Sneaky Weight Loss Trick

Let me introduce you to the simplest weight loss trick of all time


The next time you are on  diet (calorie restriction), I want you to preload your tummy (20 minutes before a meal) with either:

  1. 1/2 a normal sized grapefruit (GF), or
  2. 127 grams / 4.5 oz of unsweetened grapefruit juice (GFJ), or
  3. 127 grams / 4.5 oz of water

If you do this, you should expect to see these kind of results over the next 2 weeks.

  • average calorie intake decreased by 21% in GF group, 29% in GFJ group, and 28% in water group
  • an increase in “good cholesterol” HDL-C from baseline by 6.2% in the GF group and 8.2% in the GFJ group
  • an average weight loss across all  groups of 7.1% of initial body weight – minimal diff between groups
  • 5.8 ± 3.9 kg weight loss for the GF group,
  • 5.9 ± 3.6 kg weight loss for the GFJ group and
  • 6.7 ± 3.1 kg weight loss for the water group
All thanks to drinking or eating 127 grams of unsweetened grapefruit juice or water 20 minutes before each meal.
Pretty cool.
