It Has Been Shown to Aid Weight Loss

Grapefruit is a weight loss friendly food.

It has several properties linked to weight loss, especially its fiber content, which helps promote fullness and reduce calorie intake .

Additionally, grapefruit contains few calories but lots of water, which is another characteristic known to help with weight loss .

Red grapefruit, in particular, surpassed its “blond” cousins in lowering triglycerides.
