Easy Method To Burning Fat and Lowering Cholesterol

If  you are trying to lose weight and/or lower your  cholesterol, grapefruit should be a major staple in your diet.  A normal size grapefruit is only about 74 calories.  (leave off the sugar and try a little cinnamon)
The major benefits of this fruit are:Grapefruit in Wire Basket
  1. It contains 15 grams of pectin (this fiber is linked to lowering cholesterol and reducing fat).
  2. It is high in viamin C and potassium.
  3. It is fat free and contains no sodium.
Grapefruit is also rich in natural galactronic acid.  This  aids in lowering cholesterol and fat.  It also battles against hardening of the arteries and the development of heart disease.
Before you add grapefruit as a major staple to your diet, check with your doctor to see if it ok.  Grapefruit can cause a bad reaction when taking some medicines.  (I’m on a cholesterol medicine that warns me not to use any grapefruit products.)
Over at WebMd, they explain in further detail ALL the benefits of grapefruit.  If the doctor gives you thumbs up, head to the store and stock up, they last several weeks in the refrigerator.
Grapefruit is a product that can help you lose weight, lower cholesterol, and lower fat.  It’s a great addition to anyone’s diet.
