I had to google because I didn’t know what the Groomsmen diet is. I did find this –> http://nrsl.wordpress.com/2008/02/22/living-through-the-gm-diet/

 

Personally.. I wouldn’t do this. I’m just really leery of any program like this. I used to work with a girl who did veg/fruit cleanses that seem like a variation of this, and it didn’t seem to produce results for her, and she would go on about how awful she felt.. maybe that colors my perception, too.

I think that any MD would say that losing 10-17lbs in a week is not safe or healthy, unless you are super, super obese.

That’s 7-10% loss on a 150lb person. That’s just going to be all water weight and muscle.

Yeah, sorry, anything that makes you lose more than 2-3 pounds a week has GOT to be apallingly unhealthy and a risk. Don’t put your body through stress like that – if you want to lose weight, eat healthy, drink water and exercise. It might take longer than a week, but how long did it take you to gain the weight in the first place? Probably more than 7 days.

As with most fad diets/cleanses, the bulk of the weight you lose will be water weight and you will likely put it back on when you go back to “real” eating plan. Sustainable weight loss is about a long-term change of your habits, which means making changes and choices which aren’t temporary. If you eat nothing but celery for two weeks, naturally you will lose weight. But are you doing yourself a favor? Not really.
