GM Diet Indian Version

The GM diet is among the most popular diet fads practiced by Indians mainly because of its vegetarian attributes and reduced consumption of meat. This weight loss management system also appeals to Indian delicacies that dwell mainly with vegetables. Women in India find this diet system to be helpful since it allows them to shed off their excess pounds and enjoy a long term weight profile without undergoing major alterations in their current food intake.

The Indian version of the GM diet does not vary too much from that of the regular version except for the beef intake in Days 5 and 6. For the Indian version, cottage cheese can be used as an alternate to beef. Thus for diet, cottage cheese is served as a substitute to beef and this works very well. For folks that are not vegetarian and who eat fish, fish can be a great alternate to meat and can be used in meals and diet plan schedule.

Beef Substitutes

Aside from beef, there are also other foods that rich in iron and protein, such as red kidney beans or low fat Paneer. Spinach and bean sprouts, as well as soybean curd or tofu and 1 cup brown rice may be used to replace beef in Days 5 and 6.

GM Diet Indian Version

The Indian version of the GM diet is pretty close to the original. There are slight changes and they are described below.

  • Day 1. All fruits. All kinds of fruit may be consumed except for bananas. 10-12 glasses of water should be consumed throughout the day.
  • Day 2. All vegetables. All sorts of vegetables may be consumed during the second day. Potatoes may be served during breakfast to boost energy levels. A mixture of greens and boiled vegetables as well as the GM diet wonder soup may be served during lunch and dinner.
  • Day 3. Mixture of fruits and vegetables. A mix of fruits and vegetables may be consumed on Day 3, together with 10-12 glasses of water. Bananas are still not allowed in this day.
  • Day 4. Banana and milk. Skim milk and banana, together with the GM wonder soup or any type of vegetable soup may be served on this day. For Indian practitioners, yogurt may be served instead of skim milk.
  • Day 5. Brown rice, curd and tomatoes. Soybean curd or 1 cup of brown rice may be used as a substitute for beef, or a cup of cottage cheese. Tomatoes are important to match with the day’s meal, along with cucumbers.
  • Day 6. Brown rice and vegetables. On Day 6, brown rice or other beef substitute will be matched with vegetables, but potatoes are still restricted. It is best to consume cottage cheese and soybean curd in vegetable bowls.
  • Day 7. Brown rice, vegetables and fruits. Two cups of brown rice may be consumed together with unlimited servings of vegetables and fruits. Fruit juice may also be taken along with 8-10 glasses of water.

  2. Hi Would it be okay to substitute beef for Lamb. I personally have no problem in eating beef, but as its not readily available in India, it poses a problem.

    Also would it be okay to substitute it with chicken

  3. Hi

    Its just awesome… This is a second time I am trying GM diet…Beleive me or not…both times I lost 6-7kgs…Its just after this week you need to control your habits and its like complete refreshing… I am sure many people attempt it but Day 2 & 3 are the most difficult ones. After that its easy and you are basically proud of yourself. I followed this thing:
    Day 1 Just Fruits (Apple,Pear,Pomegrate (good oxidizer), sun-melon (half)
    Day 2 Salads basically cucumber and radish with sprinkled black salt and squeezed lemon.
    Day 3 Combination of Day 1 and Day 2
    Day 4 8 Bananas and 1L milk. ( I made banana shake with 5 bananas and 500ml) believe me its heavy
    Day 5 I don’t eat beef so chopped 4 tomatoes, 1 Cottage cheese, 2 bowls soya and 1 bowl peas. Cook them with 1 teaspoon oil and add spices accordingly. Its awesome dish.
    Day 6 I just added curd to Day 5.
    Day 7 I added fruits and veggies (Day 1 and 2 serving) with small amount of Day 5 & 6.
    Day 8 : 7.8 kgs lost !!!!
    Better try it people … It works ….
    regards
    Big Bob

      • hi Anusha.

        You can just eat brown rice. No White Rice or roti. These are prohibited completely.

        • Hi,
          GM diet is slightly different from yours. And as you lost 7.8 kgs, I am willing to follow your diet. But have some doubts.
          1) In GM Diet it was clearly mentioned that start day 2 with boiled potato. Did you also did the same thing?
          2) is it compulsory to have roti or rice on day 5 and 6? I mean did you have it or not.

    • Hello sweety,

      It is strange that it didn’t work for you. You must have eaten the wrong things. Avoid eating bananas and Sapotas. It gains weight. Don’t take too much tea to kill the apetite, it will end up with high sugar level. Drink plenty of water. It is must that we shouldn’t deceive ourself and eat something secretly. Please do some exercise at least for 30-45 minutes. The diet will really work for you, if not then please provide the details of the things you used to eat during diet, we can surely help you out.

  40. Hi,

    I have started the plan.. Can you please tell me some subsitute in case Brown rice is not available around?

  41. Hi,

    I heard about this diet from my friend. She has followed this diet 4 times till now and is ready for the 5th cycle now. Looking at her, I started believing that this diet works, because she was really huge (after delivery of her baby :)) and now she is all fit. I was skeptical about the side effects of this diet, but my friend is absolutely fine and full of energy (she can tirelessly run after her kid, who is a naughty 2 year old boy!) So, finally I will be starting with this diet. (Since weekend’s coming, I will be starting it from Monday :) ). After reading all your comments, my belief has turned into faith and I am sure it will get converted into result!!

    Just FYI: Since I know many people reading these comments are mainly interested in knowing whether this diet works or not and how many kgs were lost; I am giving details of my friend: In Feb 2012, she used weigh around 85 kgs. Within a span on 5 months, she did GM diet once in a month. She wasn’t doing any exercise, but her kid used make her run. (so better add some light exercise along with the diet). Now, before she started with the 5th round of diet, she weighs around 63 kgs, i.e. she lost around 24 kgs. (6 kgs per cycle, on an average). She has managed to keep her weight off for these many months (hats off!). After each cycle, she eats normal Indian food, but with less oil, sugar and spices. No outside or junk food. Being a Punjabi, she is in love with her food, but she still managed to reduce the calories in typical Punjabi food (with less oils, spices and more of boiled and baked food)

  42. any subsitute for brown rice….. brown rice is not available here…. will brown bread with vegetables be fine???

  43. Also … what should be had for breakfast,lunch and dinner on day 5,6 and 7 and also the quantity… am in day 3 now…. pls let me know asap…..

  44. sir , I tried GM diet . after one week i am feeling very energetic and fit internally but there was hardly 01 kg weight loss. can u tell me follwing i want to do it again
    1. the quantities of fruits and vegetable or foods should be how much (in approx grams) which is consumed.
    2. can we use black tea/ coffie with lemon and how many times in a day ( no suger that is clear )
    3. alternate for beef and browne rice 9as this rice is not easily available.
    4. is it compulsory to take physical exercise.

  45. i think the banana part is rubbish..its full of fat man!..so maybe il substitute it wit cornflakes or sumthin…watsay guys?

  46. lets know how the diet works……

    Day One you are preparing your system for the upcoming programme. Your only source of nutrition is fresh or canned fruits. Fruits are nature’s perfect food. They provide everything you could possibly want to sustain life except total balance and variety.

    Day Two starts with a fix of complex carbo-hydrates coupled with an oil dose. This is taken in the morning for energy and balance. The rest of day two consists of vegetables which are virtually calorie free and provide essential nutrients and fibre.

    Day Three eliminates the potato because you get your carbohydrates from the fruits. You system is now prepared to start burning excess pounds. You will still have cravings which should start to diminish by day four.

    Day Four, bananas, milk and soup sound the strangest and least desirable. You’re in for a surprise. You probably will not eat all the bananas allowed. But they are there for the potassium you have lost and the sodium you may have missed the past three days. You will notice a definite loss of desire for sweets. You will be surprised how easy this day will go.

    Day Five, Beef and tomatoes. The beef is for iron and proteins, the tomatoes are for digestion and fibre. Lots and lots of water purifies your system. You should notice colourless urine today. Your allowance calls for the equivalent of five “quarter ponders”. Do not feel you have to eat all this beef. You must eat the six tomatoes.

    Day Six is similar to day five, Iron and proteins from beef, Vitamins and fibre from vegetables. By now your system is in a total weight loss inclination. There should be a noticeable difference in the way you look today, compared to day one.

    Day Seven finished off the program like a good cigar used to finish off Victorian meals, except much healthier. You have your system under control and it should thank you for the flushing and cleaning you just gave it.

  47. What oil is recommended for Indian Cooking and can we consume any oil in this diet?

  48. I’ve completed this diet plan today and have lost 4.2 kgs. This works only if one sticks to the basics and overcomes any temptation for foods outside the diet plan :)

  49. I am following this diet for the 3rd time this year. The first time I did not really measure the weight loss but I had lost 4 kgs the second time – and have been able to maintain it too! Thats why I planned to go for it again!! This time, today is the end of my day 5, and I had lost 2 kgs when I had checked my weight this morning. SO 2 kgs in 4 days… :) :)
    I agree that we should any temptations for outside food.
    2 more days to go.. I can’t wait for Monday!
    And also thanks to many people, I have learnt few good ways today to make the diet plan less bland! :)
    All the best to everyone!

  50. I did the GM diet every alternate week or two weeks over three months and believe or not i lost 30 kilos from 110-115 down to 85. Feel much nicer and fit and surprise surprise fit into clothes i used to fit into in my masters!!! its an awesome feeling !! highly recommended and it has no side effects whatsoever!!!

    ate them coz was totally drained… and couldnt resist …. repent it though…

  71. hey today is Day 1 : I need encouragement to keep going…everytime I say ,” I will eat now and will start tomorrow” . I don’t want to do this for this time.

