GM Diet Plan or General Motors Diet Plan is a venture to lose weight quickly. It works by cutting on belly fat and lower down the carb flab, in a shortest time span possible. It was initiated by General Motors for its employees, instilling them with enhanced health, confidence, efficiency and higher energy. If you are planning to lose weight in a healthy, natural and effective way, you must try this diet plan. You need not stress yourself by starving your body or relentless exercising.
What is the Procedure?
It is a seven days eating plan. It administers your weight loss amounting to around 10-17 Lbs. per week. It also burns more calories than it stores in your body in the form of vitamin & protein induced energy. This approach is commonly known as “cabbage soup diet” or “the sacred heart diet”.
When did it first began?
The plan pioneered in junction with Food & Drug Administration and US Department of Agriculture. The plan was first used in field tests of John Hopkins Research center in 1985.
How is it different from the other diet plans which have influential networks?
It doesn’t work like other health plans backed by influential networks of big companies, such as Venus Factor or the 3-Week diet Plan. They focus solely on health-related benefits, whereas GM diet plan focuses on your personal preferences (amounting to what you CAN eat rather than what you CANNOT eat) in addition to its health program. It is modifiable in its pattern. It is not a restrictive or rigid health-chart; for instance, you can alter it according to the inclusion of vegetarian, non vegetarian, Indian foods choices of your own.
How does the plan work?
It puts your body through the process of detoxification. The diet is mostly an embodiment of 6-8 glasses of water, fruits, vegetable, milk, soup, brown rice, chicken etc. These things lead to the residual of superfluous, toxic and unhealthy contents that lead to sluggishness and strengthen digestion. This method is particularly beneficial for you if you suffer Constipation frequently as it promotes the regular bowel movement. Once you begin to maintain a routine intake of 6-8 glasses of water a day, body wouldn’t feel the necessary need to hold back old toxicated water inside to regulate it’s water-level. The major reason behind its popularity lies in the fact that it is easier to follow. It also doesn’t have any complicated ingredients or diet chart demanding extra time from your personal routine.
Who all can follow it?
A person of any age group above 18 years and below 60 years can follow it on the recommendation of their personal dietician. A menstruating woman can also follow it, but a pregnant woman cannot. Also you need not be involved in any vigorous exercises along with it, such as kickboxing, weightlifting, but a fewer mild ones.
How successful is it?
It is evidently a workable plan as you can find its tutorials and testimonials on YouTube or online elsewhere. Scientific explanation that backs the success of this diet plan is that, the fruits provide our bodies with fiber that aids the digestion. They also prevent the body from feeling hungry fast. It ensures that our body receives all the nutrition that it needs. Chicken is protein inducing and is low on fat. Protein take in brown rice increases metabolic rate and burns more fat. All the food that is suggested is low on sugar and high in fiber, facilitating the mobilizing of stored fat and absorbing nutrition.
