GM Diet Wonder Soup

GM Diet Wonder Soup

The recipe is pretty straight forward and very easy to make.

Wonder Soup Ingredients:

  • Onions – 6 large onions
  • Green Peppers – 2
  • Tomatoes – 3
  • Cabbage – 1
  • Celery – 1 bunch
  • Water – 22 oz of water

Directions:

  • Start off with the onions and green pepper. Cut up the onions and green pepper and lightly saute it with a few drops of olive oil till they turn a light brown.
  • Next up is the celery, tomatoes and cabbage. Chop them up and add everything to a large pot with water.
  • Bring it to a boil and slow cook it till everything is tender. You probably need to cook this for close to 60 min. Add salt, dried herbs or spices and pepper for seasoning.

That’s pretty much there is to it. The wonder soup can be eaten in unlimited quantities and is a real delight to eat. Anytime you find yourself hungry on any day of the GM Diet, the wonder soup is the way to go. Make sufficient quantities each day so that when hunger pangs hit you, you have something you can quickly warm up and eat.

The GM Diet wonder soup is really tasty as well, you will find yourself eating this even when you are not on a diet.

  2. im confused as to whether the soup can be consumed starting day 1 or not?

    • You an use as much of the soup as you want on all days except 1 and 4. Day one is your kick off day so it needs to be just fruit.

  3. do we need to consume those vegetable dishes without salt / seasoning?

  4. Can we subsitute the green pepper with something else as I really dislike green peppers.

  5. can i use enything else insted of greenpeppar

  6. On this soup I used two onions, one cabbage head, three large carrots, six celery stalks. two onions soup mixes, and four cups v-8 juice. I put in about four cups of water. I simmered this until the veggies were soft. Very good soup. This batch made 12 cups of soup.

  7. Can I substitute celery with another vegetable?

  8. i hate onions, celery, cabbage, and peppers…. can i substitute all of that or is it pretty pointless…

  9. is it necessary to take this soup..?
    I don’t really feel that hungry.

  10. I am on end of day four and till now I went for tweaked soup recipe that uses Spinach instead of cabbage.. is it fine?? can I continue with spinach??

  11. Can you have vinger?

  12. GM diet really works, I loved the recipe. Can I make some other veg soup?

  13. Hw much gap must be made if I wants to restart the gm diet after finishing 7 days diet
    Smwhr it is mentioned after 3 days n smwhr has written atleast after 2 weeks
    Kindly help its bit confusing

  14. I had chapaties, fruit(apple and orange) and tomatoes & cucmber on day 5th as brown rice was not available. Is this fine?

  15. But till forth day I have done good diet and it reflected on health as well.

  16. Dear Friends,

  34. I am starting the GM Diet today. I made my HUGE batch of soup yesterday. I didn’t think my pot would hold all of the vegetables! A coworker of mine and his wife have done the diet 2 weeks in a row. The first week he lost 12 lbs and she lost 9 lbs. They are in their second week now, so I am not sure of the progress this time. He gave me some tips on the soup recipe which made it delicious!
    1 14 oz can of unsalted tomato juice
    1 head of cabbage
    14 oz. water
    6 celery stalks
    2 whole onions
    2 packets on onion soup powder mix
    2 green peppers
    Salt and pepper to taste and simmer at least 1 hour to get vegetables tender.

    I put all of this in my food processor (slicer) and dumped it in a pot, put the soup mix over the vegetables and poured the juice and water over it. Great flavor and easy to make!

  49. Can anyone please tell me if I can use low calorie oil spray to sauté veggies?? And I hate tomatoes, specially when raw.. Can I make some kind of basic tomato soup for the fifth day?? And if celery can be substituted with carrot in the wonder soup, as celery is not available where I live?? Please help I am starting on the diet tomorrow…

    • Yes cook the tomatoes, assuming you are using only things on the approved list to make a soup, yes that is fine. Carrots are OK, never ever use cooking spray, so bad for you, try organic coconut oil, use some to saute if you need.

  50. I have added too,much of olive oil to saute my onions, is that okay or,I need to redo everything,..

  51. I’m on my second day now . This is the first time im trying gm diet. . But I feel lik fainting n very tired. . I cant do light exercise also.. but it is mentioned to do exercise for one hour. . Wat to do?? Most of the times I feel sleepy si slept off in t afternoon. . Can I sleep during mid day? And is it compulsory to do exercises? ?

