ABOUT THE DIET
Back To Top

The grapefruit diet is about as simple as it sounds. It has been established that grapefruits have fat burning ability and the diet incorporates grapefruit supplementation to achieve losses in weight. Although it is not as short as some diets, it is also not incredibly long either (between seven to 21 days). The diet restricts overall caloric intake to around 1,000 a day.

DIET GUIDELINES
Back To Top

Drinks:

The diet recommends drinking high quantities of coffee with no sugar or milk. Coffee is a diuretic and added consumption will likely result in losses of water weight.

EXERCISE DURING THE DIET
Back To Top

Due to the severe restriction of calories, exercise during the diet would not be recommended. Exercise should only be performed when energy levels are high, and this diet does not allow for enough overall calories to guarantee that.

ADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

This diet is incredibly easy to follow and due to the limited number of overall calories you will be consuming, you are sure to lose some weight.

DISADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

As with all other diets which restrict overall calories to such a low quantity, the weight you lose will likely be regained back over time. The diet is also lacking in essential vitamins & minerals and as a result you may feel dizziness or low energy levels throughout the diet.

CONCLUSION
Back To Top

Although grapefruit is a healthy fruit and many believe it has miraculous fat burning properties, none of these claims have been proven scientifically. You will lose weight on this diet, but it has less to do with any magic in the grapefruit and everything to do with the severe restriction of overall calories. As a result, this diet is not recommended for anyone seeking long term weight loss. However, for the short term, it works well if you do not mind the low energy levels you will experience during the length of the diet.
