i guess.. if your thin already spend more time excersing and jogging or walking to trim yourself up.

  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.
    At 84.
    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.
    Can we have juices .. like carrot and apple juice on Day 3 ? Is it recommended , specially at night ? Can someone help.

  103. salt is OK, no juices like that, especially at night. :)

  104. Day 3

    I had fruits in the morning, vege at noon, fruits for tea and gonna have papaya for dinner later.

  105. Can I have tomato basil soup in day 3

  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

    Snack:
    Strawberries

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

    Snack:
    1/4 melon

    Dinner
    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… :)

  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

    CAN I STILL CONTINUE THE DIET?
    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!!!!
    THANKS!!!

    • 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…..as 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

  139. hi author,

  146. i just lost 2.8kg at the beginning of day 3…. can’t wait to start day 3!

  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..:)

        • You had not fat on your potato, this is NOT a non-fat diet, you have to follow the plan. That fat was so important. also 1 cup was not enough

    Following Deit instruction in totality
    Any reason why no effect?

    • quinoa, white rice. a few sprouts are OK. you can have the lentils, cottage cheese, etc when replacing beef/meat meals yes. up to you to make changes, you just really need to stay in the plan.

  157. Hi my mother is on this diet and she refuses to take any fat vegetables she is 42 and is on the second days almost ending please help on showing her if it is really important to not have any Intake of fatty vegetables

    • Well I can tell you with no fat, this fat free or low fat craze causes weight gain in most, gallbladder issues and more. Your body needs goo fat, animal fats, olive oil, coconut oil, etc

  164. Hi Guys…
    Sharing my GM diet experience.
    Today is day 3 of my 5th week of GM diet.
    It all started when i was 98.6 kg’s, 4 months back and decided i dont wanna score a century like tendulkar. :)
    I started my 1st week on 26th jan 2014. After 1st week my weight dropped to 93.5kg’s… I gave a gap of 8-10 days and started 2nd week.. I kept on doing this for 4 weeks giving a break of 10-12 days between each gm diet week. At the end of 4 weeks i was a good 12.6 kgs less than when i started. i came down from 98.6kgs to 86kgs. Now lot of people here are having a lot of doubts as to how to follow the plan correctly. Well let me share my way of doing it. Im not claiming that im doing it right or everybody should follow me. Im just sharing my experience.
    I normally start my week on a monday and end on a sunday.

    Day 1
    Just water melon and sweet melon for breakfast, lunch dinner.
    Additionally
    half a glass of honey and lemon juice in warm water early morning.
    2 black coffee’s a day without milk and sugar
    6-8 litres of water
    30 min cardio
    20 min of stretching and lifting weights.

    Day 2
    -2 potatoes for breakfast… Here it says u can have baked potatoes with a pat of butter. Well i improvised and boiled 2 potatoes and then light fried them in a pat of butter with salt, pepper n garlic. taste just like fries… :)
    -lunch: a bowl of raw cucumber, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, celery, corn, red and yellow bell pepper sprinkled with black salt and pepper.
    -dinner: same as lunch
    Additionally
    half a glass of honey and lemon juice in warm water early morning.
    2 black coffee’s a day without milk and sugar
    6-8 litres of water
    30 min cardio
    20 min of stretching and lifting weights.

    Day 3
    – Breakfast: Watermelon and sweet melon
    – Lunch: same as day 2
    – Dinner: same as day 2
    Additionally
    half a glass of honey and lemon juice in warm water early morning.
    2 black coffee’s a day without milk and sugar
    6-8 litres of water
    30 min cardio
    20 min of stretching and lifting weights.

    Day 4 (Toughest for me. I almost give up this day)
    -Breakfast: a glass of milk with a spoon of honey in it. 2 bananas
    – Lunch: same as breakfast :(
    – Dinner: same as breakfast :(
    Additionally
    half a glass of honey and lemon juice in warm water early morning.
    2 black coffee’s a day without milk and sugar
    6-8 litres of water
    30 min cardio
    20 min of stretching and lifting weights.

