GRAPEFRUIT PICKLE


Today i’m going to give you a recipe for Grapefruit pickle.Grapefruit is low in calories rich

in vitamin C&A,helps in losing fat .Including few slices of grapefruit in your  drinking

water ,makesyou feel lighter,and helps to lose weight.Grapefruit intake ,and inclusion in

salads,juices,not only helps to lose weight ,but regulates insulin levels and lowers blood

pressure ,and prevents stroke.

Those who are under heavy medications like statins,and who have affected kidneys

should avoid grapefruit ,as it may cause adverse reactions,due to its enzyme binding

property.

I used the tropical Indian variety the white one (please check the translation in your

language as there seems to be many names,anyway will upload the image)
