GM Diet Vegetarian

The GM diet is a seven-day plan that involves a sequential consumption of fruits, vegetables, starch and meat. While it has grown popular as a diet fad, this diet at the same time has benefited different types of health buffs and diet enthusiasts and not to mention hardcore vegetarians and vegans.

Vegetarian Version Of the GM Diet

The typical GM Diet requires you to eat meat as part of the diet plan. Obviously this is not an option for strict vegetarians and vegans. This is why you have a slightly modified version, one that is completely vegetarian version of the same GM Diet.

The vegetarian version of GM Diet plan is used by vegetarians and vegans not only as a form of weight loss but as a maintenance method to keep the body slim and proportional. It is also great way to practice eating vegetables and limited amounts of meat until such time that the person on the diet finally gets rid of all meat and eggs in his or her system.

GM Diet Vegetarian Preparation

To prepare for the vegetarian GM diet plan it is important not to consume alcohol a few days before and during the diet schedule. This is because alcohol increases the body’s uric acid content which in turn leads to water retention and blocks the natural detoxifying processes from taking place.

Drinking up to 10 glasses of water is recommended for GM diet practitioners. Since they will not be consuming as much carbohydrates as they normally do, water would serve as their main source of energy throughout the day. Water also speeds up metabolic processes in the body and through this the unwanted pounds can be eliminated naturally.

To those who have already been through this diet plan, it is advised to take a 2-3 day break away before resuming the method. This is to allow the body to fully adjust to its new nutritional intake system and not get overwhelmed with the sudden change of events.

Schedule for GM Diet Vegetarian

Similar to the typical GM Diet, the vegetarian version of GM diet also requires you to follow a seven-day schedule

  • Day 1. Only fruits. Just like in the regular GM diet, only fruits are allowed to be consumed on the first day. All fruits can be consumed in generous quantities except for bananas, as they are high in carbohydrates and potassium. Water intake should also be observed at 10-12 glasses during the whole day.
  • Day 2. The second day involves potato and vegetables. A cup of baked potato would serve as the body’s main energy source for the day, and then it can be followed up with vegetable dishes during lunch and dinner. Vegetable soup is highly powerful during this day, as it provides all the energy the body would need.
  • Day 3. Fruit and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables may be served the whole day, from breakfast to dinner, including midday snacks. Fruit juice can also be taken aside from water, although no bananas or potatoes are allowed.
  • Day 4. Bananas and milk. Banana and milk combos may be consumed all day, with vegetable soup servings during lunch and dinner. Banana and milk may be taken in the form of shakes, during breakfast and midday snacks.
  • 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.

By the end of Day 7, you should be feeling much lighter and look more glowing. This is because the detoxification effects have already taken place and the body has already shed off at least 2-3 kg or about 10 lbs.

  1. can i substitute chicken instead of beef?? or on the 4rth day am i not allowed to any any friut like water melon or cantaloupe only banana??

    • Hi, today is my 5th day of diet and I have lost 2 kgs. though I m very happy but was targeting for total 5 kgs. I am following the diet very strictly. but what happens when I cook something for family I take a bite or two to taste as it satisfies my inner desire to eat normal food. I know it is not ok but wanted to check will affect me adversely?
      Also on 5th day when we have to eat 1 bowl of rice , I bowl means raw or cooked rice?

      • Hey, today is my first day of the GM diet. I’m 17 basically and i wish to lose around 3-4kgs! it took me a lot of time to gain the will power of doing this and i finally completed the fruit day! I just had 1 banana and 5 almonds and also I did a bit of exercise! Is it bad or manageable? Please reply asap! Can i continue ?

  2. Yes you can use chicken instead of beef.

    Nope – 4t day is purely Banana & Milk

    • sam u r giving answer to so may persons plese reply me
      can i take tea with this plan
      can i use salt with veg.

      • You can use salt, but as less as possible.

        • Hi Deep Sea,
          I am following GM diet, i m on my 4th day today (banana n milk day). As mentioned in the diet plan i am not feeling hungry like i was feeling for last three days. But when ppl around me eat delicious food (Pakoda’s samosa etc) i feel very tempted. BUt i did not give up my diet
          My query here is –
          what is it after 7days.????
          I have heard ppl telling that “you will loose weight for sure in GM diet but you will gain back the same once you start eating”
          so i m really worried…..
          I know if ppl start hogging everything which they did not eat during this diet later then they will surely gain weight (than before)
          We can continue this diet plan for ever right..
          so please suggest me a vegi diet plan after GM diet to keep up this fitness….

  3. I have allergy to bananas. Is there any substitute.
    In place of milk, can we have curd.
    For milk, should it be toned or double toned.

  4. This is great thank you for taking the time to figure out a vegetarian version of the GM diet. So many modern diets are off limit to vegetarians, so it is great to find one that is not.

  5. Hi I was just wondering, since beef in this diet is for protein, can it be substituted for Egg whites or the non fried soya burger patties available in many supermarkets around the world? I feel a bit guilty since I had 4-5 quarter pounders of such patties yesterday. Is wonder soup an important element of the diet? And does one just shed water weight in this diet like some websites have published or is it something that one can maintain by eating healthy consistently?

    • The wonder soup is just to break the monotony of fruits or vegetables or whatever at the end of the day.
      GM diet is not just a water-shedded-weight loss. There is no mention of restricting the water intake on any day. How can one lose only water if we are consuming at least 10-14 glasses of water every day, added with the unlimited quantity of soup and the water contained in the melons, fruits and vegetables? It basically acts on the principle of ‘negative calorie foods’ where you are consuming certain foods that demand more calories to burn themselves than what they provide themselves. High-fiber food stuffs you but doesn’t provide the required calories, instead demands more calories to burn themselves, which is derived from the stored energy-deposits.

  6. Hi, thanks for doing this great job of putting together all the information about GM diet.

    If possible please try to do the vegetarian break down for every meal of the day ( Like for breakfast, lunch and dinner ).

  7. Hi There,

    I have been following this plan from past 3 weeks. I have some questions. Please reply.

    1. How many times we can follow this program?
    2. What should be the gap in between?
    3. I have not reduced much weight whic was 97 kg in the begining and now is 94 kg, but my waist size has reduced a lot which was 42″ in the start and now is 37″, also I have started getting compliments now that I am looking slimmer. Please tell me why my wieght is not reducing less?
    4. Do I need to have Banana and milk together or can they be taken differently?
    5. Do brown rice or cottage cheese provide same amount of protien as of Beef?

    • Hi Kanwaljit great u r able to follow for 3 weeks m tryn to start this diet plan tmrw onwards tried 3 times before could not do it can v hav tea n small amount of sprouts. N yes i had doule chin i exrcised a bit with neck n stopped havn pillow.

    • 1. You are supposed to give atleast a break of 2 weeks between two diets.
      2. In between have food that contains more fat and calories. If you are an India, you can have dry phulka or roti. Olive oil can be used but in very less quantity.
      3. The minimum weight loss is 5 kgs and maximum weight loss is 8kgs. So, you got to be happy because you have followed diet properly and you can always repeat GM diet after giving a healthy gap between 2 diets.
      4. I am right now on GM Diet and on 3rd day. Tomorrow is a day of Banana and milk. Unfortunately, I don’t like both. There is a south Indian dish called ‘Rasayana’ which is prepared by mixing milk, banana and sugar. it’s delicious. But in place of sugar, one can add sugar free tablets and have it. I am sure you will love it!
      5. As I am a vegetarian, I don’t really have a clue about beef.

      Cheers!

  8. P.S. Also I have a double chin, which is not reducing, can you please provide an anwer how to reduce or remove it?

    • Richa,

      Probably you are not following the diet properly. Eat what you are supposed to eat. Strictly avoid Restaurant food. If you don’t follow diet properly, you will end up gaining more weight than you were before. So, just take care because all these days of efforts should not go vain.
      Use salt as less as possible.

    • Hello Prerna, here it is!

      No crash dieting, only proper dieting
      This is an extract of ‘weight loss diet’ circulated by many companies and banks among its employees in USA & India. This has proved to be the very effective program for weight loss. Hope this will be of much use to all those who are conscious of their weight and health.

      WEIGHT LOSS DIET for 7 days (Tested by corporates)
      This program was developed in conjunction with the grant from the US Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration. It was field tested at the Johns Hopkins Research Center and was approved for distribution by the Board of Directors of General Motors Corporation at a general meeting on August 15, 1995.
      This Program is designed for a target weight loss of 5 – 6 Kgs per week. It will also improve your attitude and emotions because of its systematic cleansing effects. The effectiveness of this seven day plan is that the foods eaten burn more calories than they give to the body in caloric value. This plan can be used as often as you like to without any fear of complications. It is designed to flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being. After seven days you will begin to fell lighter by at least 10 pounds. You will have an abundance of energy and improved disposition. During the first seven days you must drink 10 glasses of water each day.

