Eat the whole fruit and not too much fruit juice

IMG_5698If you are a fruit juice-aholic then read on! Many people do not realise that fruit juice – even the fresh non processed fruit juice contains so much sugar. This is because the skins have been taken off so try and have whole fruit (& veg) with the skin on as it contains the pectin, fibre and antioxidants to provide more slow release energy. Dare I say, a carton of fruit juice can have so much sugar (fructose) in that it will spike your sugar levels and leave you craving more sweet foods.
