Fruit or Fruit Juice?
How many oranges do you think are squeezed into a 16 ounce bottle of all natural, fresh squeezed, not from concentrate orange juice (what many see as a single serving sized bottle)? 1, 2 – how about 4 or 5! That’s right. A 16 ounce bottle contains 48 grams of sugar (12 teaspoons!!) and close to zero fiber. Think of it as drinking liquid candy. Sugar, processed or natural, is still sugar. It’s addictive so reach for the real fruit and get the liquid candy out of your life.
