Re: Grapefruit Diet

Robert,

The Grapefruit Diet had it's day...sometimes called the Steak and Grapefruit Diet.
The "theory" was that since citric acid was an integral part of the Krebs Cycle, that extra citric acid would disrupts it prevent the use of some carbohydrates.
Nice theory that never worked in the real world.

BUT, if all you have is a grapefruit instead of a meal, THEN you will lose weight because you are restricting your calories...and that is the only way that ANY diet is successful.

Re: Grapefruit Diet

Thanks a lot Lenin, that was exactly the answer I was looking for
I'll just stick to what I'm doing, eating sensibly and in proper portions
It's working well becuase I have time to exercise a lot
