"Lose Weight Fast for Surgery" Diet

I was given this diet by a friend who needed to lose weight before a surgery. It claims one can lose up to 52 pounds in 2 1/2 months, but I wonder just how "safe" it is for those not having any surgeries - just wanting to lose. Has anyone heard of this or have any thoughts?

Breakfast: 1/2 grapefruit or 100% juice unsweetened, 2 eggs (any style), 2 slices of bacon

Lunch: 1/2 grapefruit or 100% juice unsweetened, salad with any dressing, meat (any style - any amount)

Dinner: 1/2 grapefruit or 100% juice unsweetened, meat (any style, any amount, may substitute fish), vegetable, any green or red (cooked in butter or any seasoning) or salad as above.

Bedtime snack: glass of tomato juice or skim milk

Special Instructions: At any meal, you may eat until you are full. Do not eliminate anything from the diet, especially don't skip bacon at breakfast or salads. It's the combination of foods that burn fat. Grapefruit is important because it is a catalyst that starts the burning. Cut down on coffee since it affects the insulin balance that hinders the burning process. Don't eat inbetween meals. Do not eat desserts, breads or white vegetables or sweet potatoes. All soft drinks need to be diet and caffeine free, water is best. You may not have white onions, potatoes or celery. You MAY have red onions, bell peppers, radishes, cucumbers, broccoli, green onions, spinach, leaf lettuce, cabbage, carrots and tomatoes.

IMPORTANT: Stay on the diet for 12 days and stop this diet for 2 days, then begin again.

You can lose up to 10 pounds in 10 days.

Any thoughts???

That's not a lot of food, so from just a total amount of calories perspective, I'm sure you'll lose weight.  Not a lot of variety, but at least it's whole foods and not a packaged shake mix.  I bet it's hard to commit to for 2 1/2 months, but the truth is, any diet is hard to stick to. :)  Try it out and let us know how it goes!  Good luck with it.

Sounds a little like the Adkins Diet that was designed for heart patients before open heart surgery.  I don't recommend it on a regular basis Carla..............there are many other choices.

This looks like the infamous "grapefruit diet" that was the rage when I was in college, some 30+ years ago.  It definitely works, but you shouldn't stay on it for long.  Of course when you go off, the weight comes right back.

I know that bacon, dressing, and butter are by no means "healthy" choices.  I don't think this menu would be a good source of nutrition for 2 1/2 months.

Well, there are fruits, veggies, protein, fats and depending on the salad, some fiber...  Honestly, the breakfast, lunch and dinner sound normal sized, without frills... except for butter.  When all of the low-fat/no-fat diets were so popular the experts said that people just ate MORE CALORIES because their appetites were not satiated missing the fats.  Adding butter=wanting LESS calories...

Marie, I'm not sure if I should try this or not. I'm a little on the desparate side of the weight scale & I know there are no quick fixes to take my weight off quickly. Right now, just sticking to lower portions & exercise.

Roger, I don't know if this is an Adkin's Diet or not, since it was given to me back in the early 70's by a friend who needed to lose weight fast before a surgery could be done. I'm sure that this diet is not given out readily today since it seems pretty unhealthy to me.

Patsy, You may be correct - it could be the infamous GrapeFruit Diet. That was about the same time period, 30 yrs ago.

I would NOT do this one. I've really been checking out all these and it's not a good plan. I'm all for a healthy lifestyle change that is nutritionally balanced with wholesome healthy foods. Something you can do for a lifetime.

I totally agree with you Cheryl. Fad diets are just that, a fad diet, where a different lifestyle change works best overall. I have dropped fried foods with coatings, except for an occasional onion ring.

Well this diet is not a fad diet. It's a diet to help heart patients drop 50 lbs before surgery. I think I'm going to try it just to lose. Then switch to paleo and exercise. Eat healthier. And cleaner.

I used this diet and I lost 50 lbs which helped me conceive my daughter. I lost my copy and have been looking for it since. Thanks for posting it.

My back specialist says I need to lose weight before I can have surgery. I have DDD and a grade 3 spondylolisthesis of the L5/S1. I'm 36 years old and have 5 children to take care of. I don't want to keep missing out on activities with my children and being unable at times to keep a clean home for them. i used to be very active, but since this, I have problems with my legs and pain in my back. I will definitely give this a try. I'm not getting any younger and the pain makes me downright irritable at times. Thank you for posting this. I will definitely work at it. I want to be able to enjoy life again.

I think you xan use fresh lemon juice... sweeten it with genuine stevia (not a blend with glucose or the like )
