General Diet Plans and Questions - new to site, trying grapefruit diet

03-14-2005, 10:13 AM
Has anyone tried the grapefruit diet? Today, is my first time trying it. I thought that I would try this to get a jump start for 2 weeks, then follow a sensible plan.
I wondered if anyone has tried this and lost weight? I know that this is a big fad diet, but think I may be able to handle it for short term. I hope that I could last. I just had breakfast and counting the time until lunch. I am currently on prednisone which makes me ravenous. I am hoping the unlimited meat & salad through lunch and dinner will get me through. Any comments will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Well-You said that you already know that it is a big fad diet, and not a healthy plan. Most people can't even stick with it for the whole two weeks-and those who do and lose tend to lose more water weight than anything else.
