The GM Diet first came to our attention when we googled how to lose the most amount of weight in 10 days. Now, before we share the details about this diet plan, 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. In other words, if you want to boost your confidence and trim up quickly, this will set things in motion.
The first time we tried it we lost 9 kilos! This plan is designed to be used for one week at a time and not prolonged use. This will change your body shape and iron you out. You definitely will notice a big difference in your appearance. It is important that you never do it for more than one week at a time.
You must always have a break in between. You should always consult your Doctor or Dietician for the best possible advice. The above infographic from Missy Red is simply the Bloggers interpretation of the diet.
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 the optimal results are melon and watermelon. It’s important to drink lots of water. You can also blitz up some fruit in your blender and carry with you in a thermos. It’s also easily digestible in this form.
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. Fruits and veggies can be combined in a blender if you prefer.
Day # 4 – Today 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 are 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 but the best way to consume is in smoothie form.
How To Make GM Diet Banana Smoothie
- Milk: 250ml (1 cup)
- Banana: 1 large size or 2 small size (cut into small pieces for easy blending)
- Ice cubes: 4 (optional)
- Sugar or Sweetener: Should be avoided at any cost
The Banana Smoothie is delicious and we know you will love it. We found it to be very filling and enjoy it to this day.
We thought we would also share the infographic from Spa Breaks that shows you the health benefits that bananas contain like they are great for eyesight and make you happy too!
Day # 5 – Another delicious day, with lean hamburger patties and tomatoes. You will need to ramp up your water intake to rid your body of the uric acid. You will need 2 10-ounce portions of lean meat or hamburger with six whole tomatoes. Increase your water intake by at least a quarter.
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.
