Have you ever heard of the Hollywood Diet? The pineapple and grapefruit diet is a similar method to lose weight very quickly. You cannot eat anything other than these two types of fruit for about 14 days. It is said that you can lose at least 15 pounds in just 2 short weeks! What are the pros and cons of losing weight with the grapefruit pineapple diet? Is this harmless to health? How to Lose Weight and Fat Fast and Safely?
Grapefruit is rich in vitamin C, fiber, potassium and beta-carotene. It also contains pectin, which acts as an antioxidant. 100 grams of grapefruit gives 49 calories. Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain that aids in digestion and would work as an “anti-aging agent.” 100 grams of pineapple gives 66 calories. This diet is easy to follow and results in very fast weight loss.
The 14-day (even 10-day) grapefruit and pineapple diet is dangerous. Why? It’s just too restrictive. You will miss out on so many essential vitamins, minerals, lipids and proteins. Don’t do this! You will tire easily in your daily activities. This restrictive diet will cause significant muscle wasting and disrupt both your metabolism and cardiovascular system.
The popular notion that this type of all-fruit diet has the trait of eating fat has not been scientifically proven. For most people, this diet ends in failure. After following this diet, you’ll likely regain all the weight you’ve lost, plus some!
