There are 97 calories in 1 cup of grapefruit. A one cup serving of grapefruit contains 16 grams of sugar.

Half a grapefruit has 52 calories, 8 grams of sugar. It also has 28% of the recommended daily dose of Vitamin A plus 64% of your recommended Vitamin C.

Grapefruit is among a handful of fruits that is one the left side of the PEERtrainer Cheat System.

Grapefruit is one of the most nutrient dense fruits on Dr Fuhrman's food scoring index. (The one featured in every Whole Foods store in the US.)

According to his "nutrient density" system, grapefruit has the same aggregate nutritional score as blueberries, which are a commonly known "superfood."

Isn't The Acid In Grapefruit Bad For You?

While you don't want to go nuts on a "Grapefruit Diet," according to Robert Young, PhD, " although "chemically acid (grapefruit) has "an alkalizing effect when metabolized in the body."

Chemically, grapefruit is similar to lemon and limes, which are both considered a health promoting food in most cultures.

Rich In Lycopene, A Proven Cancer Fighter

The red or pink color of a grapefruit is a marker of important "phytochemicals" (which is the stuff that Dr. Fuhrman measures above and beyond Vitamins and Minerals.)

These phytonutrients are proven cancer fighters. Researchers have shown that people who regularly consume both green tea and lycopene rich foods have a dramatically lower risk of cancer.

Those of you following the PEERtrainer Cheat System will note that both Grapefruit and Green Tea are highly encouraged on our system. (Other fruits and drinks are subtly discouraged in order to get you to focus on these.)

Very Interesting New Research About Inhibiting Tumor Growth

New research just published in December 2010, has helped to shed light on the anti-cancer properties of grapefruit. Grapefruit contains a compound called a "limonoid" which have been shown in this new research to be "very potent" in causing "cell cycle arrest."

Basically what scientists currently think happens is that the limonoids promote the growth of an enzyme which helps make toxic compounds more easily expelled by the body.

All citrus fruits have these (and other) compounds.) Oranges also have similar properties- and have a similar nutritional ranking by Dr. Fuhrman.

recent (7/16/07) bbc article sites grapefruit as possible 'cause' of breast cancer in women. a chemical in grapefruit induces the release of oestrogen, as we know now to possibly be linked with cancer. i would never say to stop eating grapefruit entirely, just don't do a silly grapefruit diet. in all cases, we need diversified sources of nutrition.
