About / History

The Mayo Clinic Protein Diet—also goes by many different names such as the New Mayo Diet or Grapefruit Diet--is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate weight loss regimen that has been popular in various forms since the 1930s. Despite its name, the Mayo Clinic Diet was not designed by the Mayo Clinic Medical Research Center.

I first learned of this diet when my doctor had introduced it to me. I was skeptical at first but when I had started it I lost over 30lbs in a few weeks with some moderate bike riding. I didn’t reach my goal because my weight loss increased my fertility and I got pregnant with my daughter. Now that I am no longer breastfeeding I have decided to restart this diet.
