Breakfast [Jun. 17th, 2014|09:24 am]

Ailz tells me my morning glass of pure orange juice contains 11 spoonfuls of sugar.



And I thought I'd made the sensible choice.

I might as well be eating coco pops.

Fruit juice is pretty much the same as soda, nutritionally. Which means that it's perfectly reasonable to have in moderation, but is a problem if you're using it as your primary source of fluids.

One of my friends is a pediatrician, and her children drink a glass of juice a day, as a treat. She dilutes it half-and-half with water, first.

If you enjoy drinking juice, there's no reason to give it up; just be aware what it is that you're drinking.

Ironically, fructose is the second-simplest sugar, after glucose, which means that it actually hits your system even HARDER than refined sugar, which is sucrose. However, there is a lot of other stuff in juice, including, if you have orange juice with pulp, fiber, which spreads out its impact and makes it hit your system less hard.

Thanks for that.

I only drink juice first thing in the morning. It helps me wake up. The brand I buy has "bits" in it.