  72. Hi Neha,
    All the best with the GM diet…I also used to do the same…i too used to think that i will start from tomorrow but as we have learnt it since childhood, tomorrow never comes so i finally started it .. I am a total foodie and cant give up on food. I have always said that I can exercise a lot but can’t give up on food.. :( … Anyway….My day 1 was pretty good but day 2 was horrible….coz i don’t like much vegetables but fruits make me really happy :). Day 3 I was almost about to give up since I could not control my craving for tea since it was a very cold day. I talked to my hubby and he kept me really motivated and told me not to leave it in between….he said i was almost halfway through though i was only on day 3 :p..but that really helped. Today is my day 4 and i am not having any craving yet…lets see how the remaining days go :). Really hoping to lose some good amount of weight. Also I had made one thing very clear to my brain…even if i don’t see any weight loss in the first couple of days i will still continue and think of it as a body cleansing treatment. So whatsoever don’t give up!! All the best to all the GM diet followers :)

  73. hiiii..i am starting GM diet 2day…hope it works :-)…i have a lot fat in belly will this diet help me out to get rid of it… plzzz let me know.. waiting for feedback :-) :-)

    • Hi Disha,

      I have been on the diet only for 4 days now –so not much of an expert. But I am a huge tea drinker– drink tea — Light with only 2 spoons of milk .. And I have not stopped that. 3 cups a day is normal. Tried having Lime tea on day 1 . Day 1, 2 are tough . But that too only if you dont eat.
      I ate whenever I was slightly hungry. Crunching and munching on Pomegrenade and Watermelon … after a while..it kills the hunger. Luckily noone was with me eating Biryani and such ! ..
      1 kg down right now and gearing up for Day 5 .
      Try again … I think it will work .

  77. This is my third day. Can we use chicken instead of beef in the day 5 and 6

  78. Hi all, I’m on my 5th day today and have lost about 3 kgs so far. I had tried the GM Diet on 2 previous occasions too and lost about 3.5 to 4 kgs each time. I’m a 37 year old male, 5’9″ and weighing 88.8 kgs before start of the diet this time.
    Will let you know the results at the end of the week… I’ll be finishing my 7th day on Friday and can’t wait for Saturday morning. ;)

  89. Hello all,
    This is the first time I’m following GM diet plan..
    I’m on day 4 and I had little spinach with banana and milk as i was too hungry.
    What can i eat on day 5? one bowl of rice and 6 tomatoes is very little to consume for the entire day..

  90. Hi sprouts n buttermilk can be added diet .

  91. Hey Guys!
    Was really motivating and shocking to read all you guys comments… great to look at people who are going through the same confusion … lol … I don’t like vegetables and fruits much … hahah … so yea still am trying to eat it. ..i love aloo …but eating it with a pinch of salt boiled was like pain in d ass. …in my day 2 … will post after 5 days… I wna lose atleast 5 kgs!

  92. Hi Everyone,
    I am doing this GM diet for the 2nd time and it definitely works. The best part is its fairly easy and there is no restriction on the quantity of the food.
    day 1 and 2 are a bit hard but If you survive your cravings then you have won the battle.
    It always better to do it with your friend or husband or anyone in the family as its easy and then you get all the support and no cravings.
    Also its seen if you exercise you achieve maximum effects.I lost 4 kgs first time and then I have been losing weight after that even though I was back in my old eating habits but I guess I am more careful now and have been drinking lots of water.
    hope this helps,

  93. today is my last day. lost 2 kgs altogether. feeling gud. but need advise ….what to have for breakfast on day 4…5…etc. also if the GM diet is unlimited then 1 portion of rice or 3 portions of rice in a day shud not make a diff ???

  94. it was my 5th day .. i hadhalf burger and cocunut burfi extra.. though m regretting wat i do :(

  95. hey guys…

    i came thru this page about 2 months ago and even though i could not follow the whole thing which is written over here, i ate reasonable amounts guided by this page and did 2 hours of cardio everyday and it paid back in dividends. i was around 85-90 kgs at the start of december and today i am 75 kgs and i have never felt better to be frank!! my advice for everybody is don’t lose it drastically as it can cause to increase your weight at the same rate. Avoid eating junk foods and even if u have craving for it, take small amounts and that will tell ur brain that u have tasted what u have been wishing for. And exercise atleast 4-5 days a week and u can maintain ur body as u wish. Good Luck !!

  96. it really works….

  97. Can we replace BROWN RICE with WHITE RICE?

    Or anything VEGGIE?

  98. I am from india, and day 4 , 5 and 6 links point to something western diet (beef, hamburger etc).
    Please suggest some alternatives to Rice, as i dont like to eat rice.

    Please suggest accordingly

  99. Hi ,

    I am doing it for second time. First time i lost 4kgs. Today is 5th day…2 days more to go… hoping for best results this time. :)…One tip Drink more water.

  100. Hey all!
    I am starting GM diet from Tomm.. I have read all the comments. I need to know how to cook the vegetable for days having vegetable.
    I am 71 Kgs today n i’ll post the results soon after 7 days. Fingers crossed!

  101. Hi Teja and seema,

    Please advice about post diet practice after GM diet, is that really more stringent that we should never talk white rice and oily foods? will it have adverse effects??

  102. I have been taking this gm diet since 15 years from now

    Its given a success to me in earlier days.

    never the less, the observations are below which I had observed only this time

    1. Second day evening I tend to get a guidiness and vomitting, I presumed it to be low BP and tried to use few pinches of salt. then it was fine

    2. A kind of bloating and gastric issue started in my stomach from second day evening and it was so severe, it was spreading across the whole back the next 2 days and I had to take gelusil to come out of it

    But I still continued my ;GM diet.

    Now, what will you have on 5th day with rice?( I know its tomatoes ) but what will it go with

    How do I avoid the gastric issue. was it factored by the dietitians during the 2 & 3 days.?

    As of the earlier times I have not experienced such things, but I have heard my friends saying this as a major
    issue on the first and second day, that they were not able to do it because, they felt like throwing and had a low bp.

    Any suggestions on how to overcome this.

    TODAY IS MY 6th successful day. WISH ME ALL THE BEST :)

    CHEERS
    AJITHA

    • Ajitha,
      I had it at the begining. I found the reason was due to less water intake. See that you drink more water. increase the intake if you have the giddy feeling.
      I take green tea with lemon (twinnings is my favourite, without sugar/honey/sweetener. I started loving the bitter taste). This will balance/keep your bp at normal level. it increases hydration also. While you are in first three days, avoid coffee. see that your body is enough hydrated. Caffine in any form will dehydrate. Take a cup of the raw beetroot juice twice if you feel that you have low blood pressure. But keep in mind roots of anykind is high in carbs and may disturb your diet.

  103. Hi

    I followed the plan for 7 days finally reduceded 3.5 Kg .. Thanks to GM diet plan..

    Thanks
    Puneet

  104. HEY, ALL,
    I HAVE TAKENT HE GM DIET WITH LOT OF TEMPTATION

    1. I JUST HAD FEW PINCHES OF SALT ON THE THIRD DAY AS I HAD A GUIDINESS DUE TO PROBABLY LOW BP,

    2. I HAD TO TAKE 5 ML OF DIGENE ON THE 4TH DAY AS I HAD SEVER GAS PROB, SPREADING ALL OVER FROM TUMMY TO BACK FOR MORE THAN 2 DAYS

    3. 5TH DAY ONWARDS I TOOK I CUP OF RICE AS PER THE DIET PLAN, BUT ONLY WITH V.SMALL AMOUNT OF SAAMBAR. AS I DINT KNOW HOW TO EAT JUST THE RICE.

    OVERALL THE FIRST 4 DAYS WERE VERY DIFFICULT. I DIDNT MEASURE MY WEIGHT, BECAUSE I DINT HAVE THAT OPTION, BUT ITS SEEN IS WHAT MY PPL SAY.

    BUT AM SCARED TO TAKE IT FOR THE NEXT TIME IS THE EXPERIENCE, THOUGH I HAVE TAKEN THIS DIET SEVERAL TIMES EARLIER.

    BUT WHAT IS THE NEXT DAY MORNING DIET, IF THAT IS PRESCRIBED, WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO AVOID THE TENDENCY OF GETTING BACK TO THE NORMAL FATTY DIET.

    • Ajitha,
      I forgot to mention in my earlier reply to you about the gatric problem. Eat a whole green apple when you feel uneasy in your stomach. drink pleanty of water. This will suerly solve your issue.

      After the diet, gradually introduce fat and carbs. To avoid craving, see that you eat tasty but healthy food. Avoid outside food. replace any oil with extra virgin olive oil. yet this should be a far low in level. reduce sugar intake. Hate rice like poison.

      Dont wait for you to get hunger and then eat. Fix the eating timing at regular intervals (generally 6 times a day) and eat only the quantity that is sufficient. Eat before you get hungry so that you dont eat more. Substitue snacks with fruits and boiled grams/pulses. keep your body active as far as possible.

      Hope this helps.

Today’s my 2nd day and I did get a few hunger pangs but I can deal with it! Five more days left, really excited about the results!

    All the best :-)

  130. Feels good to see so many people successfully losing weight with this diet. I’m a recent graduate from Delhi University and have always been on the heavier side, can’t really imagine myself to ever be slim. But I guess I have had my wake-up call (I am 21 and almost touching 80 Kgs now and that’s pretty scary), and I am already walking around 60 minutes in the morning and 45 minutes in the evening since past four days. I’ll start with the GM diet from tomorrow, alongwith my dad for moral support! :) I’ll keep you all updated with my progress.

  131. Yesterday started with GM diet
    Before Day1 weight = 70.5kgs
    Day1: Have fruits with little salt – Lost 1.2 kg, Today’s weight = 69.3kgs :-)

  132. Is Sprouts(Green gram)/Sweet corn cab be taken on Day 2 ?

  133. this is a super useless diet, i could do it for just 3 days and by the end of the 3rd day i was left with no energy, but one thing i learnt through this diet is having control over what i eat all day…i started liking salads more than ever…i am gonna diet but actually not this way…i am losing all my energy, this will definitely not work for me as i like to involve my self more with physical activities unlike just sitting dull and missing food or thinking about it wht to eat next :((

  134. hi..

  147. Can a diabetic person follow the diet plan.if so what is the alternative diet

  148. Hi All, im on day 3 and have already lost 2.5 kilos. Feeling light already.. If you guys have any issue do post your qs and i would be glad to assist you..

