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 lost 10lbs total this last phase 16 lbs total. Today is day 1 of my 3rd phase. I gained 1lb back from my 2 days off. 189! 24 more to go.
Hi JGirl! Congrats. I too am bored with the food. But I noticed Im not that hungry either. Congrats on your loss. I can eat the grapefruit. I like it. But the bacon is yuck.
Im hoping to get another 7-10lbs off this round. I know its going to slow down. My next goal is 185. And then 179. I hope I have as much luck this round as last 2. I also hope eating all the carbs I ate on my days off will help shock my body again.
Good luck to everyone!

DTS, if you stop and eat like crazy, for sure will gain back. you should change your eatting style after the diet. You should try to avoid eatting to many sugar things and carb. For me, I didn't gain back. I just make sure there is no carb after 6 p.m. Every week only have 1 sweet day.

Hey everyone, you won't feel bore on the food if you don't eat salad everyday. Breakfast is bore but if you use other way to make it and make some fun on it.....it is still ok. what else you can eat beside salad. you can have steak with vegetable boiled, or fried. you can stir fly veg. with meats too, or you can use carrot, tomato, chicken breast to make soup, very delicious. give yourself some creative will help you pass the bore time fast

posted 25-Sep-2012 3:04pm

the theory behind this diet is egg + bacon + graphfruit will have a chemical reaction to let you burn your fat......why bacon as bacon has good amount of fat to spark the chemical.....that is why people follow this diet has 10 lbs lost, not just 2 lbs, 3 lbs lost.

as your case......you only eat fish and chicken is very hard. So just eat eggs and chicken or fish then and try it out......hope it for you. give us a report after 5 days......

don't let yourself disappointed, please don't expect you can lost 10 lbs by 12 days.....if you do, you will feel happier, ok

hi New.......very simple, take out all the carb, that is no bread, no pasta, no rice, no noodle, no flour. take out dessert, any sweet thing cannot be eat.

BREAKFAST: 2 eggs + 2 slice bacon + 1/2 grapefruit (a must follow)
LUNCH and DINNER: any meat, any cooking way but no breaded, + any veg (except white veg, white onion, potato, yam, beans, snow pea......) + 1/2 grapefruit

you can take grapefruit juice but make sure 100% no sugar one.

you can have 1/2 cup of skim milk before bed time or snack time

Hi Everyone. First Off Afanta i'm so happy you started back, I cant wait to here you great results. Just finished my 2nd round and lost 8 pounds ( I took a whole week off). I am very happy with my results so far total of 15 pounds lost. Stated at 280lbs now at 265 lbs in only little over four weeks. I am taking a few days off, will not be sting over round three until 09/30/12, hoping for another 7 pounds. DTS the only thing I can say is try the chicken in the morning with your eggs for a week straight with no other changes to the diet and see if you can still lose weight. Evedn if you just lose 3 pounds a week is still great. You will never know what works for you unless you try it. Granted the say to eat bacon in order for it to work, but as i posted in some i my prev post i dont always eat the bacon and i still have been losing ana average of 7 pounds. Diet from the pasts has been updated with a little tweek and called something else. Take for example the 17 days diet, if you look at phrase one it pretty much the same as this diet. You can check out that diet phrase one it does give a lil alternative to bacon. like eating instead turkey sauges, patti etc. Good Luck DTS hang in there and find you nitch as to what will work for you.

posted 26-Sep-2012 10:07am

are you drinking enough water DTS? That really helped me. Today is day 3 for me on round 3 and i lost 2 lbs. It is slower this time. Im hoping to get to 179 by next Frisay but wont be dissapointed if I make it to 183. Im stil at 16lbs lost total as I gained some from my days off. Dont be discouraged you just need to tweak something. Also are you exercising at all? Might help now and in the long term if you incorporate 30 minutes of aerobic activity 3 times a week? I know it says its not needed but my feeling is its always neccessary for long term weight loss. Also I eat the grapefruit 10 minutes before I eat my meal. Also you may need to analyze what youre eating. Write it down or get an app for your phone where you have to list what youre eating. You might not be eating enough fat or protein. Hope this helps

DTS, good for you. Execrise is good but don't work too hard. 30 min is enough. Because this diet is high potein diet, if you work too hard, you will build muscle and become muscle woman or man.....2nd, if you really count cal, it is a bit low. if you workout too much, your body will feel you are starving.....and nothing will happen.....Just don't look at the weight 1st, feel your body, Day 4 you will start to feel the clothes is a bit loose......and in Day 6, you can try to weight yourself.......

