My Experiment with GM Diet


I was playing cricket the other day when one of my team mates told me about the GM Diet he took a couple of weeks back. I came back home and did a little research on GM Diet. With my wife and kid away in India, I thought it is the right time to do experiment with GM Diet as I have put on some weight in the last few months. Here is my experience following GM Diet for a week.
Day 1 – Fruits
I weighed 197 lb (89.5 kg) on the morning I started the GM Diet. On day one of the GM Diet, I am supposed to eat unlimited amount of fruits from the melon family. I survived the day eating one watermelon and cantaloupe each. By evening I started feeling slightly weak with a slight headache. Other than that the first day went very well.
Day 2 – Vegetables
I got up the next day morning and checked my weight. It was 195.5 lb. The very thought that I lost 1.5 lb in a day was an encouraging news to start eating just raw and baked vegetables with the hope of losing more. In the morning I ate a baked potato and after that I had uncooked cauliflower, spinach, cut beans and carrot as food on the second day. Of all the seven days this was the most difficult day to survive. I felt really tired and I thought I may not make it to day seven. But somehow I managed to hold on till the next day.
Day 3 – A mixture of fruits and vegetables
Lost another 1.5 lb on 3rd morning and I was weighing 194 lbs. I realized that the GM Diet plan was really working and that was enough to get me going. I had cauliflower, carrots, grapes, apple, water melon and cantaloupe on that day where I can have any vegetables and any fruits (except bananas) in unlimited quantity. This day was not as tough as day 2 but still have cravings for other food.
Day 4 – Banana and Milk
On 4th day morning I have already lost 5 pounds from where I started (192 lbs). From 4th day it was a smooth ride. Craving for food was gone totally and I never felt tired after day three. I was supposed to eat up to 8 bananas, must drink 3 cups of milk and eat “GM Wonder Soup”. I could manage to eat only 6 bananas and drank 3 cups of milk and ate "GM Wonder Soup". I was surprised how easy this day went by.
Day 5 – Beef and Tomatoes
On 5th day morning for my shock I realized that I gained two pounds. Later I realized talking to people who did GM Diet earlier that I should have been drinking the reduced fat milk instead of the whole milk on day four. Anyways I continued with the diet. It was a challenging day as I had a 20 over a side cricket match to play. I was allowed to eat up to two 10 oz of beef and must eat six tomatoes on that day. I took one 10 oz of beef and six tomatoes. Even though I played cricket and was running around the whole of morning I never felt tired the entire day. I think I was well into the GM Diet Plan. Till end of day four, I drank around 4 liters of water but from day five I increased it to around 6 to 7 liters of water.
Day 6 – Beef and Vegetables
On the morning of 6th day, I weighed 189.5 lbs – a reduction of 7.5 lbs (3.5 kgs) in 5 days! I had two 10 oz of beef and lots and lots of vegetable on this day apart from drinking plenty of water. I could see a noticeable difference in the way I look and overall I was feeling great that day. I was feeling happy that I did this GM Diet.
Day 7 – Brown Rice, Fruit Juice and Unlimited Vegetables
My weight remained the same on the morning of day seven i.e 189.5 lbs. On day 7 I had a cup of cooked brown rice, lots of pure fruit juice that does not contain added sugar and vegetables in the form of cauliflower, broccoli and carrot. Seventh day I even did not even feel that I am on a diet plan as it went like a normal day.
Day 8 - I got up in the morning and went directly to check my weight. I weighed 187 lbs or I lost exactly 10 pounds (4.5 kgs) in 7 days! Here is a graph of my weight loss over seven days.
To wind-up – if you are really serious about losing weight GM Diet is a “good start”. It helps you to clean your system by removing a part of the unwanted substances from your body. Talking to the people who have done GM diet earlier everyone was telling me that if you go back to the old eating habits after the GM diet, in no time you will gain back the weight. So key here is, once successfully done with GM diet, don’t sit back and relax but start doing exercise so that your body does not accumulate more unwanted stuff again. No Pain, No Gain, right?

I feel you have really highlighted the main benefits and highlights of the GM diet without any exaggeration at all, and this kind of realistic description of a diet plan is what one needs.

Great.very good guidlines those who are doing RnD.
Also I have a suggetion , those who are veg they can replace a cup of cooked brown rice with tomotto,beans,spinach,brokely,Cabbage mixed with it.I would strongly recommand this even for non-veg ppl.

What is GM Diet? Is it a commercial preparation or a kind of a recommended food style, please clarify?

Second thing I would like to suggest is that please do not be over ambitious to loose wt. Your target should be to loose wt about 3-4 Kg/month. If you loose too drastically, you may develop other metabolic complications, far more serious to tackle. So please be careful.

Lastly, addition of too much veg in a diet suddenly may cause diarrhoea or other bowel problems, especially in non-veg ppl. So watch it carefully. You may be advised to consult some dietician in the beginning.

Mahiya,
Good to know that you are doing GM diet. It is intended for 7 days only. If you want to repeat it, what I read was that you wait for few days (i.e. you eat normal food) and then start GM diet again. Best of luck with your GM diet.

I messed up the diet on day two, I at a tiny bit of beef, 2 chestnuts, and a fruit dessert thing, I was at a fundraising event and couldn't be rude, (though the dessert has no excuse) do I have to start it over?

I just finished my GM Diet yesterday. I lost 4 kgs. But maintaining after the diet program is a bit difficult, I suppose. Planning for one more round of this same diet after a week.

I did the GM diet earlier this year in July and lost 4.1kg in the 7 days. I am now doing the diet for the 2nd time (for cleansing), I'm on day 3 and the weight is coming off again as it did before. I am 5'1" and normally weigh around 57kg but had put on about 1kg. I live in the UK and tend to eat and east as the cold dark nights creep in! Good luck!

Nice article. I'm surprised no one had any issues with the beef. I do not eat beef.. Can I substitute Chicken or Lamb meat with the beef?
