GM Diet, Day 6

GM Diet Day-by-Day Account: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5

Today, January 27, 2013, is my Day 6 on the GM Diet. Again, I went out today. We heard the 10am mass at St. Pio of Pietrelcina Center in Libis, Quezon City. I was with the hubby, my mom and my SIL. In the afternoon, we went home in Cavite. Still, not much energy but I was able to handle it well.

Here’s what Day 6 is all about:

Day Six Beef and vegetables. Today you may eat an unlimited amount of beef and vegetables. Eat to your hearts content.

Day 6 Weight: 133 (lost 6 lbs. since Day 1)

I survived Day 1! 🙂

Yes, you read that right. I followed the recommended diet sans deviations. I’m so proud of myself! The challenge continues today, January 23, 2013, my Day 2 on the GM Diet.

Here’s what Day 2 says:

Day Two All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the amount or type. For your complex carbohydrate, you will start day two with a large baked potato for breakfast. You may top the potato with one pat of butter.

GM Diet, Day 1

This is the first time I’m following a diet plan and documenting about it. The name is General Motors Diet or simply GM Diet. (Try googling it and you’ll see a lot of sites talking about it, recommendations, reviews, tips and all.) Basically, it’s a 7-day diet plan originally designed for General Motors Corporation employees to stay in shape and has become quite popular over the years. I would find out later, though, that the GM claim isn’t true. It’s actually more of a modified version of the cabbage soup diet. But I digress.

I first found out about the GM Diet from a blog I visited yesterday. Now, what has made me decide to take on this diet challenge? I have several strong reasons:

1. The food required are all healthy and readily available.
2. The diet plan claims to achieve a weight loss ranging from 10 to 17 lbs, if complemented with exercise.
3. It’s also a sort of “detoxifying” diet.
4. I’ve decided to take my weight loss goal more seriously.
5. This is my first try to follow a diet plan. If it ends up a failure, I’ll just charge it to experience. Haha.
