“My Name is Javed Khan. I am a senior executive at a IT company in Bangalore. Few years back I used to weigh around 70 to 72 kg, but due constant work pressure and sedentary life style I put on some extra 5 to 6 kg and was finding it difficult getting the weight down to around 70 kg.
I tried some regimes on my own and failed. Got to know about the FITHO weight loss program. Was hesitant at first but after going through some testimonials posted on the site I took a shot at the program. Before the program I used to weigh around 76 to 78 kg. I started with a one month program. I was assigned a dietician who studied my current diet regime and exercise patterns and recommended a diet and exercise plan for each week.
I usually had a feeling that any diet plan would required skipping meals or eating very less. But the diet plan recommended surprised me. It was prepared keeping in mind my existing diet patterns. I thoroughly followed the program as per the plan set forth by dietician and it really did wonders. At the end of one month I weighed around 74 a reduction of close to 3 to 4 kg.
Impressed with this I again continued with the plan for one more month and my weight further reduced to 70 + kg. At the end of two months I weighed around 70 to 71 kg.
I was very impressed with the diet which was provided. It was in line with my regular diet. The dietician saw it that I am not deprived of things I like in my diet. Even the exercises where very comfortable. At the end of first month there was big difference in my looks. The only areas of improvement where the pot belly and love handles. Hence my exercise plan was changed and special exercises for these two regions were included. These new exercised helped reduce the fat around the regions.I would personally recommend the FITHO Weight loss program for anyone who is finding it difficult to lose weight.But you need to follow the plan completely for getting the desired results.”
The GM Diet known as the General Motors Diet is a fad diet for quick weight loss program that involves consumption of specific foods per day. The diet itself is very simple. It is a seven day program with very strict restrictions on what can be eaten on each day. This program is designed for a target weight loss of 5-6 Kg per week, while this is an ideal number an average person can look at losing 2-3 kg in a week from this diet. At the same time however, this diet plan may prove to be overwhelming to first time users, as it involves radical change of diet intake that consists mainly of raw fruits and vegetables and reduced limited protein intake.
Here is the day-wise menu for the seven day GM diet plan:
Day One – You are allowed to eat all the fresh fruit you want, with the exception of bananas, which are not allowed. Do not substitute fresh fruit for fruit juice, you are required to eat the whole fruit. Fruits like watermelon are usually recommended in summer and oranges in winter.
Day Two – This is a raw vegetable day. With breakfast as the only exception where you can start the day with a large baked potato with one table spoon of butter. After that, you have to eat any raw or slightly steam it vegetables, but no added salt or sauces. Fruits are strictly not allowed on Day Two.
Day Three – Here you combine day one and day two diet minus bananas or potatoes. You are allowed to eat a mixture of fruit and vegetables of your choice, in any quantity all through the day.
Day Four – you will have bananas and milk. You can eat up to eight bananas and three glasses of milk. For lunch and dinner you add a bowl of soup each. A special soup made from tomatoes, cabbage onions, green peppers, celery and water is advised. This can be consumed in any desired quantity from day 4 onwards.
Day Five – First day of adding protein in the form of beef to the diet. You can have a total of 20 ounces of lean beef, and six whole tomatoes in addition to any vegetable soup.
