Hi

I was told recently that grapefruit juice helps with insulin resistance? Has anyone else been told this before?

I actually don't believe that. First, this list http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_drugs_affected_by_grapefruit shows meds my daughter has been prescribed for seizures, diazepam and tegretol, and the chance of reaction wasn't discussed, and I have been prescribed Oxycodone, hydrocodone and codeine for surgeries and accidents, without mention. Considering that most people don't even follow basic food safe principles, think that epileptics will bite their tongues off, and don't know that the vast majority of people have herpes, I doubt very much that everyone knew this about grapefruit juice.

Everyone. This is pretty common knowledge actually.

No, but I've heard it lowers testosterone.

Sounds like a Tim Ferris hack. He did this before his carb binges to minimize the insulin spike.
