Grapefruit Recipe

I forgot to mention on my last entry “Great Foods that will help you lose weight ” that grapefruit is a very important superfoods and can dramatically help you lose weight.

Consuming half of a grapefruit before each meal may help you lose up to a pound a week!

A compound in the tangy fruit can lower insulin, a fat-storage hormone, and that can lead to weight loss. It’s also a good source of protein, and because it’s at least 90% water, it can fill you up so you eat less. And to help you more with grapefruit. Heres a recipe that i tried to make it more exciting and appealing.
