GM Diet is an aggressive diet plan and claims to reduce about 4.5 – 7.5 Kgs (10-17 Lbs) in a week’s time. Is it true? Yes, may be, may be not?

I will try to answer all these questions when i will be done with testing this diet plan.

GM Diet is primarily based on extensive use of Fruits and vegetables.

I am not sure about the authentication of this diet’s relation with the General motors, but sounds like this one is quite famous and people are too keen to try it. I am no different and here I am (Anil Gupta) trying to test the diet plan and hoping to reduce the claimed weight!

Also, This is not the first time that I am trying to lose weight. I was successfully able to lose about 4.5 Kgs earlier in about 1.5 months without exercising.

At that time, I did not follow GM diet but ate only high protein items. I was able to simply avoid sugar (sweets and other desi mouth watering delicacies) as I was on an assignment abroad where Indian sweets were not easily available.

But this time, I am trying to loose same amount of weight in a much lesser span of time.

The GM diet plan talks about eating Beef during the program on Day 5 as noted on many sites on internet. I am a non-vegetarian but will be following a Vegetarian version.

Be with me to see how things turn up in next 7 days. I will share all my details and eating behavior with you here.

To start the process, I have stacked up my stock with the following:

Fruits –

  • 1 medium size Watermelon
  • 4 Kiwi
  • 2 medium size Papaya
  • 6 Apples
  • 6 Oranges
  • 4 Banana

Vegetables –

  • 1 big size Cabbage
  • 3 Cucumber
  • 2 Broccoli medium size
  • 10 Tomatoes,
  • 2 bunch Spinach

My current details as of GM diet Day 0:

Weight83 Kgs (182.9 LB)
Waist37 Inch
Height5 Ft 8 Inch
Ideal weight as per Height69 Kgs (152.1 LB)
Target to loose4 Kgs (9 Lbs)

Please note that Day 0 is NOT the first day of GM diet. It is the day just before the diet start day.

GM Diet Day 0. Preparing for the diet week…not really.

I tried to control but ended up stocking a lot just before starting on the mission.


4 Slices of bread (roasted with Oil on Tawa).
1 Large Cup (Our 1 Cup = 240 ML) of Tea.

My mother in India likes Red Label Tea whereas we use Wagh Bakri Tea in USA. Somehow, we like Wagh Bakri more. Its economical with good taste.


Heavy Indian style Buffet.
1 medium size bowl of butter chicken.
1 butter Nan.
2 Idlis.


2 Gobi Paratha with 1 bowl white rice.

So, after having a good Sunday outing with good food, I am going on a GM diet from tomorrow. I will be adding my food details and observations tomorrow. Keep watching.