    • When you cut caffeine, sugar, wheats and such, you will feel detoxy so to speak for a few days.Hang in there. Rest if you need to. Exercise, look into burst or HIT training, fast, better for the body, takes less time and much more effective.

  52. Is exercise compulsory during this diet? I mean im goin to gym.. but I feel very tired .. I can’t walk properly too.

  53. Can I know what is HIT training?

  54. After finishing this cycle wen can I start the next round? ? I mean how much gap should be taken for the next round..
    And after completing this round how to follow my diet in order to not regain my weight again? ?

    • Hello
      Your soup recipe is OK and a chicken cube is OK. I will be changing that recipe soon, I cannot stand processed foods and the Knorrs package must come out. Natural always better. But yes a cube is fine. Corn just a little is OK. Don;t over drink water either 8 glasses may be enough. Only eat eggs when you see meat called for in the plan, you cannot add eggs when you like. Hope that helps :)

  67. Hi Author ,

    Many thanks for yr reply but I saw yr answer once my 5th day is over. Throughly I m feeling healthy and lighter but I felt Kidney ligther pains on both sides I think its bcz of Lots of urine ( I m already passing lots of urine since my childhood) as I m drinking 8-10 glass water so Might be its becz of water but Ever one can see difference in me. My weight scale coming tmrw so I will be able to check my weight tmrw I tried GM diet again to make it sucessfull and to see where I commit mistake:):)

    I didnt drink soup today and didnt add egg or corn in my diet.

    Waiting for your reply

    Thanks

    • On the water, don’t over drink it, drink as thirsty, maybe for you 6 glasses is OK. Too much water can actually be hard on your kidneys. On the changes. When a meal calls for meat, you can sub in another protein like eggs, chicken or fish. But no you cannot just have an egg when you like.

  68. Hi,
    I got up to read yr reply I didnt take Egg any day. Anyway thanks for your reply. I have to take water when I m thirsty. If 6 glass are OK then I will take 6 glasses. Protein meat means total 300 grams and we cant add even fruit omggggggggggggg :(:(

  69. Hi All,

  71. Hi i really hate the taste of tomato especially raw. Is there a way to make the tomatoes more enjoyable for me on day 5? Also, can I eat sautéed tofu instead of beef?

  72. Do stewed or roasted tomato with spices. yes on tofu although to me there is nothing healthy about it at all, so processed and not a complete protein. Proceed at your own risk.

  73. Hi,,want to start frm tom,m Indian 156cm ht n 69 kg,,want to reduce,, wil kp u posted,thnks

    Please can some one help me with its substitute…
    Today it’s day one… So I hope yo get solution before day 5.

  75. Checkout the Indian or Vegetarian version in the footer below this. Legumes, keep in mind when replacing meat each time you must have fat with it. Meaning meat has fat, your replacement should have some, so if you did legumes and a teaspoon or 2 of olive oil.

  76. Hi,

  88. Thanks! How much exercise would you recommend a day? Also can I eat as much fruit on day 1 as I like? And finally I don’t like veg with my potato on day 2 can I have marrow fat peas? Thanks

  89. Thank you for your help! I love fruit so I eat loads! Day 1 today I had lentil soup thinking its good but il start day 1 tmrw with loads of fruit! Thank again

  90. I thought proteins not allowed on day 1! Just fruit

  91. I can’t have this soup at all even if I mix the spices and stuff! I just don’t like veg and hate cabbage! I can only eat homemade lentil or chicken soup but we can’t have that because of protein! Il have to diet without soup LOL

  94. can i eat dates any day during diet?

  95. Hi,

    I have a gastric problem and i have started the GM diet today. But because of gastric problem i got vommited what ever the fruits i had in the evening.

    I want to reduce my weight. Please help

    • Since we are not doctors we cannot offer medical advice. I will say though, if you have gastric/digestive issues, your food should be cooked, raw foods are very tough on digestion. My wife has issues, so she does not do anything raw really right now until she heals her guts.

  96. On day 1 can we eat as much fruit as we want or does it have to be a certain amount! I usually eat apples or watermelon alot!

    • normal off diet, stick with 2 to 3 servings of fruit. Day 1, basically as much as you like, just stop before you get too full, never overeat :)

  97. Thank you

  98. Hey! Can anyone pleeaaaasseee help me.. Im on the 3rd day nd i havent lost a pound!

  99. By d end of last month I read the article of gm diet and I decided to go forth for it. On my first attempt I lost 4kgs in a span of just five days, however, I was interrupted by a mandatory cause n I had to go out of station and as such I couldn’t continue with the diet. So after a gap of a week I have started d diet again and m on the second day now, but m confused if starting it again dis early might hamper my health, if not, will d diet work on me as effectively as the last time???