    Day 5
    – Breakfast- Chicken soup with green veggies. (diced boneless chicken w/o skin)
    – Lunch- Chicken or mutton patty (normal burger patty size), tomato and cucumber. I myself make my patty at home using minced meat which is readily available in cold storages. I add garlic, salt and pepper to my patty and fry it in 1/2 tbsp of olive oil.
    – Dinner- same as lunch
    Additionally
    half a glass of honey and lemon juice in warm water early morning.
    2 black coffe’s a day without milk and sugar
    6-8 litres of water
    30 min cardio
    20 min of stretching and lifting weights.
    NOTE: from day 5 I also start having maximum 2 beers a day as i cant stay away from alcohol on weekends and since i start my GM diet week on monday, day 5 comes on friday. :)
    A gentle reminder again, I am not recommending anybody to have alcohol during a diet and expecting nobody to follow me. I am just sharing my experience.

    Day 6
    -Breakfast: Vegetable soup. (Broccoli, celery, red and yellow bell pepper, cabbage, corns, salt and pepper)
    – Lunch: Chicken kebab with a tomatoe and cucumber… Just take chunks of chicken, red and yellow bell pepper, some garlic. arrange them on a skewer and put them directly on flame till they turn dark brown and slightly charred.
    – Dinner: same as lunch
    Additionally
    half a glass of honey and lemon juice in warm water early morning.
    2 black coffee’s a day without milk and sugar
    6-8 litres of water
    30 min cardio
    20 min of stretching and lifting weights.

    Day 7
    – Breakfast: watermelon and fresh fruit juice (a mixture of pomegranate, water melon, sweet melon, apple)
    – Lunch: Brown rice with chicken stew.
    – Dinner: i normally quit till i reach here and eat a normal indian sunday dinner (Rice, Chappati, Chicken masala etc)

    I usually lose 3-4 kgs’s per diet week with an exception of my 1st week where i lost 5.1 kgs and 2nd week where i lost just 1.2 kgs as i cheated in between eating snacks like samosa and wada.

    Now i read some comments saying do not follow GM diet as u tend to gain weight much faster after u quit.
    Well im not saying they r wrong but what i feel is it all depends upon individual’s metabolism and lifestyle.

    i have a very sedentary life style sitting in front of computer 10 hours a day and drinking 4-5 days a week. (except th 50 min i put in for exercise.) and i have noticed the following.

    -i gained weight at the rate of 500 grams per week with the above life style but not eating any sweets or additional sugar.
    – i gained almost 1 kg per week when i had additional sugar such as sweetened soft drinks, indian sweets and chocolates.
    In any case if you lose 4-5 kgs per week and then take 5-10 weeks to gain those 5 kgs back, i think its pretty much ok.

    Additional benefits
    1) i personally experienced my blood pressure lowering to 120 from a constant 140 plus initially. (Rechecked 4-5 times to confirm)

    2) a friend of mine followed this diet. He always had swollen toes due to high sugar levels. After doing this diet 4-5 times he found the swelling to reduce.

    Again im not claiming or recommending any one to follow this diet but simply sharing my experience.

    Regards
    Harry

  166. Assuming the tea has no sweetener that’s ok. Where was that potato on day 2? That is a huge miss, you really needed that. By the looks of it you seem like you think eating less is better, it is not, please stick to the plan. Keep going though :)

        • Beans are a huge mistake in your soup! This is not our daily soup. Keep that in mind, can really throw you possibly. Other than that not bad.

          • oh i used 250 gms beans in total for 3 days soup.
            is it too bad?

    • Hello
      all looks good. glad you feel better processed foods are a killer. The beans are fine after diet, just not during on veg days, soya chunks are up to each person, there is just nothing healthy about soy. You are doing well by the way, keep going :)

    • all veg? tough call, you can continue as you see fit, but it will be tough, I am so sorry… You cannot eat nuts, fruits, wheat, cheese, etc and think you will be able to keep weight off. There has to be balance. Do you eat loads of processed foods (Canned/boxed foods)?

  182. Pls let me know what i can take on day 5 pls..iam vegeterian,,, & indian pls suggest what i can eat for breakfast, lunch & dinner

  183. Ya b4 i use….alergetic to veg means hmmmm:)sorry….i will really try eating next time…but on second say i had lots of cucumber..:) please let me know if want to restart or continue…

    • don’t be, I’m sorry, hang in there, take a day or 2 off and then start again. Cucumber is good, any other veg you can have?

