How does grapefruit actually work to lose weight?
- Grapefruit lowers the insulin in the body, which stops the body from storing extra sugar as fat. Lower insulin levels also decrease appetite.
- Grapefruit is an excellent source of fiber, which will also help you to feel fuller and aids in digestion.
- Just like celery, grapefruit takes more calories to digest than the fruit contains. This delicious citrus fruit is also packed with loads of fat burning enzymes.
Grapefruit comes in a variety of types such as red, pink or white, but each kind tastes very similar. If you want to choose a juicy grapefruit out of the bunch, pick out one that feels heavy. Stay away from the soft ones, as they are usually not as sweet. If you are in a hurry, 100% pure grapefruit juice is a nice alternative to eating the fruit, but the real thing is always the best choice.
It is always a good idea to start your day by eating a grapefruit to jump start your metabolism and fill you up at the same time. The traditional way to eat this wonderful fruit is to slice it in half. If you want an easier, less messy way to enjoy it, peel it like an orange and eat it in sections. You can prepare it ahead of time and store in a resealable bag for a quick snack on the go.
