    Default Grapefruit Lowers Weight and Reduces Cancer Risk

    I found this article on www.ivillage.com
    http://www.ivillagehealth.com/news/c...644304,00.html

    I lost a lot of weight years ago by eating grapefruit as my main source of calories, it's nice to know that I wasn't too far gone. I think I'll start eating more grapefruit and drinking garapefruit juice along with my other low calorie choices.

    Thanks for the information...but just wanted to caution...I heard, I think Dr Rosenthal on CNN speak about this a couple of weeks ago....if you are on ANY medication at all, that same enzyme can stop medication from working properly....

    Cozyquilter that is true. I know with certain blood pressure pills you cannot have grapefruit in any form.

    Please be very cautious and check out all medication before eating grapefruit.
