Is the GM Diet Safe and Recommended?

The General Motors diet may look good on paper but it’s not recommended. This is a diet plan which restricts your food choices dramatically and may cause nutritional deficiencies and metabolic slowdown. While you may lose a few pounds during your week on the GM diet, this is likely to be mostly water weight. You will probably gain it all back quickly once you go back to eating your regular food. It’s not a lifestyle change eating plan and so it’s unlikely to be a long term solution.
