Grapefruit as a Diet AidAs we discussed in our recent blog post, Increase Your Health with Grapefruit, the simple grapefruit is one of nature’s super foods. In addition to boosting your immune system and helping you reduce stress, grapefruit has also been used to encourage weight loss since the 1930s.

How Grapefruit Helps Weight Loss

Grapefruit provides a high level of vitamin C which has been found to metabolize fat more quickly. The FDA recommends 60 milligrams of vitamin C daily to maintain basic bodily functions, but adding 500 milligrams to your diet per day increases your ability to burn fat while exercising by 39%. A study by the Scripps Clinic established that test participants who consumed a half grapefruit with meals lost an average of 3.6 pounds during a 12-week period.

One drawback of eating grapefruit is its sour taste, which people will often sweeten with granulated white sugar, brown sugar, or artificial sweeteners. However, sugars increase calories and artificial sweeteners have been linked to a number of health problems. How can you enjoy eating grapefruit without compromising its health benefits?
