Gobbling up GM Diet (Day 6 of 7)

We are already approaching the end of this diet, 6 down and 1 more to go. The introduction of protein on the previous day was really a welcome change. We also noticed a certain loss of appetite as we felt full even after having small portions.

If you missed the previous posts, please click on these links: DAY 1 , DAY 2 , DAY 3 , DAY 4 , DAY 5

DAY 6

VEGETABLES (except potatoes) and 20 oz/ 500 gms of  BEEF/ CHICKEN/ FISH and 8 to 10 glasses of WATER

Vegetarians can have similar portions of BROWN RICE, LENTILS, KIDNEY BEANS, PANEER.

This day is almost similar to day 5, only the tomatoes get replaced by vegetables. As there has been a two day gap since the body got the nutrients and fiber from veggies this resumption is necessary. You are again allowed 10 oz/ 500 gms of protein on this day. We were craving some rice for quite some time so we balanced out that with reducing our protein intake. We included a cup of rice and had 10 oz/ 250 gms of chicken (boneless, skinless) which is half the protein portion that has been suggested on the plan.

Let me now take you through our Day 6 meals. Since there was certain loss of appetite we decided to stick to the timings of the previous day of four meals instead of six.

BREAKFAST (8:30 am)

Rice Bowl

Brown rice: 1 cup (cooked)
Vegetables: 1 1/2 cup (boiled)
A few boiled kidney beans to add to the texture and flavor

I kept this very simple, just mixed everything together and seasoned it with salt and pepper. Rice for breakfast might not sound appetizing but is it advisable to have rice earlier in the day, latest by lunch so that the extra calories get burnt throughout the day.


EARLY AFTERNOON (11:30 pm)

Veggie Salad

This is basically the same salad that we ate on day 2. It's really a tasty and filling salad.


EARLY EVENING (4:00 pm)

Cajun Veggie Soup

Once again it is this special GM diet soup which I had improvised on with zero oil and special seasoning. You can find this one too on day 2 of our meal planning.


DINNER (8:00 pm)

Asian Style Chicken and Veggies

Chicken: 10 oz/ 250 gms
For Asian seasoning
Tamarind pulp: 1 tbsp
Chopped ginger and garlic: 1/4 cup
Vinegar: 1 tbsp
Chili flakes: 1 tsp
Honey: 1 tbsp
Salt to taste

I marinated the chicken for 1 hour in the Asian seasoning then let it cook in my slow cooker with some onions, bell peppers, spring onions and asparagus. I resisted myself from using soy sauce as the plan does not allow any processed food or sauce. The good thing is that the slow cooker simply eliminates the need for oil yet makes everything taste extremely delicious and flavorful. 


HOW DID WE FEEL ABOUT DAY SIX

I would say this day was the most balanced one by far. We could enjoy different things at different times of the day.

As I write this post we are into the last day of this diet plan, so make sure to check back tomorrow to know all about the final day.
