GM Diet Day 1
The GM Diet Day 1 begins the journey of detoxifying, getting rid of impurities and cleaning your whole body and its systems. Remember to always drink plenty of water throughout the 7 days. The first 3 days are the most critical so do not give up even if you may start to feel week or deprived. If you already have monitored health issues such as extreme obesity or diabetes, always consult your physician before embarking on this journey. Try encouraging someone else to do this at the same time you are so that you have a buddy system and keep each other accountable. You may encounter feeling lightheaded as your body adjusts to the lack of carbohydrates on this day. You may also want to view overview videos about the diet here.
What do I eat?
Do: Eat only fresh Fruits (click here for our list of fruits) and drink plenty of water, stay hydrated. If you can, buy from the produce section and not canned. Canned is Ok and will work. It doesn’t have quite as many nutrients as fresh or organic produce.
Try to drink 1-2 glasses of water each meal and 8- 10 for the day. Each as much fruit as you like (see the special note below). Try adding lemon to your water or some coconut water to satisfy other cravings. Find fruit that is high in water content like watermelon.
Don’t: Eat bananas (yet) or Avocados and steer away from other fruits high in carbohydrates, potassium or starch.
Breakfast: bowl of watermelon or melons and papaya
Lunch: bowl of cantaloupe or other type of melon or kiwi and mangoes
Snacks: try papaya or muskmelon diced
Dinner: sliced oranges or mix with grapes, pomegranate, pears or a bowl of melon
Eat more for dinner in preparation for Day 2.
Meals can be broken down into smaller portions and more often throughout the day to help sustain energy.

If you’re an exercise enthusiast, do what feels good without overdoing it.
Not into exercise? Try adding 10 – 30 minutes of walking to help give metabolism a boost. Add breathing and stretching. Some people use Yoga. High intensity may not be recommended on Day 1. Replace the high cardio workouts with walking. Strength and weight training is discourage during this week.
Muscles are weaker during this time period and slower to recover than normal which may cause you to feel ill or can be injured more easily.
