More About The Grapefruit Solution by Daryl L. Thompson; M. Joseph Ahrens
 
 
 
Overview
Grapefruit is back - not as a diet, but as a Trans Diet. The old Grapefruit Diet, first introduced as a quick weight loss fad during the 1920s, received much criticism about its unbelievably restrictive guidelines (as low as 800 calories a day) and how it was nearly impossible to follow. Today's diets, from Atkins to The Zone, have come a long way in offering more sensible nutrition plans, but one thing has remained constant: grapefruit should still be at the core of many diets as the ultimate Trans Diet - a staple fruit that can be incorporated into all major weight loss plans.

In January 2004, the grapefruit buzz surfaced again when Scripps Research Clinic in San Diego released a clinical study showing that the benefits of grapefruit were pulp fact, not fiction. The study proved that grapefruit alone has the chemical properties to cause weight loss and reduce insulin levels. The study, conducted by Florida scientists, discovered a key compound unique to grapefruit, which inhibits an enzyme in the digestive track, and prevents the absorption of excess dietary fats and carbohydrates.

Now those scientists have written "The Grapefruit Solution to tell the whole bittersweet story. Authors Daryl Thompson and Joseph Ahrens, Ph.D., provide fascinating details on the fruit, scientific documentation of its health benefits and explain how grapefruit works as a Trans Diet to accelerate weight loss in conjunction with other blockbuster diets from Atkins to The Zone and all the other diets in between (including Dr. Phil's Shape Up! Program and The South Beach Diet).

Grapefruit is a low glycemic food that facilitates fat burning, saysThompson. This makes it effective for low-carb, low fat and portion control plans. It's also packed with fiber and can be part of most every diet program.

The book details how to incorporate grapefruit into specific diet plans by using the fruit, juice, or CitraSens grapefruit capsules. It also offers a Slim and Trim nutrition and exercise program, more than 100 delicious recipes, diet motivation tips and more.

The Scripps Study proved grapefruit alone could fend off weight gain and contribute to weight loss, says Ahrens. The Johns Hopkins study showed that by combining proper nutrition and grapefruit you could loose 19 pounds or more. Adding exercise to the regimen will give you maximum weight loss effects (25 pounds or more in three months) and substantial, long-term health benefits such as reduction in cholesterol levels.

Grapefruit truly is nature's wonder fruit and "The Grapefruit Solution teaches you everything you need to know to incorporate its benefits into your diet and your life.
