What is the Atkins Grapefruit Diet?

By Owen Jones

The Atkins Grapefruit diet is a diet plan, not endorsed by the eponymous Dr. Atkins firm, that tries to play on the popularity of two diets: the grapefruit diet and the Atkins diet. However, a close look into this diet shows that it may not be all it claims for itself.

First off, it's very difficult to any find information on the Atkins grapefruit diet plan at all. Clever people know that when someone is carrying out a deception, or a con, they will usually gloss over the facts. This is what the Atkins grapefruit diet seems to be doing in an attempt to get people to associate it with two supposedly effective diets.

Is the Atkins Grapefruit Diet part of the Atkins Diet or recommended by the late Dr. Atkins' firm? The answer is a loud no! But, not only is there no mention of the Atkins Grapefruit Diet on the Atkins web site, there is just no fruit of any sort allowed in the list of allowed foods in the Atkins diet Induction phase either.

The induction phase allows the following foods: fish of all kinds, all fowl such as turkey and chicken, any shellfish, any meat such as beef or pork, eggs cooked in any style including fried, cheese, vegetables, herbs and spices, fats and oils, low carbohydrate beverages including diet soft drinks.

Please, notice one thing - fruit is not on that list. Later phases of the Atkins diet do include limited amounts of fruits such as cantaloupe and even strawberries, and the pre-maintenance and maintenance phases even specifically allow small quantities of grapefruit. But when compared to the amount of Grapefruit recommended on the Atkins Grapefruit Diet, again there is a massive disagreement.

The Atkins Grapefruit Diet suggests a cup of grapefruit juice or a cup of grapefruit sections, with 8 and 18 carbs respectively. Even the most generous phases of the Atkins diet suggests limiting consumption to below 8 carbs per day, when it comes to grapefruit. That's a direct contradiction of one plan to the other.

Most sensible people would have a look at the Atkins website itself the moment they heard of the Atkins Grapefruit Diet and when they found no mention of that diet on their site, a red light would flash and an alarmbell would ring.

In general, remember that any plan that relies very heavily on one type of food, such as grapefruit in a grapefruit diet, is unhealthy for any but very short periods. The Atkins Grapefruit Diet is not associated with the Atkins diet, and may interfere with the results of the Atkins diet, especially in its early phases.
