Grapefruit Weight Loss in Brief
Anyone who has struggled with weight loss and has played the yo-yo dieting game has heard of the different grapefruit weight loss plans that have been around nearly a century. Not only is grapefruit a fat free and cholesterol free, it is also high in fiber, low in sodium low in calories and low on the glycemic index. So it is no wonder that grapefruit weight loss diets have been around since the 1930s. This diet has been coined the grapefruit diet, the Hollywood diet and the Mayo diet, but regardless of its name, it has been disputed for decades, but has never fizzled out like so many other fad diets.
There have been studies that have proved grapefruit weight loss and others that have dis-proved it. In the end, grapefruit weight loss plans will help you loose at minimum water weight as grapefruit is a diuretic. Another great reason to eat grapefruit and perhaps try the diet is that grapefruit has a combination of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and enzymes that help with the digestive system, excretory system, nervous system and lymphatic system by stimulating digestion, contributing fiber for waste removal, aiding in the release of toxins from the body as well as stimulating the nervous system into awareness. Grapefruit also helps your bones. So even if you do not loose fat weight, you are helping your body become healthier and cleaner then it was before by giving grapefruit weight loss a try.
The principle is that you eat half a grapefruit or have an 8 ounce glass of unsweetened grapefruit juice before your breakfast, lunch, dinner and evening snack. The grapefruit, which is high in fiber and water content will help you feel fuller before you eat your meal and it is said that the enzymes in grapefruit also help trigger your metabolism's fat burning ability- but this is highly controversial and the root of cynicism towards this diet. You follow this diet for roughly 12-14 days for the results of 3 to 10 pound of grapefruit weight loss. It is best to combine this grapefruit weight los program with healthy food options and daily exercise to ensure better results as well as more sustainable results. There are food restrictions so you will need to follow the grapefruit weight loss program specifications as well, but for all of you caffeine lovers, black coffee is also acceptable on this diet so there is no reason to give up your morning cup o joe as well as your favorite foods! If grapefruit weight loss is interesting to you, just go online and do some research to be sure that this diet is for you and of course, always consult your doctor before kick starting any diet.
