3 Day Egg and Grapefruit Diet
The 3 day egg and grapefruit diet is based on the belief that grapefruit is a thermogenic food, and can help you lose weight faster. It's also sometimes known as the "grapefruit three times day" diet.
The original egg and grapefruit diet was for 12 days, but to be honest -- I don't think it was balanced enough to stay on that long at one time. Not to mention how boring it was for that length of time!
Thus the 3 day egg and grapefruit diet was born. It keeps to the spirit of the original 12-day version, but is a bit healthier for you (and will still let you lose weight).
A special note before trying the grapefruit diet -- there have been studies showing that grapefruit juice can interfere with some drugs, both prescription and over-the-counter. For this reason it's best not to eat the grapefruit or drink the juice within 45 minutes of taking any kind of medications..

This is one of the eating plans that is a bit on the monotonous side. While you have some choices, the menu is bsically the same each day. I've put the menu for the 3 day egg and grapefruit diet on a separate page to keep with you.
About That Weight Loss...
This 3 day diet is kind of hard to call. There are a lot of proteins, and if you drink green tea in addition to the grapefruit, it may help the thermogenic effect. So as long as you drink plenty of water, you can lose 2 to 4 pounds on this 3-day program.
I do not recommend this to anyone who has a hard time eating citrus fruits because of the acid, nor for anyone sensitive to caffeine.
Be sure to drink plenty of water while on this diet. You can get an idea of how much you need on the drink water to lose weight page. (Remember, eight 8-ounce glasses is the minimum, not the maximum.)
