GM Diet Day 4

The fourth day of the GM diet weight loss program is filled with surprises. Unlike the past three days where you are only allowed to consume fruits and vegetables, Day 4 offers three unlikely meals: bananas, milk and soup. For our full coverage of the GM Diet plan so far, read day 1, day 2 and day 3 before you continue with this article.

Day 4 can be quite boring at first glance as these are the only meals allowed for consumption but remember that by now your body has already adjusted to the big change in diet and is slowly getting used to the new dietary content.

By Day 4 the body has already garnered sufficient amounts of sweets from fruits, and at the same time fiber from vegetables. Since it already has a sustained appetite, it would no longer be responsive to the taste of bananas. Persons who have reached Day 4 would rely more on liquids, and they get their energy from milk shakes and soup.

Preparing the Body for Day 4

Preparing for Day 4 is the easiest. Since the day offers only the said three meals, followers might just as well make themselves busy with various physical activities. They already have packed energy for the day, and they might just as well be productive by working out, or engaging in different leisure events.

Most people feel different by day 4. By this stage, a livelier attitude towards life is what most people feel. By Day 4 followers of the diet have already gone through natural detoxifying processes, and they are found to be more cheerful and enthusiastic when it comes to performing physical activities.

GM Diet Day 4 Breakfast

The best way to start Day 4 is by consuming a banana paired with a glass of warm milk (almond milk or a very lite coconut milk will be fine as well). Some followers prefer a bowl of sliced bananas on milk like those in breakfast cereals, only without the cereal content.

Skim milk should be used all day in this stage; full milk proves to be heavy on the stomach and filled with unnecessary nutrients that are not beneficial to the weight loss regimen.

GM Diet Day 4 Lunch

Lunch served in Day 4 consists of a bowl of vegetable soup. Most soup bowls consist of various vegetable produce flavored with herbs and spices. Best vegetable soups that can be served during lunch include tomato soup and cabbage stew, as they are packed with natural flavors that the taste buds would savor even as the day ends.

GM Diet Day 4 Dinner

Dinner in Day 4 may consist of a serving of vegetable soup and banana shake. This can be quite heavy to handle later at night, so followers may forego the shake and focus on the soup, as this alone can keep them full until the next morning.

GM Diet Day 4 Midday Snacks and Beverages

In Day 4, the only recommended snacks would be bananas and milk, which can be served in cold banana shakes. These snacks prove to be essential as they taste naturally delightful and at the same time are a popular drink even in conventional beverages.

Recipes for GM Diet Day 4

Cabbage Soup recipe for Day 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 sliced green peppers

Procedure:

Boil onion, peppers, cabbage and celery in water together with salt, pepper and herbs for flavoring. Any flavoring may be used as long as there is no fat included. Extra vegetables may be added except for beans as they add extra calories. Serve hot.

Banana Shake Recipe for Day 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 2 glasses skim milk (almond milk or a very lite coconut milk will be fine as well)
  • 2 glasses crushed ice

Procedure:

In a blender, mix all ingredients until a creamy, frothy shake is formed. No sugar is required as the flavor is already naturally sweet. Serves 2.

  1. Can I eat in the Mid Morning and in the afternoon banana and milk or no?
    And another question , why not after the third day includes a snack?
    thanks

  2. Absolutely – you can eat as many as 8 of the potassium powerhouses (bananas)

  3. i dont eat bananas , tomatoes and many other type of vegetables . so what should i eat ?

    • You can use any of these to substitute for Bananas – the idea is to get a lot of potassium – Apricots, Figs, Nectarins, Dates. Remember to limit to 8 count

  4. It feels great to have banana milkshake but only one glass.. but the best thing about GM Diet is looking foward to everyday as the meals vary. That is the only this which keeps me going… I really think if you stick to what veggies mentioned in this website you would lose up to 10 lbs. If you don’t like to eat bananas and tomatoes, then probably you would not lose the weight you intend to lose..

  5. can i use squash as ingredient in the soup? thank you

  6. i don’t eat Bananas due to allergy pl suggest substitute for Banana for Day 4 Diet

    • Anil – You can use any of these to substitute for Bananas – the idea is to get a lot of potassium – Apricots, Figs, Nectarins, Dates. Remember to limit to 8 count

  19. I easily did the first 3 days of the diet. I find day 4 the most difficult. Can i eat more than 8 bananas..

    I had milk shake in morning. after than i ate 2 bananas in office. now i am feeling very hungry and i think i can eat as much as 6-7 bananas in the office itself.. this way i can eat upto 12-15 bananas..

    i dont know how to manage otherwise.

  20. I dunno with you guys, but after losing 6lbs in the first 3 days, I actually gained back a pound on day 4. Sucks!!! Banana day doesn’t work and it was the hardest. After I found out I gained I just cheated with brown rice and veggies for dinner!

    • Hi Jewel,

      I just read your comment and you seemed discouraged about gainning 1 pound on the 4th day, keep in mind that 1 pound is just water weight, not a pound of fat gainned. So don’t be discouraged and try to stick to the plan and weigh yourself the next mornning after day 7 for your true weight lost.

  21. Please advice if diabetic persons can undergo this diet plan?
    if yes, any changes in the diet mentioned.
    please reply immediately. thanks

  22. Its a nice plan. Its my day 4 and i have lost 3 KGs. Yeppieee ! Thanks to all involved in making this plan.

  23. Does anyone know if I can substitute the skim milk on day 4? I do not drink milk, I drink vanilla Almond milk, will this suffice? Thanks!

  24. Hello,

    I am on day 4, and I feel pretty good so far this morning. I was exhausted the last couple of days, and went to bed early last night. So I do feel energized. I’m so happy about milk today! I get to add it to my black coffee, and that alone puts me in a great mood. I made my cabbage and onion stew a night or two ago, and found that I love curry and garlic in there the best! But I leave out the seasoning until I am ready to eat my serving, so i can play around with spices and not get bored. Its delicious.

    I am discouraged though, haven’t really lost any weight and not much going on in the “bathroom” either. Tonight I might try a natural herbal laxative tea.
    What’s going on?

    Question 2: How much skim milk can I have today?

    Thanks!

  25. Can I substitute rice milk, soy or almond milk on day 4?

  26. i dont like soup..will it b ok if only 8 bananas n 3 glass milk

  27. Hi

    I cant stand bananas, can i substitute it with potatoes which is also high in potassium?

  28. Hey, it is day 4 of my GM Diet. Can I have sex today? How many times can I do it? Which pose is the best? I really want to lose a lot of weight.

  29. hi

    can i take buttermilk on the 4th day? if yes than should i decrease the quantity of milk from 3 to 2 or is it ok to consume both the things?

