How Does It Work and What are the Benefits?


How does it work?-

The main idea was that in the 1930s the consumption of grapefruit was thought to have the ability to burn fat calories, but scientists in the 1930s had never confirmed that this was true. A dieter could eat as much meat and fat as they liked, but starches and vegetables were limited. The dieter would consume the fat to fill themselves, and then the grapefruit which would break down the caloric energy in the fat and quickly burn it up. The diet is supposed to promote a quick and easy weight loss. The diet promises a 10-pound weight loss over the course of the 12-day diet.

When following the Grapefruit Diet plan, one would quickly lose weight. The dieter would not have to deprive them self of food because they eat as much meat and fat as they so pleased. Fried food, butter, and other fat lovers were pleased to be able to continue their unhealthy habits which made the diet that much more appealing. This was a big deal at the time because fried and fatty foods became very poular in the 1930s. During the 1930s, Colonel Sanders created the first KFC in Corbin, Kentucky, The Philly Cheese steak, and Spam, all popular foods, were first introduced. Butter and high fat dressings were permitted in the Grapefruit Diet so people would not have to change the way they prepared foods for themselves and their family's.
