Grapefruit Juice

Have you ever tried a glass of 100% pure grapefruit juice?  I tried it for the first time about 3 weeks ago.  It wasn't bad.  In fact, not bad at all!!!  I read an article in a magazine that quoted several doctor's (include Dr. Oz) who were mentioning the benefits of Grapefruit.  Here is what the article states.....

1)  Just the scent of Grapefruit can increase alertness by 25% and the effects can last up to 2 hours.
2)  Daily doses of the fruit can improve bone density, by 33%, and strength within 6 weeks.
3)  Grapefruit can reduce your risk for stroke by 19%.
4)  Grapefruit can lower your LDL cholesterol by 20%, results can be seen within 30 days.
5)  21% reduction in heart attack risks.
6)  35% reduction in asthma risk. 
7) 40% drop in breast cancer risk.  Harvard scientists found a protective effect in women who ate 1/4 of a grapefruit daily.
8)  shrinks belly-fat
9)  Fat- Flushing & reduces bloating.

AND....my favorite part....

The article states that if you consume the fruit or the juice before every meal it will help you lose weight.  One women quoted in the article notice changes after 1 week of starting this.  In the first month she dropped 35 pounds, AND she was eating bacon and eggs every morning.  She trimmed 11 inches from her waistline.  She lost 50 quick pounds, and eventually free of diabetes, she is no longer a recluse and she is a million times stronger now. 

So, guess who is putting this bit of information to the test?  Yep, that is me!  I have been drinking about a juice sized glass of 100% pure grapefruit juice 20 minutes before each meal.  My close feel much loser.  Wish me luck!!!!