    • I am sorry about your suffering. Heath issue can be tough to over come.

      If you are eating chapati you have 100% ruined this diet, Those are empty carbs/calories and are junk to your body. they give you false energy, cause weight gain, etc. Sorry. I can’t help you further if you’re eating bread.

  106. Can i stop the diet at day 4 ? I only need to lose 3kg and im 16 . Im a little concerned about the yoyo effects. Thanks

  108. HI , Im on day 1 and i ve taken 2 dates palm … Does dates add to carbs ? or does it fall into right category of fruits.. Thanks in advance

  118. Today is my 3th day… but i had knorr soup on day 2 since i didn’t find the receipe of wonder soup…. anyways thank u so much for ur blog.. am preparing the wonder soup today…..
    I just wanted to know if i can substitude tomatoes for something else on day 5… cause i can’t take raw tomatoes at all..

    • you can cook the tomato or pick another veg. beware of canned soups. MSG, loads of bad oils and preservatives, can really hinder weight loss. FYI for the future :)

  119. Can i use baby corn instead of celery? Bby corn is considered to be a non starch vegetable? Tnxs

  120. In the wonder soup, can i use chicken breast broth instead of water? Tnxs

    Water.

    Is that ok? I didn’t add tomatoes or celery is that ok?!

  127. Hi..
    Today is my 1st day of GM diet.
    I just want to know whether I can change to Choc Milk or Strawberry milk instead of pure milk on day 4?

    thanks :)

    • Hello.
      No, they will be loaded with sugar, not to mention chemicals, fake colors and so on. Unless you want to gain weight you have to not drink stuff like that. You can do unsweetened almond milk if you like. sorry. Good luck though :)

  128. Hi day 4 lost 3kg feeling good, just made soup without cabbage , now instead of the milk can I have a low carb protein drink instead of milk, also on rice day can I have instead of the rice, slim rice has 10calories a packet I intend to do this for another week, really worried about gaining the weight back, even though I have lost don’t seem to be losing much in inches

  129. Hi Author,

    Today is my 3rd of GM diet plan. I am worry about 5th day plan. I don’t eat any meat, fish and eggs. Would you please suggest me. What food will I take instead of chicken or fish or eggs soup?

    Would you please tell me any other soup instead of taking wonder soup. I hate cabbage.

    -Saritha

  130. Hi Author,

    Would you please let me know the fish soup for day 4. I don’t eat beef and chicken.

    -Krishna

    • best to wait at least 2 week. I can tell you the worst thing for your knee issues will be gluten (chapati) and sugar. You should not be eating bread on this program.

  133. Hi Author

    I have started this GM diet today and i hope i will stick to it, but have a question. Can i lose 20-25 kg of weight by repeating this diet ? Does this plan affects to the skin as we lose weight fast? I have read the whole comments of people but have not found my answer, so i thought of asking here.

    Thanks in advance
    ~Shweta

    • Hello :)
      You need at least a 2 week break in between each set. However you can still go gluten and sugar free, almost eating similar to day 6 in between that time. If anything cutting processed foods, sugar and wheat will make your skin a ton better.

      • Hie and thanks for your reply :)
        Please review this once.

        Day 1
        BF – 2 apples
        Lunch – bowl of papaya
        Dinner – 1 Apple
        And in between 2 times i had wonder soup and almost 8 glass of water.

        Day 2
        BF – Boiled potatoes, boiled cauliflower and added tomato also in that
        Lunch – Same in lunch as breakfast
        Dinner – I will have some raw vegetables and salads with sprinkled salt on it
        8 glass of water.

        Just tell me am i doing right or followed something wrong. And as i added tomatoes, ginger, onion in wonder soup was that okay?

        I hope you will be replying soon :)
        Thanks again

        • salt, spices, herbs and peppers are all OK to season your food. Day 1 seems a little skimpy. Keep in mind less is not better.
          the potato day 2 needed fat like ghee or butter. Yes the soup sounds fine. All looks good so far :)

          • ohh oki happy to hear that :) how much ghee i can have this day? BTW i love ghee n all this stuff ;)
            * Is there any limit for potatoes for this day?
            And very important question ;)
            *can i lose 20-25 kg with repeating this diet?

