Eating FEWER calories than needed, will burn fat. ...Read more

Is grapefruit really an excellent fat burning fruit? What, if any, are other fat burning fruits or foods in general?
Not exactly but...:
Grapefruit doesn't have magical "fat-burning" properties but may help one lose weight as they are low in calories, high in fiber & have beneficial antioxidants. Eating half a grapefruit before meals can fill you up so you consume less high-calorie foods. See http://www. Webmd. Com/diet/ss/slideshow-fat-fighting-foods for other ideas.
