On day one, also known as adjustment day, you should focus on getting down the basics. Your daily menu should be composed only of fruit and water.

Rules you need to follow:

  • Drink between 8-10 glasses of pure water.
  • You can eat almost any fruit.
  • You have to avoid bananas, oils, and fruit juices at all costs.

Sample meal plan for Day 1:

  1. Breakfast – You can have a bowl of sliced apples (1-2). Don´t forget to drink two glasses of water.

  5. Dinner – Have a bowl of watermelon with two glasses of water.

The aim of the day 1 is to cleanse your body’s digestive system and boost your metabolism. Thanks to this detox period your weight loss over next six days will be easier.

Day #2

vegetable salad

On your second day of the General Motors diet, you should focus on eating only vegetables. Trust me that this day will be hard for you. However, it can be done thanks to the tips below.

Rules you need to follow:

  • You can eat any vegetable and greens (raw, cooked or baked).
  • You have to drink multiple glasses of pure water.
  • You have to limit your oil intake as much as possible.

Sample meal plan for Day 2:

  5. Dinner –  Eat steamed asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Drink two glasses of water.

The aim of day 2 is to increase your fiber intake that will help you to regulate the sugar content from all the fruit eaten on day 1.

Day #3

Girl Eating Fruits and Vegetables

The day 3 is where we begin to mix and tweak previous two meal plans. On this day, you can eat almost any fruit and any vegetable.

Rules you need to follow:

  • Drink a lot of water throughout the day.
  • Eat fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • You can not eat bananas, potatoes, oils, and fruit juices.

Sample meal plan for Day 3:

  1. Breakfast – For breakfast, try a cup of diced apple or melon. Drink at least two glasses of water.
  2. Mid morning snack – If you need that mid-morning snack, go for a bowl with raw cantaloupe and papaya mixture. Again, drink at least two glasses of water.

  5. Dinner –  For dinner, try having a salad with various leafy greens, steamed broccoli, and raw papaya. Again, do not forget to drink two glasses of water.

At the end of this day, you should start to notice some weight loss. I recommend eating a wide variety of fruits and veggies to consume the widest spectrum of vitamins and minerals.

There is cool change on the day 5. You will eat tomatoes (great source of fiber and lycopene). If you are a vegetarian, you will have brown rice, and if you are a meat lover, then you can have a lean meat such as beef (great source of protein and iron).

GM Diet – 1 Week After RESULTS

My GM Diet Experience: What I Ate For 7 Days
CLICK HERE to Download 2017 GM Diet Plan PDF

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ #1: Will I lose water weight only?

Not really. While, the majority of your results will be achieved through loss of water weight, thanks to the reduced caloric intake you will lose some of your body fat.

Therefore, this diet is ideal for kick-starting your metabolism in a short-term and not as a long-term approach to weight management.

FAQ #2: Can I follow the GM diet continuously? How many days gap should I take before starting GM diet again?

No, you should not use this diet as a continuous lifestyle. It is meant to be a kick-start for a better way of eating.

Once you finish your seven-day cycle, you need to have a week off period. Ideally, you should take at least a week or two off before you start again.

Keep in mind: During your weeks off, you should focus on eating a healthy, mineral and vitamin rich food. This way, you can easily replace all those necessary substances you will lose during GM diet.

FAQ #3: How often can I repeat the 7-day cycle?

Luckily, there is no minimal or maximal limit on the number of cycles you can do. However, as I have written in the answer above, you should take at least a week or two off.

Do not forget to follow tips and recommendations from above answers as well.

FAQ #4: What should I eat after the GM cycle to continue losing weight?

To make sure that a kick-start weight loss achieved thanks to GM diet will continue, you shouldn’t return to your old eating habits you followed before.

You should follow this advice:

Keep in mind: If you have not exercised before, then start slowly. Gradually increase the difficulty of your physical activities to not injure yourself in the process.

FAQ #5: Are there any health conditions that will prevent you from following the GM diet?

