15 Dangerous Things Nutritionists NEVER Eat – And Neither Should You
‘Boutique’ fruit juices
If there’s anything you can find on the market right now, it’s products labeled as ‘healthy’ or ‘loaded with vitamins’ when all they really offer is artificial flavors and added sugars.
Unfortunately, this includes many boutique fruit juices that seem fresh and healthy too. Although they’re expensive and look very appealing, many of these juices contain plenty of empty calories that make you feel full for a short period of time without actually offering real calories.
De Santis highly recommends eating whole fruits instead of drinking such juices. Firstly, this option allows you to get the full nutritional benefits of the fruit’s skin, which automatically increases satiety. Secondly, eating whole fruits reduces your overall sugar intake because even fresh, authentic fruit juices contain much more fructose than you’d get by eating the whole fruit.
