With the arrival of summer (it is now a matter of a few months), it comes also the usual appointment: the test suit!
During the winter we eat many things, perhaps without too much care about the calories. In winter we are totally covered, in addition to having rightly need more calories and more food in order to better withstand the low temperatures.
Shortly before the arrival of summer, people start the race for the costume fitting, to be perfect on the beach.
Some have their tricks: some make long and dangerous reckless fasting for health, who began racing kilometers and kilometers (like marathons!), but other luckily start following diets and eating better. But what is a type of diet to follow? What works? The diet should not be seen as a deprivation, but as a lifestyle. So bandits absolutely dangerous and prolonged fasting, but in view of the summer you can also follow the GM diet to detoxify and then lose a few kilo.
I read about this diet on the site Check Pregnancy, site not only about pregnancy but about all women’s health. There is a very good article about this diet.
About the name of the GM diet
Many people think that this name comes from “General Motors”, because the company wanted to improve the diet and health of its employees, but there is no evidence attesting to this fact.
What’s GM diet?
It’s a diet, very popular in India, to be followed for a short time, for exactly 7 days. People that followed this diet reported having lost about from 2 to 7.5kg in a week.
Why is it so followed this diet?
- It does not feel hunger during this diet! In fact there are not great limitations in the quantity of food, so you never feels the stomach cry. This is obviously a huge upside.
- Healthy: as said earlier, the diet should also be detoxifying, to purify the body from toxins accumulated during the winter months.
- It’s gluten-free, high-fiber, low-fat, you must avoid any processed foods and of course absolutely avoid alcohol (it is poison for the body!).
- While purifies and detoxifies the body, you improves the aesthetics too (as they say “beautiful inside, beautiful outside”), especially a beautiful and toned skin.
- It’s an easy diet to follow, there is no need to prepare strange or complex recipes, or go in search of food ever known before.
What are the basic features of the GM diet?
There are various versions of the diet, but all have in common:
- The extensive use of fruit
- The extensive use of vegetables
- A lot of water
- Very little meat
- GM diet cabbage soup: it is a cabbage-based vegetarian soup to eat the 4th and 5th day of the diet
- A light physical activity, which will maximize the results of the diet. But it must be very light, about 15 minutes a day.
The first days are of adjustment, you will probably have some strange symptoms, such as headache, it is normal because if one eats for years and everyday processed foods, high-fat and protein, change to this diet is like going to the contrary.
Of course, you must first ask your doctor, especially if you have health problems.
