Losing weight gradually, usually 1 to 2 pounds per week, is the healthiest way to reduce your weight. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states those who lose weight gradually are also more successful at keeping the weight off compared to individuals who lose weight quickly. To lose 1 to 2 pounds per week, you need to either reduce your caloric intake or increase calories burned through physical activity by 500 to 1,000 calories per day.

In a study done on 90 fat people, eating just a half of grapefruit before their daily meal caused them to loss s 3.5 pounds that is 1.6 kg over a period of 12 weeks that is 3 months.
