You can eat all sorts of vegetables on the Day 2 of the GM Diet and there is nothing to avoid in the veg-section.
By eating vegetables, you’ll be getting more fiber and they also help in regulating the sugar content which is deposited on the Day 1. Here are a few GM Diet vegetarian recipes you can try on the day 2.
How to Prepare Your Body for GM Diet Day 2?
Unlike the first day where you would feel lightheaded due to less intake of carbohydrates, Day 2 would make you feel much better.
So, you should eat more Melon for the dinner on Day 1 so that the energy you gain from eating the dinner will last long until the second day of the diet.
Unlike in day 1 where you’re restricted to eating Bananas, on Day 2 you can have almost all vegetables even those rich in starch, such as potatoes. The second day routine will give your more energy and you can also perform strenuous activities and HIIT exercises if you wanted to.
Foods to Eat on Day 2 of the GM Diet
Breakfast: Start your breakfast with a large boiled Potato and it would keep your stomach full as well as the body gets energized for the rest of the day. People who live in the tropical countries may consider Cassava or Sweet Potato instead of the regular Potato. However, they should be careful not to add any sugar to the meal.
Lunch: This should be lighter. You can have vegetable salads made of Cucumber, lettuce and Cabbage. You can also dress your salads with Vinaigrette or Olive oil but not to use Mayonnaise as it would add some extra fat.
Dinner: You can have fresh greens that include Broccoli, Cabbage, Lettuce, Asparagus and Cucumber. Additionally, you can have boiled beets but many feel beets to be heavier on their stomach.
Along with these, drink enough water throughout the day.