  149. Sayli you cannnot have sweet corns but yes you could subsutuite it with potatoes on your second day morning for breakfast. sweet corns are high in carbs and hence not recommended. You can have in the morning that too only after 5th day in moderation.All the best

  150. Guys any of you facing headache is bec of tiredness and hunger. Have multivitamin tablet- Multivite gold in the morning after ur breakfast and include lots of grean tea, lime water or coconut water(without malai) everyday and feel the difference.

  151. Hi Friends.I started GM diet just yesterday. Stayed on water melons in morning. apple papaya and ended with Water melon. Had lots of water. May be 8-12 glasses of water. Had green tea one time and black coffee in the evening without sugar. I have bad addiction of tea and coffee. But could manage without it. I lost 3 kgs in just one day. Today is my second day and i have started with black coffee without milk and sugar. Will have wonder soup for lunch and salad for dinner. i will add very little black salt garlic and lemon juice with green chillies in all my food for the day.. My day went well had mild headache. Also i walk for 20mins. Believe me its all in your head and psychology that u cannot do. its easy and do your regular work withought thinking of ur diet all the time.Yes Vegetarian can sustitute beef or non veg with ankurit chana and moong. Soya means nutriela. No Rajma(kidney beans, pinto and lima). Do it honestly and u will succeed or u cheat and gain and all handwork on vain. I did many times GM diet and i follow this link strictly only that i replace beef with veg from another link. mix both. Also can follow vegeterian advice by Bob….

    Hi

    Its just awesome… This is a second time I am trying GM diet…Beleive me or not…both times I lost 6-7kgs…Its just after this week you need to control your habits and its like complete refreshing… I am sure many people attempt it but Day 2 & 3 are the most difficult ones. After that its easy and you are basically proud of yourself. I followed this thing:
    Day 1 Just Fruits (Apple,Pear,Pomegrate (good oxidizer), sun-melon (half)
    Day 2 Salads basically cucumber and radish with sprinkled black salt and squeezed lemon.
    Day 3 Combination of Day 1 and Day 2
    Day 4 8 Bananas and 1L milk. ( I made banana shake with 5 bananas and 500ml) believe me its heavy
    Day 5 I don’t eat beef so chopped 4 tomatoes, 1 Cottage cheese, 2 bowls soya and 1 bowl peas. Cook them with 1 teaspoon oil and add spices accordingly. Its awesome dish.
    Day 6 I just added curd to Day 5.
    Day 7 I added fruits and veggies (Day 1 and 2 serving) with small amount of Day 5 & 6.
    Day 8 : 7.8 kgs lost !!!!
    Better try it people … It works ….

  152. I tried this few years ago (when i put on weight after marriage :) ) and broke it after day3. Later had an accident (two years ago) followed by surgery and thyroid which shot up my weight by 20 Kilos. Tried exercising and all other means but work timings, thyroid and the post surgery effects couldn’t permit me to effectively follow them.

    I started it again with a target of -30 kilos by dec 2013. This time i am committed not to break. Today is my day 4 and gives me a much lighter feel. I feel that i can repeat this once/twice in every month. Had mild head aches but practising pranayama (breathing exercises) helps. Keping my fingers crossed.

  153. can u suggest any good alternative for brown rice???

  154. Qunioa? Mung Beans?

  155. Can I take sweet corn soup instead of wounder soup????????????????? pls reply……………

  156. no you can’t on the corn, sorry…..

  161. hi
    i decided to start the diet from tomorrow.im having pcos..si i dnt know whether dis wil be effective for me.and i have some doubts..can i take grilled chicken on day 5 and 6 instead of brown rice?because i dont like rice.
    i hope i can loose some weight..as im thinking about a baby,,…

  162. yes, but make sure it’s fresh chicken, not packaged full of salts, sugars, etc.

  163. can i add mushrooms in wondersoup?beacuse i have heard that mushrooms are good for weightloss.

  164. They are in some cases…
    You can add a few to the soup though I guess :)

    The best thing though for weight loss here is sticking to the plan as many have reported for the best results.

  165. Hello,

    I started this diet again yesterday after failing miserably twice before to complete it. I am determined to complete it this time for the 4 days. I cannot continue after that as I need to travel on a business trip, though I will be cautious about what I eat and work out regularly. I am 78kgs now and need to lose around 6 to 8 kgs. This time hoping to lose around 2-3 kgs.

    whenever I feel demotivated and have a craving to eat I come here and read the comments. It works wonders, I feel motivated again.

    Day 1: Breakfast : I ate a half water melon with 3 glasses of water.
    11 am : 1 Apple with 2 glasses of water
    Lunch : 1 Apple, 1 Orange and 2 glasses of water
    Evening : 1 Apple and a bowl of Pomegranate (This was heavy), 2 glasses of water
    Night : half water melon, 1 glass of water.

    I did not feel the urge or craving for food on the first day. Lets see how it goes for the rest 3 days. I am very determined to complete the 4 days this time. I am not gonna check my weight and i’ll do it a the end of 4th day, though I am already feeling light(just wishful thinking?) :)

  166. hi frndz…. can any one pls suggest me can i have chapathi instead of brown rice

    • Chapati is wheat! not a recommended ingredient during this diet. Also, some quantity of oil is always used in the preparation of the dough. so, stick to brown rice, if not tofu.

  167. no on the chapathi – it’s just bread. Sorry

  168. Day 2:
    Breakfast : 1 large cooked potato. I did not add butter but just a pinch of salt and chilly powder. 2 glasses of water.
    11 am : cucumber slices.
    Lunch : cooked vegetables( 1 carrot, cabbage, 1 capsicum, half onion, 1 tomato) with some salt and red chilli powder. I kinda felt that i might have used more salt n chilli..as it was delicious ;)
    evening : cucumber slices.
    Dinner: Raw carrots(1), raw tomatoes(2), cucumber slices. 3 glasses of water.
    I did not drink as much as water as day 1 though :(

    I did feel for craving for food as I went for a movie as everyone around me were munching on cheese, chocolate and salted popcorn’s. Delicious Samosa’s too :(. I am proud that I remained determined.

    Again not sure, how much I lost. I would be checking my weight on the 5th day. Good luck to everyone who’s doin it

  169. Guys,

    Its my Day 3. I am always used to over eat and could never think of fast / starving. But I made an effort its my Day 3 just started and I have already lost 1 kg. Below is my diet for last 2 days:
    Day 1: Mangoes, Cucumber, other fruits
    Day 2: Bf: Baked potato, Lunch: Subway salad, Dinner: Beans cooked with 1/2 tb spoon oil and 1/2 cup cooked dry dal
    Day 3: I am planning to eat Papaya, Apple, Salad and beans again.

    But the inspiration is on! Thank you for 1 kg loss.. I hope it continues!!!

    • Day 1: cucumber is not a fruit

      Day 2: dal is neither a vegetables nor a fruit. it should have been avoided!

      I guess if you had followed the instructions religiously, u’d lost more than a KG by now. I lost 3 kgs by the end of Day 2.

  170. hi..this is my second time following this diet…
    I lost 2 kgs last week with very little excercise. But this time im determined to do half an hour excerise daily but brown rice or tofu is not available here..that might b a problem.
    Can any one suggest what is the third option for this??
    Today is my second day n i hv alreadly lost 1.2 kgs…its the lowest i hv been weghed in years..feels wonderful :)

    Plz suggest me altertaives for brown rice n tofu…im sure thr must b something??

  171. ok.. I could not resist and I checked my weight before sleeping on Day 2, i had lost around 2.8Kgs already :). Now that really encouraged me for day 3. If I had not lost weight or had lost only a KG or less, I think I would have quit today.

    Day 3:
    Breakfast : 1 Apple. 2 glasses of water
    around 11 am: half raw papaya, 1 glass of water
    lunch: cooked vegetables( half carrot, some cabbage, 1 capsicum, half onion, 1 tomato) with some salt and red chilli powder. I also ate some quantity of same raw vegetables.
    evening: 1 orange, half papaya, 2 glasses of water.
    Dinner: raw cucumber slices, raw carrot and 1 Orange. 2 glasses of water.

    I was so tempted to have a good spicy meal for dinner but before I could give myself to temptation, I started munching on raw vegetables for the hunger to die. It worked.! I feel I am lighter already and also my face and eyes has a glow now. feels nice!

    Day 4(last day for me) is 6 Bananas and 3 glasses of milk, hey God, give the strength to get rid of the temptation for 1 more day!

  179. Hello :)
    I certainly think barley water could affect you negatively. Be careful.

  180. I wold say no on oats in this diet… sorry…

  181. i completed my 7 days…and only 2kgs lost..:(
    so decided to take the diet one more week..

    • still you lost 2 kg… u know to hav nothing is !! better to have something so cheers its good somtime its depend on your hormones dear hormones are taking time to get adopted

  182. Hi All,

    I Started in the Morning – My weight is 81 KG.. So lets see the weight after 7 days .. I ll post the result on 12th August . :-)

  183. can this diet be followed while nursing a 6month old baby?

  184. With something medical like this I can’t say yes or no. Sorry. The diet certainly does not lend itself to fasting so you’re eating, may need to ask a doc or go over it and decide for yourself.

  185. Hi pl tell me what we should after 7 days how do v maintain?

  186. Diksha, this may be easier discussed in the forum. http://www.gmdietforum.com/

    Feel free to join and we can discuss – go over.

    I will say give up the sugars, processed foods and go as natural as possible. Good oils, not bad one, and so on. You have to make tough changes to see results.

  187. Thank you for above info. and can I have barley instead of brown rice.

  188. I am not big on barley with this diet.. But ultimately it’s up to you :)

  189. Thanks, I did read forum discussion but I don’t see mush info on what we need to do exactly after 7 days.

  190. Diksha, I meant go here and start a thread so we can discuss, it is different for everyone….
    http://www.gmdietforum.com/forums/gm-diet-after-day-7.6/

  191. Hi, Can anybody guide me, if i can add salt in the meals, specially in rice???

  192. Sale is fine, the more you eat you may hold some water weight, but it’s fine.

  193. Days kg diff
    1 78
    2 76.9 1.1
    3 76 0.9
    4 75 1
    5 74 1 Couldn’t follow diet accurately.
    6 75 -1 Couldn’t follow diet accurately
    7 74.5 0.5 Couldn’t follow diet accurately
    8th day morning 74.7 -0.2
    so tot weight loss 3.3

  194. I had a couple of questions before starting this diet.
    1) Somewhere its written that you can have fruits and vegetables during day 1,2 & 3 in unlimited quantities but somewhere the quantity is mentioned like 1 bowl of melons or 1 orange or 1 apple.
    So I just wanted to know the appropriate amount to consume.

