A 21-day so-called 'diet' of grapefruits, a little protein and not much else. Despite many ludicrous claims, grapefruit (like cabbage) does not possess any 'fat-burning' properties.
What You Eat -
Typical Breakfast - Half a grapefruit & black coffee.
Typical Lunch - Half a grapefruit, 1 egg, some salad, a piece of dry toast & tea or coffee (without milk).
Typical Dinner - Half a grapefruit, 2 eggs, half a head of lettuce with tomato, & tea or coffee (without milk).
Advantages - Grapefruit is fat free, low in calories and full of vitamin C. Pink grapefruits also contain some beta-carotene. However, eating a few grapefruits hardly justifies calling it a 'diet'.
Drawbacks - Lacking sufficient iron, calcium, and many vitamins, this 'diet' is unhealthy as well as monotonous. Also, it contains far too few calories.
Needless to say, it doesn't help you to change your eating habits which is the No 1 secret of permanent weight loss. Verdict... Avoid it!
