How Does The GM Diet Work?

The GM diet, also known as the General Motors diet, is a 7-day eating plan that offers significant weight loss results. Unlike other diets which require intake of supplements that aid in losing weight, this diet relies mainly on natural produce. The main objectives of the GM diet are to get rid of the excess pounds and at the same time alter the individual’s eating habits towards a more organic lifestyle.

How does the GM diet work? A lot of people remain to be curious with the diet plan’s effects. This is because all it requires is to follow the prescribed foods for each day of the week. Dieters are not required to undergo exercise or to supplement their diet with nutritious non-food items. Some experts also find the diet to a mere weight loss fad that doesn’t produce long-term satisfying effects.

Detoxification

In contrast to what many people say, the GM diet is an effective way to start detoxification. Indeed individuals are deprived of eating fat, unhealthy proteins and carbohydrates during the first few days of the week. But at the same time their body systems are cleansed and the toxins that keep them tired, stressed and overweight are flushed away. Followers of the GM diet are inclined to drink up to 2 liters of water each day, which is sufficient to digest all the food they have consumed and wash away all the unwanted entities inside their system.

Regular detoxification aids in faster digestion, regular bowel movement and urination, and eventual weight loss.

Faster Digestion

GM diet fosters digestion in two significant ways. First is through the foods consumed each day of the diet week. Individuals are subject to consume only high fiber foods such as fruits and vegetables that are low in sugar. These meals alone already speed up digestion as they are easily absorbed by the stomach.

Digestion is also sped up with significant water intake. Foods that are rich in fiber still need water for them to be dissolved into nutrients. With regular water intake, the overall digestion process is maximized. In turn individuals get to use all the nutrients they have consumed and at the same time utilize their reserved energies through by means of metabolism.

Regular Bowel Movement

One of the reasons why people tend to be overweight is the unnecessary wastes trapped inside the body. These include elements that have not been able to be digested and had to be removed from the system through defecation. Due to the high fiber foods and consistent water intake in the GM diet, the solid entities in the digestive system are flushed away from the body in a regular manner. Bowel problems such as constipation and LBM are thus avoided.

Overall

The above mentioned processes all contribute to faster weight loss effects. Through the GM diet, individuals not only get to lose weight; they also find the way towards a healthier and cleaner lifestyle. In time, those who follow the diet also get rid of their poor eating habits and find ways to enjoy life in a more natural manner.

  13. HI..

  14. I started 6-feb-2014. almost completed 6 days, but didn’t get any weight loss.

    Before starting my weight 76 now also the same

    • have any cheats? did you follow it 100%? can you tell me how you ate each day? how many bananas on day 4? Do you eat any grains at all?

  15. Hi. I started this diet on 17 Feb 2014. Today, on 22 Feb Morning (Day 6), I have lost exactly 3.2 kilos. Should I expect a total loss of 5 kilos plus this week. I plan to repeat next week. Should I start from Day 1 or repeat day 3 thrice? I have been exercising every day. 10 km on the elliptical bike plus 20 mins Yoga.

    Please advice

    • It can vary per person, also most people tend to not follow the diet correctly. So make sure you stick to it 100%. I am more into HIT/Burst training, so it’s tough for me to comment on long exercise like that.

  16. Hi. Lost 4 kilos exactly in one week. Bit disappointed as I was expecting to drop 6. Starting an intermediate level weight training program from today.
    My original question to the administrator remains– I plan to repeat this week. Should I start from Day 1 or repeat day 3 thrice then continue the schedule?

  17. I’m on day 5 I’m down almost 8 lbs . Don’t really like the soup is it a must ?

  18. i am 19year old and 87kgs 5’9feet , can it help me to reduce 5kg in a week

  19. I don’t want to take the time to make the soup. Is it absolutely necessary? I saw that someone stopped at day 5, but I don’t want to eat it at all, but I will if it helps me lose more.

  20. I’m on day4 and craving food really badly.
    one question though, I am afraid that the pounds we are losing is the water weight, not the fat. any words on this thought?

    • eat the soup if you need food, no, it’s not just water weight, trust me on that. This diet should teach you to stick to real foods, run from processed foods, etc,

  21. Is there any restriction for consumption of tea / coffee during diat?
