As the temperatures go low our body gains weight, but you can prevent this with the help of grapefruit- a bitter sweet fruit that will keep you safe from the excess winter pounds…
During a study at the University of California, analyzes have been made which have showed that the grapefruit juice maintains the body temperature. Namely, it prevents the synthesis of excess fat consumed through the diet
