This Seems to be a new one.

Grapefruit / Fruit Juice

A little foreward:

We have read all of the fad diets. Some have an underlying priciple (such as eliminating carbohydrates) while others are mainly starvation. This particular diet just seems weird. Of all of the diets it seems the least factual. It is presented (as are all the fad diets on this page) for your information and enjoyment.

Note: This diet is sometimes referred to as the "New Mayo Diet" however, in this case we think they may be referring not to the Mayo Center Medical facility, but to the National Mayonaise society.

The Promise:

In 2 1/2 months you should lose 52 pounds.

The Rules:

  • You must drink eight 8oz. glasses of water daily (64 oz. total per day).
  • At any meal you may eat until you are full.
  • You must eat the minimum listed at each meal. (yep, this diet list the minimum you should eat).
  • You cannot eliminate anything from the diet. Especially the bacon at breakfast and the salads. You must eat the bacon and salads. These combinations of food burn the fat, omitting one part of the combination will cause the whole thing not to work.
  • The grapefruit or fruit juice is important because it acts as a catalyst that starts the burning process. Don't add or reduce the amount of grapefruit or juice.
  • Cut down on coffee, it affects the insulin balance that hinders the burning process. Try to limit to 1 cup at meal time.
  • Don't eat between meals. If you eat the suggested foods you will not get hungry.
  • You can fry food in butter and use butter generously on vegetables.
  • Do not eat desserts, breads, and white vegetables or sweet potatoes.
  • You may double or triple helpings of meat, salad or vegetables.
  • Eat until you are stuffed. The more you eat the more weight you will lose.
  • Stay on the diet 12 days, then stop the diet for 2 days and repeat.