      Day One: All fruits except bananas. Your first day consist of all fruits you want. It is suggested you consume lots of melons the first day especially watermelon and cantaloupe.

      Day Two: All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the raw and cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the amount or type. Avoid oil and coconut while cooking vegetables. Have large boiled potato for breakfast.
      Day Three: Any mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity, no bananas yet and no potatoes today.
      Day Four: Banana and Milk. Today you will eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. You can also have 1 bowl of Vegetable soup.
      Day Five: Today is feast day. You will eat 1 cup of rice. You also have to eat six whole tomatoes and drink 12 glasses of water today to cleanse your system of the excess uric acid you will be producing.
      Day Six: Today is another all vegetables day. You must eat 1 cup of rice today and eat all the vegetables you want, cooked or uncooked, in your hearts content.
      Day Seven: Today your food intake will consist of 1 cup of rice, fruit juice and the vegetables you care to consume. Tomorrow morning you will be five to eight Kgs. Lighter than 1 week ago. If you desire further weight loss repeat the program again. Repeat the program as often as you like. However, it is suggested that you rest for three days before every repetition.
      You have your system under control now and it will thank you for all the purging and cleansing you just gave it. Even more than a diet program it is good to follow this diet once in a while to clean your digestive system and remove toxic substances that have accumulated in the system.
      ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

      The most important element of the program is the 10 tall glasses of water a day. You can also flavor the water with some lemon to make the drink easier. While on the program take only black coffee and never more than one teaspoon of oil. Preferably do not use oil because of the high calorific content. No fruit juices before day seven.
      Day One:
      You are preparing your system for the upcoming program. Your only source of nutrition is fresh fruits. Fruits are nature’s perfect food. They provide everything you can possibly want to sustain life except total balance and variety.
      Day Two:
      Starts with a fix of complex carbohydrates in the form of a boiled potato. This is taken in the form of a boiled potato and taken in the morning to provide energy and balance. The rest of the day too consists of vegetables, which are virtually calorie free and provide essential nutrients and fiber.
      Day Three:
      Eliminates the potato because you get your carbohydrates from fruits. Your system is now prepared to start burning excess pounds. You will have cravings, which should start to diminish by day four.
      Day Four:
      Bananas and milk. You are in for a surprise. You probably will not be able to eat all the bananas allowed. But they are there for the potassium you have lost and sodium you may have missed the last three days. You will notice a definite loss of desire for sweets and you will be surprised at how easy this day will go.
      Day Five:
      Rice and tomatoes. The rice is for the carbohydrates and the tomatoes are for the digestion and fiber. Lots and lots of water purify you system. You should notice colorless urine today. Do not feel you have to eat one-cup rice, you may eat less. But you may eat six tomatoes.
      Day Six:
      It is similar to five. Vitamins and fiber from the vegetables and carbohydrates from the rice. 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:
      You may celebrate with champagne. You may also have white wine instead of champagne, but in all practical programs, and in all surveys done to measure the success of the program, General Motors employees have always preferred champagne to white wine.
      More than one cup of coffee with milk is especially forbidden. Milk and oil and empty calories to your diet. Coffee lovers can console themselves with black coffee. However, after the first week, it will help your digestion and set your stomach. The key thing to remember is that if you are hungry at any time, then you are not following the diet correctly. Almost all people give up the diet when they are hungry. If it is a vegetable day, eat as much vegetables that you are never hungry. If it is a fruits day, eat so much fruits that you are never hungry. You may be bored of eating vegetables all day, but you should not be hungry. You take any amount of wonder soup on any day.

    • Dear Asmi,

      1. You are supposed to give atleast a break of 2 weeks between two diets.
      2. In between have food that contains more fat and calories. If you are an India, you can have dry phulka or roti. Olive oil can be used but in very less quantity.
      3. I am right now on GM Diet and on 3rd day. Tomorrow is a day of Banana and milk. Unfortunately, I don’t like both. There is a south Indian dish called ‘Rasayana’ which is prepared by mixing milk, banana and sugar. it’s delicious. But in place of sugar, one can add sugar free tablets and have it. I am sure you will love it!
      4. You can take salt, but very very little.

  54. Hi.
    GM diet rocks. I am 40+ and I lost 6kg and almost one inch in a week time without any workout. I continued it to 5weeks and lost 17kg and 4inches. I was 130kg with 44″ waist and now I am 40″. Since lot to do to reach my goal of 36″ & 90KG.

    Watermelons and cantaloupe are best fruits to shred weight n fat as they help you for water retention. I always priortize them during fruity days. If you want other fruits, combine them with oranges, apples & grapefruits. (Avoid grapes, peaches, pineapple & mangoes as they contain rich amount of sugar)

    Day 4 is very important as I have noticed that most of the persons tries to escape bananas and milk. 6 – 8 bananas and almost one liter of milk is required this perticular day. It cover the loss of potassium and the sodium which you missed during 3days, so don’t avoid it. You can consume them as combo (banana shake) or otherwise too. Soup also plays an important role. Drink as many time as you can and without any limit.

    Eat vegetables raw or cooked (without oil). In case you really want, use one tea spoon of Olive oil. Again I would say, try to avoid usage of oil during entire period you are following this plan.

    Alongwith the diet I took organic green tea which helped me to lose weight and give me refreshing feeling throughout day. But remember, no sugar and no milk.

    For fresh mind and body, it is always good to eat vegetables, but, for people who can eat meat will lose faster as red meat take time to digest therefore you will not feeling hungry soon. If replace Beaf with Mutton (lean meat). Chicken will not give you optimum results.

    You can do it as many times as you can but between next cycle keep of gap of 2 – 3days. During gap days I love to eat grilled chicken or mutton kababs with brown bread.

    Hats off to this diet.
    Please share your experiences with other in this forum.

  75. Hey All,

    Contemplating on doing this GM Diet soon…..Read all the comments and this diet does seem impressive, I have tried this GM diet long back and reduced 2 kgs after 7 days (not a big drop, still encouraging), but after that my food craving increased many fold and I gained more that what I lost in no time…hence skeptical about doing it again all these while…but now, I am driven to the point of undertaking this diet again, as my weight loss venture is giving no results in the last 2 months and I feel really bad about it!!!

    I have just one question? Alongside this diet, can I undertake physical activity like treadmill walk for 30-45 mins during the 7 days ?? is it a good idea??? GM dieting and walking parallel – will it tire me out ?? would I be putting lots of stress on my body trying to do both at the same time? experts, pls advice…if walk is not recommended, will just stick to the diet alone…Please respond early, as I am planning for this diet early in a week or two’s time.

  76. Can I eat tomatoes on day 2???

  77. hi, frnds.this is my 5 th day,i am actually taking not more than 6glasses of water on the all days and taken 2-3 piecesof tapiocka on day 3,is it ok? or it makes any probs…am doing sme exercises too with this(30 mins)

  78. My wife is on this plan. Today is day two. Please guide whether on any day of the plan, any intake of salt is allowed? Whether tea with milk without sugar can be taken on any day in less quantity once/twice? Please reply early.

    Thanks

  81. 1. cn i take tea with no sugar n less milk?

    2. I dnt like banana, any other fruit which i cn take, pls suggest.

    thanks

  82. Hi. Let me know whether we can use white rice instead of brown rice, as brown rice is not available in my town.

    • Brown rice is better and healthier. White rice will add unnecessary calories as 1 cup is about 693calories. If u use white, maybe have half a cup or less

  83. Please help
    can Raw (vegetable) Banana add in vegetables?
    And Is salt can use for cocked/raw vegetable during program? if yes any quantity restriction?
    And Is potato use restrict for only once i.e 2nd day morning ?
    One cup of rice means what is measurement?

    regards
    Srinivas

  84. hi

    can peas can add in vegetables?

    thanks

  85. spices r allowed in vegetable diet?

  86. Am 24yrs old and my w8 is 56 i wan to gain my wight how plz help me

  87. hi,

    i tried this diet last week, i was unsuccessful in following it, please tell me the best way to do it, i am pure vegetarian and it is becoming tough for me to do this, please help, and i also wanted to ask:

    1) if the brown rice is one cup cooked or uncooked on day 5, 6 and 7?

    2) what else can we accompany with brown rice on day 5?

    • The brown rice should be cooked and you make Tomoto curry without spicy and little bit salt. You can have one cup of rice in morning and afternoon.

