In brief: Yes
In a 12-week pilot study, led by dr. Ken fujioka, doctors monitored weight and metabolic factors, such as Insulin secretion, of the 100 men and women who participated in the scripps clinic "grapefruit diet" study.
On average, participants who ate half a grapefruit with each meal lost 3.6 pounds, while those who drank a serving of grapefruit juice three times a day lost 3.3 pounds. Many lost 10 lbs.

In brief: Not really.
Grapefruit diet, cabbage soup diet, low fat diet and low carb diets all help with weight loss for the moment, i.
e. For the duration of "dieting". As no one can diet forever, the weight is always gained back if there is not a good lifelong plan in place. It is not hard to lose, but to stay slim is a problem.
