The GM Diet, otherwise known as The General Motors Diet Plan, first came to our attention some time ago. We googled how to lose the most amount of weight in 10 days and up it popped in the search results.
Now, before we share the details about this diet plan, please note. This is not designed to be a sustainable long term solution for weight loss. It is, however, a quick fix that is an ideal kick start to a new way of life.
General Motors Diet Plan – 7 Days
via Missy Red
The first time we tried this meal plan we lost 7 kilos. Whilst a lot of the weight is bloat and fluid, there was a big change in appearance
This plan is designed to be used for one week at a time, not prolonged use.
It will change your body shape and you will notice a big difference in your appearance. It is important that you never do this diet for more than one week at a time. This infographic from Missy Red is her interpretation.
You must always have a break in between. We want to stress that this diet should only be used for motivation.
In other words, if you want to boost your confidence and trim up quickly, this will set things in motion.
It’s perfect for those that need to lose weight quickly for surgery or a special occasion. It’s important to remember however, only lifestyle and dietary changes will have long term effects.
You should always consult your Doctor or Dietician before embarking on such diets and for the best possible advice.

We have included this helpful infographic from 7 Day GM Diet and they have an excellent website filled with all the relevant details of this meal plan. You can visit any time for great advice. In a nutshell the GM 7-Day Meal Plan is as follows:
GM Diet 7-Day Meal Plan
Day # 1 –Consume only fruits throughout the day. You can eat all fruit other than bananas. The best choices that will have optimal results are melon and watermelon.
It’s important to drink lots of water as this will flush your body. You can also blitz up some fruit in your blender. Pop it in a thermos and you are good to go!
Day # 2 – Eat all the raw or cooked vegetables you like. You may start your day with a baked potato for breakfast with oil or butter and some cracked pepper.
You can enjoy all your vegetables as a salad and use white or wine vinegar, lemon, and herbs for flavoring. Don’t use salad dressing.
Day # 3 – Combine both fruits and vegetables in any amount. You will not have bananas or potatoes on this day of the diet. Fruits and veggies can be combined in a blender if you prefer.
Day # 4 – On this day, it’s all about Milk and Bananas and this is one of our favorites. The Banana Smoothie is heavenly! Eat as many as 8 bananas and drink at least 3 glasses of any kind of unsweetened milk.
The combination of the potassium in the bananas and the calcium in the milk is what makes this work.
You can also have the GM Power Soup on this day. It is unlikely you will get through the 8 bananas. The easiest way is to consume is in smoothie form.
GM Diet Plan Days 5-7
Day # 5 – Another delicious day, with lean hamburger patties and tomatoes. It’s important to ramp up your water intake by at least a quarter. This will rid your body of the uric acid.
You will need 2 10-ounce portions of lean meat or hamburger and six whole tomatoes.
Day # 6 – On this day, you can consume as much high, lean protein and vegetables as you like.
Day # 7 – The last day consists of eating all the veggies, fruit juices and brown rice that you like. Do not have meat. Make sure fruit juice is not from concentrate, or have added sugar of any description. It’s preferable to blend fresh fruit for your juice.
There is no doubt that the weight melts off. As we have said previously we have been on this plan several times and always with exceptional results.
Good luck and remember, prior to making any drastic dietary changes, consult your Doctor or Nutritionist.
