    What to replace grapefruit in the cutting diet...

    well I want to start this diet, but my mom says that grapefruit can interfere with my acne medication (minocycline), and I pay over a 1$ a day for 1 pill and yea.. you get the point.. i have bad acne...

    so I don't care about taste or anything like that, but what can I replace it with? oranges?

    will the diet still work if im having proper workout, + proper supplementation?
    or is grapefruit needed?

    oranges are OK...but if you're looking to get on stage, not recommended(from what knowledge I have)

    as said oranges have the next highest lvels of narigin in the fruit. but not as high.

    if your not competing then it should be ok. atleast imo

    Totally agree. Just substitute the grapefruit with orange. It's not optimal but you have to make the cut diet work for you.

    Good luck on your cut exaltedangel09!!!

    ok

    it asks for 6.5 oz of grapefruit and it says a piece of orange is 3.5 oz, does this mean I should be eating 2?

    in the food lists in the back of the book it says the serving sizes paired with how many carbs/protein/fat its worth.


    in this case... 6.5Oz grapefruit = 15G carb where as 3.5Oz orange = 15G of carb. so if you wanted 15G of carb from that source (orange) then no.. you would not increase the serving size
