Gobbling up GM Diet (Day 1 of 7)

Yes, we are at 1 down and 6 more to go. For the next 7 days I would share our personal experience with GM diet and how we planned the meals for each day. Hence, I would refrain from providing elaborate general information on the diet, its benefits, its side effects, all of which you can easily Google.

Got questions?? I know. I would like to answer a few basic ones from a personal point of view and then tell you about how Day 1 went.


Well, it is not quite sudden. We have been planning it for some time. We wanted to shed off the sludge from the 'not so active' winter months and get ready for spring and summer.


Our principal goal was to detox, and this one takes good care of it. The diet mostly consists of fruits and vegetables, thus goes well with the season. Moreover, it gives more energy and less fat resulting in losing a few good pounds in a short time of one week (with a few simple exercises). I would happily take that.

TRIVIA : GM diet or General Motors diet has been around since 1985. It was developed by General Motors in collaboration with the FDA and U.S Department of Agriculture to help keep their employees fit and healthy. They even tested it at Johns Hopkins Research Center before giving it a final approval.


FRUITS ONLY (except Bananas) and 8 to 10 glasses of WATER.

You can have unlimited amount of fruits on the first day. Preferably fruits like watermelon, melons, cantaloupes which are abundant in water content. (Mango and jackfruit are not a good choice).

Let me now take you through our Day 1 meals.

BREAKFAST (8:30 am)

Apple; 1/2
Cantaloupe: 1 cup
Watermelon: 1 cup

SNACK (11:00 am)

Pineapple : 1 cup

LUNCH (1:00 pm)

Fruit medley : A large bowl of mixed fruits - Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Orange, Apple, Blackberry


Grapes: 1 cup

DINNER (8:30 pm)

Fruit medley: A medium bowl of mixed fruits - Apple, Pear, Orange, Blackberry


The day went pretty well till the evening snack but more fruits for dinner felt terrible. We were really craving something savory. But had to stick to the diet.

As I write the post we are already into Day 2. So do not forget to visit the blog tomorrow to know about our experience of the second day.
