To support you in your weight loss (and maintenance) goals, I thought I’d share a simple tip that you can use to speed up the process, in a healthy way!

Eat grapefruits!

Weight Loss Tip Slim Down with Grapefruits - Sophisticated Booty

This miracle fruit belongs to the citrus family, and is an excellent fruit choice. Grapefruits are a great source of the powerful immune boosting antioxidant vitamin C, which also aids in the production of collagen.

Aside from the immune boosting benefits of grapefruits, they are an effective remedy for losing unwanted body fat. One study showed that eating just half of a fresh grapefruit before meals was associated with significant weight loss.

I’ve personally found them to be effective for losing weight. They help with food cravings, and don’t cause a spike in blood sugar levels!

Grapefruits make an easy, healthy, and guilt free snack! Add them to a salad, enjoy a glass of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, or try this Grapefruit Vinaigrette recipe!

Losing excess body fat and maintaining a healthy weight play an important role in optimizing our health. There are endless studies and statistics indicating that being overweight puts you at greater risk of developing an array of health related complications, and illnesses.

Unfortunately, in today’s society, it’s easy to get caught up in the superficial benefits of weight loss. We should be focusing on the health benefits. Maintaining a healthy weight throughout our lives can reduce our risks of developing diseases, and add quality years to our lives.

Developing an understanding of nutrition is critical to your weight loss success. I find, that it’s important to establish a healthy, sensible diet that compliments your lifestyle and unique situation. Keep this in mind as you begin or continue on with your weight loss journey. We want long term weight loss, which means forming healthy, sustainable habits.

Best of Health,
