Grapefruit/Fruit Juice Diet

411 Views

Some fad diets have an underlying priciple (such as eliminating carbohydrates) while others are mainly starvation. This particular diet just seems weird.

The Promise:

In 2 1/2 months you should lose 52 pounds…

The Rules:



  • You must drink eight 8oz. glasses of water daily (64 oz. total
    per day).

  • At any meal you may eat until you are full.

  • You must eat the minimum listed at each meal. (yep, this diet
    list the minimum you should eat).

  • You cannot eliminate anything from the diet. Especially the
    bacon at breakfast and the salads. You must eat the bacon and
    salads. These combinations of food burn the fat, omitting one part
    of the combination will cause the whole thing not to work.

  • The grapefruit or fruit juice is important because it acts as
    a catalyst that starts the burning process. Don’t add or reduce
    the amount of grapefruit or juice.

  • Cut down on coffee, it affects the insulin balance that
    hinders the burning process. Try to limit to 1 cup at meal time.

  • Don’t eat between meals. If you eat the suggested foods you
    will not get hungry.

  • You can fry food in butter and use butter generously on
    vegetables.

  • Do not eat desserts, breads, and white vegetables or sweet
    potatoes.

  • You may double or triple helpings of meat, salad or
    vegetables.

  • Eat until you are stuffed. The more you eat the more weight
    you will lose.

  • Stay on the diet 12 days, then stop the diet for 2 days and
    repeat.