I do not feel educated enough to answer this question. You should always consult dietary changes you want to take with your medical professional first.

Pay attention: From what I know, I can say that it is not suitable for diabetics, as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women.

FAQ #6: Can I drink coffee or green tea?

Sadly, you can not drink coffee while on this diet. In fact, you should not drink it even on your days off as it is not very healthy for your body (makes your body much more acidic).

On the contrary, herbal as well as green teas are fine. If you need to use any sweetener for your hot beverages, then go for dried stevia leaves as they include zero calories.

FAQ #7: Can I add honey and lemon to my water in the morning?

With regards to lemon, sure, you can add it to your water you drink daily. Just pay attention that lemon makes the environment of your stomach less acidic.

Therefore, you should drink it on empty stomach and wait for at least thirty to forty minutes before you start eating. Otherwise, you could experience indigestion and other health related issues.

Pay attention: With regards to honey, you should not sweeten your water. While it is one of the healthiest sweeteners in the world, it adds a lot of calories to your daily menu you will not need while following GM diet.

FAQ #8: Can I drink alcohol during this diet?

You are not allowed to drink any alcohol during GM diet. It is full of empty calories and can cause serious harm to your organism.

This is the reason why you should not drink alcohol even after you are finished with this diet. There are no health benefits of alcohol that would justify the need to drink it.

FAQ #9: Can we use oil to cook the vegetables and meat?

Sadly, you should not use any oil when cooking your meat or veggies if it is not explicitly stated.

Pay attention: You can see specific directions for each meal in paragraphs above.

FAQ #10: Can we add salt, pepper, and other spices to our foods?

Yes, these are allowed as long as you don’t overdo it. Because you will be drinking a lot of water, you will be losing a lot of minerals from your body.

Therefore, you should add a dash of unprocessed salt such as its pink version from Himalaya mountains into your drink. With regards to pepper, spices, and dried herbs, there are again no rules as long as you keep things normal.

FAQ #11: Can I munch on dry fruits or nuts?

All dried nuts and fruits are not allowed, because these foods provide you with highly concentrated nutrients and energy that you do not need.

Pay attention: You can have these as healthy snacks during your week off but only in small quantities.

FAQ #12: Can I eat roti-s like chapati, pulka, wheat bread, cereal, etc…?

Sadly, you can not eat these because they include a substance called gluten. The GM diet, on the contrary, aims to be gluten-free.

Remember that there are many claims that wheat full of gluten is bad for your body. It can even cause weight gain with other health issues, and if your regular diet is based mainly on it, you will likely not be able to maintain your weight loss after this diet!

  • faizal

    Hi, on day 6. It’s my second time on the GM diet. I wouldn’t be too concerned on the “weight loss” portion, as claimed by the diet because everyone’s body is unique. Some may see results, some may not.
    For me personally:
    1. It’s a good way to get back on the “6 meals a day” regime, since i have been eating excessively for the past 6 months. (processed food, snacking, supper + fast food)
    2. It’s all about getting you to eat properly, small meals and frequent – ultimately to start ketosis.
    3. Detox? – I guess when you eat clean, that comes without saying.
    4. There’s no such thing as a miracle diet without some hard work. I do exercise regularly
    (1hr-Hiit x 3 times a week, with a 10k run on weekends) – so this does help in losing “weight” 🙂

    Well, there’s no harm trying out the GMDiet, but just do it for 1 week.
    Week 2 onwards, you should be cooking your own meals of choice (i stay away from processed food personally) and most importantly the portion (size of your fist! because that’s the size of your stomach) 5-6 meals per day.

    Results? – It depends on how discipline you are :
    1. Eating clean & healthy food.
    2. Workouts/ exercise frequency.

    word of advice, stay away from the scale.

  • Rose Khan

    i lost 4 kg in first four days thank u so much, my initial weight before gm diet was 64kg and now today on 4th day i measured my weight and was surprised its 60kgs, i m very happy, i think my weight will 57 kg on last day, plzz guid me how can i maintain my weight after diet.