            • yes only in the morning but it can be a large one.
              possibly, folks do. The ones that do the best is when they cut sugar and gluten in between plans.

  134. Are chick peaks allowed to manage the hunger ?????
    I’m on Diet Plan : Day 2.

    Vinod. Mumbai.

  135. I am on day 2 hoping great result i am going good with my gm diet plan thank u for such great plan will post my result soon

  136. Hi,

    I am on day 4 today. I guess i have lost weight, but i am scared to check my wait. I will wait till 7 days and check at the end.. I have few question. Would be of great if you can help me with these :)

    1. On day 5, can i cook rice with smashed tomatoes, salt and chilli powder, to make it taste like tomato rice? Or do I need to eat plain rice only?

    2. I make the soup following way. Is this ok for the diet?
    cabbage, beans, capsicum and 1or2 baby corn, water, salt and pepper — Boil all these together for 3-4 mins.

    3. Can i eat dal with rice on day 5, 6 and 7.

    4. Is adding tamarind to any dishes during the diet good or bad?

    5. Is very small amount of jaggery to the dishes during diet good or bad?

    Sorry for the long list of questions. Would appreciate if you can help me with these questions soon, as i have to plan my day 5 diet depending on your reply.

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    • I used to never check my weight until after the 7th day.
      1) Nope, add spices however you want and enjoy. When you replace meat, you need a little fat. Meat has fat naturally, so should your dish.
      2) No beans!!!!! Why are you adding beans to the soup? Beans are not a vegetable. Beans have loads of carbs, and vegetables have a trace amount. Plus beans have protein. Beans are OK as a meat replacement day 5 and 6, but then you would not need rice. This is a huge mistake and will mess up the program.

      Beans are and can be healthy, but you cannot change the program.

      No baby corn, they are not OK. Where did you get this recipe? Please read the Wonder Soup recipe….

      3) Dal, yes but you need to reduce the rice you eat.

      4) NO! It is OK after the program.

      5) No, unless you want to gain weight. It’ sugar, giving it a fancy name does not change the fact that it’s sugar.

      I truly suggest you re-read this program and try and follow it more closely. Sorry….

  137. Thank you for the response. By bean i meant green beans (string beans). Is that also a problem?
    I thought that is a healthy vegetable :(

  138. Oh thank you.. Thats a great relief. I have had about 4-5 babycorn till now. Hope that will not have any adverse effect on the program (fingers crossed).

    Today is my 5th day of diet. I am planning to have rice for breakfast and lunch. And wonder soup for dinner.
    Will let know the result on monday… :)

    • Corn is technically a grain, it’s nutrient dead, a big GMO product so not recommended. However you should be fine. Keep on going :) Make sure that rice has fat, meat does, so the replacement should.

  139. Hi,
    I am on my 3rd day but hav lost only 700grms. I am following the diet well expect that i added sone peas to d soup by mistake. Is it ok losing so lil wght or do i have to curb on something for better results?
    I also want to ask if I can add sugar to the banana shake orelse sugarfree sweetner?
    kindly reply.
    Thanks.

    • Well if you want to gain weight, then I would not add sugar or a fake sweetener. You can have stevia if you need. What did you eat and drink day 2? keep going, let’s see what happens after day 4…

  140. Hi I have few doubts..Instead of beef can I substitute with chicken on day 5? And also I dont get brown rice.Can I have normal white rice instead of brown rice.
    if its indian version you have mentioned cottage cheese, is that normal paneer which we get in shops?And there is no soya curd in my place.Is normal cow/buffalo curd is fine.
    please advice.

    • Another meat is the best way to go when replacing beef. So yes the chicken is great.White is better to many anyway. So yes on white. No, you cannot buy paneer in shops. You have no clue what oils they use, are they using MSG, sugar, etc. Sure buffalo curd is fine.

      • Thank you so much for your reply.I will avoid paneer then. I will get back to you if I have any doubt. Hoping to loose my weight after my diet.Will update u how I feel after diet.Thank you once again dear author.

        • please do, I always look forward to hearing how folks do. I never say things here to be hard, it’s just the truth when it comes to eating out, etc…

          • Hi again sorry to bother you.I am on my day 4 plan nd I feel light nd feeling good.I have below doubts.
            1) For day 5.Instead of raw tomatoes can I make them into pieces nd cook with chicken nd have.I dont tak beef.So as you said I prefer chicken.I prefer to saute onion tomatoes garlic in litle olive oil and add salt pepper cumin jeera spices nd add chicken piece nd cook.Then when its tender will have them.Can I also add chillies or chilli powder?I love to add.