    2) If we don’t include the wonder soup then does it make any difference in the plan? Can i have a normal vegetable soup instead of wonder soup during the allotted days?

  195. 1) The bowls of fruit were samples/ideas.
    2) Depends on what veggies and base you have in the soup but it could be fine if it is similar…

  196. Well try and stick with the samples, some. You don;t have to be exact, meaning change the fruits some if you need, if you don’t have been, do another protein etc….

    • So its better to stick with the diet plan. I mean the amount plus the timing to gain maximum result? After quiet a research i found this diet plan(as I am vegetarian). So is this ok for m as I am weighing 95 kgs right now & need to lose weight very badly? Should I stick with this plan(including the amount)??????

  197. You plan looks fine. Keep in mind make sure you are eating hence having the wonder soup when you want. I noticed sugar, sorry but you have to watch the sugar, refined sugar is a killer to the body and an diet or post diet plan. Nice plan you have :)

  198. hi guyzz,
    I had tried gm diet soo many times, but this I want to replace rice with chappathi,is it fine??? plss answer me soon , as today is my 4th day…..

  199. Feel free to try, but I never recommend any kind of heat or bread for anytime on or off diet. :)

  200. Hello everyone,

    I am vegetarian and I am on 2nd day of the diet…feeling very week and having headache….

    Can someone please tell me the quantity of brown rice or any other vegetarian protein that we can have on 5th, 6th and 7th day?

    I went through the plan but not clear about the quantities and how many time we can have that

  201. can I have sprouts on the second day, if yes what quantity?

  202. Swapnil, quite a bot, they really have hardly any calories per serving, etc. Not that this is al ow calorie diet, but you are on a plan. So eat away on the sprouts.

  203. Hello everyone,

    I am vegetarian and I am on 2nd day of the diet…feeling very week and having headache….

    Can someone please tell me the quantity of brown rice or any other vegetarian protein that we can have on 5th, 6th and 7th day?

    I went through the plan but not clear about the quantities and how many time we can have that

  204. Hey Pooja
    The rice is described on the vegetarian page, 1 cup for days 5 & 6 and 2 cups for day 7 :)

    This can vary some, you are replacing rice every time it says to eat burger, so measurements are uncooked.

  205. Guys tomo is my 5th day and i have a problem in eating tomatoes is there any sub for them please tell me asap cos tomorrow i should be ready for dieting
    and also have a doubt of wether to add moongh dhal with brown rice tomo and how many bowls of rjce should i have for the whole day?

  206. prahaadish look up one post for your rice question, as far as tomato, sub with any veggie.

  207. Keep in mind everyone when viewing the quantity of rice and food, you can have as much wonder soup as you want :)

    If you’re not getting enough food, then you’re not following the diet correctly

  208. I heard that tomatoes are meant to remove the toxic and since i don’t eat them is there any other replacement in vegetables??

  209. Eat what you want if you don;t want tomatoes. Not sure of a good replacement. And you have plenty to eat, with the wonder soup.

  210. Sprouts are fine :)

  211. Hi,

    Today is my 6th day, In next two weeks i have my wedding. So i am trying to loose weight as much as possible. Please let me know if I can continue the diet in the next week as well.

  212. Congrats Vidya :)

    You can follow as you want. I am big on taking a break, but if you cannot you certainly can try.

  213. Pick any fruit really, just stick with it for replacing the banana all of the time.

  214. i m 5ft 4 inches and weigh 89 kg. i want to lose weight fast in 2 months. guide me this diet plan will work

  215. Hey
    I am on my third day of the plan its feels good and i dont have much of craving for food.
    For me 1st day was good but 2nd evening became a bit difficult and i guess its only difficult when people around you eats good food and on the contrary you are on the plan.

    Next week is my bday so my aim is to reduce some before that keeping fingers crossed.

    Just a little bit skeptical as every two to three hour am eating stuff mentioned for that day though i eat in moderate quantity only which keeps me full and no craving for food but will it really help me to reduce i hope so it does …….

  216. And yes i forgot to mention THE WONDER SOUP is actually very tasty and we can add spices too in it which makes it more tastier :)

    Please reply as soon as possible. What can replace Brown Rice & in what quantity?????????

  218. Quinoa would be my best guess…..

    You could do more quinoa than the rice, so maybe 1.5 cups dry, then 2 on that last day

  219. I think Tomatoes are to be consumed only on day 5 for cleansing purpose n day 6 is brown rice with veggies and day 7 brown rice, veggies n fruits

    Am i right please correct me if am wrong cause day after tomorrow is my 5th day

  220. you are correct :)

  236. Hi All,

    I started GM diet and today is my 3rd day. Its a little difficult for 1st 3 days as I am feeling tired and had a slight headache on 1st 2 days. I think key thing is to keep eating and drink lots of water, which I missed doing sometimes. That is why may be I am feeling a lot tired. But it seems like I have lost 1 kg at the end of 2nd Day, which is not like too great as per few of the posts I have seen here. But I am fine with it as this is my first time and point to note is I have not been able to do any exercise along with the diet.
    These are updates for 1st 2 days and I will keep updating.

    1st day
    8:30 AM – 1 cup of papaya + water
    11:00 AM – 1cup of Pomogrante + water
    12:30 PM – Apple,Papaya + water
    2:30 PM – Mixed fruits(Apple,Papaya,Watermelon,Muskmelon) + water
    4:00 PM – Mixed fruits(Apple,Papaya,Watermelon,Muskmelon) + water
    7:00 PM – Mixed fruits(Apple,Papaya,Watermelon,Muskmelon) + water
    9:00 PM – 1 Apple + water

    2nd Day
    9:00 AM – 2 Boiled Potato with pinch of salt + Water
    10:30 AM – Carrot+Capsicum + Water
    12:30 PM – Salad of Capsicum+Onion+Tomato+Cucumber+Spinach + Water
    2:30 PM /4:00 PM – Carrot + Water
    5:00 PM – Cucumber + Water
    9:00 PM – Boiled Vegatables (Carrot+Brocolli+Greens) + Water
    Should have eaten something between 5 and 9 but I could not as I was in bus.

    Thanks and Happy Dieting!

  237. Thanks for the update Raji.

  238. Hi.. This is my second day
    Are we allowed to eat corn?

  239. Skip corn if you can

  240. Hi all

    I tried the Gm diet n lost 3kgs (6.75 lbs).
    However I gained 2-2.5 kgs almost within two days of completing diet. This is despite the fact that I didn’t go on a binge and celebrate the successful completion of the diet.
    I was regular at gym, had regular meals n was hell bent on maintaining my weight.

    So is it normal to gain the lost weight almost immediately after the diet?

    P.s.
    The diet was helpful in reducing belly fat permanently though.

  241. Hey Aby, on good thing is the belly fat area shrunk and stayed. That is great. Yes it can be common, how were you eating after the diet?

    • Hey

      The belly fat has reduced visibly – certified by friends, family n my clothes.
      As for post Gm diet, I had healthy meals, no fast food, oily or spicy stuff n was regular at the gym

  242. happy to see all your results… I’m enough motivated to start my plan from tomorrow… let’s hope for the best… if I see any difference after completion, I will start recommending this diet to friends and relatives:)

  243. done with day 1 and already started feeling better :) I hate to eat raw vegetables..but I have to achieve. god help me today: (

  244. hey I tried it thrice but always left at mid I am not so foodie but yes cant control my Tung … can somone give me the tip to maintain my will power to complete it at-list once. pls pls pls

  260. going to start from Monday wish me luck ….. :P

  261. In 3rd now.. Feeling better..
    I checked weight on 1st day.. no change..:( I will check late and update.

  262. Hi

    Besides reducing weight, does this Diet help in trimming the waistline??

  263. Vidthas I cannot recommend wheat
    Sorry :(

  264. Subhrajit, people report that it really does, even if they don’t lose as much as they want, it really helps in that area.

  265. Good luck Priti :)

  266. HI All,

    i weighed 79.6 on Sept 15. after a bout of viral and then GM diet, am now 73.

    yes, followed the diet gradually as i had done it before as well. so far, its working well and i have kinda carried it into my second week. Belt has new hole as well. and much fitter and feeling lighter than before.

    Now, a few questions to admin is –

    1) how long is it advisable to carry on this cycle at one go? as of now, i can feel i can do well and carry it further, say more than a month at one go.

    2) does the frequency of weight less decrease as we continue, ie. suppose if one loses 4 kgs in one week, will the weight loss be slightly lesser the next week onwards and continued….

    3) the body has a habit to get used to a particular diet and adapt to conserve. how does one overcome this tendency to not drop weight further.

    am planning to take 2-3 days break in between for the next cycle. target weight according to BMI would be 60-65 kilos.

    Appreciate inputs on above.

  267. To me do it once a month or so, Your main success will be how you change your lifestyle after the diet is a kickstarter really. Ad can be quite effective.

    It can decrease, sometimes your body may have issues getting past certain weights or set points.

    To overcome this, just don’t do it too often. The good thing about this diet is that you are not fasting!

  268. Complet 3rd day successfully. But not weigh yet so lets see wht is the result

  269. hey I hav completed my 1st day … but I just want to confess that yesterday I cooked soya for my guest so to taist that I had 1 spoon soya veg… :( will it effect so much pls let me know

  270. Any changes can affect you, so hard to tell. hang in there.

  271. From tomorrow I’m going to start. …

  272. hi
    i have started gm diet and this is my second day .i have one doubt can i use instead of tomato something else

  273. Ushas, maybe eggplant or a tomatillo, if not these try and do your best.

  274. Hi All,
    I am on GM diet for the third day, though felt hungry I somehow managed eating adviced diet. My one question is I never knew that we are not supposed to take salt. How can one eat all the veggies without salt?? Is it true that we need to avoid salt or not?? Please someone advice. I am diabetic and on medication twice daily and need to reduce weight around my tummy. Please someone reply. Thanks in advance.