  • James Haggard

    This is an abomination.

    The author tricks us into believing following their “specific” “meal plan” is the reason for weight loss, but the actual reason is extreme calorie restriction.

    It’s the same garbage with the cabbage soup diet, the Beyonce diet, and all other 7-day diets.

    If you do this diet, there is a 99.7% chance that you will have a rebound weight gain.

    Again, if you look at what this diet really is . . . it is extreme calorie restriction AND you are eliminating both protein and fat.

    If you eliminate any macronutrient (protein, fat, carbs), you will lose weight, but here is the KICKER – we need these nutrients for optimal function.

    I normally would never post on a website like this and put down another, but the person who wrote this article should be ashamed of themselves.

    You could lose weight doing nothing but smoking cigarettes, shooting up heroine, or doing crack cocaine for seven days, but it doesn’t mean we should do it.

    And we shouldn’t do an extreme diet like this . . . I warn you, if you do this diet there is nearly a 100% chance that you will gain weight again.

  • Mugdha

    I have started this diet today! The first day isn’t so bad! I guess I just like eating fruits! So I had green tea and 2 apples for breakfast. A papaya for lunch. A guava for snacks and watermelon for dinner! I hope I get good results like others! 🙂

  • Sage

    I tired the diet and I lost 8.5lbs in the 7 days. I did use spices, no sodium, but I felt great and it helped me change my portion sizes and feel a lot better. I did drink green tea….

  • Naganaresh

    Can we use spices in the soup?

  • Naganaresh

    Can we have plain green tea?

  • Taylorr24

    I am an active, healthy eating 24 year old female and I wanted to give my review on this diet after trying it this week. This diet does not work for those of us who already eat healthy, but still trying to lose some weight. On day 4 I woke up a whopping 1 pound lighter after depriving myself of eating protein. After day 4 of eating a bunch of bananas, I gained that 1 pound back. I am not finishing this diet because I can’t imagine losing weight now on the rice and meat plan for days 5 and 6. I think this diet would work well if you eat a lot of junk food and fast food, but if you already eat healthy then don’t bother. All this diet did was make me resent boiled vegetables and lose energy to do my daily work outs. I suggest eating HEALTHY with skinless chicken/ and salads and actually have energy to go to the gym rather than starve yourself to maybe lose a half a pound.
    Guess I’m glad I tried though, but I’ll stick with the old saying “not everything you read on the internet is true.”

    • Naganaresh

      How about using spices in that GM soup recipes?

  • Jueane

    is this safe for breastfeeding moms?

    • James Haggard

      Of course it isn’t!

      Your child isn’t going to thrive if you are starving yourself of necessary nutrients for optimal function.

      During the first 4 days of this diet, you are starving your body of both protein and fat.

  • Sandra Ratliff

    Can I drink black coffee on this diet?

  • Jewel Apacible

    Im on my first day of GM Diet. Just a question: Can I do Bikram Yoga? (1.30 mins of yoga)

    Thank you!

  • FoodMatters

    Hi today is my third day of the GM diet. I am a healthy senior female, weigh 117 lb. and just want to shed 6-8 lb. For the past 2 days I only lost 2 lbs which I like the slow hopefully steady pace… My first day was the hardestest! Cause I don’t like fruits at all! So I purée the watermelon and apple to make juice and drank it. Is it okay?

    • Taylor

      I didn’t lose any weight on this diet I am a healthy active 24 year old female. I followed this ridiculous plan exactly and got nothing in return. I suggest skipping this and just cutting out the breads/pastas.

  • Maya Madeya

    Hi I just wanted to ask on day 5 it says chicken soup for dinner.. Do I have to make my own or can I buy ready made one?

  • Harmony

  • mlm

    I am allergic to tomatoes, so what I can do on day 5? Any suggestion for a diet without tomatoes?

