I just watched a youtuber BENI do GM diet and lose 12 lbs in 7 days, so now I'm curious to try it myself. I've been having a weight loss plateau like forever now and I could really use some good and quick results. This also seems somewhat safe for me atm.

 

GM diet restricts which foods you can eat on particular days. The amounts are not really restricted. I'm going to follow similarly as Beni did. The diet itself claims you can lose even 20 lbs in a week following this diet, but quick research shows most people only lose about 9-11 lbs. That's great results for someone who's been stuck at same weight for 2-3 weeks (me!).

 

Rules:

  • day 1: fruit only, no banana
  • day 2: vegetables only (Beni ate most vegetables raw and made juice out of tomatoes)
  • day 3: fruits and vegetables, no banana or potato
  • day 4: 6 large or 8 small bananas and 3 glasses of milk, preferably skimmed
  • day 5: 2x250g meat (chicken, fish, beef, pork..), can be substituded with cottage cheese (Beni had only 3x100g beef)
    also 6 tomatoes (Beni made 2 into a juice and ate other 4)
  • day 6: 2x250g meat/ cottage cheese as day before, vegetables but no potatoes
  • day 7: only brown rice, fruit, fruit juice and vegetables

Also, drink enough water, especially on high protein days!

 

So, I'm starting this diet tomorrow and I will go for 7 days. Let's see if this diet is enough to break my plateau! I'm feeling really hopeful! :wub:

DAY 1: Nothing but fruit, no banana
BREAKFAST

SW: 156.6 lbs

I was yesterday 155.7 lbs so I'm back up to the weight I've been stuck with like forever now despite low restricting.

My breakfast was 50g blueberries (frozen) and an apple.

I also tried self made "iced americano" but I just can't stand black coffee. No amount of ice is going to change that fact. Going to stick with water, green tea and rooibos from here on.

DAY 1: LUNCH

I walked for 1.5 hours (including a quick pop by grocery store) and burned 470cals according to my HRM.

For lunch I had half of galia melon and 1 kiwifruit. It was soooooo good!! Much better than candy.

DAY 1: DINNER (and snack)

I had 1 apple for a snack. For dinner I had 1 apple, 1 pear and 1 kiwifruit. I was sooooooo hungry so I had to eat earlier than I had planned, but after eating all that I'm now super stuffed.

DAY 1 TOTAL INTAKE

I had total 486 calories
Carbs 94g
Protein 5g
Fat 3g
Fiber 29g

Steps: > 13 500

At first I was doing very well but after midday I started feeling quite tired and lethargic. 2 hours after lunch I got super hungry and all I could think of was eating. I'm a little nervous just how hungry I will get before tomorrow's breakfast.

Ps. Dreaming of chicken burrito right now :unsure:

Update on night: The night certainly was full of terrors. At first I felt hungry af, then nauseous af. Couldn't even lay down properly. Then I got cold af, never been so cold, not even when fasting. Then I got really light-headed and dizzy and it felt like I was floating and twirling around. Later at night I got extreme pains all over my body and cramps to my jaw/ tongue and I have to say 12/10 not something I want to experience ever again.

I'm absolutely afraid of fruit now but for different reasons. Those things are pure evil!

Positive: Easiest BM ever. :D

DAY 2: Vegetables only, no potatoes
BREAKFAST

SW: 156.6 lbs
CW: 158.0 lbs (+1.4 lbs)

16 hours fasting period.

I'm laughing my butt off with the first day results! Beni lost 2 lbs the first day. Well, it's water weight from all the sugar. Situation should be corrected today.

Breakfast today: 3 tiny snacking carrots, pureed vegetables and rooibos.

DAY 2: LUNCH

Went for a 1.5 hrs walk after breakfast. For lunch I had steamed broccoli, cauliflower and herbal salt. Yum yum. A lot of food, not so many calories!

Looks extremely sad though!

DAY 2: DINNER

My very sad dinner of few tiny carrots, 1 yellow bell pepper and cherry tomatoes blended into a smoothie/ juice. I'm not a fan of tomato juice at all but as Beni blended tomatoes into a smoothie, I decided to give it a try and it's actually not bad at all!

I don't even want to think of eating broccoli or cauliflower at this point. Going to puree them tomorrow so that I can get them down.

At least I'm not hungry one bit.

DAY 2 TOTAL INTAKE

I had total 298 calories
Carbs 46g
Protein 19g
Fat 12g
Fiber 16g

Steps: 20 091 (my feet passionately hate me)

Today's been much better than yesterday. I haven't been hungry and I just feel better overall. I still feel very tired and eating plain vegetables has me eating very little. This diet has certainly made me appreciate all the food groups I'm missing here.

DAY 3, vegetables and fruit only, no potatoes or bananas
BREAKFAST

SW: 156.6
Day 2: 158.0
Day 3: 156.6

Total: ± 0.0 lbs :D

Fasting period only a 13.5 hours.