  275. as long as your doctor is OK with salt, salt is OK on this diet ;)

  276. Hi

    Today is my 6th day. Feeling great but.
    Yesterday i ate brown rice twice with ..two table spoon of
    Sunflower oil.. Will it a have adverse affect on diet..
    Also can i make pulav from brown rice and eat on 6 and 7
    Day

  277. Any changes can like that, however you should be fine… :)

  278. sure, just keep to the right amount of rice…

  279. Thanks for the reply, but my concern was are we allowed on GM diet to take salt. Also I read several post which says that there is a Non-Veg GM diet which allows you to take beef with tomatoes on the 5th day.
    So if I take beef should I forgo rice or take rice with beef and tomatoes?
    Is salt allowed for all on the GM diet??
    Thanks

  280. Today is my 6 th day and i have lost only 1 kg..
    Why so i am really very sad .. Dont know where
    I went wrong with this diet.. :-(:-(:-(

  281. ruchi – head here and we can break down what did or did not do, if you like. http://gmdietforum.com/

  282. Agnes the original diet is a non veg one, so yes look here…
    http://www.gmdietworks.com/general-motors-diet/gm-diet-day-5.html

  283. Can nursing moms do GM diet?

  284. Nandhini, hope you and your baby are well. I cannot say medically what to do other than talking to your doctor about it and showing them what you are eating so they can help you. This is not a fasting diet so that is good.

  285. On fifth day should only brown rice and tomatoes be consumed ..? Tofu or planner instead of beef separately or along with brown rice ? I am on day 4 now so want to know fant .

  286. Anamika, read the regular day 5 menu here and sub meet for a veggie substitute. You seem to be missing food. http://www.gmdietworks.com/general-motors-diet/gm-diet-day-5.html

  287. hi, started gm diet.. this is my 5 th day..i ‘ve a doubt to clarify..how many cups of brown rice can we take ?

  288. Asha the yhave it here: Day 5. Brown rice and tomatoes. Instead of beef, brown rice is used on Day 5. One cup of rice is good to last for the day together with tomatoes in order to induce cleansing.
    Day 6. Brown rice and vegetables. On this day mixed vegetables may be consumed all day, together with one cup of rice.
    Day 7. Up to two cups of brown rice may be consumed, together with fruit and vegetable servings.

    • Hi,

      One cup of Brown rice , does it mean 1 cup cooked brown rice or uncooked brown rice. Exact measure would make it more clear.

  289. completed 7 days diet plan
    lost 5 kgs during first 4 days
    gained 3 kgs during last 3 days because of eating brown rice
    overall weight loss 2 kgs

  290. Puja uncooked

  291. Hi,

    Started GM diet on 18th, weighed 232 lbs on 3rd day wighed 224.21 lbs but on fourth day my weight increased by 224.65 lbs (i.e. 0.44 lbs). To add to this I’am also doing jogging every morning. Just wanted to know is this slight increase in weight normal or do I have to take some precaution.

  292. Can I have jalapenos and olives during my Day 2? kindly rpely

    • Jalepenos fine, olives not really….. Maybe a few but not every day…

      • Thank you!

        I had two small boiled potatoes in the morning, but I felt tired at 11:00, but after having some carrots, beetroots, jalapenos I feel good now. I had 5 small olive rings. But then I thought, the olive oil may be extracted from these, so olives may have some amount of fat in it. So avoided eating it.Thank you

  293. Can I have asparagus added to the vegetables? kindly reply.

  294. Hi, I don’t want to take brown rice on day 5,6 and 7. Is there any alternative option?

  295. Hi,

    Im 60kg n ma height is 5.3ft.. M nt dng any exercise hope it ll help me to shed some kgs..plz giv some suggestions regarding work out

  299. Hello to all….
    For many years, I was fit and fine with me being looked upon by family and friends as the ideal body/health. I was totally a photo freak…never losing an opportunity to capture myself or pose at the sight of a camera.
    But in the last 2 years, my weight shot up 15 – 20 kgs. I hardly look myself in the mirror anymore…my appearance in photos is mostly when I am in some background…and when I do (sometimes) take a pic of myself…I dont bother looking at it again…as I find myself so ugly being fat and looking much older than my actual age.

    Today, I got firm and promised myself that I am not gonna pity myself till I get back in shape. Timeline given to myself is till New Years.

    Had done the GM diet before I put on weight…(just to detoxify).
    Have started the plan today with only a Grapefruit and a plum and lots of water.
    Yes, have started my exercises too from today. Plan to continue each day.

    Havent weighed myself as the weight doesnt matter anymore. It is the inches I am targeting to lose…and guess would know I have succeeded as soon as I start fitting into my clothes again….and/or getting compliments…(which ever comes 1st)….. ;)

    I shall be back to update you on my success rate.
    Wishing all of us the best of luck to succeed in taking care of our health.

  300. Today is my 4th day & I already lost exact 2 kg’s :)

  303. Can Brown rice , replaced by normal white rice and Soya Chunks?

  304. can i take red kidney beans as a subsitute to beef ? after how many days can i repeat this diet plan?

  306. Hey,I am going to start from tomorrow.lets see,what gonna happen..I am 5.83″ weighing 94.5 kg,will tell the result..once i finish my diet.

  307. Author I dint take soup during thesefour days.. tomorrow is fifth day. Is soup compulsory ??

  308. Curd is mentioned to be taken in day 5 .. can I take curd?

  309. Author.. b4 starting my gm diet I weighed 70 and wen I checked on day 3 morning I was 68.3 but today day 5 evening I checked I was 68.8:(( .. but I’m following my diet very strictly. . I don’t know y I increased 500grams..?? May be it’s bcoz of banana n milk whick I tuk yesterday? ? I took 9 bananas and 1ltr of skimmed milk ..

  310. Ya I read it.. it was written upto 8-10 bananas and one ltr of milk.. as per as diet chart only I followed. .
    Soup ibdint drink coz I dint feel hungry p

    • read what on this website or another where someone rather than copy our content fully just changed some numbers? BEWARE! This is the original and way to go. 9 bananas is not balanced and should never be done.

  311. So only 4 bananas are allowed for a whole day?

    • YES, that is what the sample plan says, please 8 to 10 a day? That is so way off balance. Stick to the plan, not from other sites that copied ours and made blind changes. The people that follow this plan and stick to it usually find the greatest success. If you’re mixing plans from another site, bad news.

  312. whats the substitute for brown rice can i have chickpeas on this diet

  313. I took this diet and it works really well. I lost 30 kg in 5 months!

    Can I substitute brown rice with white or
    tofu?

    • Tofu is not a health food or a complete protein, not that rice is either. Yes you can do brown rice if you need to and tofu, that is a personal choice….

  318. hello…am on my day 1

    • Well if you look that the history in the comments it does work. However looking at you meal plan here you are following another diet not this one, so I am unclear how to help you. Sorry, to anyone else reading this, please follow the diet. It can work. We give sample meal plan and tell you no cheating, plus eat the soup. Subway and other fast food should not be eaten, the dressing and food is just full of junk oils and chemicals.

  326. Hi,
    I am on my second weight loss journey with GM diet. Last time i lost 3.5Kgs (from 63 to 59.5)with little bit cheating from day 5 onwards.I did not do any exercise too..now i am 60, and want to shed at least 5Kgs this time. My marriage is in May, so i want to look and feel fit and energetic by that time. Planning to do this diet once a month-My target weight for May is 50Kgs. I am not gonna measure the Kgs or inches lost every single day-i shall measure it only after completing my diet successfully on day 7. Doing some moderate exercise for about 30 minutes.Will update my experience daily-this is to keep myself motivated throughout the diet.. :)
    keeping fingers crossed

    • Juicing can be great, however I am not sure how it will affect you on this diet, straying to far is outside what I can help with,

  333. One more thing is there any substitute for bananas as i am allergic to bananas :-( !

  334. Can a person have a drink wen on this diet

    Day 1 – I had only fruits – Apple, Oranges, Strawberries, Melons and Papaya
    Day 2 – Morning I just ate a bowl of boiled potatoes. In the afternoon I took boiled beans, cauliflower, carrots, mushrooms , cucumber and tomatoes.

    Though I haven’t measured my weight since starting the GM diet but I am already feeling light.

  341. Hi guys ,

    • day 4, no. You get veg soup – then mainly bananas and milk.
      gm diet is 7 days, i would do it 7, come off for at least 2 weeks, it that 2 week time before doing again eat healthy! Up to you though, folks have done it 2 or 3 times in a row.

  344. Hi am leo,
    I’d like to start GM diet. I need some guidance.

    3. At what time these could be have at each day till 7th day.(like breakfast, lunch & dinner or some other time please mention it).
    Kindly give me the full day timings for all the seven days.

    thank u

    • 1) no, never :)
      2) we give veg examples already, be sure to read each day of the plan above
      3) we give when to eat examples already, be sure to read each day of the plan above

  345. Your version seem to be very wrong, there are no milk or milk products except for the banana day.

    No cheese, no oil etc..

    I have been dieting for years on GM recipe,

  346. jack fruit is a big no, becos, of the high calorie and sugar content

  347. Am on my second day of GM diet,

    its real tuff, am keeping my temptation away from Sweet pongal & Sugarcane

    During my last dieting, i got severe cramps on my back becos of Gas formation on the veg.day

    any idea?

    • Tough to cut the mental cravings for food. Not to mention they can be physical addicting as well. Best I can say is hang in there and try not to go back to how you were eating before. Once I would let even the smallest of treats back in it always led to over eating them.

  348. I am 26yesr old 5.5 inches 68kg can u please let me knw how much weight I hav to lose according to my age and height . hav already started my gm diet from today…. its my first day today.

    • Hello….

      I am less concerned about a number in the long haul. My question to you would be are you eating nutrient dense foods? Are you larger framed? There are so many factors to weight and weight loss, maybe though you would want to be under 135. But if you are eating the right foods, your body will eventually shed the pounds (unless you have underlying health issues, thyroid issues, cortisol issues and so on.