    • @Mission45 : Pls dont ask like these type of silly questions…….

      just imagine can u eat the Rice (White or Brown) whatever it is without cooking….??

      just think over it and ask the questions….. ok…..

      • stupid he’s asking about quantity. brown rice should b taken one cup and then cooked or after cooking u have to take it one cup. because there is lot of difference between cooked n uncooked quantity of rice moron. so u better read a question thrice before answering.

  88. Hi,
    I am 52 years old and having diabetes type 2 since last 10 yrs. Presently I am on Insulin. Shall I go for GM Diet plan for vegetables? I am salaried person. To follow the GM Diet plan shall I have to be on leave?

    Regards,

    Bharat.

    • Hi Bharat,
      It is not wise to do the GM diet if you have diabeties. The first day which is full of fruits and the 4th day with banana and milk is dangerous for you. But, a friend of mine with a similar condition like you did something interesting and lost weight. She ate moderate regular food for breakfast and lunch with more vegetables, cabbage wonder soup and salad and 1 roti. At night she had only soup and some boiled vegetable and a small piece of fruit. She lost about 4 kgs in 15 days. I thought that was cool..

  89. I do not drink milk, Can I drink almond milk or rice milk? Also what day can we start having the soup?

  90. Hi,
    It’s my day 3… I am feeling little bit week.

    1. Shall i add dal with Tomoto on Day 5, 6 & 7 otherwise How can i have only one bowl of Brown rice?

  91. I’m 21 year old. I feel happy Mentally & Physical after following this Vegetarian Diet Plan. Can I follow this plan without taking any break for short time, like 1-2 month? Or I have to take break? Is it necessary to take a break?

  92. milk is not vegan! rice replaces the beef (well, not really as much protein…), but what to replace the milk?? I have searched all over the internet and have not found any substitution!!

  93. I have already started the GM diet plan, for the 1st week I had brown rice on the 7th day but I didn’t like the taste of it at all..Can anyone please suggest an alternate for brown rice..?

  94. Hi,

    I am a vegan. What can i use as a substitute for the milk and meat? Can I use any non-dairy milk? Also, do you have to eat the soup or can you just do without?

  95. Hi all,

    i am on my 4th day of diet. I would like to know that can i have normal rice instead of brown rice on 5th, 6th & 7th day .

    On 4th day can i other fruits like water melon also with banans also.

    Please replu ASAP.

  96. Hi,
    I wanted to ask if we eat vegetable on Day 2, and it is cooked without oil but salt ,spices are added for taste.
    Is that ok?
    I tried following the diet earlier with a regular gym routine, but gave up on 3rd day.
    i was feeling weakness without any carb intake.
    Planning to take it up again as I have to shed a lot of weight in less time.
    Also tell me if 3 days gap between 1 week of GM Diet is fine.
    Suggest me the workout routine.

  97. hi i am Sonal. i am goin to start it from coming monday!!

  105. should i do any workout during this diet for better result?

  106. Day3 today !!! I am already down 1 KG. Its motivating…. :)

  107. Hi.. I am very keen to follow this diet, I had even tried it many times but gave up on the very 1st day. I want to start this diet again, I just had few questions. If you can clear it, I will be highly grateful to you:
    Day 1 – Can we have unlimited fruits including apple? And do we have to break it into breakfast, Lunch or dinner or it can be had any time?
    Day 2 – Can we take boiled potato with salt or is it to be just boiled potato? And as mentioned do we have to take vegetable soups in lunch and dinner or vegetables?
    Day 3 – can we have fruits and vegetables all day or break it into breakfast lunch dinner? And is there any proportion of fruits and vegetables, that needs to be taken?
    Day 4 – I wanted to be sure about do we have to take the shake of banana and milk or do we have to take them separately? Because in non – vegetarian diet, it is said that we need to take 8 bananas and 3 glasses of milk. And milk should be skimmed or semi – skimmed? And do we have to take it only in the breakfast or in lunch and dinner with soup also?
    Day 5 – 1 cup brown rice is for whole day or just a meal? and can we cook tomato and brown rice together so that it tastes good?
    Day 6 – Same question – do we have to eat the meal all day or just at the meal time?
    Day 7 – Rice, fruits and vegetables are to be taken together or 1 after the another?

    I also wanted to know, if you could suggest what all should we eat in the mix vegetable subji and can we add spices in it? and OIL???????

    And in wonder soup is there any vegetarian substitute for Lipton onion soup mix?

  116. Hi… I was 145 pounds. Today is my seventh day. I am 142.5 bounds. Just lost 1 kg. I don’t think this diet helped me in the weight reduction. I am not that satisfied with this diet. But I think there will be detoxification effect due to cleaning. So just contended with it but not so happy.

  117. Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks

  120. Good news, keep it up, make sure your eating though, as much of the soup and you need.

  121. oh ya… dnt mention my ten glasses of water (cheers)…. and cheated with three cups of tea (i feel i cant survive without that) and a small spoonful of biryani (i could not resist while cooking for the name of taste).

  122. Happens to most of us, just get back on and go for it :)
    No judging here on that account.

  123. Hi All, Im on day 4. i did loose 2.2 kgs till now but between 2nd and 3rd day my weight is constant at 82.7. I started at 85 kg. Im following it strictly. I guess its water weight as i do drink lots of water. Lets see. Eager to check my weight tom morning.

  124. Hi

    I and my wife are very eager to follow GM diet plan for vegetarians..But We dont consume potato as we follow jain religion Is there any other alternative?? And one more thing i want to ask is it fine if we consume Basmati rice instead of Brown rice?? We live in Gujarat and we get fruits like watermelon, blackberrys, apple banana chickoo, pineapple, coconut, cherries, peaches Can you suggest which should be consumed and which not..

  125. For potato substitute – maybe try celery root, taro? Also plantains.

    The fruit? I would not do peaches and pineapple..

    Hope that helps….

  126. hi
    today is my firsy day of GM diet….

    SW: 205 lbs
    CW:202 lbs

    hoping to loose atleast 5 kgs..

  127. Congrats, looks like you may be on route for a really good round.

  128. Can i consume peas [ black eyed] during the vegetable days , considering it a source of proteins and fiber ? [ and I am a vegan ]

  129. Since you are vegan, you just need to try it and see how it works. I don’t see why not, make sure you measure and do not overeat.

  130. Hi all,

    This is the first time I am doing this diet. I started this diet with 70.4 kgs and now todays is 5thday. so far its going good and already I lost 2.5kgs. I am vegetarian and following as said 1 cup of brownrice for whole day with tomatoes. But I guess I donot loose morethan this weight.Beacuse I will gain weight very easily. for the next days I will be consuming brown rice with either veg/fruits.

    Please clear me doubt that do we need to take the wonder soup everyday or it is designed for particular days? PLease answer me if anyone knows.

  131. eat the soup when you want, make sure you’re eating…

  132. Hi, tode was my 4th day of gm diet. I lost 1.8 kg weight. Earlier when i did this diet i lost 4 kg in one week. But honestly this time i m cheating lil bit. First two days are more diff to pass but after its lot easier. Thanks gm diet.

  133. I wanted to know whether once we follow the diet and lv in between will it increase our weight I’m planning to start the diet plan on Monday onwards so wanted to know is there any side effects by leaving it in between after once following the diet?????

  134. can any one help me out with it??? I too badly wanna shed my weight

  135. There may have been side effects yes leaving it, essentially any form of yo-yo dieting can cause issues. So stick to it this time, it is key!

  136. I wish to start the diet from coming monday but i need to know sum thing .. am allergic to bananas as i have breathing problem what in place of banana i can eat . and can i have fruit juice along with fruit.. please reply

  137. Please no fruit juice, you are essentially drinking tons of sugar and all of your calories. Look for a tropical fruit that is sold in your area. You just have to do the best you can but should be perfectly fine with a sub,

  138. I am going to start this diet as soon as possible. I just had a couple of questions >
    1) Can I avoid the wonder soup? Will it make any difference?
    2) Can I eat fruits, vegetables, etc on the suggested at any time or it should go like breakfast, lunch & dinner?
    As I am living outside I have some time problem.
    Please reply as soon as possible.

  139. 1) You need the wonder soup to me, this is not a fasting diet.
    2) I would try and stick to the allotted meals as much as possible, one reason struggle with weight is they fail to eat most of the day and cram their meals in the last few ours.

  140. Today is my first day and I have also added green tea (a cup of warm / hot water and regular green tea bag) twice or thrice a day to improve metabolism.. is it fine ?