  184. Carrot,tomato,cucumber & caulifower…pls give me plan…i wil start again from 1st june…Thank u thanks a lot for caring & answering my questions :)

    • Follow what we laid out, then use these veg we we call for nay veg. Make a simple soup from tomato and cauliflower, add whatever spices you like.

  185. can any one tell me can we use calocasia in vegetables?/

  186. day 3
    2 apples in the early morning
    breakfast: fruit bowl with pineapple, half a small papaya, one kiwi and an apple

    lunch: bowl of vegetable soup(same as in day 2)
    post lunch: more soup
    dinner: left over soup and 2 oranges

  187. I am on day 3 of the diet, but I feel weak.Y is it so?

    • It can be normal, when you cut processed foods, wheat, sugar, etc your body will let ya know for a few days. Most people end up totally energized afterwards.

  188. Can we cook vegs like peas, lady finger in olive oil for our meal like we saute green pepper and onions for wonder soup.

    • you can cook the veg per the recipe for the soup yes, other than that no. Although 1/2 tsp of oil would not hurt.

  189. Weigh myself in the morning of Day 3. Lost 4.5 pounds already! Happiness!

  190. I started on 18th June i weighed 85.5 Kg
    today on 19th june woww its 83.5 Kg..
    i got one thing 4m this that if u want bestest results then do physical exertion also….
    then the same result u will get as I :)

  191. Hi. I am in obese category. I was currently weighing 145.8 kg. i finished my first day of GM diet yesterday and today i checked my weight, Awsome my weight was 144.3 kg. Today i am having all the vegetables. mostly carrot, cabbage and tomatoes is it fine. Please suggest

  192. Started with 92.2 Day 3 started and I am 91.3 Kg as did some cheating on day 2…. :) :) I had beans and 2 bowl curd at dinner. Later on somewhere I read that beans are not good for Gm diet.

    Will make sure to honestly follow the plan on day 3 :D ;D

    Can I have some Chach( Butter milk ) n my day 3. ???

  193. Started this morning with weight at 92 Kg…
    Followed the plan with some deviation of having 2 cups of regular Tea (without sugar)… and some wonder soup when I felt hungry. I have consumed fruits with the condition of unlimited supply …:) that is till my satisfaction, which anyways did not go way beyond the prescribed limit.
    Important change that I noticed: lesser or almost no pangs or cravings for sweets / snacks that I earlier had. Will check the weight tomorrow and am all excited to see the result. … (y)

  194. tea no sugar as long as it’s herbal is OK. your body will start to pull away from junk, however introduce any at all, and scientifically your dopamine levels will shoot up and you will crave it once again. BEWARE (from personal failures and experiences :) )

  195. Starting the Day 3…… on a jubilant note…. have reduced to slightly under 90 Kg from 92… losing over 2 Kg in 2 days…. that too when I cheated on a dry fruit barfee yesterday… could not resist it…Blame it on my sweet tooth… ;)
    Important thing that I noticed was tantalising your test buds with your favourite taste , and not consuming any real calories acts a s a positive deterrent to your cravings for sweets etc…. :D
    I would not advise others to … but I do enjoy indulging into a bit of ..just a bit of ,change of taste. And it works to keep you happy, which I think is important to keep you stress free… (y)

    • Well define stress free? To me I found denying myself foods that will cause issues later down the road are so beyond stress free, it’s an amazing feeling to say no. That cheat, that sugar is short lived pleasure asking you to come back for more and more. I can assure everyone here, stress free is doing what it takes to get you life back on the right track. However this is a personal decision, I had a sweet tooth and could eat a pound of organic dried mangoes in a day, and it only ended up causing me stress in the end.

  196. Hello, I’m starting day 3 today, and I’m very demotivated as I haven’t lost even a pound! Could someone please tell me why that is? I should add that I’m 52 Kgs, and have over the last 10 years put on and lost small amounts of weight fairly frequently. This time last year, I was 47.5 Kgs. Now though, no diet seems to work – my body seems to have become immune to weight loss. Could anyone share any insights on this? Many thanks.

    • Hello….

      What is you diet like on a normal day? do you eat wheat, sugar, fake sweeteners, processed foods, bad oils? etc etc this will help to know :) Hang in there.

