#5 – Fruit Juices
Even 100% juices can cause your blood sugar to go crazy.
When fruits are juiced, all the fiber is removed so there is no “protection” against your blood sugar spikes.
They are also quickly digested which means we get hungry faster.
- Blend or eat your fruits instead! By tossing a whole apple into a blender or consuming the fruit itself, you are able to benefit from the fiber that makes up the flesh and skin.
- Drink water with fruit infusions. Super easy! Just take a glass of water and toss in your favorite berries or citrus fruit. All the flavor without all the sugar. It’s a win, win.
