The GM diet is a 7 day diet plan that has been tried out by many people with great success. This diet is different from other diets in that it does not require you to take supplements. It consists of eating only natural produce. The goal of the diet is to alter your eating habits and lose excess pounds.
So you know what to do but how does it actually work? Is it actually effective? Does it have side effects? It seems so simple. You have a diet plan and you follow it strictly, no exercise required, no supplements necessary. While there are some dieticians that call this a weight loss fad diet and say that it doesn’t produce long term effects, testimonies from people around the world tell you a different story.
Even dieticians agree that this type of diet resembles other detoxification diets. So while you’re not eating unhealthy fats, carbohydrates and proteins for the first few days, your body is flushing out the toxins and getting cleansed. This is not something that the diet starts, your body already does it, but as you no longer have any intake of these toxins your body can do it easily and will not be overworked. The diet just helps the natural processes. The followers of the diet are advised to drink up to 2 liters of water per day, which is enough for the digestion of the food that they consume and to keep the cleaning systems running.
Regular detoxification will result in faster digestion, regular bowel movement and eventually, weight loss.
The two important aspects of the GM diet are the kind of food intake and the amount of water you take with it.
The foods that you consume each day in the diet are high fiber fruits and low sugar vegetables. These are known to speed up the digestion as nutrition from them is easily absorbed in the digestive tract.
The increase in the intake of water is to compensate for the high fiber foods that you eat. They need a lot of water to dissolve the nutrients. Regularly drinking water increases the efficiency of the whole digestive process. So the person who is on this diets gets all the nutrients and at the same time the body uses up its reserve energy (fat) through their metabolism.
Regular Bowel Movement
One of the many reasons many people are overweight is because of the excessive carbohydrates and other non-essential minerals getting stored in the body. These include some elements that are not completely digested and have to be removed from the body. The high fiber diet helps remove this excessive waste with ease. Doing this regularly will improve the working of the digestive system. Bowel problems like constipation and LBM can also be avoided with a high fiber diet.
All the effects mentioned above all add to a loss in excess fat in the body which results to a fast loss in weight. The GM diet not only helps in losing weight but also helps you maintain a healthier and cleaner lifestyle. If you are persistent with the diet plan then you will eventually get in control of your cravings and not be a slave to them. You can then enjoy your life in a more healthier and natural manner.
