    Too bad it didn’t work out as promised. But 3 Kgs in a week is still a pretty good sign. Let me try it out in January. Also do you not feel any giddiness when you do it?

    that is, when you don’t eat rice which contain essential daily carb intake, will it not cause hungriness and giddiness? Are the fruits, vegetables sufficient to last you through the day and the week?

    Sorry, just curious and want to know if there were any side effects?

      Hi Kaartika,
      I’m really glad you took the patience to read the article ;)
      to answer your question, I was very skeptical in the beginning to try it out as even I was worried about the lack of carbohydrates in the diet. But as I started it, I realised that for the amount of sugars we put in our body through the fruits and vegetables, we’ll be so full that we wouldn’t even realise we haven’t eaten any carbs.
      No giddiness or anything. In fact by day four, I was sick of eating. My portions decreased and I no longer felt hunger pangs :)

          if you feel hungry…you’re doing it wrong…!!!
          try eating throughout the day rather than your regular meal times. that should help

    Well, i dont agree with the fad diets at all. esp. gm diet, if u’ll monitor your weight, u’ll gain it right back within a week of eating right. these diet cut back on protein and other vital nutrients. the weight people generally loose is water weight. just monitor your weight after one week, all the lost weight will be right back. for healthy weight loss, one has to make lifestyle changes.

      Hi Shweta,
      Thank you for posting your honest opinion. Let me tell you mine. I did the GM diet way back in october. It is january now. Almost four months to the day I finished the diet. I had lost 3 kilos, and I haven’t gained them back till now. My lifestyle hasn’t changed nor have my food habits. Where has the weight gone then?
      I believe t has gone for good. And I certainly will be doing this again and again. If not for weightloss but for my general wellbeing. :)

          Thank you Shweta…the trick during the diet is to choose your fruits and vegetables in such a way that all the nutrient requirements are met.
          We are in no way starving ourselves nor are we depriving the body of any of the nutrients/ calorie count required :) :)

            I am more of an exercise person, i really dont get the dieting stuff, in past three year i had been in two major cosmopolitan gyms , one in New York and another in London, i have learnt this fro my trainers there. eating healthy and exercising is the best way for all around wellness. but anyways dear whatever works for ones body type is best suited for them. All the best for your future rendezvous ..

            this diet isnt designed for an intense workout because we simply cannot compensate enough energy with it. try having a portion of dal or lean meat with each meal to compensate with it

            Hi Rmyah, I loved your article very much, but have a issue regarding
            which I’m posting here. In my case, I’ve started Gym for weight loose
            & having a conscious diet. but i can follow this Diet as I’ve
            indulge into a intense workout program ? I’m getting shapes because of
            exercise but not loosing weight with i want to ripped of.

            suggest me if I can follow the GM diet plan with any addition to meet
            my Protein requirement. Hope to hear from you soon..!!

    I followed this diet, but due poor availability of vegetables, i had sprouts along with tomatoes and onions. Also, i substituted rice with oats. But, I haven’t had any weight loss, I weigh 80 kgs & am still at that. But i do feel lighter. Will more such sessions of diet help me shed a bit of weight ?

    1. khan

      i feel the substitute is right.
      but are you drinking the mentioned amount of water?
      and you need to combine this diet with mild exercise and min half an hour walk..

  4. Mohan's Ey Chikeetha

    can we eat particular and some vegetables in 2nd and 3rd days like tomatoes,capscicum,onion and can we eat more tomatoes in 2nd day diet

  5. Varsha

    I have also gone through this diet several times, and managed to lose only 3kgs every time. Of which, 1 kg I would tend to put on very fast, but the other 2 kgs lost have stayed off me for ever. Hence, this diet is definitely worth a try. I have managed to take off 10 kgs off me, during a period of 6 months by just following this diet once a month for 6 months.

  6. preethi

    i have done this diet for 3 months now and must say that i have lost 13 kilos so far and put nothing back on. i have been eating fatty stuff inbetween this period and its just fantastic that all the weight you lose doesnt come back on. of all the diets i have tried i would recommend this one to any of them like me who are obese and have about 30 or more kilos to lose. i still have a long way to go in terms of losing more but can achieve it through this diet.

  9. Nike-y Girl

    Day 2
    Foods: boiled potato, lettuce, steamed callaloo, lots of cucumber
    Feeling: full and satisfied, a little light-headed
    State-of-mind: progressive and optimistic

    It is not just following the plan, you need to do atleast 15-20 mins Walk and 20-30 mins exercise. I started 4 days back, in the afternoon when i checked i almost reduced 3 Kgs….Also you need to drink lot of water….

    1. hema

      That’s great. I didn’t do any exercises( thought running behind my little kid is enough). next week will do again and that time will do exercises too as u suggested.

  11. hema

    I completed my gm diet. Total I lost 2 kgs only.. but feeling very good. My body feeling lite now. Got habit of drinking more water and eating greens and fruits. Now I am not liking to eat salty chips or any other junk food and deep fries. My taste buds got changed and just hating salt and sugar :) <3 will do again after a week

    1. hema

      2nd day u feel head ache in the night. But don worry. just 1 more day. From 4th day u don’t get head ache or any pain. u will start feeling comfortable from 4th day. keep updating ur weight loss :)

    I lost 30+ LBS the healthy way over a course of a year…Then lot’s of things happened and I gained it all back! New Year’s is around the corner and I’ve always wanted to fit into a mini skirt…to surprise my husband but anyways! I’m back to exactly where I started!
    I’ve read mixed reviews.
    Quick question, now that you’re done with it, have you gained it all back???
    THANK YOU!!!

  13. neru

    Did the diet lost 3kk. Not sure how much you can eat of the curd, sprouts, cottage cheese or paneer etc as a vegetarian. Does anyone know? I cup of brown rice and 6 tomatoes seem to be a small amount to the large portions of beef!

  14. khan

  15. Gops

    Hi, after reading your post, I too started with GM diet. I a very heavy person…so I really wanted to loose lot of weight and dunno how to start ;). Everytime I think to reduce..but somehow not able to.

    Anyways as per your post I started day1..and was very happy I was able to complete without any issues..But Second day was really tough..By midday I felt dizziness..:(. And so with vegetables I ate a slice of bread :(. Is it okay?

    This is my third day. Hope I will finish this day too. But yesterday I am not sure I did cheat..Will that create a lot of difference?

    Thanks, Gops

    you said on day 5th one can have brown rice and tomamtos. i want to know 1 cup brown rice should be cooked or uncooked? i mean 1 cup uncooked rice is in much quantity when it been cooked. whereas 1cup cooked rice is so less that i can’t stay on it for a day. kindly help me.
