One of my favorite diet plans (and one of the most popular) is the gm diet plan – or the General Motors diet plan (3). Yes – the same general motors as the car manufacturer. I know, it’s weird, lets’ move on. This gm diet plan works for all age groups, and people have lost up to 17 pounds in a single week by following it. If you want to follow it, you have to be prepared. This is a strict diet plan – and it requires a lot of discipline on your part. If you want it to work, and you want to lose up to 17 pounds in a week, you’re going to have to have your mind right before you start.
Eat at least 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight, daily. If your protein intake is too low on a restricted-calorie diet, you'll lose a lot of muscle in addition to any fat you're lucky enough to shed. A high-protein intake will help you preserve lean mass during your dieting phase. Choose lean, high-quality proteins like egg whites, poultry, lean red meat, and protein supplements. The diet provided here contains about 220-250g of protein daily, fine for a male weighing 200-250lbs. Up your protein only if you're heavier than 250lbs, or you're very hungry and need to add food during the day. Juge suggests an additional protein shake for an easy quick fix. (If you're under 180lbs, cut out 3oz of meat or chicken per day from the diet.)

Weight loss depends on a number of factors – genes, current weight, muscle mass, and how long you have been on the GM diet. Sustaining the GM diet is challenging. If you give in to cravings while on the diet, you may not see any results. Also, do not be on the GM diet continuously. It can slow down your metabolism and prevent you from losing weight.
So I am diabetic, I started this diet last Thursday after running it by my Dr. on Wednesday. He gave the thumbs up. I had received my latest A1C and LDL test results that day. Since stopping my Metformin and Atorvastatin in December of 2017, my A1C went from 5.4 to 7.6 and my LDL from 59 to 189 and my weight was up from 250 to 271 so, clearly it's beyond the time I have to do something. Well it's back on the meds and started this diet. I have been monitoring my sugar levels several times a day because of all of the sugar in the fruit and I can tell you, I was worried the first day. I would check my sugar 1 hour after meals and it would be 159, 161, 179 but, then I noticed if I just waited to check it an extra hour later my levels dropped significantly to 139, 107, 118 etc. Today is the start of Day 4 and I just checked my sugar and it's at 94 so, it's doing what it is supposed to do. :) I did cook 2 hardboiled eggs on Day 3 for lunch just because I was feeling like I needed some protein. You know that feeling you get when your body is trying to fight off a cold? That's what it felt like which is probably just normal for a diet detox. My take is it's doing it's job (as long as I do mine). Day 1 was O.K. not easy but, manageable, Day two was pretty easy actually, Day 3 was pretty easy as well except for the "run-down" feeling. I have been looking forward to today for it's HUMP DAY!! I get milk and bananas!! My tips so far are: Make the Soup on Day 1 because you can eat the soup everyday. The recipe makes a lot so I portioned it out and froze it. When I wanted a bowl I just popped it in the microwave. Each time I would add a little different spice...one may be adding some Cumin for a Taco Soup flavor, another may be adding some turmeric and curry or some Italian Herbs. That way I didn't get bored with eating the same thing every time. On veggie days I would make them into a stir fry with just 1 TBS of olive oil. I'm not sure if you can use Soy Sauce so, I didn't. I don't like just plain baked potatoes so, I did sprinkle on some powdered butter.....like you add to pop-corn. It wasn't the same but, it gave that false sense of creaminess without the added fat. I don't know if I have lost any weight or not. I have not exercised at all. I'm assuming I would have to be losing something though because I'm definitely eating less of the bad carbs and fat and calories. My plan is to do the 7 days with 3 off days after where I just eat regular healthy meals that are high in protein and low in carbs and fat and then back on the 7 day plan. I'm hoping for a 20lb loss a month goal but, I'm not good at keeping long term goals so, that's why I chose the 7 day goal. I can stick with almost anything for 7 days. :)

Also known as Branch Chain Amino Acids. BCAAs are three amino acids known as Leucine, Valine and Iso-Leucine. They help prevent muscle breakdown and can be bought as yummy flavoured powders to use in place as sports drinks. Drink them during your fat burning workout instead of water as they will help you tone up as you lose that belly and may even help in the formation of abdominal muscles.
Make a protein-rich dinner with grilled pork chops and asparagus. Heat one teaspoon olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Season a three-ounce pork chop with salt and pepper. Place it in the pan and cook it for three to five minutes per a side. Serve with ½ cup mashed potatoes, one cup steamed or baked asparagus, and ½ cup bell pepper strips. Top the meal off with ½ cup fresh raspberries.
As a result of all your planning and preparation, all you have to do is toss your meals together when you’re ready to eat! Do you know what else I absolutely love about this 30-day weight loss meal plan? All of the recipes are completely delicious! Every single day is packed full of flavor and you get to enjoy foods like pizza and creamy sauces in addition to an optional snack and dessert each day.
Everything has its perfect time, if you believe in this saying then your right. Remember how you were told not to eat bananas on the first three days? Well on the 4th day of the vegetarian diet for losing weight, you have the liberty to eat up to 6 bananas for the whole day. You can drink up to 4 glasses of milk. You must have heard that bananas help in weight gain, however in this diet, they act as a source of potassium and sodium for the body. Since the intake of salt is reduced, bananas will do the job.

