The Fat-Burning Benefits of Grapefruit

fat burning benefits of grapefruit

The road to good health is paved with one good choice, at a time. An easy — and tasty — choice that can have a positive impact on your health is the decision to add grapefruit to your diet.

Recently grapefruit was listed by BodyBuilding.com as one of the 15 best foods for burning fat. Citing a study by the Scripps Clinic in San Diego, the website suggests that eating just one half of a grapefruit a day can lead to a loss of four pounds over three months, even when no other modifications to diet are made. If you prefer to drink your fruits, you can also drink three 8-ounce glasses of grapefruit juice daily for the same effect. The researchers believe that chemical in grapefruit, known as naringin, can reduce insulin levels and prevent fat storage.

Be careful, however, if you take certain medications. Grapefruit and grapefruit juice can have negative and severe interactions with certain drugs including blood pressure and cholesterol medications, antihistamines, and psychiatric medications. If you routinely take medicine, check with your doctor or pharmacist before adding grapefruit or grapefruit juice to your daily diet.

Once you have the go-ahead, however, stock your fridge with grapefruit and enjoy the fat-burning boost, one grapefruit at a time!