  30. Hi, today I accomplished day 4, I feel good!I lost 3 kilos so far.
    I’m walking daily 30 to 45min after work, drinking 2liters of water.
    Looking forward to day 5 :-)

  31. I have seen three diferent versions of this soup. One consist of 4 packets of lipton oinon soup mix and 6 oinons. Little confused which one I should use????? Can someone please help as I am on day 4 today.

    • I used 2 packets and added extra veggies, but I don’t feel 2 is enough. I am added one more pack, some cayenne, chilli powder, and garlic. TASTES GREAT!

  32. Hi

    I am vegetarian. What can I eat instead of beef, is sprouts ok. Can Diabetic people follow this diet???

    • Hi Supreena,

      I am also a vegeteraian and had the same question in mind.. Do check the Indian version of the GM diet “http://www.gmdietworks.com/general-motors-diet/gm-diet-indian-version.html”. Hope it helps..

  33. Just wondering if this soup is meant to be eaten only on day 4…or is it something we can consume every day of the detox?!

  34. Tom is my day 4 goodluck to me!!! Pls send me the sample recipe from day 1 to 7 so I could. Repeat it after a week. Thanks.

  35. Hi,
    Can I substitute chicken with beef of Day 5 & 6??

  36. can i have sex during this diet?

  37. khatija, yes you can

    smart boys, of course…

  38. Can you substitute a potato for the bananas? Or unsalted peanuts? I am looking for potassium rich foods that I like as alternatives to the bananas for day 4.

  39. I am starting day 4 of the diet and I do feel alot better within myself. Having said that I am a little dissappointed that I have only lost 1.5kg, I’ve gone from 64.1 to 62.6 and I understand that people that have alot of weight to lose will naturally have more dramatic weight loss results but I hope to get back down to my goal weight of 58kg. I am going to make home made tomatoe soup today and i’m wondering if thats ok to eat instead of tomatoes on there own tomorrow?????, as I struggle to eat tomatoes but love tomatoe soup. Also 1 thing I have found contridicting on this site and i’m hoping hasn’t effected my weight lose is in “diet tips” it states that the wonder soup may be eaten as of day 4 but in the wonder soup rcipe it says it can be eaten as a supplement on anyday of the diet and at any time??? I have been eating it in small quantities since day 1. CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THAT IS RIGHT OR SHOULD I HAVE WAITED UNTILL TODAY?? Thanks

  40. I am on Day 4 and not lost a single ounce :(
    The 4th day is the most difficult to manage with only bananas, milk and soup.

  41. I do not consume red meat, so even for the sake of this diet, I refuse to eat it. Has been at least 7 years since I last had beef. I am skeptical when speaking about chicken, because it is loaded with hormones these days. In this case, would tuna (in water) work as a substitute? I know that tuna from a can is not the healthiest option, but I am seriously running out of ideas how I could handle Day 5 (which is tomorrow for me)?

  42. Quorra…. for your day 5 you could substitute Beef with Pork…. If you are stuck on Fish…best choice is salmon… rather than tuna

  43. I am on Day 4 and I feel GREAT!!!!! I didnt have a chance to make the cabbage soup and I brought in some Tomato Soup for lunch and a snack- I hope this doesnt affect my weight loss.. Any ideas from anyone on soups to replace the cabbage soup (something I can get in a grocery store)? I havent weighed myself BUT the difference in my clothes is amazing. I also noticed my skin is clearer and I have a healthy glow..Go GM Diet. I am going to restart this diet after day 7 and see how it goes. HELP someone for today!

  56. Hi,

    I am on GM diet, good tummy due to cesearian. Am on day 4 and not sure i have lost weight or not. But i am following this diet exactly the same. I am not doing any exercise but goint to office and doing other daily task. Please suggest me after having veg soup in lunch still feeling hungry what else i can have now?

    Thanks

  57. On day 4, is it still ok to drink lots of water? It wasn’t listed. Thanks.

  58. Today is my Day 4. My scales read on the morning of Day 1 – 241lbs. Morning of Day 4 – 232lbs. That’s 9lbs lost upto now!! I’ve been very strict. Not eating anything but what the plan states I can, but I graze all day instead of eating set meals and snacks. Not feeling hungry or deprived, had a headache on Day 1 and 2, but that’s past now. I’ve got a 2 litre bottle marked with lines so I now each hour to pour a glass. Looking forward to tomorrow (beef). Can’t wait to see the final results. Will post on Day 8 the final total on the Day 7 comments. Good luck all on your 7 days!!

  59. Today is my 3rd day. Already lost 2 lbs.

  60. Day -4 Started with 94.4 Kg. I’m very Happy..

  61. Started day 4… 8.5lbs down…. Amazing. Drink lots of water and space your meals/snacks 2.5 to 3 hours apart.

  62. I’ve lost 10 lbs after Day 5. It’s now “Feast Day!” I’m doing the elliptical for 30 minutes/day at the gym along with some weight training. You can do it, too!!!

  63. I can drink water on day 4 also right? I’m assuming so, but was just curious

  64. 2 small Bananas and warm Mill breakfast gave me first burp in these days.

    My colleagues are telling me that I may have lost some weight. The temptation to ride the scales is hard to resist – but I will check my weight only next day after finishing

    Hunger pangs are not going away though. My route to office has quite a few street joints offering food and aroma makes one feel a bit down – but motivation comes from comments and innfer feeling of light stomach and self control exercised all these days.

    Now i realise how religious people can hold fasts and observe stricter eating patterns. I think I will follow the fasts partial fasts as per my religion – if not for religion – for the good it does to my body.

    Anu keep up… :)

    Cheers!

    Abby

    • We are celebrating eve of Republic Day in India. There was a celebration at my office – quizzes, music and general camaraderie and banter was on – I was totally in to it and and I ended up sabotaging my diet to a small extent – there was some sweets and a bit of byte size snacks. I had 2 pieces of sugary and milky product sweets and 2 pieces of salty snack. I am not feeling bad though – I am keeping up the rest of the days as strictly as I have been with so far.

      I just had dinner with bananas and milk and burped again :) so far so good.

  65. will someone confirm do we start with the cabbage soup on day 1? so many sites have this diet, and there are conflicting “rules” about when to introduce the soup?

  66. I am on my fourth day now and have lost abt 3 pounds. Was feeling a little low yesterday but today morning the feeling was gone. Considering that I have been sticking to the diet strictly and my weight has not really shown any huge change, I wonder if I have lost any real weight or its just water weight that has gone down . Also its difficult to go for a run on this diet.

