Grapefruit Diet





Summary


The epitome of a fad diet, though many say it works.


Description


The grapefruit diet is really just a set of standard rules you follow for mealtimes. There are some variations in the rules, but they usually look something like this:

o Drink 8 8oz (64oz total) glasses of water each day.
o When eating a meal, stop when you are full.
o Follow the meal-plan (below) exactly, no substitutions and you have to eat everything listed. No snacking
o Do the diet for 12 days, then take a break for 2 days.

Breakfast:

grapefruit ( or 8oz of grapefruit juice)
2 eggs prepared any way you choose
2 slices of bacon

Lunch:

grapefruit ( or 8oz of grapefruit juice)
salad with the dressing of your choice
all the meat you want

Dinner:

grapefruit ( or 8oz of grapefruit juice)
salad with the dressing of your choice OR a red or green veggie prepared with butter/spices
any meat or fish
1 cup of coffee or tea

Bedtime Snack:

1 cup of skimmed milk or tomato juice


The grapefruit juice is suppose to be a catalyst that helps burn fat. Coffee hinders fat burning, so you're limited to that 1 cup per day. You can basically eat all the meat and fat you want. Exercise is generally encouraged as well.

There are some supplements on the market that leverage the grapefruit diet as part of their gimmick.


History


It is believed this diet started in the 1970s. It was so simple, it could be printed on a single sheet of paper and photocopied to share with others.


Criticism


Many health professionals and organizations have stated they diet is not healthy. Though recent studies seem to have shown it really does work.

I jus had a baby 4 weeks ago and I am trying this diet out 2 see if I can lose my weight faster than I did with my other 2 kids. I've been doin it for 5 days now and I've lost 4 lbs. So I'm pretty happy with the results so far..hopefully I'll keep losing! I've been eating some cheese with my salad or a slice with some lunch meat for lunch. I didn't know if you could or not but I've been losing so it hasn't hurt me. I can't wait to start excercising but can't do that for 2 more weeks...but so far I haven't had a hard time doing this diet.

Hey everyone, I am starting the diet today, and was wondering...I loveeee my Starbucks vanilla lattes...so could I get a plain latte with nonfat milk or skim milk and add a sugar substitute to it? I don't think I can do without coffee or lattes of some sort during the week. Also, if you do this for 12 days, what are you supposed to eat the 2 days in between you are supposed to stop? Also, this is not a balanced diet, so going from this to another diet...does that work? I hope this diet works out! It seems difficult.

I have been on this diet for four days and usually I drop between 10 or 20 pounds so far only one pound. I need to exercise more. I am keeping a food diet on fitday.com that helps. One of the things that have helped me the most is to keep busy then I do not eat from boredom. Well will let you know how it goes

I have done this diet and I lost 15 pounds in 3 weeks. I never would see the pounds until the 5 th day. Like I started on a monday, and would check on friday or saturday morning and I was losing 5 pounds every week. Very versatile diet on the kind of meat you can eat. I was eating popeyes chicken with green beans, or chicken nuggets from wendy's with a salad...just many combinations. I mainly ate fried meats actually and never exercised because the fat is important in this diet. This diet is great for a great jump start, and I would not do this past the recommended 2 1/2 months for 54 pounds. That was a couple years ago, but now I will be starting this again...good luck everyone.

Hello everyone. I was really glad to find this site. It's very inspirational to find others like myself, using the same diet plan to conquer one common goal.....The battle of the buldge. By reading all the testimonies I know this diet is not a gimmick. I can recall doing the diet many years ago and had excellent resuls so I know for myself it's effective. I don't know what prompted me to try it again ( I do...I am uncomfy and tired of being chunky), I want this weight off of me. I was laid off my job 10 months ago and I have packed on a whopping 30 lbs. I started the diet three days ago on Monday. I must say I feel great, most times by dinner, I am not hungry. I have decided not to weigh myself as often, but go by my bodies image and feel. Perhaps I will designate a day to weigh in. Good luck to all and I will keep you posted.