  141. Herbal teas in my opinion should be fine as long as they have no sweetener…

  142. Today was my1st day … Hv bn feeling tired n suffering from serious headache

  143. Pink, this used to happen to me on diets, especially then because I used to drink lots of sodas ad caffeine. On the diet I came off and for a couple of days felt bad. Same can go for folks coming of sugar and such. Just a thought,

  144. hey…i want to ask if brown rice n tomatoes can be cooked together ???????? n is it one cup of rice for the whole day????????

  145. It can be cooked together and it’s one cup uncooked…

  146. hello all…
    I followed the diet before also…and today is my 4th day that is Banana and Milk…..
    1.How many litres is 8-12 glasses of water
    2. I had sprouts(mixed)along with lots of raw vegetables..2nd day and then
    3. 3rd cooked black gram curry with pumpkin that too cooked with salt and green chilli..as well as melons
    in between i had green tea with honey and lemon ..i am loosing weight for sure but the
    now main question
    A. is when can i use curd.B.can i use chapati in place of rice or white rice instead of brown rice

    PLEASE DO REPLY AS TOMMORROW IS MY DAY FOR CARBOHYDRATES AND TOMATOES

  147. Mona your questions are tough to answer. 1 – honey is not allowed. You care just drinking calories and sugar.
    2 – water, the point is to drink water, it will be different for everyone, that’s why water rules are tough, like you always hear drink 8 glasses a day. In dieting yes, drink plenty, but don’t over do it. 3 – chapati has wheat, basically sugar to your body and is not mentioned at all in this diet. Hope this helps.

  148. plzz……. explain this day’s diet as breakfast, lunch & dinner

    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.

  149. Hi ppl.. M starting this diet from tomorrow.. wish me luck… my current weight is 69 and my target after the diet is atleast 65 kgs…

  150. Good luck Kriti :)

  151. Hi,

    Today is my 5th day. i didn’t get brown rice in local grocery shop. Instead of brown rice, i am taking sprouts with tomatoes. Can i use sprouts with vegetables for day 6 and day 7 instead of brown rice? will it reduce my weight?

  152. If your’re getting enough starch/protein in the replacement it should be OK. Everyone need to please keep in mind this isn’t about what you want to eat and replace everything with but trying to stick to the diet as much as possible.

  153. Hi, I am on Day 5 of GM diet, but today is a fast due to religious reasons. My questions are:
    1. Is it okay to consume only fruits on Day 5?
    2. Should I start from Day 5 or Day 6 tomorrow?
    Please help

  154. Tough one Sarita, if it were me I would totally fast and do day 5 the next, then 6, 7…

  155. hey just a little query…can we add sugar to milk???

  156. Gariuma, sorry no. Actually I would 100% stay away form sugar all together. Milk has enough natural sugars already in it. Sorry :(

  157. Im drinking a cup of green tea with 1 tsp honey. Is honey okay for this diet plan? because some says honey aids in burning fat, and this is a natural sweetener.

  158. I don’t recommend honey, well at least on this diet, sorry. So high in fructose. Never heard before that a high sugar product like honey would ever help in reducing weight. Plus where is the honey from? Is it organic/raw? Or is it from bees that are bottled fed liquid sugar? just some food for thought :)

  159. Hi myself nagaveni. I wanna to reduce my weight. currently am 65kgs. Today i have started GM diet. 2nd day according to the Gm diet plan what vegetables i can have??(carrot, cucumber and what else)??

  160. Hi kevin,
    Nagaveni this is.
    Thanks for the suggestions.
    Will anybody can how i can have brown rice on 5th and 6 th day means with what curry i can have??

  161. do you mean how to cook/eat it. Spicing it up however you want is fine :) I am not a brown rice person much, but usually do some sort of simple stir fry on it.

  162. Is it ok to have coconut oil while on the diet as it doesn’t contain carbs? I don’t like to go a day without it.

  163. Coconut oil is amazing actually bypasses the liver for digestion and has things in it that assist in weight loss. Never overdo it but yes have some ,it is 90% of what I use here.

  164. My que is I m not eating rice since last one year nd I want to know which is best option for me in 5th day tomato with …..? Nd I m veggi ….so???

  169. hi,
    i am on my fourth day……………..can anyone pls help me with the fifth day diet for veggies………plsss

    • Hello Anish

      Here you go with the diet for Day 1 to day 7

      •Day 1. Only fruits. Just like in the regular GM diet, only fruits are allowed to be consumed on the first day. All fruits can be consumed in generous quantities except for bananas, as they are high in carbohydrates and potassium. Water intake should also be observed at 10-12 glasses during the whole day.
      •Day 2. The second day involves potato and vegetables. A cup of baked potato would serve as the body’s main energy source for the day, and then it can be followed up with vegetable dishes during lunch and dinner. Vegetable soup is highly powerful during this day, as it provides all the energy the body would need.
      •Day 3. Fruit and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables may be served the whole day, from breakfast to dinner, including midday snacks. Fruit juice can also be taken aside from water, although no bananas or potatoes are allowed.
      •Day 4. Bananas and milk. Banana and milk combos may be consumed all day, with vegetable soup servings during lunch and dinner. Banana and milk may be taken in the form of shakes, during breakfast and midday snacks.
      •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.

  170. Can I take green tea during GM diet plan?

  171. Green tea? No sweetener, and a couple of cups of you need.

  172. thank u Mona Lisa….
    wat abt the quantity of brown rice??one cup of uncooked brown rice and then cooking or is it one cup of cooked brown rice????

  173. one cup uncooked, so you will be eating more than one cupped once it’s cooked.

  174. Hi… today is my fifth day and I am happy with the diet plan as I have lost 4kgs till yesterday. Hope to loose more keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks to GM deit

  175. •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,
    can any one help, what is the detailed diet for day 5,6 and 7?
    on Day 5, only 1 cup or brown rice and tomatoes for the whole day or can we eat any fruits/vegetables?
    we have to eat the rice as a meal or can share for both lunch and dinner?

  176. Can i have lemon tea in any of the day(out of 7 days)

  177. Assuming it has no sweetener lemon tea should be OK…

  178. Hey i am starting my GM diet todat. Can i have one cup of tea in whole day and can i eat dry fruits like soaked almonds and fig

  179. Yesterday i have completed my 7 days and i reduced my weight to 6 kg. I will start after 2 weeks again but how to maintain before next GM diet.

  180. Yesterday i have completed my 7 days and i lost nearly 6 kg. I will start after 2 weeks again but how to maintain(6 kg loss) before next GM diet.

  181. I did Veg diet as I am purely vegetarian. Just follow the eatables mentioned in GM diet

  183. thanks soo much for your diet plan pramod, It will surely help me…..tanks much

  184. Thanks Pramod……it will definetaly help me. thanks much

  185. tea fine if no sweetener, no nits, no dried fruit. Think long term on this, dried fruit and just concentrated forms of sugar. Beware …..

  186. can 2 pegs – be taken in a day

  187. 2 pegs? what are they?

  188. hey i stay in hostel and it is not possible for me to prepare the soup, vegetables and brown rice everyday. Can i prepare and keep in the fridge and have it for next two three days. one more confusion can i have carrots in vegetable and fruit juice without sugar. Can vegetable soup be taken any of these seven days.

  189. Soup and rice should b fine in the fridge. Carrots no, not really. And no on fruit juice, loaded with fructose and high in sugar. I never recommend fruit juice ever. Sorry… :)

  190. Hey, is Boiled potato fine instead of baked? can i skip potato and just take bottle gourd and cabbage with vegetable soup.

  191. and one more thing juice home made i am asking not the packed one.

  192. why no carrot i did not understand because we always use carrot in salad also. Its a vegetable only. I am on the second day of GM diet. Kindly reply soon.

  193. khushbu bahgat – eat boiled potatoes, the same. Carrots? Well it appears you want them so go for it. But carrots have a different makeup to them than other veg. If you’r just eating a few then you should be OK. Your homemade fruit juice is full of fructose and your drinking all your calories without the fiber. NO good, sorry. You may want to Google this and study up on it some, but I suppose if you want your juice then you will do it anyway. But there is a reason it does not say go ahead and drink fruit juice on this diet.

  194. Hi…. On the second day I had two breads…… Should i continue with the diet or start it all over again?

  195. Saurabh, I would wait a couple of days and start over,,,, my opinion

  196. khushbu bahgat, I agree with Sheri totally on the juice. On carrots if you’re just eating some mixed with other veg then fine :)

  197. Thanks all for help. Kindly call me khushbu

  198. I did not eat carrot any ways. I ate cabbage And bottle gourd. Tomorrow is third day so I think tomorrow I can have juice. Right. 2nd day successful.