  67. Hi there.
    I am just about to start day 4 – but I am allergic to bananas and milk. What can I do?
    Can I drink soy milk and change the bananas for something else high in potassium.

    any help would be much appreciated!

    thanks

  68. hi,I am on day 2,but can I swtich day 4 with day 5,i mean bananas on day 5 and beef/fish on day 4??? i have to go to a BBQ and i can not refuse,,anybody did it???

  69. Dear Sir,
    I have stared GM diet yesterday. Is ii OK if I consume Yogurt/ Butter milk on day four.
    BR,
    Kamesh

  70. i am stricktly following gm diet. And on second day night i lost nearabt 1 KG. Today going to close my 3rd Days i am in office till 11. pm and i asked my roomate to bring bananas for tomorrow.8 banan and 4 glass of mlll….But milk without sugar….how is it possible ..cn we use sugar free.

  71. I hear people not liking something in this diet, I too do like some of the food, like onions the thought of 6 was horrifying so I but i put them in the magic bullet and pulverized them into mush, then added it to the soup, Yummy…. I hate milk and banana’s, made a shake of them added some cinnamon and chugged it down. I have not weighed myself today but after day 3 , i had lost 6 lbs, so i now it works as it is written, so if you want to loose weight, i say follow this strictly. :D

  72. This stuff definitely works, i am on my 3rd day now and i already lost 2 kilos..
    and i feel really great!! Thanks for sharing this to us!!

  73. I didn’t really expect much when i started the diet. However, I am on my 4th day and so far i have lost 2 kgs ! I followed the diet on the first three days diligently…I hope after one week i don’t end up gaining all the weight i have lost…will try to keep up a modest diet with no sugary or oily stuff after this diet ends !

  74. I dont drink milk substitute for milk

  75. This diet was great for quick weight loss. But unless you live it and continue long term, the weight comes back
    I slowly introduced normal food, and gained in 6 months the 22 pounds i lost plus some. Not worth it. Unless, cabbage soup is what you desire to eat for your lifetime. I suggest this diet to look good for an event or reunion, but long term results will take ALOT of discipline.

  76. on day 4. haven’t lost much.jus 600gms off from day 1. followed strictly. can i have more than 8 bananas. 3 glass of milk & 8 bananas not enough. i have severe headache today. i m cranky. can some one suggest what i can have

  77. Hi..

    Today is my 4th day and I’ve lost 4kg. I’m happy…….

  78. I did the 7-Day GM Diet, and from 118 lbs, I went down to 110 lbs. But I forgot the soup angle on Day 4. I was strict on myself for the whole week, following each part (except the soup). I think my weight radically went down by Day 4, and I panicked a little on Meat Day. I think that this has been the most effective weight loss program for me. I’m going to do it again (after this past two months) and I was wondering — how often can I do this? I intend to do this on the first week of each month. :)

  79. I did eat some grapes on day 2 and 3 and today morning (day 4). Had two bananas in the morning. Can we cut on Bananas a bit and eat some other fruits… If other fruits doesn’t help, want to know if it has any adverse effect on weight loss…I’ll be taking a glass of Banana shake for lunch. I like Grapes… Don’t want to compromise on %ge of weight loss if grapes are not allowed on Day 4. As I have some so far (till Day 4). Please let me know if eating grapes is fine or not?

  80. DAY 4: I dont eat bananas. I am replacing with dates. How many dates can i have on day 4?

  81. my weight was 92.6 kg D1
    90.9 D4
    still expecting to reduce at D7
    will do it till i get my weight for height
    my ht is 180
    so my weight should be 180-100=80Kg
    can i do gm diet continuously

  82. Done with my fourth day, it was great :-) I am feeling light and my body feels so refreshingly new. Below is what I followed during the day

    1. Breakfast (8 am) I glass 200 ml low fat milk (without sugar) and two small size (Mal bhog) banana

    2. Mid morning (10.30 am) one (Mal bhog) banana

    3. Lunch (1.00 pm) I glass 200 ml low fat milk (without sugar) and two small size (Mal bhog) banana

    4. Post Lunch (3.00 pm) One bowl vegetable soup

    5. Evening (6.00 pm) I glass 200 ml low fat milk (without sugar) and two small size (Mal bhog) banana

    6. Dinner (8.00 pm) I glass 200 ml low fat milk (without sugar) and two small size (Mal bhog) banana

    Tomorrow is feast day and I am substituting chicken for beef. All excited, this diet plan is very scientifically design unlike any other I’ve come across…best wishes to all. Please be committed for the entire 7 days and watch your result. :-)

  83. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have learn this put up and if I may just I wish to counsel you few interesting things or tips. Perhaps you can write subsequent articles referring to this article. I want to read more things approximately it!

  84. Hi,
    I am on my 3rd day and have not lost even an ounce :( not so happy ,but will continue…wish to lose at least 3kgs…although while serving dinner to kids I cheated and took a bite from their meal :$ ,could that be a readon ..but it was literally 2 bites of wwbread ! i really hope to loose some weight after all this struggle….

  85. Hi,

    Can i anyone please suggest if i can have calcium sandoz instead of milk on Day 4 as i am allergic to milk?

  86. Hi, I about to start day 4 and I haven’t lost any weight. I excercise every day as I have before I started the diet so maybe that’s the problem. I don’t know what to change I haven’t cheated I’ve done very well with meals and I’m frustrated now. HELP!

    I feel very thirsty throughout the day ,and I drink somwhere around 5-6 litres of water..so can I drink more water than its is mentioned.
    Please reply fast

  91. Hey…
    I am on this diet since 4 days….today is Day 4 n i have just lost 1.8 pounds…when i read comments posted by people losing upto 11-12 pounds,i feel very discouraged…I have been drinking 1 cup of tea/coffee everyday n haven’t been working out. Could that be a reason for such a negligible weight loss???? How do I know what is t that i am doing wrong?

  92. I’m beginning day 5 this morning and have followed the diet without cheating all week and have only lost 2 pounds. Is this normal? Is there one day when the weight just comes off and I haven’t gotten to it yet?

  93. Starting Day 4…. Checked my weight today morning and have lost 2.5 kgs already…. Waiting to see the weight on the end of 7th day

  94. I started my GM diet yesterday, I did a mistake I had GM soup at night along with fruits.
    Will my diet work OR should I start from the begining?

  95. Some may say stay the course, I am big on just starting over since you just started….

  96. I am following gm diet from yesterday..I wasfeeling very good.today is my second day and I was feeling very low from evening.and I had taken rice with veg….should I continue my gm diet or should I start it again from tmrw…pl suggest me..

