The General Motors diet (GM Diet) was named after the company itself, a diet that was launched to integrate and help build health concerns for people they are working with, including families and friends.
Now what makes this diet completely unique from other diet programs is that it requires daily food intakes of fresh fruits and vegetables, without the exemption of dairy products. This is closely related to the second type of vegetarian diet where dairy product intakes are allowed. There are no food exemptions in this diet, only that you will have to follow rules and guidelines in order to attain the diet fitness the program was designed for.
The GM diet can be followed by both non-vegetarian as well as vegetarians. The General Motors diet follows a systematic method of food consumption, as given below:
Day 1: Only fruits, except for banana can be consumed. Dieters are advised to consume larger quantities of loupe and watermelon than other fruits.
Day 2: Only raw or cooked vegetables, rich in fiber, can be consumed. Dieters are advised to start their day with consuming a large baked potato, to make sure the body gets the required carbohydrate content. The meals should not have an excess of spice or salt in them.
Day 3: A mix of fruits and vegetables can be consumed. This should not include banana or potato. During the third day, the system begins the process of burning fat.
Day 4: 8 bananas and 3 glasses of milk should be consumed, to maintain the required levels of potassium and sodium that the body requires. The dieter can also consume the cabbage soup on this day in limited quantities.
Day 5: 2 oz lean beef or cottage cheese (for vegetarian) with 6 fresh tomatoes should be consumed, which will provide your body with the required iron and protein content. At least a quart of water needs to be consumed on the fifth day to flush out the uric acid produced in the body.
Day 6: Lean meat or cottage cheese can be consumed with an unlimited amount of vegetables.
Day 7: Only brown rice, fruit juices (no sugar added) and vegetables should be consumed. By the seventh day, the dieter begins to feel lighter, healthier, and more alert.
