Grapefruit may be a good weight loss food, but it doesn’t magically burn calories! The American Dietetic Association states that “…digestion of any food uses a small amount of energy. But no food—or food component—can ‘burn up’ the calories in food or ‘melt away’ body fat.’” Low in calories and sodium, grapefruit is high in potassium and water content; all of which can benefit weight loss. The low calorie count in grapefruit means we can eat grapefruit freely without guilt. Eating any fruit with high water content and potassium boosts water ingestion and helps make one feel full. Research has shown that increasing water consumption can increase energy and speed metabolism. But don’t take that to mean that eating grapefruit is in ANY way a stand in for a balanced diet and exercise regimen, because it’s NOT.