  349. may i knw the vegetables we have 2 intake , can we take it wth chapathi???????????

  350. Am in my 4th day, :-),,,

    Had Banana and Milk :-)

    I have been following it except for 1 coffee split into 2 to 3 servings a day(milk coffee with sugar)

    Other than, this i have not touched anything :-). I have been repeating to myself saying,
    am burning my fat,
    my metabolism is increasing,
    am just enjoying,…
    This is awesome
    I can do it,,,,
    Just a self motivation

    Believe me it works and this time I have been more energetic than any other time of my dieting,
    Mental make up takes us to heights :-)

  352. Have slight muscle pull from yest.(5th day)

    I have not taken Potato throughout
    :-)
    But I was unable to stick only veg on vegee days
    I have been taking veg and fruits mixed on veg days too.

    What would be the implication?

  353. Unable to sleep at all from 5th day night onwards
    today is my 6th day

  354. Today am on 7th day,
    I was 78 Kgs before starting the diet

    I think am waiting to hogg the food :?. what should I do?

    I need the post GM diet instructions, so that, I need not put on weight

    anybody pls advice

  355. Today it’s my fourth day milk &banana diet should I add sugar into a milk please reply me

    • no, never, it has enough natural sugar. This will not only ruin the diet but hurt your health. If you need it sweeter blend some of you banana in it.

  356. What is the substitute for Beef. Is it ok if I take chicken instead ?

  357. Hi,

    I am starting my diet from today… I had a question can i take green tea ????

  358. Can we have knorr soup ?

  359. can we take sprouts on the vegetable days i.e. days 2 & 3 ?
    can we have sugar free with the milk on day 4 ?

    • sprouts for veg times is fine, no fake sweeteners in your milk, never, never, they actually cause weight issues – run from them. Blend some banana in it if you need

  360. can we have coconut water on the first three days ?

  361. Can I have indian yogurt(curd)?

  362. Replacing milk on day 4

    • try it, see what happens :)
      Look at the fat on Google in the milk, match it to what you are doing….

      • Hi,
        Please tell the timings like at what time i have to eat. i started the diet and am on my 2 nd day. i have 2 green teas and lime water from morning 7 – 1. i Dont eat any in morning to have a faster result. I do treadmill for 60 min. Only at 1.30 i have fruits/veg or soup as per the GM diet schedule. And evening again do 60 min treadmill. At 5.30 i have a green tea. After 6 i wont eat anything but water. Is this ok? Please i need your advice. My current weight is 64 kg and my height is 157 cm. Since my marriage is approaching in march i need to reduce atleast 7 kgs. Kindly reply asap.

  363. And one more question can this diet effect thyroid people bcoz thyroid people are difficult to loose weight

    • well, it’s the bad foods, additives and un-natural things that kill the thyroid, especially grains, gluten, etc… This diet is grain free.

  364. Well, the reviews are really so interesting,,I tried it 3 times before and stopped on day 2 n day 3 sometimes. Can u plz suggest me about the belly fat,,I look heafty only due to my belly.GM diet only works with exercise r also with out exercise. Plz do suggest me,I have to complete it this time

    • belly fat shows you are having other health issues, cortisol levels may be off, etc. You have to make a lifestyle change or it will not go away. This diet as some say helps them into that, not to mention they lose good weight to start.

  365. I lost just about 1.5-2 kgs. But I lost about 1.5 inches off my belly…so I’m super thrilled :D
    You just need good control….

  366. Hello Author,

    I have started my gm diet today and I am a vegetarian. Want to know whether I can eat salt in veggies and also other indian herbs? For Day 2 I am planning to eat veg sabji steamed and put all herbs but no oil? Is that ok? for soup also can I add other herbs other than salt and pepper? I will eating sabji for lunch and dinner and between will munch on cucumbers and carrots whenever hungry. Can I eat one avocado with little salt, onion, tomato and cilantro? Please let me know?

    • Salt is fine, so are dried herbs and spices. Anytime you will be replacing meat you need fat, so at least a teaspoon of oil. No avocado unless in your meal replacing meat, then you will not need the oil. try to stick to the plan…

  367. Well,, thanks for d reply n upto to now I’m well with my health issue.. Now what should I do for this belly fat, well n belly means not to much, it’s from my childhood bt increased with my increase in weight. Today is my 4 th day with little lazy in regular exercise n everything is fine n would like to follow for 2 more sessions . Please suggest for belly fat

  368. belly fat, read here, we discuss… then comment or join there and we can discuss easier. .http://gmdietforums.com/forums/gm-diet-after-day-7.6/

  369. I’ve started the gm diet plan today….the views encourage a lot! Hoping to go down till the end of the road.

  370. Hey hi,

    I am on the 5th Day of my GM diet.Till date i have lost 2 Kg.I am a little confused for todays plan.
    Today i m having brown rice,tomatoes and Cottage Cheese( Panneer).
    Am i going correct or do i need to change or substitute,
    Please reply asap.

    • not much cottage cheese, that is not how day 5 is setup for vegetarians, However you need a little fat with your meals since beef has it. So a 1/4 cup of cottage cheese is OK.

  371. I am on Day 2, I wanted to know whether I can have boiled channa with spices(onion,red chilly) mixed in it?

    • chickpeas? no, I guess you could though when it calls for meat, if you do it then make sure you add a teaspoon of oil to it as well.

  372. For everyone who’s been wondering if this works, let me just lay it out straight “It Does”, but once you’ve successfully completed Day 7 you’ve got to maintain that weight, it isn’t about shredding the flab and back at your old ways again. Its a lifestyle change. Please also note there should be a 4 day gap before you can start over with it. Trying to lose the weight through an unhealthy route can only tarnish it. Break it down into 6 small meals a day and exercising also plays an essential part to losing weight. For the best results try and follow the original GM Diet. Goodluck y’al!!!

  373. I started 2 days ago. Its DAY 3 for me:
    Breakfast: 1 bowl watermelon + water
    Lunch: 1 Bowl watermelon + cucmber slices(3-4)+1 banana( :( i was really hungry) + water
    Snacks: not hungry at all, decided to skip it
    Dinner: boiled veggies( cauliflower(1 small bowl)+1carrot+1bowl peas) + water

    55kgs today. Ill update by sunday *fingers crossed*

    • Good luck, finish strong…

      • Thanks!!!!
        Day 4:
        Started the day with 2 bananas. Hadto rush to work Will have a half a glass milk there.

        Plan for the day:

        Lunch: 2 bananas + 1 glass milk
        Snacks: I think ill be full after such a heavy lunch. Can skip it.
        Dinner: 2 bananas+ 1 glass milk

        I have noticed a reduction in my appetite n tummy :) *Yaaay*

  374. what about salt ….. can we take salt on day 1 and 2 ….

  375. Hello

    I have started on with this diet from today after reading each and every post of yours. Veg ( Indian ) version i shall follow.

    So Day1 : had 2 oranges for breakfast, 2 guavas around noon and 2 oranges again for lunch. Slight headache has started but i am trying to be strong :P
    will have some watermelon and guavas for evening and dinner. As on today my weight is 85kgs. Shall post the progress if any :P

  376. Can I sleep during the day author??

  377. Hi,

    can we eat Sprouts instead of vegetable or both???

  378. My kid sleeps a little late in the night so I usually sleep with her when she sleeps in the day.. so I just need to know whether taaking test will anyway affect my dieting process?

  379. i am already on a paleo diet and i am planning to check out Gm’s as well. i was wondering if i could replace soy, milk and brown rice since they are non-paleo. is there anything else i can replace it with?

    • Paleo? Then you eat meat right? Use meat. Some Paleo, myself included actually are more for nutrition and would allow Raw A2 dairy. You can do coconut milk. A sub for the rice? Tough…… try potato… Or if you are other root veg that have some starch.

  380. Please clarify me day 4, 5 & 6 Diet. I am living in india. Also tell me about milk, curd & egg when consumed

    • Just read the links in the sidebar above, very clear. You can substitute meat for eggs. I do not recommend curd right now. No milk unless it says to like Day 4.

  381. thank you! I believe that could help. it can be bummer sometimes since i have limited food choices but the freedom to eat meats and potatoes is pretty redeeming although i am prone to sticking to lean meat. I successfully completed day 1 without much difficulty but i did skipped my hardcore workout…i hope i can forgive myself for that :)

  382. Completed last Friday. Feeling good now. lost 3.5kg. Ready for next one.

  383. I am 19 years old with height of 5’0 feet, having weight 49kgs. Can I use this diet?

  384. Hii I’m hypothyroid can I follow this diet…I really want to loose my weight…….

    • We cannot offer medical advice. However as a hypothyroid, you really need to do some research and CUT all grains! This diet may be really helpful to start you into a healthier grain free lifestyle.

  385. Hi Guys. Did the GM Diet from 17 – 23 Feb & dropped 4 kilos.
    Took advice from the admin (you rock buddy), read up the comments on the forum, did some research & understood the science behind it.
    Dropped another Kilo from 24 Feb – 2 Mar by weight training and sensible eating.

    Started the GM again today (03 Mar). Hope to drop 6 kilos this time.

    Fingers crossed

  386. thank you so much Tatz Data .

  387. Hey,

    I use isolate whey protein after my work out. Is it okay to use it during this diet?
    Will this diet affect my workout schedule?

    Regards,

    Saurabh

  388. I have started to follow it twice or thrice but with not goin beyond day 3. I cannot stick to any diet i decide this time i am determined as promised my hubby to weigh 4-5 kg lesser on 31st march….I will keep u guys posted with my weight loss currently am 76.4 kg

    Tomorrow day 1

  389. Checked after Day 3.
    Down 2.1 kilo. Bit disappointed. Had hoped for more since my target this week is 5 kilos.

    Doing cardio in the morning (45 – 50 mins).
    Cardio in the evening (25 mins) & about 50 mins of weight training in the evening (6 day split).
    Only additional thing on my menu is a glass of sattu (roasted gram flour) as my pre workout drink.

    Any advice @ admin?

