To Lose Weight, Avoid These Foods–Even “Healthy” Ones

Juice Is Not As Healthy As Fruit

Some people believe that juice is healthy because it contains fruit, but this is not true. Juice can be so high in sugar that it’s just as bad as soda. In 2017, researchers compared fruit consumption to fruit juice. When adults ate whole fruit, they lost weight; but when they drank 100% fruit juice, they gained weight.

Fruit juice tends to be high in sugar, and the blending process removes some of the fruit’s nutrients and fiber. On the bright side, children can drink juice and remain healthy. A four-year-long cohort study confirmed that juice barely changes weight in children.
