    Grapefruit is great because it has a low glycemic index rating which means that it has a slow effect on blood sugar levels.

    Provided, of course, you're not the type who puts sugar on it

    HAHA RANDOM SPART! BUT NICE TO KNOW. Also Caffine and carbs (sugar hint hint) do not boad well for each other, so if this makes the caffine more prodominant definately stay away from the extra sugar. Coke for that matter too, sugar and caffine is never a good combination. Per Nelson Montana "Caffnee on the physical

    But what may be worst about caffeine is IT SPARES CARBOHYDRATES. So in a sense, caffeine is a terrible choice as a fat loss aid. (ZIP does not contain caffeine for that reason). And just to make things worse, coffee is a phyto-estrogen"

    I HATE GRAPE FRUIT, ESPECIALY WITH OUT SUGAR. Whats wrong with Oranges or lemon with water. If you like the grape fruit it's better than a Twix bar for a treat so go nutz.

    I know of one BBer who swears by a small amount of grapefruit juice with coffee, a fat burner and BCAAs for morning cardio to burn fat, as carbs are the 'fuel' in which fat is burned.

    Not all sugars are the same. Fructose, the sugar in fruit (which is often minimal) does not elicit an insulin response.
