12 Day Grapefruit Diet - Does It Work?

The 12 day Grapefruit diet has been around in one form or another since the 1930's. The concept is simple. You eat half of this fruit before every meal. As it is high in fiber, fat free and has few calories it appears to be the answer to every dieters prayers.

Fans of this diet will tell you that the grapefruit contains an appetite busting enzyme which stops you overeating. But of course the reality isn’t this simple. Eating grapefruit is great for your skin and it can help you lose weight but only when incorporated into a healthy eating program. Any diet that is dependent on one fruit is doomed to failure. The boredom factor is too high. How many grapefruits do you think you can eat before you never want to see the fruit again?

Losing weight is a formula. You need to use up more calories via physical activity then you consume. Simple right? Simple, yes. Easy -of course not. You probably have had a lifetime of eating too much of the wrong foods. You need to change all of your eating habits if you want to sustain permanent weight loss.

You can of course decide to start every meal with a grapefruit but you would be better alternating this fruit with other salads, a glass of water with lemon juice or other fruit to prevent boredom setting in. Eat little and often to speed up your metabolism. Increase your consumption of fruit and vegetables. Aim to make your plate look like a rainbow of colors at every meal. No single change in your lifestyle is going to result in a serious reduction in your waistline but by incorporating a number of sensible changes you can quickly see real results.

You will speed up your weight loss and increase your motivation if you follow a proper program of exercise such as those you find at lifetime fitness bootcamp. Meeting other people who also want to lose weight and tone up will help to motivate you. It is also a great way to meet new friends particularly if you have just moved into the area. Don't ever start an exercise or diet program if you are morbidly obese without the advice of your doctor. You are more at risk of a sudden cardiac death and although you need to lose pounds you want to do it sensibly and as risk free as possible.
