Grapefruit Burns Fat!

We’ve long known that eating high-fibre, low-glycaemic index (GI) foods such as grapefruit for breakfast can add weight loss by helping you feel fuller for longer and reducing the risk of mid-morning snacking. New research shows that the fat-fighting benefits don’t end there.

A study in the Journal of Nutrition found that a high-fibre, low-GI breakfast may actually enhance fat burning during subsequent bouts of exercise.

Participants in the study undertook a 60 minute workout three hours after breakfast, and the subjects who had eaten a high-fibre, low-GI breakfast burned double the amount of fat compared with those who had eaten a low-fibre, high-GI breakfast.
