Diet Health - The Grapefruit Diet

in Diet

If you haven't heard of the grapefruit juice diet before you are about to be introduced to one of the easiest and most effective fat burning diets known to mankind. Why? Because other than most diets, which require fasting and a lot of self discipline, this juice diet allows you to eat three meals of food each day.

On the grapefruit juice diet you can expect to lose ten pounds in just under two weeks. And if you continue the diet you can lose up to 52 pounds in under three months!

However, the grapefruit juice diet is not for everyone so if you have any medical conditions or are taking any medications you need to consult with your doctor or health expert to see if your body may have any adverse reactions.

But don't let the doctor laugh and try to tell you that the grapefruit diet is nonsense. Some doctors react this way because they have never done one themselves and there is not any money in these types of natural health solutions. It also damages their ego when they realize how simple health really is.

If this is the case simply state to them that you would like to know if there is any danger for yourself if you consume a lot of grapefruit juice. Tell them that you would like to find out for yourself whether it works or not.

Exercise For Diet Health

You will need to embrace fitness as a part of your lifestyle while on this diet, and after the diet if you want to keep the fat off. One hour a day is recommended, but thirty minutes, six days a week will do. Anyone who thinks a diet, all by itself, will trim their body, keep them healthy, and keep the fat off is full of crap. Diet and exercise create health together.

The Specific Diet

Plan three meals for your day, but understand that each will include grapefruit. You can eat eggs and bacon, or protein shakes for breakfast, salad, meat, and other vegetables for your lunch and dinner, and if you need to have a nighttime snack try drinking a glass of milk. Also remember to take your vitamin and mineral supplements.

Be aware of how you feel after each meal because some people can get an upset stomach from combining fruit and meat. If this is the case either stop the diet or stop eating meat for the rest of the diet.

You have the option of eating one half of a grapefruit or drinking 8-10 ounces of home made grapefruit juice with each meal. If is important that you make the juice yourself with real organic grapefruits.

Bottled juice from the store always contains too much sugar. It is also important that you don't add any sugar to the juice you make. You will need to consume 8-10 ounces of the juice with each meal.

Why Does This Work?

Grapefruit has inimitable fat burning enzymes. Drinking it as oppose to eating it is most beneficial because the juice acts as a catalyst in starting the fat burning process. Another beneficial element of the grapefruit is its ability to lower the levels of insulin and blood sugar.

Some More Rules To Follow

While on the grapefruit diet it is crucial to drink a lot of water every day. Drink water between your meals.

While on the grapefruit diet you should try to avoid:

* More than 8 ounces of coffee each day (coffee can affect your insulin balance, which will delay the fat burning process)
* Desserts
* Processed food, fast food etc.
* White vegetables
* Sweet Potatoes
* Bread
* White Flour
* Sugar

If you are healthy enough give the grapefruit diet a try. You will improve your diet health, your energy levels, you will look better, and feel better within a couple weeks