  199. khushbu, orange juice or coconut water fine in moderation, but other fruit, beware – all fructose, no fiber, bad idea, you really seem to like your juice :)

  200. hey today is my fourth day of GM diet, I am having Banana and skimmed milk. I will be having 7 to 8 banana in complete day with 2-3 glass of milk. I am suppose to eat
    5 Day: Brown rice(one cup) with tomato( cooked in pressure cooker) for whole day.
    6 Day: Brown rice with vegetables.(one cup)
    7 Day: Brown rice with vegetables and fruits(2 cups)

    I am taking one time green tea and normal tea two times(1/2 cup) with sugar free.

    Kindly suggest if any modification required.

  201. khushbu, you seem to be lacking food in general, need more, the soup, etc….. Since you can’t eat soup, need raw veggies or something…

  202. Hi

    Today is my day 5, brown rice and tomato day. I checked my weight last night it was still the same although I am following this diet very strictly. My husband did it last year and said that the weight sheds on 6 or 7 day so you see the weight reduction on your last day. Is it true or the diet is not working for me? The other thing is can v have idlis on Day 5 instead of brown rice? I was feeling nauseatic so had a small cup of tea without sugar today morning, is it ok? Please advice.

  203. Hi Taran……

    This is the fourth time i am doing GM Diet(veg)

    First time i did nearly 4 months ago – I reduced 2.5 Kgs
    Second time i Did 3 months ago – I lost 3 kgs
    Third time i did 1 week ago- I lost 6 Kgs
    It is suggested that in between two diet programs there should be a gap of 2 weeks but just after 1 week i started again and today is my fifth day and – I lost 4 Kgs

    One suggestion have more and more water………………..

  204. Thank you for the reply.

    I am having more and more water. Guess your response sounds encouraging. Any idea about idlis?

  205. Hey. Today I completed 5 days today. I had 1 idly in the morning as brown rice was not prepared. From afternoon I had. 1 cup brown rice. But I think the quantity is so much to consume in a day. I had cabbage and onions also a little as u asked to eat vagetables. Kindly suggest if its fine.

  206. Sounds good khushbu :)

  207. I m on 6th day of diet. I m looking little slim but when I checked my weight no much difference. Why so. Do depresses today after cheking weight.

  208. hey i am planning to withdraw now as i am not satisfied. Will it help me 6 days GM diet. Kindly suggest. And give me a proper diet with 7 days plan so that i can try after 2-3 weeks. Kindly suggest me with timings. Tomorrow i will have brown rice but will have few curry as i am going to my friends house tomorrow. Kindly suggest.ASAP

  209. It is good you have slimmed down, you can retain weight for other reasons looking back on the diet or info you have posted it seems you have not really followed much as well. This makes it hard to help.

  210. Ok. Can u give me a proper diet with timings so that I can follow that properly. And one more thing according to me I really followed the diet for 5 days.

  211. 5 days? It’s a 7 day diet. The website 100% lays it out for you, samples meals and everything, not much more I can do, sorry. :)

  212. Can i have green tea in all the days in addition to water ?
    Because i would feel that i’m having something hot and healthier.
    Moreover, it will hydrate me.

  213. Vignesh, water yes of course drink.

    green tea plain no sweetener fine…

  214. I am on 5th day of GMD.Lost abt 4 kgs. I did it before and had lost 5 kilos.(3 months ago).It really works but easy to gain the weight back if start eating junk food after the Diet plan is over.

  215. I am on my 4th day of GMD, lost 2 kgs and counting more. Though I have not followed it strictly but keep the minimum standard. Not sure in long run the impact will sustain or not!! I am feeling happy, GMD rocks.

  216. Can i have coconut water in the GM diet plan?

  217. I have almost completed 2nd day of the diet plan and i just had half chocolate inbetween. will that affect the weight loss i am expecting?

  218. Out of seven days we can take Coconut water any day………………

  219. i hate eating raw tomatos…Can i replace it by fruits..?

  220. Can i add salt to veggies..? Can i ve plain cooked dal or channa in day of veggies..?

  221. can i ve sprouts/ soya chunks in vegetables day..?
    can i ve paneer along wid rice in day 6/ 7?
    Plzz reply…

  222. Hi.. I want to start gmdiet plan but i am consuming homopathy medicine everyday. Is it ok if i continue my meds with the diet?

  223. Hi…
    1 cup Brown rice on day 5-7, means cooked/uncooked?

  224. Hello Neha,

    Today is my 5th day of Diet Plan. As i am feeling very lightly.

    But in the 4th day I consumed little bit sugar with milk and banana.There is a south Indian dish called ‘Rasayana’ which is prepared by mixing milk, banana and sugar. it’s delicious.

    Is it OK ??? ;) ;)

    • Having banana with coconut and spices is one thing, but loading the already sweet banana up with milk and sugar. NO, NEVER and you may want to reconsider these things coming out of the diet. Milk has natural sugar in it, bananas tons of fructose, not to mention you added sugar. SORRY :)

  225. Hi,
    Need some help… I have followed the diet plan n i think( cause i dint believe the weight machine :D) I have reduced 7 kg in a week. So my question is how to maintain this weight now… any tips pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  226. Day 2 almost over.. Feeling Hungry… I don’t think I will be able to go through Day 3….

    • Emotional hunger? If you are eating the soup you should be OK…. Well other than desiring goodies that you were used to having maybe…

  227. Hi,
    I want to start this diet from tomorrow. Just wanted to know two things.
    1) can I use a pinch of black pepper (fresh ground) with boiled vegerables ?
    2) On Day 5, can I use boiled tomatoes ? ot should they be raw ?
    Regards,
    Dinesh

  228. Admin..
    Tomorow is my fifth dy..One cup of cooked brown rice is enough for a whole day? Tell me the schedule for morning afternoon and night?

  229. Hi – I have been following thru this diet and I am confused about why brown rice is being prescribed for day 5 & 6 … how can it be a substitute for beef? brown rice is more carbs which get introduced on day 7 – shouldn’t beef be substituted with another protein like tofu, beans etc on day 5 & 6?

    • It does, but folks are quite picky and want to refine it down to just a few things, which is fine and up to them, Diet works best done right. If you want to use beans, tofu, etc fine, make sure it has some fat as beef would.

      • gotcha – yea I’ve sauteed tofu with very little canola oil so it does get some fat…thanks for the explanation….trying to follow diet as close as possible.

        • run from veggie and seed oils like that, go for olive, coconut and palm if you can :)

          All else sounds good…

          • Gotcha….well I lost 5 lbs …. not bad considering it was my first time doing it … i had some goof ups along the way but next time I will be better prepared!

            btw – since we know this diet works – I would be (and probably others too) interested in knowing the theory/philosophy behind the diet….I know we just follow whats said for everyday but would be good to know exactly why this leads to reduced weight.

            Based on my understanding of it – it seems to essentially get us on significantly low carbs / low fat foods initially n then re-introducing carbs/fats in smaller portions but I’m sure there’s more to it than that.

            Anyways, good info and very helpful for ppl trying to lose weight :) Thanks!

  230. Hey Admin…

    I’m on the first day of diet. I’m trying this for the first time in my life as I any diet plan didn’t help me. I’ve some queries.

    1)Can I continue my yoga, aerobics and jogging with this diet as its already my routine.

    2) Can I continuously repeat this week diet for 3 times? If yes, its awesome ! If not then what gap and diet should I maintain during that time?

    Please help !

    Dheeraj.

  231. Good Brij…

    Goof ups can hurt – but happen. To me the biggest theory is think about what you are cutting. Refined carbs, sugars, white flour, you are eating meals as opposed to not eating all day and eating huge dinners and so on. There is balance to it. But the problem is, people just go back to their old lifestyle and think they can get away with it. I had to say to myself at some point, I am 41, I have to stop going back to what’s bad, ever since I did, my weight stays normal. It is awesome.

    You do want to work back in things slowly, but have to find a lifestyle that works. What I see here, and is common here people eat too much wheat breads.

  232. carrot will be counted in fruits or vegetable. can i drink fresh carrot juice if yes then i want quantity ?????

    • You can have juice when it calls for juice in the sample plans for each day. To just drink carrot juice when you want is a bad idea, carrots are full of sugar, meaning when you juice them. So if you area juicer, please make carrot 1/8th of the juice, do greens and other veg as well.

