If you have been trying to lose anywhere between 10 to 20 pounds just as quickly as humanly possible, then you should focus on the General Motors (GM) diet.
This 7-day weight loss plan was originally designed by the GM Corporation to 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 program has quickly gained a global following!
If you’ve always wanted to be able to lose a crazy amount of weight in just 7-days, then you’ll want to pay close attention to all of the information outlined below!
Everything You Need to Know About This Program
The General Motors plan is a nutritional guide that is different from just about any other diet out there. However, it incorporates already known aspects of weight loss that have had fantastic results!
For instance, the GM diet is broken down into a meal schedule for just one week! It was built on the back of weekly programs that both Atkins and South Beach dieters used to great success in the past!
Keep in mind: 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 efficiently and in a healthy way! All this is possible without forcing you to do anything that you wouldn’t find enjoyable and pleasurable.

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 while you have to follow these rules:
- You should drink between 8-10 glasses of pure water!
- You can eat almost any fruit!
- You have to avoid bananas, oil and fruit juices at all costs!
My advice: You should eat some apples and drink a couple of glasses of water for breakfast. Then you should switch to other fruits (I highly suggest a watermelon) at lunchtime, following up with even more fruits as your dinner!
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 unless you will follow these rules:
- You can eat any vegetable & 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!
- Baked potatoes can make this day a lot easier!
Extra advice: Eating baked potatoes will help you go through this very hard period!
The day 3 is where we begin to mix and tweak previous two meal plans. On this day, you should eat almost any fruit and any vegetable as long as you will follow these rules:
- Drink a lot of water throughout the day!
- Eat fresh fruits and vegetables!
- You can not eat bananas, potatoes, oil and fruit juice!
Keep in mind: Eating fruits in the morning and finishing the evening off with fresh vegetables is all you need for this day!
On day 4 you will be eating only bananas, milk, water and special GM soup. However, you have to follow these rules:
- You should eat 8-10 bananas!
- At least 3 glasses of milk!
- There are no limits to amounts of GM soup you can eat!
- Drink a lot of water!
- Avoid eating oil and drinking fruit juice!
My advice: You should start with fruits in the morning. Then, you should have the special General Motors soup (see the recipe for this wonder soup at the end of this article) at the lunch and dinner. You can add a couple of bananas if you feel like a snack is in order!
There is cool change on the day 5. If you are a vegetarian, you will have rice, and if you are a meat lover, then you can have a lean meat such as fish! Except that, you have to follow these rules:
- You can have lean meat or brown rice!
- You should eat 6-8 tomatoes!
- You have to drink at least 10-12 glasses of water!
- As stated above, you can have lean meat or brown rice!
- As always avoid oil and fruit juice!
My advice: Include your rice or lean meat to your main meals such as lunch and dinner!
