Grapefruit: Many studies confirm that grapefruit is an excellent weight loss food. In one study at Johns Hopkins University, women who eat grapefruit daily shed almost 20 pounds on average in only 13 weeks, without changing anything else in their diet or lifestyle.
Tomatoes: Packed with vitamin C and the phytochemical lycopene, tomatoes stimulate the production of the amino acid known as carnitine. Research has shown carnitine helps speed the body’s fat-burning capacity by one third.
Super Health Bonus:
Not only will these fruits help with weight loss, they have plenty of other health benefits too. Avocado is said to help prevent heart disease. Coconuts are said to help prevent cancer. Grapefruit gives the liver a good boost.
Avocado: Is loaded with healthy Omega 9 fatty acids (the same fats found in olive oil, olives, and macadamia nuts), avocados speed the conversion of fat into energy and boost your metabolism.
Coconut: Coconut is rich with medium chain triglycerides known as (MCFAs) which increase the liver’s metabolism by up to 30 percent, according to some experts. They also help keep you full so you’re less likely to snack on junk food. Coconut oil frequently aids the functioning of the thyroid gland. Coconut oil, coconut milk (not the low fat variety), coconut flour, and shredded unsweetened coconut all contain MCFAs.
Lemons: Lemons are a valuable fruit to the body. It helps in digestion and removes constipation. It prevents vomiting, throat trouble, acidity and rheumatism and it destroys intestinal worms.
Though lemon is acidic to the taste, it leaves off alkaline residues in the body. This is why it is useful in all symptoms of acidosis.
Lemon juice is also a powerful antibacterial. It has been proved by experiments that the bacteria of malaria, cholera, diphtheria, typhoid and other deadly diseases are destroyed in lemon juice.
