  • NO! 1) Grapes are mostly water, so essentially you would be getting very few nutrients. One week of practically no nutrients will leave your body ill-nourished. If you do this at all, I wouldn't advise more than two days. And be sure to take a multivitamin. If you're doing it for weight loss, I guarantee you will very quickly gain back anything you lose, and maybe even more once you start eating again. 2) The best way to detox is to perhaps "fast" (by this I mean the water and grapes thing) for two days, then gradually add items to your diet that are not heavily processed, are low in fat and do not have added sugar, salt, or preservatives: dark green leaves (spinach for iron, kale for iron and calcium), whole grains, lots of fresh vegetables (preferably raw or steamed), lean white meats (cook it yourself - it's the only way to get it right), beans and grains. By "gradually", I mean that you don't add all of this stuff into your diet at once - spend a few days on vegetables and fruit with high water content, like celery and melons, then after a few days add nuts and grains (for protein), then denser vegetables, then fish and meats, etc. Make sure everything is fresh, and as organic as possible. 3) DRINK, DRINK, DRINK!! Water, decaffeinated green tea (avoid caffeine), and citrus juices like pineapple, grapefruit, lemon (though you shouldn't add sugar) and cranberry juice. This will really help flush impurities out of your system. Avoid alchohol. 4) Sweat as much as you can: take a sauna, a steam bath, exercise - gets the impurities out of your pores, too. Now if I could only practice what I preach!
  • if you do that you will be so low on energy i would be surprised if you could get out of bed after just a couple of days on this diet. no person could just live off of grapes for however long you want to
  • actually, it has been proven that grapes are an excellent way to detox. The French have been known (during the season for grapes) to detox this way for 3 days. I think as to whether or not you have low energy from it is based on many individual factors. I don't think I'd go a full week though.
  • This detoxification diet has been around for a long time. It also has cured a lot of stage IV cancer victims, who modern medicine had given up on. (Brandt Cure) Most of the cancer victims use this diet for weeks at a time, so the one week you are asking about should be no problem. It is a tough diet to stay on from a will power standpoint, but if you can get past that, it will do wonders for the follower. You should probably take a multi-vitamin along with this diet.
  • Uhhhh... No! It's not. If "You are what you eat." is at all true? ...maybe these idiots should eat more noodles? That way they can actually use their's before making such idiotic, dangerous claims!
