    I love grapefruit. The claims that are made in RE to boosting metabolism, etc are hugely exaggerated though...eat grapefruit if you like grapefruit, but don't think you're just going to magically drop weight because you're doing so.

    If people focused as much attention on just eating a healthy and well balanced diet and hitting their calorie targets as they did trying to boost their metabolism by a couple calories with green tea and grapefruit, people would be a lot better off.

    I think they're delicious and filling. They're my go to healthy evening snack--a great replacement for a night time sweets craving. You should definitely weigh them and enter the calories based on grams, though. I find most of my grapefruits are well over 100 calories when measured that way. Also, I'm too lazy to cut out each section. I usually just cut them into wedges. For weighing and measuring, I weigh the whole grapefruit before cutting and eating (in grams) and then weigh the leftover peel and subtract that to get the amount that I've eaten. It's the lazy, fast way to eat grapefruit! :smile:

    I've eaten grapefruit for as long as I can remember. I think my mom may have had them when I was young because of her diet attempts lol. I like to cut them in half and roast them. Amazingggggggg

    Roast them... Never tried that before, sounds interesting. Do you just put them as is on the grill? do you put anything on it? I love grilled pineapple, gonna have to try this with the grapefruit too... Thanks!

    I eat it because I love the taste but also because I need more fiber in my diet.

    Bought a 10lb bag and the bag was gone by morning. I don't think in that quantity they are good for weight loss, but I enjoyed every bite!!!

    I kind of hate them, to be honest, but I eat them with about a teaspoon of sugar because they're a filling addition to breakfast. For awhile, half a grapefruit with a bit of sugar would be my whole breakfast and I would actually be pretty full til lunch but then I wised up and started adding in more calories. Now I only do that if I have plans for a very splurge-y dinner :D

    I've had grapefruit a few times but im not a huge fan. They aren't worth the effort it takes to eat them, like pomegranates and pineapple.

    I feel like I must be doing something wrong because so many people love grapefruit but every time I try it just has this terrible bitter taste. I want to love it though so I keep trying it!

    I've never had one. But I'm always open to new things. Maybe I'll pick one up when I go grocery shopping.

    Every time I try them I just can't understand how it's possible for anyone to like them lol last time I tried it was slightly better but still too bitter for me to eat more than two bites

    I like pink/red grapefruits, but white ones make me do the face babies make if you let them suck on a lemon wedge.

    Maybe that's why I steer clear... I end up getting really sour ones. yuck! So the pink are sweet and the others aren't. got it :)