  233. hey,
    i m a student. and i live in a hostel. so i don’t have any facility to cook.
    i eat food from an outside mess. i want to follow this diet but the only problem is that a won’t
    be able to follow it the way its been given….. i m 90 kg right now, want to follow dis diet but it seems impossible for me to follow it being in the hostel. please suggest something so that i can follow gm diet plan……

  234. no not possible to get pre cooked food. a microwave has been provided in my hostel but that too is not sufficient enough to cook vegetables and soup…. i have one more question, with the help of gm diet we can loose up to 7 kg easily in a week, but what after we stop following this diet and come back to our normal diet.. am i going to put on the weight back which i lost ?? because this diet can’t be followed forever……

    • No it cant’ be followed forever, we do not promote that, it show you you need a lifestyle change and you need to make one. You can’ continue to eat the way you have forever or you will continue to get worse. Do you not see your normal diet made you unhealthy? Mine made me that way, I can’t go back…

  235. Hai today is my 4th day in gm diet program,but past 3 days daily i will take (no cholesterol,no trans fat,no artificail colours) Britannia Nutri Choice Classic Lite Cracker biscuits 100gm its any impact in my diet

  236. Hi, i today is my 6th day today, sincerely following vegetarian diet plan, but still i have lost only 1kg. I followed this diet earlier also, then also i lost only 1kg… I expected more, can you tell, what is wrong??

    • What modifications were you making? did you eat the soup?

      • I did eat the soup. Only difference i can think of , is may be somewat lesser water, i could have only 4-5 glasses of water. Also i used to have 1 cup of tea in the morning

        • the water may be a little low, but not everyone is meant to drink the same amount. did you eat any grains? Muesli? how many bananas? Please keep in ind not all diets work great the first time for everyone…

  237. Hi, today is my 5th day, but i lost just 500gms…i go for walking for 45 mins everyday. i feel so sad.. wat wrong i did in my diet plan. But i didnt have wonder soup…

    • You need the soup, if you read the comments here the most success is found eating the soup. Also what were your modifications. Most people make so many, it just will not work well.

  238. Hiii…. m also on gm diet nd 2day z my 4th day…but m very much addicted of tea..minimum two cup in a day…so is it okie with diet or not??

  239. Hi…
    Instead of soup, can we have it as cooked cabbage..?

  250. Hi Guys,

    This really work, i loose 3.1 Kg on starting of Day 4 and i hope i go to max level of 8 KG.

    Also want to clear, It’s not easy et all.

    Thanks a lot and happy dieting

  251. Hi,
    Today is my 3rd day. I had cold coffee in the evening. Otherwise was following the diet plan strictly. Will this effect my weight loss?

    Please help.

    • Should not so long as it did not have sugar and cream, but coffee before bed can be really bad as far as affecting sleep, circadian rhythms and eventually weight loss. Be careful when you eat and drink.

  252. Hi I am on my 5th day.. I can’t eat tomatoes so what can I substitute it with n secondly any recipes on how to cool d brown rice? Thanks

  253. I lost 3.2 kg I dint give 100%. but this is really doing good for me.
    Best fruits and veggies which helps in weight loss.
    Papaya, Melon’s (Musk, water sun etc), strawberries, blue berries, Kivi, Guava, Figs.
    Ash guard, Cabbage, Beans and carrots, Spinach.

    we should know one thing is this is not permanent solution, real challenge is to mentation that weight. So what we can do is avoid rice during night have rotis or fruit bowl or something light and avoid fatty foods.

  254. Few grains are very good. Horse Gram, soybean, jowar and barley. we can use them during off diet.

    • Actually not for most people, they have little health value, little nutrients and unless they are organic and not bleached and over processed, they are junk. Especially to those with thyroid issues and weight problems. Grains can be a huge issue, hence no grains on this diet, sorry.

  255. 5th day what I did. had little rice with chopped tomatoes. and I made soup of tomatoes and whole day.

  256. I will be starting my Gm diet by tomorrow.Right now I am 70 kgs and have hypothroid. Let see how it affects me positively… Waiting to loose at least 3-4 kgs…

    Will let you know on 7 day about the weight.

    Thanks & Regards
    Megha

    • make sure you get good fats, I will say if you have thyroid issues you should not eat gluten! No grains and make sure on the diet you include a little extra good fat like olive, coconut, palm or animal oils/fats.

  257. Which products have gluten and also I am gng for GM vegetarian diet… Will I really get results as per my height my weight should be 55 , therefore while doing Gm diet I can go for gym…as I am not receiving good results while gng on for gym as well fr 45 minutes…

  258. Day 2 of my Gm diet ..I felt hungry very often today….started with boiled potato and then had boiled vegetables carrots, baby corn , sweet corn, capcicum., later had 6 glasses of water till noon…and now planing to have soup… Had gym yesterday ….was 68.1 yesterday.,.will go gym today and also will check weight.

  259. Just wanted whether u can hv dal on the 4th day without oil

  260. Hi,

    Today is my 4th day and i am on Milk and Banana , what else can be eat apart from soup on this day as banana is tough to eat all the time.
    Also i had 2 spoon namkeen yesterday at a relative house , will it effect much on my plan ?

  261. Hi,

    I am 26 and am not overweight. I am looking to detox and loose some extra inches & Kgs for an upcoming event.
    I am on a third day of my diet and its tough. I have some doubts, please help.

    1. Is it fine to a have a biscuit a day . ( need some energy/ taste buds ask for it ;) )
    2. I gym along with my diet, is there some energy substitute, I can have
    3. Is it fine to have a green day during the regime
    4. Can i use knor vegetable soup the forth day
    5. For brown rice, can i use spices to cook it.

    • 1) no
      2) coconut water
      3) green day? you mean juicing greens?
      4) you can have soup for day 4.
      5) yes on spices and you need some fat so use some good oil

  262. Me, my wife, and my daughter are in the GM DIET plan

    NOTE: We are vegetarians.

    A. Please advise the quantity of each diet for each day (for eg. No of bananas & quantity of milk on day 4 / portion or weight of vegetables / fruits on day 1, 2 & 3)

    B. Can we take red kidney bean instead of beef on day 5? If so, quantity.

    C. Please also advise items to avoid as vegetarians on this plan.

    Thanks in advance.

    Natarajan@Dubai

  263. A) Look in the sidebar at the top, click each day, it tells you QTY. Day 4 examples, 4 to 5 bananas max all day.
    B) Beans OK, 1.5 cups cooked or so, you need at least a teaspoon of good oil with it for the fat. Meat has fat.
    C) Avoid anything we don’t mention. NO sugar, NO grains, etc. You can have spices, salt, tea with no sugar, etc…

    Good luck to you all :)

  264. Hi,

    1.Today is 3rd day im follwing GM diet today i had kiran melon juice only with water but withthout sugar, it will create any problem or do i need to start from again?
    2.another thing while we taking soup shall we add salt and pepper litle amount?
    3.While we taking brown rice and tomato shall i boil both with mixing of brown rice and tomato and little amount of salt and chilly powder?

    • 1) Just keep going…
      2) Yes you can have any dried herbs and spices you like, and salt/pepper.
      3) That is fine, and you need at least a teaspoon of oil, like olive oil, any time you replace meat you need some fat….

  265. Hi,

    Today is my 5th day but i had 3 tomatoes only i cant have tooo much feel vomit sensation but i had more water. Is that is ok?

    • Please, if you feel sick back off. DO what your body is telling you, We are not doctors, just trying to say that if you feel sick don’t eat for the sake of the diet. Maybe try a banana or 2, something that sounds better on your belly.

  266. where I can get gm wonder soup? or it can be prepared in home

  267. Hi, I am on my 3rd day of GM diet and has lost 1 1/2 kg. just wanted to check that can I have tea with milk. half cup day and eve.. I have been taking tea with milk once a day . I am addict to tea and can’t stop having it. also can I use 1 teaspoon of olive oil to stir fry my veggies..please reply

    • tea is fine, no sweetener though. you can add oil to your veg/brown rice in replacement on meat, if you need some on your reg. veg days, a 1/2 teaspoon only.

  268. Hi ,
    Today is my first day for the 7 days diet plan.. can i have tetly tea with lemon flavour with 1/4th tp of sugar.
    Also please suggest me for Day 2 can i add salt and chilly a bit for cooked vegs which i will cook without oil?

    • tea fine, NO sugar….. salt is fine, no oil…. I guess a 1/2 teaspoon would not hurt, go over that though and it will not be good.

  269. Hi today is my 6th day.
    So far I reduced 4kg during these diet period.
    My doubts:
    1.On 6th day, shall I take chicken instead of brown rice. If can take chicken means, it’s fried or boiled.

    2.After one week diet plan should I follow up this frequently to sustain the weight or can leave.?

    • 1) chicken better, baked or boiled best.
      2) My suggestion is to now change your lifestyle, cut bad grains, sugars, etc. maybe do it again in 2 weeks or a month, SO do it more frequently, up to you.