    • you workout a ton. Have you studied the effects of working out that long on the body as opposed to doing HIT training type working out. Not criticizing by all means, it’s good you workout, but yes that drink can 100% ruin this NO grain diet. Please, remember whole natural foods and balanced meals are the way to go.

      • Ok. Thanks. Will cut out the roasted gram drink right now. Had it on day 2 & day 3, so hope that it did not affect me much. Fingers crossed.

        I am also going to try HIIT training from today. Looking for some program to replace my normal cardio with HIIT. Any advice on that?

        Weight training will continue.

        Have overall dropped 6.2 kilos since 17 Feb so am feeling a bit lighter with more definition of muscle mass.

  390. Day 1 almost completed by 6:00 pm

    I have had 2 apples, 3 oranges, some water melon, 8 glasses water, 2 glasses Jasmine green tea w/o sugar,
    2 small bouls of soup( made of onion, bell peper, 2 mushrooms, cabbage)..

    Planing to have an apple and 1 more bowl of wonder soup. My morning soups were little thick i will add water to this one to keep it more filling.

    I felt headache and severe hunger pangs from 2 pm to 4 pm but am very happy i overcame dm by diverting my mind.

    I am feeling completly full right now and planning all for tomorrow.

    Some queries to admin for tomorrow

    5) 3 pm – 2 glasses green tea
    6) 4 pm carrot

    I have boiled bottle gourd kept aside for dinner….

    I feel tomorrow i have lots of options

  395. Day 5 today on my second time. Have dropped about 3 kilos this time.
    Much more weakness, maybe due to the twice a day cardio & 6 day split, weight training in the evening.

    Wonder Soup is a big help man.
    Also, black coffee, after the workout.

  396. Hi GM guys,
    I am very happy after seeing the reviews. I am 73.5kg now. I want lose 23 kg in next 5 months. I am starting my plan tomo. I will update my status after every 7th day.

  397. Starting GM diet from tmrw … Very excited..
    Weight 55 kgs.. Wanna loose 5-6 kgs
    Fingerscrossed

  398. Hi,
    I’ve started it since yesterday. Lets see how it goes. I had cantaloupes, apples & pomegranate all day…
    let’s see how day 2 turns out…
    ciao!

  399. Update Guys.
    Did GM from 17 Feb to 23 Feb. Dropped 4 kilos.
    24 Feb to 2 Mar. Weight Training & Cardio. Dropped 1 kilo.
    3 Mar to 9 Mar. GM. Dropped 3 kilos (cardio & weight training continued).
    Total 8. 4 kilos down including today.

    Wight & cardio going strong.
    Muscle fatigue is being countered by black coffee.
    Hope the trend continues for at least a few weeks more.
    Then will switch to normal, health eating plan

    • Good job :)
      I can assure you though, your muscle fatigue has nothing to do with lack of coffee. 99% of Coffee is not healthy.

      • Okay. My trainer buddy told me that caffeine is one of the key ingredients in the supplements. Since I don’t like taking supplements, I switched to coffee. Will stop then

    DAY3: ONGOING… morning watermelon, lunch boiled veggies like DAY2 and now having fruits (grapes and pomo..) ..plan to have boiled cabbage and apple and some carrots for today in later part.

    My dear Author, could you help me resolving the above query?
    Could you suggest me a way to lose weight in similar manner?

    I particularly wanna lose my tummy!!! My problem is, when ever i eat, my tummy grows big. Its not just the bottom belly, i have the top belly too. I wanna make my tummy flat.

    • Hello, tummy weight can be an indicator of possible health concerns like cortisol problems and issues with the thyroid. However! Typically it is the refined flours, sugar and processed foods that do it. If you want to lose it. Go natural! Cut sugars, eat fruit, veg, proteins, good fats, etc.

    • 1) you can lose fat and gain muscle. 2) Could be water weight. 3) you need to look at the 7 day picture 4) You cannot weigh yourself after eating a meal, only when you wake up after going to the bathroom first thing in the morning. Never weigh yourself like that.

    • yes when replacing meat you can have the paneer and veg. NO chapati, no bread, it is a huge weight gainer, empty carbs, terrible for you.

  462. hi
    I am ashwin, i want to start gm diet, but i have great concerns regarding.

    1. does it lead to hair loss as we are restricting the essential vitamins requirement per day
    2. i have heard that its not healthy to lose more than 1kg per week and 4kgs per month, by loosing more weight in less time, can we expect any health issues or its fine.
    3. how to maintain the weight after seven days diet and what should be our diet from 8 th day
    4. how often can we repeat the diet plan without any health issues and permanent weight loss

    • 1) how do you figure it takes away vitamins. it is full of fresh foods. Most people eat processed junk food, sugar and wheat all day, there are no vitamins there. This diet if followed properly is full of vitamins.
      2) It will be fine, where did you read that. Weight loss will vary per person, you are not harming yourself.
      3) Loaded question, start by cutting flour/wheat, sugar and processed foods. Eat balanced meals, each meal should have protein and some good fat.
      4) You should not do this diet more than once every 2 weeks to once every month.
      Hope that helps :)

      • hi
        thanks for your information, can we do gm diet now as its summer , does it lead to dehydration

        • No it will not dehydrate you, you are drinking water and eating veg which naturally has fluid, if anything it is far better than what most were doing before.

      • hi
        does gm diet effect our metabolism rate during diet and in future….thanx

        • No, it will help spur it on, however go back to how you were eating after it and you will mess up what the diet helped with.

  463. hi,
    this is ashwin, thanks for your valuable information and i have another concern
    1 ) From past 2 months i have been following a healthy diet as honey lemon water in the mrng, 2 egg yolks & wheat flakes in breakfast ,cup of green tea 1 hour after breakfast and lunch, glass of milk and apple per day …means in small portions i have been eating for three to four hours gap to maintain metabolism rate skipping the whole diet all of sudden does it effect. or its fine
    2) can i have two cups green tea during gm diet and honey lemon water in the mrng or i can start them from 8 th day
    3) can i do cardio exercise mrng 1 hour and evng 1 hour during gm diet
    3) i want to start gm diet from monday ………hope for the best….!!!

    • 1) Wheat flakes are so bad for you.
      2) Honey in water first thing in the morning is not good for you. Pure carbs, and no protein to balance it. You are drinking sugar basically. Lemon water though is great.
      3) HIT or burst training is the best way to kick on your metabolism.
      4) Green tea is OK, no sweetener though.

      Keep going :)

  464. Hi!!
    I m on 6th day!!
    Can i continue with the diet plan after 7th day or i should stop??
    Is this plan for one week in a month?? Or we can continue even after one week?

    • Stop for 2 weeks at least, go gluten and sugar free during that time and eat balanced meals.
      You may be shocked at how well you will continue to do.

  465. Day 5 was pretty normal
    Started with a weight of 68 3 KG

    Had Beef – strips marinated in indian spices- but very less in quantity – they are pretty heavy – I have mixed the tomatos with the beef itself while cooking
    Water intake is less today I feel, but yes the beef makes you thirsty
    afternoon – stake with simple masala
    - I spoiled the evening – as I had gone out and had no choice, but ate one 6″ subway with beef steak, and tomato.. no sauce I have used.. but yes feeling very guilty about the bread I have taken… :(
    weight in the night is back to 69.8 – guess the beef is not doing so good – I may have to look into alternatives

    • Beef is not your issue. BREAD is a killer, well actually beef from Subway is a killer though. NEVER weigh yourself at night, only in the morning, when you wake after going to the bathroom. That night time weight is worthless, means nothing.

  466. hi

    i follow the gm diet and i lose only 2kg.

  467. hi
    Today is my 2 nd day of gm diet ,its fine till today. can i have sprouts and corn soup today. can i have salad containing sweet corn, onion tomorrow ,is it fine.

    • a few sprouts OK, no, an extra no on corn soup. the salad can have less that a 1/4 cup of corn, beware of eating too much corn. onion is ok…

  468. Today is my 5th day of GM diet. i only lost 2kgs.
    Is it ok.

    • Sure, keep in mind weight loss varies, plus you may be losing more inches than anything.Keep in mind this diet should help you change your eating mindset towards real healthy food.

  469. honey intake with water and lemon is ok in GM diet.
    on 5th day i can use eggs 6
    Please suggest me

    • No it is NOT OK to drink honey water, there is nothing healthy about drinking sugar water in the morning. Yes eggs are fine

  470. hi
    i have completed 3 days of gm diet ,its been going fine. can i have 1 piece of chicken breast or 1 piece of fish on day 5 along with brown rice which is cooked in normal way and can i have other vegetables on day 5 along with tomatoes or only tomatoes.

    • Reading the plan, you can have those meats but NO rice.

      • hi
        1) In indian version of gm diet u have given on 5 th day u can have brown rice.
        2) u have mentioned that brown rice should be accompanied with tomatoes and cucumber , how many tomatoes and cucumber can we have on that day….!!

  471. hi
    can i have egg whites on day 5 in breakfast.

    • Well why not the whole egg, the healthy part is the yolk not the white.

      • whole really from past one year i have been eating only egg whites 2 in breakfast .surprised with your reply. how many whole eggs we can have one or two in the mrng…!!!

        • Explain then what’s healthy in an egg white? It’s only protein, from real pastured free range chickens the yolk can be amazing. Also keep in mind tons of folks are allergic to eggs, usually it’s the egg white that causes it. The egg is a whole food, take away the yolk and it is not. Don’t be duped by this Americanized fat free junk that’s making people sick. Even Dr. OZ has had to change his views on it. Real whole foods are the way to go.

  472. can i eat boild egg or amlet every day

  473. I am starting the GM diet today. I had attained a plateau on weight loss following a low-carb diet. Will this diet still help me in losing more weight?
    Anything to kick start the weight loss process again?

    • Unfortunately you need time to come out of that low carb state. Basically what you have done to yourself is now your body will react poorly to anything over that low carb number you were on causing easy weight gain. Try this and get on a normal eating plan after of whole real foods, no sugar, etc.

      • My daily diet used to consist of the following:
        Morning – Tea/Coffee
        Breakfast – Fruits
        Mid mornig – Salad
        Lunch – Vegetables/Chicken/Fish etc
        Evening – Biscuits/Tea etc
        Dinner – Chapati/Rice/Vegetables/Chicken etc.

