Although this fad diet isn't the healthiest among fad diets, it's certainly not the worst. One of the big problems with the diet is that it doesn't provide a healthy eating pattern. Gorging on one food item certainly isn't good for the old system, either.

Our suggestion is to incorporate some meal suggestions into your current diet. Begin breakfast with a hearty meal. That 1/2 grapefruit isn't going to last throughout your morning.

Enjoy a healthy, hearty lunch as well. For dinner, use one of the meal suggestions above. Eating light late in the day is Diet Wise.
