The Ultimate Weight-Loss Weapon
Grapefruit contains nootkatones, chemical compounds that animal studies have shown may boost metabolism and promote weight loss. They’re also high in fiber, which keeps you satiated and can help balance blood sugar levels. The basis of this detox revolves around the golden grapefruit rule: Enjoy half a grapefruit with every meal for a week to get an extra dose of nutrients like fiber and vitamins A and C.