  97. Stick to it, so to me start over and get it right, the key here is not swaying.

  98. I started on 18th June. This is my fourth day. I have lost 3 kgs. Good diet plan..

  99. Hi Ritu, you should continue and dont give up. Its likeif you can sucessfully manage your first 2 days then you can easily sail through the remianing days with ease. Remember to have lots of coconut water or limewater. Grean tea is a must. In the morning have multivitamin tablet- muiltivite gold after your breakfast and feel the difference.

  100. Are you supposed to drink skim milk or is 1% milk okay

  101. Says skim, but the difference between the 2 should not be enough to matter.

  102. alternative for cabbage soup??? :-D thanks..

  103. Cabbage soup? Not really, kind of a biggie on this diet, you can eat the soup with all the other veggies and not the cabbage, but I would not do it… Tough one, Maybe someone else has a better suggestion.

  111. wow great job :)

  112. Hello Sir,

    I ate yogurt on 3rd day night with brokali, cucumber , lettuce. Is it OK? Tomorrow Thursday is my 4th day and I have fast on that day. Is it Ok if ate Banana and milk only in lunch. Can I eat apple orange on day 4 lunch as well? Pls advise as early as possible.

    Thanks and Regards,
    SACHIN S

  113. Howdy :)

    Yogurt in day 3? I assume it has sugar in it? May be a really bad choice. Yogurt here is loaded with high fructose corn syrup and to me is essentially void on anything good.

    Day 4 here.

    Sound like you’re not eating, you have to eat, the soup is key here…

  115. Can i drink water as well as milk today?

  116. you can always have water, and look at the sample above for timing, you can have milk

  117. Day four and I have lost 5#’s….Love this diet. Started out nervous with the Banana day but its going well….Banana’s and milk do not agree with me and I am substituting Almond Vanilla milk due to lactose issues…Good Luck Everyone :)

  118. Good idea on the almond milk, I can only do Raw A2 dairy myself…

  119. can i eat mangoes

  120. fresh mangos yes, dried no

  121. I weighed in this morning of my 4th day and I lost 7 lbs! 2nd day is the hardest for me.

  122. Awesome..
    Day 1 of diets always easy for me. Days 2 and 3 always the toughest :)

    But this diet is easier because you can eat more food than many diets and still works.

  123. Hi
    I am vegetarian so plz tell me any substitute for day 5,6 and 7.

  124. Can we have tea with skimmed milk during these 7 days of this diet? I can’t do without having tea.. Please advice if I can hav tea with skimmed milk in these 7 days?

  125. Assuming there is no sweetener I guess so ;)

  126. Before GM diet—–71.8 kg
    1st day—————70.6kg
    2nd day————–71.2kg(bcoz prepared potatoes and vegetables in (1 spoon) oil for the b-fast and lunch respectively)

  127. GM diet had helped me loose 6pounds in my first week and another 4 pounds the next week. I am on my third week now and is used to the diet meal program. My worry though is that I have GERD and I am just worried that this might have effect on my diet plan.

    Also how long should I do the GM diet plan?

    Thanks for this abrupt weight loosing program, it did wonders to my health. I now feel lighter and it feels good. Now my knee and hip operation can be delayed further as long as I can maintain having a light weight.

    Appreciate your feedback and response.

    Thanks again

  128. At some point, you will want to do the lifestyle change, the diet to me can only be done so often and 3 times in a row may be tough. Glad to hear it has helped you. I ended up going Paleo after dieting to jump-start my weight-loss and my GERD is 100% gone.

  129. I am now on day four. This is by far the easiest day for me as I love bananas and milk. How much milk is the maximum allowable amount to be consumed, by the way? I’m halfway through a liter and it’s around lunchtime. Also, is it okay not to have the soup today?

    I’ve been having a blast with this diet, I started at 67.9 kilos, on my second day I was 66.9, on my third day, I was 65.9 and I can’t wait to see how much I’ll lose today.

    One more great benefit is that I don’t get chapped lips anymore (I’ve been suffering from burnt lips for a decade now). Didn’t apply lip balm in the last few days. I also noticed that my skin has become more supple and moisturized.

    Will do another round and will probably alter my eating habits and lifestyle after this.

  130. Hello Kia
    Be careful not to drink too much milk (I think it recommends 2 glasses) and follow the examples as close as possible :)

    When i had a chapped lip issue it was due to a food allergy, I cut lost of things and it went away like yours did, maybe that was it? Once you come off the diet and re-introduce foods, looks for changes like that…. Introduce new foods slowly to see if they cause an allergic reaction or something.

  131. Going my day 4 today
    Starting weight:68kg
    Current:66kg
    I had none sweet and original flavor soya milk in the morning. It’s definitely non-fat product but has the same protein as the milk. I hope it’s okay. As I don’t have skim milk at home.

  132. Alister, if that’s all you have go for it :)

  133. I messed up day 3 with day 4 diet !!! what shall i do now !!! please help :(

    Had banana and milk on day 3 instead of day 4 !!!

  134. i’m on day four! i had 2bananas and a glass of milk in the morning, I’ve been having headaches since day one but hopefully i won’t have them today.
    i’m kinda confused about day five – beef and tomatoes.. can i boil the meat and have it with tomatoes?

  135. Regarding the wonder soup, I did not manage to find the Lipton soup, so can I just mix the rest of the vegetables together without the Lipton envelopes and still have it on day 4? Thanks in advance

  136. Hi admin, sorry for asking too much, but would it be a nice idea if I blend 2 of the bananas and freeze them, and then eat it like an ice-cream?

    Many thanks again!

  137. Day 4:

    Breakfast:

    1 Glass warm milk
    1 big banana

    Snack:

    1 banana

    Lunch:

    I made a soup: tomatoes + onions + 1 red bell pepper + herbs + 1 banana

    Snack:

    1 glass of cold milk

    Few hours later: 1 blended + freezed banana (like an ice cream but the idea was not that successful as it wasn’t that tasty as I thought it would be :/ )

    Dinner: Banana + milk (banana milkshake – I think this is a bit heavy for the evening)

  138. By the way, I went down from 79 to 76 on my fourth day and I am very very happy!!! Thanks to the inventors of GM and the continuous support of the admin!!

  139. I think tomorrow will be difficult :((((

  140. It’s my 4th day n all I v eaten since morning is a glass of milk for breakfast and a banana for lunch. Even then I m feeling so full!! . Should I force myself to eat the required amount of bananas and milk to make up for the potassium and calcium loss for the past 3 days or just eat how much I m comfortable eating ?? Plz reply soon

    • Tough question really! Part of me says yes push through don’t fast, at the same time eat when you are hungry. Your decision, my gut say try and eat a little more, people find more success eating what they should. But don’t worry, just do your best.