    • Reshma George

      HI,,.. Tomatoes are to remove uric acid from your body along with all the water you are supposed to drink. Replace tomatoes with another fruit/veggie that can do the same function … Tamarind has almost the same property…

  • halleyparrot

  • Tosca Acorda

    Hi there, I’m just about to start Day 3 as of this writing. In doing Days 1 and 2, I have lost 5.28 pounds. I wouldn’t say it was entirely from the diet as I have started going to the gym 4 days prior to starting the GM diet. While on my days 1 and 2, I still went to the gym but just did a decent amount of walking and some stretching. I guess if I hadn’t done both diet and workout, the process of losing weight will be a lot slower. I’m doing the diet to help me get a kick start and hopefully able to maintain the results by eating a lot healthier and continuing going to the gym.

  • Axel

    i ate very small piece of meat on day 3.. do i need to restart again?

  • Sneha Gujarathi

    what we can do or follow after our 7 days plan…. Like how we can maintain same decreased weigts… Do we have any restrictions to follow after 7 days gm diet plan?

    I’ve worked for General Motors for 16 years and have never heard of this program.

    • Jared

      Yeah, I work at the design center and I’ve never heard of it.

    • likejiujitsu

      It is a myth that GM started it. google for the NY Times article on the myth.

  • neha

    I am on day 4 and I have not lost even 1 kg. I am really disappointed. I have followed the diet chart except one thing that I had 1 potato on day3 by mistake but everything else I followed. Kindly help.

  • mandy

    can i have egg-plant cooked with onion ,ginger and spices on 3rd day

  • Doretta

    The recipe for the wonder soup consist of a lots of ingredients. My question is you can only consume it on the two days mentioned

  • Looks like a great diet plan, the basic thing is consume diet full of nutrients and be disciplined in daily life. It is necessary to keep hormones in balanced state.

  • Parvathy

    It’s my 5th day,actually I’d call it my fifth night ‘coz I do night shifts and sleep all day,I feel much lighter though I haven’t lost a lot,just a 2.5 Kg,bt I feel energetic and happy.I have done this 3 years back and it went well,I was able to shed a few pounds andwas very confident,bt as the years passed by I gained the lost wait again!!!!!!!Back then I was in India and it was difficult for me to practice the diet,still I managed to succeed in it,now am abroad and seemingly easy to follow it.I hope it works this time.

  • Iyshwarrya MMV

    Hi am on day 4. From sterday onwards i feel more head ache and hungry. May i know what should i do for this ???????????

    • mandy

  • shazleena

    i lost 1 kilo in one day

  • Adarsh

    I started it today, I had tried it 3 years back, but was not able to go beyond Day 2. I quit smoking this year, and said to myself “If i can let go off cigarette, then why cant i let go off all the junk foods” hopefully i will be back here next week with the results.

  • paulmichaels

    Hello…I’m on Day 7 of this diet. I like it. I don’t think this is so much about weight loss as it is eating to clear out the toxins in your body. I’ve lost 7 pounds in 7 days, which is excellent. I’ve also gotten a little sick with a cough, some headaches and a little general fatigue…all which have subsided towards the end. The body is something spectacular and this diet has helped to flush out some underlying problems in my system. Feeling great on Day 7 and now looking to turn up an exercise program and overall healthier diet…

  • nick

    it’s been a week, I have lost 4.5 kg. it’s been quite easy, to be honest, I was dreading it. today is my last day. can I just start all over from the beginning tomorrow morning? I could stand to lose another 10 kg. thank you.

    • Eternal optimist

      Thanks a lot Nick for sharing your experience, it great n heartening to listen you succeeded
      I have from an expert that there should be at-least 1 week gap before one starts next 7 day program. Needless to say- in this coming week, you just eat your healthy stuffs only

  • A.m.s

    Can we replace meat with chicken? I don’t take meat and I really want to try this diet

    • bunghole


  • Natali

    i’m planning to start this diet tomorrow. but i’ve been addicted to drinking green tea, at least three times a day with no suger and no sweetner. should i stop the tean for the diet???

  • mei

    can i add sugar in the cooked vegetable and beef?

