Continuing on with our series on GM Diet. You can find day 1, day 2, day 3, day 4 here. On the fifth day of the GM diet weight loss routine, followers of the diet are now allowed to eat beef matched with tomatoes (5 to 6 large tomatoes should be good for the day). On this day the body’s protein requirements are addressed, but not to the extent that they will be followed up with fat. Beef is used in this case as it is rich source of protein and fiber, and it does not have to be consumed in large amounts just to fulfill the cravings of one’s appetite.
Preparing yourself for Day 5 of GM Diet
When on Day 4 followers of the GM diet are allowed to consume bananas, milk and soup, on Day 5 they will be subject to only beef and tomatoes. They loss of appetite will continue to be felt on this day, and it is no longer a surprise for them to eat only sufficient portions of been and not gore over it like before.
Due to the lack of appetite for most foods, it is important to have just small servings of beef during meals. Large servings may only make the appetite worse, and this may as well continue for the next few days. It is thus best to serve the beef with good amounts of tomatoes so that the taste buds will be brought back to life.
GM Diet Day 5 Breakfast
Breakfast may start with braised beef and soup. This will keep the stomach heavy and full for most of the day. The soup provides energy, while the meat becomes a source of protein, iron and fiber. It can be a bit boring to eat beef but it may be paired with a sliced tomato.
GM Diet Day 5 Lunch
A hamburger patty (no bread!!!) may be consumed during lunch time together with tomatoes. The hamburger (no bread!!!) may be baked or fried but not in too much fat, as it already contains its own fat material. Since the body will be producing extra uric acid, it is likewise recommended to drink extra glasses of water to flush the urine out naturally.
GM Diet Day 5 Dinner
Another hamburger (no bread!!!) may be eaten by dinner, although health experts recommend beef soup and tomatoes so that the body would feel more energized. The soup also supplements the water lost during the day.
GM Diet Day 5 Midday Snacks and Beverages
During Day 5, the only beverage allowed to be consumed is water, and not juice. It is because the body has already been given doses of juice for the past three days, and water helps a lot in flushing out the excesses for Day 5. Drink up to 14 glasses of water on this day so that the body system will be detoxified and get rid of unnecessary nutrients provided by the meat.
