Read an exclusive preview of Men's Health's new book, Eat This, Not That! - the no-diet weight-loss solution.
Just call it the better-body fruit. In a study of 100 obese people at the Scripps Clinic in California, those who ate half a grapefruit with each meal lost an average of 3.6 pounds (1.6 kilos) over the course of 12 weeks. Many lost more than 10 pounds. The study’s control group, in contrast, lost a paltry ½ pound. But here’s something better: those who ate the grapefruit also exhibited a decrease in insulin levels, indicating that their bodies had improved upon the ability to metabolise sugar. If you can’t stomach a grapefruit a day, try to find as many ways possible to sneak grapefruit into your diet. Even a moderate increase in grapefruit intake should yield results, not to mention earning you a massive dose of lycopene—the cancer-preventing antioxidant found most commonly in tomatoes.Substitutes: Oranges, watermelon, tomatoesRecipe idea: Skip the morning orange juice and have a grapefruit instead; chop the fruit over a leafy salad; or pop half a grapefruit under the grill for five minutes until caramelised and juicy.
"those who had been drinking five or more cups of tea per day were 26 percent less likely to die of any cause"
There was a letter in the Lancet recently about this sort of statement.
haha! took me several minutes to realise what was wrong with that statement !
well pointed out
I also thought that you could only drink tea, not eat it, so the title "10 foods you should eat every day" is a bit of a misnomer.
Good to know that I am now varying percent less likely to die of any cause depending on my intake of food and amount of daily exercise.
Imagine being immortal though. At what point would it dawn on your that that would be the worst possible fate imaginable? Or would you learn through eons of time to live with it? I suppose you wouldn't have any choice.

Being immortal would be fine so long as you had a really bad memory.
Perhaps that's the way things actually are. We're not going to know any different are we? The Big Bang wasn't the start of everything, just a time when lots of shit was going down. That's what I reckon. Read Spinoza.
