  30. Hey .. Can i drink the soups available in market .. I mean packed ones .. ?
    Instead of wonder soup ..

    • Well assuming they are pure, no bad oils, no processed ingredients, no msg type stuff, no sugars. It’s not likely.

  31. I am on my Day2, and had 1 boiled potato in morning, and had raw salad with corn, green pepper, broccoli, lettuce, carrot in afternoon. can I have saute of corns+green pepper+onion+tomato+ some salt in olive oil in dinner time?

  32. Oh! I had lots of corn today in my day 2. 🙁

    • yah, if you look at that recipe, it’s only a 1/2 cup, I will change it to 1/4.

      Corn, major issues.
      1) technically a grain
      2) so genetically modified
      3) Nutrient dead, what benefits does it really have?
      4) Most people don’t realize they are either allergic or sensitive to it.

      Try and not do any more, you will be OK 🙂

  33. Hey..cn I have sprouts roasted with little oil?
    N cn u give me a- alternative to sugar in milk..n I’m in day 3..
    Will help me a lot if u reply:)


  35. yes, you need some fat with that rice though, meat has fat, so should the rice, some curd, butter or olive oil could work.

  36. Hii author,
    I am on day 3 of hm diet and i am following it as strictly given in the diet chart but today i had 2 chappatis(roti) with a lil of potatoes…hope this doesnt affect my diet…would appreciate ur reply.

    • It likely will, wheat (gliuten) basically is trash to your body. and we say not potato day 3. Sorry. If you want to lose weight cut gluten and sugar. If you continue eating bread, you will gain weight.

  37. I m on day 2 , you have said 8 to 10 glasses of water, can I have more intake of water like 4 Ltrs of water or no ?

  38. Quinoa great, legumes/lentils great, Tofu I would never recommend (processed beyond anything good), yogurt yes can work. The legumes and quinoa need some fat like ghee. Yogurt already has it. You can take another 1 or 2. Beets and carrots are slightly higher in carbs than normal veg. Just do without during the 7 day plan, eat away after.

  39. I am on my second day of GM diet plan. Can I eat corn? If yes what can be the quantity ?

  40. Hi, Can we have mushroom subzi on the 2nd day of GM diet?

  41. Also, can we have lassi with banana instead of milk?

  42. Hi
    1)can I eat sprout moong in day 1,2,3 and 4?
    2)can I eat buttermilk in day 1,2,3,4? (which made from 1% milk with lot of water)
    3)can I drink plain fat free milk all 7 days? how much ?
    4)can I drink moong dal water(I boil moong with water and drink only watery part with some spice in it)

    thank you

  43. Can we have roasted chick peas on day 5..I just had a hand full of chickpeas roasted with a grapefruit.. Can’t have meat in the morning 🙁

    • no, not technically. Sorry. You were supposed to eat meat (or vegetarian sub) and tomato. So not sure where you got grapefruit. Keep rolling though all should be OK 🙂

  44. Hey
    can I hve sprouts on my scnd day and 3 day of my gm diet..
    pls rply asap
    tnx 🙂

  45. Can we eat boiled corn ..on day one i just lobe it so much

    • I hate that it;s in this recipe. So no if you want to get your health back. It’s a common allergen and not at all technically a vegetable. However most folks don;t care and will eat it anyway so it’s up to you. 🙂

  46. I am entering Day 2 Tomorrow:
    Can I boil the vegetables and eat ?
    I am planning for 1-1!/2 Potato boiled and smashed with some Butter and lil Salt and Pepper to Taste for Breakfast
    Lunch – A salad with Tomato, Cucumber, Lettuce, Onions, Jalapeno, Olives & Coriander leaves with some curd (lil to taste), some pepper & salt
    Dinner – Boiled vegetables – Carrot and Beans Combination
    Please Suggest

    • Yes boiling veg is fine. Also spice as you like.

      NO CURD! Please do not take liberties as you like with this plan,, It does not work that way.

      Why beans? So basically you want to eat carrots and beans for dinner, hence pure carbs? You do know beans are not a vegetable and are nutritionally 100% different. You get only veg, low to no carb veg and a little fruit.

  47. Can i do G M diet for the full month is there any side effect of this

  48. Hi…
    Please suggest me.. can i have roasted paneer in gm diet. also let me know, vegetables should be steamed oil less or i can have vegetables prepared in olive oil with indian spices.

  49. I add salt to vegetable on day 2,5,6 n 7..please advice

  50. hey, i had 7-8 kernels of almonds with some raisins on day 2, will it affect my diet?

    • sure it can, if you have weight issues, snacking like that is not good. however hopefully in this case you will be ok.

  51. Hi,

    On my second round on GM diet in last 2 months. Working like wonders for me. Lost 3.5 kg in the last round and already lost 2kg for current session on day 4.

    Have a questionnaire, plz mark yes or no (I know it’s too lengthy, sorry for that)
    1. 1 full mango, allowed or not
    2. I like stir fried veggies so using half a teaspoon of olive oil. Is it good
    3. Sprinkling some soya sauce with no msg on veggies.
    4. For day 5 onwards, can I stir fry paneer (Indian cottage cheese) coated with yoghurt and spices in lil olive oil. Is it ok
    5. Can I have egg for day 5 onwards.
    6. Soya chunks are allowed or not.

    We make rotis using rice flour so will that be beneficial for day 5 or not.

    Thanks 🙂

    • nice it’s working 🙂

  53. I am entering day 5th plan tomorrow. For last two days I am having constant headache. Is that OK.