  270. Can I consume chicken instead of beef?

  271. can i include boiled sweet corn in my veggie meal???

    • a little sweet corn to season a dish so to speak, but I would typically say no if it comes out of a can. They is little to no redeeming health value from canned sweet corn.

  272. Dear Admin,

    Today is my 4th day and all going well so far.Thanks to GM diet and you.I am a pure vegetarian.Please advise what i can have tomorrow(on 5th day) and day after(6th day).Also,the tomato that i am suppose to have tomorrow needs to be fried/cooked or raw?Brown rice i guess should be boiled?Please advise so that i can prepare my food for tomorrow accordingly

  273. Thanks a lot.Can i eat white rice instead of brown.Will that effect the diet plan?

  274. Sir,3 questions please:
    1).On day 5,can I have white rice(boiled) instead of brown
    2).To add fat,can I fry 6-7 tomatoes in 2 spoon olive oil and then consume them all during the day.
    3).On day 6,can I fry the vegetables in 1-2 spoons olive oil or i need to have raw/boiled.

    Thanks a lot for your quick responses.

    • 1) yes
      2) yes, assuming these are what’s eaten with the meat replacement.
      3) no, no extra oil unless it is the meat portion of meal. you can eat raw or steam/boil

  275. I saw lot of comments. On the third day itself they lost weight upto 3 kgs. Am also ony third day, no change in my weight. Is that mean am not following the diet properly? Or i can c d result at the end of my diet???? But am following the diet very strictly…

    • Weight loss can vary. Are you doing anything additional? coffee with sugar? adding grains of any kind? what did you day 1 and 2 look like?

      • I wont drink coffee n tea even milk too… no grains.

      • And also i have another question. Am working in night shift(us shift). Just now i came home from work. Now d time is 5 am. Today is my fourth day of diet. Had one banana and drank two glasses of water. Will the timings affect my diet? And s that a reason of no change in my weight?

        • Well working off shifts yes can seriously affect weight loss, your circadian rhythms have a ton to do with it. But hang in there, there’s nothing you can do about that other than get back on 1st shift one day. That’s why you really need to be seriously healthy, you cannot afford to eat poorly.

          • I started my diet on saturday. So i had my diet as usual in the day shift. Still following the same way. But am following very strictly and eating healthy only. Also am not feeling tired because of the shifts. But i just wanna make sure that can i c any result at the end of my diet or there is no use of the diet because of the shifts????? :-(

  276. Thanks a lot Sir,

    On day 6,can I fry the vegetables in 1-2 spoons olive oil or I need to have raw/boiled.I am a pure vegetarian and i will have the same along with the rice.

  277. vaishu, yes you can lose weight, my point is being on a different shift, no matter what the diet is, it may hinder it. It also may not. It’s just tougher.

  278. Day7 going on..can i replace brown rice with sona masuri rice i.e. white rice?

  279. today is my 3rd day,m really worried about day 4.can u mention some veg foods for tommorow……… and can we have brown bread on day 5!! plz reply

  280. Hi Admin,
    I have few questions.
    1.Can I have green tea?If yes how many cups I can have?
    2.Can I have fresh corn boiled on second & third days?
    3.Can I use honey to season the fruits?

    Please reply …Thanks In Advance….

  281. hie. iam 38 with high blood pressure and taking bp tablets. Can l take this diet please reply

  282. Can a diabetic person take bananas in this diet programme. If not, pls suggest alternate, since they are job goers (10 to 5 pm).

  283. Hi,
    Once completing the 7 day cycle…. what next?
    Should I repeat of keep some gap in between..

    • Up to you, I prefer folks wait at least 2 weeks before doing again. Now you have to make the decision to make a lifestyle change, no matter the diet the weight will not stay off if you don’t make changes.

  284. With rice, can I have curd or daal?

  285. hello, I just started the GM diet vegetarian, I’m vegan so I have no problems removing food. The only thing that worries me is the amount, I do sports and I need energy, and day 5, only a cup of rice and six tomatoes seems to me little by little throughout the day, I do not think I will arrive in the evening only with that food, I can eat rice also in the evening and many more tomatoes? (I eat brown rice and a cup converted into Italy is about 180 grams) correct me if I’m wrong.
    I also wanted to know the spices are granted? type pepper, nutmeg, etc..
    I guess the avocado and almonds are prohibited….
    answer me thanks

    • Well eating the meat is plenty of food, read the regular day 5 plan, do as follows and add a bowl of rice to each meat sub and try that. Also add a little oil to each dish. You can also have the soup. Spices are fine, almonds no and avocado no, on this diet of course.

  286. shilpa priya, no buttermilk, yes on coconut water.

  287. i m a sugar patient . so eating bananas is nt suitable for me . is der any oher substitute for it dat i can go for .it ll be of great help.

  288. Thanks….G.M
    I lost 12 KG from last three weeks.
    Past-94 KG
    Now-82 KG…

    Thanks again …

  289. Can we eat sprouts instead of rice??

  290. Hi, I m almost at the end of day 4, I did not want to check my weight but I did. I do not reduce a single pound. I was 64.4kg one the day 1 and its same one day 4 too. I am feeling weak now. Should I continue the plane for rest days? please suggest me as soon as possible.

    • Up to you, what has you diet been like? any cheats? are you eating the soup? How many bananas did you eat today?

  291. i am on six day of my GM diet. Lost around 3 kgs. can u suggest can i take orange juice(without sugar) on 7th day.

  292. hi , this is my 10th day and i have lost 12kgs .
    this diet works wonderfully well if u follow it religiously . i did not take salt , sugar (just a little in my cough syrup) , and oil any kind .
    i just have a doubt , that what diet should i follow after my gm diet gets over ? i want to start weightlifting and i was bulky before and would really want my body to shape up now . please help

    • eat balanced meals, a protein, lots of veg, you need a starch like some white rice or root veg (potatoes, yams, etc). If you are eating sugar, drinking sugared drinks and such it will cause issues. Also beware of grains.

  293. Today is my third day, the 1st day i have reduced 1 kg and the 2nd day amazing 700 gms. a total of 1.7kgs in 2 days.

    the second day i did not feel the fatigue to the extent what i felt on the first day, however was a little tired evening. had only vegetables. started with 2 medium sized baked potato and a little raw beans.

    had cucumber and tomato with me sliced to eat through the day, used to eat a slice whenever i felt uncomfortable.

    for lunch i had baked vegetables,

    Dinner was with raw beans,cucumber and tomatos. (intake was lesser when compared to the first day)

    feeling excited with this diet, looks really good.

    3rd day, today has started well with melons,cantaloup,cucumber,tomatos (all in small qty)

    shall post tomorrow again about how today goes!!!

    Best Regards

    Sachin

  294. hi,

    today i completed 6 and a half day lost 3kgs evening i am going in party so have to break this diet now. 6 and a half day will also help na. I wont eat much but will have chicken and roti. Is it fine of 6 and a half day. Kindly advice asap.

  295. hey i had two pieces of chicken with roti and 2 pieces of fish on 7th day(last day at lunch) of my GM diet i lost arond 3 kgs. Kindly advice

    • Roti? Well your not doing the diet right sorry. No grains…. You will find unfortunately those empty useless nutrient-less calories are a diet killer.

  296. 3 questions before begining:
    No sweetener or sugar, but stevia?
    Lactose intolerant here, can I replace the milk or just omit it?
    Wonder soup can be taken on day one, and every single day?
    Thank a lot!

    • Stevia causes you to be more hungry, stay away from it during the diet. Any no calorie sweetener will, it still stimulates an insulin response. No other sugar. replace with almond or coconut milk. soup taken any day when you need food :)

  297. Hi,

    I did GM diet lost 3kgs and again put on the same. Again starting GM diet form today onwards. Can i have lemon water in the morning. I am addicted to tea. Can i have tea once in a day. Kindly suggest me the proper diet. i really need to reduce.

    • tea fine no sweetener!!! Your sweet tea is one way weight gain can happen. How did you eat after the diet? Did you go back to the way you used to eat before?

  298. but yes i take green tea twice

    I just wanted to ask one thing. I have taken Tea(with milk and sugar) for the last two days .
    Will it have any adverse effect?
    Could anyone please tell?
    Thanks!

    • Then you are ruining the diet and doing something unhealthy. Sorry. YES it will affect you, drinking a sugary fluid is so unbalanced, so bad for your blood sugar.

  307. is there any alternative to brown rice in gm diet

  308. should smokers stop smoking while taking this Diet

  309. should smokers stop smoking completely while taking this Diet
    i needed answer

  310. Hie. Thank you very much for this diet. We appreciate. One cup of rice on day 5. ls this a boiled cup or one cup not boiled?

