REMEMBER: You Will Lose Lots of Weight with This Diet in 7 Days! INCLUDED: What to Eat During Days 1-7, Indian & Vegetarian Version + The “Special” GM Diet Soup!

If you have been trying to lose anywhere between 10 to 20 pounds just as quickly as humanly possible (we’re talking about dropping that amount of weight in seven days or so), then you are going to want to focus on the General Motors (GM) diet.

This weight loss plan was originally designed and developed by the GM Corporation to help make sure that each and every one of their employees have the information they needed to shed excessive pounds whenever they wanted to!

Surprisingly, this specific program has quickly gained a global following. If you’ve always wanted to be able to lose a crazy amount of body mass in an even more ridiculous short period of time, then you’ll want to pay close attention to all of the information outlined below!

What Is This Program Like?

The General Motors plan is nutritional program that is different from just about any other diet out there on the planet right now, but it uses some already known aspects that have had fantastic results. For instance, the GM diet is broken down into a meal schedule for just one week!

These Are The MOST SHARED Posts In Here: 

This schedule was built on the back of the weekly schedules that Atkins and South Beach dieters used to great success in the past. Basically, this entire plan has been designed and developed from the ground up to produce stunning weight loss in a hurry – by helping you eat much more effectively and in a healthy way!

Keep in mind: All this is possible without forcing you to do anything that you wouldn’t find enjoyable and pleasurable.

As mentioned above, this diet is built on specific meals that you are encouraged to eat every single day for a week.

The focus is on a high fiber foods that have at the same time lower amounts of:

  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Carbohydrates

All this should allow you to shed weight in a hurry.

Day #1

On day one, also known as adjustment day, you are going to want to focus on getting down the basics.

You will be able to eat:

  • Pure water (avoid juices)
  • Fruits (almost any except bananas)

You should be looking forward to eat some apples and a couple of glasses of water for breakfast, and then switch to other fruits like watermelon at lunchtime, following up with even more of these at the evening!

Day #2

[Read More: Truth About Phen375: Reviews, Ingredients, Side Effects and Much More]

This one is going to revolve mostly around:

  • Fresh vegetables & greens
  • Multiple glasses of  water

Extra advice: Eating baked potatoes will help you go through this very hard period!

Day #3

This is where we begin to mix and tweak previous two meal plans. You should go for:

  • Fresh fruits (no bananas)
  • Vegetables (no potatoes)
  • Only water

Eating fruits in the morning and finishing the evening off with fresh vegetables is all you need for this day.

Day #4

You are allowed to have:

  • Bananas
  • GM soup
  • Milk
  • Water

This one is all about fruits in the morning and then the special General Motors soup at the evening – and a couple of bananas if you are feeling like a snack is in order.

Please note! You’ll find the recipe for the wonder soup near the end of this article.

Day #5

You are free to have:

  • Water
  • Tomatoes
  • Lean meat or brown rice

This one is very similar to day number four, but now you’re not allowed to drink milk – instead you have to continue to drink water. Also, you can begin to consume small amounts of lean meat – my advice is to include it in your lunch or dinner!

Day #6

Get ready to ingest:

  • GM soup
  • Plenty of vegetables
  • Some lean meat
  • Lots of water

Finally, this day is going to bring more and more vegetables, as you’ll want to eliminate as much of the fruits and glucose as possible before we really hit the “homestretch”. Meat can be enjoyed as well, and don’t forget about the special General Motors soup!

Day #7

Get ready for the grand finale and prepare to have:

  • Brown rice
  • Vegetables
  • Fruit juice

Finally, we hit the homestretch with the day number seven. This is where we begin to eat brown rice combined with fruits, veggies, and even a bit of meat – really pushing out that extra fat from our bodies in the process!

Possibility to Continue: If you want to, you can continue with this nutritional plan to enjoy even better results!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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 :)

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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:)

  • Nathan Rimmit

    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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Nikki

    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!

  • senthil

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

    • 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

  • 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…

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • Axel

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

  • 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.

  • Furqan

    i started the GM diet plan for 7 days by today….i ate apples and after that 2 glass of water…I just want to know that can i eat 3 dates with milk in the morning breakfast after continue my GM diet plan to reduce the weight and belly fats???

  • 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…

  • leelee

    Hi, I have done this diet before and repeated it for almost two months loosing up to 45 pounds. I felt great and learned how to eat properly as well as exercise. I decided to start the program for a week just to cleanse but I forget is it okay to eat the soup during day one?

    • Satya Madhu Varshini

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Sandra Ratliff

    Can I drink black coffee on this diet?

  • Jueane

    is this safe for breastfeeding moms?

  • 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.”