  141. Tomorrow is my Day 4.
    Can I use double toned Milk instead of Skimmed Milk???

  142. Day 4 ends… Lost 1.9 Kilos…. :)

  143. On my fourth day I only lost 1kg this time and last time I lost 3kg on the same day, I am quiete disappointed :(((((((((((((((((( What am I doing wrong, author???

    Today I ate:

    Breakfast: 1 banana + 1 glass of milk

    Snack: banana

    Lunch: Tomatoe soup

    Snack: banana
    later: 1 glass of milk

    Dinner: babana + 1 glass of milk

    I am losing hope now :((((((((((((((((((((((((((

    • sorry, my recommendation is waiting at least 2 weeks to do it again, preferably a month. Right away after you just finished, tough….

  144. I thought that it would not matter that much and the effect of the diet would still be seen :( It is because the body will kind of get used to the diet and take no longer effect?

    • Diets can vary, from experience I say once a month, your real test is what you do in between to me. Also, other factors can be your cortisol levels are off. Do you sleep from 10pm til 8am or so, or are you up all night? So many factors…

  145. Yes I definitely know that one must eat healthy and exercise in between, but it seems that even with that I’m not losing weight. I sleep from around 11pm – 6.15 since I need to wake up for work. Obviously in the evening I sleep more.

  146. Where shall I go after I open that link please?

  147. how many banana and milk must take plz reply soon its my day tomorrow i like both

  148. can i substitute beef to chicken and how much for tomorrow plz tell

  149. 2 glass of milk and 8 bananas large is it ok i cant understand

    • No, where does it say 8. Please everyone stop reading other copies of this diet elsewhere, they are not real! It is 4 total, plus milk plus SOUP! Does everyone not see why it is wrong to eat 8 bananas in a day period? Keep in mind if you look at the comments, the people with the most success follow it and stick to it. They don’t make alterations found on other sites.

  150. breakfast (banana and glass of milk)
    lunch (veggie/wonder soup)
    dinner (soup and shake – 2 bananas, 2 glasses of milk, ice)
    Snack (banana and milk or a little more soup)

    You can use spices, cinnamon great for you (especially blood sugar), will be good with bananas and milk.

  151. !!!!! I am on Day 4 and lost 2 KG already !!!!!!

  152. Can i use corn flour to thinken the soup a little?

  153. Hi,

    Can we have thunder coconut in our GM diet course?? This is second time i am doing GM diet in first time i have lost 3 kgs.

    • coconut water is fine, be careful with the meat, I am all for it outside of the diet, inside be careful, there is a certain amount of fat to have and not have, but having a tablespoon or so should be OK…

  154. Im on day 4 and following the plan sternly.. For day 5, shall i have brown rice with chicken??

    simi handa

  158. Can I have sprouts? Like moong and chana? Tea? Is brown rice compulsary? Or the regular white rice will do?

    • i prefer organic white basmati, so white is fine but not instant rice. you need a little healthy oil/fat with the rice. tea fine no sweetener though. sprouts can be some of your veg when you have veg, yes.

  159. Is spinach allowed? Spinach soup and oats? On 3rd 4th day?

  160. I am in day 4 now… while preparing soup I used corrot, beans, cabbage, capsicum, onion and tomoto. Also I added ginger garlic paste for flavour. Pls let me know is this fine?

  161. dumb question but are we allowed to eat the veggies in the soup? or just consume the soup itself?

  162. hi,
    Today 4th day i was 73kg before this diet. now i am 70kg on 4th day morning. so happy……… thanks to gm diet……..

  163. Was 107kgs when i started. was bloody tempted to eat some good food … but then i have made it almost thru day 4 …. day 4 morning measured 104 kgs. I’m feeling happier and lighter :P

  164. If you keep this lifestyle change going, healthy foods become good, takes time for the body and taste buds to adjust.

  165. How much of brown rice can we eat on day 5?can I prepare tomato rice on day 5?

  166. 1.5 cups uncooked… Yes you can have tomato rice…

    So where did I go wrong? I am feeling great though :-) ….Really need some advice…..thank you

    • Not bad, but no extra potato day 1 at night really bad before bed. day 3 where is your protein / meat? are you sure your following the diet here only? how many bananas are you having day 4?

  188. Hi,
    Thanks for the reply, yes I had half boiled sweet potato for dinner on day 2, I felt bad after :-(
    I didn’t see anywhere on day 3 menus and description that we can have protein/meat I follow all the tips and instructions from this site,
    As for day 4, planning to have 5 bananas all day, 1, 5% fat milk and soup ( cabbage, capsicum, onions and carrots) , water and couple of green tea,
    Still why havent I lost even 100gm?

    • So tough, can be so many reason, the potato was big error that late and the lack of meat. Please read day 3 again…. do 4 bananas, what we say to do…. You diet overall though in one sense looks great. hang in there, finish it out then we can chat about it then :)

      • Today is my day 4. even I did not eat meat on day 3….nowhere does it say meat on day 3…only veg and fruits. Please tell, are we following wrong diet? I lost 2 kg in the first two days, but hardly any on day 3. pleeeeeeese clarify..is it because my diet went wrong?

  189. Hi
    I followed first three days without compromise n feel energetic n doing regular cycling. I got mandatory leave for this week n I decided to follow gm diet to keep d body fit n reduce unwanted weight. I shared this systems to my friends n got positive comments n they also practice. Can u say alternative choice to skip beef because I need to follow this Easter festival.

  190. legumes work, with some oil of course….

  191. Hi
    Beef contain protein fibre n iron . should we take iron for dates, protein for soyabens n fibre for ???

  192. Hi
    Can I take alternative option for beef because I need to follow Christian rules during Easter times

  193. OK tomorrow I will take legumes n bean

  194. Hi
    For day 4 lunch, celery is not available near by area so give me alternate choice to mix with soup

  195. I am on my day 4 of the GM diet.
    I did not weigh myself after starting the diet , will leave that to the end ( just in case get disappointed after a few days )
    On the first day I gave in to “temptations ” and ate some cheese and a pita bread ( plus lots of watermelon, apples and 1 pear )

    Day 2 Stuck to the diet but no potato in the morning ( I hate potatoes , is there a need to have something else ? I did not feel hungry )

    Day 3 was great ; fruits and veggies combined , plus vegetable soup was the easiest day !
    Day 4 I am indifferent to bananas but I had 2 so far today. I would like to substitute non fat yogurt for milk , I
    find milk difficult to digest.
    Beef – Day 5 can I have trout or chicken instead ? Good beef is not available here. No soup on this day ?
    Brown rice – Day 7 can’t I just have veggies instead ? brown rice is not available where I am.