  197. Hi,

    I do have wheat occasionally – when the diet demands it, but none on the GM diet so far. No sugar, no cheese/butter and just normal vegetable oil for cooking. I do use sweetener in my tea. My body just doesn’t seem to respond to my attempts to trick it into losing weight lately :-(

    • yah, there can be underlying health issues like high cortisol, thyroid problems, etc. To me, the only thing that worked for me was cutting all sugar, eating balanced meals like I posted the example diet in the forum, cutting junk vegetable oils (Use coconut, palm or olive), cut too many snacks and never eat processed foods. Think nutrient dense and never eat gluten. it’s not easy, but when done it’s bliss!

  198. Many thanks, please could you also suggest a beef substitute for day 5? It would be so helpful if you could list all 3 meals with a substitute for day 5. The website isn’t too clear here.

  199. Would chicken work equally well?

  200. And another question – tomorrow is day 6 for me,which means chicken and vegetables. No brown rice is allowed on this day right? I ask as the Chinese stir fry recipe listed on the website says that the chicken stir fry should be served on a bed of brown rice. But there is no mention of brown rice for day6otherwise.

  201. are olives a veggie. I put them w my lettuce day 2. How about spinach. haven’t seen any mention if this is ok.

  202. is almond milk ok for day 4?

  203. My starting weight was 76.5kgs gained after pregnancy.
    After completing this diet, I weigh 69kgs.
    This diet is great! Tried almost anything but without success. I’m a nurse, so I have a moderately active lifestyle. I cheated on day 2, I can’t eat raw and bland veggies so I ate fruits instead (cherry, strawberry & grapes). For the exercise, I did the jillian michaels level1 30day shred every other day and 7minute scientific exercise everyday.
    My target weight is 60kgs. I will do this again after 2weeks.

  204. Is there a specific recipe for the day 5 beef soup or is it ok to just have the cabbage soup.

  205. Can I have boiled corn on cob on day 2 and day 3 for lunch. R corn high on carbs?

    • I never recommend corn, technically a grain, a high allergen food, normally heavily genetically modified and nutrient dead. So for at least this plan, no corn.

  206. can i eat sweet corn in day 2 and 3?

    • try not to, it’s nutrient dead, normally over genetically modified, technically a grain and relied upon way too much as a veg.

  207. HI ,

    this is my 2nd time when i am following this diet. Today is my 3rd day and in morning i was feeling so weak. i am taking soup of all veggies with lil salt and spices , as i cant eat bolied or raw veggies. Is this i am feeling weak because i am taking too much watery soup and not whole plain raw veggies?(this soup is wonder soup kinda only added spices to it).

    Thanks for your guidance.
    Angel

    • Add as many spices as you like to your food. Weakness the first couple of days can be normal, take a cup of herbal tea (no sweetener) or coconut water to help some. The soup should help you with electrolyte issues, over drinking water can cause you to be weak, flushes out minerals needed. The soup or coconut water can help with that.

  208. Hi,

    I’m in 4th cycle 4th day. When i started this diet my weight was 77.8 and now 74. I’m not reduced atleast 5kgs overall this cycles. Can i know the reason for this.

    I have to reduce my intake as much as? Or i took boiled sweet corn…that’s the reason?

    • boiled corn is a huge no no. however you could have it once, say 1/4 cup. problem is folks over do it. Technically it’s a grain, nutrient dead, genetically modified and a big health hindrance. are you doing each cycle back to back? you cannot do that. please let me know.

      • Yes. I’m doing back to back. Is any wrong? In 4th cycle day 2 my weight 73.2…happy to see that and in the next day(day 3) i expect atleast 73 to reduce..but my weight on day 3 is 74.4. shocked…why suddenly gained 1kg..I cant understand… :-(

  209. Yes. I’m doing back to back. Is any wrong? In 4th cycle day 2 my weight 73.2…happy to see that and in the next day(day 3) i expect atleast 73 to reduce..but my weight on day 3 is 74.4. shocked…why suddenly gained 1kg..I cant understand… :-(

  210. Hi All

    I am in day 3 Diet. Pure Veg :)

    can i eat guava in mid evening. Also how to prepare for day 4?

