According to The BBC, the grapefruit diet popular so many years ago may actually work. People who ate lots of grapefruit lost more weight than those who didn't. Pretty cool, and I love grapefruit too so yay.
The effect is hypothesized to result from lowering of insulin levels. The thing is, one of the properties of grapefruit, which may or may not be related to its diet-aiding powers, is that it alters the effects of many drugs, causing potentially lethal side effects.
