A good grapefruit is heavy for its size.
Citrus fruits, when taken in excess, are known to leech calcium from thebody. All citrus fruits add citric acid to the body and so it's a good idea toget some exercise after having a citrus fruit drink.
You should always remove the rind of grapefruits, oranges and tangerines.Remove the rind, but leave the white membrane as the white membrane containsBioflavonoids. The bioflavonoids help the body absorb and use Vitamin C.
The rind of oranges, grapefruits and tangerines must be removed as the rindis difficult for the human body to digest. The rind can subsequently causerectal problems.
I personally prefer Ruby Red grapefruits.
Drink immediately after juicing to ensure you get all of the Vitamin C.

Have you been wanting to do hatha yoga (stretching) but have found it either too difficult or you are not that flexible? If yes, and even if no, watch Jesse do some pure hatha yoga routines.
flow yoga, each pose in pure or traditional hatha yoga is held for a few minutes. While holding the pose, you focus the mind on the stretch. When you focus the mind, that's when you find silence.
Jesse is not flexible — never has been and probably never will be flexible like others. But it doesn't matter. In pure hatha yoga, how flexible you are makes no difference. It's all about loving the pose and focussing the mind on the stretch.
If you want to learn pure hatha yoga, now you can by following Jesse on a series of hatha yoga routines.