        Will GM diet work for me? I do not want to gain weight following the GM diet. Please advice.

        • Hello. The diet tends to work for most, but I could never say this or any diet will work for everyone, underlying health issues can make it tough to lose weight for example. At first glance you diet looks fairly basic. Keep in mind it is not a lifestyle change, just a quick weight loss tool.

          Issue 1: No protein until lunch, not good. each meal should have it. Up until lunch you eat only carbs with no protein or fat. You need good fat with each meal and protein. If someone has weight issues, I always say go gluten free. Bread, chapati, whatever is so bad. Focus on nutrient dense foods.

  474. on day 3th can i have fruits vegetable n soya with spicies

  475. today is my 4th day and i take in BF 2 banana and one glass milk and for lunch 2 banana and dinner the sam 2 banana and one glass milk. is it okay.
    but bow 5th, 6th and 7th day is not clear for me please tell me in details of that days and i m verg but i take egg so please help me

  476. hi
    Thanks for gm diet successfully completed 5 days feeling much more lighter than past……!!!
    1) i am on day 6 of gm diet, i want to use chicken instead of beef ,in polynesian chicken recipe you have given 6 chicken thighs , at what time can we have all at once or 2 pieces per meal .
    2) how to make fruit cocktail (they hasn’t mentioned in detail in chicken recipe)
    Thanks & Regards,
    Ashwin.

    • good news on feeling lighter.
      1) 2 pieces per meat serving will work.
      2) you don’t have to cook the fruit, just the juice, mix it with chicken and add whatever spices you like, Bake until done :)

    please tell me what should i do.

    • Hello…

      2 extra bananas are not a killer so to speak. hang in there. I know this may sound stupid, the number is not everything in one sense yet. Finish the diet and let’s see what happens then and discuss. :)

  478. This diet seems working for many. Want to try it at the earliest.

  479. Hi,

    I am on the last day of the diet. And had lost 2.5 kgs till day 3. Since then my weight is stuck. Don’t know where did I go wrong?

    Can you help.

  480. Kevin today is my last day and in the morning my weight 59 :( it is not reducing
    6th day i take in BF one boiled whole egg and lunch boiled rice and lentil and night small amount of boiled rice and paneer.
    7th day i mean today boiled rice and paneer.

    than where is the problem please advise me

    • HUH, it really seems like you are eating too little food. Not good actually. Less is not better on this diet at all.

  481. hi,
    Thanks a lot for this wonderful gm diet plan successfully completed 1 week, i have been getting compliments from my frnds. lot of change in you. thank u once again for the diet plan.
    1) i have some concerns that the weight which i have lost is it water weight
    2) can i have 2 rotis daily at dinner without oil, wat is the problem in it. in india most of the people who start diet there first preference would be wheat roti and no it white rice, i have wondered with ur replay ,no to wheat.
    3) can we have dal

    • i haven’t got answer from u…

      • Be patient please, I am on a different time zone :)

        No, it’s not water weight.
        Wheat is terrible for you, Google it, study it, empty calories, typically genetically modified and full of chemicals. Processed incorrectly, the list goes on. Sorry, not to mention most folks have gluten issues.
        Dal is fine to replace meat. make sure it has some good oil/fat

        • oh! sorry i thought u haven’t noticed it. thanks for your valuable information….

        • hi
          can i have white rice daily at lunch… quantity ?, previously i used to eat 2 phulka at nyt ,as u said wheat is terrible…what can i have at nyt … to replace wheat…!

          • no, you cannot have white rice when you like. when it says you can, yes. phulka is pure junk to the body, especially right before bed, basically when you eat right before bed a snack like that you are doing it to gain weight. White rice for dinner, but you cannot eat right before bed, people that try and gain weight, their best tip on how to gain weight is to eat right before bed.

  482. Hi,
    I have already taken the GM diet a month back, I was 76 kg before diet and lost 3 kg (73) when finish my diet and now my weight is 74. I guess I need to concentrate more on maintaining.

    Again I have started the diet today with 74 kg. Hope let me lose more weight this time.

    I have a question, Can I have juices like Butter fruit, Mango, or watermelon on day 1 with less sugar? instead to take the fruits all time. Please suggest.

  483. i have lost only 1 kg from 7day diet plan
    why?

    • based on what you told me, you did not follow the plan well, you barely ate any food. less is not better, you need food!

  484. i m trying one more time from this friday wish me good luck
    and please clear one thing on 4th day how many banana and milk is required

    • 4 – Sorry, but if you don’t know the answer it means you have not read our clearly laid out day 4 page and are reading other fake plans who offer you ZERO help.

  485. Hi,
    I wanna start GM diet. But before starting I want to clarify few things:

    1. I am a thyroid patient so is this plan going to work for me or is applicable on normal people only?
    2. meal should be taken one time or 3 times a day..its not mentioned anywhere.
    3. instead of curd what can be taken as i am allergic to curd..can it i substitute curd with egg whites..if yes then how many eggs is the limit?

    • 1) This diet is gluten free, to us vital someone with thyroid issues must be on (meaning be gluten free).
      2) yes it is, please read each page, we break down each meal. you never eat once a day.
      3) eggs are fine but you need the yolk. Never leave it out, it;s the only nutritious part.

  486. Hi,

    thanks for the clarifications…one more thing i wanna ask that my daughter who is 9 yrs old is slight obese and doctor strictly advised us to reduce her weight by at least 5-6 kgs..cause she is suffering with mild “Acanthosis Nigrican” (because of insulin resistance)…so its compulsory for her to shed few pounds…so can i put her on GM diet…is it safe for her…if yes then at what degree…can u suggest me some modified version of plan for kids..i know she is at her growing age so this exact diet plan is not safe for kids but see if u can suggest me something for her.

    • You may need to lower her carbs. Low carb diets, not great for some, but for her may be nice. Not every long term diet plan is right for everyone. There are variables and the fact tahtshe is insulin resistant is one of those big variables. Never let her have carbs without a protein, her meals have to be balanced. That means a protein, some starchy veg, good healthy fats/oils, etc. So that really means no snacks. Also infections can cause insulin resistance like gut issues. This diet may help, ask her doc though. I’m not sure though what you mean not kid safe? What’s not safe for kids are processed foods,sugar. Whole real foods!!!! Also, you may want to consider gluten free.

  487. in 4th day i read that 6 to 8 bananas and 3 glass of milk but i just confirming from you it is rite or wrong

  488. Hey guys I have successfully completed 4days of the diet!
    Lost 3kgs till day 3..
    I have some doubts for day5
    If m having can I still have brown rice?
    It would be really helpful if someone could tell me a complete plan for the remaining days….
    The non Indian version isn’t very helpful for the days after day 4.

  489. thefitindian.com/the-fastest-indian-vegetarian-diet-to-lose-weight/#comment-9708

    • Once again, a s tripped down quick version. I only help with what’s here, if you are following both you are making a big mistake. There is nothing healthy about 8 bananas. Not snarking on what they have, it’s theirs, and good luck to them truly, I just only help with what’s here. We have an entire site dedicated to this diet, not a page.

  490. Oops…sorry
    I meant can I eat chicken n brown rice both…
    or i have to choose either one?

    • choose either, if we say eat meat, eat chicken, if a day says meat and rice go for it. But off the top of my head I don;t think a day does.

  491. Hi Kevin,

    From tomorrow me and my husband are going to start our GM diet program. I hv one query I bought musk melon, apples, pine apple, papaya and pomegranate…as u said no banana on first day so no banana. But are you trying to say no mango also. Secondly can you briefly explain me second day veg diet plan from morning to night…how can i start my day???…raw veg salad or moong dal sprout…steamed carrot, beans, corn, cabbage, spinach kinda mix veg platter ok for lunch..can we take tomato and carrot soup in the evening?…what should i take in the night..pls suggest me some recipe link here would be great help. pls help me make it simpler and easier :)

    • Have FUN!!! Always nice having a partner in it. Mango is fine. You need the potato, and better to do the butter, olive oil or ghee on it to me. The rest sounds OK. Read each day carefully, we layout each meal. Recipes can be tough on simple food days. So add salt, pepper, curry, spices, herbs, whatever to add flavor. Example add some roasted garlic. I love very spicy peppers on everything!

  492. Hi, Pls let me know if we can take our morning tea and vitamins and calcium supplements?…Basically our day starts with tea…i take take green tea and my husband take normal tea. pls suggest.

  493. Hi author
    wanna ask you for brown rice. Its shoul be cooked or raw?

  494. Thanks .vl start from 2omoro ..hope for the best. .

  495. ok than please tell me the meal plan for day 4.

  496. 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….

  499. Hi guys,

  500. Hi,
    I have done GM diet two weeks back.On second day of GM diet my periods started,I still continued.I could only lose 1.5kg and which I gained back within next week.Please guide,is it because of periods?

    • never do this diet 2 weeks back to back, Yes a cycle can affect things for sure. Best after this plan to stay gluten free and on balanced meals.

  501. I did this diet only for one week and my diet is gluten free after that.Periods could have caused me not to reduce weight.Thanks for your reply.I will try it next month again.

  502. can v take tea or coffee….without sugar

  503. Hi Everyone,

    I’m Suresh, living in Chennai. Currently i’m working in Night shift job.
    Their schedules are completely different from my routine life, please confirm how i need to maintain my diet.

    Thank you in advance.

    • Hello :)
      Night shifts are tough, been there. Circadian rhythms have lots to do with gaining weight. But you have to do your best. To maintain, beware of snacking too much. Stop eating processed foods and sugar. Eat nutrient dense foods! You have to make a lifestyle change or else.

  504. can i take tomato soup all seven days

  505. I dont eat beef. so can i eat chicken and fish on day 5 and 6. if yes what type should i eat. and is beer allowed during the 7 day plan?

    • If you drink beer often, you basically asking for weight gain. Sorry, no beer. Yes, fish, just no tuna. Chicken up to you, have some dark meat for sure…

      • so basically i can eat chicken and fish. and which type of chicken should i eat. i mean roast chicken fried chicken boiled chicken or kababs. ?