DTS if you on this diet, no need to count the cal.......also depend on your height and activities......for me i like to have 1200 -1300 cal per day......but this diet I count it is about 1000 cal......

don't worry now, just eat as per the diet, and come back on day 6 after you weight yourself, ok

DTS you are eatting real grapefruit or grapefruit juice?

both are ok but if you are taking juice, you have to make sure there is no sugar in it.

if you eat real one and it is ruby or red grapefruit, even the color is not red, is ok.....

don't worry, you will loose, give your body sometimes to work it out.......

DTS, I want to ask you are meal very salty? Why I ask that as if you eat too salty, it will cause water retain and it gives you more weight.......double check. Also your italian dressing, check the carb % and sugar % and let me know.....for the dressing, i suggest you to use just olive oil + frech lemon juice + herbs + little salt + pepper....those dressing normally has a lot of sugar on it.....

DTS, you can keep on dispointed but then it will cause you not loosing weight as your stress will make the diet not working......take it easy, just eat and follow, you will get suprise later.....I won't stop you to upset everyday, it is up to you

Today is the end of my first 12 days of this diet. I am proud to say that I have lost 12lbs. I was wondering what those of you that are doing it eat on your 2 days off? I plan to eat oatmeal for breakfast. Not sure about lunch. I do want to eat some green beans and peas for dinner Saturday and Sunday. I don't want to go overboard, but there are a few things that I miss...chocolate is my biggest one. When I found this diet it said it was given to heart patients who needed bypass surgery and that I could lose 52lbs in 2 months. Has anyone lost that much? There are so many variations of this diet out there, that I hope I am following the right one. I am eating carrots, which 1 said I couldn't have. The others said I could. I am eating red, yellow, green and orange bell peppers and have eaten zucchini a couple of times. I am eating salmon, shrimp, lean beef, boneless skinless chicken breast, ground turkey breast, and tuna in water. Are all these allowed? I am sorry, if I have asked too many questions. I really want to lose the 52lbs before I go home to see my family in January.

when you are on this diet, you just have to make sure you don't eat any flour, bread, pasta, pita, wheat, cereal, potato, yam, white color veg, white onion, no dessert, no sugar during cooking, everything else you are ok to eat. If you are not sure, just double check the indigent list.......if you see carb, drop it.

for the salad, I suggest you remove it. Instead cook the vegetable by boil it, add some salt to make taste, you can add chicken bothe into water to make taste also......can you do that?

if you cannot, when you take salad, just take it with olive oil, salt, pepper, herbs and lemon juice only......

Hi All.
DTS how tall are you? I'm asking because when i was 175 (A century ago lol) I had a difficult time losing weight because i'm 5ft 8in with Medium built frame. No matter what I did I could not lose actual weight because my body frame is not small built; however at that weight and hight i was wearing a size 10. I was able to tone up but then I was very active in college doing track and field. Now some 20 plus years later im 265lbs after Marriage and children and not being active at all. It's easier for someone like meto lose alot of weight really quickly because of the starting weight. I started my round 3 today and hoping to lose at least 20 pounds over the next 30 days. My goal is to get back to 175 - 180 and a size 12. I will be very happy at that goal because with my height. Maybe look into Atkins and do their first two weeks (induction) to give you a jump start and then switch to the grapefruit diet. Their website is atkins.com it completely free and give you a complete week by week diet to follow. As I mentioned before I switch betwen both diets because the only difference is on Aticking you are allowed 2 protein snacks. Thanks

Bea, you just don't take that 2 day off and eat for a month and see it help you loose more......

me very bad, after 2 round, it is no action. 5 month restar last week so far didn't lose anything as I weight myself on Day 6, it is 155, then Day 7 weight again is 157, then today is 158.....so I still on the same damn old weight 158. I think it might be my period will come soon, so gain back weight so fast......but normally when this weight is up, there is no way down, so I have to start all over again from 158.......it is a nightmare for me......

DTS, did you measure yourself. If not, measure your waist, hips and after the diet, measure again. it might loose some inch but not weight....

also some people eat grapefruit cannot lose weight but when they switch to juice, it works.....maybe you try juice and see what happen. Make sure the juice is no sugar one......
