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)

GM Diet, Day 5

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

Today, January 26, 2013 is my Day 5 on the GM Diet. My energy in the past days, though lower than usual, was enough to keep me going the entire day. I love how this diet still allows me to go out and do things.

Here’s what Day 5 says:

Day Five Today is feast day. You will eat beef and tomatoes. Eat two 10 oz. portions of lean beef. Hamburger is OK. Combine this with six whole tomatoes. On day five you must increase your water intake by one quart. This is to cleanse your system of the uric acid you will be producing.

Day 5 Weight: 134 (lost 5 lbs. since Day 1)

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.
