A fairly recent study done in La Jolla, CA showed that consumption
of this particular fruit was found to be associated with a significant
In fact, this particular study showed that two-hours AFTER ingesting
this fruit, post-glucose insulin levels were significantly reduced
among subjects compared to a placebo group.
So this research indicates that this may be the ONLY fruit that actually
increases fat-burning after ingestion (and therefore weight-loss).
What is this “weight loss” fruit?
If you chose one of the previous images as the weight-loss fruit “winner,” guess again….
Grapefruit for significant weight loss
The study concluded that, “Half of a fresh grapefruit eaten before
meals was associated with significant weight loss. Insulin resistance
was improved with fresh grapefruit.”
This is despite the carbs and sugars found inside this fruit.
VERY interesting stuff.
Another great benefit to consuming grapefruit is that it’s loaded
with naringin. Naringin has been documented to inhibit certain
enzyme activity in human liver.
So what does this scientific jargon mean for you?
It means that naringin (found inside grapefruit) may increase
the half-life (extending the activity) of various alkaloids, especially
Even certain fat burners utilize naringin for enhanced alkaloid effect.
In other words, the natural ingredients found in grapefruit could help you metabolize fat more efficiently.
A couple VERY important notes about “how” to eat grapefruit for
more efficient weight-loss.
1. Do NOT use traditional grapefruit juice from concentrate.
The pasteurization process DESTROYS the natural citrus qualities found inside fresh grapefruits. You must either use the whole fruit (preferably organic) or flash pasteurized juices, which are typically very hard to find.
2. Do NOT eat grapefruit every day of the week.
Just like any great nutrition strategy, more is NOT better. I recommend using a 1/2 grapefruit before two of your daily meals about 4 or 5 days of the week.
This will ensure awesome results without adapting to the fat-burning properties found inside this fruit.
By the way, this is a GREAT tactic to break a plateau.
Not only will it increase insulin sensitivity, it will flood your body
with natural enzymes that will potentially help get the fat burning
Of course, it’s only going to work if you’re exercising and eating
This trick used all by itself probably won’t make that big of a
difference. But if you’re consistent with your eating and workout
habits, give this puppy a try!
And if you haven’t heard about the latest “health” food conspiracy
going on with processed grains, wheat, and other so-called fat-
burning foods, I highly recommend you check out this brand new
controversial approach below from one of my newest buddies, Sean
I met Sean in Orlando last month and we immediately hit it off
because of our shared values and beliefs.
Have you ever wondered why 95% of dieters re-gain their weight
and end up heavier than BEFORE they started??…
….Or what the 5% who DO lose the weight and KEEP it off do
