At the hospital the other day, I overheard someone asking a patient what kind of juice they wanted with dinner.
The patient explained that they were diabetic and should just have water, but the person taking the order convinced them to order juice anyway because, “they need their vitamins.”
Thing is, 100% fruit juice does contain vitamins and minerals. But on the other hand, it’s a concentrated source of sugar that hits your bloodstream like a bag of Skittles.
On top of this, many juices in the store, only have a small percentage of real fruit juice and the rest is filled with added sugar or high fructose corn syrup.
So, when you take fruit and you squeeze the juice out of it, you leave behind the fiber and a broad range of nutrients.
All that’s left is a super sweet, tasty beverage that contains a lot of calories and doesn’t fill you up. In fact, it ramps up your blood sugar and ensures you’ll crave more sweets in no time.
Instead of drinking juice, get the vitamin and mineral benefit by eating two to three servings of whole fruit every day.
Or, toss some whole fruit in a blender along with some protein powder and unsweetened coconut or almond milk and enjoy yourself a nice smoothie.