This diet is SOOOO efficient!

Anyway, today's breakfast is an apple and kiwifruit. And mint green tea! My only fruit left, I froze the others after the horrors of day 1. I can use them in small doses for smoothies or something. After breakfast it's time to go for a walk again. Aiming for that 20k steps!

 

Edit: This diet is sort of like a cleanse as it works like a laxative. I can tell you, absolutely no constipation! :o

DAY 3: LUNCH

 

I was feeling extremely weak, lethargic and just sick, I think I got heart palpitations or something too. So, I broke the rules and I had a protein pudding for lunch just to have a little bit more sustenance in me than few pieces of broccoli. I also found I had 1 more kiwifruit so that's my lunch

  • 180 g protein pudding
  • 1 kiwifruit

Sorry, no picture this time. I just inhaled the food, didn't act fast enough to get pics.

DAY 3: Dinner with failure

 

I just continued feeling way too weak, sick and nauseous and so I decided to eat some proper food. I made 2 mini tortillawraps with a little bit of tuna and loads of vegetables. No salsa, cheese, nothing else, just veggies and small amount of tuna and those 2 tiny tortillas (equal 1 medium size I think). It was complete fail and not following the diet but I just felt way too sick to function. I have no idea how people do these broccoli-diets.

 

I'm not eating anything more today and I will continue GM diet tomorrow with banana day! For one day in my life I want to have that true Freelee experience! :lol: (Most likely will regret it deeply though).

 

Adding daily intake stats later after I'm done exercising!

I had total 693 calories
Carbs 85g
Protein 45g
Fat 14g
Fiber 15g

Steps: 20 075 (my feet and legs just want to murder me by now).

 

I felt much better and normal after I had more intake and especially variety of food and not just steamed broccoli. I could even do plenty of my studies. I'm soooo scared of tomorrow's banana fest!

DAY 4: 6L/ 8S bananas and 3 glasses of skim milk
BREAKFAST

SW: 156.6
Day 2: 158.0
Day 3: 156.6
Day 4: 155.0 (yippeee finally)

Total: -1.6 lbs

Fasting period 17 hrs


Freelee day!! But the best thing ever is... Milk. Because it means I can finally have coffee! <3

This Freelee had her banana fried for breakfast instead of raw. Beni had 1-2 fried bananas for dinner so I assume it's ok. I did use some butter for frying it but no sugar or honey.

I have HUGE bananas, so I might not even eat 6 of them. I think 3 might be enough. I don't want a sugar poisoning like I got the first day.

DAY 4: LUNCH

I had a banana protein shake with added fiber for lunch. Protein powder is NOT on the diet but I just couldn't drink basically pure liquid sugar. That's why I also added a lot of fiber supplement to the shake. The shake was insanely sweet!

I also had a second mug of coffee. So I'm done with my 3 glasses of milk for today. I can still have 4 bananas if I want to but I kinda don't. We'll see.

DAY 4 TOTAL INTAKE

I had total 621 calories
Carbs 88g
Protein 52g (big part is from added protein powder)
Fat 11g
Fiber 6g + fiber supplement

Steps: 20 139 (exhausted!)

 

I ate only 2 bananas, I couldn't have any more. Those were huge bananas though, like a size of 1.5-2 normal ones. After the second banana (milkshake) I felt very nauseous, dizzy, sleepy and just sick. Very thirsty too, my body probably wanting to flush all that sugar out of my bloodstream. After some hours I started to feel a bit better, thankfully. I'm absolutely not a fan of these high sugar days. 

 

I'm sooooooooo thankful tomorrow is meat and tomato day. Finally some real, hot food.

Day 2: 158.0
Day 3: 156.6
Day 4: 155.0

Lost total of 2lbs in 5 days on a diet that promises 20lbs loss in 7 days LOL.
I'm soooo thankful for day 5. Finally some real food.

For breakfast I had some low fat turkey sausages and cherry tomatoes (same amount as 1 medium sized tomato). I fried them with garlic but didn't eat the garlic. It gave a nice flavor anyway. I basically inhaled the food, I was so happy I could've cried.

DAY 5: DINNER (very early)

My very sad and lonely dinner! It is delicious thought.

I just completed 10k indoor jog and noticed that I'm retaining water like insane. I mean I've had like 4-5 cups of water and nothing is coming out. My fingers are so swollen they hurt and I can't literally put my hand to fist.

I've had this happen to me before. If you exercise hard when your body is very stressed, it can respond like this. It can retain loads of water in just minutes.

I have to stop exercising for today and maybe tomorrow too. I have to relax as much as possible. Lay down, breathe, anything it takes. But unless the retention releases, the weight will be very bad tomorrow. Just so that you know. It's not the diet. It's the over exercise and excess stress.
