Grapefruit may Help Obesity, Diabetes

Eating or drinking grapefruit may help people who are obese to lose weight, and adding grapefruit to people's diet may also protect them from diabetes. After 12 weeks, those eating grapefruit before their meals had lost an average of 3.6 pounds, and some shed as much as 10 pounds. The researchers believe the weight loss was probably linked to lowered levels of insulin, which was determined by measurements of glucose levels. For more information on insulin’s many effects on health, be sure to read Dr. Rosedale's classic and highly informative insulin lecture.