  • Celsabil Selly

    can i not include the soup? I absolutely detest it!

  • Karen Randhawa

    hi all , i just started with this and all i want to know is can i take miracle soup everyday… n i am tea lover so ahveing one green n 2 black teas with sweetner

  • cyreej

    splendid result.. goodbye 3kgs in 5 days!!

  • senthil

    i planned to start it today…my weight is 101.7kg…let see what happens

  • You can actually eat the soup every day from day 1 … this article doesn’t seem to say that. It’s a great appetite suppressant!

  • Flora88

    That soup doesn’t sound half bad. I think I’d throw in a little cayenne pepper to add a little kick to it. The capsaicin in peppers tends to curb your appetite and boost your metabolism. If you can stand the heat, it will help in the weight loss process. I learned about this from the Dr. Oz show.

  • J Carolina

    I tried the GM diet. It helps if you’ve got a specific goal for this diet because it’s hard going cold turkey, especially on that first day. You’ll feel somewhat okay because of all that sugar in the fruits, but you’ll still feel hungry. For me, fruits only keep me full for an hour or so.

    Anyway, I survived the whole week. Lost 8.5 lbs, which was enough for the dress I needed to fit in to. I didn’t stick with it though. Obviously this isn’t meant to replace your regular diet, but it’s great for rapid weight loss.

    • Martha Robinson

      I guess it’s pretty hard to go from eating a regular breakfast to eating apples and drinking water in the morning. I know I wouldn’t be able to function properly without having a good breakfast. For me, it’s the most important meal of the day. If I don’t eat right in the morning my whole day starts out badly.

      I think it’s great that you managed to lose 8.5 pounds within a week! Hopefully this wasn’t too hard on your body as sometimes losing that kind of weight that fast can be dangerous. It seems you were fine but I have to ask: did you have any sort of seizures or other side effects relating to this diet? I guess one week is fine but if you were to do this for a full month what would have happened? Is there someone here that has tried this diet for more than 1 week? How did it go?

  • shannon

    General Motors has a diet (of all things)? I never knew!

    I think on that first day I would need most of my fruits made into a smoothie without the dairy. I would do strawberries, blueberries, kale, water and crushed ice to thicken it. Yes… I would cheat with the kale and steamed spinach on the days when they weren’t allowed. I can’t imagine that fresh veggies are part of the weight gain problem.

    However I do agree with the abundance of water. We rarely keep juice in our house. You really do notice the difference in how you feel and how your skin looks with lots of water.

  • Vickie Terrell

    I tried to do the GM diet. It seemed pretty simple…but on day one by 6pm I had a migraine and then a couple hours later I began to throw up. I had to stop and eat a peanut butter sandwich. Did anyone else have results like this?

    • Rayna

      It’s not unusual to have migraines on a cleansing type of diet. Whenever I start a diet where I cut out a lot of unhealthy foods, I always get headaches for the first few days. This is especially true when I’m cutting out sugar and caffeine. My head feels thick and foggy like I’ve got sinus problems.

      It’s your body adjusting to the changes. So you might feel sleepy, irritated, definitely hungry, lol! You might even have to use the bathroom more than usual. It’s all part of the body readjusting. I would have had a salad with some nice fresh greens and a little oil and vinegar to fight the feeling. Vegetables tend to stabilize me.

    • Christine

      Are you a coffee drinker. I think my headache was caused by lack of caffeine from my coffee that I usually drink every morning. Day 2 I drank unsweetened tea. I stuck with it & lost 9 lbs., then with a diet off lean meat & lots of fruits & veggies & lost 3 more pounds.
      I think this is a great way to cleanse & start eating healthy.

    • mandy

      yes ,i had same condition on 2nd day..but took 2 advil then everything good…now i m on 3rd day its good

  • It sounds really fascinating indeed. The 7 day GM diet plan looks genuine and it may surely works. It is all depends on you that how you execute the meal plan. Following the proper diet plan would maintain your fitness.

