What is G.M. Diet???
It was developed around 1985 by ‘General Motors’ for its employees. Main motive of planning such a diet was keeping the workforce healthy and hence increasing the productivity of the organisation. Impressive results came out of this development, workers were able to reduce 10-12 pounds of weight which eventually resulted in increasing the efficiency and energy of the workers.
It is not difficult to follow G.M.Diet plan. The effectiveness of the GM diet should also be supplemented by a regular exercise routine.
What needs to be done!
