If you are looking for a quick and easy way to get rid of some excess weight, this eggs and grapefruit 7-day diet is what you are after.
The diet has been rapidly gaining on popularity around the world, as there are numerous cases of people reporting to lose up to 20 pounds (9 kg) in the 7-day-period.
Grapefruit is not only known for its antioxidant properties, but it is also famous for its ability to burn down excess fat. The plethora of nutrients found in grapefruit work to burn the fat by improving our digestion and metabolism. It only takes a day of grapefruit consumption to achieve the maximum efficiency when it comes to digestion, and if you keep up with the regiment you will notice the results in just a day or two. Not only does grapefruit burn the fat, its nutritional ingredients are also responsible for efficiently eliminating it from our organism all together, so it doesn’t store in our blood vessels.
When it comes to the other ingredient in this diet, the eggs, you will only use egg whites. They are packed with proteins, which are the key element in every well-balanced diet.
If you are aiming to lose less than 20 pounds, you can be on the diet for less than 7 days, although no less than 3-4 days is recommended.
The diet itself is pretty simple and straight-forward; your only source of nutrition for the week are grapefruits and egg whites. Eat 5 grapefruits a day, and 5-9 egg whites.

It is also recommended to have one serving per hour (of half a grapefruit and an egg white).