S88 you are doing great, I see you are losing like 2 to 3 lbs every day or so? Honestly I started on Monday and I feel so amazing and rejuvenated. I am not hungry, I don't even taste or miss the need for starchy foods. I got excited by reading all the post and broke down and weighed myself on Tuesday (I had lost 2 lbs), which was only my second day. I had promised myself that I was not gonna go scale crazy and designate a day to weigh in. Well I weighed again this morning and it looks like 2 or 3 more pounds down.....that is just about 5 pounds. I am sooo excited . I wanted to test the theory and see how much weight I would lose without exercise the 1st twelve days, after my two day break then I will incorporate exercise. How much is everyone losing after the initial 12 days? And there after , every other day? Also what type of results are you guys getting with working out ? And if you do work out, at what point in the day do you do so? Before breakfast? I am curious because I know the experts say that you must replenish after exercise with a meal , but I would not want that to affect the menus of this diet plan.....any suggestions, let me hear them.

cosmochic - i was losing great in the beginning then for some reason i started to gain back and i was freaking out and worrying and depressed. turns out it was my water weight from my monthly visit from mother nature. Im on my 2 day break right now but I will start back tomorrow and I will be incorporating some exercise in. Im doing what you are doing as well. 12 days no exercise...another 12 days with exercise. I will stop after that. I think I lost abt 6-7lbs average within the 12 days. I can't really tell you for sure as my water weight wouldn't let me find my actual weight without interfering! Cosmochic keep me posted on your progress. I actually feel really good today, looked in the mirror and actually liked what I saw. I think I will be losing bit more until I am back to my old weight of 130 and I'l be happy. Not that I wont mind 125 either! Good Luck!!

Thanks everyone for all the encouragement. I started the diet August 8th. I found it really easy to follow. I mainly scramble my eggs because it is easier. I would make enough for 12 days to keep myself on tract. I weighed 205 when I started. I lost 5 lbs after the first 12 days. I am on my cheat days today. I weigh myself only once the 12 days are up. I weigh myself in the morning. I don't want to get obscessed about my weight. I decided to weigh myself after a week in to the second 12 day period and I lost 3 lbs> I was excited. Well I weighed myself this morning and I gained a lb back. I am a little discouraged.I did have barbeque sauce on my porkchop, so maybe the suger could have did it. I will keep trying .

Day 7 for me. All is well. I haven't weighed in and I dont plan to until day 13. My weight fluctuates and its not a good idea for me to weigh myself often. I will weigh myself after the important days to keep an accurate record. The morning of the fifth day, the morning of the thirteenth day, and the morning of day 1 after the two day break. I'm feeling really good knowing I am taking control of my life and changing my body. I'm feeling both mental and physical changes. This diet does cause you to examine everything you put in your mouth and in doing that it makes you consider why you were eating terribly in the first place.
S88 I haven't ever tried chicken bacon some I'm not sure.

Diamond I know its not a large variety of meats but stay focused. Keep your eye on the end results or the goal you have set for yourself. All the foods we are missing now will be there when we reach our goal. Once we reach it We can start incorporating those foods into our diet in morderation. I wish you success with whatever your goal is.

Hey Gang, well this is Day 10 of the diet for me. According to two different scales ( they are the old school needle scales), I have lost 10 pounds.....I know I should be excited but problem is ....I am not. The reason being is because I am wondering if this weight is accurate. I am skeptical because I just dont feel lighter. When I first started the diet and I lost just a few pounds I could feel the difference , so at 10 pounds I should feel it more right? Here is the thing, the diet says you can have any type of meat in any quantity. On Sunday I had steak....lot's of it. Today is Wednesday and I still feel the heaviness of the steak in my body. So I wonder , although it says any type of meat, if when eating steak it should be modified??? Has anyone else experienced this? I am getting myself a digital scale tomorrow.

i actually find the digital scale more brutally honest then the old pointer scales.. i have both and i HATE getting on the digital one because it always shows a heavier number. I lovvee getting on the old one though, always shows me what I like to see, few lbs less!