Try a protein heavy meal like a bean tortilla with gazpacho. Warm up a two-ounce wheat tortilla in the microwave or on the stove and fill it with ½ cup cooked black beans, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, two tablespoons shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, and half an avocado, sliced. Serve it with one cup of ready-made gazpacho or salsa. Finish with a one-ounce piece of dark chocolate for dessert.
I'm not telling you that it's easy, but it really is pretty simple. In an age where people don't even have to go outside to grill a steak, it's tempting to spend a few dollars on a quick fix. Human anatomy hasn't changed much throughout history, however. If you adopt your grandparents' work ethic and apply it to your every day life, you will achieve your greatest results.

If you want to lose a small amount of weight quickly, you should do so effectively and safely, no matter your reason for wanting to shed pounds. However, you can safely shed weight from retained water and waste, and lose 5 lbs. (2.3 kg) or more within one day. Be aware, though, that this process cannot be safely repeated for more than one day (i.e. you cannot safely lose 15 pounds in three days), and the weight that you lose in one day is likely to return quickly. It is smart to maintain a healthy body weight, and weight loss should be combined with long-term lifestyle changes, like eating healthy and exercising.

Sure, ketchup is tasty, but it's also a serious saboteur when it comes your weight loss efforts. Ketchup is loaded with sugar — up to four grams per tablespoon — and bears little nutritional resemblance to the fruit from which it's derived. Luckily, swapping out your ketchup for salsa can help you shave off that belly fat at home without a diet. Fresh tomatoes, like those used in salsa, are loaded with lycopene, which a study conducted at China Medical University in Taiwan links to reductions in both overall fat and waist circumference. If you like your salsa spicy, all the better; the capsaicin in hot peppers, like jalapeños and chipotles, can boost your metabolism, too.

Many television ads are now pitching devices that supposedly stimulate muscles to contract repeatedly without exercise. I even saw an infomercial for an "ab belt" that claimed it does the work of 700 sit-ups in 10 minutes! The ad shows people doing various abdominal exercises the wrong way, hating every second of it, versus smiling men and women going about their days with "Ab-whatevers" strapped around them. How enticing!
Make instant oatmeal and add in dried fruit and nuts for a healthy, fiber packed breakfast. Add 1 ⅓ cup fat-free milk to two packets of instant oatmeal (look for no sugar added oatmeal). Cook it according to the package directions in the microwave or the stove. Once it's cooked, mix in two tablespoons dried cranberries and one tablespoon chopped walnuts.
Going long periods of time without food does double-duty harm on our healthy eating efforts by both slowing down your metabolism, and priming you for another binge later in the day. (Think: You've skipped breakfast and lunch, so you're ready to takedown a whole turkey by dinner!) Make it your mission to eat three meals and two snacks every day, and don't wait longer than three to four hours without eating. Set a "snack alarm" on your phone if needed.
It’s important to do full-body strength training if you want to lose belly fat—especially if you’re trying to keep it off for the long haul. “Strength training should be a part of just about everybody’s exercise plan,” says Dr. Cheskin. That’s because strength training helps you build muscle, which will replace body fat. And because muscle is metabolically active, you'll continue to burn calories after working out, thereby, reducing overall body fat. Bonus: When your metabolic rate becomes faster due to muscle growth, you’ll have a little more wiggle room in your diet if that’s something you struggle with, says Dr. Cheskin.

Increasing your daily physical activity could help you lose weight faster and burn extra calories. Your overall daily activities impact your fitness level to a great extent and also helps combat obesity and weight-loss. If you're doing a desk job as compared to a manual job, your sedentary work life could mean that you're unable to burn up to 1,000 calories per day. This amounts to the same as 90-120 minutes of high-intensity exercise at the gym. You could incorporate simple lifestyle changes such as walking or cycling to nearby destinations, taking stairs instead of elevators, standing more often or even helping out in household chores. You'd be surprised at the calories you could burn by following these simple changes.

Many people struggle with weight loss issues. Losing belly fat in particular is about more than just aesthetics: visceral fat, the kind of fat that tends to settle around the midsection, can cause an increase in your body's production of stress hormones that can affect your body's insulin production. As a result, excess belly fat can lead to serious complications like type 2 diabetes and heart disease.[1] There is no way to target belly fat, but diet and exercise will eventually burn off belly fat. Knowing how to take the first step can help you feel better and get you on the road to a healthier, more active lifestyle.


DO IT: Assume a pushup position with your hands below your shoulders and your body forming a straight line from your head to your heels. This is the starting position. Lifting your right foot off of the floor, drive your right knee towards your chest. Tap the floor with your right foot and then return to the starting position. Alternate legs with each repetition.

