Dangers of a 3 Day Diet with Grapefruit
Firstly before taking on any diet you should consult a doctor.

Not consuming enough food could make you feel week, leave you feeling light headed and could lead to binge eating. You have to be very careful and listen to your body.
Grapefruit also have some interesting properties. They are known to actually increase the effects of and block effects of some medication so you must consult the physician if you take any medications. Some suggestions have also said that they increase the risk of breast cancer although this has not been confirmed.

Warnings aside, I would personally trust a grapefruit over a hamburger any day of the week!
