Best metabolism boosting foods - Part 1

Like a lot of us, I'm trying to lose weight and eat healthier so I'm on the constant watch for tips that might help.  I found this series on Today.com and wanted to share.


1. Grapefruit

This is more than a breakfast food — it’s a weight-loss jumpstart! Besides being packed with vitamin C and fiber, this citrus fruit speeds weight loss.  One study found that people who ate half a grapefruit with each meal lost 3.6 pounds, while those who drank a serving of grapefruit juice three times a day lost 3.3 pounds. Many people in the study lost more than 10 pounds — without making any other dietary changes.

Comment:  I will be buying a bag of grapefruit as well as the juice.  Just remember to check with your doctor if you're taking cholesterol meds.  From what I remember reading somewhere, the 2 don't mix.
