  1. i have been following this diet as said for 4 days and this is my 5th day. I am not able to go walking but I do abs for 10min. I am worried that so far I have not lost 1 pound also. I weigh the same as before. Any suggestion please

  2. This plan really works. I weighed 165lbs before, knowing that my IBW for my height is only 142lbs. I did this diet plan for 3 cycles and I lost 26 lbs. I know it’s hard but once you’ve set your goals and objectives, you’ll enjoy this diet more than you’ll ever know :) oh just a tip, don’t weigh until the 7th day. Weigh after the 7th day first thing in the morning and you’ll see the surprising results :) good luck! And don’t forget to change your whole wardrobe after :D

  3. To the person above whom said after the 4th ft they had yet to lose ANY WEIGHT?!? Really?!? I’m shocked! You should really speak to your doctor, my fiancé actually stopped on the 5th day bc he shed 10 pounds by then and really didnt want to page any more lol! I did all 7 days and lost 16 the first time we did the GM Diet & tomorrow I start my second time around. I waited 3 weeks in between. My sister lost 12 poinds total, my froend lost 10 pounds…Bc of our success we hace passed it along to more ppl tha j could possiby mention haha! You should talk to a doctor there is a reason it’s not working for you.

    What more is there to know?? This diet was recommended to me by my doctor, it is Mayo Clinic approved and it WORKS! I wanted to shed these darn 30 pounds I gained during a heavy depression and thanks to the lovely corporate beasts I am able to in a 2 month period! After this is the easy part of maintaining…simply live a healthy & active lifestyle and you won’t gain any of the weight lost back! I lost 65 pounds 11 years ago and never put it back I until this intense doubt of depression. And it will never happen again! Anyoe needing to lose weight, trust this diet, IT WORKS!!

    • You have been given a recipe for the WONDER SOUP which can be eaten in unlimited quantities. This soup is a supplement while you are on the program and it should be a pleasure to eat. Not everyone likes cabbage, green peppers, calory etc. This recipe is not inflexible. You may substitute vegetables according to your taste. You may add any vegetables you like: asparagus, peas, corn, turnips, green beans, cauliflower, etc. Try to stay away from beans (lima, pinto, kidney, etc.), however, because they tend to be high in calories even though they are very good for you.