  • Belinda

    Sound very interesting! I can’t really see how it could do harm anything, and it certainly could not be worse than all the junk food I’ve been eating lately! I do think something like this would be helpful to get out of the habit of eating dessert after every meal and lots of bread. I love bread and pasta:( Do you experience any stomach issues with this? On the banana day are you supposed to eat bananas with milk at the same time or can you eat bananas for breakfast and milk for dinner? And can I make a banana milk smoothie and maybe add a tad bit of honey?? Please advise:)

  • Melissa the Wedding Planner

    As a wedding planner, I cannot express how many brides complain about losing weight. So I am going to recommend to them this diet. It seems very straight forward and the meal preparations seem to be minimal. I think I might even try it myself, I love vegetable and fruits!

  • Mia

    I did this diet to kick off my weight loss journey and I must say that it does work, however you need will power to not eat any of the foods you are suppose to avoid. The other thing is that the soup gave me a some gas lol mainly due to the cabbage. I enjoyed this diet and when I gain a few unwanted pounds I do the diet. I recommend this diet! I also recommend that, while you are on this diet that you have no social events to attend that way theres no food temptations lol.

  • Tara

    I’ve been on the General Motors Diet (I know, a car company, seriously? lol) for 5 days now and have lost nearly ten pounds. My first attempts at diet and exercise failed miserably and I ballooned up to nearly 150lbs- I am 5 feet tall so weight shows up fast on me. You can imagine how angry I was. Anyway, I tried this diet, and it seems to be working well. First off let me say, I detest dieting. But with this diet you see fast results. I just saved this website, that way I could keep track of what to eat and not eat, each day.

    • Pamela Dragoo

      Could it be General Mills??

  • Chris

    I am on day 1, and I cannot wait until day 2, so I can eat my baked potato lol. I had blueberries for breakfast, a huge melon for lunch and for supper I plan to eat water melon. When I get hungry I just drink lots of water. Please be warned, you will be running to the bathroom often lol

  • Johnathan

    i really recommend the GM soup, it’s very good. not to mention that by just substituting one of your meals with soup you’ll lose a little weight even if you don’t change other stuff!

  • chandak

    really like the indian adjustment, will use, thank you!

    i want to lose weight in one week to look better, this will help 🙂 the soup sound very good.

  • Luisa

    looks like a mix of low cal and detox. i do something like this every winter’s end to get myself out of the funk induced by heavy winter meals. the stomach gets smaller, and you start developing a taste for veggies!

  • SoupLover

    that soup sounds delicious! diet or no diet, i’m making it! maybe i’ll go on this diet, but i’m still looking for the one perfect for me. this does sound interesting though!

  • Lidya

    it’s nice that a company cared so much about their employees! i’m still an advocate for lifestyle change, but whomever wants a quick fix could do this in a pinch 🙂

  • Leticia

    On Day 2 you suggest eating a baked potato, but on Day 3 I’m not allowed to have potatoes? i guess I could use a little clarification. I want to do this, and don’t want to wreck it all over one potato.

  • Cerise

    It actually doesn’t look that bad at all. The first 3 days will probably be hard, but it gets easier from there. It’s just 7 days, after all!

  • Shauna

    I’m thinking I might grab that GM soup recipe and substitute my lunches for that for a few weeks. Maybe I’ll lose a little weight! I know I’m just a chicken, but a diet that strict kind of scares me.

  • Michael

    That’s really interesting that GM would put so much research into dieting. I hadn’t really thought of them as a corporation that cared about their employees health, given the way they pollute the land around their plants.

  • Ashley

    This looks highly effective but I just would worry about being overly hungry and is it really safe?

    • Priscilla

      Yeah, it looks easy enough, but I know I’m going to be going absolutely nuts by day 3!

      • wendy

        This is my second time doing this diet. The first time yes the first day was really hard but it got easier and I loved the results. Now I am trying it again a few years later and well it’s way harded this time I guess because I know what to expect and how to feel. Just a tip for ppl just starting this I like to add lemons or limes to my water because it gets boring after awhile.
