GM Diet Day 5 | General Motors Diet

If you’ve successfully completed the Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4 of GM diet program, then you’ll find the Day 5 menu pretty interesting as it satisfies your taste buds.

On the 5th day of GM Diet, you’re only allowed to eat beef with tomatoes if non-vegetarian and brown rice with tomatoes if vegetarian.

The first four days will lack protein and you may feel some muscle weakness during that period.

But, as beef contains lots of proteins and iron + tomatoes contain fibers and lycopene, consuming these two will help you gain all the proteins and fiber required for your body.

You can substitute beef with either Chicken (500gms skinless) or Fish (500 gms) or Pork (500 gms) or Eggs (6). Read the GM diet for India guide for details on the food choices for Indians.

How to Prepare for 5th Day of GM Diet?

Due to lack of appetite, you’re advised to eat small servings of beef multiple times during the day. It is because the large servings will make the appetite worse.

So, it is a wise idea to combine beef with tomatoes and satisfy your taste buds.

Breakfast: Start your day with braised beef or chicken breast and tomato soup. While the meat gives your proteins, iron and fiber, soup on the other end provides energy.

Lunch: You can have a homemade hamburger made with beef/chicken. It may be either baked or fried but remember not to add too much fat as it already contains fat. At this stage, your body will produce excess uric acid and so it is advised to have lots of water (3-4 glasses) so that the urine will be flushed out naturally.

Dinner: You can have another hamburger during the dinner. However, health experts suggest that you should have beef/chicken soup and tomatoes in order to energize your body. Another advantage of having a soup is that it supplements the loss of water during the day.

Snacks: On this day, you shouldn’t eat any snacks or have fruit juices. The only beverage you’ll be having on Day 5 GM diet is water. Drink at least 14 glasses of water today so that it will detoxify your system as well as get rid of those unwanted nutrients that were contributed by meat.
