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 did this diet ten years ago and lost 12 ponds in twelve days. I drank 8 glasses of water. I didn't smoke or take birth control. I ate steak for dinner and lunch. I ate green leafy salad with ranch dressing,cheese, and bacon. I didn't vary the diet. I want to eat sausage, ham, and hamburger meat this time.
My lifestyle has changed, but I want to do this again. Can you drink diet Dr. pepper, take birth control pills, and/or smoke? Can you eat link sausage?
This is my first day and I am starving.

It comes with instructions on how to cook your food, so that was one of the exciting part or it and another one is, that it drains the oil out from the meats that I cook in there, especially the Bacon I eat every morning... And another thing, chicken and any kind of salad for lunch is my lunch everyday...and for dinner... It's Salmon or shrimp with steamed mix veggies.... NUWAVE is a big help.

Ms Coco, I buy the OceanSpray no sugar added 100% grapefruit juice. I just started this diet this past Tuesday (Oct. 18th) and I haven't weighed myself. I am so nervous because I fried my pork chops and chicken initially using flour without thinking. I am so nervous to weigh myself but I will post tomorrow and advise as to what the scale reads tomorrow morning. I hope I don't see additional pounds and get discouraged. I weighed in initially at 246 so we'll see in the morning. I need to lose this weight before going to Vegas for my bday the 1st week in March. I know I won't lose it all but I will take at least 50 pound loss and be estatic. Need to lose 76 to get back to the size I was pre-hysterectomy pills and injections.

I never get sick of eating salad. I LOVE salad. Then again, I did just begin. Well Tuesday I weighed in at 246 and as of last Saturday morning, I was 240 so I dropped 6 pounds in 4 days. I have since gained 2 because I became sick with a sinus cold and just grabbed anything to eat since I didn't feel like preparing anything. I am getting back on track this Sunday. I am about 70% better so by Sunday, I should be good to go as far as starting back on the plan.

MsCoco, I am in my 30's and after my hysterectomy it seems my body doesn't shed weight like it did previously. I only had my uterus removed so I am not in menopause stage or anything and yet it's more difficult. It's like it altered my metabolism but then again, I think it was all those different pills and injections since that's what caused me to gain weight anyway.

This is my 2nd time doing the grapefruit diet. I will tell you if you stick with it its going to work. Typically, I don't see weight lose until after 6 to 8 days of being on the diet. Hopefully this time I can keep it off. My problem is I love drinking "long island ice teas" so my weight lose will be slow come off.

I really enjoy drinking grapefruit juice and eating them as well. Sometimes I dont feel like eating them because it's more of a chore trying to peel them and stuff. lol but anyways, Im going on a cruise on December 1st. I would like to shed some of my tummy that "hangs over" because it makes me very discouraged and guilty.
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with getting a flatter stomach while doing the grapefruit diet?
Anyone have any advice for me?

MsCoco is great about posting also. I am sorry I can't answer your question about getting a flatter stomach. So how much did you lose previously since you stated this is your 2nd time doing the diet? I love to drink beer so being off for 12 days should yield good weight loss.

posted 1-Nov-2011 12:21pm

Well if you always had chest and back side when you were at your ideal weight, then I doubt you will lose that once you lose weight; however, if you acquired those because of the excess weight, then they very well might go away. You can always excercise doing squats etc to ensure you keep your back side from going away. I am not too sure about the chest area.

Hi All! After 2 weeks of putting it off I'm finally starting this diet. Been a bit skeptical before because I'd heard of people complaining about what the citrus was doing to the insides of their mouths. I'd initially planned to use this diet to lose weight for my graduation but that's next Tuesday so definitely not happening so I'm just planning to loose a 'nice' amount in the next 3 weeks to feel better about myself. One thing I wanted to know was, can I have sweetcorn as part of the diet. I LOVE it so much but I know it's also quite sweet. Also, I'm assuming that breaded chicken and fish are off limits.

