Hi ladies, I dont stray in this thread too much but I have a question for ya. What do you think about the grapefruit diet? My coworker told me she went on it and lost 20 pounds in 25 days!!! She says her dad, a general doctor, tells his overweight patients to do this diet when they need to lose weight in a short period of time. I need to lose 25 pounds by thanksgiving and I am seriously considering this. Please let me know what you think about this diet and if you would recommend another way I can come around losing this much in such a short period of time. Breakfast half a grapefruit two eggs two bacon Lunch 6 to 7 ounce of beef (cooked any way) salad with any dressing you want half a grapefruit Dinner same as lunch Note: Water only and no snacking in between Also, I am doing lots of cardio and weights at the gym.