    • You are missing so much, you are not really following the plan, huge cheat day 1, no potato (or sweet potato) with fat day 2 and no protein day 3. Day 5 yes you can do either.you can have soup when you want. not really, do white rice or quinoa.

  196. I don’t take milk.what’s the alternative on the forth day?

  197. coconut milk. almond milk for a start…. yogurt also…

  198. Hi, I am on day 4 everything is OK so far lost 2 kilos. For the fifth day can it be as follows
    1 2 eggs and vegetables
    2 snack: chicken Caesar salad
    3 lunch: cup of rice with beef and cooked vegetables
    4 dinner: soup

  199. I’m on my day 4, can I eat raw vegetables instead of vegetable soup on this day? thanks!

  200. Hi,
    I am on my 4 day but i m unable to loss even a single gm of my weight, although i have cheated a bit,I use to take tea during the plan .Will it affects or i have to restart the Plan.Can i take veg corn soup which are available in the market instead of wonder soup.

    • well cheat and you will likely not lose, sorry. you can restart. no you cannot have the market soups. Corn soup a HUGE no.

  201. I ate small bowl of corn on day3. Is it ok…

  202. I am on day 1 of the diet and so far have stuck to melons almost exclusively and feel pretty good. I am concerned about day 4. I am not lactose intollerant but HATE milk. Is it possible to substitute 3 1/4 cup servings of fat free cottage cheese for the milk? I saw that you mentioned yogurt is okay to swap. Would it have to be plain nonfat, or would vanilla nonfat be acceptable? Is it alright to use stevia or another natural calorie free sweetner to the banana on day 4?
    The diet allows spices, but can you add things like hot sauce or other condiments provided that they are free of oil, sugar, and fat?
    Last one (promise!), what about capers?
    Thanks in advance :)

    • You can do the cottage cheese. Yogurt is fine but no sweetener. However a little stevia is OK, but you cannot over use it and never use the other fake ones. However, bananas are already sweet so don’t use. Stevia you should not over use, but the fake sweeteners cause a host of health issues including weight gain.

      Yes or hot sauce, make sure it’s pure, no preservatives and such. Salt, pepper, spices and herbs are OK. A few capers is OK as well.

  203. Dear sir,
    Im on my 4th day. I need to know three things
    1. Should I only do it for one week, If I stop this diet will I get bulk immediately.
    2. Is it ok to go to the gym and have green tea with this?
    3. I dont eat beef, What should I eat tomorrow (day5)?
    Regards,
    Yomal

  204. 1) yes, you can try again after 2 weeks…
    2) yes no sweetener, maybe a little stevia is OK.
    3) eggs, fish, legumes, etc

  205. Is porridge allowed on this day ?

  206. Hey,
    I am on my 4th day of GM Diet.
    I have lost merely 1 kg till now. :/
    Following has been my diet:
    Day 1:
    Fruits, mostly watermelon, 1 glass sugarcane juice.1 boiled egg at noon.
    Day2:
    Vegetables- stir fried veggies – carrots, capsicum, onions, cabbage. Afternoon- bitter gourd, slightly cooked.
    1 boiled egg at noon. Evening: bitter gourd.
    Day 3:
    Mostly watermelon. Cucumber- sliced and salted. Bitter gourd, 1 glass sugarcane juice. Two tomatoes. 1 boiled egg at noon.
    Day 4:
    Have taken 2 bananas with a glass of skimmed milk in morning, followed by one boiled egg at noon and one banana at afternoon.

    Is taking egg prohibited? I was having that to ensure a good amount of protein.
    Also, I am having excessive bloating, my tummy size has grown more than before and looks really awkward.
    What could be the reason for that? Any tips to treat it?
    Thanks a lot.

    • That’s because you are not following the diet we have set for you. Sugarcane juice day 1 and eggs, HUGE mistakes. Too much gourd also. Please try and follow what we did. I am huge on protein with every meal for balance, but after the program.

      Do you typically hold lots or most of your weight in your tummy? Let me know.

  207. No. Most of my weight is around my thighs and waist.
    But I have had this bloating problem, however things never got so exaggerated.
    I shall now stick to the diet.

  208. sir, can i take yogurt with brown rice???

  209. hi,
    I have some questions:

    On fourth day, to prepare cabbage soup can I skip celery in it.Or what else I can add in place of celery.

    on fifth day, can I have brown rice with any Dal or I can have Tomato rice. (Iam totally vegeterian)
    Please suggest.
    THanks

    • No replacement needed, skip if you like :)
      yes you can, replacing meat you need protein and some good fat with it.

  210. I cant believe I am 6 lbs lighter this morning after 3 days. I also go to the gym every day, 1 hour cardio and workout. It’s not water weight because I ha ve already been on a strict diet for a month now. I am glad that I tried this. Cant wait to see the weight loss after day 7.

    • I really think that I have lost more than 6 lbs..because my monthly cycle starts in 3 days…so I have to take that into consideration….women bloat…so..I am really anxious to see t he results after day 7. woop woop\

  211. I had boiled cauliflower and raw papaya in dinner on 3rd day.is it fine?

  212. its my 4th day,I skipped breakfast, I was not feeling any thing to have in morning.Now can i directly jump to mid day snacks.

    pls suggest what to do.

    • Skipping meals is not great, however the best day to do so would be day 4 and I totally understand not wanting something, I used to never be hungry in the morning.

  213. Only 2.5 kg lost after 4th day.I wanted atleast 5 kg to be reduced.After 7th day is this poosible to reduce more.

    • People that don’teat processed foods, sugar, flour, etc afterwards tend to keep losing, then do the diet again and lose even more.

  214. can i add dates along with fruits on day 3

  215. Day 4 … I have weighed myself and happy happy happy to see a 70.5 in the machine.. remember I started at 73, so 2.5 kg in 3 days..

    Today I have taken half glass milk in the morning.. will have banana now.. I understand I can eat upto 6 banana’s..

    Feeling so great about how I will look after 7 days when I will losse apprx 4 to 5 kg I guess… :)

  216. Hi guys…

    today is been a disaster in terms of my diet food in take.

    I have had only 1.5 glass of milk and just one banana whole day. reason, my office canteen didn’t had milk and banana supply today. evening, I had to skip my meal forcefully..
    but yes I had lot of water and now off to sleep, will do the full fledged food intake from tomorrow morning..
    by the way, my weight is 69.7kg

  217. I don’t eat ripe banana. What can be the substitute for it on day 4 of GM diet?

  218. i made a few changes on day 4 by substituting dairy milk for soya milk. i made my soup with two jars of tomato sauce. i was shocked to find that one jar contains about 5g of salt. will this ruin my progress?