  211. Can corn be eaten on vegetable day?

    • It could season 1 dish, meaning less than a 1/4 cup all 7 days. for so many reasons corn is just not healthy. technically it’s a grain. it’s 95% genetically modified and nutrient dead. most people whether they realize it or not do not do well on it. Unless you can find sprouted organic pure old style corn. I would not. Sorry :)

  212. I’m on day 2, Today was much better then yesterday as I made all different kind of cooked dishes. Was that a mistake, were the veggies supposed to be eaten only raw? Does that apply also to day 3?

    • good news, cook the veg if you like for sure. raw veg can be tough in the digestion for some that have digestive issues.

  213. Thanks for the promp response.
    What about potatoes can I have one for lunch?

  214. just breakfast day 2

  215. I started my first day of diet with 1 apple and 2 guavas then in lunch 1 cup Sun melon and then in dinner I had 1 Cup papaya, 1Apple, 1 guava. Then on 2 day i had one bolied potato in breakfast , 2 carrots and 2 cucumbers in lunch, then in dinner 1 small bowl pulses. Hope it would work. Now i will not eat pUlses again. Please suggest diet for Day3

    • Did you have any fat on the potato, day butter or olive oil? We have laid out sample days for you under each section. It’s hard to do much more than that since much is determined by your location.

  216. Yesi used olive Oil 1/4 tblespoon

  217. Would it work now as i had pulses on Day 2 in night?

  218. Thanks for the prompt response. Hope it would work!!!!

  219. Helow

    Im on 3 day of GM Diet… i hd dysentry … its gud or …

  220. Hi can I eat pickles and corn on the cob?

    • NO, corn is technically a grain. Pickles would be fine if they are a pure type, that does not have chemicals and bad oils in them.

  221. Pickles are called cucumbers in brine. Ingredients are selected cucumbers salt spices water acidulants are they ok?

    • I know what pickles are, I actually ferment my own. you can have if you like. Acidulants, scary they will not say which ones, trust me you likely do not want to know. Keep in mind natural is better, pickles do not need those ingredients.

  222. Sorry I was just writing what it said on the jar. Just wanted to make sure all ingredients are known. Thanx for the reply

  223. Hello i am presently on my day 3 of the gm diet, i feel better, but my question is on the days 5-7 can i substitute meat for fish? i got confused because everywhere i was seeing meat with rice or can i substitute the meat for the cup of rice? i dont want to eat beef. please advice me on what to eat for days 5-7, no beef pls, will prefer chicken if its allowed or fish.

  224. hii i am on my day 3 of gm diet..can i hav sprouts and red chana today and remaining days

    • some sprouts, just a few with your veg. NO red chana, it can replace meat. You cannot have legumes when you like on this program. They have carbs and protein and will throw off the balance of it.

  225. hi ,
    i m started gm.diet plan on 15.09.2014,
    day 1:
    apple-1
    pomo-1

    May i skip this diet plan.

    But i want to continue this.
    Corn affecting to reduce weight ???
    Answer asap.

    • You can continue, but you cannot only eat corn and carrots as a veg. Corn is technically a grain and nutrient dead. Sorry, it’s just a fact. Folks always go for corn, peas and carrots for veg. However keep going if you like. Sorry. Carrots are also higher in carbs, we do not say eat carrots. They are fine off plan but not now.

      • Good Morning,

        I ate 2 apples last night.
        Day 4:
        today morning had 1 cup of milk and banana one big size.
        today my plan is totally 6 bananas and 4 cup milk.
        4 litres of water.
        Day 0 my weight is 65.
        today morning 62.9 (i.e) 4th day morning.

        Kindly help me to follow correctly.

        I feel tired in the afternoon.
        Morning and after evening its okay.
        But in between time 1.30-5.30 really tough time to follow this strictly diet.
        But i will control to eat other foods.
        I will follow only as per your Diet Menu.

        But some of the Food items are not available in local indian market.(Except metropolitans…)

        Thank you for your immediate reply.

        • Too much to reply to, but you are not following this diet here at all per plan. It’s 4 bananas not 6, you cannot have BREAD, you are not eating enough food, You are not subbing correctly for meat on 5 5 and 6, you are eating the wrong types of foods. Sorry. Please carefully read the comments here and each day before doing it again, you cannot make up your own plan. Sorry :)

      • Awaiting your reply

  226. Hi, nearly finished day two and already a few pounds lighter. I am prepping for the following days and just wondering about the rice. Would Basmati rice be ok? Thank you :-)

  227. Excellent, thanks so much for your reply. Woke up this morning (day3) and woohoo 2.1kgs lighter.

  228. today is my 3 day, m strictly fallowing diet but there is no difference in weight, why???

