When we heard this diet will make you lose weight, and that also 10-17 pounds – my husband and I were curious. GM diet, yes…it is ‘General Motors’ diet. We were wondering what in the world this giant in car making has to do with diet. Let me tell you that story. I am not going into the details of its origin, name, effectiveness…and all. You can get all that information from the web. I am not affiliated with anything or this should not be considered as any recommendation. I am telling our personal story of GM diet experience.
