The Grapefruit Diet Review

Often used by those who are seeking rapid slimming results in a hurry, the grapefruit diet may be one that you are considering diving onto yourself.

But, before you do so, it’s important to keep a few things in mind so that you’re fully prepared to take on this diet and are ready for what it’s going to offer.

What This Diet Is All About

This diet plan is based primarily around eating grapefruits and not much else.  The idea is that grapefruits contain a special weight loss property that can help assist with boosting the rate of fat burning taking place in the body, helping you reach your goals more quickly.

This diet is to be done in a 12 days on, 2 days off type of set-up and has you combining grapefruits with other foods.

What You’ll Eat

On this diet, you’ll combine grapefruits with a variety of different protein sources along with plenty of vegetables and the occasional glass of milk.  Carbohydrates and dietary fats are kept low, making this a very low calorie plan.  You are allowed bacon however, so that is one food that will provide some additional fat to the body.


  • Will help you lose the weight quickly
  • Can help to keep blood sugar levels stable due to the removal of sugars and starches
  • Does focus and promote greater vegetable consumption


  • Will leave you feeling low in energy
  • Doesn’t offer much in terms of variety of foods
  • May cause the metabolism to slow down
  • Doesn’t encourage exercise

The Verdict

All in all, while the plan is great since it makes sure that you get enough lean protein along with vegetables in, it’s not going to foster that high of energy levels and may cause some people to feel rather ‘fuzzy minded’ due to its low carb nature.

It does allow for the two day break between 12 day cycles, which is nice and will provide you with a much needed break and allowance to eat normally again.

All in all, it’s not the most sound approach, but you could do far worse.
