Testing GM Diet Day 7 – Indian Vegetarian Version

GM diet day 7 is the last day of GM diet. I ate veg soup instead of brown rice. Body does seem to have lost weight but not a great deal of fat though.

After completing GM diet Day 6 successfully, here I am sharing my Day 7 with you.

The most important thing that I stand to gain from this experiment is the self confidence to keep my resolutions.
No matter if I lose the target weight or not, the diet process has certainly improved my confidence over myself.

Good news: I got a compliment from my mother whom I saw after a week (She is in India and I am in USA currently) and she did had no clue that I am on GM Diet at all. She immediately said that I have lost weight from my face!!
Hurray…seems like all the effort has paid off.
It is a different feeling when you get to hear from people whom you know will be genuine and true to you apart from the weighing scale!

I did not opt for brown rice as we did not have them in stock.
Instead, I opted for 1 medium size bowl of veg soup.

1 Medium size bowl of vegetable soup with 1 glass of Lime water (No sugar and no Salt added).

GM diet day 7 vegetable soup recipe:

1 Carrot, 1.5 Tomato, 1/4 Cabbage, 5 mushrooms, 1 cup water.
Water content should be enough to sub-merge all vegetables.

  1. Chop and mix all with water.
  2. We are using pressure cooker to boil. Add all vegetables to cooker. Close the cooker lid.
  3. Switch ON the stove on high flame and let it make a whistle. After 1 whistle, switch OFF the stove.
  4. Let the steam vanish on its own before you try to open the cooker lid.
  5. Once the steam has gone, open the lid and take out the boiled veggies in a bowl.
  6. Seasoning: Sprinkle 2 pinch Salt, 2 pinch black pepper and 1 tsp lemon juice. The soup is ready to serve.

1 Apple.

  • Vinita Somani Mundhra

    Thanku so much dear….For your suggestions…I think I should stop it….thanku so much for ur precious time

  • Vinita Somani Mundhra

    Hi anil …baby is 8 month old and I need to breastfeed for almost 6 more months….This question came in my mind too….u sure I should stop it…

    • Yes, you should NOT do this diet now. I am not a professional diet planner but I still think that this diet is NOT good for you at this time.
      Your health can be severely affected.

      It is better to just avoid sugar (no mithai, no sugar in tea/coffee) and fried foods. You will see instant results in couple of days.
      Just keep eating normal food (rice, chapati and sabzi/dal, fruits and lots of veggies) and you will be fine.

      Your kid needs lot of nutrition at this stage and if your body can’t provide it to him, it can be dangerous for his health.

  • Vinita Somani Mundhra

    I m a breastfeeding mother so sometimes I feel like having somthing

  • Vinita Somani Mundhra

    Thanks for ur suggestions….and having low calorie biscuits is OK or not….I read some where that u can have 4 to 5 biscuits. …I m a breastfeeding mother so sometimes I feel like having something

    • Hi Vinita,
      I would not recommend you to do GM diet if you have a small baby and you need to breastfeed. It can be dangerous for your health.
      Your body needs nutrition and calories to feed your baby too.

      You can do this diet whenever you are done with breastfeeding.

      There are other ways to lose weight. The best way at this time is to start YOGA and completely STOP eating sugar and fried food. You will see your weight dropping pretty fast if you just stop eating sugar and oil.

    Hello anil ….This is my second day of gm diet …nd I lost around 2kgs on my first day itself. today I didn’t lost any weight…Following it religiously…but had 4 low calorie biscuit today..planning to comelete it . little bit of headache.and I m planning to join yoga after this diet..so that I don’t gain plus diet control…any suggestions

    • Hi Vinita,

      Losing 2 kgs on day 1 is just the sign of water weight loss. Remember, if you want the permanent loss if this weight, you have to lose FAT.

      Water weight would come back as soon as you start eating normal food. This is because normal food has salt and salt holds water in your body.

      If you had followed day 1, you have probably not eaten salt and hence the weight loss.

      But, it is certainly a good start. If you complete full 7 days, you would certainly lose a good amount of fat too.

      Starting yoga after this diet is good but starting is now would yield much better results.

      Try to do simple Yoga in your GM diet days and you may lose much more weight than without it.

      Headache is normal during this diet. You should not worry about it. Instead, just focus on something else to keep you busy.

      Diet control is pretty important after any diet. I have in-fact adopted a balanced diet schedule myself and replaced lot of high calorie foods with high nutrient food. I did this during my trial of another diet+exercise regime and you can read about it here:

  • mithilesh somireddy

    hello anil that was an very good article
    as am some 15kgs over weight am planning to do second cycle of gm diet,vegetarian version after a gap of 5 days ,can i do that ?? am waiting for your suggestion

    • Hi Mithilesh,

      Well..you can do that in a gap of 5 days. It would not make a big difference.

      As per my experience, the most weight that we lose by GM weight is really the water weight and not the fat. The total fat that you probably lose during those 7 days is pretty less.
      And for a real weight loss for you to fit in the old clothes, it is important to lose fat.

      Doing it again after 5 days would certainly help you lose some more fat. But, be vary of your health and drink hell lot of water.
      if you feel even a bit of problem, I would suggest to stop continuing and repeat the GM diet after some more gap.

      All the best.

    Hi today is my 6th day didn’t cheated going good lost 6 lb but facing prob of constipation and wana ask wot after 7th day wot to eat

    • Hi Neehsfa,

      Constipation – Have you eaten good amount of fruits in the earlier days? Food contain fiber and they should help in getting rid of constipation. Also, make sure you drink hell lot of water (about 10-11 glasses) to help the bowel movements.

      Well, if you read about the after effects ( http://www.inhouserecipes.com/gm-diet-results/ ) and the situation with me after 7th day, the weight started coming pretty fast when I went back to my usual diet.

      So, my advice would be to control yourself and keep the total calorie intake to about 1200 calories ONLY after 7th day.

      The GM-diet has already challenged your body and has made it work on lesser number of calories. Hence, you need to keep the momentum going.
      Don’t start eating fat and sugar. Keep them away along with controlling the daily calorie intake and you will be able to retain the weight-loss.

      Let me know if you need more information.
