GM Diet is an abbreviation for General Motors Diet. It consists of a 7-day meal plan. This diet plan promises a loss of around 7 kgs in a week. It focuses on losing weight by consuming specific foods each day for a week. It claims to cleanse your body and improve your digestion. Even though it promises such results, it is not a sustainable long-term weight loss strategy.
GM diet is divided into a 7-day plan in which each day consists of different components, as follows-
Day 1 – Fruit Diet
Day 2 – Vegetable Diet
Day 3 – Fruit and Vegetable Diet (except bananas and potatoes)
Day 4 – Bananas and Milk Diet
Day 5 – Meat Diet
Day 6 – Meat and Vegetable Diet
Day 7 – Fruit and Vegetable Juice Diet
It recommends consumption of ample water to promote proper digestion and prevent dehydration. It recommends around 2-3 glasses of water with each meal. It also adds a ‘Wonder Soup’ to its diet.
Even though it is appealing, it is a crash diet that might show some results in losing weight but is not supported by research. It is dangerously low in various nutrients. It can lead to muscle weakness, fatigue, headaches, and can even slow down your metabolic rate. It is not suitable for everyone. One must remember that if one is suffering from certain ailments, it might do more harm than good. The best way to lose weight is by incorporating healthy lifestyle and dietary habits in our daily lives.