I've been doing 20mins exercise since tuesday and i haven't gotten back on the scale yet maybe i will weigh in tomorrow or monday. I hope i'm losing. I think the older you get, the harder it gets to lose weight. This was so much easier a few years ago :(

Day 10 Yayyyyy! I've been tempted to get on the scale but I'm going to wait until Monday.
I have been feeling extremely bloated as well I think I am going to try the salt water flush that goes with the master cleanse and some smoove move tea to release this icky feeling I have been having the last few days. Once I do that I should be feeling better.
I have tried steak on the diet and I love it. I think that nauseous feeling your having might also be related to constipation and being bloated. Idk
The thing I do love about this diet I know I am going to wake up and see a change in my body and that feels great. I can't wait to the second cycle already.

I went on this diet on July of this year and i have lost a total of 17lbs in a month, i modified it a bit, but i worked out on the treadmill everyday for 40 minutes "speed walking" and the weight just melted away.. I am currently off the diet, i still want to go down to 100lbs, i currently weight 107, starting tomorrow again. I do want to tell you all that i would recommend taking a multi-vitamin on this diet, and watch out with your teeth, my teeth started to hurt from all of the grapefruit which kind of freked me out and my hair started to falling out while on the diet so vitamins RECOMMENDED!.

Hi Diamond,
I actually feel great eating healthy and exercising. Im also going to stick to my salads for lunch and a healthy dinner with whole wheat and something small and light for breakfast. You were sooo right about working out. I can feel a change in the way my body looks and feels. I LOVE IT! I'm going to keep on doing this and limit junk food to a minimum. I don't put sugar in my coffee and tea anymore either. Instead I have some small snacks that already have sugar in them with the tea.
I'll weigh in a few days later and see what my scale says as well but I am satisfied with the change I feel.
Im actually happy to have some carbs now :)

Hi Gang! Congrads s88 on your continued success. I am on my second set of the 12 day round. Although I think I have only lost a pound since Monday. I have started exercising for an hour a day in the gym and my body feels soooo great. I am trying to go everyday , I want to drastically change my body. I have been doing excellent on the diet, i have not cheated at all. I think the two day break really helps not to deprive yourself, those are the days I treat myself to my favorite foods in modest amounts. My body aches a little because I am just going back to the gym but each day I go, I feel stronger and I know my endurance is improving. I started my spinning classes and I will be alternating with a Hip Hop Class, Kickboxing and weight training. Everyone keep up the great work.

The best bacon to use is the thick cut bacon, you need the fat in this diet and I bbq on weekends and fix green beans for the side. Me and my hubby is doing this and it's very versatile. That is why the diet says any dressing on your salad and any style meat, put butter in your veggies... don't cut the fat out. Will weigh in after 12 days but I have done this a few years ago and had results so I am not doing anything different but good luck again everyone

Hi s88,
well like I mentioned in the last post, my overall body has been feeling great since I started the exercise, It just seems like the scale is not moving, I am still at an 11pound lost and this friday will be my 12th day of the second round. I know the weight seems to fluctuate throughout the day, perhaps I am weighing in too frequently. I may be just losing inches because I certainly see a difference in my body. Thanks for asking, glad you are still going strong, I know I am.

So I just went through and read back this post awhile and y'all definitely have me motivated. I'm not sure how much I weigh exactly (I've been hiding from the scale)but I'm pretty sure it's around 195 and I'm 5'2. I plan to start this diet on Monday (grocery shopping tomorrow)... wish me luck!!! I really hope it works... my first goal is going to be 15 lbs... I'll post here when I weigh in.

Hi everyone, I just had my daughter almost 4 months ago. I went from 170lbs to 244lbs. I'm currently 5'8 and 230lbs. I just weaned her from breastfeeding and going to do this diet for the second time around. I would like to be 150-160, so that's 70-80lbs i would like to lose in 3 to 4months. Does anyone know if that is possible and what are some extra things I can do to lose?

Hey gang, I have been so discouraged lately in losing weight and disappointed with myself
But I found all of you guys testimonials and I feel encouraged! I'm 21 a junior/senior in
College and I'm surrounded by lots of young women with low self esteem and I mean they want surgery ..I choose to be healthy! ..anywho I'm going to start this diet on monday morning..does anybody have a certain time they eat lunch and dinner?
Also I'm short :( like 5'1 and I'm sure I weight atleast 205 will buy scale later and update!

Ms.Coco you can certainly do it without the surgery. It can be done.
