The new grapefruit diet

  1. It is not news that fruits and vegetables can help with weight loss, as they contain many nutrients and few calories. You can eat a lot of it and still lose weight. Some fruits help with weight loss, such as the grapefruit. Not surprisingly, there is a diet that is high in grapefruit. What does this diet entail and what can you expect from it.

The background

  1. Grapefruit is a fruit that has many health benefits. The grapefruit contains the substance narigine, the substance that also makes the fruit taste bitter. This substance causes the body to burn fat instead of storing it as energy reserve. This was a popular diet as far back as the 1930s, thanks to the stars in Hollywood. The diet also regained popularity in the 1980s. Back then, however, it was mainly a diet with few calories (about 800 per day), a lot of grapefruit, coffee, dry toast and sometimes some meat or fish. Now the grapefruit diet is back in a whole new form.

What is the diet

  1. You follow the diet in cycles of 12 days. After these 12 days you have two days of rest in which you simply eat and then start a new period of 12 days. The basic rules are:

Which foods are you allowed to eat and which foods are you not allowed to eat

  1. Food that you are allowed to eat Food that is prohibited Red onions Jam or compote White onions Green beans Peppers Gherkins Potatoes Beans Radish Pretzels Celery Mayonnaise Broccoli Fruit Pea Bread Cereal or Cereal Pasta Cucumbers Hot Dogs Starchy vegetables Peanut butter Carrots Green vegetables Leaf spinach Green Onions Tomatoes Corn chips Potato chips Cabbage

Example of a typical grapefruit diet day

  1. Breakfast 1/2 grapefruit or a glass of grapefruit juice 2 eggs, cooked the way you like them best 2 slices of bacon


  1. ½ Grapefruit or a glass of grapefruit juice Salad with a dressing (preferably a low-fat dressing) Meat, cooked the way you like it


  1. ½ Grapefruit or a glass of grapefruit juice Salad with dressing or a red or green vegetable with butter and herbs Meat or fish, cooked the way you like it best Snack before going to sleep 1 glass of tomato juice or milk

What results does it yield?

  1. After two 12-day cycles, you would have lost about 10 pounds. So that equates to 25 kilos in 2.5 months. In that respect it can be called astonishing. However, losing weight so quickly is not really healthy for your body and there is a good chance that it will come back quickly after the diet, because you do not permanently change your eating habit. In addition, it is a fairly monotonous diet, so the question is whether you will keep this up for long.
