Juice or smoothies?

While drinking juice seems like a healthy, easy alternative to eating the whole fruit, there isn’t much about it that will benefit your health. Making juice involves extracting the liquid (juice) out of a whole fruit and removing the pulp. This may seem like a harmless process but removing the pulp removes the essential nutrients and fibre, leaving you to feel hungry and craving more.

While diet soft drinks don’t have any fat or sugar, it doesn’t mean they’re any better for you than the real thing. Diet soft drinks may seem like the perfect go to if you’re trying to fix your diet and lose weight, but in reality, they’re full of fake ingredients and artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame, cyclamates, saccharin and sucralose.