            2)In my day 3 I had melon nd papaya for breakfast nd veg soup for lunch then again melon papaya for dinner.There was bandh in my place nd I could not get other vegetables nd fruits for my day3.Was that fine for my day 3 or did I do any mistake?

            Regarding water I am having 2liters.Since its raining here I am not able to drink more.I tried drinking nd I feel like puking.I do not get what to do on this.

            Please suggest me

            • Never a bother.
              1) You cook the tomato if you like. Chicken is great, and how you mentioned cooking is fine. Chili’s in any form are great.
              2) DO the best you can, you are fine like that.

              NEVER over drink water and never under do it. So if you feel full on water stop :)

          • Thank you tonns..

  141. I have one more doubt.Can I sleep after breakfast or lunch? If No then how much time gap should ne there between food and sleep?

  142. This is second day of my GM diet…first day i had fruits and second day I m completely on vegetables…I have added little red chilli powder and a pinch of salt in my wonder soup and also very less amount of sprouts…is that fine???will it affect my weight loss plan??

    Second doubt- I usually walk for 3kms in morning follwed by 20mins of yoga and 15 mins of aerobics and around 2kms in the evening(just started yesterday) .Is this fine for GM diet plan???
    Please reply
    Thanks in advance

    • Salt, pepper and spices are fine. The only issue with salt if you eat to much is you might retain some water weight. Sprouts should only be used in moderation but are post plan great to have. Don’t tear down your muscles for the first few days ,you have no protein to rebuild. Good luck :)

  143. This GM diet plan is very good I done two times
    And I have reduced 12kg…I have given 5 days gap
    For 2nd diet plan…I was 110kg after 2 diet now its 98kg thanks to GM diet..
    My advice is pls do exercise after diet plan complets.

  144. Hi can you please tell me Can I add little olive oil nd spices to vegetables like brocoli letuce carrot cucumber nd microwave it for 10 mns nd have for day2.I cant have raw or boiled vegetables.
    kindly advice

    • Cooking is great, you really should have no oil unless we say, a very tiny bit will be OK. However if you microwave your food, you have 100% killed any nutrients it may have. Please stop killing your food :) My house came with a microwave, I store spices in it…

      • Haa haa storing spices is great but I dint know microwave is bad.OMG yesterday was my day2.I add a little olive oil nd microwave nd had for dinner alone..breakfast i had potato then lunch soup nd my dinmer was the microwave veggies. my 2nd day was a mistake is it.How should I compensate.pls say me.Im worried now.Nd thank you for reply.

        • :)
          Study it, how is irradiating your food good though? Up to you, trust me when i say this, science easily backs it up, if you want a sure fire way to 100% ruin everything you eat, the microwave will do it. Keep rolling, all should be OK …

          • I trust what you said.but do I have to start again from day1 or can I just continue since its my day3 today..im worried I really want to lose my weight dear author. Please tell me.

          • Thank you thank you.I wil update you on my diet and weight loss.Feeling good after your msg.

            • Hi author sorry by mistake instead of replying under my name.I have sent the msg in another lady(Akila’s) msg.I am sorry.My 7days completed nd my friend is still on her diet.I lost only 1.5kg.Is that normal or is it very less kg loss?

            • Hello
              1.5kg is actually really good. Keep in mind there are variables that can cause the weight to be less at times: Examples would be someone cheats a little, under lying health issues like thyroid problems and cortisol issues. Also ladies sometimes struggle more due to their hormones and so on. Also keep in mind weight loss is progressive, this diet should also change your mindset about food.

            • Oh god thank you.I thought I did some mistak..but I did not cheat food. To be very frank this diet varies day by day so it was easy to follow.I will see if I canfollow the diet again after a week.Thank you dear.

            • you can try a week, 2 is better, look at the plan I sent over and see if you could do that 2 week prior to this one again. You did awesome to me :)

  145. Hurray I finished my 7days.I feel realy very good.But I doubt of my weught loss.I have lost only less than 2kgs.Why is that? Day1 I had bf-melon nd apple in a bowl.Lunch-Papaya nd watermelon, Dinner-Papaya nd melon. Eveng-little pomegranate.

    • Nd also I did not do any exercise in these days.I was just doing house hold work of cleaning stuffs.Please help me to lose weight more.Nd tell me what mistake I have done. Thank you.

