If it is at all possible to be in love with the fruit, I have to admit I’m in love with red grapefruit. It all starts with the smell.  I can’t smell a red grapefruit without smiling. 

Eating grapefruit regularly may be beneficial for your immune system. They help break down calories and burn fat! That’s why they say it aids weight loss. 

Its high content of vitamin C, which has antioxidant properties known to protect your cells from harmful bacteria and viruses. Grapefruit also provides small amounts of B vitamins, zinc, copper and iron, which all work together in the body to promote immune system function.

Eating grapefruit may help control insulin levels and it has the ability to reduce your likelihood of becoming insulin resistant. Which coming from a family of diabetics, makes it 1 more reason I love to eat it! Prevention instead of treatment will be my choice every time. 

Ladies if I haven’t given you enough reasons to grab a grapefruit during your next shopping trip, research shows the smell of grapefruit on a woman makes them appear 5 years younger to men! 

*Be careful because when taking certain medications like the heart medicine Procardia, you cannot eat grapefruit. I learned that the hard way during my pregnancy. Grapefruit was my only craving and because I was put on Procardia, I could not eat it! 


  1. I agree with what you said. I can’t wait until your show tomorrow on youtube. Hopefully, you’ll respond like you have done before. Will you send me fanmail back based of you guys meeting me?


  2. Have Jo Marie Payton on your show. I just found out that she’ll be in South Carolina to speak in a college graduation.


  3. I also would love to see Jaleel White on your Podcast. You’ve never had him on it before. I have a question for you: How long does it take for you as a celebrity to respond back to my fanmail? Jaleel is a great young man who is changing others like yourself.


  4. Believe it or not. Grapefruits and apples are my absolute favorite fruits to eat along with watermelons. I love drinking water too.
