Eat half a grapefruit with each meal and the effect will be noticeable within a month. The chemical properties of the citrus fruit reduce the insulin levels and encourage weight loss.
The grapefruit diet usually lasts 12 days, and the daily intake is only 800. If you want to repeat the diet, you should pause for at least two days before starting a new cycle.

The grapefruit has proven to be exceptional for losing weight: Japanese nutritionists research about the impact of grapefruit juice in the diet showed that even those who are not on a diet, and incorporate this fruit in their daily menus can undoubtedly lose the excess weight. On average, those who ate half a grapefruit with each meal lost about 1.65 kg per month, while those who consumed a glass of grapefruit juice three times a day lost 1.5 kg. The research has shown that there is a physiological link between grapefruit and insulin, because the chemical properties of the citrus fruit reduce insulin levels and encourage weight loss.
