I want to know has anyone heardof the famous grapefruit diet plan? I tried it for the 12 days that's required and lost my 8lbs. My mom wanted the plan and then she got on board with my father and they lost 25
together. The only complaint was that you're not eating any fruit or bread and certain veggies so you really don't get to go to the bathroom
like you should and I don't mean urinating. I wanted to know if anyone else out there is on this diet and what are your thoughts, is this healthy or not? Any comments would be great!!!

Always heard that the grapefruit diet wasn't that safe, but i don't know anyone that's tried it and had success with it.
I lost 11 lbs in as many days and kept it off for nearly a year....but then I'm one of the ones who GAINS weight on a so-called "healthy" eating plan...high in complex carbs, low in fats and sugars - and my digestive system can't handle carbs in any form anyway. I'll gain 5 lbs in a week eating vegetables and lean meats and exercising like you're supposed to. That's just me.
I wish I could remember the details exactly , because I've been looking for that exact one again, myself - and you DO eat vegetables on the one I was on. I remember that every morning for breakfast it was 2 eggs and grapefruit (or the juice if you're like me and can't stand the stuff) - for lunch it was tomatoes and green beans and, of course, the grapefruit - but lunch varied as the days went on, too....supper you had salad, toast, chicken, steak, eggs, grapefruit - it was a 14 day plan.
