How to Prepare Your Body for GM Diet – Day 6?:
At the start of Day 6, you will notice that your appetite is bouncing back to normal. You are likely to feel lighter and energetic in the morning. Today, the agenda is to eat plenty of protein and fiber lost during the previous days. You are allowed to eat a variety of meat dishes (predominantly made with beef, chicken etc.), grilled vegetables, brown rice and of course, the GM Diet Soup.
So prepare your meals ahead of the day to save plenty of time and effort.
GM Diet – Day 6 Sample Meal Plan:
As mentioned earlier, today, you are allowed to consume solid food that can restore normalcy to your system. You can eat a healthy portion of meat like beef, chicken etc. along with vegetables. Vegetarians can replace meat with brown rice, cottage cheese etc. Also, make it a point to eat a heavy breakfast, medium-sized lunch and a light dinner for optimum results.
Here is the Sample GM Diet Plan – Day 6 Indian Version:
Start your day with one or two beef/chicken cutlets, along with a bowl of vegetable salad. You can boil or saute the veggies to make them tasty and digestible. Have 1-2 glasses of water to boost your metabolism.
If you are hungry, have one bowl of the GM Diet Soup. Those who still feel the heaviness from breakfast can have 1 glass of plain water, coconut water or lemon water without added salt, sugar etc.
Make your lunchtime more interesting by preparing a bread-less burger. You can have 1 beef or chicken cutlet with lettuce, grilled vegetables, etc. You can also go for an Asian stir fry with vegetables and beef chunks. But, avoid putting in sauces, MSG or artificial flavoring agents.
Once again, measure your hunger levels and based on that, you can have one bowl of GM diet soup or 1 glass of water.
Keep your dinner light by having one bowl of soup, one or two chicken/beef kebabs with some vegetables.
