You know how often I see people pick a drink because it "has juice in it" so it must be healthy? Um, not really. So many juice drinks are nothing but water, sugar and a little bit of juice – as seen below in today’s infographic.
If you’re thirsty, the best thing you can do is drink water. If must have juice, pick something that’s 100% juice – or buy a juicer and make your own so you know exactly what you’re drinking.
To reduce the calories in 100% juice, you can dilute it with water or add seltzer to it to make a fizzy drink. Another healthier choice is picking a juice drink like Trop50, which has half the calories and sugar of regular juice and is sweetened with stevia, a natural no calorie sweetener.
