Grapefruit Juice Diet


If you would like to learn more about the grapefruit juice diet and how it can help you lose weight then you should continue reading this article. In this article I will show you how you can use the grapefruit juice diet plan to reach your weight loss goal. If you follow this plan you should be able to lose 10 pounds in 12 days with no hunger feelings.

The grapefruit juice diet plan should be followed to 100 % or else it will fail.

Starting with your breakfast you should drink an 8-ounce glass of unsweetened grapefruit juice. You eat 2 eggs that can be prepared anyway you like and 2 slices of bacon.

For lunch you drink the same glass of grapefruit juice and eat all the meat you want and salad with that. Don’t skip the salad here since it’s an important part of the diet.

Dinner is next and you drink your glass of grapefruit juice and eat as much meat or fish as you like. Add salad to that and drink 1 cup of coffee or tea.

Before you go to bed you should drink 1 glass of skimmed milk or tomato juice. You can consider this as your bedtime snack.

That’s the grapefruit juice diet plan made very simple. If you can follow the above plan for 12 days you should notice around 10 pounds in weight loss. It’s important to remember that this is a very strict diet plan. The grapefruit juice diet cuts out a few of the important food groups so you should never continue this diet for more than 12 days without a break.

So losing 10 pounds in 12 days is very easy with the grapefruit juice diet, but to not gain the pounds again after the diet is over, that is up to you. If you need to lose a large amount of weight very fast the 3day grapefruit diet could also be worth looking at. The grapefruit juice diet is no long-term solution but it’s a great way to jumpstart your weight loss.