  311. What can I use instead of rice

  312. Hi,
    I don’t like plain milk. Can I add Bournvita/ Badam powder to milk ?

  313. Hi,

    What all spices are permitted during this program. Can I use Garlic powder or Garlic Salt? Also, Is the Brown Rice supposed to be taken plain or can add some veegie to it.

    Thanks

  314. Hi,
    Today was my day 4 & I m feeling good. but I had 3 bananas & 1 cup milk with a serving of soup in the evening. I could not get myself to eat more than 3 bananas since I was full. Please advise if this will effect the amount of nutrients that I have taken & shd I compensate by eating the rest of bananas ( 3 more I guess) tomorrow. I strictly followed the meal plan rest of the days. Thanks!

  315. Thanks Kevin.
    And for today (day 5) can I have the tomatoes cooked in a bit of olive oil with some standard Indian spices & onions? will it destroy the uric acid content? As for rest of the meal plan, I am having the Indian cottage cheese (paneer 100 gms) + brown rice (weighing 100 gms after cooking). And of course lots of the wonder liquid water! btw I have already lost 3 kilos since day 1 morning before starting the diet.

    • yes cooked fine.oil is fine because if you are replacing meat you need some fat, meat has fat, so should substitute..

  316. Kevin,
    sorry for asking a silly question about the uric acid in tomatoes! I believe we r taking the tomatoes to drain the uric acid out of the body & not to consume it, tomatoes themselves have less of it.
    actually I was simultaneously checking on this diet at some other site & the way they have written is not clear at all.

    • Tomatoes are great, unless you have SIBO (have issues with night shades). What you need to watch is sugar and wheat.

  317. thanks for the info. so far so good. but now the difficult part is what to eat during the break of 2 weeks once I finish. I have to do at least 2 more cycles of this diet.

  318. Hi,

    I want to start GM Diet.. Kindly provide me few clarifications..

    1. Please mention preferred vegetables.
    2. Can vegetables be microwave cooked.
    3. Can we add salt & Chilli
    4. In skimmed milk can we add sugar (sugar free tablets)

    Awaiting for ur reply..
    Thanking You,

    CHANDRIKA
    Hyderabad,India

    • 1) We list these on each day of the plan.
      2) Never microwave anything.. Steam or with a little oil depending on the day, we tell you each day.
      3) salt, spices and herbs are yes OK.
      4) NEVER EVER eat fake sugar, your body is not tricked, it contributes heavily to weight gain and health issues.

  319. Hi,
    on day 7 if I have brown rice for 2 meals how much quantity (in grams) can I have for each meal?

  320. please give me the measurement of cooked brown rice. Thanks!

  321. Hi,
    Please let me know, how can we cook vegetables without oil?
    Also, I drink milk everyday and very fond of it, but in GM diet plan, milk is to be consumed only on 4th day. Can i drink on other days too or only on 4th day…? and i don’t like plain milk. i put bournvita in milk, can i take that also ?

    • steam them. no milk everyday, stick to the plan. bournvita is terrible for you and will never be a contributing factor to weight loss, but it will certainly help you gain weight.

  322. Hi,
    I finished my 7 days yesterday. I have lost 4 kilos in total!! That is very good considering that I have hypothyroid, was on anti-depressant medication for 1 1/2 years which made me gain weight.
    I am still not clear about how much cooked brown rice to take on day 7 because I measure in grams on a kitchen scale. Please can you give me the quantity to be taken per meal (2 meals for the day) in grams.
    I have to do the diet at least 2 more times!
    Thanks for the help all the way.

  323. Ok. I will keep in mind.
    and how many grams of cooked brown rice per meal on day 7? Please!
    on day 6, I had 75 gms paneer (Indian cottage cheese) with 150 gms cooked brown rice along with the veggies. is that ok ?

  324. Hi
    Whenever I am having boiled vegetables, can I add pinch of salt and black pepper to them?

  325. Ok. Thank you.

  326. What kind of light exercises can I do during GM diet plan? Is 15-20 min of brisk walk enough?

    • Hello
      Exercise is up to each person, I like HIT or Burst training. Short burst working out, better for the body, just make sure you get your heart rate up during whatever you do.

  327. Hi,
    I lost exactly 1 kilo each of fat, muscle & water while on the GM diet. I had done Body Composition Analysis before & after the 7 day vegetarian diet & this is the result. Is this expected or results can be better?
    One way to improve is by adding meat that I eat .. lamb, poultry, sea food on the days 5-7 so that I can increase chances of losing more fat & decrease the muscle loss.
    I don’t take beef. So please advise if any plan is available which includes these foods. I am regularly doing exercise. On the diet I did some moderate exercise on days 4 & 5 but felt light headed & a bit dizzy. So did not do workouts on 6-7 days.
    Thanks.

    • Hello….
      Those numbers even with that test can be off some. The key to me to this diet is to get people off of high grain and processed food diets. That is the real problem when it comes to you feeling light headed, not this diet. Your body will react to the fact you have cut sugar, processed foods, etc, It takes time for the body to adjust, some longer than others. Did you say you are looking for a diet plan to do after the diet? Yest hose proteins are a fine substitute for beef….

  328. Btw I am 45 year old Indian women!

  329. Can I have some dry fruits like raisins almonds walnut? If yes then on which day.. Or strictly no to dry fruits?

  330. Hi,
    I was asking if a GM diet plan is available giving exact portions of chicken, lamb, fish as substitutes for beef. This diet definitely works for me. I look & feel much better, so will do more rounds.
    Meanwhile will stick to healthy eating habits & exercise.

  331. btw I have started to take greek yogurt so that I get protein minus the fat. is it good?
    It was not available earlier in the country I live, Qatar but found it recently at a local supermarket selling organic foods. These organic foods come from USA & are so expensive here!

  332. Hi there,

    I just wanna know :-
    1) can I add salt,black pepper(crushed),bit of lime drops to salads and soups?
    2) can u suggest me something other than brown rice…like chapati?
    3) can I add bottle gourd(gheea or dudhi) with onion and carrots in soup ?

    thanks before hand… :-)

    • 1) Yes, you can also do other dried herbs and spices.
      2) No bread, no way on this diet. Try white rice or quinoa
      3) Sure, just not too much

  333. About 1 spoon of cornflour can be added in vegetable soup?

  334. hi……… guys this is my day 2 and i am very tried…….. can we eat salt during these 7 days …??
    because my mom s telling that without sugar and salt our body ll lose the energy sp can some one tell fast that can i intake salt with veg.

    • Salt, pepper and spices are great. go for it. Just never over do salt. There is sugar in fruit called fructose. carbs give you energy not refined sugar, it’s toxic and no good for you.

  335. Hi,
    Please send me the sample diet plan for day 5 vegetarian as I could nt find much for day 5 vegetarian plan. Also let me know what all can I use as a substitute for beef. I am a vegetarian but I can take eggs. When can I have eggs and in which form.

  336. Look up on this page, it says day 5. I would do whole eggs, 3 per meat sub.

  337. You mean to say whole eggs 3 per meat subs means bolied egg white + yellow part? And that too 3 per day..for days 5,6,7 each along with brown rice? And can i take cottage cheese also and in how much quantity?

  338. Either eggs or cottage cheese or both I can take?

  339. Hi,
    It is one week break today since I finished my first round of GM-vegetarian diet. Feeling good, eating well & doing exercise.
    Yesterday I had samosa chat (yummy!) + some jalebis though. My favorite Indian snacks!
    I have gained about 1 1/2 kilos since the diet. But generally being careful of what I eat, also weighing the portions & counting calories.

    • Keep in mind you can eat lower calorie processed foods and grains and gain loads of weight. It’s great your trying a new start, but you really must look to all 100% whole natural foods. Good fats, balanced meals, etc. Counting calories will ruin your body over time, you are making a new set point in you body as to how your body deals with calories, once you lower, you will gain weight so easily if you ever increase calories. Your weight loss will also stop.

  340. Are boiled eggs allowed on day 6 and 7 ?

  341. Hi author!
    Good advice, thanks for words of encouragement.
    I generally don’t take processed foods. I am trying to control eating grains though avoiding them totally is difficult for me. So I am working on gradually reducing their quantity these past few days….and yes getting used to eating more of fruits, salads! I liked the GM wonder soup when on the diet, so I am planning to have it today though I am not on the diet..may be include some more varieties of veggies to the standard recipe.
    Thanks for the info on calorie counting.

  342. Mushrooms can be included in vegetables?

  343. Hi….its my 3rd day..1 day i loose 1kg….2day 1/2 kg and 3rd day….not ….whts wrong with my diet plz…help….