Add a cup of low-fat milk, a part-skim mozzarella stick, or a half cup of low-sodium cottage cheese to breakfast, and you may have a belly-busting win. While lots of research links calcium with lower body weights, results from a 2014 study suggest that calcium-containing foods may reduce waist circumference in those genetically predisposed to carrying weight in their midsection.

“Under normal conditions, humans absorb only about 80% of the nutrients from the food they eat,” says A. Roberto Frisancho, Ph.D., a weight-loss researcher at the University of Michigan. But, he says, when the body is deprived of nourishment, it becomes a super-efficient machine, pulling what nutrients it can from whatever food is consumed. Start eating again normally and your body may not catch up; instead it will continue to store food as fat.

In fact, researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center found that every 10-gram daily increase in soluble fiber was associated with a 3.7 percent decrease in dangerous visceral fat over five years. Those who were active got even leaner, shaving off twice that much fat in the same amount of time. To start ditching that extra belly fat today, add the best high-fiber foods to your menu!


So I’m thinking about doing this diet. My daily diet for several years has consisted of eating every 3 hours, no more than 200 calories per meal, and about 100 calories for snacks. I eat very little as it is and hesitant to this diet being a success. Please help with some positive feedback. If I lose 15 to 20 pounds, I will have reached my wit loss goal.
When one is losing weight, people tend to shed their bad eating habits and exercise daily, something which was not part of their routine before. Surely, the regime will not be as crucial as before, but if the same life style is not maintained, it would be easier to slip back in to bad habits and gain the kilos which were shed. Balanced diet containing carbohydrates (55%), fats (25%) and proteins (20%) in the food. Exercising everyday will not be off the books either, as said earlier, it will not be as extreme as before, but it is important to exercise any at least half an hour each day for five days in a week, so weight can be maintained successful. It is easy to let yourself go after a goal has been reached, but letting go of exercise routine will result in a big setback.
I am a registered dietitian and nutritionist. My focus is to promote whole food nutrition, so you will not find any weight-loss medicines or supplements in this diet plan. The only things you need to lose weight are healthy, fresh food from your local market. I own a nutrition clinic where I provide healthy eating and exercise counseling to families to help young children maximise their growth and health potential. I know all about the weight-loss pills on the market. Most of them are unhealthy and cause nausea, diarrhea, and other serious symptoms.
Instead of satisfying your sweet tooth with some refined sugar, turn to berries and enjoy a slimmer waistline in no time without exercise. Berries are loaded with antioxidants, which can help reduce inflammation throughout the body, and research from the University of Michigan reveals that rats given a cherry-rich diet shaved off a significant proportion of their belly fat when compared to a control group. Berries like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries are also loaded with resveratrol, an antioxidant pigment that has been linked to reductions in belly fat and a reduced risk of dementia, to boot. 

Amy L is here!!!!!! Started out on July 22nd 168lbs, today? I am 158lbs. It worked and I’m so happy. I initially did not realize your meal plans were for multiple servings so the first two days I ate A LOT until I noticed (5/6 servings etc). Anyway I’m happy it worked and also one thing I added was not eating actual food after 6pm. I only ate fruits or vegetables after 6pm if I was ever hungry. I plan to continue this meal plan until I hit my goal weight which is my pre-babies weight 145lbs. I’ll be back on September 23 to report my new weight. Hopefully it’ll be 145 or something close to that. Thank you so much for this plan
I have now lost 17 pounds with garcinia cambogia (I hope to lose another 15 pounds or so.) I have not followed any diet plan and have been pretty much eating what I want. I have cut out soda and have been drinking only water. I do not buy potato chips because I am not good at portion control with them. I did splurge a little during the holidays but did not put on any weight. I have not done any aerobic exercise. Hope to add indoor biking soon. This product works for me and it can work for you too. I followed advice from here:
Identify your food triggers and plan accordingly. Everyone has food triggers, so don’t feel bad about craving certain foods. Cut back on these foods by figuring out the things that trigger your cravings, like a certain activity, a time of day, or feeling certain emotions. Then, plan for better ways to handle those triggers, and don’t keep these foods around your home or workplace. This can help you avoid giving into temptation.[6]

Eat regular meals or snacks every 2-4 hours. Skipping meals isn’t the answer to losing weight, and it may even derail your efforts. Food gives you energy, so going too long without eating can leave you feeling tired, which decreases your activity level. Additionally, it triggers your body to crave high-calorie, high-sugar snacks for a quick energy boost. Instead of starving yourself, plan frequent, healthy meals.[3]

“Most people who have been lean their whole lives have a much better understanding of proper portion size than people who are overweight,” says Deborah Riebe, Ph.D., a professor in the department of kinesiology at the University of Rhode Island. “If they go out to eat, they’re much more likely to ask for a doggie bag right away or to leave food on their plate rather than cleaning it up.”
Consider them “good carbs”. Their bulk takes up space in your stomach, helping you feel full and eat less. The top fiber food: beans, which contain 8g per 1/2 cup. Research shows that guys who added 12g of fiber a day to their diet lost a quarter of an inch from their love handles, without otherwise modifying their diet. Here are some of the best sources.
