No, No the word doesn’t stand for “Genetically Modified”. The same words propped up in my mind when I heard of it, but I was wrong. GM stands for General Motors. For all those who have heard this for the first time would be as astonished as I was. The same automobile company that manufactures luxury cars has designed a diet plan – General Motors diet plan to help people lose weight. It was made to help GM employees lose weight and gain good health in their days of decline. It promises a no-nonsense diet plan that helps people lose as much as 7 to 8 kgs in a single week.
