Don’t drink this…
An 8-ounce serving of orange juice contains 110 calories, of which 96 come from sugar. Ounce for ounce, this is only slightly less than chocolate milk, lemonade, cola and sugary energy drinks.
“The U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines state that adult men need between 2,000 and 3,000 calories per day for weight maintenance, while women need 1,600 to 2,400. This means just one glass of orange juice accounts for 3.6 percent to 6.9 percent of your daily recommended intake.”
Another thing: Fructose, the natural fruit sugar that makes fruit and fruit juice taste sweet, tricks your body into gaining weight by dulling your body’s ability to recognize when it’s full, says Melissa Rifkin, a registered dietitian at Montefiore Medical Center in New York and a Rise nutrition coach. This makes you eat more, and increases your risk of developing insulin resistance and diabetes.
If you’re going to drink fresh juices make it veggie or fruit juice with all the pulp. Fiber is a very important component when it comes to your body processing foods, especially foods high in sugar.
