GM Diet: Lose Weight in 7 Days

The GM Diet is officially known as the General Motors Diet, but it turns out that auto company has no knowledge of the diet named after them.

When a New York Times journalist did some research, it seems that there is no real connection between the General Motors company and the diet:

So I called Tom Wilkinson, a G.M spokesman. He confessed he’d never heard of the diet, but was kind enough to do some research, going through all the board meetings from the 1980s. “We’ve concluded it’s an urban myth,” he told me. “It’s a fairly unconventional diet, and in the 1980s G.M. was the most conventional of companies.”

The 7-Day GM diet is definitely unconventional and restrictive. It’s a vegetarian fruit and vegetable detox cleanse for the first few days. After that, you incorporate some other oils, milk, and rice into your diet for the rest of the week. There are also some versions that do incorporate lean meat.

Because it’s so low-calorie, many doctors and nutritionists recommend against it. However, since it is short term, it is similar to doing a juice fast or a detox cleanse for 3-7 days. Some people who have tried this diet have reported losing 4-7 pounds in one week.
