    Grapefruit Diet and Medication

    Large amounts of grapefruit can interact with a number of medications, potentially causing serious side effects. Grapefruit ‘works’ by inhibiting an enzyme in the intestines that’s responsible for the natural breakdown and absorption of many medications. When the action of this enzyme is blocked, blood levels of these medications increase and this can lead to potentially toxic side effects. If you’re taking any medications you might want to speak to your physician first, before eating lots grapefruit to boost your weight loss.

    The Grapefruit Diet Meal Plan

    A typical breakfast consists of half of a grapefruit or 8 ounce of grapefruit juice, a cup of tea or black coffee, 2 eggs and 2 slices of bacon. As sugar consumption is restricted on the grapefruit diet, juice, coffee and tea is drunk unsweetened. Lunch and dinner include meat or fish cooked in any way, fresh non-starchy vegetables, black coffee or tea and, of course, half of a grapefruit. For supper, you can have a cup of vegetable juice such as tomato juice or skim milk.
    The diet lasts 10 days followed by 2 days off, which is why it was nicknamed the “10-day, 10-pounds-off diet”. The diet can occasionally last 12 days instead of 10 days.

    The Grapefruit Diet Results

    The main claim of the grapefruit diet is that it helps to lose up to 10 pounds in 10 days (occasionally that claim is 12 pounds in 12 days). Some variations of the grapefruit diet are not calorie restrictive that is you can eat as much meat, fish and fresh vegetables as you want to. These variations of the grapefruit diet can be considered healthful as you can get enough nutrients from your meals to meet your daily nutritional needs.

    If you are not allergic to citruses, grapefruits may be very good for you. They are low in calories, with only 52 calories per half a grapefruit, and high in dietary fiber, vitamin A and vitamin C. The only concern is the high consumption of saturated fat in the diet. The claim that foods high in dietary fat help you burn fat if eaten with grapefruit is not scientifically feasible. You should trim all visible fat from your meat and use olive oil in place of butter when cooking.