  229. Hey can we have salt and spices…. if yes how much in the whole day!

    • Yes, with salt whatever you are used to, just never over do it. Pepper, spices, herbs, peppers, etc go for it for the most part.

  230. i just follow the gm diet..this is second day for me….

  231. Can I have a roasted fresh corn a day in the diet plan? I have completed 3 days of the plan. I am a vegetarian and little choosy with my eating habits. Please suggest.

  232. Thank you for the quick response. I lost 2 kgs during day 1&2, added spinach and carrot in the veg soup, had it 3 times during day 3. Lost no weight after day 3. Please suggest is adding spinach & carrot to the soup the reason of not loosing any weight(as these are not mentioned in ingredients to be used in the soup ), I am little disappointed. Also to confess – I had a roasted corn in day 3. I am on the day 4 today, can soup be taken today.

    • Carrot not recommended. The corn was the kicker though. Folks think corn is a normal veg, it’s technically a grain and does nothing to help in weight loss, quite the reverse.

  233. day 1 ate
    melons for breakfast and melons guava and papaya for dinner thats all
    day 2 ate
    cucumber tomatoes and lettuce for midsnack and cucumber toamatoes and lettuce for dinner followed by roasted pumpkin

    am i go doing ok or is there something wrong in what i am eating?

    • Well you missed the potato and butter/good fat for breakfast day 2. That was a huge miss. Other than that it’s OK, although pumpkin not a great veg choice during the program. great to eat after, has good carbs.

  234. can we have tomato soup for dinner on day 3?
    secondly what can we substitute for banana on day4 ?
    and thirdly what can i substitute for beef in the succeeding days?

    • no, sorry
      pick another fruit, it will be fine.
      chicken, eggs, legumes (needs good fat like ghee or olive oil), rice (same needs good fat)

      • any specific reason for not having tomato soup…..because it would be home made without any oil ….

        • As a part of a balanced meal great. It does actually at that point, when you are eating a normal diet need good fat. You cannot have a meal without good fats. However it can mess with the carb balance of this diet. Cooked tomatoes are higher in carbs and natural sugar. FYI… So I tend to be more picky within the 7 days. :) Good question though…

          • thanks for the reply….
            just a few more questions i need to ask..
            1) can i have buttermilk (curd with water and salt) instead of milk on day 4?
            2) how many eggs can i have on day 5 and can i omit the yellow part on day 5?
            3) can i have white rice instead of brown?
            4) can i replace beef with a paneer ?

            • 1) yes
              2) Never omit the yellow, it’s where all of the good fat and nutrition will be.
              3) white is great, a basmati or jasmine especially.
              4) Sure can…

  235. Im gettin married on the 23rd of this month already lost 1 stone through various diets but really want to shed another 7 pounds before wedding, starting tomoro im gunna see if this diet works. Fingers crossed feeling motivated.

  236. How about green tea n light exercise along with gm diet plan? Its not recommended but still wanted to knw coz i hv habit of drinking green tea.. thnk U

    • light exercise is fine, just don;t tear down your muscles. Green tea is OK no sweetener unless it’s stevia.

      • Thnk U so much :-) started with the plan n completed Day 3…. getting ready for the next day with banana n skimmed milk :-D Regarding weight i had 60kg with 5’3 height… Gonna check only after 7th day… :-)

        • Good luck. remember to weigh right when yo wake up, after going ot the bathroom and before you eat or drink anything. This is vital to knowing your true weight :)

          • once again thnx for ur warm wishes n i knw i reduce a bit coz i feel lighter than any of my days… will let u knw how much i reduce n by chance if i dont then i will seek ur help for any changes to make in next cycle…

  237. Managed to get through day 1. Just wondered if I can use any soya sauce with veg tomoro and flavourings at all?

    • Pure dried herbs and spices are OK, sauces likely like that are not pure at all, have too much bad sodium, MSG possibly and other preservatives. Be ware of poor flavorings, they contain things that really hurt your body…

  238. Hi,
    Can i eat boiled Ghiya (Bottle gourd) on my 3rd day..

  240. Hi… I am allergic to bananas. Can u tell me what i can eat on day 4

  241. Hi thanks for all ur support in explaining to us.
    I am on my 2nd day and i have list 1.5 kgs. I had soups on 1st and 2nd day and added greem chillies for taste (asbi am used to eating very spicy food). Is it ok?

