Frown and prepare to savor grapefruit at every meal. In The Grapefruit Solution, this citrus fruit is the secret to losing weight. But don’t panic: you can choose fruit, juice, or a supplemental version of this wonderful fruit. Grapefruit is so magical that simply adding it to your eating plan, the diet says, will lead to weight loss. The claim of the diet is that grapefruit contains a key compound that prevents excess fat and carbohydrates from being absorbed from the diet. When you eat it at least three times a day, grapefruit provides a feeling of fullness and reduces hunger. It will also lower cholesterol levels and lower your risk of heart disease.
What makes The Grapefruit Solution different?
This diet promises weight loss thanks to a single superfood, grapefruit. The plan claims to be even more effective when combined with any other diet (such as South Beach, Atkins, or Weight Watchers). Just don’t forget to live the grapefruit lifestyle and consume some variation of the wonderful citrus with every meal.
What is The Grapefruit Solution?
The “diet” consists of consuming grapefruit in addition to other healthy foods, rather than consuming grapefruit as the majority of your diet. Eating grapefruit is an addition to a healthy eating plan or diet that you can commit to and that involves slow weight loss and permanent changes in eating and exercise habits.
Grapefruits can be included in most diet plans like Weight Watchers, The Zone, and Jenny Craig. If your diet prohibits fruit, you can take capsules instead of eating whole fruit. This diet promises that no matter which plan you choose, grapefruit will help you lose weight. Even if you just add grapefruit without changing any other eating habits, you can also lose some weight.
A grapefruit serving is one-half to one grapefruit, an eight-ounce glass of grapefruit juice, or 2 tablets of CitraSens supplement (or any other pure grapefruit supplement as described in the diet) at each meal. You can choose the grapefruit shape you want, as long as you consume at least one serving per meal every day.
Many helpful tips are provided for choosing, buying, sectioning, juicing, and consuming grapefruits. You can learn where to buy specialty cutting knives, juicers, and other easy-to-prepare tools.
If you don’t like eating naked grapefruit, you can top the fruit with grape jelly, aspartame, and cinnamon, or a maraschino cherry. You can also try one or more of the grapefruit recipes in the plan.
A typical day’s breakfast might include low-fat yogurt sprinkled with low-fat granola. Lunch is a fruit salad with grapefruit or a green salad with raw vegetables. Dinner can be a casserole with vegetables, grains, and beans, with a small green salad and fruit for dessert. Snacking is a good thing. Choose snacks that are low in calories (between 30 and 60 calories) such as 1 whole grapefruit, a cup of fresh or canned fruit, or ½ cup of low-sugar whole grain cereal.
And don’t ignore your sweet tooth. Satisfy those sugary cravings, if you can, by eating frozen fruit bars or other low-calorie or low-fat treats.
What are the weight loss expectations?
If you eat or drink grapefruit at every meal without any other changes in diet or physical activity, you can lose up to ten pounds in three months. When you add grapefruit and follow the diet plan of your choice, you should lose a pound or two a week. For health reasons, don’t lose more than three pounds per week.
Is exercise promoted?
You should incorporate a minimum of 20 minutes of exercise that you enjoy at least three days a week. By increasing time and intensity slowly, you can work up to 40 minutes five days a week. The diet offers guidelines on how to incorporate exercise into your daily life and tips to keep you moving. She also suggests “ten commandments” of exercise, which include drinking plenty of water before, during, and after exercise, exercising at your own pace and fitness level, and keeping a written daily log of your progress.
Are supplements recommended?
If you don’t, don’t want to, or can’t eat grapefruit or grapefruit juice, take a supplement instead. The supplement is highly concentrated grapefruit and powdered peel.
The pill form gives you more than 40 times the benefits of eating a grapefruit. Take this pill three times a day, once with each meal. When purchasing the supplement, choose CitraSens or Grapefruit Solution to ensure that it is pure grapefruit.
You should also take a multivitamin with minerals on a daily basis. If you don’t eat dairy products, take a calcium supplement with breakfast. If you are eating a well-varied diet, you should have little need for supplements.
