Twelve-Day Grapefruit Diet
How great would it be to drop a bunch of unwanted pounds in less than 2 weeks? Naturally, that sounds like a dream-come-true, right? Well, the twelve-day grapefruit diet lays claim to do just that. I’m distrustful of any diet that insists you consume just one certain food, or one food most of the time, but there are unquestionably some health benefits to be found in the delicious citrus fruit we call grapefruit. The grapefruit diet that’s been around for a number of years is also known as the twelve day grapefruit diet since it’s fashioned to be done for 12 days, with 2 days off, then restarted for 12 more days, and so on, till you lose the amount of weight you would like to lose. For the most part, the twelve day grapefruit diet limits your calorie intake to a very minimal eight hundred calories per day. Can you imagine? When you only eat eight hundred calories, whether you include grapefruit or not, you’re bound to lose some weight. However, the twelve day grapefruit diet does have you either consume grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice with every meal. Additionally, it limits the other types of foods you are able to enjoy. For instance, the vegetables you must abandon on the twelve day grapefruit diet include tomatoes, celery, cabbage, peas, cucumbers, green beans and lettuce. That being said, the twelve day grapefruit diet appears very difficult to uphold. Yeah, if you only have a couple of pounds to drop off, you might want to try the grapefruit idea, but as far as applying it as a regular eating plan, that seems foolish. The twelve day grapefruit diet is much too restrictive; it would be hard to find anybody who had the stamina – even people who adore grapefruit – to maintain such limitations for long.
What is beneficial about grapefruit, though? Is not fruit supposed to be good for us? Yes, naturally it is. Grapefruit is a good source of vitamin C. It’s unquestionably low in calories. A lot of people who swear by the greatness of colon cleansing use grapefruit as part of their
cleansing plan. Also, grapefruit seems to decrease the amount of insulin in the bloodstream. This is unquestionably good news for people with diabetes or with a diabetic disposition in their genetic makeup. Besides large amounts of vitamin C and insulin regulation, grapefruit might also help control cholesterol, which is a powerful tool in avoiding heart condition. There’s even some ongoing research that may suggest that grapefruit helps fight cancer because of its DNA-repairing powers. Of course, let’s not forget the basics. The twelve day grapefruit diet will give you fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and folic acid, which are all good. It might not be the best idea to latch onto a particular-food diet as a long-term way to eat, so the twelve-day grapefruit diet shouldn’t be used for a lifelong nutritional plan; all the same, grapefruit unquestionably is yummy and has many health benefits, so go ahead and peel yourself one or slice one in half and dig out the little triangles of deliciousness. Let’s face it the grapefruit would make a great replacement for a mid morning or afternoon snack, in place of an energy drink or candy bar.
