You can lose more weight with grapefruit and other citrus fruits, study finds
The combination of grapefruit juice and citrus fruits can help you lose weight, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
In this study, researchers at the University of California, Davis, examined data from nearly 30,000 adults between the ages of 19 and 74 and found that individuals who drank grapefruit or citrus fruit juice lost more weight than individuals who did not.
The study found that participants who consumed grapefruit-derived juices were less likely to have a BMI that was below the 30th percentile, and they had a lower risk of having diabetes and high blood pressure than those who did.
The researchers also found that those who consumed citrus fruits had higher levels of fat-soluble vitamins, including B-vitamins, than those not consuming the juice.
“Our results indicate that the combination of these fruits can improve weight loss in overweight adults,” the authors wrote.
“These results support the hypothesis that a high intake of these nutrients can improve the metabolic health of overweight adults.”
Grapefruit and citrus fruit have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for weight loss and as a means to control blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol levels for more than a thousand years.
The two fruit are also popularly known for their nutritional benefits, including the powerful anti-oxidant properties of the fruit.
Grapefruits are also rich in fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins, which may contribute to weight loss.
This type of research is important because of the growing concern that obesity rates are increasing and that many of the nutrients found in grapefruit can cause weight gain.
While grapefruit has been used as a weight-loss tool for centuries, it has only recently gained popularity as a supplement, which is why the new study found its potential to improve weight control.
“In the past, we were very skeptical about the potential benefits of grapefruits, and there are a number of limitations,” said study author Michael E. Schulze, PhD, associate professor of nutrition at the UC Davis School of Medicine.
“For example, people often eat these fruits with a lot of sugar, which has a negative effect on their blood sugar levels, and people often consume a lot more of them than they should.
These ingredients may be harmful to your body and may increase your risk of diabetes, obesity, and other health problems.
In addition, some studies have shown that grapefruit may contain toxic compounds that can cause gastrointestinal distress.
We also do not know how grapefruit interacts with other foods and supplements.
So, we need to do a lot better to understand the mechanisms behind the health benefits of consuming grapefines.”
The researchers also noted that people who were not eating grapefruit, as opposed to people who ate a variety of foods or drinks, were less obese.
The study also found a significant correlation between the amount of grape juice consumed and weight loss among people who drank the juice, as compared to those who drank a drink containing water or water-based products.
“The grapefruit group was found to have the greatest weight loss after consuming a low-calorie diet, and those in the low-fat group lost more than 30 percent of their body weight after consuming grapefruit,” Schulzes said.
“It’s important to remember that there are different types of weight loss strategies and this one is a good example of the difference between these two approaches.
If you want to lose weight with a high-caloric diet, you need to eat a lot less than if you want a low calorie diet.
That’s why people often choose the low calorie option.”
According to the researchers, the combination is also a good option for people who want to take their diet to the next level.
“It is important to realize that people with diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease can benefit from eating more than one fruit per day,” Schuze said.
“While it may seem that the more grapefruit you eat, the better off you will be, the scientific evidence shows that this is not always the case.
In fact, many studies have found that if you eat more than you should, you may actually have more risk factors for heart disease, diabetes and other diseases.”