  242. Hi.
    Today is my first day
    Can u help with types of soup I can have,

    After how many weeks can I repeat the diet again?

    • Hello
      Just a base veg soup really during the diet. No potato or tubers/starchy veg in it.

      Best to wait at least 2 weeks in between plans. We do have a plan you can follow in between plans in the After 7 Days section.

  243. I am starting my diet tomorrow. I have a long day ahead of me and all I have for fruits are pomegranate and apples. Eek

  244. I start tommo!

  245. Dear author, thanks again.
    I have lost 2 kgs and today is my third day..
    Would keep u posted…. i am super excited…

    Eating papay right now :)

    Millions thanks

  246. Hi, can i add eggplant to my diet today?.
    Basically saute in a spoon full ghee or olive oil and then mash and eat it? Is it ok?

  247. Can I have mushrooms and olives on day 2? Also how much salt intake is preferred? Thank you.

    • Salt is up to you. If you over do it, the worst that will happen is your retain a little water weight for a day. Mushrooms, a few are fine. No olives until after the program.

  248. I have a general question on eating after 8 pm. Since my work timing start from the afternoon 12.30 pm to night 9.30 pm, I get to sleep only by 12.00 or 1.00 am. Is it ok to eat @ 10 or 11 pm? I see most diets ask you to stop by 8 pm. I wake up late in the morning @ 8 am so I tend to have breakfast only @ 11 am. Is my cycle correct? or Should I change the pattern and strictly follow no eating after 8 pm or 10 pm?

    • Well, I will try and summarize the main points. You first have to just do your best. Yes, your circadian rhythms play a huge role in your weight loss and how you digest/heal. So it’s best to be in bed by 10:30pm and have eaten by 7:00pm to 7:30pm. These factors play a huge role in weight loss/weight gain. Stick with the plan, just do the best you can…

  249. Hi,

    Can I have roasted chana, on any day as i have this habit of munching something along with my green tea.

    Also I have heard that having cucumber with green tea helps in loosing weight.

    Thanks :)

    • NO roasted channa daily, sorry.
      Tea is fine, no sweetener unless it’s stevia. cucumber is fine also. Quick note, little things like tea helping you lose weight, these types of things you read mostly are there to gain reader interest, I can assure you the only thing to help with weight loss is a lifestyle change. Make that first then do the green tea and cucumber last to support it :)

  250. this is my second round for GM. 1st try i lost a total of 7kg. i took a 2 week break and started again. i lost 2kg on the first day, but gained it back this morning which is day 3. is this normal? i’ve been following the diet very strictly.

  251. here’s what i ate by the way:

    day 1
    breakfast and lunch was watermelon
    had some grapes and pineapple for dinner
    3lts of water

    day 2
    lettuce with vinaigrette
    grilled eggplant for lunch
    spinach for dinner
    3lts of water.

    i lost 2kg on the first day and gained it back today. i weigh myself first thing in the morning. thanks ;)

    • Well you first missed the best food to eat for weight loss day 2. A potato and the fat needed with it. Huge miss. You also seem to be barely eating. That’s not good either. Keep rolling though all should be OK :)

  252. last 2 days were good! I’m feeling light and more energetic today!
    Today I had 1 orange + 4 pieces of Cantaloup in breakfast
    In lunch I had a bowl of cabage+1/4 sprouts+1 onion+3 tomatoes +1 cucumber
    for eve snack, I will have a bowl of salad(cabage,cucumber,carrot,beat,shimala mirchi(chili)
    and for dinner will plan to have, 2 apples and cabage soup…
    Please let me know if I’m going wrong anywhere… :)

  253. I ended up eating grilled chicken for the last meal on day 3. Did I mess up big time?:(

  254. Can we have plums in day 3?

And also see a doctor if you feel you need approval to do so. If you plan to exercise during the diet, you cannot do heavy weights and heavy workouts (We state this on the Exercise page), you need to have the correct amount of protein. The first 4 days of this diet do not have protein, so your exercise you be very light. You cannot tear muscle down without something to build it up. Thanks You