  219. btw i had like eight bananas cuz some sites say you can. this one says i should have stuck to 4. i dont know if i should just give up now. its so discouraging after coming this far

    • yes, there is nothing healthy about 8 bananas, those are fake versions of the the original plan here. sorry yes it can really hurt. We don’t say here eat tomato soup on day 4, can’t help there, sorry. I will say 8 bananas and tomato soup are bad.

  220. last week i failed at day 4. this week
    breakfast: 2 bananas and light soya milk
    pre lunch: 1 banana
    lunch: large bowl of the veggie soup
    snacked on cherry tomatoes through the day
    dinner: left over veggie soup, 2 bananas and milk
    I had five bananas in total but I had a really active day so I hope that will make up for it

  221. Hi,

    Today is my 4th day…. 3rd day was quite difficult for me specially after having mid day vegetable soup in which i mixed bottle guard, capsicum, tomatoes, onion and carrot and sweet corn.(as i m thyroid patient i cant eat cabbage, broccoli etc) after boiling all together i ground all the vegetables and mixed in vegetable broth and added boiled sweet corn also…for seasoning pepper, salt and lemon worked very well…it was very tasty but too heavy to digest..in the evening i was feeling too bloated and fuller that i had to take some digestive…at the same time i was feeling very low and had a sour throat…took medicine and relaxed…by the night i was on my feet again and started feeling good….then in the night i ate boiled vegetables like bottle guard, capsicum, onion, carrot etc. seasoned with home made coriander and mint chutney. but night gone too uneasy cause my BP gone drastically down….immediately i had to eat one mini banana as i was feeling too low…somehow i managed to sleep but only for 5 hrs..today morning i checked my weight after three days i lost almost 3 kgs….

    • Hang in there. As a thyroid patient, I understand staying away from goitrogenic foods. Are you gluten free also?

    • Hang in there. As a thyroid patient, I understand staying away from goitrogenic foods. Are you gluten free also? Keep going…

  222. can i substitue yoghurt in place of milk

  228. had peas day two …problem?

  229. on day four can I substitute milk for curd and bananas for mangoes. …two mangoes ….plus tomato soup with veggies. …that is broccoli beans spinach carrot

  230. not even curd made of toned milk…hate milk …causes bloating….

  231. Day 4 started…. I am excited!!!!…. Today my weight was 91.0 1.2 kg less so far…… I am still hoping i can reduce around 4 kg by end of 7th day…. :)

    Had 2 small bananas and 1 glass milk…
    I will keep having combination of butter milk and water as its a great combo…. and tastes good :)

    Lets see what will be the result on day 5 :) :)

  232. Starting the Day 4… Have lost slightly over 2.5 Kg in 3 days … started with 92 and am slightly below 89.5 today…. and that … makes me happier…. :) )))

    All excited for my favourite fruit banana and the favourite Breakfast of Banana sliced over Milk … :) But that only leaves me a bit worried as well that I may gain a few pounds by consuming Banana and Milk, and may overeat as I am fond of them…!!!

  243. Hello Author,
    How are you? Thanks for your suggestion on Day 2.

    I am on day 4 now and have made sure not to over drink water. And I do remember your golden rule now, ‘drink when you are thirsty.’

    I would like to share that before starting GM diet, I used to hardly drink 4glasses of water a day, and now I feel naturally thirsty and can easily drink upto 10glasses.

    As of End of day three, I have lost 2.6kgs. Not bad, eh!

    Stay well, and thanks for bringing this site up. Am gonna post again if I face issues.

    And yeah..am just loving the Milk-Banana-Soup day and looking forward to the steemed chicken with indian spices day!! :D

    • Hello, how are you?
      :)
      Good news, some days I drink more than others, likely has to do with my diet those days or how active I am.

      Awesome loss.

  249. now am in 4th day of gm diet. but no weight loss till now, is it changes come on day 8? can i expect?

    • What did you eat day 2 and 3. when are you weighing yourself? yes best to see what happens after day 7. You must only weigh in the morning after you first get up and after you go to the bathroom. Do not drink or eat anything first until you weigh.

      • ok.. day 2 i ate only boiled cabbage and beet root with onion.. on day 3 i ate apple grapes and same vegetables. yes third day night only i weighed. thanks i hope surely i ll reduce.. bcoz strictly i am following this diet…

        • well technically not, you missed that key potato and butter. ITS A MUST!!!!!

          Day 2 ,eating only 3 veg so to speak is not good. Less is not more here. You also cannot weigh at night.

          Sorry you may want to read each day again carefully.

  250. on day 5 and 6 instead of chicken / meat can i take brown rice

    • yes, white is better. you need some good fat with it. meat has fat. like olive oil or ghee.

      rice is not a great meat sub, legumes or quinoa is better at least.

  251. Is it OK to use almond milk… sweetened or unsweetened? ?

  252. :( I don’t have any milk all I have is almond light milk so I have not had the bannana with milk.

  253. today day 5, i ate tomato in the morning.. lunch i planned to eat brown rice, plz suggest my dinner

    • Hello
      So you don’t eat meat, I understand. But where is the meat substitute for breakfast? If you eat a sub for meat, that sub like rice needs good oil/fat, like olive oil. This is NOT a fat free diet. You need good fat…

      I suggest legumes, quinoa or eggs to replace beef if you can.

  254. For day 4 can I have any vegetable soup for lunch (zucchini, tomato, onion)? And what about days 5 and 6 can I have fish or chicken in some meals instead of just beef??
    Thank you so much for your help so far.

  255. Thanks alot its very informative :)

  256. Hi All, I just started the diet. I am on day 4 but I cheated yesterday with chicken and potatoes for dinner. Should I start over or should I continue with Day 4?

  257. Today is 4th day
    Break fast : 2 small banana with 1 glass milk
    Mid Morning : 1 banana
    Lunch : 3 small banana with 1 glass milk
    Dinner : 2 small banan and 1 glass milk

    is this ok ?

  258. I am really confused as to how many bananas are we suppose to have on the 4th day. The FAQ page says not more than 4 bananas whereas another page on home page of your site says upto 8…please clarify as two contradictory statements have been provided in your website..

    • What is the Url of the page you mentioned. It may be worded wrong, on the homepage there is not mention of bananas. It’s 4 reg/lg bananas or 6-8 small ones.

  259. Wat to drink in place of milk .. coz i dn’t drink milk…

  260. I dont see any mention of paneer on this website, I’m assuming this means don’t eat paneer on days 5 and 6 (instead of cottage cheese) if you’re doing the indian version?

