The GM Diet

Originally uploaded by Strumpet101

I’m on another GM at the moment. Another GM diet that is. We (meaning hubbie & I) have been doing it every six months or so.

If you want to find out about the specifics of the diet, you can read it here:

And, yes, GM stands for General Motors of all things.

It’s amazing to me how many people have really really strong and unsolicited opinions about 1-week cleansing diets. Everyone has one they think is better. A lot of people say: “oh! Don’t do that X, Y, or Z is much healthier/better/sustainable/ethical.” Or something to that effect.

The thing is, we researched a BUNCH of cleansing diets before we settled on this one. We chose it because it FITS us. It might not fit everyone’s lifestyle, beliefs, or diet choices, but it works for us. It works because it’s doable, we feel great after a week on it, and even better: we lose a little bit of weight and shrink our stomachs enough to keep our portion sizes reasonable for a few weeks again after being on it.

I’m not saying it’s perfect, but it works for me … and I might moan a lot while on it (especially the first 3 days), but I feel great when finished!

Today will be tough – this apple is about to become my breakfast. Today is all fruit and veges … third day with no meat, and only one little potato for carbs yesterday. But tomorrow, I get to have beef. Lovely lovely beef. Then I’ll stop being so grumpy!
