Eat Florida Grapefruit to Fight Holiday Weight Gain

Florida grapefruitFrom all of us at Florida Orange, we wish you and your family a happy, healthy Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Day kicks off the first of the big three year-end holidays and the beginning of a month-long moveable feast. From the moment we dig into tomorrow's plate of turkey and stuffing, we won't stop eating until the last snack is demolished during the final quarter of the last New Year's Day football game! Or, at least, that's the way it seems.

The holidays are filled with food traditions that we look forward to all year; but overindulging your passion for Christmas cookies or homemade fudge can wreak havoc with your waistline. Most of us gain a little weight over the holidays, but it's easy for a little to turn into a lot if we're not careful. We pay for our overindulgence in January with extra trips to the gym, but adding more Florida citrus fruit -- and especially Florida grapefruit -- to your holiday diet could help keep holiday weight gain under control, enabling you to return to your normal weight faster after the holidays.

In a 2004 study, the Scripps Clinic Metabolic Research Center confirmed that adding fresh Florida grapefruit or grapefruit juice to your daily diet can result in weight loss. Study participants who ate half a grapefruit with every meal lost an average of 3.6 pounds and some as many as 10 pounds.
