First of all, Congratulations for successfully completing the first two days of the GM diet program without cheating.
By now, your sweet cravings and hunger pangs will be reduced and it will be easier for you to handle the day 3 of GM diet.
You will also feel your body much lighter, glow in your face and no headaches whatsoever as you got used to the diet schedule by now.
The GM diet day 3 comprises of both fruits and vegetables, but with some restrictions.
On this day, you’re allowed to eat all varieties of fruits and vegetables in any combination of your choice, excluding the Bananas and Potatoes.
How to Prepare Your Body for Day 3 of GM Diet?
Like you’ve already done, you should have eaten good dinner on day 2.
Eating more energetic vegetables for yesterday’s dinner would give you good energy to start the day 3.
Have a good night’s sleep of at least 7 to 8 hours and when you wake up, try to perform light exercises like Yoga Asanas, Pranayama or breathing exercises and meditation. Doing so will ease your tensions and add additional benefit to your weight loss journey.
Since your body is already used to eating fruits and veggies, the 3rd day of General motors diet would be much easier.
You should also say goodbye to Potatoes on Day 3 because you’ll get the required carbohydrates from the fruit.
Now, your system is fully prepared to shed those excess calories from Day 3 onward. You’ll still have light food cravings on the Day 3 as well but those will be diminished by the time you reach to Day 4.
