o General Motors Diet, commonly known as GM diet was originally developed for employees and dependents of General Motors, Inc. and was intended for their exclusive use in the 1980’s. The GM diet makers also believed that it would improve attitudes and emotions because of its cleansing effects in the body. The seven day plan is though to burn more calories than the body receives. Theoretically, yes. But the human system is rather is rather complicated. The diet contains no alcohol, compulsorily 10 glasses of water per day.

On the positive side, General Motors diet is good for a week if done once in a blue moon to cleanse the system. However, naturopathy medicine does not allow any kind of meat for cleansing the human system. Only those who can withstand the low energy intake should go for it. On the negative side, when on such a low energy diet the body tends to hold back the fat reserve and burns muscle for energy that is requirement for daily activity. The second and subsequent attempts at weight loss become more and more difficult because the basic rate at which the body burns calories (BMR) slows down. Following this diet repeatedly can deplete the body of energy and some important nutrients when needed. Unfortunately, we can’t supply nutrients in installments on different days for the body because the functioning of all nutrients is interrelated. Many followers of GM diet have steadily gained back their weight.
