Don’t get mad at me for this one #HealthyFriends but I mean come on! I’ma just come on out with it, It’s time we Eat Whole Fruit instead of Drinking Juice. There I said it. So here’s why…
Despite its convenience (no peeling), juice is a far less healthy option than a real piece of fruit. Not only does the juicing process destroy a number of fruits’ beneficial compounds and antioxidants, it removes nearly all of the natural fiber!
All the sugar with none of the fiber? And you know why you need Fiber…of course you do! Fiber carries a myriad of digestive benefits and is crucial for slowing the absorption of the fruit’s sugar and keeping its glycemic index low. Translation: The Fiber combats the sugar.
Also juice is often marketed as healthy and natural, juice is not a low-calorie beverage. Just eight ounces of regular orange juice, for instance, contains over 110 calories, the equivalent of almost two oranges. However, you won’t feel as filled up, because the juice doesn’t contain any fiber. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that the calories are worth the vitamins — a single orange provides well over the recommended daily intake of vitamin C, and without as high a spike in blood sugar.
Many juices on the market are also a lot less natural than they appear. Some “100 percent juice” products, undergo a unnatural manufacturing process where the juices are squeezed and stored inside giant vats while the fruit’s in season.
It’s probably better to just grab an apple. A bottle of juice can be a more portable source of vitamins than, say, a half-eaten banana. But whenever both are viable options, pick the fruit. The fiber will fill you up, the nutrients are intact, and it still tastes like nature’s candy. So get to eating!!!!#Rowfit35
