A Grape fruit diet plan first introduced in the 1930 by Kelly D. Brownell, PhD was designed to lose large amount of weight in a short period of time. Grapefruit has no fat, low in calories and sodium, and is packed with vitamin C. It also contains enzymes that speed up the way our body burns fat, resulting in quick and easy weight loss. In this diet plan half a grapefruit is prescribed before every meal.
Grapefruit juice decreases the insulin level in the blood, when taken regularly. As it is rich in fibre content, it leads to a better health condition. Regular intake also reduces the risk of diabetes.
Grapefruit is possible to lose up to 10 pounds in 12 days and the best thing about this diet is that it is achieved without any starvation and you will be enjoying normal meals at normal times.
