How To Lose Weight Fast: GM Diet Plan: Vegetarian GM Diet Chart, Daily Updates + Tips!
So lately I have been a big lazy bum and started skipping my workouts. Somehow this always happens with me. I lose weight, I maintain it for say a couple of months and then laziness sets in again and I gain it all back. So this time I plan on kicking this habit of mine once and for all and to start my weight loss program I decided to start off with this insanely popular GM diet. Now, I have never been a fan of diets and I do not believe in dieting, primarily because being a punjabi I’m a big time foodie and would rather have that extra piece of pizza and spend an extra hour at the gym working off the calories.
Best Weight Loss Program: GM Diet Plan, Chart & Tips
However, the GM diet is more of a detoxification process which I think will be perfect to prepare my body. It is a 7 day weight loss program which consists of eating certain fruits and veggies on a particular day. I have tried this before twice, unsuccessfully, and let me tell you it is definitely tough. I have managed to stick to it till Day 5 after which I’ve lost steam 🙁 So this time, I’m hoping to keep myself motivated with your support by daily updating the post with my experience and GM diet chart for vegetarians, kinda like a journal 🙂 Follow my on Instagram @heartbowsmakeup for my daily updates!

So below is the GM diet chart & for the 7 day weight loss program
Day 1: For the first day, your diet is restricted to fruits and only fruits. There is no restriction on the amount but all you are supposed to eat is fruits and consume water 😀 Packaged juices are a strict no – no and fresh juices should be avoided. Also fruits like bananas with starchy carbohydrates should be avoided.
Day 2: On day 2, you are only allowed to eat vegetables, raw or boiled but without any salt or additions. Also intake of a minimum of 10 glasses of water is highly recommended.
Day 3: On this day, you can have both fruits and vegetables and is definitely my favorite day as it felt the easiest. However, vegetables like corn, carrots and peas are to avoided.
Day 4: On day 4 of the GM diet, you are supposed to have bananas, skimmed milk (without sugar) and the GM Diet soup also popular as the Wonder Cabbage soup (shall be sharing the recipe on Day 4 of my diet).
Day 5: As the diet progresses, it gets easier and on this day, you are allowed to have 5 to 6 large tomatoes with small servings of beef. For vegetarians, the alternative is lentils.
Day 6: On day 6 you are recommended to have mixed vegetables, especially greens along with beef/protein alternative for vegetarians. You can also have the wonder soup on Day 6.
Day 7: On the last day of the GM Diet Chart, you are allowed to have a little amount of starch. So you can have fruits, vegetables, a bowl of white/brown rice along with sprouts.