  261. can I use fat free milk instead of skim milk on the fourth day?

  262. I never had almond milk but I will give it a try, thanks.

  263. I have been eating a bowl of soup everyday but run out. Do people lose more weight when they have the soup everyday? Just wondering if I should make more

    • They do tend to according to reports. The folks that lose less are the ones that skip meals and eat less. So at least eat the meals and snacks though.

  264. Dear Author.

    Good Morning.

    Thank you for your GM diet program me. First time i am trying this plan.
    My weight was 67.3 KG. I am very active type of person.Working as accountant for a trading co at UAE.
    Even daily am going to fitness first and doing regular jimmying like aerobics, abb exercise, yoga and body compact etc etc my weight remains same.

    So i started GM diet and am in 4th day Diet. Many many thanks i lost 2.2 KG in 3 days and am following
    strictly your diet plan and also going for my regular workout

    Today i will be in cabbage and capsicum soup diet and banana with milk/ Hope this diet will help to reach
    my ideal weight of 62KGs

    Thanks a lot

    Regards
    Jai

  265. I am on day 3 today and will be on day 4 tomorrow .i hate bananas and milk .Can you please suggest substitutes and in what quantity? I read that dates r ok but only 8 and instead of milk one can have unsweetene d yogurt?am I right? Pleeeez help!

    • Dates are not OK at all, you did not read that here. You can have some unsweetened yogurt, a couple will be fine. Just pick another fruit to replace the bananas. All should be good.

      • Thanks a million! I have already lost 2.5 kgs in 3 days. You’re suggestion is that I substitute banana for any one type of fruit or a variety of fruits ? On day 4 can I continue my soups and veges? Can I have sprouts with sour curd?

        On day 5 can I cook beef with vegetables in addition to tomatoes? Instead of brown rice can I gave normal white rice? Can I continue having soups fruits and vegetables on day 5? Would appreciate your support and guidance:)

        • just pick something fresh and local, pineapple will work, it’s up to you.

          A few veg will be OK, not too much. Yes white rice is better anyway. No fruit on day 5.

  266. Can I have some fruits instead of having the soup. I kind of dislike soups.

    • no, you can have steamed veg. Veg and fruit are totally different. Fruit has lots of carbs, natural sugar, etc. The soup does not, that’s why you can have it all of the time.

  267. I look forward to this day the most. I freeze 7 bananas. Then for breakfast, lunch and dinner I make a milkshake with a glass of milk and 1.5 or 2 bananas. It’s like eating icecream. I skip the soup because I’m a little veggie’d out by this day. If I need an afternoon snack I eat the frozen banana. But normally the 3 shakes keep me full. Freeze them the night before and make sure there is no green on them. They are sweeter because the starch has broken down into sugar.

  268. Hi
    I am a partial vegetarian can I replace meat with beef kababs (shami) on day 5 or should stick to brown rice only?

    • well technically legumes better than rice, white rice better than brown, and yes you can do that kind of meat, just make sure you know how it’s seasoned, NO MSG, no sugar, no wheat, etc…

  269. pls can u mail me a sample gm diet for day 4…….

  270. Hi team,

    how much water should I have on day 4

  271. You are right Kevin!! Went for a 5 km walk, came home and vacuumed and cleaned the house. Full of energy!

  272. Can we eat cooked vegetables today.

  273. Don’t know exactly what day I have Rice, but how much am I suppose to have for that whole day.and Hamburger how much.

  274. I have lost my desired weight on 3rd day-3 kgs. I am in shape now . I want to stop now from 4th day to continue. my health doesnot allow me as iam feeling very low.

  275. How many bananas and how many glass of milk should I take on day4??

  276. 2 week on GM diet.I hardly have any appetite for mid day snacks.Is it OK not to have if not hungry or must follow the pattern.
    Many Thanks
    Ruby

    • Yes, eat when you are hungry, but try not to under do it if possible. eating less is not better. Just try and find some balance there… :)

  277. What diet do u suggest between two gm plans???
    how much is d ideal gap to maintain between two gm diets?
    how many times in 2 .onths can i follow this plan?

    • wait at least 2 weeks to do it again. I recommend 100% sugar and gluten free. If you are eating wheat, the weight will come back. I recommend a balanced plan, balanced between good fats, good carbs and protein. Look at the top 2 posts here.

  278. Today was my 4 day but due to some rituals i had to eat rice n dal and all… I had lost 1 kg till now, should i continue or start again from first?

  279. Hi I want to start GM diet but 4th day is mentioned to take banana and i m allergic to banana. i start vomiting if eat even one small piece of banana. So is there any replacement of banana?

    And one more thing i have a hypothyroid so do u thing this plan will help me to reduce weight?

  280. I think i made a mistake. I am on day 4.
    Had 1 banana and skimmed milk in the morning… later 1 glass water.
    Around lunch i ate a grilled eggplant.
    Plan to have soup in the evening and milk and banana as told by you.
    (I have prapared enough wonder soup to last me 2 days now)
    Was the move on eggplant wrong?

  281. Can i add olive oil to the veggies in the diets plan?

  282. On 1, 2,3 day is it ok to use salt over fruits and vegetables

  283. I also cooked all sprouts along with 1 spoon butter, half spoon salt and leman.is this dish is ok to have..actually this is very testy.

  284. Can I eat dry fruit fig instead of banana on 4th day as i m not able to eat banana at all??

  285. Hi,
    I don’t eat beef or pork. could you tell me if i can substitute with salmon.
    Thank you.

  286. It’s a 4 th day for me,
    I lost 2.5 kgs in 3 days!
    today I had 2 bananas in breakfast,skipped Millk as I dont like to drink it.
    for lunch I will plan to have one banana and tomato soup(2-3 cup) from my office vending machine(its a powder soup, but I feel better as winter is going on here)
    for dinner I will plan to have 1 banana with Millk and cabbage soup or GM soup(Unlimited quantity ;) I hope that’s fine)

    • Nice :)
      I’m not gonna lie, scary eating soup from a vending machine, do you have nay idea what;s in it. These things will affect your weight and health in the long term, You may get away with it temporarily now. But not in the future. The junk that’s in that soup is scary likely.

      Other than that, good …

  287. am on the first day of diet plan according GM diet 5th Day is used to tomatoes but i wont like to eat raw tomatoes , please let me know the what can i eat instead of tomatoes, veg only.

  288. hi Admin, I’m on the 4th day of GM Plan ( banana with milk)
    after consuming these 2 food, I having 4th times diarrhea. what should I do now?
    thanks

***Before asking your question, please understand that we are only here to help and these are our opinions. Also make sure you read and understand the entire diet before doing it. 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