Quite excited about starting but I'm already craving for a doughnut lol!!!
Nikki_ATL
posted 7-Nov-2011 3:06pm

Hello Cass. Unfortunately, corn is not on the approved list of vegetables; no doubt due to the sweetness of it. Also, the diet stipulates you can have the meat any way you want it and thus, I have fried my chicken and pork chops with flour and it hasn't interfered with my weight loss at all. I am not sure though how much breading is on the chicken or fish. My suggestion would be to try it, and if you aren't losing, then try consuming chicken or fish without the breading on it to see if that makes a difference! I wish you well in your weight loss journey also! :)
Cass

Thanks Nikki_ATL. Got another question .. Is it ok to drink grapefruit juice from concentrate because I can't seem to find any other kind. Also, do you have to drink/eat the grapefruit before having a meal or can you eat/drink it during the meal?
Nikki_ATL
posted 14-Nov-2011 2:56pm

Cass, it's recommended that you use 100% grapefruit juice but if you can't find it, then I would use the concentrate. In regards to consuming the grapefruit juice, I drink a little before my meal and finish the rest as I am eating my meal. Some would argue that you should consume it all 10 minutes prior to eating your meals, however, I haven't had any issues doing it my way. I hope this helps :)

This is the only diet I have tried that reduces my appetite and I can see results immediately. Anybody doubting this diet give it a try you will be amazed.

I started again this past Monday and so far I have lost 6lbs even. I am leaving to go to Miami for a cruise on 12/17/11 and I am going to stay on the diet until them to see how weight I will be able to lose until then.

Hi everyone. I have been on this diet before and I did not stay on it more than a month. I did lose some weight and went down a size. But since then have gained some weight so I got back on before Thanksgiving. Of course it was hard to resist Thanksgiving so I did not lol. I didn't over eat but ate good and had alcohol drinks. Anyway I got back on the diet a few days after thanksgiving and I do not have a scale in my house, but I do feel good and lighter. My stomach has gotten smaller as well. I will buy a scale when I get the chance so I can be more accurate number wise. When I was on the diet the last time I did eat meat any way I wanted. I did lose some weight but I just want to say to everyone out there..Why would you want to eat chicken nuggets or anything processed and breaded? I think this should not just be a temporary thing, but a total lifestyle change! This time around I am not eating processed meats, nor would I even eat anything breaded. I will sautee my meat in 1 tablespoon of butter and a small amount of olive oil such as a tablespoon. But breaded and deep fried? No. Yes you can still lose weight but are still keeping the bad habit of eating something that is not good for you. Chicken nuggets are not good for you. This is just my opinion. But this time around I am looking to change my whole way of life. I plan to lose weight and keep it off. I hope I am not offending anyone who feels strongly about eating foods that are not good for you. I am just giving you soemthing to think about. Why eat orange chicken when it is breaded and has sugar in it? You can just bake, grill or sautee a seasoned unbreaded chicken breast and have just as good a meal like that. Just my .2

I agree with what you are saying KayO but there are people that have eaten the chicken nuggets and still lost weight. I understand your reasoning though and your reasoning is the truth in regard to being as healthy as possible while on this diet for maximum weight loss and health benefits. I guess it's a "to each his own" type situation. People have to do what works best for them. I wish you the best on your diet KayO :)

I just went back and read some more comments and I agree with KayO, but also feel that if that kind of chicken is what you like, go for it, and you can still lose weight.

Alcohol is a challenge for me too. I like to drink sometimes, but I will have some on New Years. Oh and I hope nobody thinks I am trying to tell them what to do. I just feel for me it is time for a life style change. I remember being healthy and in shape, and eating right. Then later on in life developed bad habits. For me, it is best to try my best to steer away from fried foods such as fried chicken. Deep fried that is. I am not saying never ever ever eat fried chicken. Just saying it is easier to develop better habits while dieting if you do not. Then the transition away from a specific diet such as this will have much better results. I love friend chicken too! And fried fish and fried green tomatoes etc. Fried chicken wings and fried tilapia are some of my fav foods. I just am trying to get out of that bad habit. It's working for me. If it does not work for others, that is fine. After all, we are all doing this for ourselves.

