Ok, so I was finally coerced to try going into a diet again by my wife. My weight has plateaued in the 200lbs figure but a lot of people has stated that I look like pufferfish so off I go again into a week-long General Motors Weight Loss Diet. I already went through this last year which was pure pain for a voracious eater like me but then again I lost around 10 pounds in a week which is pretty nifty. Even if I don’t lose any pounds then it is still alright since this is also a cleansing diet, especially the dreaded fourth day wherein I can only take bananas and milk. Ok, replace milk with yogurt since I am lactose intolerant and I don’t want to spend the whole day in the thinking throne. 😉

I decided to blog about it because I read in a getting-it-done blog that it helps to blog something if you need some extra boost in achieving your goals. Even if you don’t have any readers then it would still instill a fear of failure since nobody wants to be a failure in the public eye. I might even use the bitesize blog (located in the far right of this blog) to post some mid-day updates.

So here it goes::)

Day 0: Weighed-in at 200lbs. Still feeling normal. We still have that Shakey’s pizza to finish for dinner. 🙂

General Motors Diet for Day 1

All fruits except bananas. Your first day will consist of all the fruits you want. It is strongly suggested that you consume lots of melons the first day. Especially watermelon and a loupe. If you limit your fruit consumption to melons, your chances of losing three lbs. on first day are very good.

How and Why it works

You are preparing your system for the upcoming programme. Your only source of nutrition is fresh or canned fruits. Fruits are nature’s perfect food. They provide everything you could possibly want to sustain life except total balance and variety.

Unfortunately I hate melons (except watermelon) due to a early childhood psychological event. 🙂

ciao!
