How To Fire Up Grapefruit’s
Pretty impressive list of health benefits, right?
But it gets even better:
Adding one simple ingredient to grapefruit juice can prime your body to burn belly fat.
The secret ingredient?
Drink a mix of 8 oz. of grapefruit juice and 2 Tbs. of olive oil 30 minutes before eating twice daily for 7 days and say bye-bye to embarrassing belly bulges!
This belly fat-melting tonic is effective because the hesperidin from the grapefruit juice and the monounsaturated fats in the olive oil can work together to stimulate the production of bile, a fluid that dissolves toxins and fatty deposits in the liver. (5)
As soon as the liver is rid of excess toxins and fat, it begins metabolizing stored fat — and it first targets the deadly visceral fat that smothers your internal organs and forces your belly to swell and sag over your pants.
Your results may vary, but some women report losing up to 2 inches off their waistline a week after trying this belly-fat melting grapefruit tonic!
