# It's commendable to refrain from [[squeezing]] a piece of meat, fish, or chicken to get rid of excess gravy if the gravy contains water or wine.<ref>39 Melachos (vol 2, pg 342) </ref>
===Sucking on a fruit===
# One may suck on any fruit except for grapes even though one is extracting liquid with one's mouthwhile holding it in one's hand except for grapes. However, one shouldn’t squeeze the fruit with one’s hand. <Ref>Rama 320:1 quotes two opinions whether it is permitted to suck juice directly from grapes. The reason for the lenient view is that it isn't considered a normal way to squeeze fruit by sucking on it with one's mouth. Mishna Brurah 320:12, Shemirat [[Shabbat]] KeHilchata 5:10, and 39 Melachos (vol 2, pg 339)are strict for grapes. Yalkut Yosef ([[Shabbat]] vol 3 pg 248) and Halichot Olam (vol 4 pg 106) permit even regarding grapes but add that it's a proper practice to refrain. </ref> Certainly though one could put the entire grape in one's mouth, such out the juice and then sit out the part one doesn't want to eat.<Ref>Mishna Brurah 320:12, Yalkut Yosef 320:10</ref> # It’s permitted to dip bread in a soup or other dip and then suck off the liquid, but it’s preferable to eat a little of the bread with it. <Ref> Shemirat [[Shabbat]] KeHilchata 5:9 </ref> 
===Cutting a grapefruit or watermelon===
# It’s permitted to cut a grapefruit (or watermelon) even if liquids will ooze out as long as one doesn’t intend specifically to drink the juices rather to eat the fruit and that one doesn’t intentionally doesn’t squeeze the fruit. <Ref> Shemirat [[Shabbat]] KeHilchata 5:12, Yalkut Yosef ([[Shabbat]], vol 3, pg 345), 39 Melachos (vol 2, pg 340), [ Rabbi Mansour] on </ref>
