Can you tell me how much weight typically will you lose daily on the south beach diet?

It depends : A lot of weight loss depends on your weight age and gender as well as the type of diet you're following. On the south beach diet which is a hypoglycemic ketogenic diet for most part the typical weight loss is about 2 to 3 pounds a week. However if you are heavy, and exercising while dieting i've seen as much as 5 to 10 pounds a week for the first few weeks as you lose weight the weight-loss slows down. ...Read more

Can you tell me how much weight will i lose switching to a vegetarian diet and consuming 300-600 cals?

Depends : I'm not sure if you mean you will only be taking 300-600 cal of vegetarian food for the day which is too low of a caloric intake and not recommended on any diet. The minimum caloric requirement on a very low calorie diet is about 800 cal, mostly from proteins and fat. That will result in at least 2 to 3 pounds of fat loss a week in a ketogenic state. ...Read more

I need to lose 15 pounds in a week. I weight 150 and im 5'2". What can I do? What diet pills do you recommend? Does grapefruit help to lose weight?

Probably wont happen: Probably won't happen unless you starve yourself and don't eat anything for a week. Even then, losing 10% of your body weight in one week is very unhealthy. Diet pills like Phentermine don't so much burn calories as they do curb appetite. Laxatives and diuretics will cause dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities and possibly arrhythmias. Rethink plan and try 15 lb over 3 months probably safer. ...Read more

One you stick to: If you drop 500 calories out of each day you will lose one pound a week. Any diet you choose should have a balance of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and protein.

No: There is no sound nutritional reason to use this diet, but if you choose to do so it's likely you'll lose substantial weight during the first few weeks. This happens with almost any major diet manipulation. Unfortunately, almost everybody gains the weight back. Best course is a balanced, low-calorie diet including all food groups that can be sustained for life plus vigorous regular exercise. ...Read more
