Chicken with Tomato – GM Diet Day 5
I have concluded my GM Diet with loss of only 3 kgs.. Whereas, I was hoping to lose around 5 to 6 kgs as cited on their website.. But I am pleased, at least got rid of 3 kgs which is not bad in a week’s time. I started doing some research online regarding this diet, as my weight losing progress was slower than what they have cited..(I know I should have done this research before starting the diet)..
Anyways, I worked out a few things that were not specified on the site, but the authors have answered it to the public query (there are 100’s of questions and I almost browsed all to figure out where I went wrong). Now if I want to do this diet program again, which I can after giving a gap of 2 weeks to 4 weeks, I should be losing more weight as I have more information about it.. Lol…
Day 5 was indicating we need to intake 500 grams chicken (as I did the chicken version diet, you can do the diet with beef or vegetarian or Indian version) and 6 tomatoes for the whole day. I was very skeptical earlier what to do with chicken and tomatoes only, but when I made this recipe in the morning I simply loved it and repeated the same for my lunch and dinner.
I distributed 500 grams chicken in 3 parts approx 160 grams each serving and 2 tomatoes (1 I cooked with chicken and 1 I ate it later like salad). Very simple yet tasty and super fast recipe..
Chicken with Tomatoes – GM Diet
- 160 gms Chicken breast (fat free/skinless) cut in small cubes
- 5 cherry tomatoes or 1 tomato
- ½ tsp cumin seeds
- ½ tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
- 1 tsp paprika
- ½ tsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp garam masala
- Salt to taste
- Fresh coriander
- Take the tomatoes (I used cherry) on the skewer and roast them on the stove and keep aside.
- In a pan (actually I used the stoneware so used even less oil than this) add olive oil, once the oil is hot add cumin seeds as soon they start to splatter, put the roasted tomatoes and with the back of the spoon start crushing them.
- Add the garlic ginger paste mix well and then add the chicken. Keep stirring as required on medium flame till chicken is completely cooked, which would take around 5 to 7 minutes.
- Then add cumin powder, paprika, garam masala, lemon juice, salt and coriander. Mix well and cook further for 2 to 3 minutes and remove from flame.
- Serve Hot!
- Roasting tomatoes gives it a smoky flavor.
- Use less salt as it’s the requirement for the diet.
- You can add some water if you want some gravy.

Sounds yummy, I could do that with Tofu instead as I am vegan. Sorry to hear you did not loose as much weight as you would have liked (I recently lost 28kg after going Vegetarian then Vegan!!), but it is a start, so well done to you! 🙂 Cheers, Suz https://gardentokitchenwithsuz.wordpress.com/
Thank u 🙂 and wow!! 28 Kg great work must say
Hey Suz, Just want to let you know.. I tried this recipe with Tofu, as my sister is also Vegan.. It’s was Yum… Give it a go!!
Awesome, thank you! I was going to try it this weekend too, but we had a house fire and now have to set up some other way of cooking. The house is still ok though, and so are we – just a lot of repairs need to be done and our large Cast Iron Range cannot be used as the Chimney is stuffed and the fire got through it into the roof and wall. 😦
OMG… Glad to know you okay… Do you know the reason for the fire?
Thank you, us too. Yes, apparently the chimney got old and started to disintegrate and the fire caught onto the wood around it. It was very scary…
I am sure… Take Care and be safe.. xx
How did you loose 28kgs? Please share some details. My blog is: peekafood.wordpress.com
28… Lol nope I did not I lost 3 kgs only
I went off all animal products and sugar and started eating gluten free. I am so much healthier and happier and it is much cheaper to live too! So I have the best of both worlds, I am better and I am making the world better at the same time 😉
That’s a lot of weight to lose in a week! Congratulations!
Thanks Sandhya 🙂

I am on the day 5 and not loosing much. Went from 157 (71 kg) pounds to 154 (69.8 kg) so far.
I don’t have that much to loose, just wanted to get rid of a fat belly. Belly is still there. I don’t know what I am doing wrong.
The energy levels are high, also skin conditions have improved though .
Hey Victoria, good to know you are trying our this diet.. I have heard many cases where they did not loose much and some cases they did reach losing around 6kgs.. I guess it’s a process of what and how we eat, water intake and how much activity we involve .. I had lost 3.5 kgs which was just half way from the expected weight loss..
But the positive side is ur have high Energy and improved skin condition and you have detox so that’s a good sign 👍👍
Good luck for the rest of days and let me know the total weight loss by the end
Can we add clarified butter in chicken soup?
Hey Rupa I don’t think so.. but you can always google.. good luck

Hi, on 5th day of GM diet plan they have mentioned to include chicken breast and alos mentioned to avoid salt, can u suggest me how to include chicken in my diet
Hey Tanziya, if you check this recipe I have uploaded there is not salt.. as Lemon and tomatoes help build the taste.. but just Incase u can’t eat without salt try a bit of it in
Yes it was 😊😊
This sounds like a great recipe, and may try it with a few modifications. I have an electric stove. We are on a low-fat diet, so less salt is necessary. thanks for the recipe.
So glad you liked the recipe.. Thank you for stopping by 😊😊