I don't think onions will hurt you at all. Your doing good if you are at 188 in 6 days. That means you lost almost 4 pounds. That's awesome!!!! Don't give up! Just hang in there and you will see even more results!

Sorry I have another question are you counting your calories or just winging it? I counted today and stopped at 1200

started this diet on jan 1 as my new years resolution...did it after my last son 14 years ago and lost 90 pounds. dont need to lose that many now but hope it works just as good...to those cheating...i did the first 12 day cycle, but the longer you stay on it the more you body becomes acustomed to it and you wont cheat...just stick with it..and dont weigh yourself every day. i did mine only at the end of the 12 days. you will go back and forth in the beginning..Let's do this everyone!!!!

The object isn't to count calories. You can eat fried foods if you desire. I am getting back on track too this coming Monday for sure and will exercise also since my place of employment has a new gym. Looking forward to starting this year off on a healthy note.

I started monday and I'm down 4.5 lbs today so it's a good start. I'm not really craving anything and don't feel hungry. I'm getting sick of grapefruit to the point where it makes me gag and I miss beer lol. 40lbs more to go it seems like it will be forever :(.

Hi All, So glad I found this. I started Wednesday. I have eating more veggies, some fruit a quite a bit chicken. Every meal I am having a glass of unsweetened Grapefruit Juice. When I weighed in Wednesday I was exactly 200 pounds. I am 5"7 so yes i am over weight. I have stuck to it and was just curious this morning and weighed myself. I lost 2 pounds. Now i know it water weight and giving up breads, sugar will make you lose weight and also my cooler drinks. I really wonder if the grapefruit juice actually helps or just following this very low cal and low fat diet? I am going to try it for a month and see what happens. I wish you all lots of luck!

Hi all...I'm a first timer to this diet. I have tried numerous other diets before and have lost my desired weight on them however found it hard to stay on the diet and have put back on my weight plus more. Hopefully this diet will help me to loose my target weight of 3.7 stone before May (hopefully that will be possible in the timeframe)and also hoping that I will find it easy enough to stick to it. I am planning to start this diet on Monday. I do have one question in relation to the grapefruit though - Is it a full grapefruit or a half a grapefruit you can eat as this web site just says grapefruit but on another site for this diet it states a half a grapefruit... Can anyone tell me which is correct? Want to start off on the right foot. Thx all..

Decided to go with half a grapefruit...nit sure if makes much odds or not. Started yesterday and not finding it too bad. Thought wld miss crisps and bread more but don't which is suprising. Planning to weigh myself once a week... Hope ye are all doing well...

MryIvn... I eat straight after the grapefruit. I am using the grapefruit as my starter before each meal and then eat the main meal. So basically eat half a grapefruit and then get my bacon, eggs and glass of water and have them...and so on. That has been working well for me. I started on Monday and down 5lbs so far (in 4 days). Not going to weigh myself again now until the 12 days are up...smile

Dr. Oz recommended taking CLA which helps with belly fat. My sister has been taking it for 2 1/2 weeks and her stomach has decreased. Her boss actually asked her 2 or 3 days ago what she was doing to lose weight. I am getting some this weekend.

I am starting this diet tomorrow. I'm a nurse and it's kind of embarresing telling patients that they need to lose weight to improve their overall health and here i am 5'3/191lbs (pot calling the kettle black). I know if I can lose 25-30 lbs on this diet my patients will take me more seriously when i suggest life style diet changes for them.

Hello all(:
I started this diet on the 9th of this month. I'm 5'5 and my initial weight was 180. Yucky, I know. As of now, Idk how much I weigh, but I will weigh myself and post results at the end of the 12 days. My goal weight is 140. The first time I did this diet (a few years ago), I lost 9 lbs in 12 days. This time around, I have more to lose, so I'll be doing this for a lot longer than 1 cycle. Good luck to everyone trying to reach their goals. Stay DETERMINED and MOTIVATED guys! :D
