I am planning to start the diet but I realized that watermelon season is almost over and I couldn't find any of them anywhere, can I instead just go with cantaloupe and other fruits ?
Also on day 5 and 6 can I replace beef with rotisserie chicken?

yes you can go with cantaloupe for sure, or something else, that is no problem. Changes may need to be made based on what's local to you :)

Yes but make sure you make the chicken, if it's store bought you don't want to know where the bird came from and what's in it. Bad NEWS!

Always happy to help :)

Ask anything you like. Here is a link I will share, you will see I am technically allergic to anything in red.

I am strict, but I know what it takes though to try and keep the weight off even. As health issue stack up it gets harder. basically this test means my body thinks every food in red is wheat, they act like wheat, have a similar protein molecule thus my body reacts severely.

recipes, I tend to eat spicy peppers on everything and eat simply.

Chicken, I normally cook in a crockpot with loads of spices. I normally throw in some veg at the end to soak up the tasty broth....

what does a day look like? Rice is a simple starch and a good carb. However if you have a sensitivity to it (I do, I tested and I have one) then it can cause issues.

basically cereal and milk in breakfast, rice and some curry in lunch, snack like fruit or nut in the evening if hungry and a couple of wheat bread (chapati) which looks like tortillas for dinner, but I haven't had any wheat since more than 18 days and I didnt had any problem before while I was having wheat...the issues seems to be after I finished my GM diet

Well clean up your diet for 7 days and life changes. Go back to eating what you are eating and you will notice. What happens is you learn to live with issues. But when they are gone WOW.

Trust me, I would Google "Wheat Belly". The diet you are on is what I would do if I wanted to gain loads of weight. If you are bloated it's not the 7 day diets fault, trust me you likely have food sensitivity issues to wheat or something else you are eating.

You diet has ZERO balance. You appear to barely eat, bu tI guarantee you eating what you are and that little of food will result in weight gain.

I was always in the belief that if my intake is less than required calorific value...i might loose weight, at least not gain weight...but sometimes as you said I gained a little weight now and then but whats the reason?

Here is the issue, well there are tons of issues with that concept. 1, it was invented in the US where they have no clue what it really means. Basically that lifestyle sells magazine shows and helps weight loss shows like the Biggest Loser, keeping in mind over 90% gain their weight back.

Basically you have created a new set point in your body. So say you do 1500 calories a day, then anything eventually over that will result in weight gain. But that's not all. 1500 calories then starts causing you weight gain. Also we live in a world where we sell 100 calorie cookies for example. Do you think that 100 calories of cookies is the same of 100 calories of vegetables with olive oil? No, not the same at all.

Please spend some time reading this site, you need balance. http://chriskresser.com/the-3-step-process-to-determining-your-ideal-carbohydrate-intake
