The Grapefruit Diet - Most Common Mistakes People Make

The grapefruit diet is a popular weight loss plan that has been around since the 1930s. It became popular as the "Mayo Clinic Diet" in the 1970s and then again in the 1980s as the "10 Day, 10 Pounds Off Diet". In order to follow the diet, the person must reduce their amount of vegetables and fruit, and increasing the amount of meat and grapefruit. The combination of high cholesterol food and grapefruit is said to burn fat in the body. In this article, I will outline the most common mistakes people make when they start a grapefruit diet.

Mistake 1: Not following the diet plan

There are many different iterations of the grapefruit diet. What many people do when they start this type of diet is begin with enthusiasm but by the end of the required 12 days they are only following part of it. In order for this diet to work, you must follow the routine and menus to a T. Otherwise, you cannot blame the diet if it doesn't work.

Mistake 2: Doing exercise

This diet severely limits how many calories that you consume. The idea is that you lose weight without doing exercise. Due to the lack of calories, you may feel fatigued and light-headed. Therefore, following this diet and doing exercise can make you feel worst for wear. It is best to rest as much as possible when doing the grapefruit diet and start exercising again when the 12 days is over.

Mistake 3: Not having any support

With any diet, it is much easy to follow it if you have the support of the people around you. It is a good idea to have a chat with your friends and family before you being and tell them how they can help you follow the diet. There are also resources online that can link you up to people who are following the same diet as you. This can help you if you are having any problems or you need some advice.
