We’ve probably all said this before – “This year I’m going to lose weight and get in shape.”
And while this resolution is highly commendable, it’s also one of the most challenging to follow through with. I mean c’mon, there’s delicious blueberry muffins for breakfast, gratifyingly tasty chocolate chip cookies for lunch, and of course we can’t forget those late night munchie runs for potato chips and sweetz.
So…yeah….maybe there are a few food obstacles in our way to becoming those fit and healthy individuals that we always promise to become at the start of the New Year. But don’t fret.
There is a simple and delicious treat that can get us on the path to healthiness – grapefruits. Yup, that’s right. This sweet citrus fruit has a ton of health benefits that can help us all trim down our waistlines a bit.
While we definitely DO NOT recommend those extreme fad diets that encourage you to eat nothing but grapefruits all day, it is safe to say that these cancer-fighting snacks have the potential to help you lose weight. And with our delectable Winter Sweetz™ in season, you’ll have a reason to look forward to that New Year’s resolution of shedding some pounds.
Here’s how grapefruits can help you lose weight.
- Sniff your way to weight loss. Imagine smelling your way to New Year’s resolution success. Well, Japanese researchers speculate that olfactory stimulation (smelling grapefruit oil) has an effect on autonomic nerves, fat metabolism, and appetite, that can help us reduce hunger and help with weight loss. The study also revealed:
- The aroma of grapefruit oil slows down the body’s primary mechanism that gives way to the munchies.
- Plasma glycerol levels become elevated after smelling grapefruit oils, which is a sign of weight loss.
- Enzymes found in grapefruit can help break down body fat.
Let Winter Sweetz™ help you with your New Year’s resolution to lose weight.
Let Winter Sweetz™ help make your 2017 a year to remember. We highly encourage healthy eating and a reasonable amount of exercise because we understand that a healthy you, is a happy you.