    • The loss is great first of all, congrats. I have mentioned just in another post weight loss may vary for reasons such as hormones (ladies), underlying health issues like thyroid issues or high cortisol levels. Just to name a couple. Your diet looks good to me except day 6. Why so little food? You could have had 3 meals and a snack, each needed protein. But that is it, looks perfect to me…

      • Hee hee ok great I was thinking that I might loss upto 5kgs haa haa lol.Thank you for reply yeah I have thyroid problem nd its in control due to medicine in empty stomach daily.Heee her day6 ther was shortage of chicken since that was fasting day I had to hide n eat nonveg if not mom would jump on me.lol..Ur diet plan was not that tough to follow but just had a little carving to eat other food stuffs but I controlled.I will see if I can follow the diet again..Can you please tell me what to do post gm diet.I want to only reduce more weight.Once again u r do helpful in clearing doubts nd suggesting things. Thank you again.

        • Well, your thyroid issue is not technically controlled by medicine. Sure it helps depending on what you have. But if you have a thyroid issue you should NEVER eat gluten/wheat. I found out I had a thyroid issue although it’s early on and I am actually healing already thanks to my functional healthcare person. But look at a test I did. Anything in red means I have a severe auto immune reaction to it. Why? All of those foods have their own kind of gluten, a genius guy found out it mimics the protein molecule found in wheat and reacts the same with your thyroid. I cannot have these foods until I heal and retest. Just because you are on meds, has nothing to do with whether you can eat foods that react with your thyroid. Here is my test: http://thyroidboards.com/index.html/_/other-health/sample-array-4-%E2%80%93-gluten-associated-cross-reacti-r22

          I also recommend you spend some time with this guy on his site. To me he is the top thyroid guy by far – Dr. Kharrazian. http://thyroidbook.com/

          Please be careful, your thyroid issue means you have to make a lifestyle change.

          • OMG thank you so much..I will take care nd I never thought it so serious.But very concern of you.Thank you so much I will go through the site you have sent.According to the test oats, cofee, tapioca, corn, milk is good to takr when I have thyroid right? Did I get that correct? Can you please say me wjat is gluten free food or whch food contains gluten then I eill avoid those.After your msg I got littke nervous thinking about thyroid issue nd im assisted eith pcos too..nd taking medication for both..I shoukd change my lifestyle I understood author.

            • Well it’s all new science. What was happening was people with thyroid issues go gluten free. Yet they eat all of this junk gluten food. Rice for example has gluten, just a different type. This PHD doctor – scientist guy realized his patients were not healing after cutting wheat type gluten. If you cannot do the test, you do what;s called an elimination diet, basically you go do to meat/legumes (if you are vegetarian) and veg. Do that 30 days and then intro the foods 1 at a time every 14 days or so. I had to eat these foods 3 times a week for 3 weeks to do the test and I was literally miserable. Hope it all goes well, get to know Dr. K… He is the man on this topic.

            • Oh no, you cannot have those foods if you have thyroid issues possibly. Likely you cannot but you have to test. Any food in red I CANNOT have. Scary right, but at least I know. My main carbs are plantains, plantian flour, bananas and other fruit.

            • http://www.glutenfreeliving.com/nutrition/the-basic-diet/
              I found the link for gluten free foods.I wil follow this. You are really very helpful nd made me to understand that I should have a complete change in my food style nd I will surely do that.

            • FYI, this is a horrible article, so mainstream and will not help you 1 bit. Their list is outdated, common and has nothing to do with good health. Sorry. Stick with DR. K…

            • Its really scary author..When I saw the food list of gluten free diet I understood that I should have a complete change in my food im taking..I will really do that because im really suffering a lot with this thyroid harmonal issues. I will get to kno the Dr.Kharrazian as you said.This is my first diet plan first intro to blogs nd comments nd im just so thankful that you made me feel so comfortable nd u r very helpful. I just don’t kno how to thank you.I wish I could invite you home nd give a big treat but gluten free haahaaa lol

            • LOL – Trust me I have learned to do some awesome thing with plantain flour actually! I had no choice :)

***Before asking your question, please understand that we are only here to help and these are our opinions. Also make sure you read and understand the entire diet before doing it. And also see a doctor if you feel you need approval to do so. If you plan to exercise during the diet, you cannot do heavy weights and heavy workouts (We state this on the Exercise page), you need to have the correct amount of protein. The first 4 days of this diet do not have protein, so your exercise you be very light. You cannot tear muscle down without something to build it up. Thanks You
