People are always trying to lose weight or live healthier lives by trying to remove anything that is unhealthy. They take away chips, sodas, cookies, and basically anything that tastes good! But what if I told you that most people are actually forgetting to remove one item from their diet that is worse than soda! Yep, that’s right, there is actually something that is worse than soda and this item is fruit drinks! It is hard to believe but fruit drinks are the most sugary drinks on the market!
I personally would not have believed it if I wouldn’t have seen it myself. Honestly, grab your nearest fruit drink and compare it with a soda. Fruit drinks actually have more sugar and more calories than the average soda beverage! And I know you’re probably thinking, but it says “made with real fruit juice.” Well, the FDA says that a beverage company can claim their drink is made from real fruit juice as long as it has some fruit juice! That could mean anything! A beverage company could add a dash of fruit juice and claim that it is made from real fruit juice, so don’t be misled by cheap marketing techniques.
Anyways, do not be fooled by fruit beverages people. I know that we all these drinks are healthy for us. But honestly they are nothing but liquid sugar that could lead to diabetes or obesity! So go to your local market and buy some fresh fruit so you can make your own homemade juice. Not only is it healthier, but it contains natural sugars that will not hurt you in the long run.
Now it’s your turn readers, how many glasses of fruit drinks do you consume per day? Leave your comments below!
